The mechanism by which the contractile machinery of muscle is assembled and maintained is not well-understood. Members of the cysteine-rich protein (CRP) family have been implicated in these processes. Three vertebrate CRPs (CRP1-3) that exhibit developmentally regulated muscle-specific expression have been identified. All three proteins are associated with(More)
INTRODUCTION Genetic data from the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) have been crucial in advancing the understanding of Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathophysiology. Here, we provide an update on sample collection, scientific progress and opportunities, conceptual issues, and future plans. METHODS Lymphoblastoid cell lines and DNA and RNA(More)
The biotin carboxyl carrier protein (BCCP) is a subunit of acetyl-CoA carboxylase, a biotin-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the first committed step of fatty acid biosynthesis. In its functional cycle the biotin carboxyl carrier protein engages in heterologous protein-protein interactions with three distinct partners, depending on its state of(More)
UDP-Galactopyranose mutase (UGM) is a flavoenzyme that catalyzes interconversion of UDP-galactopyranose (UDP-Galp) and UDP-galactofuranose (UDP-Galf); its activity depends on FAD redox state. The enzyme is vital to many pathogens, not native to mammals, and is an important drug target. We have probed binding of substrate, UDP-Galp, and UDP to wild type and(More)
LOF is a well-known approach for density-based outlier detection and has received much attention recently. It is important to design a privacy-preserving LOF outlier detection algorithm as the data on which LOF runs is typically spilt among multiple participants and no one is willing to disclose his sensitive information due to legal or moral(More)
Many recent imaging genetic studies focus on detecting the associations between genetic markers such as single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and quantitative traits (QTs). Although there exist a large number of generalized multivariate regression analysis methods, few of them have used diagnosis information in subjects to enhance the analysis performance.(More)
A novel robust hybrid raspberry-like TiO2/PS hollow particles with complex double-shelled structures have been fabricated in large quantities by a facile swelling polymerization approach based on commercially available hollow polystyrene (PS) spheres. The crosslinked-PS protrusions are wedged firmly into the TiO2 shell, making the resultant particles both(More)
The biotin carboxyl carrier protein (BCCP) is a subunit of acetyl-CoA carboxylase, a biotin-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the first committed step of fatty acid biosynthesis. In its functional cycle, this protein engages in heterologous protein-protein interactions with three distinct partners, depending on its state of post-translational modification.(More)
Enrichment analysis has been widely applied in the genome-wide association studies, where gene sets corresponding to biological pathways are examined for significant associations with a phenotype to help increase statistical power and improve biological interpretation. In this work, we expand the scope of enrichment analysis into brain imaging genetics, an(More)
When digital forgery is introduced in a digital images, in order to create a convincing match, it always includes operation of scaling, rotation or skewing, which procedures typically require resampling and interpolation step. However, the resampling detection is always severely affected by the blocking artifacts introduced by JPEG compression. In order to(More)
