  5. 275 C Downhole Microcomputer System

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Chris Hutchens; Hooi Miin Soo


    An HC11 controller IC and along with serial SRAM and ROM support ICs chip set were developed to support a data acquisition and control for extreme temperature/harsh environment conditions greater than 275 C. The 68HC11 microprocessor is widely used in well logging tools for control, data acquisition, and signal processing applications and was the logical choice for a downhole controller. This extreme temperature version of the 68HC11 enables new high temperature designs and additionally allows 68HC11-based well logging tools and MWD tools to be upgraded for high temperature operation in deep gas reservoirs, The microcomputer chip consists of the microprocessor ALU, a small boot ROM, 4 kbyte data RAM, counter/timer unit, serial peripheral interface (SPI), asynchronous serial interface (SCI), and the A, B, C, and D parallel ports. The chip is code compatible with the single chip mode commercial 68HC11 except for the absence of the analog to digital converter system. To avoid mask programmed internal ROM, a boot program is used to load the microcomputer program from an external mask SPI ROM. A SPI RAM IC completes the chip set and allows data RAM to be added in 4 kbyte increments. The HC11 controller IC chip set is implemented in the Peregrine Semiconductor 0.5 micron Silicon-on-Sapphire (SOS) process using a custom high temperature cell library developed at Oklahoma State University. Yield data is presented for all, the HC11, SPI-RAM and ROM. The lessons learned in this project were extended to the successful development of two high temperature versions of the LEON3 and a companion 8 Kbyte SRAM, a 200 C version for the Navy and a 275 C version for the gas industry.

  10. Properties of an $\\alpha$ particle in a Bohrium $270$ Nucleus under the Generalized Symmetric Woods-Saxon Potential

    CERN Document Server

    Lütfüoğlu, B C


    The energy eigenvalues and the wave functions of an $\\alpha$ particle in a Bohrium $270$ nucleus were calculated by solving Schr\\"odinger equation for Generalized Symmetric Woods-Saxon potential. Using the energy spectrum by excluding and including the quasi-bound eigenvalues, entropy, internal energy, Helmholtz energy, and specific heat, as functions of reduced temperature were calculated. Stability and emission characteristics are interpreted in terms of the wave and thermodynamic functions. The kinetic energy of a decayed $\\alpha$ particle was calculated using the quasi-bound states, which is found close to the experimental value.

  9. 275 C Downhole Switched-Mode Power Supply

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Chris Hutchens; Vijay Madhuravasal


    A vee-square (V2) control based controller IC is developed for a switch mode power supply capable of operating at extreme temperature/harsh environment conditions. A buck type regulator with silicon carbide power junction field effect transistors (JFET) as power devices is used to analyze the performance of controller. Special emphases are made on the analog sub-blocks--voltage reference, operational transconductance amplifier and comparator as individual building blocks. Transformer coupled gate drives and high temperature operable magnetic cores and capacitors are identified and tested for use in the design. Conventional ceramic chip packaging of ICs combined with lead carrier type mounting of passive filter components is introduced for hybrid packaging of the complete product. The developed SMPS is anticipated to support the operation of down-hole microcontrollers and other electronics devices that require low/medium power filtered dc inputs over an operating temperature of 275 C.

    Full Text Available Aim: To report the author's experience in augmentation phalloplasty by studying a retrospective series of patients who underwent fat grafting for girth enhancement or a composite technique based on suspensory ligament release plus fat grafting performed simultaneously. Methods: The author analyzed retrospectively the outcomes of 275 augmentation phalloplasty procedures performed in 259 patients until November 2013. Of these, 127 correspond to girth augmentation with fat grafting and 148 to composite augmentation phalloplasty (girth augmentation with fat grafting and length improvement by suspensory ligament release. In 16 patients girth and length enhancement were performed in two separate procedures. Results: Of this 259 patients, 87 underwent postoperative follow-up for at least 12 months and 160 patients underwent follow-up for at least 6 months. The average increase in circumference at 6 months was 1.7 cm (1.57 cm at 12 months and the average increase in length of 3.2 cm (3.1 cm at 12 months. Twenty-two patients showed minor complications that were treated without sequelae and without influencing the final result. Conclusion: By judicious use of currently available techniques, it is possible to achieve stable increases in penis size. The use of composite techniques provides better final results than the use of individual techniques performed alone due to the increase of the actual volume of the penis. An adequate informed consent is essential in all patients due to the unrealistic expectations expressed by the majority of them.

  11. East Weddell Sea echinoids from the JR275 expedition

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Thomas Saucède


    Full Text Available Information regarding the echinoids in this dataset is based on the Agassiz Trawl (AGT and epibenthic sledge (EBS samples collected during the British Antarctic Survey cruise JR275 on the RRS James Clark Ross in the austral summer 2012. A total of 56 (1 at the South Orkneys and 55 in the Eastern Weddell Sea Agassiz Trawl and 18 (2 at the South Orkneys and 16 in the Eastern Weddell Sea epibenthic sledge deployments were performed at depths ranging from ~280 to ~2060 m. This presents a unique collection for the Antarctic benthic biodiversity assessment of an important group of benthic invertebrates. In total 487 specimens belonging to six families, 15 genera, and 22 morphospecies were collected. The species richness per station varied between one and six. Total species richness represents 27% of the 82 echinoid species ever recorded in the Southern Ocean (David et al. 2005b, Pierrat et al. 2012, Saucède et al. 2014. The Cidaridae (sub-family Ctenocidarinae and Schizasteridae are the two most speciose families in the dataset. They comprise seven and nine species respectively. This is illustrative of the overall pattern of echinoid diversity in the Southern Ocean where 65% of Antarctic species belong to the families Schizasteridae and Cidaridae (Pierrat et al. 2012.

    LI Lei; JIANG Wei; WANG Jiyao


    In order to analyze the causative drugs,clinical manifestation and pathological characteristics of the patients with acute drug-induced liver disease,from January 2000 to December 2005,275 cases diagnosed as acute druginduced liver diseases according to Maria Criterion and hospitalized in Zhongshan Hospital of Fudan University were retrospectively reviewed.Each was determined by drug history,clinical symptoms and signs,laboratory tests and therapeutic effects.In 41 cases,the diagnosis was confirmed by liver biopsy.The proportion of acute drug-induced liver disease among all of the acute liver injuries was annually increased.The most common drugs which induced acute liver injuries were traditional Chinese herb medicine (23.3 %,64/275 cases),antineoplastics (15.3%,42/275),hormones and other immunosuppressant agents (13.8%,38/275),antihypertensive drugs and other cardiovascular drugs (10.2 %,28/275),NSAIDs (8.7%,24/275) respectively.Hepatocellular injury was the predominant type in these cases (132 cases,48%).The principal clinical manifestation included nausea (54.8%),fatigue (50.2%),jaundice (35.6%).27.9% patients were asymptomatic.Most patients were cured with good prognosis.The total effective rate was 94.2% after treatment.The clinicians should pay attention to the prevention,diagnosis and therapy of drug-induced liver disease.

  16. Progress of 275 kV-3 kA YBCO HTS cable (United States)

    Yagi, M.; Mukoyama, S.; Amemiya, N.; Ishiyama, A.; Wang, X.; Aoki, Y.; Saito, T.; Ohkuma, T.; Maruyama, O.


    A 275 kV-3 kA high temperature superconducting (HTS) cable has been developed in the Materials & Power Applications of Coated Conductors (M-PACC) project. AC loss reduction of a two-layer HTS conductor was undertaken by removing the edges of YBCO tapes with low critical current density. The HTS conductor using these tapes was fabricated, and low loss of 0.235 W/m at 3 kA rms was achieved. The 275 kV-3 kA cable was designed, and the 2 m model cables were fabricated. This cable had 325 mm 2 copper stranded former inside the HTS conductor and a 310 mm 2 copper shield layer on the HTS shield layer for over-current protection. These cables withstood an over-current of 63.0 kA for 0.6 s, which is the worst situation for 275 kV systems. The partial discharge (PD) and V- t characteristics of a liquid nitrogen (LN 2)/polypropylene (PP) laminated paper composite insulation system have been integrated into the design of the insulation for the 275 kV cable. The results revealed that the PD inception stress (PDIE) did not depend on the insulation thickness, and that lifetime indices of V- t characteristics at PD inception were as high as about 80-100.

  20. The class I-specific HDAC inhibitor MS-275 modulates the differentiation potential of mouse embryonic stem cells

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gianluigi Franci


    Exploitation of embryonic stem cells (ESC for therapeutic use and biomedical applications is severely hampered by the risk of teratocarcinoma formation. Here, we performed a screen of selected epi-modulating compounds and demonstrate that a transient exposure of mouse ESC to MS-275 (Entinostat, a class I histone deacetylase inhibitor (HDAC, modulates differentiation and prevents teratocarcinoma formation. Morphological and molecular data indicate that MS-275-primed ESCs are committed towards neural differentiation, which is supported by transcriptome analyses. Interestingly, in vitro withdrawal of MS-275 reverses the primed cells to the pluripotent state. In vivo, MS275-primed ES cells injected into recipient mice give only rise to benign teratomas but not teratocarcinomas with prevalence of neural-derived structures. In agreement, MS-275-primed ESC are unable to colonize blastocysts. These findings provide evidence that a transient alteration of acetylation alters the ESC fate.

  1. Discovery of Multi-target Anticancer Agents Based on HDAC Inhibitor MS-275 and 5-FU. (United States)

    Jiang, Yuqi; Li, Xiaoguang; Li, Xiaoyang; Hou, Jinning; Ding, Yongzheng; Zhang, Jian; Xu, Wenfang; Zhang, Yingjie


    Histone deacetylases (HDACs) inhibitors have multiple effects targeting the cancer cells and have become one of the promising cancer therapeutics with possibly broad applicability. Combination of HDAC inhibitors with the cytotoxic fluorouracil (5-FU) showed additive and synergistic effects both in vitro and in vivo. To explore the possibility in cancer therapy of a bivalent agent that combines two bioactive groups within a single molecular architecture, we designed and synthesized new dual-acting compounds by combining the bioactive fragment of MS-275, a clinical HDACs inhibitor, with cytotoxic agent 5-FU. The target compounds 9a and 9b showed comparable HDACs inhibition with MS-275 and moderate antiproliferative acitivities against six cancer cells lines.

  2. Formation and early hydration characteristics of C2.75B1.25A3$ in binary system of C2.75B1.25A3$-C2S

    Wang, Shoude


    Full Text Available C2.75B1.25A3$ (2.75CaO•1.25BaO• 3Al2O3• SO3 is one of the important minerals and it govern-directly the early-strength of belite-barium calcium sulphoaluminate cement. In this paper a binary system C2.75B1.25A3$-C2S is selected to investigate the formation of C2.75B1.25A3$. In the range of 1100 °C–1200 °C, the earlier formed C2S hinders the formation of C2.75B1.25A3$. On the contrary, when the temperature is in the range of 1200 °C–1350 °C, the initially formed C2S could provide a surface for the nucleation of C2.75B1.25A3$ and cut down the potential barrier (?Gk* for the heterogeneous nucleation of C2.75B1.25A3$, which contributes to its formation. Moreover, at 1350 °C, the large amount of previously formed C2S benefits the extent of formation of C2.75B1.25A3$. The possible reason was that it could prevent sulfur evaporation. In early hydration age, AFm and AFt originating from C2.75B1.25A3$ hydration are found within 2 h and 12 h under 95% RH at 1 °C, respectively, whereas C2S is unhydrated at this moment.En el cemento de sulfoaluminato de calcio y bario, el C2.75B1.25A3$ (2.75CaO•1.25BaO• 3Al2 O3• SO3 es una de las principales fases, y regula directamente la resistencia inicial del cemento. En este trabajo, se ha seleccionado el sistema binario C2.75B1.25A3$-C2S para investigar la formación de C2.75B1.25A3$. En el rango de 1100 °C-1200 °C, el C2S formado anteriormente impide la formación de C2.75B1.25A3$, mientras que cuando la temperatura está entre 1200 °C-1350 °C, el C2S proporcionaría una superficie de nucleación de C2.75B1.25A3$ reduciendo la barrera de potencial (?Gk* para la nucleación heterogénea de C2.75B1.25A3$, lo que contribuye a su formación. Además, a 1350 °C, la gran cantidad de C2S formado beneficia la formación de C2.75B1.25A3$, ya que podía prevenir la evaporación del azufre. En las primeras etapas de la hidratación (entre 2 y 12h y 95% HR a 1 ºC se pueden encontrar AFM y AFt

  4. Development of Y-branch Joint for 275kV XLPE and Fluid Filled Cable (United States)

    Goto, Takeshi; Yamashita, Makoto; Sakamaki, Masatoshi

    When a new UHV substation is built in an urban region, generally, an existing underground transmission line shall be diverted and drawn into the new substation. Compared with above mentioned construction method, enormous cost reduction of switching facilities and cable construction is expected with applying a Y-Branch Joint (YJ) which is able to be a 3-way joint. The YJ has already been applied for 154kV class circuit, however, it has not been investigated for 275kV class circuit. Since both XLPE and Fluid-Filled cable are presently used in 275kV class underground cable line, an universal design YJ for both cables have been investigated. The YJ was applied a compact design which was based on our sophisticated electrical stress control technology for 500kV prefabricated type joint. Furthermore, the design was based on its prefabricated assembling technology. The YJ was verified its electrical and mechanical performance as 275kV cable joint by completion of its assembling test and a long term electrical test.

  9. Design and Evaluation of 275 kV-3 kA HTS Power Cable (United States)

    Yagi, M.; Mukoyama, S.; Mitsuhashi, T.; Jun, T.; Liu, J.; Nakayama, R.; Hayakawa, N.; Wang, X.; Ishiyama, A.; Amemiya, N.; Hasegawa, T.; Saitoh, T.; Ohkuma, T.; Maruyama, O.

    A 275 kV 3 kA high temperature superconducting (HTS) cable has been developed in the Materials & Power Applications of Coated Conductors (M-PACC) project. The cable is expected to be put to practical use as the backbone power line in the future because the capacity of 1.5 GW is about the same as overhead transmission lines. The 30 m cable has been designed on the basis of design values that had been obtained by various voltage tests, AC loss measurement tests, short circuit tests, and other elementary tests. Cable insulation was determined by the design stresses and test conditions based on IEC, JEC (Japan electrical standards), and other HTS demonstrations. This cable was also designed to withstand the short circuit test of 63 kA for 0.6 seconds and to have low losses, including AC loss and dielectric loss of 0.8 W/m at 3kA, 275 kV. Based on the design, a 30 m cable was manufactured, and short samples during this manufacturing process were confirmed to have the designed characteristics. Furukawa Electric prepared a demonstration of the 30 m cable with two terminations and a cable joint. The long-term test under a current of 3 kA, and test voltage determined from 30 years of insulation degradation has been conducted since November 2012 at Shenyang in China.

    Viola Baradari; Michael H(o)pfner; Alexander Huether; Detlef Schuppan; Hans Scherübl


    AIM: To investigate the antiproliferative effect of the histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor MS-275 on cholangiocarcinoma cells alone and in combination with conventional cytostatic drugs (gemcitabine or doxorubicin)or the novel anticancer agents sorafenib or bortezomib.METHODS: Two human bile duct adenocarcinoma cell lines (EGI-1 and TFK-1) were studied. Crystal violet staining was used for detection of cell number changes.Cytotoxicity was determined by measuring the release of the cytoplasmic enzyme lactate dehydrogenase (LDH).Apoptosis was determined by measuring the enzyme activity of caspase-3. Cell cycle status reflected by the DNA content was detected by flow cytometry.RESULTS: MS-275 treatment potently inhibited the proliferation of EGI-1 and TFK-1 cholangiocarcinoma cells by inducing apoptosis and cell cycle arrest. MS-275-induced apoptosis was characterized by activation of caspase-3, up-regulation of Bax and down-regulation of Bcl-2. Cell cycle was predominantly arrested at the G1/S checkpoint, which was associated with induction of the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p21Waf/CIP1. Furthermore,additive anti-neoplastic effects were observed when MS-275 treatment was combined with gemcitabine or doxorubicin, while combination with the multikinase inhibitor sorafenib or the proteasome inhibitor bortezomib resulted in overadditive anti-neoplastic effects.CONCLUSION: The growth of human cholangiocarcinoma cells can be potently inhibited by MS-275 alone or in combination with conventional cytostatic drugs or new,targeted anticancer agents.

