Nonlinear model of external respiration
A mathematical model of the external respiratory system is presented which integrates component models of airway mechanics and gas exchange at the pulmonary capillaries. The respiratory system is lumped into: (1) a conducting ...
Flow induced regulation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene expression: Role of shear sensitive promoter elements
Vascular endothelium responds to hemodynamic forces such as shear stress by altering the synthesis and genetic expression of several proteins. Shear stress sensitive promoter elements and transcription factors may be ...
