Cardiac progenitor cells are a potential source of cell therapy for heart failure. Although recent studies have shown that transplantation of cardiac stem/progenitor cells improves function of infarcted hearts, the precise mechanisms of the improvement in function remain poorly understood. The present study demonstrates that transplantation of sheets of(More)
This paper describes experimental results of an antenna selection system that is applied to a receiver side of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. We proposed an antenna selection system that each MIMO receive branch has different polarization and directional pattern antennas and selects one antenna combination by using radio frequency micro(More)
This paper analyzes relationship between video contents and subjective video quality for Internet broadcasting, and applies the results to the rate control methods. In this analysis, we classify video programs into some groups in which a large majority of users feel the same subjective video quality. We investigate the relationship by conducting an(More)
Infusion of bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells (BMMNC) has been reported to ameliorate cardiac dysfunction after acute myocardial infarction. In this study, we investigated whether infusion of BMMNC is also effective for non-ischemic heart failure model mice and the underlying mechanisms. Intravenous infusion of BMMNC showed transient cardioprotective(More)
A six-port receiver can restore the original modulated signal by calculating the detected envelopes and system parameters of the six-port circuit. The system parameters have been determined at each frequency in advance. The six-port receiver has an advantage in the point that the user can select the frequency arbitrarily, but there is a problem of nonlinear(More)
A highly substrate-general synthesis of all-carbon-substituted E- and Z-stereodefined olefins is performed. The method comprises two sets of parallel and stereocomplementary preparations of (E)- and (Z)-α,β-unsaturated esters involving two robust and distinctive reactions: 1) stereocomplementary enol tosylations using readily available TsCl/diamine/(LiCl)(More)
