In recent studies using a rat aortic balloon occlusion model, we have demonstrated that spinal grafting of rat or human neuronal precursors or human postmitotic hNT neurons leads to progressive amelioration of spasticity and rigidity and corresponding improvement in ambulatory function. In the present study, we characterized the optimal dosing regimen and(More)
All porcine oocytes cultured 20 hr in medium with 10 micrograms/ml cycloheximide rested in the germinal vesicle (GV) stage but with the highly condensed bivalents in nucleoplasm. When these oocytes were washed and cultured in the control medium for 2, 4, and 6 hr, germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD) was completed in 0, 86, and 100% of them, respectively. When(More)
The Rogowski coil is a current measuring element, galvanic separated from measured current. Account on structural simplicity and low price of electronic devices processing its output signal, the Rogowski coil is more used in electroenergetics. The paper deals with the design of the Rogowski coil in wider frequency range. Required parameters of the Rogowski(More)
BACKGROUND Recent results indicate a key role for cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in the regulation of oocyte meiotic arrest in preovulatory mammalian follicles. The aim of our study was to determine whether the resumption of oocyte meiosis and expansion of cumulus cells in isolated pig cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) can be blocked by a high(More)
Pig oocytes were matured in vitro in a modified M-199 medium for 44 h, subjected to electrical stimulation and scored for activation 6 h later. Sham pulsed oocytes, exposed to electroporation medium and an a.c. field, did not develop the female pronucleus any more frequently than occurs spontaneously (8.3% within 50 h of culture). However, a single d.c.(More)
In vivo, resumption of oocyte meiosis occurs in large ovarian follicles after the preovulatory surge of luteinizing hormone (LH). The LH surge leads to the activation of a broad signaling network in mural granulosa cells equipped with LH receptors. The signals generated in the mural granulosa cells are further augmented by locally produced peptides or(More)
BACKGROUND The gonadotropin-induced resumption of oocyte meiosis in preovulatory follicles is preceded by expression of epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like peptides, amphiregulin (AREG) and epiregulin (EREG), in mural granulosa and cumulus cells. Both the gonadotropins and the EGF-like peptides possess the capacity to stimulate resumption of oocyte meiosis(More)
This paper presents implementation of algorithms developed for fault classification and location detection on transmission lines with data from current & voltage sensors. Rogowski coil as current sensor is gaining importance due to its linearity and wide band width. A lumped parameter model of Rogowski coil is developed and integrated with a power system(More)
