Chronic cerebral hypoperfusion is associated with cognitive decline in aging and age-related neurodegenerative disease. Epigenetic mechanisms are involved in the maintenance of long-term hypoxia-adapted cellular phenotypes. In the present study, the epigenetic signatures such as DNA methylation and histone acetylation, as well as S-adenosylmethionine (SAM)(More)
Due to the cooperation diversity, Coordinated MultiPoint (CoMP) transmission may potentially improve energy efficiency of cellular networks. The main purpose of this paper is to analyze this potential. By employing CoMP, there are two schemes to improve energy efficiency; one is to decrease the transmission power of base stations (CDTP) without changing(More)
Although primary mucin-producing adenocarcinoma of the lung is uncommon, each subtype has distinct clinical, pathological, molecular, and prognostic characteristics. This study aimed to determine correlations between clinical and pathological features and genetic phenotypes with the prognosis. We immunohistochemically examined the protein levels of thyroid(More)
M × N wavelength selective switch (WSS) is a core component to address wavelength conflict in an optical switching node. In this paper, we design and experimentally demonstrate a performance enhanced 3 × 4 tunable bandwidth WSS (TBWSS) with tunable attenuation across the full C-band, and using compact spatial light paths. Wavelength channels from any input(More)
Cellular relay networks prove to be a cost-effective approach that offers significant performance benefits in coverage extension, cell-edge throughput enhancement and increased spectral efficiency. Radio resource management for cellular relay networks, where the network topology is highly dynamic, is particularly challenging. The highly dynamic topology may(More)
The cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase (PDE) plays an important role in regulating the levels of second messenger molecules cAMP and cGMP. Various PDE inhibitors have been successfully developed into drugs for targeted diseases. In addition, PDE inhibitors can also be found in different foods and natural medicines. In this study, ultrafiltration liquid(More)
Tuberculous pleurisy is one of the most common types of extrapulmonary tuberculosis, but its diagnosis remains difficult. In this study, we report for the first time on the detection of cell-free Mycobacterium tuberculosis DNA in pleural effusion and an evaluation of a newly developed molecular assay for the detection of cell-free Mycobacterium tuberculosis(More)
The impact of gene-environment interaction on diabetes remains largely unknown. We aimed to investigate whether interaction between glucose metabolizing genes and lifestyle factors are associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). METHODS- Interactions between genotypes of 4 glucose metabolizing genes (MTNR1B, KCNQ1, KLF14, and GCKR) and lifestyle(More)
In this paper, the complementary ring type metamaterial unit is theoretically analyzed by using the spectral domain approach. A terahertz bandpass filter is designed, which consists of triple-layer complementary ring metamaterial. The center frequency of the filter is 338GHz, the transmission rate in pass band reaches 97%, the maximum insertion loss in pass(More)
