Body composition was measured in twenty young females aged 19-27 years and eighteen elderly females, aged 65-78 years by densitometry (underwater weighing), deuterium oxide dilution and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). From body weight, bone-mineral content, total body water and body density, percentage body fat (BF%) was calculated using a(More)
Herein, we describe the design, synthesis, structure, and function of synthetic, supramolecular beta-barrel models. Assembly of octi(p-phenylene)s with complementary -Lys-Leu-Lys-NH2 and Glu-Leu-Glu-NH2 side chains yielded water-soluble rigid-rod beta-barrels of precise length and with flexible diameter. A hydrophobic interior was evidenced by guest(More)
Design, synthesis, and esterase and ion channel activity of a novel barrel-stave supramolecule with hydrophobic exterior and histidine-rich interior are reported. Voltage-dependent binding of pyrenyl-8-oxy-1,3,6-trisulfonates by histidines within p-octiphenyl beta-barrels (and not monomers) via ionic (and not hydrophobic) interactions (K(D), K(I), K(M) < 1(More)
A considerably arduous test of a novel class of composite materials consisting of [Ru(bpy)3]2+ and TiO2 codoped zeolites Y is presented here. The [Ru(bpy)3]2+ and TiO2 codoped zeolites Y served as photocatalysts in the oxidation of the model compounds 2,4-dimethylaniline (2,4-xylidine) by H2O2 in an acidic aqueous medium. Zeolite-embedded TiO2(More)
