    With the rapid growth of China's economy and the continuous urbanization, rail transit plays an increasingly important role in residents' travel. As a key factor affecting the operation efficiency and service level of urban rail transit,accurate passenger flow prediction has attracted increasing attention from operation managers and researchers. To improve the prediction accuracy of the urban rail transit passenger flow, this paper combines sparrow search algorithm (SSA) and long short-term memory network (LSTM) and proposed a SSA-LSTM combined model. Based on the passenger flow data obtained from four stations of Hangzhou Metro Line 1 and the selected factors affecting the rail transit passenger flow, we used the proposed SSA-LSTM model to predict the short-term passenger flow of relevant stations. Then, we compared the predicted results with those estimated by the LSTM, GA-LSTM, and PSO-LSTM models. Results show that the prediction accuracy of the proposed model is 16.0%, 8.8%, and 2.3%, higher than the aforementioned models, respectively; furthermore, the proposed method exhibited better performance in terms of the root mean square error. Thus, the proposed model has potential applicationin predicting the urban rail transit passenger flow. Moreover, it can assistoperation managers in improving the operation efficiency and service level of urban rail transit.

    This study proposes an efficient wave sensor fault diagnosis method based on wavelet packet decomposition, dimension reduction, and k-nearest neighbor algorithm(KNN) classification network to address the difficulty of wave sensor fault diagnosis, unidentifiable fault types, and time-consuming diagnosis. First, the standard deviation of the original signal is normalized. The normalized data is then subjected to a three-layer wavelet packet decomposition. The extracted feature vectors represent normalized data from the eight bands on layer 3. The second step involves using the t-distributed stochastic neighbor embedding (t-SNE) algorithm to reduce the dimension of the feature data. Finally, the dimension-reduced feature data is input into the KNN classification network for fault classification and detection. Experimental results show that the proposed method can improve the accuracy and diagnosis speed of the wave sensor fault diagnosis, with a diagnosis accuracy of up to 93.55% for normal and six faulty conditions.

    This study aimed to analyze the active ingredients of Xiangsha Liujunzi Decoction and its molecular mechanism in treating Helicobacter pylori-associated gastritis using network pharmacology and molecular docking. The drug active compounds, drug target genes, and disease-related targets of H. pylori-associated gastritis in Xiangsha Liujunzi Decoction were screened using Traditional Chinese Medicine Systems Pharmacology Database and Analysis Platform, GeneCards database, and OMIM database, and the drug targets and disease-related targets were analyzed using Venn analysis. Cytoscape software and STRING database were used to construct drug-compound potential target interaction network and protein-protein interaction network, respectively. Gene Ontology function and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes pathway enrichment analysis were performed for intersection targets using the DAVID database. The key components and targets were docked using AutoDock PyMOL and other software. The apoptosis rate was determined with Jimsa staining and CCK-8 assay, and the expressions of the related target proteins were detected with western blot. Finally, 122 active compounds, such as quercetin, luteolin, and kaempferol, in Xiangsha Liujunzi Decoction were screened out. These genes may be involved in the treatment of H. pylori-associated gastritis by acting on 101 potential targets, such as STAT3, TP53, and AKT1, as well as 109 pathways, such as toll-like receptor, TNF, and T-cell receptor signaling pathways. Molecular docking showed that quercetin, β-sitosterol, and luteolin had good affinity for the target proteins STAT3, TP53, and AKT1. Compared with the model group, after treatment with Xiangsha Liujunzi Decoction, the nuclear hyperchromism of GES-1 cells was enhanced, the apoptosis rate was significantly decreased, and the expression of p-STAT3 was also significantly decreased. Based on these findings, it can be concluded that Xiangsha Liujunzi Decoction exerts antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects in the treatment of H. pylori-associated gastritis in multiple ways via multiple components and targets.

