HIV Protocols

In HIV Protocols, Nelson Michael and Jerome Kim have equipped a suite of state of the art recommendations crucial for learning the molecular biology, virology, and immunology of the HIV virus. The tools conceal a wide variety of study pursuits, together with quantitation of viral genomes, HIV promoter functionality, B-cell epitope mapping, viral coreceptor utilization, and measurements of T-cell functionality.

Interleukin Protocols

Interleukins, a family members of proteins that keep watch over immunity and irritation during the physique, also are keen on autoimmune disorder (rheumatoid arthritis, a number of sclerosis, and asthma); are implicated in such different stipulations as melanoma, myocardial infarction, and melancholy; and feature price within the analysis and analysis of many illnesses.

Example text

For the influence of one of these to be calculated, the other five will need to be estimated or known. The results obtained have been applied to a wide range of geological problems, as discussed below. The Quaternary icehouse Microfossils from deep sea sediments have played a crucial role in the reconstruction of palaeotemperature and ice volume changes over the last 100 million years. Emiliani (1955) used the δ18 O in planktonic foraminifera from deep sea cores to outline oxygen isotope stages for the Quaternary, believing these to reflect only surface temperature changes alone.
