Performance loss due to long-latency memory accesses can be reduced by servicing multiple memory accesses concurrently. The notion of generating and servicing long-latency cache misses in parallel is called Memory Level Parallelism (MLP). MLP is not uniform across cache misses - some misses occur in isolation while some occur in parallel with other misses.(More)
There is increasing evidence for mitochondrial dysfunction in neurodegenerative disorders, although the exact role of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations in this process is unresolved. We investigated inherited and somatic mtDNA substitutions and deletions in Guam amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and parkinsonism-dementia (PD). Hypervariable segment 1(More)
Scientific investigations of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and parkinsonism-dementia (PD) of Guam have implicated genetic and environmental risk factors in their etiology. Using brain tissue, we investigated mitochondrial dysfunction and report a higher frequency of somatic mutations in the light strand promoter (LSP) of the mitochondrial control(More)
The increasing frequencies of Plasmodium falciparum strains that are resistant to chloroquine (CQ) and other antimalarials are resulting in a global resurgence of malaria morbidity and mortality. CQ resistance (CQR) is associated with multiple mutations in the P. falciparum chloroquine resistance transporter (pfcrt) gene. The mode and tempo of the(More)
BACKGROUND Archaeological and linguistic evidence suggests the Marianas Islands were settled around 3,600 years before present (ybp) from Island Southeast Asia (ISEA). Around 1,000 ybp latte stone pillars and the first evidence of rice cultivation appear in the Marianas. Both traditions are absent in the rest of prehistoric Oceania. OBJECTIVE To examine(More)