    LI Wei, ZHANG Shoushuai
    Shandong Science    2023, 36 (5): 85-92.   DOI: 10.3976/j.issn.1002-4026.2023.05.011

    The passing capacity of several busy high-speed railway lines in China is declining, and reducing train headway can considerably improve train density.However, optimizing the control method for train control systems is important to reduce the headway. On one hand, the commonly employed “hit-hard-wall” control mode has redundancies, rendering it inefficient. On the other hand,the “hit-soft-wall” control mode cannot ensure the absolute safety of train operation. Therefore, this paper proposes a combined“hit-hard-wall” and “hit-soft-wall” control mode, which reduces train tracking interval while ensuring the absolute safety of the train. Further, basic principles for optimizing this control mode are presented herein.In addition, solutions for problems such as the inability to determine the speed of the preceding train and to fulfill control curve constraints under this mode are explored.The solutions include track circuit information-based train speed estimation and control curve generation techniques that satisfy relevant constraints. Considering the CRH380BL train as an example, a solution was developed to obtain recommended values for train control deceleration.Consequently, the train tracking interval on straight tracks was reduced by 3035 meters, and the interval tracking time was reduced by 31 seconds through the proposed control mode. This is of great significance for improving the operational efficiency and passing capacity of high-speed railway lines.

    Using the datasets of major air pollutants and meteorological observations during the winter from 2016 to 2018 in Jinan, the characteristics of air pollution were analyzed to identify the major transport pathway of airmass. The results showed that during the winter from 2016 to 2018 in Jinan, about 63.8% and 34.7% of the major pollutants were PM2.5 and PM10, respectively. Of the total number of days, 58.6% had a pollution level worse than good polluted. The annual average concentration of PM2.5 increased by 7.5 μg/m3 due to its high concentration in the winter. In terms of spatial distribution, the concentrations of PM10 and PM2.5 were high inTianqiao District, Huaiyin District, and Pingyin County; the concentration of SO2 was high in Shanghe County and Jiyang District; and the concentrations of NO2 and CO were high in Jiyang District, Tianqiao District and Huaiyin District. The results also showed that ρ(NO2), ρ(CO), ρ(PM10), and ρ(PM2.5) had a positive correlation, with all r >0.7. It was inferred that traffic source, industrial combustion source, and burning coal were the major sources of particulate matter. The airmass in the winter of Jinan came from south, northwest, north, and east, and the airmass from south and east were the major transport pathway of air pollution. Further analyses of the potential source contribution and concentration weight showed that the air pollution in Jinan City was affected by the local and surrounding cities, and the current air pollution presents the characteristics of cross-contamination across regions. Therefore, a supervision and coordination mechanism for the joint prevention and control of air pollution in the region should be established to coordinate research and solve growing problems of air pollution.

    To study the influence of carbon tax on the relation between residents' commuting travel choices and social welfare in the process of optimizing customized bus fares for commuter corridors, a two-tier planning model that considers the flexible passenger flow demand and overall social welfare of corridors is established. The upper layer of the model decides the departure location and customized bus fare, and the lower layer is the flexible demand passenger flow allocation model, considering both customized bus and private carbon the commuter corridor. From the perspective of residents' travel satisfaction, the relationship between random passenger flow demand and ticket price was analyzed in the context of carbon tax. According to different passenger departure points, the passenger flow demand is refined as the input of the passenger flow allocation model of the lower elastic demand. Considering the relationship among the passenger flow demand, road congestion, passenger satisfaction, and social welfare, the welfare of corridor passenger transportation system is set as the optimization goal of the upper model. The measurement statistical analysis and particle swarm algorithm are used to solve the two-layer programming model. The calculation results show that the optimized social welfare is considerably improved, the road traffic conditions are significantly improved, and the progressive carbon tax shows positive effect on increasing the sharing rate of customized buses. Under the carbon tax setting, the optimized customized bus fares and departure locations can serve social welfare and reduce the operating costs of urban passenger transportation systems.

