Secure Hash Algorithm-3(SHA-3) implementation on Xilinx FPGAs, Suitable for IoT Applications

cryptographic hash functions are needed to provide near real time data integrity checking. The IoT is a world where billions of objects can sense, share information and communicate over interconnected public or private Internet Protocol (IP) networks. This paper provides an implementation of a newly selected cryptographic hash algorithm called Secure Hash Algorithm – 3 (SHA-3) on Xilinx FPGAs (Spartan, Virtex, Kintex and Artix) and also provides the power analysis of the implemented design.

Assessment of type 1 and type 3 deiodinase expression levels in depressive disorders

A depressive disorder is a disease characterized by a heterogenous background. The important processes observed and diagnosed in depressed patients indicate that the etiology of depression may include disturbances in thyroid hormone (TH) levels and the occurrence of immune-inflammatory activation. Type 1 (DIO1) and type 3 (DIO3) iodothyronine deiodinases are the enzymes which determine the peripheral and tissue levels of TH, but also interfere with immunological cells and inflammatory processes

roots of host plants release strigolactones, which stimulate germination and branching of spores of arbuscular fungi. As a result, the fungi synthesize molecular signals, i.e. chitooligosaccharides (COs) and lipochitooligosaccharides (LCOS), called MycF factors. Thanks to the development of molecular biology techniques the probable cascade of events during the recognition of fungal MycF factor by the host-plant has been outlined.

MMP-3 deficiency does not influence the length and number of CA1 dendrites of hippocampus of adult mice

Over the past two decades, metalloproteinases (MMPs), including MMP-2, MMP-3, and MMP-9, have been implicated as important players in mechanisms underlying various forms of neuroplasticity. In particular, MMP-3 was found to be involved in both cognitive functions and in plasticity phenomena, but the underlying molecular mechanisms remain largely elusive. In general, it is believed that functional plasticity of neurons is associated with morphological alterations. Interestingly, MMP-9, in

Reproduction of Meloidogyne incognita Race 3 on Flue-cured Tobacco Homozygous for Rk1 and/or Rk2 Resistance Genes

Most commercial tobacco cultivars possess the Rk1 resistance gene to races 1 and 3 of Meloidogyne incognita and race 1 of Meloidogyne arenaria, which has caused a shift in population prevalence in Virginia tobacco fields toward other species and races. A number of cultivars now also possess the Rk2 gene for root-knot resistance. Experiments were conducted in 2013 to 2014 to examine whether possessing both Rk1 and Rk2 increases resistance to a variant of M. incognita race 3 compared to

The Diego blood group system (DI) currently encompasses 22 antigens. Three of the antigens are of high prevalence and the other 19 are of low prevalence. The antigens of the Diego blood group system are carried on the erythroid band 3 protein anion exchanger 1 (AE1), the product of a single gene, SLC4A1 (solute carrier family 4, anion exchanger, member 1). AE1 is a member of a family of three anion exchangers or transporters expressed in a variety of tissues. This protein is involved in carbon

A novel JK null allele associated with typing discrepancies among African Americans

The Jknull (Jk-3) phenotype, attributable to null or silenced alleles, has predominantly been found in persons of Polynesian descent. With the increased use of molecular genotyping, many new silencing mutations have been identified in persons of other ethnic backgrounds. To date, only two JK null alleles have been reported in African Americans, JK*01N.04 and JK*01N.05. A comparative study was undertaken to determine whether JK mutations were present in the regional African American population

Updating the picture of layer 2/3 VIP-expressing interneuron function in the mouse cerebral cortex

INTRODUCTION Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP)-expressing interneurons exhibit a combination of features that rather clearly distinguish them from other interneuron populations. Primarily, VIP interneurons exhibit a different distribution than parvalbumin-expressing (PV+) or somatostatin-expressing (SST+) cells, which are most abundant in layer 4 or in deep layers, respectively (Tremblay et al., 2016; Yavorska and Wehr, 2016). In contrast, VIP interneurons mainly occupy layer 2/3. In layer 1

Bioconversion of 16-dehydropregnenolone Acetate to Exclusively 4-androstene-3,17-dione by Delftia acidovorans MTCC 3363

Delftia acidovorans MTCC 3363 was found to convert 16-dehydropregnenolone acetate (16-DPA) exclusively to 4-androstene-3, 17-dione (AD). Addition of 9α-hydroxylase inhibitors was not required for preventing the accumulation of byproducts. The effect of pH, tempera­ture, substrate concentration, surfactants and carrier solvents on this bioconversion has been studied. 16-DPA was maximally converted in buffered medium at pH 7.0, at temperature 30°C and 0.5 mg ml–1 substrate

A rat model with barrel cortex subjected to bead epidural compression was used. Golgi-Cox staining analyses showed the shrinkage of dendritic arbors and the stripping of dendritic spines of stellate neurons for at least 3 months post

Oscheius microvilli n. sp. (Nematoda: Rhabditidae): A Facultatively Pathogenic Nematode from Chongming Island, China

A new species, Oscheius microvilli n. sp., was found on Chongming Island (Shanghai, China). The new species is morphologically similar to the type strain of Oscheius myriophilus, but can be distinguished from it and other species of Oscheius on the basis of unique morphological characteristics of the bursa as well as male papillae. In this new species, the male bursal papillar formula is 2, 1, 3, 3 with everted tips in the first, fifth, and seventh pairs. The bursal rim is jagged

ONE-SHOT THREE-DIMENSIONAL SURFACE PROFILOMETRY USING DMD-BASED TWO-FREQUENCY MOIRÉ AND FOURIER TRANSFORM TECHNIQUE

This article presents an optical measurement method for acquiring rapidly accurate geometric 3-D surface morphology of objects. To achieve high-speed profilometry and avoid disturbance due to in-field vibration, one-shot Fourier transform profilometry (FTP) using twowavelength digital moiré pattern was developed to detect the morphology of the measured object at a speed of up to 60 frames or more per second. Single-fringe interferogram sufficient for FTP can be rapidly captured within a

Mild Traumatic Brain Injury: Adapting to Consequences

Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) affects more than 28,000 individuals annually in Thailand; however, little information about outcome after mTBI is known. This investigation aimed to explore consequences of mTBI among Thai adults who experienced mTBI in the previous 3-12 months. A sample of 135 adults was interviewed. Subjects were typically men, middle aged and approximately half were married. All completed the compulsory level of education in Thailand and were in the low income bracket

However, such procedures are either painful or yield false negatives during the initial diagnosis or the following therapeutic period. Ultrasonography (US) has been suggested as a non-invasive and inexpensive tool for the visualization of the entire median nerve and its surroundings(3). Past data supports the utilization of US not only in the initial diagnosis of CTS, but also in determining the efficacy of applied

ABO discrepancy with monoclonal ABO reagents caused by a pH-dependent autoantibody

ABO discrepancy was noted when a patient’s unwashed saline red cell suspension was tested with monoclonal ABO reagents. The discrepancy was resolved when a washed (x 3) saline red cell suspension was used in repeat testing. The patient’s serum contained an autoagglutinin that reacted optimally below pH 7.0. The discrepancy occurred when monoclonal ABO reagents, formulated at a low pH, lowered the pH of the reaction mixture, and autoagglutination was observed.
