  8. 50-60 Hz electric and magnetic field effects on cognitive function in humans: A review

    Crasson, M

    2003-07-01

    This paper reviews the effect of 50-60 Hz weak electric, magnetic and combined electric and magnetic field exposure on cognitive functions such as memory, attention, information processing and time perception, as determined by electroencephalographic methods and performance measures. Overall, laboratory studies, which have investigated the acute effects of power frequency fields on cognitive functioning in humans are heterogeneous, in terms of both electric and magnetic field (EMF) exposure and the experimental design and measures used. Results are inconsistent and difficult to interpret with regard to functional relevance for possible health risks. Statistically significant differences between field and control exposure, when they are found, are small, subtle, transitory, without any clear dose-response relationship and difficult to reproduce. The human performance or event related potentials (ERPs) measures that might specifically be affected by EMF exposure, as well as a possible cerebral structure or function that could be more sensitive to EMF, cannot be better determined.

  9. HUMAN MACHINE INTERFACE (HMI) EVALUATION OF ROOMS TA-50-1-60/60A AT THE RADIOACTIVE LIQUID WASTE TREATMENT FACILITY (RLWTF)

    Gilmore, Walter E. [Los Alamos National Laboratory; Stender, Kerith K. [Los Alamos National Laboratory

    2012-08-29

    This effort addressed an evaluation of human machine interfaces (HMIs) in Room TA-50-1-60/60A of the Radioactive Liquid Waste Treatment Facility (RLWTF). The evaluation was performed in accordance with guidance outlined in DOE-STD-3009, DOE Standard Preparation Guide for U.S. Department of Energy Nonreactor Nuclear Facility Documented Safety Analyses, 2006 [DOE 2006]. Specifically, Chapter 13 of DOE 2006 highlights the 10 CFR 830, Nuclear Safety Management, 2012, [CFR 2012] and DOE G 421.1-2 [DOE 2001a] requirements as they relate to the human factors process and, in this case, the safety of the RLWTF. The RLWTF is a Hazard Category 3 facility and, consequently, does not have safety-class (SSCs). However, safety-significant SSCs are identified. The transuranic (TRU) wastewater tanks and associated piping are the only safety-significant SSCs in Rooms TA-50-1-60/60A [LANL 2010]. Hence, the human factors evaluation described herein is only applicable to this particular assemblage of tanks and piping.

    A Dhawan; S Roychowdhury; P K De; S K Sharma

    2003-10-01

    Potentiodynamic polarization studies were carried out on virgin specimens of amorphous alloys Ti48Cu52, Ti50Cu50 and Ti60Ni40 in 0.5 M HNO3, 0.5 M H2SO4 and 0.5 M NaOH aqueous media at room temperature. The value of the corrosion current density (corr) was maximum for Ti48Cu52 alloy in all the three aqueous media as compared to the remaining two alloys. The value of corr for the alloy Ti48Cu52 was maximum (corr = 2.6 × 10-5 A/cm2) in 0.5 M H2SO4 and minimum (corr = 3.5 × 10-6 A/cm2) in 0.5 M NaOH aqueous solutions. In contrast, the alloy Ti60Ni40 exhibited the least corrosion current density in 0.5 M HNO3 (corr = 4.0 × 10-7 A/cm2) and in 0.5 M NaOH (corr = 5.5 × 10-7 A/cm2) aqueous media as compared to those for Ti–Cu alloys, while its value in 0.5 M H2SO4 was comparable to that for Ti50Cu50. It is suggested that the alloy Ti60Ni40 is more corrosion resistant than the alloys Ti48Cu52 and Ti50Cu50 in all the three aqueous media.

  15. Cytotoxicity test of 40, 50 and 60% citric acid as dentin conditioner by using MTT assay on culture cell line

    Christian Khoswanto

    2008-09-01

    Full Text Available Background: Open dentin is always covered by smear layer, therefore before restoration is performed, cavity or tooth which has been prepared should be clean from dirt. The researchers suggested that clean dentin surface would reach effective adhesion between resin and tooth structure, therefore dentin conditioner like citric acid was used to reach the condition. Even though citric acid is not strong acid but it can be very erosive to oral mucous. Several requirements should be fulfilled for dental product such as non toxic, non irritant, biocompatible and should not have negative effect against local, systemic or biological environment. Cytotoxicity test was apart of biomaterial evaluation and needed for standard screening. Purpose: This study was to know the cytotoxicity of 40, 50, 60% citric acid as dentin conditioner using MTT assay. Method: This study is an experimental research using the Post-Test Only Control Group Design. Six samples of each 40, 50 and 60% citric acid for citotoxicity test using MTT assay. The density of optic formazan indicated the number of living cells. All data were statistically analyzed by one way ANOVA. Result: The percentage of living cells in 40, 50 and 60% citric acid were 95.14%, 93.42% and 93.14%. Conclusion: Citric acid is non toxic and safe to be used as dentine conditioner.

  16. What can the 50 Hz market learn from the 60 Hz market to avoid generator and exciter failures and damage?

    Weigelt, Klaus [Brush Aftermarket, Ridderkerk (Netherlands). Global Engineering

    2012-07-01

    The economic significance of older turbo-sets lies primarily in their steadily increasing share of the total power generated worldwide. This is reflected by a trend in which plants originally built for base-load operation are increasingly being used for variable load or even continuous start-stop operation. This change occurred in the 60 Hz US market more than 25 years ago. The paper gives an overview about numerous solutions for refurbishment, life extension, retrofits and upgrades developed for generator rotors, stators and exciters. These are no prototype solutions, but solutions which already work reliably for the 60 Hz market for many years and which can be applied and adapted of the same problems of the 50 Hz market. (orig.)

  17. Neutron Cross section Covariances in the Resonance region: 50,53Cr, 54,57Fe and 60Ni

    Oblozinsky, P.; Cho,Y.-S.; Mattoon,C.M.; Mughabghab,S.F.

    2010-11-23

    We evaluated covariances in the neutron resonance region for capture and elastic scattering cross sections on minor structural materials, {sup 50,53}Cr, {sup 54,57}Fe and {sup 60}Ni. Use was made of the recently developed covariance formalism based on kernel approximation along with data in the Atlas of Neutron Resonances. Our results of most interest for advanced fuel cycle applications, elastic scattering cross section uncertainties at energies around 100 keV, are on the level of about 7-10%.

    2008-10-15

    The questions about the possible health impacts of electric and magnetic fields from industrial current with a 50-60 Hz frequency have led to a remarkable risk assessment approach carried out at the international scale. Pluri-disciplinary and regularly revised collective expertises (US, UK, Sweden, France, Canada, International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), World Health Organization..) have integrated the results of epidemiological studies and experiments on animals and biological material. The synthesis of these works is a reassuring consensus which led to the publication in June 2007 of the monograph no 238 of the 'Environmental Health Criteria' collection of the World Health Organization in Geneva.

    Full Text Available Os avanços tecnológicos têm aumentado o número de equipamentos elétricos e eletrônicos, seja nas residências ou mesmo no ambiente de trabalho, fazendo com que a população conviva com grande número de fontes de irradiação eletromagnética, com os mais diversos níveis de potência e freqüência. Por muitos anos, alguns cientistas e engenheiros acreditaram que o campo eletromagnético (CEM com freqüência extremamente baixa não pudesse causar efeitos e alterações significantes no material biológico. O objetivo deste trabalho é verificar os possíveis efeitos adversos dos CEMs em humanos e animais, que foram publicados nos últimos anos, através de uma revisão da literatura disponível em Medline, revistas nacionais e internacionais e catálogos de obras de referência na área dos CEM (50/60 Hz. Como resultado foi observado que o CEM (50/60 Hz é capaz de produzir diversos efeitos adversos em humanos e animais, como por exemplo: distúrbios na reprodução, doenças degenerativas, efeitos psiquiátricos e psicológicos, alterações citogenéticas, alterações no sistema cardiovascular, nervoso e neuroendócrino, bem como nos parâmetros biológicos e bioquímicos. Apesar de todas estas constatações e devido a muitas controvérsias entre vários autores, faz-se necessário um estudo mais específico e aprofundado sobre o assunto.The technologic development has increased the number of electric and electronic devices for household and work environment applications.

    Full Text Available Raising of the problem. In many regions is utilised housing, that age is more than half a century. According to the research materials of the analytical center of Ukrainian Cities Association there are 25,5 thousand houses built by first mass series project of large, block and brick buildings with a total area of 72 million M2 today in the state, rather those, that require reconstruction and modernization. In general, most of the housing stock of Ukraine is in a poor technical condition due to its deficient funding; it keeps the tendency of premature aging of the housing stock.One of the major problems of modern construction industry is the continuation of housing exploitation, in particular is it the building era of mass construction of 50-60-ies of XX century, called "Khrushchevki". According to the State Statistics Service of Ukraine the deterioration of residential buildings in Ukraine amounts to 47.2%, which makes us think of the immediate actions to occure this situation. The most acceptable way, at first viewe, seems the reconstruction of "Khrushchvki". However, the reconstruction is a complex problem that requires the construction industry solution due to the economic component, the social factor, the views of residents of these homes to create a technological and economical viable result. Analysis of publications. The problem of the "Khrushchevki" reconstruction is the subject of continual researches of leading builders of Ukraine. In the researchers' attention just as the technological problems [1 - 3], so economic components [4 - 6], in general, give an idea of the work scale required to overcome the impending crisis. The purpose of the article. Defining the main problems of exploatation of panel fivestory buildings of 50 - 60-ies twentieth century and their residents thoughts about existing inconvenience, as well as associated economic, technological and legal problems in the implementation of buildings reconstruction.

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available Prevention of falls aims to increase the strength of large groups of muscles, mainly in the lower limbs, as well as to improve gait, balance, and coordination parameters. Nordic walking (NW is a new type of walking training; the main purpose of NW is to involve the muscles that are not used during normal walking, which enables the performance of high intensity exercises at a relatively low level of perceived exertion. The article deals with the relevance of the problem of raising the health level and working capacity of mature and elderly-aged population. The importance of regular physical exercises as a universal means of satisfying the human body in motion has proved to be substantial. The research results in a positive impact of NW training on the functional status and health of women under the age of 50 - 60, the optimal structure of correctly graduated exercises during Nordic walking trainings in winter and snow-free periods. The quality of women’s life is determined and improved. NW is a form of physical activity which is recommended along with physiotherapy for the elderly to prevent musculoskeletal disorders, vascular diseases, cardiovascular diseases, thus improving people’s physical, and, hence, social welfare.

  2. Electric and magnetic fields with a frequency of 50-60 Hz: assessment of 20 years of research

    Lambrozo, J. [Electricite de France - Gaz de France, Paris (France)

    2001-07-01

    Since electricity is used everywhere, exposure to electromagnetic fields of extremely low frequency (50-60 Hz) is unavoidable in our daily life. The question of whether these electromagnetic fields could possibly have any biological or health effects has been a major environmental issue for more than 20 years. At high field strengths, biological effects such as nerve and cardio-stimulation through the induction of currents in the body have been noted. These biological effects have been used in the drafting of standards for public and professional exposure. However, it is the search for effects at low field levels that has been the focus of much research. The main results of this research can be summarised as follows: in vivo studies on whole animals have shown that there is no convincing evidence that electromagnetic fields cause cancer or birth defects, and despite some reduction in pineal and blood melatonin in rodents, studies on lambs, baboons and humans do not support such an effect of electromagnetic fields, while in vitro studies have shown that exposure to electromagnetic fields at usual residential levels (<100 {mu}T) does not produce any significant in vitro effects that could be replicated in independent studies. These results, correlated with the data provided by more recent epidemiological studies, do not show that exposure to electromagnetic fields at the usual residential exposure levels presents a human health hazard.

  3. Desorption of 137Cs from Brachythecium mildeanum moss using acid solutions with pH 4.60-6.50

    Čučulović, Ana; Veselinović, Dragan

    2015-12-01

    The desorption of 137Cs from the moss Brachythecium mildeanum (Schimp.) was performed using the following solutions: H2SO4 ( I), HNO3 ( II), H2SO4 + HNO3 ( III) with pH values of 4.60, 5.15, and 5.75, respectively, as well as distilled water (D) with pH 6.50. After five successive desorptions, each lasting 24 h, 20.5-37.6% 137Cs was desorbed from the moss using these solutions, while 30.7% of the starting content was desorbed using distilled water. The first desorption removed the highest percent of the original content of 137Cs in the moss (11.3-18.4%). This was determined by measuring 137Cs activity. If the current results are compared with those obtained earlier it may be concluded that 137Cs desorption from mosses is not species-dependent. The obtained results indicate the necessity of investigating the influence of acid rain, or rather, of H+ ions, on desorption of other ions from biological systems, i.e., the role of H+ ions in spreading other polluting compounds and thus producing secondary environmental pollution. From the results of this study it follows that acid rain will lead, through H+ ion action, to a similar increasing pollution of fallout waters with other ionic compounds which may not be present in the water before the contact with the plants and thus enable the pollution spreading. In the investigated system, the replacement of H+ ions from acid rains by more dangerous radioactive ions occured, increasing the concentration of the radioactive ions in the water, which demonstrates that the same process takes place in fallout water.

    2009-05-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Two malaria rapid diagnostic tests were evaluated in a travel clinic setting: the SD FK50 Malaria Ag Plasmodium falciparum test (a two-band test and the SD FK60 Malaria Ag P. falciparum/Pan test (a three-band test. Methods A panel of stored whole blood samples (n = 452 and n = 614 for FK50 and FK60, respectively from returned travellers was used. The reference method was microscopy with PCR in case of discordant results. Results For both tests, overall sensitivity for the detection of P. falciparum was 93.5%, reaching 97.6% and 100% at parasite densities above 100 and 1,000/μl respectively. Overall sensitivities for Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium ovale and Plasmodium malariae for the FK60 test were 87.5%, 76.3% and 45.2%, but they reached 92.6% and 90.5% for P. vivax and P. ovale at parasite densities above 500/μl. Specificities were above 95% for all species and both tests when corrected by PCR, with visible histidine-rich protein-2 lines for P. malariae (n = 3 and P. vivax and P. ovale (1 sample each. Line intensities were reproducible and correlated to parasite densities. The FK60 tests provided clues to estimate parasite densities for P. falciparum below or above 1,000/μl. Conclusion Both the FK50 and FK60 performed well for the diagnosis of P. falciparum in the present setting, and the FK60 for the diagnosis of P. vivax and P. ovale at parasite densities > 500/μl. The potential use of the FK60 as a semi-quantitative estimation of parasite density needs to be further explored.

    2012-04-01

    The isomeric-yield ratios of 109m,gPd and 115m,gCd were measured by the activation method with uncollimated bremsstrahlung beams of 50-, 60-, and 70-MeV generated from an electron linear accelerator at Pohang Accelerator Laboratory. The induced activities in the irradiated foils were measured by the high-resolution γ-ray spectrometric system consisting of a high-purity germanium detector and a multichannel analyzer. The obtained isomeric-yield ratios in the formation of 109m,gPd and 115m,gCd are compared with the corresponding values found in the other experiments and the calculated values based on the statistical model code TALYS. The present results for 109m,gPd and 115m,gCd in this energy region are the first measurement.

  12. Whole blood transcriptomics and urinary metabolomics to define adaptive biochemical pathways of high-intensity exercise in 50-60 year old masters athletes.

    Kamalika Mukherjee

    Full Text Available Exercise is beneficial for a variety of age-related disorders. However, the molecular mechanisms mediating the beneficial adaptations to exercise in older adults are not well understood. The aim of the current study was to utilize a dual approach to characterize the genetic and metabolic adaptive pathways altered by exercise in veteran athletes and age-matched untrained individuals. Two groups of 50-60 year old males: competitive cyclists (athletes, n = 9; VO2peak 59.1±5.2 ml·kg(-1·min(-1; peak aerobic power 383±39 W and untrained, minimally active individuals (controls, n = 8; VO2peak 35.9±9.7 ml·kg(-1·min(-1; peak aerobic power 230±57 W were examined. All participants completed an acute bout of submaximal endurance exercise, and blood and urine samples pre- and post-exercise were analyzed for gene expression and metabolic changes utilizing genome-wide DNA microarray analysis and NMR spectroscopy-based metabolomics, respectively. Our results indicate distinct differences in gene and metabolite expression involving energy metabolism, lipids, insulin signaling and cardiovascular function between the two groups. These findings may lead to new insights into beneficial signaling pathways of healthy aging and help identify surrogate markers for monitoring exercise and training load.

    The identification of the optimal administration schedule for an effective medical countermeasure is critical for the effective treatment of individuals exposed to potentially lethal doses of radiation. The efficacy of filgrastim (Neupogen®), a potential medical countermeasure, to improve survival when initiated at 48 h following total body irradiation in a non-human primate model of the hematopoietic syndrome of the acute radiation syndrome was investigated. Animals were exposed to total body irradiation, antero-posterior exposure, total midline tissue dose of 7.5 Gy, (target lethal dose 50/60) delivered at 0.80 Gy min, using linear accelerator-derived 6 MV photons. All animals were administered medical management. Following irradiation on day 0, filgrastim (10 μg kg d) or the control (5% dextrose in water) was administered subcutaneously daily through effect (absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1,000 cells μL for three consecutive days). The study (n = 80) was powered to demonstrate a 25% improvement in survival following the administration of filgrastim or control beginning at 48 ± 4 h post-irradiation. Survival analysis was conducted on the intention-to-treat population using a two-tailed null hypothesis at a 5% significance level. Filgrastim, initiated 48 h after irradiation, did not improve survival (2.5% increase, p = 0.8230). These data demonstrate that efficacy of a countermeasure to mitigate lethality in the hematopoietic syndrome of the acute radiation syndrome can be dependent on the interval between irradiation and administration of the medical countermeasure.

