MIL-HDBK-217-A favorite target  

Microsoft Academic Search

The authors compare and contrast the physics of failure (POF) approach with the traditional MIL-HDBK-217 approach. It is concluded that a POF approach is not appropriate for use on many system development efforts because of cost and complexity; and it is clearly not applicable to devices already in production. The two approaches are attacking different problems (i.e. basic component design

Synthesis, characterization and sorption properties of NH2-MIL-47.  

PubMed

An amino functionalized vanadium-containing Metal Organic Framework, NH(2)-MIL-47, has been synthesized by a hydrothermal reaction in an autoclave. Alternatively, a synthesis route via microwave enhanced irradiation has been optimized to accelerate the synthesis. The NH(2)-MIL-47 exhibits the same topology as MIL-47, in which the V center is octahedrally coordinated. After an exchange procedure in DMF the V(+III) center is oxidized to V(+IV), which is confirmed by EPR and XPS measurements. The CO(2) and CH(4) adsorption properties have been evaluated and compared to MIL-47, showing that both MOFs have an almost similar adsorption capacity and affinity for CO(2). DFT-based molecular modeling calculations were performed to obtain more insight into the adsorption positions for CO(2) in NH(2)-MIL-47. Furthermore our calculated adsorption enthalpies agree well with the experimental values. PMID:23073025

MEMS and mil/aero: technology push and market pull  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

MEMS offers attractive solutions to high-density fluidics, inertial, optical, switching and other demanding military/aerospace (mil/aero) challenges. However, full acceptance must confront the realities of production-scale producibility, verifiability, testability, survivability, as well as long-term reliability. Data on these `..ilities' are crucial, and are central in funding and deployment decisions. Similarly, mil/aero users must highlight specific missions, environmental exposures, and procurement issues, as well as the quirks of its designers. These issues are particularly challenging in MEMS, because of the laws of physics and business economics, as well as the risks of deploying leading-edge technology into no-fail applications. This paper highlights mil/aero requirements, and suggests reliability/qualification protocols, to guide development effort and to reassure mil/aero users that MEMS labs are mindful of the necessary realities.

Partially fluorinated MIL-47 and Al-MIL-53 frameworks: influence of functionalization on sorption and breathing properties.  

PubMed

Two perfluorinated metal hydroxo terephthalates [M(III)(OH)(BDC-F)]·n(guests) (M(III) = V, MIL-47-F-AS or 1-AS; Al, Al-MIL-53-F-AS or 2-AS) (BDC-F = 2-fluoro-1,4-benzenedicarboxylate; AS = as-synthesized) have been synthesized by a hydrothermal method using microwave irradiation (1-AS) or conventional electric heating (2-AS), respectively. The unreacted or occluded H(2)BDC-F molecules can be removed under vacuum by direct thermal activation or exchange of guest molecules followed by thermal treatment leading to the empty-pore forms of the title compounds [V(IV)(O)(BDC-F)] (MIL-47-F, 1) and [Al(III)(OH)(BDC-F)] (Al-MIL-53-F, 2). Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and temperature-dependent XRPD (TDXRPD) experiments indicate that the compounds are stable up to 385 and 480 °C, respectively. Both of the thermally activated compounds exhibit significant microporosity, as verified by N(2), CO(2), n-hexane, o- and p-xylene sorption analyses. The structural changes of 2 upon adsorption of CO(2), n-hexane, o- and p-xylene were highly influenced due to functionalization by -F groups, as compared to parent Al-MIL-53. The -F groups also introduce a certain degree of hydrophobicity into the frameworks, as demonstrated by the H(2)O sorption analyses. PMID:23381460

The Fairchild MIL-STD-1553 Serial Multiplex Bus Tester  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Fairchild Serial Multiplex Bus Tester (SMBT) is a general purpose computer controlled MIL-STD-1553 stimulus/response/analyzer. SMBT has been selected to fulfill the data bus testing requirements of the Air Force Modular Automatic Test Equipment (MATE) systems. The design is three separate devices or functions: a monitor, a bus controller, and a remote terminal simulator, which may be operated in any combination. The purpose is to integrate the Monitor, Controller, and Remote Terminal functions into a single unit. SMBT may be controlled and synchronized by a master computer performing a coordinated total checkout of a unit under test. The monitor allows a collection of 1024 word 'windows' of bus traffic and simultaneously accumulate error statistics in all bus traffic. A system self check is incorporated as an additional feature of the design. In summary, the SMBT is designed to provide necessary stimulus, response and analysis capability for MIL-STD-1553 Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) testing.

A modular approach to MIL-STD-1553 simulation support  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

With the adoption of the MIL-STD-1553 multiplex data bus as a communication protocol in avionics systems, evolves the need for dedicated, flexible laboratory facilities as test and development support centers. This flexibility has been difficult to achieve in the past because of the large amount of special purpose hardware involved in the emulation of a MIL-STD-1553 system. This paper describes and discusses a state-of-the-art approach to developing a real-time computer simulation of any established and/or future 1553 system, using as the core element the Multiplex Bus Terminal (MBT). Such a system can be configured to the desired level of complexity due to the software programmability of the MBT hardware. Utilizing a comprehensive package of high level language callable drivers and handlers, or by assembly level real-time programming support, the user can program the MBT for use as a stand alone, hot bench test station, or as the key element in a full scale, computer modeled, 1553 avionic system.

We conducted an airgun survey in the waters of Ascension Island in May 1999 to determine new locations and depths for three Missile Impact Location System (MILS) hydrophones (ASC23, ASC24, and ASC26) currently in use by the Prototype International Data Center (PIDC) and the National Data Center (NDC). The nominal and new locations are summarized in Table 1. Although not rigorous, errors in the new locations and depths are conservatively estimated to be less than 100 m. The hydrophones are either on or near the ocean bottom in all three cases. The new depths are consistent with the following: Direct-phase airgun arrivals; Bathymetry determined along the track of the ship used for this airgun survey; Reflected phases from the airgun data; and Depths given in the original hydrophone installation report.

