Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are versatile molecules mediating a variety of cellular responses in plant cells, including programmed cell death (PCD), development, gravitropism, and hormonesignaling. A picture showing how ROS function in signal transduction networks has started to emerge as the result of recent studies providing genetic, cell biological,(More)
Reversible protein phosphorylation plays a pivotal role in the regulation of cellular signaling pathways. Current approaches in phosphoproteomics focus on analysis of the global phosphoproteome in a single cellular state or of receptor stimulation time course experiments, often with a restricted number of time points. Although these studies have provided(More)
We present Twitris 2.0 , a Semantic Web application that facilitates understanding of social perceptions by Semantics-based processing of massive amounts of event-centric data. Twitris 2.0 addresses challenges in large scale processing of social data, preserving spatiotemporal-thematic properties. Twitris 2.0 also covers context based semantic integration(More)
Mast cells play a central role in type I hypersensitivity reactions and allergic disorders such as anaphylaxis and asthma. Activation of mast cells, through a cascade of phosphorylation events, leads to the release of mediators of the early phase allergic response. Understanding the molecular architecture underlying mast cell signaling may provide(More)
Statements about RDF statements, or meta triples, provide additional information about individual triples, such as the source, the occurring time or place, or the certainty. Integrating such meta triples into semantic knowledge bases would enable the querying and reasoning mechanisms to be aware of provenance, time, location, or certainty of triples.(More)
This thesis proposes a novel approach to address the issues of efficiency and fairness when multiple portfolios are rebalanced simultaneously. A fund manager who rebalances multiple portfolios needs to not only optimize the total efficiency, i.e., maximize net risk-adjusted return, but also guarantee that trading costs are fairly split among the clients.(More)
We introduce several novel visualization and interaction paradigms for visual analysis of published protein-protein interaction networks, canonical signaling pathway models, and quantitative proteomic data. We evaluate them anecdotally with domain scientists to demonstrate their ability to accelerate the proteomic analysis process. Our results suggest that(More)
His(73) participates in the regulation of the nucleotide binding cleft conformation in yeast actin. Earlier molecular dynamics studies suggested that Asp(184) interacts with His(73) thereby stabilizing a "closed-cleft" G-actin. However, beta-actin in the open-cleft state shows a closer interaction of His(73) with Asp(179) than with Asp(184). We have thus(More)
Endocrine cell proliferation fluctuates dramatically in response to signals that communicate hormone demand. The genetic alterations that override these controls in endocrine tumors often are not associated with oncogenes common to other tumor types, suggesting that unique pathways govern endocrine proliferation. Within the pancreas, for example, activating(More)
A critical aspect of the NIH Translational Research roadmap, which seeks to accelerate the delivery of "bench-side" discoveries to patient's "bedside," is the management of the provenance metadata that keeps track of the origin and history of data resources as they traverse the path from the bench to the bedside and back. A comprehensive provenance(More)
