Gravitational resonances in mimetic thick branes

Abstract In this work, we investigate gravitational resonances in both single and double mimetic thick branes, which can provide a new way to detect the extra dimension. For the single brane model, we apply the relative probability proposed in [Phys. Rev.D 80 (2009) 065019]. For the double brane model, we investigate the resonances quasi-localized on the double brane, on the sub...

Semi-analytical calculation of gluon fragmentation into 1S 0 [1,8] quarkonia at next-to-leading order

Abstract We calculate the NLO corrections for the gluon fragmentation functions to a heavy quark-antiquark pair in 1S 0 [1] or 1S 0 [8] state within NRQCD factorization. We use integration-by-parts reduction to reduce the original expression to simpler master integrals (MIs), and then set up differential equations for these MIs. After calculating the boundary conditions, MIs can...

U(1) gauge vector field on a codimension-2 brane

Abstract In this paper, we obtain a gauge invariant effective action for a bulk massless U(1) gauge vector field on a brane with codimension two by using a general Kaluza-Klein (KK) decomposition for the field. It suggests that there exist two types of scalar KK modes to keep the gauge invariance of the action for the massive vector KK modes. Both the vector and scalar KK modes...

The roles of HLA-DQB1 gene polymorphisms in hepatitis B virus infection

Infection with the hepatitis B virus (HBV) is an independent risk factor for liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, polymorphisms in HLA-DQB1 play an important role in HBV infections. This study examined the relationships between HLA-DQB1 alleles and HBV infection susceptibility among 256 HBV carriers and 433 healthy controls. Venous blood samples were subjected to DQB1...

Self-Adaptive -Means Based on a Covering Algorithm

The -means algorithm is one of the ten classic algorithms in the area of data mining and has been studied by researchers in numerous fields for a long time. However, the value of the clustering number in the -means algorithm is not always easy to be determined, and the selection of the initial centers is vulnerable to outliers. This paper proposes an improved -means clustering...

Localization of five-dimensional Elko spinors with non-minimal coupling on thick branes

It has been found that the zero mode of a five-dimensional Elko spinor could be localized on branes by introducing a Yukawa-type coupling between the Elko spinor and the background scalar field or the Ricci scalar. However, the Yukawa-type coupling is not appropriate for all brane models. In this paper, we explore other localization mechanism for the Elko spinor by introducing...

Oleandrin synergizes with cisplatin in human osteosarcoma cells by enhancing cell apoptosis through activation of the p38 MAPK signaling pathway

PurposeOur previous studies have reported the antitumor effect of oleandrin on osteosarcoma; however, its chemosensitizing effect in osteosarcoma treatment is still unknown. Therefore, we explored the sensitizing effects of oleandrin to cisplatin in osteosarcoma and investigated the potential mechanisms.MethodsAfter exposure to oleandrin and/or cisplatin, CCK-8 and colony...

Stability of braneworlds with non-minimally coupled multi-scalar fields

Linear stability of braneworld models constructed with multi-scalar fields is very different from that of single-scalar field models. It is well known that both the tensor and the scalar perturbations of the latter are stable at linear level. However, in general there is no effective method to deal with the stability problem of the scalar perturbations for braneworld models...
