Genomic PCR reactions were performed to isolate gene sequences of tilapia metallothionein (tiMT) from Oreochromis mossambicus and Oreochromis aureus. Two AP1 binding sites, four metal responsive elements, and a TATA box are the major cis-acting elements identified in the 800-bp 5' flanking region of the tiMTs obtained in this study. The tiMT gene promoter(More)

In this paper, the design of a dual-band antenna for universal-serial-bus (USB) dongle applications in the 2.4-GHz wireless-local-area network (WLAN) and 3.5-GHz Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) systems is presented. The antenna consists of two folded inverted-F radiating elements. One invertedF element generates a 2.45-GHz band for(More)
11 Abstract Analytical target cascading (ATC) has emerged 12 as an integrated approach and methodology for optimal 13 design of complex hierarchical systems with good conver14 gence. It facilitates collaborative design problem solving 15 and enables distributed computing to extend both the 16 capability and capacity. ATC is very powerful yet requiring 17(More)

A product comprising a lower alkyl ester of a lower aliphatic carboxylic acid is produced by a process comprising reacting a lower alkyl ether with carbon monoxide in the presence of a catalyst comprising mordenite and/or ferrierite, optionally including an additional framework metal such as gallium, boron and/or iron, under substantially anhydrous(More)
Objective: This study investigates isolated effects of vection and optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) on visually induced motion sickness (VIMS) provoked by rotating optokinetic drum patterns. Background: VIMS was the subject of recent standardization activities (ISO IWA3, 2005) but the effects of OKN have not been studied in the absence of vection. Method:(More)
Macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF)' is one of several cytokines that control the differentiation of monocytes and macrophages. In human and murine bone marrow cultures it stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of macrophage progenitors (1, 2), and it has been shown to exert a similar effect on murine pulmonary macrophages in vitro (3).(More)
Clinical examination of the breast plays a crucial role in the management of symptomatic breast conditions. Triple assessment, with clinical assessment forming part of the process, is superior to using any one modality alone in the diagnostic work-up of a breast symptom. The techniques of clinical examination are described with reference to the common(More)
