Virtualizing and sharing networked resources have become a growing trend that reshapes the computing and networking architectures. Embedding multiple virtual networks (VNs) on a shared substrate is a challenging problem on cloud computing platforms and large-scale sliceable network testbeds. In this paper we apply the Markov Random Walk (RW) model to rank a(More)
We recently reported that a 44 kd glycoprotein secreted by transformed fibroblasts stimulates tyrosine phosphorylation of the product of the neu proto-oncogene and induces differentiation of mammary tumor cells to milk-producing, growth-arrested cells. A partial amino acid sequence of the protein, termed Neu differentiation factor (NDF), enabled cloning of(More)
Human telomeres contain two related telomeric DNA-binding proteins, TRF1 and TRF2. The TRF1 complex contains the TRF1 interacting partner, TIN2, as well as PIP1 and POT1 and regulates telomere-length homeostasis. The TRF2 complex is primarily involved in telomere protection and contains the TRF2 interacting partner human (h)Rap1 as well as several factors(More)
We have isolated and functionally characterized a multicomponent Oct-1 coactivator, OCA-S which is essential for S phase-dependent histone H2B transcription. The p38 component of OCA-S binds directly to Oct-1, exhibits potent transactivation potential, is selectively recruited to the H2B promoter in S phase, and is essential for S phase-specific H2B(More)
Intracellular membrane traffic is thought to be regulated in part by soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor-attachment protein receptors (SNAREs) through the formation of complexes between these proteins present on vesicle and target membranes. All known SNARE-mediated fusion events involve members of the syntaxin and vesicle-associated membrane protein(More)
Cadmium (Cd), a toxic environmental contaminant, induces oxidative stress, leading to neurodegenerative disorders. Recently we have demonstrated that Cd induces neuronal apoptosis in part by activation of the mitogen-activated protein kineses (MAPK) and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathways. However, the underlying mechanism remains elusive. Here we(More)
The semaphorin family contains a large number of secreted and transmembrane proteins, some of which are known to act as repulsive axon guidance cues during development or to be involved in immune function. We report here on the identification of semaphorin K1 (sema K1), the first semaphorin known to be associated with cell surfaces via a(More)
