New sensor, communication and software technologies are used to broaden the facilities of tracing and tracing systems for food transports. An embedded assessing unit detects from sensor data collected by a wireless network potential risks for the freight quality. The estimation of the current maturing state of agricultural products will be supported by(More)
BACKGROUND So far, human antibodies with good affinity and specificity for MUC1, a transmembrane protein overexpressed on breast cancers and ovarian carcinomas, and thus a promising target for therapy, were very difficult to generate. RESULTS A human scFv antibody was isolated from an immune library derived from breast cancer patients immunised with MUC1.(More)
Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1), a large DNA-containing virus, is endemic in all human populations investigated. After infection of mucocutaneous surfaces, HSV1 establishes a latent infection in nerve cells. Recently, it was demonstrated that HSV1 can also infect activated T lymphocytes. However, the consequences of T cell infection for viral(More)
Scenario setting The previous chapters described the application of autonomous cooperation on embedded systems, in sensor networks, transport planning and communication systems. For practical demonstration of the implications of the described studies the prototype of the intelligent container was linked to an agent system for transport coordination(More)
This paper presents a first approach towards cooperative energy management in wireless sensor networks using online battery monitoring. Using a standard platform for wireless sensor networks, a simple concept for measuring the battery voltage on the mote with little additional hardware is shown. This is used for modelling of the battery discharge behaviour(More)
In this demonstration a research prototype for autonomous local control of logistic processes in the transportation domain is presented. The aim of autonomy in logistics is to gain flexibility and robust-ness in process execution as well as increasing promptness and reducing human efforts in the coordination of a logistic process. This is enabled by(More)
The lethal toxin (LT) of Bacillus anthracis, composed of the protective antigen (PA) and the lethal factor (LF), plays an essential role in anthrax pathogenesis. PA also interacts with the edema factor (EF, 20% identity with LF) to form the edema toxin (ET), which has a lesser role in anthrax pathogenesis. The first recombinant antibody fragment directed(More)
Despite the reasonably long half-life of immunoglogulin G (IgGs), market pressure for higher patient convenience while conserving efficacy continues to drive IgG half-life improvement. IgG half-life is dependent on the neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn), which among other functions, protects IgG from catabolism. FcRn binds the Fc domain of IgG at an acidic pH(More)
