The amino acid sequences of two toxins, AFT-I and AFT-II, from the sea anemone Anthopleura fuscoviridis were determined. AFT-I and -II consist of 47 and 48 amino acid residues, respectively, and are cross-linked with three disulfide bridges. The sequences have high homology to those of toxins I and II from Anemonia sulcata and anthopleurin-A and -B from(More)
The imprinted U2af1-rs1 gene that maps to mouse chromosome 11 is predominately expressed from the paternal allele. We examined the methylation of genomic sequences in and around the U2af1-rs1 locus to establish the extent of sequence modifications that accompanied the silencing of the maternal allele. The analysis of HapII or HhaI sites showed that the(More)
An oocyte-specific methylation imprint mark region, consisting of approximately 200 bp from the mouse imprinted gene U2afbp-rs, was identified within an area containing a CpG island and a short tandem repeat sequence. The oocyte-specific methylation was preserved in fertilized eggs and then expanded on the repressed maternal allele during preimplantation(More)
Imprinted genes harbor discrete regions which are differentially methylated in gametes; usually the final differential methylation patterns in adults are established during embryogenesis through modifications of the initial methylation patterns in gametes. Previous reports have shown that a 200-bp region termed region II within the CpG island of the mouse(More)
Hybrid FEC/ARQ, which is a mixture of forward error correction (FEC) and automatic repeat request (ARQ), is a well-known technique aiming for packet-loss recovery to guarantee quality of service (QoS) for real-time communications. In this paper, focusing on layered video transmission over wireless network environment, we propose a proactive retransmission(More)
