To demonstrate a dependence of spinal cord motoneurons on the communication with their targets, the expression of immediate early gene c-fos and neurotrophin genes in the lumbar (L3-L6) spinal cord neurons was examined in Sprague-Dawley rats (male > or = 9-weeks-old) with unilateral sciatic nerve transection. Using in situ hybridization, we detected the(More)
BACKGROUND Synapsin II encodes a neuron-specific phosphoprotein that selectively binds to small synaptic vesicles in the presynaptic nerve terminal. The expressions of messenger ribonucleic acid and protein of synapsin II have been reported to be significantly reduced in the brains of schizophrenia patients. The synapsin II gene is located on 3p25, a region(More)
When several information items are presented simultaneously, the potential exists for users to interact with information in a rich and rewarding way. The MultiBrowser system supports such interaction via an information foraging style of hypermedia browsing. Multiple windows, colored bars that provide visual cues, and automatically inserted hyperlinks among(More)
We present a simple one-pot co-assembly method for the synthesis of hierarchically structured pigment particles consisting of silica inverse-opal bricks that are doped with plasmonic absorbers. We study the interplay between the plasmonic and photonic resonances and their effect on the visual appearance of macroscopic collections of photonic bricks that are(More)
LINKER was developed as an online server to assist biomedical researchers to design linker sequences for constructing functional fusion proteins. The program automatically generates a set of peptide sequences that are known to adopt extended conformations as determined by X-ray crystallography and NMR. In addition to the desired linker sequence length, the(More)
