The steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR) is a vital mitochondrial protein that is indispensable for the synthesis of steroid hormones in the steroidogenic cells of the adrenal cortex and the gonads. Recent studies have shown that StAR enhances the conversion of the substrate for all steroid hormones, cholesterol, into pregnenolone, probably by(More)
We have previously demonstrated that steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR) is essential for the rate-limiting step in the acute regulation of steroidogenesis, which is the transport of cholesterol from the outer to the inner mitochondrial membrane. We have hypothesized that this transport occurs as the 37-kilodalton (kDa) precursor form of StAR is(More)
The potential of design to support learning has been documented for a wide range of ages. In this research we explore the added value of engaging learners in a design process, with a target audience that received little attention in the learning-by-design literature, namely, graduate students in education. Our exploration of student learning is conducted as(More)
This paper describes a course in which graduate students learn practical and theoretical aspects of educational-design. The course was enacted with 14 students in education. Outcomes illustrate tensions between students' professed beliefs about learning and their actual design practices in four dimensions that characterize the technologies they designed:(More)
