The protein expressions of neurotrophic factors can be enhanced by low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) stimulation in the brain. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the protective effect of LIPUS stimulation against aluminum-induced cerebral damage in Alzheimer's disease rat model. LIPUS was administered 7 days before each aluminum chloride(More)
BACKGROUND Astrocytes play an important role in the growth and survival of developing neurons by secreting neurotrophic factors. OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to investigate how low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) stimulation directly affects brain astrocyte function. METHODS Here, we report that LIPUS stimulation increased protein levels of(More)
A chip multiprocessor (CMP) consists of several cores which can execute tasks independently. Due to the budget and chip area limit, last level cache is usually shared among cores. If tasks running on different cores access the shared cache intensively and concurrently, it may lead to high cache miss rate and significant performance degradation. A(More)
We examined the effect of 2',5'-dihydroxychalcone on connexin43 (Cx43) expression and gap-junctional communication in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC). The result showed that expression of Cx43 is rapidly reduced by 2',5'-dihydroxychalcone in a dose-dependent manner, Concomitantly, the communication function, determined by fluorescence(More)
Statistical effective energy function (SEEF) is derived from the statistical analysis of the database of known protein structures. Dehouck–Gilis–Rooman (DGR) group has recently created a new generation of SEEF in which the additivity of the energy terms was manifested by decomposing the total folding free energy into a sum of lower order terms. We have(More)
This paper presents Robotic Application Resource Management Services (RARMS), a collection of tools for integrating reusable software components of a wide class of robotic applications on Microsoft Windows, a general-purpose, commodity operating system. RARMS includes (1) a resource allocation tool called RAAPT-HV for partitioning the available processors(More)
In a wireless sensor network (WSN), retransmission and acknowledgement (ACK) are required to make reliable packet delivery. In this paper, a Network Coding based Power Efficient Routing (NCPER) algorithm integrated with multi-path routing algorithms is proposed to eliminate retransmission and ACK, which guarantees that the receiving node can decode the(More)
