P2P file downloading and streaming have already become very popular Internet applications. These systems dramatically reduce the server loading, and provide a platform for scalable content distribution, as long as there is interest for the content. P2P-based video-on-demand (P2P-VoD) is a new challenge for the P2P technology. Unlike streaming live content,(More)
Clonorchis sinensis is a carcinogenic human liver fluke that is widespread in Asian countries. Increasing infection rates of this neglected tropical disease are leading to negative economic and public health consequences in affected regions. Experimental and epidemiological studies have shown a strong association between the incidence of cholangiocarcinoma(More)

An auditory-based feature extraction algorithm is presented. We name the new features as cochlear filter cepstral coefficients (CFCCs) which are defined based on a recently developed auditory transform (AT) plus a set of modules to emulate the signal processing functions in the cochlea. The CFCC features are applied to a speaker identification task to(More)
Corynebacterium glutamicum used gentisate and 3-hydroxybenzoate as its sole carbon and energy source for growth. By genome-wide data mining, a gene cluster designated ncg12918-ncg12923 was proposed to encode putative proteins involved in gentisate/3-hydroxybenzoate pathway. Genes encoding gentisate 1,2-dioxygenase (ncg12920) and fumarylpyruvate hydrolase(More)
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is emerging as a common medical problem. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is the critical turning point at which NAFLD progresses to more advanced stages such as hepatic fibrosis, cirrhosis and even hepatocellular carcinoma. However, the study of the pathogenic or therapeutic factors involved in NASH has been(More)
EfeB/YcdB is a member of the dye-decolorizing peroxidase (DyP) protein family. A recent study has shown that this protein can extract iron from heme without breaking the tetrapyrrole ring. We report the crystal structure of EfeB from Escherichia coli O157 bound to heme at 1.95 Å resolution. The EfeB monomer contains two domains. The heme molecule is located(More)
INTRODUCTION Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation status was reported to be associated with programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression. However, the molecular mechanism of PD-L1 regulation by EGFR activation and the potential clinical significance of blocking PD-1/PD-L1 in EGFR-mutant non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with EGFR(More)
A survey on prevalence of Cryptosporidium spp. in pigs at 12 farms in 8 suburban districts and 1 county of Shanghai was conducted under Sheather's sucrose flotation protocol and modified acid-fast stain methods from 2006 to 2009. A total of 2323 faecal samples were collected and Cryptosporidium spp. oocysts were detected in 800 samples (34.4%).(More)
Before the identification of aquaporin (AQP) proteins, vasopressin-regulated "water channels" were identified by freeze-fracture electron microscopy as aggregates or clusters of intramembraneous particles (IMPs) on hormonally stimulated target cell membranes. In the kidney collecting duct, these IMP clusters were subsequently identified as possible sites of(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence, species and subtypes of Cryptosporidium infecting yaks in the Qinghai Province of Northwestern China. The prevalence of Cryptosporidium spp. was detected by microscopy and nested-PCR. A total of 586 fecal samples were collected from yaks in 6 counties, of which 142 (24.2%) samples tested positive(More)
