Two-dimensional (2-D) inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging has been widely used in target scattering diagnosis, modeling and target identification. A major shortcoming is that a 2-D ISAR image cannot provide information on the relative altitude of each scattering center on the target. In this paper, we present an interferometric inverse synthetic(More)
Resolution enhancement techniques in radar imaging have attracted considerable interest in recent years. In this work, we develop an iterative sidelobe apodization technique and investigate its applications to synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and inverse SAR (ISAR) image processing. A modified noninteger Nyquist spatially variant apodization (SVA) formulation(More)
BACKGROUND Germline mutations in LKB1 result in Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome characterized by intestinal hamartomas and increased incidence of epithelial cancers. LKB1 encodes a serine/threonine kinase that plays an important role in regulating energy metabolism through the AMPK/mTOR signaling pathway. In addition, LKB1 is homologous to PAR-4, a polarity protein(More)
The dimeric status of nitric oxide (NO)-sensitive soluble guanylyl cyclase (sGC) is obligatory for its catalyzing activity to synthesis the second messenger cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), which leads to vasodilatation. The present study was conducted to determine whether or not the dimerization of sGC is modulated by thiol-reducing agents and its(More)
The present study was to determine the role of the type I isoform of cGMP-dependent protein kinase (PKG I) and its downstream effector myosin phosphatase target subunit 1 (MYPT1) in the responses of different sized coronary arteries to nitrovasodilators. Relaxations of isolated porcine coronary arteries were determined by isometric tension recording(More)
