The paper starts with a comparative discussion of features and limitations of the three types of recent approaches to the reconstruction in thermoacoustic/photoacoustic tomography: backprojection formulas, eigenfunction expansions, and time reversal. The latter method happens to be the least restrictive. It is then considered in more detail, e.g. its(More)
We compared the patterns of the pro-inflammatory cytokines, interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), interleukin-2 (IL-2) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), and the anti-inflammatory cytokines, interleukin-10 (IL-10) and tumor growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) from peripheral blood of male and female patients with relapsing-remitting (RR) and secondary(More)
In our cloning strategy to identify tyrosine kinases implicated in the regulation of prostate growth, the dog fer cDNA was obtained and shown to be highly homologous to known fer cDNAs. Using a polyclonal Fer antibody directed against a C-terminal peptide, we studied its associations with cortactin, beta-catenin and p120Cas in human prostate carcinoma PC-3(More)
Molecules of keystone significance are relatively rare, yet mediate a variety of interactions between organisms. They influence the distribution and abundance of species, the transfer of energy across multiple trophic levels, and thus they play significant roles in structuring ecosystems. Despite their potential importance in facilitating our understanding(More)
African weakly electric mormyrid fish show a high diversity of their electric organ discharge (EOD) both across and within genera. Thanks to a recently developed technique of artificial reproduction in mormyrid fish, we were able to perform hybridizations between different genera and within one genus (Campylomormyrus). The hybrids of intergenus(More)
Reproduction in captivity of four species of the mormyrid genus Campylomormyrus was investigated. Cyclical reproduction was provoked by changing water conductivity (C) alone: decreasing C led to gonadal recrudescence, an increase induced gonad regression. Data on the reproduction and development of three species are presented. All three species are(More)
Recovery from the Flint Water Crisis has been hindered by uncertainty in both the water testing process and the causes of contamination. In this work, we develop an ensemble of predictive models to assess the risk of lead contamination in individual homes and neighborhoods. To train these models, we utilize a wide range of data sources, including voluntary(More)
Ondansetron was formulated into a transdermal matrix patch to reduce side effects and improve patient compliance. The effects of adhesive (polyisobutylene rubber, acrylic, and styrene butadiene rubber), crosslinker content (aluminum), vehicle (lactic acid), and drug amount on ondansetron skin permeation rate were investigated using excised hairless mouse(More)
Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a critical step in the acquisition of the migratory and invasive capabilities associated with metastatic competence. Cysteine-rich protein 61 (CCN1/Cyr61) has been implicated as an important mediator in the proliferation and metastasis of breast cancer. Hence, Cyr61 and associated pathways are attractive targets(More)
