Hexokinase (HXK, EC 2.7.1.1) plays an important role in the metabolism and glucose signalling. To examine the characteristics of HXK gene family in rice, the subcellular localizations of ten hexokinases (OsHXK1 — OsHXK10) were determined using OsHXK::GFP fusion proteins in tobacco mesophyll protoplasts. As was previously demonstrated, OsHXK4 was detected in(More)
An approach to self reference image watermarking scheme based on Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) and Singular Value Decomposition (SVD). First, the original image is segmented into blocks by using ZIG ZAG sequence. Then find the edges in each block and kept a threshold on these number of edges in each block. Using this threshold, get the essential blocks. A(More)

Plant microRNAs modulate diverse developmental processes by regulating expression of their target genes. To explore potential miRNA-guided gene regulation in developing rice (Oryza sativa L.) caryopses, a miRNA microarray was used to identify miRNAs present at the different developmental stages. We found that 27 miRNAs, of which 16 were conserved miRNAs,(More)
Soil amendment with manure compost may influence environmental behaviors and bioavailability of toxic organic chemicals (e.g. pesticide and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons). Dynamic parameters like adsorption, kinetics, mobility and degradation of pesticides have been intensively investigated. However, the current methods to evaluate the ultimate real(More)
Hearing Loss is one of the three most common chronic conditions among the elderly. In many cases, an individuals hearing is only impaired at certain (not all) frequencies. Analog hearing aids boost all sound frequencies equally including frequencies in which the individuals hearing is good, causing discomfort to the user. Digital hearing aids can amplify(More)
A verified/predictive finite element modeling scheme for flip-chip on a fine pitch flex substrate is presented. The scheme is based on the conventional local/global modeling approach to handle complicated three dimensional structures with fine features of interest, but a new formulation is introduced to be able to evaluate time-dependent non-linear stresses(More)
