BY RICHARD F. BASS AND XIA CHEN University of Connecticut and University of Tennessee If βt is renormalized self-intersection local time for planar Brownian motion, we characterize when Eeγβ1 is finite or infinite in terms of the best constant of a Gagliardo–Nirenberg inequality. We prove large deviation estimates for β1 and −β1. We establish lim sup and(More)
CD99 is a heavily O-glycosylated 32-kD type I transmembrane protein that is expressed on most hematopoietic cells. We show here that CD99 is expressed on endothelial cells and is concentrated at the borders between confluent cells. We found that a monoclonal antibody to CD99, hec2, selectively inhibited diapedesis of monocytes across endothelial cells by(More)
Growing on-chip wire delays are motivating architectural features that expose on-chip communication to the compiler. EDGE architectures are one example of communication-exposed microarchitectures in which the compiler forms dataflow graphs that specify how the microarchitecture maps instructions onto a distributed execution substrate. This paper describes a(More)
Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (Ngal), also known as siderocalin, forms a complex with iron-binding siderophores (Ngal:siderophore:Fe). This complex converts renal progenitors into epithelial tubules. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that Ngal:siderophore:Fe protects adult kidney epithelial cells or accelerates their recovery from damage.(More)
Leukocytes enter sites of inflammation by squeezing through the borders between endothelial cells that line postcapillary venules at that site. This rapid process, called transendothelial migration (TEM) or diapedesis, is completed within 90 s after a leukocyte arrests on the endothelial surface. In this time, the leukocyte moves in ameboid fashion across(More)
Developing organs require iron for a myriad of functions, but embryos deleted of the major adult transport proteins, transferrin or its receptor transferrin receptor1 (TfR1(-/-)), still initiate organogenesis, suggesting that non-transferrin pathways are important. To examine these pathways, we developed chimeras composed of fluorescence-tagged TfR1(-/-)(More)
Genomic sequencing has identified three different typical plant aspartic proteinases in the genome of Arabidopsis thaliana, named Pasp-A1, A2 and A3. A1 is identical to a cDNA we had previously isolated and the two others produce proteins 81 and 63% identical to that predicted protein. Sequencing of the aspartic proteinase protein purified from Arabidopsis(More)
In this work, a sandwich-format electrochemical immunosensor for simultaneous determination of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) was fabricated using biofunctional carboxyl graphene nanosheets (CGS) as immunosensing probes, which were fabricated by means of immobilization of toluidine blue (TB) and labeled anti-CEA (Ab2,1), Prussian(More)
In this paper we obtain the central limit theorems, moderate deviations and the laws of the iterated logarithm for the energy Hn = ∑ 1≤j<k≤n ωjωk1{Sj=Sk} of the polymer {S1, . . . , Sn} equipped with random electrical charges {ω1, . . . , ωn}. Our approach is based on comparison of the moments between Hn and the self-intersection local time Qn = ∑ 1≤j<k≤n(More)
