Amendment 6 for IEEE Standard for Information Technology – Telecommunications and information exchange between systems – Local and metropolitan area networks – [8] "Supplement to IEEE Standard for Information Technology telecommunications and information exchange between systems – local and metropolitan area networks – specific requirements. Part II:(More)
A 14nm logic technology using 2 nd-generation FinFET transistors with a novel subfin doping technique, self-aligned double patterning (SADP) for critical patterning layers, and air-gapped interconnects at performance-critical layers is described. The transistors feature rectangular fins with 8nm fin width and 42nm fin height, 4 th generation high-k metal(More)
Stargardt-like macular dystrophy (STGD3, MIM 600110) and autosomal dominant macular dystrophy (adMD) are inherited forms of macular degeneration characterized by decreased visual acuity, macular atrophy and extensive fundus flecks. Genetic mapping data suggest that mutations in a single gene may be responsible for both conditions, already known to bear(More)
Appearance of contractile filament-laden stromal cells or myofibroblasts is a characteristic of lung fibrotic lesions. The role of these cells in fibrosis and their cytoskeletal phenotype are not fully delineated. This study was undertaken to further investigate these issues using a model of lung fibrosis. Rats were treated endotracheally with bleomycin on(More)
The rapid development of a dense single-nucleotide-polymorphism marker map has stimulated numerous studies attempting to characterize the magnitude and distribution of background linkage disequilibrium (LD) within and between human populations. Although genotyping errors are an inherent problem in all LD studies, there have been few systematic(More)
Both nitric oxide (NO) and GABA are known to provide inhibitory inputs to the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus and are involved in the control of sympathetic outflow. The purpose of the present study was to examine the interaction of NO and GABA in the regulation of renal sympathetic nerve activity in rats. The responses of renal nerve(More)
Bluetongue virus (BTV) infection of ruminants is endemic throughout much of the US and China. The S10 and a portion of the L2 gene segments of Chinese prototype strains of BTV serotypes 1, 2, 3, 4, 12, 15, and 16 were sequenced and compared to the same genes of prototype and field strains of BTV from the US. Phylogenetic analysis of the S10 gene segregated(More)
BACKGROUND There is increasing evidence of therapeutic benefits from bone marrow (BM)-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) in various animal models with neurologic disorders. It is of great interest to apply the approach to clinical patients, i.e. to take the investigations from laboratory bench to the patient's bedside. This clinical trial was performed(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the usefulness of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI)-guided, single-voxel proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (SVS) for preoperative evaluation of cerebral glioma grade. METHODS For SVS, placement of volume-of-interest was guided by the minimal apparent diffusion coefficient value obtained from DWI. Spectral data for(More)
Two guanylate-cyclase-activating proteins (GCAP) encoded by a tail-to-tail gene array have been characterized in the mammalian retina. Using frog retina as a model, we obtained evidence for the presence of a photoreceptor Ca2+-binding protein closely related to GCAP. This protein (206 amino acids) does not stimulate guanylate cyclase (GC) in low [Ca2+], but(More)