    A powder lot TLD-100 (LiF:Mg,Ti) in absorbed dose terms in water D{sub w} for the following radiation sources: {sup 60} Co, {sup 137} Cs and RX 50 and 250 k Vp is calibrated; to continuation is made a lineal interpolation of the TLD response in function of the effective energy of the sources to calibrate a source of {sup 192} Ir. The calibration of those fields in D{sub w} are carried out with aid of the Bragg-Gray cavity theory, the one which finds implicit in the following protocols: IAEA-TRS 398 for the {sup 60} Co and the AAPM TG61 for X Rays of 50 and 250 k Vp. Additionally the AAPM protocol TG43 to determine the D{sub w} in function of the kerma intensity S{sub k} in the case of the {sup 137} Cs is used. The calibration curves for the response of the TLD-100 R{sub TLD} vs D{sub w}, corresponding to each one of the sources already mentioned are constructed. The R{sub TLD} vs D{sub w} by least heavy square by means of a second order polynomial that corrects the supralineality of the response is adjusted. The curves are validated by lack of LOF adjustment and by the Anderson Darling normality test. Later the factors of sensitivity (F{sub s}) for the sources of {sup 192} Ir: Micro Selectron and Vari Source are interpolated, used respectively in the A and B hospitals for treatments of brachytherapy of high dose rate (HDR), the expanded uncertainties associated to the D{sub w} and F{sub s} are also determined. Finally, an acrylic phantom and a couple of capsules are already sent to the hospitals mentioned, to verify a nominal D{sub w} of 2 Gy, in a case an underestimate in 5.5% in the imparted D{sub w} and in other an overestimation in a range of -1.5 to -8.0% was obtained. The obtained results in this work establish the bases for the development of a national dosimetric quality control program for brachytherapy of HDR with sources of {sup 192} Ir. (Author)

    Full Text Available Using materials of the Russian periodicals the policy of European States toward the question of the Danube Principalities’ union and their political status in the second half of 50’s – 60’s of the XIX-th century was exposed. The attention was accentuated on the Romanian question that was the main component of the Eastern question and played the important role in French, British, Austrian and Russian diplomatic policy after the Eastern War of the 1853–1856. The position of different ideological and political Russian press’ movement (conservative, liberal, slavophile and radical concerning the formation of Romanian statement and the European diplomacy in this question was analyzed.

  20. Microfiltration of skim milk and modified skim milk using a 0.1-µm ceramic uniform transmembrane pressure system at temperatures of 50, 55, 60, and 65°C.

    Hurt, E E; Adams, M C; Barbano, D M

    2015-02-01

    Increasing the temperature of microfiltration (MF) to >50°C may allow for operation at higher fluxes and reduce the bacterial growth during MF. However, there is a concern that operating at higher temperatures could cause calcium phosphate precipitation that would lead to membrane fouling. Our objective was to determine the effect of operating a 0.1-µm ceramic uniform transmembrane pressure MF unit at temperatures of 50, 55, 60, and 65°C on membrane fouling and serum protein (SP) removal from skim milk with and without removal of low-molecular-weight soluble milk components by ultrafiltration (UF) before MF at a flux of 54kg/m(2) per hour. For each replicate, 1,000kg of pasteurized skim milk was split into 2 batches. One batch was ultrafiltered (with diafiltration) to remove an average of 89±2% of the lactose and a percentage of the soluble calcium and phosphorus. The retentate from UF was diluted back to the protein concentration of skim milk, creating the diluted UF retentate (DUR). On subsequent days, both the DUR and skim milk were run on the MF unit with the flux maintained at 54kg/m(2) per hour and a concentration factor of 3× and the system run in recycle mode. The temperature of MF was increased in 5°C steps from 50 to 65°C, with a 1-h stabilization period after each increase. During the run, transmembrane pressure was monitored and permeate and retentate samples were taken and analyzed to determine if any changes in SP, calcium, or phosphorus passage through the membrane occurred. Increasing temperature of MF from 50 to 65°C at a flux of 54kg/m(2) per hour did not produce a large increase in membrane fouling when using either skim milk or a DUR as the MF feed type as measured by changes in transmembrane pressure. Increasing the temperature to 65°C only caused a slight reduction in calcium concentration in the permeate (11±3%) that was similar between the 2MF feed types. Increasing processing temperature reduced the percentage of SP removal by the

  1. Acute cell death rate of vascular smooth muscle cells during or after short heating up to 20s ranging 50 to 60°C as a basic study of thermal angioplasty

    Shinozuka, Machiko; Shimazaki, Natsumi; Ogawa, Emiyu; Machida, Naoki; Arai, Tsunenori

    2014-02-01

    We studied the relations between the time history of smooth muscle cells (SMCs) death rate and heating condition in vitro to clarify cell death mechanism in heating angioplasty, in particular under the condition in which intimal hyperplasia growth had been prevented in vivo swine experiment. A flow heating system on the microscope stage was used for the SMCs death rate measurement during or after the heating. The cells were loaded step-heating by heated flow using a heater equipped in a Photo-thermo dynamic balloon. The heating temperature was set to 37, 50-60°C. The SMCs death rate was calculated by a division of PI stained cell number by Hoechst33342 stained cell number. The SMCs death rate increased 5-10% linearly during 20 s with the heating. The SMCs death rate increased with duration up to 15 min after 5 s heating. Because fragmented nuclei were observed from approximately 5 min after the heating, we defined that acute necrosis and late necrosis were corresponded to within 5 min after the heating and over 5 min after the heating, respectively. This late necrosis is probably corresponding to apoptosis. The ratio of necrotic interaction divided the acute necrosis rate by the late necrosis was calculated based on this consideration as 1.3 under the particular condition in which intimal hyperplasia growth was prevented in vivo previous porcine experiment. We think that necrotic interaction rate is larger than expected rate to obtain intimal hyperplasia suppression.

    The flux-weighted average cross-sections of (γ , xn) reactions on natZn induced by the bremsstrahlung end-point energies of 50, 55, 60, and 65 MeV have been determined by activation and off-line γ-ray spectrometric technique, using the 100 MeV electron linac at the Pohang Accelerator Laboratory (PAL), Pohang, Korea. The theoretical photon-induced reaction cross-sections of natZn as a function of photon energy were taken from TENDL-2014 nuclear data library based on TALYS 1.6 program. The flux-weighted average cross-sections were obtained from the literature data and the theoretical values of TENDL-2014 based on mono-energetic photon. The flux-weighted reaction cross-sections from the present work and literature data at different bremsstrahlung end-point energies are in good agreement with the theoretical values. It was found that the individual natZn(γ , xn) reaction cross-sections increase sharply from reaction threshold to certain values where the next reaction channel opens. There after it remains constant for a while, where the next reaction channel increases. Then it decreases slowly with increase of bremsstrahlung end-point energy due to opening of different reaction channels.

    Abraham, Daniel A; Haasch, Richard T.

    2017-01-01

    High-power lithium-ion batteries are rapidly replacing the nickel metal hydride batteries currently used for energy storage in hybrid electric vehicles. Widespread commercialization of these batteries for vehicular applications is, however, limited by calendar-life performance, thermal abuse characteristics, and cost. The Advanced Technology Development Program was established by the U.S. Department of Energy to address these limitations. An important objective of this program was the development and application of diagnostic tools that provide unique ways to investigate the phenomena that limit lithium-ion cell life, performance, and safety characteristics. This report introduces a set of six Surface Science Spectra xray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) comparison records of data collected from positive electrodes (cathode) harvested from cylindrically wound, 18650-type, 1 A h capacity cells. The cathodes included in this study are (1) fresh, (2) following three formation cycles, (3) following calendar-life test for 12 weeks at 40 C, 60% state-of-charge (SOC), (4) following calendar-life test for 8 weeks at 50 C, 60% SOC, (5) following calendar-life test for 8 weeks at 60 C, 60% SOC, and (6) following calendar-life test for 2 weeks at 70 C, 60% SOC.

  7. Electronic structures of the icosahedral C 60H 60 and C 60F 60 molecules

    Cioslowski, Jerzy

    1991-06-01

    Electronic structures of the icosahedral C 60H 60 hydrocarbon and its perfluoro analog, C 60F 60, are examined at the HF/4-31G and HF/6-31G** levels. The calculated CC bond lengths are as large as 1.57 Å in C 60H 60 and 1.63 Å in C 60F 60. The bond lengthening is attributed to the HH and FF steric interactions rather than to rehybridization effects. Topological analysis of the electron densities reveals the presence of curve CC bond paths. In addition, FF bond paths are found in C 60F 60 indicating strong non-bonded interaction between the fluorine atoms. The same conclusion is reached from the calculated energy of the isodesmic transfluorination reaction involving the C 2H 6, C 2F 6, C 60H 60, and C 60F 60 molecules.

    Objective To observe the therapeutic effect of acupuncture combined with medication for perimenopausal insomnia and its effect on the related neurotransmitters. Methods Totally 140 perimenopausal insomnia patients of non-interaction of the heart and kidney syndrome were randomized into the acupuncture group of 45 cases, Chinese medication group of 45 cases and acupuncture combined with medication group of 50 cases. The Chinese medication group was given Yishen Qingxin Decoction (decoction to boost the kidney and clear the heart) one dosage daily. The acupuncture group was given electro-acupuncture on Anmian (EX-HN) points, Sishencong (EX-HN1), Shenmen (HT7), Sanyinjiao (SP6), Shenmai (BL62) and Zhaohai (KI6) every other day. The acupuncture combined with medication group was given the combo therapy. The treatment course lasted for 4 weeks. Four courses later, the therapeutic effect was analyzed according to Kupperman Scale and the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Meanwhile, serum sex hormones, dopamine (DA), norepinephrine (NE), 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) and γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) were detected. Results The total effective rate of the acupuncture combined with medication group was 74.0% , which was superior to 66. 7% of the Chinese medication group and 62.2% of the acupuncture group iP(0. 05). There was no significant difference between the Chinese medication group and the acupuncture group in the total effective rate (P>0. 05). After treatment, the factor and total scores in Kupperman Scale and PSQI in all groups were significantly decreased (P0. 05). The differences of monoamine neurotransmitters between pretreatment and after treatment were statistically significant in all groups (P<0. 05). After treatment, the differences in DA and NE was statistically significant between the acupuncture group and the acupuncture combined with medication group (P<0. 05). The differences in DA, NE and 5-HT was statistically

    To help solve the traceability and quality control dosimetric problems for the users of {sup 192} Ir sources in the Mexican Republic, the Secondary Standard Dosimetric Laboratory at ININ to calibrated a batch of powder TLD- 100 (LiF: Mg,Ti) in terms of absorbed dose to water D{sub w} for the following radiation sources: {sup 60} Co, {sup 137C}s and RX 250 and 50 k Vp. Later on, the calibration is interpolated to obtain the {sup 192} Ir. The calibration radiation field is carried out with the following protocols: For the {sup 60} Co, IAEA TRS 398 protocol employing a secondary standard Farmer chamber PTW N30013, calibrated on D{sub w} at the NRC (Canada). For {sup 137} Cs the AAPM TG 43 protocol is used, in terms of air kerma strength S{sub k} determined by the air kerma K{sub a}, measured with a secondary standard chamber type thimble NE2611 traceable to the NIST (USA). For Rays X 250 and 50 k Vp, the protocol AAPM TG 61 using a tertiary standard Farmer chamber PTW 30001, with traceability to the LCIE (France) on air kerma K{sub a}. The calibration curves are built for the TLD response R{sub TLD} vs D{sub w}, they are fitted by means of a least squares fit technique with a second degree polynomial that corrects the supra linearity response. The curves are validated by the lack of fit test, and the Anderson Darling normality test. Later on, the sensibility factors are interpolated for the sources of {sup 192} Ir: Micro Selectron and Vari Source. Two capsules are sent to two hospitals to verify a nominal D{sub w} = 2 Gy, in the first one an underestimate of the D{sub w} is obtained, and in other one an overestimation is presented. Finally, the expanded uncertainty associated to D{sub w} and the F{sub s} are calculated. (Author)

  16. Lubrication of Nitinol 60

    Pepper, Stephen V.; DellaCorte, Christopher; Glennon, Glenn

    2010-01-01

    The mechanical properties of Nitinol 60, 60 wt% Ni, 40 wt% Ti (55 at.% Ni, 45 at.% Ti) are sufficiently attractive to warrant its consideration as a lubricated triboelement. Triboelements are always run lubricated. The ability to lubricate Nitinol 60 by the oils usually used on spacecraft mechanisms--Pennzane 2001A, Krytox 143AC and Castrol 815Z--was experimentally determined. These oils were run in the boundary lubrication regime for Nitinol 60 balls running against Nitinol 60 counterfaces in the vacuum spiral orbit tribometer. Test results consisting of the coefficient of friction versus time (friction traces) and relative degradation rates of the oils are presented. Contrary to the inability to successfully lubricate other metal alloys with high titanium content, it was found that Nitinol 60 is able to be lubricated by these oils. Overall, the results presented here indicate that Nitinol 60 is a credible candidate material for bearing applications.

  20. Cobalt-60 Container Scanner

    1999-01-01

    This paper presents a special container scanner in which the radiation source is a conventional radiography 60Co projector of (100-300)×3 .7×1010Bq. With a specia l sensitive array detector, invented by Institute of Nuclear Energy Technology ( INET) of Tsinghua University and other technical innovations, t he characteristics of the 60Co scanner qualify it for use in c ontainer insp ection. Its contrast indicator (CI) and image quality indicator (IQI) for 10 0 mm steel are equal to 0.7% and 2.5%, respectively, and the steel penetration ( SP) is about 240 mm. The 60Co container scanner is much more ec onomical and more reliable than those scanners using an accelerator source. Also, its penetr ation ability is much better than that of an X-ray machine scanner. This paper p resents the system design, the main difficulties and their technical solutions, the inspection characteristics and the special features of the 60Co sc anner.

    2013-06-01

    This experimental research was aimed to establish an optimum system of enucleation, purification and identification for preparing the cytoplasts of suspension culture cells in order to undertake cell recombination. Human leukemia HL-60 cells in suspension culture were purified by 42% Percoll density gradient centrifugation and low-speed centrifugation at 1 500r/min, respectively. The purified HL-60 cells were treated with cytochalasin B (CB) alone or combined with colcchicine and enucleated by isopycnic gradient centrifugation on 50% Percoll at 25 degrees C and 34 degrees C, respectively. Cytoplasts made from HL-60 cells were purified through gradient centrifugation by 37%, 38% and 40% Percoll, respectively. The final cytoplasts were identified by Wright-Giemsa staining and 4,6-diamidino-2-phenylidole dihydrochloride (DAPI)/5, 6-carboxyflu-orescein diacetate succinimidyl ester (CFSE) double-staining. The phenotype and mitochondrial membrane potential of HL-60 cytoplasts were analyzed by flow cytometry. The results indicated that the enucleation ratio of HL-60 cells induced by CB combined with colcchicine was up to 91. 98% +/-4. 29%, which was significantly higher than that in CB alone group (74. 95% +/- 3. 02%)(PHL-60 cytoplasts had no significant change, and the activity of the cytoplasts was above 80% within 12h. It is concluded that enucleation throuth density gradient centrifugation on 50% Percoll mediated by CB combined with colcchicine, 38%Percoll of purification followed by DAPI/CFSE double labeling and MMP detection is an optimum scheme for preparation and identification of cytoplast from suspension culture cells.

  1. C$_{60}$ in Photodissociation Regions

    Castellanos, Pablo; Sheffer, Yaron; Wolfire, Mark G; Tielens, Alexander G G M

    2014-01-01

    Recent studies have confirmed the presence of buckminsterfullerene (C$_{60}$) in different interstellar and circumstellar environments. However, several aspects regarding C$_{60}$ in space are not well understood yet, such as the formation and excitation processes, and the connection between C$_{60}$ and other carbonaceous compounds in the interstellar medium, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). In this paper we study several photodissociation regions (PDRs) where C$_{60}$ and PAHs are detected and the local physical conditions are reasonably well constrained, to provide observational insights into these questions. C$_{60}$ is found to emit in PDRs where the dust is cool ($T_d = 20-40$ K) and even in PDRs with cool stars. These results exclude the possibility for C$_{60}$ to be locked in grains at thermal equilibrium in these environments. We observe that PAH and C$_{60}$ emission are spatially uncorrelated and that C$_{60}$ is present in PDRs where the physical conditions (in terms of radi...

