A functional language.

illuminance

The density of luminous power, also called illumination. One lumen of luminous flux, uniformly incident on 1 square foot of area, produces an illuminance of 1 footcandle; in SI units, one lumen of luminous flux, uniformly incident on 1 square meter of area, produces an illuminance of 1 lux.

Fc

(1) See Fibre Channel.

(2) (File Compare) An external DOS/Windows command that compares the content of two files. The following example compares the text files 1.TXT and 2.TXT. See file compare and Comp.
fc 1.txt 2.txt     blank areas
                     must match

  fc 1.txt 2.txt /w  blank areas do not
                     have to match

  fc 1.txt 2.txt /a  show only start and
                     end of mismatches

MISMATCHES IN TEXT FILES
Text files are compared line by line, and discrepancies are displayed as follows:
***** first file
   start
   ...
   ...
   end
   ***** second file
   start
   ...
   ...
   end
   *****


BINARY FILES
Binary files, such as .EXE, .COM, .SYS, .OBJ, .LIB and .BIN, are compared byte for byte. To compare program files ABC.EXE and XYZ.EXE, type:
fc abc.exe xyz.exe

MISMATCHES IN BINARY FILES
Binary file discrepancies are shown as follows. The AAAAAA is the hexadecimal location of the mismatched bytes, and the two BB's are the bytes (in hex) from the two files:
     AAAAAAAA BB BB

Ravetch has further shown that these anti-inflammatory properties can be reproduced with sFc, a fully recombinant preparation of appropriately sialylated IgG Fc fragments, providing a more efficacious and potent treatment at lower dose levels.
15) removal of Fc fragment or after addition of 15 mg/L native MAK33 or 15 mg/L heat-aggregated MAK33 II Results normalized after 269 3.
2] fragment of ~112 kDa and a Fc fragment of 36 kDa (two parts of 18 kDa each).
Available sera from those patients were frozen and thawed and rechecked manually with (a) basic buffer (the screening assay); (b) basic buffer plus 15 mg/L native murine monoclonal MAK33 added; (c) basic buffer plus 15 mg/L heat-treated MAK33; (d) the Fc fragment removed plus basic buffer; (e) the Fc fragment removed plus basic buffer plus 15 mg/L native MAK33; and (f) Fc fragment removed plus basic buffer plus 15 mg/L heat-treated MAK33 (the reference assay).
For type III samples, removal of the Fc fragment normalized CEA concentrations, but not the addition of 15 mg/L heat-treated murine monoclonal MAK33.
Removing the Fc fragment from the capture antibody as the only measure nearly eliminated interference.
A second choice is to reduce interference by removing the Fc fragment (29) or by changing the structure of (32, 33) or chemically modifying (34) the assay antibodies.
Digoxin-specific Fab fragments are produced by cleaving sheep digoxin-specific IgG with papain to form two Fab fragments (50 000 Da each) and one 50 000-Da Fc fragment (2).
The first, exemplified by ARGX-113, uses mutation-bearing Fc fragments as products for the treatment of autoimmune disorders.
