The trees, respectively unicyclic graphs, on n vertices with the smallest Laplacian permanent are studied. In this paper, by edge-grafting transformations, the n-vertex trees of given bipartition having the second and third smallest Laplacian permanent are identified. Similarly, the n-vertex bipartite unicyclic graphs of given bipartition having the first,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the mandibular position when speaking with the intercuspal position and to check the stability of phonetics when determining the horizontal jaw relation in healthy adults. METHODS A total of 19 healthy volunteers were recruited. Seven Chinese letters, namely, /xi/, /er/, /yi/, /ci/, /mi/, /ni/, and /ri/, were(More)
Dear Editor, Programmed cell death has an essential role in development and homeostasis of mammalians. Fas-associated death domain (FADD) interacts with the death domain of receptors, leading to the activation of caspase-8, which subsequently activates several downstream caspases and finally executes apoptosis. 1 Ablation of Caspase-8 or Fadd resulted in(More)
