    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Fibrosis is the process of excessive deposition of collagen and other extra cellular matrix components and large amounts of these components have been shown in periovular schistosomal granulomas, especially in the liver. Laminin and type IV collagen have been investigated in various hepatic disorders but their accuracy in fibrosis detection and in the evaluation of its progression in schistosomiasis have not been fully explained. AIM: To measure the serum levels of two markers of fibrosis, laminin and type IV collagen in schistosomiasis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Sixty-four patients with different clinical forms of schistosomiasis mansoni: intestinal (group I, hepatointestinal (group II, compensated (group III and decompensated hepatosplenic (group IV and 18 healthy volunteers were included. RESULTS: Serum type IV collagen and laminin levels were significantly increased in patients compared to controls. At about clinical forms, serum type IV collagen was increased in groups II and IV, compared to controls and was significantly higher in group IV than in group I. Serum laminin was significantly increased in groups II, III and IV and was significantly higher in group IV than in group II. Serum type IV collagen was closely correlated with serum laminin in groups II and IV. CONCLUSIONS: Connective tissue marker levels did not correlate with periportal thickness. In schistosomiasis mansoni there is an increase of type IV collagen and laminin levels at the initial stage of the disease, as well as in advanced forms. We also suggest that these markers may be a useful predictor of disease progression.RACIONAL: A fibrose hepática é caracterizada por um aumento progressivo na quantidade do tecido conjuntivo hepático, que é formado pelo aumento na deposição de componentes da matriz extracelular, tendo sido encontrada grande quantidade desses componentes no fígado de pacientes com esquistossomose mansoni.

    Full Text Available The objective of this work was to identify key locations for the establishment of soybean (Glycine max genetic breeding programs, in the Central Region of Brazil. Grain yield data of three maturity groups of soybean genotypes, from regional trials conducted over three years, at 18 locations in Brazilian Cerrado were used. A key location for the early phases of the breeding program was defined as the site that best classifies the winning genotypes in the region. Key locations for the final phases were defined as those sites that best represent each environmental stratum, in relation to the adaptability of the respective winning genotype. This adaptability was estimated by additive main effects and multiplicative interaction (AMMI model analysis, using the distance between the score of each location in a stratum and the score of the winning genotype, which characterizes such stratum in an AMMI biplot. The locations that best classified the winning genotypes over space and time were Mineiros, Placas and Rio Verde. For the final phases of genotype selection, with data from the three maturity group, the recommended locations were: Buritis, Chapadão do Céu, Iraí, Pamplona, Placas, Planaltina, Rio Verde, Sacramento, Senador Canedo, Uberaba, and Uberlândia.O objetivo deste trabalho foi identificar locais-chave para o estabelecimento de programas de melhoramento genético de soja (Glycine max, na Região Central do Brasil.

DESCRIÇÃO DO CASO: Menino de tez escura de quatro anos, cujo pai apresentava manchas café-com-leite e história de cirurgia de tumor de ouvido. A criança evoluiu com um adequado desenvolvimento neuropsicomotor, sem crises convulsivas ou déficit de aprendizagem. Ao exame físico, possuía múltiplas manchas café-com-leite e efélides. A avaliação pela ressonância nuclear magnética de encéfalo evidenciou múltiplas imagens nodulares hiperintensas em T2 e Flair, com isossinal em T1, localizadas na substância branca dos hemisférios cerebrais, cerebelo e tronco cerebral. Apresentava ainda lesão hamartomatosa pré-quiasmática. A avaliação eletroencefalográfica e o exame neurológico eram normais. COMENTÁRIOS: As imagens hiperintensas verificadas na ressonância nuclear magnética correspondem aos chamados unidentified bright objects (UBOs, observados em de 60 a 70% das crianças com neurofibromatose do tipo 1, sendo raros em adultos. Sua etiologia e significado clínico ainda não são claros. Alguns estudos os têm associado à disfunção cognitiva, déficit neurológico e risco de malignização. Hamartomas localizados próximos ao quiasma óptico são incomuns, mas podem se relacionar à puberdade precoce. A avaliação do sistema nervoso central de crianças assintomáticas com neurofibromatose do tipo 1 é discutível. Contudo, nos casos em que UBOs sejam identificados, é importante considerar seu seguimento radiológico, especialmente diante de lesões múltiplas ou atípicas.OBJECTIVE:To report a child with neurofibromatosis type 1 presenting the occasional central nervous system feature of multiple hyperintensities and a prechiasmatic hamartomatous lesion.

  12. Model of automatic fuel management for the Atucha II nuclear central with the PUMA IV code

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The Atucha II central is a heavy water power station and natural uranium. For this reason and due to the first floor reactivity excess that have this type of reactors, it is necessary to carry out a continuous fuel management and with the central in power (for the case of Atucha II every 0.7 days approximately). To maintain in operation these centrals and to achieve a good fuels economy, different types of negotiate of fuels that include areas and roads where the fuels displace inside the core are proved; it is necessary to prove the great majority of these managements in long periods in order to corroborate the behavior of the power station and the burnt of extraction of the fuel elements. To carry out this work it is of great help that a program implements the approaches to continue in each replacement, using the roads and areas of each administration type to prove, and this way to obtain as results the one regulations execution in the time and the average burnt of extraction of the fuel elements, being fundamental this last data for the operator company of the power station. To carry out the previous work it is necessary that a physicist with experience in fuel management proves each one of the possible managements, even those that quickly can be discarded if its don't fulfill with the regulatory standards or its possess an average extraction burnt too much low. For this it is of fundamental help that with an automatic model the different administrations are proven and lastly the physicist analyzes the more important cases. The pattern in question not only allows to program different types of roads and areas of fuel management, but rather it also foresees the possibility to disable some of the approaches. (Author)

A combinação de uma luxação acromioclavicular e de uma fratura do terço lateral da clavícula não é rara. Entretanto, existem muito poucos casos descritos de luxações acromioclaviculares associadas a fraturas do terço médio da clavícula; aquelas associadas a fraturas do terço medial são ainda mais raras. Nós reportamos o caso de um indivíduo adulto do sexo masculino que sofreu uma luxação acromioclavicular (tipo IV associada a uma fratura extra-articular desviada da extremidade medial da clavícula (grupo 3 de Almann em um acidente ciclístico. O paciente foi tratado na fase aguda com redução aberta e fixação interna das duas lesões. Na avaliação clínica, 12 meses após a cirurgia, o paciente apresentava-se assintomático, com mobilidade ativa e passiva completa, força e resistência normais e simetria das cinturas escapulares.

Durante las últimas décadas, estos dispositivos han experimentado una evolución tecnológica importante de manera que actualmente permiten su utilización de forma repetida, en régimen ambulatorio y para diferentes aplicaciones médicas, (administración de nutrición parenteral, administración de medicamentos o para la simple extracción de muestras sanguíneas. Gracias a esta evolución tecnológica, se ha incrementado la calidad de vida de los pacientes tanto por la mayor facilidad de utilización, como en la reducción del número de ingresos hospitalarios, mejorando así su balance coste/beneficio. Al igual que en cualquier otra técnica médico-quirúrgica, no están exentos de complicaciones derivadas bien del implante, utilización o mantenimiento en el tiempo de estos dispositivos y que es objeto principal de nuestra revisión. Consideramos necesario realizar esta revisión como control interno de las complicaciones surgidas así como herramienta de vigilancia sobre la técnica de implante y en relación con una apreciación subjetiva del incremento de las complicaciones de carácter trombótico en nuestra serie. Mostramos como la estandarización de la técnica de implante y la unificación de criterios a la hora de realizar el mantenimiento de los mismos por parte de los equipos de enfermería parece que reduce el número de complicaciones. Revisada la bibliografía, hemos constatado que nuestras cifras se presentan como buenas o muy buenas en el rango de las complicaciones advertidas y contabilizadas en una revisión de 473 historias clínicas de pacientes oncológicos tratados con fármacos quimioterápicos a través de este tipo de dispositivos.This review, describe and depict the complications

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Studies on the effect of Lathyrus Sativus seeds (LLS) on aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) and on dipeptidyl-aminopeptidase-IV (DAP-IV) were carried out in the central and peripheral tissues and serum of LSS-treated and LSS plus vitamin C-treated guinea pigs. The feeding of LSS for 35 days decreased the AADC activity significantly in the brain and peripheral tissues, but the activity was recovered to normal level in the most tissues when vitamin C was added with the LSS. DAP-IV activity decreased in the peripheral tissues when treated with LSS, but the vitamin C administration with LSS did not recover the enzyme activity. The DAP-IV activity did not decrease significantly in any of the brain tissues of the LSS-treated group. (author). 18 refs, 2 tabs

    One of the main preoccupations of the electric power generator stations is the appropriate operation of the same ones. The operators must be qualified to respond in an adequate way and to be able to take to these power stations to an optimal, sure and stable operation condition under any circumstance. The Laboratory of Analysis in Nuclear Reactors Engineering (LAIRN) of the Engineering Faculty of UNAM (Fl) in collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it develops an interactive classroom simulator in which simulations of the phenomena which take place in a nuclear power station are executed. The classroom simulator bases its operation on specialized nuclear codes feeding interactive graphic unfolding with those that it is possible to make a monitoring, supervision and control of the behavior of the power station under any operation regime, either in normal operation, transitory events or postulated accident sequence. The development of this classroom simulator includes a modular and re configurable structure. Due to it is indispensable to count with a higher inter activity with the system it is included the simulation of the control system of the plant and inside the same, one of those more important it is the reactor pressure control system. The present work describes the conceptual design and the used methodology for the development and implementation in the simulator of a simplified model of the pressure control system for a BWR generic central. The reach of the development will allow to accomplish the necessary tests to demonstrate that this has an adequate performance according to the carried out simplifications. (Author)

    . Asteroids, like planets, are driven by a great variety of both dynamical and physical mechanisms. In fact, images sent back by space missions show a collection of small worlds whose characteristics seem designed to overthrow our preconceived notions. Given their wide range of sizes and surface compositions, it is clear that many formed in very different places and at different times within the solar nebula. These characteristics make them an exciting challenge for researchers who crave complex problems. The return of samples from these bodies may ultimately be needed to provide us with solutions. In the book Asteroids IV, the editors and authors have taken major strides in the long journey toward a much deeper understanding of our fascinating planetary ancestors. This book reviews major advances in 43 chapters that have been written and reviewed by a team of more than 200 international authorities in asteroids. It is aimed to be as comprehensive as possible while also remaining accessible to students and researchers who are interested in learning about these small but nonetheless important worlds. We hope this volume will serve as a leading reference on the topic of asteroids for the decade to come. We are deeply indebted to the many authors and referees for their tremendous efforts in helping us create Asteroids IV. We also thank the members of the Asteroids IV scientific organizing committee for helping us shape the structure and content of the book. The conference associated with the book, "Asteroids Comets Meteors 2014" held June 30-July 4, 2014, in Helsinki, Finland, did an outstanding job of demonstrating how much progress we have made in the field over the last decade. We are extremely grateful to our host Karri Muinonnen and his team. The editors are also grateful to the Asteroids IV production staff, namely Renée Dotson and her colleagues at the Lunar and Planetary Institute, for their efforts, their invaluable assistance, and their enthusiasm; they made life as

  6. Ensemble Input of Group III/IV Muscle Afferents to CNS: A Limiting Factor of Central Motor Drive During Endurance Exercise from Normoxia to Moderate Hypoxia.

    Amann, Markus; Dempsey, Jerome A

    2016-01-01

    We recently hypothesized that across the range of normoxia to severe hypoxia the major determinant of central motor drive (CMD) during endurance exercise switches from a predominantly peripheral origin to a hypoxic-sensitive central component of fatigue. We found that peripheral locomotor muscle fatigue (pLMF) is the prevailing factor limiting central motor drive and therefore exercise performance from normoxia to moderate hypoxia (SaO2 > 75 %). In these levels of arterial hypoxemia, the development of pLMF is confined to a certain limit which varies between humans-pLMF does not develop to this limit in more severe hypoxia (SaO2 endurance exercise with the purpose to regulate and restrict the level of exercise-induced pLMF to an "individual critical threshold." To experimentally test this model, we pharmacologically blocked somatosensory pathways originating in the working limbs during cycling exercise in normoxia. After initial difficulties with a local anesthetic (epidural lidocaine, L3-L4) and associated loss of locomotor muscle strength we switched to an intrathecally applied opioid analgesic (fentanyl, L3-L4). These experiments were the first ever to selectively block locomotor muscle afferents during high-intensity cycling exercise without affecting maximal locomotor muscle strength. In the absence of opioid-mediated neural feedback from the working limbs, CMD was increased and end-exercise pLMF substantially exceeded, for the first time, the individual critical threshold of peripheral fatigue. The outcome of these studies confirm our hypothesis claiming that afferent feedback inhibits CMD and restricts the development of pLMF to an individual critical threshold as observed from normoxia up to moderate hypoxia.

    The equilibrium solubility of neptunium (IV) oxalate in nitric/oxalic acid solutions was determined at 220C, 450C, and 600C. The concentrations of nitric/oxalic acid solutions represented a wide range of free oxalate ion concentration. A mathematical solubility model was developed which is based on the formation of the known complexes of neptunium (IV) oxalate. the solubility model uses a simplified concentration parameter which is proportional to the free oxalate ion concentration. The solubility model can be used to estimate the equilibrium solubility of neptunium (IV) oxalate over a wide range of oxalic and nitric acid concentrations at each temperature

    We study the characteristics of moving type IV radio bursts that extend to hectometric wavelengths (interplanetary type IV or type {IV}_{{IP}} bursts) and their relationship with energetic phenomena on the Sun. Our dataset comprises 48 interplanetary type IV bursts observed with the Radio and Plasma Wave Investigation (WAVES) instrument onboard Wind in the 13.825 MHz - 20 kHz frequency range. The dynamic spectra of the Radio Solar Telescope Network (RSTN), the Nançay Decametric Array (DAM), the Appareil de Routine pour le Traitement et l' Enregistrement Magnetique de l' Information Spectral (ARTEMIS-IV), the Culgoora, Hiraso, and the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio Wave Propagation (IZMIRAN) Radio Spectrographs were used to track the evolution of the events in the low corona. These were supplemented with soft X-ray (SXR) flux-measurements from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) and coronal mass ejections (CME) data from the Large Angle and Spectroscopic Coronagraph (LASCO) onboard the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). Positional information of the coronal bursts was obtained by the Nançay Radioheliograph (NRH). We examined the relationship of the type IV events with coronal radio bursts, CMEs, and SXR flares. The majority of the events (45) were characterized as compact, their duration was on average 106 minutes. This type of events was, mostly, associated with M- and X-class flares (40 out of 45) and fast CMEs, 32 of these events had CMEs faster than 1000 km s^{-1}. Furthermore, in 43 compact events the CME was possibly subjected to reduced aerodynamic drag as it was propagating in the wake of a previous CME. A minority (three) of long-lived type {IV}_{{IP}} bursts was detected, with durations from 960 minutes to 115 hours. These events are referred to as extended or long duration and appear to replenish their energetic electron content, possibly from electrons escaping from the corresponding coronal

    Sector CP IV is located in the NE portion of the Cerrro Prieto geothermal field. The wells of this zone produce two-phase fluids, with different characteristics as far as their steam fraction content; in the central part and towards the NW the fluids are of dominant liquid type whereas towards the E and the S, the fluid contains a relatively higher steam fraction. The results of gaseous equilibrium FT- HSH3 showed that the fluids in the deposit are at temperatures between 275 Celsius degrees and 310 Celsius degrees and contain steam fractions between 0.01 and 0.5. The data found for the natural state are aligned in a tendency defined in the diagram FT- HSH3, that suggest the wells receive different proportions from preexisting steam in the deposit, which are mixed with the liquid phase to produce the observed discharges. The present data, besides showing the presence of deposit steam, also indicates the entrance of lower temperature fluid in the central part of sector CP IV.

    Full Text Available Stage IV non-small cell lung cancer is a fatal disease, with a median survival of 14 months. Systemic chemotherapy is the most common approach. However the impact in overall survival and quality of life still a controversy. OBJECTIVES: To determine differences in overall survival and quality of life among patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer non-metastatic to the brain treated with best supportive care versus systemic chemotherapy. PATIENTS: From February 1990 through December 1995, 78 eligible patients were admitted with the diagnosis of stage IV non-small cell lung cancer . Patients were divided in 2 groups: Group A (n=31 -- treated with best supportive care , and Group B (n=47 -- treated with systemic chemotherapy. RESULTS: The median survival time was 23 weeks (range 5 -- 153 weeks in Group A and 55 weeks (range 7.4 -- 213 weeks in Group B (p=0.0018. In both groups, the incidence of admission for IV antibiotics and need of blood transfusions were similar. Patients receiving systemic chemotherapy were also stratified into those receiving mytomycin, vinblastin, and cisplatinum, n=25 and those receiving other combination regimens (platinum derivatives associated with other drugs, n=22. Patients receiving mytomycin, vinblastin, and cisplatinum, n=25 had a higher incidence of febrile neutropenia and had their cycles delayed for longer periods of time than the other group. These patients also had a shorter median survival time (51 versus 66 weeks, p=0.005. CONCLUSION: In patients with stage IV non-small cell lung cancer, non-metastatic to the brain, chemotherapy significantly increases survival compared with best supportive care.O câncer de pulmão de células não pequenas em estádio IV é uma doença fatal, com uma sobrevida mediana de seis meses.

    Full Text Available Preanuncio del Tipo de Cambio y Desempleo Keynesiano In 1978, Argentina, Chile and Uruguay adopted a stabilization policy based on exchange rate preannouncement. The aim of this paper is to study the consequences of such a policy from a analytical point of view. The paper stands on a two-sector disequilibrium model, in which there is a price level inertia in the labor market as well as in the non·traded goods market. Themain stylized facts are reproduced. It is shown, particularly, that the exchange rate preannouncement had to give rise to an economic boom first, and a keynesian unemployment situation later.

    Full Text Available In this paper we approach a diachronic comparative study through space syntax analysis methodology of a set of courtyard houses from the East of the Iberian Peninsula dated between the IVth century and the IInd B.C., period previous and immediately to the beginning of Roman domination of these regions. These big complex houses with courtyard have been interpreted as the residences of minority powerful groups, that is to say, local aristocracy. In view of this, we shall try to study the evolution of this social class during this period characterized by economic and politic changes. Domestic space syntax analyses allows us to see the consequences of the adoption of formal changes in houses, for the social relationships. The high syntactic complexity observed in protohistorical houses is the main difference between these and roman houses.Presentamos un estudio comparativo diacrónico a través de la metodología analítica de la sintaxis espacial de un conjunto de casas de patio del este de la Península Ibérica datadas entre el siglo IV y el II a. C., periodo anterior e inmediatamente posterior al inicio de la conquista romana de esta región. Estas grandes casas complejas y con patio han sido interpretadas como las residencias de grupos minoritarios y poderosos: las aristocracias locales. A partir de esta idea trataremos de conocer el comportamiento y evolución de esta clase social durante el periodo de cambio que abordamos. La aplicación de un análisis sintáctico del espacio sobre una serie de casos nos ha permitido conocer las diferentes connotaciones que pueden adquirir las casas con patio. La principal diferencia entre las casas prerromanas e hispanorromanas está marcada por la mayor complejidad sintáctica de las primeras, que procede de las formas de la tradición indígena.

