Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathological processes of various neurodegenerative diseases. Ugonin K, a flavonoid isolated from the rhizomes of Helminthostachys zeylanica, possesses potent antioxidant property. In this study, we investigate the neuroprotective effects of ugonin K on hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2))-induced apoptosis in SH-SY5Y(More)
UNLABELLED An integrated database and search system has been developed for protein family identification and information retrieval, as an approach to undertake the highly complex, genomic-scale problem of molecular sequence database search and organization.

In practice, in order to reduce default risks with credit-risk customers, a seller (e.g., a manufacturer or a retailer) frequently requests its credit-risk customers to pay a fraction of the purchase amount at the time of placing an order as collateral deposit, and then grants a permissible delay on the outstanding balance (i.e., a downstream partial trade(More)
In today's competitive markets, most firms in United Kingdom and United States offer their products on trade credit to stimulate sales and reduce inventory. Trade credit is calculated based on time value of money on the purchase cost (i.e., discounted cash flow analysis). Recently, many researchers use discounted cash flow analysis only on the purchase cost(More)
The realization of a digital phase-locked loop (DPLL) requires to choose a suitable phase detector and to design an appropriate loop filter; these tasks are commonly nontrivial in most applications. In this paper, the phase detector is examined, and a simple model is given to describe the characteristics of the timing function. The DPLL system is then(More)
The Protein Ontology (PRO; http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/pr) formally defines and describes taxon-specific and taxon-neutral protein-related entities in three major areas: proteins related by evolution; proteins produced from a given gene; and protein-containing complexes. PRO thus serves as a tool for referencing protein entities at any level of(More)
