—Modern vehicles will have strong requirements with regard to seamless mobility support in future cellular systems, in order to enable advanced cooperative driver assistance and infotainment systems that guarantee traffic safety and efficiency. In this work, we introduce street-specific handover parameters for vehicular terminals. In particular, we propose(More)
—The handover (HO) performance of a user in wireless cellular networks depends on HO parameters and context such as user position and velocity. We propose a novel HO optimization approach for high-mobility users aided by vehicle-mounted relay. By exploiting the learned or predicted context information obtained at the relay, we derive closed-form expressions(More)
—Due to its flexibility, cost-efficiency, and the ability to support mobility, wireless connectivity is seen today as a key enabler for a wide range of applications beyond classical mobile communications. A significant part of these applications depends on the capability of the wireless communication system to provide reliable connectivity. However, due to(More)
A new fungal strain, displaying strong toxic activity against brine shrimp larvae, was isolated from a deep sea sediment sample collected at a depth of 1300 m. The strain, designated as F00120, was identified as a member of the genus Penicillium on the basis of morphology and ITS sequence analysis. One new sesquiterpene quinone, named penicilliumin A (1),(More)
Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), a member of the herpesviridae, causes a variety of human viral diseases globally. Although a series of antiviral drugs are available for the treatment of infection and suppression of dissemination, HSV-1 remains highly prevalent worldwide. Therefore, the development of novel antiviral agents with different mechanisms of(More)
Recent studies have suggested that cancer cells contain subpopulations that can initiate tumor growth, self-renew, and maintain tumor cell growth. However, for esophageal cancer cells, the relationship between STAT3, microRNAs and cancer stem cells remains unclear. Serum-free culture was used to enrich esophageal cancer stem-like cells (ECSLC). Flow(More)
Compared to classical antibodies, camel heavy chain antibodies (HCAbs) are smaller in size due to lack of the light chain and the first constant domain of the heavy chain (CH1 region). The variable regions of HCAbs (VHHs) are more soluble and stable than that of conventional antibodies (VHs). Even with such simple structure, they are still functional in(More)
