Transient receptor potential canonical (TRPC) proteins have been identified as a family of plasma membrane calcium-permeable channels. TRPC proteins can be activated by various stimuli and act as cellular sensors in mammals. Stretch-activated ion channels (SACs) have been proposed to underlie cardiac mechano-electric feedback (MEF), although the molecular(More)
TRPV4 protein forms a Ca2+-permeable channel that is sensitive to osmotic and mechanical stimuli and responds to warm temperatures, and expresses widely in various kinds of tissues. As for cardiac myocytes, TRPV4 has been detected only at the mRNA level and there were few reports about subcellular localization of the protein. The purpose of the present(More)
So far path coverage problem has been studied widely to characterize the properties of the coverage of a path or a track in an area induced by a sensor network, in which the path or track is usually treated as a curve and the width of it can be ignored. However, sensor networks often are employed to carry out road surveillance or target tracking, in which(More)
In the past decades, techniques for tumor diagnosis and treatment have been significantly advanced. However, the five-year survival rate of cancer patients remains low. New modalities are highly desirable based on technology innovation and translational medicine. In this paper, recent outcomes of thermal ablation techniques are reviewed, including thermal(More)
An increase in Ca 2+ concentration in the nucleus may activate the PCD of secretory cavity cells, and further Ca 2+ accumulation contributes to the regulation of nuclear DNA degradation. Calcium plays an important role in plant programmed cell death (PCD). Previously, we confirmed that PCD was involved in the degradation of secretory cavity cells in Citrus(More)
