We used 2',7'-bis(carboxyethyl)-5(6)-carboxyflourescein (BCECF), a pH-sensitive fluorescent dye, to study intracellular pH (pH(i)) regulation in neurons in CO(2) chemoreceptor and nonchemoreceptor regions in the pulmonate, terrestrial snail, Helix aspersa. We studied pH(i) during hypercapnic acidosis, after ammonia prepulse, and during isohydric(More)
The Rho GTPases-Rho, Rac, and Cdc42-control an enormous variety of processes, many of which reflect activation of these GTPases in spatially confined and mutually exclusive zones. By using mathematical models and experimental results to establish model parameters, we analyze the formation and segregation of Rho and Cdc42 zones during Xenopus oocyte wound(More)
Integration of electronic components into textile structures is a key requirement for smart clothing applications, particularly those in which electronics must be distributed over the body surface. Scalable manufacturing techniques for textile-integration of components are a key need in the wearables industry. Here, we introduce a novel technique for(More)
The pandemic H1N1/09 influenza virus differs from seasonal influenza in its greater prevalence among younger individuals. It is well known that younger individuals interact with one another and society as a whole more than older individuals, suggesting that this could account for the skewed prevalence. However, the observed skewed disease prevalence could(More)
