Homologous desensitization of beta-adrenergic receptors, as well as adaptation of rhodopsin, are thought to be triggered by specific phosphorylation of the receptor proteins. However, phosphorylation alone seems insufficient to inhibit receptor function, and it has been proposed that the inhibition is mediated, following receptor phosphorylation, by the(More)
Retinal S antigen chromatographically purified from whole retina, induces experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis in laboratory animals. The 48K protein, a soluble protein found in rod outer segments, is purified through its specific binding to photoexcited rhodopsin and is involved in the quenching of light-induced guanosine(More)
This work presents an immunofluorescent study of the distribution of the photoreceptor-specific S-antigen in human retinoblastoma, using mouse monoclonal antibodies. Three cases of differentiated retinoblastoma displayed S-antigen immunoreactivity with various patterns of labeling which depended on the degree of differentiation of the area studied.(More)
The introduction of Ethernet and Internet technologies in the fieldbuses of automation systems widely facilitates vertical integration. Control functions can coexist more easily with higher level functions such as supervision, production reporting or maintenance. But what does the response time of the control function become when architecture components(More)
Immunoblotting with a polyclonal antibody, directed against the mineralocorticoid receptor protein purified from rat kidney in presence of the receptor-specific ligand RU 26752, labeled a single 98-102 kDa band in soluble extracts from bovine retina and from cultured bovine retinal pigment epithelial cells, identical to the receptor in several other tissues(More)
Endothelial cells of the microvasculature (arterioles, fenestrated capillaries, and small venules) of the rabbit ciliary body have been examined in freeze-fracture replicas in ultrahigh vacuum and at very low temperatures, with special regard to their junctional boundaries. The junctional complexes of fenestrated capillaries and venular endothelium are(More)
We studied the presence of the mineralocorticoid receptor (MCR) in the eye with the aid of a number of immunochemical techniques. Immunoblotting with a polyclonal antibody, directed against the rat renal MCR, revealed a single band of about 102 kD in extracts prepared from whole bovine or rat retina similar to that observed in cytosol from the kidney and(More)
S-antigen (S-Ag)-induced experimental autoimmune uveoretinitis (EAU) in rats can be suppressed by injecting the mouse monoclonal antibody (mAb) S2D2 or a polyclonal rat anti-idiotype S2D2 (anti-Id S2D2) antibody, the internal image of the epitope of S-Ag recognized by mAb S2D2. This epitope located in amino acids 40-50 of bovine S-Ag (peptide S2), displays(More)
This paper presents a method to assess response time of automation system architectures including industrial switched Ethernet networks using client/server protocols. The method relies upon modeling the behavior of the components of these architectures in the form of hierarchical timed colored Petri nets and upon simulation of these models. A case study(More)
This paper focuses on usefulness of a plant model for model-checking of untimed properties of logic controllers. Verification results obtained on a case study by using the symbolic model-checker NuSMV and three methods: verification of the only controller, constraints-based verification, in which the plant is simply modeled as a set of physical constraints,(More)
