Cells operate in dynamic environments using extraordinary communication capabilities that emerge from the interactions of genetic circuitry. The mammalian immune response is a striking example of the coordination of different cell types. Cell-to-cell communication is primarily mediated by signalling molecules that form spatiotemporal concentration(More)
We describe an adaptive image deconvolution algorithm (AIDA) for myopic deconvolution of multi-frame and three-dimensional data acquired through astronomical and microscopic imaging. AIDA is a reimplementation and extension of the MISTRAL method developed by Mugnier and co-workers and shown to yield object reconstructions with excellent edge preservation(More)
We describe a framework for capturing firewall requirements as high-level descriptions based on the policy specification language Ponder. The framework provides abstraction from hardware implementation while allowing performance control through constraints. Our hardware compilation strategy for such descriptions involves a rule reduction step to produce a(More)
Augmented reality involves combining three-dimensional real and synthetic objects for real-time user interaction. We describe a framework for supporting augmented reality applications by appropriate hardware and software. The bene-ts of reconngurable computing, which allows op-timised video analysis and synthesis to adapt to environmental changes, are(More)
Understanding the precise molecular mechanisms that trigger liver cancer cell migration and invasion could develop novel therapeutic strategies targeting cancer cell invasion to increase the sensitivity to current treatment modalities. In the current study, 49 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were included prospectively. Liver tumour and(More)
High-performance firewalls can benefit from the increasing size, speed and flexibility of advanced reconfig-urable hardware. However, direct translation of conventional firewall rules in a router-based rule set often leads to inefficient hardware implementation. Moreover, such low-level description of firewall rules tends to be difficult to manage and to(More)
Tumour recurrence and metastases of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after hepatectomy are the major obstacles of long-term survival. The present study investigated the clinicopathological significance of a possible metastasis regulator Six1 in HCC patients who were undergone hepatectomy. Seventy-two pairs of RNA and 103 pairs of protein from tumour and(More)
Transport systems that mediate glutathione (GSH) efflux from hepatocytes into blood plasma and bile have been characterized extensively in sinusoidal and canalicular membrane vesicles, and recent reports describe two candidate GSH transport proteins: the rat sinusoidal GSH transporter (RsGshT) and rat canalicular GSH transporter (RcGshT). However, studies(More)
