There exist many web services which exhibit similar functional characteristics. It is imperative to provide service consumers with facilities for selecting required web services according to their non-functional characteristics or quality of service (QoS). However, the selection process is greatly complicated by the distinct views of service providers and(More)
Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) is considered to be associated with post-weaning multisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS), which is a newly emerged economically important swine disease. The entire coding region of open reading frame 2 (ORF2), encoding the viral capsid protein (Cap), of PCV2 was cloned and sequenced from the clinical specimen obtained from(More)
Appropriate use of group consensus on service consumers' QoS opinions can improve web service discovery. For web service participants with different backgrounds or preferences it may not be easy to reach a consensus on the Web service QoS opinions, so they should be treated as multi-groups. Also, to prevent possibly useful opinions from being omitted(More)
Porcine circovirus type 2 possesses a circular, single-stranded DNA genome that requires the replication protein (Rep) for virus replication. To characterize the DNA binding potential and the significant region that confers the nuclear localization of the Rep protein, the defined coding regions of rep gene were cloned and expressed. All of the recombinant(More)
Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) is the primary causative agent of porcine circovirus-associated diseases in pigs. The sole structural capsid protein of PCV2, Cap, consists of major antigenic domains, but little is known about the assembly of capsid particles. The purpose of this study is to produce a large amount of Cap protein using Escherichia coli(More)
Ensuring consensus on QoS attributes is imperative for the discovery of Web services. Inconsistent views of service providers and consumers on QoS attributes could be problematic, even though they have consensus on characteristics. For instance, they may have distinct views of the QoS attribute of service reliability, wherein a consumer considers that a(More)
Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) is the primary causative agent of porcine circovirus-associated diseases in pigs. To analyze whether the PCV2 nonstructural protein ORF3 is able to induce apoptosis in nature target cells, transient expression of ORF3 in porcine peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) was performed, and apoptosis was confirmed by terminal(More)
Little is known of how the genetic background effects the phenomenon of genomic imprinting. The H19 gene belongs to a cluster of imprinted genes on human chromosome 11. Here we show that the alternative splicing of a human H19 transcript is genotype-specific. Moreover, this variant transcript, which lacks exon 4, is either not found at all, is widely(More)
Ambient O3, NOx, NOy, and CO were measured at the Shangdianzi regional background station from 26 March to 9 October 2008, and VOCs samples were taken and analyzed. This paper uses the data to obtain the ozone production efficiency (OPE) at Shangdianzi and studies the relationship of OPE with NO, and VOCs. In addition, the potential impact from the dry(More)
