Computational complexity analysis for multiple hypothesis tracking. Evaluation of multiple target track initiation techniques in real radar tracking environments. Integrated real-time estimation of clutter density for tracking. Multiassignment for tracking a large number of overlapping objects. In this correspondence, we generalize the linear antenna array(More)
Vegetative growth and reproductive growth strongly competes with each other during panicle development in litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.). We herein investigated the roles of hydrogen peroxide and nitric oxide in the competition between growth of rudimentary leaves and panicle development. The results show that the chilling-induced flowering increased H2O2(More)
Insulin-induced activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinases [ERKs, also known as mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinases] is mediated by Ras. Insulin activates Ras primarily by increasing the rate of guanine nucleotide-releasing activity. Here, we show that insulin-induced activation of ERKs was enhanced by stable overexpression of growth factor(More)
Guanylate cyclase-activating protein 1 (GCAP1) and guanylate cyclase-inhibitory protein (GCIP) are calmodulin-related Ca2+-binding proteins expressed in vertebrate photoreceptor cells. GCAP1 activates photoreceptor guanylate cyclase 1 (GC1) at low free [Ca2+] (<50 nM, in the light), but inhibits it at physiological high [Ca2+] (1 microM, in the dark). GCIP,(More)
Two guanylate-cyclase-activating proteins (GCAP) encoded by a tail-to-tail gene array have been characterized in the mammalian retina. Using frog retina as a model, we obtained evidence for the presence of a photoreceptor Ca2+-binding protein closely related to GCAP. This protein (206 amino acids) does not stimulate guanylate cyclase (GC) in low [Ca2+], but(More)
BCR-ABL is a chimeric oncoprotein that exhibits deregulated tyrosine kinase activity and is implicated in the pathogenesis of Philadelphia chromosome (Ph1)-positive human leukemias. Sequences within the first exon of BCR are required to activate the transforming potential of BCR-ABL. The SH2/SH3 domain-containing GRB-2 protein links tyrosine kinases to Ras(More)
Our previous studies demonstrated resveratrol (Res) administration protected Alzheimer's disease (AD) rats from developing memory decline by anti-oxidation. Beta-amyloid peptide 1-42 (Aβ1-42) is not only the primary protein component of senile plaques in AD but also is believed to play an important part in its pathology. Increasing evidence has shown(More)
BACKGROUND Portal vein tumour thrombus (PVTT) is highly associated with the progression and metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, there are no appropriate cell models of PVTT with which to study the biological and physiological characteristics of PVTT. METHODS Primary cell culture was performed by the use of a successive xenograft line(More)
STUDY DESIGN In vitro studies using isolated guinea pig spinal cord. OBJECTIVES To develop an alternative model using isolated guinea pig spinal cord, which can be used to screen antioxidants for in vivo SCI treatment. SETTING Department of Basic Medical Sciences, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA. METHODS The compression injury was(More)
The process of heat regulation is complex and the exact molecular mechanism is not fully understood. To investigate the global gene response to chronic heat exposure, a breast muscle cDNA library and a liver tissue cDNA library from Silkie fowl were constructed and analyzed in bioinformatics. A total of 8,935 nonredundant EST were identified from and used(More)
