The activity of Src kinases appears to play a role in both assembly and disassembly of tight junction. However, the role of a specific isoform of Src kinase in regulation of tight junction is not known. In the present study the role of c-Src in regulation of epithelial tight junction was investigated in Caco-2 cell monolayers. Oxidative stress (xanthine(More)
A 1.2 kW, 2450 MHz resonant continuous microwave processing system was designed and optimized for oil extraction from green algae (Scenedesmus obliquus). Algae-water suspension (1:1 w/w) was heated to 80 and 95°C, and subjected to extraction for up to 30 min. Maximum oil yield was achieved at 95°C and 30 min. The microwave system extracted 76-77% of total(More)
A continuous microwave system to treat ballast water inoculated with different invasive species was designed and installed atthe Louisiana State University Agricultural Center. The effectiveness of the system to deliver the required heating loads to inactivate the organisms present was studied. The targeted organisms were microalgae (Nannochloropsis(More)
Microwaves can be a more efficient method than traditional thermal treatment to deliver the energy required for heating in solvent-oil extraction due to its volumetric, direct coupling with the material. An understanding of the behavior of dielectric properties of solvent-feedstock mixtures is important for designing and optimizing any microwave-based(More)
This paper deals with the design of an area-time efficient hardware architecture for the multivariate signature scheme, Rainbow. As a part of this architecture, a high-performance hardware optimized variant of the well-known Gaussian elimination over GF(2<sup>l</sup>) and its efficient implementation is presented. Besides solving LSEs, the architecture is(More)
Over the last twenty years, newly developed chemical sensor systems (so called "electronic noses") have made odor analyses possible. These systems involve various types of electronic chemical gas sensors with partial specificity, as well as suitable statistical methods enabling the recognition of complex odors. As commercial instruments have become(More)
This paper describes a usefulness measure that supports ongoing work on a hybrid process planning approach that combines the best characteristics of both variant and generative process planning while avoiding their worst limitations. To specify the fixtures needed by a process plan for a new design, the hybrid approach must identify existing designs and(More)
The purpose of this research was to design, test, and optimize a continuous microwave extraction method using temperature and residence time during and after microwave exposure as optimizing parameters for extraction of major isoflavones (genistin, genistein, daidzin, and daidzein) from soy flour. The extraction yield of four isoflavones at different(More)
applies and teaches advanced methodologies of design and analysis to solve complex, hierarchical, heterogeneous and dynamic problems of engineering technology and systems for industry and government. Abstract This paper describes a neural network-based design similarity measure for a variant fixture planning approach. The goal is to retrieve, for a new(More)
