CA.1afa.5A

A gene on chromosome 16p24.3 that encodes a carbonic anhydrase, a zinc metalloenzyme that catalyses the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. Carbonic anhydrases participate in various biological processes, including respiration, calcification, maintaining acid-base balance and bone resorption, as well as producing aqueous humour, cerebrospinal fluid, saliva and gastric acid. Carbonic anhydrase 5A is localised in mitochondria, expressed primarily in the liver and may play an important role in ureagenesis and gluconeogenesis.

(2006) proposed a model for analyzing CLV and then segmentation of the customers based on that.
Accordingly, first of all, we observed that CLV is, in fact, a final element of the RM activity.

Se tiene que una mejora en el CLV tiene un impacto positivo sobre el crecimiento del customer equity o valor de la cartera total de clientes, por lo cual esta variable se ve afectada tambien por la cantidad total de clientes.
Ademas, la empresa debe realizar un proceso de retencion el cual busca incrementar la tasa de retencion de clientes (r), con el objetivo final de elevar el CLV.
We focus our attention on a CLV scorecard and cohort analysis--two tools that managers and management accountants in SBEs can use to gain a better understanding of the way they measure and manage customer profitability.
First, firms are becoming increasingly interested in customer management processes, for which an understanding of the concept of CLV is a prerequisite.
In the present study, time-kill experiments with the ethanolic extracts of the stem bark of cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum; CIN), flower bud and stalk of clove (Syzygium aromaticum, CLV) and seed of cumin (Cuminum cyminum, CMN), were carried out in order to determine their bactericidal effect on MRSA.
Sheth of Emory University, Atlanta, presented findings from a small study in which she and colleagues analyzed serum and cervicovaginal lavage (CLV) samples collected twice weekly for 3 weeks from 20 HIV-positive women in the United States.
