The binding of six furocoumarins (angelicin, psoralen, 8-methoxypsoralen, 5-methoxypsoralen, 8-methylpsoralen, 4,5'8-trimethylpsoralen) to human serum and human serum albumin was studied by equilibrium dialysis using tritium labelled compounds. The results indicated that in serum all furocoumarins are bound mostly by albumin, the extent of binding being(More)
The ability of 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) to bind human serum albumin has been investigated in vitro through equilibrium dialysis and fluorescence quenching. By means of the first technique it was observed that, at concentrations presumably close to those obtainable in vivo following its administration in the photochemotherapy of psoriasis, over 80% of 8-MOP(More)
A wireless ad hoc network is introduced that enables inter-robot communication and shared computation among multiple robots with PC/104-based single board computers running the real-time application interface patched Linux operating system. Through the use of IEEE 802.11 ad hoc technology and User Datagram Protocol, each robot is able to exchange data(More)
Double-differential cross sections of light ions (p, d, t, 3 He, and α) from carbon, oxygen, and silicon induced by 175 MeV quasi mono-energetic neutrons were measured using the Medley setup at the The Svedberg Laboratory (TSL) in order to benchmark evaluated nuclear data and nuclear reaction models. The Medley is a conventional spectrometer system which(More)
Satellites’ rendezvous and docking is a challenging problem for space exploitation. Saving time, fuel, or any other resource, expressed for example as a combination of the two previous ones, is not a straightforward task if onboard calculation is required to make the control autonomous. A direct method for a rapid generation of near-optimal trajectories of(More)
The binding of some cephalosporin antibiotics, namely cephalothin, cephaloridine and cephalexin, to serum albumins was quantitized using a fluorescence probe technique. The results suggest that these drugs bind to hydrophobic sites on serum albumins. The association constants of the three drugs with bovine serum albumin showed the strongest binding for(More)
