The structure-activity relationship of flavonoids as inhibitors of xanthine oxidase and as scavengers of the superoxide radical, produced by the action of the enzyme xanthine oxidase, was investigated. The hydroxyl groups at C-5 and C-7 and the double bond between C-2 and C-3 were essential for a high inhibitory activity on xanthine oxidase. Flavones showed(More)
We sequenced the complete mitochondrial genome of Phalera flavescens. The mitogenome is 15,659 bp in length, including 13 protein-coding genes (atp6, atp8, cox1-3, nad1-6, nad4L, cob), two ribosomal RNAs (rrnS and rrnL), 22 transfer RNAs and an AT-rich region, a putative control region (D-loop). Gene order and orientation were found to be identical to those(More)
PURPOSE This report describes a study to enhance the epithermal neutron beam at the Brookhaven Medical Research Reactor by increasing the epithermal neutron flux and/or reducing contamination by fast neutrons. METHODS AND MATERIALS The beam was reevaluated using Monte Carlo calculations and flux and dose measurements in air and in an ellipsoidal head(More)
Lactic acid bacteria are nonpathogenic bacteria commonly used in food processing. An evaluation was made of the capacity to concentrate selenium in species of Lactobacillus. A selenium concentration of 1 microgram/mL in the culture medium yielded in a bacterial content of 400 micrograms/g dry biomass. Dialysis and TCA precipitation experiments of a native(More)
Pairing symmetry is a fundamental property that characterizes a superconductor. For the iron-based high-temperature superconductors, an s(±)-wave pairing symmetry has received increasing experimental and theoretical support. More specifically, the superconducting order parameter is an isotropic s-wave type around a particular Fermi surface, but it has(More)
Single-layer FeSe films with an extremely expanded in-plane lattice constant of 3.99±0.02  Å are fabricated by epitaxially growing FeSe/Nb:SrTiO3/KTaO3 heterostructures and studied by in situ angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. Two elliptical electron pockets at the Brillouin zone corner are resolved with negligible hybridization between them,(More)
The three-dimensional band structure and superconducting gap of Ba0.6K0.4Fe2As2 are studied with angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. In contrast with previous results, we have identified three holelike Fermi surface sheets near the zone center with sizable out-of-plane or kz dispersion. The superconducting gap on certain Fermi surface sheets shows(More)
The electronic structure of NaFeAs is studied with angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy on high quality single crystals. Large portions of the band structure start to shift around the structural transition temperature and smoothly evolve as the temperature lowers through the spin density wave transition. Moreover, band folding due to magnetic order(More)
In conventional BCS superconductors, the quantum condensation of superconducting electron pairs is understood as a Fermi surface instability, in which the low-energy electrons are paired by attractive interactions. Whether this explanation is still valid in high-Tc superconductors such as cuprates and iron-based superconductors remains an open question. In(More)
We systematically investigated the in-plane resistivity anisotropy of electron-underdoped EuFe(2-x)Co(x)As(2) and BaFe(2-x)Co(x)As(2) and hole-underdoped Ba(1-x)K(x)Fe(2)As(2). Large in-plane resistivity anisotropy was found in the former samples, while tiny in-plane resistivity anisotropy was detected in the latter ones. When it is detected, the anisotropy(More)
