Hierarchical semantic segmentation of image scene with object labeling

Semantic segmentation of an image scene provides semantic information of image regions while less information of objects. In this paper, we propose a method of hierarchical semantic segmentation, including scene level and object level, which aims at labeling both scene regions and objects in an image. In the scene level, we use a feature-based MRF model to recognize the scene...

Omeprazole Alleviates Aristolochia manshuriensis Kom-Induced Acute Nephrotoxicity

Aristolochia manshuriensis Kom (AMK) is a member of the Aristolochiaceae family and is a well-known cause of aristolochic acid (AA) nephropathy. In this study, we investigated the potential of omeprazole (OM) to alleviate AMK-induced nephrotoxicity. We found that OM reduced mouse mortality caused by AMK and attenuated AMK-induced acute nephrotoxicity in rats. OM enhanced hepatic...

The Zinc Finger Protein Zfr1p Is Localized Specifically to Conjugation Junction and Required for Sexual Development in Tetrahymena thermophila

Conjugation in Tetrahymena thermophila involves a developmental program consisting of three prezygotic nuclear divisions, pronuclear exchange and fusion, and postzygotic and exconjugant stages. The conjugation junction structure appears during the initiation of conjugation development, and disappears during the exconjugant stage. Many structural and functional proteins are...

Transcriptional regulation of the human, porcine and bovine OCTN2 gene by PPAR? via a conserved PPRE located in intron 1

Background The novel organic cation transporter 2 (OCTN2) is the physiologically most important carnitine transporter in tissues and is responsible for carnitine absorption in the intestine, carnitine reabsorption in the kidney and distribution of carnitine between tissues. Genetic studies clearly demonstrated that the mouse OCTN2 gene is directly regulated by peroxisome...
