  • Publication number: 20200096444
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a fluorescent probe for detecting a sulfenated protein, having the following structural general formula (I). The fluorescent probe has good stability and can be preserved for long-term use. The fluorescent probe is highly sensitive to its environment, having no strong fluorescence in a hydrophilic environment, and producing strong fluorescence only after reaction with a sulfenated protein such that a fluorophore is in a hydrophobic environment in the protein structure, and thus is able to develop in situ in cells the sulfhydryl sulfenated protein. Furthermore, the fluorescent probe has good water solubility and a relatively large absorption-emission wavelength difference, and can be paired with a tryptophan residue in a protein to produce a fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) effect in an extracellular buffer solution detection system, effectively avoiding interference of excitation light and emitted light in protein samples.

  • Patent number: 10593043
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for segmenting a digital image to identify an object portrayed in the digital image from background pixels in the digital image. In particular, in one or more embodiments, the disclosed systems and methods use a first neural network and a second neural network to generate image information used to generate a segmentation mask that corresponds to the object portrayed in the digital image. Specifically, in one or more embodiments, the disclosed systems and methods optimize a fit between a mask boundary of the segmentation mask to edges of the object portrayed in the digital image to accurately segment the object within the digital image.

  • Publication number: 20040224343
    Abstract: Treatments of molecules with organic chemicals or bipolar reagents are used to enhance the interactions among or between molecules such as binding between proteins and antibodies or between nuclear acids. Such organic chemicals or bipolar reagents include alcohols, detergent, ester and ether. Treatments of molecules with the organic chemicals or bipolar reagents can take place before or during interactions among or between molecules. Enhancing intensities are about 2 to 100 times depending on molecules, organic chemicals or bipolar reagents and timing to treat molecules.

  • Patent number: 5923380
    Abstract: The present invention is useful in taking a visible light image for identification and other purposes without the requirement of a photobooth, regardless of the background of the visible light image. The original background of the visible light image is replaced with a preselected background. Two IR images with different intensities of IR illumination in the foreground and background regions of the scene, respectively, are compared to produce a difference image of light intensity differences between corresponding pixels of the two images. A binarized image is generated by binarizing the difference image with respect to a predetermined threshold value .theta.. A connectivity constraint is used to generate a binary mask from the binarized image, then a gray-scale mask is produced by multiplying the binary mask times a preselected modulation function of the difference image. Warping the gray-scale mask produces a transformed mask.

  • Patent number: 5887084
    Abstract: A method or system for structuring an image which corresponds to an original array of pixels, as a forward discrete even cosine transform (DCT) pyramid having a predetermined number of levels where each level is associated with a different DCT frequency band, includes, respectively, the steps or functionality of: partitioning the original array into blocks of overlapped pixels; taking a DCT of each block of overlapped pixels to generate blocks of first level DCT coefficients forming a first level of the DCT pyramid; storing the first level of the DCT pyramid; selecting and storing at least one of the first level DCT coefficients of each block of first level DCT coefficients into a first temporary array; partitioning the first temporary array into blocks of overlapped coefficients; and taking a DCT of each block of overlapped coefficients of the first temporary array to generate blocks of second level DCT coefficients forming a second level of the DCT pyramid.

  • Patent number: 5729631
    Abstract: The invention relates to a novel process and system for removing noise from an image by first noise modeling an image signal source to generate noise masks and LUT values characteristic of noise at different frequency levels for each channel, and then applying the stored noise masks and LUT values to an image signal for noise removal. The image is first captured as an electronic image signal by the image signal source, then represented by a pyramid structure whereby each successive level of the pyramid is constructed from DC values of the previous level, and each level of the pyramid corresponds to a different frequency band of the image signal. A Wiener variant filter using DCT transforms is used to filter DCT coefficients at each level. The image is restored with reduced noise by replacing DC values with next level IDCT coefficients then performing an IDCT on the results.

The original background of the image is replaced with a preselected background. Two IR images with different intensities of IR illumination in the foreground and background regions of the scene, respectively, are compared for light intensity differences between corresponding pixels of the two images to form a mask differentiating between the foreground and background regions of the image. The mask is then applied to a visible light image of the scene and the preselected background is used to replace the original background.
