In this paper, we study different methods of data compression algorithms on English text files : LZW, Huffman, Fixed-length code (FLC), and Huffman after using Fixed-length code (HFLC). We evaluate and test these algorithms on different text files of different sizes and make a comparison in terms of compression : Size, Ratio, Time (Speed), and Entropy. We(More)
Crossveinless-2 (Cv2), Twisted Gastrulation (Tsg) and Chordin (Chd) are components of an extracellular biochemical pathway that regulates Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP) activity during dorso-ventral patterning of Drosophila and Xenopus embryos, the formation of the fly wing, and mouse skeletogenesis. Because the nature of their genetic interactions(More)
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), as well as the BMP-binding molecules Chordin (Chd), Crossveinless-2 (CV2) and Twisted Gastrulation (Tsg), are essential for axial skeletal development in the mouse embryo. We previously reported a strong genetic interaction between CV2 and Tsg and proposed a role for this interaction in the shaping of the BMP(More)
To determine whether manipulation of time, temperature and intragranular pH could be used to distinguish the actions of two subtilisin-related endoproteases, PC1 and PC2, in peptide biosynthesis, the biosynthetic processing of proneuropeptide Y (proNPY) and proopiomelanocortin (POMC) was examined in pituitary cell lines. AtT-20 cells express PC1 and POMC(More)
We have determined the sequence and genomic organization of the genes encoding the cone visual pigment of the platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) and the echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus), and inferred their spectral properties and evolutionary pathways. We prepared platypus and echidna retinal RNA and used primers of the middle-wave-sensitive (MWS),(More)
