The susceptibility of CD46 (human membrane cofactor protein) transgenic mice to measles virus (MV) infection was investigated. Cell cultures (lung and kidney) established from transgenic and control mice showed that although both could be infected only those from the CD46+ mice gave fusion. A complete round of replication with the release of infectious(More)
We have previously shown that, in experimentally inoculated mice, canine distemper virus (CDV), a neurotropic virus, selectively infects certain brain structures (hypothalamus, hippocampus, monoaminergic nuclei, etc). Here we demonstrate that tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, interleukin (IL)-1 beta and IL-6 transcripts are selectively expressed in these(More)
Paramyxoviruses such as measles virus or canine distemper virus are etiological agents for acute and chronic encephalitis (measles inclusion body encephalitis, subacute sclerosing panencephalitis and chronic distemper encephalitis or old dog encephalitis). The mechanisms by which viral injury leads to neurological diseases have not yet been fully(More)
Experimental infection of mouse brain with a neuroadapted strain of canine distemper virus (CDV) leads to early acute encephalitis, followed by late neurological diseases such as motor pathologies (paralysis and turning behavior) or obesity syndrome. We have previously shown that, during the early stage of infection, CDV replicates transiently in selective(More)

Hydraulic servo valve controlled differential cylinders are non-linear, strongly coupled multivariable electromechanical tools applicable for driving e.g. manipulators. Traditional PID control of such equipment have to cope with the problem of instabilities due to the friction forces between the piston and the cylinder, and the uncertainties and variation(More)
In this paper the approximate dynamic model of an active car body suspension system is presented on the basis of which a fractional order active controller is designed to reduce jogging of the payload carried by the car. Besides the conventional springs of viscous damping the model includes an air spring, and a dashpot with hydraulic nonlinearities.(More)
