Recent advances in depth sensing provide exciting opportunities for the development of new methods for human activity understanding. Yet, little work has been done in the area of hand gesture recognition which has many practical applications. In this paper we propose a real-time system for dynamic hand gesture recognition. It is fully automatic and robust(More)
Parkin is a RING-between-RING E3 ligase that functions in the covalent attachment of ubiquitin to specific substrates, and mutations in Parkin are linked to Parkinson's disease, cancer and mycobacterial infection. The RING-between-RING family of E3 ligases are suggested to function with a canonical RING domain and a catalytic cysteine residue usually(More)
Two recent genome-wide association studies have identified several novel type 2 diabetes susceptibility variants in intron 15 of the KCNQ1 gene. We aimed to evaluate the effects of the variants in KCNQ1 on type 2 diabetes and metabolic traits in the population of mainland China. Three candidate single nucleotide polymorphisms were genotyped in 1,912(More)
Due to the open nature of a sensor network, it is relatively easy for an adversary to eavesdrop and trace packet movement in the network in order to capture the receiver physically. After studying the adversary’s behavior patterns, we present countermeasures to this problem. We propose a locationprivacy routing protocol (LPR) that is easy to implement and(More)
A survey of bacterial wilt in China collected 286 strains of Ralstonia solanacearum from 17 plant species in 13 Chinese provinces to investigate genetic diversity using the biovar (bv.) and phylotype classification schemes. A phylotype-specific multiplex-PCR showed that 198 isolates belonged to phylotype I (bv. 3, 4 and 5) and 68 to phylotype II (bv. 2 and(More)
Three cDNAs ( MdSPDS1, 2a and2b) encoding spermidine synthase (SPDS), a key enzyme in the polyamine biosynthesis, have been cloned from apple [ Malus sylvestris (L.) Mill. var. domestica (Borkh.) Mansf.]. The deduced amino acid sequences of their protein products share 76–83% identity with SPDSs of other higher plants. A comparison of the sequences of the(More)
Vegetative growth and reproductive growth strongly competes with each other during panicle development in litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.). We herein investigated the roles of hydrogen peroxide and nitric oxide in the competition between growth of rudimentary leaves and panicle development. The results show that the chilling-induced flowering increased H2O2(More)
Let p be a prime with p≡3 (mod 4), let n be an odd natural number and let . Consider the crosscorrelation funtion C d (t)=∑ i =1 pn−1 ζ ai − adi−t where ζ≠1 is a complex p-th root of unity and (a i ) is a maximal linear shift register sequence. In 7 the bound has been computed for p = 3. In this note we generalize this to for p≥ 3. Furthermore we giv an(More)
