In this study, the role of glycosaminoglycans in fibronectin-mediated cell attachment to collagen has been investigated. While it has been established that fibronectin possesses binding sites for several glycosaminoglycans, it was found that only dextran sulfate and macromolecular heparin could decrease the initial rate of cell attachment to collagen.

Controlling nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions from diesel passenger cars during real-world driving is one of the major technical challenges facing diesel auto manufacturers. Three main technologies are available for this purpose: exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), lean-burn NOx traps (LNT), and selective catalytic reduction (SCR). Seventy-three Euro 6 diesel(More)
Hybridization offers great potential for decreasing pollutant and carbon dioxide emissions of diesel cars. However, an assessment of the real-world emissions performance of modern diesel hybrids is missing. Here, we test three diesel-hybrid cars on the road and benchmark our findings with two cars against tests on the chassis dynamometer and model(More)
this paper discusses the impacts of new vehicle mass reduction data on co2 benefit and cost curves for eU light-duty vehicles in the 2020-2025 timeframe. this paper is the third in a series, with the previous two papers describing the methodology and data used to generate co2 cost curves for eU vehicles. those papers have been published as icct working(More)
