In pregnancy, trophoblast invasion and uterine spiral artery remodelling are important for lowering maternal vascular resistance and increasing uteroplacental blood flow. Impaired spiral artery remodelling has been implicated in pre-eclampsia, a major complication of pregnancy, for a long time but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Corin (also known(More)
Using conventional resource allocation algorithms in OFDM systems, each user can employ different Modulation and Coding Scheme (MCS) on allocated subcarriers to achieve good throughput. However, in the downlink transmission of LTE systems, the minimum allocation unit for one user is Scheduling Block (SB) and all SB assigned to one user must adopt the same(More)
Corin is a transmembrane serine protease identified in the heart, where it converts natriuretic peptides from inactive precursors to mature active forms. Studies in animal models and patients with hypertension and heart disease demonstrate that corin is critical in maintaining normal blood pressure and cardiac function. Like many proteolytic enzymes, corin(More)
BACKGROUND Corin is a transmembrane protease that processes natriuretic peptides in the heart. Like many membrane proteins, corin is shed from the cell surface. METHODS AND RESULTS In this study, we obtained plasma samples from healthy controls and patients with heart failure (HF) and acute myocardial infarction. Soluble corin levels in plasma were(More)
The broadband orthogonal frequency and code division multiplexing (OFCDM) system with two-dimensional spreading (time and frequency domain spreading) is becoming a very attractive technique for high-rate data transmission in future wireless communication systems. In this paper, a quasianalytical study is presented on the downlink performance of the OFCDM(More)