    Bacterial type IV secretion systems translocate virulence factors into eukaryotic cells, distribute genetic material between bacteria and have shown potential as a tool for the genetic modification of human cells. Given the complex choreography of the substrate through the secretion apparatus, the molecular mechanism of the type IV secretion system has proved difficult to dissect in the absence of structural data for the entire machinery. Here we use electron microscopy to reconstruct the type IV secretion system encoded by the Escherichia coli R388 conjugative plasmid. We show that eight proteins assemble in an intricate stoichiometric relationship to form an approximately 3 megadalton nanomachine that spans the entire cell envelope. The structure comprises an outer membrane-associated core complex connected by a central stalk to a substantial inner membrane complex that is dominated by a battery of 12 VirB4 ATPase subunits organized as side-by-side hexameric barrels. Our results show a secretion system with markedly different architecture, and consequently mechanism, to other known bacterial secretion systems. PMID:24670658

    Aqueous complexation of Th(IV), U(IV), Np(IV), Pu(III/IV), and Ce(III/IV) with DTPA was studied by potentiometry, absorption spectrophotometry, and cyclic voltammetry at 1 M ionic strength and 25 °C. The stability constants for the 1:1 complex of each trivalent and tetravalent metal were calculated. From the potentiometric data, we report stability constant values for Ce(III)DTPA, Ce(III)HDTPA, and Th(IV)DTPA of log β(101) = 20.01 ± 0.02, log β(111) = 22.0 ± 0.2, and log β(101) = 29.6 ± 1, respectively. From the absorption spectrophotometry data, we report stability constant values for U(IV)DTPA, Np(IV)DTPA, and Pu(IV)DTPA of log β(101) = 31.8 ± 0.1, 32.3 ± 0.1, and 33.67 ± 0.02, respectively. From the cyclic voltammetry data, we report stability constant values for Ce(IV) and Pu(III) of log β(101) = 34.04 ± 0.04 and 20.58 ± 0.04, respectively. The values obtained in this work are compared and discussed with respect to the ionic radius of each cationic metal.

    The obtained results are presented when simulating with CM-PRESTO code the cycle 10 of the unit 1 of the Laguna Verde Central, using two advanced types of control bars, besides the originally loaded ones. The two advanced types, to those that are denominated 1AV and 2AV in this work, are of different design, however both have in some place of the bar, a section with hafnium like neutron absorber material. They thought about three different scenarios, in the first one, used as reference, is simulated the cycle 10 using the original control bars, while in the other two cases the advanced types are used. The values of the reactivity were compared and of some margins to the thermal limits obtained when using the bars of advanced type, with those obtained in the case in that alone they are considered those original bars. It was found that in condition of power both advanced types present bigger absorber power of neutrons that the original bars, being quantified in average this bigger power in 0.22 pcm/notch for the type 1AV and in 0.51 pcm/notch for the type 2AV. The affectation of the margins to the observed thermal limits is minimum. (Author)

The independent factor structure of each of the tests has been identified; however, the combined factor structure has yet to be determined. Confirmatory factor analysis was applied to the WAIS-IV/WMS-IV Adult battery (i.e., age 16-69 years) co-norming sample (n = 900) to test 13 measurement models. The results indicated that two models fit the data equally well. One model is a seven-factor solution without a hierarchical general ability factor: Verbal Comprehension, Perceptual Reasoning, Processing Speed, Auditory Working Memory, Visual Working Memory, Auditory Memory, and Visual Memory. The second model is a five-factor model composed of Verbal Comprehension, Perceptual Reasoning, Processing Speed, Working Memory, and Memory with a hierarchical general ability factor. Interpretative implications for each model are discussed.

In particular, the real world effectiveness of a drug as evaluated in an observational, non-interventional trial in a naturalistic setting which complements the efficacy data that emanates from a pre-marketing randomized controlled trial (RCT). No matter how many patients are studied pre-marketing in a controlled environment, the true safety profile of a drug is characterized only by continuing safety surveillance through a spontaneous adverse event monitoring system and a post-marketing surveillance/non-interventional study. Prevalent practice patterns can generate leads that could result in further evaluation of a new indication via the RCT route or even a signal that may necessitate regulatory action (change in labeling, risk management/minimization action plan). Disease registries are another option as are the large simple hybrid trials. Surveillance of spontaneously reported adverse events continues as long as a product is marketed.

    Full Text Available La muerte celular programada es un evento fisiológico durante el desarrollo. En el encéfalo y la médula espinal, este proceso determina el número y la localización de los diferentes tipos celulares. En el sistema nervioso del adulto, la muerte celular programada o apoptosis está más restringida, pero puede jugar un papel determinante en enfermedades crónicas o agudas. Al contrario de otros tejidos en los cuales la apoptosis está documentada ampliamente desde el punto de vista morfológico, en el sistema nervioso central la evidencia en este sentido es escasa. A pesar de esto, existe consenso acerca de la activación de diferentes sistemas de señalización apoptótica. En el presente artículo se intenta resumir las principales vías de señalización apoptótica identificadas en el tejido nervioso. Considerando que las vías apoptóticas son múltiples, los tipos neuronales diversos y especializados y que la respuesta neuronal a la lesión y la supervivencia dependen del contexto de la célula en el tejido (preservación de la conectividad, integridad glial y matriz extracelular, flujo sanguíneo y disponibilidad de factores tróficos, lo que es relevante en el proceso apoptótico en un sector del cerebro puede no serlo en otro.

  3. Las copas tipo Cástulo en la Península Ibérica

    Full Text Available The Castulo cup is one of the most common black glaze Attic forms in the Iberian Peninsula from the Atlantic coast to Ampurias. Their date in the Iberian Peninsula is some years later than that proposed for Athens. They did not appear till some years after the second half of the 5th c. B.C. Their production probably continued until the first quarter of the 4th century B.C. They are almost fixed in their form for about a century, but some differences in the outside decoration and the underside of the foot can be pointed out. Two main types are proposed for the second half of the 5th century and the first quarter of the 4th century B.C. The differences in date compared with those found at Athens can be explained as an adaptation of the workshops to the demands of Iberian customers. Athen's artisans continued making Castulo cups for export at a time when in Athens they did not use them any more, because the stemless cup had been replaced by the popular kantharoi and cup-kantharoi.

    La copa Cástulo es una de las formas áticas de barniz negro más abundante en los yacimientos peninsulares desde la costa atlántica hasta Ampurias. Su cronología es en la Península Ibérica algo posterior a la propuesta para Atenas. No aparecen hasta algo después de mediados del siglo V y probablemente se continúan fabricando hasta el primer cuarto del IV a. C. No experimentan durante casi un siglo de producción ninguna variación formal, sin embargo sí se pueden ver diferencias en el tratamiento de la decoración exterior y del fondo externo. Se proponen aquí fundamentalmente dos tipos de la segunda mitad del siglo V y primer cuarto del IV a. C. La diferencia cronológica con las halladas en Atenas se explica como una adaptación de los talleres áticos a la demanda de los clientes ibéricos. Los artesanos atenienses continúan fabricando copas Cástulo para la exportación cuando en Atenas se han dejado ya de utilizar las copas de pie bajo al ser

  4. IVS contribution to ITRF2014

    2016-07-01

    Every few years the International Terrestrial Reference System (ITRS) Center of the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS) decides to generate a new version of the International Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF). For the upcoming ITRF2014 the official contribution of the International VLBI Service for Geodesy and Astrometry (IVS) comprises 5796 combined sessions in SINEX file format from 1979.6 to 2015.0 containing 158 stations, overall. Nine AC contributions were included in the combination process, using five different software packages. Station coordinate time series of the combined solution show an overall repeatability of 3.3 mm for the north, 4.3 mm for the east and 7.5 mm for the height component over all stations. The minimum repeatabilities are 1.5 mm for north, 2.1 mm for east and 2.9 mm for height. One of the important differences between the IVS contribution to the ITRF2014 and the routine IVS combination is the omission of the correction for non-tidal atmospheric pressure loading (NTAL). Comparisons between the amplitudes of the annual signals derived by the VLBI observations and the annual signals from an NTAL model show that for some stations, NTAL has a high impact on station height variation. For other stations, the effect of NTAL is low. Occasionally other loading effects have a higher influence (e.g. continental water storage loading). External comparisons of the scale parameter between the VTRF2014 (a TRF based on combined VLBI solutions), DTRF2008 (DGFI-TUM realization of ITRS) and ITRF2008 revealed a significant difference in the scale. A scale difference of 0.11 ppb (i.e. 0.7 mm on the Earth's surface) has been detected between the VTRF2014 and the DTRF2008, and a scale difference of 0.44 ppb (i.e. 2.8 mm on the Earth's surface) between the VTRF2014 and ITRF2008. Internal comparisons between the EOP of the combined solution and the individual solutions from the AC contributions show a WRMS in X- and Y-Pole between

    Full Text Available O objetivo neste estudo foi investigar a existência de diferentes perfis de relacionamento consumidor-marca e sua respectiva eficiência na relação comercial. Três construtos da teoria de relacionamento com marcas foram avaliados: autoconexão, intimidade e interdependência com a marca. Foi realizado um survey com 441 casos. Os dados foram analisados por técnicas de cluster, fatorial e ANOVA. Três diferentes perfis foram encontrados: o relacionamento por inércia (RI, o qual sugere uma relação superficial e com menor poder de diferenciação sobre a marca; o relacionamento moderado (RM, o qual registrou avaliações intermediárias em todas as variáveis; o relacionamento verdadeiro (RV, o qual demonstra maior proximidade e conexão com a marca. Para verificar a eficiência desses tipos, foram avaliados os índices de satisfação, confiança, comprometimento e lealdade. Consumidores do tipo RI tendem a trocar de marca tão logo percebam vantagens maiores em outros concorrentes. Já os RM demonstram certa tendência de atitudes positivas em relação à marca, dependendo de seu contexto e oferta. O grupo RV demonstra maior tendência à continuidade do relacionamento. Do ponto de vista gerencial, perceber diferentes intensidades de relacionamento permite reconhecer que nem todo relacionamento é eficiente.

    In the current paper we have investigated a well-behaved new model of anisotropic compact star in (3+1)-dimensional spacetime. The exterior spacetime is described by the Schwarzschild vacuum solution. The model is obtained in the background of Tolman IV g_{rr} metric potential. Our model is free from central singularities and satisfies all energy conditions. The solution is compatible with observed masses and radii of a few compact stars like Her X-1, PSR J0737-3039A, PSR B1913+16, RX J1856.5-3754, Cyg X-2 and PSR J1903+0327.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pablo De Ioannes

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available DNA ligase IV (LigIV and Artemis are central components of the nonhomologous end-joining (NHEJ machinery that is required for V(DJ recombination and the maintenance of genomic integrity in mammalian cells. We report here crystal structures of the LigIV DNA binding domain (DBD in both its apo form and in complex with a peptide derived from the Artemis C-terminal region. We show that LigIV interacts with Artemis through an extended hydrophobic surface. In particular, we find that the helix α2 in LigIV-DBD is longer than in other mammalian ligases and presents residues that specifically interact with the Artemis peptide, which adopts a partially helical conformation on binding. Mutations of key residues on the LigIV-DBD hydrophobic surface abolish the interaction. Together, our results provide structural insights into the specificity of the LigIV-Artemis interaction and how the enzymatic activities of the two proteins may be coordinated during NHEJ.

  18. Studies of binary cerium(IV)-praseodymium(IV) and cerium(IV)-terbium(IV) oxides as pigments for ceramic applications

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    It was investigated a series of pigments of general composition Ce1-x Prx O2, and Cex Tby O2, exhibiting radish and brown colors, respectively, and high temperature stability. The pigments were obtained by dissolving appropriate amounts of the pure lanthanide oxides in acids and precipitating the rare earths as mixed oxalates, which were isolated and calcined under air, at 10000 C. X-Ray powder diffractograms were consistent with a cubic structure for the pigments. Magnetic susceptibility measurements, using Gouy method, indicated the presence of Pr(IV) ions in the Ce1-x Prx O2 pigments and of Terbium predominantly as Tb(III) ions in the Ce-tb mixed oxides. A new method, based on suspension of solid samples in PVA-STB gels (STB = sodium tetradecaborate), was employed for the measurements of the electronic spectra of the pigments. The thermal behaviour the pigments was investigated by the calcination of the oxalates in the temperature range of 500 to 1200O C, from 10 to 60 minutes. (author)

    The goals of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility’s third and fourth Airborne Carbon Measurements (ACME) field campaigns, ACME-III and ACME-IV, are: 1) to measure and model the exchange of CO2, water vapor, and other greenhouse gases by the natural, agricultural, and industrial ecosystems of the Southern Great Plains (SGP) region; 2) to develop quantitative approaches to relate these local fluxes to the concentration of greenhouse gases measured at the Central Facility tower and in the atmospheric column above the ARM SGP Central Facility, 3) to develop and test bottom-up measurement and modeling approaches to estimate regional scale carbon balances, and 4) to develop and test inverse modeling approaches to estimate regional scale carbon balance and anthropogenic sources over continental regions. Regular soundings of the atmosphere from near the surface into the mid-troposphere are essential for this research.

  20. Materials for generation-IV nuclear reactors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Materials science and materials development are key issues for the implementation of innovative reactor systems such as those defined in the framework of the Generation IV. Six systems have been selected for Generation IV consideration: gas-cooled fast reactor, lead-cooled fast reactor, molten salt-cooled reactor, sodium-cooled fast reactor, supercritical water-cooled reactor, and very high temperature reactor. The structural materials need to resist much higher temperatures, higher neutron doses and extremely corrosive environment, which are beyond the experience of the current nuclear power plants. For this reason, the first consideration in the development of Generation-IV concepts is selection and deployment of materials that operate successfully in the aggressive operating environments expected in the Gen-IV concepts. This paper summarizes the Gen-IV operating environments and describes the various candidate materials under consideration for use in different structural applications. (author)

  1. Thermodynamic data for predicting concentrations of Th(IV), U(IV), Np(IV), and Pu(IV) in geologic environments

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This report provides thermodynamic data for predicting concentrations of Th(IV), U(IV), Np(IV), and Pu(IV) in geologic environments, and contributes to an integration of the JNC chemical thermodynamic database, JNC-TDB (previously PNC-TDB), for the performance analysis of geological isolation system for high-level radioactive wastes. Thermodynamic data for the formation of complexes or compounds with hydroxide, chloride, fluoride, carbonate, nitrate, sulfate and phosphate are discussed in this report. Where data for specific actinide(IV) species was lacking, the data were selected based on chemical analogy to other tetravalent actinides. In this study, the Pitzer ion-interaction model is used to extrapolate thermodynamic constants to zero ionic strength at 25degC. (author)

    Full Text Available The silverleaf whitefly is one of most important pests of tomato (Lycopersicon spp.. The use of host plant resistance to control this insect is an interesting, potentially useful technique, but in demand of more research. The objectives of this work were to evaluate the oviposition non-preference of Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius, 1889 biotype B for different tomato plant genotypes, evaluating the correlation between oviposition preference and pubescence in the genotypes, and analyzing the abaxial and adaxial surfaces of Lycopersicon pennellii leaflets under the scanning electron microscope. Four wild tomato genotypes, LA 716 (L. pennellii; PI 127826 and PI 127827 (L. hirsutum; PI 134417 (L. hirsutum f. glabratum, and two commercial genotypes, Santa Clara and Bruna VFN hybrid (L. esculentum were evaluated for number of eggs cm-2 in free and no-choice oviposition tests, using randomized block design and completely randomized design, respectively. The number of trichome was measured in 4 mm² and coefficients of correlation between number of trichomes and number of eggs were calculated. The wild genotypes LA 716 and PI 134417 were less preferred showing oviposition nonpreference resistance type in both tests. The Bruna VFN and Santa Clara were more preferred in free-choice test, while wild genotypes PI 127826 and PI 127827 were more preferred in no-choice test. L. pennellii leaflets presented glandular trichomes type IV in both surfaces. Santa Clara genotype presented higher density of trichomes, and B. tabaci biotype B presented higher preference to oviposition.A mosca-branca Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius, 1889 biótipo B é atualmente uma das principais pragas do tomateiro (Lycopersicon spp..

    2007-07-01

    The European Energy Law Report IV presents an overview of the most important legal developments in the field of EU and national energy law as discussed at the 2006 European Energy Law Seminar. It examines recent developments in EU and National Law affecting the energy sector. This includes the increasing use of EU competition law to liberalise the energy markets, the long-awaited implementation of the 2003 Electricity and Gas Directives in Germany and an assessment of Regulation 1775/2005 and its effect on the European gas market. Besides the energy market liberalisation, the Community is increasingly paying attention to the need for a sustainable and clean energy supply. The second part of the book therefore includes chapters on legal issues resulting from the experiences on emission trading in 2005-2007, the regulatory challenges resulting from the new Commission Energy Policy, the impact of the Amsterdam and Berlin Fora on EU Energy policy, and the EU policy framework on energy efficiency. An important tool for improving energy efficiency is the introduction of white certificates. The third part of the report presents the basic principles of white certificates as well as practical experiences and policies in some member states like Italy, France, The Netherlands and the UK. The final part of the report considers several issues related to the development and use of subsea electricity interconnectors and pays special attention to the development of the NorNed cable. It raises the need for a Treaty perspective on the developments of such subsea interconnectors. Then some regulatory views on the development of the NorNed cable and market coupling through the cable are presented. Finally, the economic and regulatory distinction between regulated and merchant interconnectors is discussed.

    As part of a study to characterize the detailed coordination behavior of Pu(IV), single crystal X-ray diffraction structures have been determined for Pu(IV) and Ce(IV) complexes with the naturally-occurring ligand maltol (3-hydroxy-2-methyl-pyran-4-one) and its derivative bromomaltol (5-bromo-3-hydroxy-2-methyl-pyran-4-one). Although Ce(IV) is generally accepted as a structural analog for Pu(IV), and the maltol complexes of these two metals are isostructural, the corresponding bromomaltol complexes are strikingly different with respect to ligand orientation about the metal ion: All complexes exhibit trigonal dodecahedral coordination geometry but the Ce(IV)-bromomaltol complex displays an uncommon ligand arrangement not mirrored in the Pu(IV) complex, although the two metal species are generally accepted to be structural analogs.

    Full Text Available Primary central nervous system atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors mostly occur during early childhood and are almost invariably fatal. These tumors show similar histological and radiological features to primitive neuroectodermal tumor, meduloblastoma and choroid plexus carcinoma, but present different biological behaviors. We present the case of an 18 year-old man who presented headache, vomiting and ataxia. CT-scan and MRI revealed a posterior fossa tumor. A gross total resection was performed. An intraoperative study showed papillary-like tumors with large cells and mitotic features. Histological examination showed two different main growth patterns: solid sheets of undifferentiated polygonal cells with papillary features and rhabdoid cells. Immunohistochemically, these rhabdoid cells were positive for vimentin, epithelial membrane antigen, smooth-muscle actin, cytokeratin, S-100 protein, and glial fibrillary acidic protein. Electro-microscopically, the typical rhabdoid cells contained whorled bundles of intermediate filaments in their cytoplasm. A rhabdoid tumor is a clinicalpathological entity and emphasizes the necessity to distinguish this unique tumor from other pediatric central nervous system neoplasms. Cytopathological features, immunohistochemistry and electro-microscopy differential diagnoses are discussed.Los tumores de tipo rabdoide primarios en cualquier sitio son raros y en el sistema nervioso central son extremadamente raros y ocurren principalmente en niños, el tumor teratoide/rabdoide es el tumor más frecuente dentro de este grupo y de evolución clínica fatal.

    Full Text Available Diabetes mellitus-2 [NIDDM/T2D] is a metabolic disorder that is characterized by Insulin resistance and hyperglycemia. DPP IV inhibitors have been investigated as new target for T2D treatment. DPP IV inhibition improves the impaired insulin secretion and decrease postprandial concentrations of glucagon by enhancing the incretin hormone levels of Glucagon like peptide-1(GLP-1 and Glucose dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP. Many research activities in this area resulted in the introduction of Sitagliptin and Vildagliptin (Only in Europe and few active molecules entered into clinical trials, for example Alogliptin. Treatment of this metabolic disorder especially in the early stages of the disease by DPP IV inhibition has been recognized as a validated and large numbers of inhibitors are currently in various stages of preclinical or clinical development. This review summarizes the development of DPP IV inhibitors, molecular mechanism, and etc.

Assim, o objetivo deste trabalho foi selecionar simultaneamente genótipos de feijão-caupi semiprostrado cultivados no Estado do Mato Grosso do Sul, via modelos mistos, que reúnam alta adaptabilidade, estabilidade e produtividade de grãos. Foram conduzidos quatro ensaios de valor de cultivo e uso com genótipos de genótipos de feijão-caupi nos anos de 2005 e 2006 em Aquidauana, Chapadão do Sul e Dourados. O delineamento experimental utilizado foi o de blocos completos casualizados, com 20 genótipos e 4 repetições. Os parâmetros genéticos foram estimados pela metodologia REML/BLUP, e a seleção baseou-se no método da média harmônica do desempenho relativo dos valores genéticos (MHPRVG, em três estratégias: seleção com base no valor genético predito, tendo-se considerado o desempenho médio dos genótipos em todos os ambientes (sem efeito de interação ou o desempenho em cada ambiente (com efeito da interação; e seleção simultânea quanto à produtividade de grãos, estabilidade e adaptabilidade. Os genótipos BRS Paraguaçu, MNC99-542F-5 e MNC99-508G-1 podem ser cultivados em vários ambientes, pois reúnem alta produtividade de grãos, adaptabilidade e estabilidade. A herdabilidade da média dos genótipos apresentou magnitude variando de moderada a alta, fato que indica excelentes possibilidades para a seleção, permitindo acurácia seletiva de 82%.

