This work examines the relationship between 3-year pedestrian crash counts across Census tracts in Austin, Texas, and various land use, network, and demographic attributes, such as land use balance, residents' access to commercial land uses, sidewalk density, lane-mile densities (by roadway class), and population and employment densities (by type). The(More)
This paper develops an estimation strategy for and then applies a spatial autoregressive multinomial probit (SAR MNP) model to account for both spatial clustering and cross-alternative correlation. Estimation is achieved using Bayesian techniques with Gibbs and the generalized direct sampling (GDS). The model is applied to analyze land development decisions(More)
A number of studies have demonstrated that 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) can induce muscle contraction or relaxation response and enhance secretion in the gastrointestinal tract via a multiplicity of 5-HT receptor subtypes. In the present study, we investigated the pharmacological characterization of the 5-HT-induced contractile response in longitudinal smooth(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Flos Lonicerae Japonicae is a well-known herb of traditional Chinese medicine that has been used for heat-clearing, detoxification, anti-inflammation, throat pain and gastro-intestinal (GI) disorder. In order to verify the effect of Flos Lonicerae Japonicae on GI disorder, we investigated the prokinetic effect of GC-7101 on GI(More)
This study aims to determine the specificity of anti-human epidermal growth factor receptor antibody (anti-HER2) modified monomethoxy polyethylene glycol-chitosan (mPEG-CS) nanoparticles (anti-HER2/mPEG-CS NPs) in delivering small interfering RNA (siRNA) to the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) positive cancer cells. Physicochemical properties(More)
Installed wind power capacity keeps rapid increase, but wind power curtailment is becoming increasingly serious. Demand response is a good choice to promote the integration of wind power. This paper builds a two-stage unit commitment model incorporating demand response with the aim of promoting wind energy utilization. Firstly, a price determination model(More)
Ribosomal S6 kinase is a family of serine/threonine protein kinases involved in the regulation of cell viability. There are two subfamilies of ribosomal s6 kinase, (p90rsk, p70rsk). Especially, p90rsk is known to be an important downstream kinase of p44/42 MAPK. We investigated the role of p90rsk on ethanol-induced cell proliferation of HepG2 cells. HepG2(More)
This paper develops two new models and evaluates the impact of using different weight matrices on parameter estimates and inference in three distinct spatial specifications for discrete response. These specifications rely on a conventional, sparse, inverse-distance weight matrix for a spatial auto-regressive probit (SARP), a spatial autoregressive approach(More)
The electricity consumption of a charging station is obviously fluctuant. An energy storage system is an effective device to improve the load variation of the charging station. In order to give full play to energy storage system, this paper proposes a charging and discharging control strategy of the storage system considering multi-objective including(More)
