We have identified a 55 kDa protein, named GRASP55 (Golgi reassembly stacking protein of 55 kDa), as a component of the Golgi stacking machinery. GRASP55 is homologous to GRASP65, an N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive membrane protein required for the stacking of Golgi cisternae in a cell-free system. GRASP65 exists in a complex with the vesicle docking protein(More)
The Rab6-binding kinesin, Rab6-KIFL, was identified in a two-hybrid screen for proteins that interact with Rab6, a small GTPase involved in membrane traffic through the Golgi apparatus. We find that Rab6-KIFL accumulates in mitotic cells where it localizes to the midzone of the spindle during anaphase, and to the cleavage furrow and midbody during(More)
We propose a watermarking scheme that can recover the original image from the watermarked one. The purpose is to verify the integrity and authenticity of DICOM images. We used 800x600x8 bits ultrasound (US) images in our experiment. SHA-256 of the whole image is embedded in the least significant bits of the RONI (Region of Non-Interest). If the image has(More)
This paper introduces current watermarking techniques available from the literatures. Requirements for medical watermarking will be discussed. We then propose a watermarking scheme that can recover the original image from the watermarked one. The purpose is to verify the integrity and authenticity of DICOM images. We used ultrasound (US) images in our(More)
We have investigated the use of telemonitoring in three long-term conditions: chronic heart failure (CHF), type 2 diabetes and essential hypertension. Participants were provided with a home telemonitoring unit for a 12-week period and entered physiological data each day. The data were sent automatically via the participant's telephone line to a server and(More)
In order to improve the diagnosis and subsequent care given to patients, health-care workers involved in the management of their care, as well as the treatment itself, are increasingly looking at the role that information and communication technologies (ICTs) can play in supporting the complex interactions between patient, doctor or nurse, consultant and(More)
We conducted a systematic review of large, well-conducted randomised trials designed to evaluate the effectiveness of telemonitoring on patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). Two people reviewed 125 articles independently and selected 13 articles for final review. These studies concerned 3480 patients. The follow-up period of the studies was 3-15(More)
We have implemented an 'evidence-based referral' for primary care patients in dermatology, cardiology and peripheral vascular disease. Telemedicine clinics bring together a district nurse, patient and vascular surgeon to discuss diagnosis, management and care. During a 30-month study, a total of 30 patients participated in telemedicine clinics. The mean(More)
