Edge propagating optical time domain reflectometer and using the same
An otdr system utilizes a laser source that is turned “on” and kept powered until its light reaches the end of the fiber span being measured (i.e., until the fiber span is fully illuminated). At any point in time after the fiber is fully illuminated, the laser source can be turned “off”.
A method of producing a population of differentiated cells comprising: a) inducing differentiation in a first population of cells by applying an inducer to said cells, b) harvesting microvesicles produced from first population of cells, and c) inducing differentiation in a second population of cells by applying said microvesicles or a derivative thereof to said second population of cells wherein, said first population of cells is autologous to said second population of cells and wherein the inducer applied to said first population of cells is not present in said second population of cells or is only present in trace amounts. Also related methods of producing microvesicles, methods of medical and/or cosmetic treatment and related products and uses..

Method of inducing cellular differentiation using the notch3 receptor intracellular domain
The present invention relates to the intracellular domain of notch3 that can activate signaling and initiate transcription, thereby initiating cellular differentiation in general, and neuronal differentiation in particular. The present invention includes the use of polynucleotide sequences that code, entirely or partially, for the intracellular domain of notch3, for the purpose of inducing cellular differentiation.
A role for the perlman syndrome exonuclease dis3l2 in the lin28-let-7 pathway
The 3′-5′ exonuclease, dis3l2, is responsible for the decay of uridylated pre-let-7 mirna. Biochemical reconstitution assays revealed that 3′ oligouridylation stimulates dis3l2 activity in vitro, and knockdown of dis3l2 in mouse embryonic stem cells leads to the stabilization of pre-let-7 mirna.

Methods of manipulating the fate of cells
A method of manipulating the fate of a cell, which comprises contacting the cell with at least one of (a) a cell fate-determining untranslated/noncoding rna species (cur), (b) a modified cur, or (c) a compound that modifies or affects cur, under conditions sufficient to cause a cell-changing or cell-maintaining fate that results in cell regeneration, cell differentiation or cell death, so that an increase of desirable cells or a decrease in undesirable cells can be obtained. Another aspect of the invention relates to a method of manipulating the fate of a cell by contacting the cell with a compound that affects a fate-determining mechanism involving homologous nucleic acid interactions of rna:rna or rna:dna or resolution of such interactions under conditions sufficient to cause a cell-changing or cell-maintaining fate that results in cell regeneration, cell differentiation or cell death, so that an increase of desirable cells or a decrease in undesirable cells can be obtained.

Generation of dendritic cells from monocytic dendritic precursor cells with gm-csf in the absence of additional cytokines
The present invention it was determined that dendritic cells could be derived from various sources including peripheral blood monocytes in the presence of only gm-csf without other cytokines if the monocytes were not activated. By preventing activation, such as by preventing binding of the cells to the surface of the culture vessel, the monocytes do not require the presence of additional cytokines, such as il-4 or il-13, to prevent differentiation into a non-dendritic cell lineage.

A scaffold comprising an aligned fiber. The invention further relates to a scaffold comprising one or more electrospun fibers wherein a fast fourier transform (fft) analysis result of the fibers have adjacent major peaks with about 180? apart from each other.
Catheter with omni-directional optical lesion evaluation
A catheter is adapted to ablate tissue and provide lesion qualitative information on a real time basis, having an ablation tip section with a generally omni-directional light diffusion chamber with one openings to allow light energy in the chamber to radiate the tissue and return to the chamber. The chamber is irrigated at a positive pressure differential to continuously flush the opening with fluid.
