This paper presents an analytical expression for the diffusing capacity (Theta(t)) of the red blood cell (RBC) for any reactive gas in terms of size and shape of the RBC, thickness of the unstirred plasma layer surrounding the RBC, diffusivities and solubilities of the gas in RBC and boundary layer, hematocrit, and the slope of the dissociation curve. The(More)
The encapsulation of molecular cargo within well-defined supramolecular architectures is highly challenging. Synthetic hosts are desirable because of their well-defined nature and addressability. Encapsulation of biomacromolecules within synthetic hosts is especially challenging because of the former's large size, sensitive nature, retention of(More)
Using a capacitive photocurrent measurement technique, we demonstrate the ability of both semiconducting and metallic single wall nanotubes to function as photodetectors over a wide spectral range. We observe clear peaks in the photo induced displacement current of a nanotube-plated capacitor that correspond directly to the semiconducting and metallic(More)
MicroRNAs control gene expression either by RNA transcript degradation or translational repression. Expressions of miRNAs are highly regulated in tissues, disruption of which leads to disease. How this regulation is achieved and maintained is still largely unknown. MiRNAs that reside on clustered or polycistronic transcripts represent a more complex case(More)
Transient Receptor Potential Canonical (TRPC) channels are implicated in modulating neurite outgrowth. The expression pattern of TRPCs changes significantly during brain development, suggesting that fine-tuning TRPC expression may be important for orchestrating neuritogenesis. To study how alterations in the TRPC expression pattern affect neurite outgrowth,(More)
An in vitro plant regeneration and genetic transformation protocol was established in jute (Corchorus capsularis L. var JRC321). One-day-old apical, meristematic tissues of germinating seedlings were used as explants. Multiple shoots were regenerated from each explant using Murashige and Skoog basal medium containing 1.78 µM benzylamino purine and 4.92 µM(More)
A small enzyme showing diaphorase activity was purified from culture supernatant of Clostridium kluyveri and its N-terminal amino acid sequence was determined. This sequence identified a gene (diaA) encoding a protein (DiaA) of 229 amino acids with a predicted molecular weight of 24,981 in the genomic DNA sequence database of C. kluyveri constructed by the(More)
This work uses thermo-gravimetric, differential thermo-gravimetric and differential thermal analyses to evaluate the kinetics of pyrolysis (in inert/N(2) atmosphere) and (oxidative) combustion of microalgae Chlorella vulgaris by heating from 50 to 800 °C at heating rates of 5-40 °C/min. This study shows that combustion produces higher biomass conversion(More)
