Characterized by ventricular dilatation, systolic dysfunction, and progressive heart failure, dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is the most common form of cardiomyopathy in patients. DCM is the most common diagnosis leading to heart transplantation and places a significant burden on healthcare worldwide. The advent of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)(More)
Wild relatives of crops are an important source of genetic diversity for agriculture, but their gene repertoire remains largely unexplored. We report the establishment and analysis of a pan-genome of Glycine soja, the wild relative of cultivated soybean Glycine max, by sequencing and de novo assembly of seven phylogenetically and geographically(More)
The bamboo-shaped carbon nanotubes were synthesized on a large scale through an ethanol thermal reduction process, in which ethanol was used as the carbon source and magnesium was used as the reductant. The toxic or corrosive reagents have been completely avoided. Furthermore, Y-junction carbon nanotubes obtained from our experiment can be used as the(More)
AMULET1 demonstrated the feasibility of building an asynchronous implementation of the ARM microprocessor. Although functional, this first asynchronous ARM microprocessor did not fully exploit the potential of the asynchronous design style to deliver improved performance and power consumption. This paper describes AMULET2e, an embedded system chip(More)
Different from traditional power allocation schemes in distributed antenna systems, a novel power allocation algorithm aiming at maximizing energy efficiency (EE) with low-complexity is presented in this letter. The optimization process is divided into two steps, the first step is to find the optimal number of antennas corresponding to any fixed total(More)
We describe a method using atomic force microscopy (AFM) to quantify the mechanobiological properties of pluripotent, stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes, including contraction force, rate, duration, and cellular elasticity. We measured beats from cardiomyocytes derived from induced pluripotent stem cells of healthy subjects and those with dilated(More)
Attribute-based encryption (ABE) systems allow encrypting to uncertain receivers by means of an access policy specifying the attributes that the intended receivers should possess. ABE promises to deliver fine-grained access control of encrypted data. However, when data are encrypted using an ABE scheme, key management is difficult if there is a large number(More)
In order to determine the fluoride content of various products of black tea and to make safety evaluations, 37 commodities in the different manufactured forms of tea were assessed by means of ion-selective electrode and spectrophotometric methods. The results showed wide differences in fluoride levels. The fluoride content was found 0.95-1.41 mg/L in black(More)
The effects of microwave pretreatment (MW) on co-digestion of food waste (FW) and sewage sludge (SS) have never been investigated. In this study, a series of mesophilic biochemical methane potential (BMP) tests were conducted to determine the optimized ratio of FW and SS based on MW, and the evolution of bacterial and archaeal community was investigated(More)
