Elucidating the behavior of


The service process is correlated and its structure is presented through discrete-time batch Markovian service process (DBMSP).

We examine the temporal behavior of packet loss by means of conditional statistics with respect to congested and noncongested periods that occur in an alternating manner.

This indicates that 1-deoxy SL are metabolized differently than canonical sphingolipids.

Sustainable consumer behaviour—behaviour motivated or influenced by social and/or environmental considerations—is an important topic in public policy and consumer psychology.

Our findings clarify the mechanisms underlying the observed sex effect, confirm the utility of personality constructs in clarifying differences in consumer attitudes and behaviours, and have compelling implications for public policy.

Polyketide natural products represent a rich source for discovery of new bioactive compounds.

Comparing the chromatographic behavior of native 1-deoxy SO to chemically synthesized SPH m18:1(14Z) and (14E) stereoisomers assigned the native compound to be SPH m18:1(14Z).

Polyketides are a large family of bioactive natural products synthesized by polyketide synthase (PKS) enzyme complexes predominantly from acetate and propionate.

Given the structural diversity of compounds produced using these two simple building blocks, there has been longstanding interest in engineering the incorporation of alternative extender units.

This result suggests that the covalent linkage between the growing polyketide chain and the enzyme is lost in these cases, which would limit efficient chain elongation after insertion of a fluorinated monomer.

1-Deoxysphingolipids (1-deoxy SL) are formed by an alternate substrate usage of the enzyme serine-palmitoyltransferase and devoid of the C1-OH-group present in canonical sphingolipids (SL).
