—Ecosystem responses to interannual weather variability are large and superimposed over any long-term directional climatic responses making it difficult to assign causal relationships to vegetation change. Better understanding of ecosystem responses to interannual climatic variability is crucial to predicting long-term functioning and stability.(More)
Teleost retinas adapted to light show numerous spinules invaginated in the cone pedicles and small nematosomes in the distal horizontal cells. Darkness induces the dissolution of spinules and the presence of large and numerous nematosomes. The aim of this work is to study the influence of optic nerve integrity on spinule formation/dissolution and changes in(More)
Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) has been implicated in stimulating retinal ganglion cell (RGC) survival and axonal regeneration in rodent animal models in vivo and in vitro, but very little data are available on neurotrophin effects in higher mammals. We hence analysed BDNF signalling in primary cultures of adult pig RGC. As detected by(More)
Vascular remodeling of the mouse embryonic yolk sac is a highly dynamic process dependent on multiple genetic signaling pathways as well as biomechanical factors regulating proliferation, differentiation, migration, cell-cell, and cell-matrix interactions. During this early developmental window, the initial primitive vascular network of the yolk sac(More)
—A 14.025 Gb/s multi-media transceiver employs on-die Rx AC coupling with baseline wander correction and equalizes up to 26 dB insertion loss at 14.025 Gb/s with a linear equalizer, 10-tap DFE, and 4-tap Tx FIR filter in SST driver. The proposed techniques enable direct feedback for 1st-tap ISI cancellation , and positions of four DFE taps to be adapted(More)
The Transforming growth factor β (Tgf-β) pathway, by signaling via the activation of Smad transcription factors, induces the expression of many diverse downstream target genes thereby regulating a vast array of cellular events essential for proper development and homeostasis. In order for a specific cell type to properly interpret the Tgf-β signal and(More)
