  1. Processing and Distribution of STO2 Data

    Science.gov (United States)

    Goldsmith, Paul

    We propose in this ADAP to reduce the data obtained in the December 2016 flight of the STO2 Antarctic Balloon observatory. In just over 20 days of taking data, STO2 observed over 2.5 square degrees of the inner Milky Way in the 1900 GHz (158 m) fine structure line of ionized carbon ([CII]). This includes over 320,000 spectra with velocity resolution of 0.16 km/s and angular resolution 1 . In common with the higher bands of the Herschel HIFI instrument that also employed hot electron bolometer (HEB) mixers, there are significant baseline issues with the data that make reduction a significant challenge. Due to the year’s postponement of STO2 launch due to weather in 2015/16 season, funds for data analysis were largely redirected to support the team who enabled the successful launch and flight. A supplementary focused effort is thus needed to make STO2 data readily usable by the astronomical community, which is what we propose here. This ADAP will be a two-year program, including the following steps:: (1) Refine and optimize algorithms for excision of bad channels, correction for receiver gain changes, removal of variable bad baselines, final baseline adjustment, and verification of calibration. (2) Develop and integrated pipeline incorporating the optimized algorithms; process entire STO2 data set using the pipeline, and make an initial release of the data (DR1) to the public. (3) Refine data calibration including ancillary data sets coincident with the STO2 fields, make the data VO-compliant. (4) Write documentation for the pipeline and publish in appropriate journal; release final second data release (DR2) to the public, and hand off to permanent data repositories the NASA/IPAC IRSA database and the Harvard University Dataverse, and Cyverse, led by the University of Arizona. Members of the STO2 data reduction team have extensive experience with HIFI data, and particularly with the HEB fine structure spectra. We are thus confident that we can build on this

    Managing a collaborative production Grid infrastructure requires to identify and handle every issue, which might arise, in a timely manner. Currently, the most complex problem of the data Grid infrastructure relates to the data management because of its distributed nature. To ensure that problems are quickly addressed and solved, each site should contribute to the solution providing any useful information about services that run in its administrative domain. Often Grid sites' administrators to be effective must collect, organize and examine the scattered logs events that are produced from every service and component of the Storage Element. This paper focuses on the problem of gathering the events logs on a Grid Storage Element and describes the design of a new service, called StoRMon. StoRMon will be able to collect, archive, analyze and report on events logs produced by each service of Storage Element during the execution of its tasks. The data and the processed information will be available to the site administrators by using a single contact-point to easily identify security incidents, fraudulent activity, and the operational issues mainly. The new service is applied to a Grid Storage Element characterized by StoRM, GridFTP and YAMSS, and collects the usage data of StoRM, transferring and hierarchical storage services.

    We have identified a T-DNA insertion mutation of Arabidopsis (ecotype C24), named sto1 (salt tolerant), that results in enhanced germination on both ionic (NaCl) and nonionic (sorbitol) hyperosmotic media. sto1 plants were more tolerant in vitro than wild type to Na+ and K+ both for germination and subsequent growth but were hypersensitive to Li+. Postgermination growth of the sto1 plants on sorbitol was not improved. Analysis of the amino acid sequence revealed that STO1 encodes a 9-cis-epoxicarotenoid dioxygenase (similar to 9-cis-epoxicarotenoid dioxygenase GB:AAF26356 [Phaseolus vulgaris] and to NCED3 GB:AB020817 [Arabidopsis]), a key enzyme in the abscisic acid (ABA) biosynthetic pathway. STO1 transcript abundance was substantially reduced in mutant plants. Mutant sto1 plants were unable to accumulate ABA following a hyperosmotic stress, although their basal ABA level was only moderately altered. Either complementation of the sto1 with the native gene from the wild-type genome or supplementation of ABA to the growth medium restored the wild-type phenotype. Improved growth of sto1 mutant plants on NaCl, but not sorbitol, medium was associated with a reduction in both NaCl-induced expression of the ICK1 gene and ethylene accumulation. Osmotic adjustment of sto1 plants was substantially reduced compared to wild-type plants under conditions where sto1 plants grew faster. The sto1 mutation has revealed that reduced ABA can lead to more rapid growth during hyperionic stress by a signal pathway that apparently is at least partially independent of signals that mediate nonionic osmotic responses.

    One of the major abiotic stress conditions limiting healthy growth of trees is salinity stress. The use of gene manipulation for increased tolerance to abiotic stress has been successful in many plant species. Overexpression of the Arabidopsis SALT TOLERANT1 (STO1) gene leads to increased concentrations of 9-cis-epoxycarotenoid dioxygenase3, a vital enzyme in Arabidopsis abscisic acid biosynthesis. In the present work, the Arabidopsis STO1 gene (AtSTO1) was overexpressed in poplar to determine if the transgene would confer enhanced salt tolerance to the generated transgenics. The results of multiple greenhouse trials indicated that the transgenic poplar lines had greater levels of resistance to NaCl than wild-type plants. Analysis using RT-PCR indicated a variation in the relative abundance of the STO1 transcript in the transgenics that coincided with tolerance to salt. Several physiological and morphological changes such as greater overall biomass, greater root biomass, improved photosynthesis, and greater pith size were observed in the transgenics when compared to controls undergoing salt stress. These results indicated overexpression of AtSTO1 improved salt tolerance in poplar.

    Full Text Available Extrakorporal erzeugte Stoßwellen wurden erstmals 1980 zur Zertrümmerung von Nierensteinen eingesetzt und sind seitdem zur Methode der Wahl bei den meisten Steinen in Niere und Harntrakt geworden. Neben der Anwendung in der Lithotripsie werden Stoßwellen seit den 1990er Jahren zunehmend für eine Reihe von Indikationen im muskuloskelettalen Bereich mit Erfolg angewendet. Stoßwellen sind eine Form mechanischer Energie, die ohne Verletzung der Körperoberfläche durch die Haut in den Körper eingeleitet und in vorherbestimmten Tiefen zur Wirkung gebracht werden können. Erzeugt werden Stoßwellen in der Medizin durch elektrohydraulische, piezoelektrische oder elektromagnetische Verfahren. Je nach Anwendungsbereich wird die Energie mit Hilfe von akustischen Linsen oder Reflektoren fokussiert und mit Hilfe von bildgebenden Verfahren auf Zielgebiete im Körper gerichtet. Zur Charakterisierung der Stoßwellenfelder werden die Parameter Druck, Energie, Energieflußdichte und verschiedene Definitionen für die Fokus- und Behandlungszone verwendet. Neben der mechanischen Kraftentfaltung an akustischen Grenzflächen wird auch im Gewebe Kavitation erzeugt, die sekundär zu nadelstichartigen Belastungen von Grenzflächen führt. Auf Grund dieser Krafteinwirkungen sind einerseits Fragmentationseffekte an spröden Materialien (z. B. Nierensteine oder auch stimulierende Effekte wie Erzeugung von Aktionspotentialen an Nervenzellen und biologische Reaktionen durch Freisetzung verschiedener Stoffe zu verzeichnen. Obwohl speziell die biologischen Wirkungsmechanismen weitgehend unbekannt sind, wird die Stoßwellentherapie erfolgreich zur Steigerung der Blutversorgung und von Stoffwechselprozessen eingesetzt. Letztendlich werden darüber dauerhafte Heilungsprozesse angeregt.

  7. Morphodynamic Modeling Using The SToRM Computational System

    Simoes, F.

    2016-12-01

    The framework of the work presented here is the open source SToRM (System for Transport and River Modeling) eco-hydraulics modeling system, which is one of the models released with the iRIC hydraulic modeling graphical software package (http://i-ric.org/). SToRM has been applied to the simulation of various complex environmental problems, including natural waterways, steep channels with regime transition, and rapidly varying flood flows with wetting and drying fronts. In its previous version, however, channel bed was treated as static and the ability of simulating sediment transport rates or bed deformation was not included. The work presented here reports SToRM's newly developed extensions to expand the system's capability to calculate morphological changes in alluvial river systems. The sediment transport module of SToRM has been developed based on the general recognition that meaningful advances depend on physically solid formulations and robust and accurate numerical solution methods. The basic concepts of mass and momentum conservation are used, where the feedback mechanisms between the flow of water, the sediment in transport, and the bed changes are directly incorporated in the governing equations used in the mathematical model. This is accomplished via a non-capacity transport formulation based on the work of Cao et al. [Z. Cao et al., "Non-capacity or capacity model for fluvial sediment transport," Water Management, 165(WM4):193-211, 2012], where the governing equations are augmented with source/sink terms due to water-sediment interaction. The same unsteady, shock-capturing numerical schemes originally used in SToRM were adapted to the new physics, using a control volume formulation over unstructured computational grids. The presentation will include a brief overview of these methodologies, and the result of applications of the model to a number of relevant physical test cases with movable bed, where computational results are compared to experimental data.

    1994-12-31

    Microstructure of Yittria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) and Strontium Titanate (STO) of radio frequency magnetron sputtered buffer layers was studied at various sputtering conditions on Si<100>, Sapphire and LaAlO{sub 3} <100> substrates. The effect of substrate temperatures upto 800 C and sputtering gas pressures in the range of 50 mTorr. of growth conditions was studied. The buffer layers of YSZ and STO showed a strong tendency for columnar structure with variation growth conditions. The buffer layers of YSZ and STO showed orientation. The tendency for columnar growth was observed above 15 mTorr sputtering gas pressure and at high substrate temperatures. Post annealing of these films in oxygen atmosphere reduced the oxygen deficiency and strain generated during growth of the films. Strong c-axis oriented superconducting YBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 9}O{sub 7-x} (YBCO) thin films were obtained on these buffer layers using pulsed laser ablation technique. YBCO films deposited on multilayers of YSZ and STO were shown to have better superconducting properties.

    Full Text Available Catalysis is an important area of chemistry, with an extensive amount of work going on in this area of sciences, toward synthesis and evaluation of newer catalysts. There are many reports for different conversion reactions such as oxidation, reduction, coupling, alkylation, and acylation for which various catalysts have been used such as mixed metal oxides, metal nanoparticles, metal organic complexes and many others. Among the many catalysts reported, the one catalyst that caught our attention due to its exploitation for a plethora of organic conversions is the sulfated tin oxide (STO, which is due to the low cost, greater stability and high efficiency of the catalyst. In this review, we have attempted to compile data about the structural properties of STO, and its applications as catalysts in various organic synthesis are presented. The literature data up to 2014 were collected and considered for the review.

    Full Text Available The heterostructure thin films of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ/strontium titanate (STO/YSZ with various thicknesses were deposited on MgO single crystal substrate by pulsed laser deposition (PLD method. The structural and electrical properties of the YSZ/STO/YSZ heterostructure were studied through X-ray diffraction (XRD and electrical conductivity measurements. The in-plane conductivities of the thin films were measured and compared with that of the bulk sample. The highest conductivities were reported for those samples with the thinnest YSZ (220 layers. The observed enhancement in the lateral ionic conductivity was probably caused by the combination of the misfit dislocation density and elastic strain in the interfaces. The enhanced ionic mobility was discussed in terms of the disorder introduced in the oxygen sublattice through the epitaxial strain at the interfaces.

  17. Towards the integration of StoRM on Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3)

    2008-07-01

    In Grid systems, a core resource being shared among geographically-dispersed communities of users is the storage. For this resource, a standard interface specification (Storage Resource Management or SRM) was defined and is being evolved in the context of the Open Grid Forum. By implementing this interface, all storage resources part of a Grid could be managed in an homogenous fashion. In this work, we consider the extension of StoRM (STOrage Resource Manager, an implementation of SRM v2.2) in order to integrate a new type of storage resource: the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). Amazon S3 is a simple Web services interface offering access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of Web sites. By performing this integration, we offer to the Grid community the capability to manage and access an incredible amount of storage resources freeing them from considering the costs associated with server maintenance, or whether they have enough storage available. The characteristics of StoRM are suitable for a smooth integration with Amazon S3. In particular, StoRM is designed to be easily adapted to the underlying storage resource via a plug-in mechanism, therefore a new plugin for integration with the Amazon S3 Web Service will be written. As regards the access policies, StoRM translates the Grid authorization rules into the Amazon S3 ones and applies them to the Amazon Web Services identity.

    The addition of chemotherapy to radiation aids in the survival of patients with head and neck cancer but also increases acute toxicity, primarily painful oral mucositis and dermatitis exacerbated by xerostomia. The consequences of these side effects often result in hospitalization and breaks in treatment, which lead to lower locoregional control and survival rates. No strategies reliably prevent radiation-induced mucositis; therefore, emphasis is placed on management to prevent treatment breaks. The NO SToPS approach describes specific multidisciplinary strategies for management of nutrition; oral care; skin care; therapy for swallowing, range of motion, and lymphedema; pain; and social support to assist patients through this difficult therapy.

  20. Preamble-based frequency-domain joint CFO and STO estimation for OQAM-based filter bank multicarrier

    2014-12-01

    Filter bank multicarrier systems, similarly to orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), are very sensitive to carrier frequency offset (CFO) and symbol timing offset (STO). In this paper, a low-complexity preamble-based joint CFO and STO technique is presented. It is based on a relatively long preamble in order to improve the CFO estimation performance as well as avoid interference coming from the data following this preamble. After CFO and STO correction, the preamble can be reused to estimate the channel. Unlike most current techniques, the CFO and STO estimation occurs in the frequency domain. This allows for a low-complexity estimation with respect to time-domain techniques and, as will be shown by simulations, provide even better performance in a reasonable range. The drawback however is that the estimation range is shorter. Specifically, for large STOs (and to a smaller extent large CFOs), the performance decreases below time-domain estimations. Two versions of the STO estimation technique will be presented, the second one being an approximation of the first one, making it less complex yet also less precise. The performance is assessed by means of computer simulations, testing for both large and small STOs, and compared with existing techniques.

  1. Khater method for nonlinear Sharma Tasso-Olever (STO equation of fractional order

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sadaf Bibi

    Full Text Available In this work, we have implemented a direct method, known as Khater method to establish exact solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations of fractional order. Number of solutions provided by this method is greater than other traditional methods. Exact solutions of nonlinear fractional order Sharma Tasso-Olever (STO equation are expressed in terms of kink, travelling wave, periodic and solitary wave solutions. Modified Riemann-Liouville derivative and Fractional complex transform have been used for compatibility with fractional order sense. Solutions have been graphically simulated for understanding the physical aspects and importance of the method. A comparative discussion between our established results and the results obtained by existing ones is also presented. Our results clearly reveal that the proposed method is an effective, powerful and straightforward technique to work out new solutions of various types of differential equations of non-integer order in the fields of applied sciences and engineering.

    Full Text Available Die radiale extrakorporale Stoßwellentherapie (rESWT stellt eine alternative Behandlungsform zur Therapie der chronischen Enthesiopathien dar. Zahlreiche klinische Studien konnten die hohe Effektivität der rESWT bei fehlenden Nebenwirkungen zeigen. Neben den etablierten Indikationen Tennisellenbogen und Fersensporn konnten auch bei der Behandlung der chronischen Tendinitis calcarea der Schulter und beim Patellaspitzensyndrom gute klinische Ergebnisse erreicht werden. Als eine neue Indikation der rESWT stellt sich die Triggerpunktbehandlung bei muskulären Erkrankungen in der Orthopädie dar. Hier liegen erste Ergebnisse über erfolgreiche Anwendungen bei chronischen Kopf-, Nacken- und LWS-Schmerzen vor. Auch wenn zahlreiche klinische Studien einen erfolgreichen Einsatz der rESWT zeigen konnten, bleibt die Methode bis heute ohne Wirksamkeitsnachweis. Fehlende klinisch relevante Nebenwirkungen bei guten Ergebnissen lassen den Einsatz der rESWT sinnvoll erscheinen. Es bleibt aber die Notwendigkeit, hochwertige Studien durchzuführen, um den Stellenwert der rESWT im klinischen Einsatz beurteilen zu können. Unter Verwendung der radialen Applikationstechnik können Stoßwellen bis zu einer Energieflußdichte von 0,16 mJ/mm2 erreicht werden.

  3. Preparation and X-Ray standing wave measurements of STO/LAO films

    The formation of a quasi-2dimensional electron gas at the interface of SrTiO{sub 3} (STO) and LaAlO{sub 3} (LAO) attracted considerable attention in recent years. A X-ray standing wave (XSW) and X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) experiment is expected to help elucidate details of the electronic and atomic structure at the interface. Samples of high crystallographic quality are needed for these experiments. Samples were grown on (001) oriented STO single crystal substrates. TiO{sub 2} termination was obtained by standard methods. The thin films were deposited in a UHV compatible pulsed laser deposition (PLD) chamber using a UV laser ({lambda}=248 nm) at sample temperatures of 750 - 820 C in an oxygen atmosphere of 5.10{sup -5} mbar. For samples held at elevated temperatures for longer times (tempering and/or slow cooling rate) steps were found to bunch by atomic force microscopy (AFM). This is indicative on a significant surface diffusivity at these temperatures. Faster cooling times (1-1.5 h) resulted in smooth surfaces with unit cell height steps. AFM and reflectivity data are in reasonable agreement. For even higher cooling rates powder rings prove that parts of the film are badly oriented. Diffraction and XSW experiments indicate the formation of fully strained films.

    The discovery of an electron gas at the interface between the two band insulators LaAlO{sub 3} (LAO) and SrTiO{sub 3} (STO) has initiated a huge effort to study this interface in detail. Later on other interesting properties such as induced ferromagnetism and superconductivity have been reported which make the LAO/STO interface a model system to study the fundamental physics of strongly correlated electronic system and also a candidate for future multifunctional oxide electronics. A reproducible nano-patterning technique is required to develop this unique interface into useful technologies. Here we present a reliable technique to physically pattern the quasi-two-dimensional electron gas (q2DEG) down to lateral dimensions as small as 100nm while maintaining its conducting properties. The fully industry compatible process uses electron beam lithography in combination with reactive ion etching. Temperature dependent transport properties of patterned Hall bars of various widths show a small size dependence of conductivity. The deviation can be explained by a narrow lateral depletion region.

    Properties of solid oxide fuel cell, catalysts etc. is dependent on the distribution and transport behavior of oxygen ions. In this study, we observe the dynamics of vacancy ordering in LaCoO3/SrTiO3 (LCO/STO) superlattice and LCO films using high angle annular dark field and annular bright field (ABF) STEM. Vo ordering was directly observed by tracking interatomic spacings, withs nucleation, propagation and interaction of different Vo nuclei demonstrated. Moreover, ABF images show that on 1-D (110) vacancy channels form in the depleted layers.In the case for superlattice, very small contribution of vacancy injection was observed. When this approach is applied to 15 u.c. LCO film, however, a sequence of different phases is observed, starting from disordered perovskite LaCoO3-x to a brownmillerite La3Co3O8-x to eventually brownmillerite La2Co2O5-x. Kinetics of the ordering and vacancy injection, as well as implications for beam-driven phase-transformation at an atomic scale, will be discussed.

    To investigate the effect of herba schizonepetae volatile oil (STO) on the activity of 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO), so as to elucidate its mechanisms of anti-inflammatory action which is related to the arachidonic acid (AA) metabolism. Thoracic cavity leukocytes from the pleurisy model rat induced by injecting 1%-carrageenan into the pleural cavity were collected. Then 0. 4 mL cell suspension including 2 x 10(7) cells per millilitre were used as the reaction system in vitro. STO in different concentrations (final concentration 0.011, 0.022, 0.043, 0.087, 0.179, 0.255, 0.364 g x L(-1)), zileuton (final concentration 0.625 x 10(-3) g x L(-1)), and DMSO in the same volume were added into the reaction tube respectively. The reaction tubes were incubated at 37 degrees C for 20 min and CaCl2 (final concentration 2 mmol x L(-1)), MgCl2 (final concentration 0.5 mmol x L(-1)), exogenous AA (final concentration 200 micromol x L(-1)) and A23187 (final concentration 5 micromol x L(-1)) were added in turns during this period. The reaction tubes were mixed and continuously incubated at 37 degrees C for 30 min. After terminating reaction by adding methanol, the metabolites of 5-LO, leukotriene B4 (LTB4) and 5-hydroxy-6, 8, 11, 14-eicosatetraenoic acid (5-HETE), were extracted, separated and detected by means of RP-HPLC. Compared with control group, STO significantly inhibited the biosynthesis of LTB4 and 5-HETE at final concentration between 0. 022 g x L(-1) and 0.364 g x L(-1) (P thoracic cavity leukocytes in a dose-dependent manner in vitro. It is suggested that the mechanism of anti-inflammatory action of STO is related to its inhibiting the activity of 5-LO and decreasing the level of major inflammatory mediators LTB4.

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available According to current critical care management guidelines, the overall hemodynamic optimization process seeks to restore macrocirculatory oxygenation, pressure, and flow variables. However, there is increasing evidence demonstrating that, despite normalization of these global parameters, microcirculatory and regional perfusion alterations might occur, and persistence of these alterations has been associated with worse prognosis. Such observations have led to great interest in testing new technologies capable of evaluating the microcirculation. Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS measures tissue oxygen saturation (StO2 and has been proposed as a noninvasive system for monitoring regional circulation. The present review aims to summarize the existing evidence on NIRS and its potential clinical utility in different scenarios of critically ill patients.

    Niobium doped SrTiO{sub 3} is a superconductor, with the lowest charge carrier density among all superconductors. It shows a dome in the transition temperature as a function of doping concentration with a maximum T{sub c} ∼ 0.3 K. The superconducting dome may originate from the different bands being occupied depending on the doping level. The low energy scales of the system, as indicated by the low T{sub c} are within the GHz-regime. Therefore microwave measurements are a powerful technique to reveal the electronic properties of these superconductors. We preformed microwave measurements on Nb:STO of different doping levels in a dilution refrigerator, using superconducting stripline resonators. Measurements were done in a temperature and frequency range from 40-400 mK and 1-20 GHz, covering the normal and superconducting states. For comparison we also measured the temperature dependence of the surface impedance of superconducting titanium (T{sub c} ∼ 0.5 K), which can be well described by the Mattis-Bardeen equations with a ratio (2Δ)/(k{sub B}T{sub c}) = 3.56. Therefore titanium is an ideal reference sample representing a conventional BCS-superconductor.

    Research has shown that treatments that solely addressed intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetration were not very effective in reducing IPV, possibly due to neglecting individual differences between IPV perpetrators. A large proportion of IPV perpetrators is diagnosed with co-occurring substance use disorders and it has been demonstrated that successful treatment of alcohol dependence among alcohol dependent IPV perpetrators also led to less IPV. The current study investigated the relative effectiveness of Integrated treatment for Substance abuse and Partner violence (I-StoP) to cognitive behavioral treatment addressing substance use disorders including only one session addressing partner violence (CBT-SUD+) among patients in substance abuse treatment who repeatedly committed IPV. Substance use and IPV perpetration were primary outcome measures. Patients who entered substance abuse treatment were screened for IPV. Patients who disclosed at least 7 acts of physical IPV in the past year (N = 52) were randomly assigned to either I-StoP or CBT-SUD+. Patients in both conditions received 16 treatment sessions. Substance use and IPV perpetration were assessed at pretreatment, halfway treatment and posttreatment in blocks of 8 weeks. Both completers and intention-to-treat (ITT) analyses were performed. Patients (completers and ITT) in both conditions significantly improved regarding substance use and IPV perpetration at posttreatment compared with pretreatment. There were no differences in outcome between conditions. Completers in both conditions almost fully abstained from IPV in 8 weeks before the end of treatment. Both I-StoP and CBT-SUD+ were effective in reducing substance use and IPV perpetration among patients in substance abuse treatment who repeatedly committed IPV and self-disclosed IPV perpetration. Since it is more cost and time-effective to implement CBT-SUD+ than I-StoP, it is suggested to treat IPV perpetrators in substance abuse treatment with CBT-SUD+.

    Thin films of ferromagnetic Y(Ni0.5Mn0.5)O3 (YNMO) perovskite were grown on different SrTiO3 (STO) substrate orientations [i.e. (0 0 1), (1 1 0) and (1 1 1)] by means of pulsed laser deposition (PLD) and their morphological and functional properties were studied and characterized. Optimal deposition parameters were identified and their individual influence on the quality of the films was also addressed. Films showed a single out-of-plane orientation in all the substrate scenarios, while the in-plane texture in STO(0 0 1) and STO(1 1 1) show two and three in plane domains, respectively. Growth mechanism and morphology were studied by HRTEM and AFM. As a result, a clear 3D growth mechanism was identified and a direct correlation between the two in-plane crystalline domains on the surface morphology of the sample was observed. Magnetic response of the films was investigated as a function of their crystalline properties. The films were found to have a paramagnetic to ferromagnetic transition around 90 K consistent with their bulk counterparts. Finally, the discrepancies on the epitaxial growth between YMnO3 (YMO) and YMNO thin films were clarified and tabulated, giving a clear picture of the effect of Ni substitution in the epitaxial and crystalline properties of manganites of this family.

  19. Transpeptidase activity of penicillin-binding protein SpoVD in peptidoglycan synthesis conditionally depends on the disulfide reductase StoA.

