Bone is one of the most frequent targets of small cell lung cancer (SCLC) metastasis, but the molecular mechanism remains unclear. β3-integrin plays an important role in invasion of various kinds of tumors. Yet, its role in bone-metastasis of SCLC is still unknown. In this study, we first examined the expression of β3-integrin in SBC-5 and SBC-3 cells by(More)
For urban economies, an ecological endowment embodiment analysis has to be supported by endowment intensities at both the international and domestic scales to reflect the international and domestic imports of increasing importance. A three-scale input–output mod-eling for an urban economy to give nine categories of embodiment fluxes is presented in this(More)
Ceramides are known to be a key component of the stratum corneum, the outermost protective layer of the skin that controls barrier function. In this work, molecular dynamics simulations are used to examine the behavior of ceramide bilayers, focusing on non-hydroxy sphingosine (NS) and non-hydroxy phytosphingosine (NP) ceramides. Here, we propose a modified(More)
Endmember extraction and spectral unmixing is a very challenging task in multispectral/hyperspectral image processing due to the incompleteness of information. In this paper, a new method for endmember extraction and spectral unmixing of hyperspectral images is proposed, which is called as minimum distance constrained nonnegative matrix factorization(More)
Algorithms based on reflectance band ratios and first derivative have been developed for the estimation of chlorophyll a and carotenoid content of rice leaves by using airborne hyperspectral data acquainted by Pushbroom Hyperspectral Imager (PHI). There was a strong R680/R825 and chlorophyll a relationship with a linear relationship between the ratio of(More)
Biodiversity in China is analyzed based on the components of the Dynamic Habitat Index (DHI). First, observed field survey based spatial patterns of species richness including threatened species are presented to test their linear relationship with remote sensing based DHI (2001–2010 MODIS). Areas with a high cumulative DHI component are associated with(More)
Research on global climate change requires plant functional type (PFT) products. Although several PFT mapping procedures for remote sensing imagery are being used, none of them appears to be specifically designed to map and evaluate PFTs over broad mountainous areas which are highly relevant regions to identify and analyze the response of natural(More)
