The radius of the pore formed by sticholysin I and II (StI, StII) in erythrocytes and sticholysin I in lipid vesicles was investigated. The rate of colloid osmotic lysis of human erythrocytes, exposed to one of the toxins in the presence of sugars of different size, was measured. The relative permeability of each sugar was derived and the pore radius(More)
1. Laying hen performance, yolk fat fatty acid concentrations and firmness of eggs were evaluated with respect to the inclusion in the diet of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and fish oil. 2. Nine diets were arranged factorially, with three levels of supplementation of CLA (1, 3 and 5 g/kg) and fish oil (0, 14 and 20 g/kg). 3. Type of diet did not affect egg(More)
1. Laying hen performance and yolk fat fatty acid (FA) concentrations were evaluated with respect to the inclusion in the diet of different sources and levels of marine fish oil (MFO). 2. Twelve diets were arranged factorially, with three sources (MFO1, MFO2_EPA, MFO3_DHA) and four levels of inclusion (15, 30, 45 and 60 g/kg) of MFO. 3. Type of diet had(More)
This paper presents a tool called MTC Flow, which allows model-driven developers to design, develop, test and deploy Model Transformation Chains (MTCs). The tool offers a graphical DSL for defining MTC workflow models independently of the technologies that support the transformations. Using basic concepts such as metamodels, models and transformations (M2M,(More)
The photocatalytic destruction of methanol, formaline (mixture of formaldehyde, methanol and water) and formaline wastes from the preservation of vertinarian physiologic samples has been attempted by two different processes, at high concentrations of reagents and by dossification of reagents, varying pH in both. Experiment evolution has been monitored by(More)
Sticholysins I and II (St I/II) are cytolysins purified from the sea anemone Stichodactyla helianthus. In this study, we show their pharmacological action on guinea-pig and snail models in native and pH-denatured conditions in order to correlate the pharmacological findings with the pore-forming activity of both isoforms. In guinea-pig erythrocytes (N = 3),(More)
This paper describes and assesses a physically based load model of residential Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) devices, for both static and dynamic loads. This load model is based on an energy balance between the indoor environment, the dwelling constructive parameters, the ETS device, and the internal mass through a discrete state-space equation system.(More)
A new system of multiple dynamic strain sensors and accelerometers embedded in test piles provides direct synchronous measurement of force and acceleration at various locations within a pile during high strain dynamic pile testing. This instrumentation system creates an opportunity to explore side and end bearing pile resistance distribution with a higher(More)
