IL-2 Family Cytokines and their Receptors

During this bankruptcy, the `IL-2 kinfolk of cytokines' is outlined to incorporate IL-2, IL-4, IL-7, IL-9, IL-13, IL-15, and thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP). We outline the `immediate' IL-2 relations as IL-2, IL-4, IL-7, IL-9, and IL-15, as those 5 cytokines percentage thecommon cytokine receptor chain, c, which was once first came upon as an element of the IL-2 receptor.

Robotic Welding, Intelligence and Automation

Robot welding structures were utilized in forms of production. they could offer a number of merits in welding functions. the main renowned merits of robot welding are precision and productiveness. one other gain is that hard work expenditures should be lowered. robot welding additionally reduces danger by way of relocating the human welder/operator clear of harmful fumes and molten steel as regards to the welding arc.

Dutch Archaeology Quality Standard

Книга представляет собой нормативный документ, предложенный к принятию парламенту Нидерландов в 2005 г, в связи с необходимостью включения в национальное законодательство норм Мальтийской конвенции. Стандарты включают в себя подробное описание работы археолога, от взаимодействия с прессой, с "непрофессиональными археологами", заключения коммерческих контрактов с предпринимателями, до создания постполевых отчетов о хозяйственной и бытовой жизни экспедиции и лагеря.

As well as not requiring a compressed air supply, the microprocessor-controlled screw pump has the added advantage that it provides a measurement of volume change by counting the steps to the stepping motor. In addition, the device has a computer interface. When the loading frame has a computer interface as well, computer automation of the triaxial test is enabled as shown in Fig. 8(c). See also Menzies et al. (1977), Menzies (1988) and Menzies and Hooker (1992). The great advantage of the triaxial cell over the shear box is the control of drainage through the base pore-water ducts.

However, if these considerations do not arise, then p ˆ 0 may be obtained during drainage by connecting the pore-pressure duct to 32 CHAPTER 2 SHEAR STRENGTH Axial load Ram in rotating bushing Top cap Water-filled cell Top platen Rubber O-ring Soil specimen enclosed in rubber membrane Clear acrylic tube Saturated porous disc Base pedestal Cell pressure Saturated pore-water ducts Back pressure Valve open during drainage To pore pressure transducer (a) Captive ball nut Remote transducer Digital control circuit Pressure cylinder Stepper motor and gearbox Piston Pressure outlet ± steps Linear bearing Deaired water Pressure transducer Analogue feedback (b) Fig.

Another advantage of the triaxial test is that the applied stresses are principal stresses.
