Reversible protein glutathionylation is an important posttranslational modification that provides protection against oxidation. In endothelial cells (ECs), cinnamaldehyde is an electrophilic compound that can increase the intracellular glutathione (GSH) levels or reactive oxygen species (ROS) production depending on the treatment duration. ECs treated with(More)
Protein glutathionylation is a posttranslational modification of cysteine residues with glutathione in response to mild oxidative stress. Because 15-deoxy-Δ12,14-prostaglandin J(2) (15d-PGJ(2)) is an electrophilic prostaglandin that can increase glutathione (GSH) levels and augment reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, we hypothesized that it induces(More)
We present a hardwired decoder prototype for H.264/AVC main profile video. Our design takes as its input compressed H.264/AVC bit-stream and produces as its output video frames ready for display. We wrap the decoder core with an AMBA-AHB bus interface and integrate it into a multimedia SoC platform. Several architectural innovations at both IP and system(More)
Bacterial galU coding for a uridine diphosphate-glucose pyrophosphorylase plays an important role in carbohydrates biosynthesis, including synthesis of lipopolysaccharides (LPS), membrane-derived oligosaccharides, and capsular polysaccharides. In this study, we characterized the galU mutant of Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae 61 (Psy61), a necrotizing(More)
Ganoderma tsugae is a medicinal fungus with several biological activities. It has long been used as a folk remedy for the promotion of health and longevity in China and other oriental countries. Here, a bioactive fraction of G. tsugae was progressively purified to be enriched in the activity of cytoprotective enzymes. The highest bioactivity was detected in(More)
This paper proposes a novel approach to the polysemy problems in a Chinese to Taiwanese TTS (text-to-speech) system. Polysemy means there are words with more than one meaning or pronunciation, such as “不”(no), “上”(up), and “下”(down), and so on. The correct pronunciation of a word affects the comprehensibility (or intelligibility) and fluency of Taiwanese(More)
