Ecdysteroids coordinate development, reproduction and other essential biological processes in insects and other arthropods through the receptor which is a heterodimer of two members of the nuclear receptors superfamily, the ecdysteroid receptor (EcR) and the Ultraspiracle (Usp). Although the transcriptionally active EcR/Usp heterocomplex is believed to be(More)
A new class AB differential stage that operates with a single supply voltage of less than two transistor threshold voltages is introduced. This circuit has utilization in high slew rate one stage op-amps, two stage op-amps with class AB input and output stages and linear transconductors. The circuit was verified with simulations and experimentally. It it is(More)
Although molecular classification brings interesting insights into breast cancer taxonomy, its implementation in daily clinical care is questionable because of its expense and the information supplied in a single sample allocation is not sufficiently reliable. New approaches, based on a panel of small molecules derived from the global or targeted analysis(More)
Postembryonic development of holometabolous and hemimetabolous insects occurs through successive molts triggered by 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E). The molecular action of 20E has been extensively studied in holometabolous insects, but data on hemimetabolous are scarce. We have demonstrated that during the nymphal development of the hemimetabolous insect(More)
Metamorphosis in holometabolous insects is mainly based on the destruction of larval tissues. Intensive research in Drosophila melanogaster, a model of holometabolan metamorphosis, has shown that the steroid hormone 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E) signals cell death of larval tissues during metamorphosis. However, D. melanogaster shows a highly derived type of(More)
Receptor Tyrosine Kinase (RTK) signaling pathways induce multiple biological responses, often by regulating the expression of downstream genes. The HMG-box protein Capicua (Cic) is a transcriptional repressor that is downregulated in response to RTK signaling, thereby enabling RTK-dependent induction of Cic targets. In both Drosophila and mammals, Cic is(More)
