The human core promoter binding protein (hCPBP) has been identified as a DNA-binding protein involved in the regulation of TATA box-less genes like those encoding the pregnancy-specific glycoproteins. Structurally, hCPBP contains three zinc fingers in the C-terminal domain, which is highly conserved in a number of proteins that constitute the Krüppel-like(More)
Human pregnancy-specific glycoproteins (PSG) are major placental polypeptides encoded by eleven highly conserved genes expressed by the syncytiotrophoblast. The minimal promoter region of all PSG genes contains a putative Retinoic Acid Responsive Element (RARE) though the ability of retinoids to regulate PSG gene expression has not been established.(More)
A sensing estimation scheme is presented that combines analog and threshold sensing on a piezoelectric microactuator for calibration of microscale inertial sensors. Using a variation of the Kalman filter, an asynchronous threshold sensor improves state estimates obtained from less reliable analog sensor measurements of microactuator motion. The resulting(More)
A threshold sensing strategy for improving measurement accuracy of a piezoelectric microactuator in calibration of miniature Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) is presented. An asynchronous threshold sensor is hypothesized as a way to improve state estimates obtained from analog sensor measurements of microactuator motion. To produce accurate periodic(More)
