This hypothesis is supported by studies of partial mimics of distasteful butterflies that have wings with both black and red.
Recent discussion (see Rettenmeyer, 1970, and Waldbauer, 1988) suggests that strict temporal and spatial coincidence between models and mimics is not required to support a mimicry system and influence predators.
If we combine our assumptions, that the costs of financial distress vary across firms and the probability that getting caught increases with the quality gap, then we see that a low(er)-quality firm, Firm j, can choose to mimic a high(er)-quality firm, Firm i, by setting a low conversion ratio if the benefits of mimicking exceed the expected costs.
The Navy will focus on RF life testing of 1- to 26-GHz MIMICs.
Figure 1 illustrates three alternatives for insertion of MIMIC technology into ongoing systems.
Vitamin K is evolving as a key regulator of bone mineral structure and this vitamin and its mimics are therefore strongly implicated as therapeutic candidates for the prevention of osteoporosis.
It discusses differential diagnosis; clinical, morphologic, immunohistochemical, and genetic features; and characteristic traits of mimics of adipocytic neoplasms, fibroblastic/myofibroblastic and fibrohystiocytic neoplasms, smooth muscle and skeletal muscle neoplasms, vascular neoplasms, neuroectodermal neoplasms, neoplasms of uncertain differentiation, gastrointestinal stromal tumors, osseous neoplasms, and cartilaginous neoplasms.

Since then, the company and several other research groups have begun testing long-lasting GLP1 mimics in people with type 2 diabetes.
Alterations in the normal pattern of reproductive development seen in some populations of wildlife have been linked to exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDs), which have been shown to mimic sex steroid hormones (1).
RHAKOSS is under development as a preformed composite that mimics the natural dual cortical-cancellous composition of human bone, providing high strength while also allowing for the ingrowth of host bone to address the vertebral interbody fusion and spinal reconstruction market.
It is the first allowance from our series of applications relating to our antimicrobial program - a program in which we are developing novel antibiotics and antimicrobial biomaterials consisting of small molecule and polymer mimics of the host defense proteins.
