Single biometric cryptosystems were developed to obtain win-win scenarios for security and privacy. They are seriously threatened by spoof attacks, in which a forged biometric copy or artificially recreated biometric data of a legitimate user may be used to spoof a system. Meanwhile, feature alignment and quantization greatly degrade the accuracy of single(More)
β-cyclodextrin-hemin complex (β-CDH) was shown to induce lateral root (LR) formation in tomato. However, the molecular mechanism is still elusive. In this report, the role of reduced glutathione (GSH) in the induction of lateral root triggered by β-CDH was investigated. Similar to the responses of β-CDH, exogenously applied with 0.1 mΜ GSH not only(More)
Although previous results showed that β-cyclodextrin-hemin complex (β-CDH) could induce tomato lateral root (LR) formation, the corresponding downstream messengers are still not fully understood. In this report, similar to the inducing effects of exogenously applied hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), we discovered that β-CDH elicited RBOH1 transcript upregulation,(More)
Improvement of subtype selectivity of an inhibitor's binding activity using the conformational restriction approach has become an effective strategy in drug discovery. In this study, we applied this approach to PDE4 inhibitors and designed a series of novel oxazolidinone-fused 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline derivatives as conformationally restricted(More)
The design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of new phosphodiesterase type 4 (PDE4) inhibitors, which possessed 7-(cyclopentyloxy)-6-methoxy 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline ring, were described. Compound 8 [(7-cyclopentyloxy)-6-methoxy-3,4-dihydroisoquinolin-2(1H)-yl)(4-hydroxy-3-methoxy-phenyl)methanone] showed the best inhibitory activity and good(More)
