Hundreds of small RNAs of approximately 22 nucleotides, collectively named microRNAs (miRNAs), have been discovered recently in animals and plants. Although their functions are being unravelled, their mechanism of biogenesis remains poorly understood. miRNAs are transcribed as long primary transcripts (pri-miRNAs) whose maturation occurs through sequential(More)
Sqstm1/p62 functions in the non-canonical activation of nuclear factor (erythroid-derived 2)-like 2 (Nrf2). However, its physiological relevance is not certain. Here, we show that p62(-/-) mice exhibited an accelerated presentation of ageing phenotypes, and tissues from these mice created a pro-oxidative environment owing to compromised mitochondrial(More)
—Hybrid multiple input multiple output (MIMO) systems consist of an analog beamformer with large antenna arrays followed by a digital MIMO processor. Channel estimation for hybrid MIMO systems in millimeter wave (mm-wave) communications is challenging because of the large antenna array and the low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) before beamforming. In this(More)
—Due to the high cost and power consumption of radio frequency (RF) chains, millimeter wave (mm-wave) communication systems equipped with large antenna arrays typically employ less RF chains than the antenna elements. This leads to the use of a hybrid MIMO processor consisting of a RF beamformer and a baseband MIMO processor in mm-wave communications. In(More)
—We propose a new approach for multiple relay selection in large amplify-and-forward (AF) relay networks based on exploiting the sparsity of the relay gain vector. We start by applying our design approach to formulate the problem of optimizing the selected relay index and gain under the mean squared error criterion and a sparsity constraint. Building on(More)
