In this paper, we propose a group-sensitive multiple kernel learning (GS-MKL) method to accommodate the intra-class diversity and the inter-class correlation for object categorization. By introducing an intermediate representation “group” between images and object categories, GS-MKL attempts to find appropriate kernel combination for each(More)
In this paper, a group-sensitive multiple kernel learning (GS-MKL) method is proposed for object recognition to accommodate the intraclass diversity and the interclass correlation. By introducing the “group” between the object category and individual images as an intermediate representation, GS-MKL attempts to learn group-sensitive multikernel(More)
The genus Physalis includes a number of commercially important edible and ornamental species. Its high nutritional value and potential medicinal properties leads to the increased commercial interest in the products of this genus worldwide. However, lack of molecular markers prevents the detailed study of genetics and phylogeny in Physalis, which limits the(More)
Bacterial spot, incited by several Xanthomonas sp., is a serious disease in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.). Although genetics of resistance has been widely investigated, the interactions between the pathogen and tomato plants remain unclear. In this study, tanscriptomes of X. perforans race T3 infected tomato lines were compared to those of controls. An(More)
We investigated the activation and pathophysiological roles of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO) and kynurenine aminotransferase (KAT) in patients with ischemic stroke. Patients were recruited from the acute stroke unit of a general hospital within 24 hours post-stroke. The immune transmission turbidity method was used to determine the concentration of(More)
BACKGROUND The only human cathelicidin, LL-37, and the innate defense regulator peptide IDR-1, which have been proven to have antimicrobial activity, represent essential elements of immunity. Our previous study showed that the peptide LL-37 was protective in vitro to attenuate LTA-induced inflammatory effects. Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus(More)
OBJECT Erythropoietin (EPO) shows promise as a neuroprotective agent in animal models of traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, clinical trials of the efficacy of EPO treatment in patients with TBI yield conflicting results. The authors conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the effect of EPO in experimental animal models of TBI, the goal(More)
OBJECTIVES Human epididymis protein 4 (HE4) is a tumor marker in diagnosing ovarian cancer. Together with cancer antigen 125 (CA125) and the risk of ovarian malignancy algorithm (ROMA) score, it can improve sensitivity and specificity. There are no reports about the serum HE4 reference intervals (RIs) with electrochemiluminescence immunoassay (ECLIA). The(More)