  14. Lead-Free Double-Base Propellant for the 2.75 Inch Rocket Motor (United States)

    Magill, B. T.; Nauflett, G. W.; Furrow, K. W.


    The current MK 66 2.75 inch Rocket Motor double-base propellant contains the lead-based ballistic modifier LC-12-15 to achieve the desired plateau and mesa burning rate characteristics. The use of lead compounds poses a concern for the environment and for personal safety due to the metal's toxic nature when introduced into the atmosphere by propellant manufacture, rocket motor firing, and disposal. Copper beta-resorcylate (copper 2,4-di-hydroxy-benzoate) was successfully used in propellant as a simple modifier in the mid 1970's. This and other compounds have also been mixed with lead salts to obtain more beneficial ballistic results. Synthesized complexes of lead and copper compounds soon replaced the mixtures. The complexes incorporate the lead, copper lack of organic liquids, which allows for easier propellant processing. About ten years ago, the Indian Head Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), initiated an effort to develop a lead-free propellant for use in missile systems. Several lead-free propellant candidate formulations were developed. About five years ago, NSWC, in conjunction with Alliant Techsystems, Radford Army Ammunition Plant, continued ballistic modifier investigations. A four component ballistic modifier system without lead for double-base propellants that provide adequate plateau and mesa burn rate characteristics was developed and patented. The ballistic modifier's system contains bismuth subsalicylate, 1.5 percent; copper salicylate, 1.0 percent, copper stannate, 0.77 percent; and carbon black, 0.1 percent. Action time and impulse data obtained through multiple static firings indicate that the new lead-free double-base propellant, while not a match for NOSIH-AA-2, will be a very suitable replacement in the 2.75 inch Rocket Motor. Accelerated aging of the double-base propellant containing the lead-free ballistic modifier showed that it had a much higher rate of stabilizer depletion than the AA-2. A comprehensive study showed that an

    Supernova (SN) 2015bh (or SNhunt275) was discovered in NGC 2770 on 2015 February with an absolute magnitude of Mr ~ -13 mag, and was initially classified as a SN impostor. Here we present the photometric and spectroscopic evolution of SN 2015bh from discovery to late phases (~ 1 yr after). In addition, we inspect archival images of the host galaxy up to ~ 16 yr before discovery, finding a burst ~ 1 yr before discovery, and further signatures of stellar instability until late 2014. Later on, the luminosity of the transient slowly increases, and a broad light curve peak is reached after about three months. We propose that the transient discovered in early 2015 could be a core-collapse SN explosion. The pre-SN luminosity variability history, the long-lasting rise and faintness first light curve peak suggests that the progenitor was a very massive, unstable and blue star, which exploded as a faint SN because of severe fallback of material. Later on, the object experiences a sudden brightening of 3 mag, which resu...

  19. Multimodality treatment of brain metastases: an institutional survival analysis of 275 patients

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Demakas John J


    Full Text Available Abstract Background Whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT, surgical resection, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS, and combinations of the three modalities are used in the management of patients with metastatic brain tumors. We present the previously unreported survival outcomes of 275 patients treated for newly diagnosed brain metastases at Cancer Care Northwest and Gamma Knife of Spokane between 1998 and 2008. Methods The effects treatment regimen, age, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group-Performance Status (ECOG-PS, primary tumor histology, number of brain metastases, and total volume of brain metastases have on patient overall survival were analyzed. Statistical analysis was performed using Kaplan-Meier survival curves, Andersen 95% confidence intervals, approximate confidence intervals for log hazard-ratios, and multivariate Cox proportional hazard models. Results The median clinical follow up time was 7.2 months. On multivariate analysis, survival statistically favored patients treated with SRS alone when compared to patients treated with WBRT alone (p Conclusions In our analysis, patients benefited from a combined modality treatment approach and physicians must consider patient age, performance status, and primary tumor histology when recommending specific treatments regimens.

  1. The basis for fibrinogen Cedar Rapids ({gamma}R275C) fibrin network structure

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    DiOrio, J.P. [Baxter Healthcare Corp., Round Lake, IL (United States); Mosesson, M.W.; Siebenlist, K.R. [Univ. Wisconsin Medical School-Milwaukee Clinic Campus, WI (United States)] [and others


    Fibrinogen `Cedar Rapids` is a heterozygous dysfibrinogenemia characterized by delayed and abnormal fibrin polymerization. The specific molecular defect ({gamma}R275C) is relatively common, but in only one case, fibrinogen Tokyo II, has the ultrastructural basis for defective clot formation been determined. This report reflects similar structural studies on Cedar Rapids fibrinogen and fibrin. Crosslinked fibrinogen molecules and fibrils, were prepared at 1 mg/ml in the presence of factor XIIIa (100 u/ml). When {gamma} chains had become {approximately}10 to 20% crosslinked to {gamma} dimers, samples were diluted with Hepes buffered saline, pH 7, to a fibrinogen concentrated of 5 to 10 {mu}g/ml. Three {mu}l was then injected into 3 {mu}l buffer on a carbon-coated EM grid, the specimen allowed to attach for one minute, fluid-exchanged several times with 150 mM NH{sub 4} acetate solution, frozen in liquid nitrogen, freeze-dried, and imaged at the Brookhaven STEM facility using a 40 kv probe focused at 0.25 nm. Fibrin for scanning EM (SEM) was formed directly on carbon-formvar coated gold grids. Clots that had formed overnight were fixed with 2.5% glutaraldehyde in 0.1 M Hepes, pH 7 buffer containing 0.2% tannic acid, washed with buffer, dehydrated, CO{sub 2} critical point dried, coated with 7.5 nm platinum, and imaged in a JOEL Field Emission SEM operated at 5 kV.

  2. Eleven-Year Retrospective Survival Study of 275 Veneered Lithium Disilicate Single Crowns. (United States)

    Simeone, Piero; Gracis, Stefano


    The aim of the present clinical retrospective study was to evaluate the long-term survival and clinical performance of veneered lithium disilicate single restorations in anterior and posterior areas after up to 11 years. Following a rigid protocol, 275 lithium disilicate single crowns (35 IPS Empress II and 240 e.max Press) were cemented over 11 years, in 106 patients, using an adhesive technique; of these 106 were anterior (38.5%) and 169 posterior (61.5%) teeth. Teeth receiving endodontic therapy and composite reconstruction (50%) and teeth with preexisting metalceramic crowns, called prosthetic retreatments (PR; 65%), were included as well. Of the 106 patients enrolled in the study, 25 (23.5%) were diagnosed with bruxism habits, and 7 of these patients (6.6% of all patients) received full-mouth single lithium disilicate restorations (FMR). The exclusion criteria for this retrospective clinical study were: monolithic lithium disilicate crowns, teeth with cast post and cores, implant-supported all-ceramic crowns, active periodontitis, and/or poor oral hygiene. Clinical reevaluation was performed by the clinicians who prepared and luted them during maintenance appointments between January 2012 and October 2013. Number of restoration failures and characteristics of failures were recorded. Marginal adaptation and marginal discoloration were evaluated based on the Cvar-Ryge criteria. The overall cumulative survival rate was 98.2%. The failures recorded were the result of either mechanical failure or debonding. Five crowns failed mechanically-three because of chipping and two because of core fracture-and were replaced. None of the failed crowns was associated with the bruxers with FMR. A total of 15 crowns debonded (5.5% of all crowns); however, 11 belonged to the same patient who had endodontically treated and reconstructed abutments. In this retrospective clinical evaluation of up to 132 months, veneered lithium disilicate single crowns had a low failure rate.

  3. Rotator cuff tears: assessment with MR arthrography in 275 patients with arthroscopic correlation

    Waldt, S.; Bruegel, M.; Mueller, D.; Holzapfel, K.; Rummeny, E.J.; Woertler, K. [Technische Universitaet Muenchen, Department of Radiology, Munich (Germany); Imhoff, A.B. [Technische Universitaet Muenchen, Department of Sports Orthopedics, Munich (Germany)


    We assessed the diagnostic performance of magnetic resonance (MR) arthrography in the diagnosis of articular-sided partial-thickness and full-thickness rotator cuff tears in a large symptomatic population. MR arthrograms obtained in 275 patients including a study group of 139 patients with rotator cuff tears proved by arthroscopy and a control group of 136 patients with arthroscopically intact rotator cuff tendons were reviewed in random order. MR imaging was performed on a 1.0 T system (Magnetom Expert, Siemens). MR arthrograms were analyzed by two radiologists in consensus for articular-sided partial-thickness and full-thickness tears of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, and subscapularis tendons. At arthroscopy, 197 rotator cuff tears were diagnosed, including 105 partial-thickness (93 supraspinatus, nine infraspinatus, three subscapularis) and 92 full-thickness (43 supraspinatus, 20 infraspinatus, 29 subscapularis) tendon tears. For full-thickness tears, sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy were 96%, 99%, and 98%, respectively, and for partial tears 80%, 97%, and 95%, respectively. False negative and positive assessments in the diagnosis of articular-sided partial-thickness tears were predominantly [78% (35/45)] observed with small articular-sided (Ellman grade1) tendon tears. MR arthrography is highly accurate in the diagnosis of full-thickness rotator cuff tears and is accurate in the diagnosis of articular-sided partial-thickness tears. Limitations in the diagnosis of partial-thickness tears are mainly restricted to small articular-sided tears (Ellman grade 1) due to difficulties in differentiation between fiber tearing, tendinitis, synovitic changes, and superficial fraying at tendon margins.

  4. A novel presenilin 1 mutation (Ala275Val) as cause of early-onset familial Alzheimer disease. (United States)

    Luedecke, Daniel; Becktepe, Jos S; Lehmbeck, Jan T; Finckh, Ulrich; Yamamoto, Raina; Jahn, Holger; Boelmans, Kai


    Mutations in the presenilin 1 (PS1) gene (PSEN1) are associated with familial Alzheimer disease (FAD). Here, we report on a 50-year-old patient presenting with progressive deterioration of his short-term memory and a family history of early-onset dementia. Diagnostic workup included a neuropsychological examination, structural magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers including total tau, phosphorylated tau, and Aβ42 levels, as well as sequencing relevant fragments of the genes PSEN1, PSEN2, and APP. Additionally, we were able to obtain archival paraffin-embedded cerebellar tissue from the patient's father for cosegregation analysis. Clinical, neuropsychological and MR imaging data were indicative of early-onset Alzheimer disease. Furthermore, CSF biomarkers showed a typical pattern for Alzheimer disease. DNA sequencing revealed a heterozygous nucleotide transition (c.824C>T) in exon 8 of PSEN1, leading to an amino acid change from alanine to valine at codon 275 (Ala275Val). The same mutation was found in an archival brain specimen of the patient's demented father, but not in a blood sample of the non-demented mother. This mutation alters a conserved residue in the large hydrophilic loop of PS1, suggesting pathogenic relevance. Cosegregegation analysis and the structural as well as the presumed functional role of the mutated and highly conserved residue suggest FAD causing characteristics of the novel PSEN1 mutation Ala275Val.

  8. A Novel Electrical Insulating Material for 275 kV High-Voltage HTS Cable with Low Dielectric Loss (United States)

    Hayakawa, N.; Nishimachi, S.; Maruyama, O.; Ohkuma, T.; Liu, J.; Yagi, M.


    In the case of high temperature superconducting (HTS) power transmission cables at high voltage operation, the electrical insulation technique in consideration of the dielectric loss reduction becomes crucial. In this paper, we focused on a Tyvek/polyethylene (PE) sheet, instead of the conventional polypropylene laminated paper (PPLP). We obtained the dielectric characteristics (epsilonr, tanδ) and partial discharge inception strength (PDIE) of PPLP, Tyvek and Tyvek/PE. We pointed out that the dielectric loss of 275 kV HTS cable with Tyvek/PE insulation will be reduced to 21 % of that with PPLP, and the total electrical loss including the AC loss will be reduced to 41 %.

  9. Gravitational quantization of exoplanet orbits in HD 40307, $\\mu$ Ara, Kepler-26, Kepler-62, and Kepler-275: Comparing predicted orbits

    CERN Document Server

    Geroyannis, Vassilis S


    According to the so-called "global polytropic model", hydrostatic equilibrium for a planetary system leads to the Lane-Emden differential equation. Solving this equation in the complex plane, we obtain polytropic spherical shells defined by succesive roots of the real part $\\mathrm{Re}(\\theta)$ of the Lane-Emden function $\\theta$. Such shells provide hosting orbits for the members of a planetary system. Within the framework of the global polytropic model, we study the exoplanet systems HD 40307, $\\mu$ Ara, Kepler-26, Kepler-62, and Kepler-275. We give emphasis on comparing our results with observations, and with orbit predictions derived from the "generalized Titius-Bode relation".

  10. "Effect of the drug transporters ABCB1, ABCC2, and ABCG2 on the disposition and brain accumulation of the taxane analog BMS-275,183". (United States)

    Marchetti, Serena; Pluim, Dick; Beijnen, Jos H; Mazzanti, Roberto; van Tellingen, Olaf; Schellens, Jan H M


    BMS-275,183 is a novel oral C-4 methyl carbonate analogue of paclitaxel. Recently, a drug-drug interaction between BMS-275,183 and benzimidazole proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) was suggested in clinical trials resulting in elevated drug exposure and toxicity. We explored whether the interaction takes place at the level of P-glycoprotein (Pgp, MDR1, ABCB1), Breast Cancer Resistance Protein (BCRP, ABCG2) and MRP2 (ABCC2) using in vitro and in vivo models. In vitro cell survival, drug accumulation, efflux and transport studies with BMS-275,183 were performed employing MDCKII (wild-type, MDR1, BCRP, MRP2) and LLCPK (wild-type and MDR1) cells. In vivo the pharmacokinetics and tissue distribution of BMS-275,183 after p.o. and i.v. administration were explored in Mdr1a/1b(-/-) and wild-type mice, in presence or absence of the PPI pantoprazole. Results In vitro, BMS-275,183 was found to be a good substrate for MDR1, a moderate substrate for MRP2 and not a substrate for BCRP. In vivo, oral bioavailability, plasma AUC0-6h and brain concentrations were significantly 1.5-, 4-, and 2-fold increased, respectively, in Mdr1a/1b(-/-) compared with wild-type mice (p < 0.001). However, oral co-administration of pantoprazole (40 mg/kg) did not alter the pharmacokinetics of BMS-275,183 in wild-type mice. Conclusions BMS-275,183 is efficiently transported by Pgp and to a lesser extent by MRP2 in vitro. Genetic deletion of Pgp significantly altered the pharmacokinetics and brain distribution of p.o. and i.v. administered BMS-275,183 in Mdr1a/1b-/- compared to wild-type mice. Oral co-administration of BMS-275,183 with pantoprazole did not affect the pharmacokinetics of BMS-275,183 in wild-type mice, suggesting no interaction with PPI at the dose employed.

