A novel member of the neuropoietic cytokine family has been cloned and the protein expressed and characterized. In an effort to identify novel secreted proteins, an algorithm incorporating neural network algorithms was applied to a large EST database. A full-length clone was identified that is 1710 bp in length and has a single open reading frame of 225(More)
Classical and novel protein kinase C (PKC) isozymes contain two, so-called cysteine-rich zinc finger domains that represent the binding sites for phorbol esters and the diacylglycerols. X-ray crystallographic, mutational, and modeling studies are providing detailed understanding of the interactions between the phorbol esters and individual PKC zinc fingers.(More)
We have identified and characterized a novel trophic effect of vascular endothelial cell growth factor (VEGF) on photoreceptor cells. Treatment of retinal cultures, derived from postnatal day 1 (P1) rats, with VEGF-2 resulted in a dose- and time-dependent increase in the level of rhodopsin protein, as determined by ELISA assay. After 7-9 d of treatment the(More)
This paper considers the problem of multi factory parallel machine problems. This problem is already studied in the literature and there is a mathematical model and a genetic algorithm for the problem. We analyzed the model and algorithm, and showed that they suffer from serious shortcomings. Then, we propose three mathematical models for makespan and total(More)
