BCR

Breakpoint cluster region. A 5.8-kb DNA segment on chromosome 22q11.23, which, in contrast to the well-studied BCR-ABL fusion protein related to malignant transformation of pluripotent haematopoietic stem cells in CML, encodes a gene product of unknown function, which has serine/threonine kinase activity and is a GTPase-activating protein for p21rac.

In CML there is a reciprocal translocation between chromosome 9q34—a site which contains the human homolog of the Abelson viral oncogene, c-abl—and chromosome 22q1, the location of the breakpoint cluster region; this translocation results in formation of the Philadelphia chromosome, which transcribes a hybrid mRNA, encoding a protein with tyrosine kinase activity.

Broadly speaking, ROI is reflected by numbers: these include the benefit cost ratio (B/C; a number greater than one implies that the program is justified on both internal efficiency and external effectiveness grounds); the net present value (NPV; a number greater than zero implies that building the program today is justified instead of waiting for the future); and the internal rate of return (IRR; when the rate of return obtained from program implementation exceeds the market interest rate; this is the measure used to determine returns from financial investing).
The gross margins, return to labour and benefit cost ratio were all positive for the technologies studied, implying that they were economically viable (Table 2).
In order to calculate benefit cost ratio, the private costs of pesticides were added to the producer rent yielding the gross value added from this input factor.
