We report on transgenic mouse lines in which several sensory systems in the brain are specifically visualized genetically. We employed GAP-lacZ as an axon-targeted reporter protein that was constructed by fusing the membrane-anchoring domain of the GAP-43 protein to lacZ. The reporter gene was introduced into the genome under the control of a promoter(More)
The orphan nuclear receptor Ad4BP/SF-1 (adrenal 4 binding protein/steroidogenic factor 1) is essential for the proper development and function of reproductive and steroidogenic tissues. Although the expression of Ad4BP/SF-1 is specific for those tissues, the mechanisms underlying this tissue-specific expression remain unknown. In this study, we used(More)
The nuclear receptor Ad4BP/SF-1 is essential for development of the adrenal cortex and the gonads, which derive from a common adrenogonadal primordium. The adrenal cortex subsequently forms morphologically distinct compartments: the inner (fetal) and outer (definitive or adult) zones. Despite considerable effort, the mechanisms that mediate the differential(More)
The orphan nuclear receptor AD4BP/SF-1 (adrenal-4-binding protein/steroidogenic factor-1 (NR5A1)) is essential for the proper development and function of reproductive and steroidogenic tissues. Although the expression of Ad4BP/Sf-1 is specific for those tissues, the mechanisms underlying this tissue-specific expression remain unknown. Our transgenic studies(More)
Due to the increasing use of encryption by video content providers, a vast majority of global Internet traffic is going to be encrypted soon. While the encryption of video content is positive from an end-user perspective, it negatively impacts the ability of network operators to employ network performance monitoring and management techniques. Network(More)
This paper reports on the dissipation of heat generated by a high power LED array using piezoelectric fans. Both numerical and experimental studies were carried out to evaluate the heat dissipation efficiency of high power LED package operating under multiple vibrating fans. Two vibrating fans were vertically oriented to the LED package and arranged(More)
