Today Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are a largely underexploited resource on existing desktops and a possible cost-effective enhancement to high-performance systems. To date, most applications that exploit GPUs are specialized scientific applications. Little attention has been paid to harnessing these highly-parallel devices to support more generic(More)

Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) is a neuropeptide commonly associated with the hypothalamic-pituitary adrenal axis stress response. Upon release, CRF activates two G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs): CRF receptor 1 (CRFR1) and CRF receptor 2 (CRFR2). Although both receptors contribute to mood regulation, CRFR1 antagonists have demonstrated anxiolytic(More)
Serotonin (5-HT) interacts with a wide variety of 5-HT receptors (5-HTR) of which 5-HT2AR plays an important target for antidepressant and atypical antipsychotic drugs. The carboxyl-terminal tail of 5-HT2AR encodes a motif that mediates interactions with PSD-95/disc large/zona occludens (PDZ) domain-containing proteins. In the present study, we found that(More)
Salvia miltiorrhiza is one of the most widely used medicinal plants. As a first step to develop a chloroplast-based genetic engineering method for the over-production of active components from S. miltiorrhiza, we have analyzed the genome, transcriptome, and base modifications of the S. miltiorrhiza chloroplast. Total genomic DNA and RNA were extracted from(More)
