Perillae fructus (perilla seed) is a traditional medicinal herb used to treat bronchial asthma in Oriental medical clinics. ST36 is one of the most widely used acupuncture points, particularly for immune system regulation. Injection of an herbal extract into an acupuncture point (herbal acupuncture) is a therapeutic technique combining both acupuncture and(More)
Although salt is known to influence the performance of nitrification significantly, it has not been well reported on how salt affects ammonia-oxidizing bacterial (AOB) community compositions and dynamics in wastewater treatment bioreactors. In this study, these questions were evaluated in a full-scale bioreactor treating saline wastewater. Clone library(More)
Highly porous zirconia (ZrO(2)) bone scaffolds, fabricated by a replication technique using polymeric sponge, were coated with hydroxyapatite (HA). To prevent the chemical reactions between ZrO(2) and HA, an intermediate fluorapatite (FA) layer was introduced. The strength of the porous ZrO(2) was higher than that of pure HA by a factor of 7, suggesting the(More)
Silicon nanowires (SiNWs) offer promising inorganic nanostructures for biomedical application. Here, we report the development of a novel SiNW array designed for isolating primary CD4(+) T lymphocytes from the heterogeneous mixture of cell populations. Our system employed the specific high-affinity binding features of streptavidin (STR)-functionalized SiNW(More)
We have successfully investigated the thermal conductivity (κ) of single-crystalline bismuth nanowires (BiNWs) with [110] growth direction, via a straightforward and powerful four-point-probe 3-ω technique in the temperature range 10-280 K. The BiNWs, which are well known as the most effective material for thermoelectric (TE) device applications, were(More)
We report the development of a novel quartz nanopillar (QNP) array cell separation system capable of selectively capturing and isolating a single cell population including primary CD4(+) T lymphocytes from the whole pool of splenocytes. Integrated with a photolithographically patterned hemocytometer structure, the streptavidin (STR)-functionalized-QNP(More)
We report on a systematic study of the thermal transport characteristics of both as-grown zinc oxide and gallium nitride nanowires (NWs) via the four-point-probe 3-ω method in the temperature range 130-300 K. Both as-grown NWs were synthesized by a vapor-liquid-solid growth mechanism, and show clear n-type semiconducting behavior without any defects, which(More)
Nanoparticulate platinum (II) (nano Pt) is a powerful antioxidant that is widely used to scavenge reactive oxygen species (ROS). The antioxidant activity of nano Pt has gained attention as a potentially useful therapeutic for a variety of diseases including cancer and aging. In the present study, we prepared nanoparticulate saponin-Pt (II) (nano saponin-Pt)(More)
The recovery stress of martensitic shape-memory alloy [SMA] wires can be used to confine concrete, and the confining effectiveness of the SMA wires was previously proved through experimental tests. However, the behavior of SMA wires under recovery stress has not been seriously investigated. Thus, this study conducted a series of tests of NiTiNb martensitic(More)
We investigated nano-Schottky diodes of gallium nitride nanowires with three Schottky metals (Cr, Ti, and Au) using current-voltage characteristics. All of the GaN nano-Schottky diodes showed a rectifying behavior. The abnormal electrical characteristics of a single GaN nanowire Schottky diode can be explained by a thermionic-field emission and an(More)
