Photoassimilating mature leaves of Cucumis melo exported carbon at a rate of 1.7 mg C·dm-2·h-1. Radiolabeling with 14C showed that stachyose and raffinose are the main carbohydrates translocated. Autoradiograms indicated that sieve elements of the abaxial phloem of minor veins are the sole conduits for carbon export from mature leaves and carbon import into(More)
Both hypoxic and inflammatory conditions activate transcription factors such as hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1α and nuclear factor (NF)-κB, which play a crucial role in adaptive responses to these challenges. In dendritic cells (DC), lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced HIF1α accumulation requires NF-κB signaling and promotes inflammatory DC function. The(More)
The present work shows a significant enhancement of the photoelectrochemical water-splitting performance of anodic TiO(2) nanotube layers grown on low concentration (0.01-0.2 at% Ru) Ti-Ru alloys. Under optimized preparation conditions (0.05 at% Ru, 450 °C annealing) the water splitting rate of the oxide tubes could be 6-fold increased. Moreover, the(More)
We use a highly aligned Ta(2)O(5) nanochannel structure to fabricate alkali metal ion (Na, K, Rb or Cs) doped Ta(3)N(5)via solution seeding and thermal conversion in NH(3). Under optimized conditions the resulting doped structures show a strongly enhanced visible light water splitting performance in comparison to undoped Ta(3)N(5).
Kinetics of malt starch hydrolysis by endogeneous alpha- and beta-amylases has been experimentally investigated in laboratory-, pilot- and industrial-scale reactors. The production rates of glucose, maltose, maltotriose and total extract, and the separate alpha- and beta-amylases deactivation rates are measured at varying mashing temperature and different(More)
The interphase structure of the constitutive heterochromatin of the field vole, Microtus agrestis, was studied in the epithelium of the intestinal and respiratorial tracts, and was compared with the nuclear size and the proliferation rate of these tissues. For determining the nuclear structure and the mitotic and DNA labeling rate, Feulgen and HE-stained(More)
In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, toxic concentrations of Na+ orLi+ ions induce the expression of the cation-extrusion ATPase gene, ENA1. Several well-studied signal transduction pathways are known correlating high salinity to the transcriptional activation of ENA1. Nevertheless, information on the actual sensing mechanism initiating these pathways is limited.(More)
One of the main challenges in drug development is the prediction of in vivo toxicity based on in vitro data. The standard cultivation system for primary human hepatocytes is based on monolayer cultures, even if it is known that these conditions result in a loss of hepatocyte morphology and of liver-specific functions, such as drug-metabolizing enzymes and(More)
 In the quest for complexes modelling functional characteristics of metal sulfur oxidoreductases, a series of molybdenum nitrosyl complexes with sulfur-dominated coordination sphere was synthesized. Treatment of the 16, 17 and 18 valence electron (VE) complexes [Mo(L)(NO)('S4')] (1–3) [L = SPh (1), PMe3 (2), NO (3), 'S4'2– = 1,2-bis-(2-mercaptophenylthio)(More)
Syntheses of neutral 'buS2'-, 'S /and 'buS4'and of anionic buS: -complexes with various main group and transition metals are described. The complexes were prepared by reacting the neutral sulfur ligands or their alkali salts with the metal halide or alkoxide. The ligands coordinate to metal ions in normal as well as high oxidation states. No redox reactions(More)
