We classify the micro systems into two categories, the micro over-all systems and the micro characteristic ones, in the former theover-all sizes must be small and in the latter other and more intrinsic micro characteristics are emphasized. By comparing them, we found thatthe latter are more universal and that smaller over-all sizes do not lead to better intrinsic characteristics in most cases. We proposed that threemicro characteristics, the micro flowing, micro structure and micro comprehensive ones, should be considered for inner flowing under very lowReynolds number Re, which occurs often in fine-long conduits and in micro substance transport and micro heat transfer. We studied the conceptof reasonable flowing form for fluids that flow in micro systems or with very low velocities, and put forward the idea that the flowing pulsesequences, which are predictable and controllable and which are produced artificially, may become the key of dealing with the most intrinsicdifficulty in the field of microfluidic systems that micro flowing readily loses its normality. The existent methods were evaluated of influencing,that is, driving, controlling or disturbing, micro fluids according to the three micro characteristics mentioned above, and the differences betweenour digitalization of microfluids and Kim’s digital microfluidic circuits were pointed put. Then we advanced the pulse influencing method,which is based on pulse inertia force, and its devices. Experimental results showed that the micro characteristics are satisfactory in manyrespects: the flowing normality holds in a wide frequency range, the substance transport resolution reaches the fL order, the minimum flow rateis 3 pL/min, the flowing resistance is minimized especially for fine-long conduits, digital fluidic flowing is realized both in micro conduits andin micro jet streams, some digital microfluidic components with neither micro movable parts nor embedded micro electric circuits have beenmade, the method is suitable universally for ordinary liquid and solid powder driving, controlling and disturbing purposes, no special propertiesof liquids and solid powders are required, and, finally, higher reliability, productivity and automaticity have been reached.

Abstract ( 524 )
Let G be a simple graph. The vertices and edges of G are called the elements of G. For a coloring of the elements of G, if any two adjacent or incident elements of G have different colors, then it is called the proper total coloring of G. The equitable total coloring of a graph G is the proper total coloring such that the numbers of elements in any two color classes differ by at most one. The equitable total chromatic number is the smallest integer k such that G has an equitable total k-coloring. In this paper, we determine the equitable total chromatic number of Mycielski graphs of wheels and fans.

Abstract ( 554 )
Human Lactoperoxidase gene (hLPO) has been cloned into pBC1 to construct pBC1-hLPO specialized expression vector in mammary glands. Human LPO gene was assembled by two gene fragments, which are 3 kilo base pairs in length and 27 kilo base pairs long respectively. The shorter one was amplified by long-distance PCR and the other was cut down by restriction AgeI, both based on the donor of PAC RP5-1171I10 plasmid that contains hLPO gene. Here, We established the transgenic mouse model by microinjection into fertilized eggs, and then obtained 5 transgenic mice (4male, 1female) out of 28 descendants, identified by PCR and Southern blot. The integration rate is 17.86%, and lactoperoxidase expression levels were determined by SDS-PAGE gel electrophoresis and Western blot. The hLPO recombinant protein band is not obvious as the antibodies are not very specific.

Abstract ( 507 )
Fire is one of the main disasters in cities and towns. Study on the dynamics of city fires concerns the safety of human lives and properties. In this paper, the distribution of city fires is investigated, as well as the relation between fire frequency and weather. The frequency-size distribution and frequency-interval distribution of city fires are found to satisfy power-law relation, suggesting that there is connection between large and small fires and large fire frequency can be predicted with that of small fire. The correlation between fire frequency and weather parameters such as temperature and humidity is also studied. It is shown that fire frequency changes with these weather parameters, indicating that city fire frequency can be forecasted with weather parameters. The results are expected to reveal the global, complex characteristics of city fires, that is, the dynamics of city fire system. The study is also an approach to compose city fire danger rating method, just like the existent forest fire danger rating method

Abstract ( 487 )
By studying of molecular composition and the thermodynamics equilibrium, it is found that isomerization of hydrocarbon is benefit to offset the octane loss due to olefin saturation during FCC gasoline hydrotreating process. The affect of molecular sieve structure, surface modification and the type of metal on heptane isomerization was studied. The isomer selectivity is affected by two sides' factors. The first one is channel feature of molecular sieve, including pore diameter, pore structure, etc., and the second one is the matching of acid and metal active sites. Isomerization could be performed on the internal and external surface of molecular sieve simultaneously. The external surface is the main active position when reaction is carried out at low temperature. The internal surface becomes major only when the temperature increases. For medium pore molecular sieve, external surface may be the cracking position. When the metal center and acid center maintain suitable ratio and quite less distance, the intermediate products could be hydrogenated very quickly, and reduced the secondary cracking effectively. The developed catalyst depending on such concepts has been used in commercial unit and shows good performance.

There are about 35 HIV vaccine candidates around the world entered into early phase of clinical trial at the beginning of 2005. The selected antigens usually could induce both cellular and humoral immune response. Currently the HIV vaccine candidates include traditional vaccine (killed or attenuated vaccine), peptide, protein subunit, DNA vaccine and live vectorial vaccine. The immunization strategies were developed to increase the immunogenicity through antigen priming/boosting, and mucosa immunization. There are both modification, immune adjuvant co-inoculation, numerous opportunities and challenges in the field of Chinese HIV vaccine research, therefore, we should work closely and effectively to facilitate HIV vaccine development.
