This paper studies an adaptive fuzzy control problem for a class of uncertain nonlinear systems in the pure-feedback form. Compared with the existing approaches, the two main advantages are that the proposed algorithm can be implemented by utilizing only one fuzzy logic systems (FLS) approximator and the robustness of the closed-loop system is improved. The(More)
Glucocorticoids have been implicated as pathophysiological mediators of obesity and insulin resistance and are regulated by 11beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11beta-HSD1). This enzyme regenerates active corticosterone from inactive 11-keto forms. To assess the role of 11beta-HSD1-mediated synthesis of active corticosterone in leptin-related(More)
Corticosterone-releasing hormone (CRH) and arginine vasopressin (AVP) are crucial components of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis that stimulates the release of adrenocorticotropic hormone from the pituitary and mediate the stress response. CRH binds to two subtypes of CRH receptors (CRH-R1 and CRH-R2) that are present in both central and peripheral(More)
In the present study, we demonstrate that prolonged treatment by trastuzumab induced resistance of NCI-N87 gastric cancer cells to trastuzumab. The resistant cells possessed typical characteristics of epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT)/cancer stem cells and acquired more invasive and metastatic potentials both in vitro and in vivo. Long term(More)
In this paper, a robust adaptive fuzzy control algorithm is proposed for a class of nonlinear multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems with unknown interconnected functions. In the controller design, the robust control terms are used to compensate the approximation errors, which can improve robustness of the systems. The developed control algorithm(More)
Interleukin-13 and interferon-γ are important effectors of T-helper cells. Interleukin-13 increases expression of the arachidonic acid-metabolizing enzyme, 15-lipoxygenase-1, in a variety of cell types. 15-lipoxygenase-1 is dramatically elevated in the airways of subjects with asthma. Studies in animals indicate that 15-lipoxygenase-1 contributes to the(More)
—This paper has designed and implement of a deep search engine oriented to the domain of popular science using subject search technique and the deep web integration technique. It has introduced the system architecture 、 the subject information gathering strategy as well as the key technologies it used, and our web page classifier has high precision with(More)
Long-term glucocorticoid exposure increases the risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Prereceptor activation of glucocorticoid availability in target tissue by 11β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11β-HSD1) coupled with hexose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (H6PDH) is an important mediator of the metabolic syndrome. We explored whether the tissue-specific(More)
BACKGROUND Increased adiposity in visceral depots is a crucial feature associated with glucocorticoid (GC) excess. The action of GCs in a target tissue is regulated by GC receptor (GR) and 11ß-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11ß-HSD1) coupled with hexose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (H6pdh). Glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK3β) is known to be a crucial(More)
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic intestinal inflammatory condition. Psychological stress has been postulated to affect the clinical symptoms and recurrence of IBD. The exact molecular mechanisms are not fully understood. In the present study, we demonstrate that psychological stress promotes neutrophil infiltration into colon tissues in dextran(More)
