In scientific visualization data are becoming more and more complex and implies cooperative effort for their post-processing analysis as well as high performance processing resources. Moreover experts are frequently geographically distributed and existing post-processing tools do not provide high performance capability with collaborative features. To solve(More)
To investigate spinal mechanisms of control of locomotion by the pyramidal system, we made intracellular recording from forelimb flexor motoneurons, and analyzed excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) evoked by stimulation of the medullary pyramid during forelimb fictive locomotion in immobilized, decerebrate cats. We observed that (1) pyramidal(More)
Transplant arteriosclerosis is the major factor influencing allograft survival after the first year posttransplantation. The host's immunologic response is one of the principal effectors responsible for the constitution of this vascular wall lesion, but the effector pathway and the factors influencing the immune injury are not clear. In a rat abdominal(More)
Monosaccharides were intravenously injected to eight adult heads of cattle, between 380 kg and 670 kg in live weight, to study, in the context of stress endurance, the half-life values of the sugars as well as monosaccharide effects upon concentrations of various blood components. The fructose concentration in the blood plasma went up temporarily following(More)
The response to transport stress of serum GOT, LDH, and ALD was studied in 35 heads of cattle, aged 18 months to 20 years. The influence of different factors upon serum enzyme behaviour in cattle after exposure to transport stress was tested by means of mathematico-statistical methods. The following conclusions were drawn: 1. Transport stress on cattle was(More)
Studies conducted into the activity of adenosine triphosphatase (ATPase) in homogenate of several tissues of sheep and against the background of pH 7.5 (tris-HCl buffer) have shown highest enzyme activity to develop in renal cortex and cerebral cortex followed, in declining order of quotation, by liver, myocardium, and mucous membrane of small intestine.(More)
Acid phosphatase of erythrocytes of several species was investigated, with three isozymes having been recorded from swine (three types), three (two types) from horse, four (one type) from dog, two (two types) from cat, two (three types) from duck, and two (one type) from fowl. The Michaelis constant of the enzyme varied between 3.5 and 5 X 10(-4) M for the(More)
Horses were examined for the behaviour of various blood constituents prior to and following infusions of solutions of glucose, fructose, invertose, and sorbitol. Infusion of 0.5 g/kg live weight glucose to six horses was followed by half-life variation between eleven and 23 minutes. Subsequent infusion of invertose to the same animals usually caused(More)
The activity of acid phosphatase in the testicular parenchyma of cattle was found to be higher than that in the endometrium. The acid phosphatase of either tissue broke up p-nitrophenylphosphate at a rate twice as high as that reached for di-sodium phenylphosphate. Hydrolysis of phenolphthalein diphosphate was slower and that of beta-glycerophosphate very(More)
