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)
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 underlying Grid environment(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)
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)
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)
Condensation between unprotected aldoses and dibenzoylmethane catalyzed by NaHCO(3) in the cosolvents EtOH and H(2)O (4:1) under microwave irradiation gave aryl ketone β-C-glycosides 6b-i in higher yields (from 50% with C-riboside 6g up to 99% with C-glucoside 6b) and better anomeric selectivities (β-configuration >95%) in a shorter reaction time (90 min),(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to analyze and compare the expression patterns of human β-defensin-4 (hBD-4) with those of hBD-1, hBD-2, and hBD-3 in healthy and chronically inflamed gingival tissues. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 96 gingival samples were collected, comprising 46 biopsies from chronic periodontitis (CP) patients and 50 from(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)
