Pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) is the precursor to several pituitary hormones including adrenocorticotropic hormone and beta-endorphin (beta-END). POMC is also expressed in the brain, predominantly in discrete neuronal cell populations of the hypothalamus. In the pituitary and brain, POMC undergoes tissue-specific proteolysis to release different bioactive(More)
It is still unclear why the transition temperature T c of cuprate superconductors falls with underdoping. The doping dependence of the critical magnetic field H c2 is directly relevant to this question, but different estimates of H c2 are in sharp contradiction. We resolve this contradiction by tracking the characteristic field scale of superconducting(More)
We have previously shown that angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) was expressed by epithelial cells of the rabbit gastric mucosa. In a search to obtain a cell model to study the regulation of ACE expression of gastric origin and its relationship with gastrin-cholecystokinin peptides, which have been proposed as ACE substrates, we investigated whether the(More)

We explore the feasibility of reconstructing some 3D surface information of the human fundus present in a sequence of fluorescein angiograms. The angiograms are taken during the same examination with an uncalibrated camera. The camera is still and we assume that the natural head/eye micro movement is large enough to create the necessary view change for the(More)
Incoming and outgoing solar radiation couple with heat exchange at Earth's surface to drive weather patterns that redistribute heat and moisture around the globe, creating an atmospheric heat engine. Here, we investigate the engine's work output using thermodynamic diagrams computed from reanalyzed observations and from a climate model simulation with(More)

The pseudogap is a partial gap in the electronic density of states that opens in the normal (non-superconducting) state of cuprate superconductors and whose origin is a long-standing puzzle. Its connection to the Mott insulator phase at low doping (hole concentration, p) remains ambiguous and its relation to the charge order that reconstructs the Fermi(More)
BACKGROUND Tumor thickness has been shown in oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma (OTSCC) to be a predictor of cervical metastasis. The postoperative histological measurement is certainly the most accurate, but it would be of clinical interest to gain this information prior to treatment planning. This retrospective study aimed to compare the tumor thickness(More)
The aim of the present investigation was to determine whether endothelin (ET) could be expressed in and released from the human leukemia megakaryoblastic cell lines HEL, MEG-01, DAMI and the normal human platelet progenitors. Using the reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) on total RNA isolated from the cells, we amplified a cDNA of the(More)
Angiotensin I converting enzyme (ACE) is a dipeptidyl carboxypeptidase synthesized by endothelial cells from many vascular beds as well as by extravascular tissues. Two forms of ACE have been characterized, a pulmonary form and a testicular form. Previously, in the gastrointestinal tract, we localized ACE in the rabbit gastric fundic tissue. In the present(More)
