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 power to mount an efficient humoral immune reaction opposed to international antigens. The immune process needs to continue 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 nearly un­ restricted array of overseas antigens.

At very low levels of research and development efforts the industrial structure is probably not conducive to a broad spectrum of innovations by patenting.

12 New Macro C-corridors in Europe, the US and Japan The C-region is of fundamental importance in understanding the structure of the world economy now emerging. In earlier periods, the location of production was determined by local availability of natural resources, accessibility to other complementary resources and accessibility of markets for the final product. This preoccupation with accessibility was a natural consequence of the reliance on the dominant transportation and communication infrastructure.

Similarly, it is possible to use research and development costs per capita as a measure of the creative efforts of a society. Although most of the fundamental scientific discoveries underlying industrial research and development have a public nature, it is costly to translate this general knowledge into product-specific knowledge. Plotting per capita research and development expenditures and patents (worldwide) of different countries, we find a very strong correlation and some disturbing deviations from the regression curve.
