OBJECTIVE To identify the molecular and physiologic abnormality in familial myotonia with cold sensitivity, hypertrophy, and no weakness. BACKGROUND Sodium channel mutations were previously identified as the cause of several allelic disorders with varying combinations of myotonia and periodic paralysis. A three-generation family with dominant myotonia(More)
The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment has measured a nonzero value for the neutrino mixing angle θ(13) with a significance of 5.2 standard deviations. Antineutrinos from six 2.9 GWth reactors were detected in six antineutrino detectors deployed in two near (flux-weighted baseline 470 m and 576 m) and one far (1648 m) underground experimental halls. With(More)
Renal tubular reabsorption is important for extracellular fluid homeostasis and much of this occurs via the receptor-mediated endocytic pathway. This pathway is disrupted in Dent's disease, an X-linked renal tubular disorder that is characterized by low-molecular-weight proteinuria, hypercalciuria, nephrolithiasis, and renal failure. Dent's disease is due(More)

Transmission planning in a restructured electricity market becomes increasingly complicated. To bridge the gap between economic and engineering considerations, this survey paper suggests a framework to clarify the interactions among various economic and engineering issues by reviewing recent theoretical and practical progress in transmission investment and(More)
Laser scanning is playing an important role in an acquisition of the 3D spatial objects in urban because of real-time and high efficiency than traditional methods. The research presented in this paper is focused on segmentation of range image, especially captured by vehicle-borne laser scanning systems, which is the crucial technology for extracting objects(More)
The paper studies the impacts of learning behaviour of electrical-power suppliers on electricity-spot-market equilibrium under repeated linear supply-function bidding. In the markets, the supplier will conduct 'learning' to improve his strategic bidding in order to obtain greater profit. Therefore, it is significant to explore the impacts of such learning(More)
Purpose To observe whether 10.6μm laser moxibustion provides greater pain relief, improved joint stiffness and function in comparison with sham laser moxibustion. Methods 172 patients with knee osteoarthritis were randomly divided into real and sham laser moxibustion groups, with 10.6μm laser moxibustion and sham laser moxibus-tion treatment on ST-35(More)

A novel method for exploring the power system saddle node and Hopf bifurcation boundaries in the space of active and reactive powers has been proposed in the paper. This method is of iterative type with an eigenvalue sensitivity approach used to find a first bifurcation point and a parameter continuation technique used to locate the entire saddle node and(More)
