Type 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s), an innate source of the type 2 cytokines interleukin (IL)-5 and -13, participate in the maintenance of tissue homeostasis. Although type 2 immunity is critically important for mediating metabolic adaptations to environmental cold, the functions of ILC2s in beige or brown fat development are poorly defined. We report… (More)
In this work, we propose a novel parallel-pipeline traversal unit for hardware-based ray tracing, which can reduce latency and increase cache locality. Owing to the high memory bandwidth and computation requirements of ray-tracing operations such as traversal and intersection tests, recent studies have focused on the development of a hardware-based… (More)
Dear Editor, Ataxia with oculomotor apraxia type I (AOA1) is a recessively inherited ataxic disorder that is characterized clinically by the childhood onset of progressive cerebellar ataxia, oculomo-tor apraxia (OMA), and peripheral axonal sensorimotor neuropathy. 1 Dystonia, chorea, and cognitive impairment are commonly associated symptoms, and… (More)

OBJECTIVE To compare fluid thickeners composed of starch polysaccharide (STA), guar gum-based polysaccharide (GUA), and xanthan gum-based polysaccharide (XAN) with the use of a viscometer and a line spread test (LST) under various measurement conditions. METHODS The viscosity of thickened fluid with various concentrations (range, GUA 1%-4%, XAN 1%-6%, STA… (More)
