The objective of this study is to demonstrate the role of oxidative stress and dopaminergic neurodegeneration in the development of equine pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID). The results support the hypothesis that PPID is a dopaminergic neurodegenerative disease. Horses with PPID had 5 ti...

Research on Pacific Islands has revealed the pivotal involvement of women in all aspects of fisheries, from harvesting through processing to marketing. Women are not 'just gleaning'; they are making essential contributions to local food security and in many cases, also enabling the commercial fishin...

Research has shown that although the integration of computers into the curriculum by teachers remains minimal, students have consistently demonstrated a positive attitude toward computers. In this paper, we report a study that examines the secondary school students' use of computers for learning. We...

In 1996, the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO)(FN1) introduced a provincial testing program for all students at Grades 3 and 6 in Ontario. This created a unique opportunity to investigate French immersion students' performance on tests of English reading and writing and mathematics ...

In the past, study of the ecological aspect of the community has ranged from a somewhat superficial treatment of the spatial patterning of a locality to a depth analysis of its ecological structuring & related processes. The present study takes an intermediate position. Study of the ecological aspec...

Background and purpose:

Postsynaptic density-95 inhibitors reduce ischemic brain damage without inhibiting excitatory neurotransmission, circumventing the negative consequences of glutamatergic inhibition. However, their efficacy in permanent ischemia and in providing permanent neuroprotection a...

Objective -

To estimate cat population size, management, and outside faecal deposition and evaluate attitudes of cat owners and nonowners to stray animal control, water pollution, and wildlife protection. Design - Cross-sectional survey. Sample Population - 294 adult residents of Cayucos, Los O...

Objective -

To assess the accuracy and reliability of a visual method of evaluating horseshoe characteristics. Animals - 1,199 Thoroughbred racehorses.

Procedure -

Characteristics of 1 forelimb horseshoe were visually assessed on horses immediately prior to racing by 5 field observer...

Context:

The rotary diversified diet, which involves food elimination and rotation of remaining allowed foods, is commonly used in the management of environmental illness. No studies have considered patient adherence while evaluating the effectiveness of the diet in controlling symptoms.

O...

Regular expressions are used in many practical applications. Practical regular expressions are commonly called "regex". It is known that regex are different from regular expressions. In this paper, we give regex a formal treatment. We make a distinction between regex and extended regex; while regex ...

We define the pattern expressions as an extension of both regular expressions and patterns. We prove several properties of the new family of languages, similar to those of extended regex languages [Câmpeanu et al., Int. J. Found. Comput. Sci. 14 (6) (2003) 1007–1018]. We also define an automata s...

In this paper we prove a lower bound for the maximum state complexity of Deterministic Finite Cover Automata (DFCAs) obtained from Non-deterministic Finite Automata (NFAs) of a given state complexity n, in case of a binary alphabet. We show, for binary alphabets, that the difference between maximum ...

Quite often, trivial problems stated for deterministic finite automata (DFA) are surprisingly difficult for the non-deterministic case (NFA). In any non-minimal DFA for a given regular language, we can find two equivalent states which can be “merged” without changing the accepted language. This ...

Prostate cancer, one of the most common cancers in the Western world, affects many men worldwide. This study investigated the effects of magnolol, a compound found in the roots and bark of the magnolia tree Magnolia officinalis, on the behavior of 2 androgen insensitive human prostate cancer cell li...

The nuclear reaction O-18 (d, 2n) F-18 and the separation of F-18 from the irradiated samples have been studied. For this reaction liquid H2O samples were irradiated with deuterons beam in the stainless steel cells cooled with water. The formed positron emiting F-18 was separated from (H2O)-O-18 by ...

We introduce a new variant of the heavily studied model of H systems. The new variant will use an external factor to determine the set of the active splicing rules. We improve the best known universality result for time-varying H systems with respect to the diameter of such a system and we prove tha...

We present a fast incremental algorithm for constructing minimal Deterministic Finite Cover Automata (DFCA) for a given language. Since it was shown that the minimal DFCA for a language L has less states than the minimal Deterministic Finite Automata (DFA) for the same language L, this technique see...
