Protein microarray is a powerful technology for both basic research and clinical study. However, because there is no database specifically tailored for protein microarray, the majority of the valuable original protein microarray data is still not publically accessible. To address this issue, we constructed Protein Microarray Database (PMD), which is… (More)
Bcl2-associated athanogene 2 (BAG2) shares a similar molecular structure and function with other BAG family members. Functioning as a co-chaperone, it interacts with the ATPase domain of the heat shock protein 70 (dHsp70) through its BAG domain. It also interacts with many other molecules and regulates various cellular functions. An increasing number of… (More)
PURPOSE We aim to fabricate a thermoplastic poly(methylmethacrylate) (PMMA) Lab-on-a-Chip device to perform continuous- flow polymerase chain reactions (PCRs) for rapid molecular detection of foodborne pathogen bacteria. METHODS A miniaturized plastic device was fabricated by utilizing PMMA substrates mediated by poly(dimethylsiloxane) interfacial… (More)
We introduce the epidemic quasimetric on graphs and study its behavior with respect to clustering techniques. In particular we compare its behavior to known objects such as the graph distance, effective resistance, and modulus of curve families.
To explore small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) remote sensing identifying technology for horticultural crop diseases, and to combine it with small UAV spraying, the peach leaf blade was taken as material, the peach shot-hole disease was taken as object for spectral capture, and the intellectualized identifying and precision control system for horticultural… (More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder. The presence of Lewy bodies is a major pathological change of PD. α-synuclein is the main component of Lewy bodies and is encoded by the SNCA gene. Mutations in the SNCA gene mainly result in rare familial forms of PD, while genetic variability in the SNCA gene modulates… (More)