Technical publication transfer test with McDonnell Aircraft Company: MIL-M-28001 (SGML) and MIL-D-28000 Class 1 (IGES)  

SciTech Connect

The CALS Test Network (CTN) conducted a CTN Planned Test (CPT) of several CALS standards related to the transfer of technical publication data: MIL-STD-1840A (1840A), MIL-D-28000 Class I (28000), MIL-M-28001 (28001), and MIL-D-28003 (28003). The test was conducted with the McDonnell Aircraft Company (CMAIR) of St. Louis, Missouri in accordance with part one of CTN Test Plan CTN89-TM-06 and using material from an F-15E technical manual. One focus of the test was the transfer of a moderately large volume of technical publication data. There were 9 text files, 74 Initial Graphics Exchange Specification (IGES) files, and 74 Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) files in the exchange package. A noteworthy feature of the test was its early attempt to exchange CGM data. Part one of CTN89-TM-06 called for technical publication data to be output from MCAIR's Xyvision system on 9-track magnetic tape. The data was to be in accordance with the 28001 subset of the Standard Generalized Mark-up Language (SGML) and the 28001 Document Type Definition (DTD) that conformed to MIL-M-38784B, the general style and format requirements for technical manuals. Technical illustrations in the manual were to be done in accordance with 28000 Class I (IGES) and 28003 (CGM). Part two of the test called for the test tape to be read into another technical publication system where the text would be modified and the vector illustrations would all be converted to raster, in accordance with MIL-R-28002. This part of the test is not covered in this report.

Safety of floating drydocks in accordance with MIL-STD-1625A  

SciTech Connect

Recent accidents involving floating dry docks have raised concern about the rated lifting capacity and stability during drydocking operations. MIL-STD-1625A called for renewed attention to the problems of safety in drydocking naval ships in regard to the stability and buoyancy of floating dry docks. The U.S. NAVY, as a primary user of floating dry docks in this country, developed MIL-STD-1625A to certify drydocking facilities for a rated lifting capacity for drydocking naval ships. The intent of the MIL-STD is to provide guidance for certifying all new and existing drydocking facilities. This paper addresses the aspects of the MIL-STD that apply specifically to floating dry docks. Whereas, the MIL-STD addressed both the design and material condition of the dry dock and the associated machinery, this paper addresses only the lifting capacity and stability of the dock. Specifically, this paper will discuss safety during the operation of floating dry docks as it is affected by lifting capacity, stability and structural strength limits due to keel loading and buoyancy requirements. An example of the kind of data required by the MIL-STD-1625A will be presented.

Thermal history of nakhlites: A comparison between MIL 03346 and its terrestrial analogue Theo's flow  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

High resolution single-crystal X-ray diffraction (HR-SCXRD) and Mössbauer spectroscopy of the intracrystalline cation distribution have been performed on augitic core-crystals from a Miller Range nakhlite (sample MIL 03346,13) with approximate composition of En36Fs24Wo40. The Mössbauer data on the single-crystal yielded a very low Fe3+ content [Fe3+/Fetotal - 0.033(23) a.p.f.u.] that, together with the Electron microprobe analysis (EMPA) and the X-ray structural data allowed us to obtain the accurate cation site distribution and the Fe2+-Mg degree of order. This leads to a closure temperature (Tc) of 500 with a standard deviation of ±100 °C that would correspond to a slow cooling rate, which is in disagreement with petrologic evidence that indicates that this sample originates from a fast cooled (˜3-6 °C/h) lava flow. In order to clarify this discrepancy we undertook (i) a SC-XRD study of an augite (˜En49Fs9 Wo42) from a pyroxenite (TS7) of Theo's flow, a 120-m-thick lava flow regarded as a terrestrial analogue of MIL 03346; (ii) an annealing experiment at 600 °C on a crystal from exactly the same fragment of MIL 03346. SC-XRD data from TS7 augite yields a Tc = 600(20) °C, consistent with the cooling rate expected at 85 m below the surface. This Tc is higher, although similar within error, to the Tc = 500(100) °C obtained for MIL 03346; thus suggesting relatively slower cooling for MIL 03346 with respect to TS7. The annealing experiment on the MIL 03346 crystal clearly showed that the degree of order remained unchanged, further confirming that the actual Tc is close to 600 °C. This result appears inconsistent with the shallow depth of origin (˜<2 m) assumed for MIL 03346, further supporting the discrepancy between MIL 03346 textural and petrologic evidence of fast cooling and the abovementioned Tc results obtained for augite. Therefore, a tentative scenario is that, soon after eruption and initial quench and while still at relatively high-T (˜600 °C), MIL 03346 was blanketed with subsequent lava flows that slowed down the cooling rate and allowed the augite Fe2+-Mg exchange reaction to proceed.

MIL-L-87177 and CLT:X-10 Lubricants Improve Electrical Connector Fretting Corrosion Behavior  

SciTech Connect

We have conducted a fretting research project using MIL-L-87177 and CLT: X-10 lubricants on Nano-miniature connectors. When they were fretted without lubricant, individual connectors first exceeded our 0.5 ohm failure criteria from 2,341 to 45,238 fretting cycles. With additional fretting, their contact resistance increased to more than 100,000 ohms. Unmodified MIL-L-87177 lubricant delayed the onset of first failure to between 430,000 and over 20,000,000 fretting cycles. MIL-L-87177 modified by addition of Teflon powder delayed first failure to beyond 5 million fretting cycles. Best results were obtained when Teflon was used and also when both the straight and modified lubricants were poured into and then out of the connector. CLT: X-10 lubricant delayed the onset of first failure to beyond 55 million cycles in one test where a failure was actually observed and to beyond 20 million cycles in another that was terminated without failure. CLT: X-10 recovered an unlubricated connector driven deeply into failure, with six failed pins recovering immediately and four more recovering during an additional 420 thousand fretting cycles. MIL-L-87177 was not able to recover a connector under similar conditions.

