Web applications tend to evolve quickly, resulting in errors and failures in test automation scripts that exercise them. Repairing such scripts to work on the updated application is essential for maintaining the quality of the test suite. Updating such scripts manually is a time consuming task, which is often difficult and is prone to errors if not(More)
Many-core chip design has become a popular means to sustain the exponential growth of chip-level computing performance. The main advantage lies in the exploitation of parallelism, distributively and massively. Consequently, the on-chip communication fabric becomes the performance determinant. In the meantime, the introduction of Ultra-Wideband (UWB)(More)
— State feedback control synthesis problems for a class of polynomial nonlinear systems are investigated in this paper. Less conservative sufficient conditions to achieve the closed-loop stability with or without H∞ performance are formulated in terms of state dependent matrix inequalities. By introducing additional matrix variables, we succeed in(More)
Treating staphylococcal biofilm-associated infections is challenging. Based on the findings that compound 2 targeting the HK domain of Staphylococcus epidermidis YycG has bactericidal and antibiofilm activities against staphylococci, six newly synthesized derivatives were evaluated for their antibacterial activities. The six derivatives of compound 2(More)
In this paper, we address the nonlinear optimal control problem for parameter-dependent nonlinear systems with polynomial vector fields. Based on the state dependent coefficient form, sufficient conditions to guarantee the closed-loop stability and bounded performance index are presented as state dependent linear matrix inequalities, which can be formulated(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play an important role in the development, differentiation, proliferation, survival, and oncogenesis of cells and organisms including nervous system. However, the role of miRNAs in primary neurons of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) after injury was not clear. In this study, a miRNA microarray analysis was performed, and a total of 21 miRNAs(More)
BACKGROUND Ischemic hypoxic brain injury often causes irreversible brain damage. The lack of effective and widely applicable pharmacological treatments for ischemic stroke patients may explain a growing interest in traditional medicines. From the point of view of "self-medication" or "preventive medicine," Cordyceps sinensis was used in the prevention of(More)
Sodium reabsorption through the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) at the distal segment of the kidney plays an important role in salt-sensitive hypertension. We reported previously that hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) stimulates ENaC in A6 distal nephron cells via elevation of phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate (PI(3,4,5)P3) in the apical membrane. Here we(More)
