Handling Multiword Expressions in Causality Estimation
It is demonstrated that the proper treatment of multiword expression events is effective and the proposed method outperforms the state-of-the-art causality estimation model.
Subword-based Compact Reconstruction of Word Embeddings
This paper proposes a method of reconstructing pre-trained word embeddings using subword information that can effectively represent a large number of subword embedDings in a considerably small fixed space and demonstrates the effectiveness of the reconstruction method when applied to downstream tasks.
Cross-Lingual Learning-to-Rank with Shared Representations
A large-scale dataset derived from Wikipedia is introduced to support CLIR research in 25 languages and a simple yet effective neural learning-to-rank model is presented that shares representations across languages and reduces the data requirement.
Macrophage inflammatory protein‐1α (MIP‐1α) expression plasmid enhances DNA vaccine‐induced immune response against HIV‐1
It is demonstrated that MIP‐1α expression plasmid inoculated together with DNA vaccine acts as a strong adjuvant for eliciting Th1‐derived immunity.
Gas-liquid interfacial plasmas producing reactive species for cell membrane permeabilization
Results suggest that •OHaq is likely one of the dominant factors responsible for plasma-induced cell-membrane permeabilization, which is found to decay markedly as the thickness of the solution increases.
Improvement of cell membrane permeability using a cell-solution electrode for generating atmospheric-pressure plasma.
Cell membrane permeability is found to be enhanced by the shorter distance between the solution surface and the adherent cells as well as using the cell-solution electrode, which means that the short-lived reactive oxygen species generated at the solutionsurface are essential for the improvement of cell membranes permeability.
Total Synthesis of (±)-Dysibetaine CPa and Analogs†
The syntheses of the marine sponge-derived γ-amino carboxylic acid dysibetaine CPa and five analogs in their racemic forms were successfully performed by taking advantage of an electron-withdrawing
Calcium influx through TRP channels induced by short-lived reactive species in plasma-irradiated solution
It is shown that relatively short-lived unclassified reactive species generated by the He-APP irradiation can trigger physiologically relevant Ca2+ influx through ruthenium red- and SKF 96365-sensitive Ca2-permeable channel(s), possibly transient receptor potential channel family member(s).
Cold atmospheric plasma enhances osteoblast differentiation
Results show that plasma irradiation under specific conditions increased ALP activity and enhanced mineralization, and demonstrated that the yield of radicals was increased in an irradiation-time-dependent manner.
