This paper investigates the detection performance of randomly deployed wireless sensor networks. It addresses the problem of detecting mobile targets that have continuous movement. We categorise these targets into two classes. The first type is rational targets, which have the knowledge of existing sensors. The other type is on the contrary. These targets(More)
The internal ribosome entry site (IRES) in the 5' untranslated region (UTR) of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) genome initiates translation of the viral polyprotein precursor. The unique structure and high sequence conservation of the 5' UTR render the IRES RNA a potential target for the development of selective viral translation inhibitors. Here, we provide an(More)
A phospholipase Dα gene ( AnPLDα ) was cloned from xerophytic desert plant Ammopiptanthus nanus and its overexpression enhanced salt tolerance of a PLDα1 deficient Arabidopsis mutant. Phospholipase Dα (PLDα) hydrolyzes phosphatidylcholine to produce phosphatidic acid, and plays crucial role in plant tolerance to abiotic stress. In this study, a(More)
Drug-induced ototoxicity, as a toxic side effect, is an important issue needed to be considered in drug discovery. Nevertheless, current experimental methods used to evaluate drug-induced ototoxicity are often time-consuming and expensive, indicating that they are not suitable for a large-scale evaluation of drug-induced ototoxicity in the early stage of(More)
The molybdenum cofactor sulfurase gene ( AnMCSU ) was cloned from xerophytic desert plant Ammopiptanthus nanus and validated for its function of tolerance toward abiotic stresses by heterologous expression in Arabidopsis thaliana. Molybdenum cofactor sulfurase participates in catalyzing biosynthesis of abscisic acid, which plays a crucial role in the(More)
Phospholipase D hydrolyzes phospholipids into phophatidic acid and choline, and plays important roles in growth, development, and stress response. Genome-wide identification for the PLD gene family has been made in several model species. In maize, only a few literatures are available for cloning and function elucidation of several individual members of the(More)
Vacuolar H+-pyrophosphatase (H+-PPase) is one of the proton pumps involved in the response of plants to osmotic stress. In the present study, the vacuolar H+-PPase gene (AnVP1) was cloned from an epibiotic super-xerophytic plant, Ammopiptanthus nanus, by using rapid amplification of cDNA ends. The full-length cDNA was 2684 bp long, containing an open(More)
To identify transcription factors (TFs) and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of Lrh1 (also named Nr5a2) and its homologous genes in Lrh1-knockout pancreas of mice. The RNA-Seq data GSE34030 were downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database, including 2 Lrh1 pancreas knockout samples and 2 wild type samples. All reads were processed through(More)
