1. Mammalian phrenic nerve, in a trough filled with saline, was excited by magnetic coil (MC)-induced stimuli at defined stimulation sites, including the negative-going first spatial derivative of the induced electric field along a straight nerve, at a bend in the nerve, and at a cut nerve ending. At all such sites, the largest amplitude response for a(More)
This project presents a linear zed, three-phase, and distribution class state estimation algorithm for applications in smart distribution systems. Unbalanced three-phase cases and single-phase cases are accommodated. The estimator follows a complex variable formulation and is intended to incorporate synchronized phasor measurements into distribution state(More)
Deficiencies in the alveolar ridges cause multiple problems in achieving aesthetic and functional outcome of implant therapy and are commonly restored by using onlay graft from intraoral source. Careful assessment of the recipient as well as the donor site using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a prerequisite to ideal treatment planning. This paper(More)
The Arabidopsis thaliana KNAT7 (KNOX family) and MYB75 (MYB family) transcription factors were each shown earlier to interact in yeast two-hybrid assays, and to modulate secondary cell wall formation in inflorescence stems. We demonstrate here that their interaction also occurs in vivo, and that specific domains of each protein mediate this process. The(More)
In this paper, we present a new approach to the Direct Torque Control (DTC) problem of three-phase induction motor drives. By observing that the DTC objectives, which require the controlled variables to remain within certain bounds, are related to feasibility rather than optimality, and by using a blocking control inputs regime for the whole prediction(More)
A panel of aluminum-tolerant (AlRes) mutants was isolated by protoplast-based T-DNA activation tagging in the tobacco cultivar SR1. The mutants fell into two phenotypic classes: a minority of the mutants were fertile and developed similarly to the wild type (type I), the majority was male-sterile and grew as semi-dwarfs (type II). These traits, along with(More)
Newcastle disease (ND) is one of the most deadly diseases of poultry around the globe. The disease is endemic in Pakistan and recurrent outbreaks are being reported regularly in wild captive, rural and commercial poultry flocks. Though, efforts have been made to characterize the causative agent in some of parts of the country, the genetic nature of strains(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study is to investigate the feasibility of transdermal drug delivery of Labetalol Hydrochloride (LHCl) and to study the effect of different penetration enhancers on the skin permeability of LHCl. METHODS The permeability experiments were conducted using a horizontal glass diffusion cell with a diffusional area of 2.37(More)
OBJECTIVE A simple, precise, and stability indicating high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method was developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of propranolol hydrochloride and valsartan in pharmaceutical dosage form. MATERIALS AND METHODS The method involves the use of easily available inexpensive laboratory reagents. The(More)
Peripheral Ossifying Fibroma is one of the commonest occurring reactive lesions on gingiva. It is associated with local irritational factors and often interferes with speech, mastication and maintenance of oral hygiene, in addition to being aesthetically unpleasant. It is usually treated with surgical excision using scalpel and removal of irritational(More)