    Full Text Available Las teorías monetarias modernas, ortodoxas y heterodoxas, han pasado por alto el hecho de que posterior a la Segunda Guerra Mundial el mundo quedó dividido entre economías emisoras y receptoras de reservas, pasando el sistema monetario internacional desde entonces a ser completamente asimétrico. De allí que, desde el punto de vista teórico, señalemos la necesidad de tomar en cuenta si las economías emiten o no una moneda de reserva internacional, pues ello explicaría la existencia de diversas prácticas monetarias a nivel mundial. Este trabajo propone, y calcula, indicadores basados en datos provenientes de los balances de activos y pasivos de quince bancos centrales pertenecientes a Norteamérica, Suramérica, Europa y Asia. Los hallazgos con respecto a las diversas estructuras de activos y pasivos confirman la hipótesis acerca de la presencia de tales asimetrías. Se infiere en consecuencia que la política monetaria es menos flexible pero más influyente en las economías receptoras de reservas, y a la vez más flexible pero menos influyente en las economías emisoras. En pocas palabras, la exogeneidad de la tasa de interés de corto plazo es más débil en el caso de las economías receptoras de reservas las cuales se ven obligadas a acumular divisas y a procurar la estabilidad del tipo de cambio, debido a que sus monedas locales no son aceptadas en el exterior. Así, aunque la oferta crediticia es endógena en esas economías, las mismas no han sido capaces de librarse aún de la necesidad de mantener reservas monetarias en divisas extranjeras

In a naturalistic cross-sectional design, a group (n = 163) of young (18-25 years old) Swedish psychiatric outpatients was assessed according to DSM-IV. Psychosocial and environmental problems/axis IV were evaluated through structured interviewing by a social worker and by self-assessment on a questionnaire. Reliability between professional assessment and self-assessment of axis IV was examined. Concurrent validity of axis IV was also examined. Reliability between professional and self-assessed axis IV was fair to almost perfect, 0.31-0.83, according to prevalence and bias-adjusted kappa. Categories of psychosocial stress and environmental problems were related to the presence of axis I disorders, co-morbidity, personality disorders and decreasing Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) values. The revised axis IV according to DSM-IV seems to have concurrent validity, but is still hampered by limited reliability.

    Full Text Available FUNDAMENTO: Tem sido sugerido que o polimorfismo da haptoglobina pode influenciar na patogênese das complicações microvasculares e macrovasculares em pacientes diabéticos. OBJETIVO: O objetivo principal deste estudo transversal foi de realizar uma investigação da existência ou não de uma associação entre os genótipos de haptoglobina e a prevalência de eventos isquêmicos cardiovasculares (angina estável, angina instável e infarto agudo do miocárdio, hipertensão arterial sistêmica, hipertensão refratária, obesidade e dislipidemia em 120 pacientes com diabete melito tipo 2, seguidos no Hospital Universitário da Unicamp, em Campinas, Estado de São Paulo. MÉTODOS: A genotipagem da haptoglobina foi realizada por reações em cadeia da polimerase alelo-específicas. As frequências dos genótipos de haptoglobina foram comparadas com a presença/ausência de doença cardiovascular, hipertensão arterial sistêmica, hipertensão refratária, obesidade e dislipidemia; medições de pressão arterial sistólica e diastólica; glicemia, colesterol (total, lipoproteínas de alta densidade - HDL e lipoproteínas de baixa densidade - LDL e triglicerídeos; assim como níveis de creatinina sérica. RESULTADOS: Embora nenhuma associação entre o genótipo de haptoglobina e a presença de doença cardiovascular tenha sido identificada, encontramos um excesso significativo de pacientes com o genótipo Hp2-1 entre as pessoas com hipertensão refratária, que também apresentavam uma maior pressão arterial sistólica e diastólica e níveis de colesterol total e LDL. CONCLUSÃO: Nossos resultados sugerem que os pacientes com diabete melito tipo 2 com o genótipo Hp2-1 podem apresentar uma maior chance de desenvolver hipertensão refratária. Estudos adicionais em populações diabéticas são necessários para confirmar esses achados.

    Tetravalent thorium exhibits a strong tendency towards hydrolysis and subsequent polymerization. Polymeric species play a crucial role in understanding thorium solution chemistry, since their presence causes apparent solubility several orders of magnitude higher than predicted by thermodynamic data bases. Although electrospray mass spectrometry (ESI MS) identifies Th(IV) dimers and pentamers unequivocally as dominant species close to the solubility limit, the molecular structure of Th5(OH)y polymers was hitherto unknown. In the present study, X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) spectroscopy, high energy X-ray scattering (HEXS) measurements, and quantum chemical calculations are combined to solve the pentamer structure. The most favourable structure is represented by two Th(IV) dimers linked by a central Th(IV) cation through hydroxide bridges.

    Staff of the Telemetry Technology Development Department (2664) have, in support of the U.S. Interior Department Mineral Management Services (MMS), developed and deployed the Seafloor Earthquake Measurement System IV (SEMS IV). The result of this development project is a series of three fully operational seafloor seismic monitor systems located at offshore platforms: Eureka, Grace, and Irene. The instrument probes are embedded from three to seven feet into the seafloor and hardwired to seismic data recorders installed top side at the offshore platforms. The probes and underwater cables were designed to survive the seafloor environment with an operation life of five years. The units have been operational for two years and have produced recordings of several minor earthquakes in that time. Sandia Labs will transfer operation of SEMS IV to MMS contractors in the coming months. 29 figs., 25 tabs.

    Full Text Available La respuesta inmune innata está conformada por un conjunto de mecanismos que permiten reconocer los componentes propios del organismo y diferenciarlos de los microorganismos invasores para generar una primera línea de defensa. Este reconocimiento está mediado por diferentes receptores presentes en la superficie y en el interior de células inmunes y no inmunes; entre ellos se encuentran los siguientes: receptores tipo Toll (RTT, receptores de lectinas tipo C, receptores tipo GIR (genes inducibles por ácido retinoico y receptores tipo Nod y NALP, que reconocen patrones moleculares asociados a microorganismos (PMAM. Gracias a esta capacidad de discriminación, adquirida evolutivamente por la inmunidad innata, se ha aceptado tradicionalmente que los procesos autoinmunes no están relacionados con esta sino con la inmunidad adquirida. Sin embargo, varios estudios han demostrado que esa teoría no es totalmente cierta y que algunos mecanismos efectores de la inmunidad innata participan en la generación de las enfermedades autoinmunes o en la potenciación de su fisiopatología. En esta revisión se estudia la contribución de la inmunidad innata a la autoinmunidad con énfasis en el papel de los receptores tipo Toll.

    Full Text Available Type 2 diabetes arises as a result of β-cell failure combined with concomitant insulin resistance. Glucagon-like peptide-1 is a gastrointestinal hormone that is released postprandially from the L cells of the gut and exerts a glucose- dependent and direct insulinotropic effect on the pancreatic β cell. Which activate adenylate cyclase and enhances insulin secretion. GLP-1 is rapidly degraded by DPP-IV to GLP-1(9-37 amide following release from gut L cells. GLP-1 directly enhances glucose-dependent insulin secretion via an increase in β-cell cAMP. Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV is a plasma membrane glycoprotein ectopeptidase. In mammals, DPP-IV was widely expressed on the surface of endothelial and epithelial cells and highest levels in humans have been reported to occur in the intestine, bone marrow and kidney. Inhibiting DPP-IV reduces its rapid degradation of GLP-1, increasing circulating levels of the active hormone in vivo and prolonging its beneficial effects. The IC 50 value of parotid exudate was found to be 9.4 μg/ml. The maximum % inhibition (61.8 was showed at a concentration of 12μg/ml. Parotid exudate through inhibition of DPP-IV, improves glucose tolerance and enhances insulin secretion. DPP-IV inhibitors are a novel class of oral hypoglycemic agents with a potential to improve pancreatic beta cell function and the clinical course of type 2 diabetes.

    Full Text Available Cálculos recientes de la evolución de estrellas sencillas han tenido éxito en reproducir la composicion de estrellas Wolf-Rayet (WR deficientes en hidrogeno que son además estrellas centrales de nebulosas planetarias. Sin embargo, las observaciones infrarrojas mas recientes dejan claro que el esquema de estrellas sencillas no concuerda con las propiedades del polvo que rodea a muchas estrellas centrales tipo WR. Por otro lado, la binariedad podría explicar las observaciones en el infrarrojo asi como ofrecer una posibilidad de remover la envoltura rica en H de la estrella. En este trabajo proponemos dos esquemas con estrellas binarias originalmente propuestos por De Marco & Soker en relación a las estrellas centrales tipo WR. En el primero, un sistema binario cercano da como resultado el regreso de material eyectado a la estrella y eventualmente una estrella central deficiente en H. Este esquema se invoca para explicar la estrella central CPD-56º8032 en [WC10] y su disco de polvo. El segundo esquema propone que la mayoría de las estrellas centrales tipo WR son resultado de una fusión con una compañera de baja masa durante la fase AGB. Modelamos este esquema por medio de simulaciones hidrodinámicas en 3D, que simulan la fase de envolvente común entre una estrella AGB y una compañera de entre 0.1 and 0.2-M๏ durante el primer y décimo pulso térmico.

    Full Text Available In this article we estimate a two-factor model for the risk-free term structure yield in Chile. These factors are the short rate and the central tendency that are not directly estimable. Both factors follow an Ito stochastic process. In the solution of the model we follow the Balduzzi et al. (1996 specification, which provides an estimation procedure that do not depend on the parametric specification of the second factor and an "exponential affine" solution type that allows to estimate the model by mean of only one equation. The data used in this study is the average weekly yields of the bonds "Bonos de Reconocimiento" (BR of the Chilean stock exchange during May 1993 and December 1997. The results show that when we use a stochastic level for the long term rates the yields adjust better than the case when this level is constant. Also, the speed of the reversion process increases due to the better performance of the short term rate.

    New calculations of O IV electron density diagnostic emission-line ratios involving the 1399.8, 1401.2, 1404.8, and 14076.4 A transitions are presented. A comparison of these calculations with observational data from a quiet solar region, a sunspot, and an active region obtained with the High Resolution Telescope and Spectrograph (HRTS), two flares observed with the SO82B spectrograph on board Skylab, and Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations by the Goddard High Resolution Spectrograph (GHRS) of Capella, gives good results using the ratio R(sub 1) = I(1407.4 A)/I(1401.2 A). However, the electron density obtained using the ratio R(sub 2) = I(1407.4 A)/I(1404.8 A) is often an order of magnitude smaller. The O IV 1404.8 A line is blended with the S IV 1404.8 A line, and we investigate whether this ratio may still be used as a density diagnostic if the S IV 1406.1 A line intensity is used to correct for the presence of S IV 1404.8 A, using previous S IV calculations by Dufton et al. We still find systematic differences compared to density determinations from line ratios that do not involve the O IV 1404.8 A line, which we suggest are due to errors in earlier theoretical calculations of the S IV atomic data, and also possibly to previously unconsidered fluorescent pumping of the upper level of the S IV 1404.8 A transition.

    This paper investigates the TCP (Trans-mission Control Protocol) friendliness of multicast video-conferencing systems. Through the analysis and simulation experiments it is shown that the slow response to network state changes and the fixed rate adjustment process lead to TCP unfriendliness in the bandwidth sharing. Therefore,this paper proposes a new TCP friendly flow control al-gorithm called TFRC-IVS flow control algorithm for the current best-effort Internet. TFRC-IVS (TCP-Friendly Rate Control--INRIA Videoconferencing System) algo-rithm utilizes TCP friendly control function derived from complex TCP model to calculate TCP friendly sending rate.Simulation results show that TFRC-IVS flow control algorithm improves the smoothness of transmission rates and converges quickly to the stable sending rate. In addi-tion, the TCP friendly control function in TFRC-IVS flow control algorithm ensures the TCP friendliness of video flows and fair bandwidth allocation with TCP flows, which the traditional static rate adjustment algorithm lacks.

  14. Gen IV Materials Handbook Implementation Plan

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Rittenhouse, P.; Ren, W.

    2005-03-29

    A Gen IV Materials Handbook is being developed to provide an authoritative single source of highly qualified structural materials information and materials properties data for use in design and analyses of all Generation IV Reactor Systems. The Handbook will be responsive to the needs expressed by all of the principal government, national laboratory, and private company stakeholders of Gen IV Reactor Systems. The Gen IV Materials Handbook Implementation Plan provided here addresses the purpose, rationale, attributes, and benefits of the Handbook and will detail its content, format, quality assurance, applicability, and access. Structural materials, both metallic and ceramic, for all Gen IV reactor types currently supported by the Department of Energy (DOE) will be included in the Gen IV Materials Handbook. However, initial emphasis will be on materials for the Very High Temperature Reactor (VHTR). Descriptive information (e.g., chemical composition and applicable technical specifications and codes) will be provided for each material along with an extensive presentation of mechanical and physical property data including consideration of temperature, irradiation, environment, etc. effects on properties. Access to the Gen IV Materials Handbook will be internet-based with appropriate levels of control. Information and data in the Handbook will be configured to allow search by material classes, specific materials, specific information or property class, specific property, data parameters, and individual data points identified with materials parameters, test conditions, and data source. Details on all of these as well as proposed applicability and consideration of data quality classes are provided in the Implementation Plan. Website development for the Handbook is divided into six phases including (1) detailed product analysis and specification, (2) simulation and design, (3) implementation and testing, (4) product release, (5) project/product evaluation, and (6) product

    Full Text Available Abstract Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type IV, the vascular type of Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS, is an inherited connective tissue disorder defined by characteristic facial features (acrogeria in most patients, translucent skin with highly visible subcutaneous vessels on the trunk and lower back, easy bruising, and severe arterial, digestive and uterine complications, which are rarely, if at all, observed in the other forms of EDS. The estimated prevalence for all EDS varies between 1/10,000 and 1/25,000, EDS type IV representing approximately 5 to 10% of cases. The vascular complications may affect all anatomical areas, with a tendency toward arteries of large and medium diameter. Dissections of the vertebral arteries and the carotids in their extra- and intra-cranial segments (carotid-cavernous fistulae are typical. There is a high risk of recurrent colonic perforations. Pregnancy increases the likelihood of a uterine or vascular rupture. EDS type IV is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait that is caused by mutations in the COL3A1 gene coding for type III procollagen. Diagnosis is based on clinical signs, non-invasive imaging, and the identification of a mutation of the COL3A1 gene. In childhood, coagulation disorders and Silverman's syndrome are the main differential diagnoses; in adulthood, the differential diagnosis includes other Ehlers-Danlos syndromes, Marfan syndrome and Loeys-Dietz syndrome. Prenatal diagnosis can be considered in families where the mutation is known. Choriocentesis or amniocentesis, however, may entail risk for the pregnant woman. In the absence of specific treatment for EDS type IV, medical intervention should be focused on symptomatic treatment and prophylactic measures. Arterial, digestive or uterine complications require immediate hospitalisation, observation in an intensive care unit. Invasive imaging techniques are contraindicated. Conservative approach is usually recommended when caring for a vascular

    2006-06-01

    Full Text Available Estudios combinados de petrología, química mineral y geoquímcia de roca total revelan la presencia de dos unidades graníticas peraluminosas con minerales aluminosos magmáticos tales como granate y mica blanca y la presencia distintiva de turmalina. Las evidencias aquí presentadas indican que estas dos facies, Anillaco y Anjullón, junto a la unidad peraluminosa Santa Cruz estudiada en trabajos previos, constituyen una serie de rocas co-sanguíneas, emplazadas en niveles someros de la corteza y las cuales conforman una unidad ígnea mayor denominada aquí plutón La Costa, la cual aflora en el sector noreste de la sierra de Velasco. La asociación mineral, la química mineral y la geoquímica de roca total permiten definir al plutón La Costa como un clásico granitoide tipo-S, derivado de una roca fuente de composición esencialmente pelítica. Diferentes estudios demuestran que la generación de granitoides tipo-S requiere de un alto gradiente geotérmico, por lo cual el plutón La Costa indica que la corteza en esta región soportó un notable calentamiento durante la generación del magma. Sin embargo, la ausencia de datos geocronológicos impide definir el evento tectomagmático que produjo el magma primordial de este plutón.

El tipo antiguo, basado en el método de antinomias, es considerado muy débil por Hume. Él desarrolla un tipo nuevo de argumento escéptico a partir de su ciencia empírica de la naturaleza humana. Del otro lado, Hume distingue entre dos usos de los argumentos escépticos: el primero, que él llama pirrónico, tiene como finalidad la suspensión del juicio, lo que es imposible, porque la naturaleza nos obliga a creer; el segundo, el uso académico, pone límites a nuestro conocimiento, aceptando las creencias naturales, la ciencia empírica y las matemáticas.

  8. Giant piezoelectricity of monolayer group IV monochalcogenides

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fei, Ruixiang; Li, Wenbin; Li, Ju; Yang, Li

    We predict enormous, anisotropic piezoelectric effects in intrinsic monolayer group IV monochalcogenides (MX, M =Sn or Ge, X =Se or S), including SnSe, SnS, GeSe, and GeS. Using first-principle simulations based on the modern theory of polarization, we find that their piezoelectric coefficients are about one to two orders of magnitude larger than those of other 2D materials, such as MoS2 and GaSe, and bulk quartz and AlN which are widely used in industry. This enhancement is a result of the unique ``puckered'' C2v symmetry and electronic structure of monolayer group IV monochalcogenides. Given the achieved experimental advances in the fabrication of monolayers, their flexible character, and ability to withstand enormous strain, these 2D structures with giant piezoelectric effects may be promising for a broad range of applications such as nano-sized sensors, piezotronics, and energy harvesting in portable electronic devices.

    2005-01-01

    The type IV pilus retraction motor is found in many important bacterial pathogens. It is the strongest known linear motor protein and is required for bacterial infectivity. We characterize the dynamics of type IV pilus retraction in terms of a stochastic chemical reaction model. We find that a two state model can describe the experimental force velocity relation and qualitative dependence of ATP concentration. The results indicate that the dynamics is limited by an ATP-dependent step at low load and a force-dependent step at high load, and that at least one step is effectively irreversible in the measured range of forces. The irreversible nature of the sub-step(s) lead to interesting predictions for future experiments: We find different parameterizations with mathematically identical force velocity relations but different fluctuations (diffusion constant). We also find a longer elementary step compared to an earlier analysis, which agrees better with known facts about the structure of the pilus filament and e...

    Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) is a primary space-geodetic technique for determining precise coordinates on the Earth, for monitoring the variable Earth rotation and orientation with highest precision, and for deriving many other parameters of the Earth system. The International VLBI Service for Geodesy and Astrometry (IVS, http://ivscc.gsfc.nasa.gov/) is a service of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) and the International Astronomical Union (IAU). The datasets published here are the results of individual Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) sessions in the form of normal equations in SINEX 2.0 format (http://www.iers.org/IERS/EN/Organization/AnalysisCoordinator/SinexFormat/sinex.html, the SINEX 2.0 description is attached as pdf) provided by IVS as the input for the next release of the International Terrestrial Reference System (ITRF): ITRF2014. This is a new version of the ITRF2008 release (Bockmann et al., 2009). For each session/ file, the normal equation systems contain elements for the coordinate components of all stations having participated in the respective session as well as for the Earth orientation parameters (x-pole, y-pole, UT1 and its time derivatives plus offset to the IAU2006 precession-nutation components dX, dY (https://www.iau.org/static/resolutions/IAU2006_Resol1.pdf). The terrestrial part is free of datum. The data sets are the result of a weighted combination of the input of several IVS Analysis Centers. The IVS contribution for ITRF2014 is described in Bachmann et al (2015), Schuh and Behrend (2012) provide a general overview on the VLBI method, details on the internal data handling can be found at Behrend (2013).

