Continuous normobaric hypoxia (CNH) renders the heart more tolerant to acute ischemia/reperfusion injury. Protein kinase C (PKC) is an important component of the protective signaling pathway, but the contribution of individual PKC isoforms under different hypoxic conditions is poorly understood. The aim of this study was to analyze the expression of PKCε(More)
Previous studies from our laboratory have indicated that secondary hyperaldosteronism affects phospholipids of rat colonic enterocytes. To assess whether this represents a direct effect of mineralocorticoids on enterocytes, the role of aldosterone and dexamethasone in the regulation of lipid metabolism was examined in Caco-2 cells during development of(More)
Chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH) is associated with increased production of reactive oxygen species that contributes to the adaptive mechanism underlying the improved myocardial ischemic tolerance. The aim was to find out whether the antioxidative enzyme manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) can play a role in CIH-induced cardioprotection. Adult male(More)
Previous studies have shown that aldosterone treatment of amphibian epithelial cells results not only in stimulation of Na(+) absorption but also in changes in phospholipid composition which are necessary for the mineralocorticoid action of aldosterone. The present study was designed to investigate the effect of aldosterone on phospholipids of mammalian(More)
In many respects Web 2.0 and Knowledge Management (KM) are strongly related to each other. From a KM perspective the Web 2.0 evolution can serve as a pool of ideas for new ways of knowledge sharing, knowledge organisation and for the development of new architectures of measurable knowledge management systems. KM projects are usually developed in a(More)
In this paper we propose an approach to a general test presentation that covers the situations with multiple test outcomes, noiseless tests and unreliable (noisy) tests as the input data for the solutions of the test sequencing problem. Symptomatic information and modular diagnosis are also easily included within the same frame. An example is given to(More)
This paper is an overview of the activities performed in the framework of the European IST project EuNICE-Test (European Network for Initial and Continuing Education in VLSI/SOC Testing) using remote automatic test equipment (ATE)), addressing the shortage of skills in the microelectronics industry in the field of electronic testing. The project was based(More)
This paper deals with the sequential diagnosis approach and the associated test sequencing problem (i.e. the problem of generating the sequence of tests required to reach a diagnostic conclusion at minimum cost). The traditional test sequencing problem is generalized here to include asymmetrical and multi-valued tests. We present the sequential diagnosis(More)
