A full adder is one of the most commonly used digit circuit components, many improvements have been made to refine the architecture of a full adder. In this paper, 4 different types of 10 transistor (10-T) based full adder are proposed using a new design methodology called GDI (gate-diffusion input). In the meantime, a complete verification and comparison(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess substance use before and after bariatric weight loss surgery (WLS). There is a paucity of research investigating the occurrence of substance use following bariatric WLS. It was hypothesized that patients who underwent WLS would exhibit an increase in substance use (drug use, alcohol use, and cigarette smoking) following surgery to(More)
Nuclear respiratory factor-1 (NRF-1) is a transcription factor that functions in neurite outgrowth; however, the genes downstream from NRF-1 that mediate this function remain largely unknown. This study employs a genome-wide analysis approach to identify NRF-1-targeted genes in human neuroblastoma IMR-32 cells. A total of 916 human genes containing the(More)
Notch signaling pathway defines an evolutionarily conserved mechanism in cell-fate determination in a broad spectrum of developmental processes through local cell interactions. mind bomb (mib) encodes an E3 ubiquitin ligase that is involved in Notch activation through Delta ubiquitylation and internalization. To further dissect the function of Mib, two(More)
RATIONALE Hypoxia is a significant perturbation that exacerbates endothelial barrier dysfunction, contributing to the disruption of vascular homeostasis and the development of various diseases such as atherosclerosis and metastasis of tumors. To date, it is not known what strategy might be used to counter the effect of hypoxia on endothelial permeability.(More)
Many organs in vertebrates are left-right asymmetrical located. For example, liver is at the right side and stomach is at the left side in human. Fibroblast growth factor (Fgf) signaling is important for left-right asymmetry. To investigate the roles of Fgfr2 signaling in zebrafish left-right asymmetry, we used splicing blocking morpholinos to specifically(More)
A prototype of a one-time-implantable spinal cord stimulation (SCS) system using wireless power and data-transmission techniques is presented in this paper. The power of the implant is induced by wireless coil coupling, and duplex amplitude-shift keying-load-shift keying wireless communication is used so that digital packets can be transmitted by the same(More)
