AIM To study the changes of human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) mRNA expression in human hepatocarcinoma cell lines (HepG2) and cholangiocarcinoma cell lines (QBC939) after HBx gene transfection and to illustrate the significance of transcriptional regulation of hTERT gene by HBx gene in the carcinogenesis. METHODS HepG2 and QBC939 cell lines(More)
The millimeter wave (mmWave) bands are likely to play a significant role in next generation cellular systems due to the possibility of very high throughput thanks to the availability of massive bandwidth and high-dimensional antennas. Especially in Non-Line-of-Sight conditions, significant variations in the received RF power can occur as a result of the(More)
802.11 WLANs do not provide any standardized solution for reliable data multicast. Multicast packets are delivered to multiple clients as a simple broadcast service without support for Automatic Repeat Request. Hence, a fixed low speed (robust) transmission mode is generally used to improve the reliability of multicast files. However, this results in the(More)
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been proved to play important roles in the tumorigenesis and development of human gastric cancer (GC). Our study aims to investigate the expression and clinical significance of miR-198 in GC patients. METHODS Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was performed to evaluate miR-198 levels in 106 pairs(More)
AIM To study the role of Twist gene in gastric cancer by gene silencing, including the potential of induction of apoptosis, cell cycle arrest, and proliferation inhibition in human malignant gastric SGC7901 cells. METHODS The expression level of Twist in gastric cancer samples was measured by immunohistochemistry. The effects of Twist gene silencing were(More)

We present an analysis of crosstalk in aligned and misaligned free-space optical interconnect (FSOI) systems. On the basis of a generalized diffraction integral formula, an analytical expression of irradiation distribution for FSOI systems and a convenient approach to calculate crosstalk noise signal ratios (CNSR) are proposed. Simulations are performed to(More)
— In this paper the throughput and packet error rate for an in-home 802.11n network is theoretically derived for two different types of 3x3 antenna configurations. Our first configuration assumes the use of three low directivity omni-directional elements. The second arrangement makes use of three orthogonally orientated directional elements. The spatial and(More)
