The cytochrome P450 (CYP) gene products such as CYP3A and CYP2B are essential for the metabolism of steroid hormones and xenochemicals including prescription drugs. Nuclear receptor SXR/PXR (steroid and xenobiotic receptor/pregnenolone X receptor) has been shown both biochemically and genetically to activate CYP3A genes, while similar studies have… (More)
The cytochrome CYP3A gene products, expressed in mammalian liver, are essential for the metabolism of lipophilic substrates, including endogenous steroid hormones and prescription drugs. CYP3A enzymes are extremely versatile and are inducible by many of their natural and xenobiotic substrates. Consequently, they form the molecular basis for many clinical… (More)
In this report, we demonstrate that, in contrast to most previously characterized nuclear receptors, hERR1 and hERR2 (human estrogen receptor-related protein 1 and -2) are constitutive activators of the classic estrogen response element (ERE) as well as the palindromic thyroid hormone response element (TRE(pal)) but not the glucocorticoid response element… (More)
— Sphere decoding (SD) allows to solve high-dimensional MIMO maximum likelihood detection problems with significantly lower complexity than other methods. The SD algorithm has, however, mostly only been analyzed with DSP implementations in mind. We show that VLSI implementations call for new performance metrics, analyze the resulting implementation… (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)
Stitched e-textile circuits facilitate wearable, flexible, comfortable wearable technology. However, while stitched methods of e-textile circuits are common, multi-layer circuit creation remains a challenge. Here, we present methods of stitched multi-layer circuit creation using accessible tools and techniques.
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)
