BACKGROUND Elevated glucose-regulated protein 78 (GRP78) levels in tissues have been known to be related with poor prognosis in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. Though the variants in the 3' untranslated region (UTR) of GRP78 gene were not associated with HCC risk, we wonder whether these polymorphisms affect survival of HCC patients. (More)
SUMMARY A fully digital algorithm is described for acquiring and correcting the errors of the feedback DAC used in a multibit £ ¥ ¤ MASH ADC. The method operates in the background and is highly accurate. It is particularly useful for wideband ADCs, where mismatch error shaping becomes ineffective. Combined with an improved digital adaptive compensation(More)
