Sugars play an important role in grapevine flowering. This complex process from inflorescence initiation to fruit maturity takes two growing seasons. Currently, most of the available data concern the involvement of sugars as energy sources during the formation of reproductive structures from initiation of inflorescences during the summer of the first year,(More)
Oxygen sensing was investigated in rat pheochromocytoma PC12 cells. They respond to hypoxia with an increased intracellular generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), measured by oxidation of dihydrorhodamine 123. This increase is abolished by intracellular superoxide scavenging by Mn(III)-tetrakis(1-methyl-4-pyridyl)-porphyrin, and reduced or absent in(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS The majority of colonoscopies in Germany are performed under conscious sedation. Previous studies reported that pediatric colonoscopes reduce the demand for sedative drugs and may improve cecal intubation. The aim of this study was to compare a new ultrathin and a standard colonoscope in terms of propofol demand during colonoscopy.(More)
An NADPH oxidase complex composed of a membrane-bound flavocytochrome b558 consisting of two subunits (p22phox and gp91phox) and cytosolic activating factors (p47phox and p67phox) generates superoxide anions from oxygen in the respiratory burst of phagocytic cells. Inconsistent results have been previously obtained concerning its additional occurrence in(More)
The frequency of hypoxanthine guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT) mutations was determined in human T-lymphocytes isolated from peripheral blood of three populations: (1) 24 employees occupationally exposed to vinyl chloride monomer; (2) 23 healthy non-exposed matched control individuals and (3) 41 regular blood donors. In addition, mutant clones of(More)
The methylation and amplification pattern of genomic DNA of carrot root expiants (Daucus carota L.) undergoes transitory changes during the cultural cycle. A high degree of variation was observed as early as 36 h after the incubation of fresh expiants in the nutrient medium and, depending on the hormonal treatment significant modifications occurred during(More)
The discovery of superconductivity with a transition temperature, Tc, up to 65 K in single-layer FeSe (bulk Tc=8 K) films grown on SrTiO3 substrates has attracted special attention to Fe-based thin films. The high Tc is a consequence of the combined effect of electron transfer from the oxygen-vacant substrate to the FeSe thin film and lattice tensile(More)
The recently discovered oxypnictide superconductor SmFeAs(O,F) is the most attractive material among the Fe-based superconductors due to its highest transition temperature of 56 K and potential for high-field performance. In order to exploit this new material for superconducting applications, the knowledge and understanding of its electro-magnetic(More)
The Hall effect is a powerful tool for investigating carrier type and density. For single-band materials, the Hall coefficient is traditionally expressed simply by , where e is the charge of the carrier, and n is the concentration. However, it is well known that in the critical region near a quantum phase transition, as it was demonstrated for cuprates and(More)
Having succeeded in the fabrication of epitaxial superconducting LaFeAsO(1-x)F(x) thin films we performed an extensive study of electrical transport properties. In the face of multiband superconductivity we can demonstrate that an anisotropic Ginzburg-Landau scaling of the angular dependent critical current densities can be adopted, although being(More)
