The advances in computing and communication technologies and software tools have resulted in an explosive growth in networked applications and information services that cover all aspects of our life. These services and applications are inherently complex, dynamic and heterogeneous. In a similar way, the underlying information infrastructure, e.g. the(More)
p53 inactivation is a hallmark in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). It is therefore highly desirable to develop tumor-specific treatment for NSCLC therapy by restoring p53 function. Herein, a novel naphthalimide compound, NA-17, was identified as a promising drug candidate in view of both its anticancer activity and mechanism of action. NA-17 exhibited(More)
The emergence of the computational Grid and the potential for seamless aggregation, integration and interactions has made it possible to conceive a new generation of realistic, scientific and engineering simulations of complex physical phenomena. The inherently heterogeneous and dynamic nature of these application and the Grid presents significant runtime(More)
Summary form only given. Dynamic structured adaptive mesh refinement (SAMR) techniques along with the emergence of the computational grid offer the potential for realistic scientific and engineering simulations of complex physical phenomena. However, the inherent dynamic nature of SAMR applications coupled with the heterogeneity and dynamism of the(More)

For adaptive distributed applications, the computational complexity associated with each computational region varies continuously and dramatically both in space and time throughout the life cycle of the application execution. Consequently, static scheduling techniques are inefficient for such applications. In this paper, we present an autonomic runtime(More)
Previous studies have shown that Streptococcus oligofermentans inhibits the growth of cariogenic Streptococcus mutans in biofilms in vitro and is considered a probiotic candidate for caries prevention. This study aimed to examine the effects of various environmental factors on the competition between S. oligofermentans and S. mutans in a dual-species(More)
Large-scale distributed applications are highly adaptive and heterogeneous in terms of their computational requirements. The computational complexity associated with each computational region or domain varies continuously and dramatically both in space and time throughout the whole life cycle of the application execution. Consequently, static scheduling(More)
OBJECTIVE Monocytes/macrophages play a key role in mobilizing host defense against microbial infection. The selectivity of gene expression can turn macrophages into M1- or M2-type and the plasticity and differentiation of both M1 and M2 macrophages may play important roles in the development of periodontal disease. Our research aimed to study the(More)
