We propose two ALOHA-based Dynamic Framed Slotted ALOHA algorithms (DFSA) using tag estimation method (TEM), which estimates the number of tags around the reader, and dynamic slot allocation (DSA), which dynamically allocates the frame size for the number of tags. We compare the performance of the proposed DFSA with the conventional Framed Slotted ALOHA(More)
We propose the ALOHA-based Dynamic Framed Slotted ALOHA algorithm (DFSA) using proposed Tag Estimation Method (TEM) which estimates the number of tags around the reader. We describe the conventional Tag Estimation Method and Dynamic Slot Allocation (DSA), which is the method to dynamically allocate the frame size according to the number of tags. We compare(More)
The conserved Ipl1 protein kinase is essential for proper chromosome segregation and thus cell viability in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Its human homologue has been implicated in the tumorigenesis of diverse forms of cancer. We show here that sister chromatids that have separated from each other are not properly segregated to opposite poles(More)
A human Elongator complex was purified from HeLa cells and found to be composed of three polypeptides. Human Elongator contains histone acetyltransferase activity with specificity to histone H3 and, to a much lesser extent, to histone H4. Although many reports have suggested a role for the yeast Elongator in transcription elongation through chromatin(More)
In IEEE 802.16 MAC protocol, the performance of the system is affected by the size of the contention period, since bandwidth request messages are collided during a contention period allocated by a bandwidth allocation MAP message. We stochastically analyze the performance of the system to find the optimal size of the contention period in this paper. To(More)
Considerable evidence links urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) bound to its surface receptor (uPAR) with enhanced invasiveness of cancer cells. By blocking uPAR expression in human epidermoid carcinoma cells (HEp3), we have now identified an additional and novel in vivo function for this receptor by showing that receptor-deficient cells enter a state of(More)
The related AP-1 and ATF/CREB families of transcriptional regulatory proteins bind as dimers to overlapping or adjacent DNA half-sites by using a bZIP structural motif. Using genetic selections, we isolated derivatives of yeast GCN4 that affect DNA-binding specificity at particular positions of the AP-1 target sequence. In general, altered DNA-binding(More)
The standard centrifuge is a laboratory instrument widely used by biologists and medical technicians for preparing cell samples. Efforts to automate the operations of concentration, cell separation, and solution exchange that a centrifuge performs in a simpler and smaller platform have had limited success. Here, we present a microfluidic chip that(More)
To complement evidence for nucleoside triphosphate phosphohydrolase (NTPase), RNA helicase, RNA 5' triphosphate phosphohydrolase, and nucleic acid-binding activities by the core shell protein lambda1 of mammalian orthoreoviruses (reoviruses), we determined nucleotide sequences of the lambda1-encoding L3 gene segments from three isolates: type 1 Lang (T1L),(More)
A heterogeneous simulation interoperates a collection of simulators that are developed in different simulation languages and/or environments. Such interoperation requires data exchange and time synchronization between the simulators. This paper develops a heterogeneous simulation framework using DEVS BUS, which is a simulation infrastructure proposed by the(More)
