This paper introduces a rigorous methodology for requirements specification of systems that react to external stimulus by evolving through different operational modes. In each mode different function-alities are provided. Starting from a classical state-machine specification, the envisaged methodology interprets each state as a different mode of operation(More)
INTRODUCTION Acute myocardial infarction is a social health problem of epidemiological relevance, with high levels of morbidity and mortality. Stress is one of the modifiable risk factors that triggers acute myocardial infarction. Stress is a result of a set of physiological reactions, which when exaggerated in intensity or duration can lead to imbalances(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the distribution of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglycerides in Brazilian adolescents, as well as the prevalence of altered levels of such parameters. METHODS Data from the Study of Cardiovascular Risks in Adolescents (ERICA) were used. This is a country-wide, school-based cross-sectional study that(More)
Osmoprimed seeds increased the abundance of pGlcT proteins. Osmopriming together with heat shock increased the abundance of RBR proteins. NAD-ME increased when osmoprimed and heat-shocked seeds were imbibed at low temperature. The purpose of seed priming is to accelerate and synchronize germination and to increase stress tolerance through the activation of(More)
Desiccation tolerance (DT) is the ability to tolerate dehydration to levels below 0.1 g(H2O) g−1(dry mass) and subsequent rehydration without lethal damage. Here, it is proposed that Leucaena leucocephala, a tree species, has potential to be model tolerant species in seed research. Using flow cytometry and transmission electron microscopy, cytological(More)
Orthodox seeds lose desiccation tolerance (DT) and change their storage behavior with advancing germination and with different hydration conditions affect the extent of DT. The objectives of this study were to describe (1) the loss of DT in Senna multijuga seeds during hydration under different conditions and (2) the storage behavior of dry seeds and(More)
