When sensors and actuators communicate with a remote controller over a multipurpose network, improved techniques are needed for state estimation, determination of closed-loop stability and controller synthesis. ABSTRACT | Networked control systems (NCSs) are spatially distributed systems for which the communication between sensors, actuators, and(More)
Distributed Control process process process controller node controller node controller node spatially distributed process to be controlled (e.g., autonomous vehicles) controller coordination supported by a communication network Goal: • minimize controller communication (stealth, bandwidth) • study the effect of non-ideal communication (delays, drops,(More)
It is still not clear which group of ammonia-oxidizing microorganisms plays the most important roles in nitrification in soils. Change in abundances and community compositions of ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) under long-term different nitrogen (N) fertilization rates were investigated in an acidic luvisols soil using(More)
To study the cytotoxicity induced by haematoporphyrin monomethyl ether (HMME)-mediated sonodynamic therapy (SDT) on C6 glioma cells. The potent photosensitizer HMME was used as the sensitizer. Rat C6 glioma cells were incubated with HMME (10 μg/mL) in the dark for 2 h and then subjected to ultrasound treatment at 1.0 MHz and 0.5 W/cm2 for 2 min. The growth(More)
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is a malignant disease insensitive to conventional treatments such as radiochemotherapy and immunotherapy. Search for new approaches to induce cancer cell apoptosis will improve the management of RCC. Here, we reported that zerumbone, a monosesquiterpine, shows anticancer effects on human RCC cells via induction of apoptosis in(More)
— An LTI estimation framework is proposed for networked control systems (NCS), in which local Kalman filter estimates are sent to the remote estimator. Both controlled and uncontrolled data communications are considered. For uncontrolled communication, minimum rate requirements are given for stochastic moment stability, which depend only on the least stable(More)
Candidiasis can be associated with the formation of biofilms on bioprosthetic surfaces. The intrinsic resistance of Candida albicans biofilms to the most commonly used antifungal agents has been demonstrated. Here we examined the effect of baicalein (BE) on C. albicans biofilm formation. Confocal laser scanning microscopy showed that C. albicans biofilm was(More)
Because of the widespread use of antibiotics in animal breeding, the agricultural application of animal manure can lead to the introduction of antibiotics, antibiotic-resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes to the soil and surrounding environment, which may pose a threat to public health. In this study, we investigated the status of(More)
Trehalose, a nonreducing disaccharide which accumulates dramatically during stationary phase or under oxidative stress, is well known as a stress protectant in several organisms. Here we investigated the putative correlation of trehalose with Cap1p, which is a basic region-leucine zipper (bZip) transcription factor participating in oxidative stress(More)
