Colored rices are a hulled grains having red or purple pigments in bran. Especially black rice (Heugjinjubyeo) is considered to be a healthy food in Asia. Black rice is of great interesting because of the possible biological activity with their anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are water-soluble plant pigments and representatives of flavonoids. The anthocyanins in(More)
Current information technology relies on two independent processes: charge-based information processing (microprocessors) and spin-based data storage (magnetic hard drives). The prospect of simultaneously manipulating both charge and spin in a single semiconductor medium is provided by the exciting area of spintronics. Among many others, diluted magnetic(More)
This research deals with mobile robot SLAM algorithm based on extended kalman filter. To enhance a accuracy of robot pose, one more extended kalman filter is used in a rough surface environment. The robot has uncertain kinematic model due to a caterpillar. When the robot drives on irregular surface, it’s heading can be corrupted. We propose a method to(More)
The effects of glucagon on the output of amino acids by the isolated rat liver perfused with recirculating medium were to decrease that of glycine, glutamate, and phenylalanine; to increase greatly that of leucine, isoleucine, valine, and tyrosine; and to increase slightly that of lysine and histidine. In livers perfused with nonrecirculating medium(More)
BACKGROUND: Available data suggest that the accumulation of neutrophils within the myocardium following an ischemic event plays an important role in the pathogenesis of myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury. It is of interest, therefore, to develop pharmacologic agents designed to inhibit neutrophil adhesion to the endothelium. METHODS AND RESULTS: A(More)
BACKGROUND: The authors studied the antifibrillatory effects of the adenosine-triphosphate (ATP)-sparing metabolic modulator ranolazine in a rabbit isolated heart model in which ventricular fibrillation occurs under conditions of hypoxia/reoxygenation in the presence of the ATP-dependent potassium channel opener pinacidil. METHODS AND RESULTS: Ten minutes(More)
BACKGROUND: The influence of a pharmacologic agent on wavefront dynamics during ventricular fibrillation (VF) in a setting of remodeled and healed myocardial infarction (MI) remains poor explored. We hypothesized that nicotine, by virtue of its complex direct and indirect cardiovascular effects, increases wavefront complexity during VF. Specifically, we(More)
Induced molting through feed withdrawal can change the microenvironment of crop and ceca su-ciently to allow them to be the sites of Salmonella colonization in the chicken intestine. This study compares the denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) profiles of microbial crop and cecal communities among molted hens fed similar zinc acetate or zinc(More)
Physiological mechanisms of triggering and occurrence of a short-distance systemic (sub-systemic) oxidative burst (OXB) caused by induction of local OXB induced by the elicitor were investigated using potato tuber tissues. The sub-systemic OXB was detected as luminol-mediated chemiluminescence (CL) on the non-treated side of tissue slices following a(More)
In this article, we report the facile synthesis of metal-free dyes 6 and 7, their solution-based optical and redox properties and their use as sensitizers in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). Our studies indicate that the addition of the second thiophene unit in dye 7, decreases the oxidation and reduction potential and consequently the band gap of the(More)
