Presynaptic Ca(V)2.2 (N-type) calcium channels are subject to modulation by interaction with syntaxin 1 and by a syntaxin 1-sensitive Galpha(O) G-protein pathway. We used biochemical analysis of neuronal tissue lysates and a new quantitative test of colocalization by intensity correlation analysis at the giant calyx-type presynaptic terminal of the chick(More)
Unconventional T cells such as γδ T cells, natural killer T cells (NKT cells) and mucosal-associated invariant T cells (MAIT cells) are a major component of the immune system; however, the cytokine signaling pathways that control their development and function in humans are unknown. Primary immunodeficiencies caused by single gene mutations provide a unique(More)
This study investigated the characterization and flocculation mechanism of a bioflocculant prepared using potato starch wastewater. The optimal culture conditions of this strain were determined as 4 g K2HPO4, 2 g KH2PO4, 0.2 g MgSO4, 0.1 g NaCl, and 2.0 g urea dissolved in 1.0 L potato starch wastewater with no need of adding carbon sources or adjusting pH(More)
We demonstrate a system that allows the user to perform 3D modelling and sculpting using postures and 3D movements of their hands. The system utilises the concept of a Natural User Interface using computer vision techniques. This enables the user to operate 3D modelling software. The system's bimanual control allows left hand postures to select control mode(More)
Elastic surface deformation of an object is described using depth information obtained at video frame-rate with camera calibration and stereo matching techniques. Two synchronised USB cameras acquire successive image pairs describing the surface deformation. Images are corrected to exclude lens distortion and generate rectified stereo pairs. The depth(More)
