Insulin stimulates protein synthesis and cell growth by activation of the protein kinases Akt (also known as protein kinase B, PKB) and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR). It was reported that Akt activates mTOR by phosphorylation and inhibition of tuberous sclerosis complex 2 (TSC2). However, in recent studies the physiological requirement of Akt(More)
(2013) Global, 30-m resolution continuous fields of tree cover: Landsat-based rescaling of MODIS vegetation continuous fields with lidar-based estimates of error, Taylor & Francis makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of all the information (the " Content ") contained in the publications on our platform. Taylor & Francis, our agents, and our licensors(More)
In this paper, we report some important results of design and evaluation of a wheelchair-based robotic arm system, named as KARES II (KAIST Rehabilitation Engineering Service System II), which is newly developed for the disabled. KARES II is designed in consideration of surveyed necessary tasks for the target users (that is, people with spinal cord injury).(More)

The loudness dependence of auditory evoked potentials (LDAEP) has been proposed as a reliable indicator of central serotonin system activity in animal and some human studies. Since low central serotonergic activity is related to suicidality, it is possible that the LDAEP can be used to predict suicidality. The aim of the present study was to determine(More)
Amino acids stimulate cell growth and suppress autophagy through activation of mTORC1. The activation of mTORC1 by amino acids is mediated by Rag guanosine triphosphatase (GTPase) heterodimers on the lysosome. The molecular mechanism by which amino acids regulate the Rag GTPase heterodimers remains to be elucidated. Here, we identify SH3 domain-binding(More)
Recently, service area has been emerging field of robotic applications. Even though assistant robots play an important role for the disabled and the elderly , they still &er from operating the robots using conventional interface devices such as joysticks or keyboards. I n this paper, we suggest a human-robot interface using a new eye gaze estimation system.(More)
