1. The rate of binding of [3H]ouabain to untreated membrane preparations of [Na+ +K+]-ATPase is a timperature--dependent process displaying a thermal transition close to 25degreesC. The apparent energies of activation which can be calculated above and below this transition are similar to, but not identical with, those previously reported for activation of(More)
In this paper, we present our work on the classical problem of prepositional phrase attachment. This forms part of an interlingua based machine translation system, in which the semantics of the source language sentences is captured in the form of Universal Networking Language (UNL) expressions. We begin with a thorough linguistic analysis of six common(More)
The early activation of Na+,K+-ATPase-mediated ion fluxes after concanavalin A (ConA) stimulation of pig lymphocytes is caused by an increase in intracellular Na+ concentration. A second mechanism of regulation of Na+,K+-ATPase activity becomes apparent between 3 and 5 h after mitogenic stimulation, but prior to onset of increase in cell volume; this(More)
In this paper we describe Agro Explorer, a language independent search engine with multilingual information access facility. Instead of searching on plain text it does the search on the meaning representation, an Interlingua form called Universal Networking Language (UNL) expressions. Most of the current search engines(e.g. Google, Altavista, Yahoo) are(More)
Acid-acetone extracts of brain (from beef and guinea pig) and chlormadinone acetate (CMA) were compared with ouabain for their ability to inhibit the electrogenic Na+,K+-pump and the Na+,K+-ATPase of neuronal tissues. The membrane potential of neurones in the paravertebral sympathetic ganglion of the bullfrog was recorded in K+-free Ringer's solution by(More)
In this report, we study the effects of lexical analysis on Marathi monolingual search over the news domain corpus (obtained through FIRE-2008). Specifically, we observe the effect of processes such as lemmatization, inclusion of suffixes in indexing and stop-words elimination on the retrieval performance. The results show that lemmatization significantly(More)

Spleens of mice treated with 9-beta-D-[2,8-3H]arabinofuranosyladenine (araA), 0.5-30.0 mg/kg showed rapid dose-dependent accumulation of 3H, which peaked at 2.5 mg/kg. Lymphocytes from spleens showed linear uptake when incubated with 0.68, 1.36, and 5.03 microM araA over 120 s. With 1.0 mM araA, uptake was reduced in rate but was not saturated. Tritiated(More)
