In efforts to determine the primary structure of intermediate filament proteins in the goldfish visual pathway, we isolated clones from a retinal lambda gt11 cDNA expression library that represent goldfish vimentin. We show that there are at least two forms of goldfish vimentin, designated as vimentin alpha and vimentin beta. RNase protection assays(More)
The predominant intermediate filament proteins of the goldfish visual pathway consist of neuronal and non-neuronal isoelectric variants (58 kd). We have isolated a cDNA clone for the glial intermediate filament protein (ON3) from an optic nerve expression library. The predicted amino acid sequence of this clone reveals that it codes for a type II keratin(More)
The intermediate filament protein composition in glial cells of goldfish optic nerve differs from that found in glial cells of the goldfish spinal cord and brain. Brain and spinal cord glial cells contain glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), whereas glial cells in the optic nerve contain ON3. The ON3 protein of the goldfish optic nerve was recently(More)
Biological tissues are ensembles of linear and nonlinear, symmetric and asymmetric constituents. As far as their electromagnetic characterization is concerned, they can be modeled as microscopic mixtures of the corresponding material media. Any medium volume can be properly discretized in a finite number of cells which can be modeled as an equivalent three(More)
A new method for unmixing radar polarimetric images with optical images is proposed. It was found that the polarimetric covariance matrix can be unmixed considering a linear model. As a result, this model is used to produce unmixed covariance matrices based on land cover types. We hope to prove that this unmixing of the polarimetric information produce(More)

We present a study of the oxygen abundance relative to hydrogen in the equatorial streamer belt of the solar corona during the recent period of activity minimum. The oxygen abundance is derived from the spectroscopic observations of the outer corona performed during 1996 with the Ultraviolet Coronagraph Spectrometer (SOHO) in the ultraviolet region. This(More)
