Having the advantage of being very simple in concept, easy to implement and computationally efficient, particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is a powerful evolutionary computation tool for automated design of integrated circuits. Since circuit design deals with highly complicated nonlinear equations, obtaining optimal solution of these equations due(More)
Incubation of synaptosomes together with 1-acyl-2-[14C]arachidonoyl-sn-glycerophosphoinositols (GPI) and sodium deoxycholate yielded diacylglycerols and free arachidonic acid. Diacylglycerol formation is attributed to hydrolysis by the diacyl-GPI-specific phospholipase C (EC 3.1.4.10), and this reaction requires sodium deoxycholate for optimal activity. The(More)
Culture-grown astrocytes derived from 3-day-old rat brain were incubated in the presence of [3H]guanosine and of the convulsant agent L-methionine-dl-sulfoximine (MSO). The resulting [3H]tRNA was purified from control and MSO-exposed cells at several time points during the incubation and was hydrolyzed to [3H]guanine and four [3H]methyl guanines which were(More)
The biosynthesis of tRNA was investigated in cultured astroglial cells and the 3-day-old rat brain in vivo. In the culture system astrocytes were grown for 19 days and were then exposed to [3H]guanosine for 1.5-7.5 h; 3-day-old rats were injected with [3H]guanosine and were killed 5-45 min later. [3H]tRNA was extracted, partially purified, and hydrolyzed to(More)
