Constraint diagrams are designed for the formal specification of software systems. However, their applications are broader than this since constraint diagrams are a logic that can be used in any formal setting. This document summarizes the main results presented in my PhD thesis, the focus of which is on a fragment of the constraint diagram language, called(More)
Although prostatic cancer is often viewed as an androgen-dependent malignancy, a number of other hormones including 1alpha, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1alpha,25(OH)2D3] are now recognized to modulate its growth and differentiated phenotype. Seven different continuous human prostatic carcinoma cell lines were examined for the presence of biologically active(More)
The LNCaP prostatic carcinoma cell line was examined for the presence of specific receptors for 1 alpha,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1 alpha,25-(OH)2D3]. Whole cell binding studies identified approximately 2500 high-affinity (Kd = 1.4 x 10(-9) binding sites per cell. Competition studies revealed that these receptors are specific for the 1 alpha,25(OH)2(More)
