An obstacle detection approach based on stereo vision is proposed for mobile robot navigation. The aim of the approach is to detect a real environment to allow a mobile robot to find a safe path even in complex scenarios. Our novelty is represented in terms of the two-stage perception structure. The detection stage infers the relationship between obstacles(More)
Whether coat proteins play a widespread role in endocytic recycling remains unclear. We find that ACAP1, a GTPase-activating protein (GAP) for ADP-ribosylation factor (ARF) 6, is part of a novel clathrin coat complex that is regulated by ARF6 for endocytic recycling in two key physiological settings, stimulation-dependent recycling of integrin that is(More)
Endocytic recycling returns proteins to the plasma membrane in many physiological contexts. Studies of these events have helped to elucidate fundamental mechanisms that underlie recycling. Recycling was for some time considered to be the exception to a general mechanism of active cargo sorting in multiple intracellular pathways. In recent years, studies(More)
Ball and plate system is a typical under-actuated system with inherent nonlinearity. Motion control of the system included the set-point problem and the tracking problem along desired trajectory. A supervisory fuzzy controller was proposed for studying these problems, which was composed of two layers. The low layer defined a SIRM fuzzy rule and an(More)
Wu-tou decoction (WTD) has been extensively used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Due to lack of appropriate methods, pharmacological mechanisms of WTD acting on RA have not been fully elucidated. In this study, a list of putative targets for compositive compounds containing in WTD were predicted by drugCIPHER-CS. Then, the interaction(More)
Sorafenib in combination with Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is increasingly used in patients with unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but the current evidence is still controversial. The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of TACE plus sorafenib versus TACE alone for unresectable HCC. We searched(More)
This study examines the evolution hindwing shape in Chinese dung beetle species using morphometric and phylogenetic analyses. Previous studies have analyzed the evolution of wing shape within a single or very few species, or by comparing only a few wing traits. No study has analyzed wing shape evolution of a large number of species, or quantitatively(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to estimate the burden of currently having depressive symptoms on quality of life independently and in combination with various chronic conditions/health concerns among adults with Medicare Supplement Insurance (i.e., Medigap) coverage. METHODS Data were obtained from the Health Update Survey (HUS). The HUS contains questions on(More)
