Efficient virtual machine (VM) management can dramatically reduce energy consumption in data centers. Existing VM management algorithms fall into two categories based on whether the VMs' resource demands are assumed to be static or dynamic. The former category fails to maximize the resource utilization as they cannot adapt to the dynamic nature of VMs'(More)
ACE2-Ang (1-7) axis is a key regulator in cardiac hypertrophy, myocardial remodeling and development of heart failure. To investigate how ACE2-Ang (1-7) axis function in pressure-overload-induced heart failure, male SD rats (weighing about 250 g) were used to establish the model of pressure-overload-induced heart failure using aortic stenosis surgery. The(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels and the extent of coronary artery stenosis in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) remains uncertain. The present study aimed to assess the correlation of HbA1c level with angiographic coronary atherosclerosis. METHODS 292 consecutive ACS patients were enrolled and stratified into(More)
Hydraulic fracturing technology is usually used to stimulate tight gas reservoirs for increasing gas production. The stimulated volume depends in part on the pre-existing natural fractures in a reservoir. The mechanisms influencing the interaction between hydraulic fractures and natural fractures have to be well understood in order to achieve a successful(More)
UNLABELLED Acidovorax citrulli (Ac) is an important bacterium that occurs in watermelon, melon and other cucurbits. It mainly damages watermelon and melon, and can cause leaf blight, fruit rot, and even mortality. OBJECTIVE To verify the relationship between defects in the synthesis of histidine and the pathogenicity of Ac. METHODS We generated a(More)
Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have indicated an association of histone deacetylase 9 (HDAC9) genetic variant with large-vessel stroke and coronary artery disease, among the European population. However, whether HDAC9 gene is associated with an increased susceptibility to acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in Chinese Han population is not known. A(More)
In Hybrid networks, which synergistically mix together wired and wireless links to achieve flexible and reliable communication, it is particularly challenging to routing selfish tasks since each task wish to finish transmission as early as possible and its decision could have impacts on the others. In this paper, we investigate the problem to route a given(More)
