Yuan Zhou, Binxing Fang, Zhenfu Cao, Xiaochun Yun, Xiaoming Cheng
2007 Information Sciences  
Proxy cryptosystem, first proposed by Mambo and Okamoto [M.Mambo, E. Okamoto, Proxy cryptosystem: delegation of a power to decrypt ciphertexts, IEICE Trans. Fundam. Electron. Commun. Comput. Sci. E80-A/1 (1997) 54-63], allows the original decryptor to delegate his decrypting capability to the proxies. However, until now, no practical proxy cryptosystem modes are proposed. Therefore, in this paper, we present a novel proxy cryptosystem model: proxy cryptosystem based on time segmentation. Under

2020 Analytical Sciences  
N-Benzylquininium chloride is a versatile functional monomer with quinoline and benzyl groups, which is beneficial for reversed-phase chromatography. In this study, a novel monolithic column with reversed-phase mode was synthesized using N-benzylquininium chloride as the monomer and 3-(acryloyloxy)-2-hydroxypropyl methacrylate as the cross-linker in a binary porogenic solvent consisting of PEG 400 and a 0.05 M sodium hydroxide aqueous solution. The alkaline solution were found to be useful for

The monolithic column showed excellent reversed-phase selectivity and various compounds, such as alkylbenzenes, phenols and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, were separated successfully. The highest column efficiency was 1.75 × 10 5 N m -1 . The relative standard deviations of the migration time for thiourea and four alkylbenzenes were all less than 5.0%, which indicates the monolithic column has good stability. The application of the monolithic column for the analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in spiked lake water samples illustrated its great potential for practical application.

AbstractPublic key encryption scheme with keyword search is a promising technique supporting search on encrypted data without leaking any information about the keyword. In real applications, it's critical to find an effective revocation method to revoke users in multi-user cryptosystems, when user's secret keys are exposed. In this paper, we propose the first designated server-aided revocable identity-based encryption scheme with keyword search (dSR-IBKS) from lattice. The dSR-IBKS model

We have proved that our scheme can achieve chosen keyword indistinguishability in the standard model. In particular, our scheme can designate a unique tester to test and return the search results, therefore no other entity can guess the keyword embedded in the ciphertext by generating search queries and doing the test by itself. We provide a formal security proof of our scheme assuming the hardness of the learning with errors problem on the standard model.

Based on the concept of thermal conductance constrain and local deformation strengthening, a compound technique of welding and rolling for aluminum alloy is proposed, and the effect of the compound technique of tungsten inert gas(TIG) filler wire butt welding with copper pad cooling and rolling on microstructure and mechanical properties of 5083-O and 6061-T6 dissimilar aluminum alloy welded joints is systematically analyzed. The results show that the defect-free and well-formed aluminum alloy butt joints can be obtained by welding-rolling composite forming. The longitudinal and transverse deformations of the welded joints occur simultaneously by rolling. This technique has several advantages over welding alone. These include obvious compaction of weld microstructure, effectively reduction of weld melting zone width, and violent rotation of grain in the heat affected zone (including the solid solution region and the overaging softening region). Compared with the free-cooling welding process, the hardness of the softened zone on the 6061-T6 side of the welded joint with copper pads cooling is increased and the severely softened position is significantly offset to the weld zone. Post-weld rolling greatly increase the overall hardness of the welded joints with two cooling methods. The hardness value at the most severely softened position is increased from 59.5 HV to 84.4 HV, an increase of 41.8%. Compared with free-cooled joints, the tensile strength of the samples by the composite forming with copper pad cooling increases from 197.0 MPa to 288.6 MPa, an increase of 46.5%, which is equivalent to the tensile strength  国家自然科学基金资助项目(U1764251,U1960111)。20200122 收到初稿, 20200228 收到修改稿

2013 Cancer  
Endoglin (ENG) is a 180-kDa transmembrane glycoprotein that functions as a component of the transforming growth factor-β receptor complex. Recently, ENG promoter hypermethylation was reported in several human cancers. We examined ENG promoter hypermethylation using real-time quantitative methylation-specific PCR in 260 human esophageal tissues. ENG hypermethylation showed highly discriminative receiver-operator characteristic curve profiles, clearly distinguishing esophageal squamous cell

