Study on a storage location strategy based on clustering and association algorithms

In this paper, we study the improvement of a storage location strategy through the use of big data technology, including data collection, cluster analysis and association analysis, to improve order picking efficiency. A clustering algorithm is used to categorize the types of goods in orders. Classification is performed based on the turnover of goods, value, sales volume...

Wearable IoT enabled real-time health monitoring system

As the age profile of many societies continues to increase, in addition to the increasing population of people affected by chronic diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and so on, supporting health, both mentally and physically, is of increasing importance if independent living is to be maintained. Sensing, remote health monitoring, and, ultimately...

The Application of Dynamic Models to the Exploration of -AR Overactivation as a Cause of Heart Failure

High titer of -adrenoreceptor autoantibodies (-AA) has been reported to appear in heart failure patients. It induces sustained -adrenergic receptor (-AR) activation which leads to heart failure (HF), but the mechanism is as yet unclear. In order to investigate the mechanisms causing -AR non-desensitization, we studied the beating frequency of the neonatal rat cardiomyocytes...

Analysis of Wireless Energy Harvesting Relay Throughput in Rician Channel

Cooperative communication uses idle nodes to achieve performance gains. Energy harvesting allows cooperative communication to be less dependent on batteries. In this paper, the performance of energy harvesting (EH) amplify-and-forward relaying is analyzed for Rician fading channels, in contrast to previous works that focused on Rayleigh fading channels. Continuous time EH...

Quantitative Proteomic Profiling of Early and Late Responses to Salicylic Acid in Cucumber Leaves

Salicylic acid (SA) is an important phytohormone that plays vital regulatory roles in plant growth, development, and stress responses. However, studies on the molecular mechanism of SA, especially during the early SA responses, are lagging behind. In this study, we initiated a comprehensive isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantitation (iTRAQ)-based proteomic analysis to...

Characterization of the Fatty Acid Desaturase Genes in Cucumber: Structure, Phylogeny, and Expression Patterns

Fatty acid desaturases (FADs) introduce double bonds into the hydrocarbon chains of fatty acids to produce unsaturated fatty acids, and therefore play a critical role in plant development and acclimation to environmental stresses. In this study, 23 full-length FAD genes in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) were identified through database searches, including three CsFAB2 genes, two...

Mulberry Transcription Factor MnDREB4A Confers Tolerance to Multiple Abiotic Stresses in Transgenic Tobacco

The dehydration responsive element binding (DREB) transcription factors have been reported to be involved in stress responses. Most studies have focused on DREB genes in subgroups A-1 and A-2 in herbaceous plants, but there have been few reports on the functions of DREBs from the A-3–A-6 subgroups and in woody plants. Moreover, mulberry trees are ecologically and economically...

Alterations in Gene Array Patterns in Dendritic Cells from Aged Humans

Dendritic cells (DCs) are major antigen-presenting cells that play a key role in initiating and regulating innate and adaptive immune responses. DCs are critical mediators of tolerance and immunity. The functional properties of DCs decline with age. The purpose of this study was to define the age-associated molecular changes in DCs by gene array analysis using Affymatrix...

The Combination of Three Natural Compounds Effectively Prevented Lung Carcinogenesis by Optimal Wound Healing

The tumor stroma has been described as “normal wound healing gone awry”. We explored whether the restoration of a wound healing-like microenvironment may facilitate tumor healing. Firstly, we screened three natural compounds (shikonin, notoginsenoside R1 and aconitine) from wound healing agents and evaluated the efficacies of wound healing microenvironment for limiting single...

Design of the reliable collection and control scheme of the relay node status of the train carborne control system

Train operation control system is the core of urban rail transit system, and the train carborne control system is an important part of the whole train operation control systems, and its reliability will directly affect the safety of the train. In this paper, two out of three closed-loop dynamic input detection technology and hardware dynamic two out of two voting output...

VEGF Genetic Polymorphisms May Contribute to the Risk of Diabetic Nephropathy in Patients with Diabetes Mellitus: A Meta-Analysis

Objective. This meta-analysis aimed to investigate a comprehensive and reliable conclusion on the correlations of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) gene with the risk of diabetic nephropathy (DN) in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). Methods. We screened PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, Cochrane Library, CISCOM, CINAHL...

Effect of Saturated Near Surface on Nitrate and Ammonia Nitrogen Losses in Surface Runoff at the Loess Soil Hillslope

Water pollution from agricultural fields is a global problem and cause of eutrophication of surface waters. A laboratory study was designed to evaluate the effects of near-surface hydraulic gradients on NO3–N and NH4–N losses in surface runoff from soil boxes at 27% slope undersimulated rainfall of a loess soil hillslope. Experimental treatments included two near-surface...

Delivery of nanoparticles to brain metastases of breast cancer using a cellular Trojan horse

As systemic cancer therapies improve and are able to control metastatic disease outside the central nervous system, the brain is increasingly the first site of relapse. The blood–brain barrier (BBB) represents a major challenge to the delivery of therapeutics to the brain. Macrophages originating from circulating monocytes are able to infiltrate brain metastases while the BBB is...