    McFarlane, Harold

    2008-05-01

    Nuclear power technology has evolved through roughly three generations of system designs: a first generation of prototypes and first-of-a-kind units implemented during the period 1950 to 1970; a second generation of industrial power plants built from 1970 to the turn of the century, most of which are still in operation today; and a third generation of evolutionary advanced reactors which began being built by the turn of the 20^th century, usually called Generation III or III+, which incorporate technical lessons learned through more than 12,000 reactor-years of operation. The Generation IV International Forum (GIF) is a cooperative international endeavor to develop advanced nuclear energy systems in response to the social, environmental and economic requirements of the 21^st century. Six Generation IV systems under development by GIF promise to enhance the future contribution and benefits of nuclear energy. All Generation IV systems aim at performance improvement, new applications of nuclear energy, and/or more sustainable approaches to the management of nuclear materials. High-temperature systems offer the possibility of efficient process heat applications and eventually hydrogen production. Enhanced sustainability is achieved primarily through adoption of a closed fuel cycle with reprocessing and recycling of plutonium, uranium and minor actinides using fast reactors. This approach provides significant reduction in waste generation and uranium resource requirements.

    The intensity of the O iv 2s2 2p 2P-2s2p24P and S iv 3 s2 3p 2P-3s 3p24 P intercombination lines around 1400 Å observed with the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) provide a useful tool to diagnose the electron number density (Ne) in the solar transition region plasma. We measure the electron number density in a variety of solar features observed by IRIS, including an active region (AR) loop, plage and brightening, and the ribbon of the 22-June-2015 M 6.5 class flare. By using the emissivity ratios of O iv and S iv lines, we find that our observations are consistent with the emitting plasma being near isothermal (logT[K] ≈ 5) and iso-density (Ne ≈ 1010.6 cm-3) in the AR loop. Moreover, high electron number densities (Ne ≈ 1013 cm-3) are obtained during the impulsive phase of the flare by using the S iv line ratio. We note that the S iv lines provide a higher range of density sensitivity than the O iv lines. Finally, we investigate the effects of high densities (Ne ≳ 1011 cm-3) on the ionization balance. In particular, the fractional ion abundances are found to be shifted towards lower temperatures for high densities compared to the low density case. We also explored the effects of a non-Maxwellian electron distribution on our diagnostic method. The movie associated to Fig. 3 is available at http://www.aanda.org

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available Objetivos: revisar dados de literatura concernentes aos fatores que conferem suscetibilidade à patogenia auto-imune do diabetes mellitus tipo 1. Fonte de dados: revisão de artigos especializados no assunto publicados em bancos de dados nacionais e internacionais (SCIELO, LILACS e PUBMED. Síntese de dados: a etiopatogenia do diabetes mellitus tipo 1 está associada a fatores inflamatórios, genéticos e ambientais. Nesta revisão, abordamos o papel da auto-imunidade humoral e celular que culmina com a disfunção das células-beta produtoras de insulina. A precocidade da presença de alguns autoanticorpos como anti-ilhotas pancreáticas, antiinsulina e anti-ácido glutâmico descarboxilase é uma característica importante nesta patologia. Os diversos fatores genéticos associados ao deflagramento do diabetes mellitus tipo 1, sobretudo os associados ao sistema de antígenos leucocitários humanos, acabam por potencializar a apresentação de antígenos das ilhotas para o sistema imune. Por fim, fatores ambientais como exposição viral também contribuem para a quebra de tolerância imunológica observada nesses pacientes. Conclusões: o diabetes mellitus tipo 1 é uma entidade de etiopatogenia altamente complexa. Diversos fatores genéticos e ambientais potencializam os mecanismos de auto-imunidade humoral e celular que levam à insulite. O risco de hipoglicemia severa observada com o tratamento insulínico e as complicações crônicas do diabetes mellitus tipo 1 justificam pesquisas contínuas em relação à etiopatogenia desta entidade, o que contribuirá para abordagens terapêuticas mais eficazes.

    2014-06-06

    Medically unexplained symptoms are considered 'somatoform disorders' in the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV). The introduction of this nosographic category has been helpful in drawing attention to a previously neglected area, but has not been successful in promoting an understanding of the disorders' biological basis and treatment implications, probably because of a series of diagnostic shortcomings. The newly proposed DSM-V diagnostic criteria try to overcome the limitations of the DSM-IV definition, which was organised centrally around the concept of medically unexplained symptoms, by emphasising the extent to which a patient's thoughts, feelings and behaviours concerning their somatic symptoms are disproportionate or excessive. This change is supported by a growing body of evidence showing that psychological and behavioural features play a major role in causing patient disability and maintaining high level of health care use. Pain disorders is the sub-category of DSM-IV somatoform disorders that most closely resembles fibromyalgia. Regardless of the diagnostic changes recently brought about by DSM-V, neuroimaging studies have identified important components of the mental processes associated with a DSM- IV diagnosis of pain disorder.

    We present the most energetic BALQSO outflow measured to date, with a kinetic luminosity of at least 10{sup 46} erg s{sup -1}, which is 5% of the bolometric luminosity of this high Eddington ratio quasar. The associated mass-flow rate is 400 solar masses per year. Such kinetic luminosity and mass-flow rate should provide strong active galactic nucleus feedback effects. The outflow is located at about 300 pc from the quasar and has a velocity of roughly 8000 km s{sup -1}. Our distance and energetic measurements are based in large part on the identification and measurement of S IV and S IV* broad absorption lines (BALs). The use of this high-ionization species allows us to generalize the result to the majority of high-ionization BALQSOs that are identified by their C IV absorption. We also report the energetics of two other outflows seen in another object using the same technique. The distances of all three outflows from the central source (100-2000 pc) suggest that we observe BAL troughs much farther away from the central source than the assumed acceleration region of these outflows (0.01-0.1 pc).

    Using the tellurium(IV) complex compounds as an example, we study the interrelation between the geometric structure and spectral luminescence properties. We find that, in the series of compounds of Te(IV), which are characterized by the island octahedral coordination of Te(IV) ions, the luminescence intensity depends on the degree of distortion of the Te(IV) coordination polyhedron, the Stokes shift, and the energy of the luminescence transition. We revealed that the considered series of Te(IV) compounds possess reversible thermochromic properties.

    2009-01-01

    The threat of lightning is a daily concern during the warm season in Florida. Research has revealed distinct spatial and temporal distributions of lightning occurrence that are strongly influenced by large-scale atmospheric flow regimes. Previously, the Applied Meteorology Unit (AMU) calculated the gridded lightning climatologies based on seven flow regimes over Florida for 1-, 3- and 6-hr intervals in 5-, 10-, 20-, and 30-NM diameter range rings around the Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) and eight other airfields in the National Weather Service in Melbourne (NWS MLB) county warning area (CWA). In this update to the work, the AMU recalculated the lightning climatologies for using individual lightning strike data to improve the accuracy of the climatologies. The AMU included all data regardless of flow regime as one of the stratifications, added monthly stratifications, added three years of data to the period of record and used modified flow regimes based work from the AMU's Objective Lightning Probability Forecast Tool, Phase II. The AMU made changes so the 5- and 10-NM radius range rings are consistent with the aviation forecast requirements at NWS MLB, while the 20- and 30-NM radius range rings at the SLF assist the Spaceflight Meteorology Group in making forecasts for weather Flight Rule violations during Shuttle landings. The AMU also updated the graphical user interface with the new data.

  18. Topological characterisation and identification of critical domains within glucosyltransferase IV (GtrIV of Shigella flexneri

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The three bacteriophage genes gtrA, gtrB and gtr(type are responsible for O-antigen glucosylation in Shigella flexneri. Both gtrA and gtrB have been demonstrated to be highly conserved and interchangeable among serotypes while gtr(type was found to be specific to each serotype, leading to the hypothesis that the Gtr(type proteins are responsible for attaching glucosyl groups to the O-antigen in a site- and serotype- specific manner. Based on the confirmed topologies of GtrI, GtrII and GtrV, such interaction and attachment of the glucosyl groups to the O-antigen has been postulated to occur in the periplasm. Results In this study, the topology of GtrIV was experimentally determined by creating different fusions between GtrIV and a dual-reporter protein, PhoA/LacZ. This study shows that GtrIV consists of 8 transmembrane helices, 2 large periplasmic loops, 2 small cytoplasmic N- and C- terminal ends and a re-entrant loop that occurs between transmembrane helices III and IV. Though this topology differs from that of GtrI, GtrII, GtrV and GtrX, it is very similar to that of GtrIc. Furthermore, both the N-terminal periplasmic and the C-terminal periplasmic loops are important for GtrIV function as shown via a series of loop deletion experiments and the creation of chimeric proteins between GtrIV and its closest structural homologue, GtrIc. Conclusion The current study provides the basis for elucidating the structure and mechanism of action of this important O-antigen modifying glucosyltransferase.

    Full Text Available Congenital coronary artery anomalies are uncommon. Dual left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD is defined as the presence of two LADs within the anterior interventricular sulcus (AIVS, and is classified into four types. Type IV is a rarely reported subtype and differs from the others, with a long LAD originating from the right coronary artery (RCA. Dual LAD is a benign coronary artery anomaly, but should be recognised especially before interventional procedures. With the increasing use of multidedector computed tomography (MDCT, it is essential for radiologists to be aware of this entity and the cross-sectional findings.

    A thorough investigation of three-dimensional kagome lattices of group IV elements is performed with first-principles calculations. The investigated kagome lattices of silicon and germanium are found to be of similar stability as the recently proposed carbon kagome lattice. Carbon and silicon kagome lattices are both direct-gap semiconductors but they have qualitatively different electronic band structures. While direct optical transitions between the valence and conduction bands are allowed in the carbon case, no such transitions can be observed for silicon. The kagome lattice of germanium exhibits semimetallic behavior but can be transformed into a semiconductor after compression.

    2010-05-15

    Nuclear power has an important role in fulfilling the world's growing energy needs and reducing the carbon dioxide emission. Six new, innovative nuclear energy systems have been identified and selected for further development by the international Generation Four International Forum (GIF). These generation four (Gen IV) nuclear energy systems include a variety of reactor, energy conversion and fuel cycle technologies. The successful development and deployment of these largely depend on the performance and reliability of the available structural materials. These potential materials need to sustain their mechanical properties up to high temperatures, high neutron doses and corrosive environments of the new or enhanced types of coolants. Current knowledge on material properties, material-coolant interaction and especially material degradation processes in these new environments are limited. This paper gives an overview of the Gen IV material issues with special emphasis on European design of supercritical light water reactor concept high performance light water reactor (HPLWR). The challenges for the structural materials and the components most likely to suffer from creep and creep-irradiation are highlighted. Some results from relatively short term creep testing in supercritical water are presented for AISI 316NG, 347H and 1.4970 steels. The 1.4970 steel was superior in creep and oxidation resistance (orig.)

    Thermolysis of the iron(IV) nitride complex [PhB(tBuIm)3Fe≡N] with styrene leads to formation of the high-spin iron(II) aziridino complex [PhB(tBuIm)3Fe-N(CH2CHPh)]. Similar aziridination occurs with both electron-rich and electron-poor styrenes, while bulky styrenes hinder the reaction. The aziridino complex [PhB(tBuIm)3Fe-N(CH2CHPh)] acts as a nitride synthon, reacting with electron-poor styrenes to generate their corresponding aziridino complexes, that is, aziridine cross-metathesis. Reaction of [PhB(tBuIm)3Fe-N(CH2CHPh)] with Me3SiCl releases the N-functionalized aziridine Me3SiN(CH2CHPh) while simultaneously generating [PhB(tBuIm)3FeCl]. This closes a synthetic cycle for styrene azirdination by a nitride complex. While the less hindered iron(IV) nitride complex [PhB(MesIm)3Fe≡N] reacts with styrenes below room temperature, only bulky styrenes lead to tractable aziridino products. PMID:26179563

Os ensaios foram realizados após a etapa de enformagem e prensagem, para facilitar a reprodutibilidade estrutural dos queijos. Utilizou-se vácuo de 85,3kPa (Pabsoluta =16kPa, aplicado intermitentemente, intercalado com a recuperação da pressão atmosférica na câmara. Após períodos pré-estabelecidos, a câmara foi aberta e os queijos foram pesados e secionados, de modo a permitir a determinação da distribuição de sal no interior dos mesmos pelo método de Mohr. A salga por IV permitiu a obtenção de queijos com 1,6% em massa de sal em 15 minutos, contra 2,5 horas da salga convencional. Além disso, a distribuição de sal nos queijos salgados por IV foi mais homogênea do que nos queijos salgados por imersão em salmoura a pressão atmosférica.

    Full Text Available Esta revisión de los inhibidores de dipeptidil peptidasa-IV busca motivar el uso racional de tal grupo farmacológico en la práctica diaria. Este grupo es una nueva opción terapéutica en monoterapia o terapia combinada para el tratamiento de los pacientes con diabetes mellitus tipo 2. En Colombia, se encuentran disponibles: sitagliptina, vildagliptina, saxagliptina y linagliptina. Si bien todas las gliptinas tienen el mismo mecanismo de acción-aumentan la vida media del péptido similar al glucagón-, esta revisión presenta las diferencias entre sus propiedades farmacológicas, eventos adversos y perfil de seguridad. Estos medicamentos son de segunda o tercera línea para el tratamiento oral de los pacientes con diabetes mellitus tipo 2, o primera línea en los pacientes intolerantes a la metformina. Además, algunas de las ventajas que tienen son que: generan menor riesgo de hipoglucemia, tienen efecto neutro sobre el peso, son seguros en adultos mayores, disminuyen la variabilidad de la glucemia y, adicionalmente, se pueden utilizar en la enfermedad renal crónica avanzada, con o sin terapia de reemplazo renal, y en la insuficiencia hepática.

  12. Reduction of plutonium(IV) using photochemically generated uranium(IV)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The reduction of Pu(IV) using photochemically generated U(IV) has been evaluated as a procedure for possible inclusion in the Savannah River Plant's nuclear fuel reprocessing facility. The ''Purex 2nd Uranium Cycle'' with feed conditions of 400 g/L U, 1 M HNO3, and 10-8 to 10-6 M Pu was identified previously as the most promising stage for application of a photochemical method. Laboratory tests were conducted under similar conditions to determine if the plutonium could be successfully reduced and separated in a two-phase flowing system. The laboratory scale tests, which used primarily a 0.01 M butanol/0.01 M hydrazine reductant combination, demonstrated that reductive stripping of Pu(IV) using photochemically generated U(IV) is a practical method for removing plutonium from the organic phase. The kinetics of the reductive stripping procedure were found to be determined by the mixing rates of the organic and aqueous phases in this simple laboratory-scale system

    The first examples of actinide complexes incorporating corrole ligands are presented. Thorium(IV) and uranium(IV) macrocycles of Mes2(p-OMePh)corrole were synthesized via salt metathesis with the corresponding lithium corrole in remarkably high yields (93% and 83%, respectively). Characterization by single-crystal X-ray diffraction revealed both complexes to be dimeric, having two metal centers bridged via bis(μ-chlorido) linkages. In each case, the corrole ring showed a large distortion from planarity, with the Th(IV) and U(IV) ions residing unusually far (1.403 and 1.330 Å, respectively) from the N4 plane of the ligand. (1)H NMR spectroscopy of both the Th and U dimers revealed dynamic solution behavior. In the case of the diamagnetic thorium corrole, variable-temperature, DOSY (diffusion-ordered) and EXSY (exhange) (1)H NMR spectroscopy was employed and supported that this behavior was due to an intrinsic pseudorotational mode of the corrole ring about the M-M axis. Additionally, the electronic structure of the actinide corroles was assessed using UV-vis spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, and variable-temperature magnetic susceptibility. This novel class of macrocyclic complexes provides a rich platform in an underdeveloped area for the study of nonaqueous actinide bonding and reactivity.

    A highly sensitive and simple method, based on hydride generation and atomic fluorescence detection, has been developed for the determination of As, Bi, Sb, Se(IV) and Te(IV) in aqua regia extracts from atmospheric particulate matter samples. Atmospheric particulates matter was collected on glass fiber filters using a medium volume sampler (PM1 particulate matter). Two-level factorial designs have been used to optimise the hydride generation atomic fluorescence spectrometry (HG-AFS) procedure. The effects of several parameters affecting the hydride generation efficiency (hydrochloric acid, sodium tetrahydroborate and potassium iodide concentrations and flow rates) have been evaluated using a Plackett-Burman experimental design. In addition, parameters affecting the hydride measurement (delay, analysis and memory times) have been also investigated. The significant parameters obtained (sodium tetrahydroborate concentration, sodium tetrahydroborate flow rate and analysis time for As; hydrochloric acid concentration and sodium tetrahydroborate flow rate for Se(IV); and sodium tetrahydroborate concentration and sodium tetrahydroborate flow rate for Te(IV)) have been optimized by using 2{sup n} + star central composite design. Hydrochloric acid concentration and sodium tetrahydroborate flow rate were the significant parameters obtained for Sb and Bi determination, respectively. Using a univariate approach these parameters were optimized. The accuracy of methods have been verified by using several certified reference materials: SRM 1648 (urban particulate matter) and SRM 1649a (urban dust). Detection limits in the range of 6 x 10{sup -3} to 0.2 ng m{sup -3} have been achieved. The developed methods were applied to several atmospheric particulate matter samples corresponding to A Coruna city (NW Spain)

    While previous studies from Iraq have focused on β-thalassemia (β-thal) mutations in the northern part of the country, inhabited mainly by Kurds, no study of significance has looked at these mutations in central or southern Iraq, which is inhabited by the Arab majority. For the latter purpose this study was initiated and 103 β-thal carriers from Baghdad at the center of the country were investigated using multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and reverse hybridization followed by sequencing. The results revealed that a total of 17 mutations were implicated, six of which, IVS-I-110 (G>A), IVS-II-1 (G>A), IVS-I-5 (G>C), codons 8/9 (+G), IVS-I-I (G>A) and codon 44 (-C), constituted 78.0% of the mutations characterized. Among the 17 mutations identified, six are reported for the first time from Iraq and include: IVS-I, 25 bp deletion, IVS-II-848 (C>A), -28 (A>C), IVS-I-130 (G>C), IVS-I-128 (T>G) and codons 41/42 (-TTCT). The findings of the current study clearly illustrate the genetic heterogeneity of the population of central Iraq, as demonstrated by the presence of a combination of Mediterranean, Asian Indian, Kurdish, Iranian, Egyptian, Saudi Arabian and Turkish mutations that is reflective of the historical background of this part of the country.

    1996-08-01

    Vaughan Williams class IV antiarrhythmic drugs have Ca-channel blocking actions. Since L-type Ca-channels play key roles in regulating pulse conduction in atrioventricular node as well as in pathologically-depolarized myocardium, Ca-channel blockers known to modulate this type of Ca-channel (ICa,L) are used as antiarrhythmic agents. ICa,L channels have relatively high threshold potential (-40 mV) to activate and long-opening properties, and are enhanced by beta-adrenergic stimulation. Among three major ICa,L blockers, dihydropyridines such as nifedipine were found to bind to the channel from extracellular side. In contrast, verapamil and diltiazem interact with the channel from the cytoplasmic side, thereby causing rate-dependent block of ICa,L channels. This sideness of pharmacological action of the Ca-channel blockers determines an important therapeutic modality and their indication for tachyarrhythmias.

    Type IV pilus rectraction is required for twitching motility in a wide range of bacteriae, including Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Myxococcus xanthus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The mechanism of retraction is believed to be filament disassembly mediated by PilT, a member of the AAA family of motor proteins. Recent laser tweezer measurements of the force-velocity relation of PilT in N. gonorrhoeae, reveal that single PilT complexes generate forces of over 100 pN. We assume that PilT forms a cyclic ATPase surrounding the base of the pilus and formulate a model of retraction in terms of coupled flashing ratchets. We obtain a force-velocity relation by numerical simulation of the model which is in qualitative agreement with the experimental results.

