Robust development of the early embryo may benefit from mechanisms that ensure that not all pluripotent cells differentiate at exactly the same time: such mechanisms would build flexibility into the process of lineage allocation. This idea is supported by the observation that pluripotent stem cells differentiate at different rates in vitro. We use a clonal(More)
Two male patients were diagnosed with adrenomyeloneuropathy. Their chief problems were progressive spastic paraparesis, sensory impairment, hyperpigmentation and testis atrophy. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) does not easily elicit motor-evoked potentials (MEPs) in patients with a central nervous system dysfunction, even though a few methods, such(More)
The events that prime pluripotent cells for differentiation are not well understood. Inhibitor of DNA binding/differentiation (Id) proteins, which are inhibitors of basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor activity, contribute to pluripotency by blocking sequential transitions toward differentiation. Using yeast-two-hybrid screens, we have(More)
INTRODUCTION Nitrous oxide (N2O) damages the nervous system of chronic abusers. Multimodal evoked potentials (EPs) can help document the electrophysiological abnormalities of N2O abusers and its distribution in the nervous system. CASE REPORT A 41-year-old male N2O abuser had used N2O (4-5 cans/per day, about 2000 ml/can) for more than 10 years. He(More)
This paper proposes a selective pattern-compression scheme to minimize both test power and test data volume during scan-based testing. The proposed scheme will selectively supply the test patterns either through the <i>compressed scan chain</i> whose scanned values will be decoded to the original scan cells, or directly through the original scan chain using(More)
In this study, we investigate the characteristics and electrochemical properties of graphene nanosheets derived from chemical-thermal exfoliation processes of SFG44 synthetic graphite (SFG44-GNS). The characterizations and electrochemical measurements were carried out by means of X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron(More)
This paper reports a versatile nano-sensor technology using "top-down" poly-silicon nanowire field-effect transistors (FETs) in the conventional Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS)-compatible semiconductor process. The nanowire manufacturing technique reduced nanowire width scaling to 50 nm without use of extra lithography equipment, and(More)
