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)
S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) synthetase catalyzes the synthesis of SAM, a molecule important for all cellular organisms. It is also considered to play an important role in salt tolerance of plants. Here, we cloned a Lycoris radiata (L. radiata) SAM synthetase gene LrSAMS to determine its biological function. The gene encodes a protein of 401 amino acids with(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)
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)
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)
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)
Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL), the first enzyme of phenylpropanoid biosynthesis, participates in the biosynthesis of flavonoids, lignins, stilbenes and many other compounds. In this study, we cloned a 2,326 bp full-length PAL2 gene from Lycoris radiata by using degenerate oligonucleotide primer PCR (DOP-PCR) and the rapid amplification of cDNA ends(More)
Starch from bamboo Phyllostachys bambusoides f. shouzhu Yi evaluated by means of solid-state 13C CP/MAS NMR and X-ray diffraction showed a typical B-type pattern with a very low degree of crystallinity (10.9%). In addition to starch, alkali-soluble hemicelluloses were further fractionated by graded precipitation at ethanol concentrations of 0 (HA), 15, 30,(More)
