The sucrose nonfermenting 1 (SNF1) protein kinase of yeast plays a central role in the transcription of glucose-repressible genes in response to glucose starvation. In this study, we deleted an ortholog of SNF1 from Gibberella zeae to characterize its functions by using a gene replacement strategy. The mycelial growth of deletion mutants (DeltaGzSNF1) was(More)
Sufficient supply of NADPH is one of the most important factors affecting the productivity of biotransformation processes. In this study, construction of an efficient NADPH-regenerating system was attempted using direct phosphorylation of NADH by NADH kinase (Pos5p) from Saccharomyces cerevisiae for producing guanosine diphosphate (GDP)-l-fucose and(More)
PURPOSE This study was conducted to evaluate the changes in neuropsychological functioning in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) after temporal lobe resection. METHODS Fifty-four TLE patients were evaluated before and after surgery using comprehensive neuropsychological tests to assess general intelligence, executive functioning, language, verbal(More)
BACKGROUND Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4G (eIF4G) is thought to influence the translational efficiencies of cellular mRNAs by its roles in forming an eIF4F-mRNA-PABP mRNP that is competent for attachment of the 43S preinitiation complex, and in scanning through structured 5' UTR sequences. We have tested this hypothesis by determining the(More)
A scalable FETI–DP (Dual-Primal Finite Element Tearing and Interconnecting) algorithm for the Stokes problem is developed and analyzed. Advantages of this approach are a coarse problem without primal pressure unknowns and the use of a relatively cheap lumped preconditioner. Especially in three dimensions, these advantages provide a more robust and faster(More)
An iterative substructuring method with Lagrange multipliers is considered for the second order elliptic problem, which is a variant of the FETI-DP method. The standard FETI-DP formulation is associated with the saddle-point problem which is induced from the minimization problem with a constraint for imposing the continuity across the interface. Starting(More)
In this talk we will discuss a nonoverlapping domain decomposition preconditioner for the weakly over-penalized symmetric interior penalty (WOPSIP) method. The WOPSIP method belongs to the family of discontinuous finite element methods. The preconditioner for the WOP-SIP method is based on the balancing domain decomposition by constraints methodology.(More)
OBJECTIVES As South Korea has the highest incidence of completed suicides, the present study aimed to investigate the predictive power of the variables that have been associated with suicide attempts in Korean patients diagnosed with depression. METHODS Hundred participants were divided into two groups: suicide attempters (31%) and suicide non-attempters(More)
In our earlier work [4], a dual iterative substructuring method for two dimensional problems was proposed, which is a variant of the FETI-DP method. The proposed method imposes continuity on the interface by not only the pointwise matching condition but also uses a penalty term which measures the jump across the interface. For a large penalization(More)
