Gender is an important cue in social activities. In this correspondence, we present a study and analysis of gender classification based on human gait. Psychological experiments were carried out. These experiments showed that humans can recognize gender based on gait information, and that contributions of different body components vary. The prior knowledge(More)
This paper presents an automatic method to detect abnormal crowd density by using texture analysis and learning, which is very important for the intelligent surveillance system in public places. By using the perspective projection model, a series of multi-resolution image cells are generated to make better density estimation in the crowded scene. The cell(More)
We have shown previously that during branching morphogenesis of the mouse prostate gland, Bone morphogenetic protein 7 functions to restrict Notch1-positive progenitor cells to the tips of the prostate buds. Here, we employed prostate-specific murine bi-genic systems to investigate the effects of gain and loss of Notch function during prostate development.(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, our research group identified the non-deleted (functional) leucocyte immunoglobulin-like receptor A3 (LILRA3) as a new genetic risk for rheumatoid arthritis. OBJECTIVES To further investigate whether the functional LILRA3 is a new susceptibility factor for other autoimmune diseases-for example, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and(More)
Hormones, including estrogen and progesterone, and their receptors play an important role in the development and progression of ovarian carcinoma. Androgen, its receptor and coactivators have also been implicated in these processes. p44/Mep50/WDR77 was identified as a subunit of the methylosome complex and lately characterized as a steroid receptor(More)
Based on SMIC 0.18 μm 1.8v six-layer-metal CMOS process, we implement a 64-bit high speed pipelined floating point adder which satisfied IEEE 754 standard. After the critical path analysis of the pipelined structure, we custom design three macro modules in order to reduce critical path delay. After placement in datapath style and routing, we implement(More)
PURPOSE High-motility group AT-hook gene 1 (HMGA1) is a non-histone nuclear binding protein that is developmentally regulated. HMGA1 is significantly overexpressed in and associated with high grade and advance stage of prostate cancer (PC). The oncogenic role of HMGA1 is at least mediated through chromosomal instability and structural aberrations. However,(More)
Aberrant expression of MicroRNAs (miRNAs) has been implicated in several types of cancer. As a direct target gene of p53, miR-34a has been suggested to mediate the tumor suppressor function of p53. Ether à go-go 1 (Eag1) channel is overexpressed in a variety of cancers and plays important roles in cancer progression. However, the link between miR-34a and(More)
Cancer cells in hypoxia usually make adaptive changes in cellular metabolism, such as altered autophagy. This might be a cause of enhanced radioresistance in some types of cancer. In this study, we investigated hypoxia-responsive miRNAs in two prostate cancer cell lines (DU145 and PC3). This study firstly reported that hypoxia induces further downregulation(More)
