Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK) catalyzes a committed and rate-limiting step in hepatic gluconeogenesis, and its activity is tightly regulated to maintain blood glucose levels within normal limits. PEPCK activity is primarily regulated through hormonal control of gene transcription. Transcription is additionally regulated via a cAMP response unit,(More)
An increased incidence of pertussis has been observed recently in adults, and healthcare workers (HCWs) are considered a risk group for transmission to infants. Prevalence of recent pertussis infection was assessed in HCWs from a paediatric department of a tertiary care hospital in Brazil. Serum pertussis toxin IgG antibodies were measured by enzyme-linked(More)
New concept of analog front end circuitry and an operation scheme for strain sensors is proposed in order to realize ultra low power devices for structure health monitoring. In this paper, instead of the commonly used 120Ω strain gauge, we utilize 1 ΚΩ strain gauge considering the tradeoff between signal to noise ratio and the power(More)
