Among leukocytes, only monocytes and macrophages were found to be highly susceptible to an infection by influenza A virus. After infection, de novo viral protein synthesis was initiated but then interrupted after 4-6 h. Most macrophages died by apoptosis within 25-30 h. Before cell death, however, macrophages responded to influenza A virus with a high(More)
Sleep deprivation (SD) has enriched our treatment programme for major depression. SD has been demonstrated to modify different host defence activities. There is some evidence that there are reciprocal relationships between immune function and increased hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPA) axis activity in depression. We therefore investigated the(More)
The effect of daily repeated 10 min immobilization on the serotoninergic neurotransmission and serum corticosterone levels was studied. Male Lewis rats were immobilized for a 10 min period daily once or on 5 consecutive days. Serotoninergic neurotransmission was followed using differential in vivo pulse voltammetry with carbon fibre electrodes measuring(More)

If subtransactions commute, the validity of con BLOCKINicts is reduced to the lifetime of subtransactions, i.e. to the execution of a single operation. Both advantages together signicantly increase the potential degree of concurrency on all levels of abstraction. The reduced con BLOCKINict rate makes the model applicable even for applications that require(More)
In prior research on the future of aviation it was established that operators will have to work with highly automated systems. Increasing automation will require operators monitoring appropriately (OMA). OMA are expected to demonstrate the use of distinctly different monitoring phases (orientation, anticipation, detection, and recheck). Within these phases,(More)

Partial oxidation of a carbonaceous material (natural gas, coal, biomass among others) is widely used for producing gas for power generation or as feedstock in the chemical industry. In partial oxidation processes two significant reactions regimes can be observed. In the flame zone, the fast oxidation reactions are mainly governed by the mixing of the fuel(More)
The effect of immobilization and light-dark cycle on the serotoninergic system of the n. raphe dorsalis and on the distribution of blood lymphocyte subpopulations was studied in the rat. As was shown by in vivo voltammetry, 10 min immobilization enhanced serotonin metabolism with a maximum 15 min after immobilization. The distribution of the blood(More)
