Human face recognition technology is a popular research topic in the biometrics identification area. Face detection is the most important pre-processing module of a face recognition system, and it plays an important role in applications such as video surveillance, human computer interface. The purpose of the face detection is to search and orient faces in(More)
High Peak to Average Power Ratio (PAPR) is a central obstacle to MC-CDMA system. Selected Mapping (SLM) is an effective method to reduce PAPR of MC-CDMA signal. In SLM the most direct infection of PAPR is what sequence is used as the phase sequence. A new Pseudo Random Interferometry code is proposed as the phase sequence for SLM to reduce PAPR of MC- CDMA(More)
Focal adhesions are clusters of specific receptor-ligand bonds that link an animal cell to an extracellular matrix. To understand the mechanical responses of focal adhesions, here we develop a stochastic-elasticity model of a periodic array of adhesion clusters between two dissimilar elastic media subjected to an inclined tensile stress, in which stochastic(More)
Recently, high-throughput sequencing has improved the understanding of the microbiological etiology of caries, but the characteristics of the microbial community structure in the human oral cavity with and without caries are not completely clear. To better understand these characteristics, Illumina MiSeq high-throughput sequencing was utilized to analyze 20(More)
Cells can adapt their mechanical properties through cytoskeleton remodelling in response to external stimuli when the cells adhere to the extracellular matrix (ECM). Many studies have investigated the effects of cell and ECM elasticity on cell adhesion. However, experiments determined that cells are viscoelastic and exhibiting stress relaxation, and the(More)
A apoptotic model was established based on the results of five hepatocellular carcinoma cell (HCC) lines irradiated with carbon ions to investigate the coupling interplay between apoptotic signaling and morphological and mechanical cellular remodeling. The expression levels of key apoptotic proteins and the changes in morphological characteristics and(More)
The adverse effect induced by carbon ion radiation (CIR) is still an unavoidable hazard to the treatment object. Thus, evaluation of its adverse effects on the body is a critical problem with respect to radiation therapy. We aimed to investigate the change between the configuration and mechanical properties of erythrocytes induced by radiation and found(More)
Soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R) is a glycoprotein derived from α chain of interleukin 2 receptors of mononuclear as well as T-cell membranes. The aims of this study were to detect the changes of serum soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R) levels following heavy-ion beam irradiation in the hamster model with cheek pouch carcinoma, as well as to(More)
