The development of ciliary band pattern in the doliolaria larva of Florometra serratissima is described based on scanning and transmission electron microscopy. The uniformly ciliated epithelium of the post-hatching larva develops four regularly spaced bands over a period of approx. 20 h generating an epithelial pattern that is, essentially, a series of(More)
BACKGROUND We attempted to clone candidate genes on 10p 14-15 which may regulate hTERT expression, through exon trapping using 3 BAC clones covering the region. After obtaining 20 exons, we examined the function of RGM249 (RGM: RNA gene for miRNAs) we cloned from primary cultured human hepatocytes and hepatoma cell lines. We confirmed approximately 20 bp(More)
We report the results of cutting experiments on embryos of the crinoid Florometra serratissima, which produce, in the doliolaria stage, a striped pattern of ciliary bands. Embryos at gastrula and post-hatching elongation stages were divided into anterior and posterior fragments. Complementary fragments express parts of the total pattern without adding extra(More)
Capacitive-type transduction is now widely used in MEMS microphones. However, its sensitivity decreases with reducing size, due to decreasing air gap capacitance. In the present study, we proposed and developed the Electret Gate of Field Effect Transistor (ElGoFET) transduction based on an electret and FET (field-effect-transistor) as a novel mechanism of(More)
