Mainstream energy conservation schemes for disk arrays inherently affect the reliability of disks. A thorough understanding of the relationship between energy saving techniques and disk reliability is still an open problem, which prevents effective design of new energy saving techniques and application of existing approaches in reliability-critical(More)
To provide an insight into the mechanism of interspecific interactions mediated by allelochemicals, cucumber and figleaf gourd seedlings were compared on their response to cinnamic acid, an autotoxin from root exudates of cucumber. Reactive oxygen species metabolism and plasma membrane H(+)-ATPase activity were examined in roots upon exposure to cinnamic(More)
Heart failure is a global health problem, appearing most commonly in patients with previous myocardial infarction (MI). Cardiac remodelling, particularly fibrosis, seen in both the infarcted and non-infarcted myocardium is recognized to be a major determinant of the development of impaired ventricular function, leading to a poor prognosis. Elucidating(More)
We explored how digit forces and indices of digit coordination depend on the history of getting to a particular set of task parameters during static prehension tasks. The participants held in the right hand an instrumented handle with a light-weight container attached on top of the handle. At the beginning of each trial, the container could be empty, filled(More)
MCP-1-induced protein 1 (MCPIP1) plays an important role in the downregulation of the LPS-induced immune response by acting as an RNase targeting IL-6 and IL-12b mRNAs. A conserved domain located in the N-terminal part of MCPIP1 is thought to be responsible for its RNase activity, but its catalytic mechanism is not well understood due to the lack of an(More)
The famous F5 algorithm for computing Gröbner basis was presented by Faugère in 2002. The original version of F5 is given in programming codes, so it is a bit difficult to understand. In this paper, the F5 algorithm is simplified as F5B in a Buchberger's style such that it is easy to understand and implement. In order to describe F5B, we introduce(More)
A generalized criterion for signature related algorithms to compute Gröbner basis is proposed in this paper. Signature related algorithms are a popular kind of algorithms for computing Gröbner basis, including the famous F5 algorithm, the F5C algorithm, the extended F5 algorithm and the GVW algorithm. The main purpose of current paper is to study(More)
When one of them was inhibited, the two pathways could compensate with each other to guarantee normal growth. Moreover, the sterol biosynthesis inhibitor miconazole could enhance ginsenoside level. Ginsenosides, a kind of triterpenoid saponins derived from isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP), represent the main pharmacologically active constituents of ginseng.(More)
Contemporary disk arrays consist purely of hard disk drives, which normally provide huge storage capacities with low-cost and high-throughput for data-intensive applications. Nevertheless, they have some inhenrent disadvantages such as long access latencies, high annual disk replacement rates, fragile physical characteristics, and energy-inefficiency due to(More)
