capture

 [kap´choor]
1. the production of a ventricular complex from a supraventricular source following a period of atrioventricular dissociation.
2. in cardiac pacing terminology, the successful pacing of the heart by a pulse generator.

cap·ture

(kap'chūr),
Catching and holding a particle or an electrical impulse originating elsewhere.

CAPTURE

c7E3 Fab Antiplatelet Therapy in Unstable Refractory angina. A trial assessing abciximab therapy + percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) on mortality and incidence of AMI and urgent intervention for recurrent ischaemia.
 
Primary endpoints
Composite of death, MI, or urgent intervention at 30 days of enrolment.
 
Conclusion
The primary endpoint occurred in 16% of abciximab patients and 11% of placebo patients, p = 0.012; patients with medical therapy-refractory unstable angina undergoing PTCA while receiving abciximab have decreased short-term thrombotic complications and MI compared to placebo.

capture

Cardiac pacing Depolarization of the atria and/or ventricles by an electrical stimulus delivered by an artificial pacemaker; one-to-one capture occurs when each electrical stimulus causes a corresponding depolarization. See Stimulation threshold.

cap·ture

(kap'shŭr)
Catching and holding a particle or an electrical impulse originating elsewhere.

However, the bootleggers and Baptists variation on Capture Theory is a reminder that socially undesirable results can emanate from unlikely collaborations between different, and sometimes very diverse, interest groups.
(154.) George Stigler originally named his theory "the Economic Theory of Regulation," but it is also commonly referred to as "Capture Theory."
(253.) The combination of the ADA's political power and the political power of a population that accepts the current regime of dental licensing may also produce the effect described by the "bootleggers and Baptists" variant of Capture Theory. See supra Part VII.A.1.c.
Wiley, dismayed at the judicial treatment of state action in the U.S., has recommended an alternative, four-part standard for determining whether a state action is immune from antitrust attack.(16) Immunity would be withheld if a state action (1) restrains market rivalry, (2) is not otherwise immune from federal antitrust, (3) is not responsive to a significant market failure, and (4) is the result of capture originating from the "decisive political efforts of producers who stand to profit from its competitive restraint." There are numerous difficulties with this approach, including those that are inherent to capture theory itself.
(14) Of course, capture theory does not explain why state judicial oversight is sufficient to immunize state regulation; nor does it explain why a state could not enforce its own competition rules regarding local regulations the commercial effects of which occur entirely within the state.

Whether G+C content is selected or not has little relevance to the codon capture theory but is worthy of investigation in its own right.
Stigler's capture theory of regulation applies only to the extent that government regulations and regulatory agencies exist.
While addressing some of the principal/ agent problems identified in this paper, the solution leaves other principal/agent and nearly all capture theory solutions un-addressed.