  11. The relevance of uniform reporting in oral leukoplakia: definition, certainty factor and staging based on experience with 275 patients. (United States)

    The aim of the present study was to evaluate the definition of oral leukoplakia, proposed by the WHO in 2005 and taking into account a previously reported classification and staging system, including the use of a Certainty factor of four levels with which the diagnosis of leukoplakia can be established. In the period 1997-2012 a hospital-based population of 275 consecutive patients with a provisional diagnosis of oral leukoplakia has been examined. In only 176 patients of these 275 patients a firm diagnosis of leukoplakia has been established based on strict clinicopathological criteria. The 176 patients have subsequently been staged using a classification and staging system based on size and histopathologic features. For use in epidemiological studies it seems acceptable to accept a diagnosis of leukoplakia based on a single oral examination (Certainty level 1). For studies on management and malignant transformation rate the recommendation is made to include the requirement of histopathologic examination of an incisional or excisional biopsy, representing Certainty level 3 and 4, respectively. This recommendation results in the following definition of oral leukoplakia: "A predominantly white lesion or plaque of questionable behaviour having excluded, clinically and histopathologically, any other definable white disease or disorder". Furthermore, we recommend the use of strict diagnostic criteria for predominantly white lesions for which a causative factor has been identified, e.g. smokers' lesion, frictional lesion and dental restoration associated lesion.

    Ofek, E. O.; Cenko, S. B.; Shaviv, N. J.; Duggan, G.; Strotjohann, N.-L.; Rubin, A.; Kulkarni, S. R.; Gal-Yam, A.; Sullivan, M.; Cao, Y.; Nugent, P. E.; Kasliwal, M. M.; Sollerman, J.; Fransson, C.; Filippenko, A. V.; Perley, D. A.; Yaron, O.; Laher, R.


    The Palomar Transient Factory (PTF and iPTF; Law et al. 2009PASP..121.1395L; Rau et al. 2009PASP..121.1334R), using the 48inch Oschin Schmidt telescope, observed the field of SNHunt 275 starting in 2009 March. On 2013 December 12, PTF detected a new source at the location of the event, and the transient was named PTF 13efv (see Figure 1). Three images obtained between 2014 January 23 and April 25 were used as a reference. The PTF R-band photometry is listed in Table1. Most of the optical spectra were obtained with the Low Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (LRIS) on the Keck I 10m telescope, although a few spectra were also taken with the DEep Imaging Multi-Object Spectrograph (DEIMOS) on the Keck II 10m telescope, the Kast spectrograph on the Shane 3m telescope at Lick Observatory, and the Gemini-North Multiobject Spectrograph (GMOS) on the 8m Gemini-N telescope. The first spectrum was obtained during the 2013 December outburst. We used the Swift/UVOT observations of SNHunt 275, since 2008, to construct the bolometric light curve of the transient. The log of Swift-XRT observations, along with the source and background X-ray counts in the individual observations, is given in Table 5. (3 data files).

    Quantitative image analysis has been used to investigate the phase composition of gas atomized powders of a Raney type Ni catalyst precursor alloys of composition Al-27.5 at.% Ni in the powder size range 150–212 μm. We find that there are considerable variations in phase composition both between powders from the same batch and as a function distance from the particle surface within individual particles. Such variations may have significant implications for the future production and uptake of such catalysts, including the necessity for post-production crushing of gas atomized powders. Models are proposed to account for both variations. - Highlights: • The phase composition of powder Raney-Ni catalysts has been investigated. • Image analysis is used to quantify differences between and within particles. • Phase composition can vary by up to 10% between the particle surface and centre. • Differences of up to 10% in the mean composition are also found between particles.

    LAI Yue-yun; HUANG Xiao-jun


    Background Under conventional cytogenetic (CC) analysis, only 30%-50% of B cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) cases show clonal aberrations. Using fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), the percentage of patients with abnormalities rises to almost 80%, among them, the most frequent abnormalities were 13q14, 11q22, p53 deletions and trisomy 12. The aim of this study was to explore the incidence of cytogenetic changes in Chinese patients with B-CLL.Methods We used FISH methods to detect the cytogenetic features in 275 cases of B-CLL from 48 hospitals. The correlation between FISH abnormalities and clinical characteristics such as age, gender, white blood cell count,peripheral hemoglobin (Hb) level, peripheral platelet count (PLT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) level, Rai stage, Binet stage, and overall survival was analyzed, and the relationship between them and overall survival was also analyzed to evaluate their prognostic implications.Results Of the 275 patients, genetic aberrations were found in 77.8% using FISH. The frequencies of abnormalities were as follows: 13q deletion (56.4%), trisomy 12 (34.5%), p53 deletion (33.5%) and 11q22 deletion (30.5%). It was obvious that the patients with p53 deletion had lower level of Hb (P=0.001) and PLT (P=0.003) when compared to patients without p53 deletion. Significant differences were obtained in the distribution of p53 deletion according to Rai and Binet classification systems (P=0.016 and 0.008 respectively). Significant differences were also observed when the overall survival was correlated with p53 deletion (P=0.043), Rai stage (P=0.006), Binet stage (P=0.013), Hb level (P=0.004) and PLT level (P=0.010).Conclusions Chinese CLL patients have the similar frequencies of del(13q), trisomy 12, del(11q) and a higher frequency of del(17p) when compared to literatures. Del(17p) is associated with advanced stage and low levels of Hb and PLT. Patients with p53 deletion, or advanced stage probably have poor survival in

  19. Chronic DPP-IV inhibition with PKF-275-055 attenuates inflammation and improves gene expressions responsible for insulin secretion in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats. (United States)

    Akarte, Atul Sureshrao; Srinivasan, B P; Gandhi, Sonia; Sole, Sushant


    Inhibitors of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-IV), a key regulator of the actions of incretin hormones, exert antihyperglycemic effects in type 2 diabetic patients. A major question concerns the potential ability of long term DPP-IV inhibition to have beneficial disease-modifying effects, specifically to attenuate loss of pancreatic β-cell mass due to oxidative stress induced inflammation. Here, we investigated the effects of a potent and selective DPP-4 inhibitor, an analog of vildagliptin (PKF-275-055), on glycemic control, pancreatic β-cell mass, genes and proteins expressions, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and nitric oxide in an n2-STZ diabetic model of rat with defects in insulin sensitivity and secretion. To induce NIDDM, streptozotocin (STZ) 90 mg/kg was administered i.p. to a group of 2 days old pups. Diabetic rats were administered orally with vildagliptin analog PKF-275-055. Saline treated animals served as diabetic control. Significant and dose-dependent correction of postprandial hyperglycemia was observed in diabetic rats following 8 weeks of chronic therapy. Treatment with PKF-275-055 showed increased the number of insulin-positive β-cells in islets and improved the expressions of genes and proteins are responsible for insulin secretions. In addition, treatment of rats with PKF-275-055 significantly increased insulin content, glycogen content and total proteins content; and decreased the inflammatory markers i.e. nitric oxide and TNF-alpha. The present studies indicate that PKF-275-055 is a novel selective DPP-IV inhibitor having potential to reduce inflammation that might be a potential agent for type 2 diabetes.

    We present a new measurement of the time-dependent CP-violating parameters in B0 --> pi+ pi- decays using a 253 fb-1 data sample that contains 275 x 10^6 BB-bar pairs collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e+e- collider operating at the Upsilon(4S) resonance. We reconstruct one neutral B meson as a pi+ pi- CP eigenstate and identify the flavor of the accompanying B meson from its decay products. We find 666 +/- 43 B0 --> pi+ pi- events and perform an unbinned maximum likelihood fit to the distribution of the proper-time differences between the two B meson decays. The fit yields the CP-violating parameters: S_pipi = -0.67 +/- 0.16(stat) +/- 0.06(syst) and A_pipi = +0.56 +/- 0.12(stat) +/- 0.06(syst). Large direct CP-violation is observed with a significance greater than 4 standard deviations for any S_pipi value. Using isospin relations, we obtain 95.4% confidence intervals for the CKM angle phi_2 of 0 deg. < phi_2 < 19 deg. and 71 deg. < phi_2 < 180 deg.

  2. A 25-year follow-up of cognitive/behavioral therapy with 7,275 sexual offenders. (United States)

    Maletzky, Barry M; Steinhauser, Cynthia


    Outcome data are presented, grouped into 5-year cohorts, for 7,275 sexual offenders entering a cognitive/behavioral treatment program. Assessment variables included treatment completion, self-admission of covert and/or overt deviant behaviors, the presence of deviant sexual arousal, or being recharged for any sexual crime (regardless of plea or conviction). It proved possible to follow 62% for the cohort at 5 years after initiating treatment, but follow-up completion rates decreased with time. Outcomes were significantly different based on offender subtype, with child molesters and exhibitionists achieving better overall success than pedophiles or rapists. Prematurely terminating treatment was a strong indicator of committing a new sexual offense. Of interest was the general improvement of success rates over each successive 5-year period for many types of offenders. Unfortunately, failure rates remained comparatively high for rapists (20%) and homosexual pedophiles (16%), regardless of when they were treated over the 25-year period. Implications for clinical practice and future research are drawn.

    The progenitors of some supernovae (SNe) exhibit outbursts with super-Eddington luminosities prior to their final explosions. This behavior is common among Type IIn SNe, but the driving mechanisms of these precursors are not yet well understood. SNHunt 275 was announced as a possible new SN during May 2015. Here we report on pre-explosion observations of the location of this event by the Palomar Transient Factory (PTF) and report the detection of a precursor about 500 days prior to the 2015 May activity (PTF 13efv). The observed velocities in the 2015 transient and its 2013 precursor absorption spectra are low (1000-2000 km/s), so it is not clear yet if the recent activity indeed marks the final disruption of the progenitor. Regardless of the nature of this event, we use the PTF photometric and spectral observations, as well as Swift-UVOT observations, to constrain the efficiency of the radiated energy relative to the total kinetic energy of the precursor. We find that, using an order-of-magnitude estimate an...

  4. HDAC inhibitors, MS-275 and salermide, potentiates the anticancer effect of EF24 in human pancreatic cancer cells (United States)

    Yar Saglam, Atiye Seda; Yilmaz, Akin; Onen, Hacer Ilke; Alp, Ebru; Kayhan, Handan; Ekmekci, Abdullah


    Histone deacetylases (HDACs) play a major role in the regulation of chromatin structure and gene expression by changing acetylation status of histone and non-histone proteins. MS-275 (entinostat, MS) is a well-known benzamide-based HDACI and Salermide (SAL), a reverse amide compound HDACI, have antiproliferative effects on several human cancer cells. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of HDACIs (MS and SAL) alone and/or combined use with EF24 (EF), a novel synthetic curcumin analog, on human pancreatic cancer cell line (BxPC-3). In vitro, BxPC-3 cells were exposed to varying concentrations of MS, SAL with or without EF, and their effects on cell viability, acetylated Histone H3 and H4 levels, cytotoxicity, and cleaved caspase 3 levels, and cell cycle distribution were measured. The viability of BxPC-3 cells decreased significantly after treatment with EF, MS and SAL treatments. MS and SAL treatment increased the acetylation of histone H3 and H4 in a dose dependent manner. MS and SAL alone or combined with EF were increased the number of cells in G1 phase. In addition, treatment with agents significantly decreased the ratio of cell in G2/M phase. There were significant dose-dependent increases at cleaved Caspase 3 levels after MS treatment but not after SAL treatment. Our results showed that HDAC inhibitors (MS and SAL), when combined with EF, may effectively reduce pancreatic cancer cell (BxPC-3) progression and stop the cell cycle at G1 phase. Further molecular analyses are needed to understand the fundamental molecular consequences of HDAC inhibition in pancreas cancer cells. PMID:27330528

  7. GCK-MODY diabetes as a protein misfolding disease: the mutation R275C promotes protein misfolding, self-association and cellular degradation. (United States)

    Negahdar, Maria; Aukrust, Ingvild; Molnes, Janne; Solheim, Marie H; Johansson, Bente B; Sagen, Jørn V; Dahl-Jørgensen, Knut; Kulkarni, Rohit N; Søvik, Oddmund; Flatmark, Torgeir; Njølstad, Pål R; Bjørkhaug, Lise


    GCK-MODY, dominantly inherited mild hyperglycemia, is associated with more than 600 mutations in the glucokinase gene. Different molecular mechanisms have been shown to explain GCK-MODY. Here, we report a Pakistani family harboring the glucokinase mutation c.823C>T (p.R275C). The recombinant and in cellulo expressed mutant pancreatic enzyme revealed slightly increased enzyme activity (kcat) and normal affinity for α-D-glucose, and resistance to limited proteolysis by trypsin comparable with wild-type. When stably expressed in HEK293 cells and MIN6 β-cells (at different levels), the mutant protein appeared misfolded and unstable with a propensity to form dimers and aggregates. Its degradation rate was increased, involving the lysosomal and proteasomal quality control systems. On mutation, a hydrogen bond between the R275 side-chain and the carbonyl oxygen of D267 is broken, destabilizing the F260-L271 loop structure and the protein. This promotes the formation of dimers/aggregates and suggests that an increased cellular degradation is the molecular mechanism by which R275C causes GCK-MODY.

  8. Mapping spin-wave dispersions in stripe-ordered La2-xSrxNiO4 ( x=0.275 , 0.333) (United States)

    Woo, Hyungje; Boothroyd, A. T.; Nakajima, K.; Perring, T. G.; Frost, C. D.; Freeman, P. G.; Prabhakaran, D.; Yamada, K.; Tranquada, J. M.


    Using the MAPS spectrometer at the ISIS spallation source, we have measured the magnetic excitations of single-crystal samples of stripe-ordered La2-xSrxNiO4 with x=0.333 and 0.275. The full two-dimensional spin-wave dispersions were obtained using incident energies of 60 and 160 meV. To analyze the excitations, we have evaluated a spin-only Hamiltonian describing diagonal, site-centered stripes in the linear spin-wave approximation. Besides the superexchange energy J within antiferromagnetic domains, we have considered effective exchange couplings J1 and J2 across a charge stripe coupling second-neighbor Ni sites along Ni-O bond directions and along the plaquette diagonal, respectively. From least-squares fits of the model to the measurements on the x=1/3 sample at T=10K , we find that the dispersions are well described by a model using just J and J1 , but not J and J2 . Consistent with an analysis of previous measurements, we find that J is about 90% of the superexchange energy of undoped La2NiO4 and J1/J≈0.5 . The excitations observed for x=0.275 are surprisingly similar to those for x=1/3 , despite the differing magnetic-ordering wave vectors; the main difference is a broadening of the excitations for x=0.275 . For both samples, we find that one spin-wave branch has a gap of ˜20meV , confirming a previous observation for x=1/3 . We discuss the possible origin of this gap.

  11. Solidification pathways of ternary Cu62.5Fe27.5Sn10 alloy modulated through liquid undercooling and containerless processing (United States)

    Xia, Z. C.; Wang, W. L.; Wu, Y. H.; Luo, S. B.; Wei, B.


    The active control of microstructure evolution is still a challenging factor for the development of advanced immiscible alloys. Here, we make an attempt to modulate the solidification pathways of undercooled Cu62.5Fe27.5Sn10 alloy by glass fluxing and drop tube techniques. Through regulating the liquid undercooling, three types of microstructures, dendrite, dispersive structure and macrosegregation pattern, were formed under the normal gravity condition. Below the first critical undercooling of 15 K, the alloy melt displayed the normal peritectic solidification. At moderate undercoolings above 15 K, the metastable liquid phase separation took place and the solidified microstructure appeared as homogeneously dispersed structure. If undercooling further overtook the second threshold of 107 K, macrosegregation occurred and the bulk alloy separated into an Fe-rich zone and a Cu-rich zone. Under the free fall condition, the alloy droplets with the droplet diameter beyond 805 μm showed the equilibrium peritectic solidification. If the droplet diameter decreased below 805 μm, the metastable liquid phase separation was induced and the microstructural morphology of Cu62.5Fe27.5Sn10 alloy droplet evolved from dendrite into dispersive structure. Furthermore, experimental and simulated results revealed that the temperature gradient had great influence on the size distribution of Fe-rich globules.

  13. Transmission-electron-microscopy study of charge-stripe order in La1.725Sr0.275NiO4 (United States)

    Li, Jianqi; Zhu, Yimei; Tranquada, J. M.; Yamada, K.; Buttrey, D. J.


