3.5 Monomeric G proteins

We shall discuss monomeric G proteins (also called small G proteins or small GTPases) separately from the trimeric G proteins for three reasons: their upstream activators are different, they tend to have different target proteins, and they commonly operate within different signalling pathways.

1.5.1 The co-production of meaning

The third sense in which discourse is a social action refers to the origins of meanings. Meaning emerges from complex social and historical processes. It is conventional and normative. We have some idea what it signifies to say Prince Charles is a proud man because we are members of a speaking community and culture which has agreed associations for ‘proud man’. We draw on those to make sense. Meaning is also relational. Proud signifies as it does because of the existence of other t

Microencapsulation for therapeutic applications
Microencapsulation has proved to be a powerful technique in the field of drug delivery. A great deal of research is directed towards studying the use of various microencapsulation systems for that purpose. This study investigates the use of microencapsulation in alginate for protein delivery and delivery of gene therapy products for the treatment of spinal cord injury. Liposomes were encapsulated in alginate to form a drug delivery system which allows for multiple control points for drug release

Lincoln-Douglas Debate of 1858
This video is accompanied by text. "The Dred Scott case played a pivotal role in the 1858 Illinois senate race and in the 1860 presidential election. Eyeing Stephen Douglas’s seat in the Senate, Abraham Lincoln challenged the incumbent to a series of debates. The two politicians differed in almost every respect. Lincoln, a tall and lanky Republican with a high-pitched voice, relied on his wit and integrity to provide a comforting sense of sincerity. Douglas, meanwhile, was a short, barrel-ches

Hurricanes: New Tools for Predicting
Hurricane Katrina, which struck New Orleans and other Gulf Coast communities on August 29, 2005, provided the worst kind of reminder of the importance of accurate hurricane prediction — and of heeding those predictions. This video segment adapted from NOVA scienceNOW a year before Katrina struck, describes the current state of research into what causes hurricanes and how scientists are now able to "see" inside the storms in their ongoing efforts to more accurately predict both the path and int

7 The pros and cons, and future of geothermal energy

Geothermal energy is renewable but the fluids emit gases such as CO2, H2S, SO2, H2, CH4 and N2 when used for electricity generation. However, geothermal power plants are usually sited in areas of natural geothermal activity, where such emissions occur anyway. Other potential pollutants are various ions dissolved in the geothermal fluids, but these are almost always returned to the reservoir when the spent fluids are re-injected

The major goal of this research was to discover those behaviors associated with the process of online bibliographic searching that are correlated with success. In the assumption that more experienced searchers are more successful, the major research objectives were to identify (1) the differences among the searches of users of online systems who have different amounts of overall experience and (2) the differences between the searches of persons with and without experience on the data base being

4.2 A resting heart rate

We can understand the role of the athlete's heart in sport a little more clearly by looking at typical heart rates for trained athletes compared with heart rates for non-athletes. A commonly used measure of heart efficiency is called the resting heart rate. This is the number of times per minute that the heart beats when a person is relaxed and resting. The heart rate for a reasonably healthy adult when they are relaxed and resting is in the range of 55–65 beats per minute. This means that

TALAT Lecture 1601: Process modelling applied to age hardening aluminium alloys
This lecture describes the methodology for physical modelling of materials problems, with particular emphasis on heat treatment and welding of age hardening alloys materials; it establishes mathematical relations between different process variables (e.g. alloy composition, heat treatment procedure, welding conditions) and the alloy strength or hardness, based on sound physical principles (e.g. thermodynamics, kinetic theory, dislocation mechanics); it motivates faster process development, optimi
