We have purified to homogeneity from the myofibrillar fraction of pig bladder a mammalian heterotrimeric form of PP-1, SMPP-1M. Purified pig bladder SMPP-1M is similar in composition and substrate specificity to avian gizzard PP-1M reported by Alessi et al. (Alessi, D., Macdougall, L. K., Sola, M. M., Ikebe, M., and Cohen, P. (1992) Eur. J. Biochem. 210,(More)
Treatment of adipocytes with insulin or phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) results in transient activation of mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (MEK) (Tmax = 90 s) and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) (Tmax = 300 s). We have identified a novel insulin-stimulated MEK kinase (I-MEKK) in the 100,000 x g infranatant that shows rapid phasic(More)
Peripheral neuroblastic tumors (PNTs) share a common origin in the sympathetic nervous system, but manifest variable differentiation and growth potential. Malignant neuroblastoma (NB) and benign ganglioneuroma (GN) stand at opposite ends of the clinical spectrum. We hypothesize that a common PNT progenitor is driven to variable differentiation by specific(More)
This paper focuses on makespan minimization for the flow line scheduling problem using a Fuzzy Cell Genetic Algorithm (FCGA). Real world applications of this problem are commonly found in printing and electronic circuit board manufacturing industries. A generalized integer programming (IP) model for this problem is proposed. The Fuzzy Cell Genetic Algorithm(More)
Although a significant amount of research has focused on the use of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) for solving the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP), there is considerably less attention on the application of ANNs to the Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP). This paper proposes an updated Self Organizing Map approach to solving the Capacitated Vehicle Routing(More)
