    Oncology Research, Vol.32, No.3, pp. 563-576, 2024, DOI:10.32604/or.2023.029697

    Abstract Glycogen metabolism plays a key role in the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but the function of glycogen metabolism genes in the tumor microenvironment (TME) is still to be elucidated. Single-cell RNA-seq data were obtained from ten HCC tumor samples totaling 64,545 cells, and 65 glycogen metabolism genes were analyzed by a nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF). The prognosis and immune response of new glycogen TME cell clusters were predicted by using HCC and immunotherapy cohorts from public databases. HCC single-cell analysis was divided into fibroblasts, NT T cells, macrophages, endothelial cells, and B cells, which… More >

    Chengjun Wang1,2, Fan Ding2,*, Yiwen Wang1, Renyuan Wu1, Xingyu Yao2, Chengjie Jiang1, Liuyi Ling1

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.1, pp. 1481-1501, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.046876

    Abstract The real-time detection and instance segmentation of strawberries constitute fundamental components in the development of strawberry harvesting robots. Real-time identification of strawberries in an unstructured environment is a challenging task. Current instance segmentation algorithms for strawberries suffer from issues such as poor real-time performance and low accuracy. To this end, the present study proposes an Efficient YOLACT (E-YOLACT) algorithm for strawberry detection and segmentation based on the YOLACT framework. The key enhancements of the E-YOLACT encompass the development of a lightweight attention mechanism, pyramid squeeze shuffle attention (PSSA), for efficient feature extraction. Additionally, an attention-guided… More >

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.139, No.2, pp. 1863-1892, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.031480

    Abstract This research is devoted to diagnosing water-borne infectious diseases caused by floods employing a novel diagnosis approach, the Einstein hybrid structure of q-rung orthopair fuzzy soft set. This approach integrates parts of fuzzy logic and soft set theory to develop a robust alternative for disease detection in stressful situations, especially in areas affected by floods. Compared to the traditional intuitionistic fuzzy soft set and Pythagorean fuzzy soft set, the q-rung orthopair fuzzy soft set (q-ROFSS) adequately incorporates unclear and indeterminate facts. The major objective of this investigation is to formulate the q-rung orthopair fuzzy soft… More >

    Person Re-Identification with Model-Contrastive Federated Learning in Edge-Cloud Environment

    Baixuan Tang1,2,#, Xiaolong Xu1,2,#, Fei Dai3, Song Wang4,*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.38, No.1, pp. 35-55, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.036715

    Abstract Person re-identification (ReID) aims to recognize the same person in multiple images from different camera views. Training person ReID models are time-consuming and resource-intensive; thus, cloud computing is an appropriate model training solution. However, the required massive personal data for training contain private information with a significant risk of data leakage in cloud environments, leading to significant communication overheads. This paper proposes a federated person ReID method with model-contrastive learning (MOON) in an edge-cloud environment, named FRM. Specifically, based on federated partial averaging, MOON warmup is added to correct the local training of individual edge… More >

    Carbon Monoxide Modulates Auxin Transport and Nitric Oxide Signaling in Plants under Iron Deficiency Stress

    Kaiyue Hong1,2, Yasmina Radani2, Waqas Ahmad2, Ping Li3, Yuming Luo1,*

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.93, No.1, pp. 45-61, 2024, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2023.046389

    Abstract Carbon monoxide (CO) and nitric oxide (NO) are signal molecules that enhance plant adaptation to environmental stimuli. Auxin is an essential phytohormone for plant growth and development. CO and NO play crucial roles in modulating the plant’s response to iron deficiency. Iron deficiency leads to an increase in the activity of heme oxygenase (HO) and the subsequent generation of CO. Additionally, it alters the polar subcellular distribution of Pin-Formed 1 (PIN1) proteins, resulting in enhanced auxin transport. This alteration, in turn, leads to an increase in NO accumulation. Furthermore, iron deficiency enhances the activity of… More >
