The SOHO Ultraviolet Coronagraph Spectrometer (UVCS/SOHO) is being used to observe the extended solar corona from 1.25 to 10 R from Sun center. Initial observations of polar coronal holes and equatorial streamers are described. The observations include measurements of spectral line profiles for H I L and L , O VI 1032 Å and 1037 Å, Mg X 625 Å, Fe XII 1242 Å(More)
High throughput sequencing of a mouse keratinocyte library was used to identify an expressed sequence tag with homology to the epidermal growth factor (EGF) family of growth factors. We have named the protein encoded by this expressed sequence tag Epigen, for epithelial mitogen. Epigen encodes a protein of 152 amino acids that contains features(More)
Temporal colinearity describes a correspondence between the spatial ordering of Hox genes within their clusters (in the direction 3' to 5') and the time of their first expression (earlier to later) during embryonic development (Izpisúa-Belmonte et al. [1991] EMBO J. 10:2279-2289). It suggests that activation of each Hox gene might be controlled in some way(More)
By use of wholemount in situ hybridization, we show how expression of the chicken homeobox gene Hoxd-4 commences in the posterior part of the primitive streak and then spreads forward, covering most of the primitive streak by the 2 somite stage, covering the entire primitive streak by the 5 somite stage, reaching the somite 1/somite 2 level of the neural(More)
We present a self-consistent empirical model for several plasma parameters of a polar coronal hole near solar minimum, derived from observations with the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory Ultraviolet Coronagraph Spectrometer. The model describes the radial distribution of density for electrons, H , and O and the outflow 0 51 velocity and unresolved most(More)
Dermal papilla (DEPA) cells are resident at the base of hair follicles and are fundamental to hair growth and development. Cultured DEPA cells, in contrast to normal fibroblast cells, are capable of inducing de novo hair follicle growth in vivo. By differential screening of a DEPA cDNA library, we have demonstrated that dermal papilla cells are different(More)
We present a comprehensive and self-consistent empirical model for several plasma parameters in the extended solar corona above a polar coronal hole. The model is derived from observations with the SOHO Ultraviolet Coronagraph Spectrometer (UVCS/SOHO) during the period between 1996 November and 1997 April. We compare observations of H I Lya and O VI jj1032,(More)
We review the history of ultraviolet and extreme ultraviolet spectroscopy with a specific focus on such activities at the Naval Research Laboratory and on studies of the extended solar corona and solar-wind source regions. We describe the problem of forecasting solar energetic particle events and discuss an observational technique designed to solve this(More)
We present spectra of a three-part coronal mass ejection (CME) observed by the Ultraviolet Coronagraph Spectrometer aboard SOHO on 2000 February 11. Images of the CME in different spectral lines show how the morphology depends on the temperature, density, and outflow speed of the ejected plasma. The H i Ly is the line that best resembles the white-light(More)
The EUV Imaging Telescope (EIT), Large Angle Spectrometric Coronagraph (LASCO), and Ultraviolet Coronagraph Spectrometer (UVCS) instruments aboard the SOHO satellite observed a prominence eruption (coronal mass ejection) on 1997 December 12. Ejected plasma moved at about 130 km s~1 in the plane of the sky and showed Doppler shifts between [350 and ]30 km(More)
