—This paper is concerned with a simple binary erasure-recovery coding scheme that falls into the family of so-called semi-random low-density-parity-check (SR-LDPC) codes. Based on a constrained random-scrambling technique, the proposed coding scheme is systematic, rateless, and capacity-achieving. We provide simulation examples comparing the new scheme with(More)
BACKGROUND Chemokines, a group of small and structurally related proteins, mediate chemotaxis of various cell types via chemokine receptors. In mammals, seven different CXC chemokine receptors denoted as CXCR1 to CXCR7 have been reported. However, the chemokine receptor CXCR5 has not been reported in other vertebrates. RESULTS In the present study, the(More)
In this paper we propose a new class of Fair Exchange Signature Scheme(FESS) that allows two players to exchange digital signatures in a fair way. Our signature scheme is a general idea and has various implementations on most of the existing signature schemes, thus it may also be considered as an interesting extension of concurrent signature presented in(More)
We investigated the effects of CXC137, a tetramethylpyrazine piperazine derivate, on cell damage induced by N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) in human derived neuroblastoma cells (SH-SY5Y) and its effect on memory dysfunction of rats with vascular dementia. It was found that the presence of CXC137 increased SH-SY5Y cells viability by inhibition of cell apoptosis(More)
Cancerous inhibitor of protein phosphatase 2A (CIP2A) is a recently identified human oncoprotein that can stabilize some proteins by inhibiting degradation mediated by protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A), and its level in cancer is associated with resistance to chemotherapy. However, whether CIP2A could increase chemoresistance of prostate cancer (PCa) cells to(More)
