Cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) systems have the potential to increase traffic throughput by allowing smaller headway between vehicles and moving vehicles safely in a platoon at a harmonized speed. CACC systems have been attracting significant attention from both academia and industry since connectivity between vehicles will become mandatory for(More)
Dry rice seeds (Oryza sativa, subspecies indica) were sandwiched between nuclear track detectors, aboard the Chinese spaceship Shenzhou-3 for seven days. The seeds were recovered and the genomic polymorphism in 201 plants developed from these seeds was studied using random amplified polymorphism DNA analysis. When compared with plants from ground-based(More)
Sertoli cells (SCs) possess inherent immunosuppressive properties and are major contributors to the immunoprivileged status of mammalian testis. SCs have been reported to inhibit the activation of B cells, T cells and natural killer cells but not dendritic cells (DCs). Herein, we present evidence that co-culture with SCs results in a persistent state of DC(More)
Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs)-based therapy has emerged as a desirable modality for the treatment of tissue injury with promising therapeutic effects; however, low survival rate of transplanted cells due to harsh microenvironment with hypoxia and oxidative stress results in hampered therapeutic benefits of this therapy. Curcumin, a natural(More)
Autologous adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) can protect fat grafts in cell-assisted lipotransfer (CAL). However, diabetes alters the intrinsic properties of ADSCs and impairs their function so that they lack these protective effects. We investigate whether allogeneic ADSCs from healthy donors could protect fat grafts in immunocompetent diabetic rats.(More)
