Thirteen putative carbonic anhydrase (CA) genes have been identified in the marine multipolar centric diatom, Thalassiosira pseudonana, and two of these CAs have been localized previously. The first, an alpha CA (TpαCA1), was localized in the chloroplast stroma; the second, a zeta-type CA (TpζCA1), was localized to the periplasmic space. In the present(More)
18 19 Flow fields in commercial airliner cabins are crucial for creating a thermally comfortable and 20 healthy cabin environment. Flow fields depend on the thermo-fluid boundary conditions at 21 the diffusers, in addition to the cabin geometry and furnishing. To study the flow fields in 22 cabins, this paper describes a procedure to obtain the cabin(More)

Oxidative stress in adipose tissue plays an etiological role in a variety of obesity-related metabolic disorders. We previously reported that increased adipose tissue 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE) contents contributed to obesity-related plasma adiponectin decline in mice. In the present study, we investigated the effects of intracellular 4-HNE accumulation on(More)
Although well-established, the underlying mechanisms involved in obesity-related plasma adiponectin decline remain elusive. Oxidative stress is associated with obesity and insulin resistance and considered to contribute to the progression toward obesity-related metabolic disorders. In this study, we investigated the effects of 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE), the(More)
Pt nanodots have been grown on Al2O3 film via atomic layer deposition (ALD) using (MeCp)Pt(Me)3 and O2 precursors. Influence of the substrate temperature, pulse time of (MeCp)Pt(Me)3, and deposition cycles on ALD Pt has been studied comprehensively by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.(More)
Errors indicate the need to adjust attention for improved future performance. Detecting errors is thus a fundamental step to adjust and control attention. These functions have been associated with the dorsal anterior cingulate cortex (dACC), predicting that dACC cells should track the specific processing states giving rise to errors in order to identify(More)
Fruit wastes are one of the main sources of municipal waste. In order to explore the potential of fruit wastes as natural resources of bioactive compounds, the antioxidant potency and total phenolic contents (TPC) of lipophilic and hydrophilic components in wastes (peel and seed) of 50 fruits were systematically evaluated. The results showed that different(More)
The aim of our study was to investigate the contribution of serum calreticulin (CRT) in the assessment of disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Serum CRT levels were measured by ELISA in 70 patients with established RA, 30 systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), 25 other autoimmune diseases, 20 osteoarthritis (OA), and 35 of healthy controls (HC).(More)