    We characterize the local structure and correlations of charge stripes in La1.725Sr0.275NiO4 using transmission-electron microscopy. We present direct evidence that the stripe modulation is indeed one-dimensional within each NiO2 plane. Furthermore, we show that individual stripes tend to be either site centered or bond centered, with a bias towards the former. The spacing between stripes often fluctuates about the mean separation, contributing to a certain degree of frustration of the approximate body-centered stacking along the c axis. These results confirm ideas inferred from previous neutron-diffraction measurements on doped nickelates, and demonstrate that charge-stripe order is quite different from the conventional concept of charge-density-wave order.

  14. A novel R275X mutation of the SLC25A15 gene in a Japanese patient with the HHH syndrome. (United States)

    Torisu, Hiroyuki; Kira, Ryutaro; Kanazawa, Naomi; Takemoto, Megumi; Sanefuji, Masafumi; Sakai, Yasunari; Tsujino, Seiichi; Hara, Toshiro


    The hyperornithinemia-hyperammonemia-homocitrullinuria (HHH) syndrome (MIM 238970) is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder caused by a deficiency of the mitochondrial ornithine transporter, one of the urea cycle components. Mutations in the SLC25A15 gene have been coupled to the HHH syndrome. We describe a Japanese female patient with the HHH syndrome due to a novel homozygous R275X SLC25A15 mutation and male sibling who presumably carried the same mutation. He exhibited slowly progressive deterioration with seizures, a gait disturbance due to polyneuropathy, episodic confusion, and died of acute encephalopathy at 34 years of age while the proband exhibited moderate mental retardation, seizures, mild spastic paraplegia, and deafness without neurological deterioration for more than 20 years. The clinical features of previously documented patients with the homozygous SLC25A15 mutation demonstrated that genotype did not simply correlate with clinical severity. The phenotypic variability might depend on other factors, such as dietary and other genetic ones.

  16. I223R mutation in influenza A(H1N1pdm09 neuraminidase confers reduced susceptibility to oseltamivir and zanamivir and enhanced resistance with H275Y.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jérome LeGoff

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Resistance of pandemic A(H1N12009 (H1N1pdm09 virus to neuraminidase inhibitors (NAIs has remained limited. A new mutation I223R in the neuraminidase (NA of H1N1pdm09 virus has been reported along with H275Y in immunocompromised patients. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of I223R on oseltamivir and zanamivir susceptibility. METHODS: The NA enzymatic characteristics and susceptibility to NAIs of viruses harbouring the mutations I223R and H275Y alone or in combination were analyzed on viruses produced by reverse genetics and on clinical isolates collected from an immunocompromised patient with sustained influenza H1N1pdm09 virus shedding and treated by oseltamivir (days 0-15 and zanamivir (days 15-25 and 70-80. RESULTS: Compared with the wild type, the NA of recombinant viruses and clinical isolates with H275Y or I223R mutations had about two-fold reduced affinity for the substrate. The H275Y and I223R isolates showed decreased susceptibility to oseltamivir (246-fold and oseltamivir and zanamivir (8.9- and 4.9-fold, respectively. Reverse genetics assays confirmed these results and further showed that the double mutation H275Y and I223R conferred enhanced levels of resistance to oseltamivir and zanamivir (6195- and 15.2-fold. In the patient, six days after initiation of oseltamivir therapy, the mutation H275Y conferring oseltamivir resistance and the I223R mutation were detected in the NA. Mutations were detected concomitantly from day 6-69 but molecular cloning did not show any variant harbouring both mutations. Despite cessation of NAI treatment, the mutation I223R persisted along with additional mutations in the NA and the hemagglutinin. CONCLUSIONS: Reduced susceptibility to both oseltamivir and zanamivir was conferred by the I223R mutation which potentiated resistance to both NAIs when associated with the H275Y mutation in the NA. Concomitant emergence of the I223R and H275Y mutations under oseltamivir treatment

  17. Reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction/pyrosequencing to characterize neuraminidase H275 residue of influenza A 2009 H1N1 virus for rapid and specific detection of the viral oseltamivir resistance marker in a clinical laboratory. (United States)

    Bao, Jian R; Huard, Thomas K; Piscitelli, Arelis E; Tummala, Praveena R; Aleemi, Virginia E; Coon, Stephanie L; Master, Ronald N; Lewinski, Michael A; Clark, Richard B


    Pandemic 2009 H1N1 is normally susceptible to oseltamivir, but variants harboring the H275Y (CAC → TAC) mutation exhibit resistance. We describe the use of a combined reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR)/pyrosequencing approach to identify the H275 residue. A total of 223 specimens were tested with this method: 216 randomly selected clinical specimens positive for 2009 H1N1 and 7 cell-culture supernatants from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC; 4 resistant, 3 susceptible 2009 H1N1 strains). The assay detected H275Y in 1 clinical respiratory sample (0.5%) and all 4 oseltamivir-resistant strains from the CDC; the remaining 215 clinical and 3 susceptible CDC specimens were wild-type. Sanger sequencing confirmed the results for 50 of 50 selected isolates. The RT-PCR/pyrosequencing method was highly specific, producing no amplicons or valid sequences from samples containing non-H1N1 viruses or bacteria. Our findings suggest that this method provides a rapid tool for H275Y detection, with high sensitivity and potential benefit for patient care.

    Comparison of the viral persistence of pandemic H1N1 (H1N1pdm) and seasonal H1N1 with or without H275Y mutation after oseltamivir therapy has not been adequately done. Virus was isolated before and on days 4-6 from the start of oseltamivir treatment for 158 cases of seasonal (2007-2008 and 2008-2009 seasons) or pandemic (2009-2010 season) H1N1 influenza. Sequence analysis was done for each season and NA inhibition assay (IC(50)) was done in the 2009-2010 season. H275Y mutation before therapy was 0% in the 2007-2008 and 2009-2010 seasons, but 100% in the 2008-2009 season. Fever and other symptoms were noticeably prolonged after oseltamivir therapy for children with H275Y mutated seasonal H1N1 (2008-2009 season), but not in patients with seasonal H1N1 without mutation (2007-2008) or H1N1pdm (2009-2010). The viral persistence rate was significantly higher for patients 15 years or younger than for those 16 years and older with H275Y mutated seasonal H1N1 (46.2% and 10.5%, respectively) or with H1N1pdm (43.3% and 11.5%, respectively). The H275Y mutation emerged after oseltamivir treatment in 2.4% (2/82) of all patients with H1N1pdm. In two children, the H275Y mutation emerged after therapy and the IC(50) increased more than 200 fold; however, the prolongation of fever was not so prominent. In conclusion, oseltamivir was effective for fever and other clinical symptoms; however, the virus persisted longer than expected after treatment in H1N1pdm influenza-infected children in the 2009-2010 season, similar to seasonal H1N1 with H275Y mutation in the 2008-2009 season.

  19. Exploiting MISR products at the full spatial resolution (275m) to document changes in land properties in and around the Kruger National Park, South Africa (United States)

    Verstraete, M. M.; Hunt, L. A.; Pinty, B.; Clerici, M.; Scholes, R. J.


    The MISR instrument on NASA's Terra platform has been acquiring data globally and continuously for almost 10 years. A wide range of atmospheric and land products are operationally generated at the LaRC ASDC, at spatial resolutions of 1.1 km or coarser. Yet, the intrinsic spatial resolution of that sensor is 275m and 12 out of the 36 spectro-directional data channels are transmitted to the ground segment at that resolution. Recent algorithmic developments have permitted us to reconstruct reasonable estimates of the other 24 channels and to account for atmospheric effects at the full original spatial resolution. Spectro-directional reflectances have been processed to characterize the anisotropy of observed land surfaces and then optimally estimate various geophysical properties of the environment such as the fluxes of radiation in and out of plant canopies, the albedo, FAPAR, etc. These detailed products allow us to investigate ecological and environmental changes in much greater spatial and thematic detail than was previously possible. The paper outlines the various methodological steps implemented and exhibits concrete results for a region of moderate size (280 by 380 km) in South Africa. Practical downstream applications of this approach include monitoring desertification and biomass burning, documenting urbanization or characterizing the phenology of vegetation.

    Objective To explore the clinical phenotype of a family affected with congenital dysfibrinogenemia and potential mutations underlying the disease.Methods Coagulation testing and hepatorenal function testing were conducted on 18 individuals fromthree generations.Plasma fibrinogen was extracted and analyzed with SDS-PAGE electrophoresis.All of the exons and flanking sequences of fibrinogen FGA,FGB,FGG genes were analyzed by PCR,and the products were subjected to Sanger sequencing.Results Hepatorenal function,prothrombin time and activated partial thromboplastin time of the proband were all normal.However,his thrombin time was significantly prolonged.Fibrinogen activity was decreased,while the concentration of antigen was in the normal range.The results of his mother,brother,and nephew were similar.DNA sequencing has confirmed that the proband,his mother,brother,and nephew have all carried a g.5877G> A mutation in the exon 8 of the FGG gene,which resultedin replacement of arginine (Arg) by histidine (His) at position 275.Conclusion The Arg275His mutation of the fibrinogen γ chain probably underlies the pathogenesis of congenital dysfibrinogenemia in this family.%目的 对1个遗传性异常纤维蛋白原血症家系进行临床表型和基因型研究,了解其分子遗传学发病机制.方法 抽取家系18名成员外周血,进行凝血指标检测;提取血浆纤维蛋白原,进行SDS-PAGE电泳;PCR扩增纤维蛋白原FGA、FGB、FGG基因所有外显子以及侧翼序列.PCR扩增产物进行测序,确定突变位点.结果 先证者肝肾功能、凝血酶原时间与活化部分凝血活酶时间均正常,但凝血酶时间显著延长.纤维蛋白原活性明显降低,而抗原浓度在正常范围,先证者母亲、弟弟及侄子的表型检测结果与其相似.基因测序结果显示,先证者及其母亲、弟弟及侄子FGG基因第8外显子发生了g.5877G>A杂合突变,导致275位的精氨酸(Arg)被组氨酸(His)取代.FGG基因第8

  1. Wide Variety of Experiments Using a Cryogen-Free 27.5 T Hybrid Magnet and a Cryogen-Free 18.1 T Superconducting Magnet (United States)

    Watanabe, K.; Awaji, S.; Oguro, H.


    A cryogen-free hybrid magnet without liquid helium for operation, generating 27.5 T in a 32 mm room temperature bore of an 8 MW water-cooled resistive insert magnet in an 8.5 T background field of a cryogen-free superconducting outsert magnet, is being operated for basic research at low temperatures down to 17 mK in combination with a dilution refrigerator. In addition, we are developing functional materials using a differential thermal analysis DTA at high temperatures up to 1473 K in high fields up to 27 T. This cryogen-free hybrid magnet will be upgraded to generate 29 T by improving the outer superconducting magnet. A cryogen-free 18.1 T superconducting magnet with a 52 mm room temperature experimental bore, consisting of a Bi2Sr2Ca2Cu3O10 (Bi2223) insert coil, has been developed using a GM-JT cryocooler. Recently, bronze-tape-laminated Bi2223 has revealed excellent irreversible stress tolerance of 250 MPa at 77 K. In addition, the critical current properties for recent Bi2223 tapes are largely improved from 200 to 400 A/cm-width at 77 K in a self-field. Therefore, the stainless steel reinforcement tape incorporated for the previous Bi2223 insert coil is no longer needed for a new Bi2223 one. A new Bi2223 insert coil with almost the same size as the existing insert coil can generate two times higher fields at the elevated operation current from 162 to 191 A. An upgraded cryogen-free superconducting magnet can offer a long-term experiment at the constant magnetic field of 20 T for an in-field heat-treatment investigation.

  3. Speed-of-Sound Measurements in (Argon + Carbon Dioxide) over the Temperature Range from (275 to 500) K at Pressures up to 8 MPa. (United States)

    Wegge, Robin; McLinden, Mark O; Perkins, Richard A; Richter, Markus; Span, Roland


    The speed of sound of two (argon + carbon dioxide) mixtures was measured over the temperature range from (275 to 500) K with pressures up to 8 MPa utilizing a spherical acoustic resonator. The compositions of the gravimetrically prepared mixtures were (0.50104 and 0.74981) mole fraction carbon dioxide. The vibrational relaxation of pure carbon dioxide led to high sound absorption, which significantly impeded the sound-speed measurements on carbon dioxide and its mixtures; pre-condensation may have also affected the results for some measurements near the dew line. Thus, in contrast to the standard operating procedure for speed-of-sound measurements with a spherical resonator, non-radial resonances at lower frequencies were taken into account. Still, the data show a comparatively large scatter, and the usual repeatability of this general type of instrument could not be realized with the present measurements. Nonetheless, the average relative combined expanded uncertainty (k = 2) in speed of sound ranged from (0.042 to 0.056)% for both mixtures, with individual state-point uncertainties increasing to 0.1%.

  7. Correlation between ferromagnetism and the concentration of interfacial defects in multiferroic Bi7Fe2.75Co0.25Ti3O21 studied by positron annihilation (United States)

    Ge, W. N.; Li, X. N.; Xu, J. P.; Huang, S. J.; Liu, J. D.; Zhu, Z.; Fu, Z. P.; Lu, Y. L.; Ye, B. J.


    This paper investigated the effect of the annealing temperature on the interfacial defects and the magnetization of a single-phase multiferroic Bi7Fe2.75Co0.25Ti3O21. With the increase of annealing temperature, the average thickness of the nonaplates increased from 80 to 180 nm. But the magnetic property measurement shows that the saturation magnetization gradually decreases with the increase of the annealing temperature correspondingly. Positron annihilation measurements reveal that the interfacial defects disappear obviously when the annealing temperature increased, which is found to agree well with the variation of saturation magnetization. The results suggest that with the higher concentration of interfacial defects may bring about higher saturation magnetization for the Aurivillius phase material, opening a window to improve the magnetic performance through controlling the concentration of interfacial defects.

  8. Rapid detection of the H275Y oseltamivir resistance mutation in influenza A/H1N1 2009 by single base pair RT-PCR and high-resolution melting.

    Steven Y C Tong

    Full Text Available INTRODUCTION: We aimed to design a real-time reverse-transcriptase-PCR (rRT-PCR, high-resolution melting (HRM assay to detect the H275Y mutation that confers oseltamivir resistance in influenza A/H1N1 2009 viruses. FINDINGS: A novel strategy of amplifying a single base pair, the relevant SNP at position 823 of the neuraminidase gene, was chosen to maintain specificity of the assay. Wildtype and mutant virus were differentiated when using known reference samples of cell-cultured virus. However, when dilutions of these reference samples were assayed, amplification of non-specific primer-dimer was evident and affected the overall melting temperature (T(m of the amplified products. Due to primer-dimer appearance at >30 cycles we found that if the cycle threshold (C(T for a dilution was >30, the HRM assay did not consistently discriminate mutant from wildtype. Where the C(T was 32.98 would have an H275Y assay C(T>30. Analysis of the TaqMan C(T values for 609 consecutive clinical samples predicted that 207 (34% of the samples would result in an HRM assay C(T>30 and therefore not be amenable to the HRM assay. CONCLUSIONS: The use of single base pair PCR and HRM can be useful for specifically interrogating SNPs. When applied to H1N1 09, the constraints this placed on primer design resulted in amplification of primer-dimer products. The impact primer-dimer had on HRM curves was adjusted for by plotting T(m against C(T. Although less sensitive than TaqMan assays, the HRM assay can rapidly, and at low cost, screen samples with moderate viral concentrations.

