We report the first evidence of natural infection of Lymnaea columella with Fasciola hepatica in Argentina. A sample of 601 snails was collected in May 2003 in northeastern Corrientes, a province bounded on the north by Paraguay, on the east by Brazil and on the southeast by Uruguay. Among 500 examined snails, 44 (8.8%) were exclusively infected with F.(More)
Generation of organic stereoisomers with R/S, Z/E, and/or M/P configurations that may contain heteroatoms, multiple bonds, and any kind of cycle (isolated, spiro, condensed, and nested) is described. Inputs for processing are molecular structures in a N_tuple format resident on an automatic (canonical) or manual (non canonical) generated file which are(More)
Fluid (20-30 nl) was aspirated by a modified renal micropuncture technique from vitamin D-, phosphate-deficient rats. The fluid revealed a mineral forming agent which could be sedimented at 140,000 X g for 8 hours, was resistant to acid demineralization, but was destroyed by heating, freezing and thawing as well as sonication, and blocked by phospholipase A(More)
A new stereoisomer generation system named CAMGEC2 for generation of stereoisomers containing isolated and spiro cycles with one or more descriptors among R, S, Z, E, M, and P is developed using Graph Theory. It includes new approaches for symmetry analysis, cycle detection processes in molecular graphs in a modular way, and also an extension of the N_tuple(More)
The electrical conduction properties of lateral and vertical silicon nanowires (SiNWs) were investigated using a conductive-probe atomic force microscopy (AFM). Horizontal SiNWs, which were synthesized by the in-plane solid-liquid-solid technique, are randomly deployed into an undoped hydrogenated amorphous silicon layer. Local current mapping shows that(More)
Chemical doping of graphene is a key process for the modulation of its electronic properties and the design and fabrication of graphene-based nanoelectronic devices. Here, we study the adsorption of diluted concentrations of nitric acid (HNO3) onto monolayer graphene/4H-SiC (0001) to induce a variation of the graphene work function (WF). Raman spectroscopy(More)
Conductive-probe atomic force microscopy (CP-AFM) measurements reveal the existence of a conductive channel at the interface between p-type hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) and n-type crystalline silicon (c-Si) as well as at the interface between n-type a-Si:H and p-type c-Si. This is in good agreement with planar conductance measurements that show a(More)
Large-area graphene film is of great interest for a wide spectrum of electronic applications, such as field effect devices, displays, and solar cells, among many others. Here, we fabricated heterostructures composed of graphene (Gr) grown by chemical vapor deposition (CVD) on copper substrate and transferred to SiO2/Si substrates, capped by n‑ or p-type(More)
