The comparative CD values of other phytochemicals have been documented by others [87-90], with lower micromolar concentrations representing those with the higher inducer activity (Figure 2).
In the first step, an equivalent inducer of reduced dimensions is considered for the modeling.
Six hours after induction, secretion of IL-1[beta] and TNF-[alpha] tended to stabilize, except when the dose of inducer was higher (1 mg [mL.sup.-1]), secretion levels maintained as detected at 4 h.

sibogae at the following developmental stages were collected and prepared for immunolabeling: metamorphically competent larvae at ages 8-11 days and metamorphic stages were examined in larvae from days 10 and 11 that were fixed every hour between 1 and 10 h, 24 h, and 26 h after initial exposure to the metamorphic inducer. Larvae were examined at metamorphic stages B, C, D, F, and G (Bonar and Hadfield, 1974).
On the front shroud, static pressure taps are provided from the inducer leading edge to the impeller exit.
The aim of this paper is to study the structure of the flow given by the use of a straight hydrofoil cascade for the manufacturing of the inducer blades.

ReGen Therapeutics Plc, London, U.K., a company whose product Colostrinin has shown efficacy as a potential treatment for Alzheimer's disease, has been awarded a patent on the use of Colostrinin as an inducer of cytokines.
In my studies, I have examined the effect of lethal toxins in induction or inhibition of inflammatory cytokines using different doses and varying proportions of lethal toxin subcomponents (protective antigen and lethal factor) using a transformed cell line (RAW) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) as the cytokine inducer. Cell line macrophages were incubated with lethal toxin alone or in combination with varying doses of LPS for approximately 16 hours and the supernatant was harvested for cytokine determination.
