This paper presents CSPR, a compressive sensing based approach for path reconstruction in wireless sensor networks. By viewing the whole network as a path representation space, an arbitrary routing path can be represented by a path vector in the space. As path length is usually much smaller than the network size, such path vectors are sparse, i.e., the(More)
Sustained increase in intraocular pressure represents a major risk factor for eye disease, yet the cellular mechanisms of pressure transduction in the posterior eye are essentially unknown. Here we show that the mouse retina expresses mRNA and protein for the polymodal transient receptor potential vanilloid 4 (TRPV4) cation channel known to mediate(More)
In this paper, we propose a Core Grid Ontology (CGO) that defines fundamental Grid-specific concepts, and the relationships between them. One of the key goals is to make this Core Grid Ontology general enough and easily extensible to be used by different Grid architectures or Grid middleware, so that the CGO can provide a common basis for representing Grid(More)
The light response in retinal ON bipolar cells is associated with disinhibition of current flow through cation channels recently identified as type 1 members of the melastatin transient receptor potential (TRPM) family. We determined the developmental expression of Trpm1 in the wild type C57BL/6, DBA/2J, DBA2J-Gpnmb mouse retinas and in Pde6brd1 retinas(More)

Microporous carbon materials with extremely small pore size are prepared by employing polyaniline as a carbon precursor and KOH as an activating agent. CO(2) sorption performance of the materials is systematically investigated at the temperatures of 0, 25 and 75 °C. The prepared carbons show very high CO(2) uptake of up to 1.86 and 1.39 mmol g(-1) under 1(More)
For some special applications, the mobile sensor network is more suitable than static sensor network. When sensors become mobile, connectivity assurance and energy saving become two challenges. In this paper, we propose the SRTSD (Spanning Routing Tree protocol based on State Diffusion) and SRTSD-DA (SRTSD with Data Aggregation) protocols to ensure the(More)
The problem of mobility in IP networks has traditionally been solved at the network layer. We present an alternative solution that solves it at the transport layer in an end-to-end fashion, leveraging the ability of a modern transport layer protocol (SCTP) to use multiple IP addresses per association. This is achieved by dynamically modifying this set of IP(More)
Aluminum-induced neuronal injury has been implicated in various neurodegenerative disorders. However, the underlying mechanism involved in this pathogenesis still remains unknown. Our present findings demonstrated that chronic aluminum exposure resulted in spatial learning impairment and significantly increased intracellular calcium level in the hippocampus(More)
In a neutrophil-dependent arthritis elicited by injections of a mixture of anti – type II colla-gen mAbs followed by LPS, mice lacking the tyrosine-based inhibitory receptor leukocyte Ig-like receptor B4 (LILRB4) have an exacerbated clinical response characterized morphologically by greater synovial thickening with neutrophil infi ltration and depletion of(More)
Of the potent lipid inflammatory mediators comprising the cysteinyl leukotrienes (LTs; LTC4, LTD4, and LTE4), only LTE4 is stable and abundant in vivo. Although LTE4 shows negligible activity at the type 1 and 2 receptors for cys-LTs (CysLT1R and CysLT2R), it is a powerful inducer of mucosal eosinophilia and airway hyperresponsiveness in humans with asthma.(More)
