The Silkworm Knowledgebase (SilkDB) is a web-based repository for the curation, integration and study of silkworm genetic and genomic data. With the recent accomplishment of a approximately 6X draft genome sequence of the domestic silkworm (Bombyx mori), SilkDB provides an integrated representation of the large-scale, genome-wide sequence assembly, cDNAs,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the changes of p38MAPK expression in a rat model of Alzheimer disease (AD). METHODS Seventy-two adult SD rats were randomized equally into 4 groups, and a single-dose injection of Abeta25-35 (dementia group), normal saline (saline group), SB203580 (inhibitor group), or DMSO (inhibitor control group) was administered into the(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the age‑related alterations in hypertensive brain damage in the hippocampi of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and the underlying mechanisms. Aging resulted in a significant increase in the number of activated astrocytes and apoptotic cells in the SHR group, which was accompanied by increased expression(More)
—We consider iterative decoding of repeat-accumulate (RA) codes over frequency-flat, quasi-static fading channels. A soft-input, soft-output decoder is proposed for the inner convolutional decoding, which fuses the decoding approach of the soft-output Viterbi algorithm and the estimation approach of the maximum-likelihood sequence detector. The decoder(More)
