To cope with the formidable sampling rate required by Nyquist criterion, compressive sensing (CS) has been recently adopted for ultrawideband (UWB) channel estimation. In this paper, exploiting the statistical sparsity of real UWB signals in the basis formed by eigenvectors, we develop a new CS dictionary called eigendictionary, which enables the use of CS(More)
Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide and the fourth most lethal cancer in China. However, although genomic studies have identified some mutations associated with ESCC, we know little of the mutational processes responsible. To identify genome-wide mutational signatures, we performed either whole-genome(More)
ABI5 (ABA insensitive 5), a bZIP (Basic leucine zipper) transcription factor, has been shown to be a major mediator of plant ABA responses during seed germination. Although the molecular basis of ABI5-modulated processes has been well demonstrated in Arabidopsis thaliana, its identity and function in cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata L.) remain(More)
ABI1 (ABA Insensitive 1) is an important component of the core regulatory network in early ABA (Abscisic acid) signaling. Here, we investigated the functions of an ABI1 ortholog in Brassica oleracea (BolABI1). The expression of BolABI1 was dramatically induced by drought, and constitutive expression of BolABI1 confers ABA insensitivity upon the wild-type.(More)
Open Stomata 1 (OST1), an ABA-activated sucrose non-fermenting 1 (SNF1)-related protein kinase, is critical for plant drought responses. We investigated the functions of two splicing isoforms of the OST1 ortholog in Brassica oleracea (BolOST1). BolOST1 expression was found to be dramatically induced by drought and high-salt stress, and the ectopic(More)
Radioresistance is a major obstacle to the treatment of human nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Emerging evidence has demonstrated that miRNAs are involved in cancer therapy resistance. Our research group established the radioresistant NPC cell line CNE2R derived from the CNE2 cell line, and demonstrated that irradiation-induced miR-205 determined the(More)
Abscisic acid (ABA) plays an essential role in seed germination. In this study, we demonstrate that one SNF1-related protein kinase3-type protein kinase, SOS2-like protein kinase5 (PKS5), is involved in ABA signal transduction via the phosphorylation of an interacting protein, abscisic acid-insensitive5 (ABI5). We found that pks5-3 and pks5-4, two(More)
We apply high-level synthesis (HLS) to generate Blokus Duo game-playing hardware for the FPT 2013 Design Competition [3]. Our design, written in C, is synthesized using the LegUp open-source HLS tool to Verilog, then subsequently mapped using vendor tools to an Altera Cyclone IV FPGA on DE2 board. Our software implementation is designed to be amenable to(More)
PURPOSE The use of contrast-enhanced sonography (CEUS) has yielded promising results in the differentiation of thyroid nodules. We conducted this meta-analysis to assess its performance in identifying and distinguishing between benign and malignant thyroid nodules. METHODS PubMed, Medline, Embase, and the Cochrane Library were searched for studies(More)
ESCC (Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma) is a heterogeneous cancer with diverse prognosis. Here, to explore the biological diversity of ESCC, we employed gene expression profiles from 360 ESCC tumors from East Asians to establish a comprehensive molecular classification and characterization of ESCC. Using the specific 185-gene signature generated by(More)
