Human osteoarthritis is a progressive disease of the joints characterized by degradation of articular cartilage. Although disease initiation may be multifactorial, the cartilage destruction appears to be a result of uncontrolled proteolytic extracellular matrix destruction. A major component of the cartilage extracellular matrix is aggrecan, a proteoglycan(More)
HTRA1 is a member of the High Temperature Requirement (HTRA1) family of serine proteases, which play a role in several biological and pathological processes. In part, HTRA1 regulation occurs by inhibiting the TGF-β signaling pathway, however the mechanism of inhibition has not been fully defined. Previous studies have shown that HTRA1 is expressed in a(More)
—In the field of space-time adaptive processing (STAP), spare recovery type STAP (SR-STAP) algorithms exploit formulation of the clutter estimation problem in terms of sparse representation of a small number of clutter positions among a much larger number of potential positions in the angle-Doppler plane, and provide an effective approach to suppress the(More)
Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) has become a lethal global threat. Insights into the immune regulation of MDR-TB are urgently needed for the development of new treatments; however, the T cell response to an MDR-TB infection in human remains unclear. In the present study, the proportion of Th1 and Th2 cell subsets and the level of related T cell(More)
We studied the evolution, genotypes, and the molecular clock of dengue virus serotype 1 (DENV-1), between 2001 and 2014 in Guangzhou, China. The analysis of the envelope (E) gene sequences of 67 DENV-1 strains isolated in Guangzhou, together with 58 representative sequences downloaded from NCBI, have shown shifts in viral genotypes. The genotype changed(More)
In this paper we will do the analysis of the gate engineering impact on tri state inverter performance for the application on SOC that is system on chip with the help of different high dielectric material. The high dielectric materials used in electronic circuits for preventing tunnelling effect which will increase the thermally generated current. In order(More)
—In this paper, novel space-time adaptive processing algorithms based on sparse recovery (SR-STAP) that utilize weighted l 1-norm penalty are proposed to further enforce the sparsity and approximate the original l 0-norm. Because the amplitudes of the clutter components from different snapshots are random variables, we design the corresponding weights(More)
