Whereas endothelial responses to shear stress have been studied extensively, the responses to circumferential vascular stretch are yet poorly defined. Circumferential stretch in pulmonary microvessels is largely determined by the transmural pressure gradient, hence by both vascular perfusion and alveolar ventilation pressures. Here, we have studied the(More)
The viability of molecules with planar hexacoordinate carbon atoms is demonstrated by density-functional theory (DFT) calculations for CB6(2-), a CB6H2 isomer, and three C3B4 minima. All of these species have six pi electrons and are aromatic. Although other C3B4 isomers are lower in energy, the activation barriers for the rearrangements of the three planar(More)
