The ADP-ribosylation factors (Arfs) are six proteins within the larger Arf family and Ras superfamily that regulate membrane traffic. Arfs all share numerous biochemical activities and have very similar specific activities. The use of dominant mutants and brefeldin A has been important to the discovery of the cellular functions of Arfs but lack specificity(More)
—In this paper, we present an ongoing research effort on developing an automatic fault diagnosis and prognosis service for large-scale computing systems, such as TeraGrid clusters. By leveraging the research on system health monitoring, the proposed service aims at automatically revealing fault patterns from historical data by applying data mining and(More)
— Application robustness becomes a major concern with the continued scaling of high performance computing (HPC). In a recent study [8], we have developed an adaptive fault management scheme called FT-Pro for improving application robustness by combining the merits of proactive process migration and reactive checkpointing. In this paper, we push forward this(More)
BACKGROUND Malignant gliomas are the most common in central nervous system cancer. Genome-wide association study identifies that CDKN2A was a susceptibility loci for glioma. The CDKN2A/cyclin-dependent kinase 4, 6/Retinoblastoma protein (Rb) pathway is thought to play a crucial role in malignant gliomas pathogenesis. We have investigated the expression of(More)
To analyze CO2 fluxes under conditions of climate change in an alpine meadow on the central Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, we simulated the effect of warming using open top chambers (OTCs) from 2012 to 2014. The OTCs increased soil temperature by 1.62°C (P < 0.05), but decreased soil moisture (1.38%, P < 0.05) during the experiments. The response of ecosystem CO2(More)
Large rotating magnetocaloric effect (MCE) has been observed in some single crystals due to strong magnetocrystalline anisotropy. By utilizing the rotating MCE, a new type of rotary magnetic refrigerator can be constructed, which could be more simplified and efficient than the conventional one. However, compared with polycrystalline materials, the high cost(More)
Two-dimensional organometallic sheets containing regularly and separately distributed transition atoms (TMs) have received tremendous attentions due to their flexibility in synthesis, well-defined geometry and the promising applications in hydrogen storage, electronic circuits, quantum Hall effect, and spintronics. Here for the first time we present a study(More)