  5. Cobalt60 plaques in recurrent retinoblastoma

    Fass, D.; McCormick, B.; Abramson, D.; Ellsworth, R. (Department of Radiation Oncology, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, NY, NY (USA))

    1991-08-01

    Cobalt60 plaque irradiation is one treatment option for patients with recurrent retinoblastoma following conventional external beam irradiation (ERT). Tumorocidal doses can be delivered without excessive risk of normal tissue injury. In patients not considered candidates for xenon arc or cryotherapy, 60Co is an alternative to enucleation. Between 1968 and 1987, 85 patients were treated with 60Co plaques, 72 of whom had failed prior ERT. Age at diagnosis ranged from 1 week to 4 years. There are 37 males and 35 females. Seventy-one patients had bilateral disease and one had unilateral. Three patients had both eyes plaqued. Prior ERT ranged from 30 to 70 Gy (mean 4200 Gy). Time from initial therapy to failure ranged from 13 to 60 months. Cobalt plaques of 10 mm, 15 mm, or 10 {times} 15 mm were used depending on tumor size and location. Dose prescribed to the apex of the tumor ranged from 30 to 50 Gy (median 40 Gy) given over 3 to 8 days. Twelve patients had two plaque applications; three patients had three plaque applications. All patients were followed with routine ophthalmoscopic examinations. Follow-up ranged from 2 to 22 years (mean 8.7). Seven patients died of metastatic disease; 10 patients developed non-ocular second tumors. Thirty patients required enucleation. Twenty-two patients had clear tumor progression, two patients had radiation complications, and six patients had a combination of tumor growth and complications. Cobalt60 can salvage eyes in retinoblastoma patients failing ERT. Currently, the authors are using I125 in an attempt to spare normal ocular tissue and reduce subsequent complications.

    2003-01-01

    Aim To study the effect of 8-chloroadenosine (8-CA)on undifferentiatied HL-60 cell line. Methods The IC50 of cancer cell proliferation was determined using a microculture plate reader at 570 nm (MTT) and 540 nm (SRB).Morphology of HL-60 cells was observed under a scanning electron microscope and a transmission electron microscope. The differentiation of HL-60 cells was examined by nitro blue tetrazolium reduction (NBT) and acid phosphatase assay. The cycle of HL-60 cells was analyzed by flow cytometry. Results 8-CA inhibited proliferation of eight human cancer cell lines.The IC50 ranked in the following order; KB (0.05 μmol·L-1 ) < HL-60 (0.25 μmol·L-1) < Bel-7402 (0.56μmol·L-1 )< MCF-7 (0.65μmol·L-1) < HCT (0.79 μmol·L-1) < HeLa (0.89μmol·L-1) < BGC-823 ( 1.149μmol·L-1) 50μmol·L-1). The scanning and transmission electron microscopy showed that the microvilli of HL-60 cell surface shortened, and the shape of HL-60 cells nuclei changed to kidney-shaped, horse shoe-shaped and bilob ated after treatment with 8-CA. Meanwhile, 8-CA promoted NBT reduction and increased activity of acid phosphatase in HL-60 ceils in a time and concentration-dependent manner. Flow cytometry analysis indicated that 8-CA induced an appreciable increase of the cell population in G1 phase with a marked reduction in S phase. Conclusion 8-CA can induce differentiation of HL-60 cells and block the cells at G1 phase, thus inhibiting proliferation of HL-60 cells.

  9. What is C60. C60 no shotai wa

    Osawa, E. (Toyohashi University of Technology, Aichi (Japan))

    1993-03-25

    This paper elucidates what C60 really is. C60(1) is a carbon cluster of a special structure with Cs bonded solidly, and is a molecule chemically. Sixty Sp[sup 2] mixed carbon atoms are distributed evenly on a sphere with a radius of 7[angstrom]. Molecules in a crystal are of nearly perfect sphere, with small inter-molecular contact and weak binding force, and spinning at more than one billion rotations per second. C60 is a carbon's fourth allotrope. Three types of modification have been known to date, including the rugby ball shaped fullerene. Fullerene has been studied actively resulting in successive new reports. It is manufactured basically using the Kraetchmer's resistive heating method at a yield of approximately 10%. A plasma discharge process and an improved laser irradiation process can raise the yield to as high as 20% or more. Industrial application of C60 is within reach. Developmental researches are being moved forward by private corporations in Japan. Its application may cover wide areas, including electric conductors, semiconductors and the like. Elucidation of its production mechanisms has been waited for, together with solving a problem of reducing C60 reagent price. 45 refs., 3 figs.

  10. Reading with a simulated 60-channel implant

    Full Text Available First generation retinal prostheses containing 50-60 electrodes are currently in clinical trials. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the theoretical upper limit (best possible reading performance attainable with a state-of-the-art 60-channel retinal implant and to find the optimum viewing conditions for the task. Four normal volunteers performed full-page text reading tasks with a low resolution, 60-pixel viewing window that was stabilized in the central visual field. Two parameters were systematically varied: (1 spatial resolution (image magnification and (2 the orientation of the rectangular viewing window. Performance was measured in terms of reading accuracy (% of correctly read words and reading rates (words/min. Maximum reading performances were reached at spatial resolutions between 3.6 and 6 pixels/char. Performance declined outside this range for all subjects. In optimum viewing conditions (4.5 pixels/char, subjects achieved almost perfect reading accuracy and mean reading rates of 26 words/min for the vertical viewing window and of 34 words/min for the horizontal viewing window. These results suggest that, theoretically, some reading abilities can be restored with actual state-of-the-art retinal implant prototypes if image magnification is within an optimum range. Future retinal implants providing higher pixel resolutions, thus allowing for a wider visual span might allow faster reading rates.

  11. Live iron-60 in the early solar system.

    Shukolyukov, A; Lugmair, G W

    1993-02-19

    Isotopic analyses of nickel in samples from the differentiated meteorite Chervony Kut revealed the presence of relative excesses of (60)Ni ranging from 2.4 up to 50 parts per 10(4). These isotopic excesses are from the decay of the now extinct short-lived nuclide (60)Fe and provide clear evidence for the existence of (60)Fe over large scales in the early solar system. Not only was (60)Fe present at the time of melting and differentiation (that is, Fe-Ni fractionation) of the parent body of Chervony Kut but also later at the time when basaltic magma solidified at or near the surface of the planetesimal. The inferred abundance of (60)Fe suggests that its decay alone could have provided sufficient heat to melt small (diameters of several hundred kilometers) planetary bodies shortly after their accretion.

    The timescales of accretion, core formation, and magmatic differentiation in planetary bodies can be constrained using extinct radionuclide systems. Experiments have shown that Ni becomes more siderophile with decreasing pressure, which is reflected in the progressively higher Fe/Ni ratios in the mantles of Earth, Mars and Vesta. Mars formed rapidly and its mantle has a high Fe/Ni ratio, so the 60Fe-60Ni decay system (t1/2=2.62 Myr) is well suited to establish the timescale of core formation in this object. We report new measurements of 60Ni/58Ni ratios in bulk SNC/martian (Shergotty-Nakhla-Chassigny) meteorites and chondrites. The difference in {\\epsilon}60Ni values between SNC meteorites and the building blocks of Mars assumed to be chondritic (55 % ordinary chondrites +45% enstatite chondrites) is +0.028+/-0.023 (95% confidence interval). Using a model of growth of planetary embryo, this translates into a time for Mars to have reached ~44 % of its present size of 1.9(-0.8)(+1.7) Myr with a strict lower lim...

    The baseline bunch spacing for LHC high luminosity proton-proton operation after LS3 is 25 ns to maximize the integrated luminosity while keeping the pile-up low. The success of this mode of operation is not guaranteed. Electron cloud, UFOs, long-range beambeam, heating and other effects might make 25 ns operation in the LHC and/or the injectors difficult. This talk will review possible showstoppers in the LHC and injectors for 25 ns operation and discuss possible remedies. An alternative would be re-considering 50 ns operation. An estimate of the 50 ns performance will be given. The question of whether a different upgrade path would have to be chosen in case of 50 ns operation will also be addressed.

  4. Guidelines for accurate EC50/IC50 estimation.

    Sebaugh, J L

    2011-01-01

    This article provides minimum requirements for having confidence in the accuracy of EC50/IC50 estimates. Two definitions of EC50/IC50s are considered: relative and absolute. The relative EC50/IC50 is the parameter c in the 4-parameter logistic model and is the concentration corresponding to a response midway between the estimates of the lower and upper plateaus. The absolute EC50/IC50 is the response corresponding to the 50% control (the mean of the 0% and 100% assay controls). The guidelines first describe how to decide whether to use the relative EC50/IC50 or the absolute EC50/IC50. Assays for which there is no stable 100% control must use the relative EC50/IC50. Assays having a stable 100% control but for which there may be more than 5% error in the estimate of the 50% control mean should use the relative EC50/IC50. Assays that can be demonstrated to produce an accurate and stable 100% control and less than 5% error in the estimate of the 50% control mean may gain efficiency as well as accuracy by using the absolute EC50/IC50. Next, the guidelines provide rules for deciding when the EC50/IC50 estimates are reportable. The relative EC50/IC50 should only be used if there are at least two assay concentrations beyond the lower and upper bend points. The absolute EC50/IC50 should only be used if there are at least two assay concentrations whose predicted response is less than 50% and two whose predicted response is greater than 50%. A wide range of typical assay conditions are considered in the development of the guidelines.

    Effects of Cu underlayer on the structure of Fe50 Mn50 films were studied. Samples with a structure of Fe50 Mn50 (200 nm)/Cu(tCu) were prepared by magnetron sputtering on thermally oxidized silicon substrates at room temperature. The thickness of Cu underlayer varied from 0 to 60 nm in the intervals of 10 nm. High-vacuum annealing treatments, at different temperatures of 200, 300 and 400 ℃ for 1 h, respectively, on the Fe50 Mn50 (200 nm)/Cu(20 nm) thin films were performed. The surface morphologies and textures of the samples were measured by field emission scan electronic microscope (FE-SEM) and X-ray diffraction(XRD). Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) and Auger electron spectroscopy(AES) were used to analyze the compositional distribution. It is found that Cu underlayer has an obvious induce effect on (111) orientation of Fe50 Mn50 thin films. The induce effects of Cu on (111) orientation of Fe50 Mn50 changed with the increase of Cu layer thickness and the best effect was obtained at the Cu layer thickness of 20 nm. High-vacuum annealing treatments cause the migration of Mn atoms towards surface of the film and interface between Cu layer and substrate. With the increasing annealing temperature, migration of Mn atoms is more obvious, which leads to a Fe-riched Fe-Mn alloy film.

    Full Text Available "n  "nBackground and the purpose of the study: Gnidilatimonoein (Gn, a new diterpene ester from Daphne mucronata, possesses strong anti-metastasis and anti-tumor activities. In this study, its apoptosis and differentiation capabilities were evaluated by using the leukemia HL-60 cell line. "nMaterial and methods: Cell prolifaration inhibition was estimated by MTT assay. The occurrence of apoptosis was evaluated by EtBr/AO double staining technique, cell cycle analyses and detection of apoptotic cells by Annexin V-FITC and propodium iodide (PI. Differentiation of the cells was determined by NBT reduction assay and the expression of specific cell surface markers such as CD14 and CD11b, were analyzed by flow cytometry.   "nResults: The drug decreased the growth of the cells dose- and time- dependently and the IC50 was found to be 1.3 µM. Our data suggested that Gn induced both monocytic differentiation  and apoptosis among HL-60 cells. In addition, cell cycle analyses showed an increase in G1 phase population by 24 hrs, which was gradually replaced by Sub-G1 cell population (apoptotic cells by 72 hrs. "nConclusion: Based on these data, the Gn-treated HL-60 cells displayed differentiation-dependent apoptosis. Thus, Gn might be a good candidate for differentiation therapy of leukemia, pending full biological evaluation of the compound among the wide array of leukemia cells.

    2005-01-01

    Self-assembled monolayers of novel C60 derivative, N-3-γ-pyridyl Aza[60]fulleroid (C60Py), on Au(111) were studied by a scanning tunneling microscope under ultrahigh vacuum (UHV). C60Py molecules were assembled on Au (111) via pyridyl nitrogen-Au interaction. The sole assembly of C60Py molecules on Au (111) only exhibited randoml aggregation of C60Py even the films were annealed at 50 and 105℃. By co-assembling with benzyl mercaptan (BM), the C60Py- BM films showed highly dense aggregation, but C60Py assemblies still had disordered structure. After the co-assembled C60Py-BM films were annealed at 50℃, BM molecules were partially desorbed, but the assembly of C60Py remained without obvious change. After the co-assembled C60Py-BM films were further annealed at 105℃, the C60Py monolayers with ordered structure were obtained, while the BM molecules were nearly thoroughly desorbed from the surface. Here, the BM molecules play a key role as a surfactant in the formation of the ordered C60Py monolayer.

    The half-life of the neutron-rich nuclide, $^{60}\\text{Fe}$ has been in dispute in recent years. A measurement in 2009 published a value of $(2.62 \\pm 0.04)\\times10^{6}$ years, almost twice that of the previously accepted value from 1984 of $(1.49 \\pm 0.27)\\times10^{6}$ years. This longer half-life was confirmed in 2015 by a new measurement, resulting in a value of $(2.50 \\pm 0.12)\\times10^{6}$ years. All three half-life measurements used the grow-in of the $\\gamma$-ray lines in $^{60}\\text{Ni}$ from the decay of the ground state of $^{60\\text{g}}\\text{Co}$ (t$_{1/2}$=5.27 years) to determine the activity of a sample with a known number of $^{60}\\text{Fe}$ atoms. In contrast, the work presented here measured the $^{60}\\text{Fe}$ activity directly with the 58.6 keV $\\gamma$-ray line from the short-lived isomeric state of $^{60\\text{m}}\\text{Co}$ (t$_{1/2}$=10.5 minutes), thus being independent of any possible contamination from long-lived $^{60\\text{g}}\\text{Co}$.

    As you are aware, CERN will be celebrating its 60th birthday in 2014. To mark the event, next year will be filled with exciting events... of which there will be a taster in the next issue of the Bulletin.   In the meantime, we are pleased to present the official logo for this important anniversary: created by the Graphic Design Service team, it elegantly combines the curves of the numbers 6 and 0 to mirror the shape of our accelerator chain, and in doing so pays homage to the technological prowess of CERN’s installations. The overlap of the 6 and the 0 also symbolises collaboration between countries, professions and people, which is one of the Organization’s fundamental values. The slightly tilted perspective of the logo suggests the geographical layout of CERN’s facilities as well as the dynamism of a forward-looking Laboratory. There’s an obvious nod to the CERN logo, but the new logo differs in the way it evokes a more festive spirit: formed of a loo...

  10. Resonances production from the NA60 experiment

    De Falco A.

    2012-11-01

    Full Text Available The NA60 experiment at the CERN SPS has studied light vector meson production in In-In collisions at 158A GeV. The ϕ meson was detected via both the K+K− and the μ+μ− decay channels. The yields and inverse slope parameters of the mT spectra observed in the two channels are compatible within errors, different from the large discrepancies seen in Pb-Pb collisions between the hadronic (NA49 and dimuon (NA50 decay channels. In the invariant mass region 0.2 1 GeV, the excess is found to be prompt, with remarkable differences with respect to the Drell-Yan process. The Teff slope parameter, extracted from the transverse mass spectra, shows a rise with mass up to the ρ, followed by a sudden decline for higher masses. The former is consistent with radial flow of a hadronic source, while the latter suggests a dominantly partonic emission source.

Within 50 years it has created dozens of microdistricts in Irkutsk and other towns of the region, millions of square meters of housing, hundreds of cultural, educational, commercial and personal service facilities. And a number of outstanding architectural and town-planning works, which have received professional, public and national recognition.They were created by several generations of highly qualified specialists, architects and engineers. While working simultaneously on a dozen of projects, they taught and brought up young specialists, sharing their knowledge and experience in designing for a changeable climate, high seismicity and a historical city. The Institute became a source of manpower: together with design as its main activity, it also offered internship and advanced training. Now this manpower, graduates from the Institute, work at the best design companies of the city.The authors of this issue are representatives of several generations of the Institute’s staff. Their recollections and personal photo records made it possible to chronologize some episodes from Irkutskgrazhdanproject everyday life and to feel the atmosphere of creativity and intelligence.The history of the Institute is roughly divided into periods. Neither this history nor its description in the issue has strict boundaries. However, the role of certain personalities in this history is so great that one may say that it was they who made Irkutskgrazhdanproject so that we are proud of it, we love it and devote many years and decades of our lives to it.

    Stöhr, Meike; Wagner, Thorsten; Gabriel, Markus; Weyers, Bastian; Möller, Rolf

    2001-01-01

    The binary molecular system of C-60 and copper phthalocyanine(CuPc) molecules has been investigated by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) at room temperature and at 50 K. As substrate Au(111) was chosen. When C-60 and CuPc molecules are sequentially deposited, it is found that well-ordered domains

  14. An Economic Analysis of Electron Accelerators and Cobalt-60 for Irradiating Food

    Morrison, Rosanna Mentzer

    1989-01-01

    Average costs per pound of irradiating food are similar for the electron accelerator and cobalt-60 irradiators analyzed in this study, but initial investment costs can vary by $1 million. Irradiation costs range from 0.5 to 7 cents per pound and decrease as annual volumes treated increase. Cobalt-60 is less expensive than electron beams for annual volumes below 50 million pounds. For radiation source requirements above the equivalent of 1 million curies of cobalt-60, electron beams are more e...