    Endospore cortex peptidoglycan synthesis is not required for bacterial growth but essential for endospore heat resistance. It therefore constitutes an amenable system for research on peptidoglycan biogenesis. The Bacillus subtilis sporulation-specific class B penicillin-binding protein (PBP) SpoVD and many homologous PBPs contain two conserved cysteine residues of unknown function in the transpeptidase domain - one as residue x in the SxN catalytic site motif and the other in a flexible loop near the catalytic site. A disulfide bond between these residues blocks the function of SpoVD in cortex synthesis. With a combination of experiments with purified proteins and B. subtilis mutant cells, it was shown that in active SpoVD the two cysteine residues most probably interact by hydrogen bonding and that this is important for peptidoglycan synthesis in vivo. It was furthermore demonstrated that the sporulation-specific thiol-disulfide oxidoreductase StoA reduces SpoVD and that requirement of StoA for cortex synthesis can be suppressed by two completely different types of structural alterations in SpoVD. It is concluded that StoA plays a critical role mainly during maturation of SpoVD in the forespore outer membrane. The findings advance our understanding of essential PBPs and redox control of extra-cytoplasmic protein disulfides in bacterial cells. © 2017 The Authors.

  5. The role of landslides in downslope transport of caprock-derived boulders in sedimentary tablelands, Stołowe Mts, SW Poland

    Escarpment slopes in sedimentary tablelands are often mantled by extensive boulder blankets. While lithology shows beyond doubt that caprock is the source of boulders, the processes involved in boulder movement and their distribution patterns are rarely examined. In this paper we investigate the role of landslides initiated within middle and lower escarpment slopes in redistributing boulder covers, on the example of the Stołowe Mountains in SW Poland. Quartz sandstones form caprock and give rise to precipitous, albeit rather low (30 m high at most, typically 10-15 m) uppermost slope sections, and are the source of boulders which occur at distances even 1 km away from the caprock, on the nearly flat footslope. Sedimentary series beneath caprock include fine-grained rocks such as mudstones, claystone and calcareous sandstones. Geomorphological mapping and geomorphometric analysis of a high-resolution DEM allowed us to identify landform patterns interpreted as resulting from landslides, both rotational and translational. The latter produced distinctive tread-and-riser topography, with risers up to 10 m high. Results of geophysical prospecting using Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT) confirm the presence of allochthonous, sandstone-derived upper layer that wedges out downslope and indicate resistivity contrasts at depth of 5-15 m, interpreted as basal boundaries of landslide material. Sandstone boulders rafted on top of slid masses and reached very distant footslope settings. The primary role of landsliding consists of transporting allochthonous boulders further than would be possible otherwise and accumulating boulders in clusters and linear belts across the slope, notably on risers.

    Full Text Available Objective: To validate the EORTC QLQ-STO22 for measuring quality of life in patients with gastric cancer in Colombia. Method: Factor analysis (exploratory and confirmatory was used to evaluate content validity. Concurrent validity was evaluated measuring the correlation between QLQ-STO22 and FACIT-Ga. Cronbach’s alpha was used to evaluate internal consistency. Test-retest reliability was measured using the Lin concordance-correlation coefficient. Sensitivity to change was evaluated comparing the medians pre-and post-treatment. Results: The QLQ-STO22 was responded by 442 patients with diagnostic of gastric cancer. Exploratory factor analysis revealed five domains and confirmatory factor analysis indicated an acceptable fit to the data. A high internal consistency with Cronbach’s alpha of .897was found. Stronger correlations were found between QLQ-STO22 (general health status and FACIT-Ga (specific subscale of gastric symptoms and related problems. For test-retest reliability Lin coefficients between .656 and .851 were found. Differences between pre-and post-therapy scores were significant for some of the domains of the scale (dysphagia, restrictions on feeding. Conclusion: The EORTC QLQ-STO22 is a reliable and valid instrument for measuring quality of life in Colombian patients. Further studies aimed at evaluating sensitivity to change are recommended.

    The 'Culture and Memory of the Sto. Antonio do Morro Grande Quilombola Community' Program was included in the environmental licensing process of the Rio de Janeiro-Minas Gerais gas pipeline ('GASBEL II'), as requested by the Palmares Cultural Foundation (Fundacao Cultural Palmares), which stipulates the elaboration and implementation of this program as a condition for obtaining the installation license. To develop the program and submit it to this institution, we used methodological procedures in the form of an anthropological social research, such as: interviews with the community's older or most active residents, and a preliminary recognition of the territory and the local culture; all in order to learn more about the community's history and current needs and to identify the remaining 'quilombolas' still living in the community. Analyzing the information raised the need for guided actions designed to rescue the community's cultural memory as an ethnic group and to contribute to its process of affirmation as a Traditional Rural 'Quilombola' Community. This led to the creation of the proposed 'Culture and Memory of the Sto. Antonio do Morro Grande Quilombola Community' Program, currently being developed for the Quilombola Community located in Ressaquinha, in the State of Minas Gerais. (author)

    An assessment study is presented about energy decomposition analysis (EDA) in combination with DFT including revised dispersion correction (DFT-D3) with Slater-type orbital (STO) basis set. There has been little knowledge about the performance of the EDA + DFT-D3 concerning STOs. In this assessment such an approach was applied to calculate noncovalent interaction energies and their corresponding components. Complexes in S22 set were used to evaluate the performance of EDA in conjunction with four representative types of GGA-functionals of DFT-D3 (BP86-D3, BLYP-D3, PBE-D3 and SSB-D3) with three STO basis sets ranging in complexity from DZP, TZ2P to QZ4P. The results showed that the approach of EDA + BLYP-D3/TZ2P has a better performance not only in terms of calculating noncovalent interaction energy quantitatively but also in analyzing corresponding energy components qualitatively. This approach (EDA + BLYP-D3/TZ2P) was thus applied further to two representative large-system complexes including porphine dimers and fullerene aggregates to gain a better insight into binding characteristics.

    Full Text Available The article discusses the resident´s attitudes towards the Pilsen – European Capital of Culture 2015 project. The evaluation was made more than half a year after the end of the event. Based on the survey, whose respondents were residents of the city of Pilsen, three thematic issues were verified. They involved 1 respondents relation to culture and arts, and their possible changes due to the ECoC events in 2015, 2 the general benefits and impacts of these events and 3 the long-term legacy of the ECoC 2015 or at least of some events that the project started. Also the supply of cultural events in the city was assessed. Results clearly confirmed positive residents´ attitude towards the project. They also show benefits observed by respondents that were not seen only in the field of culture, but also in others. Most mentioned were: increased tourism, higher and better supply of culture and arts, and its greater public support. Also such benefits as changed image of the city as well as improved environment were often observed. On the other hand, most of the respondents did not believe in long term effects of the project and also their opinion was biased by their general attitude towards the culture. Overall the opinion of city residents confirms that originally identified positive view of the ECoC has not changed in time too much.

  14. Airborne geophysical survey of the catastrophic landslide at Stože, Log pod Mangrtom, as a test of an innovative approach for landslide mapping in steep alpine terrains

    Full Text Available Airborne geophysics is a promising method for investigating landslides. Here we present a case study of multisensor airborne geophysical survey at the catastrophic landslide Stože near Log pod Mangrtom in Slovenia, which was conducted in the framework of the European FP7th Project "SafeLand". Based on the survey itself and achieved results, we discuss applicability, limits, and benefits and costs of the method for investigating landslides in steep alpine terrains. Despite of several operational constraints, the airborne electromagnetic survey of the area well presented the lithological pattern and water saturation. The high resistivity regions mostly indicated drained slope scree and landslide mass, drained and loosened material of the moraine deposit in the tension zone of the landslide with present cracks and cavities. The minima of the resistivity pattern were attributed to the outcrop of marls rich in clay, to water-saturated moraine deposit above impermeable marls in the tension zone, and to water-saturated porous alluvial gravel and landslide scree along the Koritnica River. The magnetic survey proved to be inapplicable for such a small and rough area. The Potassium and Thorium maps, on the other hand, both well identified the regions of tension inside the landslide zone, outcrops of marls and dolomite, clay-rich colluvium, weathered zones along a regional tectonic fault, and alluvial deposits and deposits of debris flows, and the minima of the 137Cs clearly revealed the zones of material removal due to recent mass movements.

  15. Wpływ leków przeciwpadaczkowych na wskaźniki występowania osteoporozy

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available Osteoporoza jest uogólnioną chorobą szkieletu, charakteryzującą się niską masą kostną i zaburzeniem jego mikroarchitektury, prowadzącą do obniżenia wytrzymałości mechanicznej kości oraz zwiększenia podatności na złamania. Do istotnych czynników prowadzących do osteoporozy należy przyjmowanie leków przeciwpadaczkowych. Padaczka często ujawnia się u osób młodych i wymaga długotrwałego leczenia. Konieczne jest zatem wczesne rozpoznanie zaburzeń w metabolizmie ko- ści i wdrożenie odpowiedniej profilaktyki lub leczenia. Za standard diagnostyki osteoporozy uchodzi obecnie badanie gęstości mineralnej kości (BMD metodą podwójnej absorpcjometrii rentgenowskiej (DEXA. Jest to jednak badanie ujawniające obraz osteoporozy na tyle zaawansowanej, że jej przebieg trudno już odwrócić. Dlatego konieczne jest poszukiwanie nowych, bardziej czułych metod diagnostycznych, takich jak markery obrotu kostnego. Badania zostały przeprowadzone u 100 pacjentów w wieku 20-50 lat chorujących na padaczkę powyżej 2 lat oraz 40 osób z grupy kontrolnej dobranych odpowiednio pod wzglę- dem wieku i płci, nieobciążonych innymi schorzeniami. Pacjentom tym wykonywano DEXA oraz oznaczenia markerów obrotu kostnego w surowicy krwi: C-końcowego usieciowanego telopeptydu łańcucha alfa kolagenu typu I (CTX oraz osteokalcyny. Wnioskuje się, iż stosowanie przewlekle leków przeciwpadaczkowych w znaczący sposób wpływa na obniżenie gęstości tkanki kostnej. Zależność ta jest proporcjonalna do długości stosowania leków oraz ich rodzaju. Najbardziej czułym markerem w rozpoznawaniu zaburzeń metabolizmu kostnego u pacjentów leczonych AED poniżej 6 lat jest białko CTX, zaś u osób leczonych dłużej niż 6 lat – DEXA. Największe zmiany tkanki kostnej stwierdzono u pacjentów leczonych fenytoiną.

  18. Spontaneous excitation patterns computed for axons with injury-like impairments of sodium channels and Na/K pumps.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Na Yu

    Full Text Available In injured neurons, "leaky" voltage-gated sodium channels (Nav underlie dysfunctional excitability that ranges from spontaneous subthreshold oscillations (STO, to ectopic (sometimes paroxysmal excitation, to depolarizing block. In recombinant systems, mechanical injury to Nav1.6-rich membranes causes cytoplasmic Na(+-loading and "Nav-CLS", i.e., coupled left-(hyperpolarizing-shift of Nav activation and availability. Metabolic injury of hippocampal neurons (epileptic discharge results in comparable impairment: left-shifted activation and availability and hence left-shifted I(Na-window. A recent computation study revealed that CLS-based I(Na-window left-shift dissipates ion gradients and impairs excitability. Here, via dynamical analyses, we focus on sustained excitability patterns in mildly damaged nodes, in particular with more realistic Gaussian-distributed Nav-CLS to mimic "smeared" injury intensity. Since our interest is axons that might survive injury, pumps (sine qua non for live axons are included. In some simulations, pump efficacy and system volumes are varied. Impacts of current noise inputs are also characterized. The diverse modes of spontaneous rhythmic activity evident in these scenarios are studied using bifurcation analysis. For "mild CLS injury", a prominent feature is slow pump/leak-mediated E(Ion oscillations. These slow oscillations yield dynamic firing thresholds that underlie complex voltage STO and bursting behaviors. Thus, Nav-CLS, a biophysically justified mode of injury, in parallel with functioning pumps, robustly engenders an emergent slow process that triggers a plethora of pathological excitability patterns. This minimalist "device" could have physiological analogs. At first nodes of Ranvier and at nociceptors, e.g., localized lipid-tuning that modulated Nav midpoints could produce Nav-CLS, as could co-expression of appropriately differing Nav isoforms.

    Full Text Available Witamina D jest powszechnie znana ze swojej roli w gospodarce wapniowo-fosforanowej, ale wzrastająca ilość danych wskazuje na jej działania plejotropowe. Zaobserwowano pozytywną korelację między niedoborem witaminy D a występowaniem chorób autoimmunologicznych, w tym stwardnienia rozsianego, reumatoidalnego zapalenia stawów, tocznia rumieniowatego układowego itp. Receptory witaminy D są obecne w szeregu tkanek i narządów, w tym w kościach, mięśniach, narządach rozrodczych, sercu, mózgu oraz w obrębie układu odporno- ściowego. Coraz lepiej poznawane działanie immunomodulujące witaminy D obejmuje wpływ zarówno na mechanizmy odporności wrodzonej, jak i adaptacyjnej, poprzez hamowanie proliferacji i cytotoksyczności limfocytów T, promowanie różnicowania limfocytów T regulatorowych oraz modulowanie działania makrofagów i komórek dendrytycznych. Stwardnienie rozsiane (łac. sclerosis multiplex, SM jest chorobą autoimmunologiczną ośrodkowego układu nerwowego spowodowaną przez skomplikowane i w dużej mierze nieznane interakcje między predyspozycjami genetycznymi i czynnikami środowiskowymi. Badania epidemiologiczne wskazują, że ekspozycja na promieniowanie słoneczne i związany z nią poziom witaminy D są ważnymi czynnikami mogącymi wyjaśniać zróżnicowanie geograficzne częstości zachorowań na SM. Wyniki niektórych wstępnych obserwacji sugerują, że suplementacja witaminy D może zmniejszać ryzyko zachorowania na SM oraz modulować przebieg choroby i zmniejszać częstość jej nawrotów u pacjentów z rzutowo-remisyjną postacią SM. Wyniki te skłoniły do podjęcia prób włączenia witaminy D jako składnika wspomagającego terapię SM. Obserwacje te wymagają dalszego potwierdzenia i badań klinicznych.

  20. Public perception and stakeholder involvement in the crisis management of sediment-related disasters and their mitigation: the case of the Stože debris flow in NW Slovenia.

    2011-04-01

    Sediments can pose a threat to humans not only when these deposits are polluted but also due to their large quantities. This physical aspect of sediments as a risk will be shown on a case study of a sediment-related disaster that occurred in the mountainous part of Slovenia, Central Europe in 2000. In November 2000, after a long wet period a large debris landslide had been triggered on the Stože slope and stopped in the channel of the Mangart creek. Such an event took the majority of local inhabitants and emergency staff by surprise. Nevertheless, they had just organized the first mitigation measures when, after 35 hours, they were surprised by an even larger debrisflowinitiated as the second phase of the same mass movement event. Within a few minutes, the wet debris flow had devastated the alpine valley of the Koritnica River and killed 7 people in the village of Log pod Mangartom. This paper deals with crisis management and first mitigation measures under this very tense situation of searching for dead bodies. The uncertainty about possible new debris flows drove all inhabitants out of the village by a decision of the civil protection unit, and also other activities of the emergency relief units were overshadowed by the 7 victims. One of the main problems and challenges at the same time was the over 700,000 m³ of wet debris flow deposits in the area of the village of Log pod Mangartom within the Triglav National park, which posed a direct threat of flooding during the first heavy rainfalls in spring 2001, and which were about to be removed to make place for future debris flows. The understanding about what really happened or about the immediate triggering factors was different among the professionals in charge for relief action and for preparing a final remediation plan. The first phase during and immediately after the disaster (relief intervention of emergency units especially those for civil protection) can be described as Concern-Driven Crisis Management or

    Full Text Available Obecnie dużą nadzieję wiąże się z indywidualizacją leczenia chorych na reumatoidalne zapalenie stawów (RZS. Trwają poszukiwania markerów biochemicznych i klinicznych, dzięki którym można by przewidzieć dobrą odpowiedź na leczenie metotreksatem (MTX. Oprócz czynników klinicznych pomocna w jej ustaleniu może być predyspozycja genetyczna. Polimorfizm genów biorących udział w metabolizmie MTX może wpływać na jego skuteczność i częstość występowania działań niepożądanych. Badania farmakogenetyczne mogą się przyczynić do skuteczniejszej indywidualizacji leczenia chorych na RZS. W pracy określono znaczenie polimorfizmów genów reduktazy metylenotetrahydrofolianowej MTHFR C677T i A1298C na efektywność terapii MTX u chorych na RZS. Obecność określonych polimorfizmów genowych związanych z możliwością wystąpienia działań niepożądanych powinna być związana ze szczególnie wnikliwą oceną chorych.

  4. Psylocybina jako alternatywny lek dla osób cierpiących na depresję

    Karolina Dydak

    2016-09-01

    Full Text Available Psylocybina jest substancją psychodysleptyczną pochodzenia naturalnego, występuje w grzybach rodzaju Psilocybe. Psychodysleptyki są środkami psychoaktywnymi, które silnie wpływają na percepcję, nastrój i procesy poznawcze człowieka. Psychodeliczne działanie psylocybiny opiera się na pobudzaniu receptorów serotoninergicznych, co prowadzi do wzrostu stężenia serotoniny w mózgu oraz przyczynia się do intensyfikacji czynności sensomotorycznych i percepcyjnych. Skutkiem działania psylocybiny na ludzki organizm są różne zmiany w zachowaniu – często stany euforyczne, rozweselenie, poczucie lekkości i jedności z otaczającym światem. Dodatkowo psylocybina powoduje modyfikację percepcji nieudającą rzeczywistości, często błędnie określaną mianem halucynacji. Działanie psylocybiny można porównać do działania LSD (dietyloamidu kwasu D-lizergowego, jednak wielokrotnie osłabionego. Psylocybina znajduje się w wykazie środków odurzających w grupie I-P, czyli substancji bez zastosowań medycznych i o dużym potencjale nadużywania, które są wyłączone z obrotu farmaceutycznego i mogą być używane wyłącznie do badań naukowych. Jednak właściwości psylocybiny pozwalają rozważać jej wykorzystanie w lecznictwie. Do schorzeń, w których zastosowanie tej substancji przynosi wymierne efekty, należy depresja. Badania prowadzone na ochotnikach dowodzą, że psylocybina może być dobrą alternatywą dla dostępnych obecnie leków przeciwdepresyjnych – wykazano jej skuteczność i potwierdzono bardzo niską toksyczność.

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Leczenie stwardnienia rozsianego interferonem beta wiąże się z ryzykiem rozwoju odpowiedzi immunologicznej przeciw temu białku. Polega ona na produkcji przeciwciał wiążących lub neutralizujących interferon beta. Przeciwciała wiążące są wykrywalne u większości leczonych i nie wpływają na skuteczność terapii. Jednocześnie duże badania kliniczne dostarczają dowodów na to, że przeciwciała neutralizujące zmniejszają, a w wysokich mianach znoszą działanie interferonu, co przekłada się na wzrost częstości rzutów oraz liczby nowych i wzmacniających się ognisk w badaniach rezonansu magnetycznego, a nawet przyspieszenie postępu niesprawności. Częstość występowania przeciwciał neutralizujących zależy od preparatu i drogi podania oraz dotyczy od 2 do 42% osób leczonych; maksimum osiąga między 6. a 24. miesiącem terapii. Przeciwciała neutralizujące mogą być obecne przejściowo (po ich zaniknięciu skuteczność interferonu powraca do poziomu wyjściowego, ale wysokie miano zapowiada ich wieloletnie utrzymywanie się, nawet po odstawieniu leku. Opracowano różne sposoby wykrywania przeciwciał neutralizujących – od metod wykorzystujących efekt cytopatyczny do tych opartych na indukcji genu reporterowego lucyferazy. Poszukuje się wiarygodnych markerów aktywności interferonu beta in vivo, które mogłyby uzupełniać oznaczenie przeciwciał. Przez wiele lat zagadnieniu przeciwciał przeciwinterferonowych towarzyszyły kontrowersje, które wynikały z trudności metodologicznych w badaniu ich znaczenia klinicznego. Obecnie, w świetle zgromadzonych danych, eksperci europejscy zgodnie zalecają powtarzane przesiewowe badanie miana przeciwciał neutralizujących u chorych leczonych interferonem i uwzględnienie wyników przy podejmowaniu decyzji terapeutycznych.

  6. Wpływ głębokiej stymulacji mózgu na funkcje poznawcze i emocjonalne u chorych na epilepsję – przegląd badań

    Full Text Available Epilepsja to zespół zaburzeń neurologicznych, na który – według danych Światowej Organizacji Zdrowia – cierpi niemal 50 milionów osób na świecie. Oprócz napadów padaczkowych o różnym przebiegu chorzy bardzo często doświadczają zaburzeń poznawczych i zaburzeń nastroju, którym niekiedy towarzyszą myśli samobójcze. Choroba znacznie obniża poczucie jakości życia pacjentów i utrudnia im wykonywanie codziennych czynności. Niemal 40% chorych cierpi na lekooporną postać epilepsji, a wielu ma także przeciwwskazania do poddania się zabiegom chirurgicznym lub pomimo przebytego zabiegu doświadcza napadów. Sposobem leczenia, który można zaproponować tym pacjentom, jest głęboka stymulacja mózgu. W 2010 roku stymulacja jądra przedniego wzgórza została zaakceptowana w Europie jako metoda wspomagająca w leczeniu napadów częściowych u dorosłych chorych z epilepsją. Wciąż jednak trwają badania nad bezpieczeństwem i efektywnością tej metody. Obiektem badań jest też stymulacja innych struktur, ponieważ nadal poszukuje się najlepszego celu stereotaktycznego w leczeniu padaczki. Zabieg polega na stymulacji głęboko położonych struktur mózgu i jest metodą mniej inwazyjną niż metody chirurgiczne. Wiele dotychczasowych badań wskazuje na skuteczność głębokiej stymulacji mózgu w redukowaniu częstości napadów padaczkowych. Ze względu na fakt, iż stymulowane struktury w większości należą do układu limbicznego, w badaniach analizujących skuteczność zabiegu coraz częściej zwraca się uwagę na wpływ stymulacji na funkcje poznawcze i emocjonalne chorych. Niniejszy artykuł ma na celu przegląd badań dotyczących efektywności zabiegu i wpływu głębokiej stymulacji mózgu na funkcje neuropsychiatryczne u osób z epilepsją, zaakcentowanie zarówno pożądanych, jak i ubocznych efektów zabiegu oraz zwrócenie uwagi na znaczenie badania neuropsychologicznego w

    Full Text Available Wśród nowotworowych przyczyn zgonów w Polsce rak stercza zajmuje trzecie miejsce, po raku płuc i żołądka. W Stanach Zjednoczonych jest na pierwszym miejscu. W Unii Europejskiej z powodu raka gruczołu krokowego umiera każdego roku ponad 85 000 mężczyzn. Dotyka on często mężczyzn w sile wieku, a długi i złożony proces jego leczenia negatywnie wpływa na efektywność i stabilność życiową. W początkowym stadium choroba przebiega często bezobjawowo, co powoduje, że mężczyźni nie są świadomi zagrożenia i nie podejmują czynności profilaktyczno-leczniczych. Uwzględniając wymienione zagrożenia, celowe jest podjęcie działań zmierzających do uruchomienia systemu profilaktyki, leczenia i monitorowania chorych z rakiem gruczołu krokowego, co będzie stanowić gwarancję utrzymania wymaganego poziomu stanu zdrowia. Funkcjonowanie takiego systemu oparte jest na podstawach naukowych. Jeden z jego elementów to opracowanie wskaźników (funkcji zdrowia i zachorowań pacjentów płci męskiej z uwzględnieniem ich struktury wiekowej. Realizując pracę badawczą, autorzy artykułu starali się umiejscowić podjęty problem profilaktyki i leczenia raka gruczołu krokowego na tle istniejących już osiągnięć naukowych. Dokonano pogłębionej analizy opracowań w aspekcie rozwiązań praktycznych. Zauważono, że dotyczą one dwóch zasadniczych obszarów, odnoszą się do badań podstawowych i rozwiązań aplikacyjnych.

