The protein 4.1 family consists of four members, 4.1R, 4.1N, 4.1B and 4.1G, each encoded by a distinct gene. All 4.1 mRNAs undergo extensive alternative splicing. Functionally, they usually serve as adapters that link actin-based cytoskeleton to plasma membrane proteins. It has been reported that 4.1 proteins are expressed in most animal cell types and(More)
Cough Recognition is a valuable classification problem in healthcare. Generally, feature representation contributes a lot to the overall classifying performance. In this paper, a novel feature extraction method, Gammatone Cepstral Coefficients (GTCC), is investigated for cough recognition. The accuracy of GTCC comparing with MFCC is evaluated on a designed(More)
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used for thousands of years, including treatment for cancer. Use of modern technology and the scientific method to evaluate the efficacy of TCM for cancer should enable its more widespread use. In the present study, the efficacy of the TCM tubeimu, extracted from the tuber of the plant Bolbostemma paniculatum, on(More)
Protein 4.1B is a member of protein 4.1 family, adaptor proteins at the interface of membranes and the cytoskeleton. It is expressed in most mammalian tissues and is known to be required in formation of nervous and cardiac systems; it is also a tumor suppressor with a role in metastasis. Here, we explore functions of 4.1B using primary mouse embryonic(More)
Large screens are populating a variety of settings motivating research on appropriate interaction techniques. While gesture is popularized by depth cameras we contribute with a comparison study showing how eye pointing is a valuable substitute to gesture pointing in dragging tasks. We compare eye pointing combined with gesture selection to gesture pointing(More)
UNLABELLED We retrospectively reviewed a total of 257 stage I to IIIa lung adenocarcinoma after resection, tested them for the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation, and analyzed the effect of perioperative treatment on survival. The results showed that in patients with an EGFR mutation, adjuvant EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitor monotherapy after(More)
Large interfaces are fixed to a certain use context, for example to a physical smart space. Mobile counterparts of public interfaces can allow user to continue interacting with the content also when leaving the space. However, wall applications make use of a large display surface and fitting the same user interface to the constraints of a mobile screen is(More)
It has been reported that detection of exhaled breath condensate (EBC) is available for studies of pulmonary diseases, especially lung disease. In order to detect lung cancer (LC) at early stage, a point-of-care testing system suitable for measurement of tumor markers in EBC is developed. The assay, based on gold nanoparticle sandwich immunoassay and(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the acute and sub-chronic toxicity of extract of Thunberg Fritillary Bulb. For the acute toxicity tests, graded doses of the extract were administered orally to mice. The animals were observed for toxic symptoms and mortality daily for 14days. In the sub-chronic toxicity study, rats were orally administered the(More)
