Learning group patterns for ground-based cloud classification in wireless sensor networks

Cloud classification of ground-based images is a challenging task due to extreme variations under different atmospheric conditions. With the development of wireless sensor networks (WSN), it provides the possibility to understand and classify clouds more accurately. Recent research has focused on extracting discriminative cloud image features in WSN, which plays a crucial role in...

GMVP: gradient magnitude and variance pooling-based image quality assessment in sensor networks

In this paper, we focus on image quality assessment (IQA) in sensor networks and propose a novel method named gradient magnitude and variance pooling (GMVP). The proposed GMVP follows a two-step framework. In this first step, we utilize gradient magnitude to compute the local quality, which is efficient and responsive to degeneration when the images are transmitted by sensor...

miRNA Expression Profiles of HPV-Infected Patients with Cervical Cancer in the Uyghur Population in China

The study aimed to investigate the state of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in patients with cervical cancer in the Uyghur population in China and to identify miRNA as biomarker for cervical cancer and HPV infection. We also performed genotyping to determine the variation in the types of HPV. Using microRNA (miRNA) microarray technology, differential miRNA expression between...

Mutation Analysis of 16 Mucolipidosis II and III Alpha/Beta Chinese Children Revealed Genotype-Phenotype Correlations

Mucolipidosis II and III alpha/beta are autosomal recessive diseases caused by mutations in the GNPTAB gene which encodes the α and β subunits of the N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphotransferase. Clinically, mucolipidosis II (MLII) is characterized by severe developmental delay, coarse facial features, skeletal deformities, and other systemic involvement. In contrast, MLIII alpha...

The possibility of coexistence and co-development in language competition: ecology–society computational model and simulation

Language is characterized by both ecological properties and social properties, and competition is the basic form of language evolution. The rise and decline of one language is a result of competition between languages. Moreover, this rise and decline directly influences the diversity of human culture. Mathematics and computer modeling for language competition has been a popular...

Seco-sativene and Seco-longifolene Sesquiterpenoids from Cultures of Endophytic Fungus Bipolaris eleusines

Two new seco-sativene sesquiterpenoids, bipolenins D (1) and E (2), a new seco-longifolene sesquiterpenoid, bipolenin F (3), together with three known analogues (4–6), were obtained from cultures of endophytic fungus Bipolaris eleusines. Their structures were established by MS and NMR data. Compounds 1–6 showed no activity to five human cancer cell lines.

Monoacylglycerol lipase promotes progression of hepatocellular carcinoma via NF-κB-mediated epithelial-mesenchymal transition

Background Monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL), a critical lipolytic enzyme, has emerged as a key regulator of tumor progression, yet its biological function and clinical significance in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is still unknown. Methods In this study, we used a tissue microarray containing samples from 170 HCC patients to evaluate the expression of MAGL and its correlation with...

Follow-up and evaluation of the pregnancy outcome in women of reproductive age with Graves’ disease after 131Iodine treatment

The aims of the present study were to analyze the outcomes of pregnancy, after 131I treatment, in patients of reproductive age with Graves’ hyperthyroidism and to investigate the effects, if any, of the 131I treatment on the mothers and newborns. From 2009 to 2014, 257 pregnant female patients with Graves’ hyperthyroidism in the outpatients at the Department of Nuclear Medicine...

Numerical Modeling and Experimental Verification of Residual Stress in Autogenous Laser Welding of High-Strength Steel

A three-dimensional finite element (FE) model was developed to numerically calculate the temperature field and residual-stress field in the autogenous laser welding process. The grid independence of the FE model was verified to eliminate the variation of the heat flux between adjacent elements. A cut-off temperature method with combination of the tensile testing was used to...

Coverage of different health insurance programs and medical costs associated with chronic hepatitis C infection in mainland China: a cross-sectional survey in 20 provinces

Background Hepatitis C virus (HCV) imposes a considerable disease burden in China, with at least 10 million people chronically infected. Little is known about the financial impact of the HCV epidemic, nor about the extent to which various forms of insurance are providing HCV patients with financial protection. A cross-sectional multi-site study was conducted to acquire data that...

Change of surface cover greenness in China between 2000 and 2010

Surface greenness reflects the situation of vegetation cover. Vegetation index calculated from the Red and Near Infrared bands of remote sensing images, whose values indicate the level of photosynthetic activity, is monotonically related to surface greenness when vegetation canopy does not fully cover the background soil. Especially for desert regions, vegetation index is...