  11. „Legalizować czy nie?” – analiza związku pomiędzy stosowaniem kanabinoli a częstością występowania i obrazem klinicznym zaburzeń psychotycznych

    Full Text Available Związek pomiędzy zażywaniem kanabinoli a występowaniem zaburzeń psychotycznych jest opisywany od dawna. Udowodniono między innymi, że kanabinole mogą wywoływać przemijające objawy pozytywne, negatywne i poznawcze psychozy u zdrowych osób oraz zaostrzać objawy lub powodować ich nawrót w przebiegu wcześniej rozpoznanych zaburzeń psychotycznych. Jednak nadal niewiele wiadomo o mechanizmach, które powodują powstawanie tych symptomów. Zgodnie z najnowszymi doniesieniami mogą one angażować układy dopaminergiczny, GABA-ergiczny i glutaminergiczny. Ponieważ tylko u części osób zażywających kanabinole rozwijają się objawy psychotyczne, prawdopodobnie substancje te nie stanowią głównego czynnika sprawczego psychozy, lecz mogą stanowić ważny czynnik ryzyka, który przyczynia się do manifestacji jej objawów. Takie wskaźniki, jak dawka, długość stosowania oraz wiek pierwszego kontaktu z kanabinolami, stanowią uznane czynniki modyfikujące przebieg psychozy, jakkolwiek mechanizm tego zjawiska pozostaje w dużym stopniu niejasny. W ostatnim czasie coraz szersze uznanie zyskują nowe hipotezy, zakładające możliwy wpływ kanabinoli na rozwój centralnego układu nerwowego. Istnieją dowody na to, że endogenny układ kanabinoidalny może odgrywać istotną rolę w takich procesach, jak neurogeneza, różnicowanie, dojrzewanie i migracja neuronów, wydłu- żanie aksonów oraz formowanie struktur gleju. Zażywanie kanabinoidów egzogennych, zaburzając działanie układu endokanabinoidalnego oraz zakłócając procesy neurorozwojowe, może stanowić mechanizm, poprzez który ekspozycja na działanie tych substancji w okresie adolescencji zwiększa ryzyko rozwoju schizofrenii lub innych utrwalonych zaburzeń psychotycznych.

    Full Text Available Wyróżnia się dwa rodzaje nadwrażliwości na kwas acetylosalicylowy (ASA: oskrzelowy i pokrzywkowy. Rodzaj pierwszy dotyczy chorych na astmę, u których ASA wywołuje napady duszności i objawy pozaoskrzelowe, takie jak wodnisty katar nosa, zaczerwienienie twarzy, szyi i klatki piersiowej, łzawienie. Opisano także obrzęk krtani, spadek ciśnienia tętniczego krwi, a nawet zgony. Pokrzywkowa postać nadwrażliwości na ASA dotyczy głównie chorych na przewlekłą pokrzywkę. ASA-astma i ASA-pokrzywka występują w każdym wieku, ale głównie dotyczą kobiet (70% badanych w wieku 30-50 lat. U części tych chorych występują cechy atopii. Charakterys­‑ tyczną cechą ASA-astmy są polipy nosa, często powiązane w przewlekłym zapaleniem zatok. Stwierdza się je u około 80% chorych na ASA-astmę. Polipy nosa mają charakter nawrotowy. Błona śluzowa nosa chorych na ASA-astmę jest nacieczona T-limfocytami, eozynofilami, komórkami tucznymi i makrofagami, większość komórek wykazuje ekspresję mRNA dla IL-5. Błona śluzowa oskrzeli również jest nacieczona eozynofilami będącymi bogatym źródłem leukotrienu C4, który prawdopodobnie bierze udział w patomechanizmie nadreaktywności na ASA. Przebieg kliniczny ASA-astmy u większości chorych jest ciężki, ale kontrolę astmy można uzyskać dzięki stosowaniu wziewnych glikokortykosteroidów i długo działających β2-agonistów. Objawy nadwrażliwości wywołuje większość niesteroidowych leków przeciwzapalnych. U chorych na astmę jest to duszność, a u chorych na pokrzywkę – wysiewy skórne. Objawy te są wywoływane przez indometacynę, kwas mefenamowy i flufenamowy, ibuprofen, fenylbutazon, naproksen, diflunisal i zomepirak. Natomiast dobrze tolerowane przez chorych na ASA-astmę są paracetamol, chlorochina, benzydamina, kwas salicylowy i dekstropropoksyfen.

    1995-07-01

    Absolute transition probabilities for lines of CR II, Na II and Sb I were determined by emission spectroscopy of laser induced plasmas. the plasma was produced focusing the emission of a pulsed Nd-Yag laser on solid samples containing the atom in study. the light arising from the plasma region was collected by and spectrometer. the detector used was a time-resolved optical multichannel analyzer (OMA III EG and G). The wavelengths of the measured transitions range from 2000 sto 4100 A. The spectral resolution of the system was 0. 2 A. The method can be used in insulators materials as Cl Na crystals and in metallic samples as Al-Cr and Sn-Sn alloys. to avoid self-absorption effects the alloys were made with low Sb or Cr content. Relative transition probabilities have been determined from measurements of emission-line intensities and were placed on an absolute scale by using, where possible, accurate experimental lifetime values form the literature or theoretical data. From these measurements, values for plasma temperature (8000-24000 K), electron densities ({approx}{approx} 10''16 cm ''-3) and self-absorption coefficients have been obtained. (Author) 56 refs.

Początkowo Poznań był dość atrakcyjnym i spokojnym miejscem pracy w porównaniu z często bombardowanym Hamburgiem – pensja bez podatku, niektóre artykuły reglamentowane w Rzeszy tu bez kartek dla urzędników niemieckich, trzy naloty alianckie. W miarę upływu wojny pogarszały się warunki życia i pracy Wery. Prawdopodobnie obawa przed cenzurą i autocenzurą sprawiły, że nie ujawniła swego stosunku do narodowego socjalizmu. Jej postawę wobec Polaków trudno uznać za wrogą. Czas wolny przeznaczała przede wszystkim na korespondencję, poszukiwanie artykułów trudnych do zdobycia w głębi Rzeszy, wysyłanie paczek ze zdobyczami lub praniem czy ubraniami do przerobienia. Rzadko bywała w kinie, kawiarni, teatrze i operze – jeśli tak, to często z powodu zimna. Dużo pisała o pogodzie, niewiele o swej pracy. Dopiero od sierpnia 1944 roku, kiedy zapanował chaos, informowała o zmianach w jej biurze i o zamykaniu oddziałów zamiejscowych.Pisane przez nią widokówki były uzupełnieniem listów do matki.

    Ceres is one of the second generation heavy ion experiments at CERN's SPS. It is dedicated to the study of electron-positron pairs in relativistic nuclear collisions. NA45 is one of the seven experiments (NA44, NA45, NA49, NA50, NA52, WA97/NA57 and WA98) involved in CERN's Heavy Ion programme which provided evidence for the existence of a new state of matter, the quark-gluon plasma. In this state, quarks, instead of being bound up into more complex particles such as protons and neutrons, are liberated and roam freely. Theory predicts that this state must have existed at about 10 microseconds after the Big Bang, before the formation of matter as we know it today.

    La0.7Sr0.3MnO3 (LSMO) is a promising material for spintronics applications due to its half-metallic nature. To successively exploit LSMO, both the magnetic anisotropy (MA) and damping need to be well understood and, ultimately, controlled. Here, we study 30 nm epitaxial LSMO thin films grown by pulsed laser deposition on TiO2 terminated (001)SrTiO3. By means of angle- and frequency dependent ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) at room temperature, we separate various contributions to the in-plane MA: i) The four-fold magnetocrystalline anisotropy is present but negligibly small. ii) The strongest contribution Buni = 4.2 mT is uniaxial with EA along [010]. While uniaxial MA in LSMO systems is commonly related to terrace formation from the substrate miscut, we find that the terrace direction and the MA symmetry axes do not correlate, indicating a different origin of the MA. By evaluating the FMR linewidth, three nonlinear magnetic damping channels due to the two-magnon scattering are found: j) The dominant four-fold contribution with maxima along axes emerges due to the crystalline defects. jj) A two-fold contribution with the maximum along [010] and jjj) a small two-fold contribution with maximum perpendicular to the terraces are identified.

    Full Text Available Szacuje się, że systemy zaopatrzenia ludności w wodę mogą pochłaniać nawet do 7% energii wykorzystywanej przez społeczeństwo. Głównym elementem odpowiedzialnym za tak duże zużycie energii elektrycznej są pompy tłoczące wodę. Zazwyczaj poprawa efektywności energetycznej pracującej pompy lub zespołu pomp, pociąga za sobą duże koszty inwestycyjne. Spojrzenie kompleksowe na funkcjonowanie całego systemu, często pozwala na zmniejszenie zużycia energii przez system bez ponoszenia dodatkowych nakładów finansowych. To jakiego rzędu będą to oszczędności zależy wyłącznie od specyfiki przedsiębiorstwa. W pracy przedstawiono analizę energetyczną wybranego miesiąca pracy ujęcia wody surowej dla Stacji Uzdatniania Wody Karolin w Olsztynie. Za wskaźnik efektywności energetycznej pracujących pomp na ujęciu przyjęto jednostkowe zużycie energii.

    Full Text Available Padaczka jest chorobą z reguły przewlekłą. Często rozpoczyna się w dzieciństwie, a niekiedy przyjmowanie leków trwa całe życie. W ostatniej dekadzie zwrócono uwagę na rolę i znaczenie homocysteiny w patogenezie niektórych jednostek neurologicznych. Najpierw udowodniono, że jej podwyższony poziom ma udział w patogenezie choroby niedokrwiennej serca, a następnie w chorobach naczyniowych mózgu, głównie w udarach niedokrwiennych, ponadto w chorobie Parkinsona, migrenie i innych. Odnotowano także, iż u chorych z padaczką pozostających na leczeniu poziom homocysteiny jest podwyż- szony. Uważa się, że może to być związane z przyjmowaniem leków indukujących cytochrom P450. Celem niniejszej pracy było oznaczenie poziomu homocysteiny u 112 pacjentów z padaczką skrytopochodną. Kryteria wykluczające stanowiły padaczka objawowa, towarzyszące choroby tarczycy, nerek, wątroby, naczyniowe choroby mózgu. Poziom homocysteiny w surowicy oznaczano metodą immunologicznej fluorescencyjnej polaryzacji. Oznaczaliśmy również poziom kwasu foliowego i witaminy B12. Średnie stężenie homocysteiny w grupie badanej było wyższe niż w grupie kontrolnej, nie odnotowano takich różnic dla kwasu foliowego i witaminy B12. W grupie naszych pacjentów pozostających na politerapii poziom homocysteiny był istotnie statystycznie wyższy w porównaniu z grupą kontrolną i pacjentów po pierwszym w życiu napadzie padaczkowym. Poziom kwasu foliowego był niższy u chorych, u których stosowano politerapię, w porównaniu z grupą kontrolną, różnicy takiej nie odnotowano, jeżeli chodzi o poziom witaminy B12.

    Full Text Available Stwardnienie rozsiane jest postępującą zapalno-demielinizacyjną chorobą ośrodkowego układu nerwowego o nieznanej etiologii, dotykającą przede wszystkim ludzi młodych i stanowiącą najczęstszą przyczynę niesprawności neurologicznej w tej grupie wiekowej. Szacuje się, że w Polsce na stwardnienie rozsiane choruje około 40 000 osób, a rocznie stwierdza się około 2000 nowych przypadków. Wskaźniki te oparte są jedynie na statystykach Narodowego Funduszu Zdrowia i nie zawierają wielu istotnych danych, m.in. na temat postaci i przebiegu choroby, stopnia niepełnosprawności, rodzaju leczenia czy jakości życia chorych. W większości krajów europejskich takie informacje są zbierane przez narodowe rejestry chorych, często funkcjonujące już od lat. Polska była pod tym względem białą plamą na mapie świata i największym państwem o tak dużej liczbie chorych, w którym nie wprowadzono żadnej bazy danych. Wzorem innych krajów w 2013 roku powołano ogólnopolski rejestr chorych na stwardnienie rozsiane, którego celem było opisanie podstawowych parametrów epidemiologicznych zebranych ze wszystkich ośrodków zajmujących się leczeniem stwardnienia rozsianego. W artykule przedstawiono założenia polskiego Rejestru Chorych ze Stwardnieniem Rozsianym (RejSM i omówiono wyniki z regionu świętokrzyskiego, który jest najbardziej zaangażowany w zbieranie danych. Na dzień 31 grudnia 2013 roku chorobowość w tym rejonie Polski określono na 109,1/100 000, a zapadalność w latach 2011–2013 – na 4,1/100 000/rok. Wskaźniki te są wyższe od dotychczas publikowanych polskich danych. Przedstawiono również wstępną analizę samooceny jakości życia pacjentów oraz ograniczenia i problemy związane z dalszym rozwojem rejestru.

  1. NA48 prototype calorimeter

    CERN Multimedia

    1990-01-01

    This is a calorimeter, a detector which measures the energy of particles. When in use, it is filled with liquid krypton at -152°C. Electrons and photons passing through interact with the krypton, creating a shower of charged particles which are collected on the copper ribbons. The ribbons are aligned to an accuracy of a tenth of a millimetre. The folding at each end allows them to be kept absolutely flat. Each shower of particles also creates a signal in scintillating material embedded in the support disks. These flashes of light are transmitted to electronics by the optical fibres along the side of the detector. They give the time at which the interaction occurred. The photo shows the calorimeter at NA48, a CERN experiment which is trying to understand the lack of anti-matter in the Universe today.

    Quando viam um cometa, os antigos gregos imaginavam uma estrela com uma vasta cabeleira. Não à toa, a palavra deriva do termo koma, que significa cabelo. Constituídos por fragmentos de gelo e gases, os cometas possuem um núcleo sólido, que pode ter vários quilômetros de diâmetro, e uma cauda que sempre aponta na direção contrária ao Sol, devido aos ventos solares. Graças à aparência de pontos luminosos em movimento (ao contrário de outros astros, que parecem estáticos), esses corpos celestes foram interpretados por diferentes povos com muito misticismo, inspirando mitos tanto de boas-novas como de maus presságios. Conheça algumas dessas histórias:

    Full Text Available Neste texto pretende-se discorrer sobre valores morais na escola e suas implicações para a formação de professores. Para tanto discutir-se-á, em primeiro lugar, e brevemente, o que são valores morais, ou éticos, e como a escola pode situar-se em relação a eles. Em seguida, serão relatadas algumas observações a respeito de valores de professores e práticas daí decorrentes. São comentados resultados de pesquisa que ilustram a transmissão de valores de forma doutrinal e a educação moral e cívica tal como realizada na ditadura militar, e, por outro lado, a posição relativista e/ou de laissez-faire que certas escolas podem adotar, metodologicamente, sobre a educação em valores. Finalmente, defender-se-á a idéia de que é necessária uma discussão sobre valores pelos diversos membros da escola e uma opção por uma metodologia para ensiná-los, seja os professores, em sua formação inicial e continuada, seja os alunos. A teoria de desenvolvimento moral de Jean Piaget será apresentada como uma referência possível para a educação em valores. Exemplos de situações escolares de conflito de valores entre direção, pais e alunos são discutidas para ilustrar como uma escola pode adotar um procedimento democrático de educação em valores, que se apresenta como um terceiro caminho possível de educação moral nas escolas, além das posições doutrinárias ou relativistas.

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available Para Hume, filosofar é uma atividade semelhante às demais ocupações humanas. A decisão que leva à atividade filosófica é menos resultado de uma argumentação teórica do que fruto de um cálculo prático, que é entendido como uma caça ou um jogo. O objetivo deste trabalho será o de mostrar que no jogo filosófico perde quem joga sério demais. A aposta na filosofia tem que passar pelo bom humor e pela diversão: uma resposta a Pascal?For Hume, philosophy is in itself neither more nor less important than other human activities. On the contrary, it can be explained from its resemblance with game and hunting. If one chooses to dedicate himself to philosophy, his decision is not the consequence of logical reasoning, but depends on practical evaluation, which has something to do with gambling. The following text tries to show that in philosophy, like in other games, the loser will be the one who plays too earnestly. The philosophical game requires good humour and some relaxation: Is this a good answer to Pascal's pari?

    Full Text Available Specyfika stwardnienia rozsianego sprawia, że rehabilitacja pacjentów cierpiących na tę chorobę jest jednym z najtrudniejszych zadań rehabilitacji neurologicznej. Liczne objawy stwardnienia rozsianego znacznie obniżają jakość życia około 40 000 chorych żyjących w Polsce. Choć rehabilitacja nie zmniejsza istotnie częstości rzutów ani nie zatrzymuje progresji choroby, to – jeśli jest odpowiednio, nowocześnie prowadzona – poprawia nie tylko obiektywne wskaźniki, lecz także subiektywne samopoczucie i samoocenę, a w rezultacie daje możliwość wytworzenia pozytywnego obrazu siebie. Potrzeby polskich chorych są duże, ale dostępność rehabilitacji (zarówno ambulatoryjnej, jak i  stacjonarnej jest wysoce niesatysfakcjonująca. W związku z tym powinno się optymalizować jakość rehabilitacji prowadzonej przez chorych samodzielnie, w warunkach domowych. Duże znaczenie mają zatem wiedza pacjenta na temat wpływu rehabilitacji na chorobę i możliwych form leczniczych, jak również świadomość skutków zaniechania tej formy leczenia. Stwardnienie rozsiane, niezależnie od postaci, prowadzi do niepełnosprawności i obniżenia jakości życia, a to ogranicza samodzielność, niesie ze sobą ryzyko utraty pracy, utrudnia samoobsługę i swobodę w zakresie aktywności dnia codziennego. Istotna staje się rola rehabilitacyjnych zespołów terapeutycznych (specjaliści neurologii i rehabilitacji plus fizjoterapeuta, które powinny istnieć w każdej poradni diagnostyki i leczenia stwardnienia rozsianego. Ustalenie przez taki zespół ubytków funkcji oraz określenie celów i planu postępowania pozwoliłyby na zmniejszanie skutków postępu choroby.

O eletrencefalograma e o pneumencefalograma revelaram alterações graves do hemisfério direito; tendo o primeiro destes exames demonstrado a existência de perturbações propagadas ao outro hemisfério. Foi praticada a hemisferectomia direita. Durante o ato cirúrgico, por exigência técnica foram extirpados, além do hemisfério cerebral, os dois terços rostrais do núcleo caudado e o núcleo amigdalóide. No pós-operatório foi intercorrência de osteomielite e meningite, medicadas com antibióticos e seqüestrectomia. Apesar da complicação pós-operatória, instalou-se progressiva melhora em relação à conduta social; diminuiu também a espasticidade no membro inferior esquerdo e não mais se repetiram as crises convulsivas. Não foram observadas modificações quanto ao rendimento intelectual e quanto aos distúrbios sensitivos que existiam antes da intervenção cirúrgica. O exame neurocular mostrou hemianopsia homônima esquerda. Êstes resultados são concordantes com os assinalados na literatura sobre o assunto.

    Full Text Available O momento nazista permanece um enigma impensado de que a cultura contemporânea continua cativa. O autor levanta a hipótese de que a persistência desse enigma e seus estragos duráveis se devem à insistência dos pensamentos político, sociológico e filosófico em construírem o nazismo à luz da metáfora hobbesiana do Leviatã. Propõe retomar a questão do nazismo sob a perspectiva do Behemoth, antônimo do Leviatã. Para tanto, sugere a necessidade de retornar a Freud e à psicanálise, balizas de um possível novo pensamento do político que escrutine a destrutividade nazista. Propõe ainda sondar as homologias entre nazismo, corjas e máfias, com base na figura da " heroicização da violência" que lhes seria comum. E avança um modelo " econômico" : a quimera, suscetível de capturar o caráter heterotópico e heterocrônico de sua construção criminosa.The paths of Behemoth. The Nazi moment remains as the thoughtless enigma of which contemporary culture is still captive. The author raises the hypothesis where the persistency of this enigma and its durable damages are due to the insistence of the political, social and philosophical thoughts in building the Nazism at the view of the Hobbesian metaphor of Leviathan. It is here proposed to resume the Nazism matter under Behemoth's perspective, antonym to Leviathan. For such, it is suggested a necessity to look back at Freud and the psychoanalysis, structured by a possible new political thought which scrutinizes the destructivity of the Nazism. It is also here proposed to gaze at the homologies between Nazism, mafias and gangs, with a base in the figure of " violence as a heroically act" that are their common ground. The author also advances an economical model: the chimera susceptible to capture the heterotopic and heterochronic character of its criminal construction.

    Full Text Available Metotreksat (MTX jest nadal złotym standardem w leczeniu RZS i jest stosowany na świecie u ponad 0,5 mln chorych na RZS. Obecnie dużą nadzieję wiąże się z indywidualizacją leczenia chorych na RZS. Oprócz czynników klinicznych pomocna w jej ustaleniu może być predyspozycja genetyczna. Polimorfizm genów biorących udział w metabolizmie MTX może wpływać na jego skuteczność i częstość występowania działań niepożądanych. Badania farmakogenetyczne mogą się przyczynić do skuteczniejszej indywidualizacji leczenia chorych na RZS. Istnieje wiele potencjalnych enzymów i białek transportujących występujących w postaciach polimorficznych, które biorą udział w transporcie MTX do komórki, jego metabolizmie i wydalaniu z komórki. Obecnie próbuje się określić przydatność badań polimorfizmów genów do oceny skuteczności leczenia i występowania potencjalnych działań niepożądanych biorąc pod uwagę analizę farmakoekonomiczną. Istnieje szansa, że w przyszłości dzięki indywidualizacji terapii będziemy mogli dostosowywać leczenie (rodzaj leku, dawka leku, droga podania do danego molekularnego podtypu choroby oraz genotypu chorego. Chorzy, u których występują niekorzystne polimorfizmy mogliby być leczeni innymi LMPCH lub już od początku wdrożono by terapię kombinowaną, a w razie niepowodzenia leczenie biologiczne. Chorzy z określonym typem polimorfizmu wymagaliby częstszej kontroli reumatologicznej oceniającej skuteczność i bezpieczeństwo leczenia. Należy jednak pamiętać, że predyspozycje genetyczne są tylko jednymi z czynników wpływających na różnice podczas farmakoterapii u poszczególnych chorych.

    Full Text Available Mury licowe podlegają ciągłym wpływom czynników pochodzących z otaczającego środowiska. Oddziaływania te  przyczyniają się do destrukcji materiału, obniżając ich trwałość użytkową. Zaprawy należą do grupy materiałów aktywnych chemicznie, podlegającym korozji zewnętrznej i wewnętrznej. Do korozji zewnętrznej zalicza się wszystkie te przypadki, w których zaprawa narażona jest na niekorzystne czynniki zewnętrzne (gazowy CO2, kwaśne deszcze, zmienne temperatury przekraczające często punkt 0̊C, roztwory rozpuszczalnych soli mineralnych pochodzących z otaczających elementów. Przyczyną korozji wewnętrznej są same składniki zapraw. Wymienione czynniki istotnie wpływają na zmiany mikrostruktury zapraw. Proces ten jest rozłożony w czasie. Analizę przeprowadzono na stanowisku poligonowym zlokalizowanym na terenie Uniwersytetu Technologiczno – Przyrodniczego w Bydgoszczy. Do analizy wytypowano 3 mury licowe na różnych zaprawach. W kolejnych latach funkcjonowania murów obserwowano pojawianie się wykwitów o różnym zakresie i nasileniu. Zebrane informacje pozwoliły na ustalenie obszaru o najwyższej intensywności wykwitów. Po dziesięciu latach, dla każdego muru, z wytypowanego miejsca pobrano próbki zapraw, dla których zbadano mikrostrukturę metodą porozymetrii rtęciowej. Uzyskane wyniki posłużyły do oceny zmian udziału mezo- i makro-porów w badanych zaprawach powstałych w wyniku oddziaływania środowiska zewnętrznego.

    The image shows the new rare Kaon decay experiment at CERN, called NA62. The NA62 experiment is 270 metres long and includes a 120-metre-long vacuum tank, shown here, housing several of the particle detectors. (Note: the experiment axis is a straight line, the curving of the tank is an optical effect of the photo.) Kaons are particles that decay into lighter elementary particles. The kaon decay processes are mostly well known, except for some very rare decay modes. For example, NA62 is investigating a rare decay predicted by the Standard Model in which a kaon decays into one pion and two neutrinos. This process occurs only once every 10 billion decays. The understanding of such ultra-rare decays are of great importance because they test the Standard Model in energy ranges not accessible by direct measurements. They are therefore complementary to the measurements at the LHC. ultra high definition on demand (photolab@cern.ch).

Para fins comparativos, em 17 dêles foi feito na mesma ocasião o estudo do proteinograma do sôro. A sintomatologia neurológica foi avaliada de modo semiquantitativo. Foi verificado aumento discreto da concentração protêica total do LCR em 7 casos (32%. O perfil eletroforético (eletroforese em papel das proteínas foi do tipo encontrado no LCR normal, em todos os casos. Discretas alterações quanto ao teor de uma ou outra fração foram registradas. O perfil protêico não apresentava particularidades relacionadas ao fato de ser normal ou aumentada a concentração protêica total do LCR. A relação entre a percentagem no LCR e no sôro de cada uma das frações mostrou alterações do balanço protêico entre LCR e sôro. As alterações eram devidas a modificações globulínicas do proteinograma do sôro. Não foi encontrada correlação significativa entre a concentração protêica do LCR e a do sôro. O resultado da avaliação semiquantitativa da sintomatologia neurológica de cada caso foi correlacionado à concentração protêica total e de cada fração protêica do LCR. Não foi demonstrada correlação estatisticamente significante entre os dados analisados. Entretanto, os valôres obtidos sugerem: correlação da proteinorraquia total com a sintomatologia neurológica; dentre as frações protêicas, maior participação da globulina nessa correlação. Em vista dos resultados obtidos para os casos estudados, os autores consideram que o aumento da proteinorraquia total na neuropatia diabética não pode ser pôsto na dependência de alterações peculiares a uma ou outra fração protêca do LCR. Igualmente, não depende de modificações do proteinograma do sôro e não pode ser explicado em função direta da intensidade do quadro neurológico.

