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)
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)
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)
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)
