Organotin compounds such as triphenyltin (TPT) and tributyltin (TBT) act as endocrine disruptors through the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) signaling pathway. We recently found that TPT is a particularly strong agonist of PPARγ. To elucidate the mechanism underlying organotin-dependent PPARγ activation, we here analyzed the(More)
Mass transfer in porous media has been of interest to a number of researchers in the field of engineering. The transfer of substances is generally attributed to diffusion, convection of pore fluid and, in some cases, reaction with surfaces of porous media. It is difficult to understand owing to the great sensitivity to ambient conditions such as gravity,(More)
