Face sketch synthesis has wide applications in digital entertainment and law enforcement. Although there is much research on face sketch synthesis, most existing algorithms cannot handle some nonfacial factors, such as hair style, hairpins, and glasses if these factors are excluded in the training set. In addition, previous methods only work on well(More)
This pHLIP is no flop: Functionalizing mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) with pHLIPss peptide provides a controlled-release nanoparticle drug delivery system targeting the acidic tumor microenvironment. At low pH values, pHLIPss inserts into the cell membrane and translocates carriers into cells, where the cargo is released by the cleavage of the(More)
Face sketch-photo synthesis plays an important role in law enforcement and digital entertainment. Most of the existing methods only use pixel intensities as the feature. Since face images can be described using features from multiple aspects, this paper presents a novel multiple representations-based face sketch-photo-synthesis method that adaptively(More)
We developed an analog memristor based on the thickening/thinning of Ag nanofilaments in amorphous La(1-x)Sr(x)MnO3 (a-LSMO) thin films. The Ag/a-LSMO/Pt memristor exhibited excellent pinched hysteresis loops under high-excitation frequency, and the areas enclosed by the pinched hysteresis loops shrank with increasing excitation frequency, which is a(More)
The effects on the growth, physiological indexes and the cadmium (Cd) accumulation in Chlorophytum comosum under Cd stress were examined by pot-planting. The results showed that the tolerance index (TI) of C. comosum were all above 100 in soil Cd concentration of 100 mg kg(-1). The O(2˙)⁻ production rate and electrical conductivity of C. comosum were(More)
Minocycline is as effective as tetracycline in inducing pleural fibrosis, but the long-term pleural changes induced by minocycline are unknown. The objective of this study was to evaluate in rabbits the evolution of the pleural changes induced by the intrapleural instillation of minocycline. Under light anesthesia, minocycline at 10 mg/kg in a total volume(More)
This paper comprehensively surveys the development of face hallucination (FH), including both face super-resolution and face sketch-photo synthesis techniques. Indeed, these two techniques share the same objective of inferring a target face image (e.g. high-resolution face image, face sketch and face photo) from a corresponding source input (e.g.(More)
Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) is postulated to play a role in the pathophysiology of pulmonary fibrosis. Recombinant human PDGF-BB administered as a single intratracheal injection in rats causes an increase in peribronchial and perivascular stromal cells on days 2 and 3 after injection as evaluated by hematoxylin and eosin histology and(More)
To enhance γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) production in recombinant Corynebacterium glutamicum, metabolic engineering strategies were used to improve the supply of the GABA precursor, l-glutamate. C. glutamicum ATCC13032 co-expressing two glutamate decarboxylase genes (gadB1 and gadB2) was constructed in a previous study Shi et al. (J Ind Microbiol Biotechnol(More)
