3D Reconstruction Approach for Outdoor Scene Based on Multiple Point Cloud FusionAbstractMultiple point cloud fusion is one of the most widely used methods for outdoor scene 3D reconstruction. However, being based on the traditional registration methods, their performance critically influences the quality of the 3D reconstruction. This paper proposes a 3D reconstruction method that fuses different sensors point cloud, which comes from laser scanning and structure from motion. First, a scale-based...

A novel astrovirus identified in wild rhesus monkey feces in ChinaAbstractThe discovery and analysis of pathogens carried by non-human primates are important for understanding zoonotic infections in humans. We identified a highly divergent astrovirus (AstV) from fecal matter from a rhesus monkey in China, which has been tentatively named "monkey-feces-associated AstV" (MkAstV). The full-length genome of MkAstV was determined to be 7377 nt in length. It exhibits the standard genomic AstV organization...

Cytoplasmic SIRT1 inhibits cell migration and invasion by impeding epithelial–mesenchymal transition in ovarian carcinomaAbstractSirtuin1 (SIRT1) is a mammalian NAD+-dependent type III deacetylase that plays paramount roles in diverse cellular processes. The nucleocytoplasmic shuttling of SIRT1 was discovered more than a decade ago, but the roles of subcellular SIRT1 localization in tumor progression remain unclear. Here, we report that cytoplasmic SIRT1 acts as a tumor suppressor in ovarian carcinoma....

Noema and Noesis. Part II: Functions of Noematic SynthesisAbstractIn the paper, being the second part of the work entitled Noema and Noesis, the formal model of the noematic synthesis functions is presented. Together with functions of noetic synthesis, they are understood as components of functions of intentional reference, which are to be, in turn, formalizations of intentional acts of reference performed in the stream of consciousness. Noemata are understood as mental representations associated...

Increased reactive oxygen species production and maintenance of membrane potential in VDAC-less Neurospora crassa mitochondriaAbstractThe highly abundant voltage-dependent anion-selective channel (VDAC) allows transit of metabolites across the mitochondrial outer membrane. Previous studies in Neurospora crassa showed that the LoPo strain, expressing 50% of normal VDAC levels, is indistinguishable from wild-type (WT). In contrast, the absence of VDAC (ΔPor-1), or the expression of an N-terminally...

Both involve engineering the drive to spread in the vector population. One has the drive directly depress vector numbers, possibly to extinction. The other leaves intact the vector population but suppresses the disease agent during its interaction with the vector. This second application may use a drive...
