Argonaute (AGO) proteins recruit small RNAs to form the core of RNAi effector complexes. Arabidopsis encodes ten AGO proteins and a large network of small RNAs. How these small RNAs are sorted into specific AGO complexes remains largely unknown. We have cataloged small RNAs resident in four AGO complexes. We found that AGO2 and AGO4 preferentially recruit(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small silencing RNAs with regulatory roles in gene expression. miRNAs interact with Argonaute (AGO) proteins to form effector complexes that cleave target mRNAs or repress translation. Rice (Oryza sativa) encodes four AGO1 homologs (AGO1a, AGO1b, AGO1c, and AGO1d). We used RNA interference (RNAi) to knock down the four AGO1s. The RNAi(More)
In plants, the known microRNAs (miRNAs) are produced as approximately 21 nucleotide (nt) duplexes from their precursors by Dicer-like 1 (DCL1). They are incorporated into Argonaute 1 (AGO1) protein to regulate target gene expression primarily through mRNA cleavage. We report here the discovery of a class of miRNAs in the model monocot rice (Oryza sativa).(More)
The data that the Internet of Things(IOT) produced is fuzzy and enormous, and the Complex Events Processing(CEP) which is the key part of the Internet of Things need to meet the big data's quantity and complexity. In CEP, how to describe the context and infer from the context is the most important, and in this paper, a fuzzy D-S theory and fuzzy ontology(More)
BACKGROUND Six asthma candidate genes, ADAM33, NPSR1, PHF11, DPP10, HLA-G, and CYFIP2, located at different chromosome regions have been positionally cloned following the reported linkage studies. For ADAM33, NPSR1, and CYFIP2, the associations with asthma or asthma-related phenotypes have been studied in East Asian populations such as Chinese and Japanese.(More)
With huge amount of observed air quality and components data, it is of great challenge to analyze and trace the pollutant diffusion path. Partitioning the air pollution sources (air quality observation stations) into subnetworks will help a lot in tracing the air pollution diffusion path. Conventional air pollution sources clustering methods, which are(More)
