In this text, we consider the problem of fair scheduling in the downlink of Orthogonal Frequency Division (OFDM) systems. Based on be proportional fair scheduling algorithm proposed in the CDMAfHDR, we present three schemes to manage the parallel subcarriers in the OFDM system to utilize the time selectivity and frequency selectivity. Subcarriers in a slot(More)
The vast majority of travel takes place within cities. Recently, new data has become available which allows for the discovery of urban mobility patterns which differ from established results about long distance travel. Specifically, the latest evidence increasingly points to exponential trip length distributions, contrary to the scaling laws observed on(More)
People often have the demand to decide where to wait for a taxi in order to save their time. In this paper, to address this problem, we employ the non-homogeneous Poisson process (NHPP) to model the behavior of vacant taxis. According to the statistics of the parking time of vacant taxis on the roads and the number of the vacant taxis leaving the roads in(More)
The glycoside hydrolase of 7-β-xylosyltaxanes (designated as LXYL-P1-2) is encoded by Lxyl-p1-2 isolated from Lentinula edodes. This hydrolase specifically removes C-7 xylose from 7-β-xylosyltaxanes to form 7-β-hydroxyltaxanes, which can be used for the semi-synthesis of paclitaxel or its analogues. In our present study, we established a high-cell-density(More)
As a significant factor in urban planning, traffic forecasting and prediction of epidemics, modeling patterns of human mobility draws intensive attention from researchers for decades. Power-law distribution and its variations are observed from quite a few real-world human mobility datasets such as the movements of banking notes, trackings of cell phone(More)
Autophagy1 is a complex of adaptive cellular response that enhances cancer cell survival in the face of cellular stresses such as chemothery. Here we show that in human gallbladder carcinoma (GBC) cells lines, SGC-996 and GBC-SD, autophagy is induced by the DNA damaging agent 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). While in combination with the pre-treatment of chloroquine(More)
Salvia miltiorrhiza is one of the most popular traditional Chinese medicinal plants for treatment of coronary heart disease. Tanshinones are the main biological active compounds in S. miltiorrhiza. In this study, effects of exogenous methyl jasmonate (MJ) and nitric oxide (NO) on tanshinone production in S. miltiorrhiza hairy roots were investigated and the(More)
[2] A comprehensive 30330 arc-second resolution gridded soil characteristics data set of China has been developed for use in the land surface modeling. It includes physical and chemical attributes of soils derived from 8979 soil profiles and the Soil Map of China (1:1,000,000). We used the polygon linkage method to derive the spatial distribution of soil(More)
Salvia miltiorrhiza is one of the most popular traditional Chinese medicinal plants because of its excellent performance in treating coronary heart disease. Tanshinones, a group of active compounds in S. miltiorrhiza, are derived from two biosynthetic pathways: the mevalonate (MVA) pathway in the cytosol and the 2-C-methyl-D-erythritol-4-phosphate (MEP)(More)
