Urine Organic Acids as Potential Biomarkers for Autism-Spectrum Disorder in Chinese Children

Qiao Chen, You Qiao, Xin-jie Xu, Ying Tao, Xin You
2019 Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience  
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that lacks clear biological biomarkers. Existing diagnostic methods focus on behavioral and performance characteristics, which complicates the diagnosis of patients younger than 3 years-old. The purpose of this study is to characterize metabolic features of ASD that could be used to identify potential biomarkers for diagnosis and exploration of ASD etiology. We used gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) to evaluate major

Three algorithms, Partial Least Squares-Discriminant Analysis (PLS-DA), Support Vector Machine (SVM), and eXtreme Gradient Boosting (XGBoost), were used to develop models to distinguish ASD from typically developing (TD) children and to detect potential biomarkers. In an independent testing set, full model of XGBoost with all 76 acids achieved an AUR of 0.94, while reduced model with top 20 acids discovered by voting from these three algorithms achieved 0.93 and represent a good collection of potential ASD biomarkers. In summary, urine organic acids detection with GC/MS combined with XGBoost algorithm could represent a novel and accurate strategy for diagnosis of autism and the discovered potential biomarkers could be valuable for future research on the pathogenesis of autism and possible interventions.

Concept based Attention [article]

Jie You, Xin Yang, Matthias Hub
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Attention endows animals an ability to concentrate on the most relevant information among a deluge of distractors at any given time, either through volitionally 'top-down' biasing, or driven by automatically 'bottom-up' saliency of stimuli, in favour of advantageous competition in neural modulations for information processing. Nevertheless, instead of being limited to perceive simple features, human and other advanced animals adaptively learn the world into categories and abstract concepts from

Compass-free migratory navigation [article]

Xin Zhao, Hong-Bo Chen, Li-Hua Lu, You-Quan Li
2021 arXiv   pre-print
How migratory birds can find the right way in navigating over thousand miles is an intriguing question, which much interested researchers in both fields of biology and physics for centuries. There several putative proposals that sound intuitively plausible all remain contested so far because those hypothesis-models of magnetoreceptor to sense geomagnetic field need either extremely high sensitivity or humankind-like intelligence to guide. Here we explore theoretically that the birds can

Our proposal is based on separate peaks of the resonance-fluorescence spectrum of a four-level system derived from the ferric sulfide cluster which exists in a protein complex (Drosophila CG8198) of migratory birds. As the separation of spectral peaks contains information about geomagnetic field at both current location and birthland, the change of such separation cues the bird to choose a right direction to move and double-resonance emerges once arrived the destination. Our theoretical mechanism can explain previous experiments on the disorientation of migratory birds caused by oscillating magnetic field naturally and more precisely. This work provides insight to explain migratory navigation and motivates possible manmade practical devices.

Unknown-Aware Object Detection: Learning What You Don't Know from Videos in the Wild [article]

Xuefeng Du, Xin Wang, Gabriel Gozum, Yixuan Li
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Building reliable object detectors that can detect out-of-distribution (OOD) objects is critical yet underexplored. One of the key challenges is that models lack supervision signals from unknown data, producing overconfident predictions on OOD objects. We propose a new unknown-aware object detection framework through Spatial-Temporal Unknown Distillation (STUD), which distills unknown objects from videos in the wild and meaningfully regularizes the model's decision boundary. STUD first

Alongside, we employ an energy-based uncertainty regularization loss, which contrastively shapes the uncertainty space between the in-distribution and distilled unknown objects. STUD establishes the state-of-the-art performance on OOD detection tasks for object detection, reducing the FPR95 score by over 10% compared to the previous best method. Code is available at

Let {U 1 , U 2 , . . . , U n } be a sequence of independent and identically distributed U 0, 1 -distributed random variables. Define the uniform empirical process as α n t n −1/2 n i 1 I{U i ≤ t} − t , 0 ≤ t ≤ 1, α n sup 0≤t≤1 |α n t |. In this paper, we get the exact convergence rates of weighted infinite series of E α n 2 I{ α n ≥ ε log n 1/β }.

Quantum Magnetometer with Dual-Coupling Optomechanics [article]

Gui-Lei Zhu, Jin Liu, Ying Wu, Xin-You Lü
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We propose an experimentally feasible magnetometer based on a dual-coupling optomechanical system, where the radiation-pressure coupling transduces the magnetic signal to the optical phase, and the quadratic optomechanical interaction induces a periodic squeezing effect. The latter not only amplifies the signal to be measured, but also accelerates the signal transducing rate characterized by an experimentally observable phase accumulation efficiency. In the vicinity of opto-mechanical decoupled

Moreover, our proposal is robust against the mechanical thermal noise, and the sensitivity of a specific measurement can reach to the order of 10^-17 T/√(Hz) in the presence of dissipations and without ground state cooling of mechanical oscillator. Our proposal fundamentally broadens the fields of quantum metrology and cavity optomechanics, with potential application for on-chip magnetic detection with high precision.

Beyond Random Walk and Metropolis-Hastings Samplers: Why You Should Not Backtrack for Unbiased Graph Sampling [article]

Chul-Ho Lee, Xin Xu, Do Young Eun
2012 arXiv   pre-print
Graph sampling via crawling has been actively considered as a generic and important tool for collecting uniform node samples so as to consistently estimate and uncover various characteristics of complex networks. The so-called simple random walk with re-weighting (SRW-rw) and Metropolis-Hastings (MH) algorithm have been popular in the literature for such unbiased graph sampling. However, an unavoidable downside of their core random walks -- slow diffusion over the space, can cause poor

In this paper, we propose non-backtracking random walk with re-weighting (NBRW-rw) and MH algorithm with delayed acceptance (MHDA) which are theoretically guaranteed to achieve, at almost no additional cost, not only unbiased graph sampling but also higher efficiency (smaller asymptotic variance of the resulting unbiased estimators) than the SRW-rw and the MH algorithm, respectively. In particular, a remarkable feature of the MHDA is its applicability for any non-uniform node sampling like the MH algorithm, but ensuring better sampling efficiency than the MH algorithm. We also provide simulation results to confirm our theoretical findings.

Identification of Genes Required for Nonhost Resistance to Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae Reveals Novel Signaling Components

2012 PLoS ONE  
Nonhost resistance is a generalized, durable, broad-spectrum resistance exhibited by plant species to a wide variety of microbial pathogens. Although nonhost resistance is an attractive breeding strategy, the molecular basis of this form of resistance remains unclear for many plant-microbe pathosystems, including interactions with the bacterial pathogen of rice, Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo). Methods and Findings: Virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS) and an assay to detect the

When infiltrated with Xoo strain YN-1, N. benthamiana plants exhibited a strong necrosis within 24 h and produced a large amount of H 2 O 2 in the infiltrated area. Expression of HR-and defense-related genes was induced, whereas bacterial numbers dramatically decreased during necrosis. VIGS of 45 ACE (Avr/Cf-elicited) genes revealed identified seven genes required for nonhost resistance to Xoo in N. benthamiana. The seven genes encoded a calreticulin protein (ACE35), an ERF transcriptional factor (ACE43), a novel Solanaceous protein (ACE80), a hydrolase (ACE117), a peroxidase (ACE175) and two proteins with unknown function (ACE95 and ACE112). The results indicate that oxidative burst and calcium-dependent signaling pathways play an important role in nonhost resistance to Xoo. VIGS analysis further revealed that ACE35, ACE80, ACE95 and ACE175, but not the other three ACE genes, interfered with the Cf-4/Avr4-dependent HR.
