Escherichia coli is an important microbial indicator of fecal contamination, making accurate quantitative detection of E. coli a key to ensuring public health. In this study, a microbial fuel cell (MFC) was used as a detection unit of an E. coli sensor, and specific enzymes expressed in E. coli, such as β-D-galactosidase (GAL) and β-D-glucuronidase (GUS),(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare outcomes between aquatic and land-based exercises during early-phase recovery from acute lower extremity ligament injuries in elite athletes. DESIGN A single-blinded, covariate adaptive randomized, controlled study. SETTING National training center for elite athletes. PARTICIPANTS Twenty-two athletes with isolated grade I or II(More)
This paper presents the design, fabrication and evaluation of a micro methanol reformer complete with a heat source. The micro system consists of the steam reforming reactor of methanol, the catalytic decomposition reactor of hydrogen peroxide, and a heat exchanger between the two reactors. In the present study, catalytic decomposition of hydrogen peroxide(More)
AIM To evaluate the risk factors for ischemic-type biliary lesion (ITBL) after ABO-incompatible (ABO-I) adult living donor liver transplantation (ALDLT). METHODS Among 141 ALDLTs performed in our hospital between 2008 and 2014, 27 (19%) were ABO-I ALDLT and 114 were ABO-identical/compatible ALDLT. In this study, we extensively analyzed the(More)
The effects were observed of feeding a high-temperature-micro-time (HTMT)-treated diet of high-quality extruded soybean (ESB) on trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) incorporation in intra-muscular fat and on the lipid metabolism of twelve Holstein steers. The animals were randomly allocated to three groups, the control group being fed on a(More)
Introduction QR codes have been used for several Augmented Reality applications and services However, it is difficult to allow user interactions Background Information QR code pattern is generated from a text string according to standard rules Random modification of the pattern may result in recognition failure Difficult to perform interactions on physical(More)
Nitrous oxide (N2O) has been recognized as a relatively strong greenhouse gas. Heterogeneous catalytic processes have been mainly used to decompose N2O at high temperature. Characteristics of N2O decomposition by catalyst-assisted cold plasma were investigated in the present study. Tubular quartz reactor with annular-shaped electrodes was prepared and(More)
This paper describes the synthesis and characterization of La0.8Sr0.2NiO3 nano-perovskite type catalyst for steam-CO2 reforming (SCR) and CO2 reforming (DR) of methane. Effect of gelation agents such as PVA, EDTA and PAA on nano-perovskite structures was investigated. XRD, H2-TPR and FT-IR analysis were used to characterize the prepared catalysts. The(More)