MIL-STDS and PTTI: What's available and what needs to be done  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The systems developer who needs Precise Time and Time Interval (PTTI) capability has relatively little guidance in the form of military standards, particularly for systems using atomic clocks or other sources of very precise time and frequency. The existing standards, including MIL-STD-188-115, MIL-F-2991(EC), and DOD-STD-1399 are discussed. These documents were written several years ago and do not always reflect current practice or take advantage of more recent technology improvements. User needs have also changed over the years and some of those needs such as more detailed time codes are not being met. We will summarize what's available and what's good and bad about it. The second part will make suggestions about what should be done in the future to promote and facilitate good PTTI design practice. Topics will include clock performance parameters, environmental considerations, time codes, signal isolation, and time dissemination.

Liquid chromatographic separation in metal-organic framework MIL-101: a molecular simulation study.  

PubMed

A molecular simulation study is reported to investigate liquid chromatographic separation in metal-organic framework MIL-101. Two mixtures are considered: three amino acids (Arg, Phe, and Trp) in aqueous solution and three xylene isomers (p-, m-, and o-xylene) dissolved in hexane. For the first mixture, the elution order is found to be Arg > Phe > Trp. The hydrophilic Arg has the strongest interaction with the polar mobile phase (water) and the weakest interaction with the stationary phase (MIL-101), and thus transports at the fastest velocity. Furthermore, Arg forms the largest number of hydrogen bonds with water and possesses the largest hydrophilic solvent-accessible surface area. For the second mixture, the elution order is p-xylene > m-xylene > o-xylene, consistent with available experimental observation. With the largest polarity as compared to p- and m-xylenes, o-xylene interacts the most strongly with the stationary phase and exhibits the slowest transport velocity. For both mixtures, the underlying separation mechanism is elucidated from detailed energetic and structural analysis. It is revealed that the separation can be attributed to the cooperative solute-solvent and solute-framework interactions. This simulation study, for the first time, provides molecular insight into liquid chromatographic separation in a MOF and suggests that MIL-101 might be an interesting material for the separation of industrially important liquid mixtures.

Effects of the herbal formulation ColiMil on upper gastrointestinal transit in mice in vivo.  

PubMed

Clinical evidence suggests that the herbal formulation ColiMil (which contains Matricaria recutita flowers extract, Foeniculum vulgare fruit extract and Melissa officinalis aerial parts extract) is effective in the treatment of breastfed colic in infants. Therefore the effect of this phytotherapeutic formulation and its herbal constituents on upper gastrointestinal transit was investigated in mice in vivo. Oral administration of the herbal formulation (0.4-0.8 mL/mice) dose-dependently delayed upper gastrointestinal transit. Among the herbal components, Matricaria recutita extract (0.89 and 1.78 mg/mouse) and Melissa officinalis extract (6.46 and 12.92 mg/mouse), but not Foeniculum vulgare (8.21 and 16.42 mg/mouse), reduced motility significantly. These results suggest that ColiMil reduces upper gastrointestinal motility in mice, with a major contribution by Matricaria recutita and Melissa officinalis. These experimental data may be important to better understand the observation that the herbal formulation ColiMil improves colic in breastfed infants. PMID:17582592

Replacement of lys 622 in the ATP binding domain of P100gag-mil abolishes the in vitro autophosphorylation of the protein and the biological properties of the v-mil oncogene of MH2 virus.  

PubMed Central

Lysine 622 in the ATP-binding domain of P100gag-mil, the translation product of the v-mil oncogene of MH2, has been replaced with methionine using oligonucleotide site-directed mutagenesis. This substitution results in the inactivation of the serine/threonine-specific autophosphorylation of P100gag-mil in vitro, indicating that this activity is an intrinsic property of the viral protein. This substitution also suppresses two of the biological properties of MH2 which have previously been shown to be dependant upon the expression of v-mil, namely, the production of chicken myelomonocytic growth factor (cMGF) by v-myc-transformed chicken macrophages and the sustained proliferation of chicken neuroretina cells. These data strongly suggest that the biological properties of v-mil are mediated by the phosphorylation at serine/threonine residues of key cellular substrates. In contrast to the in vitro situation, both the mutant and wild-type proteins appear to be phosphorylated at the same sites and to the same extent in either transformed fibroblasts or macrophages. This, together with the fact that the sites phosphorylated in vivo and in vitro are essentially different indicate that most of the phosphate associated with P100gag-mil in transformed cells does not result from an obligate autophosphorylation event but from the phosphorylation by as yet uncharacterized cellular kinase(s).

Military Handbook 17, 'Polymer Matrix Composites', establishes guidelines for the use of composite material test methods. A discussion is presented of the rationale behind the test method guidelines, and the consequences of MIL-HDBK-17's contents on the use and standardization of test methods. Test method requirements feature rigorous review of precision and bias, interlaboratory testing, and publication in an open-literature document. The criteria also permit inclusion of 'common practice' test methods in the handbook as long as the test has begun the process towards standardization, thereby allowing an independent determination of precision and bias.

In this study, three trace flue gas contaminants (H2O, NO, SO2) were each added to a 10 vol% CO2/N2 feed flow and found to have a minimal impact on the adsorption capacity of CO2. In dynamic CO2 regeneration experiments, complete regeneration occurred in 10?min at 328 K for temperature swing adsorption-N2-stripping under a 50?cm(3)/min N2 flow and at 348 K for vacuum-temperature swing adsorption at 20?KPa. Almost 99% of the pre-regeneration adsorption capacity was preserved after 5 cycles of adsorption/desorption under a gas flow of 10 vol% CO2, 100?ppm SO2, 100?ppm NO, and 10% RH, respectively. Strong resistance to flue gas contaminants, mild recovery conditions, and excellent recycling efficiency make MIL-101(Cr) an attractive adsorbent support for CO2 capture. PMID:24107974

Aldehyde-alcohol reactions catalyzed under mild conditions by chromium(III) terephthalate metal organic framework (MIL-101) and phosphotungstic acid composites.  

