Dimerization of the Jun–Fos activator protein-1 (AP-1) transcriptional reg-ulator is mediated by coiled coil regions that facilitate binding of the basic
regions to a specific promoter. AP-1 is responsible for the regulation of a
number of genes involved in cell proliferation.
Chapter 15 - Chemical reactions. The objectives of Chapter 15 are to: Give an overview of fuels and combustion; apply the conservation of mass to reacting systems to determine balanced reaction equations; define the parameters used in combustion analysis, such as air–fuel ratio, percent theoretical air, and dew-point temperature;...
Thermodynamics is an essential subject taught to all science and engineering students. If the coverage of this subject is restricted to theoretical analysis, student will resort to memorising the facts in order to pass the examination. Therefore, this book is set out with the aim to present this subject from an angle of demonstration of how these laws are used in practical situation.This book is designed for the virtual reader in mind, it is concise and easy to read, yet it presents all the basic laws of thermodynamics in a simplistic and straightforward manner....
Chapter 2 - Energy, energy transfer, and general energy analysis. The objectives of Chapter 2 are to: Introduce the concept of energy and define its various forms; discuss the nature of internal energy; define the concept of heat and the terminology associated with energy transfer by heat; discuss the three mechanisms of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation; define the concept of work, including electrical work and several forms of mechanical work;...
Chapter 4 - Energy analysis of closed systems. The objectives of Chapter 4 are to: Examine the moving boundary work or P dV work commonly encountered in reciprocating devices such as automotive engines and compressors, identify the first law of thermodynamics as simply a statement of the conservation of energy principle for closed (fixed mass) systems, develop the general energy balance applied to closed systems,...
Chapter 5 (Part 1) - Mass and energy analysis of control volumes. We start this chapter with the development of the general conservation of mass relation for control volumes, and we continue with a discussion of flow work and the energy of fluid streams.
Chapter 5 (Part 2) - Mass and energy analysis of control volumes. The objectives of this chapter are to: Solve energy balance problems for common steady-flow devices such as nozzles, compressors, turbines, throttling valves, mixers, heaters, and heat exchangers; apply the energy balance to general unsteady-flow processes with particular emphasis on the uniform-flow process as the model for commonly encountered charging and discharging processes.
Chapter 2 - Energy, energy transfer, and general energy analysis. In this chapter, we consider each of these modes of energy transport across the boundaries of the general thermodynamic system.

Introduce the concepts of fuels and combustion; apply the conservation of mass to reacting systems to determine balanced reaction equations; define the parameters used in combustion analysis, such as air-fuel ratio, percent theoretical air, and dew point temperature; apply energy balances to reacting systems for both steady-flow control volumes and fixed mass systems;...
In this chapter, we review two important methods that account for much of the newer work in engineering thermodynamics and thermal design and optimization. The method of exergy analysis rests on thermodynamics alone.
The heat transfer and analysis on heat pipe and exchanger, and thermal stress are
significant issues in a design of wide range of industrial processes and devices. This
book introduces advanced processes and modeling of heat transfer, gas flow,
oxidation, and of heat pipe and exchanger to the international community. It includes
17 advanced and revised contributions, and it covers mainly (1) thermodynamic
effects and thermal stress, (2) heat pipe and exchanger, (3) gas flow and oxidation, and
(4) heat analysis....
The constitutive law of plastic deformation expresses the effects of material
behavior and properties for stress analysis in the design of manufacturing technology
and product service behavior, for materials testing, and for the maintenance
of structural and machine components.
The book represents the state of the art, but the editors do not rule out other
concepts of constitutive laws. There are many different facets of the same problem
and as many answers; the right one is the one that gives the most practical solution,
the one that best serves the specific problem....
Starting from a derivation of the conservation equations for multicomponent multiphase flows in porous media and a discussion of convective vs. diffusive/dispersive transport, the reader is introduced to a mathematical framework, based on the method of characteristics, for solving convection-dominated transport problems.
Energy is defined as the capacity of a substance to do work. It is a property of the substance and
it can be transferred by interaction of a system and its surroundings. The student would have
encountered these interactions during the study of Thermodynamics. However, Thermodynamics
deals with the end states of the processes and provides no information on the physical
mechanisms that caused the process to take place. Heat Transfer is an example of such a process.
A convenient definition of heat transfer is energy in transition due to temperature differences.
Modern complex dynamical systems1 are highly interconnected and mutually
interdependent, both physically and through a multitude of information
and communication network constraints. The sheer size (i.e., dimensionality)
and complexity of these large-scale dynamical systems often necessitates
a hierarchical decentralized architecture for analyzing and controlling these
systems. Specifically, in the analysis and control-system design of complex
large-scale dynamical systems it is often desirable to treat the overall system
as a collection of interconnected subsystems.
