The anion exchange system of human red blood cells is highly inhibited and specifically labeled by isothiocyano derivatives of benzene sulfonate (BS) or stilbene disulfonate (DS). To learn about the site of action of these irreversibly binding probes we studied the mechanism of inhibition of anion exchange by the reversibly binding analogs p-nitrobenzene(More)
Lewis lung carcinoma cells from tumors, metastasis nodules, or from culture bind fluorescent derivatives of neoglycoproteins containing alpha-D-glucose residues: This binding is competitively inhibited by neoglycoproteins containing alpha-D-glucose, by mannan, and by several other neoglycoproteins. Cell binding and uptake of the fluorescent derivatives of(More)
It is well known that a compression trade-off exists between the spatial and temporal video quality. Various temporal scalability techniques have been considered for lowering the encoded frame rate such that the freed bit rate can be used to increase the PSNR quality of the remaining frames. Temporal scalability in the SVC extension of the MPEG4/AVC codec(More)
The present study is concerned with the chemical factors that determine the inhibitory properties of reversible aromatic sulfonic acids on sulfate exchange system of human red blood cells. Two series of compounds were tested for inhibitory potencies: benzene sulfonic acid (BS) and 2,2'-disulfonic stilbene (DS) derivatives, each series with substituent(More)
With Asymmetric Multiple Description Coding we address the transmission case where there is a plethora of communication paths between sender and receiver, all with a different bandwidth and different levels of reliability (in terms of packet loss rate). For this scenario we have several possibilities for coding and transmission at our disposal, namely(More)
Studies were carried out to test whether tolerance to alloantigens and to heterologous proteins could be induced in (NZB X NZW)F1 (B/W) female mice, compared with females of various other mouse strains, including BALB/c, C3H/eb, C57Bl/Ka and (BALB/c X C57Bl/6)F1. Untreated BALB/c and B/W mice were resistant to tolerance induction by deaggregated BSA, while(More)
The effect of administration of cyclophosphamide (Cy) on the susceptibility of mice to tolerance induction and its influence on the rate of induced T suppressor cells in antigen-specific and nonspecific systems was assessed using mice that had undergone total lymphoid irradiation (TLI). Tolerance to bovine serum albumin (BSA) was induced in adult mice(More)
