The neuropeptide alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) inhibits inflammation by down-regulating the expression of proinflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) in leukocytes via stimulation of alpha-MSH cell surface receptors. However, the signaling mechanism of alpha-MSH action has not yet been clearly elucidated.(More)
—An iterative algorithm employing decision feedback provided by either an equalizer or a channel decoder is proposed in order to compensate for the phase noise resulting from imperfect oscillators in orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems. In the proposed algorithm, the received OFDM symbol is partitioned into subblocks in the time domain(More)
—The asymptotic performance of a polar code under successive cancellation decoding is determined by the exponent of its polarizing matrix. We first prove that the partial distances of a polarizing matrix constructed from the Kronecker product are simply expressed as a product of those of its component matrices. We then show that the exponent of the(More)
Oxidative stress contributes to cellular injury following clinical and experimental ischemia/reperfusion episodes. Oxidative injury can induce cellular and subcellular damage that results in apoptotic cell death. We tested whether 2',4',7-trihydroxyflavanone, a synthetic flavonoid derivative, inhibits hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2))-induced toxicity in human(More)
In this paper we propose a stopping rule for adaptive turbo equalizers based on low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes. Using an extrinsic information transfer (EXIT) chart, we analyze the convergence behavior of a turbo equalizer and devise an adaptive turbo equalizer with stopping rule. It monitors the status of iterative decoding and stops performing(More)
