The fetal liver kinase 1 (FLK-1)(+) hemangioblast can generate hematopoietic, endothelial, and smooth muscle cells (SMCs). ER71/ETV2, GATA2, and SCL form a core transcriptional network in hemangioblast development. Transient coexpression of these three factors during mesoderm formation stage in mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) robustly enhanced(More)
We report a case of symptomatic hypomagnesaemia in medical intensive care unit that is strongly related to proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and provide literature review. A 65-year-old male with severe gastroesophageal reflux on omeprazole 20 mg orally twice a day, who presented to the hospital with abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, and new onset seizures. On(More)
Absorption of a light particle by an opsin-pigment causes photoisomerization of its retinaldehyde chromophore. Restoration of light sensitivity to the resulting apo-opsin requires chemical re-isomerization of the photobleached chromophore. This is carried out by a multistep enzyme pathway called the visual cycle. Accumulating evidence suggests the existence(More)
This paper introduces the Stanford Mobile Inquiry-based Learning Environment (SMILE), which was designed to promote student-created questions in an engaging way in the elementary classroom using mobile phones. With SMILE, students use a mobile phone application to create questions, which are then solved and rated by peers. The entire process is controlled(More)
The need, use, benefit and potential of e-portfolios have been analysed and discussed by a substantial body of researchers in the education community. However, the development and implementation approaches of e-portfolios to date have faced with various challenges and limitations. This paper presents a new approach of an e-portfolio system design based on(More)
Photoallodynia (photophobia) occurs when normal levels of light cause pain ranging from uncomfortable to debilitating. The only current treatment for photoallodynia is light avoidance. The first step to understanding the mechanisms of photoallodynia is to develop reliable animal behavioral tests of light aversion and identify the photoreceptors required to(More)
We investigate the use of fractal analysis (FA) as the basis of a system for multiclass prediction of the progression of glaucoma. FA is applied to pseudo two-dimensional images converted from one-dimensional retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) data obtained from the eyes of normal subjects, and from subjects with progressive and non-progressive glaucoma. FA(More)
PSILAN (PocketSchool Interactive Learning Ad-hoc Network) is an interactive mobile learning framework designed for both formal and informal education scenarios with a particular consideration of under-resourced school or village settings. This paper describes how mobile innovation features of PSILAN are designed to help educators rapidly develop and easily(More)
