Cardiac progenitor cells from adult myocardium: Homing, differentiation, and fusion after infarction

Potential repair by cell grafting or mobilizing endogenous cells holds particular attraction in heart disease, where the meager capacity for cardiomyocyte proliferation likely contributes to the irreversibility of heart failure. Whether cardiac progenitors...

Cognitive systems based on adaptive algorithms

The type of cognitive system (CS) studied here has four basic parts: (1) a set of interacting elementary productions, called classifiers, (2) a performance algorithm that directs the action of the system in the environment, (3) a simple learning algorithm...

Desertification and climate change—the Australian perspective

In Australia, desertification tends to be associated with land degradation in the range- lands. It results from unsustainable land use and the impact of European settlement, rather than chang- ing climate. Desertification can, however, be exacerbated...

Passive immunization against cachectin/tumor necrosis factor protects mice from lethal effect of endotoxin

A highly specific polyclonal rabbit antiserum directed against murine cachectin/tumor necrosis factor (TNF) was prepared. When BALB/c mice were passively immunized with the antiserum or with purified immune globulin, they were protected against the lethal...

Electromagnetic Analysis: Concrete Results

Although the possibility of attacking smart-cards by analyzing their electromagnetic power radiation repeatedly appears in research papers, all accessible references evade the essence of reporting conclusive experiments where actual cryptographic algorithms...

Facts and Fantasies About Commodity Futures

We construct an equally-weighted index of commodity futures monthly returns over the period between July of 1959 and March of 2004 in order to study simple properties of commodity futures as an asset class. Fully-collateralized commodity futures have...

The Institutional Context of Tolerance for Ethnic Minorities: A Comparative, Multilevel Analysis of Western Europe

Drawing on recent insights in the nationalism and citizenship regime literatures, this article develops a macrotheoretical framework for understanding cross-national variations in tolerance of ethnic minorities. Specifically, it tests the hypothesis that...
