–We describe a concept for circuit protection and fault current limitation in DC power systems based on the use of solid-state power switches. The approach could be useful in the increasingly widespread application of DC power distribution networks. During normal operation the power switch is always " on ". During faults, the gate of the solid-state switch(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies are X-linked diseases caused by mutations in the dystrophin gene, which affect approximately 1 in 3,500 and 1 in 18,000 boys, respectively. The aim of this work was to develop a method to assist the diagnosis and classification of the disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS A large data set of(More)
— The US electricity grid is a national infrastructure that has the potential to deliver significant amounts of the daily driving energy for the US light duty vehicle (cars, pickups, SUVs, and vans) fleet. This paper discusses a 2030 scenario with 37 million plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) on the road in the US demanding electricity for an average(More)
BACKGROUND Idiopathic congenital talipes equinovarus (ICTEV) is a congenital limb deformity. Based on extended transmission disequilibrium testing, Gli-Kruppel family member 3 (Gli3) has been identified as a candidate gene for ICTEV. Here, we verify the role of Gli3 in ICTEV development. METHODS Using the rat ICTEV model, we analyzed the differences in(More)
