Glutamate receptor phosphorylation has been implicated in several forms of modulation of synaptic transmission. It has been reported that protein kinase A (PKA) can phosphorylate the alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionate (AMPA) receptor subunit GluR4 on Ser842, both in vitro and in vivo. Here, we studied the regulation of GluR4(More)
— This paper investigates the fairness problem in all-optical networks without wavelength conversion under dynamic traffic loads. We propose a new classification strategy to mitigate the fairness problem called Fair-Fit. Our strategy is based on previous simulation studies that are carried out off-line. In addition, we introduce an equation that allows one(More)
This paper proposes the use of Bayesian networks to support the decision-making process in public health systems. In particular, this paper presents LARIISA_Bay, a new component based on Bayesian networks that works together with LARIISA, a context-aware platform to support applications in public health systems. The main goal of the proposed component is to(More)
This paper describes and evaluates the performance of three dedicated path protection schemes (Two Step, Two Step with backtracking and One Step) for all-optical networks , operating with full conversion and the main wavelength assignment algorithms (Random, First-Fit and Most Used) under different network topologies. Further, this work evaluates the impact(More)
