The regulator of G-protein signaling (RGS) pathway plays an important role in signaling transduction, cellular activities, and carcinogenesis. We hypothesized that genetic variations in RGS gene family may be associated with the response of late-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients to chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy. We selected 95 tagging(More)
Energy efficiency has proven to be an important factor dominating the working period of WSN surveillance systems. Intensive studies have been done to provide energy efficient power management mechanisms. In this paper, we present PAS, a Prediction-based Adaptive Sleeping mechanism for environment monitoring sensor networks to conserve energy. PAS focuses on(More)
BACKGROUND The VEGF-independent angiogenic signaling plays an important role in the development of colorectal cancer (CRC). However, its implication in the clinical outcome of CRC has not been reported. This study aimed to investigate the association between genetic variations in several major VEGF-independent signaling pathway genes and the overall(More)
This paper presents the design of a Kindred-based QoS-aware Live Media Streaming (KQStream) system in heterogeneous peer-to-peer environments. Motivated by the Multiple Description Coding technique, we propose a novel kindred-based approach to construct a peer-to-peer overlay topology. To achieve QoS-awareness during the streaming process, we propose a(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have demonstrated that ATP citrate lyase (ACLY) plays an important role in the development of many cancers. Our current study aims to assess the effects of functional single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in ACLY gene on recurrence and survival of colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. METHODS A total of 697 resected Chinese CRC(More)
Over-expression of de novo lipogenesis (DNL) pathway genes is associated with the prognosis of various types of cancers. However, effects of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in these genes on recurrence and death of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients after surgery are still unknown. A total of 492 primary HCC patients treated with surgery were(More)
In this demo, we propose a novel clock calibration approach called FLIGHT, which leverages the fact that the fluorescent light intensity changes with a stable period that equals half of the alternating current's. By tuning to the light emitted from indoor fluorescent lamps, FLIGHT can intelligently extract the light period information and achieve network(More)