    Full Text Available W artykule prezentowano źródła zanieczyszczenia i zagrożenia gleby w województwie podkarpackim. Czynnikami wpływającymi na stan chemiczny gleb, jest stopień uprzemysłowienia terenu, natężenie ruchu drogowego, gęstość zaludnienia, struktura powierzchniowa miasta, gospodarka odpadowo-ściekowa, mikroklimat oraz rodzaj i gatunek gleb. Zakłady przemysłowe oraz komunikacja emitują najwięcej pyłowych i gazowych zanieczyszczeń powietrza atmosferycznego. Emisja zanieczyszczeń gazowych i pyłowych nie wywołuje bezpośrednio widocznych skutków w zmianach profilów glebowych, ale ich pośrednie oddziaływanie może mieć duży wkład. W województwie podkarpackim występują liczne zakłady przemysłowe, które są potencjalnym zagrożeniem dla środowiska glebowego. Największa ilość zanieczyszczeń dostaje się do gleby wraz ze ściekami, pyłami, gazami oraz ciekłymi i stałymi odpadami, generowanymi przez przemysł. Zanieczyszczenia te zawierają głównie metale ciężkie czy sole. Poważnym źródłem zanieczyszczeń gleb mogą być występujące na Podkarpaciu zakłady dużego oraz zwiększonego ryzyka, w których przerabiane są w instalacjach produkcyjnych ogromne ilości substancji niebezpiecznych. Zagrożeniem jest także magazynowanie substancji toksycznych oraz ich transport. W artykule pokazana zawartość metali ciężkich w glebach Podkarpacia w 2011-2014 latach, zawartość gazów i pyłów emitowanych z zakładów przemysłowych, ilość gruntów zdegradowanych oraz zdewastowanych na Podkarpaciu. Pokazano, że stan gleby w województwie podkarpackim jest na ogół dobry. Jednak występują tu gleby zakwaszone, wymagające nieraz natychmiastowego wapnowania, oraz gleby zanieczyszczone substancjami chemicznymi. Grunty zdewastowane oraz degradowane powstawały głównie w wyniku działalności górnictwa oraz kopalnictwa surowców. W województwie podkarpackim dotyczyło to głównie gruntów z teren

    1997-01-01

    We investigate the desorption of Na atoms from large Na clusters deposited on dielectric surfaces. High-resolution translational energy distributions of the desorbing atoms are determined by three independent methods, two-photon laser-induced fluorescence, as well as single-photon and resonance......-enhanced two-photon ionization techniques. Upon variation of surface temperature and for different substrates (mica vs lithium fluoride) clear non-Maxwellian time-of-flight distributions are observed with a cos θ angular dependence and most probable kinetic energies below that expected of atoms desorbing from...... atoms are scattered by surface vibrations. Recent experiments providing time constants for the decay of the optical excitations in the clusters support this model. The excellent agreement between experiment and theory indicates the importance of both absorption of the laser photons via direct excitation...

    The experiment NA64 is aimed at a direct search for invisible decays of sub-GeV dark photons (A′). The main goal in 2016 was to probe a region of the A′ parameter space, particularly interesting for the explanation of the muon g − 2 anomaly. The status and results from two NA64 runs in July and October 2016, obtained, respectively, with 2.75×109 and 4×1010 accumulated electron on target are reported. A feasibility study of the search for the X → e+e− decay of a new light X boson, which could explain a recently observed excess of e+e− events from excited 8Be transitions is also presented.

    Full Text Available W pierwszej części pracy dokonano analizy literatury tematycznej dotyczącej parametrów charakteryzujących wytrzymałość na ścinanie odpadów komunalnych. Wykazała ona, że odpady komunalne charakteryzują się bardzo zróżnicowanymi warto­ściami kąta tarcia wewnętrznego i spójności, które zależą m.in. od ich struktury, stopnia rozkładu, metody badań, w tym zakresu odkształceń. Wpływ tych czynników na wytrzyma­łość na ścinanie odpadów jest często niejednoznaczny, co powoduje, że dobór parametrów wytrzymałościowych dla prognozowania stateczności składowisk jest zadaniem złożonym. W drugiej części pracy dokonano obliczeń stateczności skarpy kwatery składowiska od­ padów komunalnych w Chełmku, wykorzystując wartości parametrów wytrzymałościowych przyjętych z przedmiotowej literatury. Wykazano, że tradycyjna metoda obliczeń stateczności skarpy składowiska, z zastosowaniem uśrednionych parametrów wytrzyma­łościowych odpadów, dała wysoką wartość współczynnika stateczności, natomiast analiza probabilistyczna wykazała, że bezpieczeństwo konstrukcji można uznać jako sytuujące się pomiędzy słabym, a przeciętnym.

We measured exhaled Na + three times with coinciding sampling of salivary Na + and assessment of PBF (using acetylene rebreathing in 13 healthy subjects (54% female, age = 27 ± 7 yrs., ht. = 172 ± 10 cm, wt. = 70 ± 21 kg, BMI = 22 ± 7 kg/m 2 mean ± SD. Exhaled Na + averaged 2.7 ± 1.2 mmol/l, and salivary Na + averaged 5.51 ± 4.58 mmol/l. The coefficients of variation across all three measures in all 13 subjects averaged 30% for exhaled Na + and 83% for salivary Na + , within subjects the variability across the three measures averaged 30% for exhaled Na + and 38% for salivary Na + . Across all three measures in all 13 subjects the relationship between PBF and exhaled Na + averaged 0.027 ( P = 0.87, and the relationship between salivary Na + and exhaled Na + concentrations averaged 0.59 ( P = 0.001. Also, we sought to determine the relationship between exhaled Na + and serum Na + in an addition 20 subjects. There was a moderate and significant relationship between serum Na + and exhaled Na + (r = 0.37, P = 0.04. These findings suggest there that the variability in exhaled Na + is caused, at least in part, by droplet formation from within the mouth as turbulent air passes through and that there is a flux of ions from the pulmonary blood into the airways.

  17. Silicene for Na-ion battery applications

    KAUST Repository

    Zhu, Jiajie

    2016-08-19

    Na-ion batteries are promising candidates to replace Li-ion batteries in large scale applications because of the advantages in natural abundance and cost of Na. Silicene has potential as the anode in Li-ion batteries but so far has not received attention with respect to Na-ion batteries. In this context, freestanding silicene, a graphene-silicene-graphene heterostructure, and a graphene-silicene superlattice are investigated for possible application in Na-ion batteries, using first-principles calculations. The calculated Na capacities of 954mAh/g for freestanding silicene and 730mAh/g for the graphenesilicene superlattice (10% biaxial tensile strain) are highly competitive and potentials of >0.3 V against the Na/Na potential exceed the corresponding value of graphite. In addition, the diffusion barriers are predicted to be <0.3 eV.

    Full Text Available A educação física escolar deve proporcionar experiências aos alunos para o seu desenvolvimento integral. As aulas muitas vezes são reduzidas ao ensino de esportes tradicionais, o que limita o repertório de movimentos dos alunos. Dessa forma o presente estudo de revisão objetiva problematizar o atletismo no ambiente escolar e propor possibilidades pedagógicas para seu ensino. Nesta pesquisa propomos tratar o ensino do atletismo na escola, caracterizando-o pelo seu repertório de movimentos que são naturais ao ser humano, como correr, saltar e lançar, o que possibilita maior praticidade em sua aplicação pedagógica, porém essas possibilidades não são consideradas no ambiente educacional. Diante dos dados encontrados, sugerimos que esse esporte seja abordado de forma multidimensional no ambiente escolar contextualizando-o à visão de algumas correntes teóricas. Nessa perspectiva do esporte educacional, o atletismo pode, assim como deve ser trabalhado nas aulas de educação física como instrumento pedagógico de ensino e auxiliar na formação do aluno de forma global.

    Full Text Available Esta revisão tem como objetivo principal mostrar, baseado em dezenas de pesquisas realizadas, os efeitos tóxicos das micotoxinas aflatoxinas, tricotecenos, zealenona e fumonisinas sobre o desempenho das aves. O descobrimento das propriedades hepatotóxicas e hepatocarcinogênicas de algumas linhagens de Aspergillus flavus e A. parasiticus em perus, na Inglaterra, no início da década de 1960, seguida pela elucidação da estrutura de seus metabólitos tóxicos, as aflatoxinas, deu novo enfoque e prioridade para a pesquisa sobre micotoxinas. Análises de aflatoxinas realizadas no Laboratório de Análises Micotoxicológicas (LAMIC da Universidade Fedaral de Santa Maria, entre os anos de 1986 e janeiro de 2000, em 15.600 amostras de alimentos destinados principalmente ao consumo animal, demonstram que no milho analisado, 41,9% das amostras estavam contaminadas por aflatoxinas. Em surtos de aflatoxicose no campo, uma das características mais marcantes é a má absorção que se manifesta como partículas de ração mal digeridas na excreta das aves. Também observa-se, em frangos e poedeiras que recebem AFL, extrema palidez das mucosas e pernas. Dietas deficientes em riboflavina ou colecalciferol (vit. D tornaram frangos sensíveis, nos índices de desenvolvimento corporal, a concentrações muito baixas de AFL. O efeito aflatoxina nos frangos é maior na fase inicial de crescimento, ou seja, quando as aves ingeriram aflatoxina nos primeiros 21 dias de vida, e quanto maior o nível de stress do lote, menor a quantidade de AFL para afetar negativamente seu desempenho, seja na produção de carne ou de ovos. As principais micotoxinas do grupo dos tricotecenos são: toxina T-2; deoxynivalenol (DON; diacetoxyscirpenol (DAS, todas produzidas através de diversas espécies de fungos do gênero Fusarium. Além dos tricotecenos, o fusarium também pode produzir zearalenona e fumonisinas. Dessas fusarium-toxinas, somente toxina T-2 gera patologias s

    Several lines of evidence demonstrating that innate and adaptive immunity play important roles in the defense against visceral leishmaniasis (VL). A polymorphism within the FcγRIIIB gene can lead to the expression of three variants of NA1, NA2, and the combined one (NA1/NA2) which alters affinity of IgG to its receptor. The main aim of this study was to evaluate the FcγRIIIB-NA1/NA2 polymorphism in the FcγRIIIB gene of VL patients in comparison to healthy controls. In this cross-sectional study, three groups; 54 seropositive patients with clinical presentation of VL (group 1), 104 seropositive patients without clinical presentation (group 2), and 104 healthy controls (group 3) were evaluated with respect to the FcγRIIIB-NA1/NA2 polymorphism using a PCR-SSP method. The titration of anti-leishmania antibodies was analyzed using an immunoflorescence technique. Our results indicated that polymorphisms within the FcγRIIIB gene (that lead to the expression of the NA1/NA2 isoforms) are significantly associated with VL. The results demonstrated that the genotype heterozygotic for FcγRIIIB-NA1/NA2 expression was significantly increased in VL patients, group 1 when compared to groups 2 and 3. Conversely, there is a decrease in homozygous NA1 and NA2 genotypes in VL patients; however, the overall frequency of NA1 and NA2 alleles appear similar across the three cohorts examined. According to our results, it is likely that the increased frequency of the FcγRIIIB-NA1/NA2 genotype is associated with impaired immune responses against VL and its subsequent clearance from the patient.

    Experiments were carried out to grow 3.Nitroaniline (m.NA) crystals doped with 4.Nitroaniline (p.NA) and 2.chloro 4.Nitroaniline (CNA). The measured undercooling for m.NA, p.NA, and CNA were 0.21 tm K, 0.23 tm K, and 0.35 tm K respectively, where tm represents the melting temperature of the pure component. Because of the crystals' large heat of fusion and large undercooling, it was not possible to grow good quality crystals with low thermal gradients. In the conventional two-zone Bridgman furnace we had to raise the temperature of the hot zone above the decomposition temperature of CNA, p.NA, and m.NA to achieve the desired thermal gradient. To avoid decomposition, we used an unconventional Bridgman furnace. Two immiscible liquids, silicone oil and ethylene glycol, were used to build a special two-zone Bridgman furnace. A temperature gradient of 18 K/cm was achieved without exceeding the decomposition temperature of the crystal. The binary crystals, m.NA-p.NA and m.NA-CNA, were grown in centimeter size in this furnace. X-ray and optical characterization showed good optical quality.

    Full Text Available Prezentowany artykuł Michela Foucaulta został opublikowany w 1963 roku. Foucault rozwija w nim koncepcję archeologii wiedzy – metody analizy historycznych dyskursów, którą zaprezentuje w sześć lat później w książce o tym właśnie tytule. Artykuł powstał na kanwie pytania wybranego przez autora spośród zadanych mu przez redakcję „Esprit”, które dotyczyło możliwości pojęciowego opracowania przymusu systemu dyskursywnego przy jednoczesnym zaakcentowaniu nieciągłości w jego obrębie a tym samym możliwości twórczego działania w historii ducha. A także, czy tak sformułowana aporia zakładałaby z konieczności zgodę na przymus systemu lub afirmację siły zdolnej do przekształcenia go za pomocą zewnętrznej przemocy? Tekst jest wprawką do sformułowania dojrzałej teorii dyskursu, rodzajem autoanalizy, która pozwala Foucaultowi powiązać własną metodę historyczną z „progresywistyczną polityką” myśli i rozwiązać w ten sposób dylemat pełnej determinacji i wolnego sprawstwa obecny w rozważaniach wielu strukturalistów.

  8. Regulation of Na+ fluxes in plants

    Full Text Available When exposed to salt, every plant takes up Na+ from the environment. Once in the symplast, Na+ is distributed within cells and between different tissues and organs. There it can help to lower the cellular water potential but also exert potentially toxic effects. Control of Na+ fluxes is therefore crucial and indeed, research shows that the divergence between salt tolerant and salt sensitive plants is not due to a variation in transporter types but rather originates in the control of uptake and internal Na+ fluxes. A number of regulatory mechanisms has been identified based on signalling of Ca2+, cyclic nucleotides, reactive oxygen species, hormones, or on transcriptional and post translational changes of gene and protein expression. This review will give an overview of intra- and intercellular movement of Na+ in plants and will summarise our current ideas of how these fluxes are controlled and regulated in the early stages of salt stress.

    Full Text Available O bullying é uma forma de violência presente nas escolas e o termo é utilizado para caracterizar todas as formas de agressões repetitivas psicológicas e físicas, direta ou indiretamente. Esta violência causa sofrimentos, intimidação e medo, sempre numa relação de poder entre pares. Esta pesquisa trata de um estudo do bullying escolar: o que é, como surgiu, como identificá-lo e sua caracterização, conseqüências, causas, o papel da escola, de professores e pais e uma proposta prática que pode ser adotada para sua prevenção e contenção. O objetivo é organizar materiais para leitura dos atores educacionais para uma possível reflexão, através de pesquisas bibliográficas. Esta violência é grave e deveria ser tratada como saúde pública, devido às conseqüências que traz, como queda na aprendizagem, na autoestima e em casos mais graves, até o suicido e outras tragédias. A escola necessita atentar para esse tipo de violência, revendo suas ações em todos os momentos, tendo um olhar integral e diferenciado em relação aos alunos. É fundamental que o bullying não seja tratado como brincadeira de criança e para ser identificado e combatido é necessária uma ação entre a família e todos da escola, que pode ser desenvolvida através de projetos que ajudem a apontar caminhos para a solução do problema. Tais ações devem ser pautadas por constantes debates e reflexões, nas quais o aluno se torne o protagonista. Não existem fórmulas prontas, pois a intervenção deve ser feita através da realidade de cada escola.

    Context ALMA is providing us essential information on where certain molecules form. Observing where these molecules emission arises from, the physical conditions of the gas, and how this relates with the presence of other species allows us to understand the formation of many species, and to significantly improve our knowledge of the chemistry that occurs in the space. Aims We studied the molecular distribution of NaCN around IRC +10216, a molecule detected previously, but whose origin is not clear. High angular resolution maps allow us to model the abundance distribution of this molecule and check suggested formation paths. Methods We modeled the emission of NaCN assuming local thermal equilibrium (LTE) conditions. These profiles were fitted to azimuthal averaged intensity profiles to obtain an abundance distribution of NaCN. Results We found that the presence of NaCN seems compatible with the presence of CN, probably as a result of the photodissociation of HCN, in the inner layers of the ejecta of IRC +10216. However, similar as for CH3CN, current photochemical models fail to reproduce this CN reservoir. We also found that the abundance peak of NaCN appears at a radius of 3 × 1015cm, approximately where the abundance of NaCl, suggested to be the parent species, starts to decay. However, the abundance ratio shows that the NaCl abundance is lower than that obtained for NaCN. We expect that the LTE assumption might result in NaCN abundances higher than the real ones. Updated photochemical models, collisional rates, and reaction rates are essential to determine the possible paths of the NaCN formation.

  16. Extracellular Na+ levels regulate formation and activity of the NaX/alpha1-Na+/K+-ATPase complex in neuronal cells.

    Full Text Available MnPO neurons play a critical role in hydromineral homeostasis regulation by acting as sensors of extracellular sodium concentration ([Na+]out. The mechanism underlying Na+-sensing involves Na+-flow through the NaX channel, directly regulated by the Na+/K+-ATPase α1-isoform which controls Na+-influx by modulating channel permeability. Together, these two partners form a complex involved in the regulation of intracellular sodium ([Na+]in. Here we aim to determine whether environmental changes in Na+ could actively modulate the NaX/Na+/K+-ATPase complex activity.We investigated the complex activity using patch-clamp recordings from rat MnPO neurons and Neuro2a cells. When the rats were fed with a high-salt-diet, or the [Na+] in the culture medium was increased, the activity of the complex was up-regulated. In contrast, drop in environmental [Na+] decreased the activity of the complex. Interestingly under hypernatremic condition, the colocalization rate and protein level of both partners were up-regulated. Under hyponatremic condition, only NaX protein expression was increased and the level of NaX/Na+/K+-ATPase remained unaltered. This unbalance between NaX and Na+/K+-ATPase pump proportion would induce a bigger portion of Na+/K+-ATPase-control-free NaX channel. Thus we suggest that hypernatremic environment increases NaX/Na+/K+-ATPase α1-isoform activity by increasing the number of both partners and their colocalization rate, whereas hyponatremic environment down-regulates complex activity via a decrease in the relative number of NaX channels controlled by the pump.

  1. Ionic dependence of active Na-K transport: clamping of cellular Na/sup +/ with monensin

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Haber, R.S.; Pressley, T.A.; Loeb, J.N.; Ismail-Beigi, F.

    1987-07-01

    The Na/sup +/ ionophore monensin was used to study the Na/sup +/- and K/sup +/-dependence of ouabain-inhibitable /sup 86/Rb/sup +/ uptake in ARL 15 cells, a rat liver cell line. Graded concentrations of monensin rapidly induced incremental elevations of cellular Na/sup +/ that were stable for up to 2 h. In experiments in which cellular Na/sup +/ was thus clamped at various levels, the activation curve for ouabain-inhibitable /sup 86/Rb/sup +/ uptake as a function of intracellular Na/sup +/ was found to be steepest near basal Na/sup +/ levels (Hill coefficient /congruent/ 2.4), indicating that these cells can respond to relatively large changes in passive Na/sup +/ entry by increasing the rate of Na-K pump function with only minimal increases in cellular Na/sup +/. Exposure of cells to monensin also permitted examination of the extracellular-K/sup +/ dependence of ouabain inhibitable /sup 86/Rb/sup +/ uptake in presence of saturating intracellular Na/sup +/ and yielded a Hill coefficient of approx. 1.5. The rate of ATP hydrolysis calculated from measurements of the maximal rate of ouabain-inhibitable /sup 86/Rb/sup +/ uptake in intact cells was similar to the enzymatic V/sub max/ of the Na/sup +/-K/sup +/-ATPase in cell lysates, suggesting that the Na/sup +/-K/sup +/-ATPase activity in these broken-cell preparations closely reflects the functional transport capacity of the Na-K pump.

    It has been suggested that a high concentration of Fe(3+) in solution, a low pH, and noncomplexing ions of high ionic strength are all essential for developing a high-quality hematite array. Our curiosity was piqued regarding the role of the electrolyte ions in the hydrothermal synthesis of hematite photoanodes. In this study, we prepared hematite photoanodes hydrothermally from precursor solutions of 0.1 M FeCl3 at pH 1.55 with a background electrolyte of 1.0 M sodium halide (NaF, NaCl, NaBr, or NaI). We compared the structures and properties of the as-obtained hematite photoanodes with those of the material prepared in 1.0 M NaNO3, the most widely adopted electrolyte in previous studies. Among our studied systems, we found that the hematite photoanode prepared in NaCl solution was the only one possessing properties similar to those of the sample obtained from the NaNO3 solution-most importantly in terms of photoelectrochemical performance (ca. 0.2 mA/cm(2) with +0.4 V vs SCE). The hematites obtained from the NaF, NaBr, and NaI solutions exhibited much lower (by approximately 2 orders of magnitude) photocurrent densities under the same conditions, possibly because of their relatively less ordered crystallinity and the absence of rodlike morphologies. Because the synthetic protocol was identical in each case, we believe that these two distinct features reflect the environments in which these hematite photoanodes were formed. Consistent with the latest studies reported in the literature of the X-ray photoelectron spectra of fast-frozen hematite colloids in aqueous solutions, it appears that the degree of surface ion loading at the electrolyte-hematite interface (Stern layer) is critical during the development of hematite photoanodes. We suspect that a lower ion surface loading benefits the hematite developing relatively higher-order and a rodlike texture, thereby improving the photoelectrochemical activity.

    Na-CO2 batteries using earth-abundant Na and greenhouse gas CO2 are promising tools for mobile and stationary energy storage, but they still pose safety risks from leakage of liquid electrolyte and instability of the Na metal anode. These issues result in extremely harsh operating conditions of Na-CO2 batteries and increase the difficulty of scaling up this technology. We report the development of quasi-solid state Na-CO2 batteries with high safety using composite polymer electrolyte (CPE) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO) Na anodes. The CPE of PVDF-HFP [poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-hexafluoropropylene)]-4% SiO2/NaClO4-TEGDME (tetraethylene glycol dimethyl ether) has high ion conductivity (1.0 mS cm(-1)), robust toughness, a nonflammable matrix, and strong electrolyte-locking ability. In addition, the rGO-Na anode presents fast and nondendritic Na(+) plating/stripping (5.7 to 16.5 mA cm(-2)). The improved kinetics and safety enable the constructed rGO-Na/CPE/CO2 batteries to successfully cycle in wide CO2 partial pressure window (5 to 100%, simulated car exhaust) and especially to run for 400 cycles at 500 mA g(-1) with a fixed capacity of 1000 mA·hour g(-1) in pure CO2. Furthermore, we scaled up the reversible capacity to 1.1 A·hour in pouch-type batteries (20 × 20 cm, 10 g, 232 Wh kg(-1)). This study makes quasi-solid state Na-CO2 batteries an attractive prospect.

    The author believes that if a designer has performed many design or research works entailing solutions to various problems, it is recommendable to consider and become aware of previously used methods whose application might have been unwitting or instinctive. The outcome of such reflection can be worth describing and recording in order to formulate a set of guidelines useful in the future. Such methods, being intuitive in nature, are often tied to the designer's subconsciousness, thus are rarely expressed in a clear manner. By using own methods a designer can prove that space should be composed in a given way in order to address specific needs and defined objectives. All this is aimed at preventing accidental formation of space. An example of reasoning serving the aforementioned purpose can be found in a method referred to as CQC or Composition Quality Control, the application of which facilitates intentional shaping of an architectural piece of work. Autor uważa uważa, że jeśli projektant ma za sobą wiele prac projektowych lub też prac badawczych, które połączone były z rozwiązywaniem różnych problemów, to warto zastanowić się i uświadomić sobie sposoby, które dotychczas - może nieświadomie lub odruchowo - były stosowane. Wynik refleksji warto opisać i zapisać po to, żeby ująć go w układ wskazań na przyszłość. Metody te, mając charakter intuicyjny, często związane są z podświadomością projektanta, w związku z tym rzadko można spotkać je jako wyrażone w sposób wyraźny. Stosując metody własne można dowieść, że przestrzeń winna być komponowana tak, a nie inaczej dla określonych potrzeb i wytyczonych celów tak, aby jej forma nie była przypadkowa. Przykładem takiego rozumowania jest przyjeta metoda KJK, której zastosowanie pomaga w swiadomym kształtowaniu dzieła architektonicznego.

  20. Na/K pump inactivation, subsarcolemmal Na measurements, and cytoplasmic ion turnover kinetics contradict restricted Na spaces in murine cardiac myocytes.

