ABSTRACTCell death can be classified into two categories: apoptosis and necrosis. Apoptotic pathway can be either caspase-dependent or caspase-independent. Caspase-independent cytopathic effect (CPE) has been described. In order to evaluate the pattern of HeLa cell death induced by Coxsackievirus B3 (CVB3) and whether apoptosis involves caspase activation,(More)
Chunpoong is one of the most valuable cultivars of Panax ginseng C. A. MEYER, and is widely grown in Korea and China. Insertion/deletion (InDel) markers and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers are useful tools for marker-assisted selections. The SNP marker for determinate Chunpoong was previously developed from the nad7 gene of mtDNA by Wang et al.(More)
BACKGROUND Evidence has shown that autoantibodies against M2 muscarinic acetylcholine receptors may play a role in the development of atrial fibrillation. The goal of this study was to evaluate the effects of anti-M2 receptor autoantibodies on rabbit atria in vivo. METHODS Rabbits were immunized monthly with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the M2(More)
The stable structures, energies, and electronic properties of neutral, cationic, and anionic clusters of Al(n) (n = 2-10) are studied systematically at the B3LYP/6-311G(2d) level. We find that our optimized structures of Al5(+), Al9(+), Al9(-), Al10, Al10(+), and Al10(-) clusters are more stable than the corresponding ones proposed in previous literature(More)
In this paper, we systematically perform optimal design of microwave-assisted magnetic recording (MAMR) and heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) by applying response surface methodology (RSM) to optimize the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the recording process. We evaluate the performance of design of MAMR and HAMR through micromagnetic modeling. Design(More)
This paper reports a micromagnetic study of single-domain-grain dynamics in a thin-film magnetic recording medium which is used in the hard disk drive industry today. The behavior of the magnetization-vector of an individual grain is modeled by a modified Landau-Lifshitz (MLL) equation with the damping torque originating from the coupling between the(More)
Heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) signal-to-noise ratio results are presented based on Landau-Lifshitz-Bloch recording simulations using a double-layer composite T<sub>c</sub> media. An exchanged-coupled-composite Ku media is also considered in a HAMR system. Mean T<sub>c</sub> and &#x03C3;T<sub>c</sub> are varied in conditions of high and low(More)
This work reports a micromagnetic study of relaxation and switching of a single-domain-grain magnetization in the effective magnetic field of recording media. Based on the modified Landau-Lifshitz equation of micromagnetic dynamics, we have computed the relaxation time as a function of material-dependent constants of the magnetization precession damping,(More)
Aging plays an important role in increased vulnerability to atrial fibrillation (AF). Mediated by activity at the muscarinic type 2 receptor (M2R), the parasympathetic nerve contributes to the onset of AF. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether aging changes the distribution of M2R in the atrial myocardium and to determine the impact of these(More)
The study provides the first evidence of the presence and abundance of bacterial population that coupled ferric iron reduction to aromatic compounds degradation in tropical irrigated paddy soils in the Philippines. Culturable phenol/benzoate degrading iron-reducing bacteria was enumerated by the most probable number (MPN) counts using phenol or benzoate as(More)