  5. New mono-organotin (IV) dithiocarbamate complexes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Eighteen new mono-organotin dithiocarbamate compounds derived each nine from methyltin(IV) and phenyltin(IV) reacted using in-situ method with various type of N-dialkylamine together with carbon disulphide with the ratio of 1:3:3. Elemental and gravimetric analysis showed that the general formula of these compounds were RSnCl[S2CNR′R″]2 (R= Ph, CH3, R′ = CH3, C2H5, C7H7 and R″ = C2H5, C6H11, iC3H7, C7H7). These compounds had been characterized by infrared spectroscopy, ultraviolet spectroscopy, 1H, 13C NMR spectroscopy and single crystal X-ray crystallography. The infrared spectra of these compounds showed three important peaks indicating the formation of dithiocarbamate compounds, ν(CN), ν(CS) and ν(Sn-S) band which present in the region of 1444–1519, 954–1098 and 318–349 cm−1 respectively. The ultraviolet-visible spectra showed an absorption band for the π - π* transition of NCS group in the range of 253 – 259 nm due to the intramolecular charge transfer of the ligand. The 13C NMR spectra showed an important shift for δ(N13CS2) in the range of 196.8 – 201.9 ppm.. Single crystal X-ray diffraction studies showed three new structures with the general formula of PhSnCl[S2CN(Et)(i−Pr)]2, MeSnCl[S2CN(Me)(Cy)]2 and MeSnCl[S2CN(i−Pr)(CH2Ph)]2. All structures having a distorted octahedral geometry set by CClS4 donor atom from the two chelating dithiocarbamate ligands

  7. Collagen IV in normal skin and in pathological processes

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ana Maria Abreu-Velez

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Context: Type IV collagen is a type of collagen found primarily in the skin within the basement membrane zone. The type IV collagen C4 domain at the C-terminus is not removed in post-translational processing, and the fibers are thus link head-to-head, rather than in a parallel fashion. Also, type IV collagen lacks a glycine in every third amino-acid residue necessary for the tight collagen helix. Thus, the overall collagen-IV conformation is structurally more pliable and kinked, relative to other collagen subtypes. These structural features allow collagen IV to form sheets, which is the primary structural form found in the cutaneous basal lamina. There are six human genes associated with collagen IV, specifically COL4A1, COL4A2, COL4A3, COL4A4, COL4A5 and COL4A6. The aim of this review is to highlight the significance of this protein in normal skin, and in selected diseases. Results: The alpha 3 protein constituent of type IV collagen is thought to be the antigen implicated in Goodpasture′s syndrome, wherein the immune system attacks the basement membranes of the renal glomeruli and pulmonary alveoli. In addition, mutations to the genes coding for type IV collagen lead to the Alport syndrome. Furthermore, autoantibodies directed against denatured human type IV collagen have been described in rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, and SLE. Structural studies of collagen IV have been utilized to differentiate between subepidermal blistering diseases, including bullous pemphigoid, acquired epidermolysis bullosa, anti-epiligrin cicatricial pemphigoid, and bullous lupus erythematosus. Collagen IV is also of importance in wound healing and in embryogenesis. Conclusions: Pathological studies have demonstrated that minor structural differences in collagen IV can lead to distinct, clinically different diseases.

    Of ten different cell lines examined, three showed distinct attachment and spreading on collagen IV substrates, and neither attachment nor spreading was enhanced by adding soluble laminin or fibronectin. This reaction was not inhibited by cycloheximide or antibodies to laminin, indicating a direct attachment to collagen IV without the need of mediator proteins. Cell-binding sites were localized to the major triple-helical domain of collagen IV and required an intact triple helical conformatio...

  9. Prenatal IV Cocaine: Alterations in Auditory Information Processing

    2011-06-01

    Full Text Available One clue regarding the basis of cocaine-induced deficits in attentional processing is provided by the clinical findings of changes in the infants’ startle response; observations buttressed by neurophysiological evidence of alterations in brainstem transmission time. Using the IV route of administration and doses that mimic the peak arterial levels of cocaine use in humans, the present study examined the effects of prenatal cocaine on auditory information processing via tests of the acoustic startle response (ASR, habituation, and prepulse inhibition (PPI in the offspring. Nulliparous Long-Evans female rats, implanted with an IV access port prior to breeding, were administered saline, 0.5, 1.0, or 3.0 mg/kg/injection of cocaine HCL (COC from gestation day (GD8-20 (1x/day-GD8-14, 2x/day-GD15-20. COC had no significant effects on maternal/litter parameters or growth of the offspring. At 18-20 days of age, one male and one female, randomly selected from each litter displayed an increased ASR (>30% for males at 1.0 mg/kg and >30% for females at 3.0 mg/kg. When reassessed in adulthood (D90-100, a linear dose-response increase was noted on response amplitude. At both test ages, within-session habituation was retarded by prenatal cocaine treatment. Testing the females in diestrus vs. estrus did not alter the results. Prenatal cocaine altered the PPI response function across interstimulus interval (ISI and induced significant sex-dependent changes in response latency. Idazoxan, an alpha2-adrenergic receptor antagonist, significantly enhanced the ASR, but less enhancement was noted with increasing doses of prenatal cocaine. Thus, in utero exposure to cocaine, when delivered via a protocol designed to capture prominent features of recreational usage, causes persistent, if not permanent, alterations in auditory information processing, and suggests dysfunction of the central noradrenergic circuitry modulating, if not mediating, these responses.

    Full Text Available Type IV collagen-degrading enzyme activity was detected in human serum. Serum was preincubated with 4-aminophenylmercuric acetate and trypsin to activate the enzyme prior to assay. Type IV collagen, purified from human placentas and radiolabeled with [1-14C] acetic anhydride, was used as the substrate. The enzyme activity was measured at pH 7.5 and inhibited by treatment with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid or heat. The assay of type IV collagen-degrading enzyme in human serum might be useful for estimating the degradation of type IV collagen.

  16. Involvement of insulin-regulated aminopeptidase in the effects of the renin-angiotensin fragment angiotensin IV: a review.

    For decades, angiotensin (Ang) II was considered as the end product and the only bioactive peptide of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS). However, later studies revealed biological activity for other Ang fragments. Amongst those, Ang IV has drawn a lot of attention since it exerts a wide range of central and peripheral effects including the ability to enhance learning and memory recall, anticonvulsant and anti-epileptogenic properties, protection against cerebral ischemia, activity at the vascular level and an involvement in atherogenesis. Some of these effects are AT(1) receptor dependent but others most likely result from the binding of Ang IV to insulin-regulated aminopeptidase (IRAP) although the exact mechanism(s) of action that mediate the Ang IV-induced effects following this binding are until now not fully known. Nevertheless, three hypotheses have been put forward: since Ang IV is an inhibitor of the catalytic activity of IRAP, its in vivo effects might result from a build-up of IRAP's neuropeptide substrates. Second, IRAP is co-localized with the glucose transporter GLUT4 in several tissue types and therefore, Ang IV might interact with the uptake of glucose. A final and more intriguing hypothesis ascribes a receptor function to IRAP and hence an agonist role to Ang IV. Taken together, it is clear that further work is required to clarify the mechanism of action of Ang IV. On the other hand, a wide range of studies have made it clear that IRAP might become an important target for drug development against different pathologies such as Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy and ischemia.

    Renal fibrosis, a progressive process characterized by the accumulation of extracellular matrix (ECM) leading to organ dysfunction, is a characteristic of chronic kidney diseases. Among fibrogenic factors known to regulate the renal fibrotic process, transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) plays a central role. In the present study, we examined the effect of Astragaloside IV (AS-IV), a component of the traditional Chinese medicinal plant Astragalus membranaceus, on the processes associated with renal fibrosis in cultured mouse renal fibroblasts treated with TGF-β1. RT-PCR, western blotting, immunofluorescence staining and collagen assays showed that AS-IV suppressed TGF-β1 induced fibroblast proliferation, transdifferentiation, and ECM production in a dose-dependent manner. Examination of the underlying mechanisms showed that the effect of AS-IV on the inhibition of fibroblast differentiation and ECM formation were mediated by its modulation of the activity of the MAPK and NF-κB signaling pathways. Taken together, our results indicate that AS-IV alleviates renal interstitial fibrosis via a mechanism involving the MAPK and NF-κB signaling pathways and demonstrate the therapeutic potential of AS-IV for the treatment of chronic kidney diseases. - Highlights: • AS-IV suppressed TGF-β1 induced renal fibroblast proliferation. • AS-IV suppressed TGF-β1 induced renal fibroblast transdifferentiation. • AS-IV suppressed TGF-β1 induced ECM production. • AS-IV alleviates renal fibrosis via the MAPK and NF-κB signaling pathways.

  3. A classification system for O-B2 stars based on the Si IV and C IV resonance lines

    1981-01-01

    Low-dispersion ultraviolet spectra from Skylab Experiment S-019 are used to explore the variations of Si IV and C IV line strengths with temperature and luminosity. These considerations lead to a classification system in which the Si/C ratio is used to discriminate luminosity among the O stars and temperature among the O9-B2 stars of lower luminosity. Stars falling in these two regimes may be distinguished either by the presence of C IV emission or on the basis of C IV absorption strength. The log(Si IV/C IV) vs C IV diagram is proposed as a primary tool in such a classification system. The rapid variation in the Si IV/C IV ratio from less than 1/10 at O9 to greater than 10 at B1.5 for luminosity class III-V stars appears to be an especially useful criterion for the temperature classification of stars in this spectral range.

    This study evaluated the effect of cavity design on stress distribution and fracture resistance of direct composite resin restorations in Class IV preparations. A finite element analysis (FEA) model of the maxillary central incisor with a Class IV cavity was established. Five model variations were studied: (i) a 1-mm bevel (ii) a 2-mm bevel, (iii) a plain chamfer, (iv) a stair-step chamfer, and (v) butt joints (a control configuration). All FEA variations modeled a tooth restored with composite resin loaded under 100 N at an angle of 45° to the longitudinal axis. The interfacial von Mises stress was evaluated. The FEA was complemented with an in vitro assessment. Fracture resistance of direct composite resin restorations was tested with a universal testing machine and fracture patterns were observed. Finite element analysis showed that stress in chamfer and stair-step chamfer models was more homogenously distributed, while stress in bevel models was relatively concentrated at lingual regions. Fracture resistance of a 1-mm bevel preparation was lower than for the 2-mm bevel, plain chamfer, and stair-step chamfer preparations, but was higher than for butt joints. The stair-step chamfer group presented the most favorable failure pattern. Considering biomechanics and esthetics, the present study indicates that the stair-step chamfer and 2-mm bevel should be recommended for clinical restoration. PMID:22409223

    Full Text Available Este artículo presenta una aplicación eficiente de un control por modelo de referencia sobre un robot de tipo SCARA. El control estudiado es un control predictivo funcional, el que hace uso de un modelo dinámico simplificado del robot. Los ensayos simulados se realizan sobre un robot de cuatro grados de libertad, tipo SCARA. Con el fin de comparar diferentes estrategias de control, se diseña un controlador clásico tipo PID y dos controladores basados en el modelo de referencia. En este último caso el sistema se linealiza y se desacoplada por realimentación, lo que transforma el sistema a controlar en un simple par de integradores. Al sistema lineal y desacoplado resultante se le aplica el control por par calculado y el control predictivo funcional. Los tres controladores estudiados se simulan sobre el robot SCARA con valores numéricos reales. Las pruebas permiten valorar las respuestas de estos controladores en seguimiento de trayectoria, rechazo de perturbaciones y presencia de errores en el modelado con consignas complejas similares a las utilizadas en procesos de fabricación.This paper describes an efficient approach for model based control, applied on a SCARA robot. The studied control is the predictive functional control which uses a simplified dynamical model of the robot. The simulated tests are made on a SCARA type robot, with four DOF. To compare several control strategies, a classical PID control and two model based controllers are designed. In the last case, the model is first linearized and decoupled by feedback, transforming the system into a double set of integrators. Computed torque control and predictive functional control are applied to the linear and decoupled system. The three studied controllers are simulated on the SCARA robot with real numerical values. Tracking performance, disturbance rejection and model robot mismatch are enlightened, using complex machining tasks trajectories and error presence in the modelling

    Full Text Available En la actualidad las modalidades lúdicas de los niños se han ido modificando. En las últimas dé- cadas, en la Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires se han producido cambios en los espacios lúdicos, que llevan a los niños a realizar cada vez más ac- tividades en espacios privados o semipúblicos, ha- ciendo variar su manera de jugar. El objetivo del estudio que se informa fue des cribir y analizar l as transformaciones lúdicas, a partir de los juegos de los niños, los espacios y la percepción, y el re- cuerdo de personas pertenecientes a distintas ge- neraciones. Participaron 516 sujetos de estrato so- cial medio, agrupados en cuatro franjas de edad: niños, adolescentes, jóvenes y adultos y se les ad- ministró el Cuestionario Semiestructurado sobre Jue gos (Stefani, Andrés & Oanes, 2010. Los da- tos obtenidos fueron clasificados de acuerdo a los diferentes tipos de juegos y espacios lúdicos, a fi n de describir semejanzas y diferencias entre las respuestas dadas por los diferentes grupos de la mues- tra. Además se calcularon frecuencias y porcenta- jes de los juegos y de los espacios predominantes por edad. A fin de evaluar la asociación entre las variables tipo de juegos y tipo de espacios con las distintas franjas de edad, se aplicó la prue ba de in- dependencia de atributos chi-cuadrado. Los resul- tados permiten observar que los juegos se fueron transformando junto con los espacios donde se desarrollan, llevando a los niños a realizar sus prácticas cada vez más puertas adentro.

    Full Text Available Objetivo: Estimar el coste de la atención sanitaria al paciente diabético tipo 2, diferenciando el gasto derivado del control de la enfermedad, de la atención de sus complicaciones y de otros costes directos asociados. Métodos: Recogida retrospectiva del consumo de recursos a partir de la historia clínica y la entrevista personal en 29 centros de atención primaria de todo el territorio nacional de una muestra de pacientes seleccionados de forma aleatoria a partir del registro de diabéticos de cada centro. Resultados: Se evaluó a 1.004 pacientes (561 mujeres con una media de edad de 67,42 años y una media de evolución de la enfermedad de 10,07 años. El 50,9% no presentaba complicaciones, el 17,7% sólo macrovasculares, el 19,5% sólo microvasculares y el 11,9% ambas. El coste anual sanitario por paciente fue de 1.305,15 euros. De este coste el 28,6% (373,27 euros estaba relacionado directamente con el control de la diabetes, el 30,51% (398,20 euros con sus complicaciones y el 40,89% (533,68 euros no estaba relacionado. El coste medio de un paciente sin complicaciones fue de 883 euros frente a 1.403 de un paciente con complicaciones microvasculares, 2.022 cuando existían complicaciones macrovasculares y 2.133 cuando coexistían ambos tipos de complicaciones. Conclusiones: El elevado coste del tratamiento de la diabetes tipo 2 y sus complicaciones, sugiere la posibilidad de que la mejora del control de la enfermedad pueda no sólo mejorar la supervivencia y la calidad de vida, sino reducir los costes asociados con las complicaciones crónicas.

    The maize (Zea mays) RNA Polymerase IV (Pol IV) largest subunit, RNA Polymerase D1 (RPD1 or NRPD1), is required for facilitating paramutations, restricting expression patterns of genes required for normal development, and generating small interfering RNA (siRNAs). Despite this expanded role for maize Pol IV relative to Arabidopsis thaliana, neither the general characteristics of Pol IV-regulated haplotypes, nor their prevalence, are known. Here, we show that specific haplotypes of the purple plant1 locus, encoding an anthocyanin pigment regulator, acquire and retain an expanded expression domain following transmission from siRNA biogenesis mutants. This conditioned expression pattern is progressively enhanced over generations in Pol IV mutants and then remains heritable after restoration of Pol IV function. This unusual genetic behavior is associated with promoter-proximal transposon fragments but is independent of sequences required for paramutation. These results indicate that trans-generational Pol IV action defines the expression patterns of haplotypes using co-opted transposon-derived sequences as regulatory elements. Our results provide a molecular framework for the concept that induced changes to the heterochromatic component of the genome are coincident with heritable changes in gene regulation. Alterations of this Pol IV-based regulatory system can generate potentially desirable and adaptive traits for selection to act upon. PMID:23512852

  11. KENO-IV code benchmark calculation, (4)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A series of benchmark tests has been undertaken in JAERI in order to examine the capability of JAERI's criticality safety evaluation system consisting of the Monte Carlo calculation code KENO-IV and the newly developed multi-group constants library MGCL. The present paper describes the results of a test using criticality experiments about slab-cylinder system of uranium nitrate solution. In all, 128 cases of experiments have been calculated for the slab-cylinder configuration with and without plexiglass reflector, having the various critical parameters such as the number of cylinders and height of the uranium nitrate solution. It is shown among several important results that the code and library gives a fairly good multiplication factor, that is, k sub(eff) -- 1.0 for heavily reflected cases, whereas k sub(eff) -- 0.91 for the unreflected ones. This suggests the necessity of more advanced treatment of the criticality calculation for the system where neutrons can easily leak out during slowing down process. (author)

  12. Testing and economical evaluation of U(IV) in Purex

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The use of uranous nitrate, U(IV), as a plutonium reductant in the Purex solvent extraction process could significantly reduce the waste generation at the Savannah River Plant. The current reductant is a ferrous sulfamate (FS)/hydroxylamine nitrate (HAN) mixture. The iron and sulfate in the FS are major contributors to waste generation. The U(IV) reductant oxidizes to U(VI) producing no waste. The Savannah River Laboratory has developed an efficient electrochemical cell for U(IV) production and has demonstrated the effectiveness of U(IV) as a plutonium reductant. Plant tests and economic analyses are currently being conducted to determine the cost effectiveness of U(IV) implementation. The results of recent studies are presented

  13. Irradiation Alters MMP-2/TIMP-2 System and Collagen Type IV Degradation in Brain

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Purpose: Blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption is one of the major consequences of radiation-induced normal tissue injury in the central nervous system. We examined the effects of whole-brain irradiation on matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs)/tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) and extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation in the brain. Methods and Materials: Animals received either whole-brain irradiation (a single dose of 10 Gy γ-rays or a fractionated dose of 40 Gy γ-rays, total) or sham-irradiation and were maintained for 4, 8, and 24 h following irradiation. mRNA expression levels of MMPs and TIMPs in the brain were analyzed by real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The functional activity of MMPs was measured by in situ zymography, and degradation of ECM was visualized by collagen type IV immunofluorescent staining. Results: A significant increase in mRNA expression levels of MMP-2, MMP-9, and TIMP-1 was observed in irradiated brains compared to that in sham-irradiated controls. In situ zymography revealed a strong gelatinolytic activity in the brain 24 h postirradiation, and the enhanced gelatinolytic activity mediated by irradiation was significantly attenuated in the presence of anti-MMP-2 antibody. A significant reduction in collagen type IV immunoreactivity was also detected in the brain at 24 h after irradiation. In contrast, the levels of collagen type IV were not significantly changed at 4 and 8 h after irradiation compared with the sham-irradiated controls. Conclusions: The present study demonstrates for the first time that radiation induces an imbalance between MMP-2 and TIMP-2 levels and suggests that degradation of collagen type IV, a major ECM component of BBB basement membrane, may have a role in the pathogenesis of brain injury.

