In order to achieve diverse arrived power in uplink nonorthogonal multiple access (NOMA), an uplink power control scheme is proposed. The proposed scheme makes evolved NodeB (eNB) distinguish the multiplexing user equipments (UEs) in power domain. The outage performance and the achievable sum data rate for the proposed scheme are theoretically analyzed, and(More)
To increase the number of successful accesses for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, we propose a new random access (RA) procedure. The proposed RA procedure allows evolved NodeB (eNB) to know the preamble collisions in the first step by attaching user equipment (UE) identity information in physical random access channel (PRACH). This improvement(More)
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is characterized by the wide use of herbal formulae, which are capable of systematically treating diseases determined by interactions among various herbs. However, the combination rule of TCM herbal formulae remains a mystery due to the lack of appropriate methods. From a network perspective, we established a method called(More)
Multicomponent therapeutics offer bright prospects for the control of complex diseases in a synergistic manner. However, finding ways to screen the synergistic combinations from numerous pharmacological agents is still an ongoing challenge. In this work, we proposed for the first time a “network target”-based paradigm instead of the traditional "single(More)
Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH)-type transcription factors play diverse roles in plant physiological response and stress-adaptive regulation network. Here, we identified one grapevine bHLH transcription factor from a cold-tolerant accession ‘Heilongjiang seedling’ of Chinese wild Vitis amurensis (VabHLH1) as a transcriptional activator involved in cold(More)
Follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) plays an important role in animal follicular development. Polymorphisms in FSHR promoter region likely impact transcription and follicle growth and maturation. In this study, a fragment of ~1.9 kb of cFSHR promoter for Zang, Xianju, Lohmann Brown, Jining Bairi and Wenchang breeds (line) was obtained. Totally 49(More)
Selenoprotein S (SelS), a member of selenoprotein family, plays important regulatory function in inflammation and metabolic diseases. SelS expression is up-regulated response to the inflammatory stimulus in many mammal cells, animal models as well as patients. In order to further understand the function of SelS gene, molecular characterization and(More)
Winter hardiness is an important trait for grapevine breeders and producers, so identification of the regulatory mechanisms involved in cold acclimation is of great potential value. The work presented here involves the identification of two grapevine ICE gene homologs, VaICE1 and VaICE2, from an extremely cold-tolerant accession of Chinese wild-growing(More)
Glycosylation is one of the most important posttranslational modifications of proteins and plays essential roles in various biological processes. Aberration in the glycan moieties of glycoproteins is associated with many diseases. It is especially critical to develop the rapid and sensitive methods for analysis of aberrant glycoproteins associated with(More)
Vitis amurensis Rupr. is an exceptional wild-growing Vitis (grape) species that can safely survive a wide range of cold conditions, but the underlying cold-adaptive mechanism associated with gene regulation is poorly investigated. We have analyzed the physiochemical and transcriptomic changes caused by cold stress in a cold-tolerant accession, ‘Heilongjiang(More)
