Co-overexpression of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor (EGFR) and c-Src frequently occurs in human tumors and is linked to enhanced tumor growth. In experimental systems this synergistic growth requires EGF-dependent association of c-Src with the EGFR and phosphorylation of Tyr-845 of the receptor by c-Src. A search for signaling mediators of(More)
The experimental observation of the actual thermo-mechanical weak points in microelectronics packages remains a big challenge. Recently, a stress sensing system has been developed by the publicly funded project that allows measuring the magnitudes and the distribution of the stresses induced in the silicon dies by thermo-mechanical loads. The paper reports(More)
In ionic crystals of the form M(+)X(-), certain covalently bonded anion groups X(-) are particularly associated with instability. The heavier metal cations M(+) enhance this. Very sensitive explosives occur within the extended azide family, where X(-) = CNO(-), N(3)(-), NCO(-), or NCS(-) (an isoelectronic set of unsaturated linear triatomic anions). Another(More)
A set S V is a dominating set of a graph G = (V; E) if each vertex in V is either in S or is adjacent to a vertex in S. A vertex is said to dominate itself and all its neighbors. The domination number (G) is the minimum cardinality of a dominating set of G. A set S V is an independent set of vertices if no two vertices in S are adjacent. The independence(More)
