Steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR) delivers cholesterol to the inner mitochondrial membrane, where the cholesterol side-chain cleavage enzyme carries out the first committed step in steroid hormone biosynthesis. StAR expression is restricted to steroidogenic cells and is rapidly induced by treatment with trophic hormones or cAMP. We analyzed the(More)
This paper proposes a method for the rapid prototyping (RP) of self-similar objects. RP technology makes available the physical generation of a solid object. However, the contemporary design capability of a computer-aided design (CAD) system can atmost use the non-uniform rational B-spline (NURBS) modelling method. When the design has a very complicated(More)
The paper proposes a method for rapid prototyping (RP) fractal geometry represented objects. RP technology has made possible the physical fabrication of solid freeform objects. However, contemporary CAD/CAM/RP systems are developed for Euclidean geometry and are incapable of handling self-similar fractal objects (e.g. jewelry products). To address the(More)
Object detection is an important feature of computer science. The benefits of object detection is however not limited to someone with a doctorate of informatics. Instead, object detection is growing deeper and deeper into the common parts of the information society, lending a helping hand wherever needed. This paper will address one such possibility, namely(More)
