The receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE) and its ligands are involved in the pathogenesis of cancer. Glyoxalase I (GLO1) is an enzyme which detoxifies advanced glycation end product (AGE) precursors. The aim of the study was to find out the relationship between four polymorphisms (single nucleotide polymorphism, SNP) of the RAGE gene (AGER)(More)
This paper reports on large area, metal-free deposition of nanocrystalline gra-phene (NCG) directly onto wet thermally oxidized 150 mm silicon substrates using parallel-plate plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition. Thickness non-uniformities as low as 13% are achieved over the whole substrate. The cluster size L a of the as-obtained films is determined(More)
BACKGROUND It is well recognized that the presence of positive surgical margins (PSM) after radical prostatectomy (RP) adversely affects cancer specific outcomes and recent evidence from randomized trials supports the use of adjuvant radiotherapy in these cases. However, not all of the patients with PSM develop disease recurrence and the policy of adjuvant(More)
Introduction: Vesicular rocks are common on Earth, yet relatively rare among extraterrestrial samples. Vesicles are found in Apollo lunar rocks, angrites, and eucrites [1]. Interestingly , martian basaltic shergottites lack vesicles, surprising given inferred water concentrations ≥1.8 wt% [2] in shergottite mag-mas at depth. Low water contents in bulk(More)
