-Flash Translation Layer (FTL) is one of the most important components of SSD, whose main purpose is to perform logical to physical address translation in a way that is suitable to the unique physical characteristics of the Flash memory technology. The pure page-mapping FTL scheme, arguably the best FTL scheme due to its ability to map any logical page(More)
Patients with neonatal severe hyperparathyroidism (NSHPT) are homozygous for the calcium-sensing receptor (CaR) mutation and have very high circulating PTH, abundant parathyroid hyperplasia, and severe life-threatening hypercalcemia. Mice with homozygous deletion of CaR mimic the syndrome of NSHPT. To determine effects of CaR deficiency on skeletal(More)
In backup systems, the chunks of each backup are physically scattered after deduplication, which causes a challenging fragmentation problem. We observe that the fragmentation comes into sparse and out-of-order containers. The sparse container decreases restore performance and garbage collection efficiency, while the out-of-order container decreases restore(More)
Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and coronary artery disease (CAD) are both characterized by chronic low-grade inflammation. The role of Th17 and its related cytokines in T2DM and CAD is unclear. Here we investigated the serum levels of five Th17-related cytokines (IL-17, IL-22, MIP-3α, IL-9, and IL-27) in T2DM, CAD, and T2DM-CAD comorbidity patients. IL-22(More)
Object-oriented storage system is a distributed storage systems with a storage device directly connected to the network. In existing encryption schemes the protection of the sensitive data is achieved mainly through an encrypted data storage system, but the encryption key is protected only by a weak password. This is a security risk to storage system, so(More)
Phase Change Memory (PCM) is one of the promising memory technologies but suffers from some critical problems such as poor write performance and high write energy consumption. Due to the high write energy consumption and limited power supply, the size of concurrent bit-write is restricted inside one PCM chip. Typically, the size of concurrent bit-write is(More)
To determine whether the calcium-sensing receptor (CaR) participates in tooth formation and dental alveolar bone development in mandibles in vivo, we examined these processes, as well as mineralization, in 2-week-old CaR-knockout (CaR(-/-)) mice. We also attempted to rescue the phenotype of CaR(-/-) mice by genetic means, in mice doubly homozygous for CaR(More)
Osteoporosis is a common disorder characterized by compromised bone strength that predisposes patients to increased fracture risk. Parathyroid hormone related protein (PTHrP) is one of the candidates for clinical osteoporosis treatment. In this study, GST Gene Fusion System was used to express recombinant human PTHrP (hPTHrP) 1-34 and 1-84. To determine(More)
Although the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR) and parathyroid hormone (PTH) may each exert skeletal effects, it is uncertain how CaSR and PTH interact at the level of bone in primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). Therefore, we simulated PHPT with 2 wk of continuous PTH infusion in adult mice with deletion of the PTH gene (Pth(-/-) mice) and with deletion of(More)
Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease mediated by innate and adaptive immune responses. In recent years, CD4(+) T cells (Th1, Th2, Treg, and Th17) have been increasingly studied for their role in atherosclerosis pathophysiology, atheroma stability, plaque rupture, and life-threatening acute coronary syndrome. IL-17, a marker cytokine of Th17(More)
