Second, we provide delay tolerant index cache using delta cell. Index maintenance caused by data manipulation associated with this index is delayed within the tolerance.
- key is the key of a delta cell. It corresponds to the key of relational changed record before it is divided into cells, key is denoted as 2-tuple key :< keyname, key value >, where keyname is the key name of the record, and keyvalue is the key value of the record;
- C is key/value of this delta cell. It is denoted as 2tuple C :< name, value >, where name and value are the name and value of this delta cell respectively.
Though altered islet localization of alpha and delta cells together with slightly higher islet somatostatin content has been demonstrated [23], extensive delta cell hyperplasia has not been reported in previous studies and its potential significance for diabetes development has not been discussed so far.
Our new findings may hypothetically reflect two lines of contribution of delta cell hyperplasia to the developing diabetic etiology: (i) SST effects deteriorating beta cell viability at the simultaneously diminished autocrine insulin maintenance of beta cells [31] and (ii) acceleration of the already altered (impaired) biogenesis of beta cells due to delta cell hyperplasia.
This protein has also been found to bind antigens that are produced in large amounts in tumour cells, which then activates gamma delta cells against these tumour cells.
Prof De Libero said, "The identification of the molecular mechanisms of how human gamma delta cells get activated opens doors to novel opportunities for immunotherapy of infections and tumours."