PubMed

Porous materials based on chromium(III) terephthalate metal organic frameworks (MIL-101) and their composites with phosphotungstic acid (PTA) were studied as heterogeneous acid catalysts in aldehyde-alcohol reactions exemplified by acetaldehyde-phenol (A-P) condensation and dimethylacetal formation from benzaldehyde and methanol (B-M reaction). The MIL-101 was synthesized solvothermically in water, and the MIL101/PTA composite materials were obtained by either impregnation of the already prepared MIL-101 porous matrix with phosphotungstic acid solution or by solvothermic treatment of aqueous mixtures of Cr(NO(3))(3), and terephthalic and phosphotungstic acids. The MIL101/PTA materials appeared to be effective catalysts for both A-P and B-M reactions occurring at room temperature, with half-lives ranging from 0.5 h (A-P) to 1.5-2 h (B-M) and turnover numbers over 600 for A-P and over 2900 for the B-M reaction, respectively. A synergistic effect of the strong acidic moieties (PTA) addition to mildly acidic Brønsted and Lewis acid cites of the MIL-101 was observed with the MIL101/PTA composites. The ability of the PTA and MIL101/PTA materials to strongly absorb and condense acetaldehyde vapors was discovered, with the MIL101/PTA absorbing over 10-fold its dry weight of acetaldehyde condensate at room temperature. The acetaldehyde was converted rapidly to crotonaldehyde and higher-molecular-weight compounds while in contact with MIL-101 and MIL101/PTA materials. The stability of the MIL-101 and MIL101/PTA catalysts was assessed within four cycles of the 1-day alcohol-aldehyde reactions in terms of the overall catalyst recovery, PTA or Cr content, and reaction rate constants in each cycle. The loss of the catalyst over 4 cycles was approximately 10 wt % for all tested catalysts due to the incomplete recovery and minute dissolution of the components. The reaction rates in all cycles remained unchanged and the catalyst losses stopped after the third cycle. The developed MIL101/PTA composites appear to be feasible for industrial catalytic applications. PMID:22091761

MOFs as multifunctional catalysts: one-pot synthesis of menthol from citronellal over a bifunctional MIL-101 catalyst.

A bifunctional MOF catalyst containing coordinatively unsaturated Cr(3+) sites and palladium nanoparticles (Pd@MIL-101) has been used for the cyclization of citronellal to isopulegol and for the one-pot tandem isomerization/hydrogenation of citronellal to menthol. The MOF was found to be stable under the reaction conditions used, and the results obtained indicate that the performance of this bifunctional solid catalyst is comparable with other state-of-the-art materials for the tandem reaction: Full citronellal conversion was attained over Pd@MIL-101 in 18 h, with 86% selectivity to menthols and a diastereoselectivity of 81% to the desired (-)-menthol, while up to 30 h were necessary for attaining similar values over Ir/H-beta under analogous reaction conditions.

SciTech Connect

The Small Explorer Data System (SEDS) was launched in July of 1992 as part of the Solar Anomalous Magnetospheric Particle Explorer (SAMPEX) mission. The SEDS utilizes NASA's first MIL-STD-1773 Fiber Optic Multiplexed Data Bus (or 1773 bus) to communicate with other spacecraft subsystems in the space environment. The 1773 bus is the fiber optic version of the MIL-STD-1553 Data Bus, a electronic wire bus used in many avionics applications. The authors present proton test and space flight single event effect data for NASA's first fiber optic data bus. Bit error rate predictions based on a new proton direct ionization model agree well with flight data for proton belt and solar flare effects.

The new and computationally efficient MIL-SOM algorithm: potential benefits for visualization and analysis of a large-scale high-dimensional clinically acquired geographic data.  

PubMed

The objective of this paper is to introduce an efficient algorithm, namely, the mathematically improved learning-self organizing map (MIL-SOM) algorithm, which speeds up the self-organizing map (SOM) training process. In the proposed MIL-SOM algorithm, the weights of Kohonen's SOM are based on the proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller. Thus, in a typical SOM learning setting, this improvement translates to faster convergence. The basic idea is primarily motivated by the urgent need to develop algorithms with the competence to converge faster and more efficiently than conventional techniques. The MIL-SOM algorithm is tested on four training geographic datasets representing biomedical and disease informatics application domains. Experimental results show that the MIL-SOM algorithm provides a competitive, better updating procedure and performance, good robustness, and it runs faster than Kohonen's SOM. PMID:22481977

Mapping by in vitro constructs of the P100gag-mil region, accounting for induction of chicken neuroretina cell proliferation.  

PubMed Central

The v-mil oncogene of the avian retrovirus MH2 is expressed as a fusion protein with viral gag determinants in infected cells. This P100gag-mil protein accounts for the proliferation of chicken embryo neuroretina cells (CNR) induced by MH2 in vitro. We constructed a series of mutants by in-frame deletions in different parts of the gag and mil domains and tested their ability to induce CNR growth. We show that gag sequences, as well as 200-base-pair 5' mil sequences, were not required to induce such a proliferation. However, gag sequences seem to contribute to a full proliferation of growing CNR. In contrast, deletions in the kinase domain abolish this induction. In particular, by deleting only 9 nucleotides localized around the unique SphI site of v-mil, we produced a totally inactive mutant (BalSp). This mutant directs the synthesis of a v-mil protein lacking the dipeptide Tyr-Leu, which is conserved in almost all the members of the large protein kinase family, and a histidine residue highly conserved in Ser-Thr protein kinase members.

