Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) have a larger battery and can replace a certain amount of conventional fossil fuels with grid electricity, which differs from the traditional hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). The application of the onboard electrical energy significantly influences the energy utilization efficiency and thus impacts the fuel economy.(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of non-protein-coding small RNAs with the capacity to regulate fundamental biological processes essential for cancer initiation and progression. In the present study, we analyzed miRNA expression levels between multidrug-resistant gastric carcinoma cell line SGC7901/ADR and its parent cell line SGC7901 using a miRNA(More)
OBJECT The object of this study was to assess the detailed anatomical features and vascular relationships of the cisternal segment of the oculomotor nerve, and to assess the utility of MR imaging in oculomotor nerve palsy caused by abnormal compression related to arteries and tumors. METHODS The anatomy of the oculomotor nerve was depicted using 3D(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate a possible mechanism responsible for anti-apoptotic effects of melatonin and provide theoretical evidences for clinical therapy. METHODS Ischemia-reperfusion mediated neuronal cell injury model was constructed in cerebellar granule neurons (CGNs) by deprivation of glucose, serum and oxygen in media. After ischemia, melatonin was(More)
To explore the problems associated with applying dynamic programming (DP) in the energy management strategies of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), a plug-in hybrid bus powertrain is introduced and its dynamic control model is constructed. The numerical issues, including the discretization resolution of the relevant variables and the boundary issue(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the feasibility of dose-modulated retrospective ECG-gated thoracoabdominal aorta CT angiography (CTA) assessing abdominal aortic intimal flap motion and investigate the motion characteristics of intimal flap in acute aortic dissection (AAD). MATERIALS AND METHODS 49 patients who had thoracoabdominal aorta retrospective ECG-gated CTA(More)
Infrasound is a sound wave with vibration frequency of less than 20 Hz, characterized by a longer wavelength, weak attenuating and strong penetration power, etc. Since the inherent frequencies of the human body and the organs are within infrasound vibration range, so infrasound has a stronger effect on the human body. The study found that the process of(More)
Despite considerable advances in chemotherapy, radiotherapy, target therapy, and biological therapy, the prognosis for those with resected non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has not substantially improved. It was recently reported that two receptors, Notch-1 and c-Met, correlate directly or indirectly with the initiation and development of malignant tumors,(More)
PURPOSE To compare the image quality and diagnostic accuracy between sinogram affirmed iterative reconstruction (SAFIRE) algorithm and filtered back projection (FBP) reconstruction algorithm at 70 kVp-tube-voltage DSCT angiography in children with congenital heart disease (CHD). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight patients (mean age: 13 months; range: 2-48(More)
Despite considerable advances in gastrectomy and chemotherapy, the prognosis of gastric cancer (GC) has not noticeably improved due to lymph node or distant metastases. P21-activated serine/threonine kinase 4 (Pak4) plays an important role in cell morphology and cytoskeletal reorganization—both prerequisite steps for cell migration. However, it is still(More)
