The stress point of the quotient space theory is the relations of basic interconversion and mutual interdependence between research different granularity world, describes the theory of spatial relationship theory, but the random theory is mainly interdependence relations between showing, portray and the granularity and the concept research granularity.
Proponents of a hydrogen economy advocate hydrogen as a potential fuel for motive power including cars and boats and on-board auxiliary power, stationary power generation (e.g., for the energy needs of buildings), and as an energy storage medium (e.g., for interconversion from excess electric power generated off-peak).
It addresses the chemistry and cellular localization of polyamines; mechanisms of biosynthesis, their interconversion, and degradation in fungi, in comparison with animal and plant cells; polyamine distribution in the fungal kingdom as compared to other eukaryotic organisms; regulatory mechanisms of polyamine metabolism at the transcriptional, translational, and posttranslational levels in fungi and other organisms; general functions of polyamines, their possible modes of action, and their role in cell differentiation and morphogenesis in fungi and other organisms; and polyamine metabolism as a target for disease.
Such rapid interconversion between epithelial and mesenchymal states implies plasticity in response to EMT-inducing signals, thus suggesting that residence in these states is metastable and governed by transient and complex cellular and molecular mechanisms [45].
