Alterations in the functional activities of platelets (PLT) in type I diabetes have been widely observed. These changes play a key role in the development of cardiovascular complications in diabetes. Various functional activities of PLT are the result of the interaction of numerous stimuli with PLT plasma membrane. This study was designed to evaluate the(More)
UNLABELLED We outline a metal-free fabrication route of in-plane Ge nanowires on Ge(001) substrates. By positively exploiting the polishing-induced defects of standard-quality commercial Ge(001) wafers, micrometer-length wires are grown by physical vapor deposition in ultra-high-vacuum environment. The shape of the wires can be tailored by the epitaxial(More)
Polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) from diabetic subjects have been found to be abnormal in various functional activities. These activities are mediated by the plasma membrane. This study was designed to evaluate plasma membrane fluidity and polarity in children with type I diabetes mellitus using fluorescence spectroscopy. PMN membrane fluidity and(More)
