BACKGROUND Both animals and plants respond rapidly to pathogens by inducing the expression of defense-related genes. Whether such an inducible system of innate immunity is present in the model nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is currently an open question. Among conserved signaling pathways important for innate immunity, the Toll pathway is the best(More)
BACKGROUND During mouse prenatal development, the neighbouring insulin-like growth factor II (Igf2) and H19 loci are expressed monoallelically from the paternal and maternal alleles, respectively. Identical spatiotemporal expression patterns and enhancer deletion experiments show that the Igf2 and H19 genes share a common set of enhancers. Deletion of a(More)
—Because of unavoidable wireless packet losses and inapplicability of retransmission-based schemes due to the well-known negative acknowledgment implosion problem, providing high quality video multicast over wireless wide area networks (WWAN) remains difficult. Traditional joint source/channel coding (JSCC) schemes for video multicast target a chosen(More)
