1 Abstract If C is a q-ary code of length n and a and b are two codewords, then c is called a descendant of a and b if c i 2 fa i ; b i g for i = 1; : : : ; n. We are interested in codes C with the property that, given any descendant c, one can always identify at least one of thèparent' codewords in C. We study bounds on F (n; q), the maximal cardinality of(More)
Protein tau filaments in brain of patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, and other tauopathies consist of protein tau that is hyperphosphorylated. The responsible kinases operating in vivo in neurons still need to be identified. Here we demonstrate that glycogen synthase kinase-3beta (GSK-3beta) is an effective kinase for(More)
We have shown previously that the betagamma subunits of the heterotrimeric G proteins regulate the organization of the pericentriolarly localized Golgi stacks. In this report, evidence is presented that the downstream target of Gbetagamma is protein kinase D (PKD), an isoform of protein kinase C. PKD, unlike other members of this class of serine/threonine(More)
A recent publication introduced a Visual Crypto (VC) system, based on the polarisation of light. This VC system has good resolution, contrast and colour properties. Mathematically, the VC system is described by the XOR operation (modulo two addition). In this paper we investigate Threshold Visual Secret Sharing schemes associated to XOR-based VC systems.(More)
