Cardiac Na(+) channels encoded by the SCN5A gene are essential for initiating heart beats and maintaining a regular heart rhythm. Mutations in these channels have recently been associated with atrial fibrillation, ventricular arrhythmias, conduction disorders, and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM).We investigated a young male patient with a mixed phenotype(More)
Database users may be frustrated by no answers returned when they pose a query on the database. In this paper, we study the problem of relaxing queries on RDF databases in order to acquire approximate answers. We address two problems in efficient query relaxation. First, to ensure the quality of answers, we compute the similarities between relaxed queries(More)
The human cardiac sodium channel Na(v)1.5 encoded by the SCN5A gene plays a critical role in cardiac excitability and the propagation of action potentials. Na(v)1.5 dysfunctions due to mutations cause cardiac diseases such as the LQT3 form of long QT syndrome, conduction disorders, and Brugada syndrome (BrS). They have also recently been associated with(More)
Incorporating the velocity slip effect of the gas flow at the solid boundary, the performance and dynamic response of a micro gas-bearing-rotor system are investigated in this paper. For the characteristic length scale of the micro gas bearing, the gas flow in the bearing resides in the slip regime rather than in the continuum regime. The modified Reynolds(More)
Effects of reflow time on the interfacial microstructure and shear strength of the SAC/FeNi-Cu connections were investigated. It was found that the amount of Cu 6 Sn 5 within the solder did not have a noticeable increase after a long time period of reflowing, indicating that the electro-deposited FeNi layer blocked the Cu atoms effectively into the solder(More)
This paper solves the problem of providing high-quality suggestions for user keyword queries over databases. With the assumption that the returned suggestions are independent, existing query suggestion methods over databases score candidate suggestions individually and return the top-k best of them. However, the top-k suggestions have high redundancy with(More)
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) originating from POP waste are playing an increasingly important role in the elevation of regional POP levels. In this study we realized the complete dechlorination of high concentration hexachlorobenzene (HCB) waste in the presence of polyethylene glycol and hydroxide, rather than using conventional high temperature(More)
BACKGROUND Capsular warning syndrome was first described in 1993, featured with repetitive episodes of motor and/or sensory dysfunction without cortical signs. Recently, it has been demonstrated that clinically typical capsular warning syndrome can be associated with pontine infarct and the term oepontine warning syndrome was coined. CASE PRESENTATION A(More)
PURPOSE Hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) is considered to be an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis. We aimed to determine the relation between Hcy and cerebral artery stenosis in a large Chinese population. METHODS We present data concerning 2,500 residents. Plasma was saved from 1,020 residents who were asymptomatic. Hcy concentration was measured by(More)
