In order to improve the performance of Least Mean Square (LMS) based system identification of sparse systems, a new adaptive algorithm is proposed which utilizes the sparsity property of such systems. A general approximating approach on l 0 norm – a typical metric of system sparsity, is proposed and integrated into the cost function of the LMS algorithm.(More)

Protein lysine methyltransferases G9a and GLP modulate the transcriptional repression of a variety of genes via dimethylation of Lys9 on histone H3 (H3K9me2) as well as dimethylation of non-histone targets. Here we report the discovery of UNC0638, an inhibitor of G9a and GLP with excellent potency and selectivity over a wide range of epigenetic and(More)
Elucidating the key signal transduction pathways essential for both antipsychotic efficacy and side-effect profiles is essential for developing safer and more effective therapies. Recent work has highlighted noncanonical modes of dopamine D(2) receptor (D(2)R) signaling via β-arrestins as being important for the therapeutic actions of both antipsychotic and(More)
SAR exploration of the 2,4-diamino-6,7-dimethoxyquinazoline template led to the discovery of 8 (UNC0224) as a potent and selective G9a inhibitor. A high resolution X-ray crystal structure of the G9a-8 complex, the first cocrystal structure of G9a with a small molecule inhibitor, was obtained. The cocrystal structure validated our binding hypothesis and will(More)
As one of the recently proposed algorithms for sparse system identification, l 0 norm constraint Least Mean Square (l 0-LMS) algorithm modifies the cost function of the traditional method with a penalty of tap-weight sparsity. The performance of l 0-LMS is quite attractive compared with its various precursors. However, there has been no detailed study of(More)
The small conductance and intermediate conductance Ca(2+)-activated K(+) channels are known to be involved in the endothelium-dependent hyperpolarization. Ca(2+) entry into endothelial cells stimulates these channels, causing membrane hyperpolarization in endothelial cells and underlying smooth muscle cells. In the present study, with the use of(More)
The closely related wild rice species Oryza rufipogon is considered the progenitor of cultivated rice (Oryza sativa). The transition from the characteristic plant architecture of wild rice to that of cultivated rice was one of the most important events in rice domestication; however, the molecular basis of this key domestication transition has not been(More)
Functionally selective G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) ligands, which differentially modulate canonical and noncanonical signaling, are extremely useful for elucidating key signal transduction pathways essential for both the therapeutic actions and side effects of drugs. However, few such ligands have been created, and very little purposeful attention has(More)
Numerous receptors for ATP, ADP, and adenosine exist; however, it is currently unknown whether a receptor for the related nucleotide adenosine 5'-monophosphate (AMP) exists. Using a novel cell-based assay to visualize adenosine receptor activation in real time, we found that AMP and a non-hydrolyzable AMP analog (deoxyadenosine 5'-monophosphonate, ACP)(More)
