DNA methylation is essential for development in the mouse and plays an important role in inactivation of the X chromosome and genomic imprinting. MeCP2 is the founder member of a family of methyl-CpG-binding proteins. MeCP2 directly binds to the co-repressor mSin3, which interacts with class I histone deacetylase, recruiting them to methyl-CpG regions to(More)
A role of indices of oxidative stress, oxidative injury, and abnormal membrane phospholipid, specifically the phospholipid essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPUFAs) metabolism has been suggested based on studies in separate groups of patients with or without medication. The current study investigated the relationship between these biochemical measures(More)
The objective of the present study was to assess the neuroprotective role of rutin (vitamin P) and delineate the mechanism of action. Recent evidence indicates that rutin exhibits antioxidant potential and protects the brain against various oxidative stressors. More precisely, the aim of the present study was to examine the modulating impacts of rutin(More)
We report the first measurement of charged particle elliptic flow in Pb-Pb collisions at sqrt[S(NN)] =2.76 TeV with the ALICE detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The measurement is performed in the central pseudorapidity region (|η|<0.8) and transverse momentum range 0.2<p t<5.0 GeV/c. The elliptic flow signal v₂, measured using the 4-particle(More)
The N-CoR/SMRT complex containing mSin3 and histone deacetylase (HDAC) mediates transcriptional repression by nuclear hormone receptors and Mad. The proteins encoded by the ski proto-oncogene family directly bind to N-CoR/SMRT and mSin3A, and forms a complex with HDAC. c-Ski and its related gene product Sno are required for transcriptional repression by Mad(More)
In this paper, we describe transformation recipes, which provide a high-level interface to the code transformation and code generation capability of a compiler. These recipes can be generated by compiler decision algorithms or savvy software developers. This interface is part of an auto-tuning framework that explores a set of different implementations of(More)
The first measurement of the charged-particle multiplicity density at midrapidity in Pb-Pb collisions at a center-of-mass energy per nucleon pair √ S NN = 2.76 TeV is presented. For an event sample corresponding to the most central 5% of the hadronic cross section, the pseudorapidity density of primary charged particles at midrapidity is 1584 ± 4(stat) ±(More)
Fusion of the promyelocytic leukemia (PML) protein to the retinoic acid receptor-alpha (RARalpha) generates the transforming protein of acute promyelocytic leukemias. PML appears to be involved in multiple functions, including apoptosis and transcriptional activation by RAR, whereas PML-RARalpha blocks these functions of PML. However, the mechanisms of(More)
This article presents a novel compiler framework for CUDA code generation. The compiler structure is designed to support <i>autotuning</i>, which employs empirical techniques to evaluate a set of alternative mappings of computation kernels and select the mapping that obtains the best performance. This article introduces a <i>Transformation Strategy(More)
