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)
A blind algorithm is proposed in order to compensate for the phase noise resulting from imperfect oscillators in orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems over constant modulus modulation. In the proposed algorithm, one received OFDM symbol is partitioned into subblocks in the time domain and the phase noise over each subblock is(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)
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)
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)
