MRI combined with PET-CT of different tracers to improve the accuracy of glioma diagnosis: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Based on studies focusing on positron emission tomography (PET)-computed tomography (CT) combined with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the diagnosis of glioma, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating the pros and cons and the accuracy of different examinations. PubMed and Cochrane Library were searched. The search was conducted until April 2017. Two...

micROS: a morphable, intelligent and collective robot operating system

Robots are developing in much the same way that personal computers did 40 years ago, and robot operating system is the critical basis. Current robot software is mainly designed for individual robots. We present in this paper the design of micROS, a morphable, intelligent and collective robot operating system for future collective and collaborative robots. We first present the...

Discriminant Projective Non-Negative Matrix Factorization

Projective non-negative matrix factorization (PNMF) projects high-dimensional non-negative examples X onto a lower-dimensional subspace spanned by a non-negative basis W and considers WT X as their coefficients, i.e., X≈WWT X. Since PNMF learns the natural parts-based representation Wof X, it has been widely used in many fields such as pattern recognition and computer vision...

Store-operated Ca2+ entry regulates glioma cell migration and invasion via modulation of Pyk2 phosphorylation

Background The ubiquitous second messenger Ca2+ has been demonstrated to play an important role in cancer progression. Store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE) is the main Ca2+ entry pathway regulating intracellular Ca2+ concentration in a variety of cancer types. The present study aimed to explore the specific mechanisms of SOCE in the processes of glioma migration and invasion. Methods...

The Achene Mucilage Hydrated in Desert Dew Assists Seed Cells in Maintaining DNA Integrity: Adaptive Strategy of Desert Plant Artemisia sphaerocephala

Despite proposed ecological importance of mucilage in seed dispersal, germination and seedling establishment, little is known about the role of mucilage in seed pre-germination processes. Here we investigated the role of mucilage in assisting achene cells to repair DNA damage during dew deposition in the desert. Artemisia sphaerocephala achenes were first treated γ-irradiation to...

Seed Mucilage Improves Seedling Emergence of a Sand Desert Shrub

The success of seedling establishment of desert plants is determined by seedling emergence response to an unpredictable precipitation regime. Sand burial is a crucial and frequent environmental stress that impacts seedling establishment on sand dunes. However, little is known about the ecological role of seed mucilage in seedling emergence in arid sandy environments. We...

Fine-grained parallel RNAalifold algorithm for RNA secondary structure prediction on FPGA

Zhou and Xuejun Yang participated in the discussion of the study and performed the performance evaluation. Jiaqing Xu participated in the sequence alignment and the analysis of original RNAalifold
