Structural studies of high voltage cathode materials are necessary to understand their chemistry to improve the electrochemical performance for applications in lithium ion batteries. LiNiPO4 nanorods and nanoplates are synthesized via a one pot synthesis using supercritical fluid process at 450 °C for 10 min. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis confirmed(More)
The Sec translocon facilitates transportation of newly synthesized polypeptides from the cytoplasm to the lumen/periplasm across the phospholipid membrane. Although the polypeptide-conducting machinery is formed by the SecYEG-SecA complex in bacteria, its transportation efficiency is markedly enhanced by SecDF. A previous study suggested that SecDF assumes(More)
Solitary thermals and continuous plume thermals both occur in nature, and the intermediake case of interacting successive thermals in a series may also be an important part of atmospheric convection. This analysis shows that residual updraft and vorticity concentration in the wake of a preceding thermal can have important effects on its successor. A fluid(More)
Endometriosis-associated ovarian cancers demonstrate substantial morphological and genetic diversity. The transcription factor, hepatocyte nuclear factor (HNF)-1β, may be one of several key genes involved in the identity of ovarian clear cell carcinoma (CCC). The present study reviews a considerably expanded set of HNF-1β-associated genes and proteins that(More)
Individual thermals rising through the atmosphere may encounter the wake of one or more thermals that started their rise at a n earlier time. Laboratory simulations show that the growth rate of second and third thermals in a series is enhanced relative t o that of a solitary thermal. The enhancement is due to a gain in momentum from the wake of a preceding(More)
