Bacterial sRNAs are an emerging class of small regulatory RNAs, 40-500 nt in length, which play a variety of important roles in many biological processes through binding to their mRNA or protein targets. A comprehensive database of experimentally confirmed sRNA targets would be helpful in understanding sRNA functions systematically and provide support for(More)
UNLABELLED In bacteria, there exist some small non-coding RNAs (sRNAs) with 40-500 nucleotides in length. Most of them function as posttranscriptional regulation of gene expression through binding to their target mRNAs, in which Hfq protein acts as RNA chaperone. With the increase of identified sRNA genes in the bacterium, prediction of sRNA targets plays a(More)
—This paper presents a unified control strategy that enables both islanded and grid-tied operations of three-phase inverter in distributed generation, with no need for switching between two corresponding controllers or critical islanding detection. The proposed control strategy composes of an inner inductor current loop, and a novel voltage loop in the(More)
Accurate prediction of sRNA targets plays a key role in determining sRNA functions. Here we introduced two mathematical models, sRNATargetNB and sRNATargetSVM, for prediction of sRNA targets using Nai ve Bayes method and support vector machines (SVM), respectively. The training dataset was composed of 46 positive samples (real sRNA-targets interaction) and(More)
So far, no effective therapy is available for acute kidney injury (AKI), a common and serious complication with high morbidity and mortality. Interest has recently been focused on the potential therapeutic effect of mouse adult renal progenitor cells (MRPC), erythropoietin (EPO) and suramin in the recovery of ischemia-induced AKI. The aim of the present(More)
UNLABELLED An increasing number of small RNAs have been discovered in mammals. However, their primary transcripts and upstream regulatory networks remain largely to be determined. Genomic analysis of small RNAs facilitates identification of their primary transcripts, and hence contributes to researches of their upstream regulatory networks. We here report a(More)
The edge and detail of radiographic weld images are fuzzy, resulting in that it is difficult to segment and recognize defects on them. So, an edge enhancement method of radiographic weld image using bidimensional empirical mode decomposition (RIEM) is proposed in this paper. In this method, first, we decompose a radiographic weld image to get its high(More)
Bacterial sRNAs are a class of non-coding RNAs with 40-500 nucleotides in length. Most of them function as posttranscriptional regulation of gene expression through binding to the translation initiation region of their target mRNAs. In view that prediction of sRNAs and their targets provides support for experimental identification, some prediction methods(More)
