We investigated the effects of obstructive cholestasis in different hepatic lobes by evaluating asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) (a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor), protein methyltransferase (PRMT) and dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase (DDAH) (enzymes involved, resp., in its synthesis and degradation), the cationic transporter (CAT), and(More)
Increasing bandwidth demand drives the need for next-generation optical access (NGOA) networks that can meet future end-user service requirements. This paper gives an overview of NGOA solutions, the enabling optical access network technologies, architecture principles, and related economics and business models. NGOA requirements (including peak and(More)
The development of a new generation of photonic integrated circuits and the constant progress in integrated electronics (following Moore's law) made the realization of a new type of optical transport node possible, by basing it on the concept of a digital photonic switching layer working in coordination with the packet switching layer under the control of a(More)
We investigated the effects of hepatic ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury on asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA, a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor), protein methyltransferase (PRMT) and dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase (DDAH) (involved, resp., in ADMA synthesis and degradation), and the cationic transporter (CAT). Male Wistar rats were subjected to 30(More)
There is a broad consensus on the vision that future transport network architecture will be dominated by optical in combination with packet. This implies a complete reassignment of the functions traditionally handled by legacy intermediate layers to packet and optical layers only. Here current advances in photonics technologies and architectures enable the(More)
The telecommunication community has reached a broad consensus that the current radio access network (RAN) and underlying transport will not be able to scale up to the traffic volume and quality expected in 5G. Thus, it is necessary to remove all the technological bottlenecks and operational rigidities to ensure a painless migration from the existing radio(More)
The information related to the user actual and previous position is a very important issue for research activities on new interaction paradigms navigating physical spaces. This information is obtained from a coherent use of infrared TXs and a developed software which computes the probability that the user is located and oriented in a specific way. A number(More)
