In Arabidopsis, root hair and non-hair cell fates are determined by a MYB-bHLH-WD40 transcriptional complex and are regulated by many internal and environmental cues. Brassinosteroids play important roles in regulating root hair specification by unknown mechanisms. Here, we systematically examined root hair phenotypes in brassinosteroid-related mutants, and(More)
Arabidopsis glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3)-like kinases have versatile functions in plant development and in responding to abiotic stresses. Although physiological evidence suggested a potential role of GSK3-like kinases in abscisic acid (ABA) signaling, the underlying molecular mechanism was largely unknown. Here we identified members of Snf1-related(More)
A plethora of driver convenience and safety automation systems are being introduced into production vehicles, such as electronic stability control, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping, and obstacle avoidance. Assuring the seamless and safe integration of each new automation function with existing control functions is a major challenge for vehicle(More)
Motivated by the challenge of developing control software provably meeting specifications for real world problems, this paper applies formal methods to adaptive cruise control (ACC). Starting from a Linear Temporal Logic specification for ACC, obtained by interpreting relevant ACC standards, we discuss in this paper two different control software synthesis(More)
The concept of Eco-driving is proposed to reduce the fuel consumption of vehicles while maintaining dynamic performance. MPC controller has been introduced to achieve comprehensive goals including safety, fuel consumption and comfort of driving. Yet the information of the surrounded vehicles and road conditions have not been fully utilized. An enhanced(More)
In an attempt to isolate and characterize peptides mimicking epitopes of metalloprotease and explore their immunological protection against Schistosoma japonicum (S. japonicum), polyclonal anti-metalloprotease sera was prepared to screen a 12-mer random peptide library to isolate phages binding specially to antisera IgG. Then, phage ELISA, animal(More)
Two Schistosoma japonicum vaccine candidate antigens Sj 31 and Sj 32, which have shown particular promise to induce protective immunity in mice, were used to immunize goats by using a DNA priming-protein boosting strategy in present work. DNA vaccine formulations of the two antigens (VRSj31 and VRSj32) were produced and injected intramuscularly twice at a(More)
Selfies have become increasingly fashionable in the social media era. People are willing to share their selfies in various social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Flicker. The popularity of selfie have caught researchers’ attention, especially psychologists. In computer vision and machine learning areas, little attention has been paid to this(More)
Peptides, bound to the tegument of live Schistosoma japonicum schistosomula, were differentially screened by phage display in vitro using three rounds of reverse absorption and bio-panning. Three M13 phage peptides were isolated and identified by determination of their recovery rate, immunohistochemical localization, immunoblot analysis, and their(More)
