Thyroid hormone (TH or T3) and TH-receptor beta (TRbeta) have been reported to be relevant for cochlear development and hearing function. Mutations in the TRbeta gene result in deafness associated with resistance to TH syndrome. The effect of TRalpha1 on neither hearing function nor cochlear T3 target genes has been described to date. It is also uncertain(More)
Benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon that is found in tobacco smoke and various environmental contaminants and has been shown to be carcinogenic and mutagenic in animal and cell culture studies, respectively. Research studies suggest that various nutritional factors such as the antioxidant vitamins and selenium are very promising as(More)
The quantum limits on measurements of small changes in the length of a Fabry-Perot cavity are calculated. The cavity is modelled by a pair of dissimilar mirrors oriented perpendicular to a one-dimensional axis of infinite extent. The continuous spectrum of spatial modes of the system is derived, and the electromagnetic field is quantized in terms of a(More)
marrow cells were reported to mediate IL-3-induced M2 macrophage differentiation in mice (Kuroda et al., 2009). Basophils also produce thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), which amplifies M2 polarization in allergic airway inflammation (Han et al., 2013). Activated basophils release histamine, which may induce macrophages to express the M2-related chemokine(More)
PURPOSE To study the effect in vitro of different fluoridation methods after intensive bleaching on the color of enamel slabs during a severe staining challenge with red wine. METHODS 75 specimens were equally divided among five groups. Group 1 (no bleaching, no wine) served as control. Groups 2, 3 and 4 underwent bleaching with 35 % H2O2 for 10 minutes(More)