Alteration Assemblages in Martian Meteorite MIL 03346: Terrestrial, Pre-terrestrial, and Inferences for Martian Surface Fluids  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

MIL 03346 was discovered in the Miller Range region of Antarctica in 2003, and subsequently classified as a member of the nakhlite group of Martian meteorites based on geochemical and petrological evidence. In common with other nakhlites, MIL 03346 contains aqueous-alteration assemblages. Using SEM-based X-ray imaging techniques, along with LA-ICP-MS trace element data, we compared the extent and composition of alteration between four thin sections from different regions of MIL 03346. The aim of our study is twofold: 1) to determine how pervasive the effects of terrestrial weathering are within the meteorite, and 2) to constrain the fluid composition(s) responsible for the pre-terrestrial alteration assemblages based upon our major and trace element datasets for these phases, in conjunction with previously published data. Our initial results indicate that MIL 03346 thin sections 173 and 174 contain higher modal abundances of alteration material compared to thin sections 126 and 128, with 128 containing the least alteration. Thin sections 173 and 174 have an “Antarctic varnish” layer on multiple edges, indicating they were cut from the outer regions of the stone. Varnish covers only one edge of thin section 126 and is not found on section 128, suggesting the latter was cut from an entirely internal part of the meteorite. It therefore appears that areas close to the surface of MIL 03346 were significantly affected by terrestrial weathering compared to the interior regions. A number of olivine grains contain incipient alteration, with Mg, Ca, Fe and Mn depletion, and Al, Si, P, S and K enrichment. This alteration is most intense in olivine grains towards the edge of thin sections 173 and 174, and is not present in thin section 128, indicating it may be purely of terrestrial origin. Alteration assemblages within olivine and pyroxene cracks mostly consist of Fe- and Si-rich clay materials, commonly containing 2.5-3.5 wt % MgO and < 1 wt % Al2O3, K2O, Na2O, SO3 and Cl. Cross-cutting relationships with fusion crust have been used to suggest a pre-terrestrial origin for the nakhlite clay material. The fact that these materials are limited to cracks within olivine and pyroxene grains suggests pre-terrestrial alteration was localised and in-situ. This interpretation is further supported by the presence of gypsum only in association with clinopyroxene cracks, as Ca cannot be extracted from olivine. Our dataset, along with those of previous studies, therefore indicates the Martian fluid which flowed through MIL 03346 had a composition largely controlled by basaltic weathering. Fluid heterogeneity was caused by a strong dependency upon the surrounding microenvironment. In-situ data from the Mars Exploration Rovers, mineral identifications from orbit, and element measurements by the Mars Odyssey Gamma-Ray Spectrometer are consistent with Martian aqueous alteration involving solutions containing SO3 and Cl.

Isomorphous substitution in a flexible metal-organic framework: mixed-metal, mixed-valent MIL-53 type materials.  

PubMed

Mixed-metal iron-vanadium analogues of the 1,4-benzenedicarboxylate (BDC) metal-organic framework MIL-53 have been synthesized solvothermally in N,N'-dimethylformamide (DMF) from metal chlorides using initial Fe:V ratios of 2:1 and 1:1. At 200 °C and short reaction time (1 h), materials (Fe,V)(II/III)BDC(DMF(1-x)F(x)) crystallize directly, whereas the use of longer reaction times (3 days) at 170 °C yields phases of composition [(Fe,V)(III)0.5(Fe,V)0.5(II)(BDC)(OH,F)](0.5-)·0.5DMA(+) (DMA = dimethylammonium). The identity of the materials is confirmed using high-resolution powder X-ray diffraction, with refined unit cell parameters compared to known pure iron analogues of the same phases. The oxidation states of iron and vanadium in all samples are verified using X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) spectroscopy at the metal K-edges. This shows that in the two sets of materials each of the vanadium and the iron centers are present in both +2 and +3 oxidation states. The local environment and oxidation state of iron is confirmed by (57)Fe Mössbauer spectrometry. Infrared and Raman spectroscopies as a function of temperature allowed the conditions for removal of extra-framework species to be identified, and the evolution of ?2-hydroxyls to be monitored. Thus calcination of the mixed-valent, mixed-metal phases [(Fe,V)(III)0.5(Fe,V)0.5(II)(BDC)(OH,F)](0.5-)·0.5DMA(+) yields single-phase MIL-53-type materials, (Fe,V)(III)(BDC)(OH,F). The iron-rich, mixed-metal MIL-53 shows structural flexibility that is distinct from either the pure Fe material or the pure V material, with a thermally induced pore opening upon heating that is reversible upon cooling. In contrast, the material with a Fe:V content of 1:1 shows an irreversible expansion upon heating, akin to the pure vanadium analogue, suggesting the presence of some domains of vanadium-rich regions that can be permanently oxidized to V(IV).

PubMed

The potential of the porous crystalline titanium dicarboxylate MIL-125(Ti) in powder form was studied for the separation in liquid phase of xylene isomers and ethylbenzene (MIL stands for Materials from Institut Lavoisier). We report here a detailed experimental study consisting of binary and multi-component adsorption equilibrium of xylene isomers in MIL-125(Ti) powder at low (?0.8 M) and bulk (?0.8 M) concentrations. A series of multi-component breakthrough experiments was first performed using n-heptane as the eluent at 313 K, and the obtained selectivities were compared, followed by binary breakthrough experiments to determine the adsorption isotherms at 313 K, using n-heptane as the eluent. MIL-125(Ti) is a para-selective material suitable at low concentrations to separate p-xylene from the other xylene isomers. Pulse experiments indicate a separation factor of 1.3 for p-xylene over o-xylene and m-xylene, while breakthrough experiments using a diluted ternary mixture lead to selectivity values of 1.5 and 1.6 for p-xylene over m-xylene and o-xylene, respectively. Introduction of ethylbenzene in the mixture results however in a decrease of the selectivity. PMID:22260425

Facile magnetization of metal-organic framework MIL-101 for magnetic solid-phase extraction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in environmental water samples.  