  9. 50th IMO - 50 Years of International Mathematical Olympiads

    Gronau, Hans-Dietrich; Schleicher, Dierk

    2011-01-01

    In July 2009 Germany hosted the 50th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO). For the very first time the number of participating countries exceeded 100, with 104 countries from all continents. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the IMO provides an ideal opportunity to look back over the past five decades and to review its development to become a worldwide event. This book is a report about the 50th IMO as well as the IMO history. A lot of data about all the 50 IMOs are included. We list the most successful contestants, the results of the 50 Olympiads and the 112 countries that have ever ta

  12. Data mining the NCI60 to predict generalized cytotoxicity.

    Lee, Adam C; Shedden, Kerby; Rosania, Gustavo R; Crippen, Gordon M

    2008-07-01

    Elimination of cytotoxic compounds in the early and later stages of drug discovery can help reduce the costs of research and development. Through the application of principal components analysis (PCA), we were able to data mine and prove that approximately 89% of the total log GI 50 variance is due to the nonspecific cytotoxic nature of substances. Furthermore, PCA led to the identification of groups of structurally unrelated substances showing very specific toxicity profiles, such as a set of 45 substances toxic only to the Leukemia_SR cancer cell line. In an effort to predict nonspecific cytotoxicity on the basis of the mean log GI 50, we created a decision tree using MACCS keys that can correctly classify over 83% of the substances as cytotoxic/noncytotoxic in silico, on the basis of the cutoff of mean log GI 50 = -5.0. Finally, we have established a linear model using least-squares in which nine of the 59 available NCI60 cancer cell lines can be used to predict the mean log GI 50. The model has R (2) = 0.99 and a root-mean-square deviation between the observed and calculated mean log GI 50 (RMSE) = 0.09. Our predictive models can be applied to flag generally cytotoxic molecules in virtual and real chemical libraries, thus saving time and effort.

  13. Raman Laser Polymerization of C60 Nanowhiskers

    Ryoei Kato

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Photopolymerization of C60 nanowhiskers (C60NWs was investigated by using a Raman spectrometer in air at room temperature, since the polymerized C60NWs are expected to exhibit a high mechanical strength and a thermal stability. Short C60NWs with a mean length of 4.4 μm were synthesized by LLIP method (liquid-liquid interfacial precipitation method. The Ag(2 peak of C60NWs shifted to the lower wavenumbers with increasing the laser beam energy dose, and an energy dose more than about 1520 J/mm2 was found necessary to obtain the photopolymerized C60NWs. However, excessive energy doses at high-power densities increased the sample temperature and lead to the thermal decomposition of polymerized C60 molecules.

  14. Metal-insulator transition in AC{sub 60}:RbC{sub 60} and KC{sub 60}

    Khazeni, K.; Crespi, V.H.; Hone, J.; Zettl, A.; Cohen, M.L. [Department of Physics, University of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, California 94720 (United States)]|[Materials Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, Berkeley, California 94720 (United States)

    1997-09-01

    At zero pressure polymerized RbC{sub 60} is an insulator, whereas polymerized KC{sub 60} is a metal with a slight low-temperature resistive upturn. We report measurements of the resistivity of RbC{sub 60} under pressure, finding a hysteretic resistive transition in RbC{sub 60} near 200 K at 5 kbar, at which point the material transforms from insulator to metal. Correcting the resistivity to constant volume, both materials are metallic below the transition with a common low-temperature resistive upturn which is suppressed under compression. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}

  15. Semiconductor nanocrystals photosensitize C60 crystals.

    Biebersdorf, Andreas; Dietmüller, Roland; Susha, Andrei S; Rogach, Andrey L; Poznyak, Sergey K; Talapin, Dmitri V; Weller, Horst; Klar, Thomas A; Feldmann, Jochen

    2006-07-01

    Semiconductor nanocrystals (SCNCs) made of CdSe, CdTe, and InP are used to photosensitize needlelike C(60) crystals. The photocurrent is increased by up to 3 orders of magnitude as compared with C(60) crystals without SCNCs. The photocurrent spectrum can be tuned precisely by the SCNC size and material, rendering the SCNC-functionalized C(60) crystals an excellent material for spectrally tuneable photodetectors. We explain the increased photocurrent as a result of photoexcited electrons transferring from the SCNCs to the C(60) crystals and causing photoconductivity, while the complementary holes remain trapped in the SCNCs.

  16. Development of a trans-admittance mammography (TAM) using 60×60 electrode array

    Zhao, Mingkang; Liu, Qin; In Oh, Tong; Woo, Eung Je; Seo, Jin Keun

    2010-04-01

    We have developed a trans-admittance mammography (TAM) system as a supplementary or alternative method of the X-ray mammography to diagnose the breast cancer. Mechanical structure of the system is similar to the X-ray mammography with the breast placed between two plates. The pair of plates is movable to accommodate breasts with different sizes and rotatable to provide multiple images with different projection angles. Without using ionizing radiation, it acquires a projection image of tissue admittivity values. One plate is a flat solid electrode where we apply a constant sinusoidal voltage with a variable frequency. The other is equipped with 60×60 array of current-sensing electrodes, of which potentials are kept at the signal reference level. The electrode array is connected to six switching modules and each module routes current signals from 600 electrodes to two ammeter modules. Each ammeter module includes six channels of ammeters and each one of them comprises an independent current-to-voltage converter, voltage amplifier, ADC and digital phase-sensitive demodulator. Each ammeter sequentially measures exit currents from 50 electrodes chosen by the corresponding switching module. An FPGA controls six ammeters to collect real- and imaginary-parts of trans-admittance data from 300 electrodes. A separate FPGA arbitrates data and command exchanges between a DSP-based main controller and ammeter modules. It also generates a sinusoidal voltage signal to be applied to the breast. All the 3600 complex current data from 12 ammeter modules are transferred to the main controller, which is interfaced to a PC through an isolated USB. The system is provided with a program to display real- and imaginary-parts of measured trans-admittance maps. The measured maps at multiple frequencies are incorporated into a frequency-difference anomaly detection algorithm. In this paper, we describe the design and construction of the system.

  17. ELECTRON-CAPTURE SUPERNOVAE AS SOURCES OF {sup 60}Fe

    Wanajo, Shinya [National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, 2-21-1 Osawa, Mitaka, Tokyo 181-8588 (Japan); Janka, Hans-Thomas; Mueller, Bernhard, E-mail: shinya.wanajo@nao.ac.jp [Max-Planck-Institut fuer Astrophysik, Karl-Schwarzschild-Str. 1, D-85748 Garching (Germany)

    2013-09-01

    We investigate the nucleosynthesis of the radionuclide {sup 60}Fe in electron-capture supernovae (ECSNe). The nucleosynthetic results are based on a self-consistent, two-dimensional simulation of an ECSN as well as models in which the densities are systematically increased by some factors (low-entropy models). {sup 60}Fe is found to be appreciably made in neutron-rich ejecta during the nuclear quasi-equilibrium phase with greater amounts being produced in the lower-entropy models. Our results, combining them with the yields of core-collapse supernovae in the literature, suggest that ECSNe account for at least 4%-30% of live {sup 60}Fe in the Milky Way. ECSNe co-produce neutron-rich isotopes, {sup 48}Ca, {sup 50}Ti, {sup 54}Cr, some light trans-iron elements, and possibly weak r-process elements including some radionuclides such as {sup 93}Zr, {sup 99}Tc, and {sup 107}Pd, whose association with {sup 60}Fe might have been imprinted in primitive meteorites or in the deep ocean crust on the Earth.

  18. Fullerene C60 Penetration into Leukemic Cells and Its Photoinduced Cytotoxic Effects

    Franskevych, D.; Palyvoda, K.; Petukhov, D.; Prylutska, S.; Grynyuk, I.; Schuetze, C.; Drobot, L.; Matyshevska, O.; Ritter, U.

    2017-01-01

    Fullerene C60 as a representative of carbon nanocompounds is suggested to be promising agent for application in photodynamic therapy due to its unique physicochemical properties. The goal of this study was to estimate the accumulation of fullerene C60 in leukemic cells and to investigate its phototoxic effect on parental and resistant to cisplatin leukemic cells. Stable homogeneous water colloid solution of pristine C60 with average 50-nm diameter of nanoparticles was used in experiments. Fluorescent labeled C60 was synthesized by covalent conjugation of C60 with rhodamine B isothiocyanate. The results of confocal microscopy showed that leukemic Jurkat cells could effectively uptake fullerene C60 from the medium. Light-emitting diode lamp (100 mW cm-2, λ = 420-700 nm) was used for excitation of accumulated C60. A time-dependent decrease of viability was detected when leukemic Jurkat cells were exposed to combined treatment with C60 and visible light. The cytotoxic effect of photoexcited C60 was comparable with that induced by H2O2, as both agents caused 50% decrease of cell viability at 24 h at concentrations about 50 μM. Using immunoblot analysis, protein phosphotyrosine levels in cells were estimated. Combined action of C60 and visible light was followed by decrease of cellular proteins phosphorylation on tyrosine residues though less intensive as compared with that induced by H2O2 or protein tyrosine kinase inhibitor staurosporine. All tested agents reduced phosphorylation of 55, 70, and 90 kDa proteins while total suppression of 26 kDa protein phosphorylation was specific only for photoexcited C60.

    Recent studies have confirmed the presence of buckminsterfullerene (C{sub 60}) in different interstellar and circumstellar environments. However, several aspects regarding C{sub 60} in space are not yet well understood, such as the formation and excitation processes, and the connection between C{sub 60} and other carbonaceous compounds in the interstellar medium, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). In this paper, we study several photodissociation regions (PDRs) where C{sub 60} and PAHs are detected and the local physical conditions are reasonably well constrained to provide observational insights into these questions. C{sub 60} is found to emit in PDRs where the dust is cool (T{sub d} = 20-40 K) and even in PDRs with cool stars. These results exclude the possibility for C{sub 60} to be locked in grains at thermal equilibrium in these environments. We observe that PAH and C{sub 60} emission are spatially uncorrelated and that C{sub 60} is present in PDRs where the physical conditions (in terms of radiation field and hydrogen density) allow for full dehydrogenation of PAHs, with the exception of Ced 201. We also find trends indicative of an increase in C{sub 60} abundance within individual PDRs, but these trends are not universal. These results support models where the dehydrogenation of carbonaceous species is the first step toward C{sub 60} formation. However, this is not the only parameter involved and C{sub 60} formation is likely affected by shocks and PDR age.

    AIM: To identify genes responsive to apoptosis in HL-60 cells treated by homoharringtonine. METHODS: cDNA microarray technology was used to detect gene expression and the result of microarrays for genes (TIEG and VDUP1) was confirmed by Northern analysis. RESULTS: Seventy-five individual mRNAs whose mass changed significantly were identified. Among these genes (25 were up-regulated and 50 were down-regulated), most are known related to oncogenes and tumor suppressor. Some genes were involved in apoptosis signaling pathways.CONCLUSION: TGFβ and TNF apoptosis signaling pathways were initiated during apoptosis in HL-60 cells.TIEG and VDUP1 play important roles in mediating apoptosis.

    Full Text Available In this paper, the performance of 60GHz wireless communication system with SC and OFDM is studied, the models of OFDM 60GHz system and SC 60GHz frequency domain equalization (SC-FDE system are established, and the bit error rate (BER performance of OFDM 60GHz system and SC-FDE 60GHz system in 802.15.3c channels is compared. The simulation results show that SC-FDE 60GHz system has a slight advantage over OFDM system in line-of-sight (LOS channels, while OFDM 60GHz system has a slight advantage over SC-FDE system in non-line-of-sight (NLOS channels. For 60GHz system, OFDM 60GHz system has a slight advantage over SC-FDE system in overcoming multipath fading, but the performance of both is close whether in the LOS or NLOS case.

  2. Solubility of C60 in solvent mixtures.

    Kulkarni, Pradnya P; Jafvert, Chad T

    2008-02-01

    The potential large-scale production of fullerene C60 and its widespread use in consumer products may translate into occupational and public exposure and in long-term environmental exposure. To assess the risk and fate of C60 in the environment, it is important to understand its solvate formation in common industrial solvents as the solvates may affect various properties of C60 including reactivity and toxicity, particularly when solvates occur in C60 clusters. In this study, the solubility measurements in mixed solvent system can provide useful information about solvate formation. The solubility of C60 was measured in pure toluene, tetrahydrofuran, ethanol, and acetonitrile to be 3000, 11, 1.4, and 0.04 mg/L, respectively. Additionally, the solubility of C60 was measured in mixtures of toluene-acetonitrile, toluene-ethanol, toluene-tetrahydrofuran, and acetonitrile-tetrahydrofuran. The solubility data were modeled with some accuracy using Wohl's equation. The estimated crystal energy term for C60 in tetrahydrofuran was different than that in the other solvents, indicating that the C60 solid phase in equilibrium with tetrahydrofuran solution may be a solvated crystal.

  6. Whatever happened to the 60 Hertz power?

    Waggoner, R.M.

    1996-05-01

    We have all become used to 60 Hertz electrical power - in fact that is what we have expected at the electrical outlet ever since the DC days of George Westinghouse and others in the early part of the 20th Century, We knew that 60 Hertz was generated and transmitted by the power supplier, and we knew that our load devices, when {open_quotes}plugged-in{close_quotes} would accept that frequency when we turned on the switch. The surprise for most of us is that this happy {open_quotes}marriage{close_quotes} of 60 Hertz supply and 60 Hertz load just does not exist much anymore and the prospect for the future is an ever increasing {open_quotes}multiple-frequency{close_quotes} demand by the new sensitive loads. These multiple frequencies, in addition to 60 Hertz, are what we call Harmonics; and, their presence introduces both current and voltage interactions which can disturb our power systems.

    A semi-empirical molecular dynamics model is developed. The central collisions of C60+C60 and He@C60+He@C60 at different incident energies are investigated based on this model. It is found that the dimer structures have been produced at proper incident energies and these fullerene dimers could be formed by a self-assembly of C60 fullerene and He@C60. The He atom has a significant effect at higher incident energy and this embedded He atom can enhance the stability of the dimer structure.

  9. Allele compensation in tip60+/- mice rescues white adipose tissue function in vivo.

    Gao, Yuan; Hamers, Nicole; Rakhshandehroo, Maryam; Berger, Ruud; Lough, John; Kalkhoven, Eric

    2014-01-01

    Adipose tissue is a key regulator of energy homestasis. The amount of adipose tissue is largely determined by adipocyte differentiation (adipogenesis), a process that is regulated by the concerted actions of multiple transcription factors and cofactors. Based on in vitro studies in murine 3T3-L1 preadipocytes and human primary preadipocytes, the transcriptional cofactor and acetyltransferase Tip60 was recently identified as an essential adipogenic factor. We therefore investigated the role of Tip60 on adipocyte differentiation and function, and possible consequences on energy homeostasis, in vivo. Because homozygous inactivation results in early embryonic lethality, Tip60+/- mice were used. Heterozygous inactivation of Tip60 had no effect on body weight, despite slightly higher food intake by Tip60+/- mice. No major effects of heterozygous inactivation of Tip60 were observed on adipose tissue and liver, and Tip60+/- displayed normal glucose tolerance, both on a low fat and a high fat diet. While Tip60 mRNA was reduced to 50% in adipose tissue, the protein levels were unaltered, suggesting compensation by the intact allele. These findings indicate that the in vivo role of Tip60 in adipocyte differentiation and function cannot be properly addressed in Tip60+/- mice, but requires the generation of adipose tissue-specific knock out animals or specific knock-in mice.

    Full Text Available ABSTRAK DESAIN KONSEPTUAL PERISAI RADIASI REAKTOR RRI-50. Salah satu parameter yang harus dipenuhi dalam mendesain reaktor nuklir adalah desain perisai radiasi yang dapat menjamin keamanan dan keselamatan radiasi bagi pekerja dan masyarakat sekitar. Pada penelitian ini dilakukan desain perisai radiasi RRI-50 dengan elemen bakar berjenis U9Mo-Al berkerapatan tinggi dengan tipe pelat sebanyak 21 buah dan berdimensi seperti elemen bakar RSG-GAS tapi panjang aktifnya 70 cm. Konfigurasi teras terdiri dari 16 elemen bakar dan 4 elemen kendali serta 5 posisi iradiasi sehingga membentuk matriks 5 x 5. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah mendesain perisai radiasi dan menentukan distribusi laju dosis di daerah kerja dan di lingkungan reaktor RRI-50. Tahapan awal penelitian adalah perhitungan kuat sumber dan inventori bahan radioaktif teras reaktor dengan mensimulasikan operasi 50 MW selama 20 hari tiap siklus menggunakan program ORGEN2.1. Berdasarkan kuat sumber tersebut dan model yang dibuat menggunakan program VisEd, maka dilakukan analisis penentuan parameter perisai radiasi secara iteratif menggunakan program MCNPX. Pada tahap akhir, dilakukan analisis distribusi laju dosis di seluruh ruang di dalam dan di luar gedung reaktor juga menggunakan program MCNPX. Hasil yang diperoleh menunjukkan bahwa ketinggian permukaan air adalah 1000 cm dan kombinasi 90 cm beton berat dan 60 cm beton biasa dapat digunakan sebagai perisai biologi. Desain perisai tersebut mereduksi laju dosis menjadi 0,05 µSv/jam di Balai Operasi sementara di Balai Eksperimen dan di luar gedung reaktor menjadi 4,2 µSv/jam dan 0,03 µSv/jam pada saat reaktor beroperasi. Hasil penelitian juga menunjukkan pemasagan perisai tambahan setebal 280 cm berjarak 300 cm di depan tabung berkas neutron radial yang terbuka mereduksi laju dosis gamma dan neutron menjadi 3,3 µSv/jam dan 3,1x10-11 µSv/jam.

  4. Active Oxygen Radical Scavenging Ability of Water-Soluble β-Alanine C60 Adducts

    2001-01-01

    Water-soluble β-alanine C60 adducts were synthesized, and the scavenging ability to superoxygen anion radical O2-and hydroxyl radicalOH were studied by autoxidation ofpyrogallol and chemiluminescence, respectively. It was found that β-alanine C60 adducts showed an excellent efficiency in eliminating superoxygen anion radical and hydroxyl radical. The 50% inhibition concentration (IC50) for superoxygen anion radical and hydroxyl radical were 0.15 mg/mL and 0.048 mg/mL, respectively. The difference should be mainly attributed to the different scavenging mechanisms.

