(1)
Digital Cellular System.

DCS

(1) See also DSC.

(2 ) Digital Cross-connect System) A network switching and grooming device used by telecom carriers. See digital cross-connect.

(3) (Distributed Control System) A process control system that uses a network to interconnect sensors, controllers, operator terminals and actuators. Generally very large and costly systems, a DCS typically contains several computers for control and uses proprietary interconnections. Contrast with PLC and PAC. See process control and PAS.

(4) (Distributed Communications System) A telephone system that puts small switches close to subscribers, making local loops shorter and maximizing the long lines to the central office.

(5) (Desktop Color Separation) A graphics format for color separation that uses five Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files, one for each of the CMYK colors, and one master file, which links the other four and contains a preview image.

(6) (Declarative Content Standard) An HTML and JavaScript-based format for delivering content for interactive TV. See ATV Forum.

Phagocytic function of DC-SIGN modified DCs was enhanced, compared with the control group (phagocytosis rates: 74.0% [+ or -] 3.4% in DC-SIGN modified DCs; 64.7% [+ or -] 6.8% in control group, t = 3.104, P = 0.013).
The DCs function in promoting T cells proliferation did not significantly change among Ad-DC-SIGN/Af, AdNull/Af and control/Af groups.
In addition, Mannan/Af group secreted more IL-10 than control/Af group (Mannan/Af group: 30.17 [+ or -] 8.94 pg/ml; t = 4.146, P = 0.007), suggesting that Mannan and overexpression of DC-SIGN could promote secretion of IL-10 from Af-infected DCs [Figure 2]d.
DCs were collected from each group, and protein lysate (Pik Wan Biotechnology Research Institute, China) was added after washing with precooled PBS.
DCs Were Identified by Morphology and Flow Cytometry.
MSCs Downregulate the Expression of Costimulatory Molecules on the Surface of DCs. As shown in Figure 5, when MSCs were added for coculture 2h after DCs were plated (with the MSC:DC ratios of 1:1 and 1:10), the expression of CD80, CD83, CD86, and MHC II on the surface of DCs was significantly lower than that in DCs of DC only group detected by flow cytometry.
Understanding how the DCS model complements understanding the needs of persons with disabilities may allow rehabilitation counselors to understand factors related to an individual's difficulty maintaining employment.
The DCS model provides some insight into various aspects of the environment and the potential experience of daily hassles.
Rehabilitation counselors should appraise the individual and the work environment in terms of the DCS model and provide career counseling to individuals based on this knowledge.
