OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to develop a self-diagnostic scale that could distinguish smartphone addicts based on the Korean self-diagnostic program for Internet addiction (K-scale) and the smartphone's own features. In addition, the reliability and validity of the smartphone addiction scale (SAS) was demonstrated. METHODS A total of 197(More)
14-3-3γ, an isoform of the 14-3-3 protein family, was proved to be a positive regulator of mTOR pathway. Here, we analyzed the function of 14-3-3γ in protein synthesis using bovine mammary epithelial cells (BMECs). We found that 14-3-3γ interacted with eIF1AX and RPS7 by 14-3-3γ coimmunoprecipitation (CoIP) and matrix-assisted laser(More)
Pressure pain thresholds (PPTs) have been shown to be useful measures of mechanical pain sensitivity in deep tissues. However, clinical methods for measuring mechanical allodynia or hyperalgesia in teeth have not been reported. The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of PPTs in periodontal ligament of healthy Chinese participants. Twenty healthy(More)
Floating car data (FCD) application is an urban sensing application, which collects the status (position, velocity and heading) of vehicles to feed a traffic management server and estimate the travel time of vehicles, and can be carried by long term evolution (LTE) or a heterogeneous network composed by LTE and vehicular ad hoc network (VANET). However,(More)
Introducing relay node to Device-to-Device (D2D) technology can extend the cell coverage range and improve the system performance, and the relay selection is a key point of relay-assisted D2D communication. In this paper, the relay selection problem is discussed for D2D communication underlaying cellular network. We propose a two-stages relay selection and(More)
Combining Turbo-codes and high order modulation is a simple but effective way to improve the bandwidth efficiency. Since the Turbo decoder requires binary soft decisions as the input information, the demodulator has to provide bit level soft information (LLR) to it. In this paper, a novel simplified algorithm to calculate LLR is developed, which will(More)
