SUMMARY Two-component signal transduction, featuring highly conserved histidine kinases (HKs) and response regulators (RRs), is one of the most prevalent signalling schemes in prokaryotes. RRs function as phosphorylation-activated switches to mediate diverse output responses, mostly via transcription regulation. As bacterial genomes typically encode(More)
CarNAC4 is a typical stress-responsive NAC transcription factor and enhances drought and salt stress tolerances in transgenic Arabidopsis. Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) is relatively vulnerable to abiotic stress conditions, but the tolerance mechanisms for such stresses in chickpea are largely unknown. To identify stress-related factors in chickpea, we(More)
It has been confirmed that mitochondrial impairment may underlie both sporadic and familial Parkinson's disease (PD). Mitochondrial fission/fusion and biogenesis are key processes in regulating mitochondrial homeostasis. Therefore, we explored whether the protective effect of resveratrol in rotenone-induced neurotoxicity was associated with mitochondrial(More)
This survey highlights the major issues concerning privacy and security in online social networks. Firstly, we discuss research that aims to protect user data from the various attack vantage points including other users, advertisers , third party application developers, and the on-line social network provider itself. Next we cover social network inference(More)
DDoS attacks are one of the major threats to Internet services. Sophisticated hackers are mimicking the features of legitimate network events, such as flash crowds, to fly under the radar. This poses great challenges to detect DDoS attacks. In this paper, we propose an attack feature independent DDoS flooding attack detection method at local area networks.(More)
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is important in Cloud Computing, which provides on-demand virtual machines (VMs) to users. Proper deployment of the virtual machine onto available hosts plays an important role on the load-balancing of modern data center. At present, many load-balancing methods are based on the load forecasting model, that could predict(More)
Percutaneous vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive surgical technique for the treatment of spinal damage and pathological compression fractures. Iodine-125 (I-125) particles can inhibit the uncontrolled proliferation of tumor cells to achieve anti-tumor effects. We report treating a spinal cord compression and T5 metastatic lung cancer(More)
GmSBH1 involves in response to high temperature and humidity stress. Homeobox transcription factors are key switches that control plant development processes. Glycine max H1 Sbh1 (GmSBH1) was the first homeobox gene isolated from soybean. In the present study, the full ORF of GmSBH1 was isolated, and the encoded protein was found to be a typical class I(More)
This study focuses on the individual sedation model identification problem, and proposes a subspace-based Wiener system identification method. The traditional compartmental pharmacokinetics-pharmacodynamics hypnosis model is considered as a specific Wiener system with the Hill equation nonlinear term. To deal with the Hill nonlinear term, the proposed(More)
