Atrial remodeling in atrial fibrillation and association between microRNA network and atrial fibrillation
Ying Zhang,DeLi Dong,BaoFeng Yang
Science China Life Sciences , 2011, DOI: 10.1007/s11427-011-4241-3
Abstract: Atrial fibrillation (AF) remains one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the world which are related to palpitations, fainting, congestive heart failure or stroke. The mechanism for atrial fibrillation has been identified as electrical remodeling, structure remodeling and intracellular calcium handling remodeling. microRNAs (miRNAs) have recently emerged as one of the important factors in regulating gene expression. So far, thousands of miRNA genes have been found in diverse animals with the function of regulating cell death, cell proliferation, haematopoiesis and even participate in the processing of cardiovascular disease. In this review, we summarize the mechanism of AF and the association of microRNAs network with AF. We provide a potential perspective of miRNAs as the therapeutic target for AF.

Remote Sensing , 2015, DOI: 10.3390/rs70101048
Abstract: Accurate and updated finer resolution maps of rubber plantations and stand ages are needed to understand and assess the impacts of rubber plantations on regional ecosystem processes. This study presented a simple method for mapping rubber plantation areas and their stand ages by integration of PALSAR 50-m mosaic images and multi-temporal Landsat TM/ETM+ images. The L-band PALSAR 50-m mosaic images were used to map forests (including both natural forests and rubber trees) and non-forests. For those PALSAR-based forest pixels, we analyzed the multi-temporal Landsat TM/ETM+ images from 2000 to 2009. We first studied phenological signatures of deciduous rubber plantations (defoliation and foliation) and natural forests through analysis of surface reflectance, Normal Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI), and Land Surface Water Index (LSWI) and generated a map of rubber plantations in 2009. We then analyzed phenological signatures of rubber plantations with different stand ages and generated a map, in 2009, of rubber plantation stand ages (≤5, 6–10, >10 years-old) based on multi-temporal Landsat images. The resultant maps clearly illustrated how rubber plantations have expanded into the mountains in the study area over the years. The results in this study demonstrate the potential of integrating microwave (e.g., PALSAR) and optical remote sensing in the characterization of rubber plantations and their expansion over time.

Abstract: Introduction. Chronic hepatitis C remains a formidable threat to world health. Progression of chronic hepatitis C is associated with significant morbidity: cirrhosis, hepatic failure and hepatocellular carcinoma. The introduction of combined therapy with pegylated interferons and ribavirin has increased the sustained virologic response (SVR) in the much higher percentage than with previous treatment options, while the level of adverse effects has not changed significantely. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of combined therapy (peginterferon alfa-2a + ribavirin) in Serbian population. Material and methods. Patients with genotypes 1 and 4 received a 48-week course of therapy of peginterferon alfa-2a (180 mg/week) and ribavirin (1000-1200 mg/day). Patients with genotypes 2 and 3 received the same doses of both drugs, but during 24 weeks. All patients were scheduled for follow-up visit 24 weeks after the end of treatment. Physicians were instructed to adjust the dose of both drugs if adverse events occurred. Standard PCR tests were used for qualitative and quantitative detection of viral RNA, as well as for determination of patients' genotypes. Results and discussion. A total of 95 patients were enrolled in the sutdy. The majority of patients were male (65.26%), aged 40 or under (52.63%), with genotype 1 (63.15%). The average duration of infection was 2.81+4.89 years, but still, the majority of patients (51.58%) had HCV infection for less than 2 years. Fibrosis was present in 69.47 % of patients, and cirrhosis in 21.06%. The most common mode of infection was through i.v. drug use (29.48%), but it was unknown in 32.63% of patients. The mean ALT value was 100.44+70.26, with the total of 93.68% of patients having elevated ALT level. At the end of treatment (EoT) time point, data were collected from 66 patients (69.47%), while at the end of follow-up (EoFU), data were collected from 68 patients (71.58%). This unusual drop-out rate of 28.42% was mainly caused by losing contact with patients (14.74%) and premature termination of therapy (13.68%). The primary parameter of efficacy SVR at the EoFU was achieved in 59 out of 68 patients (86.76%), while the secondary efficacy parameter (SVR at the EoT) was achieved in 77.27% of patients. Multiple regression analysis has established the initial level of ALT, patient's age and fibrosis level as main parameters statistically significantly impacting the outcome of treatment. Although without statistical significance, the trend of better outcomes was associated with early therapy (within 2 years
Redox chemistry of molybdenum in natural waters and its involvement in biological evolution

