Scaffolds have been utilized in tissue regeneration to facilitate the formation and maturation of new tissues or organs where a balance between temporary mechanical support and mass transport (degradation and cell growth) is ideally achieved. Polymers have been widely chosen as tissue scaffolding material having a good combination of biodegradability,(More)
SUMO conjugation is a key regulator of the cellular response to DNA replication stress, acting in part to control recombination at stalled DNA replication forks. Here we examine recombination-related phenotypes in yeast mutants defective for the SUMO de-conjugating/chain-editing enzyme Ulp2p. We find that spontaneous recombination is elevated in ulp2(More)
The main goal of this work is to investigate the performance of zirconia toughened alumina (ZTA) and ZTA reinforced with magnesium oxide (MgO) used as cutting insert in end milling of AISI 1018 steel with hardness of 27 HRC. Performances of the cutting insert were compared according to tool life and surface finish of workpiece. Insert flank wear that(More)
This paper describes the developments of Bio-MEMS using fabric as the structural components. The use of fabrics for Bio-MEMS construction significantly simplifies the conventional fabrication process. In this paper we proposed a new fabrication process for fabrics-based Bio-MEMS. In addition, to the simple and low-cost fabrication process, stamping method(More)
