Today, more than half of the world's population spend their lives in cities, and this number will jump to 70 percent by 2050. Increasing population density in urban environments demands adequate provision of services and infrastructure. This explosion in city population will present major challenges including air pollution, traffic congestion, health(More)
During the formation of dental enamel, maturation-stage ameloblasts express ion-transporting transmembrane proteins. The SLC4 family of ion-transporters regulates intra- and extracellular pH in eukaryotic cells by cotransporting HCO3 − with Na+. Mutation in SLC4A4 (coding for the sodium-bicarbonate cotransporter NBCe1) induces developmental defects in human(More)
Urban areas now account for more than half of the world's population, with the United Nations (UN) forecasting that by 2050 this number is expected to rise up to 70 percent as a result of urban growth and migration from rural areas. Increasing population density in urban environments demands adequate provision of services and infrastructure, In addition to(More)
Exposure of forming enamel to fluoride results into formation of hypomineralized enamel. We tested whether enamel hypomineralization was caused by lower expression of the NCKX4/SLC24A4 Ca2+-transporter by ameloblasts. Three commercial antibodies against NCKX4 were tested on enamel organs of wild-type and Nckx4-null mice, one of which (a mouse monoclonal)(More)
Nowadays, many people, and not only the ones with health problems are being more health conscious. With the advent of sensor based technologies, it has become possible to create wearable wireless biometric sensor networks, known as Body Sensor Networks (BSNs) which allow people to collect their health data and send it remotely for further analysis and(More)
