20 21 † These authors contributed equally to this work; therefore listed in alphabetical order. cells of the innate immune system; however, little is known about whether or how 28 other immune cells recognize tumor cells to assist NK cells. Here, we show that the 29 innate immune receptor Dectin-1 expressed on dendritic cells and macrophages is 30 critical(More)
The eradication of tumor cells requires communication to and signaling by cells of the immune system. Natural killer (NK) cells are essential tumor-killing effector cells of the innate immune system; however, little is known about whether or how other immune cells recognize tumor cells to assist NK cells. Here, we show that the innate immune receptor(More)
Antiphospholipid syndrome is associated with an increased risk of thrombosis and pregnancy loss. Annexin A5 (Anxa5) is a candidate autoantigen. It is not known, however, whether endogenous Anxa5 prevents foetal loss during normal pregnancy. We found significant reductions in litter size and foetal weight in Anxa5-null mice (Anxa5-KO). These changes occurred(More)
Sensor nodes are used extensively in order to gather real-time information in the social environment and natural environment. And the production volume of sensor nodes is much increased with the development of cyber-physical systems. Therefore, it becomes important how to reduce the power consumption of huge sensor nodes. In this work, normally-off(More)
Improving energy efficiency is critical for embedded systems in our rapidly evolving information society. It has been considered that heterogeneous multiprocessors can contribute to improving the energy efficiency of embedded systams. In such processors, executing tasks on lower performance core at lower frequency is better for energy efficiency though(More)
In real-time systems, power gating is widely adopted by processing cores but not working memory because of data loss. Meanwhile, new non-volatile memory technology, which is comparable to volatile memory, quickly emerges. Thus, in this paper, we propose data-aware power management for real-time systems with both volatile and non-volatile memories.(More)
A rapid and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatographic method was validated and described for determination of paroxetine in human saliva. Following liquid-liquid extraction of the drug and an internal standard (dibucaine), chromatographic separation was accomplished using a C18 analytical column with a mobile phase consisting of 0.05 mol/L sodium(More)
Cerebral angiography is performed for diagnosis and management of moyamoya disease and in childhood moyamoya disease is usually carried out under general anesthesia after tracheal intubation. Mechanical irritation to trachea resulting in pain,cough,and increase in secretion after termination of the general anesthesia sometimes occurs and it sometimes causes(More)
