Phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PI(4,5)P2) is a minor component of the lipid bilayer but plays an important role in various cellular functions, including exocytosis and endocytosis. Recently, PI(4,5)P2 was shown to form microdomains in the plasma membrane. In this study, we investigated the relationship between the spatial organization of PI(4,5)P2(More)
Recent advances in the packaging technology of microelectronics have changed the design rules for <underline>printed wiring boards</underline> (PWB's) such that the number of wiring tracks between adjacent pins of an ordinary <underline>dual in line package</underline> (DIP) is allowed to be two or more, and the number of signal layers to be laminated is(More)
Benzodiazepines act mainly at postsynaptic gamma-aminobutyric acid type A (GABA(A)) receptors. In rat neocortical layer V pyramidal neurons, we found that midazolam (MDZ), a benzodiazepine, increases the frequency of GABAergic miniature inhibitory postsynaptic currents (mIPSCs) via insertion of alpha7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) at(More)
PURPOSE Modeling the postmortem liver for autopsy imaging is a challenging problem owing to the variation in organ deformation found in cadavers and limited availability of postmortem liver CT scans. An algorithm was developed to construct a statistical shape model (SSM) for the adult postmortem liver in autopsy imaging. METHODS First, we investigated the(More)
High density packaging is one of the most urgent requirements in the design of digital systems. In the assembly of such systems, <underline>printed wiring boards</underline> (PWB's) are used very often to provide the necessary interconnection among circuit modules. Thus, methods to raise wiring density of PWB's are continually under investigation. Given a(More)
