Specifically, the cells showed atrial-like gene expression, contractile force, contraction and relaxation kinetics, electrophysiological properties, and pharmacological responses to atrial-selective drugs.
Relaxation kinetics of the bilayer should follow the relaxation kinetics of the material that relaxes faster.
10a), the relaxation kinetics were slowed slightly but the relaxation modulus was between those of PP-g-MA and PA6 as for the nonreactive PA6/PP pair.

Cooke (biochemistry, U, of Oklahoma) and Cleland (biochemistry, U, of Wisconsin) introduce readers to kinetics and nomenclature, then cover enzyme assays, derivations of initial velocity rate equations and data processing, initial velocity studies in the absence or presence of added inhibitors, pre-steady-state and relaxation kinetics, isotopic probes of kinetic mechanisms, isotropic effects as a probe of mechanisms, and pH dependence of kinetic parameters and isotope effects.
Pressure-clamp technique for measurement of the relaxation kinetics of mechanosensitive channels.
This represents the polymer relaxation kinetics, which depends on the model chosen to describe its viscoelastic behaviour.
The acceleration of the relaxation kinetics denotes a huge influence of nanofiller on the matrix by increasing the molecular interactions in the matrix (6).
Equation 1, although, is written for a single relaxation time and it is well known that a distribution of the relaxation times is required to describe the relaxation kinetics. A continuous spectrum can be introduced by means of the stretched exponential function or Kohlrausch-Williams-Watt equation [Eq.
Their nature appears to be similar to pre-existing defects as the enthalpy relaxation kinetics associated to their relaxation appears to be the same but shifted to smaller times (51).
This study offers two (from multiple possible) phenomenological quantitative theoretical models describing the relaxation kinetics for oligomeric systems and compares them to rheological and relaxation experimental data.
In particular, a number of parameters (to be discussed in detail below) are often used to describe the structural relaxation kinetics and different procedures have been adopted for experimental evaluation of the parameters.
