A dual-band bandpass filter using both an open stub-loaded resonator (OSLR) and a short stub-loaded resonator (SSLR) is presented. The use of SSLR has the advantage that a transmission zero can be flexibly controlled by tuning the length of the short stub, which can be employed as a new but convenient way to create transmission zeros in front of passbands(More)
Nucleolar and spindle-associated protein (NuSAP) is a microtubule-associated protein that functions as a microtubule stabiliser. Depletion of NuSAP leads to severe mitotic defects, however the mechanism by which NuSAP regulates mitosis remains elusive. In this study, we identify the microtubule depolymeriser, mitotic centromere-associated kinesin (MCAK), as(More)
Abnormal amplification of centrosomes could lead to improper chromosome segregation and aneuploidy and is implicated in cancer development. Here, we demonstrate that Axin, a scaffolding protein in Wnt signaling, is phosphorylated by PLK1 during mitosis. Phosphorylation of Axin Ser-157 by PLK1 abolished Axin association with γ-tubulin, while substitution of(More)
In vertebrate cells, chromosomes oscillate to align precisely during metaphase. NuSAP, a microtubule-associated protein, plays a critical role in stabilizing spindle microtubules. In this study, we utilize 3D time-lapse live-cell imaging to monitor the role of NuSAP in chromosome oscillation and identify NuSAP as a novel regulator of the chromokinesin, Kid.(More)
The Farnesoid X receptor (FXR) is a member of the nuclear receptor superfamily, which plays an essential role in lipid homeostasis and glucose metabolism. However, whether or not FXR can prevent rise in blood pressure remains unknown. Here, we investigate the possibility of using chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA), a natural ligand of FXR, to attenuate elevated(More)
In order to integrate heterogeneous spatial data sources to enhance spatial data share and interoperation, the P2P computing technologies were introduced to implement a prototype system of cooperative spatial database named NEBULA. By dynamic and self-cooperative features derived from P2P computing, this cooperative spatial database prototype made(More)
A novel method for the extraction of Sudan dyes including Sudan I, II, III, and IV from environmental water by magnetic titanium dioxide nanoparticles (Fe3O4@TiO2) coated with sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS) as adsorbent was reported. Fe3O4@TiO2 was synthesized by a simple method and was characterized by transmission electron microscopy, Fourier-transform(More)
