  7. Applications of Tol2 Transposon-Mediated Gene Transfer for Stable Integration and Conditional Expression of Electroporated Genes in Chicken Embryos (United States)

    Sato, Yuki; Takahashi, Yoshiko

    Because of the high accessibility to developing embryos, avian embryos (chicken and quail) have long been used as a good model animal to study embryogenesis in vertebrates, especially amniotes (reviewed in Wolpert, 2004). The techniques used for “classical” avian embryology included tissue transplantations, tissue ablations, and cell-labeling by vital dye. At the end of the last century, the in ovo electropora tion technique was developed by Nakamura and his colleagues, and this modern method opened a way to study the roles of developmental genes directly in living embryos (Funahashi et al., 1999) reviewed in (Nakamura et al., 2004; Yasuda et al., 2000; Yasugi and Nakamura, 2000). This powerful technique allows us to introduce genes (DNA, RNA, morpholino) into embryos in a tissue-specific way by targeting a restricted area of embryonic tissues. Thus, the electroporation technique using chickens has provided numerous novel insights into the understanding of early development in vertebrates, making the chicken a unique model animal.

The patient had experienced clumsiness and mild rigidity in the left hand, and had agraphia and mild subjective memory complaints for 3 years prior to admission in our hospital. She experienced exacerbated depression that included worsened depressive mood, lowered motivation, and suicidal ideation without precipitating stressful life events for 2 years prior to admission, and although she had continued taking the antidepressant, these symptoms were not ameliorated by increasing the dose of paroxetine. Following the development of myoclonus and pain in her left arm, we performed magnetic resonance imaging of her head, that revealed diffuse atrophy and right parietal lobe atrophy. The patient was ultimately diagnosed with corticobasal degeneration (CBD. Her left arm myoclonus and depression improved following levodopa administration. Therefore, we concluded that the recurrent depression may have been induced by CBD. Keywords: corticobasal degeneration, depression, cognitive decline

  10. Japanese culture as a paradigm in the formation of minimalism in architecture

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Vasilski Dragana


    Full Text Available Minimalism is now accepted as the definition of culture by way of reasoning, that is, as an aesthetic approach to navigating through the different fields, such as art, architecture, music, fashion design and critical discussions. It is a contemporary need for simplicity, order and purity of the individual come from history, examples of which is essential for the growing emergency needs, and which may be a way to throw a new light. In Japanese culture, architecture has the longest history. The ideal of simplicity in the Japanese architectural tradition is specific - from the Ise shrine or the heroic simplicity of architecture and rituals, as well as aesthetic ideals through the ceremony of tea and Katsura Palace Rikju to this great names on the international architectural scene: Tadao Ando, or SANAA. Japanese concept of a zen, who was in the minimum way of life always offered a sense of liberation, a chance to be in touch with the essence of being, influenced by traditional Japanese architecture in a way that not only left an indelible mark in the past, but present a new way today, not only in Japan but also abroad. Minimalism in architecture is a contemporary sensitivity that living beyond all religions, rejects superior materialism and takes the search for spirituality as a new principle of progress.

  11. Minimalism in architecture: Materials as an instrument of perception

    Vasilski Dragana


    Full Text Available Materials, as an instrument for author's report of his ideas and puts them into the space and time, is a recurring theme of architecture, from the time of Vitruvius triad (firmitas. In minimalism, materials shape space and express its essence, which is the irreducible minimum. The approach in this paper is methodologically defined by architecture domain that is art within it, therefore what the visual means are materials, with the aspiration to discover meaning in what we see. The principles of visual perception are primarily active in the field of law perceptions reached by the psychology of perception, specifically the theory called Gestalt. As the material contained in the tangible components, and sentient, such a relationship is required for duality of materialization, which is achieved by the use of their material expression of immateriality. This expression gives the truth of immateriality (natural materials, tactile value (structure and texture and the 'movement' of the material (the ability to transform. Author's access to the material as an instrument of expression immaterial, provided the concept of minimalist architecture at a higher artistic level (Peter Cumtor and causing severe emotional reaction when meeting also created architectural works (Tadao Ando. Transformations of materials are achieved through the exploration of new treatments and techniques (Kengo Kuma, and the development of technology to unimaginable limits changes the way of understanding reality (Herzog & de Meron. Researching of materials, in the way of its application, can be achieved understanding of minimalism in the architecture as an idea.

He was treated with one cycle of high-dose dexamethasone. After three cycles of bortezomib, the patient exhibited slow elevations in the free light-chain levels and developed a significant new increase of serum M protein. Bone marrow cytogenetic analysis revealed a complex karyotype characteristic of malignant plasma cells. To better understand the molecular pathogenesis of this patient, we sequenced for mutations in the entire coding regions of 409 cancer-related genes using a semiconductor-based sequencing platform. Sequencing analysis revealed eight nonsynonymous somatic mutations in addition to several copy number variants, including CCND1 and RB1. These alterations may play roles in the pathobiology of this disease. This targeted next-generation sequencing can allow for the prediction of drug resistance and facilitate improvements in the treatment of MM patients.

Participants were 31 healthy women in their 20s to 40s who met the selection criteria, including having normal monthly menstrual periods. Participants were categorized as good or poor sleepers according to their PSQI score. Median correlation coefficients of activity count and high frequency were −0.62 (range −0.43 to −0.84 for good sleepers and −0.45 (range 0.003 to −0.64 for poor sleepers. Good sleepers showed a significantly higher correlation of activity count and high frequency (Z=−2.11, P<0.05. Median correlation coefficients of activity count and low frequency/high frequency were 0.54 (range 0.29–0.73 for good sleepers and 0.41 (range 0.11–0.63 for poor sleepers. The PSQI, actigraphy data, and heart rate variability results showed positive correlations between sleep time as measured by PSQI and duration of inactivity as measured by actigraphy (r=0.446, P<0.05 and sleep time as measured by actigraphy (r=0.377, P<0.05, and a negative correlation between sleep time as measured by PSQI and the

To read and identify the characteristics of precedent were done by comparing directly the facade, shape, geometry pattern, scale, vertical and horizontal plane that affect the pattern of design. From the result: for some commercial buildings in the Makassar city were strongly influenced by the architectural precedent from the outside, the style of its localities was disappearing. For the government buildings, although is slightly influenced  by the architectural precedents from the outside, but its still keeping the local architectural style and culture of the local area as a regional identity.

Surgical remnants from ERT-treated patients did not show reduction of storage materials in chondrocytes. The impact of ERT on bone lesions in patients with MPS IVA remains limited. ERT seems to be enhanced in a mouse model of MPS IVA by a novel form of the enzyme tagged with a bone
