OBJECTIVES To evaluate possible lipid catabolism and body fat regulation effects of 3-caffeoylquinic acid in Green coffee bean extract (GCBE) in high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obese mice. METHODS Obesity was induced in mice using a HFD for four weeks. Then, mice were fed only HFD or HFD with GCBE at 50, 100, and 200 mg/kg. Fatty acid synthesis mechanism(More)
In this paper, we propose a progressive compression algorithm for three-dimensional (3-D) mesh data, which can efficiently encode the connectivity and geometry information. Using cosine index predictor and ver-tex confinement rule, the proposed scheme encodes the connectivity information compactly. For the geometry information coding, a 2-stage geometry(More)
In this paper, we present a novel geometry compression scheme for compactly representing 3-D sampled data. The proposed framework is based on the octree structured multiscale geometry representation, where local surface is expressed by multiscale plane descriptions. To reduce planar redundancy between different scale plane approximations in the multiscale(More)
An algorithm for robust transmission of compressed 3-D mesh data is proposed in this work. In the encoder, we partition a 3-D mesh adaptively according to the surface complexity, and then encode each partition separately to reduce the error propagation effect. To encode joint boundaries compactly, we propose a boundary edge collapse rule, which also enables(More)
