This article examines the role of the “differently-abled” researcher in facilitating inclusive research with adults (age 16 and older) with intellectual disabilities living in Sami areas of Norway. Topics discussed include challenges that may arise while conducting such research due to the nature of the project (externally-funded pre-existing project), methods applied (quantitative) and people involved (some being of Sami background and some with intellectual disabilities). In this study, for example, the research sponsors had pre-determined both the topic of investigation (i.e. living conditions) and the metho...

In this study, we use ChIP-Seq to identify Dppa4 binding genome-wide in three distinct cell types: mouse embryonic stem cells (mESC), embryonal carcinoma cells, and 3T3 fibroblasts ectopically expressing Dppa4. We find a core set of Dppa4 binding sites shared across cell types, and also a substantial number of sites unique to each cell type. Across cell types Dppa4 shows a preference for binding to regions with active chromatin signatures, and can influence chromatin modifications at target genes. In 3T3 fibroblasts with enforced Dppa4 expression, Dppa4 represses the cell cycle inhibitor Cdkn2c and activates Ets family tra...

MorsheadAbstractMany cell types respond to electric fields (EFs) through cell migration, a process termed galvanotaxis. The galvanotactic response is critical for development and wound healing. Here we investigated whether skin-derived precursor cells (SKPs), which have the potential to differentiate into mesodermal and peripheral neural cell types, undergo directed migration in the presence of an EF. We found that EF application promotes SKP migration towards the anode. The migratory response ...

VigneswaranAbstractThis paper presents, an elliptical core photonic crystal fiber which promises to yield very large birefringence4.1×10−2. The optical and nonlinear properties of the fiber is also investigated theoretically. The supercontinuum generation at the pumping wavelength 1064 nm with FWHM 50 fs pulse by using very low peak power of 1 kW in both vertical and horizontal polarized mode is investigated. Primly, the influence of stimulated Raman scattering on soliton s...

MishinAbstractA heavily rolled AA1050 sample with a microstructurally continuous sandwich structure, characterized by distinct microstructural evolution in the center and subsurface layers, has been annealed at different temperatures for 2 h with the objective of establishing optimized combinations of strength and ductility. It is observed that a large reduction in the fraction of high angle boundaries taking place during recovery in the subsurface layers results in delayed onset of recrystallization compa...

The results showed that the stress corrosion cracking susceptibility of annealed and normalized alloys increased with the decrease of the strain rate as the metal became more severely corroded and dissolved a...
