A review on the factors affecting the photocatalytic degradation of hazardous materials
The industrial waste water containing the various dyes is responsible for water pollution, due to their carcinogenic behaviour. Lots of investigations reported that 10-12% of dyes are used every yearExpand
Magnesium-tetrazaporphyrin incorporated PVC matrix as a new material for fabrication of Mg(2+) selective potentiometric sensor.
Membrane incorporating [Mg{(TAP)(SBn)(8)}] complex, (I), as ionophore with composition I:NaTPB:DOP:PVC in the ratio 10:2:133:200 (w/w) exhibits the best result for potentiometric sensing of Mg(2+)Expand
Preparation of ethambutol-copper(II) complex and fabrication of PVC based membrane potentiometric sensor for copper.
The sensor works well in the pH range 2.1-6.3 and could be satisfactorily used in presence of 40% (v/v) methanol, ethanol and acetone and is selective for copper over a large number of cations with slight interference from Na(+) and Co(2+) if present at a level 1.5x10(-5) M. Expand
Metallo-tetraazaporphyrin based anion sensors: regulation of sensor characteristics through central metal ion coordination
Abstract The iron(III) and cobalt(III) complexes of 2,3,7,8,12,13,17,18-octakis(benzylthio)-5,10,15,20-tetraazaporphyrin, (OBTAP) were synthesized and incorporated into PVC matrix as ionophores toExpand
High-yield functional expression of human sodium/d-glucose cotransporter1 in Pichia pastoris and characterization of ligand-induced conformational changes as studied by tryptophan fluorescence.
Three conformational states of SGLT1 could be defined which differ in their packing density and hydrophobicity of their surface and reflect properties of the empty carrier, the d-glucose loaded carrier facing the outside of membrane and the complex of the outside-orientated carrier with phlorizin.

D-Glucose-recognition and phlorizin-binding sites in human sodium/D-glucose cotransporter 1 (hSGLT1): a tryptophan scanning study.
Results suggest that in the native carrier residues Gln at position 457 and Thr at position 460 reside in a hydrophilic access pathway extending 5-7 A into the membrane to which sugars as well as the sugar moiety of inhibitory glucosides bind. Expand
Dibenzocyclamnickel(II) as Ionophore in PVC-Matrix for Ni2+-Selective Sensor
Abstract: The tetramethyldibenzocyclam derivative, was synthesized and characterized and was used for fabrication of potentiometric sensor for Ni 2+ metal ion.Expand
Molecular remodeling of ion channels, exchangers and pumps in atrial and ventricular myocytes in ischemic cardiomyopathy
In both atrial and ventricular myocytes ischemic cardiomyopathy reduced expression of CACNG7 and induced overexpression of FXYD1, the gene crucial for Na+. Expand
Sodium-independent low-affinity D-glucose transport by human sodium/D-glucose cotransporter 1: critical role of tryptophan 561.
It seems that Trp-561 in hSGLT1 forms part of a low-affinity sodium-independent binding and/or translocation site for d-glucose, and seems to be tightly regulated in the intact cell by yet unknown factors. Expand
Cu(II) selective sensor based on 5,7,12,14-tetramethyldibenzo[b,i]-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane in PVC matrix
Abstract5,7,12,14-tetramethyldibenzo[b,i]-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane, Me4Bzo2[14]aneN4. (I) was synthesized and used as an electroactive material for the fabrication of membrane electrode inExpand