    This study aimed to investigate the effect of Gandouling tablet on neuroinflammation in hepatolenticular degeneration in TX mice and mechanism of generating CuCl2-induced microglia inflammatory response based on TLR4/NF-κB/NLRP3 signaling pathway. TX mice were divided into control, model, Gandouling tablet low-dose, Gandouling tablet medium-dose, Gandouling tablet high-dose, and penicilamine groups. BV2 cells were divided into control, model, Gandouling tablet, TAK-242, and Gandouling tablet + TAK-242 groups. Hematoxylin and eosin staining was performed to detect histopathological changes in the hippocampus of mice in each group. Western blot was used to detect the expressions of TLR4, p65, NLRP3, and IL-1β in hippocampal tissue and BV2 cells of mice in each group. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was performed to quantify TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6 levels in hippocampal tissue and BV2 cells of mice in each group. Real-time polymerase chain reaction was used to determine the expression of TLR4, p65, NLRP3, TNF-α, and IL-1β mRNA in all groups of BV2 cells. Compared with the control group, hippocampal tissue in the model group showed considerable inflammatory damage; increased protein expressions of TLR4, p65, NLRP3, and IL-1β; and significantly increased levels of TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-6 (P<0.05). Compared with the model group, the pathological damage of hippocampal tissue improved in both Gandouling tablet and penicillamine groups, and the effect of Gandouling tablet in the Gandouling tablet high-dose group was more prominent than that in the other groups. The Gandouling tablet and TAK-242 groups inhibited the activation of BV2 cells. Additionally, the expression of TLR4, p65, NLRP3, and IL-1β protein and mRNA were significantly reduced in these two groups as compared with the model group, and TNF-α, IL-1β and IL-6 levels were significantly decreased (P < 0.05). Gandouling tablet can alleviate hippocampal inflammation and inhibit CuCl2-induced hyperactivation of BV2 cells in TX mice probably by downregulating TLR4/NF-κB/NLRP3 signaling pathway.

    Shandong Science    2023, 36 (5): 44-51.   DOI: 10.3976/j.issn.1002-4026.2023.05.006

    The traditional maximum power point tracking (MPPT) algorithm is prone to fall into local optimization in the case of a multipeak photovoltaic array. The butterfly optimization algorithm has a strong global search capability and a relatively stable convergence process; however, it has not been widely used due to its low convergence accuracy. This paper proposes an MPPT algorithm that combines the improved butterfly optimization algorithm with the perturbation and observation method. The traditional butterfly optimization algorithm was optimized by introducing the chaotic mapping theory to improve the distribution of the initial butterfly population. Besides, the dynamic switching probability was used to optimize the switching strategy. Herein, first, the global search capability of the butterfly optimization algorithm was used to locate the range of the maximum power point, and then the small step size perturbation and disturbance observation method were used to accurately locate the maximum power point. This algorithm combines the advantages of the global optimization of the butterfly optimization algorithm and the precise optimization of the perturbation and observation method. Furthermore, Simulink simulation experiments were conducted, and the results were compared with the traditional butterfly optimization algorithm and particle swarm optimization algorithm. The results show that the improved algorithm can adapt to complex and changing light conditions and has certain advantages in both convergence accuracy and speed.

    For the identification of potential biomarkers for ulcerative colitis (UC) and prediction of their targeted traditional Chinese medicines, datasets containing human UC and healthy control tissues (GSE179285, GSE206285, and GSE87466) were downloaded from the GEO database. The GSE179285 and GSE206285 datasets were merged, and the differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between UC and healthy control tissues were screened using the limma R package. The LASSO regression model and SVM-RFE (support vector machine recursive feature elimination) algorithm were used to identify core biomarkers. The GSE87466 dataset was used as a validation cohort, and the ROC (receiver operating characteristic) curve was used to evaluate the diagnostic performance. CIBERSORT was used to investigate the immune infiltration characteristics in UC, and the correlation between potential biomarkers and different immune cells was further analyzed. Subsequently, the targeted traditional Chinese medicinal herbs were predicted using the HERB database. In total, 157 DEGs were screened out, with 102 genes upregulated and 55 genes downregulated. Functional enrichment analysis showed that these DEGs were mainly involved in IL-17 and TNF signaling pathway, rheumatoid arthritis, chemokine signaling pathway, humoral immune response, neutrophil chemotaxis, neutrophil migration, etc. LOC389023, OLFM4, AQP8, and CWH43 were identified as potential biomarkers for UC, and their diagnostic values were significant in the GSE87466 validation dataset. CIBERSORT immune infiltrate analysis showed significant differences in immune infiltration characteristics between UC and healthy control tissues. High levels of CD4+ memory activated T cells, M1 macrophages, and neutrophils were found in the UC group, while high levels of memory B cells, CD4+ memory resting T cells, M2 macrophages, and resting dendritic cells were found in the healthy control group. Seven traditional Chinese medicinal herbs targeting core biomarkers, including Sojae Semen Praeparatum, Fructus Viticis Cannabifoliae, Herba Equiseti Palustris, Liquor, Sophora alopecuroides L., Cervi Cornu Pantotrichum, and Placenta Hominis, were predicted in the HERB database. The study suggested that LOC389023, OLFM4, AQP8, and CWH43 were identified as diagnostic biomarkers for UC, and the aforementioned seven targeted traditional Chinese medicinal herbs may play a therapeutic role in UC by regulating gut microbiota, affecting inflammation pathways, and modulating the immune system.

