Role of Glucose and Glutamine Metabolism in the Growth of a Human T -lymphoblastoid Line, Jurkat
The interrelationship between glucose and glutamine metabolism was examined using Jurkat, a human T-lymphoblastoid line. This study utilized three experimental approaches to examine the metabolism of Jurkat: (i) an in vitro ...
A microvisual study of viscosity and mass transfer effects on two-phase flow in porous media
A microvisual flow cell was used to observe the effects of fluid viscosity ratio and of pore size distribution on the mechanisms of steady cocurrent two-phase flow in porous media. The transition in flow mechanisms was ...
Characterization of T-lymphocyte-target cell adhesion using a parallel plate flow chamber
A 100 fold range of shear stress (.04-4 dynes/cm$\sp2$) was used to demonstrate that the level of shear used in conjugate enumeration assays affects the absolute magnitude of CTL-TC conjugates observed. Kinetic analysis ...
Effect of shear stress on surface membrane potassium ion permeability of calf pulmonary artery endothelial cells (Potassium ion)
This study aims to determine the effect of shear stress on membrane potassium (K$\sp+$) permeability in vascular endothelial cells. Cultured monolayers of calf pulmonary artery endothelial cells, preloaded with $\rm ...
Van der Waals model of liquid wetting layers
A phenomenological theory of wetting layer systems based on the van der Waals theory of interfaces is developed. For classical critical exponents the local composition profile and the wetting layer thickness are determined ...
The influence of culture environment on antigen shedding from the surface of colon cancer cells
The roles of some nutrients and environmental factors on CEA synthesis and release has been determined for the LS180 colon cancer cell line. When these cells were grown on various carbohydrate sources, cells grown on mannose ...
