Rice is a staple crop that has undergone substantial phenotypic and physiological changes during domestication. Here we resequenced the genomes of 40 cultivated accessions selected from the major groups of rice and 10 accessions of their wild progenitors (Oryza rufipogon and Oryza nivara) to >15 × raw data coverage. We investigated genome-wide variation(More)
Recent baby formula milk powder contamination incidents have shown that the classic markers or standards in milk quality control are insufficient in identifying "manipulated" poor-quality milk. In the present study, we demonstrated for the first time that cow milk contains large amounts of microRNAs (miRNAs) and that the unique expression profile of(More)
Accumulating evidence has shown that dysfunctional mitochondria can be selectively removed by mitophagy. Dysregulation of mitophagy is implicated in the development of neurodegenerative disease and metabolic disorders. How individual mitochondria are recognized for removal and how this process is regulated remain poorly understood. Here we report that(More)
Adaptive resource allocation for multimedia quality of service (QoS) support in broadband wireless networks is examined in this work. A service model consisting of three service classes with different handoff-dropping requirements is presented. Appropriate call-admission control and resource-reservation schemes are developed to allocate resources adaptively(More)
Relay enhanced cellular network has been proposed as a promising solution for the next generation wireless system. Based on an appropriate frame structure for such OFDMA based relay network, round-robin algorithm is extended as a performance benchmark. Two special algorithms (greedy polling and partial proportional fair) are proposed for adaptive resource(More)
During carcinoma progression, tumor cells often undergo changes similar (but not identical) to epithelialmesenchymal transitions in embryonic development. In this study, we demonstrate that experimental stimulation of hyaluronan synthesis in normal epithelial cells is sufficient to induce mesenchymal and transformed characteristics. Using recombinant(More)
The MUC1 transforming protein is overexpressed by most human carcinomas. The present studies demonstrate that the MUC1 C-terminal subunit (MUC1 C-ter) localizes to mitochondria in HCT116/MUC1 colon carcinoma cells and that heregulin stimulates mitochondrial targeting of MUC1 C-ter. We also show that MUC1 attenuates cisplatin-induced (1) release of(More)
The rapid synthesis of heat shock proteins (Hsps) in cells subjected to environmental challenge is controlled by heat shock transcription factor-1 (Hsf1). Regulation of Hsps by Hsf1 is highly complex and, in the whole organism, remains largely unexplored. In this study, we have used mouse embryo fibroblasts and bone marrow progenitor cells from hsf1-/- mice(More)
OBJECTIVE The study compared the efficacy of 2 behavioral interventions to ameliorate organization, time management, and planning (OTMP) difficulties in 3rd- to 5th-grade children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). METHOD In a dual-site randomized controlled trial, 158 children were assigned to organizational skills training (OST; N =(More)
Activation of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) receptor 3 (FGFR3) has been linked to the development of human cancers by mechanisms that are not well understood. The MUC1 oncoprotein is aberrantly overexpressed by certain hematologic malignancies and most human carcinomas. The present studies show that MUC1 associates with FGFR3. Stimulation of cells with(More)
