[1] In this paper we describe the methodology of an offline retrieval of CO 2 from AIRS data and show comparisons of these retrievals with all available NOAA ESRL/GMD aircraft data during 2005. In general, we find that when compared to the aircraft the AIRS CO 2 estimates agree to approximately ±0.5% in middle-tropospheric CO 2 column abundances between ±65(More)
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) and hypochlorite (HOCl) participate in the pathogenesis of ischemia/reperfusion injury, inflammation, and atherosclerosis. Both NO and ROS are important modulators of vascular tone and architecture and of adhesive interactions between leukocytes, platelets, and vascular endothelium. We studied the(More)
Glomerular mesangial and endothelial cells have key roles in the regulation of glomerular blood flow, both under normal circumstances and in pathologic states. The anatomic structure of the glomerulus is such that the endothelial and mesangial cells are in close proximity to each other and consequently may communicate through a number of cellular mediators.(More)
The stem of the bamboo plant consists of a hollow, tubular culm with periodic nodes, characterised by an internal diaphragm and an external ridge. Bamboo is a highly anisotropic material having a strong fibre orientation, but in the vicinity of the nodes, the fibres diverge from their longitudinal orientations. Previous researchers have claimed that the(More)
