Remote-zone left ventricular dysfunction (LVD) contributes to global reductions in contractile function after localized myocardial infarction (MI). However, the molecular mechanisms underlying this form of LVD are not clear. This study tested the hypothesis that myofibrillar protein function is directly affected in remote-zone LVD early after MI. Cardiac(More)
Tropomyosin (Tm) is one of the major phosphoproteins comprising the thin filament of muscle. However, the specific role of Tm phosphorylation in modulating the mechanics of actomyosin interaction has not been determined. Here we show that Tm phosphorylation is necessary for long-range cooperative activation of myosin binding. We used a novel optical(More)
Miniaturization of devices with higher computational capacity coupled with advancement in communication technologies is driving the growth of deployment of sensors and actuators in our surroundings. To keep up the pace with this growth, these tiny, battery-powered devices need small-sized and high-energy density batteries for longer operation time, which(More)
IEEE 802.22 is the first standard to uitilize cognitive radio technology for wireless regional area networks (WRANs). It has adopted a cellular topology containing one base station (BS) and multiple customer premises equipments (CPEs) in a cell. It covers a very large area with radius ranging up to 100 km. Orthogonal frequency-division multiple access(More)
BACKGROUND Nitric oxide (NO) has long been recognized to affect muscle contraction, both through activation of guanylyl cyclase and through modification of cysteines in proteins to yield S-nitrosothiols. While NO affects the contractile apparatus directly, the identities of the target myofibrillar proteins remain unknown. Here we report that nitrogen oxides(More)
With the advent of Internet of Things (IoT), many newer possibilities of service provisioning are opening up. Truly Google like searching for objects in our daily life is not ruled out in near future. Towards this aim, we have proposed Approximate service provisioning in our previous works [18, 19]. In this paper we propose a model for such a service. We(More)
In wireless networks many nodes contend for available resources creating a challenge in resource allocation. With shared resources, fairness in allocation is a serious issue. Fairness metrics have been defined to measure the fairness level of resource decisions in allocations. Therefore, fairness metrics significantly influence network and node performances(More)
Cognitive Radios (CRs) address spectrum scarcity and under-utilization of the spectrum. However, realizing a CR network is neither easy nor straight-forward. In particular the link layer should facilitate setting up of communication between nodes enabling sharing of channels, while maximizing the spectrum utilization. We address the problem of allocation of(More)