    Hydrothermal reactions of CeCl(3) and PuCl(3) with MoO(3) and Cs(2)CO(3) yield surprisingly different results. Ce(3)Mo(6)O(24)(H(2)O)(4) crystallizes as bright yellow plates (space group C2/c, a = 12.7337(7) Å, b = 22.1309(16) Å, c = 7.8392(4) Å, β = 96.591(4)°, V = 2194.6(2) Å(3)), whereas CsPu(3)Mo(6)O(24)(H(2)O) crystallizes as semiconducting black-red plates (space group C2/c, a = 12.633(5) Å, b = 21.770(8) Å, c = 7.743(7) Å, β = 96.218(2)°, V = 2117(2) Å(3)). The topologies of the two compounds are similar, with channel structures built from disordered Mo(VI) square pyramids and (RE)O(8) square antiprisms (RE = Ce(IV), Pu(IV)). However, the Pu(IV) compound contains Cs(+) in its channels, while the channels in Ce(3)Mo(6)O(24)(H(2)O)(4) contain water molecules. Disorder and an ambiguous oxidation state of Mo lead to the formula CsPu(3)Mo(6)O(24)(H(2)O), where one Mo site is Mo(V) and the rest are Mo(VI). X-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES) experiments were performed to investigate the source of the black color of CsPu(3)Mo(6)O(24)(H(2)O). These experiments revealed Pu to be tetravalent, while the strong pre-edge absorption from the distorted molybdate anions leaves the oxidation state ambiguous between Mo(V) and Mo(VI). PMID:23360299

  20. Experimental facilities for Generation IV reactors research

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Centrum Vyzkumu Rez (CVR) is research and development Company situated in Czech Republic and member of the UJV group. One of its major fields is material research for Generation IV reactor concepts, especially supercritical water-cooled reactor (SCWR), very high temperature/gas-cooled fast reactor (VHTR/GFR) and lead-cooled fast reactor (LFR). The CVR is equipped by and is building unique experimental facilities which simulate the environment in the active zones of these reactor concepts and enable to pre-qualify and to select proper constructional materials for the most stressed components of the facility (cladding, vessel, piping). New infrastructure is founded within the Sustainable Energy project focused on implementation the Generation IV and fusion experimental facilities. The research of SCWR concept is divided to research and development of the constructional materials ensured by SuperCritical Water Loop (SCWL) and fuel components research on Fuel Qualification Test loop (SCWL-FQT). SCWL provides environment of the primary circuits of European SCWR, pressure 25 MPa, temperature 600 deg. C and its major purpose is to simulate behavior of the primary medium and candidate constructional materials. On-line monitoring system is included to collect the operational data relevant to experiment and its evaluation (pH, conductivity, chemical species concentration). SCWL-FQT is facility focused on the behavior of cladding material and fuel at the conditions of so-called preheater, the first pass of the medium through the fuel (in case of European SCWR concept). The conditions are 450 deg. C and 25 MPa. SCWL-FQT is unique facility enabling research of the shortened fuel rods. VHTR/GFR research covers material testing and also cleaning methods of the medium in primary circuit. The High Temperature Helium Loop (HTHL) enables exposure of materials and simulates the VHTR/GFR core environment to analyze the behavior of medium, especially in presence of organic compounds and

Se observa que ambos discursos distribuyen selectivamente sus actos, de tal modo que el discurso 'wewpin' utiliza mayoritariamente directivos, mientras que los representativos constituyen la mayoría en los 'ngütram'. Ello debido a las funciones pragmáticas que cada tipo de discurso cumple en la conformación y mantención de la ideología cultural del pueblo mapuche. (In this paper, the author compares two forms of Mapuche discourse, represented by religious texts –'wewpin'– and narrative texts –'ngütram'–. The most recurrent speech acts, according to Searle, are analyzed. The results show that each type of discourse favors a specific type af speech act: wewpin discourse prefers directive acts while ngütram favors representative ones. This is due to the pragmatic function that each type of discourse has in the conformation and preservation of the Mapuche cultural identity.

    Full Text Available Beterrabas minimamente processadas apresentam vida de prateira curta, mesmo sob refrigeração, devido à descoloração superficial que deprecia a qualidade do produto. O objetivo do trabalho foi verificar o efeito de três tipos de corte em beterraba minimamente avaliando sua qualidade durante a conservação refrigerada. Os cortes utilizados foram: fatia, cubo e retalho. Após o processamento as beterrabas foram armazenadas a 5degreesC e as avaliações sendo realizadas durante dez dias a cada dois dias. Beterrabas em fatias apresentaram maior respiração e maiores perdas dos pigmentos betalaínas e de sólidos solúveis durante o armazenamento. Através de análise sensorial, verificou-se que a qualidade visual do produto foi mantida por até quatro dias, independente do tipo de corte. O fator que mais depreciou a qualidade de beterraba minimamente processada foi a perda de coloração das raízes (esbranquiçamento. Pode-se concluir que a beterraba minimamente processada em fatias ou cubo apresenta conservação de, no máximo 4 dias, a 5degreesC, enquanto minimamente processada em retalho apresenta 6 dias de conservação.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Estabelecer os fenótipos clínicos em portadores de asma grave. MÉTODOS: Foram estudados, retrospectivamente, 111 pacientes em um ambulatório especializado. Os pacientes foram avaliados e acompanhados de maneira sistemática, estabelecendo-se ao final do acompanhamento a adesão e o controle ou não da doença por dados clínicos e funcionais. A resistência ao tratamento foi definida como o não preenchimento, ao final do acompanhamento, por pelo menos seis meses, dos critérios de controle de asma, apesar do uso correto e adesão à medicação. Os fenótipos foram determinados por análise fatorial e comparados por testes diversos. RESULTADOS: Ao final, 88 pacientes foram considerados aderentes e 23 não aderentes. Por análise fatorial do grupo aderente, quatro fenótipos foram determinados: o fenótipo 1 (28 pacientes, formado pelos pacientes resistentes ao tratamento, com maior freqüência de sintomas noturnos, maior número de exacerbações e uso mais freqüente de broncodilatador de resgate; o fenótipo 2 (48 pacientes, formado pelos pacientes com obstrução persistente, com menores valores de relação volume expiratório forçado no primeiro segundo/capacidade vital forçada na avaliação inicial, idade mais avançada e maior tempo de doença; o fenótipo 3 (42 pacientes, representa os pacientes com rinossinusite alérgica, sendo constituído de não fumantes com obstrução predominantemente reversível; e o fenótipo 4 (15 pacientes, formado por casos com história de intolerância à aspirina associado à asma quase fatal.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo tem como objetivo uma revisita a referenciais bibliográficos a partir dos quais foi possível refletir sobre a construção de estereótipos relacionados à imagem feminina no século XX partindo-se do conceito de representação proposto por Moscovici (2003. Pretende-se na convergência destas duas categorias (representação e imagem apresentar olhares sobre a construção de alguns estereótipos relacionados às mulheres, uma vez que diversas instituições inclusive o próprio movimento feminista em suas variadas vertentes também preocuparam-se em “criar” representações das mulheres. Algumas discussões presentes neste artigo fizeram parte do conteúdo da disciplina “Seminários avançados sobre produtos, processos e discursos midiáticos” ofertada pelo Núcleo de Pós-Graduação da Universidade Federal de Sergipe. Desta forma pode-se refletir sobre os variados recortes imagéticos dos quais as instituições e as próprias mulheres utilizaram-se para compor novas representações.

  12. Intermetallic communication in titanium(IV) ferrocenyldiketonates.

    A tetradentate bis(ferrocenyldiketonate) ligand, Fc(2)BobH(2), is prepared via Claisen condensation of acetylferrocene and 2,2'-biphenyldiacetyl chloride, and is metalated with titanium(IV) isopropoxide to give (Fc(2)Bob)Ti(O(i)Pr)(2) in good yield. The isopropoxide groups are replaced with di(4-nitrophenyl)phosphate groups on treatment with the corresponding acid, and with chlorides on treatment with trimethylsilyl chloride. Metathesis with catechol leads to the bis(o-hydroxyphenoxide) complex rather than the chelating catecholate complex. Hydrolysis selectively gives the mu-oxo trimer (Delta,Delta,Delta)/(Lambda,Lambda,Lambda)-{(Fc(2)Bob)Ti(mu-O)}(3). The solid-state structures of the mu-oxo trimer and the bis(o-hydroxyphenoxide) complex show that the ferrocene substituents are oriented proximal to the biphenyl backbone rather than pointed out toward the exogenous groups. The complexes show dramatic changes in color depending on the bound anions, ranging from the red isopropoxide (lambda(max) = 489 nm) to the green bis(di(4-nitrophenyl)phosphate) (lambda(max) = 653 nm). The oxidation potentials of the ferrocenes show modest shifts based on the titanium environment, but the redox potentials of the two ferrocenes are never separated by more than 60 mV. These results and those of density-functional theory (DFT) calculations indicate that the titanium interacts principally with the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) of the ferrocenyldiketonate and very little with its highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO).

    Systems formed using the V(IV)O(2+) ion with tridentate ligands containing a (O, N(arom), O) donor set were described. Examined ligands were 3,5-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1-phenyl-1H-1,2,4-triazole (H2hyph(Ph)), 4-[3,5-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl]benzoic acid (H3hyph(C)), 4-[3,5-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl]benzenesulfonic acid (H3hyph(S)), and 2,6-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)pyridine (H2bhpp), with H3hyph(C) being an orally active iron chelator that is commercially available under the name Exjade (Novartis) for treatment of chronic iron overload arising from blood transfusions. The systems were studied using EPR, UV-Vis, and IR spectroscopies, pH potentiometry, and DFT methods. The ligands bind vanadium with the two terminal deprotonated phenol groups and the central aromatic nitrogen to give six-membered chelate rings. In aqueous solution the main species were the mono- and bis-chelated V(IV)O complexes, whereas in the solid state neutral non-oxido V(IV) compounds were formed. [V(hyph(Ph))2] and [V(bhpp)2] are hexacoordinated, with a geometry close to the octahedral and a meridional arrangement of the ligands. DFT calculations allow distinguishing V(IV)O and V(IV) species and predicting their structure, the (51)V hyperfine coupling constant tensor A, and the electronic absorption spectra. Finally, EPR spectra of several non-oxido V(IV) species were compared using relevant geometrical parameters to demonstrate that in the case of tridentate ligands the (51)V hyperfine coupling constant is related to the geometric isomerism (meridional or facial) rather than the twist angle Φ, which measures the distortion of the hexacoordinated structure toward a trigonal prism.

  14. Structure activity relationship modelling of milk protein-derived peptides with dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) inhibitory activity.

    2016-05-01

    Quantitative structure activity type models were developed in an attempt to predict the key features of peptide sequences having dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) inhibitory activity. The models were then employed to help predict the potential of peptides, which are currently reported in the literature to be present in the intestinal tract of humans following milk/dairy product ingestion, to act as inhibitors of DPP-IV. Two models (z- and v-scale) for short (2-5 amino acid residues) bovine milk peptides, behaving as competitive inhibitors of DPP-IV, were developed. The z- and the v-scale models (p<0.05, R(2) of 0.829 and 0.815, respectively) were then applied to 56 milk protein-derived peptides previously reported in the literature to be found in the intestinal tract of humans which possessed a structural feature of DPP-IV inhibitory peptides (P at the N2 position). Ten of these peptides were synthetized and tested for their in vitro DPP-IV inhibitory properties. There was no agreement between the predicted and experimentally determined DPP-IV half maximal inhibitory concentrations (IC50) for the competitive peptide inhibitors. However, the ranking for DPP-IV inhibitory potency of the competitive peptide inhibitors was conserved. Furthermore, potent in vitro DPP-IV inhibitory activity was observed with two peptides, LPVPQ (IC50=43.8±8.8μM) and IPM (IC50=69.5±8.7μM). Peptides present within the gastrointestinal tract of human may have promise for the development of natural DPP-IV inhibitors for the management of serum glucose.

    In this paper, the study of obtaining new coordination compounds of Ti(IV) and Zr(IV) using as ligand: D,L-β-iso-butyric acid, is presented. Also, the stability of these compounds in aqueous medium is studied. The studies of obtaining and of stability of the new compounds were accomplished in aqueous solutions using methods characteristic for coordination compounds: conductance and pH measurements. The combination ratios and the stability were determined with methods characteristic for studies in solutions. From experimental data resulted that the combination ratio of central metallic atoms with the ligand derived from D,L-β-iso-butyric acid was 1:2. From experimental data resulted that in strong acid and strong basic mediums, the coordination compounds could not be obtained. The optimal stability of the studied compounds is limited between 3-6, pH - values. This fact is in accordance with the conditions of using these compounds in ecological leather tanning. Of great importance is that these compounds were used with very good results in tanning processes of different types of leather. This fact evidenced that the ecological alternative of tanning is better than non-ecological tanning using chrome compounds. The importance of this paper consists in obtaining new coordination compounds that can be used in ecological leather tanning.

    We have found the central star of Abell 70 (PN G038.1-25.4, hereafter A 70) to be a binary consisting of a G8 IV-V secondary and a hot white dwarf. The secondary shows enhanced Ba II and Sr II features, firmly classifying it as a barium star. The nebula is found to have Type-I chemical abundances with helium and nitrogen enrichment, which combined with future abundance studies of the central star, will establish A 70 as a unique laboratory for studying s-process AGB nucleosynthesis.

    Full Text Available Hereditary sensory autonomic neuropathy type IV (HSAN -IV, also known as congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis, is a very rare condition that presents in infancy with anhidrosis, absence of pain sensation and self -mutilation. Developmental delay and mental retardation are usually present. Ultrastructural study of the peripheral nerves demonstrates loss of the unmyelinated and small myelinated fibers. We here report a 8 year -old boy with HSAN IV with typical clinical features where the diagnosis was supported by nerve biopsy findings. However, our case was unusual since mental development was normal.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The foam separation of zirconium(IV) from chloride solutions has been investigated over the 1.8-12 pH range using sodium lauryl sulphate or cetyl(trimethyl)ammonium bromide as collectors. The effects of gas flow rate, bubbling time, collector and zirconium(IV) concentrations, aging of the metal ion, and ionic strength have been studied and the results are discussed in relation to the hydrolytic behaviour of zirconium(IV). Under optimum conditions, ca. 99.5%-removal can be achieved. (orig.)

  3. New tools for generation IV assemblies modelling

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text of publication follows: In the framework of the development of generation IV concepts, the need of new assembly modelling tools arises. These concepts present more geometrical and spectral heterogeneities (radially and axially). Moreover thermal-hydraulics and neutronics aspects are so closely related that coupled computations are necessary. That raises the need for more precise and flexible tools presenting 3D features. The 3D-coupling of the thermal-hydraulic code FLICA4 with the Monte-Carlo neutronics code TRIPOLI4 was developed in that frame. This new tool enables for the first time to obtain realistic axial and radial power profiles with real feedback effects in an assembly where thermal-hydraulics and neutronics effects are closely related. The BWR is the existing concept presenting the closest heterogeneous characteristics to the various new proposed concepts. This assembly design is thus chosen to compare this new tool, presenting real 3D characteristics, to the existing ones. For design studies, the evaluation of the assembly behavior, currently necessitate a depletion scheme using a 3D thermal-hydraulics assembly calculation coupled with a 1D axial neutronics deterministic calculation (or an axial power profile chosen as a function of the assembly averaged burn-up). The 3D neutronics code (CRONOS2) uses neutronic data built by 2D deterministic assembly calculations without feedback. These cross section libraries enable to take feedbacks into account via parameters such as fuel temperature, moderator density and temperature (history parameters such as void and control rod are not useful in design evaluation). Recently, the libraries build-up has been replaced by on line multi-2D deterministic assembly calculations performed by a cell code (APOLLO2). That avoids interpolation between pre-determined parameters in the cross-section data used by the 1D axial neutronics calculation and enable to give a radial power map to the 3D thermal

  4. Relating binary-star planetary systems to central configurations

    Veras, Dimitri

    2016-01-01

    Binary-star exoplanetary systems are now known to be common, for both wide and close binaries. However, their orbital evolution is generally unsolvable. Special cases of the N-body problem which are in fact completely solvable include dynamical architectures known as central configurations. Here, I utilize recent advances in our knowledge of central configurations to assess the plausibility of linking them to coplanar exoplanetary binary systems. By simply restricting constituent masses to be within stellar or substellar ranges characteristic of planetary systems, I find that (i) this constraint reduces by over 90 per cent the phase space in which central configurations may occur, (ii) both equal-mass and unequal-mass binary stars admit central configurations, (iii) these configurations effectively represent different geometrical extensions of the Sun-Jupiter-Trojan-like architecture, (iv) deviations from these geometries are no greater than ten degrees, and (v) the deviation increases as the substellar masse...

    Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer We prepare PMMA and PS containing ceria. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Characterization by XRD and TEM shows that some of the ceria is well-dispersed in the polymers. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The addition of ceria to both polymers leads to reduced thermal stability. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer In PMMA, the fire retardancy is enhanced but there is little effect in PS. - Abstract: In situ emulsion polymerization was employed to obtain poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)/cerium(IV) dioxide and polystyrene (PS)/cerium(IV) dioxide nanocomposites at two different cerium(IV) dioxide loadings (2.3 wt% and 4.6 wt%). Transmission electron microscope results indicated uniform dispersion of cerium (IV) dioxide in the polymer matrix. Both PMMA and PS nanocomposites exhibit lower thermal stability than the pristine polymers. Microscale combustion calorimeter (MCC) and cone calorimetry are used to evaluate the fire retardancy of the polymer nanocomposites. PMMA/cerium(IV) dioxide showed significant heat release rate (HRR) reduction at low loadings (<5 wt%), while PS/cerium(IV) dioxide exhibits less HRR reduction at the same loadings. An explanation of the role of cerium (IV) dioxide in fire retardancy of polymer/ceria nanocomposites based on XPS results is suggested.

    Full Text Available RESUMO: O Transtorno do Espectro Autista (TEA é uma síndrome caracterizada por prejuízos persistentes na comunicação social recíproca, com interação social restrita e padrões repetitivos de comportamentos, interesses e atividades. Os comportamentos repetitivos na linguagem podem manifestar-se pelo aparecimento da ecolalia, fenômeno persistente caracterizado como um distúrbio de linguagem, com repetição da fala do outro, dividida em imediata ou tardia. Teve como objetivo a verificação do tipo de ecolalia e das habilidades comunicativas em sete meninos com TEA, com idades entre quatro e sete anos, que fazem uso da comunicação oral. Foram realizadas duas atividades distintas: avaliação das crianças em uma sessão de atendimento fonoaudiológico em situação lúdica, analisada pelo Protocolo de Observação Comportamental e aplicação de um questionário com os pais e profissionais para verificar suas opiniões quanto ao uso, tipo e frequência de ecolalia. Das sete crianças do estudo, seis apresentaram ecolalia imediata e uma tardia; a criança que utilizou ecolalia tardia apresentou menor pontuação no protocolo de observação comportamental, porém para os demais sujeitos não houve relação direta entre o tipo e número de ecolalia com a pontuação. O questionário aplicado com pais e profissionais mostrou concordância quanto à presença da ecolalia. As crianças com TEA deste estudo apresentaram habilidades comunicativas e aspectos do desenvolvimento cognitivo comprometidos e maior número de ecolalias imediatas. Estudos com o tema ecolalia ainda são escassos na literatura nacional. Este relato de casos clínicos pode contribuir para futuras pesquisas sobre a caracterização da linguagem em crianças com TEA e conduta terapêutica dos fonoaudiólogos.

No entanto, o iogurte de leite de vaca apresentou maior teor de gordura (p<0,05. Ambos os iogurtes apresentaram perfil de textura similar. A análise sensorial indicou a mesma aceitação para os dois tipos de iogurtes. A informação «feito com leite de cabra» não influenciou na aceitação do respectivo iogurte. Conclui-se que a produção de iogurte tipo sundae sabor maracujá constitui uma alternativa viável para a colocação no mercado de produtos lácteos fermentados derivados do leite de cabra.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo presenta una evaluación del desempeño de varios controladores avanzados aplicados al control cartesiano de un robot manipulador de cuatro grados de libertad, tipo SCARA. Inicialmente se expresa el modelo dinámico del robot, para posteriormente implementar en simulación diversos tipos de controladores. Algunas simulaciones no están basadas en modelos como el PID; otras, en cambio, se basan en modelos como el control por par calculado, el control robusto, el control predictivo, el control PID multivariable y el control por modos deslizantes. Se realiza una evaluación del desempeño de estos controladores probando diversas trayectorias cartesianas de tipo industrial, así como sus respuestas ante perturbaciones y ante cambios en los valores de los parámetros dinámicos.

  13. Platinum(iv) anticancer prodrugs - hypotheses and facts.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Gibson, Dan

    2016-08-16

    In this manuscript we focus on Pt(iv) anticancer prodrugs. We explore the main working hypotheses for the design of effective Pt(iv) prodrugs and note the exceptions to the common assumptions that are prevalent in the field. Special attention was devoted to the emerging class of "dual action" Pt(iv) prodrugs, where bioactive ligands are conjugated to the axial positions of platinum in order to obtain orthogonal or complementary effects that will increase the efficacy of killing the cancer cells. We discuss the rationale behind the design of the "dual action" prodrugs and the results of the pharmacological studies obtained. Simultaneous release of two bioactive moieties inside the cancer cells often triggers several processes that together determine the fate of the cell. Pt(iv) complexes provide many opportunities for applying new concepts in targeting, synergistic cell killing and exploiting novel nanodelivery systems.

