We present a software tool for high-level design and analysis of large-scale embedded real-time software, which has been integrated into a vehicle control platform development tool chain. The integration framework of the tool chain is based on CORBA services, and the data exchanges among different tools are carried out through an analysis interchange format(More)
PDGF and nitric oxide (NO) have been shown to participate in the progression of several forms of glomerulonephritis. A potential influence of NO on PDGF-mediated signaling cascades was therefore examined. Treatment of rat mesangial cells (MC) with the NO donors diethylenetriamine NO (DETA-NO) or spermine-NONOate resulted in a time- and dose-dependent(More)
The artificial gene D6D encoding the enzyme ∆⁶desaturase was designed and synthesized using the sequence of the same gene from the fungus Thamnidium elegans. The original start codon was replaced by the signal sequence derived from the wheat gene for high-molecular-weight glutenin subunit and the codon usage was completely changed for optimal expression in(More)
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) affect diverse physiological processes and human health. Most cereals are poor in n-3 and n-6 PUFAs. Using biolistics, barley (Hordeum vulgare L. cv. Golden Promise) was transformed with an artificial gene encoding Δ6-desaturase (D6D) under an endosperm-specific promoter. This artificial gene was designed from the(More)
Microsatellites were used as a very effective tool for genetic diversity analysis and characterization of 51 grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) accessions from the national collection of genetic resources. Genetic diversity was relatively high, 8.91 alleles were detected per analysed microsatellite locus in average, and fifty-one accessions were distinguished(More)
