The applications of human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC)-derived cells in regenerative medicine has encountered a long-standing challenge: how can we efficiently obtain mature cell types from hPSCs? Attempts to address this problem are hindered by the complexity of controlling cell fate commitment and the lack of sufficient developmental knowledge for guiding(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Understanding the antecedents and consequences of customer satisfaction in the mobile communications market is important. This study explores the effects of service quality and justice on customer satisfaction, which, in turn, affects continuance intention of mobile services. Service quality, justice and customer satisfaction were(More)
In this paper, we study cellular neural networks with almost periodic variable coefficients and time-varying delays. By using the existence theorem of almost periodic solution for general functional differential equations, introducing many real parameters and applying the Lyapunov functional method and the technique of Young inequality, we obtain some(More)
We propose a novel hardware-accelerated voxelization algorithm for polygonal models. Compared with previous approaches, our algorithm has a major advantage that it guarantees the conservative correctness in voxelization: every voxel intersecting the input model is correctly recognized. This property is crucial for applications like collision detection,(More)
The intrachromosomal positions of the two grain dormancy quantitative trait loci (QTL) qSdn-1 (chromosome 1) and qSdn-5 (chromosome 5) were obtained from the segregation analysis of the advanced backcross populations derived from the cross between rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivars N22 (indica) and Nanjing35 (japonica). Marker-assisted selection (MAS) was(More)
Functionalized polypyrrole (PPy) composites were prepared by incorporation of a model redox mediator, anthraquinonedisulphonate (AQDS), as doping anion during the electropolymerization of pyrrole (Py) monomer on active carbon felt (ACF) electrode. Then, the resulting composite, ACF/PPy/AQDS as a novel immobilized redox mediator for catalyzing anaerobic(More)
Melatonin receptors are members of the G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) family. Three genes for melatonin receptors have been cloned. The MT1 (or Mel1a or MTNR1A) and MT2 (or Mel1b or MTNR1B) receptor subtypes are present in humans and other mammals, while an additional melatonin receptor subtype, Mel1c (or MTNR1C), has been identified in fish, amphibians(More)
