In a wireless packet (ATM) network that supports an integrated mix of multimedia traffic, the channel access protocol needs to be designed such that mobiles share the limited communications bandwidth in an eficient manner: maximizing the utilization of the frequency spectrum and minimizing the delay experienced by mobiles. In this paper, we propose and(More)
The inheritance of resistance to sunflower downy mildew (SDM) derived from HA-R5 conferring resistance to nine races of the pathogen has been determined and the new source has been designated as Pl 13 . The F2 individuals and F3 families of the cross HA-R5 (resistant) × HA 821 (susceptible) were screened against the four predominant SDM races 300, 700, 730,(More)
Prenatal choline supplementation can protect rats against cognitive deficits induced by status epilepticus induced by the cholinergic agent pilocarpine [J. Neurosci. 20 (2000) 1]. In the present day, we have extended this novel finding by investigating the effects of pre- and postnatal choline supplementation in memory deficits associated with status(More)
The major genes controlling sunflower downy mildew resistance have been designated as Pl genes. Ten of the more than 20 Pl genes reported have been mapped. In this study, we report the molecular mapping of gene Pl 16 in a sunflower downy mildew differential line, HA-R4. It was mapped on the lower end of linkage group (LG) 1 of the sunflower reference map,(More)
Successful engineering of a small-diameter vascular graft is still a challenge despite numerous attempts for decades. The present study aimed at developing a tissue-engineered vascular graft (TEVG) using autologous outgrowth endothelial cells (OECs) and a hybrid biodegradable polymer scaffold. OECs were harvested from canine peripheral blood and(More)
