DM is a small extrachromosomal structure that is paired, acentric, and atelomeric and can be formed by fragments of chromosomes, chromatin particles, and oncogenes.
As can be seen in Table 5, the MMP predictions from tuned EOS of critical temperature, critical pressure, acentric factor, binary interaction coefficient, and [[OMEGA].sub.b] parameter are nearly the same.
However, most applications of equations of state also require the knowledge of the acentric factor [omega], which can be calculated from the vapour pressure and the definition of the acentric factor: [omega] = -Log[[P.sup.vap]/ [P.sub.c]] at T/[T.sub.c] = 0.7-1 (Prausnitz et al., 1999).
In case 55, ICP established the mechanism of marker formation as a stable acentric chromosome with a neocentromere.
Mitotic spindle changes, at significant frequency, provoke nuclear instability by inducing structural chromosome damage, giving rise to acentric fragments, which therefore form micronuclei at the end of cell division.
Images such as Deleuze's decentred rhizome and Derrida's acentric free-play have influenced contemporary understanding of political phenomena and internet media, but their connection to mythical imagery has gone unremarked.
In this sense, the following variables were taken from reported literature [2-4]: system pressure and temperature; mole fraction of the mixture; components of the mixture; critical values of each component, and their acentric factor.
Grosso oil containing 36.2% linalyl acetate [17] reduced peripheral and acentric pain in a mouse model of pain induced by acetic acid and a hot plate; and inhalation of bergamot essential oil containing 70.26% linalyl acetate reduced capsaicin-induced peripheral pain in mice [18].
Dicentric chromosomes (DC), acentric fragments (AF), and chromatid breaks (ChB) were the indices used to evaluate the chromosomal aberrations during the present study.