    2017-07-03

    Decades ago, it was proposed that Na transport in cardiac myocytes is modulated by large changes in cytoplasmic Na concentration within restricted subsarcolemmal spaces. Here, we probe this hypothesis for Na/K pumps by generating constitutive transsarcolemmal Na flux with the Na channel opener veratridine in whole-cell patch-clamp recordings. Using 25 mM Na in the patch pipette, pump currents decay strongly during continuous activation by extracellular K (τ, ∼2 s). In contradiction to depletion hypotheses, the decay becomes stronger when pump currents are decreased by hyperpolarization. Na channel currents are nearly unchanged by pump activity in these conditions, and conversely, continuous Na currents up to 0.5 nA in magnitude have negligible effects on pump currents. These outcomes are even more pronounced using 50 mM Li as a cytoplasmic Na congener. Thus, the Na/K pump current decay reflects mostly an inactivation mechanism that immobilizes Na/K pump charge movements, not cytoplasmic Na depletion. When channel currents are increased beyond 1 nA, models with unrestricted subsarcolemmal diffusion accurately predict current decay (τ ∼15 s) and reversal potential shifts observed for Na, Li, and K currents through Na channels opened by veratridine, as well as for Na, K, Cs, Li, and Cl currents recorded in nystatin-permeabilized myocytes. Ion concentrations in the pipette tip (i.e., access conductance) track without appreciable delay the current changes caused by sarcolemmal ion flux. Importantly, cytoplasmic mixing volumes, calculated from current decay kinetics, increase and decrease as expected with osmolarity changes (τ >30 s). Na/K pump current run-down over 20 min reflects a failure of pumps to recover from inactivation. Simulations reveal that pump inactivation coupled with Na-activated recovery enhances the rapidity and effectivity of Na homeostasis in cardiac myocytes. In conclusion, an autoregulatory mechanism enhances cardiac Na/K pump activity when

    We discuss an observed sudden enhancement in the Na number density around 22:00 UT on 1 to 2 June 2006. We compare this observation with previous summer measurements and find a frequent appearance of Na number density enhancements near local midnight. We describe the time of appearance, the altitude distribution, the duration and the strength of these enhancements and compare them to winter observations. We investigate possible formation mechanisms and, as others before, we find a strong link between these Na number density enhancements and sporadic E layers.

    Metallic Na was formed in NaCl single crystals with irradiation of a variety of radiation sources and analyzed the physical states with several methods. In the case of irradiation of 21 MeV electron pulses to the crystal blocks, the optical absorption and lifetime measurement of positron annihilation indicated appearance of Na clusters inside. Radiation effects of electron beam of 30 keV to the crystals in vacuum showed the appearance of not only metallic Na but atomic one during irradiation with Auger electron spectroscopy. Intense photon fluxes in vacuum ultraviolet region of synchrotron radiation were used as another source and an analyzing method of ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy. The results showed the metallic Na layered so thick that bulk plasmon can exist. (author)

  6. Changes in Intracellular Na+ following Enhancement of Late Na+ Current in Virtual Human Ventricular Myocytes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Giles, Wayne R.

    2016-01-01

    The slowly inactivating or late Na+ current, INa-L, can contribute to the initiation of both atrial and ventricular rhythm disturbances in the human heart. However, the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie these pro-arrhythmic influences are not fully understood. At present, the major working hypothesis is that the Na+ influx corresponding to INa-L significantly increases intracellular Na+, [Na+]i; and the resulting reduction in the electrochemical driving force for Na+ reduces and (may reverse) Na+/Ca2+ exchange. These changes increase intracellular Ca2+, [Ca2+]i; which may further enhance INa-L due to calmodulin-dependent phosphorylation of the Na+ channels. This paper is based on mathematical simulations using the O’Hara et al (2011) model of baseline or healthy human ventricular action potential waveforms(s) and its [Ca2+]i homeostasis mechanisms. Somewhat surprisingly, our results reveal only very small changes (≤ 1.5 mM) in [Na+]i even when INa-L is increased 5-fold and steady-state stimulation rate is approximately 2 times the normal human heart rate (i.e. 2 Hz). Previous work done using well-established models of the rabbit and human ventricular action potential in heart failure settings also reported little or no change in [Na+]i when INa-L was increased. Based on our simulations, the major short-term effect of markedly augmenting INa-L is a significant prolongation of the action potential and an associated increase in the likelihood of reactivation of the L-type Ca2+ current, ICa-L. Furthermore, this action potential prolongation does not contribute to [Na+]i increase. PMID:27875582

  7. Functional coupling of renal K+ and Na+ handling causes high blood pressure in Na+ replete mice.

    A network of kinases, including WNKs, SPAK and Sgk1, is critical for the independent regulation of K+ and Na+ transport in the distal nephron. Angiotensin II is thought to act as a key hormone in orchestrating these kinases to switch from K+ secretion during hyperkalaemia to Na+ reabsorption during intravascular volume depletion, thus keeping disturbances in electrolyte and blood pressure homeostasis at a minimum. It remains unclear, however, how K+ and Na+ transport are regulated during a high Na+ intake, which is associated with suppressed angiotensin II levels and a high distal tubular Na+ load. We therefore investigated the integrated blood pressure, renal, hormonal and gene and protein expression responses to large changes of K+ intake in Na+ replete mice. Both low and high K+ intake increased blood pressure and caused Na+ retention. Low K+ intake was accompanied by an upregulation of the sodium-chloride cotransporter (NCC) and its activating kinase SPAK, and inhibition of NCC normalized blood pressure. Renal responses were unaffected by angiotensin AT1 receptor antagonism, indicating that low K+ intake activates the distal nephron by an angiotensin-independent mode of action. High K+ intake was associated with elevated plasma aldosterone concentrations and an upregulation of the epithelial sodium channel (ENaC) and its activating kinase Sgk1. Surprisingly, high K+ intake increased blood pressure even during ENaC or mineralocorticoid receptor antagonism, suggesting the contribution of aldosterone-independent mechanisms. These findings show that in a Na+ replete state, changes in K+ intake induce specific molecular and functional adaptations in the distal nephron that cause a functional coupling of renal K+ and Na+ handling, resulting in Na+ retention and high blood pressure when K+ intake is either restricted or excessively increased.

    Studies of the nuclear properties of nuclei close and even beyond the limits of stability have revealed exotic modes of decay and new structural characteristics. The MoNA-LISA array is used at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University to study nuclei along the neutron dripline. In a typical experiment, a radioactive beam is employed to produce the neutron-unbound state of interest. This state/resonance immediately decay into a neutron, which is detected by MoNA-LISA and a remaining charged nucleus detected by the sweeper magnet detector suite. In this talk, new exciting findings from recent MoNA-LISA experiments will be presented. These include the first observation of a dineutron decay from ^16Be, the exploration of the ``south shore'' of the Island of Inversion and the first evidence of the decay of the troubling nucleus ^26O.

  13. Targeting voltage gated sodium channels NaV1.7, Na V1.8, and Na V1.9 for treatment of pathological cough.

    2014-02-01

    Recent advances in our understanding of voltage-gated sodium channels (NaVs) lead to the rational hypothesis that drugs capable of selective blockade of NaV subtypes may be a safe and effective strategy for the treatment of unwanted cough. Among the nine NaV subtypes (NaV1.1-NaV1.9), the afferent nerves involved in initiating cough, in common with nociceptive neurons in the somatosensory system, express mainly NaV1.7, NaV1.8, and NaV1.9. Although knowledge about the effect of selectively blocking these channels on the cough reflex is limited, their biophysical properties indicate that each may contribute to the hypertussive and allotussive state that typifies subacute and chronic nonproductive cough.

Esses riscos incluem agentes físicos, químicos, ergonômicos, de acidentes e biológicos. O contato rotineiro com esses últimos deve ser motivo de reflexão e intervenção. Objetivo: Descrever os aspectos da biossegurança na odontologia. Métodos: Foi realizada uma revisão do estado da arte, adotando-se critérios para análise dos trabalhos mais diretamente relacionados à prática odontológica. A partir dos descritores controlados (DeCS "biossegurança" e "odontologia", procederam-se a busca na Literatura Latino-Americana e do Caribe em Ciências da Saúde, na Scientific Electronic Library Online, na National Library of Medicine e na Biblioteca Cochrane. Resultados: Com a associação entre os DeCS, chegou-se a 66 artigos, porém, após refinamento foram incluídos nesta revisão 12 artigos. Nos resultados foi evidenciado que a produção científica sobre biossegurança é vasta, bem como é ampla na odontologia, contudo, quando da concentração de trabalhos contempladores da associação dos termos biossegurança e odontologia, a quantidade de estudos diminui consideravelmente. Não obstante, as pesquisas foram, em sua maioria, desenvolvidas por estudiosos nacionais, da região nordeste e evidenciaram que o conhecimento e a adoção de medidas de segurança biológica na área ainda são insuficientes para garantir a proteção da equipe e dos pacientes qualitativamente. Conclusão: Sugere-se que as normas de precaução padrão sejam seguidas rigidamente e que ações de educação sejam promovidas entre os profissionais.

    Full Text Available High criteria of mammographic breast density are the risk factor of breast cancer occurrence. Numerousresearch papers report that the estrogenic-progestagenic therapy, especially in continuous schema, results innipple density increase up to 3-6%. Moreover, the literature states that the estrogenic therapy does not causethe increase of MBD. The type of gestagen used seems not to have any influence on breast density, however,estrogen dosage and the age at which the hormonal replacement therapy has been introduced, play crucial role.In most patients from the group of high risk of breast cancer and those treated because of this reason, the useof tamoxifen reduces statistically breast density. Other drugs such as raloxifene or letrozole indicate a decreaseof mammographic breast density similar to placebo.

  10. Effects of non-uniform root zone salinity on water use, Na+ recirculation, and Na+ and H+ flux in cotton.

    2012-03-01

    A new split-root system was established through grafting to study cotton response to non-uniform salinity. Each root half was treated with either uniform (100/100 mM) or non-uniform NaCl concentrations (0/200 and 50/150 mM). In contrast to uniform control, non-uniform salinity treatment improved plant growth and water use, with more water absorbed from the non- and low salinity side. Non-uniform treatments decreased Na(+) concentrations in leaves. The [Na(+)] in the '0' side roots of the 0/200 treatment was significantly higher than that in either side of the 0/0 control, but greatly decreased when the '0' side phloem was girdled, suggesting that the increased [Na(+)] in the '0' side roots was possibly due to transportation of foliar Na(+) to roots through phloem. Plants under non-uniform salinity extruded more Na(+) from the root than those under uniform salinity. Root Na(+) efflux in the low salinity side was greatly enhanced by the higher salinity side. NaCl-induced Na(+) efflux and H(+) influx were inhibited by amiloride and sodium orthovanadate, suggesting that root Na(+) extrusion was probably due to active Na(+)/H(+) antiport across the plasma membrane. Improved plant growth under non-uniform salinity was thus attributed to increased water use, reduced leaf Na(+) concentration, transport of excessive foliar Na(+) to the low salinity side, and enhanced Na(+) efflux from the low salinity root.

    Na-A and/or Na-X zeolite/porous carbon composites were prepared under hydrothermal conditions by NaOH dissolution of silica first from carbonized rice husk followed by addition of NaAlO 2 and in situ crystallization of zeolites i.e., using a two-step process. When a one-step process was used, both Na-A and Na-X zeolites crystallized on the surface of carbon. Na-A or Na-X zeolite crystals were prepared on the porous carbonized rice husk at 90 °C for 2-6 h by changing the SiO 2/Al 2O 3, H 2O/Na 2O and Na 2O/SiO 2 molar ratios of precursors in the two-step process. The surface area and NH 4+-cation exchange capacity (CEC) of Na-A zeolite/porous carbon were found to be 171 m 2/g and 506 meq/100 g, respectively, while those of Na-X zeolite/porous carbon composites were 676 m 2/g and 317 meq/100 g, respectively. Na-A and Na-X zeolites are well-known microporous and hydrophilic materials while carbonized rice husk was found to be mesoporous (pores of ˜3.9 nm) and hydrophobic. These hybrid microporous-mesoporous and hydrophilic-hydrophobic composites are expected to be useful for decontamination of metal cations as well as organic contaminants simultaneously.

  12. Muscle K+, Na+, and Cl- disturbances and Na+-K+ pump inactivation: implications for fatigue

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    McKenna, Michael J; Bangsbo, Jens; Renaud, Jean-Marc

    2008-01-01

    Membrane excitability is a critical regulatory step in skeletal muscle contraction and is modulated by local ionic concentrations, conductances, ion transporter activities, temperature, and humoral factors. Intense fatiguing contractions induce cellular K(+) efflux and Na(+) and Cl(-) influx......, these ionic changes depolarize sarcolemmal and t-tubular membranes to depress tetanic force and are thus likely to contribute to fatigue. Interestingly, less severe local ionic changes can also augment subtetanic force, suggesting that they may potentiate muscle contractility early in exercise. Increased Na......(+)-K(+)-ATPase activity during exercise stabilizes Na(+) and K(+) concentration gradients and membrane excitability and thus protects against fatigue. However, during intense contraction some Na(+)-K(+) pumps are inactivated and together with further ionic disturbances, likely precipitate muscle fatigue....

    The NA62 and NA48/2 experiments at CERN collected a large sample of charged kaon decays with a low intensity beam and minimum bias trigger conditions in 2004 (NA48/2) and 2007 (NA62). This allowed measurements of a number of rare decays that are difficult to address in conventional high intensity experiments with highly selective trigger conditions. In particular, large samples of K{sup ±}→π{sup ±}γγ and K{sup ±}→e{sup ±{sup ({sup −{sup −{sup )}}}}}νγ decays have been collected, allowing precision tests of the Chiral Perturbation Theory. The status and first results of these analyses are presented.

  14. Regulation of cardiac myocyte contractility by phospholemman: Na+/Ca2+ exchange versus Na+ -K+ -ATPase.

    2008-10-01

    Phospholemman (PLM) regulates cardiac Na(+)/Ca(2+) exchanger (NCX1) and Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase in cardiac myocytes. PLM, when phosphorylated at Ser(68), disinhibits Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase but inhibits NCX1. PLM regulates cardiac contractility by modulating Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase and/or NCX1. In this study, we first demonstrated that adult mouse cardiac myocytes cultured for 48 h had normal surface membrane areas, t-tubules, and NCX1 and sarco(endo)plasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase levels, and retained near normal contractility, but alpha(1)-subunit of Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase was slightly decreased. Differences in contractility between myocytes isolated from wild-type (WT) and PLM knockout (KO) hearts were preserved after 48 h of culture. Infection with adenovirus expressing green fluorescent protein (GFP) did not affect contractility at 48 h. When WT PLM was overexpressed in PLM KO myocytes, contractility and cytosolic Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)) transients reverted back to those observed in cultured WT myocytes. Both Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase current (I(pump)) and Na(+)/Ca(2+) exchange current (I(NaCa)) in PLM KO myocytes rescued with WT PLM were depressed compared with PLM KO myocytes. Overexpressing the PLMS68E mutant (phosphomimetic) in PLM KO myocytes resulted in the suppression of I(NaCa) but had no effect on I(pump). Contractility, [Ca(2+)](i) transient amplitudes, and sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) contents in PLM KO myocytes overexpressing the PLMS68E mutant were depressed compared with PLM KO myocytes overexpressing GFP. Overexpressing the PLMS68A mutant (mimicking unphosphorylated PLM) in PLM KO myocytes had no effect on I(NaCa) but decreased I(pump). Contractility, [Ca(2+)](i) transient amplitudes, and sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) contents in PLM KO myocytes overexpressing the S68A mutant were similar to PLM KO myocytes overexpressing GFP. We conclude that at the single-myocyte level, PLM affects cardiac contractility and [Ca(2+)](i) homeostasis primarily by its direct

  15. Role of Na+ conductance, Na+-H+ exchange, and Na+-K+-2Cl− symport in the regulatory volume increase of rat hepatocytes

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wehner, Frank; Tinel, Hanna

    1998-01-01

    In rat hepatocytes under hypertonic stress, the entry of Na+ (which is thereafter exchanged for K+ via Na+-K+-ATPase) plays the key role in regulatory volume increase (RVI).In the present study, the contributions of Na+ conductance, Na+-H+ exchange and Na+-K+-2Cl− symport to this process were quantified in confluent primary cultures by means of intracellular microelectrodes and cable analysis, microfluorometric determinations of cell pH and buffer capacity, and measurements of frusemide (furosemide)/bumetanide-sensitive 86Rb+ uptake, respectively. Osmolarity was increased from 300 to 400 mosmol l−1 by addition of sucrose.The experiments indicate a relative contribution of approximately 4:1:1 to hypertonicity-induced Na+ entry for the above-mentioned transporters and the overall Na+ yield equalled 51 mmol l−1 (10 min)−1.This Na+ gain is in good agreement with the stimulation of Na+ extrusion via Na+-K+-ATPase plus the actual increase in cell Na+, namely 55 mmol l−1 (10 min)−1, as was determined on the basis of ouabain-sensitive 86Rb+ uptake and by means of Na+-sensitive microelectrodes, respectively.The overall increase in Na+ and K+ activity plus the expected concomitant increase in cell Cl− equalled 68 mmol l−1, which fits well with the increase in osmotic activity expected to occur from an initial cell shrinkage to 87.5 % and a RVI to 92.6 % of control, namely 53 mosmol l−1.The prominent role of Na+ conductance in the RVI of rat hepatocytes could be confirmed on the basis of the pharmacological profile of this process, which was characterized by means of confocal laser-scanning microscopy.

    Full Text Available O processo de envelhecimento no indivíduo saudável está relacionado com inúmeras alterações psicológicas e físicas que interferem na área motora, concorrendo para a inatividade e contribuindo para o aparecimento e agravamento de determinadas doenças, além de influenciar negativamente a realização das atividades de vida diária. Portanto, a prática de atividade física é fundamental para o idoso, não só na prevenção de doenças como na reabilitação de suas habilidades motoras, promovendo um estilo de vida saudável que é fator preponderante para a melhoria da qualidade de vida. Contudo, algumas precauções devem ser adotadas na prescrição da atividade direcionada para o idoso, a fim de que esta seja segura e prazerosa. Dentre os exercícios mais adequados aos idosos estão a caminhada, o ciclismo, a natação e a hidroginástica. Devido a sua grande procura, a hidroginástica vem aumentando o número de adeptos na terceira idade. Ela propicia ao idoso o aumento de sua capacidade aeróbia, força muscular, flexibilidade articular e o treinamento de habilidades específicas como equilíbrio e coordenação motora. Soma-se ainda o fato de esta atividade oferecer ambiente de relaxamento e incentivo ao contato social, atuando no combate ao estresse, depressão, na melhoria da autopercepção corporal e da auto-estima. Devemos, então, estar atentos às particularidades da hidroginástica, a fim de aproveitar todas as vantagens que esta oferece para o programa de exercícios direcionado para a terceira idade.

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

    Full Text Available O que pretendo defender neste texto é que uma posição empirista na moral é compatível com uma pretensão de validade intersubjetiva de juízos morais. Essa pretensão deve, nesse caso, estar calcada na naturalização dos fundamentos da moralidade, mas tem de conviver com limites acerca da justificação de enunciados de valor. Para defender esse ponto, sirvo-me da filosofia moral de Hume, como ele a expôs no seu texto Uma investigação sobre os princípios da moral. No que diz respeito à filosofia de Hume, o objetivo deste texto é explicitar o caráter empírico seja de seu método de investigação da moral, seja do princípio que para ela ele encontra.

    Full Text Available The NA62 experiment at SPS is a continuation of the long standing CERN kaon physics program. The high statistics and the unprecedent precision allow to probe the Standard Model and test the description of the strong interactions at low energy. The final results on the the lepton universality test by measuring the ratio RK = Γ(K+ → e+ν/Γ(K+ → µ+ν and the study of the K± → π±γγ decay are presented. The major goal of the NA62 experiment is to perform a measurement of the Br(K+ → π+νν̄ with a precision of 10% in two years of data taking. The detector setup together with the analysis technique is described.

    The NA60 experiment is a fixed-target experiment at the CERN SPS. It has measured the dimuon yield in Indium--Indium collisions with an In beam of 158 AGeV/c and in p-A collisions with a proton beam of 400 and 158 AGeV/c. The results allow to address three important physics topics, namely the study of the rho spectral function in nuclear collisions, the clarification of the origin of the dimuon excess measured by NA50 in the intermediate mass range, and the J/psi suppression pattern in a collision system different from Pb-Pb. An overview of these results will be given in this paper.

    2016-01-01

    The NA61/SHINE experiment aims to discover the critical point of strongly interacting matter and study the properties of the onset of deconfinement. For these goals a scan of the two dimensional phase diagram (T-$\\mu_B$) is being performed at the SPS by measurements of hadron production in proton-proton, proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus interactions as a function of collision energy and system size. In this contribution intriguing results on the energy dependence of hadron spectra and yields in inelastic p+p and centrality selected Be+Be collisions will be presented. In particular, the energy dependence of the signals of deconfinement, the 'horn', 'step' and 'kink', in p+p interactions will be presented and compared with the corresponding results from central Pb+Pb collisions from NA49.

    Double quantum and triple quantum filtered (23)Na nuclear magnetic resonance techniques were used to characterise in detail the isotropic and anisotropic binding and dynamics of intra- and extracellular Na(+) in different cellular systems, in the absence and presence of Li(+). The kinetics of Li(+) influx by different cell types was evaluated. At steady state, astrocytes accumulated more Li(+) than red blood cells (RBCs), while a higher intracellular Li(+) concentration was found in chromaffin than in SH-SY5Y cells. Anisotropic and isotropic motions were detected for extracellular Na(+) in all cellular systems studied. Isotropic intracellular Na(+) motions were observed in all types of cells, while anisotropic Na(+) motions in the intracellular compartment were only detected in RBCs. (23)Na triple quantum signal efficiency for intracellular Na(+) was SH-SY5Y > chromaffin > RBCs, while the reverse order was observed for the extracellular ions. (23)Na double quantum signal efficiency for intracellular Na(+) was non-zero only in RBCs, and for extracellular Na(+) the order RBCs > chromaffin > SH-SY5Y cells was observed. Li(+) loading generally decreased intracellular Na(+) isotropic movements in the cells, except for astrocytes incubated with a low Li(+) concentration and increased anisotropic intracellular Na(+) movements in RBCs. Li(+) effects on the extracellular signals were more complex, reflecting Li(+)/Na(+) competition for isotropic and anisotropic binding sites at the extracellular surface of cell membranes and also at the surface of the gel used for cell immobilisation. These results are relevant and contribute to the interpretation of the in vivo pharmacokinetics and sites of Li(+) action.

  8. Sources of Na for the Io atmosphere

    Science.gov (United States)

    Burnett, D. S.; Ellis, Susan B.; Rice, A.; Epstein, S.

    1993-01-01

    The physics and geology of Io have been extensively studied, but there has been little discussion of the chemistry. Relatively little is known about Io chemistry, but there are constraints. Further, it will be a long time before improvements will result from direct observation, given the severe difficulties with the Galileo mission. Via laboratory simulation experiments, plausible thermochemical and photochemical processes which determine the nature and amounts of surface constituents of Io are explored. The well-known density of Io shows that the planet overall is rocky. Because the orbit of Io is well within the magnetosphere of Jupiter and because Io only has a thin, transient SO2 atmosphere, the surface is continually sputtered with magnetospheric ions. Complex processes ionize and accelerate the Io surface atoms to keV and MeV energies. Remarkably, only S, O, and Na ions were found by Voyager. Sputtering also produces an atomic cloud of Na and S (O not observable) with a trace of K. Both gaseous and solid SO2 are known from spectroscopic studies. A trace of H2S and possibly CO2 are present. Geologic features are interpreted in terms of elemental S, but there is no direct evidence for this constituent. We thus have a rocky planet which does not have rocks on the surface. Our general goal is to understand the cycling of Na, S, and O through the crust and atmosphere on present-day Io and to understand how Io evolved to this state. A specific objective was to determine the phases on the surface which are the source of the Na in the atmosphere of Io.

    The NA64 experiment, known as P348 before official approval, was proposed to the CERN SPSC on January 2014 with main goal the search for the following decay modes A′ → invisible A′ → e−e+ (1) In March 2016 P348 was granted approval by the CERN Research Board and received the title NA64. Since having been promoted, the experiment has been conducting the searches the searches for the processes mentioned above at the CERN SPS. NA64 is a fixed target experiment which utilizes the active beam dump. The detection of rare processes is based on the missing energy techniques. Such techniques are used for particles whose interaction with the detector is very small, so that they escape the detection and carry away some energy. A significant missing energy in the experiment means that such particles are produced. The method of the search for the A′ → invisible decay is as follows. If the A′ exists it could be produced via the kinetic mixing with bremsstrahlung photons in the reaction of high-energy elec...

  20. Resonances production from the NA60 experiment

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    De Falco A.

    2012-11-01

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

    1998-12-01

    A new BPM system, based on resonant cavities, has been developed for measuring the transverse position of very low-intensity electron beams delivered to Experimental Hall B at the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) in Newport News. VA. The system requirements called for measuring down to 1 nA with a 100 m m resolution. The actual system is much better: it can measure down to 100 pA at the 100 m m required resolution. A 100 pA beam yields about 1 electron per bunch. Each 1 nA BPM utilizes three resonant RF cavities to determine the position of the beam: one cavity sensitive to X position, a second cavity sensitive to Y position, and a third cavity which measures intensity. The position cavities operate at room temperature in a dipole type mode at 1497 MHz and contain internal field perturbing rods in an arrangement similar to that of the CEBAF rf Separator cavities. The position cavities are electron beam welded assemblies made of copper plated stainless steel. The RF output signal from each cavity is processed using a down-converter and a DSP based commercial lock-in amplifier operating at 100 kHz. The lock-in amplifiers connect to the EPICS control system via an IEEE 488 bus. System features under development include intensity and position modulation measurement capabilities. This paper provides measured performance results and an updated overview of the installed and operational 1 nA BPM system.

