Foot-based gestures have recently received attention as an alternative interaction mechanism in situations where the hands are pre-occupied or unavailable. This paper investigates suitable real-world mappings of foot gestures to invoke commands and interact with virtual workspaces. Our first study identified user preferences for mapping common mobile-device(More)
We have determined the nucleotide sequences of the coding region in the last two coding exons of ABO genes (which occupy 91% of the soluble form of A1 transferase) from 7 individuals with weak subgroup phenotypes. Four of the individuals had an A3 phenotype and 3 individuals had a B3 phenotype. We determined the nucleotide sequences based on PCR followed by(More)
Genetic selections that use proteinaceous transdominant inhibitors encoded by DNA libraries to cause mutant phenocopies may facilitate genetic analysis in traditionally nongenetic organisms. We performed a selection for random short peptides and larger protein fragments (collectively termed "perturbagens") that inhibit the yeast pheromone response pathway.(More)
Seven women in three generations of a family have been affected by Turner syndrome. Turner phenotype in this family is the result of deletion of the entire short arm of one X chromosome. The short arm deletion is transmitted by carriers of a balanced X-1 translocation. Autoradiographic findings showed that the deleted X chromosome was late labeling in those(More)

Three group O sera manifesting prozone in reverse ABO tests are reported. All were implicated in erroneous blood typing results. One sample failed to react with A1 red cells (RBCs) in immediate-spin (IS) tests, had anti-A and -B titers of 8192 and 2048, respectively, by indirect antiglobulin technique (IAT), and was from a diabetic patient; the parenteral(More)
OBJECTIVE Prenatal noninvasive determination of fetal Rh status is an important aid to the management of hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn. We performed real-time polymerase chain reaction on fetal DNA derived from maternal plasma to determine fetal Rh status. STUDY DESIGN Cell-free plasma DNA from 98 D-negative pregnant women was tested for the(More)
The type B-specific lectin from the mushroom Marasmius oreades was immobilized onto Sepharose 4B. The immobilized lectin bound murine laminin and bovine thyroglobulin, glycoproteins that contain the Galalpha1,3Galbeta1,4GlcNAc epitope. This epitope is responsible for hyperacute rejection of xenotransplants from lower mammals to humans, Old World monkeys, or(More)

Many lectins display blood group activity, and extracts from Dolichos biflorus (anti-A1), Ulex europaeus (anti-H), and Vicia graminea (anti-N) seeds provide an alternative to human sera as a source of blood-typing reagents. However, the major application of lectins in blood group serology undoubtedly lies in the recognition and elucidation of red celll(More)
The N-terminal structures of the MN and Ss erythrocyte membrane sialoglycoproteins (glycophorins A, B) from two Henshaw (He) blood-group heterozygotes were determined by manual sequencing of tryptic glycopeptides and various secondary fragments. No structural alteration of the MN glycoprotein could be detected. The He-specific portion of the Ss glycoprotein(More)
