This paper describes our system for the Entity Recognition and Disambiguation Challenge 2014. There are two tasks: one to find entities in queries (Short Track), the other to find entities in texts from web pages (Long Track). We have participated in both tracks with the same system tuned to each of the tasks. On the final test set, we reached the(More)
The development of the secondary palate has been a main topic in craniofacial research, as its failure results in cleft palate, one of the most common birth defects in human. Nevertheless, palatal rugae (or rugae palatinae), which are transversal ridges developing on the secondary palate, received little attention. However, rugae could be useful as(More)
A new type of bottom-emission electroluminescent device is described in which a metal oxide is used as the electron-injecting contact. The preparation of such a device is simple. It consists of the deposition of a thin layer of a metal oxide on top of an indium tin oxide covered glass substrate, followed by the solution processing of the light-emitting(More)
The proper positioning of organs during development is essential, yet little is known about the regulation of this process in mammals. Using murine tooth development as a model, we have found that cell migration plays a central role in positioning of the organ primordium. By combining lineage tracing, genetic cell ablation, and confocal live imaging, we(More)
An understanding of the factors that promote or inhibit tooth development is essential for designing biological tooth replacements. The embryonic mouse dentition provides an ideal system for studying such factors because it consists of two types of tooth primordia. One type of primordium will go on to form a functional tooth, whereas the other initiates(More)
It is known from paleontology studies that two premolars have been lost during mouse evolution. During mouse mandible development, two bud-like structures transiently form that may represent rudimentary precursors of the lost premolars. However, the interpretation of these structures and their significance for mouse molar development are highly(More)
Human proteinase inhibitor-9 (PI-9)/serpinB9 is an intracellular ovalbumin-family serpin with nucleocytoplasmic distribution which is expressed in certain normal cell types and cancer cells of different origin. Due to binding and inactivating of granzyme B (GrB), PI-9 can protect the cells from GrB-mediated apoptosis. High levels of PI-9 expression in(More)
Prenatal development in crocodilians represents a very interesting model for comparative studies. As the speed of prenatal development of crocodilians varies depending on incubation conditions, the staging of embryos and fetuses is a very important prerequisite for data correlation. To establish a background for future developmental studies on Crocodylus(More)
The formation of mineralized tissues is governed by extracellular matrix proteins that assemble into a 3D organic matrix directing the deposition of hydroxyapatite. Although the formation of bones and dentin depends on the self-assembly of type I collagen via the Gly-X-Y motif, the molecular mechanism by which enamel matrix proteins (EMPs) assemble into the(More)
BACKGROUND The concentrations of glucose and lactate in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) provide important information about energy metabolism in the CSF compartment. To improve our understanding of this information we introduced a new parameter resulting from a formula for calculating the fictitious production of adenosine triphosphate, i.e., the coefficient of(More)