PubMed

The unusual properties such as high surface area, good thermal stability, uniform structured nanoscale cavities and the availability of in-pore functionality and outer-surface modification make metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) attractive for diverse analytical applications. However, integration of MOFs with magnets for magnetic solid-phase extraction for analytical application has not been attempted so far. Here we show a facile magnetization of MOF MIL-101(Cr) for rapid magnetic solid-phase extraction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from environmental water samples. MIL-101 is attractive as a sorbent for solid-phase extraction of pollutants in aqueous solution due to its high surface area, large pores, accessible coordinative unsaturated sites, and excellent chemical and solvent stability. In situ magnetization of MIL-101 microcrystals as well as magnetic solid-phase extraction of PAHs was achieved simultaneously by simply mixing MIL-101 and silica-coated Fe(3)O(4) microparticles in a sample solution under sonication. Such MOF-based magnetic solid-phase extraction in combination with high-performance liquid chromatography gave the detection limits of 2.8-27.2 ng L(-1) and quantitation limits of 6.3-87.7 ng L(-1) for the PAHs. The relative standard deviations for intra- and inter-day analyses were in the range of 3.1-8.7% and 6.1-8.5%, respectively. The results showed that hydrophobic and ?-? interactions between the PAHs and the framework terephthalic acid molecules, and the ?-complexation between PAHs and the Lewis acid sites in the pores of MIL-101 play a significant role in the adsorption of PAHs.

Martian fluid and Martian weathering signatures identified in Nakhla, NWA 998 and MIL 03346 by halogen and noble gas analysis  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We report argon (Ar) noble gas, Ar-Ar ages and halogen abundances (Cl, Br, I) of Martian nakhlites Nakhla, NWA 998 and MIL 03346 to determine the presence of Martian hydrous fluids and weathering products. Neutron-irradiated samples were either crushed and step-heated (Nakhla only), or simply step-heated using a laser or furnace, and analysed for noble gases using an extension of the 40Ar-39Ar technique to determine halogen abundances. The data obtained provide the first isotopic evidence for a trapped fluid that is Cl-rich, has a strong correlation with 40ArXS (40ArXS = 40Armeasured - 40Arradiogenic) and displays 40ArXS/36Ar of ˜1000 - consistent with the Martian atmosphere. This component was released predominantly in the low temperature and crush experiments, which may suggest a fluid inclusion host. For the halogens, we observe similar Br/Cl and I/Cl ratios between the nakhlites and terrestrial reservoirs, which is surprising given the absence of crustal recycling, organic matter and frequent fluid activity on Mars. In particular, Br/Cl ratios in our Nakhla samples (especially olivine) are consistent with previously analysed Martian weathering products, and both low temperature and crush analyses show a similar trend to the evaporation of seawater. This may indicate that surface brines play an important role on Mars and on halogen assemblages within Martian meteorites and rocks. Elevated I/Cl ratios in the low temperature NWA 998 and MIL 03346 releases may relate to in situ terrestrial contamination, though we are unable to distinguish between low temperature terrestrial or Martian components. Whilst estimates of the amount of water present based on the 36Ar concentrations are too high to be explained by a fluid component alone, they are consistent with a mixed-phase inclusion (gas and fluid) or with shock-implanted Martian atmospheric argon. The observed fluid is dilute (low salinity, but high Br/Cl and I/Cl ratios), contains a Martian atmospheric component, and may represent a mixture of a shallow fluid with one derived from fluid circulation within the nakhlite cumulate pile - with heat for fluid circulation supplied by either the igneous intrusion or by an impact event.

Comparisons of the four Miller Range nakhlites, MIL 03346, 090030, 090032 and 090136: Textural and compositional observations of primary and secondary mineral assemblages  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Petrological and geochemical analyses of Miller Range (MIL) 03346 indicate that this meteorite originated from the same augitic cumulate layer(s) as the nakhlite Martian meteorites, but underwent rapid cooling prior to complete crystallization. As with the other nakhlites, MIL 03346 contains a secondary alteration assemblage, in this case consisting of iddingsite-like alteration veins in olivine phenocrysts, Fe-oxide alteration veins associated with the mesostasis, and Ca- and K,Fe-sulfate veins. We compared the textural and mineralogical compositions of MIL 090030, 090032, and 090136 with MIL 03346, focusing on the composition and Raman spectra of the alteration assemblages. These observations indicate that the meteorites are paired, and that the preterrestrial olivine-bound alteration assemblages were produced by weakly acidic brine. Although these alteration assemblages resemble similar assemblages in Nakhla, the absence of siderite and halite in the Miller Range nakhlites indicates that the parental alteration brine was comparatively HCO3- depleted, and less concentrated, than that which altered Nakhla. This indicates that the Miller Range nakhlite alteration brine experienced a separate evolutionary pathway to that which altered Nakhla, and therefore represents a separate branch of the Lafayette-Nakhla evaporation sequence. Thin-sections cut from the internal portions of these meteorites (away from any fusion crust or terrestrially exposed edge), contain little Ca-sulfate (identified as gypsum), and no jarosite, whereas thin-sections with terrestrially exposed edges have much higher sulfate abundances. These observations suggest that at least the majority of sulfate within the Miller Range nakhlites is terrestrially derived.

Programming MOFs for water sorption: amino-functionalized MIL-125 and UiO-66 for heat transformation and heat storage applications.  

PubMed

Sorption-based heat transformation and storage appliances are very promising for utilizing solar heat and waste heat in cooling or heating applications. The economic and ecological efficiency of sorption-based heat transformation depends on the availability of suitable hydrophilic and hydrothermally stable sorption materials. We investigated the feasibility of using the metal-organic frameworks UiO-66(Zr), UiO-67(Zr), H2N-UiO-66(Zr) and H2N-MIL-125(Ti) as sorption materials in heat transformations by means of volumetric water adsorption measurements, determination of the heat of adsorption and a 40-cycle ad/desorption stress test. The amino-modified compounds H2N-UiO-66 and H2N-MIL-125 feature high heat of adsorption (89.5 and 56.0 kJ mol(-1), respectively) and a very promising H2O adsorption isotherm due to their enhanced hydrophilicity. For H2N-MIL-125 the very steep rise of the H2O adsorption isotherm in the 0.1 < p/p0 < 0.2 region is especially beneficial for the intended heat pump application. PMID:23864023

N/S-heterocyclic contaminant removal from fuels by the mesoporous metal-organic framework MIL-100: the role of the metal ion.  

