Recently, Begel et al. found that one of the most important questions software developers ask is "what parts of software are used/loved by users." User reviews provide an effective channel to address this question. However, most existing review summarization tools treat reviews as bags-of-words (i.e., mixed review categories) and are limited to extract(More)
Developers often wonder how to implement a certain functionality (e.g., how to parse XML files) using APIs. Obtaining an API usage sequence based on an API-related natural language query is very helpful in this regard. Given a query, existing approaches utilize information retrieval models to search for matching API sequences. These approaches treat queries(More)
Trimethylamine (TMA) N-oxide (TMAO), a gut-microbiota-dependent metabolite, both enhances atherosclerosis in animal models and is associated with cardiovascular risks in clinical studies. Here, we investigate the impact of targeted inhibition of the first step in TMAO generation, commensal microbial TMA production, on diet-induced atherosclerosis. A(More)
Traditional video coding and streaming algorithms do not been fully utilized in content information of video in bit allocation and adaptation. This paper proposes a content-based video streaming method based on visual attention model to better utilize network bandwidth and achieve better subjective video quality. First, visual attention model is exploited(More)
Understanding population history and genetic structure are key drivers of ecological research. Here, we studied two highly fragmented and isolated populations (Xiaoxiangling and Daxiangling) of giant pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) at the extreme southwestern edge of their distribution. This area also contains the Dadu River, national road 108 and various(More)
The present study aimed to identify microRNA (miRNA) expression profiles associated with multidrug resistance (MDR) in gastric carcinoma. A 5‑fluorouracil (5‑Fu)‑induced MDR gastric cancer cell line was selected and miRNA expression profiling of the cell line was conducted following exposure to 5‑Fu. The miRNA expression profiles between the parental and(More)
Giant pandas (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) are an iconic conservation species, but despite significant research effort, do we understand what they really need? Estimating and mapping suitable habitat play a critical role in conservation planning and policy. But if assumptions about ecological needs are wrong, maps with misidentified suitable habitat will(More)
Recent studies have indicated that high-density lipoproteins (HDLs) and their major structural protein, apolipoprotein A1 (apoA1), recovered from human atheroma are dysfunctional and are extensively oxidized by myeloperoxidase (MPO). In vitro oxidation of either apoA1 or HDL particles by MPO impairs their cholesterol acceptor function. Here, using phage(More)
