Glutamate receptors play major roles in excitatory transmission in the vertebrate brain. Among ionotropic glutamate receptors (AMPA, kainate, NMDA), AMPA receptors mediate fast synaptic transmission and require TARP auxiliary subunits. NMDA receptors and kainate receptors play roles in synaptic transmission, but it remains uncertain whether these ionotropic(More)
Ionotropic glutamate receptors principally mediate fast excitatory transmission in the brain. Among the three classes of ionotropic glutamate receptors, kainate receptors (KARs) have a unique brain distribution, which has been historically defined by 3H-radiolabeled kainate binding. Compared with recombinant KARs expressed in heterologous cells, synaptic(More)
In this paper, detailed cross-correlation properties for Chu sequences are investigated. All possible values of the cross-correlation function of Chu sequences are derived for any given sequence length and lag, and the maximum magnitude distribution function &#x03C1;<sub>N</sub>(x), which is defined as the number of all Chu sequence pairs with length-N(More)
In this paper, the uplink (UL) signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) distributions in a two-tier heterogeneous cellular network (HCN) are analyzed by considering the power control effect and approximating the UL interferer locations as a non-uniform Poisson point process (PPP). Approximated closed-form SIR distributions are provided according to the tier,(More)
Neuronal AMPA receptors autoinactivate at high concentrations of glutamate, i.e., the current declines at glutamate concentrations above 10-100 microM. The mechanisms underlying this phenomenon are unclear. Stargazin-like TARPs are AMPA receptor auxiliary subunits that modulate receptor trafficking and channel properties. Here, we found that neuronal AMPA(More)
In this paper, we propose an efficient puncturing method for LDPC codes. The proposed algorithm provides the order of variable nodes for puncturing based on the proposed cost function. The proposed cost function tries to maximize the minimum reliability among those provided from all check nodes. Also, it tries to allocate survived check nodes evenly to all(More)
In this paper, the best-M feedback, where each user reports the channel quality indicators (CQIs) on its M best resource blocks (RBs), for orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) systems is analyzed and optimized. First, the closed-form expression of the average sum-rate is derived as a function of M and the number of bits for a signal to(More)
Dietary antigens are normally rendered nonimmunogenic through a poorly understood "oral tolerance" mechanism that involves immunosuppressive regulatory T (Treg) cells, especially Treg cells induced from conventional T cells in the periphery (pTreg cells). Although orally introducing nominal protein antigens is known to induce such pTreg cells, whether a(More)
In this paper, a novel preamble structure, including a synchronization field (S-field) and a cell searching field (C-field), is proposed. An efficient algorithm for downlink synchronization and cell searching using the preamble is also proposed. The synchronization process includes initial symbol timing estimation using continuously or at least periodically(More)
A search algorithm for stopping sets in a Tanner graph is proposed for designing good low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes. By applying the belief-propagation algorithm with messages containing the information of originated variable nodes and their connected edges, the stopping sets can be detected. Furthermore, a code design method using the algorithm is(More)
