BACKGROUND The genetic contribution to stroke is well established but it has proven difficult to identify the genes and the disease-associated alleles mediating this effect, possibly because only nuclear genes have been intensely investigated so far. Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) has been implicated in several disorders having stroke as one of its clinical(More)
Most of research studies neglects the presence of thermal cracking reactions in the simulation of industrial FCC risers. The present work proposes 11-lump kinetic model which modified the 10-lumps kinetic model given by Jacob el al. (1976), by the addition of a new lump named dry gas representing the products of the thermal cracking reactions. Similarly as(More)
