The effects of synthetic 1-cyano-2-hydroxy-3-butene (CHB), a racemic mixture of the (R)- and (S)-enantiomers, were studied in adult male rats. The compound given by gavage in olive oil at doses of 25-200 mg/kg causes toxic effects on the pancreas that resemble those seen when naturally occurring CHB is given to rats. At 6 h after dosing, pancreatic edema is(More)
We have studied the phase-slip process by which charge-density-wave (CDW) current is converted to single-particle current at electrical contacts. Transport and X-ray scattering measurements indicate that an excess voltage Vps dropped between current contacts induces a large static deformation of the CDW phase. The measured Vpsand temperature-dependent(More)