PubMed

The influence of the metal ion in the mesoporous metal trimesate MIL-100(Al(3+), Cr(3+), Fe(3+), V(3+)) on the adsorptive removal of N/S-heterocyclic molecules from fuels has been investigated by combining isotherms for adsorption from a model fuel solution with microcalorimetric and IR spectroscopic characterizations. The results show a clear influence of the different metals (Al, Fe, Cr, V) on the affinity for the heterocyclic compounds, on the integral adsorption enthalpies, and on the uptake capacities. Among several factors, the availability of coordinatively unsaturated sites and the presence of basic sites next to the coordinative vacancies are important factors contributing to the observed affinity differences for N-heterocyclic compounds. These trends were deduced from IR spectroscopic observation of adsorbed indole molecules, which can be chemisorbed coordinatively or by formation of hydrogen bonded species. On the basis of our results we are able to propose an optimized adsorbent for the deep and selective removal of nitrogen contaminants out of fuel feeds, namely MIL-100(V). PMID:23646935

Investigation of structure and dynamics of the hydrated metal-organic framework MIL-53(Cr) using first-principles molecular dynamics.  

PubMed

The hydration behavior of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) is of interest both from a practical and from a fundamental point of view: it is linked, on the one hand, to the hydrothermal stability (or instability) of the nanoporous material, which might limit its use in technological applications. On the other hand, it sheds light on the behavior of water in a strongly confined environment. Here, we use first-principles molecular dynamics (MD) to investigate two hydrated phases of the flexible MOF MIL-53(Cr), which adopts a narrow- or a large-pore form, depending on the water loading. Structure and dynamics of the two phases are thoroughly analyzed and compared, with a focus on the hydroxyl group of MIL-53(Cr) and the water molecules in the nanopores. Furthermore, the behavior of the confined water is compared to that of bulk water. Whereas in the narrow-pore form, water is adsorbed at specific crystalline sites, it shows a more disordered, bulk-like structure in the large-pore form. However, reorientation dynamics of water molecules in the latter is considerably slowed down with respect to bulk water, which highlights the confinement effect of the nanoporous framework.

An open-framework rare-earth acetylenedicarboxylate: MIL-95, Eu(III)2(H2O)2(CO3)2.{O2C-C2-CO2}.{H2O}x.  

PubMed

The first three-dimensional rare-earth acetylenedicarboxylate solid, MIL-95 (MIL = Material Institut Lavoisier), has been isolated and its structure solved from single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. Its two-dimensional inorganic subnetwork, built up from chains of edge-sharing nine-coordinated europium-capped square antiprisms and carbonate moieties, is pillared by the acetylenedicarboxylate groups. This leads to an open framework where small pores are filled with water molecules interacting with terminal water bound to the metal centers. TGA and X-ray thermodiffractometry show that dehydration leads to an irreversible pore contraction. The whole structure collapses above 230 degrees C. Crystal data for MIL-95: orthorhombic space group Pba2 (No. 32), with a = 7.6762(2) A, b = 17.8448(4) A, and c = 4.8105(2) A. PMID:15679398

Experimental screening of porous materials for high pressure gas adsorption and evaluation in gas separations: application to MOFs (MIL-100 and CAU-10).  

PubMed

A high-throughput gas adsorption apparatus is presented for the evaluation of adsorbents of interest in gas storage and separation applications. This instrument is capable of measuring complete adsorption isotherms up to 40 bar on six samples in parallel using as little as 60 mg of material. Multiple adsorption cycles can be carried out and four gases can be used sequentially, giving as many as 24 adsorption isotherms in 24 h. The apparatus has been used to investigate the effect of metal center (MIL-100) and functional groups (CAU-10) on the adsorption of N(2), CO(2), and light hydrocarbons on MOFs. This demonstrates how it can serve to evaluate sample quality and adsorption reversibility, to determine optimum activation conditions and to estimate separation properties. As such it is a useful tool for the screening of novel adsorbents for different applications in gas separation, providing significant time savings in identifying potentially interesting materials.

Bond-strength studies for 1-mil-diameter gold wires bonded to hybrid microcircuit substrates  

SciTech Connect

Detailed studies of the failure probability for gold wires bonded to multiplexer substrates under severe acceleration in the W79 artillery shell environments were made. The studies included: the calculated resultant pull forces exerted on the bond joints due to the W79 acceleration environments; the suitability of the loop-hook pull tests and the use of the normal Gaussian distribution theory for statistical description of bond strengths; and the probability of failure for gold wires bonded to multiplexer substrates under artillery shell accelerations using fixed angle pull tests and a Weilbull distribution theory for the statistical description. Preliminary statistical analyses of the bond strength data obtained from the conventional loop-hook pull tests for a multiplexer substrate HMC, have shown that the ball bond is strong enough to withstand the 0.17 gram design limit load due to the W79 gun barrel environments with a very low probability of failure. For the wedge bond, however, the results of a statistical analysis for the bond strength agree with experience which shows that the wedge bonds are generally much weaker than ball bonds in multiplexer substrates, and the probability of failure may be high enough to cause a problem. The degradation of the wedge bond strength due to post-assembly testing is significant as indicated by the large increase in probability of failure for the post-assembly-tested wedge bonds. To illustrate this, consider a worst-case example which assumes all wires bonded to the hybrid microcircuit substrates have the same geometry and loading conditions. Assuming the W79 JTA has approximately 2760 of these bonded wires, the probabilities of failure are 0.0179% for virgin wedge bonds and 2.1% for post-assembly-tested wedge bonds.

