Activated human neuropeptide Y Y(1) receptors rapidly desensitize and internalize through clathrin-coated pits and recycle from early and recycling endosomes, unlike Y(2) receptors that neither internalize nor desensitize. To identify motifs implicated in Y(1) receptor desensitization and trafficking, mutants with varying C-terminal truncations or a(More)
en évidence d'une résistance au téméphos dans le complexe Shwlium damnosum [S. sanctipauli et S. soubrense] en Côte d'ivoire (Zone du programme de lutte contre l'onchocercose dans la région du Bassin de la Volta)
Oxidative stress due to abnormal production of reactive oxygen species has been implicated in the nephrotoxicity induced by gentamicin. The nephroprotective effect of aqueous-ethanolic extract of Moringa oleifera leaves (150 and 300 mg/kg) was evaluated against gentamicin-induced (80 mg/kg) renal injury in rabbits. Serum urea and creatinine levels were(More)
In today's world, where most of the critical infrastructures are based on distributed systems, security failures have become very common, even within large corporations. A system with security loopholes can be damaging for companies, both in terms of reputation and finances, while customers are reluctant to use such systems. In that respect, providing(More)
Measurement of any complex, operational system is challenging due to the continuous independent evolution of the components. Security risks introduce another dimension of dynamicity, reflected to risk management and security assurance activities. The availability of different measurements and their properties will vary during the overall system lifecycle.(More)
Systematic and practical approaches to risk-driven operational security evidence help ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of security controls in business-critical applications and services. This paper introduces an enhanced methodology to develop security effectiveness metrics that can be used in connection with correctness assurance of security(More)
Assurance is commonly considered as “something said or done to inspire confidence” (Webster dictionary). However, the level of confidence inspired from a statement or an action depends on the quality of its source. Similarly, the assurance that the deployed security mechanisms exhibit an appropriate posture depends on the quality of the verification process(More)
