Each robot can perform three modular operations: a random walk step to one of its neighbors, a pickup of a cargo strand, and the drop off of a cargo strand. The study’s design is simple and elegant. It has four(More)
Generating plants with increased yields while maintaining low production and maintenance costs is highly important since plants are the major food source for humans and animals, as well as important producers of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and fuels. Gene editing approaches, particularly the CRISPR-Cas system, are the preferred methods for improving crops,(More)
Olanzapine-induced weight gain is associated with atherosclerosis, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and diabetes. We synthesized a novel antipsychotic drug (PGW5) possessing an olanzapine moiety linked to sarcosine, a glycine transporter 1 inhibitor. In this study, we compared the metabolic effects of PGW5 and olanzapine in a female rat model of weight gain.(More)
CD44 is a cell surface adhesion molecule and its principal ligand is hyaluronic acid (HA), a key component of the brain’s extracellular matrix. CD44 levels are decreased in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of depressed individuals, and the CD44 gene has been identified in genome wide association study as a possible risk gene in suicidal behavior. In order to(More)
A major limitation in using bacteriophage-based applications is their narrow host range. Approaches for extending the host range have focused primarily on lytic phages in hosts supporting their propagation rather than approaches for extending the ability of DNA transduction into phage-restrictive hosts. To extend the host range of T7 phage for DNA(More)
Prokaryotic adaptive immune systems are composed of clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) and CRISPR-associated (Cas) proteins. These systems adapt to new threats by integrating short nucleic acids, termed spacers, into the CRISPR array. The functional motifs in the repeat and the mechanism by which a constant repeat size is(More)
