Constituents in food and fluids, tobacco chemicals and many drugs are candidates for oral absorption and oxidative metabolism. On this basis, the expression of cytochrome P450 isozymes (CYPs) and the conversion of CYP substrates were analysed in reference to buccal mucosa. A RT-PCR based analysis of human buccal tissue from 13 individuals demonstrated(More)
The metabolic detoxification capacity may critically regulate the susceptibility of human tissues to cancer development. We used standardized and quantitative, reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (StaRT-PCR) and microarray chip techniques to analyze transcript levels of multiple detoxification enzymes in cultured normal human oral keratinocytes(More)
We report the synthesis of extended two-dimensional organic networks on Cu(111), Ag(111), Cu(110), and Ag(110) from thiophene-based molecules. A combination of scanning tunnelling microscopy and X-ray photoemission spectroscopy yields insight into the reaction pathways from single molecules towards the formation of two-dimensional organometallic and(More)
We report a straightforward method to produce high-quality nitrogen-doped graphene on SiC(0001) using direct nitrogen ion implantation and subsequent stabilization at temperatures above 1300 K. We demonstrate that double defects, which comprise two nitrogen defects in a second-nearest-neighbor (meta) configuration, can be formed in a controlled way by(More)
The aim of this study was the molecular characterization of primary drug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains in Thailand. We examined a group of M. tuberculosis isolates from newly registered tuberculosis (TB) cases, collected at the largest university hospital, the Siriraj Hospital, in Thailand. Of 76 selected drug-resistant M. tuberculosis(More)
Enzymes involved in various protective and metabolic processes of carbonyl compounds were analysed utilising a micro-array method in a three-stage in vitro model for oral carcinogenesis involving cultured normal, immortalised and malignant human oral keratinocytes. A complete transcript profiling of identified carbonyl-metabolising enzymes belonging to the(More)
Nurse scheduling is a difficult and time consuming task. The schedule has to determine the day to day shift assignments of each nurse for a specified period of time in a way that satisfies the given requirements as much as possible, taking into account the wishes of nurses as closely as possible. This paper presents a constraint-based, artificial(More)
