YL et al. CASA: A new IFU architecture for power-efficient instruction cache and TLB designs. Abstract The instruction fetch unit (IFU) usually dissipates a considerable portion of total chip power. In traditional IFU architectures, as soon as the fetch address is generated, it needs to be sent to the instruction cache and TLB arrays for instruction fetch.(More)
The observation of helices and coils in nano-tube/-fiber ͑NT/NF͒ syntheses is explained on the basis of the interactions between specific catalyst particles and the growing nanostructure. In addition to rationalizing nonlinear structure, the proposed model probes the interplay between thermodynamic quantities and predicts conditions for optimal growth.(More)
A novel phospholipase B (TLPLB) from Thermotoga lettingae TMO has been cloned, functionally overexpressed in Escherichia coli and purified to homogeneity. Gas chromatography indicated that the enzyme could efficiently hydrolyze both the sn-1 and sn-2 ester bonds of 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl phosphatidylcholine as phospholipase B. TLPLB was optimally active at 70(More)
The aim of this study was to develop an ionic liquid (IL) system for the enzymatic resolution of racemic ibuprofen ethyl ester to produce (S)-ibuprofen. Nineteen ILs were selected for use in buffer systems to investigate the effects of ILs as cosolvents for the production of (S)-ibuprofen using thermostable esterase (EST10) from Thermotoga maritima.(More)
It is well known that the polarization of a linearly polarized (LP) light would rotate after passing through a single layer graphene under the bias of a perpendicular magnetostatic field. Here we show that a corresponding phase shift could be expected for circularly polarized (CP) light, which can be engineered to design the circular polarization sensitive(More)
A novel β-carotene-9,10′-oxygenase (ScBCO2) has been characterized from Saccharomyces cerevisiae ULI3 to convert β-carotene to β-apo-10′-carotenal, which is a precursor of the plant hormone strigolactone. The ScBCO2 enzyme was purified to homogeneity by ammonium sulfate precipitation, Q sepharose and Superdex-200 chromatography. The molecular mass of the(More)
