Mouse beta-casein gene promoter contains a region termed block C which is crucial for its gene transcription induced by lactogenic hormones. Nuclear extracts from mouse mammary glands contain at least two binding complexes (DS1 and DS2) which specifically bind to double-stranded block C region DNA. The binding sequence of these complexes was identified to(More)
We report on the design, fabrication, and measurement of ultrathin film a-Si:H solar cells with nanostructured plasmonic back contacts, which demonstrate enhanced short circuit current densities compared to cells having flat or randomly textured back contacts. The primary photocurrent enhancement occurs in the spectral range from 550 nm to 800 nm. We use(More)
Regulation of the PI3K-protein kinase B/Akt (serine/threonine kinase) cascade by PRL-releasing peptide (PrRP) and insulin in GH3 rat pituitary tumor cells was investigated. PrRP and insulin rapidly and transiently stimulated the activation of Akt, and the PI3K inhibitor wortmannin blocked the PrRP- or insulin-induced activation of Akt. Both pertussis toxin(More)
We report a defect state based guided-wave photoconductive detector at 1360-1630 nm telecommunication wavelength directly in standard microelectronics CMOS processes, with zero in-foundry process modification. The defect states in the polysilicon used to define a transistor gate assists light absorption. The body crystalline silicon helps form an inverse(More)
