Two novel yeast splicing factors required for spliceosome disassembly have been identified. Ntr1 and Ntr2 (NineTeen complex-Related proteins) were identified for their weak association with components of the Prp19-associated complex. Unlike other Prp19-associated components, these two proteins were primarily associated with the intron-containing spliceosome(More)
A vertical handoff occurs when a multi-homed mobile host roams from a network to another heterogeneous network. Nevertheless, the network before and after a vertical handoff usually have drastic different characteristics. In this paper, we proposed an end-to-end based Vertical-handoff Aware TCP, called VA-TCP, which promptly adapts TCP behavior during a(More)
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), occurring naturally in human food, is known to possess antioxidative and anti-inflammatory activities. Induction of heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) has been reported to exhibit a therapeutic effect in several inflammatory diseases. The aim of study was to test the hypothesis that the protection of ALA against lipopolysaccharide-(LPS-)(More)
BACKGROUND Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a lethal hereditary disease caused by mutations of the survival of motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene, is the leading genetic cause of infant mortality. Its severity directly correlates to the expression level of SMN protein in patients with SMA, but the regulatory mechanisms of SMN protein expression remain incompletely(More)
Comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) has been applied to detect recurrent chromosome alterations in 62 primary gastric carcinomas. Several nonrandom chromosomal changes, including gains of 8q (31 cases, 50%), 20q (29 cases, 47%) with a minimum gain region at 20q11. 2-q12, 13q (21 cases, 34%) with a minimum gain region at 13q22, and 3q (19 cases, 31%)(More)
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE Baicalein (BE), a phenolic flavonoid extracted mainly from the root of Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi, a Chinese herb, is traditionally used in oriental medicine. Several studies have demonstrated that BE exerts many beneficial effects including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities. However, its effect on acute lung(More)
To determine whether the two domains of hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 and the NS4A interact with each other to regulate the RNA unwinding activity, this study compares the RNA unwinding, ATPase and RNA binding activities of three forms of NS3 proteins--the NS3H protein, containing only the helicase domain, the full-length NS3 protein, and the NS3-NS4A(More)
Sodium pentachlorophenate (Na-PCP) has been used in China for years as an molluscacide to kill oncomelania, which is an intermediate host of Schistosome. To evaluate the effects of its long-term successive usage on environment, human exposure and health, studies were carried out in Sichuan, Jiangxi, Jiangsu and Fujian provinces, with a time gap of more than(More)
Wireless sensor networks enjoy some unique characteristics. For example, sensor network are often autonomous, long-lived and rely on battery as the power source. In this paper, we thus improve the SOS kernel to address these unique characteristics. Firstly, we design and implement the hot-swapping capability in SOS that allows a module to be upgraded on the(More)
