Abstract ( 629 )
At the opening of the 7th National Congress of CAST, three wishes for the development of CAST are expressed: the science popularization will be augmented; CAST will become the think tank of the CPC and the government; CAST will focus on not only science and technology, but also education. Lastly, several problems in Chinese higher education those holding back the sci-tech innovation are enumerated and analyzed.

Abstract ( 545 )
Since the 1960s, China has carried out six geodetic campaigns (in 1966, 1975, 1992, 1998, 1999 and 2005 respectively) for the height determination of Qumolongma Feng (Mt. Everest, QF in short) independently or in cooperation with foreign countries. Geodetic field work, data processing and scientific researches have been executed in the campaigns. The height determination results of QF obtained by China in the past 40 years have been briefly introduced and reviewed in the paper. Emphases are given to the technical progress in the 2005 campaign. For example, GPS technique has been widely and precisely used, and the thickness of the snow-ice cover on the QF summit is measured by ground penetrating radar integrated with GPS. All these technical measurements really raise the accuracy and reliability for the height determination of QF and the thickness of the snow-ice layer on the QF summit. The orthometric height (height above sea level) of the snow surface of the QF summit is 8 847.93 m. T...更多he orthometric height of rock surface of the QF summit is determined as 8 844.43 m,and the thickness of the snow-ice layer on the QF summit is 3.50 m.

Abstract ( 612 )
Scale-free issues of complex systems, including scale-free property of complex systems, analysis of power law distribution, the evolving mechanisms for scale-free property, scale-free phenomena of complex systems, and macro-control of scale-free property, are systemically researched in this paper. We emphasize that: ①Generally speaking, scale-free property is one of the intrinsic characteristics of complex systems, which describes their overall extremely uneven asymmetry distributions; ②Various complex systems with power-law distribution are highly heterogeneous only when their scaling exponents are between 2 and 3, which is proved theoretically by the authors; ③The macro-control principle for the scale-free property of the very important complex systems involved in the national economy and the people's livelihood is proposed.

Abstract ( 517 )
Human kinase domain receptor promoter (KDRp) has been cloned into the pcDNA3 -CDglyTK to construct the pcDNA3-KDRp-CDglyTK specialized expression vector. The pcDNA3-KDRp-CDglyTK plasmid was transfected into ECV304, L9981 and NL9980 cell, and established ECV304-cdtk, L9981-cdtk and NL9980-cdtk cell lines. The above cell lines were treated with 5-FC and/or GCV respectively. The result suggest that cdtk gene was specialized expressed in ECV304-cdtk, L9981-cdtk and NL9980-cdtk KDR-positive cells with KDR gene high expression, and prodrug/KDRp-CDglyTK system was effective in killing effect in KDR-positive cells. The killing effect in combined drug (5-FC and GCV) was remarkable stronger than that in GCV alone and 5-FC alone in the same pre-drug dose, and a significantly synergetic cytotoxic effect was found in vivo and in vitro.

Abstract ( 707 )
In this paper, we report our researches into the changes of nm23, S100A4 and p53 between the primary tumor and the metastases of gastric cancer by immunohistochemistry and polymerase chain reaction single-strand conformation polymorphisms (PCR-SSCP), as well as the role of heterogeneity in the process of metastasis of gastric cancer. The results revealed lower expression of nm23 and higher expression of S100A4 in the metastases than in the primary tumor. No difference of p53 between the two groups was found. Down-expression of nm23 and overexpression of S100A4 and p53 were related to distant metastasis of gastric cancer. The results suggested that nm23 and S100A4 play a critical role in the process of metastasis and that p53 is a late event of gastric cancer.

Abstract ( 515 )
To explore the role of neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) on the lead neurotoxicity, the impact of lead on the expression of NCAM was studied with Wistar rats in vitro and in vivo respectively. Results showed that in vivo PbCl2 dose-responsively inhibited the expression of NCAM at 14 d, but till the 30 d, the pups' NCAM expression exceeded the control. The same trend of NCAM expression was observed in vitro. This study indicated that low-level lead significantly inhibited the expression of NCAM in Wistar rats' hippocampus especially at early development time and delayed it's expression phases.

Abstract ( 483 )
Contamination of urban topsoils with metals is an issue all urban regions have to deal with. In recent years, magnetic measurements have been increasingly used as a proxy for the metal content in soils influenced by industrial or traffic emissions. In order to validate this method, a more detailed study of links between magnetic parameters characterizing the magnetic minerals and concentrations of metals is necessary. In this study, the connections between 24 metals (Pb, Cu, Zn, Co, Cd, Sb, As, Fe, Ni, Cr, Ag, Sc, Ba, Hg, Be, Bi, Mn, Al, Ti, Se, Ga, Li, V, and Mo) and five magnetic parameters (χ, χfd, SOFT, SIRM, and χARM) in Xuzhou urban topsoil have been explored and the magnetic diagnosis models for some of the metals have also been established. Our results show some metal contents could be initially estimated quantitatively by means of magnetic measurements for the Xuzhou urban topsoil.

Abstract ( 536 )
The Three Gorges Project (TGP) will bring about tremendous benefits for the mid-Yangtze River after its commencement in 2008. We should, on the other hand, also pay close attention to problems it might incidentally cause. For instance, the trapping of sediment by the TGP reservoir will cause the river downstream of the dam lose its equilibrium in sediment fluxes for a long time and bring about scours and river regime changes in the Jingjiang reach. If too much erosion take place in the Lower part of the Jingjiang reach, the flood conditions for the area around the Chenglingji reach and the Dongting Lake would be seriously affected. It seems to the author that the TGP could not have the ability to protect the said area if the main task in protecting Jingjiang reach should be ensured, since the capacity of the TGP reservoir is comparatively small. The problems for the Chenglingji and Dongting Lake should, however, be carefully studied and well settled with more measures.

Full text: HTMLnew PDF  (376 KB)  ( 310 )
Abstract ( 518 )
A new method that calculates the ratio of single coal in mixed coal is given. When several single coal peaks are partly overlapped, separating overlapped curve is established. The method with the characteristics of simple operation and single result is based on the integral of normal distribution equation of every single coal. It can be used in many complex problems. As calibration of vitrinite content is introduced, the exact ratio of single coal in mixed coal can be figured out. The process of establishing curve distribution equation is a good example of obtaining several parameters according to one group of test date.

Full text: HTMLnew PDF  (376 KB)  ( 329 )
Abstract ( 506 )
This paper considers a multi-depot location-routing problem with hard time windows for the customers, and capacity restrictions for the vehicles and the depots. And we propose a two-phase heuristic algorithm to solve this complex model. In the first phase, we allocate customer nodes to some appropriate depots, considering the time windows; and in the second phase, we optimize the routing problem for every depot and its related customers by improved C-W algorithm. At last, we give an analysis about this algorithm through an example.
