Background:The COVID-19 Epidemic emerged in Wuhan, Hubei province, China. Ever since Wuhan lockdown on January 23rd, mass quarantines were exercised on Wuhan and other epidemic areas of China. We aimed to clarify how ordinary Wuhan people defend against COVID-19 epidemic at home through the Internet survey. Methods:A questionnaire survey, consisting of 30 questions were posted on the Internet. The following aspects were investigated: household preventive measures, self-monitoring of discomfort symptoms, immunity boosting against the epidemic, frequency and reasons of outgoing and mental status of the isolated people. The questionnaire was circulated on Wechat. We marked the areas based on the surveyed network IP addresses and categorized respondents into group A(Wuhan), B(Hubei Province excluding Wuhan ), C, and D based on the epidemic severity of their areas announced by Baidu.com at 17:00 on February 8, 2020. And a comparative study was conducted to illustrate how Wuhan people took the anti-COVID-19 strategies and how efficient these preventive measures were. Findings:In terms of discomfort symptoms, Wuhan, as Group A, had the lowest asymptomatic percentages (70.2%), compared to the average 78.5% (±7%). Considering the three typical symptoms for the COVID-19, i.e., cough, fever and fatigue, Wuhan (9.67%) greatly deviated from the average (7.68%). The fatigue was the most significant factor in the deviation, exceeding the average by 1.35%. In terms of household protection measures, most people or families were able to take effective protection measures with very low frequency of going out, but the percentage of those who took this practice was obviously smaller in Wuhan and Hubei Province. From the aspect of going out, most of the people in Wuhan only went out for shopping and work, with a small number of people for social gathering. In terms of immunity boosting, compared with Group C and D, it was relatively lower in Wuhan. Overall, most people chose to enhance their immunity through regular schedule, exercise, sufficient nutrition. Only 33.44% of people in Group A did not go out, and 59.97% had to go out for living supplies, which was the highest level among the four groups. However, the percentage of people who went out for work and unnecessary activities remains the lowest while 1% of the population went out for public welfare activities, higher than other groups. Worry about the family health topped all the parameters for all the groups. Among them, Wuhan has reached a maximum of 49.61%, higher than the average level of 36.62% (± 10.69%). Mental status except for feeling bored and lonely were the highest in Wuhan. Suggestions:When the epidemic prevention and control is still in a sticky state, and Wuhan started a stricter control measure, the closed management of communities, on Feb 11, 2020, it is expected that our findings can provide some insights into the current household preventive actions and arouse more attentions of the public to some ignored preventive precautions. Unnecessary outgoing should be strictly abandoned. Regular schedule, exercises and nutrition were the top 3 measures participants would choose to enhance their own immunity system. It seems that people in Wuhan would choose nutrition and regular scheduler rather than exercises as the primary immunity-boosting ways. Exercise should be especially advocated as an effective way to enhance the immunity system. In terms of physical condition, people in Wuhan should take more active measures when symptoms occurred. The mentality is also an important aspect requiring intensive attention with the conduct of stricter control management in Wuhan while the rest groups gradually resume to work and ordinary life.

A novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) infectious disease has broken out in Wuhan, Hubei Province since December 2019, and spread rapidly from Wuhan to other areas, which has been listed as an international concerning public health emergency. We compared the Spike proteins from four sources, SARS-CoV-2, SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV and Bat-CoVRaTG13, and found that the SARS-CoV-2 virus sequence had redundant PRRA sequences. Through a series of analyses, we propose the reason why SARS-CoV-2is more infectious than other coronaviruses. And through structure based virtual ligand screening, we foundpotentialfurin inhibitors, which might be used in the treatment of new coronary pneumonia.

Subjects: Psychology >> Cognitive Psychology

以往研究关于提取阶段的干扰是否会影响内隐记忆存在着异义,其中一个重要因素可能源于所采用的内隐记忆测验类型的差异。本研究采用学习-测验范式,通过四个实验,分别考察了提取干扰对识别式知觉内隐测验、识别式概念内隐测验、产生式知觉内隐测验和产生式概念内隐测验的影响,以期对提取干扰和内隐记忆之间的关系有着更全面的了解。结果表明:(1)词汇判断任务(识别式知觉)和语义分类任务(识别式概念)的启动效应在提取干扰下消失了,(2)而产生式词汇判断任务(产生式知觉)和产生式语义分类任务(产生式概念)在提取干扰下仍发现了明显的启动效应,但与无干扰条件相比,启动效应量也有着明显的减少。由此可见,不同类型的内隐记忆都会受到提取干扰的影响,相比于产生式启动,识别式启动更容易受到提取干扰的破坏。

Subjects: Psychology >> Cognitive Psychology

在阅读中,读者既能加工当前注视的中央凹视觉区的信息,也能从副中央凹视觉区提取信息并利用该信息预先加工下文词汇,称为预加工或预视。它是熟练阅读的一个关键环节。对副中央凹信息的预加工涉及预视的空间范围和预视程度(即预视量和预视类型)。在拼音文字阅读的研究中,对预视范围与预视程度如何受中央凹加工负荷和副中央凹预加工负荷的调节存在争议,一个主要的原因是拼音文字词长变异大,在考察预视程度时难以克服预视范围的干扰。而中文中词长变化小,能有效分离预视范围与预视程度。利用中文优势,采用眼动技术来考察:(1)副中央凹预加工负荷如何影响预视范围?(2)中央凹加工负荷如何影响预视范围与预视程度?(3)阅读能力与阅读效率如何调节预视范围与预视程度?研究结果将有助于解决副中央凹预视研究中的理论争论,为预测阅读能力与衡量阅读效率提供更多有效的眼动行为指标。

