Traditional literature on statistical quality control discusses separately multivariate control charts for independent processes and univariate control charts for autocorrelated processes. We extend univariate residual monitoring to the multivariate environment, and propose using vector autoregressive residuals (VAR) to monitor multivariate processes in the(More)
Inclusions containing Fused in Sarcoma (FUS) are found in familial and sporadic cases of the incurable progressive motor neuron disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and in a common form of dementia, frontotemporal dementia. Most disease-associated mutations are located in the C-terminal proline-tyrosine nuclear localization sequence (PY-NLS) of FUS and(More)
Forkhead box-containing protein, class O 3 a (FOXO3a), an Akt downstream target, plays an important role in peripheral nervous system. FOXO3a shares the ability to be inhibited and translocated from the nucleus on phosphorylation by proteins such as Akt/PKB in the PI3K signaling pathway. To elucidate the expression and possible function of FOXO3a in lesion(More)
BACKGROUND The rumen harbors a complex microbial ecosystem for efficient hydrolysis of plant polysaccharides which are the main constituent of the diet. Xylanase is crucial for hemicellulose hydrolysis and plays an important role in the plant cell wall degradation. Xylanases of ruminal strains were widely studied, but few studies have focused on their(More)
Previously, quality control and improvement researchers discussed multivariate control charts for independent processes and univariate control charts for autocorrelated processes separately. We combine the two topics and propose vector autoregressive (VAR) control charts for multivariate autocorrelated processes. In addition, we estimate AR(p) models(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the mechanism by which systemic dexmedetomidine exerts analgesic effect and examine effect of dexmedetomidine on hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-gated (HCN) channels currents. The experiments were performed on C57BL/6 J and HCN1 knockout mice. The analgesic effects of intraperitoneal dexmedetomidine(More)
