(1) (American Power Conversion Corporation, West Kingston, RI, www.apcc.com) The leading manufacturer of UPS systems and surge suppressors, founded in 1981 by Rodger Dowdell, Neil Rasmussen and Emanual Landsman, three electronic power engineers who had worked at MIT. Although created to develop solar electricity, the company introduced its first UPS system three years later as government funding for solar energy dissipated.

(2) (Application Performance Characterization) A graphics benchmark that tests actual application performance. See GPC.

Attentuated Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (AAPC) is a variant of FAP caused by a mutation in the APC gene and inherited in the same way as classical FAR.
Both FAP and AFAP are associated with inherited mutations to the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene [1-3].
The conventional CRC molecular pathway involves a predominant pattern of chromosomal instability with a multistep accumulation of genetic aberrations that include mutations in the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene, altered regulation of the Wnt-[beta]-catenin pathway, TP53 gene mutations, and loss of heterozygosity at the 18q chromosome (Figure 1).
