The ability of a bovine herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1) recombinant expressing the G protein of bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) to protect against BRSV infection was examined in calves. A synthetic G gene was inserted behind the gE promoter of BHV-1 to give a gE-negative, BHV-1/G recombinant. Gnotobiotic calves, vaccinated intranasally and intratracheally(More)
We perform grand-canonical molecular simulations to study the molecular mechanism of clay swelling hysteresis as a function of the relative humidity. In particular, we focus on the transition from the one- to the two-layer hydrate and the influence of three types of counterions (Li+, Na+, and K+). Our results cover the experimental relative humidity region(More)
This study reports the use of 1-butyl-3-methyl imidazolium methanesulfonate ionic liquid as a template in the synthesis of zeolites. It is found that the silicon source determines the formation of beta (BEA), mordenite framework inverted (MFI), or analcime (ANA) zeolites. Depending on this source, different preorganized complexes are obtained that drive the(More)
This study investigates whether a modified version of the COOP/WONCA charts is suitable to assess quality of life (QOL) in persons with dementia in nursing homes. A group of 112 institutionalized persons with moderate to severe dementia were approached for an interview. Twenty-two were observed not to be communicative, leaving 90. Sixty-seven persons were(More)
Copper-exchanged zeolites with mordenite structure mimic the nuclearity and reactivity of active sites in particulate methane monooxygenase, which are enzymes able to selectively oxidize methane to methanol. Here we show that the mordenite micropores provide a perfect confined environment for the highly selective stabilization of trinuclear copper-oxo(More)
Ceria-supported gold catalysts before and after leaching by NaCN were investigated by X-ray absorption spectroscopy at the Au L(III) edge. After gold leaching, isolated gold cations remain in close interaction with the support. These ions form an ideal precursor to very small clusters of a few gold atoms upon reduction. The resulting gold clusters exhibit a(More)
Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) supported on MgCuCr2O4-spinel are highly active and selective for the aerobic oxidation of ethanol to acetaldehyde (conversion 100%; yield ∼95%). The catalyst is stable for at least 500 h. The unprecedented catalytic performance is due to strong synergy between metallic AuNPs and surface Cu(+) species. X-ray photoelectron(More)
A combined experimental and computational study of the ionic-liquid-mediated dehydration of glucose and fructose by Cr(II) and Cr(III) chlorides has been performed. The ability of chromium to selectively dehydrate glucose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) in the ionic liquid 1-ethyl-3-methyl imidazolium chloride does not depend on the oxidation state of(More)
