Cells lining the gastrointestinal tract serve as both a barrier to and a pathway for infectious agent entry. Dendritic cells (DCs) present in the lamina propria under the columnar villus epithelium of the small bowel extend processes across this epithelium and capture bacteria, but previous studies provided limited information on the nature of the stimuli,(More)
Natural killer (NK) cells promote dendritic cell (DC) maturation and influence T cell differentiation in vitro. To better understand the nature of the putative interactions among these cells in vivo during the early phases of an adaptive immune response, we have used immunohistochemical analysis and dynamic intravital imaging to study NK cell localization(More)
This paper proposes the software architecture and functions of a development kit for integrating photo-realistic panoramic images with 3-D graphics objecfs in virtual worlds. In graphics-based virtual reality applications, the complexity of the modeled virtual worla5 dominates the rendering performance of systems. Therefore, many virtual reality(More)
Cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (Cdk5) is a ubiquitously expressed serine/threonine kinase. However, a requirement for Cdk5 has been demonstrated only in postmitotic neurons where there is abundant expression of its activating partners p35 and/or p39. Although hyperactivation of the Cdk5-p35 complex has been found in a variety of inflammatory neurodegenerative(More)
In this pilot project, we demonstrate a preliminary workflow for incorporating real time, " crowdsourced " data into disaster relief routing, using search and rescue (SAR) operations in the aftermath of the 2010 Haiti earthquake as a test setting. We develop two simple models of relief routing: one with real time data and one without. We use road and(More)
The widespread availability of wireless networks has created an increased interest in harnessing them for other purposes, such as localizing mobile devices. Our particular goal was to be able to use these techniques as well as others in order to better predict the location of a smart phone inside a building. The current state of the art techniques use(More)