  6. Refashioning of an aneurysmatic arterio-venous fistula by using the multifire GIA 60 surgical stapler.

    Hakim, N S; Romagnoli, J; Contis, J C; Akoh, J; Papalois, V E

    1997-01-01

    We describe a technique for refashioning an aneurysmatic arterio-venous fistula by using the multifire GIA 60 surgical stapler. After obtaining proximal and distal control of the aneurysmatic vein each aneurysmal segment of the anterior wall of the vein is excised by applying the GIA 60 stapler. The layer of the staple-line is re-enforced with one layer of 6/0 prolene continuous suture. After completion of the procedure, the size of the vein is reduced by approximately 50%. The AVFs were successfully re-used for dialysis within four weeks postoperatively.

    Thin Au-C{sub 60} films with global composition Au{sub x}C{sub 100-x} (x between 0.35 and 4.50 at.%) were prepared by vacuum co-deposition and investigated by X-ray diffraction, EDS, XTEM and electrical transport. Evidence indicated the formation of distorted nanocrystalline Au, presumably stabilized by interface electron transfer into C{sub 60} LUMO. Electrical results are interpreted in the frame of the dominant current model, with a continuous density of localized states induced by Au in the C{sub 60} gap. There is also evidence for variable range hopping at low temperatures. (orig.) 20 refs.

  11. Cord blood CD4+ T cells respond to self heat shock protein 60 (HSP60.

    Joost A Aalberse

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: To prevent harmful autoimmunity most immune responses to self proteins are controlled by central and peripheral tolerance. T cells specific for a limited set of self-proteins such as human heat shock protein 60 (HSP60 may contribute to peripheral tolerance. It is not known whether HSP60-specific T cells are present at birth and thus may play a role in neonatal tolerance. We studied whether self-HSP60 reactive T cells are present in cord blood, and if so, what phenotype these cells have. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Cord blood mononuclear cells (CBMC of healthy, full term neonates (n = 21, were cultured with HSP60 and Tetanus Toxoid (TT to study antigen specific proliferation, cytokine secretion and up-regulation of surface markers. The functional capacity of HSP60-induced T cells was determined with in vitro suppression assays. Stimulation of CBMC with HSP60 led to CD4(+ T cell proliferation and the production of various cytokines, most notably IL-10, Interferon-gamma, and IL-6. HSP60-induced T cells expressed FOXP3 and suppressed effector T cell responses in vitro. CONCLUSION: Self-reactive HSP60 specific T cells are already present at birth. Upon stimulation with self-HSP60 these cells proliferate, produce cytokines and express FOXP3. These cells function as suppressor cells in vitro and thus they may be involved in the regulation of neonatal immune responses.

  12. Solubility Characteristics of PCBM and C60.

    Boucher, David; Howell, Jason

    2016-11-10

    Empirical data indicate that several good solvents for C60 and [6,6]-phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) have substantial polar and hydrogen-bonding components, which are not intrinsic to the structure of the C60 and PCBM molecules themselves. Functional solubility parameter (FSP) and convex solubility parameter (CSP) computations are performed on C60 and PCBM using solubility data available in the literature. The CSP and FSP results are compared to previously reported Hansen solubility parameters (HSPs) and to the parameters calculated using additive functional group contribution methods. The CSP and FSP methods confirm the anomalously large polar and hydrogen-bonding parameters, δP and δH, obtained experimentally for C60 and PCBM. This behavior, which is quite irregular given the structure of the molecules, is due to the fact that several good solvents have high δP and δH values. Thus, these irregularities are highlighted by the CSP and FSP calculations. Additional contradictory solubility characteristics are disclosed by comparing the experimental solubility parameters to a linear solvation energy relationship (LSER) model, additive functional group calculations, and COSMO-RS computations. The FSP solubility function strongly suggests that the solubility parameters do not accurately represent the cohesive energy density properties of C60 and PCBM, as intended, but rather they manifest the properties of the solvents, e.g., high δP and δH values, that are necessary to accommodate these molecules in the liquid phase.

    An exceptionally stable hollow cage containing 20 scandium atoms and 60 carbon atoms has been identified. This Sc20C60 molecular cluster has a Th point group symmetry and a volleyball-like shape that we refer to below as ``Volleyballene''. Electronic structure analysis shows that the formation of delocalized π bonds between Sc atoms and the neighboring pentagonal rings made of carbon atoms is crucial for stabilizing the cage structure. A relatively large HOMO-LUMO gap (~1.4 eV) was found. The results of vibrational frequency analysis and molecular dynamics simulations both demonstrate that this Volleyballene molecule is exceptionally stable.An exceptionally stable hollow cage containing 20 scandium atoms and 60 carbon atoms has been identified.

    Results: 60 male patients with the mean age of 55 (ranged between 48-62 were included to the study. 50 patients survived, mortality rate was 16.6%. Septic shock (n: 4, cardiogenic shock (n:4 and pneumonia (n:2 were causes of death. As a risk factor, 45 (75% patients had DM, 40 (66.6% patients had HT, and 35 (58.3% patients had both DM and HT. There were no other co-morbid situation for 10 (16.6% patients. All the survived 50 patients were suitable for surgical reconstruction. STSG procedure was performed for 46 (76.6% patients and flap reconstruction was performed for 4 (6.6% patients. None of the patients had hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO. Length of hospitalization was 16 days (5-58 for all patients. A mean FGSI score at admission was of 5.02 +/- 2.45 for survivors compared with 13.8 +/- 4.53 for non-survivors. A mean FGSI score was of 4.56 +/- 2.28 for survivors and 11.50 +/- 2.63 in non-survivors during hospitalization. Conclusion: Although FG has high mortality rates, appropriate management of the disease can reduce rates. Early diagnosis, surgical debridement, VAC application and antibiotherapy are the essentials for FG. [Arch Clin Exp Surg 2016; 5(3.000: 154-159

  19. Knockdown of nucleophosmin by RNA interference reverses multidrug resistance in resistant leukemic HL-60 cells.

    2013-09-01

    Nucleophosmin, a multifunctional nucleolar phosphoprotein, is involved in many cellular activities. However, the role of NPM in drug-resistance of leukemia has not yet been explored. We designed and selected one shRNA targeting on NPM gene transduction into HL-60 and HL-60/ADR cell lines (an adriamycin resistant cell line) by lentivirus. Cell proliferation, apoptosis and differentiation were assessed. The expressions of the related genes and proteins were detected by real-time quantitative RT-PCR and Western blotting. The results showed obvious down-regulation of NPM mRNA and protein levels after NPM RNAi. NPM-targeted RNAi also resulted in many cellular changes, such as, suppressing cell proliferation and inducing cell differentiation. Down-regulation of NPM gene could arrest the cell cycle progression, an increase in the proportion of G0/G1 phase in knockdown groups. NPM gene silencing could also induce pro-apoptotic genes and proteins expression, and inhibit anti-apoptotic genes/proteins expression. Furthermore, IC50 of two chemotherapeutic agents (adriamycin and ADR; daunorubicin and DNR) to HL-60 and HL-60/ADR cells decreased, especially more remarkable on HL-60/ADR cells. IC50 of ADR on HL-60/ADR cells was reduced from 12.544 ± 0.851 μmol/L (before NPM RNAi) to 6.331 ± 0.522 μmol/L (after NPM RNAi), IC50 of DNR was reduced from 2.152 ± 0.143 μmol/L (before NPM RNAi) to 1.116 ± 0.093 μmol/L (after NPM RNAi). The relative reversal rate of HL-60/ADR cells on ADR was 50.2%, and on DNR was 48.9%. In conclusion, our results demonstrated that shRNA expression vectors could effectively reduce NPM expression and restore the drug sensitivity of resistant leukemic cells to conventional chemotherapeutic agents.

  20. Supramolecular frameworks based on [60]fullerene hexakisadducts

    2017-01-01

    Summary [60]Fullerene hexakisadducts possessing 12 carboxylic acid side chains form crystalline hydrogen-bonding frameworks in the solid state. Depending on the length of the linker between the reactive sites and the malonate units, the distance of the [60]fullerene nodes and thereby the spacing of the frameworks can be controlled and for the most elongated derivative, continuous channels are obtained within the structure. Stability, structural integrity and porosity of the material were investigated by powder X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetry and sorption measurements.

  1. Sublimation of hydrofullerenes C 60H 36 and C 60H 18

    Dorozhko, P. A.; Lobach, A. S.; Popov, A. A.; Senyavin, V. M.; Korobov, M. V.

    2001-03-01

    Thermal behavior of two hydrofullerenes, C 60H 36 and C 60H 18, was studied by means of Knudsen cell mass-spectrometry and infrared spectroscopy. Vapor pressures and enthalpies of sublimation at T=550-685 K were measured. Sublimation of the hydrofullerenes was accompanied by partial loss of hydrogen. Decomposition of C 60H 36 was confirmed to be a stepwise process with formation of C 60H 18 as an intermediate product. The material of the Knudsen cell strongly affected the partial pressures and mass-spectra of the hydrofullerene vapor species.

  15. LA50 in burn injuries.

    Seyed-Forootan, K; Karimi, H; Motevalian, S A; Momeni, M; Safari, R; Ghadarjani, M

    2016-03-31

    Burn injuries put a huge financial burden on patients and healthcare systems. They are the 8th leading cause of mortality and the 13th most common cause of morbidity in our country. We used data from our Burn Registry Program to evaluate risk factors for mortality and lethal area fifty percent (LA50) in all burn patients admitted over two years. We used multiple logistic regressions to identify risk factors for mortality. LA50 is a reliable aggregate index for hospital care quality and a good measure for comparing results, also with those of other countries. 28,690 burn patients sought medical attention in the Emergency Department, and 1721 of them were admitted. Male to female ratio was 1,75:1. 514 patients were under 15 years old. Median age was 25 (range: 3 months - 93 years). Overall, probability of death was 8.4%. LA50 was 62.31% (CI 95%: 56.57-70.02) for patients aged 15 and over and 72.52% (CI 95%: 61.01-100) for those under 15. In the final model, we found that Adjusted OR was significant for age, female sex, TBSA and inhalation injury (P age and inhalation injury were the main risk factors for death. Authorities should pay special attention to these variables, especially in prevention programs, to reduce mortality and improve patient outcome. Children have better outcome than adults given equal burn size. Suicide rates are higher for women than men in our country.

  16. Inhibition of DNA restrictive endonucleases and Taq DNA polymerase by trimalonic acid C60

    YANG XinLin; CHEN Zhe; MENG XianMei; LI Bo; TAN Xin

    2007-01-01

    Activities of trimalonic acid fullerene (TMA C60) on DNA restrictive enzymatic reaction were investigated by using two restrictive endonucleases Hind III and EcoR I and plasmid pEGFP-N1 with single restrictive site for both enzymes. Meanwhile,TMA C60 was also tested to clarify its effects on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with the catalyst of Taq DNA polymerase and the template of plasmid pEGFP-N1. The products from restrictive reactions or PCR were detected by agarose gel electrophoresis. It was found that the product amounts from restrictive reactions or PCR decreased significantly with addition of TMA C60. The inhibition by TMA C60 was dose-dependent and IC50 values for reactions of Hind III,EcoR I and PCR were 16.3,6.0 and 6.0 μmol/L,respectively. Addition of two scavengers of reactive oxygen species (ROS),L-ascorbic acid-2-phosphate ester magnesium and sodium azide at the concentrations of 2―10 mmol/L did not antagonize the activities of TMA C60 against PCR and two restrictive reactions. However,increase of Taq DNA polymerase amounts in PCR system antagonized the activities of TMA C60. These data implied that TMA C60 was able to inhibit the activities of the three above-mentioned enzymes involved in DNA metabolism,and that this inhibition probably did not correlate to ROS.

  17. Translocation mechanism of C60 and C60 derivations across a cell membrane

    Liang, Lijun; Kang, Zhengzhong; Shen, Jia-Wei

    2016-11-01

    Carbon-based nanoparticles (NPs) such as fullerenes and nanotubes have been extensively studied for drug delivery in recent years. The permeation process of fullerene and its derivative molecules through membrane is essential to the utilization of fullerene-based drug delivery system, but the mechanism and the dynamics of permeation through cell membrane are still unclear. In this study, coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations were performed to investigate the permeation process of functionalized fullerene molecules (ca. 0.72 nm) through the membrane. Our results show that single functionalized fullerene molecule in such nanoscale could permeate the lipid membrane in micro-second time scale. Pristine C60 molecules prefer to aggregate into several small clusters while C60OH15 molecules could aggregate into one big cluster to permeate through the lipid membrane. After permeation of C60 or its derivatives into membrane, all C60 and C60OH15 molecules disaggregated and monodispersed in the lipid membrane.

  18. Detection of pregnancy by radioimmunoassay of a pregnancy serum protein (PSP60) in cattle

    Mialon, M.M.; Renand, G.; Camous, S.; Martal, J.; Menissier, F. (Institut National de Recherches Agronomiques (INRA), 78 - Jouy-en-Josas (France))

    1994-01-01

    The accuracy and efficiency of pregnancy diagnoses in cattle by pregnancy serum protein (PSP60) radioimmunoassay, a progesterone radioimmunoassay or oestrus detection were compared. Blood samples were taken from 349 suckling heifers and cows ( 1 191 inseminations) at 28, 35, 50 and 90 d post-insemination for PSP60 determination and at 22-23 d for progesterone. Females were declared nonpregnant when plasma PSP60 concentration was lower than 0.2 ng/ml at 28, 35 and 50 d and 0.5 ng/ml at 90 d. When compared with rectal palpation at 90 d, the accuracy of positive (negative) diagnoses by progesterone assay was 80% (100%) in heifers and 75% (99%) in cows. The accuracy of positive diagnoses by PSP60 assay increased with gestation stage from 90% on d 28 in heifers (74% in cows) to 100% (99% in cows) at the time of rectal palpation. This accuracy was 84% on d 28 in cows when the interval from calving to blood sampling was higher than 115 d. Whatever the stage, the accuracy of negative diagnoses was higher than 90%. Efficiency in detecting pregnant or nonpregnant females on d 28 was equivalent to the progesterone assay. The method for detecting oestrus applied in this experiment was as efficient as the PSP60 or progesterone test at any stage of gestation. The PSP60 test is very flexible, which makes its use particularly interesting in naturally mated suckling herds because of the uncertainty regarding the date of fertilization. (authors).

  20. Cardiac myocyte exosomes: stability, HSP60, and proteomics.

    Malik, Z A; Kott, K S; Poe, A J; Kuo, T; Chen, L; Ferrara, K W; Knowlton, A A

    2013-04-01

    Exosomes, which are 50- to 100-nm-diameter lipid vesicles, have been implicated in intercellular communication, including transmitting malignancy, and as a way for viral particles to evade detection while spreading to new cells. Previously, we demonstrated that adult cardiac myocytes release heat shock protein (HSP)60 in exosomes. Extracellular HSP60, when not in exosomes, causes cardiac myocyte apoptosis via the activation of Toll-like receptor 4. Thus, release of HSP60 from exosomes would be damaging to the surrounding cardiac myocytes. We hypothesized that 1) pathological changes in the environment, such as fever, change in pH, or ethanol consumption, would increase exosome permeability; 2) different exosome inducers would result in different exosomal protein content; 3) ethanol at "physiological" concentrations would cause exosome release; and 4) ROS production is an underlying mechanism of increased exosome production. We found the following: first, exosomes retained their protein cargo under different physiological/pathological conditions, based on Western blot analyses. Second, mass spectrometry demonstrated that the protein content of cardiac exosomes differed significantly from other types of exosomes in the literature and contained cytosolic, sarcomeric, and mitochondrial proteins. Third, ethanol did not affect exosome stability but greatly increased the production of exosomes by cardiac myocytes. Fourth, ethanol- and hypoxia/reoxygenation-derived exosomes had different protein content. Finally, ROS inhibition reduced exosome production but did not completely inhibit it. In conclusion, exosomal protein content is influenced by the cell source and stimulus for exosome formation. ROS stimulate exosome production. The functions of exosomes remain to be fully elucidated.

    2006-01-01

    We have converted the Palomar 60-inch telescope (P60) from a classical night assistant-operated telescope to a fully robotic facility. The automated system, which has been operational since September 2004, is designed for moderately fast (t <~ 3 minutes) and sustained (R <~ 23 mag) observations of gamma-ray burst afterglows and other transient events. Routine queue-scheduled observations can be interrupted in response to electronic notification of transient events. An automated pipeline reduces data in real-time, which is then stored on a searchable web-based archive for ease of distribution. We describe here the design requirements, hardware and software upgrades, and lessons learned from roboticization. We present an overview of the current system performance as well as plans for future upgrades.

  2. The NA60 experiment readout architecture

    Floris, M; Usai, G L; David, A; Rosinsky, P; Ohnishi, H

    2004-01-01

    The NA60 experiment was designed to identify signatures of a new state of matter, the Quark Gluon Plasma, in heavy-ion collisions at the CERN Super Proton Synchroton. The apparatus is composed of four main detectors: a muon spectrometer (MS), a zero degree calorimeter (ZDC), a silicon vertex telescope (VT), and a silicon microstrip beam tracker (BT). The readout of the whole experiment is based on a PCI architecture. The basic unit is a general purpose PCI card, interfaced to the different subdetectors via custom mezzanine cards. This allowed us to successfully implement several completely different readout protocols (from the VME like protocol of the MS to the custom protocol of the pixel telescope). The system was fully tested with proton and ion beams, and several million events were collected in 2002 and 2003. This paper presents the readout architecture of NA60, with particular emphasis on the PCI layer common to all the subdetectors. (16 refs).

