—This paper reports a CMOS terahertz oscillator with a novel frequency selective negative resistance (FSNR) tank to boost its operating frequency. The demonstrated oscillator can operate at a fundamental frequency of about 0.22 THz, exceeding the CMOS device cutoff frequency of f T. The proposed architecture suppresses undesired 2nd and odd harmonics and(More)
Prion diseases are neurodegenerative disorders characterized by the accumulation of a disease-associated prion protein and apoptotic neuronal death. Previous studies indicated that the ubiquitous expression of c-Abl tyrosine kinase transduces a variety of extrinsic and intrinsic cellular signals. In this study, we demonstrated that a synthetic neurotoxic(More)
In developing ovarian follicles, the progesterone receptor (PGR) is essential for mediating transcription of key factors that coordinate cellular functions including follicular remodeling. With recent investigations examining the role of microRNA (miRNA) in regulating ovarian function we used a lentiviral approach to over express miR-378 in cultured primary(More)
—A single-feed circular microstrip antenna with recon-figurable polarization capability is proposed. This antenna has a simple structure, which consists of a radiating circular patch, five switches (PIN diode), three matching stubs, and a 50 microstrip feed line. It can be switched between 4 different states: two states (low-frequency and high-frequency)(More)
—A new low-profile broadband dual-frequency planar antenna is developed for wireless handsets. The dual-frequency antenna consists of a two-strip monopole for the 2-GHz band and a planar monopole for the 5-GHz band. The developed antenna features a low profile due to the introduction of an S-strip and a T-strip which are separately printed on the two sides(More)
—A printed dipole with an integrated balun features a broad operating bandwidth. The feed point of conventional balun structures is fixed at the top of the integrated balun, which makes it difficult to match to a 50-feed. In this communication, we demonstrate that it is possible to directly match with the 50-feed by adjusting the position of the feed point(More)
