We can always turn to a dietitian (or a nutri-tionist) for professional diet suggestions if necessary.

Increasing evidence has pointed to an important role of SUMOylation in cell cycle regulation, especially for M phase. In the current studies, we have obtained evidence through in vitro studies that the master M phase regulator CDK1/cyclin B kinase phosphorylates the SUMOylation machinery component Ubc9, leading to its enhanced SUMOylation activity. First,(More)
BACKGROUND Previously, we identified a sequence variant (N375S) of c-Met gene, however, its association with lung cancer risk and prognosis remain undefined. PATIENTS AND METHODS We investigated the genotype distribution of the c-Met-N375S sequence variant in 206 lung cancer patients and 207 non-cancer controls in the Taiwanese population by DNA(More)

Norartocarpetin is one of the antioxidant and antityrosinase activity compound in Artocarpus communis; however, the cytotoxicity, skin irritation and(More)
(ABSTRACT) The growing demand for high-performance computing platforms has pushed the computing community to invent new architectures for processors. Recently, researchers have begun to solve the problem by the implementation of Field-Programming Gate Arrays (FPGAs). FPGAs make it possible to implement different applications on the same hardware.(More)
