T cells play a major role in the development of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) in nonobese diabetic (NOD) mice. Administration of interleukin 12 (IL-12), a key cytokine which guides the development of T helper type 1 (Th1) CD4+ T cells, induces rapid onset of IDDM in NOD, but not in BALB/c mice. Histologically, IL-12 administration induces(More)
This application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) computes two optically encoded positions, each engraved in a pattern onto one of a two-cylinder assembly. The cylinders are coupled by a torsion bar of known stiffness so that the difference between the two extracted positions provides a torque measurement to be used in next-generation automobile(More)
The recent recession has shone a very public spotlight on the perilous financial conditions of many American states. At the same time, it has renewed academic interest in the question of excessive state debt—its causes and possible cures. Scholars who see risk externalization as a primary driver of systematic overborrowing have proposed bankruptcy(More)
It is widely held that the spatial resolution achievable by NMR microscopic imaging is limited in biological systems by diffusion to approximately 1-5 microns. However, these estimates were developed for specific imaging techniques and represent practical rather than fundamental limits. NMR imaging is limited by the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Diffusion(More)
