Little is known of how plant disease resistance (R) proteins recognize pathogens and activate plant defenses. Rcr3 is specifically required for the function of Cf-2, a Lycopersicon pimpinellifolium gene bred into cultivated tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) for resistance to Cladosporium fulvum. Rcr3 encodes a secreted papain-like cysteine endoprotease.(More)
Bioelectric phenomena have been found to exert influence on various developmental and regenerative processes. Little is known about their possible functions and the cellular mechanisms by which they might act during Drosophila oogenesis. In developing follicles, characteristic extracellular current patterns and membrane-potential changes in oocyte and nurse(More)
Thyroid acting through ligand binding to nuclear receptors modifies myocardial respiratory kinetics and oxidative phosphorylation in the heart. Direct nongenomic action of thyroid hormone on high-energy phosphate concentrations and respiratory kinetics has never been proven in vivo but might be responsible for observed changes in oxygen utilization(More)
We report about evaluations of the LAST MINUTE corpus which comprises multimodal recordings (audio, video, biopsychological data, verbatim transcripts, psychological questionnaires, in-depth user interviews) of Wizard of Oz simulated naturalistic human companion interactions in German. Based on the results of these analyses we discuss consequences for the(More)
PURPOSE Multimodality mammography using conventional 2D mammography and dynamic contrast-enhanced 3D magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) is frequently performed for breast cancer detection and diagnosis. Combination of both imaging modalities requires superimposition of corresponding structures in mammograms and MR images. This task is challenging due to(More)
Model-based image analysis is indispensable in medical image processing. One key aspect of building statistical shape and appearance models is the determination of one-to-one correspondences in the training data set. At the same time, the identification of these correspondences is the most challenging part of such methods. In our earlier work, we developed(More)
