The goal of the study is to investigate the preventive effect of taurine against arsenite-induced arrest of neuronal differentiation in N2a cells. Our results revealed that taurine reinstated the neurite outgrowth in arsenite-treated N2a cells. Meanwhile, arsenite-induced oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction as well as degradation of mitochondria(More)
BACKGROUND Aging is associated with physiological or pathological left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) cardiac changes. Secondhand smoke (SHS) exposure is associated with pathological LVH. The action mechanism in cardiac concentric hypertrophy from SHS exposure is understood, but the transition contributed from SHS exposure is not. To determine whether(More)
Tetrodotoxin (TTX) is a well-known marine toxin, which is widely distributed in marine animals and originates from marine bacteria. To compare seasonal characteristics of aerobic bacteria in the toxic gastropod Oliva hirasei, the muscle and digestive gland of O. hirasei were collected from New Taipei City, and plated on ORI agar for aerobic plate count.(More)
— This paper presents a novel technique to estimate true motion vectors (TMVs) during video encoding. The proposed method designs a system unit to collect motion vectors' (MVs') characteristic in the video encoder. MVs are then classified into reliable and unreliable MVs based on the collected early-stop distribution of each block. The reliable MVs are(More)
