The volumes of ATOMIC AND PLASMA–MATERIAL INTERACTION DATA FOR FUSION are published by the International Atomic Energy normally once a year. For these volumes, papers, letters and reviews are accepted which deal with the following topics: – Elementary collision processes in fusion plasmas involving photons, electrons, ions, atoms and molecules; – Collision(More)
Reactive oxygen species and the NADPH oxidases contribute to hypertension via mechanisms that remain undefined. Reactive oxygen species produced in the central nervous system have been proposed to promote sympathetic outflow, inflammation, and hypertension, but the contribution of the NADPH oxidases to these processes in chronic hypertension is uncertain.(More)
Goat antibodies to pig lung angiotensin-converting enzyme (kininase II) were conjugated to microperoxidase. Rat lung tissue, previously incubated with non-immune goat serum, was incubated with the antibody-microperoxidase conjugate and then with H2O2 and 3,3-diaminobenzidine. Electron microscopy revealed reaction product on the plasma membrane and caveolae(More)
Receptors for the activated third component of complement and for the Fc portion of immunoglobulin G are not expressed by apparently normal bovine pulmonary endothelial cells, but are expressed when the cells are exposed to white cell lysates or are infected with influenza or cytomegalovirus. The unmasking of these latent receptors may contribute to the(More)
A patient with confirmed western equine encephalitis had the rapid onset of postencephalitic parkinsonian sequelae. This observation corroborates similar previous but rare reports. Response to therapy with levodopa, dopa decarboxylase inhibitor, and trihexyphenidyl was dramatic. However, remission maintained for 12 months without medication suggests that(More)
BACKGROUND Stroke-like episodes associated with Sturge-Weber Syndrome have previously been attributed to thrombosis within the leptomeningeal malformation causing infarction. CASE REPORT A 22-year-old woman with a right-sided port-wine nevus presented with acute left hemiparesis. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrated a vascular malformation(More)
This review compares two novel polygenic mouse models of type 2 diabetes (T2D), TALLYHO/JngJ and NONcNZO10/LtJ, and contrasts both with the well-known C57BLKS/J-Lepr(db) (db/db) monogenic diabesity model. We posit that the new polygenic models are more representative of the "garden variety" obesity underlying human T2D in terms of their polygenetic rather(More)
Seven GABAmimetic drugs, namely cetyl gamma-aminobutyric acid (cetyl GABA), 4,5,6,7-tetrahydroisoxazolo [5,4-c]pyridine-3-ol, progabide, aminooxyacetic acid, alpha-acetylenic GABA, (-)-nipecotic acid ethyl ester and (+/-)-cis-4-hydroxynipecotic acid methyl ester, were tested for their potency to block "major" (generalized clonic-tonic) seizures in gerbils,(More)
Rate coefficients for rotational transitions in H 2 induced by H 2 impact are presented. Extensive quantum mechanical coupled-channel calculations based on a recently published (H 2) 2 potential energy surface were performed. The potential energy surface used here is presumed to be more reliable than surfaces used in previous work. Rotational transition(More)
Atomic and molecular processes in plasmas play a crucial role in the development of net energy producing magnetic fusion devices. In light of this fact, presented here is a survey of the broad needs of fusion energy research and a review of the status of the existing database. Emphasis is placed on the relatively new needs for data as novel materials are(More)
