A putative high-affinity phosphate (Pi) transporter gene in rice (Oryza sativa), OsLPT1, was isolated by RT-PCR from the leaves of the plants. The 1635-bp nucleotide sequence of OsLPT1 spans an open reading frame encoding a polypeptide of 535 amino acids with sequence similarity to phosphate transporters from other plant species.

Zinc is an essential metal involved in many physiological processes. Previous work has identified a set of zinc transporters involved in Drosophila dietary zinc absorption. However, zinc excretion and reabsorption, the other two important processes to maintain zinc homeostasis, are not as well understood. In this work, we screened all the potential zinc(More)
In this paper, we propose an efficient inter frame mode decision algorithm for H.264/AVC transcoding mainly applied to HD video bit-rate reduction. In the proposed algorithm, four measures including mode conversion, mode pre-detection, search centre selection, and SAD reuse are presented for improving the coding efficiency and mode decision accuracy.

This study was designated to clarify the influence of activation of porcine matured oocytes by calcium ionophore on in vitro development of the parthenotes. The follicular oocytes were matured, activated and cultured in North Carolina State University-23 (NCSU-23) medium supplemented with 10% porcine follicular fluid (pFF). The in vitro-matured oocytes were(More)
