A Content Based Image Retrieval System is a computer system for browsing, searching and retrieving images from a large database of digital images .Most common methods of image retrieval utilize some method of adding meta data such as captioning, keywords or description to the images so that retrieval can be performed over the annotation words. Content Based(More)
In this paper, the delay-dependent robust resilient H∞ control is investigated for singular time-delay systems with norm-bounded parameter uncertainty. First, a new delaydependent bounded real lemma (BRL) for the nominal singular time-delay system is established. Then the problem of robust resilient H∞ control is solved via a resilient controller with(More)
OBJECTIVE Overproduction of reactive oxygen species such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) has been implicated in various cardiovascular diseases. However, mechanism(s) underlying coronary vascular dysfunction induced by H2O2 is unclear. We studied the effect of H2O2 on dilation of coronary arterioles to endothelium-dependent and endothelium-independent agonists.(More)
Since proteins perform their functions by interacting with one another and with other biomolecules, reconstructing a map of the protein-protein interactions of a cell, experimentally or computationally, is an important first step toward understanding cellular function and machinery of a proteome. Solely derived from the Gene Ontology (GO), we have defined(More)
In this article, we proposed an abnormal event detection method based on local features for traffic video surveillance. Firstly, foreground assumed to be moving is detected and affined with morphological operations. Then each foreground region's area, shape factors (ellipse eccentricity, width-height radio of outside rectangular, and etc.), and pixel moving(More)
BACKGROUND More than 90% of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) patients develop cardiomyopathy, and many die of cardiac failure. Despite tremendous progress in skeletal muscle gene therapy, few attempts have been made to treat cardiomyopathy. Microdystrophin genes are shown to correct skeletal muscle pathological lesions in the mdx mouse model for DMD. Here,(More)
For a long time, mastectomy was routinely used to establish local control. However women now have the option of breastconserving treatment followed by radiotherapy [4, 5]. The lymph nodes outside the axilla, including the internal mammary lymph nodes (IMLNs), are not usually resected in the operation [6, 7]. Recently sentinel lymph node biopsy has been(More)
Recent studies from our laboratory and others have shown that increases in cytoplasmic superoxide (O(2)(·-)) levels and Akt activation play a key role in agonist-stimulated NF-κB activation and cardiomyocyte hypertrophy in vitro. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that adenovirus (Ad)-mediated intramyocardial gene transfer of cytoplasmic superoxide(More)