  9. UGT1A9 -275T>A/-2152C>T polymorphisms correlate with low MPA exposure and acute rejection in MMF/tacrolimus-treated kidney transplant patients. (United States)

    Mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is an immunosuppressive drug commonly used in the context of kidney transplantation. Exposure to the active metabolite mycophenolic acid (MPA) is associated with risk of allograft rejection. MPA pharmacokinetics varies between individuals, the potential cause being the presence of genetic polymorphisms in key enzymes. We genotyped 338 kidney transplant patients for UGT1A8, UGT1A9, UGT2B7, and MRP2 polymorphisms and recorded MPA exposure and biopsy-proven acute rejections (BPARs) during a 1-year follow-up. Tacrolimus-treated patients who were UGT1A9 -275T>A and/or -2152C>T carriers displayed a 20% lower MPA area under the concentration-time curve from 0 to 12 h (AUC(0-12)) (P = 0.012). UGT1A9*3 carriers displayed a 49% higher MPA AUC(0-12) when treated with tacrolimus and a 54% higher MPA AUC(0-12) when treated with cyclosporine (P A and/or -2152C>T polymorphism significantly predicted acute rejection in fixed-dose (FD) MMF-treated patients receiving tacrolimus (odds ratio 13.3, 95% confidence interval 1.1-162.3; P A and/or -2152C>T genotyping may identify patients at risk of MPA underexposure and acute rejection when receiving treatment with MMF and tacrolimus.

    This letter is a non-technical annual report of activities on Project 2007-275-00, Impact of American Shad for the period February 1, 2008 through January 31, 2009. A non-technical report is appropriate at this time since data collection is ongoing and results are preliminary. This report is intended to highlight accomplishments during this performance period. Progress on administrative work elements in the statement of work has been captured in the periodic status reports provided through Pisces. During this performance period the USGS accomplished the following tasks: (1) Co-chaired a symposium on American shad in the Columbia Basin at the annual meeting of the Western Division, American Fisheries Society. The USGS gave four presentations from work done during this project. Abstracts of the presentations were attached to the 2007 progress report. (2) Continued parameterization of a bioenergetics model for juvenile American shad. We performed a literature review to determine the applicability of the existing adult salmon bioenergetics parameters to juvenile fall Chinook salmon in support of our modeling investigation of diet overlap between juvenile American shad and fall Chinook salmon. We formulated testable hypotheses to investigate using bioenergetics models and conceptually developed model simulations. Held an in-house workshop to obtain feedback on the physiological parameters we selected for the American shad bioenergetics model and to solicit feedback on our modeling approach to address research questions. (3) Received a Section 10 ESA sampling permit based on the application submitted in the 2007 contract period. With the ESA permit in hand, we obtained scientific collection permits from the states of Washington and Oregon that allowed us to use a variety of fisheries sampling techniques to capture juvenile and adult American shad. (4) Conducted field sampling to meet project objectives. Gillnetting efforts to capture adult American shad near Astoria were

Because the reaction was measured completely, the polarization was studied versus the following: {ital x}{sub {ital F}}({minus}1to+1), {Lambda}{sup 0} transverse momentum (0 to 1.32GeV/{ital c}), correlations with the momentum vectors of the other particles in the reaction, and the invariant mass of combinations of particles in the final state. The dependence of the polarization on these variables does not always agree with theoretical expectations. {copyright} {ital 1995 The American Physical Society.}

  17. SU-E-T-275: Dose Build Up and Bolusing Characteristics for Total Body Irradiation Dosimetry

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Butson, M; Pope, D; Whitaker, M [Chris O’Brien LifeHouse, Sydney, NSW (Australia)


    Purpose: Total Body Irradiation (TBI) treatments are mainly used in a preparative regimen for haematopoietic stem cell (or bone marrow) transplantation. Our standard regimen is a 12 Gy / 6 fraction bi-daily technique. To evaluate the delivered dose homogeneity to the patient, EBT3 Gafchromic film is positioned at the head, neck, chest, pelvis and groin for all fractions. This work investigates and quantifies the build-up dose characteristics at TBI distances and requirements for in-vivo dosimetry bolusing. Methods: Percentage dose build up characteristics of photon beams have been investigated at large extended SSD’s using parallel plate ionisations chambers (Attix) and EBT3 Gafchromic film. Measurements were made to open fields at different field sizes as well as large 40cm × 40cm fields with differing scatter conditions such as the introduction of standard Perspex scattering plates at different distances to the measurement point. Results: Percentage surface dose measured values for open fields at 300 cm SSD were found to range from 20 % up to 65.5 % for fields of 5 cm × 5 cm to 40 cm × 40 cm. With the introduction of 1cm Perspex scattering plates used in TBI treatments the surface dose values increased up to 83% to 90%, depending on the position of the Perspex scattering plate compared to the measurement point. Our work showed that at least 3mm water equivalent bolus / scatter material should be placed over the EBT3 for accurate dose assessment for TBI treatments. Conclusion: Build up dose characteristics exist at long (300cm) SSD’s including treatments using Perspex scattering plates placed at various distances form the patient during TBI treatment. Top accurately assess the applied dose during treatment, in-vivo dosimeters such as Gafchromic EBT3 should have at least 3mm bolus / scatter material placed over them to measure actual applied doses.

    The globalization of the economy has approached the markets and one of the consequences of this approach is the entrance of new equipment and highly competitive machines in cost terms. This is the same reality of the Brazilian agricultural sector that today counts on new options of machines and very interesting implements of the point of view of the acquisition cost. In this context, this work aimed at the dynamometric assay of an agricultural tractor for attainment of its curves of torque, power using the B100 soybean fuels, B100 olive, B100 diesel. (author)

  1. The Gow-Gates mandibular block. Evaluation after 4,275 cases. (United States)

    Malamed, S F


    The Gow-Gates mandibular block, introduced in the United States in 1973, represents the first new approach to intraoral regional anesthesia in many years. The technique is being taught at most United States dental schools. This article presents a clinical evaluation of the Gow-Gates technique after 5 years of application and more than 4,000 cases. Advantages of this technique over the conventional inferior alveolar nerve block include a greater success rate, decreased positive aspiration rate, and fewer postinjection problems.

  16. Radiation-associated circulatory disease mortality in a pooled analysis of 77,275 patients from the Massachusetts and Canadian tuberculosis fluoroscopy cohorts (United States)

    Tran, Van; Zablotska, Lydia B.; Brenner, Alina V.; Little, Mark P.


    High-dose ionising radiation is associated with circulatory disease. Risks associated with lower-dose (Tuberculosis patients in Canada and Massachusetts received multiple diagnostic x-ray fluoroscopic exposures, over a wide range of ages, many at doses <0.5 Gy. We evaluated risks of circulatory-disease mortality associated with <0.5 Gy radiation exposure in a pooled cohort of 63,707 patients in Canada and 13,568 patients in Massachusetts. Under 0.5 Gy there are increasing trends for all circulatory disease (n = 10,209; excess relative risk/Gy = 0.246; 95% CI 0.036, 0.469; p = 0.021) and for ischaemic heart disease (n = 6410; excess relative risk/Gy = 0.267; 95% CI 0.003, 0.552; p = 0.048). All circulatory-disease and ischaemic-heart-disease risk reduces with increasing time since exposure (p < 0.005). Over the entire dose range, there are negative mortality dose trends for all circulatory disease (p = 0.014) and ischaemic heart disease (p = 0.003), possibly due to competing causes of death over this dose interval.These results confirm and extend earlier findings and strengthen the evidence for circulatory-disease mortality radiation risk at doses <0.5 Gy. The limited information on well-known lifestyle/medical risk factors for circulatory disease implies that confounding of the dose trend cannot be entirely excluded. PMID:28287147

    The NA60 experiment has studied low-mass muon pair production in proton-nucleus collisions with a system of Be, Cu, In, W, Pb and U targets using a 400 GeV/$c$ proton beam at the CERN SPS. The mass spectrum is well described by the superposition of the two-body and Dalitz decays of the light neutral mesons $\\eta$, $\\rho$, $\\omega$, $\\eta'$ and $\\phi$. A new high-precision measurement of the electromagnetic transition form factors of the $\\eta$ and $\\omega$ mesons is presented, complemented with a measurement of the temperature parameter of the $\\rho$ meson in cold nuclear matter. The $\\pt$ spectra for the $\\omega$ and $\\phi$ mesons are extracted in the full $\\pt$ range accessible, up to $\\pt = 2$ GeV/$c$. The nuclear dependence of the production cross sections for the $\\eta$, $\\omega$ and $\\phi$ mesons has been investigated in terms of the power law $\\sigma_\\mathrm{pA} \\propto \\mathrm{A}^\\alpha$, and the $\\alpha$ parameter was studied as a function of $\\pt$.

  19. Dissolved organic matter fluorescence at wavelength 275/342 nm as a key indicator for detection of point-source contamination in a large Chinese drinking water lake. (United States)

    Zhou, Yongqiang; Jeppesen, Erik; Zhang, Yunlin; Shi, Kun; Liu, Xiaohan; Zhu, Guangwei


    Surface drinking water sources have been threatened globally and there have been few attempts to detect point-source contamination in these waters using chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) fluorescence. To determine the optimal wavelength derived from CDOM fluorescence as an indicator of point-source contamination in drinking waters, a combination of field campaigns in Lake Qiandao and a laboratory wastewater addition experiment was used. Parallel factor (PARAFAC) analysis identified six components, including three humic-like, two tryptophan-like, and one tyrosine-like component. All metrics showed strong correlation with wastewater addition (r(2) > 0.90, p water quality in surface drinking water sources.

  20. Gene order in a 10 275 bp fragment of Yarrowia lipolytica, including adjacent YlURA5 and YlSEC65 genes conserved in four yeast species. (United States)

    Sánchez, M; Domínguez, A


    We have determined the sequence of a 10275 bp DNA segment of Yarrowia lipolytica located on chromosome VI. The sequence contains six complete open reading frames (ORFs) longer than 100 amino acids and two more partial ORFs at both ends. Two of the ORFs encode for the well-characterized genes YlURA5 (orotate phosphoribosyltransferase) and YlSEC65 (encoding a subunit of the signal recognition particle). These two genes show an identical organization-located on opposite strands and in opposite orientations-in four yeast species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Kluyveromyces lactis, Candida albicans and Y. lipolytica. One ORF and the two partial ORFs code for putative proteins showing significant homology with proteins from other organisms. YlVI-108w (partial) and YlVI-103w show 39% and 54% identity, respectively, with YDR430c and YHR088w from S. cerevisiae. YlVI-102c (partial) shows significant homology with a matrix protein, lustrin A from Haliotis rufescens, and with the PGRS subfamily (Gly-rich proteins) of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The three remaining ORFs show weak or non-significant homology with previously sequenced genes. The nucleotide sequence has been submitted to the EMBL database under Accession No. AI006754.

  2. Spin Density Matrix Elements in Exclusive rho^0 Electroproduction on 1H and 2H Targets at 27.5 GeV Beam Energy

    CERN Document Server

    Airapetian, A


    Spin Density Matrix Elements (SDMEs) describing the angular distribution of exclusive rho^0 electroproduction and decay are determined in the HERMES experiment with 27.6 GeV beam energy and unpolarized hydrogen and deuterium targets. Eight (fifteen) SDMEs that are related (unrelated) to the longitudinal polarization of the beam are extracted in the kinematic region 1 GeV^2 < Q^2 < 7 GeV^2, 3.0 GeV < W < 6.3 GeV, and -t < 0.4 GeV^2. Within the given experimental uncertainties, a hierarchy of relative sizes of helicity amplitudes is observed. Kinematic dependences of all SDMEs on Q^2 and t are presented, as well as the longitudinal-to-transverse rho^0 electroproduction cross section ratio as a function of Q^2. A small but statistically significant deviation from the hypothesis of s-channel helicity conservation is observed. An indication is seen of a contribution of unnatural-parity-exchange amplitudes; these amplitudes are naturally generated with a quark-exchange mechanism.

  3. SU-E-T-275: Radiobiological Evaluation of Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy Treatment for Locally Advanced Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinomas

    Rekha Reddy, B.; Ravikumar, M.; Tanvir Pasha, C.R; Anil Kumar, M.R; Varatharaj, C. [Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology Bangalore, Karnataka (India); Pyakuryal, A [University Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL (United States); Narayanasamy, Ganesh [UTHSCSA, San Antonio, TX (United States)


    Purpose: To evaluate the radiobiological outcome of Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy Treatment (IMRT) for locally advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinomas using HART (Histogram Analysis in Radiation Therapy; J Appl Clin Med Phys 11(1): 137–157, 2010) program and compare with the clinical outcomes. Methods: We have treated 20 patients of stage III and IV HNSCC Oropharynx and hypopharynx with accelerated IMRT technique and concurrent chemotherapy. Delineation of tumor and normal tissues were done using Danish Head and Neck Cancer Group (DAHANCA) contouring guidelines and radiotherapy was delivered to a dose of 70Gy in 35 fractions to the primary and involved lymph nodes, 63Gy to intermediate risk areas and 56 Gy to lower risk areas, Monday to Saturday, 6 Days/week using 6 MV Photons with an expected overall treatment time of 6 weeks. The TCP and NTCP's were calculated from the dose-volume histogram (DVH) statistics using the Poisson Statistics (PS) and JT Lyman models respectively and the Resultwas correlated with clinical outcomes of the patients with mean follow up of 24 months. Results: Using HART program, the TCP (0.89± 0.01) of primary tumor and the NTCP for parotids (0.20±0.12), spinal cord (0.05±0.01), esophagus (0.30±0.2), mandible (0.35±0.21), Oral cavity (0.37±0.18), Larynx (0.30±0.15) were estimated and correlated with clinical outcome of the patients. Conclusion: Accelerated IMRT with Chemotherapy is a clinical feasible option in the treatment of locally advanced HNSCC with encouraging initial tumour response and acceptable acute toxicities. The correlation between the clinical outcomes and radiobiological model estimated parameters using HART programs are found to be satisfactory.

    Full Text Available Objective – To determine whether and how Danish university and higher education students use public libraries for studypurposes.Design – Online survey.Setting – Post‐secondary programs in Denmark.Subjects – 1,575 students in university‐level programs or other higher education programs (vocational three‐to‐four‐year programs in Denmark.Methods – A sample of students was drawn from the national database of students by selecting every student born on the 15th of every month (approximately 4,900 students. A letter describing the study and with an invitation to fill out an online questionnaire was sent to all students in the sample. There were 1,694 valid responses (approximately 35% response rate. Students following short vocational programs were deemed to be under‐represented and these subjects were omitted from the analysis of this report,which reflects the response of 1,575 students. The online questionnaire gathered demographic details (gender, age, educational institution, study topic, study year, geographical location, access to the Internet, etc. and used 110 questions or statements to gather information about student information‐seeking behaviour related to study purposes. These included use of the physical library and satisfaction with services, use of search engines, awareness and use of library Web‐based services, study behaviour, and participation in information literacy activities. Main results – For the purposes of this study, “academic library is used as a generic term covering university libraries, research libraries, educational libraries and all other kind of libraries outside the field of public libraries” (p. 278. The survey results confirmed many of the previous international reports of student information‐seeking behaviour: 85% of students use the academic library for study purposes; fewer than 10% of all students are able to cope without any library use; students in technology and engineering, the sciences and arts, architecture and music have a higher rate of non‐use of their academic libraries; a large percentage of students access the electronic resources from home; the physical library is still considered important to students; Google is used extensively and is nearly the exclusive choice for search engine. The public library is used for study purposes by about 58 percent of all students with the highest use (76% by students in higher education institutions (HEI; students of education, social topics and psychology are very frequent public library users. Female students in HEI were the most frequent users of the public library independent of study subject or year, or any other demographic variable. Seven per cent of students rely exclusively on the public library for study purposes and first‐year HEI students in the subject areas of education, social topics and psychology are over‐represented in this group (which additionally has less Internet access from home than the other students. Students perceive nearly all aspects of service in the academic library as superior; HEI students rate ambience, electronic resources and speed of inter‐library loan provision in the public library as higher than the academic. University students give a low rating to the collections of public library, although the students use the public library principally to supplement the collections available in their academic libraries. Another high use of public libraries by HEI students is for interlibrary loans placed through the national resource sharing system. Public library reference services are used often by only one per cent of students and only two per cent use the public library on a regular basis for “study related group activities.” Conclusion – Students use physical libraries to a great extent to support their studies and students have embraced digital access to collections, especially access from home. Google is the most heavily used search engine and is used by nearly all students;use of Google complements and supplements library use. Nearly 60% of all students use public libraries for study purposes and to supplement the collections of their academic library, but they find that the public library collections are insufficient to meet their needs. The inter‐library loan policies of public libraries are more lenient and accommodating to student needs and may drive the high use of public libraries. Students form a large constituency of the public library user population and they generally rate most aspects of service as substandard to those of academic libraries. There is a call for review of the public library’s role in meeting the information needs of students, and in particular, those of HEI programs who are most dependent on the public library.

