Simple Summary:& nbsp;Ovarian cancers (OCs) are the most lethal form of gynecological tumors. The commonest are high-grade serous OCs, while rare OCs originate from many different cell types, such as epithelial, germ cell, sex cord-stromal, or mixed types. Rare OCs have distinct molecular characteristics, prognosis, and therapeutic approaches. However, all ovarian malignancies mostly share the same problem: late diagnosis due to the lack of specific symptoms. Therefore, there is a perpetual need to discover better diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive biomarkers, as well as new therapeutic approaches. In recent years, long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have gained widespread attention because of their important role in various biological pathways. They have multiple mechanisms of action with an important role in many cellular processes related to OCs development and progression. This review will focus on the different aspects of lncRNAs in OCs and attempt to highlight the distinctive role of lncRNAs in common and rare OCs.


Promoting the investment on IPPs for optimal grid planning
Tor, Osman; Mohammad, Shahidehpour; Güven, Ali Nezih (2011-07-29)
Summary form only given. This paper presents a transmission expansion planning (TEP) model which coordinates investment decisions in monopolistic transmission and decentralized generator sectors. The proposed planning approach gauges transmission congestion and security constraints with respect to transmission investments while promoting investments on independent power produces (IPPs) through incentive payments. The paper includes discussions on incentive mechanisms and prioritization among qualified IPPs ...
Optical Waveguides Written Deep Inside Silicon by Femtosecond Laser
Pavlov, Ihor; Pavlova, Svitlana; Kadan, Viktor; Makey, Ghaith; Turnali, Ahmet; Colakoglu, Tahir; Yavuz, Ozgun; İLDAY, Fatih Ömer (2017-06-29)
Summary form only given. Photonic devices that can guide, transfer or modulate light are highly desired in electronics and integrated silicon photonics. Through the nonlinear processes taking place during ultrafast laser-material interaction, laser light can impart permanent refractive index change in the bulk of materials, and thus enables the fabrication of different optical elements inside the material. However, due to strong multi-photon absorption of Si resulting delocalization of the light by free car...
An experimental approach to period doubling bifurcations in plasmas
Uzun Kaymak, İlker Ümit (2017-01-01)
Summary form only given. A direct current (dc) driven semiconductor-gas discharge system is designed to study nonlinear behavior and period doubling features experimentally. Numerical analysis and theoretical studies show that the period doubling is expected in the discharge 1 . The plasma is generated between two planar electrodes separated by a narrow gap: cathode is undoped Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) and anode is an IndiumTin Oxide (ITO) coated glass electrode. The GaAs is extensively studied in solid-state...
Backup Magnetometer-only Attitude Estimation Algorithm for Small Satellites
Yakupoglu-Altuntas, Sirin; Eşit, Mehmet; Söken, Halil Ersin; Hajiyev, Chingiz (2022-01-01)
IEEEA different approach for attitude filtering integrates the filter with one of the static attitude estimators (e.g. QUEST) such that the filter uses the estimated attitude by this estimator as the measurement. Among several advantages such as being robust and providing fast convergence, this architecture is also useful when several measurements are integrated. In contrast, this approach cannot provide any measurement to the filter when only one vector measurement is available. In this study, a cascaded s...
Survey of trust-region derivative free optimization methods
Karasözen, Bülent (2007-05-01)
In this survey article we give the basic description of the interpolation based derivative free optimization methods and their variants. We review the recent contributions dealing with maintaining the geometry of the interpolation set, the management of the trust region radius and the stopping criteria. Derivative free algorithms developed for problems with some structure, like for partially separable functions, are discussed. Two different versions of derivative free algorithms are applied for the optimiza...
