A Comparison of the Microwave Photoconductivity Decay and Open-Circuit Voltage Decay Lifetime Measurement Techniques for Lifetime-Enhanced 4H-SiC Epilayers

This work compares the optical microwave photoconductivity decay (μPCD) and electrical open-circuit voltage decay (OCVD) techniques for measuring the ambipolar carrier lifetime in 4H-silicon carbide (4H-SiC) epitaxial layers. Lifetime measurements were carried out by fabricating P+/intrinsic/N+ (PiN) diodes on 100-μm-thick, 1 × 1014 cm−3 to 4.5 × 1014 cm−3 doped N-type 4 H-SiC...

A New Cellular Automaton Model for Urban Two-Way Road Networks

A new cellular automaton (CA) model is proposed to simulate traffic dynamics in urban two-way road network systems. The NaSch rule is adopted to represent vehicle movements on road sections. Two novel rules are proposed to move the vehicles in intersection areas, and an additional rule is developed to avoid the “gridlock” phenomenon. Simulation results show that the network...

A Spectral Graph Regression Model for Learning Brain Connectivity of Alzheimer’s Disease

Understanding network features of brain pathology is essential to reveal underpinnings of neurodegenerative diseases. In this paper, we introduce a novel graph regression model (GRM) for learning structural brain connectivity of Alzheimer's disease (AD) measured by amyloid-β deposits. The proposed GRM regards 11C-labeled Pittsburgh Compound-B (PiB) positron emission tomography...

A Straightforward Synthesis and Characterization of a New Poly(imide siloxane)-based Thermoplastic Elastomer

Three series of poly(imide siloxane) (PIS) copolymers were synthesized through straightforward simultaneous condensation reaction of pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA), 2, 2′-bis[4-(3-aminophenoxy)phenyl] sulfone (m-BAPS) and three different number-average molecular weights (Mn=859, 1152 and 1619 g·mol−1) of α, ω-bis (3-aminopropyl) polydimethyl siloxane (APPS). The effects of hard...

A comprehensive overview of exosomes in ovarian cancer: emerging biomarkers and therapeutic strategies

Exosomes are nanoparticles(40-100 nm) secreted by most cells in the body, which can be isolated from several types of extracellular fluids. It has been shown that exosomes play a key role in intercellular communication and in transportation of genetic information. Emerging evidence shows that exosomes are mediators of metastasis in tumour cells, stromal cells and the...

Activity-Trip Chaining Behavior of Urban Low-Income Populations in Nanjing, China: A Structural Equations Analysis

This paper analyzes the activity-trip chaining behavior of urban low-income populations in Nanjing, China, based on a specific travel survey of low-income residents of Nanjing city (2010), and the database of residents travel survey of Nanjing city (2009). Individual’s information of activity participation and trip chains is extracted from the daily travel diary and matched with...

An unusual function of RON receptor tyrosine kinase as a transcriptional regulator in cooperation with EGFR in human cancer cells

Homodimerization of RON (MST1R), a receptor tyrosine kinase, usually occurs in cells stimulated by a ligand and leads to the downstream activation of signaling pathways. Here we report that bladder cancer cells, in response to physiological stress, use an alternative mechanism for signaling activation. Time-course studies indicated that RON migrated directly from the membrane to...

Anesthetic Propofol Reduces Endotoxic Inflammation by Inhibiting Reactive Oxygen Species-regulated Akt/IKKβ/NF-κB Signaling

Background Anesthetic propofol has immunomodulatory effects, particularly in the area of anti-inflammation. Bacterial endotoxin lipopolysaccharide (LPS) induces inflammation through toll-like receptor (TLR) 4 signaling. We investigated the molecular actions of propofol against LPS/TLR4-induced inflammatory activation in murine RAW264.7 macrophages. Methodology/Principal Findings...

Association between Estrogen Receptor α Gene (ESR1) PvuII (C/T) and XbaI (A/G) Polymorphisms and Hip Fracture Risk: Evidence from a Meta-Analysis

Background and Objective Genetic factors are important in the pathogenesis of fractures. Notably, estrogen receptor α (ESR1) has been suggested as a possible candidate gene for hip fractures; however, published studies of ESR1 gene polymorphisms have been hampered by small sample sizes and inconclusive or ambiguous results. The aim of this meta-analysis is to investigate the...

Beta-Catenin Haplo Insufficient Male Mice Do Not Lose Bone in Response to Hindlimb Unloading

As the β-catenin pathway has been shown to be involved in mechanotransduction, we sought to determine if haploinsufficiency would affect skeletal response to unloading. It has previously been shown that deletion of both alleles of β-catenin in bone cells results in a fragile skeleton highly susceptible to fracture, but deletion of one allele using Dmp1-Cre (Ctnnb1+/loxP; Dmp1-Cre...

Boundedly Rational User Equilibrium with Restricted Unused Routes

A boundedly rational user equilibrium model with restricted unused routes (R-BRUE) considering the restrictions of both used route cost and unused route cost is proposed. The proposed model hypothesizes that for each OD pair no traveler can reduce his/her travel time by an indifference band by unilaterally changing route. Meanwhile, no route is unutilized if its travel time is...

CKD-MBD - A

Introduction and Aims:In patients with chronic renal failure, secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT) sometimes requires parathyroidectomy. Prospectively, we compared total parathyroidectomy without autotransplantation and without thymectomy (tPTX) with subtotal parathyreoidectomy with thymectomy (sPTX) for renal hyperparathyroidism. Methods:From 11/2004 to 11/2008, 43 consecutive...
