Embryonic stem (ES) cell pluripotency is dependent upon sustained expression of the key transcriptional regulators Oct4, Nanog, and Sox2. Dissection of the regulatory networks downstream of these transcription factors has provided critical insight into the molecular mechanisms that regulate ES cell pluripotency and early differentiation. Here we describe a(More)
Rapid automatized naming (RAN) has been found to predict mathematics. However, the nature of their relationship remains unclear. Thus, the purpose of this study was twofold: (a) to examine how RAN (numeric and non-numeric) predicts a subdomain of mathematics (arithmetic fluency) and (b) to examine what processing skills may account for the RAN-arithmetic(More)
The molecular mechanisms responsible for organ-specific differences in vascular development are not well established. Animals lacking the receptor tyrosine kinase Tie1 die of hemorrhage and pulmonary edema. Furthermore, cells lacking Tie1 are excluded from blood vessels of the mature lung. These findings suggest the importance of Tie1 in the pulmonary(More)
The authors have developed a novel fabrication process for a selective micro-magnetic activated cell sorting (MACS) chip based on ferromagnetic material encapsulated micropillars (FMEMs), which is technically simple and low cost. The FMEM produces a high field gradient to magnetically attract, capture and hold cells on its interface. System test simulations(More)
This study investigates the contributions of semantic, phonological, and orthographic factors to morphological awareness of 413 Chinese-speaking students in Grades 2, 4, and 6, and its relationship with reading comprehension. Participants were orally presented with pairs of bimorphemic compounds and asked to judge whether the first morphemes of the words(More)
Prediction of protein-protein interaction (PPI) is one of the most challenging problems in biology. Although great progress has been devoted to the development of methodology for predicting PPIs and PIN using machine learning methods, the problem is still far from being solved since the application of most existing methods is limited. In this study, we(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze genomic copy number variations (CNVs) in two sisters with primary amenorrhea and hyperandrogenism. METHODS G-banding was performed for karyotype analysis. The whole genome of the two sisters were scanned and analyzed by array-based comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH). The results were confirmed with real-time quantitative(More)
