Energy consumption is the core issue in wireless sensor networks (WSN). To generate a node energy model that can accurately reveal the energy consumption of sensor nodes is an extremely important part of protocol development, system design and performance evaluation in WSNs. In this paper, by studying component energy consumption in different node states(More)
PURPOSE Variants in complement factor H (CFH), the hypothetical LOC387715, and the high-temperature requirement A-1 (HTRA1) genes have been reported to be associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The purpose of this study was to investigate the association of reported common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in CFH, LOC387715, and HTRA1(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether the previously reported noncoding variant of the complement factor H (CFH) gene and two coding variants of the complement component 3 (C3) gene are associated with exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in Chinese patients. METHODS One hundred fifty Chinese patients with exudative AMD and 161 control individuals(More)
The diverse transcriptional mechanisms governing cellular differentiation and development of mammalian tissue remains poorly understood. Here we report that TAF7L, a paralogue of TFIID subunit TAF7, is enriched in adipocytes and white fat tissue (WAT) in mouse. Depletion of TAF7L reduced adipocyte-specific gene expression, compromised adipocyte(More)
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is one of the key technologies of 21st century, while it is a very active and challenging research area. It seems that in the next coming year, thanks to 6LoWPAN, these wireless micro-sensors will be embedded in everywhere, because 6LoWPAN enables P2P connection between wireless nodes over IPv6. Nowadays different(More)
The traditional urban public transport system generally cannot provide an effective access service for people with disabilities, especially for disabled, wheelchair and blind (DWB) passengers. In this paper, based on advanced information & communication technologies (ICT) and green technologies (GT) concepts, a dedicated public urban transportation service(More)
More than 60,000 people die suddenly each year in France due to cardiac arrhythmias. The current techniques used to diagnose cardiac arrhythmias such as HOLTER, R.TEST and telemetry system are partially efficient owing to the limitation of the duration of monitoring. This paper presents a new system dedicated to real-time cardiac arrhythmias tele-assistance(More)
A multi-organ systems model of O(2) and CO(2) transport is developed to analyze the control of ventilation and blood flow during hypoxia. Among the aspects of the control processes that this model addressed are possible mechanisms responsible for the second phase of the ventilatory hypoxic response to mild hypoxia, i.e., hypoxic ventilatory decline (HVD).(More)
