Signal Transduction and the Coordination of B Lymphocyte Development and Function I: Transduction of BCR Signals from the Cell Membrane to the Nucleus

Right improvement and differentiation of B lymphocytes is es­ sential to make sure that an organism has the facility to mount an efficient humoral immune reaction opposed to international antigens. The immune method needs to preserve a stability among the deletion of damaging self-reactive B cells and the iteration of a various rep­ ertoire of B cells that has the power to acknowledge a virtually un­ constrained array of overseas antigens.

Troubleshooting Errors Inevitably you’ll run into trouble with your code and you’ll need to track down and squash a bug. The IDLE interactive mode can be your friend; the Debug menu provides several tools that will help you understand how your code is actually executing. You also have the option of seeing all your variables and stepping through the execution line by line. Syntax errors are the easiest to deal with; usually this is just a typo or a misunderstood aspect of the language. Semantic errors — where the program is well formed but doesn’t perform as expected — can be harder to figure out.

Use the passwd command to change it, especially if you’re putting your Pi on a network. The Network Once you’re on a network, there are a number of Linux utilities that you’ll be using on a regular basis. When you’re troubleshooting an Internet connection, use ifconfig, which displays all of your network interfaces and the IP addresses associated with them (see Figure 2-6). Figure 2-6. The ifconfig command gives you information about all of your network interfaces. The ping command is actually the most basic tool for troubleshooting network connections.

There are two tricks that make life much easier in the shell: autocomplete and command history. Often you will only need to type the first few characters of a command or filename, then hit tab. The shell will attempt to autocomplete the string based on the files in the current directory or programs in commonly used directories (the shell will search for executable programs in places like /bin or /usr/bin/). If you hit the up arrow on the command line you’ll be able to step back through your command history, which is useful if you mistyped a character in a long string of commands.
