Firmware update over a network connection is an essential but expensive feature for many embedded systems due to the relatively high power consumption and limited bandwidth. This work proposes a page-level, link-time technique that minimizes not only the size of patching scripts but also perturbation to the firmware memory, over the entire sequence of(More)
Gram-negative bacteria expel a wide range of toxic substances through tripartite drug efflux pumps consisting of an inner membrane transporter, an outer membrane channel protein, and a periplasmic adaptor protein. These pumps form tripartite assemblies which can span the entire cell envelope, including the inner and outer membranes. There have been(More)
Preventing unexpected explosive attacks and tracing explosion-related molecules require the development of highly sensitive gas-vapor detection systems. For that purpose, a micromechanical cantilever-based olfactory sensing system including a sample preconcentrator was developed to detect 2,4-dinitrotoluene (2,4-DNT), which is a well-known by-product of the(More)
K-Ras mutation is detected in over 30% of human malignancies. In particular, 90% of human pancreatic cancers are initiated by K-Ras mutation. Thus, selective elimination of K-Ras mutated cells would be a plausible strategy to prevent or cure the malignancies. In our previous reports, it has been revealed that oncogenic K-Ras promotes the exocytosis of p53(More)
Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is an essential cytokine for the migration of monocytes into vessels, and is also involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. In this study, we investigated the importance of janus kinase 2 (JAK2) and the function of the Akt and glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK3β) pathway in toll-like receptor (TLR2)-mediated(More)
Traditional OCR uses binarization technique, which makes OCR simple. But it makes strokes ambiguous and that causes recognition errors. Main reason of those errors is similar grapheme pair confusing error. It can be reduced by verifying ambiguous area of gray level image. After checking whether there is similar grapheme pair by analyzing traditional OCR(More)
The universal stress proteins (USP) family member UspE is a tandem-type USP that consists of two Usp domains. The UspE expression levels of the Escherichia coli (E. coli) become elevated in response to oxidative stress and DNA damaging agents, including exposure to mitomycin C, cadmium, and hydrogen peroxide. It has been shown that UspA family members are(More)
Given that reduced graphene oxide (rGO)-based biosensors allow disposable and repeatable biomarker detection at the point of care, we developed a wafer-scale rGO patterning method with mass productivity, uniformity, and high resolution by conventional micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) techniques. Various rGO patterns were demonstrated with dimensions(More)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) plays a critical role in cognitive processes including learning and memory. However, it has been difficult to detect BDNF in the brains of behaving animals because of its extremely low concentration, i.e., at the sub-nanogram/mL level. Here, we developed an interdigitated microelectrode (IME) biosensor coated with an(More)
The detection of biomarkers in the liquid phase using mechanical sensors is difficult because of noise caused by the liquid. To reduce and verify the side effects of liquid loading, we performed calculations and experiments to determine the shift in resonant frequency according to the loading conditions. A 2-μm-thick piezoelectric rectangular(More)