    During oilfield workover, it is necessary to control the gel breaking speed of the temporary plugging agent, so that the gel is not broken during the workover to ensure the completion of the operation and is broken quickly after the workover to resume production. For traditional gel breakers, it is difficult to achieve a slow release at the initial stage and a fast release at the late of the workover. This paper describes a cellulose-based sustained-release encapsulated gel breaker with a double-layer film. This gel breaker is evenly mixed with molted Carnauba wax and the solid dispersion pellet is made using the extrusion-speronization method. In the Wurster fluidized bed, a double-layer film with different components is put on the pellet to prepare the sustained-release encapsulated gel breaker. The result of the orthogonal test shows that this method is reliable, the yield of the pellet is 93.2%. SEM result shows that the film on the surface of the pellet is smooth and uniform, and the sealing and unblocking of the film pores are crucial to sustained-release. The results of sustained-release test and simulation test of reservoir gel breaking exhibit that the sustained-release encapsulated gel breaker has an excellent controlled-release effect and reservoir permeability recovery effect. Herein, the preparation method is simple and efficient. The sustained-release of drugs is mainly controlled by the double-layer film.

    To investigate the protective effect of quercetin on nephrotic syndrome model rats. Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) male rats were selected, and a single tail vein injection of adriamycin 6.5 mg/kg was used to induce nephrotic syndrome in the rat model. Urine was collected to determine 24 h urine protein concentrations, and the contents of blood biochemical serum total protein and albumin, total cholesterol, triglyceride levels, and renal function markers (blood urea nitrogen and serum creatinine) were analyzed. The pathological changes in renal tissue were observed by hematoxylin and eosin staining. Transmission electron microscopy was used to examine the ultrastructure of renal podocytes. Western blot was used to detect the expression of desmin, nephrin, and synaptopodin in renal tissue. The results showed that quercetin effectively alleviated 24 h urinary protein in nephrotic syndrome model rats, significantly improved blood biochemical indicators and renal function injury, and alleviated pathological changes in renal tissue and the foot process fusion of renal podocytes. Simultaneously, quercetin can reduce the expression of desmin and increase the expression of nephrin and synaptopodin. Quercetin can effectively treat nephrotic syndrome model rats induced by adriamycin, and it may play a protective role by stabilizing the normal structure and function of podocytes.

    The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism of action of Sanhuang Xiexin Decoction in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD) using a network pharmacology approach. The active ingredients and targets of the Sanhuang Xiexin decoction were examined and screened using the systematic pharmacology database and the analysis platform of traditional Chinese medicine. AD-related targets were retrieved and screened through Gene Cards database, and drug and disease intersection targets were obtained through through Venn diagram.The STRING database was used to obtain the network information of protein-protein interaction (PPI). The Cytoscape was used to construct drugs-active ingredients-target-disease network and PPI,and DAVID database was used to analyze common targets in gene ontology (GO) and Kyoto encyclopedia of genes and genomes (KEGG). Furthermore, the Sybyl-x 2.1.1 software was used for molecular docking validation. The screening yielded 47 active ingredients and 71 related targets. Herein,the main active ingredients were quercetin, β-sitosterol, wogonin, baicalein, rivularin, and moslosooflavone; and the core targets were IL-6,TNF,IL-1β,VEGFA,TP53.The GO function enrichment analysis predominantly involved biological processes including drug response, hypoxia response, positive regulation of cell migration,and positive regulation of nitric oxide biosynthesis.KEGG analysis mainly involved pathways such as cancer pathways, HIF-1 signaling pathways, and TNF signaling pathways.Molecular docking results showed the presence of a relatively strong binding ability between the core target and the core compounds, such as β-sitosterol and rivularin.This study preliminarily explained that the Sanhuang Xiexin Decoction can interfere with AD by modulating HIF-1, TNF, and other signaling pathways, thereby inhibiting Aβ aggregation and tau phosphorylation, blocking acetylcholinesterase activation, and suppressing inflammation.

