Multicell coordinated beamforming (MCBF), where multiple base stations (BSs) collaborate with each other in the beamforming design for mitigating the intercell interference (ICI), has been a subject drawing great attention recently. Most MCBF designs assume perfect channel state information (CSI) of mobile stations (MSs); however CSI errors are inevitable(More)
This study examined the effects of dietary (n-6) and (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) on bone ash content, morphometry, fatty acid composition, ex vivo PGE2 biosynthesis, tissue IGF-I concentration, and serum alkaline phosphatase (ALPase) activity in chicks. Newly hatched chicks were fed a semipurified diet containing(More)
In this paper, we explore how to use ranking SVM to train the feature weights for query-focused multi-document summarization. To apply a supervised learning method to sentence extraction in multi-document summarization, we need to derive the sentence labels for training corpus from the existing human labeling data in form of. However, this process is not(More)
This study examined the effects of dietary fat on the fatty acid composition of liver and bone, and on the concentration of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in liver and bone, as well as the relationship of these factors to bone metabolism. Day-old male broiler chicks were given a semipurified diet containing one of four lipid sources: soybean oil(More)
Although microRNAs (miRNAs) are increasingly linked to various physiologic processes, including hematopoiesis, their function in the myeloid development is poorly understood. We detected up-regulation of miR-29a and miR-142-3p during myeloid differentiation in leukemia cell lines and CD34(+) hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells. By gain-of-function and(More)
Emerging evidence indicates that microRNAs (miRNAs) play essential roles in regulating osteoblastogenesis and bone formation. However, the role of miRNA in osteoblast mechanotransduction remains to be defined. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether miRNAs regulate mechanical stimulation-triggered osteoblast differentiation and bone formation through(More)
Several studies have investigated the associations between X-ray repair cross-complementing group 3 (XRCC3) Thr241Met polymorphism and the susceptibility to lung cancer and bladder cancer, but results have been inconclusive. In order to derive a more precise estimation of the relationship, a meta-analysis was performed. A total of 22 case control studies,(More)
Ten male volunteers (age 29.2 ± 5.2 years, mean ± SD) were recruited to test the hypothesis that muscle fibre conduction velocity (MFCV) would decrease with power output during a 30-s Wingate test on a mechanically-braked cycle ergometer. Prior to the main test, the optimal pre-fixed load corresponding to the highest power output was selected following a(More)
Fluorescence imaging of nitric oxide (NO) in vitro and in vivo is essential to developing our understanding of the role of nitric oxide in biology and medicine. Current probes such as diaminofluorescein depend on reactions with oxidized NO products, but not with nitric oxide directly, and this limits their applicability. Here we report the formation of an(More)