  7. Ab initio study of H, He, Li and Be impurity effect in tungsten Σ3{1 1 2} and Σ27{5 5 2} grain boundaries. (United States)

    Setyawan, Wahyu; Kurtz, Richard J


    Density functional theory calculations were performed to investigate the effect of H, He, Li and Be impurities on the intergranular cohesion of W Σ3〈1 1 0〉{1 1 2} and Σ27〈1 1 0〉{5 5 2} grain boundaries (GBs). A rigorous search of unique interstices was performed to reveal a range of impurity behaviors. It was found that He exhibits the largest defect formation energy, however it is Li that shows the strongest tendency to segregate towards the GBs. The embrittling potency was studied using the ideal GB fracture energy (Rice-Wang) criterion (Rice and Wang 1989 Mater. Sci. Eng. A 107 23). The potency was found to depend significantly on the local atomic environment. A site-dependent concentration was used as the weighing factor to obtain an average potency as a function of temperature. It was found that the potency depends only weakly on temperature. In Σ3 H, He, Li and Be decrease fracture energy by 4%, 27%, 30% and 14%, respectively. In Σ27 H, He and Li also decrease cohesion, albeit less severely: 3%, 14% and 7%. On the other hand, Be increases cohesion in Σ27 by 3%.

  8. Automatic Parallelization of Scientific Application

    Blum, Troels

    In my PhD work I show that it is possible to run unmodified Python/NumPy code on modern GPUs. This is done by using the Bohrium runtime system to translate the NumPy array operations into an array based bytecode sequence. Executing these byte-codes on two GPUs from different vendors shows great...... performance gains. Scientists working with computer simulations should be allowed to focus on their field of research and not spend excessive amounts of time learning exotic programming models and languages. We have with Bohrium achieved very promising results by starting out with a relatively simple approach....... This has lead to more specialized methods as I have shown with the work done with both specialized, and parametrizied kernels. Both have their benefits and recognizable use cases. We achieved clear performance benefits without any significant negative impact on overall application performance. Even...

  9. Battling memory requirements of array programming through streaming

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Kristensen, Mads Ruben Burgdorff; Avery, James Emil; Blum, Troels;


    A barrier to efficient array programming, for example in Python/NumPy, is that algorithms written as pure array operations completely without loops, while most efficient on small input, can lead to explosions in memory use. The present paper presents a solution to this problem using array streaming......, implemented in the automatic parallelization high-performance framework Bohrium. This makes it possible to use array programming in Python/NumPy code directly, even when the apparent memory requirement exceeds the machine capacity, since the automatic streaming eliminates the temporary memory overhead...... streaming, yielding corresponding improvements in speed and utilization of GPGPU-cores. The streaming-enabled Bohrium effortlessly runs programs on input sizes much beyond sizes that crash on pure NumPy due to exhausting system memory....

    lthough originally planned for fundamental research in nuclear physics, the particle beams of pions, muons, protons and neutrons are now used in a large variety of disciplines in both natural science and medicine. The beams at PSI have the world's highest intensities and therefore allow certain experiments to be performed, which would not be possible elsewhere. The highlight of research this year was the first-ever determination of the chemical properties of the superheavy element {sup 107} Bohrium. This was undertaken, by an international team led by H. Gaeggeler of PSI's Laboratory for Radiochemistry. Bohrium was produced by bombarding a Berkelium target with Neon ions from the Injector I cyclotron and six atoms were detected after having passed through an online gas chromatography device. At the Laboratory for Particle Physics the focus has shifted from nuclear physics to elementary particle physics with about a fifty-fifty split between investigations of rare processes or particle decays using the high intensity muon, pion and recently also polarized neutron beams of PSI, and research at the highest energy frontier at CERN (Geneva) and DESY (Hamburg). Important space instrumentation has been contributed by the Laboratory for Astrophysics to the European Space Agency and NASA satellite programmes. The Laboratory for Micro and Nanotechnology continued to focus on research into molecular nanotechnology and SiGeC nanostructures, the latter with the aim of producing silicon based optoelectronics. Progress in 1999 in these topical areas is described in this report. A list of scientific publications in 1999 is also provided.

  17. The comparative effect of an addition of a surface term to the Woods-Saxon potential on the thermodynamics of a nucleon

    CERN Document Server

    Lütfüoğlu, B C


    In this study, we reveal the difference between Woods-Saxon (WS) and Generalized Symmetric Woods-Saxon (GSWS) potentials in order to describe the physical properties of a nucleon, by means of solving Schr\\"odinger equation for the two potentials. The additional term squeezes the WS potential well, which leads an upward shift in the spectrum, resulting in a more realistic picture. The resulting GSWS potential does not merely accommodate extra quasi bound states, but also has modified bound state spectrum. As an application, we apply the formalism to a real problem, an $\\alpha$ particle confined in Bohrium-$270$ nucleus. The thermodynamic functions Helmholtz energy, entropy, internal energy, specific heat of the system are calculated and compared in both wells. The internal energy and the specific heat capacity increase, as a result of upward shift in the spectrum. The shift of the Helmholtz free energy is a direct consequence of the shift of the spectrum. The entropy decreases because of a decrement in the num...

  18. Sensor I threonine of the AAA+ ATPase transcriptional activator PspF is involved in coupling nucleotide triphosphate hydrolysis to the restructuring of sigma 54-RNA polymerase. (United States)

    Schumacher, Jörg; Joly, Nicolas; Rappas, Mathieu; Bradley, Dominic; Wigneshweraraj, Siva R; Zhang, Xiaodong; Buck, Martin


    Transcriptional initiation invariably involves the transition from a closed RNA polymerase (RNAP) promoter complex to a transcriptional competent open complex. Activators of the bacterial sigma(54)-RNAP are AAA+ proteins that couple ATP hydrolysis to restructure the sigma(54)-RNAP promoter complex. Structures of the sigma(54) activator PspF AAA+ domain (PspF(1-275)) bound to sigma(54) show two loop structures proximal to sigma(54) as follows: the sigma(54) contacting the GAFTGA loop 1 structure and loop 2 that classifies sigma(54) activators as pre-sensor 1 beta-hairpin AAA+ proteins. We report activities for PspF(1-275) mutated in the AAA+ conserved sensor I threonine/asparagine motif (PspF(1-275)(T148A), PspF(1-275)(N149A), and PspF(1-275)(N149S)) within the second region of homology. We show that sensor I asparagine plays a direct role in ATP hydrolysis. However, low hydrolysis rates are sufficient for functional output in vitro. In contrast, PspF(1-275)(T148A) has severe defects at the distinct step of sigma(54) promoter restructuring. This defect is not because of the failure of PspF(1-275)(T148A) to stably engage with the closed sigma(54) promoter, indicating (i) an important role in ATP hydrolysis-associated motions during energy coupling for remodeling and (ii) distinguishing PspF(1-275)(T148A) from PspF(1-275) variants involved in signaling to the GAFTGA loop 1, which fail to stably engage with the promoter. Activities of loop 2 PspF(1-275) variants are similar to those of PspF(1-275)(T148A) suggesting a functional signaling link between Thr(148) and loop 2. In PspF(1-275) this link relies on the conserved nucleotide state-dependent interaction between the Walker B residue Glu(108) and Thr(148). We propose that hydrolysis is relayed via Thr(148) to loop 2 creating motions that provide mechanical force to the GAFTGA loop 1 that contacts sigma(54).

  19. Identification of a short interspersed repetitive element insertion polymorphism in the porcine MX1 promoter associated with resistance to porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus infection. (United States)

    Li, Yanping; Liang, Sen; Liu, Hao; Sun, Yi; Kang, Li; Jiang, Yunliang


    The myxovirus resistance (Mx) proteins belong to the dynamin superfamily and are important for innate host defence against RNA viruses. In this study, we demonstrate that positive elements are present in the two promoter regions of -2713 to -2565 and -688 to -431 in the porcine MX1 gene. Sequencing and alignment of the amplified porcine MX1 gene promoter region identified a short interspersed repetitive element (SINE) insertion of 275 bp at site -547. At this site, allele B (an insertion of 275 bp) is dominant in Chinese indigenous pig breeds but has a workable minor allele frequency in western lean-type pig breeds. Luciferase activity was compared between promoters with and without the insertion of the 275-bp fragment in transiently transfected MARC-145 cells. The insertion of the 275-bp fragment increased the luciferase activity significantly (P MX1 gene promoter region is a potential DNA marker for PRRS resistance in pigs.

    Full Text Available Four growth type mutants 2-75, W-SK, W-19, W-97 obtained from seeds of Cucumis sativus var. Borszczagowski treated with ethylene imine were studied. These mutants represented two types of growth: intensive (2-75 and dwarf (W-SK, W-19, W-97. The exuberant growth of mutant 2-75 was the result of internode elongation, intensive production of lateral shoots, enlargement of leaf and number of vascular bundles (11 as compared with 9 in the remaining mutants. The dwarfness of W-SK, W-19, W-97 mutants was caused by strong shoot reduction resulting from decreased length and number of internodes, limiting of lateral shoot production, smaller and darker leaf blade. The mutants produced fruits which differed in shape, dimension and colouring. Moreover, the fruits of mutant 2-75 were characterized by the presence of empty chambers in the endocarp.

In both models, it was investigated whether intestinal...... permeation of A275 was concentration dependent and affected by inhibitors or competitive organic anions. Interactions related to transporters in intestinal permeation was clearly demonstrated in the Caco-2 cell model but was not directly evident for in vivo rat absorption. However, an observed biphasic...... in vivo absorption and a large intervariability between rats might mask a dose-dependent absorption of A275.

  8. The effect of transport density and gender on stress indicators and carcass and meat quality in pigs

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Pereira, T.L.; Corassa, A.; Komiyama, C. M.; Araújo, C.V.; Kataoka, A.


    A total of 168 finishing pigs were used to investigate the effects of gender (barrows and gilts) and transport densities for slaughter (236, 251, and 275 kg/m²) on stress indicators and carcass and pork quality. The animals transported at 251 kg/m² (T251) presented cortisol values below those at 236 kg/m2 (T236), but no different from those at 275 kg/m2 (T275). The lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) values in pigs transported at T236 were the lowest. The blood components did not differ between T236 and T275. The pH values at 45 min (pH45) and at 24 h (pH24) postmortem were higher for pigs subjected to T236. However, the pH45 was higher at T251 than at T275, but pH24 was lower at T251 than at T275. The lightness values in the muscles of the pigs transported at T236 and T251 were higher than those at T275. Lower drip loss values were observed in the muscle of animals at T251. Carcasses of pigs at T236 contained more 1–5 cm lesions while those at T275 contained more 5–10 cmlesions in sections of loin. No significant effects of gender were found on the stress indicators, blood components, pH45, pH24, color, drip loss or carcass lesions in general. These results indicate that the pre-slaughter transport of pigs at densities of 251 kg/m² generates less physiological damage and smaller losses on carcass and pork quality irrespective of gender.

  12. Permissive changes in the neuraminidase play a dominant role in improving the viral fitness of oseltamivir-resistant seasonal influenza A(H1N1) strains. (United States)

    Abed, Yacine; Pizzorno, Andrés; Bouhy, Xavier; Boivin, Guy


    Permissive neuraminidase (NA) substitutions such as R222Q, V234M and D344N have facilitated the emergence and worldwide spread of oseltamivir-resistant influenza A/Brisbane/59/2007 (H1N1)-H275Y viruses. However, the potential contribution of genetic changes in other viral segments on viral fitness remains poorly investigated. A series of recombinant A(H1N1)pdm09 and A/WSN/33 7:1 reassortants containing the wild-type (WT) A/Brisbane/59/2007 NA gene or its single (H275Y) and double (H275Y/Q222R, H275Y/M234V and H275Y/N344D) variants were generated and their replicative properties were assessed in vitro. The Q222R reversion substitution significantly reduced viral titers when evaluated in both A(H1N1)pdm09 and A/WSN/33 backgrounds. The permissive role of the R222Q was further confirmed using A/WSN/33 7:1 reassortants containing the NA gene of the oseltamivir-susceptible or oseltamivir-resistant influenza A/Mississippi/03/2001 strains. Therefore, NA permissive substitutions play a dominant role for improving viral replication of oseltamivir-resistant A (H1N1)-H275Y viruses in vitro.

  13. Properties of Group Five and Group Seven transactinium elements

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Wilk, Philip A.


    The detection and positive identification of the short-lived, low cross section isotopes used in the chemical studies of the heaviest elements are usually accomplished by measuring their alpha-decay, thus the nuclear properties of the heaviest elements must be examined simultaneously with their chemical properties. The isotopes 224 Pa and 266,267 Bh have been studied extensively as an integral part of the investigation of the heaviest members of the groups five and seven of the periodic table. The half-life of 224 Pa was determined to be 855 plus/minus19 ms by measuring its alpha-decay using our rotating wheel, solid state detector system at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory 88-Inch Cyclotron. Protactinium was produced by bombardment of a bismuth target. New neutron rich isotopes, 267 Bh and 266 Bh, were produced in bombardments of a 249 Bk target and their decay was observed using the rotating wheel system. The 266 Bh that was produced decays with a half-life of approximately 1 s by emission of alpha particles with an average energy of 9.25 plus/minus 0.03 MeV. 267 Bh was observed to decay with a 17 s half-life by emission of alpha-particles with an average energy of 8.83 plus/minus 0.03 MeV. The chemical behavior of hafnium, Ha (element 105) was investigated using the fast on-line continuous liquid extraction and detection system SISAK-LISSY. Hafnium was not observed in this experiment following transport and extraction. Protactinium was used as on-line test of the apparatus to determine the experimental efficiency of the entire system. Unfortunately, the amount of protactinium observed after the extraction, compared to the amount produced, was extremely small, only 2.5%. The extraction of the protactinium isotope indicated the efficiency of the apparatus was too low to observe the extraction of hafnium. The chemical behavior of oxychloride compounds of bohrium was investigated by isothermal gas adsorption chromatography in a quartz column at 180, 150

  14. An experimental paradigm opening the world of superheavy elements (United States)

    Armbruster, P.; Münzenberg, Gottfried


    The history of the discovery of the six elements Z = 107 ∓ 112, bohrium, hassium, meitnerium, darmstadtium, roentgenium, and copernicium goes back to the early 1960s. An experimental method to separate and identify rare nuclear reaction products, the recoil separation, was developed and optimised for beams of fission products at European research reactors. Chemical elements beyond the then first transactinides ( Z = 104), which owe their stability to the internal structure of atomic nuclei, were predicted theoretically. A big brother of the shell-stabilised nucleus 208Pb, a spherical magic nucleus at Z = 114∓126 and N = 184, might reach lifetimes long enough to be detected. In the seventies, hunting superheavy elements (SHE) was on the agenda of nuclear chemistry. Could the Periodic Table of Elements be extended to Z = 120, and is the order of electrons in the atom still following the laws established for lighter elements? In Germany, the heavy ion accelerator (UNILAC) was built by Christoph Schmelzer and his team at GSI, Darmstadt. SHE and UNILAC met the recoil separators in 1968, and SHIP (Separator for Heavy Ion reaction Products) was ready together with the first UNILAC-beams in 1976. Recoil separation is orders of magnitude more sensitive, selective, and faster than earlier methods used to synthesise elements up to seaborgium, Z = 106. The experimental paradigm we introduced opened the world of SHEs. At SHIP we discovered and investigated the elements Z = 107∓112 in the years 1980-2000. Our laboratory was the world champion during this time. Today our experimental method is used worldwide in the search for SHEs, but the leadership went to the Russian laboratory JINR in Dubna, which extended the Periodic Table by 6 more elements to Z = 118, the candidate for the next rare gas.

