—This study develops a high-performance stand-alone photovoltaic (PV) generation system. To make the PV generation system more flexible and expandable, the backstage power circuit is composed of a high step-up converter and a pulsewidth-modulation (PWM) inverter. In the dc–dc power conversion, the high step-up converter is introduced to improve the(More)
A mutant library of 249 mutants with mutations that span the entire Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) genome was generated by transposition with EZ : : TN <KAN-2> and insertion with an apramycin resistance gene by a PCR-targeting method. This study also demonstrates the feasibility of generating deletions and site-specific mutations in the BRLF1 promoter on the EBV(More)
In this paper, we propose a distributed, reliable and low-power-consumed key-renewal scheme for wireless sensor networks. The proposed scheme is divided into parts: the server part and the sensor-node part. The server will produce an appropriate key-generation function (KGF) for key renewal on sensor nodes under a power consumption constraint. It divides(More)
Dysfunctional gap junctions caused by GJB2 (CX26) and GJB6 (CX30) mutations are implicated in nearly half of nonsyndromic hearing loss cases. A recent study identified a heterozygous mutation, c.119C>T (p.A40V), in the GJB6 gene of patients with nonsyndromic hearing loss. However, the functional role of the mutation in hearing loss remains unclear. In this(More)
The aim of the present study was to explore specific molecular markers that could lead to new insights into the identification of innovative treatments in oral cancer. The role of TGF-β1 (transforming growth factor-β1) and its predictive power in the prognosis of oral cancer has been identified. Human oral cancer cell lines, including SCC4 and SCC25, were(More)
BRCA1-associated protein 2 (BRAP2) is known to interact with the kinase suppressor of Ras 1 (KSR1), inhibiting the ERK signal transduction cascade. This study found that an Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) immediate-early protein, Rta, is a binding partner of BRAP2 in yeast and confirmed the binding in vitro by a glutathione S-transferase pull-down assay and in(More)
Dear Editor, In 2014, Taiwan experienced its largest dengue virus (DENV) outbreak since formal records were kept starting in 1981. 1 According to Taiwan's Centers for Disease Control (Taiwan CDC), 2 there were 15 732 reported DENV infections in 2014, including 15 492 indigenous and 240 imported cases. Among them, 15 043 cases (95.6%) occurred in Kaohsiung(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS To validate the effectiveness of a newly developed light-emitting diode (LED)-narrow band imaging (NBI) system for detecting early malignant tumors in the oral cavity. METHODS Six men (mean age, 51.5 years) with early oral mucosa lesions were screened using both the conventional white light and LED-NBI systems. RESULTS Small elevated or(More)
It is becoming increasingly evident that certain phytochemicals possess cancer chemopreventive properties. In this study, the antiproliferative activity of extracts from different parts of the jaboticaba (Myrciaria cauliflora) plant was evaluated for its effect on human oral carcinoma cell lines. The cytotoxicities of various plant extract concentrations(More)
