The researchers found that MTDH-SND1 protein interaction is important for the expansion and function of prostate tumors as well as luminal and basal breast tumor initiating cells. Their work provides novel peptides that target this protein complex to help control tumor initiation, recurrence and metastasis by combating tumor initiating cells, with minimal impact on normal tissues.
A patient can be given a retinoid or retinoic acid receptor agonist such as all-trans RA (ATRA), 13-cis RA (isotretinoin) or 9-cis RA (alitretinoin). These compounds target the mechanisms that cause sleep apnea in two ways. First, they increase the respiratory drive (urge to breathe). Additionally, they reduce the apneic threshold (the level of CO2 necessary for the induction of breath) to normal levels.
Multiphoton Flow Cytometer for High Throughput Analysis of Multicellular Aggregates Like Pancreatic Islets
The multiphoton laser can excite intrinsic cellular fluorophores such as NADH, FAD and collagen, allowing both spectral and lifetime data to be acquired. This information then can be used to reveal information on cellular processes like metabolism, viability and the functional potential of cells, pancreatic islets, embryoid bodies and other entities.
The heart of the generator is a reaction chamber holding a small cartridge of purified carbon. The CO is produced by heating the carbon in the presence of air that is fed continuously into the reaction chamber. The carbon can be heated by any controllable energy source, such as an electrical filament or laser.
The amount of CO in the output stream is monitored by a sensor. Using feedback on both the gas flow rate and the heat source, the amount of CO generated is controlled to match the prescribed, adjustable value.
The method provides for joint scaling of both the number of cores in operation as well as the amount of resources per core. Selecting the number of cores and the amount of resources is done by examining the degree of ILP and TLP available for a given application. As such, performance counters (and other characteristics) implemented by a processor are used to determine optimal core/resource configurations.
Performance counters may measure, for example, how many instructions are executed per cycle, length of execution time and cache hit rate. These performance measurements indicate how much ILP and TLP a given application exhibits at a time.