A inoculação da amostra de BHV-5, tanto pela via IT como IN, induziu sinais clínicos neurológicos em 100% (12/12 dos coelhos inoculados. Os exames histopatológicos revelaram um quadro de meningoencefalite não-purulenta multifocal, caracterizada por gliose multifocal e infiltrados perivasculares. O vírus foi isolado de várias áreas do SNC desses animais. As amostras de BHV-1, quando inoculadas pela via IT, não foram neurovirulentas. A amostra Los Angeles de BHV-1, quando administrada pela via IN, induziu sinais respiratórios severos, além de sinais neurológicos em 57% (4/7 dos animais inoculados. Entretanto, o exame histopatológico destes quatro animais revelou vasculite e trombose no pulmão e cérebro, este último apresentando focos de necrose neuronal, porém sem lesões indicativas de encefalite. Isso sugere que os sinais neurológicos foram, provavelmente, conseqüentes a prejuízos no fluxo sangüíneo encefálico, e não a danos neuronais provocados pela inoculação desse vírus. A amostra Cooper de BHV-1, quando inoculada pela via IN, induziu apenas sinais leves de infecção respiratória. Estes resultados indicam que apenas a amostra de BHV-5 foi capaz de invadir e replicar no encéfalo dos coelhos quando inoculada tanto por via IN como IT, apresentando neuroinvasividade e neurovirulência. É possível que estas observações tenham relação com o fato de amostras de BHV-5 freqüentemente causarem encefalites, em contraposição a infecções pelo BHV-1, onde

    Full Text Available Introducción: Actualmente en Costa Rica debería considerarse la Diabetes Mellitus tipo 2, un problema de salud pública, por el impacto de sus complicaciones crónicas tanto en el ámbito individual y familiar, como en lo económico, en la escala nacional. Su detección y tratamiento temprano ha demostrado que reduce la carga de sus complicaciones, por lo que su tamizaje podría ser oportuno en personas que tengan factores de riesgo asociados. El objetivo de este estudio fue valorar los resultados de la implementación de un tamizaje de la diabetes tipo 2 a nivel de atención primaria, en personas en riesgo de desarrollada. Metodología: El tamizaje se efectuó durante el año 2000, en la población adulta con al menos un factor de riesgo asociado, en 6 Equipos Básicos de Atención Integral en Salud (EBAlS, del Área de Salud 3 de Desamparados. Este se incorporó en el quehacer diario del EBAIS, sin alterar su programación. Se utilizaron cuatro estrategias para la realización del tamizaje: la oportunista, la selectiva, las programadas a grupos cautivos u organizacionales, y las jornadas de atención comunal o nacional. Resultados: Durante 2000 se lograron captar 174 diabéticos, diagnosticados por primera vez, o que ya lo eran, pero que no estaban registrados al carecer de control en el EBAlS, aunque vivían en el área. La estrategia predominante fue la oportunista, cuya responsabilidad recayó principalmente en el médico. La estrategia programada se realizó por medio de "jornadas" durante las ferias de salud en cada EBAlS y en el Día Mundial de la Diabetes, como parte de la jornada nacional; la cautiva se llevó a cabo en el Hogar Diurno de Ancianos. La selectiva, mediante visita domiciliar, fue mínima, por falta de glucómetros. Estas estrategias permitieron que la cobertura de captación aumentara de un 50% a finales de 1999 a un 70.2% a finales de 2000, considerando la cobertura como el porcentaje dado por el número de pacientes

Os frutos, coletados na safra de 2009/2010, foram descascados, obtendo-se assim os caroços, que, após sanificados, foram submetidos a 3 tipos de embalagens: 1 - Cortados em lâminas de aproximadamente 2 mm de espessura de polpa e seladas a vácuo em polietileno de alta densidade (PEAD; 2 - Caroços embalados e selados a vácuo em sacos de PEAD; 3 - Caroços dispostos em bandejas de poliestireno expandido e envoltos por filme plástico. As amostras foram avaliadas aos 0; 60; 120; 180; 240 e 300 dias de armazenamento. Utilizou-se um delineamento inteiramente casualizado, em esquema fatorial, e os resultados foram submetidos a análises de variância e regressão. O congelamento do pequi submetido aos três tipos de acondicionamento foi eficiente na preservação das características de qualidade como: pH, acidez titulável e açúcares totais durante 300 dias de armazenamento. Os teores de carotenoides e polifenóis extraíveis totais mostraram redução acentuada no acondicionamento da polpa a vácuo. A forma mais indicada de congelamento do pequi para a manutenção da cromaticidade é o acondicionamento do caroço a vácuo ou em bandeja com filme de PVC.

    Presentamos imágenes CCD en los filtros BVI y Hα de una muestra de 10 galaxias Seyfert 1 y Narrow Line Seyfert 1. Recientes observaciones muestran que hay una diferencia significante en el índice espectral óptico entre NLS1s y Sy1 normales, siendo para las primeras del orden de 2. Otra característica importante es que la mayor parte de las NLS1s muestran tasas de FeII/Hβ mayores que las observadas en otras Sy1s. Desde el punto de vista fotométrico, estas galaxias no tienenningún tipo de estudio previo. Presentamos magnitudes totales, perfiles de luminosidad y mapas de color junto con un detallado análisis de la formación estelar en estos objetos. Encontramos que la descomposición en bulbo + disco representa adecuadamente los perfiles de luminosidad de las galaxias de la muestra. Sin embargo, en todos los casos es necesario que el disco tenga un agujero en su centro. El radio de este agujero va desde los 3 a los 9 kpc. Si bien no tenemos aún una explicación para este hecho, los agujeros parecen estar asociados a anillos circumnucleares de alto oscurecimiento E(B-V) ~1. Los perfiles presentan también un fuerte gradiente de color, siendo notablemente más azules hacia la región nuclear. Los objetos de la muestra cubren todo el rango de tipos morfológicos, no obstante, no encontramos regiones de formación estelar en las regiones exteriores de las galaxias. La formación estelar está confinada a la región nuclear y se data en alrededor de 5 x 107 años.

    Full Text Available CONTEXTO: O transtorno do humor bipolar (THB está associado a altas taxas de comorbidades médicas gerais (CMGs e fatores de risco para problemas médicos, porém há escassos relatos sobre a prevalência dessas condições em brasileiros com THB. OBJETIVO: Descrever a prevalência de CMGs em uma amostra de pacientes com THB tipo I. MÉTODOS: Dados clínicos de 195 pacientes com THB tipo I foram revisados para identificação de CMGs. Pacientes com e sem CMGs foram comparados usando o teste não paramétrico Mann-Whitney e o teste qui-quadrado. RESULTADOS: Sessenta e três por cento dos pacientes relataram pelo menos uma comorbidade médica. As condições mais prevalentes foram: enxaqueca (31,8%, hipotireoidismo (24,1%, hipertensão (11,3%, traumatismo craniano (10,3%, asma (9,7%, epilepsia (8,2%, diabetes (5,1%, acidente vascular cerebral (2,1% e hipertireoidismo (1%. Idade e duração da doença foram positivamente associadas à presença de CMGs (p < 0,001. CONCLUSÃO: Em concordância com relatos prévios, a maioria dos pacientes apresentou pelo menos uma doença médica. A principal limitação deste estudo reside no fato de o diagnóstico de CMGs ter sido baseado no autorrelato. Há escassos estudos visando à identificação de comorbidades médicas na população brasileira com THB e este estudo pode contribuir para melhor vigilância diagnóstica, avaliação, tratamento e diminuição da sobrecarga associada ao THB.

El aislamiento en ambos tipos de muestras, sugiere que la reactivación viral fue seguida por una fase de viremia y excreción del virus en las secreciones naturales. Conclusiones. El aislamiento del virus HVB-1 en los reproductores aparentemente sanos pero con títulos a la prueba de seroneutralización, establece la presencia de latencia viral en éstos animales, importante factor epidemiológico en la difusión de la enfermedad a nivel de campo. Se deben iniciar los estudios necesarios para establecer el subtipo de virus actuante en el campo, para conocer sus características antigénicas y su correspondencia con las cepas vacunales.

    Full Text Available Photogrammetry provides a powerful tool to digitally document protected, inaccessible, and rare fossils. This saves manpower in relation to current documentation practice and makes the fragile specimens more available for paleontological analysis and public education. In this study, high resolution orthophoto (0.5 mm and digital surface models (1 mm are used to define fossil boundaries that are then used as an input to automatically extract fossil length information via central lines. In general, central lines are widely used in geosciences as they ease observation, monitoring and evaluation of object dimensions. Here, the 3D central lines are used in a novel paleontological context to study fossilized oyster shells with photogrammetric and LiDAR-obtained 3D point cloud data. 3D central lines of 1121 Crassostrea gryphoides oysters of various shapes and sizes were computed in the study. Central line calculation included: i Delaunay triangulation between the fossil shell boundary points and formation of the Voronoi diagram; ii extraction of Voronoi vertices and construction of a connected graph tree from them; iii reduction of the graph to the longest possible central line via Dijkstra’s algorithm; iv extension of longest central line to the shell boundary and smoothing by an adjustment of cubic spline curve; and v integration of the central line into the corresponding 3D point cloud. The resulting longest path estimate for the 3D central line is a size parameter that can be applied in oyster shell age determination both in paleontological and biological applications. Our investigation evaluates ability and performance of the central line method to measure shell sizes accurately by comparing automatically extracted central lines with manually collected reference data used in paleontological analysis. Our results show that the automatically obtained central line length overestimated the manually collected reference by 1.5% in the test set, which

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available There is growing evidence that dipeptidyl peptidase IV [DPP-IV, EC 3.4.14.5] takes part in the metabolism of biologically active peptides participating in the regulation of growth and transformation of glial cells. However, the knowledge on the DPP-IV expression in human glial and glioma cells is still very limited. In this study, using histochemical and biochemical techniques, the DPP-IV activity was demonstrated in two commercially available human glioma cell lines of different transformation degree, as represented by U373 astrocytoma (Grade III and U87 glioblastoma multiforme (Grade IV lines. Higher total activity of the enzyme, as well as its preferential localisation in the plasma membrane, was observed in U87 cells. Compared to U373 population, U87 cells were morphologically more pleiomorphic, they were cycling at lower rate and expressing less Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein. The data revealed positive correlation between the degree of transformation of cells and activity of DPP-IV. Great difference in expression of this enzyme, together with the phenotypic differences of cells, makes these lines a suitable standard model for further 57 studies of function of this enzyme in human glioma cells.

    The ALICE experiment is shown to be well suited for studies of exclusive final states from central diffractive reactions. The gluon-rich environment of the central system allows detailed QCD studies and searches for exotic meson states, such as glueballs, hybrids and new charmonium-like states. It would also provide a good testing ground for detailed studies of heavy quarkonia. Due to its central barrel performance, ALICE can accurately measure the low-mass central systems with good purity. The efficiency of the Forward Multiplicity Detector (FMD) and the Forward Shower Counter (FSC) system for detecting rapidity gaps is shown to be adequate for the proposed studies. With this detector arrangement, valuable new data can be obtained by tagging central diffractive processes.

  4. Organizational centralization in radiology.

    Aas, I H Monrad

    2006-01-01

    Traditionally, hospitals have a radiology department, where images are taken and interpretation occurs. Teleradiology makes it possible to capture images in one location and transmit them elsewhere for interpretation. Organizational centralization of radiology interpretations is therefore of interest. Empirical data have been collected in qualitative interviews of 26 resource persons with substantial experience with picture archiving and communication systems and teleradiology, from 12 departments of radiology in Norway. The response rate was 90%. A total of 21 theoretically possible types of centralization of image interpretation were identified, representing combinations of three categories of geographical centralization, and seven categories of centralization according to function. Various advantages and disadvantages of centralization were identified. Organizational changes may be decisive for the future of teleradiology, but it may be wise to plan for change in small steps, since we know little about how broad future organizational changes based on teleradiology will be, or what will decide how far particular organizations will go.

    1994-01-01

    We present Goddard High-Resolution Spectrograph observations at 3.5 km/s resolution and signal-to-noise ratios of 30 to 60 for the Al III, Si IV, and N V absorption lines in the far-ultraviolet spectrum of the O9.5 V star zeat Ophiuchi. The measurement reveal three types of highly ionized gas along the 140 pc line of sight. (1) Narrow components of Al III (b = 4.3 km/s, the mean value of (v(helio)) = -7.8 km/s; b = 3.2 km/s, the mean value of (v(sub helio)) = -14.4 km/s) and Si IV (b = 5.3 km/s, the mean value of (v(sub helio)) = -15.0 km/s) trace photionized gas in the expanding H II region surrounding zeta Oph. The observed magnitude and direction of the velocity offset between the Al III and Si IV profiles can be explained by models of H II regions that incorporate expansion. Narrow C IV absorption associated with the H II region is not detected. Predictions of the expected amounts of Si IV and C IV overestimate the column densities of these ions by factors of 30 and more than 10, respectively. The discrepancy may be due to the effects of elemental depletions in the gas and/or to the interaction of the stellar wind with surrounding matter. (2) Broad (b = 15 to 18 km/s) and weak Si IV and C IV absorption components are detected near the mean value of (v(sub helio)) = -26 km/s. The high-ionization species associated with these absorption components are probably produced by electron collisional ionization in a heated gas. This absorption may be physically related to the zeta Oph bow shock ot to a cloud complex situated within the local interstellar medium at d less than 60 pc. The C IV to Si IV column density ratio in this gas is 8, a factor of 6 less than conductive interface models predict, but this discrepancy may be removed by considering the effects of self-photoionization within the cooling gas in the model calculations. (3) A broad (b = 13 km/s) and weak C IV absorption feature detected at the mean value of (v(sub helio)) = -61 km/s is not seen in other

    Neste artigo, investigo as “construções do tipo foi fez”, CFFs, presentes na modalidade falada do Português do Brasil, mediante os resultados obtidos em um estudo mais abrangente realizado em minha tese de doutoramento. Minha análise mostra, entre outras coisas, que as CFFs se formam a partir de uma seqüência mínima de V1 e V2, em que V1 corresponde a um dos verbos ir, chegar e pegar e V2 é relativamente livre. Essas construções podem ocorrer sob a forma de dois tipos distintos. No tipo 1, V1 e V2 são interligados pela conjunção e, e, no tipo 2, V1 e V2 apenas se justapõem. Ademais, V1 e V2 partilham flexões de tempo e pessoa e têm sujeitos correferenciais. Quanto à sua função, as CFFs atuam no nível discursivo-pragmático, na medida em que V1 dramatiza ou enfatiza os eventos descritos em V2.

    Anatomic, functional, and neurochemical imaging studies have provided new investigative tools in the study of central pain. High-resolution imaging studies allow for precise determination of lesion location, whereas functional neuroimaging studies measure pathophysiologic consequences of injury to the central nervous system. Additionally, magnetic resonance spectroscopy evaluates lesion-induced neurochemical changes in specific brain regions that may be related to central pain. The small number of studies to date precludes definitive conclusions, but the recent findings provide information that either supports or refutes current hypotheses and can serve to generate new ideas.

    Using spatially resolved spectroscopy from SDSS-IV MaNGA we have demonstrated that low ionisation emission line regions (LIERs) in local galaxies result from photoionisation by hot evolved stars, not active galactic nuclei. LIERs are ubiquitous in both quiescent galaxies and in the central regions of galaxies where star formation takes place at larger radii. We refer to these two classes of galaxies as extended LIER (eLIER) and central LIER (cLIER) galaxies respectively. cLIERs are late type galaxies located around the green valley, in the transition region between the star formation main sequence and quiescent galaxies. These galaxies display regular disc rotation in both stars and gas, although featuring a higher central stellar velocity dispersion than star forming galaxies of the same mass. cLIERs are consistent with being slowly quenched inside-out; the transformation is associated with massive bulges, pointing towards the importance of bulge growth via secular evolution. eLIERs are morphologically early...

    This paper describes the computer program named SILRA, that determines the outline dimensions of an acoustic steam silencer of the reaction-absorption type. These silencers are employed in the geothermoelectric power plants to lower the high levels of pressure and sound caused by the steam discharge to the surrounding atmosphere. The program has the capacity of predicting the noise level generated by the discharge without silencer depending on the emitting source. On SIRLA was successfully coupled the theory described in specialized literature with optimization techniques and experiences acquired in former designs. SIRLA is a powerful tool that allows the designer to optimize the equipment as well as the design time. [Espanol] En este trabajo se describe el programa de computo SILRA, que determina las dimensiones generales de un silenciador acustico de vapor tipo reaccion-absorcion, estos silenciadores se emplean en las centrales geotermoelectricas para abatir los altos niveles de presion de sonido provocados por la descarga del vapor a la atmosfera. El programa tiene la capacidad de predecir el nivel de ruido que genera la descarga sin silenciador, dependiendo de la fuente emisora. En SILRA se acoplaron con exito la teoria descrita en la literatura especializada con tecnicas de optimacion y experiencias adquiridas en disenos anteriores. SILRA es una poderosa herramienta que permite al disenador optimar tanto el equipo como el tiempo de diseno.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Conhecer os pensamentos, sentimentos e comportamentos em relação à dieta de mulheres portadoras de diabetes tipo 2. MÉTODOS: Trata-se de um estudo descritivo exploratório, de natureza qualitativa. Foram entrevistadas oito mulheres portadoras de diabetes tipo 2 em uma Unidade Básica de Saúde do município de Ribeirão Preto, SP, em janeiro de 2003. Foi utilizada entrevista semi-estruturada para a coleta dos dados. O referencial teórico adotado foi a teoria das representações sociais. Os registros audiogravados e transcritos foram submetidos à análise temática de conteúdo. RESULTADOS: Os resultados evidenciaram dificuldade no seguimento da dieta prescrita, em função dos diversos significados associados, tais como a perda do prazer de comer e beber, da autonomia e da liberdade para se alimentar. Assim, seguir a dieta adquire caráter extremamente aversivo e cerceador, tendo representação de que realizá-la traz prejuízos à saúde. A freqüente ausência de sintomas foi citada como um dos aspectos que dificultam o seguimento da dieta. Outra dificuldade foi tocar, olhar e manipular os alimentos durante o seu preparo e não poder ingeri-los. Os alimentos doces despontaram como algo extremamente desejado. Transgressão e desejo alimentar estão igualmente presentes na vida das pessoas entrevistadas. Seguir o padrão dietético recomendado elicia tristeza, e o ato de comer, muitas vezes, vem acompanhado de medo, culpa e revolta. CONCLUSÕES: O comportamento alimentar da mulher portadora de diabetes tipo 2 é bastante complexo e precisa ser compreendido à luz dos aspectos psicológicos, biológicos, sociais, culturais, psicológicos e econômicos para maior eficácia das intervenções educativas.OBJECTIVE: To explore type 2 diabetes women's thoughts, feelings and behaviors concerning diet.

    The synthesis, X-ray crystal structure, vibrational and optical spectroscopy for the eight-coordinate thiocyanate compounds, [Et4 N]4 [Pu(IV) (NCS)8 ], [Et4 N]4 [Th(IV) (NCS)8 ], and [Et4 N]4 [Ce(III) (NCS)7 (H2 O)] are reported. Thiocyanate was found to rapidly reduce plutonium to Pu(III) in acidic solutions (pHthiocyanate complex [Et4 N]4 [Pu(IV) (NCS)8 ] was crystallized when a large excess of [Et4 N][NCS] was present. This compound, along with its U(IV) analogue, maintains inner-sphere thiocyanate coordination in acetonitrile based on the observation of intense ligand-to-metal charge-transfer bands. Spectroscopic and crystallographic data do not support the interaction of the metal orbitals with the ligand π system, but support an enhanced An(IV) -NCS interaction, as the Lewis acidity of the metal ion increases from Th to Pu.

