The present study used the endpoint of hypothermia to investigate opioid and neuropeptide FF (NPFF) interactions in conscious animals. Both opioid and NPFF systems played important roles in thermoregulation, which suggested a link between opioid receptors and NPFF receptors in the production of hypothermia. Therefore, we designed a study to investigate the(More)
The endogenous opioid system has been found to be involved in the fever caused by lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Neuropeptide FF (NPFF, FLFQPQRF-NH(2)) is an endogenous peptide known to modulate opioid activity, mainly in the central nervous system. Therefore, those data suggested a link between LPS-induced fever and NPFF systems. Using a model of acute(More)
An efficient background modeling technique is a key step in surveillance or video content processing systems such as event detection, human action recognition and semantic indexing of video. In this paper, a simple but efficient modeling scheme, which is able to deal with static and dynamic backgrounds, is presented. First, each pixel is averaged by a group(More)
The correct folding of a protein is a pre-requirement for its proper posttranslational modification. The Escherichia coli Sec pathway, in which preproteins, in an unfolded, translocation-competent state, are rapidly secreted across the cytoplasmic membrane, is commonly assumed to be unfavorable for their modification in the cytosol. Whether(More)
Fusion tag is one of the best available tools to date for enhancement of the solubility or improvement of the expression level of recombinant proteins in Escherichia coli. Typically, two consecutive affinity purification steps are often necessitated for the purification of passenger proteins. As a fusion tag, acyl carrier protein (ACP) could greatly(More)
