During pregnancy, a specialized type of NK cell accumulates in the lining of the uterus (decidua) and interacts with semiallogeneic fetal trophoblast cells. dNK cells are functionally and phenotypically distinct from PB NK and are implicated in regulation of trophoblast transformation of the uterine spiral arteries, which if inadequately performed, can(More)
The application of lower hybrid waves (LH) in H-mode plasmas on Alcator C-Mod can result in significant reduction of core particle inventory, with no significant degradation of energy confinement. This phenomenon has been observed in steady enhanced D α (EDA) H-mode targets, which are sustained by ion cyclotron RF auxiliary heating, in which pedestal(More)