  9. Route, mechanism, and implications of proton import during Na+/K+ exchange by native Na+/K+-ATPase pumps

    Science.gov (United States)

    Vedovato, Natascia

    2014-01-01

    A single Na+/K+-ATPase pumps three Na+ outwards and two K+ inwards by alternately exposing ion-binding sites to opposite sides of the membrane in a conformational sequence coupled to pump autophosphorylation from ATP and auto-dephosphorylation. The larger flow of Na+ than K+ generates outward current across the cell membrane. Less well understood is the ability of Na+/K+ pumps to generate an inward current of protons. Originally noted in pumps deprived of external K+ and Na+ ions, as inward current at negative membrane potentials that becomes amplified when external pH is lowered, this proton current is generally viewed as an artifact of those unnatural conditions. We demonstrate here that this inward current also flows at physiological K+ and Na+ concentrations. We show that protons exploit ready reversibility of conformational changes associated with extracellular Na+ release from phosphorylated Na+/K+ pumps. Reversal of a subset of these transitions allows an extracellular proton to bind an acidic side chain and to be subsequently released to the cytoplasm. This back-step of phosphorylated Na+/K+ pumps that enables proton import is not required for completion of the 3 Na+/2 K+ transport cycle. However, the back-step occurs readily during Na+/K+ transport when external K+ ion binding and occlusion are delayed, and it occurs more frequently when lowered extracellular pH raises the probability of protonation of the externally accessible carboxylate side chain. The proton route passes through the Na+-selective binding site III and is distinct from the principal pathway traversed by the majority of transported Na+ and K+ ions that passes through binding site II. The inferred occurrence of Na+/K+ exchange and H+ import during the same conformational cycle of a single molecule identifies the Na+/K+ pump as a hybrid transporter. Whether Na+/K+ pump–mediated proton inflow may have any physiological or pathophysiological significance remains to be clarified. PMID

  11. VISIBILIDADE GAY NA ESCOLA: ESTUDANTES QUEER

    Full Text Available Nesse artigo apresento as considerações e análises presentes na pesquisa em processo, que realizo numa escola pública. Sua constituição deve seu primeiro movimento às manifestações de desconforto e homofobia com relação a um grupo específico de três estudantes gays na comunidade escolar na qual atuo como professora. Percebo que a presença desse grupo desacomoda o cotidiano escolar e desenvolvo minha argumentação com base no potencial desestabilizador desses sujeitos, na intenção de pensar o impensável no currículo escolar. Esse trabalho parte da visibilidade de uma identidade sexual que foge à norma heterossexual e desafia a tendência normalizadora e homogeneizadora da educação. A maneira como esse grupo gay se posiciona e constrói seus corpos cruza as fronteiras do masculino/feminino, desnaturalizando as identidades sexuais e de gênero que se baseiam em características biológicas e se apresentando como diferença que escapa às classificações binárias. Na construção da pesquisa utilizo como referência o pensamento de Michel Foucault, especialmente com relação à construção histórica e discursiva de conceitos como sexualidade, identidade, diferença e normalidade que têm servido para criação e manutenção de padrões de conduta. Ao levar a problematização desses conceitos para o contexto escolar, considero produtiva a teorização queer para pensar a possibilidade de uma educação não heteronormativa, produtora de diferenças, que desconstrua identidades ao invés de tentar cristalizá-las.

  12. Platinum species in the pores of NaX, NaY and NaA zeolites studied using EPR, XAS and FTIR spectroscopies.

    The results of X-band EPR, X-ray absorption and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy on Pt(NH(3))(4)(2+) exchanged NaX, NaY and NaA zeolites reveal after oxygen calcination at 573 K that diamagnetic Pt(2+) is not the only product. Calcination provides Pt(3+) cations, but depending on the heating rate, the decomposition of amino groups during calcination also produces hydrogen that reduces Pt(3+) to Pt(2+) and Pt(+). NaX (Si/Al = 1.23) has a more negative framework charge than NaY (Si/Al = 2.31), so Pt(3+) can be stabilized only in NaX, whereas lower oxidation states of Pt such as Pt(+) can be stabilized in both, NaX and NaY, and neither of the paramagnetic Pt cations are stabilized in NaUSY (Si/Al = 3). The autoreduction process allows controlling the number of Pt(3+) and Pt(+) in the NaX zeolite by changing the calcination heating rate: a heating rate of 1.25 K min(-1) gives only Pt(+), but 0.5 K min(-1) gives a Pt(3+)/Pt(+) ratio close to 1. The structure of the support is also important for the synthesis of Pt species. While isolated paramagnetic Pt ions were stabilized in faujasite zeolites (NaX and NaY), a paramagnetic Pt dimer was obtained in a Linde type A zeolite (LTA, Si/Al = 1) by applying the same preparation methods. The fraction of paramagnetic Pt species which were characterized by X-band EPR spectroscopy amounts to 2-18% of the total Pt in the zeolites, the remaining Pt must be diamagnetic.

    The Na(+) recirculation theory for solute-coupled fluid absorption is an expansion of the local osmosis concept introduced by Curran and analyzed by Diamond & Bossert. Based on studies on small intestine the theory assumes that the observed recirculation of Na(+) serves regulation of the osmolarity......Cl by sucrose as well as the linear dependence of volume absorption on luminal NaCl concentration. Analysis of solvent drag on Na(+) in tight junctions provides explanation for the surprisingly high metabolic efficiency of Na(+) reabsorption.

    Photo 02: Side view of the NA48 experiment showing the LKR calorimeter cryostat No one is sure why the Universe wound up the way it has: all matter and no antimatter. According to prevailing theories, the early universe had equal amounts of matter and antimatter. To see what might be missing from the theories, physicists search for the rare cases in which matter and antimatter behave differently. One such imbalance, called direct CP violation, showed up in the NA 31 experiment at CERN. The results from this experiment, first presented in 1993, showed that when K mesons and their antimatter cousins decay, they show a slight preference for matter over antimatter. Later experiments with neutral K mesons, including NA48 at CERN and KTeV at Fermilab in the United States, showed direct CP violation is real.

    Zeolites Na-A and Na-X are important synthetic zeolites widely used for separation and adsorption in industry. It is of great significance to develop energy-efficient routines that can synthesize zeolites Na-A and Na-X from low-cost raw materials. Coal fly ash (CFA) is the major residue from the combustion of coal and biomass containing more than 85% SiO2 and Al2O3, which can readily replace the conventionally used sodium silicate and aluminate for zeolite synthesis. We used Na2CO3 to replace the expensive NaOH used for the calcination of CFA and showed that tablet compression can enhance the contact with Na2CO3 for the activation of CFA through calcination for the synthesis of zeolites Na-A and Na-X under mild conditions. We optimized the control variables for zeolite synthesis and showed that phase-pure zeolite Na-A can be synthesized with CFA at reactant molar ratio, hydrothermal reaction temperature and reaction time of 1.3Na2O: 0.6Al2O3: 1SiO2: 38H2O at 80°C for 6 h, respectively, while phase-pure zeolite Na-X can be synthesized at 2.2Na2O: 0.2Al2O3: 1SiO2: 88H2O at 100°C for 8 h, respectively. The composition, morphology, specific surface area, vibration spectrum and thermogravimetry of synthesized Na-A and Na-X were further characterized.

    The response functions of a NaI(Tl) detector have been estimated using Monte Carlo methods. Response functions were calculated for monoenergetic photon sources (0.05 to 3 MeV). Responses were calculated for point-like sources and for sources distributed in Portland cement cylinders. The responses were used to calculate the efficiency functions in term of photon energy. Commonly, sources used for calibration are point-like, and eventually sources to be measured have different features. In order to use the calibrated sources corrections due to solid angle, self-absorption and scattering, must be carried out. However, some of these corrections are not easy to perform. In this work, the calculated responses were used to estimate the detector efficiency of point-like sources, and sources distributed in Portland type cement. Samples of Portland paste were prepared and were exposed to photoneutrons produced by a 15 MV linac. Some of the elements in the cement were activated producing γ-emitting radionuclides that were measured with a NaI(Tl) gamma-ray spectrometer, that was calibrated with point-like sources. In order to determine the specific activity in the induced radioisotopes calculated efficiencies were used to make corrections due to the differences between the solid angle, photon absorption and photon scattering in the point-like calibration sources and the sources distributed in cement. During the interaction between photoneutrons and the cement samples three radioisotopes were induced: {sup 56}Mn, {sup 24}Na, and {sup 28}Al. (Author)

    Full Text Available A interação entre indivíduos depende de uma complexa teia de relações na filosofia de David Hume, que necessitam da maneira como o encadeamento de ideias é feita na mente humana, estando estes assentados sobre os mesmos princípios que fornecem a inclinação do sujeito para asseverar sobre os eventos da matéria. Mais do que ancorar sua teoria da Moral ou da Política sobre os mesmos princípios da crença, a filosofia humeana parece adotar um caminho que se configura por uma via em mão dupla, pois é justamente neste espaço da interação social que o sujeito, ou cada indivíduo de uma sociedade, encontra o alicerce para a fixação da própria crença, aparentemente individual, no fluxo da matéria. Neste sentido, não é apenas a aprendizagem dos costumes que depende da interação social do indivíduo, mas também vemos um grau forte de dependência até mesmo na formação dos termos que são referidos às ideias gerais; sendo importante notar que esta aprendizagem necessita do ponto inicial do reconhecimento do outro para ser efetivada. Desta forma, a nossa pesquisa busca compreender os primeiros fundamentos para esta armação complexa da estrutura cognitiva do sujeito, que precisa tecer para construir os fortes pontos de amarração com o tecido social, fornecendo as linhas de fixação do sujeito com o mundo.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: A apendicite aguda é a doença cirúrgica não-obstétrica mais comum da gravidez e pode ocorrer em qualquer idade gestacional. O seu diagnóstico freqüentemente é tardio, o que pode acarretar alto índice de perfuração e complicações. O presente estudo visa apresentar os resultados da videolaparoscopia no tratamento da apendicite aguda na gravidez. MÉTODO: São analisados retrospectivamente quatro casos de pacientes com suspeita de apendicite aguda avaliadas em serviço de cirurgia de urgência e submetidas à cirurgia videolaparoscópica no segundo trimestre da gestação. RESULTADOS: A videolaparoscopia confirmou o diagnóstico de apendicite aguda em três casos e o outro tratava-se de cisto ovariano roto. Todas foram tratadas pelo método laparoscópico, sem necessidade de conversão, e receberam alta hospitalar em cerca de 72 horas. Não houve complicações pós-operatórias. As pacientes foram acompanhadas no restante da gestação, e os partos ocorreram na data prevista, sem complicações maternas ou para os recém-nascidos. CONCLUSÃO: A apendicectomia laparoscópica na gravidez revelou-se um procedimento seguro, que possibilita uma recuperação pós-operatória mais rápida e sem evidências de que interfira com o curso da gestação. Entretanto, estudos com maior número de casos são necessários para estabelecer o seu real valor.

  8. Direct Reactions with MoNA-LISA

    Kuchera, Anthony

    2016-03-01

    Nuclear reactions can be used to probe the structure of nuclei. Direct reactions, which take place on short time scales, are well-suited for experiments with beams of short-lived nuclei. One such reaction is nucleon knockout where a proton or neutron is removed from the incoming beam from the interaction with a target. Single nucleon knockout reactions have been used to study the single-particle nature of nuclear wave functions. A recent experiment at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory was performed to measure cross sections from single nucleon knockout reactions for several p-shell nuclei. Detection of the residual nucleus in coincidence with any gamma rays emitted from the target allowed cross sections to ground and excited states to be measured. Together with input from reaction theory, ab initio structure theories can be tested. Simultaneously the accuracy of knockout reaction models can be validated by detecting the knocked out neutron with the Modular Neutron Array and Large multi-Institutional Scintillator Array (MoNA-LISA). Preliminary results from this experiment will be shown. Knockout reactions can also be used to populate nuclei which are neutron unbound, thus emit neutrons nearly instantaneously. The structure of these nuclei, therefore, cannot be probed with gamma ray spectroscopy. However, with large neutron detectors like MoNA-LISA the properties of these short-lived nuclei are able to be measured. Recent results using MoNA-LISA to study the structure of neutron-rich nuclei will be presented. The author would like to acknowledge support from the NNSA and NSF.

  20. Effects of non-uniform root zone salinity on water use, Na+ recirculation, and Na+ and H+ flux in cotton

    2012-01-01

    A new split-root system was established through grafting to study cotton response to non-uniform salinity. Each root half was treated with either uniform (100/100 mM) or non-uniform NaCl concentrations (0/200 and 50/150 mM). In contrast to uniform control, non-uniform salinity treatment improved plant growth and water use, with more water absorbed from the non- and low salinity side. Non-uniform treatments decreased Na+ concentrations in leaves. The [Na+] in the ‘0’ side roots of the 0/200 treatment was significantly higher than that in either side of the 0/0 control, but greatly decreased when the ‘0’ side phloem was girdled, suggesting that the increased [Na+] in the ‘0’ side roots was possibly due to transportation of foliar Na+ to roots through phloem. Plants under non-uniform salinity extruded more Na+ from the root than those under uniform salinity. Root Na+ efflux in the low salinity side was greatly enhanced by the higher salinity side. NaCl-induced Na+ efflux and H+ influx were inhibited by amiloride and sodium orthovanadate, suggesting that root Na+ extrusion was probably due to active Na+/H+ antiport across the plasma membrane. Improved plant growth under non-uniform salinity was thus attributed to increased water use, reduced leaf Na+ concentration, transport of excessive foliar Na+ to the low salinity side, and enhanced Na+ efflux from the low salinity root.

  1. Apical Na+ permeability of frog skin during serosal Cl- replacement.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Leibowich, S; DeLong, J; Civan, M M

    1988-05-01

    Gluconate substitution for serosal Cl- reduces the transepithelial short-circuit current (Isc) and depolarizes short-circuited frog skins. These effects could result either from inhibition of basolateral K+ conductance, or from two actions to inhibit both apical Na+ permeability (PapNa) and basolateral pump activity. We have addressed this question by studying whole-and split-thickness frog skins. Intracellular Na+ concentration (CcNa) and PapNa have been monitored by measuring the current-voltage relationship for apical Na+ entry. This analysis was conducted by applying trains of voltage pulses, with pulse durations of 16 to 32 msec. Estimates of PapNa and CcNa were not detectably dependent on pulse duration over the range 16 to 80 msec. Serosal Cl- replacement uniformly depolarized short-circuited tissues. The depolarization was associated with inhibition of Isc across each split skin, but only occasionally across the whole-thickness preparations. This difference may reflect the better ionic exchange between the bulk medium and the extracellular fluid in contact with the basolateral membranes, following removal of the underlying dermis in the split-skin preparations. PapNa was either unchanged or increased, and CcNa either unchanged or reduced after the anionic replacement. These data are incompatible with the concept that serosal Cl- replacement inhibits PapNa and Na,K-pump activity. Gluconate substitution likely reduces cell volume, triggering inhibition of the basolateral K+ channels, consistent with the data and conclusions of S.A. Lewis, A.G. Butt, M.J. Bowler, J.P. Leader and A.D.C. Macknight (J. Membrane Biol. 83:119-137, 1985) for toad bladder. The resulting depolarization reduces the electrical force favoring apical Na+ entry. The volume-conductance coupling serves to conserve volume by reducing K+ solute loss. Its molecular basis remains to be identified.

    The NA60 experiment takes place at the SPS at CERN, to study the production of open charm and prompt dimuons in collisions induced by proton and heavy ion beams on nuclear targets. For this task, several novel detector systems were added to the dimuon spectrometer and zero-degree calorimeter, which were previously used in the NA50 experiment. The main upgrade is a new silicon pixel vertex spectrometer. It tracks the charged particles that are produced through the collisions in the target and allows us to match their trajectories and momenta with those of the muons that are measured behind the hadron absorber in the muon spectrometer. Besides improving considerably the dimuon mass resolution, the vertex telescope measures the offset of each muon track with respect to the interaction point. This allows us to select events where charm mesons were produced. We present in this article first results from dimuon data that were acquired in Summer 2002 with a 400 GeV proton beam. A silicon microstrip telescope was use...

    Full Text Available Este trabalho foi realizado com a finalidade de estabelecer relações entre os princípios éticos da autonomia e vulnerabilidade e a vida de adolescentes, pessoas reconhecidamente passíveis de síndromes depressivas, uso abusivo de drogas ilícitas, alcoolismo e tabagismo. Famílias desestruturadas, pais ausentes, companhia de amigos que levam a diferentes vícios, facilidade de acesso a fontes desencontradas de informações e uma sociedade indiferente afetam o desenvolvimento normal dos jovens. Considera-se, ainda, o grande desafio apresentado a profissionais de saúde em agir na busca de reduzir a vulnerabilidade dos adolescentes e permitir que os mesmo usem de autonomia com responsabilidade na tomada de decisões em suas vidas pessoais. O cuidado com os mesmos deve ser mais integral e ativo e a sociedade ainda não reconheceu adequadamente a importância de cuidar do desenvolvimento saudável desse imenso contingente humano.

    The NA60 experiment studies the production of open charm and prompt dimuons in proton-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus collisions at the CERN SPS. To access the kinematics of charged particles already at the vertex level, a radiation tolerant silicon pixel detector has been placed in a 2.5T magnetic field near the target. This vertex spectrometer was built from 96 ALICE1LHCB pixel chips arranged in 12 tracking planes. The vertex spectrometer was successfully operated in a run with a 158GeV/nucleon indium ion beam incident on indium targets in October-November 2003. During the five-week-long run it was exposed to high levels of radiation distributed inhomogeneously over the detector. The most exposed regions of the silicon sensors underwent type inversion. With only a fraction of the total statistics analysed, the vertex spectrometer can already be seen to have dramatically enhanced the physics performance of NA60 with respect to that of its predecessors1).

    Full Text Available A gastronomia, além de ter importante relação com a economia, é uma forma expressiva da cultura dos indivíduos, desde o tipo de alimentos cultivados até a maneira de seu preparo e consumo. O presente artigo propõe-se a analisar a relação entre o enoturismo – centralizado na existência do vinho enquanto elemento gastronômico – e o fenômeno da pluriatividade na agricultura familiar, vista nos últimos anos como alternativa positiva para sua reprodução econômica e social. O fluxo turístico em regiões vitivinícolas gera novas oportunidades de trabalho e faz com que agricultores e suas famílias dividam a mão de obra agrícola, até então direcionada ao cultivo da uva e outros alimentos para subsistência, com atividades não agrícolas – como o artesanato, o acolhimento de visitantes em pousadas, a atuação em restaurantes, entre outras – como chance de subsistência. Este panorama transforma as realidades do mundo rural, alterando a relação do agricultor com a produção de alimentos e a forma como o mesmo os utiliza, além de reestruturar o ambiente sociocultural no seu entorno.

    Recent advances in our understanding of voltage-gated sodium channels (NaVs) lead to the rational hypothesis that drugs capable of selective blockade of NaV subtypes may be a safe and effective strategy for the treatment of unwanted cough. Among the nine NaV subtypes (NaV1.1–NaV1.9), the afferent nerves involved in initiating cough, in common with nociceptive neurons in the somatosensory system, express mainly NaV1.7, NaV1.8, and NaV1.9.

  13. Coordinated regulation of cardiac Na(+)/Ca (2+) exchanger and Na (+)-K (+)-ATPase by phospholemman (FXYD1).

    Phospholemman (PLM) is the founding member of the FXYD family of regulators of ion transport. PLM is a 72-amino acid protein consisting of the signature PFXYD motif in the extracellular N terminus, a single transmembrane (TM) domain, and a C-terminal cytoplasmic tail containing three phosphorylation sites. In the heart, PLM co-localizes and co-immunoprecipitates with Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase, Na(+)/Ca(2+) exchanger, and L-type Ca(2+) channel. The TM domain of PLM interacts with TM9 of the α-subunit of Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase, while its cytoplasmic tail interacts with two small regions (spanning residues 248-252 and 300-304) of the proximal intracellular loop of Na(+)/Ca(2+) exchanger. Under stress, catecholamine stimulation phosphorylates PLM at serine(68), resulting in relief of inhibition of Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase by decreasing K(m) for Na(+) and increasing V(max), and simultaneous inhibition of Na(+)/Ca(2+) exchanger. Enhanced Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase activity lowers intracellular Na(+), thereby minimizing Ca(2+) overload and risks of arrhythmias. Inhibition of Na(+)/Ca(2+) exchanger reduces Ca(2+) efflux, thereby preserving contractility. Thus, the coordinated actions of PLM during stress serve to minimize arrhythmogenesis and maintain inotropy. In acute cardiac ischemia and chronic heart failure, either expression or phosphorylation of PLM or both are altered. PLM regulates important ion transporters in the heart and offers a tempting target for development of drugs to treat heart failure.

  14. Na emission and bubble instability in single-bubble sonoluminescence.

    Na emission in single-bubble sonoluminescence (SBSL) was observed from 0.1mM sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) solution containing a dissolved noble gas at a low acoustic pressure, at which a continuous spectral component was negligible. High-speed shadowgraph movies were captured at a frame rate of 30,000fps, which indicated that bubble dancing is responsible for the Na emission. The measured bubble path length was well correlated with the Na intensity. The disintegration of a daughter bubble followed by immediate coalescence was frequently observed, which may have been the cause of the bubble dancing. A comparison of the Na spectra obtained in SBSL and multibubble SL showed that the conditions under which Na emission is generated are twofold. A narrow component was observed in the Na spectrum in SBSL, while narrow and broad components were observed in MBSL. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

  15. The transported entropy of Na+ in solid state cryolite

    The transported entropy of Na+ in mixtures of NaF (s) and Na3AlF6 (s) is determined from thermocell experiments. The experiments were favorably described by the electric work method. The variation observed in the thermocell electromotive force (emf) with composition can be explained from the probable path of charge transfer in the electrolyte. The transported entropies are S*cry Na+ = 140 ± 7 J K-1 mol-1 for cryolite and S*NaFNa+ = 81 ± 8 J K-1 mol-1 for sodium fluoride between 380 °C and 500 °C. The value obtained for sodium in the solid cryolite makes us predict that the transported entropy for Na+ in the molten electrolyte mixture for aluminum production is substantial and that the reversible heat effects in the aluminum electrolysis cell are the same.

  16. Regulation of hamster sperm hyperactivation by extracellular Na.

    Mammalian sperm motility has to be hyperactivated to be fertilization-competent. Hyperactivation is regulated by extracellular environment. Osmolality of mammalian semen is higher than that in female reproductive tract; however, the effect of them on hyperactivation has not been investigated. So we investigated the effect of osmotic environment on hyperactivation using hamster spermatozoa at first. Increase in the osmolality of the media (∼370 mOsm) by increasing the concentration of NaCl (∼150 mmol/L) caused the delay of the expression of hyperactivation. When NaCl concentration varied in the same range (75-150 mmol/L) whereas the osmolality was fixed at 370 mOsm by adding mannitol, the delay of hyperactivation occurred dependent on NaCl concentration. Increase in NaCl concentration also caused suppression of curvilinear velocity, bend angle, and sliding velocity of the flagellum at the onset of incubation, suggesting that NaCl concentration affect both activation and hyperactivation in hamster spermatozoa. Hamster sperm intracellular Ca(2+) concentration decreased as extracellular NaCl concentration increased, whereas membrane potential and intracellular pH were unaffected by extracellular NaCl concentration. SN-6 and SEA0400, inhibitors of Na(+)-Ca(2+) exchanger (NCX), increased intracellular Ca(2+) and accelerated hyperactivation in the presence of 150 mmol/L NaCl. Tyrosine phosphorylation on fibrous sheath proteins was unaffected by extracellular NaCl concentration. These results suggest that extracellular Na(+) suppresses hamster sperm hyperactivation by reducing intracellular Ca(2+) via an action of NCX in a tyrosine phosphorylation-independent manner. It seems that the removal of suppression by extracellular Na(+) leads to the expression of hyperactivated motility. © 2016 Society for Reproduction and Fertility.

    Homology modeling and valence mapping have been used to predict the location and structure of Na(+) and K(+) binding sites in the Na(+)-K(+)-ATPase on the basis of the known atomic resolution structure of SERCA. Additional sites are predicted that may be associated with intracellular access and extracellular egress pathways for Na(+). The model predictions are in excellent agreement with previous structure-function and electrical studies.

