Ubiquitous access to sophisticated internet services from diverse end devices across heterogeneous networks requires the injection of additional functionality into the network to handle protocol conversion, data transcoding, and in general bridge disparate network portions. Several researchers have proposed infrastructures for injecting such functionality;(More)
Load balancing in the cloud computing environment has an important impact on the performance. Good load balancing makes cloud computing more efficient and improves user satisfaction. This article introduces a better load balance model for the public cloud based on the cloud partitioning concept with a switch mechanism to choose different strategies for(More)
Sex steroids control cell movement and tissue organization; however, little is known of the involved mechanisms. This report describes the ongoing dynamic regulation by estrogen of the actin cytoskeleton and cell movement in human vascular endothelial cells that depends on rapid activation of the actin-regulatory protein moesin. Moesin activation is(More)
Progesterone plays a role in breast cancer development and progression but the effects on breast cancer cell movement or invasion have not been fully explored. In this study, we investigate the actions of natural progesterone and of the synthetic progestin medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) on actin cytoskeleton remodeling and on breast cancer cell movement(More)
While progesterone plays multiple roles in the process of breast development and differentiation, its role in breast cancer is less understood. We have shown previously that progestins stimulate breast cancer cell migration and invasion because of the activation of rapid signaling cascades leading to modifications in the actin cytoskeleton and cell membrane(More)
This paper describes an adaptive network infrastructure, Composable Adaptive Network Services (CANS), for bridging the bandwidth and resource gap between network services and mobile clients. CANS enables construction of service access paths augmented with ‘impedance matching’ components that handle operations such as caching, protocol conversion, and(More)
Stack overflow is an essential part of FreeRTOS operating system migration problem on S3C44B0 processor. This paper analyzes the structure of FreeRTOS system's real-time kernel and the architecture of S3C44B0 processor, and studies stack structure model on S3C44B0 processor running on FreeRTOS operating system. An execution strategy is described to solve(More)
BACKGROUND Estrogen is an established enhancer of breast cancer development, but less is known on its effect on local progression or metastasis. We studied the effect of estrogen receptor recruitment on actin cytoskeleton remodeling and breast cancer cell movement and invasion. Moreover, we characterized the signaling steps through which these actions are(More)
Sex steroid receptors (SRs) traditionally have been regarded as transcription factors regulating the expression of target genes. However, alternative mechanisms of signal transduction have been identified recently. These actions of sex steroids do not require gene expression or protein synthesis and are independent of the nuclear localization of the(More)
