Arsenic (As) contamination of rice grains affects millions of people worldwide. In this study, we found that sulfur application (20As+120S) decreased As concentration in rice grains by 44 % compared to grains without sulfur application (20As+0S). Importantly, sulfur application decreased arsenate [As(V)] and arsenite [As(III)] concentration in rice grains(More)
Alpha-lipoic acid (α-LA) is not only involved in energy metabolism, but is also a powerful antioxidant that can protect against hepatic oxidative stress induced by some drugs, toxins, or under various physiological and pathophysiological conditions. Here, we investigated the effect of α-LA against liver oxidative damage in broilers exposed to aflatoxin B1(More)
We have investigated single event charge collection and negative-bias instabilities in SiGe pMOSFETs that are of interest for future commercial and space applications. Single-event transient (SET) pulse polarity can depend on the location of the strike along the device channel in ways that differ from SETs in Si-based CMOS devices. The drain bias can(More)
