We report that Id knockout mouse embryos display multiple cardiac defects, but mid-gestation lethality is rescued by the injection of 15 wild-type embryonic stem (ES) cells into mutant blastocysts. Myocardial markers altered in Id mutant cells are restored to normal throughout the chimeric myocardium. Intraperitoneal injection of ES cells into female mice(More)
The expression of the vitamin K-dependent gamma-glutamyl carboxylase gene in liver is developmentally regulated. Since the gene product catalyzes an essential post-translational modification of the vitamin K-dependent blood coagulation proteins, the regulation of carboxylase expression is critical for hemostasis. We analyzed the activity of the rat(More)
This paper introduces a multi-model ontology-based framework for semantic search of educational content in E-learning repository of courses, lectures, multimedia resources, etc. This hybrid recommender system is driven by two types of recommendations: content-based (domain ontology model) and rule-based (learner’s interest-based and cluster-based).(More)
In this paper, we describe an integrated and working Elearning search system for retrieving personalized semantically enriched learning resources. Within this context, this work proposes an architecture divided into four layers: (1) Semantic Representation (knowledge representation), (2) Algorithms, which are the core engine of this study, (3)(More)
—One of the first Multi-Language Information Retrieval (MLIR) systems was implemented in 1969 by Gerard Salton who enhanced his SMART system to retrieve multilingual documents in two languages, English and German. However, the research field of MLIR is still struggling since the majority of information retrieval systems are monolingual and more precisely(More)
HyperManyMedia is a search and browse information retrieval system that provides access to online learning materials. This system offers metadata/ontology-based searching mechanism that allows learners to enter a simple search term and then recommends them with meta-data/semantically related terms (concepts/subconcepts). HyperMany-Media integrates several(More)
OBJECTIVE Various concussion characteristics and personal factors are associated with cognitive recovery in athletes. We developed an index based on concussion frequency, severity, and timeframe, as well as cognitive reserve (CR), and we assessed its predictive power regarding cognitive ability in retired professional football players. METHOD Data from 40(More)
