Recent studies have shown that in addition to their traditionally recognized functions as building blocks, energy stores, or hazardous intermediates, lipids also have the ability to act as signaling molecules with potent effects on systemic metabolism and metabolic diseases. This Perspective highlights this somewhat less apparent biology of lipids,(More)
This paper addresses the Hybrid Flow Shop (HFS) scheduling problems to minimize the makespan value. In recent years, much attention is given to heuristic and search techniques. Genetic algorithms (GAs) are also known as efficient heuristic and search techniques. This paper proposes an efficient genetic algorithm for hybrid flow shop scheduling problems. The(More)
The family of IL-10-related cytokines includes several human members, IL-19, IL-20, IL-22, IL-24 and IL-26, and a series of herpesviral and poxviral paralogs. Some of these cytokines share common receptor subunits. In this study, we investigated the effects of these cytokines on naive T cell differentiation, antigen-specific T cell suppression, survival ad(More)
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) plays a critical role in protein, lipid, and glucose metabolism as well as cellular calcium signaling and homeostasis. Perturbation of ER function and chronic ER stress are associated with many pathologies ranging from diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases to cancer and inflammation. Although ER targeting shows therapeutic(More)
The plasticity of adipose tissue requires highly regulated changes in accompanying blood vessels. In obesity, adipose tissue angiogenesis plays a complex role to support tissue growth and promote metabolic disease. Emerging research (Sung et al., 2013) indicates that exploiting the mediators of adipose tissue angiogenesis may offer the possibility for(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t Although it is essential for investors who want to comply with their religious obligations, cross-sectoral interaction in Islamic equity markets is an untouched subject in finance literature. Accordingly, this paper aims to investigate the interactions between the ten major sectors of Islamic equity markets by(More)
In this paper a new artificial immune system (AIS) algorithm is proposed to solve multi objective fuzzy flow shop scheduling problems. A new mutation operator is also described for this AIS. Fuzzy sets are used to model processing times and due dates. The objectives are to minimize the average tardiness and the number of tardy jobs. The developed new AIS(More)
