The aim of the present study was to investigate whether asiatic acid (AA), a pentacyclic triterpene derived from Centella asiatica, exerts anti-proliferative effects on multiple myeloma RPMI 8226 cells and to determine the molecular mechanism underlying the anticancer action of AA. The study sought to analyze the potential role of AA on the proliferation of(More)
We sought to elucidate the effects of different concentrations of dietary selenium on calcium ion release, MLCK levels, and muscle contraction in the uterine smooth muscle of rats. The selenium (Se) content of blood and of uterine smooth muscle tissues was detected by fluorescence spectrophotometry. Ca2+ content was measured by atomic absorption(More)
—This paper considers the channel capacity of 60GHz wireless communications systems over Rayleigh fading channels and Ricean fading channels. The SNR and therefore capacity varies according to the communication distance. The capacity is presented for line-of-sight (LOS) and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) channels given based on a 60GHz link budget model. Phase(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine perceptions of fairness of a computer-administered quiz as a function of the anthropomorphic features of the help agent offered within the quiz environment. The addition of simple anthropomorphic cues to a computer help agent reduced the perceived friendliness of the agent, perceived intelligence of the agent, and(More)
Mycoplasma bovis infection can cause endometrial inflammation leading to infertility and involuntary culling in dairy cows. Because extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins affect the adherence of mycoplasma to eukaryotic cell surface, they may play a role in the pathogenesis of the bacteria. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the endometrial(More)
Researchers regularly access and review large amounts of literatures. In the previous work, we presented a bookmarklet-triggered literature sharing system, which combines bibliography functionalities along with DOI content negotiation services. In this paper, we have made secondary development work to integrate literature recommendation functionalities into(More)
AtDjB1 is a member of the Arabidopsis thaliana J-protein family. AtDjB1 is targeted to the mitochondria and plays a crucial role in A. thaliana heat and oxidative stress resistance. Herein, the role of AtDjB1 in adapting to saline and drought stress was studied in A. thaliana. AtDjB1 expression was induced through salinity, dehydration and abscisic acid(More)
Introduction Craters are among the most studied geomorphic features in the Solar System because they yield important information about the past and present geological processes and provide information about the relative ages of observed geologic formations. We present a method for automatic crater detection using advanced machine learning to deal with the(More)
Microblog, Twitter, status messages, the classified information website and so on are experiencing explosive growth with the development of web2.0, people prefer to use short texts to express their intentions and activities. Yet, when people submit some requirements through short texts, they hope to get a feedback which can help them to solve their problems(More)
