The nature of kinesin interactions with membrane-bound organelles and mechanisms for regulation of kinesin-based motility have both been surprisingly difficult to define. Most kinesin is recovered in supernatants with standard protocols for purification of motor proteins, but kinesin recovered on membrane-bound organelles is tightly bound. Partitioning of(More)
Accepted for publication 6 November 1996 Abstract Objective-To determine the frequency of mutations in the regulatory domain ofthe gap junction protein connexin 43 in patients with visceroatrial heterotaxy. Design-Mutation screening of the terminal 200 base pairs of connexin43 gene coding sequence in a series of patients from tertiary care centres.(More)

Natural killer (NK) cell lymphomas/leukemias are rare neoplasms with an aggressive clinical behavior. The majority of the cases belong to extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type (ENKTL) in the current WHO classification scheme. Gene-expression profiling (GEP) of 21 ENKTL and NK-cell lymphoma/leukemia patients, 17 NK- and T-cell lines and 5 indolent(More)
In their study aligned oxide nanowires were defl ected by an ultrasonic-wave-induced mechanical stress and the number of active nanowires that produce electricity was estimated to be 1000 wires cm − 2 . However, the reported technique for generating piezoelectricity has disadvantages including: First, ceramics are brittle in nature and material fractures(More)
