Previous research provides evidence for a conceptual distinction between self-assessed and objective knowledge, and relatively little is known about the relationship between knowledge and information search. The current research provides empirical evidence for differentiating the two knowledge types. Furthermore, it suggests that the relative effects of the two types of knowledge on pre-purchase information search depend on the type of information source.
Electrochemistry has been undergoing significant transformations in the last few decades. It is now the province of academics interested only in measuring thermodynamic properties of solutions and of industrialists using electrolysis or manufacturing batteries, with a huge gap between them. It has become clear that these, apparently distinct subjects, alongside others, have a common ground and that they have grown towards each other, particularly as a result of research into the rates of electrochemical processes....
What is programming? Programming, according to Dictionary.com, is “a set of coded
instructions that enables a machine, especially a computer, to perform a desired sequence
of operations.” In other words, programming allows you to make your computer do whatever
you want it to do. Programming is used in everything related to the computer, but
there are many distinct flavors of programming. This book teaches game programming.
There are three distinct classifications of physical network media that OSPF can differentiate between. Each of these network types requires a slightly different configuration to optimize the performance of OSPF.
In this paper we give a new proof for the classiﬁcation result in . We show that isoparametric hypersurfaces with four distinct principal curvatures in spheres are of Cliﬀord type provided that the multiplicities m1 , m2 of the principal curvatures satisfy m2 ≥ 2m1 − 1. This inequality is satisﬁed for all but ﬁve possible pairs (m1 , m2 ) with m1 ≤ m2 .
Advances in the diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure of neurological diseases
are based upon scientific discovery. The journey from discovery to treatment is often
arduous and involves both basic and clinical science. Over the ages, multiple intertwined
paths of discovery connect the recognition of distinct diseases of the nervous
system to exquisite diagnostic descriptions, which, when coupled with the scientific
understanding of the disease, have allowed the development of effective treatments

This book is based on the Machette Lectures, delivered at the University
of Ohio, Athens OH in March 1998. It gives me great pleasure to
acknowledge the generous support of the Machette Foundation for the
lecture series and its subsequent publication. I am particularly grateful to
the Philosophy Department of Ohio University at Athens OH for invit-
ing me and for providing such a rewarding and stimulating environment
in which to do philosophy. My special thanks to James Petrik, Donald
Borchert and Albert Mosley for managing the executive side of the visit
Mitochondrial cytochromescandc1 are present in all eukaryotes that use
oxygen as the terminal electron acceptor in the respiratory chain. Matura-tion of c-type cytochromes requires covalent attachment of the heme cofac-tor to the protein, and there are at least five distinct biogenesis systems
that catalyze this post-translational modification in different organisms and
Integrins are the major receptor type known to facilitate cell adhesion and
lamellipodia formation on extracellular matrix proteins. However, collagen-related peptide and thrombin have recently been shown to mediate platelet
lamellipodia formation when presented as immobilized surfaces.
The single-copy mouse genePtprrgives rise to different protein tyrosine
phosphatase (PTP) isoforms in neuronal cells through the use of distinct
promoters, alternative splicing, and multiple translation initiation sites.
Here, we examined the array of post-translational modifications imposed
on the PTPRR protein isoforms PTPBR7, PTP-SL, PTPPBSc42 and
PTPPBSc37, which have distinct N-terminal segments and localize to dif-ferent parts of the cell.
Recognition of viral nucleic acids by vertebrate host cells results in the syn-thesis and secretion of type I interferons (IFN-a⁄b), which induce an anti-viral state in neighboring cells. We have cloned the genes and promoters of
two type I IFNs from Atlantic salmon. Both genes have the potential to
encode IFN transcripts with either a short or a long 5¢-untranslated region,
apparently controlled by two distinct promoter regions, PR-I and PR-II,
Heterodisulfide reductase (Hdr) is a unique disulfide reduc-tase that plays a key role in the energy metabolism of
methanogenic archaea. Two types of Hdr have been identi-fied and characterized from distantly related methanogens.
Here we show that the sulfate-reducing archaeonArchaeo-globus profunduscultivated on H2/sulfate forms enzymes
related toboth typesofHdr.Fromthemembrane fractionof

Class II MHC genes (for example, the humanHLA-DRAgene) are
expressed at the cell surface in many professional and nonprofessional anti-gen-presenting cells in a variety of anatomical locations. Here, we report
about 13 mouse transgenic lines (11 of which have not been previously des-cribed) generated with four distinct sets of DRAtransgenes carrying pro-gressive, informative 5¢ and 3¢ deletions.
Microbiological source attribution approaches have also been used to estimate the
contribution of different sources and transmission pathways of campylobacteriosis in New
Zealand. These techniques involve examining the epidemiology of campylobacteriosis at the
genotype level by comparing C. jejuni genotypes from humans with those found in a range of
food and environmental sources. In 2005, a major source attribution study for campylobacteriosis
was initiated at a sentinel surveillance site in the Manawatu region of New Zealand (12).
WNK4 kinase mutations produce the autosomal dominant disorder famil-ial hyperkalemia and hypertension (FHH), also known as pseudohypo-aldosteronism type II, by a molecular mechanism that is not completely
Type I antifreeze proteins (AFPs) are usually small, Ala-richa-helical poly-peptides found in right-eyed flounders and certain species of sculpin. These
proteins are divided into two distinct subclasses, liver type and skin type,
which are encoded by separate gene families. Blood plasma from Atlantic
(Liparis atlanticus) and dusky (Liparis gibbus) snailfish contain type I AFPs
that are significantly larger than all previously described type I AFPs.
Composites are engineered or naturally occurring materials made from two or more
constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties which
remain separate and distinct within the finished structure. Basically, they can be
categorized into two major types, i.e., structural composites with outstanding
mechanical properties and functional composites with various outstanding physical,
chemical or electrochemical properties. They have been widely used in a wide variety
of products, e.g.
