The structure and spatial distribution of the macrofauna community of the Bellingshausen Sea in the western sector of Antarctica was studied during the ‘BENTART–06’ oceanographic expedition. This is one of the least explored Antarctic seas. A total of 20 box cores were sampled at 11 stations ranging from 157 to 3,304 m depth, using an USNEL-type box corer(More)
Macrobenthic assemblages were investigated at 26 stations located around Livingston Island, Deception Island and the Bransfield Strait at depths ranging from 42 to 671 m. Representatives of 30 major taxa were found. The maximal density was 5,260 specimens·m−2 at Livingston Island; the mean abundance per station ranged from 160 to 4,380 specimens·m−2. The(More)
Okadaic acid is an inhibitor of the protein Ser/Thr phosphatases PP1 and PP2A, which blocks the activation of extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase 5 (ERK5), a member of the MAP kinase family activated by growth factors and several types of stressors. The blocking of ERK5 activation by okadaic acid was observed in HeLa cells exposed to epidermal(More)
A technique to analyze short-period (<1 hour) gravity wave structure in all-sky images of the airglow emissions is described. The technique involves spatial calibration, star removal, geographic projection, regridding, and flat fielding of the data prior to the determination of the horizontal wave parameters (wavelength, velocity, and period), by use of(More)
This report looks at the laboratory-scale recovery of iron oxides (alpha Fe2O3 type) through bio-oxidation with Thiobacillus ferrooxidans of the ferrous sulphate contained in steel industry sulphuric pickling liquors. This is done by calcining iron sulphates and iron and ammonium sulphates obtained from the crystallization of the oxidized solution. The(More)
A systematic study on the structural rules that regulate the chiral supramolecular organization of oligo(phenylene ethynylene) (OPE)-based discotics is presented. This study is based on the chirooptical properties of two different series of triangular shape OPEs. The first of them is composed by OPE-based trisamides with a variable number of chiral side(More)
Two amphiphilic C(3)-symmetric OPE-based trisamides have been synthesized and their self-assembling features investigated in solution and on surface. Variable-temperature UV-vis experiments demonstrate the cooperative supramolecular polymerization of these trisamides that self-assemble by the operation of triple C═O···H-N H-bonding arrays between the amide(More)
The content of Cu, Fe, Mn, Zn, Co, Cr, Ni, and Pb were determined in 496 samples of heat-treated canned liver pastes by atomic absorption spectrometry. Canned samples were classified according to the presence or absence of coated varnish on the inner side of the can. For each sample, two subsamples were taken: one from the area in contact with the side of(More)
Triangular-shaped oligo(phenylene ethynylene) amphiphiles 1a and 1b decorated in their periphery with two- and four-branched hydrophilic triethyleneglycol dendron wedges, have been synthesized and their self-assembling properties in solution and onto surfaces investigated. The steric demand produced by the dendritic substituents induces a face-to-face(More)
