Increasing numbers of fat cells in adipose tissue are attributed to proliferation of preadipocytes or immature adipocytes in the early stages as well as adipogenic differentiation in the later stages of adipogenesis. Although both events are involved in the increase in fat cell numbers, they are contrary to each other in that the former requires cell cycle activity whereas the latter requires cell cycle withdrawal. Therefore, appropriate regulation of cell cycle inhibition is critical to adipogenesis.
To explore the important cell cycle inhibitors and study their expression in adipogenesis, a strategy was adopted that combined the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO ...

Robert Murphy's TypIC (typical cell Chooser,

now superseded by PSLID and SLIF

http://murphylab.web.cmu.edu/services/ ), was a "game changer" for me with respect to cell shape analysis. Rather than trying to compute the average of (say) a triangle and a pentagon ... which might result in a square, or a rectange, or some bizarre quadrilateral ... R.M. advocated using the median. OK, in a 2 member dataset this would result in averaging the two shapes (if use ...

One dataset is 10 millisecond exposures (very dim), acquired in Streaming acquisition mode (no hardware overhead).

The other three datasets are a three consecutive planes of the same XY field of view.

Sharone Green

We analyzed the CD4+ T-lymphocyte responses to dengue, West Nile, and yellow fever viruses 4 months after immunization of a volunteer with an experimental live-attenuated dengue virus type 1 vaccine (DEN-1 45AZ5). We examined bulk culture proliferation to noninfectious antigens, determined the precursor frequency of specific CD4+ T cells by limiting dilution, and established and analyzed CD4+ T-cell clones. Bulk culture proliferation was predominantly dengue virus type 1 specific with a lesser degree of cross-reactive responses to other dengue virus serotypes, West Nile virus, and yellow fever virus. Precursor frequency determination by limiting dilution in the presence of noninfectious dengue ...
