The murine heat-stable antigen (HSA) and the p31 antigen are cell surface glycoconjugates which are transiently expressed during the development and differentiation of the hematolymphoid and neural cell lineages, respectively. We show here that monoclonal antibodies which react with these two species recognize a common antigenic determinant which is(More)
Inducible cyclooxygenase (Cox-2), also known as prostaglandin H synthase 2 (PGH-2) is a key enzyme in the formation of prostaglandins and thromboxanes. Cox-2 is the product of an immediate-early gene that is expressed in response to growth factors, tumor promoters, or cytokines. Overexpression of Cox-2 is associated with both human colon cancers and(More)
— The paper presents experimental demonstration of 6-bit digital-to-analog (DAC) and 4-bit analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) operations implemented with a hybrid circuit consisting of Pt/TiO 2-x /Pt resistive switching devices (also known as ReRAMs or memristors) and a Si operational amplifier (op-amp). In particular, a binary-weighted implementation is(More)
Suramin, a drug used in the treatment of trypanosomiasis and onchocerciasis inhibits growth-factor-induced mitogenesis. We have investigated the effect of suramin on the growth rate and the morphology of C6 glioma cells cultured in the presence of serum or in a serum-free defined medium. Exponentially growing cells were seeded in multi-dish plates (5 x(More)
We previously characterized major (IdX Ia.7) and minor (IdI) idiotopes in a collection of monoclonal alloantibodies reactive with monomorphic (i.e., Ia.7-like) determinants in the structural domain I of the murine class II I-E molecules. In this report, preliminary structural characterization of this antibody family is presented. First, the contribution of(More)
A rapid and simple high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method has been developed for the determination of p-coumaric acid in rat plasma and applied to a pharmacokinetic study in rats after administration of a prodrug, E-6-O-p-coumaroyl scandoside methyl ester, isolated from Hedyotis diffusa (Willd.). Sample preparation involved protein(More)
— We have modified a commercial NOR flash memory array to enable high-precision tuning of individual floating-gate cells for analog computing applications. The modified array area per cell in a 180 nm process is about 1.5 μm 2. While this area is approximately twice the original cell size, it is still at least an order of magnitude smaller than in(More)
Suramin, a polysulfonated naphthylurea, is currently under investigation for treatment of advanced malignancy and has been shown to exhibit antiproliferative effects on some cells. We investigated its action on two cell lines of neural origin, one with neuronal (N2A) and the other with glial (C6) phenotype, as well as on brain primary cultures. We showed(More)
A total of 288 crossbred (Duroc×Landrace×Yorkshire) growing pigs were used in two experiments to investigate the effects of adding β-mannanase to corn-soybean meal-based diets on pig performance and apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD). Both experiments lasted 28 d and were split into two phases namely 1 to 14 days (phase 1) and 15 to 28 days (phase(More)
The purpose of this work was to demonstrate the feasibility of building recurrent artificial neural networks with hybrid complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS)/memristor circuits. To do so, we modeled a Hopfield network implementing an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) with up to 8 bits of precision. Major shortcomings affecting the ADC's precision,(More)