  15. Synthesis of the heaviest nuclei in cold fusion reactions (United States)

    Münzenberg, G.; Morita, K.


    Cold fusion of heavy ions paved the way to superheavy elements. It was proposed by Yu.Ts. Oganessian more than forty years ago in 1974 [1,2]. First experiments were carried out at JINR Dubna, starting with the reaction 40Ar + 208Pb → 248Fm* where several hundreds to thousand atoms were produced on one day. The large production rate indicating an enhancement of the fusion cross section, especially for the evaporation of two or three neutrons, proved the concept of cold-fusion with the use of the doubly magic nucleus 208Pb as a target. The Dubna experiments were extended to the transactinide region beyond rutherfordium. The breakthrough came with the separation in-flight. Two different approaches were used: kinematic separation with the velocity filter SHIP [3] at GSI Darmstadt, and with the gasfilled separator GARIS [4,5] at RIKEN. With SHIP the concept of cold fusion of massive nuclear systems was convincingly confirmed by the observation of the one-neutron evaporation channel in the production of 247Rf in an irradiation of 208Pb with 50Ti [6] in 1981 which opened the way to the transactinide region. At SHIP the elements bohrium (107) to copernicium (112) were discovered [7]. A new closed shell region around hassium was found. The RIKEN experiments started in 2002. They confirmed the GSI results and in addition improved the data on structure and production of elements hassium to copernicium significantly. The heaviest element ever created in a cold fusion reaction, Z = 113, was observed at GARIS [8,9].

  16. Use of osteoplastic material to guide bone tissue regeneration deffect. (United States)

    Machavariani, A; Mazmishvili, K; Grdzelidze, T; Menabde, G; Amiranashvili, I


    The goal of research was study of restoration processes in jaw-teeth bone defects by application of osteoplastic materials in the experiment. The experiment was performed over 32 white (6-12 month old) rats; the animals were divided into 2 groups; 16 animals were enrolled in the first group; the section was performed in the edge of lower jaw; the lower jaw body was revealed. Under the effect of the dental drilling machine and the # 1 cooling mean by the fissure bohrium (distilled water) the defect of the dimension of 2x2 mm was created; the defect was washed by 0/9% saline to remove the bone sawdust; the wound was sutured tightly, in layers. The second group of the experiment was staffed with 16 animals (main group); the similar bone defect of the size 2 x 2mm was created on the rat's jaw's body. After washing of modeled defect we inserted osteopathic materials PORESORB-TCP crystals with the size of 0,6-1.0 mm the wound was sutured tightly, in layers. After the 3-rd, 15-th, 30-th and 90-th days from the date of operation there was performed X-ray and morphological examination over the animals in the control as well as the main group. The analysis of the examination performed over the experimental materials showed that in the control group in samples taken at 90th day the defects were not completely restored. In the test group in samples taken at 90th day reparative regeneration is confirmed. This is stimulated by the factor that within the main group's animals the defect regeneration process is supported with the osteoplastic material PORESORB-TCP.

  17. The Alleghanian orogeny in the southern Appalachians: Perspective from the hinterland

    Along the Savannah River, the southeastern edge of the exposed Appalachian orogen provides a record of Alleghanian tectonothermal activity spanning 275--315 Ma. The earliest known structure is the Modoc fault extending 250 km along the Fall Line from Lake Murray, SC to Forsyth, GA. The Modoc fault is interpreted as a low-angle normal fault kinematically related to delamination during collision between Gondwana and Laurentia. During 275--315 Ma, the Modoc fault and adjacent terranes were deformed by NW vergent folds that are interpreted to have been kinematically linked to shortening in the foreland VIA a regional decollement. Prior to 275 Ma, the Modoc fault formed along the SE side of the Savannah River terrane. Ar-40/Ar-39 muscovite plateau ages in the Savannah River terrane define a 275 Ma horizontal isothermal surface which has not been folded or tilted. The Alleghanian orogeny in the hinterland is therefore interpreted to have terminated at ca. 275 Ma. The variety of Alleghanian structures in the hinterland may be a consequence of indentor tectonics and partitioning of displacement among coeval thrust, normal, and strike-slip faults. Taken together, the structures are interpreted to indicate relative convergence and counterclockwise rotation of Gondwana during the Alleghanian orogeny.

    Chen, Xiao-Li; Guo, Wen-Zhong; Xue, Xu-Zhang; Wang, Li-Chun; Li, Liang; Chen, Fei


    Mineral elements absorption and content of Lactuca sativa under different spectral component conditions were studied by ICP-AES technology. The results showed that: (1) For Lactuca sativa, the average proportion for Ca : Mg : K : Na : P was 5.5 : 2.5 : 2.3 : 1.5 : 1.0, the average proportion for Fe : Mn : Zn : Cu : B was 25.9 : 5.9 : 2.8 : 1.1 : 1.0; (2) The absorptions for K, P, Ca, Mg and B are the largest under the LED treatment R/B = 1 : 2.75, red light from fluorescent lamps and LED can both promote the absorptions of Fe and Cu; (3)The LED treatments exhibiting relatively higher content of mineral elements are R/B = 1 : 2.75 and R/W = 1 : 1 while higher dry matter accumulations are R/B = 1 : 2.75 and B/W = 1 : 1.

  1. HDAC I inhibition in the dorsal and ventral hippocampus differentially modulates predator-odor fear learning and generalization

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Robin K Yuan


    Full Text Available Although predator odors are ethologically relevant stimuli for rodents, the molecular pathways and contribution of some brain regions involved remain elusive. Inhibition of histone deacetylases (HDACs in the dorsal hippocampus has been shown to enhance shock-induced contextual fear learning, but it is unknown if HDACs have differential effects along the dorso-ventral hippocampal axis during predator odor fear learning. We injected MS-275, a class I HDAC inhibitor, bilaterally in the dorsal or ventral hippocampus of mice and found that it had no effects on innate anxiety in either region. We then assessed the effects of MS-275 at different stages of fear learning along the longitudinal hippocampal axis. Animals were injected with MS-275 or vehicle after context pre-exposure (pre-conditioning injections, when a representation of the context is first formed, or after exposure to coyote urine (post-conditioning injections, when the context becomes associated with predator odor. When MS-275 was administered after context pre-exposure, dorsally injected animals showed enhanced fear in the training context but were able to discriminate it from a neutral environment. Conversely, ventrally injected animals did not display enhanced learning in the training context but generalized the fear response to a neutral context. However, when MS-275 was administered after conditioning, there were no differences between MS-275 or vehicle control groups in either the dorsal or ventral hippocampus. Surprisingly, all groups displayed generalization to a neutral context, suggesting that predator odor exposure followed by the restraint necessary for the injections leads to fear generalization. These results may elucidate distinct functions of the dorsal and ventral hippocampus in predator odor-induced fear conditioning as well as some of the molecular mechanisms underlying fear generalization.

    Highlights: •DPP-4 inhibitor decreased urinary albumin excretion in a rat of type 1 diabetes. •DPP-4 inhibitor ameliorated histlogical changes of diabetic nephropathy. •DPP-4 inhibitor has reno-protective effects through anti-inflammatory action. •DPP-4 inhibitor is beneficial on diabetic nephropathy besides lowering blood glucose. -- Abstract: Introduction: Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors are incretin-based drugs in patients with type 2 diabetes. In our previous study, we showed that glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist has reno-protective effects through anti-inflammatory action. The mechanism of action of DPP-4 inhibitor is different from that of GLP-1 receptor agonists. It is not obvious whether DPP-4 inhibitor prevents the exacerbation of diabetic nephropathy through anti-inflammatory effects besides lowering blood glucose or not. The purpose of this study is to clarify the reno-protective effects of DPP-4 inhibitor through anti-inflammatory actions in the early diabetic nephropathy. Materials and methods: Five-week-old male Sprague–Dawley (SD) rats were divided into three groups; non-diabetes, diabetes and diabetes treated with DPP-4 inhibitor (PKF275-055; 3 mg/kg/day). PKF275-055 was administered orally for 8 weeks. Results: PKF275-055 increased the serum active GLP-1 concentration and the production of urinary cyclic AMP. PKF275-055 decreased urinary albumin excretion and ameliorated histological change of diabetic nephropathy. Macrophage infiltration was inhibited, and inflammatory molecules were down-regulated by PKF275-055 in the glomeruli. In addition, nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) activity was suppressed in the kidney. Conclusions: These results indicate that DPP-4 inhibitor, PKF275-055, have reno-protective effects through anti-inflammatory action in the early stage of diabetic nephropathy. The endogenous biological active GLP-1 might be beneficial on diabetic nephropathy besides lowering blood glucose.

  6. Effects of irradiation at low temperature on V-4Cr-4Ti

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Alexander, D.J.; Snead, L.L.; Zinkle, S.J. [Oak Ridge National Lab., TN (United States)] [and others


    Irradiation at low temperatures (100 to 275{degrees}C) to 0.5 dpa causes significant embrittlement and changes in the subsequent room temperature tensile properties of V-4Cr-4Ti. The yield strength and microhardness at room temperature increase with increasing irradiation temperature. The tensile flow properties at room temperature show large increases in strength and a complete loss of work hardening capacity with no uniform ductility. Embrittlement, as measured by an increase in the ductile-to-brittle transition temperature, increases with increasing irradiation temperature, at least up to 275{degrees}C. This embrittlement is not due to pickup of O or other interstitial solutes during the irradiation.

    A high resolution gas chromatography method for the analysis of the aromatised product of n-heptane has been developed. The individual aromatics were separated on OV-101 and OV-275 capillary columns. The qualitative analysis was done using correlation between retention data vs. boiling point and the literature data available. Quantitation was achieved using flame ionisation detector assuming that the relative response for all aromatics is same. Packed column of OV-275 gave group type distribution of saturate (1.2%), monoaromatics (76.6%) diaromatics 21.9% and triaromatics 0.3%. Data generated are presented as individual components, hydrocarbon groups and according to carbon number distribution. (orig.)

  11. Deposition temperature effect on electrical properties and interface of high-k ZrO{sub 2} capacitor

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Kim, Joo-Hyung; Ignatova, Velislava A [Fraunhofer Institute, Center of Nanoelectronic Technologies (CNT), Koenigsbruecker Str., 01099 Dresden (Germany); Heitmann, Johannes; Oberbeck, Lars [Qimonda Dresden GmbH and Co. OHG, Koenigsbruecker Str. 180, 01099 Dresden (Germany)], E-mail:


    The electrical characteristics, i.e. leakage current and capacitance, of ZrO{sub 2} based metal-insulator-metal structures, grown at 225, 250 and 275 deg, C by atomic layer deposition, were studied. The lowest leakage current was obtained at 250 deg. C deposition temperature, while the highest dielectric constant (k {approx} 43) was measured for the samples grown at 275 {sup 0}C, most probably due to the formation of tetragonal/cubic phases in the ZrO{sub 2} layer. We have shown that the main leakage current of these ZrO{sub 2} capacitors is governed by the Poole-Frenkel conduction mechanism. It was observed by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy depth profiling that at 275 {sup 0}C deposition temperature the oxygen content at and beyond the ZrO{sub 2}/TiN interface is higher than at lower deposition temperatures, most probably due to oxygen inter-diffusion towards the electrode layer, forming a mixed TiN-TiO{sub x}N{sub y} interface layer. At and above 275 deg. C the ZrO{sub 2} layer changes its structure and becomes crystalline as proven by XRD analysis. (fast track communication)

    Several reactions producing odd-Z transactinide compound nuclei were studiedwith the 88-Inch Cyclotron and the Berkeley Gas-Filled Separator at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The goal was to produce the same compound nucleus ator near the same excitation energy with similar values of angular momentum via differentnuclear reactions. In doing so, it can be determined if there is a preference in entrancechannel, because under these experimental conditions the survival portion of Swiatecki, Siwek-Wilcznska, and Wilczynski's"Fusion By Diffusion" model is nearly identical forthe two reactions. Additionally, because the same compound nucleus is produced, theexit channel is the same. Four compound nuclei were examined in this study: 258Db, 262Bh, 266Mt, and 272Rg. These nuclei were produced by using very similar heavy-ion induced-fusion reactions which differ only by one proton in the projectile or target nucleus (e.g.: 50Ti + 209Bi vs. 51V + 208Pb). Peak 1n exit channel cross sections were determined for each reaction in each pair, and three of the four pairs' cross sections were identical within statistical uncertainties. This indicates there is not an obvious preference of entrancechannel in these paired reactions. Charge equilibration immediately prior to fusionleading to a decreased fusion barrier is the likely cause of this phenomenon. In addition to this systematic study, the lightest isotope of element 107, bohrium, was discovered in the 209Bi(52Cr,n) reaction. 260Bh was found to decay by emission of a 10.16 MeV alpha particle with a half-life of 35$+19\\atop{-9}$ ms. The cross section is 59 pb at an excitation energy of 15.0 MeV. The effect of the N = 152 shell is also seen in this isotope's alpha particle energy, the first evidence of such an effect in Bh. All reactions studied are also compared to model predictions by Swiatecki

    In the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam, rats are commonly traded in wet markets and sold live for food consumption. We investigated seroprevalence to selected groups of rodent-borne viruses among human populations with high levels of animal exposure and among co-located rodent populations. The indirect fluorescence antibody test (IFAT) was used to determine seropositivity to representative reference strains of hantaviruses (Dobrava virus [DOBV], Seoul virus [SEOV]), cowpox virus, arenaviruses (lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus [LCMV]), flaviviruses (tick-borne encephalitis virus [TBEV]), and rodent parechoviruses (Ljungan virus), using sera from 245 humans living in Dong Thap Province and 275 rodents representing the five common rodent species sold in wet markets and present in peridomestic and farm settings. Combined seropositivity to DOBV and SEOV among the rodents and humans was 6.9% (19/275) and 3.7% (9/245), respectively; 1.1% (3/275) and 4.5% (11/245) to cowpox virus; 5.4% (15/275) and 47.3% (116/245) for TBEV; and exposure to Ljungan virus was 18.8% (46/245) in humans, but 0% in rodents. Very little seroreactivity was observed to LCMV in either rodents (1/275, 0.4%) or humans (2/245, 0.8%). Molecular screening of rodent liver tissues using consensus primers for flaviviruses did not yield any amplicons, whereas molecular screening of rodent lung tissues for hantavirus yielded one hantavirus sequence (SEOV). In summary, these results indicate low to moderate levels of endemic hantavirus circulation, possible circulation of a flavivirus in rodent reservoirs, and the first available data on human exposures to parechoviruses in Vietnam. Although the current evidence suggests only limited exposure of humans to known rodent-borne diseases, further research is warranted to assess public health implications of the rodent trade.

    synthesised carbonyl complexes were identified by nuclear decay spectroscopy. Some complexes were studied with isothermal chromatography or thermochromatography methods. The chromatograms were compared with Monte Carlo Simulations to determine the adsorption enthalpyrnon silicon dioxide and on gold. These simulations based on existing codes, that were modified for the different geometries of the chromatography channels. All observed adsorption enthalpies (on silcon oxide as well as on gold) are typical for physisorption. Additionally, the thermalstability of some of the carbonyl complexes was studied. This showed that at temperatures above 200 C therncomplexes start to decompose. It was demonstrated that carbonyl-complex chemistry is a suitable method to study rutherfordium, dubnium, seaborgium, bohrium, hassium, and meitnerium. Until now, only very simple, thermally stable compounds have been synthesized in the gas-phase chemistry of the transactindes. With the synthesis of transactinide-carbonyl complexes a new compound class would be discovered. Transactinide chemistry would reach the border between inorganic and metallorganic chemistry. Furthermore, the in-situ synthesised carbonyl complexes would allow nuclear spectroscopy studies under low background conditions making use of chemically prepared samples.

