The question of nucleosome phasing on African Green Monkey (AGM) alpha-satellite DNA has been addressed by employing a new approach. Nucleosome cores were prepared from AGM nuclei with micrococcal nuclease, exonuclease III and nuclease S1. The core DNA population derived from alpha-satellite DNA containing chromatin was purified from total core DNA by(More)
Based on quantum chemical parameters and a simple numerical coding, the liquid chromatography retention of bifunctionally substituted N-benzylideneaniles (NBA) has been predicted using a radial basis function neural network (RBFNN) model. The quantum chemical parameters involved in the model are dipole moment (m), energies of the highest occupied and lowest(More)
Master key forward security is an important property for identity-based key exchange protocols. Unfortunately, most of existing identity-based key exchange protocols do not satisfy this property. In this paper, we firstly analyze Xie's modified protocol to show that signature is undesirable for an identity-based key agreement protocol with the master key(More)
Three human DNA sequences have been cloned from DNA regions which are strikingly undermethylated in sperm, highly methylated in adult somatic tissues, and methylated to an intermediate extent in tissues of extraembryonic origin. It is proposed that some such DNA sequences may function specifically early in embryogenesis or during gametogenesis. They may be(More)
Leaf senescence is a developmental programmed cell death (PCD) that occurs as a response to external and internal signals. Several factors, such as the environment, plant hormones, and senescence-associated genes, regulate leaf senescence. In Drosophila melanogaster, Will Die Slowly (WDS) is a WD-repeat protein, which is closely related to PCD. Phylogenetic(More)
The genetic manipulation of the laboratory mouse has been well developed and generated more and more mouse lines for biomedical research. To advance our science exploration, it is necessary to share genetically modified mouse lines with collaborators between institutions, even in different countries. The transfer process is complicated. Significant(More)
The locus coeruleus (LC) is an important brainstem area involved in cocaine addiction. However, evidence to elucidate how cocaine modulates the activity of LC neurons remains incomplete. Here, we performed whole recordings in brain slices to evaluate the effects of cocaine on the sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca2+) channels, and glutamatergic(More)
