While a number of domain modeling methods have hecn developed. there are few methods available that couple together domain modeling and domain architecture engineering. This paper describes the DAGAR (Domain Architecture-based Generation for Ada Reuse) process. a domain architecture engineering method that support~ the Organization Domain Modeling rODM)… (More)
Cross-talk between the phospholipase C and adenylyl cyclase signalling pathways was investigated in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells transfected with the V1a and V2 vasopressin receptors. Cell lines expressing V1a, V2, or both V1a and V2 receptors, were established and characterized. Stimulation of V2 receptors by vasopressin induced a dose-dependent… (More)
Exp3ici4 formal definitions of sofhwue processes are needed for process understanding, communication, analysis, execution guidance, and improvement support. We conducted a case study which involved the creation of formal process defmitiona using Abstraction Hierarchy Diagrams, IDEFO, MW-L, and APPL/A. This paper describes the study, pr-esentsthe lessons… (More)
The activity of the renin-angiotensin system as well as the ability of the kidney to retain sodium following salt restriction are reduced with age. The relationship between these age-related changes in renal function and the renin gene expression was presently investigated. The concentrations of renin and its mRNA were measured in kidney of 10- and… (More)
We have formulated an integrated set of concepts, processes, methods and tools, called ReuseWorks, which supports the product line approach to software development. ReuseWorks is generic and tailorable and has been validated through usage on the Army STARS Demonstration Project.
