The heat shock proteins (HSPs) family which consists of HSP90, HSP70, and low molecular mass HSPs are involved in chaperone activity. Here, we report the cloning and characterization of HSP90AB gene from orange-spotted grouper, Epinephelus coioides. The full-length of grouper HSP90AB was 727 amino acids and possessed an ATPase domain as well as an(More)
Geminiviruses are known to exhibit both prokaryotic and eukaryotic features in their genomes, with the ability to express their genes and even replicate in bacterial cells. We have demonstrated previously the existence of unit-length single-stranded circular DNAs of Ageratum yellow vein virus (AYVV, a species in the genus Begomovirus, family Geminiviridae)(More)
The architecture of the conventional home automation system is usually centralized and thus causes many problems, e.g. lots of network traffic, heavy computation load, and poor fault tolerance. Another problem with the architecture is that there exists a variety of different home control networks incompatible with one another, which makes it difficult to(More)
OBJECTIVE Wolcott-Rallison syndrome (WRS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by the association of permanent neonatal or early-infancy insulin-dependent diabetes, multiple epiphyseal dysplasia and growth retardation, and other variable multisystem clinical manifestations. Here we describe a Chinese boy affected by WRS. Genetic testing of(More)
In this paper, an adaptive impedance force control scheme for an n-link robot manipulator under unknown environment is proposed. The system dynamics of the robot manipulator is assumed that system model is not exactly known or has system uncertainty. Therefore, the traditional adaptive impedance force controller is not valid. Herein, the fuzzy neural(More)
A cryptic prokaryotic promoter, designated AV3 promoter, has been previously identified in certain begomovirus genus, including ageratum yellow vein virus isolate NT (AYVV-NT). In this study, we demonstrated that the core nucleotides in the putative -10 and -35 boxes are necessary but not sufficient for promoter activity in Escherichia coli, and showed that(More)
OBJECTIVE Asthma and corticosteroid use have been implicated as possible risk factors for schizophrenia. The retrospective cohort study herein aimed to investigate the association between asthma, corticosteroid use, and schizophrenia. METHOD Longitudinal data (2000 to 2007) from adults with asthma (n = 50,046) and without asthma (n = 50,046) were compared(More)
