Opinions are usually subjective expressions that describe people's sentiments, appraisals or feelings toward entities, events and their properties. The concept of opinion is very(More)
We provide a position-patch based face hallucination method using convex optimization. Recently, a novel position-patch based face hallucination method has been proposed to save computational time and achieve high-quality hallucinated results. This method has employed least square estimation to obtain the optimal weights for face hallucination. However, the(More)
Our goal is gene network inference in genetical genomics or systems genetics experiments. For species where sequence information is available, we first perform expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL) mapping by jointly utilizing cis-, cis-trans-, and trans-regulation. After using local structural models to identify regulator-target pairs for each eQTL,(More)
INTRODUCTION Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a T-cell-mediated systemic autoimmune disease, characterized by synovium inflammation and articular destruction. Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) could be effective in the treatment of several autoimmune diseases. However, there has been thus far no report on umbilical cord (UC)-MSCs in the treatment of RA.(More)
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) increases lipolysis and decreases lipogenesis through several pathways. DHA also enhances the expression of serum amyloid A protein (SAA), a possible lipid metabolism related gene. The question of whether DHA regulates the expression of SAA to affect lipid metabolism and increase lipolysis needs to be demonstrated in human(More)
