Given a query photo issued by a user (q-user), the landmark retrieval is to return a set of photos with their landmarks similar to those of the query, while the existing studies on the landmark retrieval focus on exploiting geometries of landmarks for similarity matches between candidate photos and a query photo. We observe that the same landmarks provided by different users over social media community may convey different geometry information depending on the viewpoints and/or angles, and may subsequently yield very different results...

Development of safe non-viral carrier systems for efficient intra-cellular delivery of drugs and genes hold promise in the area of translational research. Liposome based delivery systems have emerged as one of the attractive strategies for efficient delivery of drugs and nucleic acids. To this end, number of investigations was carried on liposomal formulations using lipids for achieving higher efficiency in transfection with lower cytotoxicities. In our efforts to develop safer and efficient liposomal delivery systems, we synthesized a novel anti-oxidant lipid, α-lipoyl, oleyl-sn-phosphatidylcholine (LOPC) and used as a helper lipid in combination with a cationic amphiphile, Di-Stearyl Dihydroxy Ethyl Ammonium Chloride (DSDEAC) and 1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DOPC) at varying concentrations of LOPC...

Protein O-fucosylation is an important glycosylation modification and plays an important role in embryonic development. Protein O-fucosyltransferase 1 (poFUT1) is an essential enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of protein O-fucosylation. Our previous studies showed that poFUT1 promoted trophoblast cell migration and invasion at the fetal-maternal interface, but the role of poFUT1 in trophoblast cells proliferation remains unclear. Here, immunohistochemistry data showed that poFUT1 and PCNA levels were decreased in abortion patient's trophoblasts compared with women with normal pregnancies...

Spike timing-dependent synaptic plasticity (STDP) serves as a key cellular correlate of associative learning, which is facilitated by elevated attentional and emotional states involving activation of adrenergic signaling. At cellular levels, adrenergic signaling increases dendrite excitability, but the underlying mechanisms remain elusive. Here we show that activation of β2-adrenoceptors promoted STD long-term synaptic potentiation at mouse hippocampal excitatory synapses by inactivating dendritic Kv1.1-containing potassium channels, which increased dendrite excitability and facilitated dendritic propagation of postsynaptic depolarization, potentially improving coincidental activation of pre- and postsynaptic terminals...
