The identification of the subset of outer membrane proteins exposed on the surface of a bacterial cell (the surfaceome) is critical to understanding the interactions of bacteria with their environments and greatly narrows the search for protective antigens of extracellular pathogens. The surfaceome of Leptospira was investigated by biotin labeling of viable(More)
Reversible protein phosphorylation is one of the most important post-translational modifications, which regulates various biological cellular processes. Identification of the kinase-specific phosphorylation sites is helpful for understanding the phosphorylation mechanism and regulation processes. Although a number of computational approaches have been(More)
PURPOSE The Pro12Ala polymorphism of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ2 (PPARγ2) gene is reported to be associated with diabetes. However, the gene's association with diabetic retinopathy (DR) in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has been investigated in numerous epidemiologic studies with controversial results. This meta-analysis aimed to(More)
To evaluate the association between complement factor H (CFH) gene polymorphism and the risk of exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in a case-control study in a Chinese cohort. One hundred and thirty-six exudative AMD patients and 140 age- and sex-matched control subjects were recruited. We genotyped 3 common single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
Database management systems (DBMSs) use a main memory area as a buffer to reduce the number of disk accesses performed by a transaction. Some DBMSs divide the buffer area into a number of independent buffer pools and each database object (table or index) is assigned to a specific buffer pool. The tasks of configuring the buffer pools, which define the(More)
In this study, an advanced wastewater treatment process, the denitrifying phosphorus/side stream phosphorus removal system (DPR-Phostrip), was developed for the purpose of enhancing denitrifying phosphorus removal. The enrichment of denitrifying phosphorus-accumulating organisms (DPAOs) and the microbial community structure of DPR-Phostrip were evaluated by(More)
As protein phosphorylation plays an important role in numerous cellular processes, many studies have been undertaken to analyze phosphorylation-related activities for drug design and disease treatment. However, although progresses have been made in illustrating the relationship between phosphorylation and diseases, no existing method focuses on(More)
