Factor XII Deficient Mice
A genetically-transmissible factor (F) XII-inactiviated allele has been produced in mice by targeted replacement of exons 3-8 of the FXII gene with the neomycin resistance gene. Interbreeding of these mice provided offspring homozygous for two inactivated FXII alleles (FXII-/-). Male and female FXII-deficient mice bred normally in all genotypic c...

CMARK: a Matlab Toolbox for Segmentation and Tracking of Cells in Time-lapse Images
How fast does a cell move and which cells are moving together? We can help you answer those questions. Tracking the motion of cells and bacteria in time-lapse images is a fundamental step in many biological or clinical research studies. We have developed a complete toolkit for producing quantitative cell dynamics analysis. It includes automatic...

Microbiome Characterization with CZE
Microbes often grow in complex communities, called microbiomes. Communal properties such as robustness and division of labor are among the benefits to the organisms within a microbiome. Their interactions have been known to promote survival in otherwise unfavorable environments, but present obstacles to researchers across several fields. The greate...

Iris Recognition Based on Human Interpretable Features
The iris is a stable biometric trait that has been widely used in various security and identification applications. This software code develops iris features for use in forensic and law enforcement applications where positive identification requires a human-in-the-loop solution. Iris features (i.e., crypts) are extracted and presented to the user...

Non-Aqueous Electrophoretic Separation System for Bioanalysis and Pharaceutical Screening
This is a point-of-care separation system capable of in-vivo analysis of biomolecular samples. The microfluidic platform utilizes a completely non-aqueous separation solvent, enabling the label-free detection of biomarkers. Coupled with microdialysis sampling upstream, and portable mass spectrometry downstream, this device can be used to provide ...

Design, Synthesis and Evaluation of a Mechanism-Based Inhibitor for Gelatinase A
Specific interactions of cells within the extracellular matrix are critical for the normal function of organisms. The alterations are carried out in various cellular processes such as organ development, ovulation, fetus implantation in the uterus, embryogenesis, would healing and angiogenesis. Inhibition of the MMPs can be useful in the treatment...

Matrix Metalloproteinases in Wound Healing
A complication of diabetes is the inability of wounds to heal in diabetic patients. Diabetic wounds are refractory to healing due to the involvement of activated matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), which remodel the tissue resulting in apoptosis. There are no readily available methods that identify active unregulated MMPs. With the use of a novel inh...

High Performance Near Infrared Photothermal Dyes
The identified dye molecules absorb light around the 800nm wavelength and outperform other photothermal dyes. The dyes generate the same amount of heat as gold nanoparticles while maintaining excellent chemical stability. These dyes are superior candidates for photothermal imaging, photothermal therapy, tissue welding, or drug delivery applicatio...
