Tamm-Horsfall protein (THP), the most abundant urinary protein synthesized by the kidney epithelial cells, is believed to play important and diverse roles in the urinary system, including renal water balance, immunosuppression, urinary stone formation, and inhibition of bacterial adhesion. In the present study, we describe the isolation of a 9.3-kb,(More)
BACKGROUND The tumor suppressor TP53 and its negative regulator MDM2 play crucial roles in carcinogenesis. Previous case-control studies also revealed TP53 72Arg>Pro and MDM2 309T>G polymorphisms contribute to the risk of common cancers. However, the relationship between these two functional polymorphisms and nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) susceptibility(More)
Agent-based workflow has been proven its potential in overcoming issues in traditional workflow-based systems, such as decentralization, organizational issues, etc. The existing data mining tools provide workflow metaphor for data mining process visualization, audition and monitoring; these are particularly useful for distributed environments. In(More)
User-friendliness and performance are important properties of data mining and analysis tools. In this demo, we introduced an agent-based distributed data mining platform that allows users to manage and share the data-mining-related resources conveniently. Furthermore, the platform employs agents for workflow enactment in which the performance is improved(More)
A micromechanical silicon resonant accelerometer (SRA) with micro leverage mechanism amplifying the inertial force is presented. SRA consists of a pair of double-ended tuning forks (DETF), a proof mass and a micro lever mechanism. Firstly??the relation between frequency shift and applied force of DETF is modeled with the classical Bernoulli-Euler beams(More)
Charr populations are particularly susceptible to change, either from the application of harvest or environmental conditions such as climate variation. As an alternative to conventional fishery analysis, we analyze the sustainability and viability of selected North American charr stocks using a number of approaches. We compare several methods for data(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Reversible assembly and disassembly of nanostructures has important function in controllable construction of nanodevices. There are several methods to achieve reversible assembly/disassembly, such as pH, temperature, DNA hybridization and so on. Among these methods, pH driven reversible assembly presents superiority due to its(More)
