A pay load-analysis approach to identification and measurement of peer-to-peer (P2P) network services is proposed. The proposed approach effectively and efficiently identifies the complicated traffic caused by P2P network services. The feature extraction, pay load analysis and dynamic measurement are the three pillars of the proposed approach. The dynamics(More)
Participatory phone sensing is a new sensing paradigm that asks volunteers to contribute their phones' sensing capabilities and gather, analyze, and share local knowledge about their surroundings. While most existing participatory phone sensing systems are standalone structures without cross-system integration, in this study, we propose a novel Comfort(More)
Mobile location sensing applications (MLSAs) represent an emerging genre of applications that exploit Global Positioning System (GPS) technology and facilitate location-based services. The design of MLSAs must incorporate a tradeoff between information accuracy and energy efficiency because GPS technology and data communications are energy expensive and(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is characterized by degradation of the cartilage matrix, leading to pathologic changes in the joints. However, the pathogenic effects of synovial tissue inflammation on OA knees are not clear. To investigate whether the inflammation caused by the medial plica is involved in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis, we examined the expression(More)
While aberrant JAK/STAT signaling is crucial to the development of gastric cancer (GC), its effects on epigenetic alterations of its transcriptional targets remains unclear. In this study, by expression microarrays coupled with bioinformatic analyses, we identified a putative STAT3 target gene, NR4A3 that was downregulated in MKN28 GC daughter cells(More)
With the advances in wireless communications and GPS technology, there is increasing interest in the field of location-aware services. Because of the proliferation of GPS-enabled devices and applications, in this study, we address the scalability issue in trajectory data management. Specifically, we propose a scheme called Inter-Frame Coding (IFC) for(More)
Casein kinase 1 epsilon (CK1ε) is a member of the casein kinase 1 (CK1) family, which comprises highly conserved and ubiquitous serine/threonine protein kinases. Recent studies have demonstrated that CK1ε plays a role in human cancers; however, the role of CK1ε in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unclear. The study used immunohistochemistry to examine(More)
Around the estuary of the Zhuo-Shui River in Taiwan, the waters recede during the winter, causing an increase in bare land area and exposing a large amount of fine earth and sand particles that were deposited on the riverbed. Observations at the site revealed that when northeastern monsoons blow over bare land without vegetation or water cover, the fine(More)
