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)
An acute increase in tubular fluid flow rate in the microperfused cortical collecting duct (CCD), associated with a approximately 20% increase in tubular diameter, leads to an increase in intracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i)in both principal and intercalated cells (Woda CB, Leite M Jr, Rohatgi R, and Satlin LM. Am J Physiol Renal Physiol 283:(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)
OBJECTIVE Thoracic and lumbar pedicle screws have become popular because of their biomechanical superiority over other methods of spinal fixation. However, the safety and efficacy of transpedicular screws depend on their proper placement. Recent advances in imaging have resulted in the ability to acquire three-dimensional (3-D) axial images of the spine(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)
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)
In this paper, we investigate two novel techniques based on Cellular Simultaneous Recurrent Network (CSRN) that can address the problem of small in-plane image rotation and large out-of-plane pose invariant face recognition in image sequences. In our first technique, for the first time in literature, we investigated the CSRNs for static image registration(More)
