BACKGROUND Amyloid plaques, a pathological hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD), are accompanied by activated microglia. The role of activated microglia in the pathogenesis of AD remains controversial: either clearing Aβ deposits by phagocytosis or releasing proinflammatory cytokines and cytotoxic substances. Microglia can be activated via toll-like(More)
— A vast amount of broadcasting protocols has been developed for wireless ad hoc networks. To the best of our knowledge, however, these protocols assume a single-radio single-channel and single-rate network model and/or a generalized physical model, which does not take into account the impact of interference. In this paper, we present a set of broadcasting(More)
In this talk, Dr. Min Song will explore one national technological priority, Wireless Innovation and Infrastructure Initiative, and present some NSF programs that are closely related to wireless networking research and education. Radio spectrum is a finite but exceedingly valuable natural resource that facilitates a tremendous variety of wireless(More)
This article summarizes the proceedings of a symposium held at the conference on "Alcoholism and Stress: A Framework for Future Treatment Strategies" in Volterra, Italy, May 6-9, 2008. Chaired by Markus Heilig and Roberto Ciccocioppo, this symposium offered a forum for the presentation of recent data linking neuropetidergic neurotransmission to the(More)
1 Abstract—Protein-protein interaction network study has attracted a lot of attention from bioinformatics community because it is essential to understand the fundamental processes that govern cell biology. However, most of the protein-protein interaction information relevant to cell biology research still exists only in biomedical literature, which is(More)
—Recently, novel recommender systems have attracted considerable attention in the research community. Recommending popular items may not always satisfy users. For example, although most users likely prefer popular items, such items are often not very surprising or novel because users may already know about the items. Also, such recommender systems hardly(More)
BACKGROUND Side effects are unwanted responses to drug treatment and are important resources for human phenotype information. The recent development of a database on side effects, the side effect resource (SIDER), is a first step in documenting the relationship between drugs and their side effects. It is, however, insufficient to simply find the association(More)
miR-34a functions as an important tumor suppressor during the process of carcinogenesis. However, the mechanism of miR-34a dysregulation in human malignancies has not been well elucidated. Our study aimed to further investigate the regulation mechanism of miR-34a. We found that overexpression of NF-kappa B p65 subunit could increase miR-34a levels in EC109,(More)
