—The world population is in the midst of a unique and irreversible process of aging. Fall, which is one of the major health threats and obstacles to independent living of elders, will aggravate the global pressure in elders' health care and injury rescue. Thus, automatic fall detection is highly in need. Current proposed fall detection systems either need(More)
BACKGROUND Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) is an important forage crop in North America owing to its high biomass production, perennial nature and ability to fix nitrogen. Feruloyl esterase (EC 3.1.1.73) hydrolyzes ester linkages in plant cell walls and has the potential to further improve alfalfa as biomass for biofuel production. RESULTS In this study, faeB(More)
Cisplatin is a well-known chemotherapeutic agent, it could cause DNA damage and induce apoptotic cell death, but the cisplatin resistance also appears, it's important to reveal the mechanisms of cisplatin resistance [1]. URGCP/URG4 is overexpressed in various tumors and plays critical role during tumor development. We found URGCP/URG4 was upregulated in(More)
The essence of tissue engineering is the fabrication of autologous cells or induced stem cells in naturally derived or synthetic scaffolds to form specific tissues. Polymer is thought as an appealing source of cell-seeded scaffold owing to the diversity of its physicochemical property and can be electrospun into nano-size to mimic natural structure. Poly(More)
BACKGROUND Efficient conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to fermentable sugars requires the synergistic action of multiple enzymes; consequently enzyme mixtures must be properly formulated for effective hydrolysis. The nature of an optimal enzyme blends depends on the type of pretreatment employed as well the characteristics of the substrate. In this(More)
We present a novel approach to structure from motion that can deal with missing data and outliers with an affine camera. We model the corruptions as sparse error. Therefore the structure from motion problem is reduced to the problem of recovering a low-rank matrix from corrupted observations. We first decompose the matrix of trajectories of features into(More)
As ubiquitous environments become increasingly commonplace with newer sensors and forms of computing devices (e.g. wearables, digital tabletops), researchers have continued to design and implement novel interaction possibilities. However, as the number of sensors and devices continues to rise, researchers still face numerous instrumentation, implementation(More)
The effects of different levels of dietary crude protein on the development, antioxidant enzymatic activity, and total midgut protease activity of honey bees were investigated in the study. A total of 30 colonies of bees with sister queens were used in the test. Dietary treatments were pure rape pollen (Control) and pollen substitutes (PS) with crude(More)
