—Data deduplication is a technique for eliminating duplicate copies of data, and has been widely used in cloud storage to reduce storage space and upload bandwidth. Promising as it is, an arising challenge is to perform secure deduplication in cloud storage. Although convergent encryption has been extensively adopted for secure deduplication, a critical(More)
As cloud computing becomes prevalent, more and more sensitive data is being centralized into the cloud for sharing, which brings forth new challenges for outsourced data security and privacy. Attribute-based encryption (ABE) is a promising cryptographic primitive, which has been widely applied to design fine-grained access control system recently. However,(More)
—Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) which simplifies the public key and certificate management at Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is an important alternative to public key encryption. However, one of the main efficiency drawbacks of IBE is the overhead computation at Private Key Generator (PKG) during user revocation. Efficient revocation has been well studied(More)
AIM To study the effects of Claulansine F (Clau F), a carbazole alkaloid isolated from the stem of Clausena lansium (Lour) Skeels, on neuritogenesis of PC12 cells, and to elucidate the mechanism of action. METHODS Neuritogenesis of PC12 cells was quantified under an inverted microscope. Expression of the neurite outgrowth marker GAP-43 was detected using(More)
—Big data benchmark suites must include a diversity of data and workloads to be useful in fairly evaluating big data systems and architectures. However, using truly comprehensive benchmarks poses great challenges for the architecture community. First, we need to thoroughly understand the behaviors of a variety of workloads. Second, our usual(More)
With the advent of time-dependent thrombolytic therapy for ischemic stroke, it has become increasingly important to differentiate transient ischemic attack (TIA) from minor stroke patients after symptom onset quickly. This study investigated the difference between TIA and minor stroke based on age, blood pressure, clinical features, duration of TIA,(More)
Inflammation is an important contributing mechanism in ischemic brain injury. The current study elucidates a previously unexplored role of Fas ligand (FasL) in post-stroke inflammatory responses that is independent of its well-known effect in triggering apoptosis. Focal cerebral ischemia was induced for 2 h by right middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO)(More)
—Hadoop distributed file system (HDFS) becomes a representative cloud storage platform, benefiting from its reliable, scalable and low-cost storage capability. HDFS has been utilized in BlueSky, one of the most prevalent e-Learning resource sharing systems in China, to store and share courseware majorly in the form of PowerPoint (PPT) files and video clips.(More)
