We present a new initial ranging method for OFDMA systems such as IEEE 802.16-2004. First, a new orthogonal ranging signal design is proposed by which an efficient, low-complexity multi-user ranging signal detection is developed. Based on the ranging signal detector results, power estimation for the detected ranging subscriber stations is performed. Then,(More)
We address joint estimation of frequency offsets and channel responses in OFDMA uplink. A cyclically equal-spaced, equal-energy interleaved pilot preamble is proposed by which two iterative estimators are developed. In the first estimator, we develop a modified SAGE (space alternating generalized expectation-maximization) method by incorporating multiuser(More)
We address initial ranging process in OFDMA systems such as IEEE 802.16a. The proposed ranging method includes three main tasks – timing estimation, multi-user ranging code detection, and power estimation. All tasks are performed based on a bank of correlators corresponding to ranging codes. The timing estimation scheme is based on the peak of correlator(More)
A mannanase gene (man26B) was obtained from a sea bacterium, Paenibacillus sp. BME-14, through the constructed genomic library and inverse PCR. The gene of man26B had an open reading frame of 1,428 bp that encoded a peptide of 475- amino acid residues with a calculated molecular mass of 53 kDa. Man26B possessed two domains, a carbohydrate binding module(More)
By constructing a genomic library, an endoglucanase gene (cel9P) was cloned from Paenibacillus sp. BME-14 which was isolated from the sea. It had an open-reading frame of 1,629 bp, encoding a peptide of 542-amino acid residue with a calculated molecular mass of 60 kDa. The enzyme showed the highest amino acid identity of 52% with other known endoglucanases(More)
This paper presents a set of innovative algorithms and a system, named Log Master, for mining correlations of events that have multiple attributions, i.e., node ID, application ID, event type, and event severity, in logs of large-scale cloud and HPC systems. Different from traditional transactional data, e.g., supermarket purchases, system logs have their(More)
The aim of the present study was to establish an ovarian cancer (OC) cell line from ascites of an ovarian serous cystadenocarcinoma patient and investigate the biological characteristics of its side population (SP) cells. The OC cell line was established by isolating, purifying and subculturing primary cells from ascites of an ovarian serous(More)
Hepatitis B virus X protein (HBx) is recognized as an oncogene in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). HBx regulates microRNA expression, including down-regulating miR-338-3p in LO2 cells. Here, we investigated miR-338-3p function in HBx-mediated hepatocarcinogenesis. In 23 HBV-infected HCC clinical patient tumor and adjacent non-tumor control tissues, 17 and 19(More)
