Building successful recommender systems requires uncovering the underlying dimensions that describe the properties of items as well as users' preferences toward them. In domains like clothing recommendation , explaining users' preferences requires mod-eling the visual appearance of the items in question. This makes recommendation especially challenging ,(More)
Amphotericin B (AmB) is a popular drug frequently applied in the treatment of systemic fungal infections. In the presence of ruthenium (II) as the maker ion, the behavior of AmB to form ion channels in sterol-free and cholesterol- or ergosterol-containing supported phosphatidylcholine bilayer model membranes were studied by cyclic votammetry, AC impedance(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) presents a high risk breast cancer that lacks the benefit from hormone treatment, chemotherapy is the main strategy even though it exists in poor prognosis. Use of adjuvant radiation therapy, which significantly decreases breast cancer mortality, has not been well described among poor TNBC women.(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the periodontitis-associated changes in the number, proliferation and differentiation potential of human periodontal ligament stem cells (PDLSCs). Cultures of human periodontal ligament cells (PDLCs) were established from healthy donors and donors with periodontitis. The numbers of stem cell were characterized(More)
The tyrosine phosphatase SHP2, encoded by PTPN11, is required for the survival, proliferation and differentiation of various cell types. Germline activating mutations in PTPN11 cause Noonan syndrome, whereas somatic PTPN11 mutations cause childhood myeloproliferative disease and contribute to some solid tumours. Recently, heterozygous inactivating mutations(More)
A linear water-insoluble (1-->3)-beta-D-glucan, coded as GL-IV-I, was isolated from the fruit body of Ganoderma lucidum by extracting with NaOH solution. Its derivatives were prepared by using sulfation, carboxymethylation, hydroxyethylation, hydroxypropylation, and methylation, respectively, and these were labeled as S-GL, CM-GL, HE-GL, HP-GL and M-GL.(More)
A highly catalytic activity microperoxidase-11 (MP-11) biosensor for H(2)O(2) was developed to immobilizing the heme peptide in didodecyldimethylammonium bromide (DDAB) lipid membrane. The enzyme electrode thus obtained responded to H(2)O(2) without electron mediator or promoter, at a potential of +0.10 V versus Agmid R:AgCl. A linear calibration curve is(More)
Raw image data offer rich source of information for matching and classification. For simplicity of pattern recognition system design, a sequential approach consisting of sensing, feature extraction and matching is conventionally adopted where each stage transforms a particular component of information relatively independently. The interaction between these(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection is a major etiological factor for nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Several EBV-encoded BART miRNAs have been associated with viral latency, immune escape, cell survival, cell proliferation and apoptosis. Here, we report that EBV-miR-BART7-3p, an EBV-encoded BART miRNA highly expressed in NPC, was correlated with cell-cycle(More)
This paper proposes a new method of feature extraction and recognition, namely, the fuzzy inverse Fisher discriminant analysis (FIFDA) based on the inverse Fisher discriminant criterion and fuzzy set theory. In the proposed method, a membership degree matrix is calculated using FKNN, then the membership degree is incorporated into the definition of the(More)
