Equation (34) can be combined with (25) and (26) to yield explicitly the set of the local extrema of interphase Poisson's ratio in terms of the polynomial degree n.
Interphase cell showing amplified HER2 signal pattern.
Our previous immunofluorescence analysis[sup][9] showed that GFP-fused long and middle isoforms of NuMA were mainly localized in the nucleus during interphase and the spindle poles at metaphase.
Furthermore, although few studies where the presence of the interphase in nanodielectrics has been investigated with EFM can be found in the literature [11], an attempt at theoretical interpretation has not been proposed yet [16].
Interphase FISH analysis confirmed the presence of BCR/ABL1 fusion in 20% of the nuclei and also demonstrated a 20q deletion in 91.5% of the nuclei (Figure 6).

However, as it seen from data of the table, they significantly differ on interphase activity.
There was irregularity in the left lateral aspect of endo-myometrial interphase. There was a wide zone of differentiation in the endometrium-myometrium interphase on left lateral side [Fig.
Other topics of the 64 selected papers include the influence of loading conditions on the deformation behavior of human enamel studied by instrumented indentation, using microhardness to determine the fracture stress of ultra-high-strength ribbons, mechanical properties of the interface in heterogeneous diffusion welds on titanium and austenitic steel, a modulus mapping test to characterize the interphase in polymeric composite reinforced by carbon fiber, and verifying a numerical model for trabecular tissue using a compression test and time-lapse X-ray radiography based on a material model determined from a three-point bending test of a single trabecula.
Unlike conventional cytogenetic techniques which require metaphase nuclei (dividing cells), FISH can be applied to nondividing interphase nuclei; hence, uncultured cells can be used [1, 2].