Abstract: The transition element molybdenum (Mo) possesses diverse valances (+II to +VI), and is involved in forming cofactors in more than 60 enzymes in biology. Redox switching of the element in these enzymes catalyzes a series of metabolic reactions in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and the element therefore plays a fundamental role in the global carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur cycling. In the present oxygenated waters, oxidized Mo(VI) predominates thermodynamically, whilst reduced Mo species are mainly confined within specific niches including cytoplasm. Only recently has the reduced Mo(V) been separated from Mo(VI) in sulfidic mats and even in some reducing waters. Given the presence of reduced Mo(V) in contemporary anaerobic habitats, it seems that reduced Mo species were present in the ancient reducing ocean (probably under both ferruginous and sulfidic conditions), prompting the involvement of Mo in enzymes including nitrogenase and nitrate reductase. During the global transition to oxic conditions, reduced Mo species were constrained to specific anaerobic habitats, and efficient uptake systems of oxidized Mo(VI) became a selective advantage for current prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Some prokaryotes are still able to directly utilize reduced Mo if any exists in ambient environments. In total, this mini-review describes the redox chemistry and biogeochemistry of Mo over the Earth’s history.
Effective Capacity of Buffer-Aided Full-Duplex Relay Systems with Selection Relaying
Deli Qiao
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: In this work, the achievable rate of three-node relay systems with selection relaying under statistical delay constraints, imposed on the limitations of the maximum end-to-end delay violation probabilities, is investigated. It is assumed that there are queues of infinite size at both the source and relay node, and the source can select the relay or destination for data reception. Given selection relaying policy, the effective bandwidth of the arrival processes of the queue at the relay is derived. Then, the maximum constant arrival rate can be identified as the maximum effective capacity as a function of the statistical end-to-end queueing delay constraints, signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) at the source and relay, the fading distributions of the links, and the relay policy. Subsequently, a relay policy that incorporates the statistical delay constraints is proposed. It is shown that the proposed relay policy can achieve better performance than existing protocols. Moreover, it is demonstrated that buffering relay model can still help improve the throughput of relay systems in the presence of statistical delay constraints and source-destination link.
Achievable Rate of Two-Hop Channels under Statistical Delay Constraints
Deli Qiao
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: This paper analyzes the impact of statistical delay constraints on the achievable rate of a two-hop wireless communication link, in which the communication between a source and a destination is accomplished via an intermediate full-duplex relay node. It is assumed that there is no direct link between the source and the destination, and the relay forwards the information to the destination by employing the decode-and-forward scheme. Both the queues at the source and relay node are subject to statistical queueing constraints imposed on the limitations of buffer violation probability. Given statistical delay constraints specified via maximum delay and delay violation probability, the tradeoff between the statistical delay constraints imposed to any two concatenated queues is identified. With this characterization, the maximum constant arrival rates that can be supported by this two-hop link are obtained by determining the effective capacity of such links as a function of the statistical delay constraints and signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) at the source and relay, and the fading distributions of the links. It is shown that imposing unbalanced statistical delay constraints to the queues at the source and relay can improve the achievable rate. Overall, the impact of statistical delay constraints on the achievable throughput is provided.

Abstract: In this paper, the notion of the interval valued neutrosophic soft sets ($ivn-$soft sets) is defined which is a combination of an interval valued neutrosophic sets \cite{wan-05} and a soft sets \cite{mol-99}. Our $ivn-$soft sets generalizes the concept of the soft set, fuzzy soft set, interval valued fuzzy soft set, intuitionistic fuzzy soft set, interval valued intuitionistic fuzzy soft set and neutrosophic soft set. Then, we introduce some definitions and operations on $ivn-$soft sets sets. Some properties of $ivn-$soft sets which are connected to operations have been established. Also, the aim of this paper is to investigate the decision making based on $ivn-$soft sets by level soft sets. Therefore, we develop a decision making methods and then give a example to illustrate the developed approach.
