Collaborative filtering (CF) is a major technique in recommender systems to help users find their potentially desired items. Since the data sparsity problem is quite commonly encountered in real-world scenarios, Cross-Domain Collaborative Filtering (CDCF) hence is becoming an emerging research topic in recent years. However, due to the lack of sufficient(More)
Facial expression recognition basically requires fast processing speed as well as quality classification results. In this paper, an approach is presented for such a facial expression recognition using Locally Constrained Support Vector Clustering (LCSVC) and neural network (NN). During feature extracting, the independent component analysis can not only(More)
We described a newly developed approach, namely next-generation tag sequencing, to identify global gene transcripts and complexity regulated by heavy metals in Medicago truncatula. Two cDNA libraries were generated from M. truncatula seedlings: treated and non-treated with the toxic heavy metal mercury Hg(II). With the large number of read-mapped genes(More)
A Sc(OTf)3 -catalyzed cascade Prins-type cyclization reaction of o-alkynylanilines, bearing a hydroxy or amine functionality, with aldehydes affords 1,2-dihydroquinoline derivatives having an extra fused ring efficiently under mild reaction conditions. It is interesting to observe the reversed reactivity in the highly selective formation of(More)
Facial expression recognition is an active research area that finds a potential application in human emotion analysis. This work presents an efficient approach of facial expression features clustering based on Support Vector Clustering (SVC). Common approaches to facial expression features clustering are designed considering two main parts: (1) features(More)
The feasibility of porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS) as a carrier in skin flap prefabrication was examined in this study. Thirty-eight rats were randomly divided into five groups. The saphenous vascular bundle was used as the vascular carrier. In group 1 (n = 8), an arteriovenous fistula was made by anastomosis of distal saphenous artery and vein. A(More)
A highly efficient palladium-catalyzed oxidative cascade reaction of enallenes undergoing overall four C-C bond formations has been developed. The insertion cascade proceeds via carbonylation-carbocyclization-carbonylation-alkynylation involving sequential insertion of carbon monoxide, olefin, and carbon monoxide. Furthermore, different types of terminal(More)
A highly selective cascade reaction that allows the direct transformation of dienallenes to spirocyclobutenes (spiro[3.4]octenes) as single isomers has been developed. The reaction involves formation of overall four C-C bonds and proceeds via a palladium-catalyzed oxidative transformation with insertion of olefin, olefin, and carbon monoxide. Under slightly(More)
We investigated the effects of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) on atresia of the dominant follicle and changes in relevant apoptosis genes in granulosa cells of dominant follicles regulated by FSH in vivo. Four-week-old mice were administered FSH by intraperitoneal injection to induce follicular maturation. Granulosa cells of dominant follicles were(More)
Ring fusion: The Pd(0)-catalyzed reaction of 2-allyl-3-iodo-1-tosyl-1H-indoles and propargylic bromides affords dihydrocycloocta[b]indoles (see scheme; M.S. = molecular sieves, TFP = tris(2-furyl)phosphine, Ts = 4-toluenemethanesulfonyl), and proceeds by carbon-carbon coupling, [1,5]-hydrogen migration, and electrocyclization. The newly established method(More)
