The ability to target gene deletion to a specific cellular compartment via the Cre/loxP system has been a powerful tool in the analysis of broadly expressed genes. Here, we report the generation of a transgenic mouse line in which expression of Cre-recombinase is under the regulatory control of the VE-Cadherin promoter. Temporal distribution and activity of(More)
Orbital remote sensing instruments and systems can benefit from high performance, adaptable components. Field programmable SRAM-based gate arrays (FPGAs) are usually the chosen platform for real-time reconfigurable computing. This technology is driven by the commercial sector, so devices intended for the space environment must be adapted from commercial(More)

A comprehensive Single Event Effects (SEE) characterization of advanced commercial technologies was conducted using the heavy-ion test facility at Texas A&M. The components evaluated included a 322,000 gate Virtex reprogrammable FPGA (XQVR300) from Xilinx, and several manufacturers versions of 4Meg Zero Burst Turnaround (ZBT ) SRAMs. The SRAMs all(More)
OBJECT A spinal epidural abscess (SEA) is rare but potentially devastating if not diagnosed early. Unfortunately, diagnostic delays and associated neurological deficits are common. The objectives of this analysis were to explore the use of a novel clinical decision guideline to screen patients who present to the emergency department (ED) with spine pain for(More)
The Cibola Flight Experiment (CFE) is an experimental small satellite developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory to demonstrate the feasibility of using FPGA-based reconfigurable computing for sensor processing in a space environment. The CFE satellite was launched on March 8, 2007 in low-earth orbit and has operated extremely well since its(More)
Over the past 15 years many organizations have researched the use of Static-Random Access Memory (SRAM)-based Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) in space. Although the components can provide a performance improvement over radiation-hardened processing components, random soft errors can occur from the naturally occurring space radiation environment. Many(More)
Diquat is a bipyridyl herbicide with nephrotoxic effects. This in vitro study demonstrates a colorimetric test for detection of diquat in human urine. Urine specimens using ten concentrations of diquat herbicide solution and controls for urine and glyphosate were prepared. A two-step assay (addition of bicarbonate followed by sodium dithionite) was(More)