Interestingly, ENG normalized methylation values were significantly higher in ESCC than in N (p<0.01) or EAC (p<0.01). ENG hypermethylation frequency was 46.2% in ESCC and 11.9% in N, but increased early and sequentially during EACassociated neoplastic progression, to 13.3% in Barrett's metaplasia (BE), 25% in dysplastic BE (D), and 26.9% in frank EAC. ENG hypermethylation was significantly higher in N from ESCC patients (mean = 0.0186) than in N from EAC patients (mean = 0.0117; p < 0.05). Treatment of KYSE220 ESCC cells with the demethylating agent, 5-aza-2′-deoxycytidine, reversed ENG methylation and reactivated ENG mRNA expression. We conclude that promoter hypermethylation of ENG is a frequent, tissue-specific event in human ESCC and exhibits a field defect with promising biomarker potential for the early detection of ESCC. In addition, ENG hypermethylation occurs in a subset of human EAC, and early during BE-associated esophageal neoplastic progression.

Perfect forward secure identity-based authenticated key agreement protocol in the escrow mode

ShengBao Wang, ZhenFu Cao, ZhaoHui Cheng, Kim-Kwang Raymond Choo
2009 Science in China Series F Information Sciences  
There are several essential features in key agreement protocols such as key escrow (essential when confidentiality, audit trail and legal interception are required) and perfect forward secrecy (i.e., the security of a session key established between two or more entities is guaranteed even when the private keys of the entities are compromised). Majority of the existing escrowable identity-based key agreement protocols, however, only provide partial forward secrecy. Therefore, such protocols are
more » ... nsuitable for real-word applications that require a stronger sense of forward secrecy -perfect forward secrecy. In this paper, we propose an efficient perfect forward secure identity-based key agreement protocol in the escrow mode. We prove the security of our protocol in the random oracle model, assuming the intractability of the Gap Bilinear Diffie-Hellman (GBDH) problem. Security proofs are invaluable tools in assuring protocol implementers about the security properties of protocols. We note, however, that many existing security proofs of previously published identity-based protocols entail lengthy and complicated mathematical proofs. In this paper, our proof adopts a modular approach and, hence, simpler to follow. 1. Prove that a protocol Π has the property of strong partnering. 2. Prove that a related protocol π is secure in a highly reduced security model. 3. The security proof for π in the reduced model is then translated into a security proof for Π in the full model using a Gap assumption [19] . The overall proof technique using the modular approach is far easier than the conventional approach and this forms the second motivation of our paper. Our contributions 1. We propose an efficient ID-based AK protocol (with only a single online pairing computation) that works in the escrow mode. With comparable performance, our new protocol achieves perfect forward secrecy.

2021 IEEE Photonics Journal  
We report on the development of a 940-nm diode laser bar based on epitaxially stacked active regions by employing a tunnel junction structure. The tunnel junction and the device parameters were systematically optimized to achieve high output and power conversion efficiency. A record quasi-continuous wave (QCW) peak power of 1.91 kW at 25°C was demonstrated from a 1-cm wide bar with a 2-mm cavity length at 1 kA drive current (200 μs pulse width and 10 Hz repetition rate). Below the onset of the

2015 OncoTarget  
Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths throughout China and worldwide. The discovery of microRNAs (miRNAs) has provided a new opportunity for developing diagnostic biomarkers and effective therapeutic targets in GC. By performing microarray analyses of benign and malignant gastric epithelial cell lines (HFE145, NCI-N87, MKN28, RF1, KATO III and RF48), 16 significantly dysregulated miRNAs were found. 11 of these were validated by real-time qRT-PCR. Based on
more » ... alk online database scans, 703 potential mRNA targets of the 16 miRNAs were identified. Bioinformatic analyses suggested that these dysregulated miRNAs and their predicted targets were principally involved in tumor pathogenesis, MAPK signaling, and apoptosis. Finally, miRNA-gene network analyses identified miRNA-125b as a crucial miRNA in GC development. Taken together, these results develop a comprehensive expression and functional profile of differentially expressed miRNAs related to gastric oncogenesis. This profile may serve as a potential tool for biomarker and therapeutic target identification in GC patients.

Esophageal cancer ranks eighth among frequent cancers worldwide. Our aim was to investigate whether and at which neoplastic stage promoter hypermethylation of CAV1 is involved in human esophageal carcinogenesis. Methods: Using real-time quantitative methylation-specific PCR (qMSP), we examined CAV1 promoter hypermethylation in 260 human esophageal tissue specimens.

