Guided image filter (GIF) is a well-known local filter for its edge-preserving property and low computational complexity. Unfortunately, the GIF may suffer from halo artifacts, because the local linear model used in the GIF cannot represent the image well near some edges. In this paper, a gradient domain GIF is proposed by incorporating an explicit(More)
Detail enhancement is required by many problems in the fields of image processing and computational photography. Existing detail enhancement algorithms first decompose a source image into a base layer and a detail layer via an edge-preserving smoothing algorithm, and then amplify the detail layer to produce a detail-enhanced image. In this letter, we(More)
Insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF-1R) is important in cancer cell growth and survival and has been implicated in cancer pathophysiology and treatment. Here we report a novel function for IGF-1R in p53-dependent apoptotic response. We show that inhibition or loss of IGF-1R activity reduces translational synthesis of p53 and Mdm2 protein. Notably,(More)
Phylogeographic patterns of some extant plant and vertebrate species have been well studied; however, they are poorly understood in the majority of insects. The study documents analysis of mitochondrial (COI, CYTB and ND5) and nuclear (5.8S rDNA, ITS2 and 28S rDNA) data from 419 individuals of Adelphocoris suturalis, which is one of the main cotton pests(More)
Exposure fusion is a technique to fuse several differently exposed low dynamic range (LDR) images to an LDR image. The output image has more information than each of the input images, but it could suffer from loss of fine details. In this paper, we propose a detail-enhanced exposure fusion algorithm by introducing an L<sub>0</sub> norm based optimization in(More)
LJAMP1 is a small antimicrobial protein purified previously from the seeds of motherwort, and it is expressed preferentially in seeds. A 794-bp upstream sequence of the ATG start codon was isolated using a genome walking method and cloned into the upstream of the β-glucuronidase (GUS) reporter gene to determine the GUS tissue-specific expression pattern.(More)
Every year many vehicle departure accidents happen due to the driver's carelessness. Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) is a kind of system which can relieve the stress of the drivers and reduce traffic accidents. But most traffic scenes have greater dynamic range than the digital camera at present. It makes the accuracy of the system would be affected by(More)
Acanthaspis cincticrus (Stål) is an assassin bug with a specialized camouflaging behavior to ambush ants in the nymphal stages. In this study, we comprehensively sequenced all the life stages of A. cincticrus, including the eggs, five nymph instars, female and male adults using Illumina HiSeq technology. We obtained 176 million clean sequence reads. The(More)
