—MapReduce is a widely used parallel programming model and computing platform. With MapReduce, it is very easy to develop scalable parallel programs to process data-intensive applications on clusters of commodity machines. However, it does not directly support heterogeneous related data sets processing, which is common in operations like spatial joins. This(More)
Transforming growth factor beta-activated kinase 1 (TAK1), a member of the MAPKKK family, is a key mediator of proinflammatory and stress signals. Activation of TAK1 by proinflammatory cytokines and T and B cell receptors induces the nuclear localization of nuclear factor kappaB (NF-kappaB) and the activation of c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK)/AP1 and P38,(More)
Both arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi and root hairs play important roles in plant uptake of water and mineral nutrients. To reveal the relative importance of mycorrhiza and root hairs in plant water relations, a bald root barley (brb) mutant and its wild type (wt) were grown with or without inoculation of the AM fungus Rhizophagus intraradices under(More)
Though label propagation algorithm (LPA) is one of the fastest algorithms for community detection in complex networks, the problem of trivial solutions frequently occurring in the algorithm affects its performance. We propose a label propagation algorithm with prediction of percolation transition (LPAp). After analyzing the reason for multiple solutions of(More)
We evaluated immune reconstitution in 58 adults who received hematopoietic SCTs from allogeneic siblings (allosib), matched unrelated donors (MUD) or cord blood (CB) at 90-day intervals for 1 year post transplant. CB recipients had a higher incidence of infections in the first 100 days compared with allosib and MUD recipients. The number of circulating T(More)
Human urinary disorders are generally studied in rodent models due to limitations of functional in vitro culture models of primary human urothelial cells (HUCs). Current HUC culture models are often derived from immortalized cancer cell lines, which likely have functional characteristics differ from healthy human urothelium. Here, we described a simple(More)
The foraging capability of extraradical mycelium (ERM) of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi to high soil phosphorus (P) supply and carry-over effect of ERM on new host plants remain to be explored. This study investigated whether the inhibition of ERM at high P supply varies between fungal species and whether ERM have carry-over effects when they encounter(More)
