Type-2 fuzzy sets are used for modeling uncertainty and imprecision in a better way. These type-2 fuzzy sets were originally presented by Zadeh in 1975 and are essentially "fuzzy fuzzy" sets where the fuzzy degree of membership is a type-1 fuzzy set. The new concepts were introduced by Mendel and Liang allowing the characterization of a type-2 fuzzy set(More)
In the disease cystic fibrosis (CF), the most common mutation delF508 results in endoplasmic reticulum retention of misfolded CF gene proteins (CFTR). We show that the alpha-1,2-glucosidase inhibitor miglustat (N-butyldeoxynojirimycin, NB-DNJ) prevents delF508-CFTR/calnexin interaction and restores cAMP-activated chloride current in epithelial CF cells.(More)
Let's read! We will often find out this sentence everywhere. When still being a kid, mom used to order us to always read, so did the teacher. Some books are fully read in a week and we need the obligation to support reading. What about now? Do you still love reading? Is reading only for you who have obligation? Absolutely not! We here offer you a new book(More)
The effect of various detergents on polyphosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C activity in highly purified wheat root plasma membrane vesicles was examined. The plasma membrane-bound enzyme was solubilized in octylglucoside and purified 25-fold by hydroxylapatite and ion-exchange chromatography. The purified enzyme catalyzed the hydrolysis of(More)
Whole-cell protein electrophoretic analysis of the type strain of Streptococcus difficile (LMG 15799) revealed that this organism was indistinguishable from Streptococcus agalactiae strains. Although LMG 15799T (T = type strain) was originally described as serologically untypeable, we found that this strain was a group B streptococcus belonging to the(More)
