BACKGROUND Ezrin is a member of the ezrin, radixin, and moesin family that provides a functional link between the plasma membrane and the cortical actin cytoskeleton. A correlation between ezrin overexpression and aggressive cancer behavior has been recently reported in various tumor types. However, its roles in the mechanisms underlying progression of(More)
BACKGROUND Refluxogenic effects of smoking and alcohol abuse may be related to the risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). The present study attempts to clarify the effects of continuous taurocholic acid (TCA) exposure, which is neither mutagenic nor genotoxic, on ESCC progression. METHODS A squamous carcinoma cell line (ESCC-DR) was(More)
We report the synthesis and photophysical/photoredox characteristics of a novel tricarbonyl rhenium(I) complex having a (dimesityl)boryldurylethynyl (DBDE) group at the 4-position of a 1,10-phenanthroline (phen) ligand, [Re(CO)(3)(4-DBDE-phen)Br] (ReB). ReB in tetrahydrofuran at 298 K showed the metal-to-ligand charge transfer (MLCT) emission at around 681(More)
The objective of this research is to evaluate the ε-minimum overflow threshold of the Bayes codes for a Markov source. In the lossless variable-length source coding problem, typical criteria are the mean codeword length and the overflow probability. The overflow probability is the probability with which a codeword length per source symbol exceeds a(More)
Some problems concerning the application of the interregional cohort survival model developed by Andrei Rogers to the analysis of regional population dynamics are first discussed. The author then develops an iterative proportional fitting procedure in order to estimate a complete migration table where only inconsistent marginals are available. The(More)
This paper considers universal lossless variable-length source coding problem and deals with one of the fundamental limits and pointwise asymptotics of the Bayes code for stationary ergodic finite order Markov sources. As investigation of the fundamental limits, we show upper and lower bounds of the minimum rate such that the probability which exceeds it is(More)
Micro-blogging services, such as Twitter, offer opportunities to analyse user behaviour. Discovering and distinguishing behavioural patterns in micro-blogging services is valuable. However, it is difficult and challenging to distinguish users, and to track the temporal development of collective attention within distinct user groups in Twitter. In this(More)
In social networking services (SNSs), persistent topics are extremely rare and valuable. In this paper, we propose an algorithm for the detection of persistent topics in SNSs based on Topic Graph. A topic graph is a subgraph of the ordinary social network graph that consists of the users who shared a certain topic up to some time point. Based on the(More)
This paper deals with one-shot fixed-to-variable length source coding allowing error probability. We adopt the criterion of the overflow probability and treat prefix and non-prefix codes. The infimum of the threshold of the overflow probability is investigated under the condition that the error probability and the overflow probability are bounded above by(More)