Subjects: Biology >> Virology

新发传染病爆发流行期间,亟需提出候选药物功效与机制的科学假说。疫苗或新药研发均需要一定时间,因而药物重定位(老药新用)策略有其独特价值。但是新发疾病其病原体、宿主反应的临床数据不充分,制约了候选药物假设的提出。此阶段常根据病人临床特征进行广谱抗病毒药物的尝试。本文借鉴人工智能领域常见的启发式搜索思路,提出一种新方法(aCODE),基于前期有一定疗效提示的广谱抗病毒药,获得其宿主靶蛋白集合,在全基因组尺度上搜索与之相关性最高的基因模块组合,进而对候选化合物(如已批准上市药物、天然产物)进行模式匹配与统计检验排序。本方法可根据临床实践的进展更新输入药物,迭代输出更精准结果,输出的天然产物或中药、药食同源成分结合其它信息后可实施快速测试,形成敏捷研发测试闭环。本方法的第二版更新及其与文献证据的比对分析请参考:http://chinaxiv.org/abs/202002.00024。

动作理解因境而异:动作加工中情境信息的自动整合

针对动作理解的机制,模拟论主张大脑自发模拟他人的动作,就相同的动作其理解也相同,而理论论则认为人们基于合理性原则对他人动作进行推理,相同的动作发生在不同的情境时会有不同的理解。但目前所采用动作材料的运动学特性和发生情境存在共变,其难以区分动作理解是支持模拟论还是理论论。通过两项实验,采用动画制作技术来产生有无约束情境下的追逐动作,以指示动作加工过程的脑电μ抑制为指标,对前述两种观点进行了检验。其中,在约束情境中存在障碍物,追逐者需改变运动方向以绕过障碍物,从后方逐渐趋近目标;而无约束情境中不存在障碍物,但追逐者依然保持与存在约束情景下相同的运动模式。结果发现,当追逐动作发生在存在约束的情境时,其可基于合理性原则推测清晰的动作目标,该条件下的μ抑制程度高于不存在约束情境的条件(实验一);而当仅追逐者运动,即趋近的目标不确定时,虽然有约束和无约束情境间的物理差异与实验一相同,但条件间μ抑制的差异消失(实验二)。其上述μ抑制并非与注意相关的枕叶α活动的泛化。该结果提示,动作发生的情境信息影响人们对动作的理解,即基于推理过程理解动作,支持理论论观点。

Background. The outbreak of COVID-19 started in mid-December 2019 in Wuhan, Central China. Up to February 18, 2020, SARS-CoV-2 has infected more than 70,000 people in China, and another 25 countries across five continents. In this study, we used 93 complete genomes of SARS-CoV-2 from the GISAID EpiFluTM database to decode the evolution and human-to-human transmissions of SARS-CoV-2 in the recent two months. Methods. Alignment of coding-regions was conducted haplotype analyses using DnaSP. Substitution sites were analyzed in codon. Evolutionary analysis of haplotypes used NETWORK. Population size changes were estimated using both DnaSP and Arlequin. Expansion date of population size was calculated based on the expansion parameter tau (τ) using the formula t=τ/2u. Findings. Eight coding-regions have 120 substitution sites, including 79 non-synonymous and 40 synonymous substitutions. Forty-two non-synonymous substitutions changed the biochemical property of amino acids. No evident combination was found. Fifty-eight haplotypes were classified as five groups, and 31 haplotypes were found in samples from both China and other countries, respectively. The rooted network suggested H13 and H35 to be ancestral haplotypes, and H1 (and its descendent haplotypes including all samples from the Hua Nan market) was derived H3 haplotype. Population size of SARS-CoV-2 were estimated to have a recent expansion on 6 January 2020, and an early expansion on 8 December 2019. Interpretation. Genomic variations of SARS-CoV-2 are still low in comparisons with published genomes of SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV. Phyloepidemiologic analyses indicated the SARS-CoV-2 source at the Hua Nan market should be imported from other places. The crowded market boosted SARS-CoV-2 rapid circulations in the market and spread it to the whole city in early December 2019. Furthermore, phyloepidemiologic approaches have recovered specific direction of human-to-human transmissions, and the import sources of international infectious cases.

病毒核酸提取前的高温灭活过程显著降低可检出病毒核酸模板量

张沁欣; 赵庆顺
Subjects: Biology >> Molecular Biology

新冠病毒是病毒感染性肺炎(COVID-19)的病原体。然而,新冠病毒核酸临床检出的假阴性率很高。假阴性意味着漏检,不仅会导致疑似患者不能快速确诊,而且会使漏检者成为潜在的病毒传染源。因此,提高新冠病毒核酸检出率十分迫切。目前国家卫健委相关指南要求在提取样本核酸前需将样本置于56℃以上以灭活病毒。这一灭活过程无疑是保护临检人员免受病毒暴露所必需,但也会破坏病毒核酸的完整性,导致部分样品不能被正常检出,成为高假阴性率的原因之一。最近,我们以猪PDEV冠状病毒(疫苗)作为模型研究了高温灭活过程对病毒核酸完整性的影响。结果表明:保存在常用等渗盐溶液Hank’s液中的样品经56℃孵育30分钟后可检出冠状病毒核酸损坏了一半,而以92℃孵育5分钟,则可检出的冠状病毒核酸损失了96%以上。当采用一款市售的R503样品保存液保存PEDV时,经56℃孵育30分钟后病毒核酸可检出量是Hank’s液的3倍,若是92℃孵育5分钟,则可检出量是Hank’s液的42倍。这些结果提示,使用可有效保护样本RNA特别是避免样本RNA在高温灭活时受损的样品保存液,不但可以让临检人员依然能够在高温灭活后使用样品,还有望提高阳性检出率。
