Carbon nanotubes have widespread applications in multiple engineering disciplines. However, little is known about the toxicity or interaction of these particles with cells. Carbon nanotube films were grown using a microwave plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition system. Human epidermal keratinocytes (HEK) were exposed to 0.1, 0.2, and 0.4 mg/ml of(More)
Paleoclimatic and paleogeological events have been identified as being the two main drivers of genetic structuring in extant organisms. We used a montane stream-dwelling frog, Quasipaa boulengeri, to explore the relative roles played by these drivers on species in southern China, a region needing thorough studies. We detected four major matrilines, and no(More)
Interactions of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with human epidermal keratinocytes (HEKs) were studied with respect to the effect of surfactant on dispersion of MWCNT aggregates and cytotoxicity. Our earlier studies had shown that the unmodified MWCNTs were localized within the cytoplasmic vacuoles of HEKs and elicited an inflammatory response.(More)
The skin permeation and partitioning of a fluorinated quinolone antibacterial agent, enoxacin, in liposomes and niosomes, after topical application, were elucidated in the present study. In vitro percutaneous absorption experiments were performed on nude mouse skin with Franz diffusion cells. The influence of vesicles on the physicochemical property and(More)
The purpose of this study was designed to investigate the in vitro and in vivo skin absorption of capsaicin and nonivamide from hydrogels. Various commercialized creams of capsaicin were also compared with hydrogels. Both skin stripping technique and Mexameter were applied to evaluate the level of capsaicin and nonivamide retained in stratum corneum (SC)(More)
A comparison study has been conducted on the formation of catalyst nanoparticles on a high surface tension metal and low surface tension oxide for carbon nanotube CNT growth via catalytic chemical vapor deposition CCVD . Silicon dioxide SiO2 and tantalum have been deposited as supporting layers before deposition of a thin layer of iron catalyst. Iron(More)
