A method for microperfusion of isolated segments of the midgut epithelium of Drosophila larvae has been developed to characterize cellular transport pathways and membrane transporters. Stereological ultrastructural morphometry shows that this epithelium has unusually long tight junctions, with little or no lateral intercellular volume normally found in most(More)
We introduce a new scheme for stylus-based input of phonetic scripts such as Indic, using a compact smart soft-keyboard. Phonetically related characters are grouped into layers and become dynamically available when the "group-leader" character is accessed. This scheme allows rapid input using taps and flicks. We have developed a prototype for Devanagari(More)
Animators today have started using motion captured (mocap) sequences to drive characters. Mocap allows rapid acquisition of highly realistic animation data. Consequently animators have at their disposal an enormous amount of mocap sequences which ironically has created a new retrieval problem. Thus, while working with mocap databases, an animator often(More)
There has been virtually no software localization into any of the major languages of India. One important reason for this is the fact that enabling Indic scripts at the base software level involves sophisticated computational process that are far from the traditional font level substitutions that suffice for a number of other world languages. Indian(More)
Activation of the Gs G protein–coupled receptor Rs1 in osteoblasts increases bone mineral density by 5- to 15-fold in mice and recapitulates histologic aspects of fibrous dysplasia of the bone. However, the effects of constitutive Gs signaling on bone tissue quality are not known. The goal of this study was to determine bone tissue quality in mice resulting(More)
We describe a method to dynamically synthesize believable, variable stride, and variable foot lift motions for human walks and climbs. Our method is derived from a single motion captured walk sequence, and is guided by a simple kinematic walk model. The method allows control in the form of stride and lift parameters. It generates a range of variations while(More)

The notion of transplanting limbs to enhance a motion capture database is appealing and has been recently introduced [Sha04], [Ike04]. A key difficulty in the process is identifying believable combinations. Not all transplantations are successful; we also need to identify appropriate frames in the different clips that are “cutpasted.” In this paper, we(More)
Material and Methods: Periodontal defects were induced at four sites in eight miniature-pigs in the premolar/molar area (– 4 weeks). Autologus G-MSCs were isolated from the free gingival margin and magnetically sorted using anti-STRO-1-antibodies. Colony-formation and multilineage differentiation potential were tested. The G-MSCs were expanded and(More)
