Retrograde axonal transport of nerve growth factor (NGF) signals is critical for the survival, differentiation, and maintenance of peripheral sympathetic and sensory neurons and basal forebrain cholinergic neurons. However, the mechanisms by which the NGF signal is propagated from the axon terminal to the cell body are yet to be fully elucidated. To gain… (More)
We describe an engineered family of highly antigenic molecules based on GFP-like fluorescent proteins. These molecules contain numerous copies of peptide epitopes and simultaneously bind IgG antibodies at each location. These 'spaghetti monster' fluorescent proteins (smFPs) distributed well in neurons, notably into small dendrites, spines and axons. smFP… (More)
Synaptic connectivity and molecular composition provide a blueprint for information processing in neural circuits. Detailed structural analysis of neural circuits requires nanometer resolution, which can be obtained with serial-section electron microscopy. However, this technique remains challenging for reconstructing molecularly defined synapses. We used a… (More)
We prove an existence result for stable vector bundles with arbitrary rank on an algebraic surface, and determine the birational structure of certain moduli space of stable bundles on a rational ruled surface.
In [V-W], Vafa and Witten formulated some mathematical predictions about the Euler characteristics of instanton moduli spaces derived from the S-duality conjecture in physics (details will be given in section 3). From these mathematical predictions, a blowup formula was proposed based upon the work of Yoshioka [Yos]. Roughly speaking, the blowup formula… (More)
Enzymatic farnesylation of oncogenic forms of Ras proteins is the initial step in a series of posttranslational modifications essential for Ras activity. The modification is catalyzed by the enzyme, protein farnesyltransferase (PFTase), which transfers a farnesyl moiety from farnesyl diphosphate to the protein. We employed capillary electrophoresis (CE)… (More)
Fundamental and deep connections have been developed in recent years between the geometry of Hilbert schemes X [n] of points on a (quasi-)projective surface X and combinatorics of symmetric functions. Among distinguished classes of symmetric functions, let us mention the monomial symmetric functions, Schur polynomials, Jack polynomials (which depend on a… (More)
Using vertex algebra techniques, we determine a set of generators for the cohomology ring of the Hilbert schemes of points on an arbitrary smooth projective surface X over the field of complex numbers.
Various equivariant intersection numbers on Hilbert schemes of points on the affine plane are computed, some of which are organized into τ -functions of 2-Toda hierarchies. A correspondence between the equivariant intersection on Hilbert schemes and stationary Gromov-Witten theory is established.
We establish some remarkable properties of the cohomology rings of the Hilbert scheme X [n] of n points on a projective surface X, from which one sees to what extent these cohomology rings are (in)dependent of X and n.
