This paper combines a state-of-the-art method for solving the three-dimensional preconditioned Navier–Stokes equations for compressible flows with an immersed boundary approach, to provide a Cartesian-grid method for computing complex flows over a wide range of the Mach number. Moreover, a flexible local grid refinement technique is employed to achieve high(More)
We have identified an immune activation gene, denoted Act-2, by differential hybridization screening of an activated T-cell library. The gene is induced rapidly after T-cell activation with phytohemagglutinin, B-cell activation with Staphylococcus aureus Cowan I, and monocyte activation with lipopolysaccharide. We have isolated a cDNA containing the(More)
recursively updated Cholesky decomposition-based detector performs as well as [1] with a much reduced computational complexity. The novel algorithm can easily be extended to uplink CDMA system, where the channel paths between the base station and the different users are different. ACKNOWLEDGMENT The author would like to thank E. Manuel of the College of(More)
This paper combines a state-of-the-art method for solving the precondi-tioned compressible Navier–Stokes equations accurately and efficiently for a wide range of the Mach number with an immersed-boundary approach which allows to use Cartesian grids for arbitrarily complex geometries. The method is validated versus well documented test problems for a wide(More)
Macrophage inflammatory protein 1 alpha (MIP-1 alpha) is a potent stem cell inhibitor and a member of a large and expanding family of related cytokines. In an effort to understand the molecular basis of the activities of MIP-1 alpha, we have sought to characterize the cellular receptors for this molecule. Our results demonstrate the presence of abundant(More)
Act-2 is a cytokine that belongs to a superfamily of structurally related proteins. Act-2 expression is rapidly induced in T cells, B cells, and monocytes upon mitogenic stimulation. The Act-2 genomic locus is on chromosome 17q. The exons and exon/intron splice junctions have been sequenced, as have the sequences upstream of exon 1. A classical TATA box is(More)
This chapter is divided into two sections, the first dealing with a novel immune activation gene, denoted Act-2. This gene encodes a secreted protein that may represent a new cytokine. The Act-2 protein shares significant homology with proteins in two related families of small secreted proteins. Act-2 is rapidly synthesized by activated T cells, B cells and(More)
We have studied, with the KLOE detector at the DAΦNE Φ-Factory, the dynamics of the decay η → π + π − π 0 using η mesons from the decay φ → ηγ for an integrated luminosity L = 450 pb −1. From a fit to the Dalitz plot density distribution we obtain a precise measurement of the slope parameters. An alternative parametrization relates the π + π − π 0 slopes to(More)
