It was recently shown that cellular turnover occurs within the human adipocyte population. Through three independent experimental approaches--dilution of an inducible histone 2B-green fluorescent protein (H2BGFP), labeling with the cell cycle marker Ki67 and incorporation of BrdU--we characterized the degree of cellular turnover in murine adipose tissue. We(More)
Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) offer a renewable source of cells that can be expanded indefinitely and differentiated into virtually any type of cell in the human body, including neurons. This opens up unprecedented possibilities to study neuronal cell and developmental biology and cellular pathology of the nervous system, provides a platform for the(More)
The spin-freezing process in underdoped cuprate superconductors, observed most by NMR-NQR relaxation and muon spin rotation and sometimes interpreted as coexistence of antiferromagnetic and superconducting states, is generally thought to result from randomly distributed magnetic moments related to charge inhomogeneities (possibly stripes) which exhibit(More)
Anomalous doping dependence of the fluctuation-induced diamagnetism in superconductors of YBCO family. Abstract SQUID magnetization measurements in oriented powders of Y 1−x Ca x Ba 2 Cu 3 O y , with x ranging from 0 to 0.2, for y ≈ 6.1 and y ≈ 6.97, have been performed in order to study the doping dependence of the fluctuating diamagnetism above the(More)
