The recent technological innovations in the area of functional genomics, gene expression/transcriptomic profiling can provide new insights to understand the molecular basis of adipogenesis. The focus of this review is to highlight the recent advances in our understanding of the complex interplay...
Self‑determined motivation for language learning: The role of need for cognition and language learning strategiesDownload
Over the last decade, there has been a notable revival of scholarly interest in second language (L2) motivation(see Dörnyei 1998; Oxford 1996a). Since a number of critical reviews of the conceptual and empirical status of L2 motivation theory appeared in the early to mid-1990s (e.g., Crookes and...
There are many reasons, some of which are better than others for sustaining motivation over the long run. Research evidence suggests that a personally relevant, self-engaged, and inherently interested orientation to language study supports engagement in the learning process, and thereby a variety...

The chloroplast NAD(P)H dehydrogenase-like (NDH) complex consists of about 30 subunits from both the nuclear and chloroplast genomes and is ubiquitous across most land plants. In some orchids, such as Phalaenopsis equestris, Dendrobium officinale and Dendrobium catenatum, most of the 11...
A Multilateral Impedance-Controlled System for Haptics-Enabled Surgical Training and Cooperation in Beating-Heart SurgeryDownload
In this paper, an impedance-controlled multi-master/single-slave telerobotic system is developed for haptics-enabled surgical training and cooperation in beating-heart surgery. This system not only can enable automatically motion compensation for the beating heart’s motion as well as...
Haptic-enabled teleoperated surgical systems have the potential to enhance the accuracy and performance of surgical interventions. The user interface of such a system can provide haptic feedback to the surgeon to more intuitively perform surgical tasks. In this paper, we study the added benefits...
Why Don’t “Real Men” Learn Languages? Masculinity Threat and Gender Ideology Suppress Men’s Language Learning MotivationDownload
Large gender disparities in participation still exist across many university subjects and career fields, but few studies have examined factors that account for gender gaps in female-dominated disciplines. We examine one possible cause: threatened masculinity among men who hold traditional gender...
The Na+/H+ exchanger isoform 1 (NHE1) is an integral membrane protein that regulates intracellular pH by extruding an intracellular H+ in exchange for one extracellular Na+. The human NHE1 isoform is involved in heart disease and cell growth and proliferation. Although details of NHE1 regulation...
Meat quality of bison (Bison bison bison) Longissimus thoracis et lumborum following very fast chillingDownload
Very fast chilling (VFC; internal muscle temperature of -1°C by 5 h postmortem) was achieved in the longissimus lumborum (LL), but not in the semimembranosus, of lean bison carcasses after only 4 or 6 h of chilling at -35°C. Rigorous chilling caused a shift in moisture loss from carcass cooler...