  3. Novel metal-carbon(60) nanocrystalline magnetic thin films

    Zheng, Lingyi

    1999-11-01

    A novel type of nanocrystalline magnetic thin films consisting of ferromagnetic metals and C60 have been developed and investigated. CO-C 60, Fe-C60 and CoFe-C60 with different concentrations of C60 thin films have been manufactured by thermal vapor codeposition. The microstructures and magnetic properties of the films can be significantly enhanced by varying the concentrations of C60 in the films. The stability of C60 and the compatibility of C60 with the metallic matrices are confirmed by mass spectrometry, Raman, WDS, XRD and TEM. Strong metal- C60 interaction is indicated by higher desorption temperatures of C60 in the meta- C60 films than that in pure C60 and the peak shift in Raman spectra. TEM shows that the grain size of the matrix metal decreases proportionally with increasing C60 concentration. Nanosize uniform columnar grains with nanoscale dispersion of C60 on the grain boundaries are commonly observed in the metal-C60 films. A self- assembly grain growth model based on the size effect of C60 and the metal-C60 interaction is proposed to delineate the microstructural evolution by C60. Calculations based on this model are consistent with experimental observations and give a grain size vs. C60 (carbon) concentration relationship. Grain growth retardation by C60 is observed in a CO-C60 film. Out-plane magnetic remanence and coercivity are enhanced in both the CO-C60 and Fe-C60 films. In the in-plane direction, the coercivity deceases in CO- C60 films but increases slightly in Fe- C60 films with increasing C60 concentrations. In-plane magnetic anisotropy is detected in CO-C60 films but not in Fe-C60 films. Strong temperature-dependent magnetization remanence and saturation are found in both the Co- C60 and Fe-C60 films with high C60 concentrations due to the nanosize grain effects. Temperature effects on the coercivity of CO- C60 and Fe-C60 are different and determined by the intrinsic magnetocrystalline anisotropy energy. Coercivity of the CoFe-C60 films

  19. Comparison of corrosion behaviors of AZ31, AZ91,AM60 and ZK60 magnesium alloys

    CHENG Ying-liang; QIN Ting-wei; WANG Hui-min; ZHANG Zhao

    2009-01-01

    The corrosion behaviours of four kinds of rolled magnesium alloys of AZ31, AZ91, AM60 and ZK60 were studied in 1 mol/L sodium chloride solution. The results of EIS and potentiodynamic polarization show that the corrosion resistance of the four materials is ranked as ZK60>AM60>AZ31>AZ91. The corrosion processes of the four magnesium alloys were also analyzed by SEM and energy dispersive spectroscopy(EDS). The results show that the corrosion patterns of the four alloys are localized corrosion and the galvanic couples formed by the second phase particles and the matrix are the main source of the localized corrosion of magnesium alloys. The corrosion resistance of the different magnesium alloys has direct relationship with the concentration of alloying elements and microstructure of magnesium alloys. The ratio of the β phase in AZ91 is higher than that in AZ31 and the β phase can form micro-galvanic cell with the alloy matrix, as a result, the corrosion resistance of AZ31 will be higher than AZ91. The manganese element in AM60 magnesium alloy can form the second phase particle of AlMnFe, which can reduce the Fe content in magnesium alloy matrix, purifying the microstructure of alloy, as a result, the corrosion resistance of AM60 is improved. However, due to the more noble galvanic couples of AlMnFe and matrix, the microscopic corrosion morphology of AM60 is more localized. The zirconium element in ZK60 magnesium alloy can refine grain, form stable compounds with Fe and Si, and purify the composition of alloy, which results in the good corrosion resistance of ZK60 magnesium alloy.

  20. CERN The next 50 years

    Maiani, Luciano

    2004-01-01

    The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) from CERN is a 14 TeV proton-proton collider that is at the cutting edge of technology, and is a heartening sign of both the public's support for basic science in Europe and beyond, and the determination of European countries to stay at the forefront of particle physics. Realization of this project started some 50 years ago. Now for the next 50 years, particle phycists not only at CERN are planning a new generation of experiments that will push the high-energy boundary back even further. At CERN, a high-energy electron-positron linear collider, such as the 3-5 TeV Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) project is being considered. At Fermilab, focus is on a Very Large Hadron Collider (VLHC) that would take physicists into the 200 TeV region. These two possibilities could be among the long-term goals of the global accelerator network, which would keep the world's particle physicists busy until 2050.

  7. Regulation of Histone Acetylation and Apoptosis by Trichostatin in HL-60 Cells

    李新刚; 陈维凯; 谷俊侠; 崔国惠; 陈燕

    2004-01-01

    In order to examine the strong anticancer action and low toxicity of Trichostatin A(TSA), the effect of TSA was examined on the growth inhibition, acetylation of histone H3 and apoptosis in HL-60 cells by employing MTT, immunocytochemical techniques, and Annexin-V-FITC/PI assay. Our results showed that TSA could inhibit proliferation of HL- 60 cells in a time- and dose-dependent manner, and the IC50 at the 36th h was 100 ng/ml. The apoptosis-inducing effect of TSA on HL-60 cells was also time- and dose-dependent. But it didn't demonstrate apparent apoptosis induction in NPBMNCs within specific dose and time range. Both of the acetylation of histone H3 in HL-60 cells and NPBMNCs increased significantly (P<0.05) after treated with 100 ng/ml TSA for 4 h. However, there was no significant differences between the two groups (P>0.05). It is concluded that TSA can inhibit growth and induce apoptosis of HL-60 cells in a time- and dosedependent manner, and is able to selectively induce apoptosis in HL-60 cells but does not respond in NPBMNCs under the same conditions. The difference of TSA between HL-60 cells and NPBMNCs can't be explained by the regulation of histone acetylation.

    Highlights: ► JT-60SA Cryostat Base has been fabricated in seven structures fastened by bolts. ► The pieces are fully welded structures further machined to get required tolerances. ► The pre-assembly of the Cryostat Base will be done at the factory to check final tolerances as well as to anticipate problems which could be encountered during final assembly. -- Abstract: JT-60SA is a superconducting tokamak to be assembled and operated at the JAEA laboratories in Naka (Japan) [1]. The tokamak has been designed to prepare, support and complement the ITER experimental programme and will be manufactured and operated under the funding of the Broader Approach Agreement (between the government of Japan and the European Commission) and of the Japan Fusion National Programme. Within the European contribution to JT-60SA, Spain has to provide the cryostat. Due to functional purposes, the cryostat has been divided in two large assemblies: the Cryostat Base (CB) and the Cryostat Vessel Body the latter subdivided into Cryostat Vessel Body Cylindrical Section (CVBCS) and the Top Lid. Spain is committed to provide the design and subsequent manufacturing of the CB and CVBCS (excluding the Top Lid) through the National Laboratory of Fusion at Ciemat. The design of both components has been concluded and the CB is currently being manufactured by a Spanish company, IDESA. This paper aims to present the status of the manufacturing and pre-assembly at the factory of the CB that has to be delivered in November 2012.

  11. Development of irradiator {sup 60}Co sources

    Mosca, Rodrigo C.; Moura, Eduardo S.; Zeituni, Carlos A.; Mathor, Monica B., E-mail: rcmosca@usp.b [Instituto de Pesquisas Energeticas e Nucleares (IPEN/CNEN-SP), Sao Paulo, SP (Brazil)

    2011-07-01

    According to a recent report by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) / WHO (2008-2010), the global impact of cancer more than doubled in 30 years. In this report, it was estimated that occurred about 12 million new cancer cases and 7 million deaths. In Brazil in 2010, with estimates for the year 2011, point to the occurrence of 489,270 new cases of cancer. Among the possibilities for cancer treatment, radiotherapy is one of the most important therapeutic and resources used to combat it. However, inherent complications of treatment can occur such as tiredness, loss of appetite, radiodermatitis and in more extreme cases late radionecrosis. In order to reproduce a point of radionecrosis in the vicinity of radiodermatitis to mimic these effects in animals, producing a model for assessment of tissue repair, we propose the setting up of an irradiator source of collimated {sup 60}Co. The development of was based on 11 sources of {sup 60}Co with 1 mm thickness that were inserted by inference in stainless steel 'gate-source' screw (patent pending) and later adjusted in a cross-shaped arrangement reinforced so that the beam radiation is directed to a target point, saving for other regions around this target point. The main use of this irradiator with sources of {sup 60}Co is just one cause radionecrosis point (target point) of approximately 5 mm{sup 2} with a surrounding and adjacent area of radiodermatitis around about 8 to 10 mm{sup 2} in laboratory animals for subsequent coating with epidermal-dermal matrix populated by a cell culture of human fibroblasts, keratinocytes and mesenchymal stem cells. With that said, its use will be valuable for evaluation of curative treatments against the bone and radionecrosis or palliative treatment rather than as it is currently assumed. (author)

  20. Growth inhibition and differentiation of promyelocytic cells (HL-60) induced by BC-4, an active principle from Boswellia carterii Birdw.

    Jing, Y; Xia, L; Han, R

    1992-03-01

    The induction of cell differentiation and growth inhibition of HL-60 cells by Bc-4, an active principle from Boswellia carterii, was studied in vitro and in vivo. The proliferation of HL-60 cells was found to be inhibited by Bc-4 at a concentration of 5-10 micrograms/ml. Under the action of Bc-4, the acid phosphatase and NBT reduction activities in HL-60 cells were increased, and phagocytosis of cells was also induced. All these activities were concentration dependent. The HL-60 cells were induced by Bc-4 to differentiate into more mature cells morphologically. The in vivo growth of HL-60 cells in mouse subrenal capsules (SRC) and in diffusion chambers inoculated into mice was inhibited by Bc-4 at a dose of 50 mg/kg. The morphology of HL-60 cells treated by Bc-4 in diffusion chambers exhibited characteristics of mature granulocytic cells.

  3. Pycnogenol induces differentiation and apoptosis in human promyeloid leukemia HL-60 cells.

    Huang, W W; Yang, J S; Lin, C F; Ho, W J; Lee, M R

    2005-06-01

    Pycnogenol, rich of many phytochemicals of medical value, is a commercialized nutrient supplement extracted from the bark of European coastal pine. In this study, we investigated the anti-tumor effects of Pycnogenol on HL-60, U937 and K562 human leukemia cell lines. We found that Pycnogenol inhibited cell proliferation dose- and time-dependently, and the IC(50)s of Pycnogenol on HL-60, U937 and K562 cells were 150, 40 and 100 microg/ml, respectively. When HL-60 cells were incubated with low concentrations of Pycnogenol (50, 100 and 125 microg/ml) for 24 h, a prominent G0/G1 arrest was observed, followed by gradual accumulation of sub-G0/G1 nuclei. At 48 h of treatment, 50-70% of HL-60 cells differentiated, as evidenced by morphological changes, NBT reduction, induction of NSE activity, and increases of cell surface expression of CD11b. However, results from Annexin V/PI staining, DAPI staining and DNA fragmentation assay indicated that Pycnogenol induced HL-60, U937 and K562 cell apoptosis at their respective IC(50)s after 24 h of treatments. Pretreatment of z-DEVD-fmk, a caspase-3 specific inhibitor, not only decreased caspase-3 activity but also reduced the percentage of apoptotic cells induced by Pycnogenol. This indicated that caspase-3 activation was involved in Pycnogenol induced-apoptosis. In conclusion, Pycnogenol induced differentiation and apoptosis in leukemia cells. Our data suggest that Pycnogenol could serve as a potent cancer chemopreventive or chemotherapeutic agent for human leukemia.

    2004-01-01

    Aim To study the effect of 8-chloroadenosine (8-CA)on undifferentiatied HL-60 cell line.Methods The IC50 of cancer cell proliferation was determined using a microculture plate reader at 570 nm (MTT) and 540 nm (SRB).Morphology of HL-60 cells was observed under a scanning electron microscope and a transmission electron microscope.The differentiation of HL-60 cells was examined by nitro blue tetrazolium reduction (NBT) and acid phosphatase assay.The cycle of HL-60 cells was analyzed by flow cytometry.Results 8-CA inhibited proliferation of eight human cancer cell lines.The IC50 ranked in the following order: KB (0.05 μmol·L-1) < HL-60 (0.25 μmol·L-1) < Bel-7402 (0.56 μmol·L-1) < MCF-7 (0.65 μmol·L-1) < HCT (0.79 μmol·L-1) < HeLa (0.89 μmol·L-1) < BGC-823 (1.149 μmol·L-1) < PG (2.50 μmol·L-1).The scanning and transmission electron microscopy showed that the microvilli of HL-60 cell surface shortened, and the shape of HL-60 cells nuclei changed to kidney-shaped, horse shoe-shaped and bilob ated after treatment with 8-CA.Meanwhile, 8-CA promoted NBT reduction and increased activity of acid phosphatase in HL-60 cells in a time and concentration-dependent manner.Flow cytometry analysis indicated that 8-CA induced an appreciable increase of the cell population in G1 phase with a marked reduction in S phase.Conclusion 8-CA can induce differentiation of HL-60 cells and block the cells at G1 phase, thus inhibiting proliferation of HL-60 cells.

    To review the effectiveness and complication of percutaneous cholecystostomy (PCCS). We performed PCCS in 60 patient who presented with acute cholecystitis. The causes of acute cholecystitis were as follows; acalculous cholecystitis(n=8), calculous cholecystitis(n=23), GB hydrops (n=3), GB empyema(n=15), septic cholangitis(n=11). Of 60 patients, 36 patients had high risk factor for cholecystectomy; underlying malignancy(n=13), severe trauma(n=6). Cholecystostomy was done under ultrasonographic and fluoroscopic guide. The cholecystostomy was successfully in 59 patients, and failed in 1 patient. 15 patients improved without other procedure. 16 patients underwent cholecystectomy after improvement of their general condition. Severe complications of PCCS are as follows; bile peritonitis(n=6), hemoperitoneum(n=1), subphrenic abscess(n=1). Mild complication, such as pain, occurred in most patients. Emergency operation was done in one patient who developed bile peritonitis. Cholecystostomy is effective and safe, especially in cases of inoperable patients who represent acute cholecystitis. Percutaneous cholecystostomy may substitute surgical cholecystostomy.

    2012-10-01

    Full Text Available Epilepsy in older individuals has an elevated incidence. The objective of the present work was to evaluate the clinical, EEG and brain imaging aspects in patients showing late-onset epilepsy. Fifty-five patients with late-onset epilepsy (older than 50 years were evaluated. They were composed of two groups according to the onset age of the epilepsy seizure (ES: 51-60 (G51-60 and over 60 (G60+ years. Focal ES predominated although they were less frequent in G60+. The occurrence of status epilepticus was high and more frequent in G60+ whereas seizures in series predominated in G51-60. Symptomatic epilepsy was more frequent and the vascular etiology predominated. Epileptiform activity was associated with a greater number of ES, and background activity abnormalities were more frequent in G60+. In conclusion, epilepsy with onset at over 50 was predominantly focal and symptomatic, with a high occurrence of status epilepticus and of seizures in series.

    The Constellation program (CxP) has developed a list of 50 sites of interest on the Moon which will be targeted by the LRO narrow angle camera. The list has also been provided to the M team to supplement their targeting list. This list does not represent a "site selection" process; rather the goal was to find "representative" sites and terrains to understand the range of possible surface conditions for human lunar exploration to aid engineering design and operational planning. The list compilers leveraged heavily on past site selection work (e.g. Geoscience and a Lunar Base Workshop - 1988, Site Selection Strategy for a Lunar Outpost - 1990, Exploration Systems Architecture Study (ESAS) - 2005). Considerations included scientific, resource utilization, and operational merits, and a desire to span lunar terrain types. The targets have been organized into two "tiers" of 25 sites each to provide a relative priority ranking in the event of mutual interference. A LEAG SAT (special action team) was established to validate and recommend modifications to the list. This SAT was chaired by Dr. Paul Lucey. They provided their final results to CxP in May. Dr. Wendell Mendell will organize an on-going analysis of the data as they come down to ensure data quality and determine if and when a site has sufficient data to be retired from the list. The list was compiled using the best available data, however, it is understood that with the flood of new lunar data, minor modifications or adjustments may be required.

    The cryogenic silicon Beam Tracker of NA60 is the first detector based on the Lazarus effect used in a high-energy physics experiment. It employs single-sided silicon strip sensors of 50mum pitch operated at a temperature of 130K. Two tracking stations determine the transverse coordinates of the interaction point at the target with 20mum resolution, to improve the determination of the offset of secondary vertices. This impact parameter measurement allows NA60 to distinguish between prompt dimuons and muon pairs from D-meson decays. The detector concept and technical feasibility have been demonstrated in beam time periods between 1999 and 2002.

    2011-01-01

    In this study, aged aqueous suspensions of C(60) (nC(60)) were investigated in the respirometric OECD test for ready biodegradability. Two suspensions of nC(60) were prepared by stirring and aged under indirect exposure to sunlight for 36 months. ATR-FTIR analyses confirmed the presence of C(60....... After additional 20 days, no mineralisation of nC(60) was observed. However, within a few days sodium acetate was completely mineralised, showing that the biomass was not inhibited by the presence of nC(60). Based on results from this simple approach, aged nC(60) can be classified as not ready...

