The shortage of strong endosperm-specific expression promoters for driving the expression of recombinant protein genes in cereal endosperm is a major limitation in obtaining the required level and pattern of expression. Six promoters of seed storage glutelin genes (GluA-1, GluA-2, GluA-3, GluB-3, GluB-5, and GluC) were isolated from rice (Oryza sativa L.)(More)
The ability of antigen receptors to engage self-ligands with varying affinity is crucial for lymphocyte development. To further explore this concept, we generated transgenic mice expressing GFP from the immediate early gene Nr4a1 (Nur77) locus. GFP was up-regulated in lymphocytes by antigen receptor stimulation but not by inflammatory stimuli. In T cells,(More)
Granule cell migration influences the laminar structure of the cerebellum and thereby affects cerebellum function. Bergmann glia are derived from radial glial cells and aid in granule cell radial migration by providing a scaffold for migration and by mediating interactions between Bergmann glia and granule cells. In this review, we summarize Bergmann glia(More)
This paper proposes a color watermarking scheme based on block-SVD and Arnold transformation. Color watermark means more meaningful information could be concealed in host image. Block-SVD has faster speed than SVD algorithm. We can adjust the block size according to the amount of the watermark to be embedded. Watermark's pixel is buried to the maximum(More)
Lymphomas arise containing abnormalities of various differentiation stage-specific molecules. In the study reported here, we have shown abnormal up-regulation of germinal center B cell-associated GANP in various human lymphomas including mantle cell, diffuse large B cell, and Hodgkin lymphoma, by immunohistochemical analysis. To study the role of GANP in(More)
Liver X receptor α (LXRα) and β (LXRβ) are members of the nuclear receptor superfamily of ligand-activated transcription factors, and expressed in the CNS. We have previously demonstrated that LXRβ is essential for migration of later-born neurons during cerebral cortex development, although the underlying mechanism is not clear. The cerebellum is organized(More)
Dysfunction of brain-derived arginine-vasopressin (AVP) systems may be involved in the etiology of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Certain regions such as the hypothalamus, amygdala, and hippocampus are known to contain either AVP neurons or terminals and may play an important role in regulating complex social behaviors. The present study was designed to(More)