    To explore the effect of different slicing methods on the drying characteristics of Salviae Miltiorrhizae Radix Et Rhizoma, the hot air drying at 40 ℃ and traditional air drying at room temperature were performed and the results were compared. Furthermore, the effect of different slicing methods (circular cutting and 45° oblique cutting) and slice thickness (2, 4, and 6 mm) on the drying characteristics of Salviae Miltiorrhizae Radix Et Rhizoma were investigated. Several water-loss kinetic models were adopted to quantitatively describe the drying characteristics. Results showed that the drying was mainly a falling rate period. The drying rate decreased with the decrease of the moisture content of the dry basis. Furthermore, the larger the slice thickness, the lower the drying rate and the longer the drying time. According to statistical parameters, the Page model predicted and described the drying process more accurately than others. The predicted value of the model was in good agreement with the experimental value, and it could well describe the drying process for different slicing methods. The research provides a guidance for further investigating Salviae Miltiorrhizae Radix Et Rhizoma.

    To analyze and predict the potential quality markers (Q-Marker) in Zingiberis Rhizoma based on fingerprints and network pharmacological methods. The fingerprints of 10 batches of Zingiberis Rhizoma slices were established by ultra performance liquid chromatography and the common peaks were identified; then the network diagram of active ingredient target pathway was constructed by network pharmacological method to predict the quality markers of Zingiberis Rhizoma; and the bioactivity of Q-Marker was verified by molecular docking method. Fingerprints of 10 batches of dried ginger were established, and 17 peaks were identified. Five chromatographic peaks were identified by the reference substances of Zingiberis Rhizoma, which were 6-gingerol, 8-gingerol, 10-gingerol, 6-shogaol, and 8-shogaol. The results of network pharmacology showed that these 5 components can act on 35 core targets, and 20 key pathways which play an anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant role. Molecular docking showed that these 5 components had strong binding capacity with core targets and had good biological activity. It was preliminarily predicted that these five substances could be used as quality markers of dried ginger. Predicting the quality markers of Zingiberis Rhizoma by fingerprint and network pharmacology analysis will provide a reference for the quality control of Zingiberis Rhizoma and for further study on its pharmacodynamic mechanism.

    To reveal the multiscale variation law of extreme precipitation events under climate warming, based on the daily precipitation data of the National Meteorological Station from 1961 to 2020, the spatiotemporal variation characteristics of extreme precipitation events on the monthly scale in Shandong Province were analyzed using the percentile relative threshold method. The results show that the monthly-scale extreme precipitation events in Shandong Province mainly occurred in July and August with the annual frequency bigger than 40%. The annual frequency showed a decreasing trend as one moves from southeast to northwest regions. The annual frequency and precipitation of extreme precipitation events increased in most areas for all seasons except autumn and considerably increased in winter. After the mid-1980s, extreme precipitation events have generally increased and intensified, and their interannual changes have increased significantly. The intensity of extreme precipitation in summer and winter increased significantly by 10 mm to 20 mm during 10 years in summer in the central, southwestern, and peninsular areas of Shandong and 20% to 50% in winter months in Shandong province. The precipitation instability generally increases under climate warming in Shandong, and it is necessary to strengthen early warning and defense services for disaster risks such as rainstorm, flood, and blizzard.

