An important quest in modern biology is to identify genes involved in aging. Model organisms such as the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans are particularly useful in this regard. The C. elegans genome has been sequenced [1], and single gene mutations that extend adult life span have been identified [2]. Among these longevity-controlling loci are four(More)
Over the past decade, an intensive research on the basic biology of aging has identified individual genes either directly or indirectly involved in regulating the aging process in various model organisms. This allows us to garner all the information available from studies of model organisms and to apply them to better understand aging and cancer in human.(More)
A power control scheme for packet-based wireless communication systems is proposed in this paper. The proposed power control scheme aims at minimizing the total number of transmission that a packet needs before it is received successfully over a Rayleigh fading channel subject to two constraints. One is that the transmission power should be greater than(More)
Homologous recombination is an important mechanism in DNA replication to ensure faithful DNA synthesis and genomic stability. In this study, we investigated the role of XRCC2, a member of the RAD51 paralog family, in cellular recovery from replication arrest via homologous recombination. The protein expression of XRCC2, as well as its binding partner(More)
Accumulating body of evidence reveals that hSIRT1, an NAD(+)-dependent protein deacetylase, is involved in regulating numerous biological processes. Therefore cellular functions of hSIRT1 are highly pleiotropic. The integrated hypothetical mechanisms of hSIRT1 action contributing to regulating cellular senescence and longevity have been proposed. Based on(More)
