To maintain genome stability, DNA replication is strictly regulated to occur only once per cell cycle. In eukaryotes, the presence of 'licensing proteins' at replication origins during the G1 cell-cycle phase allows the formation of the pre-replicative complex. The removal of licensing proteins from chromatin during the S phase ensures that origins fire(More)
The human cullin protein CUL-2 functions in a ubiquitin-ligase complex with the von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) tumour suppressor protein. Here we show that, in Caenorhabditis elegans, cul-2 is expressed in proliferating cells and is required at two distinct points in the cell cycle, the G1-to-S-phase transition and mitosis. cul-2 mutant germ cells undergo a(More)
Cullin-RING ubiquitin ligases (CRLs) are critical regulators of multiple developmental and cellular processes in eukaryotes. CAND1 is a biochemical inhibitor of CRLs, yet has been shown to promote CRL activity in plant and mammalian cells. Here we analyze CAND1 function in the context of a developing metazoan organism. Caenorhabditis elegans CAND-1 is(More)
The orange inner leaf of the Chinese cabbage is controlled by a single recessive gene (or), which causes abnormal accumulation of carotene. In the present study, an F2 population consisting of 600 individuals was used for mapping or and developing new markers closely linked to this gene. Bulked segregant analysis was performed by screening 435 simple(More)
Person re-identification has been widely studied due to its importance in surveillance and forensics applications. In practice, gallery images are high resolution (HR), while probe images are usually low resolution (LR) in the identification scenarios with large variation of illumination, weather, or quality of cameras. Person re-identification in this kind(More)
Scratchpad memory (SPM), a fast on-chip SRAM managed by software, is widely used in embedded systems. This article introduces a general-purpose compiler approach, called memory coloring, to assign static data aggregates, such as arrays and structs, in a program to an SPM. The novelty of this approach lies in partitioning the SPM into a pseudo--register file(More)
Purpose – This study seeks to extend the resource-based view to the context of customer relationship management. It is intended to develop a measurement model of customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities, and to explore the key antecedents and performance consequences of CRM capabilities. Design/methodology/approach – Questionnaire survey was used(More)
Protein kinase D (PKD) mediates signal transduction downstream from phospholipase C and diacylglycerol (DAG). PKDs are activated by hormones and stress in cell lines, but little is known about PKD functions and regulation in vivo. Here, we show that DKF-2, a C. elegans PKD, regulates innate immunity. Animals lacking DKF-2 were hypersensitive to killing by(More)
This paper investigates simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT) in K-user multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) interference channels. In particular, the power splitting (PS) technique is leveraged at each receiver to divide the received signal into two flows, for information decoding (ID) and energy harvesting (EH), respectively. As a(More)
The genic multiple-allele inherited male-sterile gene Ms in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa L.) was identified as a spontaneous mutation. Applying this gene to hybrid seed production, several B. rapa cultivars have been successfully bred in China. A BC1 population (244 plants) was constructed for mapping the Ms gene. Screening 268 simple sequence repeat(More)
