Thirty-six male Sprague-Dawley rats with an average beginning weight of 360 grams were trained for 5 weeks with an exercise program consisting of swimming for 35 minutes a day in water at 35 ° C. At the end of this training period one of the trained groups terminated the exercise program, while the remaining experimental group of animals detrained by(More)
We hypothesized that the calcineurin-nuclear factor of activated T-cells (NFAT) pathway is activated following partial bladder outlet obstruction (pBOO), which would allow for pharmacologic treatment to prevent the ensuing bladder wall hypertrophy. Using a model of pBOO in male mice, we were able to demonstrate increased nuclear importation of the(More)
As the third millennium dawns, the United States is in the midst of a " bridge crisis " : Maintenance needs for older bridges have far outpaced available resources. This situation indicates the need not only for improved repair and rehabilitation techniques but also for a comprehensive approach to bridge management. Fortunately, advances in the power of(More)
A scalable resonant gate drive circuit is described, suitable for driving series-connected MOSFETs in high-voltage, high-speed inverter applications for resistive and capacitive loads. Galvanic isolation is provided by a loop of high voltage wire, which also serves as the resonant inductor in the circuit. Fast dynamic voltage sharing is achieved by(More)
