The thrombopoietin receptor (TpoR) is a type I transmembrane protein that mediates the signaling functions of thrombopoietin (Tpo) in regulating megakaryocyte differentiation, platelet formation, and hematopoietic stem cell renewal. We probed the role of each of the four extracellular domain putative N-glycosylation sites for cell surface localization and(More)
BACKGROUND KANK1-PDGFRB is a fusion gene generated by the t(5;9) translocation between KANK1 and the platelet-derived growth factor receptor beta gene PDGFRB. This hybrid was identified in a myeloproliferative neoplasm featuring severe thrombocythemia, in the absence of the JAK2 V617F mutation. DESIGN AND METHODS KANK1-PDGFRB was transduced into Ba/F3(More)
—The behavior of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) is nowadays widely analyzed. One of the most important issues is related to their energy consumption, as this has a major impact on the network lifetime. Another important application requirement is to ensure data sensing synchronization, which leads to additional energy consumption as a high number of(More)
PURPOSE To investigate if cetuximab induces epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) and activation of cancer associated fibroblast (CAF) in the tumors of patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (SCCHN). METHODS Cetuximab was administered for two weeks prior to surgery to 20 treatment-naïve patients. Five untreated patients were(More)
This paper deals with the embedded network dedicated to the entertainment system of passenger cabin in an aircraft. The work described in this paper focuses on a wireless solution to interconnect the main components of this system. The selected solution is UWB with smart antennas. This solution is proved to be able to provide the system with the needed(More)
