Specular reflections and interreflections produce strong highlights in brightness images. These highlights can cause vision algorithms, such as, segmentation, shape from shading, binocular stereo, and motion detection to produce erroneous results. We present an algorithm f o r separating the specu-lar and d i f i s e components of reflection from images.(More)
There is increasing interest in the recovery of generalized cylinders (GCs) with curved spines. However, existing formulations of such GCs, for example those based on the Frenet-Serret frame or the tube model, suuer serious drawbacks: discontinuities, a lack of expressive power, \narrowing" in the plane normal to the spine, non-intuitive twisting behavior,(More)
The objectives of this study were to examine the expression levels of Homeobox A10 (HoxA10) in prostate cancer cells and to study the molecular mechanism of HoxA10-mediated regulation of prostate cancer cell growth and development. We investigated the effect of HoxA10 on cell proliferation by stably overexpressing or silencing HoxA10 in prostate cancer PC-3(More)
We have previously reported that the accumulation of IL-17-producing cells could mediate tumor protective immunity by promoting the migration of NK cells, T cells and dendritic cells in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) patients. However, there were no reports concerning the effect of IL-17A on tumor infiltrating B cells. In this study, we(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the significance of aberrant expression of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and the activated form of mTOR kinase, phosphorylated mTOR (pmTOR), in human stage IIIB colon cancer. The expression of mTOR and pmTOR was detected by immunohistochemistry in the tumor tissue of stage IIIB colon cancer patients.(More)
