Toxicity of Silver Nanoparticles at the Air-Liquid Interface
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2013-01-01)
Silver nanoparticles are one of the most prevalent nanomaterials in consumer products. Some of these products are likely to be aerosolized, making silver nanoparticles a high priority for inhalation toxicity assessment. ...
Measurement and modeling of transcriptional noise in the cell cycle regulatory network
(Landes Bioscience, 2013-10-01)
Discovery and ramifications of incidental Magnéli phase generation and release from industrial coal-burning
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-01-12)
Coal, as one of the most economic and abundant energy sources, remains the leading fuel for producing electricity worldwide. Yet, burning coal produces more global warming CO2 relative to all other fossil fuels, and it is ...
Recent advances in understanding the terminal Ediacaran Earth-life system in South China and Arctic Siberia
The terminal Ediacaran contains dramatic changes in biogeochemical cycles, many of which are closely coupled with evolutionary transitions in the corresponding fossil records. Dynamic redox conditions may have caused a ...
Protein-aided formation of triangular silver nanoprisms with enhanced SERS performance
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-05-10)
In this work, we present a modified seed-mediated synthetic strategy for the growth of silver nanoprisms with low shape polydispersity, narrow size distribution and tailored plasmonic absorbance. During the seed nucleation ...
Size dependent ion-exchange of large mixed-metal complexes into Nafion® membranes
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-08-18)
Perfluorosulfonate ionomers have been shown to demonstrate a profound affinity for large cationic complexes, and the exchange of these ions may be used to provide insight regarding Nafion® morphology by contrasting molecular ...
High-frequency irreversible electroporation is an effective tumor ablation strategy that induces immunologic cell death and promotes systemic anti-tumor immunity
Background: Despite promising treatments for breast cancer, mortality rates remain high and treatments for metastatic disease are limited. High-frequency irreversible electroporation (H-FIRE) is a novel tumor ablation ...
Summarizing cellular responses as biological process networks
Background Microarray experiments can simultaneously identify thousands of genes that show significant perturbation in expression between two experimental conditions. Response networks, computed through the integration ...
Antibacterial efficacy of core-shell nanostructures encapsulating gentamicin against an in vivo intracellular Salmonella model
(Dove Medical Press, 2009-01-01)
Pluronic based core-shell nanostructures encapsulating gentamicin were designed in this study. Block copolymers of (PAA(+/-)Na-b-(PEO-b-PPO-b-PEO)-b-PAA(+/-)Na) were blended with PAA(-) Na(+) and complexed with the ...
