S100A4, a member of the S100 calcium-binding protein family secreted by tumor and stromal cells, supports tumorigenesis by stimulating angiogenesis. We demonstrated that S100A4 synergizes with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), via the RAGE receptor, in promoting endothelial cell migration by increasing KDR expression and MMP-9 activity.

The Generalized Predictive Controller (GPC) [1], [2] belongs to the general class of predictive controllers. The authors have proposed an alternative (although equivalent) formulation for the GPC in state space [7]. This formulation is based on a robust observer [5], and the poles selection is closely related to the controller robustness. An important(More)