  20. On the fluorescence of C60 at room temperature

    2010-01-01

    The fluorescence properties of C 60 in different organic solvents have been investigated at room temperature. Three fluorescence emission centers are discovered and ascribed to different aggregations of C 60 in solvent. A series of blue fluorescence peaks centered at 440 nm derive from C 60 nanoparticles; a distinctive yellow-green fluorescence band in 575 nm region arises from the aggregates of C 60 nanoparticles; a more informative salmon fluorescence band around 700 nm originates from C 60 microcrystals. And the distinct configurations of C 60 aggregations are closely associated with the characteristic interaction between C 60 and solvent molecules.

  1. Increased levels of IgG antibodies against human HSP60 in patients with spondyloarthritis.

    Astrid Hjelholt

    Full Text Available Spondyloarthritis (SpA comprises a heterogeneous group of inflammatory diseases, with strong association to human leukocyte antigen (HLA-B27. A triggering bacterial infection has been considered as the cause of SpA, and bacterial heat shock protein (HSP seems to be a strong T cell antigen. Since bacterial and human HSP60, also named HSPD1, are highly homologous, cross-reactivity has been suggested in disease initiation. In this study, levels of antibodies against bacterial and human HSP60 were analysed in SpA patients and healthy controls, and the association between such antibodies and disease severity in relation to HLA-B27 was evaluated.Serum samples from 82 patients and 50 controls were analysed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA for immunoglobulin (IgG1, IgG2, IgG3 and IgG4 antibodies against human HSP60 and HSP60 from Chlamydia trachomatis, Salmonella enteritidis and Campylobacter jejuni. Disease severity was assessed by the clinical scorings Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI, Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index (BASFI and Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index (BASMI. Levels of IgG1 and IgG3 antibodies against human HSP60, but not antibodies against bacterial HSP60, were elevated in the SpA group compared with the control group. Association between IgG3 antibodies against human HSP60 and BASMI was shown in HLA-B27⁺ patients. Only weak correlation between antibodies against bacterial and human HSP60 was seen, and there was no indication of cross-reaction. These results suggest that antibodies against human HSP60 is associated with SpA, however, the theory that antibodies against human HSP60 is a specific part of the aetiology, through cross-reaction to bacterial HSP60, cannot be supported by results from this study. We suggest that the association between elevated levels of antibodies against human HSP60 and disease may reflect a general activation of the immune system and an increased

  2. Hot Isostatic Pressing of 60-Nitinol

    Stanford, Malcolm K.

    2015-01-01

    The effects of varying the time, temperature and pressure during consolidation of 60-Nitinol (Nickel Titanium alloy) by hot isostatic pressing (HIP) were examined. Six HIP cycles with a cycle time of either 2 or 20 hours, temperature of 900 or 1000 degrees Centigrade, and a chamber pressure of either 100 or 200 millipascals were used. The cycle representing the shortest cycle time at the highest temperature and pressure (2 hours/1000 degrees Centigrade/200 millipascals) produced material with the highest hardness (720 Vickers Pyramid Number (HV)). A modest increase in average grain size and significant porosity reduction were observed in material subjected to the longest cycle time at the highest temperature, regardless of the pressure applied. The intent of this study is to facilitate the technology transfer involved in the processing of this material.

    2015-11-24

    This 60 second public service announcement (PSA) is based on the November 24, 2015 CDC Vital Signs report. Preexposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, is a daily medicine that can be used to prevent getting HIV. PrEP is for people who don’t have HIV but who are at very high risk for getting it from sex or injection drug use. Unfortunately, many people who can benefit from PrEP aren’t taking it.  Created: 11/24/2015 by National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP).   Date Released: 11/24/2015.

    CERN Bulletin

    2014-01-01

    A special event to celebrate CERN’s anniversary will be held Monday 20 October at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, US. High-profile speakers from the world of politics, diplomacy and science will celebrate their common values: inclusion, peaceful co-operation and universality.   CERN’s relations with intergovernmental organisations are part of CERN’s engagement with key stakeholders, which include, among others, the Member States, the scientific community, and the Host States. In recent years, the Laboratory has grown from European to global and it is actively engaged in several collaborations with other intergovernmental organisations, including the UN and some of its agencies (UNESCO, UNITAR, WHO, WIPO, WMO, etc.). “It seemed natural for us to organise an event to celebrate CERN's 60th anniversary with this international community,” explains Maurizio Bona, advisor to the Director-General in charge of relations with interna...

  5. Sorption of {sup 60} Co on inorganic solids; Sorcion de {sup 60} Co en solidos inorganicos

    Granados C, F.; Bulbulian G, S. [ININ, 52045 Ocoyoacac, Estado de Mexico (Mexico); Mardel V, B. [UAM-I, 09340 Mexico D.F. (Mexico)

    2003-07-01

    The behavior of sorption of the {sup 60} Co in aqueous solution under static conditions to different values of pH of the aqueous solution (1, 3, 5, 7, and 10) on MgO, MnO{sub 2}, SnO, TiO{sub 2}, activated carbon and calcinate hydrotalcite was investigated. It was found that the best sorbents of the {sup 60} Co was the MnO{sub 2}, activated carbon and TiO{sub 2} whose sorption was incremented when increasing the pH value of the aqueous solutions, in the one case of the hydrated oxides, the {sup 60} Co interacted with the electrically charged surface of the sorbents that depends on the pH of the solution and of the point of zero charge (zpc) of the sorbent.

  6. NASA 50 amp hour nickel cadmium battery waste heat determination

    Mueller, V. C.

    1980-01-01

    A process for determining the waste heat generated in a 50-ampere-hour, nickel cadmium battery as a function of the discharge rate is described and results are discussed. The technique involved is essentially calibration of the battery as a heat transfer rate calorimeter. The tests are run at three different levels of battery activity, one at 40-watts of waste heat generated, one at 60, and one at 100. Battery inefficiency ranges from 14 to 18 percent at discharge rates of 284 to 588 watts, respectively and top-of-cell temperatures of 20 C.

    2016-01-01

    Objective The aim of the study was to investigate whether ethanolic extract of propolis inhibits the growth and induces apoptosis of HL-60 cel s. Methods HL-60 cel s were treated for 24, 48, 72 h with various concentrations ethanolic extracts of prop-olis (0, 50, 100, and 200 μg/mL). The proliferation of HL-60 cels was determined using the 3-(4,5-dimeth-ylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay. Subsequently, Hochest 33258 staining and terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase dUTP nick end labeling (TUNEL) were used to test the apoptosis of HL-60 cel s. We observed the expression levels of Bax and Bcl-2 in HL-60 cel s by immunohistochemistry. Results MTT assay showed that various concentrations of ethanolic extract of propolis had significant inhibitory efect on HL-60 cel proliferation (P Conclusion Ethanolic extract of propolis inhibits leukemia cel proliferation and induces apoptosis in vitro. Its mechanism may be related to the regulation of Bax and Bcl-2 expression and up-regulation of Bcl-2/Bax ratio.

    2014-06-01

    This study was aimed to investigate the effect of COX-2 inhibitor celecoxib on proliferation, apoptosis of human acute myeloid leukemia cell line HL-60 and its mechanism. HL-60 cells were cultured with different concentrations of celecoxib for 24 h. Cell proliferation was analyzed by CCK-8 assay, cell apoptosis and cell cycle distribution were detected by flow cytometry. Cyclin D1, cyclin E1 and COX-2 mRNA expressions were determined by RT-PCR. The results showed that after the HL-60 cells were treated with different concentrations of celecoxib for 24 h, the cell growth was significantly inhibited in a dose-dependent manner(r = 0.955), IC50 was 63.037 µmol/L of celecoxib. Celecoxib could effectively induce apoptosis in HL-60 cells also in dose-dependent manner(r = 0.988), blocked the HL-60 cells in the G0/G1 phase. The expression of cyclin D1, cyclin E1 and COX-2 mRNA were downregulated. It is concluded that celecoxib can inhibit the proliferation of HL-60 cells in dose-dependent manner, celecoxib causes cell G0/G1 arrest and induces cell apoptosis possibly through down-regulation of the cyclin D1 and cyclin E1 expression, and down-regulation of COX-2 expression respectively.

    CAO Fa-he; LIN Long-yong; ZHANG Zhao; ZHANG Jian-qing; CAO Chu-nan

    2008-01-01

    Plasma electrolytic oxidation of Mg-based AM60 alloys was investigated using 50 Hz AC anodizing technique in an alkaline borate solution, which contained a new kind of organic. The anodic film is relatively smooth with some micro pores and cracks, while the anodic film consists of MgO, MgAl2O4 and MgSiO3. The electrochemical behavior of anodic film was studied by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and potentiodynamic polarization. Polarization results indicate the PEO treatment can decrease corrosion current by 3-4 magnitude compared with blank AM60 alloy. The anodic film presents a good level of corrosion protection for AM60 magnesium alloy, over 272 h of the salt spray test based on ASTM B117. The effect of micro-structure and composition on corrosion protection efficiency was also investigated.

  13. Electrochemical corrosion behavior of X52 and X60 steels in carbon dioxide containing saltwater solution

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available X52 and X60 high strength low alloy (HSLA steels are widely used in the construction of petroleum pipelines. This paper discusses the corrosion resistance of X52 and X60 steels in CO2 containing saltwater at pH 4.4 and 50 ºC. A circulating flow loop system inside an autoclave was used for conducting the experimental work. The rotating impeller speed was 2000 rpm. The corrosion rate was monitored using in situ electrochemical methods such as potentiodynamic sweep, linear polarization resistance, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS methods. Results indicated that the corrosion rate of X60 steel is relatively higher than that of X52 steel.

  14. Dark Bursts in the Swift Era: The Palomar 60 inch-Swift Early Optical Afterglow Catalog

    Cenko, S B; Harrison, F A; Fox, D B; Kulkarni, S R; Kasliwal, M M; Ofek, E O; Rau, A; Gal-Yam, A; Frail, D A; Moon, D -S

    2008-01-01

    We present multi-color optical observations of long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) made over a three year period with the robotic Palomar 60 inch telescope (P60). Our sample consists of all 29 events discovered by Swift for which P60 began observations less than one hour after the burst trigger. We were able to recover 80% of the optical afterglows from this prompt sample, and we attribute this high efficiency to our red coverage. Like Melandri et al. (2008), we find that a significant fraction (~ 50%) of Swift events show a suppression of the optical flux with regards to the X-ray emission (so-called "dark" bursts). Our multi-color photometry demonstrates this is likely due in large part to extinction in the host galaxy. We argue that previous studies, by selecting only the brightest and best-sampled optical afterglows, have significantly underestimated the amount of dust present in typical GRB environments.

  17. Dosimetry of Cobalt 60 Gamma Chamber

    S.N. Upadhyay

    1999-07-01

    Full Text Available Ferrous sulphate-benzoic acid-xylen(tl orange (FBX dosimetric system is linear in the range fl|0m 0.01 Gy to 10 Gy and can be used in the case of a nuclear accident, for documenting clinical doses in total-body irradiations in radiation therapy as well as for measuring daily radiation dose during external beam therapy because of its tissue-equivallency. FBX system is stable up to 15 days in the range 15 - 60 degree centigrade. It is independent of photon energy up to 3 ke V and is fairly dose rate in dependent in the range from 0.01 to 2.5 Gy/min. Besides its use in radiation therapy, external beam therapy and nuclear accidents, the present study shows that this dosimeter can be effectively used for determining positional variation inside the gamma chamber. This has been detected by placing dosimetric solutions in small bottles kept in two racks of the phantom in a symmetrical fashion. Average variations in two tracks were found to be 2.74 per cent, 0.33 per cent, 4 per cent and 4.83 per cent.

  19. Engineering cybernetics:60 years in the making

    Zhiqiang GAO

    2014-01-01

    The landmark book of Hsue-Shen Tsien, ‘Engineering Cybernetics’, gave birth 60 years ago to an engineering science of interrelations and synthetic behaviors. Clothing the bare bones of Norbert Wiener’s conception of cybernetics, the book delineates for the new science the requirement (of having direct impacts on engineering applications), the aim (of encapsulating engineering principles and concepts), the problems (of analysis, design, and uncertainty), the tools (of basic and advanced mathematics), and the scope (systems that are single input and output or multiple input and output, linear or nonlinear, deterministic or stochastic). The book is a showcase of originality, critical thinking and foresights. In particular, the author calls into question the basic assumption that‘the properties and characteristics of the system to be controlled were always assumed to be known’ and points out that, in reality, ‘large unpredictable variations of the system properties may occur’. Sixty years later, the full spectrum of Tsien’s prophetic ideas is yet to be fully grasped and engineering cybernetics, as Tsien envisioned, is still in the making.

  14. Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease Virus Variant Recombinant VP60 Protein Induces Protective Immunogenicity.

    Yang, Dong-Kun; Kim, Ha-Hyun; Nah, Jin-Ju; Song, Jae-Young

    2015-11-01

    Rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) is highly contagious and often causes fatal disease that affects both wild and domestic rabbits of the species Oryctolagus cuniculus. A highly pathogenic RHDV variant (RHDVa) has been circulation in the Korean rabbit population since 2007 and has a devastating effect on the rabbit industry in Korea. A highly pathogenic RHDVa was isolated from naturally infected rabbits, and the gene encoding the VP60 protein was cloned into a baculovirus transfer vector and expressed in insect cells. The hemagglutination titer of the Sf-9 cell lysate infected with recombinant VP60 baculovirus was 131,072 units/50 μl and of the supernatant 4,096 units/50 μl. Guinea pigs immunized twice intramuscularly with a trial inactivated RHDVa vaccine containing recombinant VP60 contained 2,152 hemagglutination inhibition (HI) geometric mean titers. The 8-week-old white rabbits inoculated with one vaccine dose were challenged with a lethal RHDVa 21 days later and showed 100% survival rates. The recombinant VP60 protein expressed in a baculovirus system induced high HI titers in guinea pigs and rendered complete protection, which led to the development of a novel inactivated RHDVa vaccine.

  15. Immunological assessment of mice hyperimmunized with native and Cobalt-60-irradiated Bothrops venoms

    R. S. Ferreira Junior

    2005-12-01

    Full Text Available ELISA was used to evaluate, accompany, and compare the humoral immune response of Swiss mice during hyperimmunization with native and Cobalt-60-irradiated (60Co venoms of Bothrops jararaca, Bothrops jararacussu and Bothrops moojeni. Potency and neutralization were evaluated by in vitro challenges. After hyperimmunization, immunity was observed by in vivo challenge, and the side effects were assessed. The animals immunization with one LD50 of each venom occurred on days 1, 15, 21, 30, and 45, when blood samples were collected; challenges happened on the 60th day. Results showed that ELISA was efficient in evaluating, accompanying and comparing mouse immune response during hyperimmunization. Serum titers produced with natural venom were similar to those produced with irradiated venom. Immunogenic capacity was maintained after 60Co-irradiation. The sera produced with native venom showed neutralizing potency and capacity similar to those of the sera produced with irradiated venom. All antibodies were able to neutralize five LD50 from these venoms. Clinical alterations were minimum during hyperimmunization with irradiated venom, however, necrosis and death occurred in animals inoculated with native venom.

  16. Pinoresinol inhibits proliferation and induces differentiation on human HL60 leukemia cells.

    Sepporta, Maria Vittoria; Mazza, Teresa; Morozzi, Guido; Fabiani, Roberto

    2013-01-01

    Pinoresinol (PIN), one of the simplest lignans, is the precursor of other dietary lignans that are present in whole-grain cereals, legumes, fruits, and other vegetables. Several experimental and epidemiological evidences suggest that lignans may prevent human cancer in different organs. In this study we investigated the chemopreventive properties of PIN on cell lines derived from different sites either expressing or not the functional tumor suppressor protein p53. It was found that PIN inhibited the proliferation of p53 wild type colon and prostate tumor cells (HCT116 and LNCaP) while in breast cells the inhibition of growth was observed only in p53 mutant cells (MDA-MB-231). A potent antiproliferative activity of PIN was also observed on p53 null cells HL60 (IC50% 8 μM), their multidrug resistant variant HL60R (IC50% 32 μM) and K562. On HL60 cells, PIN caused a block of cell cycle in the G0/G1 phase, induced a weak proapoptotic effect but it was a good trigger of differentiation (NBT reduction and CD11b expression). PIN caused an upregulation of the CDK inhibitor p21(WAF1/Cip1) both at mRNA and protein levels so suggesting that this could be a mechanism by which PIN reduced proliferation and induced differentiation on HL60 cells.

    50% of the heavy element abundances are produced via slow neutron capture reactions in different stellar scenarios. The underlying nucleosynthesis models need the input of neutron capture cross sections. One of the fundamental signatures for active nucleosynthesis in our galaxy is the observation of long-lived radioactive isotopes, such as $^{60}$Fe with a half-life of $2.60\\times10^6$ yr. To reproduce this $\\gamma$-activity in the universe, the nucleosynthesis of $^{60}$Fe has to be understood reliably. A $^{60}$Fe sample produced at the Paul-Scherrer-Institut was activated with thermal and epithermal neutrons at the research reactor at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universit\\"at Mainz. The thermal neutron capture cross section has been measured for the first time to $\\sigma_{\\text{th}}=0.226 \\ (^{+0.044}_{-0.049})$ b. An upper limit of $\\sigma_{\\text{RI}} < 0.50$ b could be determined for the resonance integral.

