The most effective method to reduce CO 2 gas emission from the steam power plant is to improve its performance by elevating the steam temperature to more than 700 • C. For this, it is necessary to develop applicable materials at high temperatures. Ni-based Alloy 617 and 12Cr steel are used in steam power plants, due to their remarkable mechanical(More)
To the Editor Werner syndrome, an autosomal recessive disorder causing premature aging, is caused by truncating mutations in Werner syndrome gene (WRN) that encodes a DNA helicase with exonuclease activity [1]. Patients with Werner syndrome have an increased cancer incidence as well, suggesting that the lack normal WRN function affects tumorigenesis [2].(More)
To the Editor: KNSTRN gene encodes the kinetochore-localized astrin/ spag5-binding protein that modulates chromosome segregation during mitosis [1]. A recent genomic study identified recurrent somatic mutations of the KNSTRN in 19 % of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) [2]. Of the mutations detected, more than half of them were recurrent at a specific(More)
The present study investigated the role of the peripheral NR2 subunits of N-methyl-d-aspartatic acid (NMDA) receptors in inflammatory orofacial pain. Experiments were carried out using adult male Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 220 to 280 g. Formalin (5%, 50 μl) was applied subcutaneously to the vibrissa pad. For each animal, the number of noxious behavioral(More)
