We present an integrated approach for the enriched detection of genes subject to cis-acting variation in the mouse genome. Gene expression profiling was performed with lung tissue from a panel of recombinant congenic strains (RCS) derived from A/J and C57BL/6J inbred mouse strains. A multiple-regression model measuring the association between gene(More)
There are many cases where one needs to limit the X-ray dose, or the number of projections, or both, for high frame rate (fast) imaging. Normally, it improves temporal resolution but reduces the spatial resolution of the reconstructed data. Fortunately, the redundancy of information in the temporal domain can be employed to improve spatial resolution. In(More)
Bone augmentation implants are porous to allow cellular growth, bone formation and fixation. However, the design of the pores is currently based on simple empirical rules, such as minimum pore and interconnects sizes. We present a three-dimensional (3D) transient model of cellular growth based on the Navier-Stokes equations that simulates the body fluid(More)
Bone is the second most widely transplanted tissue after blood. Synthetic alternatives are needed that can reduce the need for transplants and regenerate bone by acting as active temporary templates for bone growth. Bioactive glasses are one of the most promising bone replacement/regeneration materials because they bond to existing bone, are degradable and(More)
The study of fluid flow through solid matter by computed tomography (CT) imaging has many applications, ranging from petroleum and aquifer engineering to biomedical, manufacturing, and environmental research. To avoid motion artifacts, current experiments are often limited to slow fluid flow dynamics. This severely limits the applicability of the technique.(More)
Measurement of serum insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) is important in assessing the growth hormone/IGF axis. Competitive immunoassay methods for IGF-I are complicated by substantial interference from IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs) due to the relatively low ratio of specific antibody to IGFBPs in the sample, even after standard acid-ethanol sample(More)
A new technique combining in situ X-ray diffraction using synchrotron radiation and infrared thermal imaging is reported. The technique enables the application, generation and measurement of significant thermal gradients, and furthermore allows the direct spatial correlation of thermal and crystallographic measurements. The design and implementation of a(More)
We evaluated the MDR1 expression levels in 77 osteosarcomas and investigated whether MDR1 mRNA expression in osteosarcomas varies with location within the tumour, following chemotherapy, or after metastasis. We modified the semiquantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay to determine accurately the levels of MDR1 mRNA(More)
OBJECTIVE In normal subjects, the major form of circulating IGF is the GH-dependent 150 kDa complex. The liver appears to be the main source of the three components of the 150 kDa complex and, in particular, hepatocytes synthesize the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) peptide and the acid-labile subunit (ALS), whereas Kupffer and sinusoidal endothelial cells(More)
