The hepatocyte proteome in organotypic rat liver models and the influence of the local microenvironment
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2017-06-20)
Background: Liver models that closely mimic the in vivo microenvironment are useful for understanding liver functions, capabilities, and intercellular communication processes. Three-dimensional (3D) liver models assembled ...
Nanoparticulate Nickel-Hosting Phases in Sulfidic Environments: Effects of Ferrous Iron and Bacterial Presence on Mineral Formation Mechanism and Solid-Phase Nickel Distribution
The precipitation of nickel with sulfide is an important process governing the bioavailability of Ni in natural waters, and this process has the potential to effectively remove aqueous Ni contaminants in near-surface ...

3D Hepatic Cultures Simultaneously Maintain Primary Hepatocyte and Liver Sinusoidal Endothelial Cell Phenotypes
Developing in vitro engineered hepatic tissues that exhibit stable phenotype is a major challenge in the field of hepatic tissue engineering. However, the rapid dedifferentiation of hepatic parenchymal (hepatocytes) and ...
Sequence verification of synthetic DNA by assembly of sequencing reads
Gene synthesis attempts to assemble user-defined DNA sequences with base-level precision. Verifying the sequences of construction intermediates and the final product of a gene synthesis project is a critical part of the ...
Abiotic synthesis of graphite in hydrothermal vents
Deciphering the origin, age, and composition of deep marine organic carbon remains a challenge in understanding the dynamics of the marine carbon cycle. In particular, the composition of aged organic carbon and what allows ...
Nanotechnology in the real world: Redeveloping the nanomaterial consumer products inventory
To document the marketing and distribution of nano-enabled products into the commercial marketplace, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies created the Nanotechnology ...
Role of coexisting tetragonal regions in the rhombohedral phase of Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3-xat.%BaTiO3 crystals on enhanced piezoelectric properties on approaching the morphotropic phase boundary
(AIP Publishing, 2012-01-01)
The ferroelectric domain and local structures of Na0.5Bi0.5TiO3-xat.%BaTiO3 (NBT-x%BT) crystals for x = 0, 4.5, and 5.5 have been investigated by transmission electron microscopy. The results show that the size of polar ...
