Marine algae of the genus Nannochloropsis are promising producers of biofuel precursors and nutraceuticals and are also harvested commercially for aquaculture feed. We have used quick-freeze, deep-etch electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and carbohydrate analyses to characterize the architecture of the Nannochloropsis gaditana(More)
This paper discusses a new criterion for allocation of required capital. This criterion is uniformly applicable to financial enterprises of all types. A completely natural rule for allocating capital to business units is described. This rule allocates capital in a way that is invariant over the method of decomposing the enterprise into business units.(More)
The cell cluster modeling is a widely used method to estimate the small-scale dosimetry and provides the implication for a clinic. This work evaluated the effect of different regular cluster models on the radiobiological outputs for (211)At-radioimmunotherapy. The cell activity threshold was estimated using a tumor control probability of 0.90. Basically,(More)
Aberrant mucin secretion and accumulation in the airway lumen are clinical hallmarks associated with various lung diseases such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cystic fibrosis. Mycoplasma pneumoniae, long appreciated as one of the triggers of acute exacerbations of chronic pulmonary diseases, has recently been reported to promote(More)
Some problems occur during the course of applying CAI technology in industrial design. This paper analysis the existing problems and explores the way to solve them. It is unavoidable to teach the industrial design class under the support of CAI technology. It should avoid applying the multimedia technology in wrong area and making use of the specialty of(More)
PURPOSE The organ or tumor activity is not uniform due to inhomogeneous expression/distributions of receptors/antigens and the nonuniform vascularization of the tumor tissue. However, most patient-specific three-dimensional Monte-Carlo methods for radionuclide dosimetry have dealt with quasi-homogeneous activity distributions. A voxel-by-voxel activity(More)
The Lyman–Kutcher–Burman (LKB) normal tissue complication probability (NTCP) model is often used to estimate the damage level to normal tissue. However, it does not manifestly involve the influence of radiosensitivity parameters. This work replaces the generalized mean equivalent uniform dose (gEUD) with the equivalent uniform dose (EUD) in the LKB model to(More)
