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)
INTRODUCTION Advanced video technology is available for sleep-laboratories. However, low-cost equipment for screening in the home setting has not been identified and tested, nor has a methodology for analysis of video recordings been suggested. METHODS We investigated different combinations of hardware/software for home-videosomnography (HVS) and(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)