Results: CAV1 hypermethylation showed highly discriminative ROC curve profiles, clearly distinguishing esophageal adenocarcinomas (EAC) and esophageal squamous cell carcinomas (ESCC) from normal esophagus (NE) (EAC vs. NE, AUROC = 0.839 and p < 0.0001; ESCC vs. NE, AUROC = 0.920 and p < 0.0001). Both CAV1 methylation frequency and normalized methylation value (NMV) were significantly higher in Barrett's metaplasia (BE), low-grade and high-grade dysplasia occurring in BE (D), EAC, and ESCC than in NE (all p < 0.01, respectively). Meanwhile, among 41 cases with matched NE and EAC or ESCC, CAV1 NMVs in EAC and ESCC (mean = 0.273) were significantly higher than in corresponding NE (mean = 0.146; p < 0.01, Student's paired t-test). Treatment of OE33 EAC cells with 5-Aza-dC reduced CAV1 methylation and increased CAV1 mRNA expression. Conclusions: CAV1 promoter hypermethylation is a frequent event in human esophageal carcinomas and is associated with early neoplastic progression in Barrett's esophagus.

There was a significant correlation between MAL hypermethylation and BE segment length. Treatment with 5-aza-29-deoxycytidine reversed MAL methylation and reactivated MAL mRNA expression in OE33 EAC cells. MAL mRNA levels in EACs with unmethylated MAL were significantly higher than in EACs with methylated MAL. MAL hypermethylation is a common, tissue-specific event in human EAC and correlates with clinical neoplastic progression risk factors.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic, progressive and debilitating disease, which affects over 2.5 million people in China. PD is characterized clinically by resting tremor, muscular rigidity, bradykinesia and postural instability. As the disease progresses, additional complications can arise such as non-motor and neurobehavioral symptoms. Pharmacological treatment and surgical intervention for PD have been implemented in China. Until 10 years ago, there was lack of standardization for the

Since then, the Chinese Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorder Society have published three versions of guidelines for the management of PD in China, in 2006China, in , 2009China, in and 2014 Correspondingly, the overall level of treatment for PD in China improved. Objectives: To update the treatment guidelines based on current foreign and domestic practice guidelines and clinical evidence, and to improve the treatment options available to physicians in the management of PD. Summary: A variety of treatment recommendations in the treatment guidelines have been proposed, including physical activity and disease-modifying medication, which should be initiated at the early-stage of the disease. The principles of dosage titration should be followed to avoid acute adverse reactions to the drugs, to achieve a satisfactory clinical effect with a low dose and to reduce the incidence of long-term motor complications. Moreover, different treatment strategies should be considered at different stages of the disease. Importantly, treatment guidelines and personalized treatments should be valued equally. A set of treatment recommendations has been developed to assist physicians to improve and optimize clinical outcomes for patients with PD in China.

SMG-1,a member of the phosphoinositide kinase-like kinase family, functioned as a tumor suppressor gene. However, the role of SMG-1 in GC remain uncharacterized. In this study, regulation of SMG-1 by miR-192 and-215, along with the biological effects of this modulation, were studied in GC. We used gene microarrays to screening and luciferase reporter assays were to verify the potential targets of miR-192 and-215. Tissue microarrays analyses were applied to measure the levels of SMG-1 in GC
more » ... es. Western blot assays were used to assess the signaling pathway of SMG-1 regulated by miR-192 and-215 in GC. SMG-1 was significantly downregulated in GC tissues.The proliferative and invasive properties of GC cells were decreased by inhibition of miR-192 and-215, whereas an SMG-1siRNA rescued the inhibitory effects. Finally, SMG-1 inhibition by miR-192 and-215 primed Wnt signaling and induced EMT. Wnt signaling pathway proteins were decreased markedly by inhibitors of miR-192 and-215, while SMG-1 siRNA reversed the inhibition apparently. Meanwhile, miR-192 and-215 inhitibtors increased E-cadherin expression and decreased Ncadherin and cotransfection of SMG-1 siRNA reversed these effects. In summary, these findings illustrate that SMG-1 is suppressed by miR-192 and-215 and functions as a tumor suppressor in GC by inactivating Wnt signaling and suppressing EMT.
