Chilling tolerance was increased in seed germination and root growth of wheat seedlings grown in media containing 20 µg/mL cerebroside C (CC), isolated from the endophytic Phyllosticta sp. TG78. Seeds treated with 20 µg/mL CC at 4 °C expressed the higher germination rate (77.78%), potential (23.46%), index (3.44) and the shorter germination time (6.19 d);(More)
This paper investigates the performance of parallel relay-assisted transmission for free-space optical (FSO) communication systems over strong turbulence channel. The analysis is carried out for systems employing decode-and-forward (DF) relays and for strong turbulence channel which can be modeled by the Gamma-Gamma distribution. Take atmospheric(More)
Reliability analysis is an important issue in wireless sensor networks (WSNs). This paper aims to study the reliability of a data flow in event-driven wireless sensor networks with multiple sending transmission approach without acknowledgments. Initially, an event-driven wireless sensor network model is described in terms of limited node battery energy and(More)
Normal mammalian terminal erythroid differentiation is a precisely regulated process during which the progenitor cells execute particular programs to form a mature erythrocytic phenotype. In the present study, it was found that RbAp48, a histone-binding protein associated with retino-blastoma protein, was upregulated during terminal erythroid maturation in(More)
This paper investigates BER performance of free-space optical (FSO) communication over strong turbulence channel together with pointing errors effects. Take atmospheric attenuation, atmospheric turbulence and pointing errors into account, a statistical model for the optical intensity fluctuation at the receiver is described. For given weather and(More)
In this paper, a modified MUSIC algorithm, namely, VA-MUSIC is presented for the direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation of noncircular signal sources. By using the conjugate counterpart of the array output, a virtual array is formed to extend the equivalent array aperture, so that it can handle more sources than sensors. Then, based on dividing the virtual(More)
Since indoor visible light communication (VLC) systems can offer several potential advantages over their radio frequency and infrared counterparts, there has been a growing interest in VLC systems. Influenced by the complicated optical propagation environment, multipath effect existed which may result in intersymbol interference (ISI). Therefore, the bit(More)
In this paper, a dynamic model is proposed to quantify the relationship between fluid flow and Cl(-)-selective membrane current in vascular endothelial cells (VECs). It is assumed that the external shear stress would first induce channel deformation in VECs. This deformation could activate the Cl(-) channels on the membrane, thus allowing Cl(-) transport(More)
