We have previously shown that a brain protein kinase, termed PK40, catalyzes the multiple phosphorylation of the KSP-repeat site of neurofilaments (NFs) and also can transform tau proteins into the paired helical filament-like state as found in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brains. Protein sequence analysis suggests that PK40 is a form of the extracellular(More)
A new apparatus for measuring both the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of fluids at temperatures from 220 to 775 K at pressures to 70 MPa is described. The instrument is based on the step-power-forced transient hot-wire technique. Two hot wires are arranged in different arms of a Wheatstone bridge such that the response of the shorter(More)
The resistance of metals is a function of applied pressure, and this dependence is large enough to be significant in the calibration of transient hot-wire thermal conductivity instruments. We recommend that for the highest possible accuracy, the instrument's hot wires should be calibrated in situ. If this is not possible, we recommend that a value of γ, the(More)
A transient hot-wire apparatus was used to measure the thermal conductivity of argon with both steady-state and transient methods. The effects of wire diameter, eccentricity of the wire in the cavity, axial conduction, and natural convection were accounted for in the analysis of the steady-state measurements. Based on measurements on argon, the relative(More)
The paper presents new experimental measurements of the thermal conductivity of oxygen for thirteen isotherms at temperatures from 78 to 310 K with pressures to 70 MW and densitiesfrom 0 to 40 mol/L. The measurements were made with a transient hot wire apparatus and they cover a wide range of physical states including the dilute gas, the moderately dense(More)