  15. Algorithm Development and Validation of CDOM Properties for Estuarine and Continental Shelf Waters Along the Northeastern U.S. Coast (United States)

    Mannino, Antonio; Novak, Michael G.; Hooker, Stanford B.; Hyde, Kimberly; Aurin, Dick


    An extensive set of field measurements have been collected throughout the continental margin of the northeastern U.S. from 2004 to 2011 to develop and validate ocean color satellite algorithms for the retrieval of the absorption coefficient of chromophoric dissolved organic matter (aCDOM) and CDOM spectral slopes for the 275:295 nm and 300:600 nm spectral range (S275:295 and S300:600). Remote sensing reflectance (Rrs) measurements computed from in-water radiometry profiles along with aCDOM() data are applied to develop several types of algorithms for the SeaWiFS and MODIS-Aqua ocean color satellite sensors, which involve least squares linear regression of aCDOM() with (1) Rrs band ratios, (2) quasi-analytical algorithm-based (QAA based) products of total absorption coefficients, (3) multiple Rrs bands within a multiple linear regression (MLR) analysis, and (4) diffuse attenuation coefficient (Kd). The relative error (mean absolute percent difference; MAPD) for the MLR retrievals of aCDOM(275), aCDOM(355), aCDOM(380), aCDOM(412) and aCDOM(443) for our study region range from 20.4-23.9 for MODIS-Aqua and 27.3-30 for SeaWiFS. Because of the narrower range of CDOM spectral slope values, the MAPD for the MLR S275:295 and QAA-based S300:600 algorithms are much lower ranging from 9.9 and 8.3 for SeaWiFS, respectively, and 8.7 and 6.3 for MODIS, respectively. Seasonal and spatial MODIS-Aqua and SeaWiFS distributions of aCDOM, S275:295 and S300:600 processed with these algorithms are consistent with field measurements and the processes that impact CDOM levels along the continental shelf of the northeastern U.S. Several satellite data processing factors correlate with higher uncertainty in satellite retrievals of aCDOM, S275:295 and S300:600 within the coastal ocean, including solar zenith angle, sensor viewing angle, and atmospheric products applied for atmospheric corrections. Algorithms that include ultraviolet Rrs bands provide a better fit to field measurements than

  16. The connexin 30.3 of zebrafish homologue of human connexin 26 may play similar role in the inner ear. (United States)

    Chang-Chien, Ju; Yen, Yung-Chang; Chien, Kuo-Hsuan; Li, Shaun-Yow; Hsu, Tsai-Ching; Yang, Jiann-Jou


    The intercellular gap junction channels formed by connexins (CXs) are important for recycling potassium ions in the inner ear. CXs are encoded by a family of the CX gene, such as GJB2, and the mechanism leading to mutant connexin-associated diseases, including hearing loss, remains to be elucidated. In this study, using bioinformatics, we found that two zebrafish cx genes, cx27.5 and cx30.3, are likely homologous to human and mouse GJB2. During embryogenesis, zebrafish cx27.5 was rarely expressed at 1.5-3 h post-fertilization (hpf), but a relatively high level of cx27.5 expression was detected from 6 to 96 hpf. However, zebrafish cx30.3 transcripts were hardly detected until 9 hpf. The temporal experiment was conducted in whole larvae. Both cx27.5 and cx30.3 transcripts were revealed significantly in the inner ear by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and whole-mount in situ hybridization (WISH). In the HeLa cell model, we found that zebrafish Cx27.5 was distributed intracellularly in the cytoplasm, whereas Cx30.3 was localized in the plasma membrane of HeLa cells stably expressing Cx proteins. The expression pattern of zebrafish Cx30.3 in HeLa cells was more similar to that of cells expressing human CX26 than Cx27.5. In addition, we found that Cx30.3 was localized in the cell membrane of hair cells within the inner ear by immunohistochemistry (IHC), suggesting that zebrafish cx30.3 might play an essential role in the development of the inner ear, in the same manner as human GJB2. We then performed morpholino knockdown studies in zebrafish embryos to elucidate the physiological functions of Cx30.3. The zebrafish cx30.3 morphants exhibited wild-type-like and heart edema phenotypes with smaller inner ears at 72 hpf. Based on these results, we suggest that the zebrafish Cx30.3 and mammalian CX26 may play alike roles in the inner ear. Thus, zebrafish can potentially serve as a model for studying hearing loss disorders that result from human CX

    Highlights: • High cycle fatigue properties of CLAM steel were investigated at 723 K and 823 K. • The condition fatigue limit at N = 10{sup 7} were 275 MPa and 235 MPa at 723 K and 823 K. • Fatigue strength decreased when stress and temperature increased at 723 K and 823 K. • Dislocation density decrease and subgrain coarsening during the test process were the possible reasons for fatigue limit decrease. - Abstract: This paper highlights the results of a study on the high cycle fatigue strength and fracture mechanism of China Low Activation Martensitic (CLAM) steel. The high cycle fatigue test results showed that the fatigue strength of CLAM steel decreased with the temperature, and the condition fatigue strengths (N = 10{sup 7}) were 275 MPa and 235 MPa at 723 K and 823 K, respectively. The fractograph results indicated that the fractures were mainly initiated from the surface of the specimen.

    Full Text Available Torrefaction of selected wood samples of Pinus Carrebea and Leucaena Leucocephala were carried out at temperatures ranging from 200 to 300°C to improve the energy parameters of biomass and to determine the effect of torrefication temperature on the physical and combustion properties of wood selected from Pinus carrebea and Leuceanea leucocephala grown in Nigeria. In this process the biomass hemicellulose is degraded, maintaining its cellulose and lignin content. The samples were dried and heated to 225, 250, 275, and 300°C. Then the torrefied mass was subjected to basic property testing on proximate analysis and heating value was calculated in order to understand the differences between raw material and its torrefied products. Specifically, the wood blocks changed from light brown to black, stemming from the partial carbonization at the wood surface. When the temperature is 225°C, the color of the wood is between dark brown and once the torrefaction temperatures are 250 and 275°C, the colors of the wood become dark and darker respectively. The results of the proximate analysis also showed that increasing of torrefied temperature; volatile fraction was reduced while fixed carbon was increased with increase in temperature from 21.34 to 52.74 and 18.58 to 56.83 for Leucaena leucocephala and Pinus carreabeanus respectively at 225 to 300°C. The volatile content is decreased from 78.58% to 62.76% with increase in temperature. Ash content of were within 1.57-3.41% of torrefied wood. It could be observed that the High calorific value (HCV for pine ranged between 19.80 and 28.06MJ/Kg for the top, 19.93and 24.96MJ/kg for middle with 19.72and 25.96MJ/Kg for base. The values recorded for raw sample and at 275°C been the lowest and highest respectively. The High calorific value (HCV were found to be on the increase and nose dive at 300°C for the tree parts used in this research. The result revealed that for Leuceana the value increased from raw up to

  2. Two different phase-change origins with chemical- and structural-phase-changes in C doped (1.5 wt.%) In3Sb1Te2. (United States)

    Lee, Y M; Lee, S Y; Sasaki, T; Kim, K; Ahn, D; Jung, M-C


    We fabricated C-doped (1.5 wt.%) In3Sb1Te2 (CIST) thin films with amorphous phase (a-CIST) using a sputter method. Two electrical-phase-changes at 250 and 275 °C were observed in the sheet resistance measurement. In order to understand the origin of these electrical-phase-changes, all samples were characterized by XRD, TEM, and HRXPS with synchrotron radiation. In a-CIST, only weak Sb-C bonding was observed. In the first electrical-phase-change at 250 °C, strong Sb-C bonding occurred without an accompanying structural/phase change (still amorphous). On the other hand, the second electrical-phase-change at 275 °C was due to the structural/phase change from amorphous to crystalline without a chemical state change.

    U-Pb ages of zircon, monazite and xenotime from the Kude and the Sajia leucogranites in the Sajia dome of the North Himalayan tectonic unit are measured using TIMS method. The results show that the magma emplacement ages for the Kude and the Sajia leucogranite are 27.5 ±0.5 and 14.4± 0.2 Ma, respectively. Combined with published U-Pb data from the North Himalayan leucogranites, the time-span for the formation of the North Himalayan leucogranites is updated from 27.5 to 10 Ma, instead of previous 15 to 10 Ma. According to the U-Pb ages, the petrogenesis for the North Himalayan leucogranites can be constrained. It is suggested that the North Himalayan leucogranites have variety in their petrogenesis.

  4. Metalloproteins and the Pyrite-based Origin of Life: A Critical Assessment (United States)

    Rivas, Mario; Becerra, Arturo; Peretó, Juli; Bada, Jeffrey L.; Lazcano, Antonio


    We critically examine the proposal by Wächtershäuser (Prokaryotes 1:275-283, 2006a, Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 361: 787-1808, 2006b) that putative transition metal binding sites in protein components of the translation machinery of hyperthermophiles provide evidence of a direct relationship with the FeS clusters of pyrite and thus indicate an autotrophic origin of life in volcanic environments. Analysis of completely sequenced cellular genomes of Bacteria, Archaea and Eucarya does not support the suggestion by Wächtershäuser (Prokaryotes 1:275-283, 2006a, Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 361: 787-1808, 2006b) that aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases and ribosomal proteins bear sequence signatures typical of strong covalent metal bonding whose absence in mesophilic species reveals a process of adaptation towards less extreme environments.

  6. Fireball ejection from a molten hot spot to air by localized microwaves. (United States)

    Dikhtyar, Vladimir; Jerby, Eli


    A phenomenon of fireball ejection from hot spots in solid materials (silicon, germanium, glass, ceramics, basalt, etc.) to the atmosphere is presented. The hot spot is created in the substrate material by the microwave-drill mechanism [Jerby, Science 298, 587 (2002)10.1126/science.1077062]. The vaporized drop evolved from the hot spot is blown up, and forms a stable fireball buoyant in the air. The experimental observations of fireball ejection from silicate hot spots are referred to the Abrahamson-Dinniss theory [Nature (London) 403, 519 (2000)10.1038/35000525] suggesting a mechanism for ball-lightning initiation in nature. The fireballs observed in our experiments tend to absorb the available microwave power entirely, similarly to the plasmon resonance effect in submicron wavelengths [Nie and Emory, Science 275, 1102 (1997)10.1126/science.275.5303.1102].

  7. Life Satisfaction, Self-Esteem, and Loneliness Among LGB Adults and Heterosexual Adults in China. (United States)

    Hu, Jingchu; Hu, Jize; Huang, Gang; Zheng, Xifu


    Low levels of life satisfaction have been linked to low self-esteem and loneliness, but this association has never been tested directly in LGB (lesbian/gay/bisexual) populations. We compared 275 Chinese LGB adults to 275 demographic-matched Chinese heterosexual controls on life satisfaction, self-esteem, and loneliness. LGB adults reported lower levels of self-esteem and higher levels of loneliness than heterosexuals, but similar levels of overall life satisfaction. Self-esteem partially mediated (but did not moderate) the relationship between loneliness and life satisfaction in both groups. Hierarchical regressions indicated that demographic variables, loneliness, and self-esteem can predict life satisfaction in both LGB and heterosexual adults, but explained more variance of life satisfaction in the LGB group. Thus self-esteem and loneliness play a more important role in life satisfaction for LGB rather than heterosexual Chinese adults.

  8. Thermodynamic Investigation of the Azeotropic Mixture Composed of Water and Benzene

    NAN,Zhao-Dong(南照东); TAN,Zhi-Cheng(谭志诚)


    The molar heat capacity of the azeotropic mixture composed of water and benzene was measured by an adiabatic calorimeter in the temperature range from 80 to 320 K. The phase transitions took place in the temperature range from 265.409 to 275.165 K and 275.165 to 279.399 K. The phase transition temperatures were determined to be 272.945 and 278.339 K, which were corresponding to the solid-liquid phase transitions of water and benzene, respectively. The thermodynamic functions and the excess thermodynamic functions of the mixture relative to standard temperature 298.15 K were derived from the relationships of the thermodynamic functions and the function of the measured heat capacity with respect to temperature.

  10. Thermally Stable Siloxane Hybrid Matrix with Low Dielectric Loss for Copper-Clad Laminates for High-Frequency Applications. (United States)

    Kim, Yong Ho; Lim, Young-Woo; Kim, Yun Hyeok; Bae, Byeong-Soo


    We report vinyl-phenyl siloxane hybrid material (VPH) that can be used as a matrix for copper-clad laminates (CCLs) for high-frequency applications. The CCLs, with a VPH matrix fabricated via radical polymerization of resin blend consisting of sol-gel-derived linear vinyl oligosiloxane and bulky siloxane monomer, phenyltris(trimethylsiloxy)silane, achieve low dielectric constant (Dk) and dissipation factor (Df). The CCLs with the VPH matrix exhibit excellent dielectric performance (Dk = 2.75, Df = 0.0015 at 1 GHz) with stability in wide frequency range (1 MHz to 10 GHz) and at high temperature (up to 275 °C). Also, the VPH shows good flame resistance without any additives. These results suggest the potential of the VPH for use in high-speed IC boards.

    This paper investigates the relation between the intensity of solar radiation correlated with ambient temperature and energy production, at local scale and area, using a forecasting algorithm. In the first step, using the experimental collected data, the authors have developed a suitable model to study the analyzed phenomena. The model can be applied for forecasts in the energy sector, very useful especially because UAT (territorial administrative unit) of Alba Iulia has a 275kW functional photovoltaic park.

  15. Defining the erythrocyte binding domains of Plasmodium vivax tryptophan rich antigen 33.5.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Hema Bora

    Full Text Available Tryptophan-rich antigens play important role in host-parasite interaction. One of the Plasmodium vivax tryptophan-rich antigens called PvTRAg33.5 had earlier been shown to be predominantly of alpha helical in nature with multidomain structure, induced immune responses in humans, binds to host erythrocytes, and its sequence is highly conserved in the parasite population. In the present study, we divided this protein into three different parts i.e. N-terminal (amino acid position 24-106, middle (amino acid position 107-192, and C-terminal region (amino acid position 185-275 and determined the erythrocyte binding activity of these fragments. This binding activity was retained by the middle and C-terminal fragments covering 107 to 275 amino acid region of the PvTRAg33.5 protein. Eight non-overlapping peptides covering this 107 to 275 amino acid region were then synthesized and tested for their erythrocyte binding activity to further define the binding domains. Only two peptides, peptide P4 (at 171-191 amino acid position and peptide P8 (at 255-275 amino acid position, were found to contain the erythrocyte binding activity. Competition assay revealed that each peptide recognizes its own erythrocyte receptor. These two peptides were found to be located on two parallel helices at one end of the protein in the modelled structure and could be exposed on its surface to form a suitable site for protein-protein interaction. Natural antibodies present in the sera of the P. vivax exposed individuals or the polyclonal rabbit antibodies against this protein were able to inhibit the erythrocyte binding activity of PvTRAg33.5, its fragments, and these two synthetic peptides P4 and P8. Further studies on receptor-ligand interaction might lead to the development of the therapeutic reagent.

    Conclusions: When compared to the standardised Quick DASH outcomes (no work limitation at 27.5 vs. work limited by injury at 52.6 the non-physician clinicians appear to be performing upper extremity repairs with good outcomes. The key variable to successful repair was the initial injury type. Although accommodations needed to be made to the standard Quick DASH protocol, the tool appears to be usable in non-traditional settings.
