The combined expression patterns of cell cycle and apoptosis regulators have not been analyzed in details in human thymus to the best of our knowledge. Our objective was to provide multiparametric and combined immunohistological information regarding the expression levels and the topographical distribution of major cell cycle and apoptosis regulators in(More)
BACKGROUND Dendritic cells play key roles in thymic histophysiology and histopathology. Therefore, we analyzed the immunotopographical distribution of cells expressing markers of dendritic cells and macrophages in postnatal human thymus. MATERIALS AND METHODS The streptavidin-biotin peroxidise-labeled (LSAB) and the double-LSAB/alkaline(More)
The task of design, planning and operation of manufacturing networks is becoming more and more challenging for companies, as globalisation, mass customisation and the turbulent economic landscape create demand volatility, uncertainties and high complexity. In this context, this paper investigates the performance of decentralised manufacturing networks(More)
