The broad family of LEA proteins are intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) with several potential roles in desiccation tolerance, or anhydrobiosis, one of which is to limit desiccation-induced aggregation of cellular proteins. We show here that this activity, termed molecular shield function, is distinct from that of a classical molecular chaperone, such(More)
The significant role of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in various cellular functions, such as gene imprinting, immune response, embryonic pluripotency, tumorogenesis, and genetic regulations, has been widely studied and reported in recent years. Several experimental and computational methods involving genome-wide search and screenings of ncRNAs are being(More)
The cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR) is a cyclic-AMP dependent chloride channel expressed at the apical surface of epithelial cells lining various organs such as the respiratory tract. Defective processing and functioning of this protein caused by mutations in the CFTR gene results in loss of ionic balance, defective mucus clearance, increased(More)
Scalable Image Communication is useful in multiuser heterogenous environments. In this project, we plan to implement an unequal error protection method for Embedded Foveation Image Coding (EFIC) compressed images, using rate compatible punctured turbo codes. Different portions of the bitstream are protected unequally, based on the importance of data to the(More)
Turbo codes are used for error protection, esp. in wireless systems. A turbo encoder consists of two recursive systematic convolutional component encoders connected in parallel and separated by a random interleaver. A turbo de-coder, which is iterative, is typically based on either a Soft Output Viterbi Algorithm (SOVA) or a maximum a posteri (MAP)(More)
