The differentiation of adipose tissue-derived stromal cells (ADSCs) into adipocytes involves a highly orchestrated series of events that includes cell lineage commitment, mitotic clonal expansion, growth arrest, and terminal differentiation. However, the molecular mechanisms controlling adipogenesis are not yet completely understood. In this study, we(More)
This paper addresses the full-duplex relaying. Some expressions for outage and average capacity of a two-hop cooperative system with a full-duplex relay are derived under an independent but not identically distributed Rayleigh fading environment. Using these expressions, we provide the performance analysis without Monte Carlo simulations. The impact of(More)
The number of adipocytes is relevant to the extent of differentiation from pluripotent stem cells into pre-adipocytes, whereas the size of adipocytes relates to the extent of differentiation from pre-adipocytes into mature fat cells and the accumulation of triglyceride. Investigation of the molecular regulatory mechanism of adipocyte differentiation is not(More)
BACKGROUND Ventricular diastolic dysfunction in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) may affect atrial mechanics. This study aimed to explore right atrial (RA) and left atrial (LA) mechanics in repaired TOF patients and their relationship with ventricular diastolic function. METHODS Fifty-four patients (36 males), aged 17.8 ± 8.3 years, who(More)
A better understanding of the molecular mechanisms that regulate adipose tissue-derived stromal cell (ADSC) differentiation could provide new insight into some adipose-tissue-related disease. The differentiation of ADSCs into adipocytes is a complex physiological process that includes clonal expansion, growth arrest, and terminal differentiation. Here the(More)
One-dimensional and two-dimensional fast algorithms for realizing the block inverse jacket transform with size of N=2<sup>k</sup> and 3 <sup>k</sup> are proposed. The fast algorithms are based on sparse matrix factorization of the block inverse jacket matrix and recursive form of the Kronecker products of identity matrices and successively lower-order block(More)