    Current studies on epidemic spreading in multilayer networks are conducted on static networks. However, most of the real-world networks exhibit temporal properties, and extensive research on epidemic spreading in dynamic multilayer networks is not yet done. This work investigates the epidemic spreading behavior of epidemic and information interactions in a two-layer network model combining dynamic and static networks. It was found that the network structure, routing strategy, information transmission probability, and degree of epidemic suppression had a significant impact on the threshold of epidemic spreading. When information completely suppresses the epidemic, the self-awareness rate can effectively control the scale of the epidemic infection. This paper also studies the interaction between epidemic spreading and traffic dynamics by adjusting the node movement speed and contact radius of the dynamic network of thee pidemic layer and finds that the epidemic spreading threshold decreases as the node movement speed increases, whereas the outbreak of the epidemic is effectively suppressed as the contact radius increases.

    Water dynamics analysis was conducted on a compact and portable autonomous underwater vehicle(AUV) with side-scan sonar and amodified AUV with streamlined side-scan sonar. The analysis focused on examining the drag forces experienced by both AUVs at different speeds. The results demonstrated that the streamlined side-scan sonar effectively reduced pressure and viscous drag forces, resulting in an overall drag reduction of 15.4% at a normal speed of 3 knots, with a 9% reduction in viscous drag and an 18% reduction in pressure drag.At a high speed of 6 knots, the overall drag was reduced by 10.1%, with a 4.2% reduction in viscous drag and a 12% reduction in pressure drag. These findings demonstrate that optimizing the streamlined design of the AUV with side-scan sonar can effectively enhance the dynamic performance of the AUV, reduce its drag force, and improve its efficiency and performance.

    To investigate surface movement and deformation characteristics due to continuous mining and continuous backfilling (CMCB)of coal under artificial lakes, laboratory and field coring mechanical tests were conducted on the CMCB area to verify the feasibility of the filling body. Based on the equivalent mining height probability integration method, the surface subsidence of the CMCB area was predicted. The height of the water-conducting fracture zone was analyzed using numerical simulation, and its results were compared with those of the probability integration method. The results show that the strength of the filling body is 5.063 MPa, which is higher than the designed strength of 2.0 MPa, ensuring safe mining.Owing to continuous mining and backfilling in the area, the maximum inclination value of the surface was 0.3 mm/m and the maximum horizontal deformation value of the surface was -0.2 mm/m, respectively, which is less than the range of grade Ⅰ damage to brick and concrete structures. The surrounding surface subsidence was gentle, and there was no safety hazard. The height of the water-conducting fracture zone was about 49.7 m, and the distance from the waterproof layer was about 160.3 m, indicating the safety of underwater coal mining. Results of the FLAC3D numerical simulation and probability integration method were close, thereby verifying that the CMCB technology can effectively slow down surface movement and deformation.

    This paper proposes an artificial neural network-based fault detection and prediction model for on-load transformers using distributed fiber optic sensing technology. By artificially simulating the fault and normal operating states of transformers and using the k-means synthetic minority oversampling technique data expansion method, a small number of fault datasets can be limitedly expanded so that the amount of fault data can be consistent with that of normal data. Therefore, the expanded fault data and normal operation data can be input into the convolutional neural networks long short term memory identification model. Finally, the fault recognition rate can be increased to 100%, which has significant implications for the development of fault recognition systems for on-load transformers based on distributed fiber optic sensing technology.

The chemical composition of Elephantopus scaber L. was determined based on literature research, the active ingredients were screened using the SwissADME database, and the targets were predicted by SwissTargetPrediction database. The GeneCards, Disgenet, PharmGKB, and TTD databases were used to obtain the relevant targets for UC, and the topological analysis was performed. The Metascape database was used to perform Gene Ontology (GO) function and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) was used for biological pathway enrichment analysis on the candidate targets. In addition, the RCSB PDB database and Chemdraw, PyMoL, AutoDock 4.2.6 was used for molecular docking validation and visualization of core components and key targets. 34 potential targets were screened out, and GO function and KEGG pathway enrichment analysis were performed on the key targets. The results showed that Elephantopus scaber L. can regulate systemic processes, negatively regulate the response to external stimuli, and regulate apoptosis signaling pathways. MAPK3, PIK3CA, STAT3, and JAK2 are regulated by biological processes such as responses to mechanical stimuli. Therefore it participates in the regulation of various KEGG signaling pathways, such as cancer signaling pathway, PI3K-Akt signaling pathway, NF-κB signaling pathway, Helicobacter pylori infection epithelial cell signaling pathway, calcium signaling pathway, etc. to treat UC.The molecular docking results showed that each active ingredient had good affinity to the key targets. The mechanism of Elephantopus scaber L. in treating UC may be related to inhibiting the expression of MAPK3, PIK3CA, STAT3 and other targets, and relieving the inflammatory reaction of colon tissue.

