The Fragile X-related disorders are a group of genetic conditions that include the neurodegenerative disorder, Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS), the fertility disorder, Fragile X-associated primary ovarian insufficiency (FXPOI) and the intellectual disability, Fragile X syndrome (FXS). The pathology in all these diseases is related to the(More)
Data centers consume anywhere between 1.7% and 2.2% of the United States' power. A handful of studies focused on ways of predicting power consumption of computing platforms based on performance events counters. Most of existing power-consumption models retrieve performance counters from hardware, which offer accurate measurement of energy dissipation.(More)
The fragile X-related disorders result from expansion of a CGG/CCG microsatellite in the 5' UTR of the FMR1 gene. We have previously demonstrated that the MSH2/MSH3 complex, MutSβ, that is important for mismatch repair, is essential for almost all expansions in a mouse model of these disorders. Here we show that the MSH2/MSH6 complex, MutSα also contributes(More)
Trans-splicing, a process involving the cleavage and joining of two separate transcripts, can expand the transcriptome and proteome in eukaryotes. Chimeric RNAs generated by trans-splicing are increasingly described in literatures. The widespread presence of antibiotic resistance genes in natural environments and human intestines is becoming an important(More)
This study aimed to investigate the effect of baclofen, a γ-aminobutyric acid B (GABAB) receptor agonist, on the expression of p-CREB and NR2B in the spinal dorsal horn of rats with diabetic neuropathic pain (DNP). The DNP rats, which were successfully induced with streptozocin, were distributed among 3 groups that were treated with saline (D1 group),(More)
The Fragile X-related disorders (FXDs) are a group of clinical conditions resulting from the expansion of a CGG/CCG-repeat tract in exon 1 of the Fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) gene. While expansions of the repeat tract predominate, contractions are also seen with the net result being that individuals can show extensive repeat length heterogeneity in(More)
Cervical cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed type of cancer and the third leading cause of cancer-associated mortality in women. The current study aimed to determine the genes associated with cervical cancer development. Microarray data (GSE55940 and GSE46306) were downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibus. Overlapping genes between the(More)
