—This paper describes a hierarchical approach to spatial forest planning developed by Remsoft that can be used to create harvest blocks that meet maximum opening, green-up, and other constraints. The approach relies heavily on decisions and trade-offs made during long-term strategic analysis to simplify the blocking phase and to ensure that the harvest(More)
Major histocompatibility class I (MHC-I)-specific inhibitory receptors on natural killer (NK) cells (iNKRs) tolerize mature NK cell responses toward normal cells. NK cells generate cytolytic responses to virus-infected or malignant target cells with altered or decreased MHC-I surface expression due to the loss of tolerizing ligands. The NKG2A/CD94 iNKR(More)
Activation of primary CD4+ T cells induces the CD155, but not the CD112 ligands for the natural killer (NK) cell activation receptor (aNKR) CD226 [DNAX accessory molecule-1 (DNAM-1)]. We hypothesize that HIV productively infects activated CD4+ T cells and makes itself vulnerable to NK cell-mediated lysis when CD155 on infected T cells engages DNAM-1. The(More)
This paper describes recent advances in microscopic analysis for quantitative measurement of oil droplets. Integration of a microscope with bright-field and ultraviolet epi-fluorescence illumination (excitation wavelengths 340-380 nm; emission wavelengths 400-430 nm) fitted with a computer-controlled motorized stage, a high resolution digital camera, and(More)
Spatial harvest scheduling at the forest level is a daunting task. Apart from the sheer amount of data involved and the lingering effect of past activities, the problem is distinguished by contrasting temporal (long-versus near-term) and spatial (forest versus stand) scales and complicated by often disparate planning objectives at each level of planning.(More)
