The phase behavior of lyotropic rigid-chain liquid crystal polymer was studied by dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) with variations of the solution concentration and temperature. A chain of fused DPD particles was used to represent each mesogeni...

Adoptive transfer of naturally occurring CD4(+)CD25(+) regulatory T cells can tolerize transplantation alloresponses in animal models. However isolation of these cells in sufficient numbers from humans is cumbersome and prone to contamination with...

Varietal and environmental factors which influence test weight were investigated in a field trial with 10 winter wheat cultivars and 2 rates of N fertilizer. Varietal differences in test weight were positively correlated with the grain protein con...
