We present a technique that simulates wet garments for virtual humans with realistic folds and wrinkles. Our approach combines three new models to allow realistic simulation of wet garments: (1) a simplified saturation model that modifies the masses, (2) a nonlinear friction model derived from previously reported, real-world measurements, and (3) a wrinkle(More)
The amyloid precursor like protein-1 (APLP1) belongs to the amyloid precursor protein family that also includes the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and the amyloid precursor like protein-2 (APLP2). Though the three proteins share similar structures and undergo the same cleavage processing by α-, β- and γ-secretases, APLP1 shows divergent subcellular(More)
We introduce a non-uniform composition that integrates multiple rendering styles in a picture driven by an importance map. This map, either issued from saliency estimation or designed by a user, is introduced both in the creation of the multiple styles and in the final composition. Our approach accommodates a variety of stylization techniques, such as color(More)
The Hippo and c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) pathway both regulate growth and contribute to tumorigenesis when dysregulated. Whereas the Hippo pathway acts via the transcription coactivator Yki/YAP to regulate target gene expression, JNK signaling, triggered by various modulators including Rho GTPases, activates the transcription factors Jun and Fos. Here,(More)
Signalling networks that control the life or death of a cell are of central interest in modern biology. While the defined roles of the c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) pathway in regulating cell death have been well-established, additional factors that modulate JNK-mediated cell death have yet to be fully elucidated. To identify novel regulators of(More)
Interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinases (IRAKs) are crucial mediators of the IL-1R/TLR signaling pathways that regulate the immune and inflammation response in mammals. Recent studies also suggest a critical role of IRAKs in tumor development, though the underlying mechanism remains elusive. Pelle is the sole Drosophila IRAK homolog implicated in the(More)
In the massive multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) downlink, traditional centralized beamforming (or precoding), such as zero-forcing (ZF), entails excessive complexity for the computing hardware, and generates raw baseband data rates that cannot be supported with current interconnect technology and chip I/O interfaces. In this paper, we(More)
Conventional centralized data detection algorithms for massive multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MUMIMO) systems, such as minimum mean square error (MMSE) equalization, result in excessively high raw baseband data rates and computing complexity at the centralized processing unit. Hence, practical base-station (BS) designs for massive MUMIMO that(More)
