Knowledge concerning in vitro regeneration and developmental responses of Abelmoschus moschatus Medik. L. (muskdana plant) is limited. Aseptic seedlings were successfully raised on Murashige and Skoog (MS) basal medium augmented with GA (0.5 mg L). The seeds did not germinate on MS medium alone. 3 1 Cotyledonary Node (CN) gave the best response with regard(More)
Self-assembled nanowires offer the prospect of accurate and scalable device engineering at an atomistic scale for applications in electronics, photonics and biology. However, deterministic nanowire growth and the control of dopant profiles and heterostructures are limited by an incomplete understanding of the role of commonly used catalysts and specifically(More)
BACKGROUND The present paper describes a topological model of biofeedback. This model incorporates input from a sensory organ and a transduction phase mediated through catecholamine production in the feedback path. The transduction phase comprises both conservative and dissipative systems, from which the appropriate output is combined in a closed loop. (More)
Cancer development and progression are closely associated with inflammation. NF-κB (nuclear factor κB) provides a mechanistic link between inflammation and cancer, and is a major factor controlling the ability of malignant cells to resist tumour surveillance mechanisms. NF-κB might also regulate tumour angiogenesis and invasiveness and the signalling(More)
A twin-plane based nanowire growth mechanism is established using Au catalyzed Ge nanowire growth as a model system. Video-rate lattice-resolved environmental transmission electron microscopy shows a convex, V-shaped liquid catalyst-nanowire growth interface for a ⟨112⟩ growth direction that is composed of two Ge {111} planes that meet at a twin boundary.(More)
In situ observation of the carbon nanotube nucleation process accompanied by dynamic reconstruction of the catalyst particle morphology is considered within a thermodynamic approach. It reveals the driving force for the detachment of the sp(2)-carbon cap, so-called lift-off-a crucial event in nanotube growth. A continuum model and detailed atomistic(More)
Increased level of ROS causes oxidative stress and leads to various pathological conditions including cancer. Therefore antioxidants should contribute to cancer prevention by improving antioxidant defense system and thereby protecting the cell from oxidative damage. In the present study we have validated the hypothesis by evaluating the antioxidant action(More)
We report in situ environmental transmission electron microscope observations of the nucleation and growth of multi-wall and single-wall carbon nanotubes formed by the catalytic decomposition of acetylene (C2H2) on Ni/SiO2 catalyst. The growth rate, structure and morphology of the carbon nanotubes formed depended upon reaction temperature and pressure.(More)
The dynamic evolution of nanocatalyst particle shape and carbon composition during the initial stages of single-walled carbon nanotube growth by chemical vapor deposition synthesis is investigated. Classical reactive and ab initio molecular dynamics simulations are used, along with environmental transmission electron microscope video imaging analyses. A(More)
