In conifers, relationship between ethylene and the response to inclination are not well understood. The aim of this work was to study the consequence for the application of 2-chloroethyl phosphonic acid (ethephon), compound able to release ethylene, in one-year-old Pinus radiata D. Don seedlings subjected to inclination. In plants exposed to inclination for(More)
PURPOSE Previous studies have demonstrated that in 129alpha3Cx46-/- mice, age-related nuclear cataract is formed. In the present study, a more in vivo-relevant model was generated to test the hypothesis that the calpain 3 gene is involved in age-related nuclear cataractogenesis in alpha3Cx46 knockout mice. METHODS To test the hypothesis that the calpain 3(More)
SUMMARY A switched-current integrated circuit, which realizes the chaotic neuron model, is presented. The circuit mainly consists of CMOS inverters that are used as transconductance amplifiers and nonlinear elements. The chip was fabricated using a 1.2 µm HP CMOS process. A single neuron cell occupies only 0.0076 mm 2 , which represents an area smaller than(More)
The heterochronic genes lin-28, let-7 and lin-41 regulate fundamental developmental transitions in animals, such as stemness versus differentiation and juvenile versus adult states. We identify a new heterochronic gene, lep-2, in Caenorhabditis elegans. Mutations in lep-2 cause a delay in the juvenile-to-adult transition, with adult males retaining pointed,(More)
