BACKGROUND Germline-specific differential DNA methylation that persists through fertilization and embryonic development is thought to be the 'imprint' distinguishing the parental alleles of imprinted genes. If such methylation is to work as the imprinting mechanism, however, it has to be reprogrammed following each passage through the germline. Previous(More)
The human L23 (mitochondrial)-related protein gene, located 40 kb downstream of the imprinted H19 gene, is biallelically expressed. We have cloned and characterized its mouse homolog, L23mrp, which maps to the conserved syntenic region on mouse chromosome 7. The promoter of L23mrp is a CpG island that is transcribed ubiquitously, but at different levels, in(More)
The mouse insulin-like growth factor 2 (Igf2) locus is a complex genomic region that produces multiple transcripts from alternative promoters. Expression at this locus is regulated by parental imprinting. However, despite the existence of putative imprinting control elements in the Igf2 upstream region, imprinted transcriptional repression is abolished by(More)
The mouse insulin-like growth factor II gene (Igf2) is physically linked to the insulin II gene (Ins2) and both are subject to tissue-specific genomic imprinting. The paternal-specific expression of Igf2 has been associated with hypermethylation of some CpG sites in the 5' flanking region and in the body of the gene. As a first step in analyzing the(More)
Streptomyces ATP nucleotide 3'-pyrophosphokinase is an extracellular, ribosome-independent, and stringent factor-mimic ppGpp synthetase with an unusually broad acceptor spectrum. The gene-containing DNA fragments cloned from chromosomal DNA of a producer S. morookaensis into pIJ699 and pUC plasmids were found to express the active enzyme in the transformed(More)
—Synchronization is the first operation in a digital baseband receiver. The accuracy of the synchronizer shapes up the performance of the baseband receiver. Synchronization is broadly divided into Carrier Frequency and Phase Synchronization , Symbol Timing and Frame Synchronization. If number of false detections in frame synchronization are high then large(More)
IEEE 802.15.4 takes a center stage in IoT as Low-Rate Wireless Personal Area Networks(LR-WPANs). The standard specifies Offset Quadrature Phase Shift Keying Physical Layer (O-QPSK PHY) with half-sine pulse shaping which can be either categorized under the class of M-ary PSK signals (QPSK signal with offset) or as Minimum Shift Keying (MSK) signal. M-ary PSK(More)
In this study, we propose a novel physical layer architecture which is a hybrid of IEEE 802.15.4 and IEEE 802.11b for providing ubiquitous connectivity in IoT remote sensing platforms. The proposed architecture multiplexes the commonly available functional units of IEEE 802.15.4 and IEEE 802.11b, thereby achieving significant area and power savings. In(More)