  2. Kinetic properties and Na+ dependence of rheogenic Na(+)-HCO3- co-transport in frog retinal pigment epithelium.

    la Cour, M

    1991-01-01

    1. Na(+)-HCO3- co-transport across the retinal membrane of the frog retinal pigment epithelium was studied by means of double-barrelled pH-selective microelectrodes. Transient changes in the intracellular pH were monitored in response to abrupt changes in the Na+ concentration on the retinal side of the epithelium. 2. The experiments were performed as follows. The Na(+)-HCO3- co-transport was inhibited by perfusing the retinal side of the epithelium with a Na(+)-free solution. The co-transport was then stimulated by changing the perfusate from the Na(+)-free solution to a solution which contained from 5 to 110 mM-Na+. The resulting inward Na(+)-HCO3- co-transport produced an intracellular alkalinization, the initial rate of which was used to calculate the initial rate of Na(+)-HCO3- co-transport, JHCO3-. 3. The Na+ dependence of the Na(+)-HCO3- co-transport was studied at two different values of extracellular pH (7.40 and 7.10), at constant extracellular HCO3- concentration (27.5 mM) and at two different extracellular HCO3- concentrations (27.5 mM and 55 mM) at constant extracellular pH (7.40). In these experiments, the calculated values of JHCO3- followed single Michaelis-Menten kinetics with respect to the extracellular Na+ concentration. 4. The data are consistent with a model in which the co-transporter has a single binding site for the Na+ ion with an apparent affinity constant (apparent Km) of 37 mM. The apparent affinity constant for Na+ was independent of the extracellular concentration of CO3(2-) in the range of 16-65 microM, and of the extracellular HCO3- concentration in the range 27.5-55 mM. 5. The NaCO3- ion-pair hypothesis, in which sodium binds to the co-transporter and is translocated across the cell membrane as the NaCO3- ion pair, was analysed. For stoichiometries 1:2 and 1:3 of the Na(+)-HCO3- co-transport, the NaCO3- ion-pair hypothesis was found incompatible with the data. 6.

    Kaolin geopolymers were produced by the alkali-activation of kaolin with an activator solution (a mixture of NaOH and sodium silicate solutions). The NaOH solution was prepared at a concentration of 6-14 mol/L and was mixed with the sodium silicate solution at a Na2SiO3/NaOH mass ratio of 0.24 to prepare an activator solution. The kaolin-to-activator solution mass ratio used was 0.80. This paper aimed to analyze the effect of NaOH concentration on the compressive strength of kaolin geopolymers at 80°C for 1, 2, and 3 d. Kaolin geopolymers were stable in water, and strength results showed that the kaolin binder had adequate compressive strength with 12 mol/L of NaOH concentration. When the NaOH concentration increased, the SiO2/Na2O decreased. The increased Na2O content enhanced the dissolution of kaolin as shown in X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) analyses. However, excess in this content was not beneficial for the strength development of kaolin geopolymers. In addition, there was the formation of more geopolymeric gel in 12 mol/L samples. The XRD pattern of the samples showed a higher amorphous content and a more geopolymer bonding existed as proved by FTIR analysis.

    Full Text Available Phase and size of lanthanide-doped nanoparticles are the most important characteristics that dictate optical properties of these nanoparticles and affect their technological applications. Herein, we present a systematic study to examine the effect of alkaline earth doping on the formation of NaYF4 upconversion nanoparticles. We show that alkaline earth doping has a dual function of tuning particle size of hexagonal phase NaYF4 nanoparticles and stabilizing cubic phase NaYF4 nanoparticles depending on composition and concentration of the dopant ions. The study described here represents a facile and general strategy to tuning the properties of NaYF4 upconversion nanoparticles.

    Full Text Available A noção de afeto está no campo do (desprazer, resultante de uma experiência afetiva de satisfação ou insatisfação, e que se manifesta nas necessidades do sujeito. Pode-se dizer que o afeto envolve a ambivalência de sentimentos, do mais agradável ao mais insuportável, e desempenha um papel estruturante para que o sujeito reencontre sua estrutura psíquica, exercendo uma ação mediadora e decisiva sobre a constituição do sujeito do desejo, orientando o seu projeto de vida, sua profissão, sua opção sexual, etc. Essa ambivalência de afetos deve ser exercitada na educação familiar e escolar, na fala e na escuta que o afeto (desprazeroso tem relevância e parece ser silenciado. O desprazer pode ser escandido pelos sintomas medo, depressão, irritabilidade, ansiedade, humilhação. Assim posto o bullying é também conhecido como a síndrome da humilhação. O objetivo da humilhação é a tentativa de destruição do sujeito; a perda da identificação revela um fantasma, na medida em que própria vítima se sente culpada por sofrer ou por estar sofrendo um ato esburacado porque uma das peças não é encontrada e, em lugar do encaixe, o que se mostra é um buraco, o que provoca a angústia entre quem perde e aquele que ganha.

    In contrast to the detailed investigations on the dosimetric electron trap in feldspar only little has been done to understand the luminescence centers. We use a comparison of multiple spectroscopic techniques, site selective photoluminescence spectroscopy and time resolved measurements to further...... our understanding of the luminescence mechanisms and recombination sites, in a sample of Na rich plagioclase feldspar (oligoclase). Both the UV and violet–blue emissions show resonant excitations arising from a distribution of energy levels. We propose, contrary to the general understanding......, that the green emission may not arise from Mn2+ in our sample and that photoionisation of this centre may be possible by excitation to the band tail states. The deep red emission is tied to the Fe3+, and the exponential rise in the UV excitation efficiency of this centre is discussed in the context of the band...

    Full Text Available Lung cancer is a leading cause of global cancer deaths. Na/K-ATPase has been studied as a target for cancer treatment. Cardiotonic steroids (CS trigger intracellular signalling upon binding to Na/K-ATPase. Normal lung and tumour cells frequently express different pump isoforms. Thus, Na/K-ATPase is a powerful target for lung cancer treatment. Drugs targeting Na/K-ATPase may induce apoptosis and autophagy in transformed cells. We argue that Na/K-ATPase has a role as a potential target in chemotherapy in lung cancer treatment. We discuss the effects of Na/K-ATPase ligands and molecular pathways inducing deleterious effects on lung cancer cells, especially those leading to apoptosis and autophagy.

    The dark matter interpretation of the DAMA modulation signal depends on the NaI(Tl) scintillation efficiency of nuclear recoils. Previous measurements for Na recoils have large discrepancies, especially in the DAMA/LIBRA modulation energy region. We report a quenching effect measurement of Na recoils in NaI(Tl) from 3 to 52 keVnr, covering the whole DAMA/LIBRA energy region for dark matter-Na scattering interpretations. By using a low-energy, pulsed neutron beam, a double time-of-flight technique, and pulse-shape discrimination methods, we obtained the most accurate measurement of this kind for NaI(Tl) to date. The results differ significantly from the DAMA reported values at low energies but fall between the other previous measurements. We present the implications of the new quenching results for the dark matter interpretation of the DAMA modulation signal.

    The streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat was used to test the hypothesis that Na/sup +/-H/sup +/ exchange activity in the proximal tubule luminal membrane would be increased in association with renal hypertrophy, altered glomerular hemodynamics, enhanced filtered load and tubular reabsorption of /sup 22/Na/sup +/, and stimulated /sup 22/Na= pump activity in the basolateral membrane, previously reported characteristics of this experimental animal model. Amiloride-sensitive H/sup +/ gradient-dependent Na/sup +/ uptake and Na/sup +/ gradient-dependent H/sup +/ flux were increased in brush-border membrane vesicles from the streptozotocin-treated animals. Na/sup +/ gradient-dependent uptakes of phosphate, D-glucose, L-proline, and myoinositol were decreased in the drug-induced diabetic animals. These membrane transport alterations were not found when the streptozotocin-diabetic animals were treated with insulin.

    MESSENGER entered orbit about Mercury on March 18, 2011. Since then, the Ultraviolet and Visible Spectrometer (UWS) channel of MESSENGER's Mercury Atmospheric and Surface Composition Spectrometer (MASCS) has been observing Mercury's exosphere nearly continuously. Daily measurements of Na brightness were fitted with non-uniform exospheric models. With Monte Carlo sampling we traced the trajectories of a representative number of test particles, generally one million per run per source process, until photoionization, escape from the gravitational well, or permanent sticking at the surface removed the atom from the simulation. Atoms were assumed to partially thermally accommodate on each encounter with the surface with accommodation coefficient 0.25. Runs for different assumed source processes are run separately, scaled and co-added. Once these model results were saved onto a 3D grid, we ran lines of sight from the MESSENGER spacecraft :0 infinity using the SPICE kernels and we computed brightness integrals. Note that only particles that contribute to the measurement can be constrained with our method. Atoms and molecules produced on the nightside must escape the shadow in order to scatter light if the excitation process is resonant-light scattering, as assumed here. The aggregate distribution of Na atoms fits a 1200 K gas, with a PSD distribution, along with a hotter component. Our models constrain the hot component, assumed to be impact vaporization, to be emitted with a 2500 K Maxwellian. Most orbits show a dawnside enhancement in the hot component broadly spread over the leading hemisphere. However, on some dates there is no dawn/dusk asymmetry. The portion of the hot/cold source appears to be highly variable.

    Persistent tetrodotoxin-resistant (TTX-r) sodium currents up-regulated by intracellular GTP have been invoked as the site of action of peripheral inflammatory mediators that lower pain thresholds, and ascribed to the Na(V)1.9 sodium channel. Here we describe the properties of a global knock-out of Na(V)1.9 produced by replacing exons 4 and 5 in SCN11A with a neomycin resistance cassette, deleting the domain 1 voltage sensor and introducing a frameshift mutation. Recordings from small (channel loss eliminates a TTX-r persistent current. Intracellular dialysis of GTP-gamma-S did not cause an up-regulation of persistent Na(+) current in Na(V)1.9-null neurones and the concomitant negative shift in voltage-threshold seen in wild-type and heterozygous neurones. Heterologous hNa(V)1.9 expression in Na(V)1.9 knock-out sensory neurones confirms that the human clone can restore the persistent Na(+) current. Taken together, these findings demonstrate that Na(V)1.9 underlies the G-protein pathway-regulated TTX-r persistent Na(+) current in small diameter sensory neurones that may drive spontaneous discharge in nociceptive nerve fibres during inflammation.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: Advances in our knowledge of mental disorder (MD genetics have contributed to a better understanding of their pathophysiology. Nonetheless, several questions and doubts persist. Recent studies have focused on environmental influences in the development of MDs, and the advent of neuroscientific methodologies has provided new perspectives. Early life events, such as childhood stress, may affect neurodevelopment through mechanisms such as gene-environment interactions and epigenetic regulation, thus leading to diseases in adulthood. The aim of this paper is to review the evidence regarding the role of the environment, particularly childhood stress, in the pathophysiology of MD. METHODOLOGY: We reviewed articles that evaluated environmental influences, with a particular focus on childhood trauma, brain morphology, cognitive functions, and the development of psychopathology and MD. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: MRI studies have shown that exposure to trauma at an early age can result in several neurostructural changes, such as the reduction of the hippocampus and corpus callosum. Cognitive performance and functioning are also altered in this population. Finally, childhood stress is related to an increased risk of developing MD such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and substance abuse. We conclude that there is robust evidence of the role of the environment, specifically adverse childhood experiences, in various aspects of MD.OBJETIVO: Avanços no conhecimento da genética dos transtornos mentais (TM contribuíram para um melhor entendimento de suas bases fisiopatológicas.

  16. Sliding wear behaviour of steel carburized using Na2CO3-NaCl

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Experiments have been carried out to investigate the effect of carburization process on the sliding wear resistance of mild steel. The carburization process was conducted in carbonate salts mixtures of Na2CO3-NaCl. Carburization followed by water quenching resulted in the formation of martensite with a hardness of 900 HV in the subsurface, up to the depth of 400 μm. This hardness value was substantially higher than the non-carburized steel which had a hardness of 520 HV. In the initial stage of sliding in air, abrasive wear and cluster of fine cavities due to adhesion were formed. This was followed by the formation of large-scale fracture at the cavities. The high hardness of the carburized steel reduced the severity of adhesive wear and thus the tendency of the worn surface to fracture.

    2005-06-01

    Full Text Available Neste artigo, analiso o surgimento e a superação do Platonismo em B. Russell, tanto na sua filosofia da matemática como na sua metafísica. Começo por explicitar os argumentos que levaram Russell a aderir ao chamado "Platonismo Proposicional" - posição que será tecnicamente relevante na definição de números. Na seção seguinte, discutirei até que ponto a teoria das descrições definidas determina, necessariamente, uma adesão ao nominalismo, e as dificuldades que surgem para o logicismo conseqüentes do abandono do platonismo. Finalmente, mostrarei como a posição madura de Russell caracteriza-se mais como um reducionismo do que propriamente como um nominalismo, e como este é fundado no princípio do mínimo vocabulário.In this paper, I analyze the emergence and the overcoming of Platonism both in Russell's philosophy of mathematics and his metaphysics. I begin by examining the arguments which led Russell to endorse a position that I term "Propositional Platonism" - this position proves to be relevant for Russell's definition of numbers. In the following section, I address the question of the extent to which Russell's theory of descriptions implies the acceptance of nominalism. Moreover, I examine the difficulties which arise for logicism, if it no longer goes hand in hand with platonism. Finally, I argue argue that Russell's mature position is to be characterized as a form of reductionism rather than as a variant of nominalism

  19. Na+/myo-inositol symporters and Na+/H+-antiport in Mesembryanthemum crystallinum.

    2000-11-01

    Mitr1 and Mitr2 from Mesembryanthemum crystallinum (common ice plant) are members of a family of genes homologous to H+[or Na+]/myo-inositol symporters (ITRs), not previously studied in plants. MITR1 complemented an Itr1-deficient yeast strain. Mitr1 is strongly expressed in roots, moderately in stems, and weakly in leaves. Its transcripts increased in all organs, most dramatically in roots, under salinity stress. Mitr2 constitutes a rare transcript, slightly upregulated by salt stress in leaves only. Mitr1 transcripts are present in all cells in the root tip, but become restricted to phloem-associated cells in mature roots. Peptide antibodies against the two proteins indicated the presence of MITR1 in all organs and of MITR2 in leaves. Both are located in the tonoplast. MITR1 acts in removing sodium from root vacuoles, correlated with findings of low root sodium, while leaf vacuoles accumulate sodium in the ice plant. Up-regulation in leaves and stems is also found for Na+/H+-antiporter (Nhx-type) transcripts. Under comparable stress conditions, Nhx-and Itr-like transcripts in Arabidopsis were regulated differently. In the ice plant, co-ordinate induction of Na+/H+-antiporters and Na+/myo-inositol symporters transfers sodium from vacuoles in root cells into the leaf mesophyll as a halophytic strategy that lowers the osmotic potential. The tissue-specific differential expression of Itr- and Nhx-type transcripts suggests that the vacuolar sodium/inositol symporters function to reduce sodium amounts in cells of the root and vascular tissue, while sodium/proton antiporters in leaf tissues function to partition sodium into vacuoles for storage.

    Krokinobacter eikastus rhodopsin 2 (KR2) is the first light-driven Na(+) pump discovered, and is viewed as a potential next-generation optogenetics tool. Since the positively charged Schiff base proton, located within the ion-conducting pathway of all light-driven ion pumps, was thought to prohibit the transport of a non-proton cation, the discovery of KR2 raised the question of how it achieves Na(+) transport. Here we present crystal structures of KR2 under neutral and acidic conditions, which represent the resting and M-like intermediate states, respectively. Structural and spectroscopic analyses revealed the gating mechanism, whereby the flipping of Asp116 sequesters the Schiff base proton from the conducting pathway to facilitate Na(+) transport. Together with the structure-based engineering of the first light-driven K(+) pumps, electrophysiological assays in mammalian neurons and behavioural assays in a nematode, our studies reveal the molecular basis for light-driven non-proton cation pumps and thus provide a framework that may advance the development of next-generation optogenetics.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é discutir a cultura dos alunos, com ênfase na pré-escola e nos primeiros anos do Ensino Fundamental ("escola primária". As escassas teorizações sobre o assunto mostram limitações, na medida em que recaem sobre os alunos das últimas séries do Ensino Fundamental ou sobre o Ensino Médio, ou seja, sobre os adolescentes como grupo etário. A partir de dados de pesquisa de campo e de estudos teóricos, identificamos que a cultura dos alunos é uma cultura intraescolar, que se concretiza na intersecção entre a cultura infantil e a cultura escolar, com diferentes níveis de proximidade e distanciamento entre elas. Ela envolve comportamentos estratégicos infantis de oposição e de resistência às tarefas e ao poder docente. Quando a escola recusa o acolhimento da cultura infantil, esta se produz nos interstícios das atividades escolares, por vezes de maneira conflituosa.

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available Neste ensaio defende-se o argumento de que a configuração cronotópica potencializa a obra literária como forma metafórica para experimentar a vida cotidiana. Esse argumento apoia-se nas declarações em que Bakhtin destacou que a organização de processos psicológicos de personagens no enredo está relacionada com a experiência da unidade tempo-espaço, conceitualmente denominada de cronotopo. Para exemplificar essas questões desenvolveu-se aqui uma análise da configuração cronotópica do autor-personagem no Livro do desassossego de Fernando Pessoa. A dificuldade do autor-personagem para negociar as posições de figura e fundo no seu pensamento refletiu uma experiência de fronteira específica, revelada na frequente associação de termos antagônicos e uso frequente de neologismos. Percebendo o funcionamento cronotópico da narrativa, discute-se o potencial da literatura na provisão de metáforas para vida real. Nessas considerações chamou-se a atenção para a participação do leitor na constituição do cronotopo e da obra.

  15. Transepithelial Na+ transport and the intracellular fluids: a computer study.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Civan, M M; Bookman, R J

    1982-01-01

    Computer simulations of tight epithelia under three experimental conditions have been carried out, using the rheogenic nonlinear model of Lew, Ferreira and Moura (Proc. Roy. Soc. London. B 206:53-83, 1979) based largely on the formulation of Koefoed-Johnsen and Ussing (Acta Physiol. Scand. 42: 298-308. 1958). First, analysis of the transition between the short-circuited and open-circuited states has indicated that (i) apical Cl- permeability is a critical parameter requiring experimental definition in order to analyze cell volume regulation, and (ii) contrary to certain experimental reports, intracellular Na+ concentration (ccNa) is expected to be a strong function of transepithelial clamping voltage. Second, analysis of the effects of lowering serosal K+ concentration (csK) indicates that the basic model cannot simulate several well-documented observations; these defects can be overcome, at least qualitatively, by modifying the model to take account of the negative feedback interaction likely to exist between the apical Na+ permeability and ccNa. Third, analysis of the strongly supports the concept that osmotically induced permeability changes in the apical intercellular junctions play a physiological role in conserving the body's stores of NaCl. The analyses also demonstrate that the importance of Na+ entry across the basolateral membrane is strongly dependent upon transepithelial potential, cmNa and csK; under certain conditions, net Na+ entry could be appreciably greater across the basolateral than across the apical membrane.

    Full Text Available Geopolymer is a natural adhesive material which can be developed as a substitute for cement. The natural ingredients which want to use should contain silica and alumina. This paper uses bagasse ash as a basic material of mortar geopolymer. As an adhesive, the bagasse ash should be mixed with water and another activator alkali such as sodium hydroxide (NaOH and sodium silicate (Na2SiO3. The NaOHs molarity variation are 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16 M with Na2SiO3/NaOH = 1,0 sand/bagasse ash = 2,75 and activator/bagasse ash = 0,42. This research use 50 × 50 × 50 mm cube sized specimen and conduct a compressive strength test with 3, 7, 14, 21 and 28 days. The fresh mortar test result showed that the use of NaOHs molarity variation influences the slump value and time setting. The bigger NaOH molarity variation that been used, the smaller slump value. But, the time setting is increased. While the result for density and compressive strength shown that the bigger NaOH molarity variation, the bigger density and the compressive strength. Maximum compressive strength resulted from the mixture of mortar geopolymer with 16 M concentration.

  17. Unidirectional Flux Balance of Monovalent Ions in Cells with Na/Na and Li/Na Exchange: Experimental and Computational Studies on Lymphoid U937 Cells.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Igor A Vereninov

    Full Text Available Monovalent ion traffic across the cell membrane occurs via various pathways. Evaluation of individual fluxes in whole cell is hampered by their strong interdependence. This difficulty can be overcome by computational analysis of the whole cell flux balance. However, the previous computational studies disregarded ion movement of the self-exchange type. We have taken this exchange into account. The developed software allows determination of unidirectional fluxes of all monovalent ions via the major pathways both under the balanced state and during transient processes. We show how the problem of finding the rate coefficients can be solved by measurement of monovalent ion concentrations and some of the fluxes. Interdependence of fluxes due to the mandatory conditions of electroneutrality and osmotic balance and due to specific effects can be discriminated, enabling one to identify specific changes in ion transfer machinery under varied conditions. To test the effectiveness of the developed approach we made use of the fact that Li/Na exchange is known to be an analogue of the coupled Na/Na exchange. Thus, we compared the predicted and experimental data obtained on U937 cells under varied Li+ concentrations and following inhibition of the sodium pump with ouabain. We found that the coupled Na/Na exchange in U937 cells comprises a significant portion of the entire Na+ turnover. The data showed that the loading of the sodium pump by Li/Na exchange involved in the secondary active Li+ transport at 1-10 mM external Li+ is small. This result may be extrapolated to similar Li+ and Na+ flux relationships in erythrocytes and other cells in patients treated with Li+ in therapeutic doses. The developed computational approach is applicable for studying various cells and can be useful in education for demonstrating the effects of individual transporters and channels on ion gradients, cell water content and membrane potential.

    Molecular dynamics simulations of the dissociation of methane hydrate in aqueous NaCl solutions are performed. It is shown that the dissociation of the hydrate is accelerated by the formation of methane bubbles both in NaCl solutions and in pure water. We find two significant effects on the kinetics of the hydrate dissociation by NaCl. One is slowing down in an early stage before bubble formation, and another is swift bubble formation that enhances the dissociation. These effects arise from the low solubility of methane in NaCl solution, which gives rise to a nonuniform spatial distribution of solvated methane in the aqueous phase. We also demonstrate that bubbles form near the hydrate interface in dense NaCl solutions and that the hydrate dissociation proceeds inhomogeneously due to the bubbles.

    NA62 is a fixed target experiment located at the CERN SPS which aims to perform flavour physics studies in the charged kaon sector with an unprecedented precision. Due to the abundance of kaon decays with a po in the final state, NA62 is also a perfect environment to measure the neutral pion characteristics. NA62 collected a large sample of charged kaon decays with a highly efficient trigger for decays into electrons in 2007. We report about the measurement of the po electromagnetic transition form factor slope parameter in the time-like region. Between 2008 and 2014 the NA62 apparatus underwent an intense upgrade phase to improve the physics sensitivity of the experiment to precisely measure the Br (K+ !p+n ¯ n). NA62 took data in pilot runs in 2014 and 2015 reaching the final designed beam intensity. The quality of data acquired in view of the final measurement is presented.

