A novel thermophilic, obligately methylotrophic, methanogenic archaeon, strain L2FAW(T), was isolated from a thermophilic laboratory-scale upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor fed with methanol as the carbon and energy source. Cells of strain L2FAW(T) were non-motile, irregular cocci, 0.7-1.5 mum in diameter and usually occurred singly (sometimes forming(More)
We have previously shown that some transformed derivatives of the human osteosarcoma-derived cell line HOS are killed by treatment with 1 microM ouabain at pH 8.2, whereas their nontransformed counterparts are relatively unharmed by the same conditions. HOS cells transformed by v-Ki-ras and RAS, v-fms, or MET are susceptible to 1 microM ouabain while those(More)
The purpose of the present study was to determine the relationship between the adaptations in muscle fiber size and the connective tissue content (interfiber area) in atrophying and hypertrophying skeletal muscles. Hypertrophy was induced in the cat plantaris muscle via functional overload (FO,12 weeks) induced via the removal of its major synergists.(More)
Organic phase change material (PCM) with macro-encapsulation is attractive in energy storage applications as it has relatively low cost. This study focuses on using PET plastic pipes to encapsulate paraffin and using low-cost float stones to increase the thermal conductivity of PCM modules as they have a special structure of high porosity. Float stones were(More)
