Intermale offensive aggressive behavior is facilitated by gonadal steroids and inhibited by serotonin (5-HT), presumably through its effects at 5-HT1A and 5-HT1B receptor sites. To examine the interaction between these neuroendocrine and neurochemical regulatory systems, CF-1 male mice were gonadectomized and implanted with silastic capsules containing(More)
Parkin belongs to a class of multiple RING domain proteins designated as RBR (RING, in between RING, RING) proteins. In this review we examine what is known regarding the structure/function relationship of the Parkin protein. Parkin contains three RING domains plus a ubiquitin-like domain and an in-between-RING (IBR) domain. RING domains are rich in(More)
The wild-type p53-induced phosphatase 1 (WIP1) is a serine/threonine phosphatase that negatively regulates multiple proteins involved in DNA damage response including p53, CHK2, Histone H2AX, and ATM, and it has been shown to be overexpressed or amplified in human cancers including breast and ovarian cancers. We examined WIP1 mRNA levels across multiple(More)
Plasmids are widely distributed in different sources of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) as self-replicating extrachromosomal genetic materials, and have received considerable attention due to their close relationship with many important functions as well as some industrially relevant characteristics of the LAB species. They are interesting with regard to the(More)
Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) are chiefly characterized by their ability to self-renew and to differentiate into any cell type derived from the three main germ layers. It was demonstrated that somatic cells could be reprogrammed to form induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) via various strategies. Gene editing is a technique that can be used to make targeted(More)
An effective representation of a protein sequence plays a crucial role in protein sub-nuclear localization. The existing representations, such as dipeptide composition (DipC), pseudo-amino acid composition (PseAAC) and position specific scoring matrix (PSSM), are insufficient to represent protein sequence due to their single perspectives. Thus, this paper(More)
Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) have recently gained attention because of their involvement in different biological processes. An increasing number of studies have demonstrated that mutations or abnormal expression of ncRNAs are closely associated with various diseases including cancer. The present review is a comprehensive examination of the aberrant regulation(More)
ATP hydrolysis and synthesis by the F(0)F(1)-ATP synthase are coupled to proton translocation across the membrane in the presence of magnesium. Calcium is known, however, to disrupt this coupling in the photosynthetic enzyme in a unique way: it does not support ATP synthesis, and CaATP hydrolysis is decoupled from any proton translocation, but the membrane(More)
The research of energy storage systems in the DC link of a machine tool is focused on the choice of the appropriate type of the energy storage system (passive or active) and its control strategy considering better energy efficiency. For the control strategy of the DC/DC converter two ways were taken into account: the proportional-integral and predictive(More)
The development approach for an energy storage system focuses on optimal sized double-layer capacitor modules to reduce peak power and to avoid malfunctions of production machinery caused by voltage interruptions. The required kind of charging for the energy storage system and adjustment of voltage control parameters was executed for line-side converters of(More)
