We describe Paradropper, a general-purpose global computing system based on a peer-to-peer self-organizing overlay network. In Paradropper, the peer is organized into an overlay network with " small world " characteristics, and workload is well balanced among the peers according to their workload in a decentralized manner. Particularly, it not only supports(More)
Signaling pathways transmit information through protein interaction networks that are dynamically regulated by complex extracellular cues. We developed LUMIER (for luminescence-based mammalian interactome mapping), an automated high-throughput technology, to map protein-protein interaction networks systematically in mammalian cells and applied it to the(More)
Red pap1-D cells of Arabidopsis thaliana have been cloned from production of anthocyanin pigmentation 1-Dominant (pap1-D) plants. The red cells are metabolically programmed to produce high levels of anthocyanins by a WD40-bHLH-MYB complex that is composed of the TTG1, TT8/GL3 and PAP1 transcription factors. Here, we report that indole 3-acetic acid (IAA),(More)
BACKGROUND Microvascular decompression has been widely used as the first choice in treating trigeminal neuralgia, but in a few patients, facial pain cannot be effectively controlled by microvascular decompression. We sought to clarify the important factors for good operative outcomes. METHODS We reviewed 62 patients with trigeminal neuralgia treated by(More)
In Drosophila postembryonic neuroblasts, transition in gene expression programs of a cascade of transcription factors (also known as the temporal series) acts together with the asymmetric division machinery to generate diverse neurons with distinct identities and regulate the end of neuroblast proliferation. However, the underlying mechanism of how this(More)
—Quadrature sampling has been widely applied in coherent radar systems to extract in-phase and quadrature (I and Q) components in the received radar signal. However, the sampling is inefficient because the received signal contains only a small number of significant target signals. This paper incorporates the compressive sampling (CS) theory into the design(More)
OBJECTIVE To anatomically reconstruct the oculomotor nerve, trochlear nerve, and abducent nerve by skull base surgery. METHODS Seventeen cranial nerves (three oculomotor nerves, eight trochlear nerves and six abducent nerves) were injured and anatomically reconstructed in thirteen skull base operations during a period from 1994 to 2000. Repair techniques(More)
The OSGi-based platform TaskShadow supports seamless task migration across smart environments using a task-to-service mapping algorithm to semantically search for suitable low-level services that achieve high-level tasks. In such smart environments, 1 tasks would involve not only computational devices, such as desktop computers, printers, and smart phones,(More)