At 6 dpf, zebrafish behavior was monitored and analyzed using zebrafish light-dark locomotion test. Aβ deposition in zebrafish heads was assayed by thioflavin S staining. Acetylcholine assay kit tested acetylcholinesterase (AchE) activity. In addition, the expression of autophagy-related genes(beclin1ulk1bulk2 and atg7) was tested by real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction. Molecular docking was performed to validate the interaction between oroxin A and autophagy-related protein(beclin1、ulk1b、ulk2 and atg7). The results indicated that oroxin A significantly relieved the dyskinesia and inhibited Aβ deposition and AchE activity of zebrafish induced by AlCl3. The expression of autophagy-related genes tended to be normal after oroxin A treatment. This study preliminarily revealed that oroxin A alleviated AlCl3-induced AD symptoms in zebrafish, where the underlying mechanism of action is possibly associated with activated autophagy, providing a theoretical basis for the clinical application of oroxin A and its related research in treating AD.

    Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have considerable application potential in urban logistics delivery. However, there are many uncertainties in urban low-altitude airspace operation scenarios. Therefore, it is essential to build a safe and orderly logistics UAV delivery network using scientific methods. From the perspectives of delivery economy, operational safety, and features of logistics UAVs, an integer programming model of multilevel hub-and-spoke network was constructed based on the original ground logistics delivery network. A network construction method was proposed, which combines partitioning around medoids(PAM) clustering with distance restrictions and integer programming. Three evaluation indicators were selected, i.e., delivery timeliness, network security, and network structure characteristics, to compare the constructed logistics UAV delivery network with the original ground delivery network. A logistics UAV delivery network was constructed in Jiangning District of Nanjing city to verify the feasibility of the proposed network construction method. The experimental results show that the UAV delivery network constructed using this method has good delivery timeliness while taking delivery costs and safety into account.

    An accurate prediction of short-term subway passenger flowscan effectively alleviate traffic congestion and improve the quality of travel services for urban residents. Herein, we propose a multitask learning-based model for the prediction of short-term subway passenger flows, which uses a residual convolutional neural network (NN) and a nested long short-term memory NN to extract the spatio-temporal correlation of traffic patterns, and introduces an attention mechanism to enhance the feature extraction performance of the NNs. Considering the characteristics of subway operations, the model selects train operation features, bus stops around subway stations, and point of interest data as external features to improve the accuracy of the prediction. Based on the historical data of the Beijing Subway, experiments were conducted in multiple time granularity scenarios, such as 10, 30, and 60 min. The results showed that the methodsuccessfully modeled and analyzed the inflow-outflow interaction through multitask learning, improved the prediction performance and generalization ability of the model, and providednovel approaches for the prediction of short-term subway passenger flows.

    Phylloporia ribis, a type of medicinal and edible fungus that parasitizes the phloem of Lonicera japonica rootstock for more than 5 years, has anti-inflammatory and antiviral effects. In this study, four types of liquid media(PD, LPD,MF,LMF) were used for its artificial culture. Furthermore, the effects of different media on the contents of triterpene polysaccharide and adenosine in the biomass were investigated. The results showed that the polysaccharide contents of Phylloporia ribis were high in PD and LPD media (2.910 mg/g and 2.708 mg/g, respectively). The biomass, triterpenoid, and adenosine contents of Phylloporia ribis in LMF medium were 3.280 mg/g, 6.426 mg/g, and 3.182 mg/g, respectively, which were higher than those in the other three media. This study provides a reference for the large-scale artificial cultivation of Phylloporia ribis.
