  • Meta-Analysis of the Relationship between Normal Tension Glaucoma, Open-Angle Glaucoma, and Fractional Pressure Reserve
  • Abstract Aim: To investigate the relationship between glaucoma and intraocular pressure (IOP), intracranial pressure (ICP), trans-laminar cribrosa pressure difference (TLCPD), and the newly proposed fractional pressure reserve (FPR). Methods: Ten articles were analyzed by meta-analysis, and subgroup analysis of three factors was conducted. Results: The patients with normal tension glaucoma (NTG) and open-angle glaucoma (OAG) have higher TLCPD and lower ICP than healthy subjects, with obvious heterogeneity. The greater heterogeneity may arise from different ICP measurements and from different countries or regions. FPR performs better than TLCPD in some ways. Conclusion: Both FPR and TLCPD can be used as indicators of…

  • Genetically Encoded FRET Biosensor Detects the Enzymatic Activity of Prostate-Specific Antigen
  • Abstract Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men beyond 50 years old, and ranked the second in mortality. The level of Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in serum has been a routine biomarker for clinical assessment of the cancer development, which is detected mostly by antibody-based immunoassays. The proteolytic activity of PSA also has important functions. Here a genetically encoded biosensor based on fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) technology was developed to measure PSA activity. In vitro assay showed that the biosensor containing a substrate peptide ‘RLSSYYSGAG’ had 400% FRET change in response to 1 µg/ml PSA within 90 min, and…

  • Research and Analysis of WSN Node Location in Highway Traffic Based on Priority
  • Abstract With the rapid development of highway transportation in China, intelligent transportation has become an important part of the traffic structure, and wireless sensor networks are also widely used in intelligent transportation. However, in the wireless traffic sensor network, there is a certain error in the positioning of the anchor blind nodes. In the process of tracking the feedback information, the results of determining the position are very different. Based on the maximum degree of tension, the road traffic wireless Research and analysis of blind node location in sensor networks, and propose solutions and measures to reduce monitoring results.

  • Smart Contract Fuzzing Based on Taint Analysis and Genetic Algorithms
  • Abstract Smart contract has greatly improved the services and capabilities of blockchain, but it has become the weakest link of blockchain security because of its code nature. Therefore, efficient vulnerability detection of smart contract is the key to ensure the security of blockchain system. Oriented to Ethereum smart contract, the study solves the problems of redundant input and low coverage in the smart contract fuzz. In this paper, a taint analysis method based on EVM is proposed to reduce the invalid input, a dangerous operation database is designed to identify the dangerous input, and genetic algorithm is used to optimize the…

  • Stability Control of Gob-Side Entry Retaining in Fully Mechanized Caving Face Based on a Compatible Deformation Model
  • Abstract The stability control of gob-side entry retaining in fully mechanized caving face is a typical challenge in many coal mines in China. The rotation and subsidence of the lateral cantilever play a critical role in a coal mine, possibly leading to instability in a coal seam wall or a gob-side wall due to its excessive rotation subsidence. Hence, the presplitting blasting measures in the roof was implemented to cut down the lower main roof and convert it to caved immediate roof strata, which can significantly reduce the rotation space for the lateral cantilever and effectively control its rotation. Firstly, the…

  • The Influence of Entanglements of Net Chains on Phase Transition Temperature of Sensitive Hydrogels in Chemo-Mechanical Coupled Fields
  • Abstract Phase transition of hydrogel, which is polymerized by polymer network, can be regarded as the transition of polymer network stability. The stability of the polymer network might be changed when the external environment changed. This change will lead to the transformation of sensitive hydrogels stability, thus phase transition of hydrogel take place. Here, we present a new free density energy function, which considers the non-gaussianity of the polymer network, chains entanglement and functionality of junctions through adding Gent hyplastic model and Edwards-Vilgis slip-link model to Flory-Huggins theory. A program to calculate the phase transition temperature was written based on new…

  • Crank-Nicolson ADI Galerkin Finite Element Methods for Two Classes of Riesz Space Fractional Partial Differential Equations
  • Abstract In this paper, two classes of Riesz space fractional partial differential equations including space-fractional and space-time-fractional ones are considered. These two models can be regarded as the generalization of the classical wave equation in two space dimensions. Combining with the Crank-Nicolson method in temporal direction, efficient alternating direction implicit Galerkin finite element methods for solving these two fractional models are developed, respectively. The corresponding stability and convergence analysis of the numerical methods are discussed. Numerical results are provided to verify the theoretical analysis.

  • Fast Single Image Haze Removal Method for Inhomogeneous Environment Using Variable Scattering Coefficient
  • Abstract The images capture in a bad environment usually loses its fidelity and contrast. As the light rays travel towards its destination they get scattered several times due to the tiny particles of fog and pollutants in the environment, therefore the energy gets lost due to multiple scattering till it arrives its destination, and this degrades the images. So the images taken in bad weather appear in bad quality. Therefore, single image haze removal is quite a bit tough task. Significant research has been done in the haze removal algorithm but in all the techniques, the coefficient of scattering is taken…

  • Assessment of Castor Plant (Ricinus communis L.) Tolerance to Heavy Metal Stress-A Review
  • Abstract Increased urbanization and industrialization have greatly contributed to the emission of higher amount of heavy metals such as cadmium, nickel, and lead into the environment. These metals are non-biodegradable and toxic, causing much effects on plants and by extension to animals and humans, which have become a major global concern. The inherent ability of plants to resist heavy metal toxicity seems to be the most sustainable and cost-effective strategy. Castor plant is widely studied due to its tolerance to the effects of heavy metal contaminated soils, owing to its large biomass content and high accumulating capacity. Castor plants to some…

  • Oxidative Stress Tolerance Mechanism in Rice under Salinity
  • Abstract The research was conducted to investigate comparative oxidative damage including probable protective roles of antioxidant and glyoxalase systems in rice (Oryza sativa L.) seedlings under salinity stress. Seedlings of two rice genotypes: Pokkali (tolerant) and BRRI dhan28 (sensitive) were subjected to 8 dSm−1 salinity stress for seven days in a hydroponic system. We observed significant variation between Pokkali and BRRI dhan28 in phenotypic, biochemical and molecular level under salinity stress. Carotenoid content, ion homeostasis, antioxidant enzymes, ascorbate and glutathione redox system and proline accumulation may help Pokkali to develop defense system during salinity stress. However, the activity antioxidant enzymes particularly…
