A per-core clock generator for the eight-core POWER7 TM processor is implemented with a digital PLL. This frequency generator is capable of smooth, controlled frequency slewing, minimizing the impact of di/dt. Frequency can be dynamically adjusted while the clock is running, and without skipping any cycles, thus enabling aggressive power management(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine the expression of matriptase and survivin in breast carcinoma and correlate with clinicopathological parameters. METHODS Immunohistochemical analysis of matriptase and survivin were performed in tissue microarray slides of 290 cases, including 11 normal breast tissue; 27 fibrocystic disease; 17 fibroadenoma;(More)
Image registration of biological data is challenging as complex deformation problems are common. Possible deformation effects can be caused in individual data preparation processes, involving morphological deformations, stain variations, stain artifacts, rotation, translation, and missing tissues. The combining deformation effects tend to make existing(More)
Renal reactive oxygen species (ROS) and mononuclear leukocyte infiltration are involved in the progressive stage (exacerbation) of IgA nephropathy (IgAN), which is characterized by glomerular proliferation and renal inflammation. The identification of the mechanism responsible for this critical stage of IgAN and the development of a therapeutic strategy(More)
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) plays a critical role in the regulation of NLRP3 inflammasome activation. However, the ROS-mediated signaling pathways controlling NLRP3 inflammasome activation are not well defined. Using lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) activated murine macrophages as the testing model, cytokine release and protein(More)
Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified 12 epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) susceptibility alleles. The pattern of association at these loci is consistent in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers who are at high risk of EOC. After imputation to 1000 Genomes Project data, we assessed associations of 11 million genetic variants with EOC risk from(More)
For thousands of years, it remains unclear why Chinese prefer complex herbal remedy and seldom try to purify it. One of the reasons is that they believe Chinese herbs compared to Western drugs are relatively less toxic and better tolerated. The so called “Junn-Chenn-Zuou-SS” theory illustrates a concept of coordinated effects from a combination of different(More)
BACKGROUND Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a chronic nephropathy showing characteristic glomerular sclerosis. So far, the diagnosis and prognosis of FSGS rely mainly on the invasive biopsy. Searching for potential FSGS-associated urinary biomarkers representing pre-sclerotic and serial sclerotic stages of FSGS could be helpful to the(More)
The multiuser MIMO space time scheduling problem is the prime focus of the paper. Optimizing the link level performance of the MIMO system does not always imply achieving scheduling level optimization. Therefore, the design optimization across the link layer and the scheduling layer is very important to fully exploit the temporal and spatial dimensions of(More)