    NaYF4:Eu3+ core and NaYF4:Eu3+/NaYF4 core/shell nanocrystals (NCs) were synthesized via a wet chemical method. The transmission electron microscope photographs show that the core and core/shell nanoparticles are monodisperse and uniform NCs with average diameters of 22 and 26 nm respectively. The photoluminescence (PL) properties of the samples, including the PL excitation and emission spectra, and luminescent decay curves, are investigated in detail. The results show that the intensity of 5D2 emission relative to that of 5D0 is stronger in NaYF4:Eu3+/NaYF4 core/shell NCs than that in NaYF4:Eu3+ core NCs, and a longer decay lifetime of 5D2 is observed in core/shell samples. In addition, from the corrected emission spectra of 5D0, the 5D0 radiative lifetimes were calculated. These together with the measured decay lifetime of 5D0 emission give the intrinsic quantum yields of 5D0. The results were well interpreted by considering the surface effects.

    should avoid to evaluate them as better or worse.   Ariowie i Turańczycy. Poglądy Franciszka H. Duchińskiego na temat rasy i cywilizacji Tekst jest poświęcony teorii niesłowiańskiego pochodzenia Rosjan. Jej autor, Franciszek H. Duchiński (1816-1893, uzasadniał odmienność cywilizacyjną Rosjan ich innym od pozostałych ludów Europy pochodzeniem rasowym. Ono, jak uważał, zadecydowało o powstaniu funkcjonujących w opozycji dwóch cywilizacji: wschodniej, stworzonej poprzez pierwiastek mongolski, gdzie dominowało bezprawie i despotyzm, oraz zachodniej, powstałej jako wytwór ludów indoeuropejskich, które respektowały wolność i godność człowieka. Duchiński uzasadniał różnice między nimi w większym stopniu czynnikami zewnętrznymi i mentalnymi niż biologicznymi. Nie wartościował ras i cywilizacji, a pojęcia „rasa” nie definiował. Brak ścisłości w tym względzie był charakterystyczny dla XIX-wiecznego piśmiennictwa. Często stosowano zamiennie pojęcia „rasa”, „naród”, „plemię”, „szczep”. Nie uważano też za naganne hierarchizowania ras. Opinie Duchińskiego na temat azjatyckiej despotii nie odbiegały od powszechnie przyjętych w piśmiennictwie polskim XIX w. Dominujący w nim wątek stanowiło przekonanie o odmienności cywilizacyjnej Rosji i Europy i o trwałym pomiędzy nimi antagonizmie. Działalność Duchińskiego miała służyć uświadomieniu opinii zachodnioeuropejskiej zagrożenia jakie płynęło dla Europy ze strony cywilizacji wschodniej oraz roli Polski na przedmurzu chrześcijaństwa łacińskiego. Spostrzeżenia na temat antynomii wspomnianych cywilizacji są i dziś aktualne. Współcześni badacze problemu przeczą rzecz jasna związkom pomiędzy rasą i cywilizacją. Kładą za to nacisk na różnice w sferze wartości, wierzeń, instytucji i struktur społecznych, które decydują o tożsamości cywilizacyjnej. O ile więc można nie godzić się z argumentacją Duchińskiego, to w sferze

    Miniature persistent late Na+ currents in cardiomyocytes have been linked to arrhythmias and sudden death. The goals of this study are to establish a stable cell line expressing robust persistent cardiac Na+ currents and to test Class 1 antiarrhythmic drugs for selective action against resting and open states. After transient transfection of an inactivation-deficient human cardiac Na+ channel clone (hNav1.5-CW with L409C/A410W double mutations), transfected mammalian HEK293 cells were treated with 1 mg/ml G-418. Individual G-418-resistant colonies were isolated using glass cylinders. One colony with high expression of persistent Na+ currents was subjected to a second colony selection. Cells from this colony remained stable in expressing robust peak Na+ currents of 996 ± 173 pA/pF at +50 mV (n = 20). Persistent late Na+ currents in these cells were clearly visible during a 4-second depolarizing pulse albeit decayed slowly. This slow decay is likely due to slow inactivation of Na+ channels and could be largely eliminated by 5 μM batrachotoxin. Peak cardiac hNav1.5-CW Na+ currents were blocked by tetrodotoxin with an IC50 value of 2.27 ± 0.08 μM (n = 6). At clinic relevant concentrations, Class 1 antiarrhythmics are much more selective in blocking persistent late Na+ currents than their peak counterparts, with a selectivity ratio ranging from 80.6 (flecainide) to 3 (disopyramide). We conclude that (1) Class 1 antiarrhythmics differ widely in their resting- vs. open-channel selectivity, and (2) stably transfected HEK293 cells expressing large persistent hNav1.5-CW Na+ currents are suitable for studying as well as screening potent open-channel blockers.

    Full Text Available Baculovirus surface display has been employed as an excellent tools for presentation of foreign peptides and proteins on virus surface with native conformation, functions and immunogenicity. A baculovirus major envelope protein, gp64, or a capsid protein, vp39 are generally used as fusion partners for displaying of polypeptides on the surface of virions. Alternatively, a membrane anchoring domain of vesicular stomatitis virus G protein (VSV-G can also be used. In this study, an influenza neuraminidase (NA was proposed as a new membrane anchor for the display of Angiotensin II (AngII, DRVYIHPFHL, peptides. The AngII peptides were inserted into NA by replacing NA amino acid number 60-67 with AngII, and then integrated into a baculovirus genome. A recombinant baculovirus expressing the NA fusion-AngII peptides was generated from infected insect cells. Those peptides were found to express and translocated on the membrane of the baculovirus infected insect cell (Sf9 cell as detected by immunocytochemistry using anti-AngII monoclonal antibody. Upon budding of the recombinant baculovirus progenies through the insect cells membrane, the recombinant NA-AngII peptides was acquired to envelopes of the new baculovirus progenies. The conformation of NA on baculovirus surface was not affected by the deletion, as the 55 kDa band of NA can be detected from Western Blotting analysis by specific anti-NA monoclonal antibody. In addition, the same protein was also found by anti-AngII antibody indicating that the AngII peptides had been successfully fused with the recombinant NA. Interestingly, electron microscopy analysis demonstrated that not only the recombinant baculovirus displaying AngII peptides were generated by infected insect cells, but also the NA virus-like-particle displaying AngII peptides.

    2015-01-01

    We summarize the status for the CERN NA63 collaboration, where in 2015 we have had two runs at the CERN SPS, beamline H4: One with Ar ions at various energies around 75 GeV per nucleon, and one with electrons/positrons of 10-20 GeV. We previously refined and updated our theoretical analyses of bremsstrahlung and delta-electron emission from heavy, and medium-heavy, ultrarelativistic nuclei \\cite{Mikk15}. We thus concluded that - although not quite as interesting as for Pb projectiles - projectiles of Ar and/or Xe were suitable for the investigation, and for establishing the method to eventually measure the charge distribution of short-lived ($ct\\gtrsim3$m) fragments \\cite{Mikk14}. However, as the preliminary data analysis shows, the signal - which requires an intact projectile - is about three orders of magnitude lower than the background, stemming from photon emission (possibly originating from $\\pi^0$'s) in coincidence with projectiles that most likely are not intact after the collision. With the presently ...

    The GigaTracker is a hybrid silicon pixel detector built for the NA62 experiment aiming at measuring the branching fraction of the ultra-rare kaon decay K+→π+νν¯ at the CERN SPS. The detector has to track particles in a beam with a flux reaching 1.3 MHz/mm2 and provide single-hit timing with 200 ps RMS resolution for a total material budget of less than 0.5% X0 per station. The tracker comprises three 60.8 mm×27 mm stations installed in vacuum (∼10$^{−6}$mbar) and cooled with liquid C6F14 circulating through micro-channels etched inside a few hundred micron thick silicon plates. Each station is composed of a 200 μm thick silicon sensor read out by 2×5 custom 100 μm thick ASICs, called TDCPix. Each chip contains 40×45 asynchronous pixels, 300 μm×300 μm each and is instrumented with 100 ps bin time-to-digital converters. In order to cope with the high rate, the TDCPix is equipped with four 3.2 Gb/s serialisers sending out the data. We will describe the detector and the results from the 2014 an...

    Full Text Available Resumo Este artigo propõe uma análise do papel da sexualidade nas práticas da Wicca, religião neopagã surgida na Inglaterra entre 1940 e 1950. Atualmente, a Wicca é um movimento mundial multifacetado, que segue inúmeras vertentes. Esta pesquisa investiga concepções e práticas ligadas à sexualidade presentes entre grupos que praticam a Wicca publicamente em diversas capitais do Brasil. Esses grupos estão organizados em tradições (grupos religiosos com viés iniciático que comandam associações civis com fins de resguardar direitos e promover eventos públicos para divulgação e troca de conhecimento entre praticantes da religião. Os resultados do estudo mostram que a Wicca postula uma relação intrínseca entre sexualidade, espiritualidade e liberdade, sendo suas práticas herdeiras de movimentos intelectuais diversos, como o esoterismo, a contracultura e a filosofia oriental.

    The Institute of Gas Technology (IGT), under subcontract to M-C Power Corporation under DOE funding, has been operating bench-scale fuel cells to investigate the performance and endurance issues of the Li/Na electrolyte because it offers higher ionic conductivity, higher exchange current densities, lower vapor pressures, and lower cathode dissolution rates than the Li/K electrolyte. These cells have continued to show higher performance and lower decay rates than the Li/K cells since the publication of our two previous papers in 1994. In this paper, test results of two long-term 100-cm{sup 2} bench scale cells are discussed. One cell operated continuously at 160 mA/cm{sup 2} for 17,000 hours with reference gases (60H{sub 2}/20CO{sub 2}/20H{sub 2}O fuel at 75% utilization and 30CO{sub 2}/70 air oxidant humidified at room temperature at 50% utilization). The other cell operated at 160 mA/cm{sup 2} for 6900 hours at 3 atm with system gases (64H{sub 2}/16CO{sub 2}/20H{sub 2}O at 75% utilization and an M-C Power system-defined oxidant at 40% utilization). Both cells have shown the highest performance and longest endurance among IGT cells operated to date.

    Full Text Available A epilepsia é desordem crônica que ocorre principalmente na infância e adolescência. Tradicionalmente, o tratamento da epilepsia enfatiza aspectos neurológicos mais do que fatores psicológicos. A aten��ão voltada simplesmente para o controle das crises no contexto clínico pode não ser suficiente para entender a grande amplitude de problemas que afetam a qualidade de vida das crianças com epilepsia. Muitas das dificuldades psicossociais dos adultos com epilepsia desenvolvem-se a partir de complicações associadas ao início da doença. Crianças com epilepsia têm alta prevalência de problemas de comportamento e aprendizagem. Avaliar a qualidade de vida em crianças com epilepsia é importante, especialmente porque elas passam por períodos críticos de desenvolvimento, durante os quais são desenvolvidas habilidades cognitivas e sociais. A fim de instrumentalizar o profissional que atende crianças epilépticas, este estudo apresenta um inventário simplificado de qualidade de vida, no qual são abordados aspectos culturais, pessoais, sociais e relacionamento familiar e social. Esta investigação possibilita maior conhecimento sobre a criança e um melhor direcionamento nas condutas terapêuticas.

    The NA48 experiment at the CERN SPS accelerator is making a measurement of the direct CP violation parameter epsilon '/ epsilon by comparing the four rates of decay of K/sub S/ and K/sub L/ into 2 pi /sup 0/ and pi /sup +/ pi /sup -/. To reconstruct the decays into 2 pi /sup 0/ the information from the almost 13500 channels of a quasi-homogeneous liquid krypton electromagnetic calorimeter is used. The readout electronics of the calorimeter has been designed to provide a dynamic range from a few MeV to about 50 GeV energy deposition per cell, and to sustain a high rate of incident particles. The system is made by cold charge preamplifiers (working at 120 degrees K), low-noise fast shapers followed by digitizer electronics at 40 MHz sampling rate that employs a gain switching technique to expand the dynamic range, where the gain can be selected for each sample individually (i.e. every 25 ns). To reduce the amount of data collected the system contains a zero suppression circuit based on halo expansion. (12 refs)...

    The NA60 experiment at the CERN SPS has measured muon pairs with unprecedented precision in 158A GeV In-In collisions. A strong excess of pairs above the known sources is observed in the whole mass region 0.2 rho -> mu+mu- annihilation. The associated rho spectral function shows a strong broadening, but essentially no shift in mass. For M>1 GeV, the excess is found to be prompt, not due to enhanced charm production, with pronounced differences to Drell-Yan pairs. The slope parameter Teff associated with the transverse momentum spectra rises with mass up to the rho, followed by a sudden decline above. The rise for M1 GeV and its relation to parton-hadron duality is discussed in detail, suggesting a dominantly partonic emission source in this region. A comparison of the data to the present status of theoretical modeling is also contained. The accumulated empirical evidence, including also a Planck-like shape of the mass spectra at low pT and the lack of polarization, is consistent with a global interpretation o...

Por existir uma preocupação com a qualidade de vida da Terceira Idade e sua autonomia, nesta fase que muitos acabam ficando dependentes dos membros da família, espera-se encontrar através da arte uma motivação e uma forma de demonstrar a autoria por meio do fazer, criar e recriar com o artesanato. Aprender e ensinar são um processo contínuo na vida do ser humano, independente da idade, para Paulo Freire precisamos ter consciência de que somos inacabados, e sendo conscientes de nossa inconclusão, devemos viver num permanente movimento de busca. Essa é uma das causas pelas quais será pesquisada a prática formativa/educacional por meio do artesanato na Terceira Idade. Os motivos que levaram a escolha desta pesquisa com o artesanato na Terceira Idade é o fato de ter vivido uma experiência de trabalho na ala geriátrica de um hospital. Já o artesanato é a arte que fascina, e acreditamos que sempre há tempo para recomeçar, para descobrir algo que possa trazer qualidade para nossa vida. Devido ao crescimento cada vez maior da expectativa de vida em nosso país, cria-se uma preocupação com a qualidade de vida das pessoas da Terceira Idade. Em relação aos aspectos educacionais e culturais, esta pesquisa deseja compreender como o artesanato pode trazer motivação para as pessoas da Terceira Idade como forma de autoria e autonomia, nesta fase da vida, na cidade de Sinop, e quais os motivos que os levam a realizar esse tipo de atividade. Para investigação teórica desta pesquisa do Artesanato na Terceira Idade: um estudo na cidade de Sinop em 2011 usaremos bibliografia de vários autores, mas em especial os que dedicam seus estudos a esta faixa etária, como a coleção de Vivaidade, que tem como organizadora principal Anita Liberalesso Neri.

    Full Text Available Ag and Pt nanoparticles have successfully been synthesized by hydrolysis of either Ag2Na or PtNa at room temperature. The oxidation of sodium in the Pt-Na pellets was much faster than that in the Ag-Na pellets since Pt is a catalyst for H2O formation reaction from hydrogen and oxygen at room temperature. The hydrolysis byproduct, NaOH, has a high solubility and easily is removed. This method offers a simple method of preparing transition metal nanoparticles. The Ag and Pt nanoparticles prepared by this method were crystalline in nature, and spherical in shape with a mean size of around 10 nm.

    The antibacterial activity of regenerated NaY zeolite (thermal treatment from cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB)-modified NaY zeolite and pretreatment with Na ions) loaded with silver ions were examined using the broth dilution minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) method against Escherichia coli (E. coli ATCC 11229) and Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus ATCC 6538). X-ray diffraction (XRD), attenuated total reflectance–Fourier transform infrared (ATR–FTIR) spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) and chemical elemental analyses were used to characterize the regenerated NaY and AgY zeolites. The XRD patterns indicated that the calcination and addition of silver ions on regenerated NaY zeolite did not affect the structure of the regenerated NaY zeolite as the characteristic peaks of the NaY zeolite were retained, and no new peaks were observed. The regenerated AgY zeolite showed good antibacterial activity against both bacteria strains in distilled water, and the antibacterial activity of the samples increased with increasing Ag loaded on the regenerated AgY zeolite; the regenerated AgY zeolite was more effective against E. coli than S. aureus. However, the antibacterial activity of the regenerated AgY was not effective in saline solution for both bacteria. The study showed that CTAB-modified NaY zeolite materials could be regenerated to NaY zeolite using thermal treatment (550 °C, 5 h) and this material has excellent performance as an antibacterial agent after silver ions loading. - Highlights: • Thermal treatment was used to regenerate surfactant modified zeolite. • The regenerated NaY zeolite formed was added with different silver loadings. • Regenerated AgY zeolite was tested for antibacterial activity on E. coli and S. aureus. • The antibacterial activity increased with increased of the amount of silver loadings. • The zeolite structure did not change with thermal and modification

    O advento do punk assinalou um ponto de inflexão dentro do universo cultural pop. A música punk, elemento centralizador da identidade do movimento, emergiu com a proposta de romper com as tradicionais premissas de aptidão e técnica cada vez mais presentes na música de meados da década de 1970. O retorno a um desenho musical simples e visceral somado à valorização de uma realidade cotidiana ordinária trouxe para o centro da composição tanto sonoridades características das grandes cidades quant...

    In this work, the results of contactless magnetoconductance and Raman spectroscopy measurements performed for a graphene sample after its immersion in NaCl solution were presented. The properties of the immersed sample were compared with those of a non-immersed reference sample. Atomic force microscopy and electron spin resonance experiments confirmed the deposition of NaCl nanoparticles on the graphene surface. A weak localization signal observed using contactless magnetoconductance showed the reduction of the coherence length after NaCl treatment of graphene. Temperature dependence of the coherence length indicated a change from ballistic to diffusive regime in electron transport after NaCl treatment. The main inelastic scattering process was of the electron-electron type but the major reason for the reduction of the coherence length at low temperatures was additional, temperature independent, inelastic scattering. We associate it with spin flip scattering, caused by NaCl nanoparticles present on the graphene surface. Raman spectroscopy showed an increase in the D and D′ bands intensities for graphene after its immersion in NaCl solution. An analysis of the D, D′, and G bands intensities proved that this additional scattering is related to the decoration of vacancies and grain boundaries with NaCl nanoparticles, as well as generation of new on-site defects as a result of the decoration of the graphene surface with NaCl nanoparticles. The observed energy shifts of 2D and G bands indicated that NaCl deposition on the graphene surface did not change carrier concentration, but reduced compressive biaxial strain in the graphene layer.

    Full Text Available RESUMO: A reforma do papado está colocada em pauta no atual pontificado. Embora não esteja publicizada como uma pauta explícita está relacionada às reformas gerais da Cúria se encontram em curso. O Papa Francisco é autoridade legítima e de direito para realizá-la, embora a história revele reformas já realizadas em nome de princípios teológicos e de estratégias políticas. A tarefa é simultaneamente simbólica e política e depara-se com desafios de ordem tradicional e burocrática para ser implementada. Francisco assume em suas posturas e na Exortação Evangelii gaudium a necessidade de uma reforma do papado no âmbito das “reformas inadiáveis” da Igreja. ABSTRACT: The reform of the papacy is placed on the agenda in the current pontificate. Although not publicized with an explicit agenda but is related to the general reform of the Curia that are under way. The Pope Francis is the legitimate and legal authority to carry it out according to the Catholic understanding of primacy . This task is both symbolic and political and is facing challenges from traditional and bureaucratic institutions to implement it. The papacy is a reformable institution and it can be evidenced by the history and can be indicated by the texts of the Magisterium. Francis takes his positions and   in the Exhortation Evangelii gaudium expresses the need for a reform of the papacy under the " urgent reforms " of the Church.

    2012-11-01

    The ternary superconductor NaAlSi, isostructural with LiFeAs, the “111” iron pnictide superconductor, is investigated under pressure. The structure remains stable up to 15 GPa. Resistivity and susceptibility measurements show an increase of Tc up to 2 GPa, followed by a decrease until superconductivity disappears at 4.8 GPa. Band structure calculations show that pressure should have a negligible effect on the electronic structure and the Fermi surface and thus the disappearance of superconductivity under pressure must have a different origin. We compare the electronic structure of NaAlSi under pressure with that of nonsuperconducting isostructural NaAlGe.

    Full Text Available O estudo parte de uma análise do jusnaturalismo na Idade Moderna e de seu esforço no sentido de oferecer uma fundamentação racional (e não mais transcendental para a existência dos direitos naturais do homem. Em seguida, passa-se a uma reavaliação dos pilares da teoria contratualista que ressurgiu vigorosamente nas teses iluministas daquele período, notadamente no pensamento de Rousseau. Nesse sentido, revisitam-se os inovadores conceitos de soberania popular e vontade geral, para, ato contínuo, confrontá-los com a crítica impiedosa e sugerir o verdadeiro objetivo intentado pelo filósofo genebrês em seu texto. Ao final, conclui-se pela influência salutar da obra rousseauniana no florescer da Revolução Francesa, de 1789, e pela persistência e atualidade dos seus princípios que, se bem contextualizados, podem auxiliar no processo de aprimoramento do modelo de democracia representativa presente nas nações mais influentes do mundo contemporâneo.

    Tungsten carbide was utilized as anode to extract tungsten in a NaCl-KCl-Na2WO4 molten salt, and the electrochemical dissolution was investigated. Although the molten salt electrochemical method is a short process method of tungsten extraction from tungsten carbide in one step, the dissolution efficiency and current efficiency are quite low. In order to improve the dissolution rate and current efficiency, the sodium tungstate was added as the active substance. The dissolution rate, the anode current efficiency, and the cathode current efficiency were calculated with different contents of sodium tungstate addition. The anodes prior to and following the reaction, as well as the product, were analyzed through X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and energy dispersive spectrometry. The results demonstrated that the sodium tungstate could improve the dissolution rate and the current efficiency, due to the addition of sodium tungstate decreasing the charge transfer resistance in the electrolysis system. Due to the fact that the addition of sodium tungstate could remove the carbon during electrolysis, pure tungsten powders with 100 nm diameter were obtained when the content of sodium tungstate was 1.0 pct.

    The antibacterial activity of regenerated NaY zeolite (thermal treatment from cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB)-modified NaY zeolite and pretreatment with Na ions) loaded with silver ions were examined using the broth dilution minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) method against Escherichia coli (E. coli ATCC 11229) and Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus ATCC 6538). X-ray diffraction (XRD), attenuated total reflectance-Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) and chemical elemental analyses were used to characterize the regenerated NaY and AgY zeolites. The XRD patterns indicated that the calcination and addition of silver ions on regenerated NaY zeolite did not affect the structure of the regenerated NaY zeolite as the characteristic peaks of the NaY zeolite were retained, and no new peaks were observed. The regenerated AgY zeolite showed good antibacterial activity against both bacteria strains in distilled water, and the antibacterial activity of the samples increased with increasing Ag loaded on the regenerated AgY zeolite; the regenerated AgY zeolite was more effective against E. coli than S. aureus. However, the antibacterial activity of the regenerated AgY was not effective in saline solution for both bacteria. The study showed that CTAB-modified NaY zeolite materials could be regenerated to NaY zeolite using thermal treatment (550°C, 5h) and this material has excellent performance as an antibacterial agent after silver ions loading.

  20. Regulation of the cardiac Na+ channel NaV1.5 by post-translational modifications.

    Marionneau, Céline; Abriel, Hugues

    2015-05-01

    The cardiac voltage-gated Na(+) channel, Na(V)1.5, is responsible for the upstroke of the action potential in cardiomyocytes and for efficient propagation of the electrical impulse in the myocardium. Even subtle alterations of Na(V)1.5 function, as caused by mutations in its gene SCN5A, may lead to many different arrhythmic phenotypes in carrier patients. In addition, acquired malfunctions of Na(V)1.5 that are secondary to cardiac disorders such as heart failure and cardiomyopathies, may also play significant roles in arrhythmogenesis. While it is clear that the regulation of Na(V)1.5 protein expression and function tightly depends on genetic mechanisms, recent studies have demonstrated that Na(V)1.5 is the target of various post-translational modifications that are pivotal not only in physiological conditions, but also in disease. In this review, we examine the recent literature demonstrating glycosylation, phosphorylation by Protein Kinases A and C, Ca(2+)/Calmodulin-dependent protein Kinase II, Phosphatidylinositol 3-Kinase, Serum- and Glucocorticoid-inducible Kinases, Fyn and Adenosine Monophosphate-activated Protein Kinase, methylation, acetylation, redox modifications, and ubiquitylation of Na(V)1.5. Modern and sensitive mass spectrometry approaches, applied directly to channel proteins that were purified from native cardiac tissues, have enabled the determination of the precise location of post-translational modification sites, thus providing essential information for understanding the mechanistic details of these regulations. The current challenge is first, to understand the roles of these modifications on the expression and the function of Na(V)1.5, and second, to further identify other chemical modifications. It is postulated that the diversity of phenotypes observed with Na(V)1.5-dependent disorders may partially arise from the complex post-translational modifications of channel protein components.

    Full Text Available Disodium molybdenum dioxide diarsenate, Na2MoO2As2O7, has been synthesized by a solid-state reaction. The structure is built up from MoAs2O12 linear units sharing corners to form a three-dimensional framework containing tunnels running along the a-axis direction in which the Na+ cations are located. In this framework, the AsV atoms are tetrahedrally coordinated and form an As2O7 group. The MoVI atom is displaced from the center of an octahedron of O atoms. Two Na+ cations are disordered about inversion centres. Structural relationships between different compounds: A2MoO2As2O7 (A = K, Rb, AMOP2O7 (A = Na, K, Rb; M = Mo, Nb and MoP2O7 are discussed.

    The angular distribution of beta− particles emitted by the radioactive isotope 24Na was monitored following implantation into ZnO single crystals at fluences above 5E12 cm−2 at CERN’s ISOLDE facility. We identified sodium on two distinct sites: on substitutional Zn sites and on interstitial sites that are close to the so-called octahedral site. The interstitial Na was to large extent converted to substitutional Na already for annealing at 200°C, from which an activation energy of 0.8−1.3 eV, most likely around 1.2 eV, is estimated for the migration of interstitial Na in ZnO.

    Recent results from the NA48/1 and NA48/2 experiments at the CERN SPS are presented. NA48/2 carried out data taking in 2003 and 2004 collecting charged kaon decays: branching ratios and form factors have been measured for the rare K+- to pi+-e+e-, K+- to pi+-gammagamma and K+- to pi+-e+e-gamma decays. The NA48/1 experiment has taken data in 2002 using only the Ks beam at an increased intensity measuring neutral hyperon radiative decays. Using this data, which exceeds present statistics by about one order of magnitude, a new precise measurement of the Csi_0 decay asymmetries has been obtained.

The trials were carried out at three localities in the State of São Paulo, viz. : Campinas, Taubaté and Joanópolis. Soil analyses from the test plots showed variation in phosphorus content. This was low at Joanópolis, medium at Campinas, and high at Taubaté. Nitrogen was added as ammonium sulphate, nitrate of soda, and potassium nitrate ; potash, as potassium sulphate or potassium carbonate (ashes. Phosphorus was suplied by superphosphates (trade names of Dawco and Granulated, of American origin by "Cibraphosphate", "Serranaphosphate" and "Serranaphosphatepotassico" from local manufacturers and by bone meal. All forms of nitrogen or potash tried were about equally effective for potatoes when applied with any of the phosphates. Phosphorus was found to be the most important element to increase production. Applications of only nitrogen plus potash, brought no significant increase in yield. The greatest yields were obtained
