EphB2 is a receptor tyrosine kinase of the Eph family and ephrin-B1 is one of its transmembrane ligands. In the embryo, EphB2 and ephrin-B1 participate in neuronal axon guidance, neural crest cell migration, the formation of blood vessels, and the development of facial structures and the inner ear. Interestingly, EphB2 and ephrin-B1 can both signal through(More)
The Eph family of receptor tyrosine kinases and the Abl family of non-receptor tyrosine kinases have both been implicated in tissue morphogenesis. They regulate the organization of the actin cytoskeleton in the developing nervous system and participate in signaling pathways involved in axon growth. Both Eph receptors and Abl are localized in the neuronal(More)
The cGMP-gated cation channel mediating phototransduction in retinal rods has recently been shown to be inhibited by calcium-calmodulin, through direct binding of the latter to the beta-subunit of the heterotetrameric channel complex. Here, we report the characterization of this inhibition and the identification of a domain crucial for this modulation.(More)
In contact with an environment, a solid may gain or lose mass due to, for example, deposition or etching. As the reaction proceeds, the surface of the solid moves, either extending or receding. If the solid is under stress, the elastic energy adds to the driving force of the reaction, and may cause the surface to roughen. This phenomenon has recently led to(More)
Evidence has accumulated recently that a crack can propagate on an interface between dissimilar solids at speeds between the smallest and the largest sonic speeds of the constituent solids. Such an intersonic crack has posed several challenges to the existing theory. Assuming that the crack tip is a structureless point, and the solids are linearly elastic(More)
Polystyrene (PS) opal and titania (TiO 2) inverse opal films were fabricated by the self-assembly colloidal crystal template technique. Based on Bragg's law, these sensors were used to detect the different concentrations of ethanol solution. The results indicated that TiO 2 inverse opal films were advantageous over PS opal film for detecting the ethanol(More)
