Functional telomeres are critical for stem cell proliferation; however, whether they are equally important for the stability of stem cell differentiation is not known. We found that mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) with critically short telomeres (Tert(-/-) ESCs) initiated normal differentiation after leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) withdrawal but, unlike(More)
In this paper a composite framework for collaborative working is presented. The framework includes real-time motion tracking based on computer vision from standard web-cams situated at different locations, data transmission and real-time animation of 3D avatars in a virtual world. Motion tracking is obtained without using markers, with weak constraints on(More)
Telomeres are the terminal structures at the ends of linear chromosomes that represent a solution to the end replication problem. Specific binding of the six-protein subunit complex shelterin to telomeric, repetitive TTAGGG DNA sequences contributes to the stable architecture and maintenance of telomeres. Proteins involved in the DNA damage response are(More)

I investigate whether the presence of intrinsically motivated agents benefits firms in a competitive environment. I find that firms may obtain higher profits by hiring self-interested agents than by hiring motivated agents. This is because the agents' intrinsic motivation has counteracting effects on the profits obtained by the firms. On the one hand,(More)
In this paper a multiuser motion capture system is presented, where users work from separate locations and interact in a common virtual environment. The system functions well on low-end personal computers; it implements a natural human/machine interaction due to the complete absence of markers and weak constraints on users' clothes and environment lighting.(More)
