Penicillium digitatum is one of the most destructive postharvest pathogen of citrus fruits, causing fruit decay and economic loss. The emergence of fungicide-resistant strains made the control of P. digitatum more difficult. While the genome of P. digitatum is available, there has been few reports about its resistant mechanism from the transcriptome(More)
The paper presents a service composition language called VINCA, which differs from many existing ones in its emphasis on enabling business users to visually " program " from business viewpoint their personalized applications on the basis of Web-based services. VINCA embodies an integrated approach to mediating between diverse, rapidly changing user(More)
DNA mismatch repair enzymes (for example, MSH2) maintain genomic integrity, and their deficiency predisposes to several human cancers and to drug resistance. We found that leukemia cells from a substantial proportion of children (∼11%) with newly diagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukemia have low or undetectable MSH2 protein levels, despite abundant wild-type(More)
With the massive deployment of mobile devices and sensor networks, resistance against side-channel attacks in cryptographic systems has become an active research topic in recent years. While various security measures exist in literature, most of them are deterministic in nature, where the same input plaintext always results in the same power trace with a(More)
Retention registers have been widely used in power gated design to store data during sleep mode. Since they consume much larger area and power than normal registers, it is imperative to minimize the total retention storage size. The current industry practice only replace all registers with single-bit retention ones, which significantly limits the design(More)
—The lack of accurate yet open to public simulation infrastructure has puzzled researchers in the memcomputing area for sometime. In this paper, we propose for the first time a full tool chain called MSim that supports the cycle-accurate microarchitecture level simulation for memcomputing studies. With MSim, the performance gains of utilizing memcomputing(More)
INTRODUCTION Cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) is a major non-collagenous component of cartilage. Earlier, we developed a new mouse model for rheumatoid arthritis using COMP. This study was undertaken to investigate the epitope specificity and immunopathogenicity of COMP-specific monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). METHODS B cell immunodominant regions(More)
INTRODUCTION Cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) is a homopentameric protein in cartilage. The development of arthritis, like collagen-induced arthritis (CIA), involves cartilage as a target tissue. We have investigated the development of CIA in COMP-deficient mice. METHODS COMP-deficient mice in the 129/Sv background were backcrossed for 10(More)
