There was a flush of mineralization in fallow wheat plots in the wet and warm summer of 1982 at Akron, Colorado. Peak mineralization rates and concentrations of N and P coincided with a 2.5-fold increase in protozoan biomass. No-till contained considerably more activity than stubble mulch plots, especially in the surface 2.5 cm and there was more water(More)
Plasminogen activator inhibitor 2 (PAI-2) plays an essential role in the regulation of localized extracellular proteolysis by its inactivation of urokinase. Using probes derived from a cDNA we isolated from lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated human peripheral blood monocytes, we have mapped, isolated, and determined the molecular organization of the gene(More)
Under the assumption that one of two given models is the real underlying model of the system, a valid auxiliary signal is defined as an input signal that allows the selection of the correct model. Under the assumption that the noise energy is bounded, the separability index is defined as the energy of the proper auxiliary signal of least energy. A(More)
Studies of reproductive physiology involve rapid sampling protocols that result in time series of hormone concentrations. The signature pattern in these times series is pulses of hormone release. Various statistical models for quantifying the pulsatile release features exist. Currently these models are fitted separately to each individual and the resulting(More)
Many endocrine systems are regulated by pulsatile hormones - hormones that are secreted intermittently in boluses rather than continuously over time. To study pulsatile secretion, blood is drawn every few minutes for an extended period. The result is a time series of hormone concentrations for each individual. The goal is to estimate pulsatile hormone(More)
