Coupling effects between on-chip interconnects must be addressed in ultra deep submicron VLSI and system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs. A new low-power bus encoding scheme is proposed to minimize coupled switchings which dominate the on-chip bus power consumption. The coupling-driven bus invert method use slim encoder and decoder architecture to minimize the(More)
GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) is a four carbon non-protein amino acid that is widely distributed in plants, animals and microorganisms. As a metabolic product of plants and microorganisms produced by the decarboxylation of glutamic acid, GABA functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain that directly affects the personality and the stress(More)
Deubiquitinating enzymes regulate a number of cellular mechanisms including pre-implantation, growth and differentiation, oncogenesis, cell cycle progression, transcriptional activation, and signal transduction. In this study, we have identified a novel human deubiquitinating enzyme gene, USP22, and its mouse homologue, Usp22. They encode 525 amino acids(More)
Plants respond to pathogens by regulating a network of signaling pathways that fine-tune transcriptional activation of defense-related genes. The aim of this study was to determine the role of Capsicum annuum WRKY zinc finger-domain transcription factor 1 (CaWRKY1) in defense. In previous studies, CaWRKY1 was found to be rapidly induced in C. annuum (chili(More)
Recognition of phosphorylated serine/threonine-containing motifs by 14-3-3 depends on the dimerization of 14-3-3. However, the molecular cues that control 14-3-3 dimerization are not well understood. In order to identify proteins that control 14-3-3 dimerization, we analyzed proteins that have effects on 14-3-3 dimerization and report that protein kinase A(More)
There is no dedicated database available for Expressed Sequence Tags (EST) of the chili pepper (Capsicum annuum), although the interest in a chili pepper EST database is increasing internationally due to the nutritional, economic, and pharmaceutical value of the plant. Recent advances in high-throughput sequencing of the ESTs of chili pepper cv. Bukang have(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the insulin receptor (INSR) gene that have significant associations with pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in a Korean population. DESIGN Case-control study. SETTING University-based hospital. PATIENT(S) 134 patients with PCOS and 100 healthy women as controls.(More)
SDS3 is a key component of the histone deacetylase (HDAC)-dependent Sin3A co-repressor complex, serving to maintain its HDAC activity. Here, we report both exogenous and endogenous functional interaction between deubiquitinating enzyme USP17 and human SDS3 by MALDI-TOF-MS, co-immunoprecipitation assay, and GST pull-down assay. In this study, we demonstrated(More)
