Stimulation of fat storage by prostacyclin and selective agonists of prostanoid IP receptor during the maturation phase of cultured adipocytes
We have previously shown that cultured adipocytes have the ability to biosynthesize prostaglandin (PG) I2 called alternatively as prostacyclin during the maturation phase by the positive regulation… Expand
Effects of postdeposition treatments on surfaces of CdTe/CdS solar cells
Soft x-ray spectroscopy has been used to follow the effects of postdeposition steps (CdCl2 activation and back contact treatment) on surfaces and interfaces in CdTe-based superstrate solar cells. We… Expand