    Diabetic nephropathy is a lethal complication of diabetes mellitus and a major type of chronic kidney disease. Dysregulation of the Akt pathway and its downstream cascades, including mTOR, NFκB, and Erk1/2, play a critical role in the development of diabetic nephropathy. Astragaloside IV is a major component of Huangqi and exerts renal protection in a mouse model of type 1 diabetes. The current study was undertaken to investigate the protective effects of diet supplementation of AS-IV on renal injury in db/db mice, a type 2 diabetic mouse model. Results showed that administration of AS-IV reduced albuminuria, ameliorated changes in the glomerular and tubular pathology, and decreased urinary NAG, NGAL, and TGF-β1 in db/db mice. AS-IV also attenuated the diabetes-related activation of Akt/mTOR, NFκB, and Erk1/2 signaling pathways without causing any detectable hepatotoxicity. Collectively, these findings showed AS-IV to be beneficial to type 2 diabetic nephropathy, which might be associated with the inhibition of Akt/mTOR, NFκB and Erk1/2 signaling pathways.

    2011-12-01

    The basic equivalent circuit of a p-n junction solar cell is most commonly represented as consisting of a current source in parallel with two diodes and two parasitic resistances. The output of a solar cell is measured by obtaining the current-voltage (I-V) characteristics for different illumination intensities, and various parameters are extracted from these characteristics. Because the nature of the information derived from these characteristics is not obvious to the beginning students in photovoltaics, a simulation using SPICE was utilized to explain three solar cell I-V characteristics—dark I-V, illuminated I-V, and open circuit voltage versus the short circuit current (illumination intensity). Students can construct a solar cell and study the effect of the diode and parasitic parameters on the three output I-V characteristics. Series and parallel combinations of solar cells for arrays and modules using bypass diodes are demonstrated using SPICE as educational tools for understanding the role of bypass diodes.

    The radiological findings in two siblings with mucopolysaccharidosis type VI (muco polysaccharide VI) are reported. Conventional radiographs of the skeleton and magnetic resonance imaging examination of the central nervous system were performed. Skeletal abnormalities in patients with mucopolysaccharidosis type VI have already well described by other authors and are generally similar to other mucopolysaccharides. Magnetic resonance imaging of the central nervous system may be helpful in the differential diagnosis, assessment of extension, and follow-up of these diseases. (author)

    Full Text Available INTRODUCTION Laryngoscopy and intubation is an integral part for providing general anaesthesia to patients undergoing various types of surgery. It also plays an important role in critical care units viz. for providing mechanical ventilation. It is a very essential tool in the hands of anaesthesiologist in maintaining airway. The present study is undertaken to determine and compare the efficacy of single bolus dose of IV esmolol 1 mg/kg and IV fentanyl 2 mcg/kg in attenuating the haemodynamic responses to laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation and to ascertain the effectiveness of esmolol hydrochloride and fentanyl citrate in suppressing sympathetic responses. MATERIAL & METHODS The study was conducted under the Department of Anaesthesiology and Critical Care, Assam Medical College and Hospital, Dibrugarh, during the period July 2013 to June 2014. For this purpose, 150 patients of either sex between 20-50 years of ASA I & II physical status were selected after obtaining informed and written consent and were divided into two groups namely, Group E receiving IV esmolol (1 mg/kg and Group F receiving IV fentanyl (2 mcg/kg. RESULTS Inj. fentanyl 2 mcg/kg IV administered 5 minutes before laryngoscopy and intubation was able to prevent adverse haemodynamic changes better than Inj. esmolol 1 mg/kg IV administered 3 minutes prior to laryngoscopy and intubation during elective surgeries under general anaesthesia. CONCLUSION Hence, from the findings of this study we can conclude that IV bolus dose of fentanyl 2 mcg/kg administered 5 minutes before laryngoscopy and intubation can attenuate the sympathetic response to laryngoscopy and intubation without any side effects of the drug in healthy patients undergoing elective surgeries under general anaesthesia.

  17. Structural characterization of outer membrane components of the type IV pili system in pathogenic Neisseria.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Samta Jain

    Full Text Available Structures of the type IV pili secretin complexes from Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Neisseria meningitidis, embedded in outer membranes were investigated by transmission electron microscopy. Single particle averaging revealed additional domains not observed previously. Secretin complexes of N. gonorrhoeae showed a double ring structure with a 14-15-fold symmetry in the central ring, and a 14-fold symmetry of the peripheral ring with 7 spikes protruding. In secretin complexes of N. meningitidis, the spikes were absent and the peripheral ring was partly or completely lacking. When present, it had a 19-fold symmetry. The structures of the complexes in several pil mutants were determined. Structures obtained from the pilC1/C2 adhesin and the pilW minor pilin deletion strains were similar to wild-type, whereas deletion of the homologue of N. meningitidis PilW resulted in the absence of secretin structures. Remarkably, the pilE pilin subunit and pilP lipoprotein deletion mutants showed a change in the symmetry of the peripheral ring from 14 to 19 and loss of spikes. The pilF ATPase mutant also lost the spikes, but maintained 14-fold symmetry. These results show that secretin complexes contain previously unidentified large and flexible extra domains with a probable role in stabilization or assembly of type IV pili.

    Full Text Available A estrutura de cada polímero tem influência direta sobre a sua densidade e suas propriedades mecânicas. Ramificações longas, como as presentes no polietileno de baixa densidade, por exemplo, aumentam a resistência ao impacto, diminuem a densidade e facilitam o processamento, enquanto que as ramificações curtas, presentes no polietileno linear de baixa densidade, aumentam a cristalinidade e a resistência à tração em relação ao polietileno de baixa densidade (obtido via radicais livres. As principais aplicações, assim como o tipo de processamento usado para cada tipo de polietileno, são apresentadas neste trabalho. Por último, é feita uma comparação entre catalisadores Ziegler-Natta e catalisadores metalocênicos. O polietileno produzido por catalisador metalocênico apresenta uma estreita distribuição de peso molecular e uma distribuição mais uniforme de comonômeros incorporados às cadeias poliméricas do que o polietileno produzido por catalisadores Ziegler-Natta. Essas características propiciam uma melhora na resistência à tração do produto final.The structure of each polymer has a direct influence on its density and mechanical properties. Long-chain branches, such as those present in low density polyethylene, for example, increase its impact strength, decrease density and improve processing. Short-chain branches present in linear low density polyethylene, on the other hand, increase crystallinity and tensile strength in comparison to low density polyethylene (produced by free radical initiators. The main applications and the type of processing used for each type of polyethylene are also presented in this work. A comparison between Ziegler-Natta and metallocene catalysts is carried out. The polyethylene produced by metallocene catalysts presents narrow molecular weight distribution and a uniform distribution of comonomer incorporated into the polymer chain. Those characteristics provide an enhancement on the

    Full Text Available La lepra es una patología infecciosa de carácter crónico, caracterizada por un amplio compromiso cutáneo, asociado a neuropatía, con bajas tasas de mortalidad, pero con un alto índice de discapacidad. Es causada por la infección por el bacilo, Mycobacterium leprae. A pesar que se conoce desde la antigüedad se considera un problema persistente de salud pública en áreas subtropicales donde es endémica. Su mecanismo de transmisión, es por medio de gotitas respirato-rias. Su espectro clínico es muy variado, depende de la forma en que el sistema inmunitario del huésped reacciona frente al agente infeccioso, por lo que se reconocen los polos determinados como tuberculoide y lepromatoso, una forma indeterminada y borderline. Por otro lado se considera que la reacciones lepróticas (tipo 1, tipo 2 y fenómeno de lucio son complicaciones de la hiperreactividad inmunológica que aparece cuando se afecta el equilibrio inmunológico en el huésped. En 1982 la Organización Mundial de la Salud estableció la terapia multidrogas como herramienta eficaz para el control de esta entidad. Actualmente el régimen farmacológico se establece teniendo en cuenta la clasificación que distingue al enfermo en paucibacilar y multibacilar. Presentamos un paciente masculino de 64 años, con antecedente de lepra lepromatosa multibacilar desde hace 3 años, con tratamiento irregular, suspendido 6 meses antes de clínica de ingreso consistente sepsis de origen urinario, con posterior septicemia asociada al catéter, a quien se le realiza tratamiento antibiótico de amplio espectro, con evolución satisfactoria del estado hemodinámico y manejo de la lepra ambulatorio.

  8. Overview of Generation IV (Gen IV) Reactor Designs - Safety and Radiological Protection Considerations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The purpose of this document is to provide an updated overview of specific safety and radiological protection issues for all the reactor concepts adopted by the GIF (Generation IV International Forum), independent of their advantages or disadvantages in terms of resource optimization or long-lived-waste reduction. In particular, this new document attempts to bring out the advantages and disadvantages of each concept in terms of safety, taking into account the Western European Nuclear Regulators' Association (WENRA) statement concerning safety objectives for new nuclear power plants. Using an identical framework for each reactor concept (sodium-cooled fast reactors or SFR, high / very-high temperature helium-cooled reactors of V/HTR, gas-cooled fast reactors or GFR, lead-or lead / bismuth-cooled fast reactors or LFR, molten salt reactors or MSR, and supercritical-water-cooled reactors or SCWR), this summary report provides some general conclusions regarding their safety and radiological protection issues, inspired by WENRA's safety objectives and on the basis of available information. Initial lessons drawn from the events at the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant in March 2011 have also been taken into account in IRSN's analysis of each reactor concept

    Intelligence testing is used for many purposes including identification of children for proper educational placement (e.g., children with learning disabilities, or intellectually gifted students), and to guide education by identifying cognitive strengths and weaknesses so that teachers can adapt their instructional style to students' specific learning styles. Most of the research involving intelligence tests has been conducted in highly developed Western countries, yet the need for intelligence testing is as or even more important in developing countries. The present study, conducted through the Vietnam National University Clinical Psychology CRISP Center, focused on the cultural adaptation of the WISC-IV intelligence test for Vietnam. We report on (a) the adaptation process including the translation, cultural analysis and modifications involved in adaptation, (b) present results of two pilot studies, and (c) describe collection of the standardization sample and results of analyses with the standardization sample, with the goal of sharing our experience with other researchers who may be involved in or interested in adapting or developing IQ tests for non-Western, non-English speaking cultures.

  10. A type IV pilus mediates DNA binding during natural transformation in Streptococcus pneumoniae.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Raphaël Laurenceau

    Full Text Available Natural genetic transformation is widely distributed in bacteria and generally occurs during a genetically programmed differentiated state called competence. This process promotes genome plasticity and adaptability in Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. Transformation requires the binding and internalization of exogenous DNA, the mechanisms of which are unclear. Here, we report the discovery of a transformation pilus at the surface of competent Streptococcus pneumoniae cells. This Type IV-like pilus, which is primarily composed of the ComGC pilin, is required for transformation. We provide evidence that it directly binds DNA and propose that the transformation pilus is the primary DNA receptor on the bacterial cell during transformation in S. pneumoniae. Being a central component of the transformation apparatus, the transformation pilus enables S. pneumoniae, a major Gram-positive human pathogen, to acquire resistance to antibiotics and to escape vaccines through the binding and incorporation of new genetic material.

Para esto, tomamos los datos procedentes de un contexto ubicado en la cuenca superior del río Maipo: Caletón Los Queltehues, y escogimos, de su secuencia ocupacional, los componentes Arcaico IV y Alfarero temprano (5000 a 1000 AP. Los resultados de los análisis no arrojaron mayores variaciones entre ambos períodos en términos de taxones explotados, frecuencia de partes esqueletarias, modificaciones culturales y fragmentación de los restos óseos. De manera similar, las materias primas, las categorías morfofuncionales y los tipos de desechos líticos se observaron relativamente constantes. Sólo se registraron cambios en la tasa de la depositación, la frecuencia de modificaciones naturales y la diversidad de actividades de uso/descarte lítico, las que son interpretadas como una tendencia hacia una variación en la recurrencia e intensidad de la ocupación, pero no en cuanto a su funcionalidad.This article evaluates long-term trends in change and continuity of lithic and faunal use strategies in hunter-gatherer contexts in the central Chilean cordillera from technological and behavioral perspectives.

  20. IVs to Skip for Immunizing WEP against FMS Attack

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kobara, Kazukuni; Imai, Hideki

    The WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is a part of IEEE 802.11 standard designed for protecting over-the-air communication. While almost all of the WLAN (Wireless LAN) cards and the APs (Access Points) support WEP, a serious key recovery attack (aka FMS attack) was identified by Fluhrer et al. The FMS attack can basically be prevented by skipping IVs (Initial Values) used in the attack, but naive skip methods reveal information on the WEP key since most of them depend on the WEP key and the patterns of the skipped IV reveal it. In order to skip IVs safely, the skip patterns must be chosen carefully. In this paper, we review the attack conditions (6) and (7), whose success probability is the highest, 0.05, amongst all known conditions to guess one key-byte from one packet. Then we identify their safe skip patterns.

Telenovela escrita por Gloria Perez autora conhecida pelos temas “étnicos” e de cunho social, tais como, ciganos, muçulmanos, indianos, transplante de órgãos, alcoolismo, imigração ilegal, clonagem humana. O argumento que sustento é que a novela “salvou” a comunidade islâmica brasileira da “invisibilidade” e trouxe para dentro das casas brasileiras um pouco da cultura árabe-islâmica, que embora estereotipados, contribuíram significativamente para revelar à nossa sociedade quem são os muçulmanos e em que eles acreditam. Ao escrever o artigo me deparei com outro tipo de “invisibilidade”, os quase inexistentes trabalhos em antropologia visual que contemplam análise de imagens de telenovelas. Neste sentido, este texto busca contribuir com outros modos de ver a televisão, em particular, a telenovela.

    Full Text Available The present article analyses the principal forms of organization that are linked to the participative practice of the voluntary sector, paying especial attention to the “hetero-aid” and the “mutualism”. Likewise, it analyses in depth the conflict between formal and substantive rationality that exists in the voluntary organizations. The present study also emphasizes the progressive prevalence of the formal rationality, especially in the organization dynamics linked to the management. Finally, this analysis proposes the existence of another critical problem for the voluntary organizations, the displacement of objectives.

    El artículo aborda la caracterización de los principales tipos organizativos ligados a la práctica participativa del voluntariado, fundamentalmente la “heteroayuda”, pero también el mutualismo. Asimismo, se profundiza en el análisis del “conflicto” existente entre racionalidad formal y sustantiva en el seno de las organizaciones voluntarias, apuntándose, además, el progresivo dominio de la racionalidad formal —especialmente en las dinámicas organizativas vinculadas a la gestión. También se delimita otro problema especialmente crítico para las organizaciones voluntarias, a saber, el desplazamiento de objetivos

    Full Text Available Mortars with lime-tufa-gipsum binder where studied when submitted to different types of curing. The mortars were prepared with a binder/sand ratio of 1/3 and a/c= 0,7, and they were demoulded after 24 hours. In the tested specimens, variations in values of bending strength, compressive strength and volumetric weight were observed. The best values of mechanical strength were obtained with the specimens submitted to accelerated treatment such as curing in autoclave with saturated vapour, while the smallest values of strength were achieved in the specimens submitted only to weathering.

    Se estudiaron morteros con un conglomerante de cal-toba-yeso, sometidos a diferentes tipos de curado. Los morteros fueron preparados con una relación conglomerante arena de 1/3 y a/c 0,7 desmoldadas a las 24 horas. Se observaron variaciones en los valores de resistencia a la flexión, compresión y peso volumétrico en las probetas ensayadas, y los mejores valores de resistencia mecánica se obtuvieron con aquellas probetas sometidas a tratamientos acelerados, como el curado en autoclave a vapor saturado, mientras que las menores resistencias se produjeron en probetas sometidas sólo a la intemperie.

    Full Text Available Las federaciones de identidad están surgiendo en los últimos años con el fin de facilitar el despliegue de entornos de uso compartido de recursos entre las organizaciones. Como una característica común de estos entornos es el uso de mecanismos de control de acceso basado en la identidad del usuario, desafortunadamente, la mayoría de las federaciones se han dado cuenta que la identidad del usuario no es suficiente para ofrecer un control de acceso más grano y el valor agregado. Por lo tanto, la información adicional, como los atributos de usuario, deben ser tenidos en cuenta. En este artículo se hace la descripción de los componentes de un sistema federativo tipo Eduroam, teniendo en cuenta el uso de atributos de usuarios adoptando las decisiones de autorización durante el control del proceso de acceso.

    Full Text Available El presente estudio relacionó las variables sobrecarga del cuidador y los estilos de afrontamiento con la saludgeneral percibida en 300 cuidadoras de personas con demencia tipo Alzheimer en estadio II, divididas en220 cuidadoras informales y 80 cuidadoras formales no profesionales, evaluadas en la sede nacional de laFundación Alzheimer de Venezuela, ubicada en la ciudad de Caracas - Venezuela. Entre los resultados másrelevantes destaca que las cuidadoras informales presentan mayores niveles de sobrecarga, en comparacióncon las cuidadoras formales no profesionales. Esto se asoció a un mayor compromiso en la salud percibidade aquellas, que específicamente presentaron mayores síntomas somáticos y de ansiedad. En cuanto a los estilosde afrontamiento, se encontró que las cuidadoras informales usan significativamente más afrontamientoemocional y menos afrontamiento racional y por desapego, que las cuidadoras formales no profesionales, loque lleva a comprometer más la salud de las primeras. Finalmente, los indicadores de salud están directamenterelacionados con mayor sobrecarga, de tal forma que a mayor sobrecarga, mayor deterioro, lo que se observacon mayor magnitud en las cuidadoras informales.

    Full Text Available Este trabajo tiene por objetivo presentar la valuación de opciones europeas a través del método probabilista utilizando distribuciones α-estables como una alternativa de valuación de opciones en el mercado mexicano. El uso de estas distribuciones para la modelación de series financieras permite superar la principal debilidad de la valuación clásica que supone normalidad al captar los efectos de las colas pesadas y la asimetría propias de las series financieras. Uno de los principales resultados que se encontró se refiere a los diferenciales en la valuación de opciones entre ambos modelos y el efecto de los parámetros de la distribución en los precios; para mostrar esta diferencia, se realiza la valuación de una opción de compra y una opción de venta sobre el tipo de cambio peso-dólar. De igual forma se calcularon las medidas de sensibilidad básicas de las opciones (delta, gama y rho y se analizó el efecto del parámetro de estabilidad α en la volatilidad implícita de las opciones al asumir la valuación α-estable como el precio de mercado.

    2007-01-01

    Court culture can be defined as a range of cultural forms (festival culture, painting, literature, music, architecture) employed for the enhancement of princely status and the communication of political messages. Christian IV evidently set great store on court culture beginning with his magnificent...... coronation in 1596, reaching a climax with the "great wedding" (of crown prince Christian) in 1634 and at last colapsing during the military and political crisis in the last years of his long reign (1588/96-1648). Danish court culture during the reign of Christian IV decidedly was on an European level, and...

  18. The adsorption of plutonium IV and V on goethite

    The adsorption of Pu(IV) and Pu(V) on goethite (αFeOOH) from NaNO 3 solution shows distinct differences related to the different hydrolytic character of these two oxidation states. Under similar solution conditions, the adsorption edge of the more strongly hydrolyzable Pu(IV) occurs in the pH range 3 to 5 while that for Pu(V) is at pH 5 to 7. The adsorption edge for Pu(V) shifts with time to lower pH values and this appears to be due to the reduction of Pu(V) to Pu(IV) in the presence of the goethite surface. These results suggest that redox transformations may be an important aspect of Pu adsorption chemistry and the resulting scavenging of Pu from natural waters. Increasing ionic strength (from 0.1 M to 3 M NaCl or NaNO 3 and 0.03 M to 0.3 M Na 2SO 4) did not influence Pu(IV) or Pu(V) adsorption. In the presence of dissolved organic carbon (DOC), Pu(V) reduction to Pu(IV) occurred in solution. Pu(IV) adsorption on goethite decreased by 30% in the presence of 240 ppm natural DOC found in Soap Lake, Washington waters. Increasing concentrations of carbonate ligands decreased Pu(IV) and Pu(V) adsorption on goethite, with an alkalinity of 1000 meq/l totally inhibiting adsorption. The Pu-goethite adsorption system provides the data base for developing a thermodynamic model of Pu interaction with an oxide surface and with dissolved ligands, using the MINEQL computer program. From the model calculations we determined equilibrium constants for the adsorption of Pu(IV) hydrolysis species. The model was then applied to Pu adsorption in carbonate media to see how the presence of CO 3-2 could influence the mobility of Pu. The decrease in adsorption appears to be due to formation of a Pu-CO 3 complex. Model calculations were used to predict what the adsorption curves would look like if Pu-CO 3 complexes formed.
