Scaffolding molecules at the postsynaptic membrane form the foundation of excitatory synaptic transmission by establishing the architecture of the postsynaptic density (PSD), but the small size of the synapse has precluded measurement of PSD organization in live cells. We measured the internal structure of the PSD in live neurons at approximately 25 nm(More)
A real-time cognitive radio network testbed is being built. This is the first paper to capture the overall picture of this project. Project scope and philosophy, design architecture, hardware platform, and key algorithms are reported. The use of cognitive radio network for smart grid is for the first time proposed in this paper. This unique testbed is ideal(More)
Two classifiers-Support Vector Machine (SVM) and Conditional Random Fields (CRFs) are applied here for the recognition of biomedical named entities. According to their different characteristics, the results of two classifiers are merged to achieve better performance. We propose an automatic corpus expansion method for SVM and CRF to overcome the shortage of(More)
Keywords: Transport pathway Backward trajectory Trajectory cluster Trajectory sector analysis (TSA) Potential source contribution function (PSCF) a b s t r a c t Beijing has suffered from major air pollution in recent years from PM 10. In this study, we investigated the transport pathways and potential sources of PM 10 concentration based on backward(More)
Daily 24-hour PM 2.5 samples were collected continuously from January 1 to December 31, 2010. Elemental concentrations from Al to Pb were obtained using particle induced X-ray emission (PIXE) method. This was the first full year continuous daily PM 2.5 elemental composition dataset in Beijing. Source apportionment analysis was conducted on this dataset(More)
In previous studies, the Alfin1 gene, a transcription factor, enhanced salt tolerance in alfalfa, primarily through altering gene expression levels in the root. Here, we examined the molecular evolution of the Alfin-like (AL) proteins in two Arabidopsis species (A. lyrata and A. thaliana) and a salt-tolerant close relative Thellungiella halophila. These(More)
This paper is a compilation of notes on 142 fungal taxa, including five new families, 20 new genera, and 100 new species, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range. The new families, Ascocylindricaceae, Caryosporaceae and Wicklowiaceae (Ascomycota) are introduced based on their distinct lineages and unique morphology. The new Dothideomycete genera(More)
Two main difficulties in SVM (Support-Vector Machine) and other machine-learning based biological named entity recognition are the existence of many different spelling variants and a lack of annotated corpus for training. Attempts are made to resolve these two difficulties respectively, which turn out to be rewarding. We automatically expand the annotated(More)
BmKn2 is an antimicrobial peptide (AMP) characterized from the venom of scorpion Mesobuthus martensii Karsch by our group. In this study, Kn2-7 was derived from BmKn2 to improve the antibacterial activity and decrease hemolytic activity. Kn2-7 showed increased inhibitory activity against both gram-positive bacteria and gram-negative bacteria. Moreover,(More)
