  • and gait is mostly derived from studies that measured and reported EF as a composite score [12,18,19]. Relatively few studies have focused on the age-related deficits in specific components of executive function and most of these studies were based on a traditional set of tests of executive function, without detailing specific components. The conclusions drawn from these studies might, therefore, be limited by their methodologies. The putative executive measures might not load on a single executive construct, and might overlap with each other [20,21].

  • Thus, in living cells, the rates of anterograde and retrograde transport between the two organelles appear to have a substantial effect on the morphology of the Golgi. The effect of the balance between anterograde and retrograde transport on the morphology of the ER remains to be explored. Recently, increasing evidence has suggested that alteration in Golgi morphology during mitosis is not a passive process but rather an active one, which is highly coordinated with entry into mitosis and its progression.

  • The life cycle of the retrovirus consist of several steps. It begins with the binding of the viral envelope to cellular receptors, which enables fusion of the viral envelope with the cellular membrane. Consequently, the viral particle is uncoated, liberating the viral core into the cell cytoplasm. The viral DNA is reverse transcribed to DNA. Then, the viral DNA is transported to the nucleus where it is integrated into the host cell’s genome. From there, viral DNA is transcribed to RNA, some of which is translated to proteins.

  • The tax-exempt money market is more complex than the taxable money market. That’s largely because of a supply-and-demand imbalance for very short-term municipal securities.

But supply is limited.

This ‘failure rate’ is then quoted as a sign of the high risk of entry into an independent business activity. It has also served as a justification against intervention because of the risk that a high proportion of investment support to start-ups will be quickly written off. The policy implication is that it is better to target public support on existing businesses.

In the worst case, there would have been two extra tuples: if node 5 produced a tuple which joined with a tuple on node 7 a total of 4 transmis- sions would have been performed. In general, no more than 2 + depth transmissions will be required, as any pair of nodes in the same group differ by no more...

The archaeological evidence suggests that llama and alpaca were domesticated at very high altitudes of 4000 to 5000 m in the Andes of southern Peru and western Bolivia. An approximate time of first domestication would be about 6000 years BP. This period has been based on changes in the type of molar teeth and the increasing numbers of bones of young as compared to old animals found at archaeological sites. ...

DNA is the molecule that carries the instructions for nearly everything our cells do. We usually look like our parents because they are the source of our DNA. However, DNA affects more than the way we look. It also determines our risk for developing certain diseases, including some types of cancer.
