—WindSat is a space-based polarimetric microwave ra-diometer designed to demonstrate the capability to measure the ocean surface wind vector using a radiometer. We describe a non-linear iterative algorithm for simultaneous retrieval of sea surface temperature, columnar water vapor, columnar cloud liquid water, and the ocean surface wind vector from WindSat(More)
The divalent metal ion transporter DMT1 is localized in the brush border membrane (BBM) of the upper small intestine and has been shown to be able to transport Mn2+, Fe2+, Co2+, Ni2+, and Cu2+. Belgrade rats have a glycine-to-arginine (G185R) mutation in DMT1, which affects its function. We investigated copper transport with BBM vesicles of Belgrade rats(More)
—WindSat is the first space-based polarimetric microwave radiometer. It is designed to evaluate the capability of polarimetric microwave radiometry to measure ocean surface wind vectors from space. The sensor provides risk reduction for the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System Conical Scanning Microwave Imager/Sounder, which is(More)
Summary 1. The non-selective K(+) channel blocker 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) has shown clinical efficacy in the treatment of neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis. The clinical usefulness of 4-AP is hampered by its ability to produce seizures. Nerispirdine, an analogue of 4-AP, is currently under clinical investigation for the treatment of multiple(More)