  18. A 50/50 electronic beam splitter in graphene nanoribbons as a building block for electron optics

    Lima, Leandro R. F.; Hernández, Alexis R.; Pinheiro, Felipe A.; Lewenkopf, Caio

    2016-12-01

    Based on the investigation of the multi-terminal conductance of a system composed of two graphene nanoribbons, in which one is on top of the other and rotated by {{60}\\circ} , we propose a setup for a 50/50 electronic beam splitter that neither requires large magnetic fields nor ultra low temperatures. Our findings are based on an atomistic tight-binding description of the system and on the Green function method to compute the Landauer conductance. We demonstrate that this system acts as a perfect 50/50 electronic beam splitter, in which its operation can be switched on and off by varying the doping (Fermi energy). We show that this device is robust against thermal fluctuations and long range disorder, as zigzag valley chiral states of the nanoribbons are protected against backscattering. We suggest that the proposed device can be applied as the fundamental element of the Hong-Ou-Mandel interferometer, as well as a building block of many devices in electron optics.

  19. Ionization energies of the C60 fullerene and its hydrogenated derivatives C60H18 and C60H36 determined by electron ionization

    2004-04-01

    Modification of a method for processing positive ion ionization efficiency curves of polyatomic molecules, as developed earlier by Märk and coworkers, has been described. Based on the method, the first, second, and third ionization energies of C60 have been re-examined and found to be in excellent agreement with the most reliable literature data. The ionization energies for C60H18 and C60H36 have been measured for the first time and were established as 7.3+/-0.3 eV and 7.01+/-0.25 eV, respectively. Although the appearance energy of C60H362+ (18.7+/-0.2 eV) has been determined to be lower than that of C602+ (18.98+/-0.35 eV), the reverse scenario is true for the second ionization energies of C60H36 and C60.

  1. 50 years of snow stratigraphy observations

    Johansson, C.; Pohjola, V.; Jonasson, C.; Challagan, T. V.

    2012-04-01

    With start in autumn 1961 the Abisko Scientific Research Station (ASRS) located in the Swedish sub Arctic has performed snow stratigraphy observations, resulting in a unique 50 year long time series of data. The data set contains grain size, snow layer hardness, grain compactness and snow layer dryness, observed every second week during the winter season. In general snow and snow cover are important factors for the global radiation budget, and the earth's climate. On a more local scale the layered snowpack creates a relatively mild microclimate for Arctic plants and animals, and it also determines the water content of the snowpack (snow water equivalent) important for e.g. hydrological applications. Analysis of the snow stratigraphy data, divided into three consecutive time periods, show that there has been a change in the last time period. The variable most affected is the snow layer hardness, which shows an increase in hardness of the snowpack. The number of observations with a very hard snow layer/ice at ground level increased three-fold between the first two time periods and the last time period. The thickness of the bottom layer in the snowpack is also highly affected. There has been a 60% increase in layers thinner than 10 cm in the last time period, resulting in a mean reduction in the thickness of the bottom layer from 14 cm to 11 cm. Hence the living conditions for plants and animals at the ground surface have been highly changed. The changes in the snowpack are correlated to an increased mean winter air temperature. Thus, continued increasing, or temperatures within the same ranges as in the last time period, is likely to create harder snow condition in the future. These changes are likely to affect animals that live under the snow such as lemmings and voles or animals that graze sub-Arctic vegetation in winter (e.g. reindeer that would potentially require increased supplementary feeding that incurs financial costs to Sami reindeer herders). Any decrease

  2. [Reversing effects of emodin on multidrug resistance in resistant HL-60/ADR cells].

    2013-12-01

    This study was aimed to investigate the reversing effects of emodin on multidrug resistance (MDR) in resistant HL-60/ADR cells, and to explore the underlying mechanisms. The MTT assay was used to assess the chemoresistance of HL-60/ADR cells to emodin and 8 chemotherapeutic agents commonly used in clinic. The reversal effects of emodin on MDR of HL-60/ADR cells were also evaluated by MTT method. DNA ploidy analysis and DNA Ladder assay were used to detect apoptosis-induced effects on HL-60/ADR cells via the adriamycin (ADR) and emodin combination. The expression changes of the drug resistance-associated genes and proteins were detected by RT-PCR and Western Blot respectively. The intracellular accumulation and subcellular distribution of ADR and DNR were measured by flow cytometry and confocal laser scanning microscopy. The results showed that emodin inhibited HL-60/ADR cell proliferation with an average IC50 value of 24.09 ± 1.72 µmol/L, which was similar to that of the parental HL-60 cells (average IC50 = 23.18 ± 0.87 µmol/L). HL-60/ADR cells were resistant to a variety of chemotherapeutic agents, such as ADR, DNR, VP16, VCR,Ara-C, HHT, MTZ and THP. The reversal multiple were between 1.58 and 4.12 after the treatment with low concentration of emodin combined with the above mentioned different agents. The combination of ADR with emodin showed the best reversal effects, and the typical hypodiploid peak (apoptotic peak) and DNA ladder could be detected after the co-treatment.In addition, emodin down-regulated the mRNA and protein expression levels of MRP1, TOPOIIβ, GST π and BCL-2. Furthermore, the addition of emodin enhanced ADR and DNR intracellular accumulation and subcellular distribution in HL-60/ADR cells in dose-dependent manner. It is concluded that the emodin shows reversing effects on the multidrug resistant HL-60/ADR cells, possibly via decreasing the expression levels of drug resistance-associated genes, increasing the intracellular accumulation of

    Hartmann, B.; Buendia, Inmaculada M.; Baun, Anders

    2011-01-01

    While studies of the potential human and environmental effects of C60 and its derivatives are emerging in the scientific literature, the environmental fate of C60 is still largely unknown. In this study, aged aqueous suspensions of C60 (nC60) were investigated in the respirometric OECD test...... for ready biodegradability. Two suspensions of nC60 were prepared by stirring and aged under indirect exposure to sunlight for 36 months, which resulted in relatively stable suspensions with a dark-brown colour. The suspended nC60 could not be extracted into toluene and indicating that the particles were...... mineralized within a few days. Even with this additional carbon source no mineralization of nC60 was observed after an additional 20 days. Based on these results, aged nC60 can be classified as not ready biodegradable according to the OECD test procedure....

  8. Important role of alkali atoms in A4C60

    Gunnarsson, O.; Erwin, S. C.; Koch, E.; Martin, R. M.

    1997-01-01

    We show that hopping via the alkali atoms plays an important role for the t1u band of A4C60 (A=K, Rb), in strong contrast to A3C60. Thus the t1u band is broadened by more than 40 % by the presence of the alkali atoms. The difference between A4C60 and A3C60 is in particular due to the less symmetric location of the alkali atoms in A4C60.

    2016-01-01

    Although several heat shock proteins have been investigated in relation to tooth development, no available information is available about the spatial and temporal expression pattern of heat shock protein 60 (Hsp 60). To characterize Hsp 60 expression in the structures of the developing tooth germ, we used Western blotting, immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization. Hsp 60 was present in high amounts in the inner and outer enamel epithelia, enamel knot (EK) and stratum intermedium (SI). Hsp 60 also appeared in odontoblasts beginning in the bell stage. To obtain data on the possible effect of Hsp 60 on isolated lower incisors from mice, we performed in vitro culturing. To investigate the effect of exogenous Hsp 60 on the cell cycle during culturing, we used the 5-bromo-2- deoxyuridine (BrdU) incorporation test on dental cells. Exogenously administered Hsp 60 caused bluntness at the apical part of the 16.5-day-old tooth germs, but it did not influence the proliferation rate of dental cells. We identified the expression of Hsp 60 in the developing tooth germ, which was present in high concentrations in the inner and outer enamel epithelia, EK, SI and odontoblasts. High concentration of exogenous Hsp 60 can cause abnormal morphology of the tooth germ, but it did not influence the proliferation rate of the dental cells. Our results suggest that increased levels of Hsp 60 may cause abnormalities in the morphological development of the tooth germ and support the data on the significance of Hsp during the developmental processes.

  10. Structure and electronic properties of alkali-C60 nanoclusters.

    Rabilloud, Franck

    2010-07-08

    I investigated the structural and electronic properties of both Na(n)C(60) and Li(n)C(60) (n alkali atoms over the C(60) surface is analyzed. The hypotheses for either an homogeneous coating of the C(60) surface by the alkali atoms or the growth of an alkali droplet not wetting the fullerene surface are discussed. Lithium atoms are found to coat homogeneously the fullerene on the C(60) surface via pentagonal sites, contrary to sodium atoms, which prefer to form 4-atom islands on the surface. The charge transfer, the energetics, and the dipole moments are discussed in relation with available results. The adsorption of alkali atoms on the C(60) surface considerably enhances the capacity of C(60) to accept electrons. The arrangement of lithium atoms seems more favorable for the hydrogen storage than that of sodium atoms.

    2003-01-01

    AIM: To express Hsp60 protein of H pylori by a constructed vector and to evaluate its immunogenicity.METHODS: Hsp60 DNA was amplified by PCR and inserted into the prokaryotie expression vector pET-22b (+), which was transformed into BL21 (DE3) E. coli strain to express recombinant protein. Immunogenicity of expressed Hsp60 protein was evaluated with animal experiments.RESULTS: DNA sequence analysis showed Hsp60 DNA was the same as GenBank's research. Hsp60 recombinant protein accounted for 27.2 % of the total bacterial protein,and could be recognized by the serum from H pylori infected patients and Balb/c mice immunized with Hsp60 itself.CONCLUSION: Hsp60 recombinant protein might become a potential vaccine for controlling and treating H pylori infection.

  12. Randomized trial comparing episiotomies with Braun-Stadler episiotomy scissors and EPISCISSORS-60®

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available Ganpat Sawant, Divya Kumar Dr DY Patil Medical College and Hospital, Nerul, Navi Mumbai, India Introduction: Episiotomy angle is a crucial factor in causation of obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASIS, which are the major cause of female bowel incontinence. Sutured episiotomies angled too close to the midline (<30 degree or too far away from the midline (.60 degree fail to unload the perineum sufficiently and predispose to OASIS. A 25-degree post-delivery episiotomy suture angle has a 10% risk of OASIS while 45-degree episiotomy is associated with 0.5% risk. To account for perineal distension at crowning, a 60-degree episiotomy incision is required to achieve 43–50 degree suture angles. We compared episiotomy suture angles with commonly used Braun-Stadler episiotomy scissors with the new fixed angle EPISCISSORS-60®. Methods: Ethical approval was obtained. A prospective cluster randomization design was chosen. Thirty-one patients were required in each group for a 12-degree difference with power at 90% and 5% significance. Sutured episiotomy angles and post-delivery linear distance from caudal end of the sutured episiotomy to the anus were measured with protractors and rulers. Two-tailed t-tests were used to compare the two groups. Results: Thirty-one nulliparae had episiotomies with EPISCISSORS-60®, 32 with Braun-Stadler. Mean age (25 versus 24.8 years was similar. EPISCISSORS-60® episiotomies were angled 12 degrees more laterally away from the anus compared to Braun-Stadler (40.6 degrees, 95% confidence interval [CI] ±2, interquartile range [IQR] 35–45 versus 28.3 degrees, 95% CI ±2, IQR 25–30, P<0.0001. The post-delivery linear distance from caudal end of the sutured episiotomy to the anus was 15 mm more with the EPISCISSORS-60® compared to Braun-Stadler (35 mm, 95% CI ±2.2, IQR =30–39 versus 19.5; 95% CI ±1.3, IQR =14.75–22.25 P<0.0001. EPISCISSORS-60® episiotomies measured longer (47 mm versus 40 mm, P<0.0001. There were

  13. The Magnetic and Metallic Degenerate G77-50

    Farihi, J; Napiwotzki, R; Koester, D

    2011-01-01

    An accumulation of multi-epoch, high-resolution, optical spectra reveal that the nearby star G77-50 is a very cool DAZ white dwarf externally polluted by Mg, Fe, Al, Ca, and possibly Na, Cr, Mn. The metallic and hydrogen absorption features all exhibit multiple components consistent with Zeeman splitting in a B~120kG magnetic field. Ultraviolet through infrared photometry combined with trigonometric parallaxes yield Teff=5310K, M=0.60Msun, and a cooling age of 5.2Gyr. The space velocity of the white dwarf suggests possible membership in the Galactic thick disk, consistent with an estimated total age of 8.6Gyr. G77-50 is spectrally similar to G165-7 and LHS 2534; these three cool white dwarfs comprise a small group exhibiting both metals and magnetism. The photospheric metals indicate accretion of rocky debris similar to that contained in asteroids, but the cooling age implies a remnant planetary system should be stable. A possibility for G77-50 and similarly old, polluted white dwarfs is a recent stellar enco...

    Releases of C{sub 60} fullerenes to the environment will increase with the growth of nanotechnology. Assessing the potential risks of manufactured C{sub 60} requires an understanding of how its prevalence in the environment compares to that of natural and incidental C{sub 60}. This work describes the characterization of incidental C{sub 60} present in aerosols generated by combustion of five common fuels: coal, firewood, diesel, gasoline, and propane. C{sub 60} was found in exhaust generated by all five fuels; the highest concentrations in terms of mass of C{sub 60} per mass of particulate matter were associated with diesel and coal. Individual aerosols from these combustion processes were examined by transmission electron microscopy. No relationship was found between C{sub 60} content and either the separation of graphitic layers (lamellae) within the particles, nor the curvature of those lamellae. Estimated global emissions of incidental C{sub 60} to the atmosphere from coal and diesel combustion range from 1.6 to 6.3 t yr{sup −1}, depending upon combustion conditions. These emissions may be similar in magnitude to the total amount of manufactured C{sub 60} produced on an annual basis. Consequent loading of incidental C{sub 60} to the environment may be several orders of magnitude higher than has previously been modeled for manufactured C{sub 60}. - Highlights: • Exhaust of common fuels (coal, diesel, etc.) analyzed via chromatography for C{sub 60.} • All five fuels tested produced C{sub 60} in aerosols in mass fractions up to several ppm. • Emissions of incidental C{sub 60} may be comparable to the total amount manufactured.

    Arsenic trioxide (As(2)O(3)) is established as one of the most effective drugs for treatment of patients with acute promyelocytic leukemia, as well as other types of malignant tumors. However, HL-60 cells are resistant to As(2)O(3), and little is known about the underlying resistance mechanism for As(2)O(3) and its biomethylation products, namely, monomethylarsonous acid (MMA(III)) on the treatment of tumors. In the present study, we investigated the molecular mechanisms underlying iAs(III) and its intermediate metabolite MMA(III)-induced anticancer effects in the HL-60 cells. Here, we show that the HL-60 cells exhibit resistance to inorganic iAs(III) (IC(50) = 10 μM), but are relatively sensitive to its intermediate MMA(III) (IC(50) = 3.5 μM). Moreover, we found that the multidrug resistance protein 1 (MRP1), but not MRP2, is expressed in HL-60 cells, which reduced the intracellular arsenic accumulation, and conferred resistance to inorganic iAs(III) and MMA(III). Pretreatment of HL-60 with MK571, an inhibitor of MRP1, significantly increased iAs(III) and MMA(III)-induced cytotoxicity and arsenic accumulations, suggesting that the expression of MRP1/4 may lead to HL-60 cells resistance to trivalent arsenic compounds.

    HL60RG, a subline of human promyelocytic leukemia HL60 cells, has a increased growth rate than their parental cells. To gain information of the mechanisms involved in the increased growth rate of HL60RG, we performed a multiplex fluorescence in situ hybridization (M-FISH), standard cytogenetics analysis (G-banding) and genome scan using 10K SNP mapping array on both cell types. Characteristic genomic alterations in HL60RG cells were identified including uniparental disomy (UPD) of chromosome 1, and hemizygous deletion in 10p and 11p. However, no such defects were observed in HL60 cells. Changes in gene expression in HL60RG cells were determined using expression arrays (Affymetrix GeneChip, HU133A). Candidate genes associated with the rapid growth of HL60RG cells were identified. Two tumor necrosis factor receptors, TNFRSF1B (type II tumor necrosis factor-α receptor) and TNFRSF8 (also known as a tumor marker CD30), which are adjacently located on chromosome 1 showed opposing changes in gene expression in HL60RG cells-over-expression of TNFRSF8 and repression of TNFRSF1B. Differences in the DNA methylation status in the transcriptional regulatory regions of both genes between HL60 and HL60RG was detected by a methylation-specific PCR assay. In conclusion, alterations in chromosome and gene expression in HL60RG may be associated with increased growth rate.

    Composite C60-LB films were fabricated by the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique, their micro- structures, micro- and macro-tribological properties were investigated using atomic force microscope/ friction force microscope (AFM/FFM). The results showed that in the confined C60-LB films there were two kinds of structures for the special C60 assembly: grain diameters of one kind were in the range of 150-230 nm; the other was smaller than 20 nm. Mi-cro-tribological studies showed that topographical images of tiny C60 aggregates (<20 nm) were con-sistent with their frictional ones very well, namely, low friction occurred on tiny C60 aggregates compared with fatty chains LB monolayer, and 'Micro-rolling effect' was apparent; but for big large ones frictional forces were relatively high and 'ratchet mechanism' was seen apparently. Macro-tribological data proved large C60 aggregates had wear resistance and load-carrying capacities and anti-wear lives for com- posite C60-LB films were prolonged greatly with dis-persibility of C60 improved and its grain diameter re-duced. Tiny C60 aggregates were mainly the lubricating agents. Friction coefficients of composite C60-LB films gradually reduced with loads increasing having the same friction coefficient-load relations with boundary lubrication films.
