We demonstrate a new method for generating triggered single photons. After a laser pulse generates excitons inside a single quantum dot, electrostatic interactions between them and the resulting spectral shifts allow a single emitted photon to be isolated. Correlation measurements show a reduction of the two-photon probability to 0.12 times the value for(More)
The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is a ligand-activated basic-helix-loop-helix transcription factor that binds polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), such as 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), and mediates their toxicity. Binding of PAH to AhR in the cytoplasm triggers a poorly defined transformation step of the receptor into a nuclear transcription(More)
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a disorder characterized by an interruption in the conversion of phenylalanine to tyrosine, a reaction catalyzed by phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH). Animal models of PKU used in this study were induced by daily subcutaneous injections of pups with alpha-methylphenylalanine plus phenylalanine in utero and postnatally from day 4 to(More)
The induction of CYP1A1 expression by oltipraz, a synthetic chemo-preventive agent, which increases intracellular calcium concentration, has previously been shown to result from transcriptional activation of CYP1A1 gene mediated by the Ah receptor (AhR), although oltipraz does not bind the receptor. The present study investigated the possible mechanisms of(More)
