The purpose of this article was to evaluate the graft efficacy of reconstructed corneal layer, composed of autologous corneal epithelium and fibroblasts on a lyophilized amniotic membrane (LAM), in a severely alkali-burned corneal model. After biopsy specimens were obtained from the left eyes of 24 rabbits, the corneal epithelial cells and fibroblasts were(More)
On a roll: Attachment of flexible coils to the middle of a rigid rod generates T-shaped rod-coil molecules that self-assemble into layers that roll up to form filled cylindrical and hollow tubular scrolls, depending on the coil length, in the solid state (see picture); the rods are arranged parallel to the layer plane.
The aim of this clinical report is to describe the unusual root canal anatomy of 2 maxillary second molars with 2 separated palatal roots and the endodontic treatment procedures for those teeth. In these presented cases, microscopy was useful to identify distopalatal orifice. Radiographic interpretation was difficult owing to the overlap of the buccal and(More)
We have demonstrated that the rod segments with lateral dendritic chains self-assemble into unique stepped strips in which the rods are aligned parallel to the strip long axis. This unique organization of the rod segments arises from a balance between the energetic gain of a parallel arrangement of the rods and the resulting entropic penalty associated with(More)
Binding of AuCl(4)(-) to amine groups tethered to the interior of a 2 nm siloxane nanocage was determined in solutions containing various concentrations of acid. The mode of binding was inferred from EXAFS and UV-vis spectra to be by ligand exchange of amine for chloride, which implies that the amines remain unprotonated. Cyclic voltammetry confirmed that(More)

Bent-shaped rigid-core molecules with flexible chiral dendrons grafted to the outer side of the bend were synthesized and characterized by circular dichroism, differential scanning calorimetry, X-ray scatterings, and transmission electron microscopy in solution and the solid state. The bent aromatic rods based on hepta- and nonaphenylene with nitrile groups(More)
The immunogenicity of lyophilized porcine cornea is unknown. The purpose of this study was to examine the possibility of using lyophilized porcine cornea as a substrate for ocular surface reconstruction. A porcine cornea stromal button was freeze-dried and vacuum-packed. Lyophilized and fresh porcine corneas were examined histologically, and then implanted(More)
