The Next Release Problem (NRP) aims to optimize customer profits and requirements selection for the software releases. The research on the NRP is restricted by the growing scale of requirements. In this paper, we propose a Backbone-based Multilevel Algorithm (BMA) to address the large scale NRP. In contrast to direct solving approaches, the BMA employs(More)
—In this paper, we propose a semi-supervised text classification approach for bug triage to avoid the deficiency of labeled bug reports in existing supervised approaches. This new approach combines naive Bayes classifier and expectation-maximization to take advantage of both labeled and unlabeled bug reports. This approach trains a classifier with a(More)
With the increasing popularity of Internet, more and more developers are collaborating together for software development. During the collaboration, a lot of information related to software development, including communication and coordination information of developers, can be recorded in software repositories. The information can be employed to construct(More)
MPS-1 (metallopanstimulin-1), also known as ribosomal protein S27, was overexpressed in gastric cancer cells. However, how MPS-1 contributes to gastric carcinogenesis has not been well characterized. Here, we show that high expression of MPS-1 was observed in gastric cancer tissues and associated with gastric cancer cell metastasis. Alteration of MPS-1(More)
EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Telomere repeat binding factor 2 (TRF2) plays a key role in the protective activity of telomere and is overexpression in several kinds of solid cancer cells. However, the role of overexpressed TRF2 in colorectal carcinoma remains unclear. The aim of this study was to determine the expression of TRF2, address the mechanism of TRF2(More)
Graves' disease is a common autoimmune disorder characterized by thyroid stimulating hormone receptor autoantibodies (TRAb) and hyperthyroidism. To investigate the genetic architecture of Graves' disease, we conducted a genome-wide association study in 1,536 individuals with Graves' disease (cases) and 1,516 controls. We further evaluated a group of(More)
RATIONALE Chronic elevation of 3'-5'-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) levels has been associated with cardiac remodeling and cardiac hypertrophy. However, enhancement of particular aspects of cAMP/protein kinase A signaling seems to be beneficial for the failing heart. cAMP is a pleiotropic second messenger with the ability to generate multiple(More)
PURPOSE Myopia and its extreme form, high myopia, are common vision disorders worldwide, especially in Asia. Identifying genetic markers is a useful step toward understanding the genetic basis of high myopia, particularly in the Chinese population, where it is highly prevalent. This study was conducted to provide evidence of linkage for autosomal dominant(More)
Luteinizing hormone (Lh) and follicle-stimulating hormone (Fsh) control many aspects of gonadal development and function in teleosts. In the present paper, the specific antisera against ricefield eel Lhb (Lh beta subunit), Fshb (Fsh beta subunit), and Cga (the common pituitary glycoprotein hormone alpha subunit) were generated, and the cellular(More)
It is clear that significant advances have been made in the understanding of the physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology of airway smooth muscle (ASM) contraction and how the knowledge obtained from these approaches may be used to elucidate the pathogenesis of asthma. Not to belittle other theories of smooth muscle contraction extant in the field,(More)
