Electromobility shift assay is a simple, efficient, and rapid method for the study of specific DNA-protein interactions. It relies on the reduction in the electrophoretic mobility conferred to a DNA fragment by an interacting protein. The technique is suitable to qualitative, quantitative, and kinetic analyses. It can also be used to analyze conformational(More)
PURPOSE It has been suggested that the epithelioid morphology and high aggressiveness that is typical of the uveal melanoma cell line TP17 is dependent on the loss of alpha5beta1 integrin expression at the cell surface. The purpose of the current study was to test this hypothesis in the TP17 cell line and investigate the role this integrin may play in the(More)
Recently, expression of the alpha 4 integrin subunit has been shown to be inversely correlated with the invasive potential of B16 mouse epidermal melanoma. The purpose of this study was to establish whether expression of the human alpha 4 integrin subunit gene might be similarly regulated in human uveal melanoma which has varying degrees of invasiveness,(More)
PURPOSE Altered expression of the alpha5beta1 integrin and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) is recognized as a hallmark of invasive tumor cells. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the expression of integrin subunit alpha5, its corresponding ligand fibronectin (FN), and the expression pattern for MMPs in four highly proliferative human(More)
When performing transcriptional analyses, reporter gene-expression vectors are used to insert promoter fragments through the selected use of a multiple cloning site (MCS) located upstream of the reporter gene. The MCS from pBluescript has frequently been transferred into reporter plasmids (usually bearing the chloramphenical acetyltransferase reporter gene)(More)
Switch fabric in routers requires very tight characteristics in term of packet loss, fairness in bandwidth allocation, no head-of-line blocking and low latency. Such attributes are traditionally resolved using specialized and expensive switch devices. Motivated by the emergence of IEEE Data Center Bridging, we explore the possibility of using commodity(More)
Openflow is a step towards a more flexible data plane. In Openflow-based deployments, packet forwarding model relies on a set of pipelined tables. However, supporting multiple hardware tables is challenging while having serious limitations. In this paper, we investigate a novel approach to packet forwarding design that tailors Openflow forwarding paths(More)
In the quest of providing a deterministic backplane-like behaviour a mechanism called ECCP (Ethernet Congestion Control & Prevention) was proposed where specialized and expensive devices were replaced by commodity Ethernet switches while still keeping the router properties, e.g. low-latency packet delivery, no packet loss within the fabric and fair(More)
