We present the design and implementation of the XSQ system for querying streaming XML data using XPath 1.0. Using a clean design based on a hierarchical arrangement of pushdown transducers augmented with buffers, XSQ supports features such as multiple predicates, closures, and aggregation. XSQ not only provides high throughput, but is also memory efficient:(More)
We have implemented and released the XSQ system for evaluating XPath queries on streaming XML data. XSQ supports XPath features such as multiple predicates, closures, and aggregation, which pose interesting challenges for streaming evaluation. Our implementation is based on using a hierarchical arrangement of augmented finite state automata. A design goal(More)

The breaking of immune tolerance of "self-antigens" associated with angiogenesis is an attractive approach to cancer therapy by active immunity. We used vascular endothelial growth factor receptor-2 (VEGFR-2) as a model antigen to explore the feasibility of the immunotherapy with a vaccine based on a xenogeneic homologous protein. To test this concept, we(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the role of early or up-front radiotherapy (RT), the optimal RT dose required to achieve appropriate treatment outcome and prognostic factors for patients with localized extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal-type, in the upper aerodigestive tract. METHODS AND MATERIALS Eighty-two patients were reviewed. Eight patients were treated(More)
The breaking of immune tolerance against self epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFr) should be a useful approach for the treatment of receptor-positive tumors with active immunization. To test this concept, we constructed a plasmid DNA encoding extracellular domain of xenogeneic (human) EGFr (hEe-p) or corresponding control mouse EGFr (mEe-p) and empty(More)
Three-month-old seedlings of Lycoris chinensis were treated with biotic and abiotic elicitors: yeast elicitor (YE), methyl jasmonate (MJ), salicylic acid (SA), and sodium nitroprusside as NO donator (NO). We have shown that the addition of MJ and NO promotes the accumulation of galanthamine in these seedlings. The effect of these elicitors on the growth of(More)
Emerging evidence indicates that certain microRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in epileptogenesis. MiR-219 is a brain-specific miRNA and has been shown to negatively regulate the function of N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors by targeting Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII)γ. Herein, we found that the level of miR-219 was decreased in(More)
Immunization with xenogeneic antigens is an attractive approach to induce cross-reactive humoral and cellular immunity to inhibit tumor growth or angiogenesis. To identify novel xenogenic targets for immunotherapy, we have developed a modified serological expression cloning (SEREX) strategy, termed Cross-reactive SEREX (CR-SEREX). Among 78 positive clones(More)
BACKGROUND Lycoris aurea, also called Golden Magic Lily, is an ornamentally and medicinally important species of the Amaryllidaceae family. To date, the sequencing of its whole genome is unavailable as a non-model organism. Transcriptomic information is also scarce for this species. In this study, we performed de novo transcriptome sequencing to produce the(More)
Adsorption of acidified multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) to heavy metal using Pb(II) as a model was investigated and characterized by many techniques. The main adsorption mechanism of acidified MWCNTs to Pb(II) is proposed on the basis of adequate analysis. The results show that the oxygenous functional groups can be formed on MWCNTs after MWCNTs were(More)
