Ocimum species are used in traditional Iranian medicine, as a culinary herb, and as a well-known source of flavoring principles. Horticultural characteristics, including quantitative and qualitative traits along with the chemical variation of phenolic acids, of 23 accessions of basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) from Iran were studied. Morphological studies of(More)
To determine the causes of failure of an artificial temporomandibular joint implant, one must study the magnitude and location of the maximum stresses under physiological loading. In this study, we analyzed the stresses in a commercially available TMJ implant, the bone (i.e., mandible), and the bone-implant interface using a finite element software package.(More)
lining the inside of some vesicles. The authors found that other vesicle-damaging pathogenic bacteria such as Listeria monocytogenes and Shigella flexneri are also decorated by galectins soon after infection. Moreover, osmotic damage of cytoplasmic vesicles in the absence of bacteria also resulted in the recruitment of galectins to the damaged vesicles. On(More)
We study four plausible scenarios for the SCP 06F6 transient event that was announced recently. Some of these were previously briefly discussed as plausible models for SCP 06F6, in particular with the claimed detection of a z = 0.143 cosmological redshift of a Swan spectrum of a carbon rich envelope. We cannot rule out any of these models, but can rank them(More)
We propose that the decline in the near-IR flux from the massive binary system η Carinae during the spectroscopic event might be explained by accreted mass that absorbs the radiation from the secondary star, and by that reduces the heating of the dust that is responsible for the near-IR emission. This binary system has an orbital period of 2024 days and(More)
We examine a variety of observations that shed light on the orientation of the semi-major axis of the η Carinae massive binary system. Under several assumptions we study the following observations: The Doppler shifts of some He I P-Cygni lines that is attributed to the secondary’s wind, of one Fe II line that is attributed to the primary’s wind, and of the(More)
We propose an explanation to the appearance of a wide blue absorption wing in the He I λ10830Å P Cygni profile of the massive binary star η Car several months before periastron. We assume that the mixing regions of the two wind is accelerated by the secondary’s wind to ∼ 1800 km s, and is responsible for the absorption. We also assume that the secondary(More)
We study the usage of the X-ray light curve, column density toward the hard X-ray source, and emission measure (density square times volume), of the massive binary system η Carinae to determine the orientation of its semi-major axis. The source of the hard X-ray emission is the shocked secondary wind. We argue that, by itself, the observed X-ray flux cannot(More)

The core-degenerate (CD) scenario for type Ia supernovae (SN Ia) involves the merger of the hot core of an asymptotic giant branch (AGB) star and a white dwarf, and might contribute a non-negligible fraction of all thermonuclear supernovae. Despite its potential interest, very few studies, and based on only crude simplifications, have been devoted to(More)
