Progesterone (P4) was found to interfere directly with the interaction of oxytocin (OT) with its own receptor in bovine endometrium. The aim of these studies was to investigate whether other steroids have a similar effect. Endometrial slices and epithelial endometrial cells from days 14 to 18 of the estrous cycle were used. Progesterone (P4), pregnenolone(More)
Until now a lot of visual analytics predominantly delivers qualitative results—based, for example, on a continuous color map or a detailed spatial encoding. Important target applications, however, such as medical diagnosis and decision making, clearly benefit from quantitative analysis results. In this paper we propose several specific extensions to the(More)
A timing chain drive transfers motion from the engine’s crankshaft to the camshaft that operates the valves. The design process of timing chain drives involves computer simulation of many design variants in order to find an optimum. Most of the simulation results can be represented as families of function graphs (data series). Previously, the analysis of(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of progesterone (P4), its precursor (pregnenolone; P5) and metabolite (17beta-hydroksyprogesterone; 17betaOHP4) on secretory function of bovine luteal cells on days 6-10 of the estrous cycle and on intracellular Ca2+ mobilization. The luteal cells were pre-incubated for 24 h and after change of(More)
Design of experiments (DOE) is the study of how to vary control parameters to efficiently design and evaluate experiments. Main effects plot and interaction plot are two data views often used to explore differences between mean values and interactions between the DOE parameters but they are mostly limited to two parameters. We propose a new data view,(More)
