UNLABELLED Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) is trophic for cardiac tissue and is a major causative agent for viral myocarditis, where local viral replication in the heart may lead to heart failure or even death. Recent studies show that inserting microRNA target sequences into the genomes of certain viruses can eradicate these viruses within local host tissues that(More)
Aim at the influence of the weather factor upon the road vehicle, this paper puts forward a kind of a weather identifying system vehicle video image. The system needs to initialize an original background image which is the brightest on the average in the first period of time. The background image is renewed not only when the bright degree of next frame(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify a homogeneous entity for antinuclear antibody (ANA)-positive patients suffering from juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). METHODS All of the clinical features were recorded retrospectively. ANA positivity was defined as more than twice positive results at a titer of > 1:100. The correlation between ANA positivity and clinical(More)
Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) is known to induce both autophagy and apoptosis, but whether a relationship exists between these processes upon infection, and whether and how they influence the viral life cycle are currently unknown. We observed here that while autophagosome formation increased in CVB3-infected HeLa cells at the early stage of infection, it(More)
In this paper, we develop an efficient technique for fully automatic recovery of accurate 3D face shape from videos captured by a low cost camera. The method is designed to work with a short video containing a face rotating from frontal view to profile view. The whole approach consists of three components. First, automatic initialization is performed in the(More)
In a previous study, the number of autophagosomes increased after coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) infection. However, the exact mechanism by which CVB3 regulates the number of autophagosomes is unclear. Earlier studies have found that infection with CVB3 activates extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK). ERK is essential for CVB3 replication and can increase(More)
Driver's fatigue detection has been realized based on driver's mouth geometrical features. It can give some information when driver is fatigue. For better speed and reliability, a new method which was based on combined Adaboost algorithm and particle filter was applied. Then the mouth verification was applied according to prior knowledge. Driver's state was(More)
Realistic audio-visual mapping remains a very challenging problem. Having short time delay between inputs and outputs is also of great importance. In this paper, we present a new dynamic audio-visual mapping approach based on the Fused Hidden Markov Model Inversion method. In our work, the Fused HMM is used to model the loose synchronization nature of the(More)
Road intersections are important components of urban road system. It is the traffic flow characteristics representing the current traffic situation that provide a basis for the planning, designing and management of intersections. In this paper, we constructed an automatic processing framework on traffic flow characteristics analysis and understanding the(More)
