— Spectrum sensing is a challenging task for cognitive radio. Energy detection is one of the popular spectrum sensing technique for cognitive radio. In this paper we analyze the performance of energy detection technique to detect primary user (PU). Simulation results show that the probability of detection increases significantly when signal to noise ratio(More)
To clarify the cause of the predilection of Babesia gibsoni for reticulocytes and canine HK erythrocytes (containing high concentrations of potassium) with inherited high concentrations of some amino acids, including glutamate, 4 enzymes in B. gibsoni parasites were examined by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE). The enzymes, i.e., hexokinase,(More)
GM1 gangliosidosis is a fatal, progressive neurodegenerative lysosomal storage disease caused by mutations in the β-galactosidase (GLB1) gene. In feline GM1 gangliosidosis, a pathogenic mutation (c.1448G>C) in the feline GLB1 gene was identified in Siamese cats in the United States and Japan and in Korat cats in Western countries. The present study found(More)
A significant numbers of 'mad cow' disease outbreaks around the globe as well as the recent food safety concerns in Japan, Europe, and Korea increase the necessity of a lifetime traceable information system of animals. Ideally, this system would generate a lifetime history of the potentially affected animals and simultaneously allow unaffected livestock(More)
GM2 gangliosidosis variant 0 (Sandhoff disease, SD) is a fatal, progressive neurodegenerative lysosomal storage disease caused by mutations in the HEXB gene. Toy poodles recently were reported as the second breed of dog with SD. The present paper describes the molecular defect of this canine SD as the first identification of a pathogenic mutation in the(More)
Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (NCL) constitutes a group of recessively inherited lysosomal storage diseases that primarily affect neuronal cells. Such diseases share certain clinical and pathologic features in human beings and animals. Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis in Border Collie dogs was first detected in Australia in the 1980s, and the pathogenic(More)
Cognitive radio is a novel technology that can potentially improve the utilization efficiency of the radio spectrum. Spectrum sensing is the key component of cognitive radio technology. However, detection is compromised when a user experiences shadowing or fading effects. In such cases, user cannot distinguish between an unused band and a deep fade. Thus,(More)
Three Japanese Black cows housed with 6 other cows exhibited main clinical symptoms of severe hemoglobinuria. Hematological analyses conducted after antibiotic therapy demonstrated severe anemia, and biochemical analyses indicated both severe hemolysis and disruption of hepatic function. One of the three cows died. Based on the above analyses and(More)
Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with TaqMan minor groove binder (MGB) probes was examined to establish a rapid and reliable genotyping technique for GM1 gangliosidosis in Shiba dogs. This technique was applied to DNA samples extracted from the blood, umbilical cord, or postmortem liver tissue specimens, and to DNA-containing solutions prepared(More)
