In the CNS of leech, the central projections of peripheral sensory neurons segregate into three distinct axonal tracts during early development. We have previously shown that a subset of these neurons, recognized by the monoclonal antibody lan 4-2, projects axons into only one of these fascicles (Johansen et al., 1992, Neuron 8, 599). Here we report on a(More)
The mAb lan3-6 recognizes a cytosolic antigen which is selectively expressed in the growth cones and axons of a small subset of peripheral sensory neurons fasciculating in a single tract common to all hirudinid leeches. We have used this antibody to clone a novel EF-hand calcium-binding protein, calsensin, by screening an expression vector library. A(More)
Tissue-engineered nasal septal cartilage may provide a source of autologous tissue for repair of craniofacial defects. Although advances have been made in manipulating the chondrocyte culture environment for production of neocartilage, consensus on the best oxygen tension for in vitro growth of tissue-engineered cartilage has not been reached. The objective(More)
This session will explore different approaches to the use of computer game design in formal/informal learning environments. Game design is becoming a popular strategy for enhancing young people's interest and skills with computer technology, and for purposes ranging from deepening their understanding of scientific principles to fostering critical media(More)
