Increasingly, patterned cell culture environments are becoming a relevant technique to study cellular characteristics, and many researchers believe in the need for 3D environments to represent in vitro experiments which better mimic in vivo qualities. Studies in fields such as cancer research, neural engineering, cardiac physiology, and cell-matrix(More)
We extend and analyze the Wang and Politi modified Hai-Murphy model of smooth muscle cell contractions to capture uterine muscle cell response to variations in intracellular calcium concentrations. This model is used to estimate values of unknown parameters in uterine smooth muscle cell cross-bridging. Uterine motility is responsible for carrying out(More)
Alphaviruses were isolated from tracheas of turkey breeders in two North Carolina flocks experiencing a severe drop in egg production. Highlands J virus was isolated from one of the breeder flocks, in which production decreased by as much as 72.6% in selected houses over a 48-to-96-hour period. Eastern equine encephalitis virus was isolated from the second(More)
