In standard matrix completion theory, it is required to have at least O(n ln n) observed entries to perfectly recover a low-rank matrix M of size n × n, leading to a large number of observations when n is large. In many real tasks, side information in addition to the observed entries is often available. In this work, we develop a novel theory of matrix(More)
BACKGROUND Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is an endemic neoplasm in southern China. Although NPC sufferers are sensitive to radiotherapy, 20-30% of patients finally progress with recurrence and metastases. Elevated lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) has been reported to be associated with favorable prognosis in some hematology malignancies, but has not been(More)
Coxsackievirus 16 (CA16) is one of the major pathogens associated with hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) in infants and young children. In recent years, CA16 and human enterovirus 71 (EV71) have often circulated alternatively or together in the Western Pacific region, which has become an important public health problem in this region. HFMD caused by CA16(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous regulators of a broad range of physiological processes and act by either degrading mRNA or blocking its translation. Oilseed rape (Brassica napus) is one of the most important crops in China, Europe and other Asian countries with publicly available expressed sequence tags (ESTs) and genomic survey sequence (GSS) databases,(More)
The putative tumor suppressor miR145 is transcriptionally regulated by TP53 and is downregulated in many tumors; however, its role in prostate cancer is unknown. On the other hand, BCL2/adenovirus E1B 19-kDa interacting protein 3 (BNIP3) is overexpressed in various tumors, including prostate cancer, and may transcriptionally repress the apoptosis-inducing(More)
Research on smart meters has shown that fine-grained energy usage data poses privacy risks since it allows inferences about activities inside the home. While smart meter deployments are very limited, more than 40 million meters in the United States have been equipped with Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) technology over the past decades. AMR utilizes wireless(More)
Enterovirus 71 (EV71) and coxsackievirus A16 (CA16) are the predominant pathogens causing outbreaks of hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) worldwide. Other human enterovirus A (HEV-A) serotypes tend to cause only sporadic HFMD cases. However, since a HFMD caused by coxsackievirus A6 broke out in Finland in 2008, CA6 has been identified as the responsible(More)
BACKGROUND Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) may confer the cytoprotection in critical organs. The authors hypothesized that limb RIPC would reduce intestinal and pulmonary injury in patients undergoing open infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. METHODS In this single-center, prospective, double-blinded, randomized, parallel-controlled trial,(More)
Plants interact with their environment and they often flower earlier under stress conditions, but how such stress-induced flowering is regulated remains poorly understood. Here evidence is presented that the miR169 family plays a key role in stress-induced flowering in plants. The microRNA (miRNA) miR169 family members are up-regulated in Arabidopsis,(More)
ECG(Electrocardiogram) recognition and monitor are inevitable to trace and determine heart diseases. As self-health being focused on and social medical grade being progressed, ECG monitors with features such as portable/wearable, wireless, use-friendly, low-cost and convenient at home, are more and more necessary. Unfortunately, such kind of equipments(More)
