—Band selection is a common approach to reduce the data dimensionality of hyperspectral imagery. It extracts several bands of importance in some sense by taking advantage of high spectral correlation. Driven by detection or classification accuracy, one would expect that, using a subset of original bands, the accuracy is unchanged or tolerably degraded,(More)
Studies have previously documented that microRNAs (miRNAs), with their key roles in regulating both synaptic plasticity and brain development, are candidate genetic contributors to the etiopathology of bipolar disorder (BD). Moreover, miRNA identified as targets for the actions of chronic lithium and VPA are known to play diverse and intriguing roles in(More)
Anti-angiogenesis represents a promising therapeutic strategy for the treatment of various malignancies. Isthmin (ISM) is a gene highly expressed in the isthmus of the midbrain-hindbrain organizer in Xenopus with no known functions. It encodes a secreted 60 kD protein containing a thrombospondin type 1 repeat domain in the central region and an(More)
Enteroviruses (EVs) are important human pathogens associated with various clinical syndromes. This study represents an overview of non-polio enteroviruses (NPEVs) isolated from acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) surveillance in Shandong Province, China from 1988 to 2013. Altogether 792 and 170 NPEV isolates were isolated from stool specimens of 9263 AFP cases(More)
Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) infections are endemic in cattle populations worldwide and cause major economic losses. Thus, an effective vaccine is needed against the transmission of BVDV. The glycoprotein Erns is one of the envelope proteins of this virus and shows BVDV-related immunogenicity. Here, we report the use of Panax ginseng as an alternative(More)
Identification of the factors critical to the tumor-initiating cell (TIC) state may open new avenues in cancer therapy. Here we show that the metabolic enzyme glycine decarboxylase (GLDC) is critical for TICs in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). TICs from primary NSCLC tumors express high levels of the oncogenic stem cell factor LIN28B and GLDC, which are(More)
Normalization of cDNA and oligonucleotide microarray data has become a standard procedure to offset non-biological differences between two samples for accurate identification of differentially expressed genes. Although there are many normalization techniques available, their ability to accurately remove systematic variation has not been sufficiently(More)
—Principal component analysis (PCA) is widely used for spectral decorrelation in the JPEG2000 compression of hyper-spectral imagery. However, due to the data-dependent nature of principal components, the principal component transform matrix is stored in the JPEG2000 bitstream, constituting an overhead that is often negligible if the spatial size of the(More)
—Band selection is often applied to reduce the di-mensionality of hyperspectral imagery. When the desired object information is known, it can be achieved by finding the bands that contain the most object information. It is expected that these bands can provide an overall satisfactory detection and classification performance. In this letter, we propose a new(More)
