Purine nucleoside phosphorylase (PNP) is a key enzyme in the purine salvage pathway. It catalyses the reversible phosphorolysis of purine (2'-deoxy)ribonucleosides to free bases and (2'-deoxy)ribose 1-phosphates. Here, a novel piscine viral PNP gene that was identified from grouper iridovirus (GIV), a causative agent of an epizootic fish disease, is(More)
The Adaboosting has attracted attention for its efficient face-detection performance. However, in the training process, the large number of possible Haar-like features in a standard sub-window becomes time consuming, which makes specific environment feature adaptation extremely difficult. This letter presents a two-stage hybrid face detection scheme using(More)
In this paper, the Pixel-Based Hierarchical-Feature Adaboosting (PBHFA) method is presented. The purpose of this approach is the reduction of computation complexity in face-detection tasks. The Adaboosting method has attracted attention for its efficient face-detection performance. However, in the training process, the large number of possible Haar-like(More)
Objective. To determine whether immunological serum markers IFN-γ, IL-4, IL-17, IL-23, IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-10 are elevated or decreased in patients compared with healthy controls. Methods. A complete search of the literature on this topic within the past 30 years was conducted across seven databases. Seventeen studies including 768 individuals were(More)
