3D Reconstruction from a Single Still Image Based on Monocular Vision of an Uncalibrated Camera

we propose a framework of combining Machine Learning with Dynamic Optimization for reconstructing scene in 3D automatically from a single still image of unstructured outdoor environment based on monocular vision of an uncalibrated camera. After segmenting image first time, a kind of searching tree strategy based on Bayes rule is used to identify the hierarchy of all areas on...

Correction to: Simultaneous Modification of Alumina and MgO·Al2O3 Inclusions by Calcium Treatment During Electroslag Remelting of Stainless Tool Steel

In Table III, the correct value of first-order interaction parameter of Cr on S should be −0.0105, rather than 0.0105. It should be stressed that the thermodynamic calculation associated with this parameter was performed using \( e_{\text{S}}^{\text{Cr}} \) = − 0.0105 in the published article. Thus, all calculated results associated with this parameter are correct in this article.

Quasi-Spherical Brookite TiO2 Nanostructures Synthesized Using Solvothermal Method in the Presence of Oxalic Acid

Brookite TiO2, the latest TiO2 photocatalyst, promises to be an interesting candidate for photocatalytic applications because of its unique physical and chemical properties. In this study, pure-phase brookite TiO2 with a quasi-spherical nanostructure was successfully synthesized via a solvothermal method using tetrabutyl titanate (Ti(OC4H9)4, TBOT) as the Ti source in the...

A novel protein derived from lamprey supraneural body tissue with efficient cytocidal actions against tumor cells

In previous research, we found that cell secretion from the adult lamprey supraneural body tissues possesses cytocidal activity against tumor cells, but the protein with cytocidal activity was unidentified. A novel lamprey immune protein (LIP) as defense molecule was first purified and identified in jawless vertebrates (cyclostomes) using hydroxyapatite column and Q Sepharose...

Arabidopsis ABI5 plays a role in regulating ROS homeostasis by activating CATALASE 1 transcription in seed germination

It has been known that ABA INSENSITIVE 5 (ABI5) plays a vital role in regulating seed germination. In the present study, we showed that inhibition of the catalase activity with 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole (3-AT) inhibits seed germination of Col-0, abi5 mutants and ABI5-overexpression transgenic lines. Compared with Col-0, the seeds of abi5 mutants showed more sensitive to 3-AT during...

Proteomic analysis of maize grain development using iTRAQ reveals temporal programs of diverse metabolic processes

Background Grain development in maize is an essential process in the plant’s life cycle and is vital for use of the plant as a crop for animals and humans. However, little is known regarding the protein regulatory networks that control grain development. Here, isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantification (iTRAQ) technology was used to analyze temporal changes in protein...

Sox9 transcriptionally regulates Wnt signaling in intestinal epithelial stem cells in hypomethylated crypts in the diabetic state

Background Distinctive structures called crypts harbor intestinal epithelial stem cells (IESCs) which generate progenitor and terminally differentiated cells in the intestinal epithelium. Mammalian IESCs and their daughter cells require the participation of DNA methylation and the transcription factor Sox9 for proliferation and differentiation. However, the association between...

Hollow and hierarchical Na2Li2Ti6O14 microspheres with high electrochemical performance as anode material for lithium-ion battery

Relying on a solvent thermal method, spherical Na2Li2Ti6O14 was synthesized. All samples prepared by this method are hollow and hierarchical structures with the size of about 2–3 μm, which are assembled by many primary nanoparticles (~300 nm). Particle morphology analysis shows that with the increase of temperature, the porosity increases and the hollow structure becomes more...

Overexpression of an Arabidopsis cysteine-rich receptor-like protein kinase, CRK5, enhances abscisic acid sensitivity and confers drought tolerance

Receptor-like kinases (RLKs) have been reported to regulate many developmental and defense process, but only a few members have been functionally characterized. In the present study, our observations suggest that one of the RLKs, a membrane-localized cysteine-rich receptor-like protein kinase, CRK5, is involved in abscisic acid (ABA) signaling in Arabidopsis thaliana...

Remote Ischemic Postconditioning Ameliorates the Mesenchymal Stem Cells Engraftment in Reperfused Myocardium

Objectives Remote Ischemic postconditioning (RIPoC) is a cardioprotective strategy for alleviating the reperfusion injury. We hypothesized that RIPoC or ischemic postconditioning (IPoC) could protect the engrafted mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in reperfusion myocardium. Methods Female Sprague-Dawley rats were subject to 30 minutes of occlusion of left anterior descending (LAD...

MiasDB: A Database of Molecular Interactions Associated with Alternative Splicing of Human Pre-mRNAs

Alternative splicing (AS) is pervasive in human multi-exon genes and is a major contributor to expansion of the transcriptome and proteome diversity. The accurate recognition of alternative splice sites is regulated by information contained in networks of protein-protein and protein-RNA interactions. However, the mechanisms leading to splice site selection are not fully...

Significance of Increased Leptin Expression in Osteoarthritis Patients

Objective Alterations in leptin expression contributes to the progression of various diseases, including cancers. This meta-analysis investigated the clinical significance of leptin levels in osteoarthritis (OA) patients, with the goal of building a leptin-based diagnostic criterion for OA. Method Multiple scientific databases in English and Chinese languages, such as the...

Effect of Octreotide on Hepatic Steatosis in Diet-Induced Obesity in Rats

Background Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) caused by liver lipid dysregulation is linked to obesity. Somatostatin (SST) and its analogs have been used to treat pediatric hypothalamic obesity. However, the application of such drugs for the treatment of NAFLD has not been evaluated. Objective This study aimed to investigate the expression levels of important regulators of...

Background To quantify the effect of cruciferous vegetable consumption on the incidence of ovarian cancer by meta-analyzing the existing observational studies and provides quantitative and high-level evidence. Methods A detailed literature search of Medline and EMBASE for all relevant papers published. A meta-analysis was conducted for the association between cruciferous...

The role of the induction of mild hypothermia in adult patient outcomes after cardiac arrest: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled studies

Objective To determine whether patients with return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) following cardiac arrest who received mild hypothermia have improved mortality and neurological outcomes compared with those who do not receive mild hypothermia.

Overexpression of the MYB37 transcription factor enhances abscisic acid sensitivity, and improves both drought tolerance and seed productivity in Arabidopsis thaliana

Although a lot of genes have been revealed to participate in abscisic acid (ABA) signaling, many of the additional components involved in ABA signaling remain to be discovered. Here we report that overexpression of MYB37, a R2R3 MYB subgroup 14 transcription factor in Arabidopsis thaliana, confers hypersensitive phenotypes to exogenous ABA in all the major ABA responses...

Identification of regional overdistension, recruitment and cyclic alveolar collapse with electrical impedance tomography in an experimental ARDS model

Background Information on regional ventilation distribution in mechanically ventilated patients is important to develop lung protective ventilation strategies. In the present prospective animal study, we introduce an electrical impedance tomography (EIT)-based method to classify lungs into normally ventilated, overinflated, tidally recruited/derecruited and recruited regions...
