It is often impossible to obtain a one-size-fits-all solution for high performance algorithms when considering different choices for data distributions, parallelism, transformations, and blocking. The best solution to these choices is often tightly coupled to different architectures, problem sizes, data, and available system resources. In some cases,(More)
TaintTrace is a high performance flow tracing tool that protects systems against security exploits. It is based on dynamic execution binary rewriting empowering our tool with fine-grained monitoring of system activities such as the tracking of the usage and propagation of data originated from the network. The challenge lies in minimizing the run-time(More)
Dynamic instrumentation systems are gaining popularity as means of constructing customized program profiling and analysis tools. However, dynamic instrumentation based analysis tools still suffer from performance problems. The overhead of such systems can be broken down into two components - the overhead of dynamic instrumentation and the time consumed in(More)
Using a maskless photolithography method, we produced DNA oligonucleotide microarrays with probe sequences tiled throughout the genome of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana. RNA expression was determined for the complete nuclear, mitochondrial, and chloroplast genomes by tiling 5 million 36-mer probes. These probes were hybridized to labeled mRNA isolated from(More)
ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters, composed of importers and exporters, form one of the biggest protein superfamilies that transport a variety of substrates across the membrane, powered by ATP hydrolysis. Most ABC transporters are composed of two transmembrane domains and two cytoplasmic nucleotide-binding domains. Also, importers from prokaryotes(More)
BACKGROUND Adiponectin, leptin, resistin, and visfatin, as the main circulating peptides secreted by adipose tissue, are potential contributors to bone metabolism. We investigated whether these serum adipocytokines levels are associated with BMD and bone turnover biochemical markers in 232 Chinese men (20-80 y). METHODS Serum adiponectin, leptin,(More)
Mitochondrial division inhibitor (mdivi-1) is a derivative of quinazolinone that acts as a selective inhibitor of a mitochondrial fission protein Drp1. A previous study demonstrated that as a selective inhibitor of Drp1, mdivi-1 has a protective effect in an experimental model of heart ischemia/reperfusion injury. In this study, we investigated the(More)
Maternally expressed 3 (MEG3) is a long non-coding RNA that can activate p53 and inhibit tumorigenesis and progression of various types of cancers. However, the role of MEG3 in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is still unknown. The aim of the present study was to confirm whether MEG3 is downregulated in human EOC, determine its possible mechanism of action(More)
