Good evidence suggest roles of galectins in cancer, immunity and inflammation, and development, but a unifying picture of their biological function is lacking. Instead galectins appear to have a particularly diverse, bewildering but intriguing array of activities both inside and outside cells—“clear truths and mysteries are inextricably twined”. Fortunately(More)
A strategy for generating potential galectin inhibitors was devised based on derivatization at the C-3' atom in 3'-amino-N-acetyllactosamine by using structural knowledge of the galectin carbohydrate recognition site. A collection of 12 compounds was prepared by N-acylations or N-sulfonylations. Hydrophobic tagging of the O-3 atom in the N-acetylglucosamine(More)
Galectin-1 (Gal-1) and galectin-3 (Gal-3) exhibit profound but unique immunomodulatory activities in animals but their molecular mechanisms are incompletely understood. Early studies suggested that Gal-1 inhibits leukocyte function by inducing apoptotic cell death and removal, but recent studies show that some galectins induce exposure of the common death(More)
This paper presents an enhanced Kalman filter, including the multi-track gate method and the autoregression (AR) model, for underwater bearing-only multi-target tracking. The single-double side constant false alarm rate (SD-CFAR) method is firstly proposed for crossing target detection, and multi-track gate method and autoregression (AR) model is then used(More)
