BRD7 is a novel gene which involved NPC in our lab. Our previous studies showed that BRD7 was expressed at high level in normal nasopharyngeal epithelial tissues, but at low level in nasopharyngeal carcinoma biopsies and cell lines. In these papers, we found that ectopic expression of BRD7 can decrease cell proliferation and capability to form colonies in(More)
Cooperative communication is a powerful technology combating fading in wireless medium. In contrast to conventional cooperation (CC) which allows the relay to simply process and forward what it has heard, network-coded cooperation (NCC) endows network coding capability with the relay, i.e., allows the relay to first encode the data it has received from(More)
The ribosomal S6 kinase 2 (RSK2) is a well-known serine/threonine kinase and a member of the p90 ribosomal S6 kinase (p90RSK) family of proteins. It is activated downstream of the MEK/ERKs cascade by mitogenic stimuli such as EGF or TPA. Here, we show that RSK2 is activated by treatment with tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and directly(More)
— With the advance of wireless technology, wireless devices are capable of adjusting transmit power and physical (PHY) layer data-rate. In this paper, we investigate the problem of how to adjust the power level and the PHY rate in order to maximize the network throughput in wireless ad hoc networks. Solving this problem can help solve the problem of(More)
This paper introduces the architecture of an AVS (audio video coding standard working group of China) hardware decoding system. The system includes system layer decoding, video decoding and audio decoding. It supports 720p/1080i HD (high-definition) format real-time decoding. A VLSI chip is designed by using this architecture.
— Network-coded cooperation is a new communication paradigm that exploits spatial diversity by pooling distributed " communication " (relay) and also the distributed " computation " resources (coding) of different nodes in a network so as to increase wireless networks system performance. In this paper, we develop a Selective Network-Coded Cooperation (SNCC)(More)
The epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like domain is involved in receptor-ligand interactions, extracellular matrix formation, cell adhesion and chemotaxis. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma associated gene 6 (NGX6) is a novel EGF-like domain-containing gene located at the high frequent loss of heterozygosity (LOH) region 9p21-22 associated with nasopharyngeal carcinoma(More)
MST1 (mammalian STE20-like kinase 1) is a serine/threonine kinase that is cleaved and activated by caspases during apoptosis. Overexpression of MST1 induces apoptotic morphological changes such as chromatin condensation, but the mechanism is not clear. Here we show that MST1 induces apoptotic chromatin condensation through its phosphorylation of histone(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a common cancer in South China but is rare in other parts of the world. A novel NPC-related gene was isolated by location candidate cloning strategy, whose expression was down-regulated in NPC. This gene was designated human NGX6 (Genbank accession AF188239) and encoded a predicted protein of 338 amino acids that harbors an(More)
Studies showed that the bromodomain binds to acetyl-lysines on histone tails, which is involved in deciphering the histone codes. BRD7, a novel bromodomain gene, is the first described bromodomain gene involved in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). Previous studies showed that ectopic expression of BRD7 inhibited cell growth and cell cycle progression from G1(More)
