Platelet-activating factor (PAF) acetylhydrolase is an enzyme that inactivates PAF. Deficiency of this enzyme is caused by a missense mutation in the gene. We previously found a higher prevalence of this mutation in patients with ischemic stroke. This fact suggests that the mutation might enhance the risk for stroke through its association with(More)

Adsorption of aqueous anions, such as sulfate, arsenite, and oxalate, to oxide surfaces is important in the retardation of toxic species in the environment, but predicting the surface speciation as a function of environmental parameters is a major challenge. Recent laboratory spectroscopic studies defining surface speciation must be integrated with surface(More)

Sorption behavior of As(V) by synthesized schwertmannite was examined under pH 3.3 as a function of As(V) concentration in the initial solution and interpreted in term of solid-solution reactions. Results showed that schwertmannite released 0.62 mmol of SO4(2-) for every 1 mmol of H2AsO4- and 0.24 mmol of OH- that has been sorbed. As(V) replaced SO4 up to(More)
The extended triple layer model (ETLM), which is consistent with spectroscopic and theoretical molecular evidence, is first systematically tested for its capability to model adsorption of arsenate and phosphate, a strong competitor, on a common goethite-based granular porous adsorptive media (Bayoxide E33 (E33)) in water treatment systems under a wide range(More)
