We have found that two-photon fluorescence imaging of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) provides the sensitivity and spatial three-dimensional resolution to resolve metabolic signatures in processes of astrocytes and neurons deep in highly scattering brain tissue slices. This functional imaging reveals spatiotemporal partitioning of glycolytic and(More)
The peripheral nervous system has complex and intricate ramifications throughout many target organ systems. To date this system has not been effectively labeled by genetic markers, due largely to inadequate transcriptional specification by minimum promoter constructs. Here we describe transgenic mice in which enhanced green fluorescent protein (eGFP) is(More)
Males and females require different patterns of pituitary gonadotropin secretion for fertility. The mechanisms underlying these gender-specific profiles of pituitary hormone production are unknown; however, they are fundamental to understanding the sexually dimorphic control of reproductive function at the molecular level. Several studies suggest that ERK1(More)
In this work we explored the hypothesis that variation in the gene encoding apolipoprotein E (ApoE) is a factor modifying general cognitive ability (g). A case control sample of 101 high g and 101 average g children was scored for ApoE genotypes and two variants in the transcriptional regulatory region of the gene (Th1/E47cs and -491 AT). No evidence of(More)
Pooling DNA from subjects within a group and comparing the pooled DNA across groups for a dense map of DNA markers offers a solution to the conundrum that linkage is systematic but not powerful whereas allelic association is powerful but not systematic. We used DNA pooling to screen 66 markers on chromosome 22 in original and replication samples of children(More)
General cognitive ability (g), which is related to many aspects of brain functioning, is one of the most heritable traits in neuroscience. Similarly to other heritable quantitatively distributed traits, genetic influence on g is likely to be due to the combined action of many genes of small effect [quantitative trait loci (QTLs)], perhaps several on each(More)
In the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) item non-responses are imputed (or allocated), using a hot-deck procedure or, in some instances, are logically imputed using available information. These imputed values are then used in creating aggregate amounts, such as the value of total household income. In the SIPP, total household income is the(More)
