Drosophila paired, a homolog of mammalian Pax-3, is key to the coordinated regulation of segment-polarity genes during embryogenesis. The paired gene and its homologs are unusual in encoding proteins with two DNA-binding domains, a paired domain and a homeodomain. We are using an in vivo assay to dissect the functions of the domains of this type of(More)
The even-skipped (eve) pair-rule gene plays a key role in the establishment of the anterior-posterior segmental pattern of the Drosophila embryo. The continuously changing pattern of eve expression can be resolved into two phases. Early expression consists of seven broad stripes in the blastoderm embryo, while late expression, which occurs after(More)
The Drosophila Paired (Prd) transcription factor has homeodomain (HD) and paired domain (PD) DNA-binding activities required for in vivo function. Correspondingly, Prd activation of late even-skipped (eve) expression occurs through a conserved target sequence (PTE) with HD and PD half sites, both of which are required for activation. To investigate the(More)
We report the synthesis of silicon nanowires using the supercritical-fluid-liquid-solid growth method from two silicon precursors, monophenylsilane and trisilane. The nanowires were synthesized at least on a gram scale at a pilot scale facility, and various surface modification methods were developed to optimize the electrochemical performance. The observed(More)
We present an approach to improving the performance of solution processed organic semiconductor transistors based on a dual solvent system. We here apply this to a blend containing the p-conjugated small molecule 6,13 bis(triisopropylsilylethynyl) pentacene (TIPS-pentacene) and polystyrene, which acts as an inert binder. Using a semiconductor-binder(More)
