1. We have investigated the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in cell death induced by ischemia or application of the excitatory amino acid agonist, N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) or kainate (KA), in acutely isolated rat cerebellar granule cell neurons, studied by flow cytometry. Various fluorescent dyes were used to monitor intracellular calcium(More)
The effects of exposure of acutely dissociated rat thymocytes to various polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners were examined using flow cytometry. Non-planar, ortho-substituted congeners caused a rapid cell death at low micromolar concentrations, while coplanar, dioxin-like congeners at the same concentration were without significant effect. The most(More)
Analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC) is a first principles based method to determine absolute sedimentation coefficients and buoyant molar masses of macromolecules and their complexes, reporting on their size and shape in free solution. The purpose of this multi-laboratory study was to establish the precision and accuracy of basic data dimensions in AUC and(More)
We study the problem of approximately counting matchings in hypergraphs of bounded maximum degree and maximum size of hyperedges. With an activity parameter λ, each matching M is assigned a weight λ |M |. The counting problem is formulated as computing a partition function that gives the sum of the weights of all matchings in a hypergraph. This problem(More)
Human disease elicits a complex array of biological processes that results in long-term protective immunological memory to infectious agents. Chronic kidney disease is known to impair induction of sustained immunological memory to hepatitis B vaccine (HBVax) antigens. We asked the question: Does end-stage renal disease promote changes in subtypes of(More)
—Associating with the feasibility in configuration-issued platform model of SIS system in power station, this thesis provides a complete SVG graphic format transfer plan. The searching objective of this article is EDPF-NT+ Distributed Control System graphic document. It employs a way to parse the elements respectively. This thesis also makes an elaborate(More)
