BACKGROUND Glutathione is considered essential for survival in mammalian cells and yeast but not in prokaryotic cells. The presence of a nuclear pool of glutathione has been demonstrated but its role in cellular proliferation and differentiation is still a matter of debate. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We have studied proliferation of 3T3 fibroblasts for a period(More)
Emotionally arousing events reach awareness more easily and evoke greater visual cortex activation than more mundane events. Recent studies have shown that they are also perceived more vividly and that emotionally enhanced perceptual vividness predicts memory vividness.

In spite of the knowledge underlying cause of this disease involving mutations of FERMT1 (fermitin family member 1), and efforts to characterize genotype-phenotype correlations, the(More)
We consider a problem in signal processing which deals with the recovery of a high-dimensional sparse signal based on a small number of measurements. Our goal is to apply the least absolute deviations (LAD) method in an algorithm that would essentially follow the steps of the orthogonal matching pursuit (OMP) algorithm that has been used mostly in this(More)