Revision of FED-STD-209D and MIL-STD-1246B and development of IES (Institute of Environmental Sciences) contamination control recommended practices in the United States of America  

SciTech Connect

In the United States of America, numerous organizations are writing standards and recommend practices for contamination control and cleanroom applications. The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), the Institute of Environmental Sciences (IES), and various US Government agencies are among the organizations with a vested interest in publishing standards and recommended practices on these subjects. In the early years of contamination control and cleanroom technology, significant work was done in the US on standards and recommended practices. Proprietary standards were established by companies and other documents were produced by Federal agencies and technical organizations. In 1982, the IES began to focus on recommended practices, and the US General Services Administration (GSA) commissioned the IES to review and rewrite US Federal Standard 209 (FED-STD-209). The ASTM continues to review and update their standards on cleanroom applications on a periodic basis. Now, in 1990, US military organizations are beginning to review their cleanroom documents as well. This paper will discuss the preparation of IES Recommended Practices and Standards for contamination control and cleanroom applications. It will describe the current status of four IES Recommended Practices and two US Government documents.

Metal-organic framework catalysis: MIL-101 crystallites have been synthesized in different sizes and infiltrated with the Pd precursor complex [Pd(C5 H5 )(C3 H5 )]. Reduction of the Pd precursor complex gave rise to Pd nanoparticles inside the cavities of MIL-101 crystallites. Catalytic studies showed a clear dependence of the catalytic activity on the MIL-101 crystallite size. Furthermore, Pd-nanoparticle migration from MIL-101 crystallite to crystallite was observed under mild conditions. PMID:24092537

Millepachine, a novel chalcone, induces G2/M arrest by inhibiting CDK1 activity and causing apoptosis via ROS-mitochondrial apoptotic pathway in human hepatocarcinoma cells in vitro and in vivo.  

PubMed

In this study, we reported millepachine (MIL), a novel chalcone compound for the first time isolated from Millettia pachycarpa Benth (Leguminosae), induced cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in human hepatocarcinoma cells in vitro and in vivo. In in vitro screening experiments, MIL showed strong antiproliferation activity in several human cancer cell lines, especially in HepG2 cells with an IC50 of 1.51 µM. Therefore, we chose HepG2 and SK-HEP-1 cells to study MIL's antitumor mechanism. Flow cytometry showed that MIL induced a G2/M arrest and apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner. Western blot demonstrated that MIL-induced G2/M arrest was correlated with the inhibition of cyclin-dependent kinase 1 activity, including a remarkable decrease in cell division cycle (cdc) 2 synthesis, the accumulation of phosphorylated-Thr14 and decrease of phosphorylation at Thr161 of cdc2. This effect was associated with the downregulation of cdc25C and upmodulation of checkpoint kinase 2 in response to DNA damage. MIL also activated caspase 9 and caspase 3, and significantly increased the ratio of Bax/Bcl-2 and stimulated the release of cytochrome c into cytosol, suggesting MIL induced apoptosis via mitochondrial apoptotic pathway. Associated with those effects, MIL also induced the generation of reactive oxygen species. In HepG2 tumor-bearing mice models, MIL remarkably and dose dependently inhibited tumor growth. Treatment of mice with MIL (20mg/kg intravenous [i.v.]) caused more than 65% tumor inhibition without cardiac damage compared with 47.57% tumor reduction by 5mg/kg i.v. doxorubicin with significant cardiac damage. These effects suggested that MIL and its easily modified structural derivative might be a potential lead compound for antitumor drug. PMID:23471882

Somatic and Reproductive Cell Development in Rice Anther Is Regulated by a Putative Glutaredoxin[C][W  

PubMed Central

The switch from mitosis to meiosis is one of the most pivotal events in eukaryotes undergoing sexual reproduction. However, the mechanisms orchestrating meiosis initiation remain elusive, particularly in plants. Flowering plants are heterosporous, with male and female spore genesis adopting different developmental courses. We show here that plant pollen mother cells contain a specific meiosis initiation machinery through characterization of a rice (Oryza sativa) gene, MICROSPORELESS1 (MIL1). The mil1 mutant does not produce microspores in anthers but has the normal female fertility. Detailed molecular and cytological investigations demonstrate that mil1 anthers are defective in the meiotic entry of sporogenous cell progenies and in the differentiation of surrounding somatic cell layers, resulting in locules filled with somatic cells instead of microspores. Furthermore, analysis of mil1 msp1 double mutants reveals that due to the absence of MIL1, the cells in their anther locule center do not activate meiotic cell cycle either, generating a similar anther phenotype to mil1. MIL1 encodes a plant-specific CC-type glutaredoxin, which could interact with TGA transcription factors. These results suggest meiotic entry in microsporocytes is directed by an anther-specific mechanism, which requires MIL1 activity, and redox regulation might play important roles in this process.

Isolation of methanotrophic bacteria from a london landfill: a preliminary study using molecular and stable isotopic techniques.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Methane emissions from landfills are an important source of European greenhouse emissions, and could be reduced by a biological management program that used methanotrophs in landfill cover soils. Topsoil samples taken from a London Landfill were incubated on Nitrate Mineral Salts medium in the presence of methane. The resulting colonies were probed for methanotrophic DNA using PCR amplification. DNA from methanotroph positive colonies was cloned and sequenced for identification. Isolates belonging to the genera Methylocaldum, Methylomonas and Methylosinus were detected. Phylogenetic analysis suggests the presence of possible new species. In addition dried samples of the isolates were analysed for their stable carbon isotope (? 13C) composition. The results were ? 13C values of -27 per mil and -25 per mil for Methylomonas isolates, -35 per mil and -44 per mil for Methylosinus isolates, -58 per mil and -60 per mil for some of the Methylocaldum isolates and -35 per mil and -45 per mil for the others. This isotopic variation is reflected in a phylogenetic tree of the isolates. The differences shown in the ? 13C analysis could be due to differing biochemical properties, and if the technique is further developed, it may be used for rapid identification of bacteria useful in landfill management for reducing methane emissions. The results suggest that useful reductions in methane emissions could be achieved by a careful design of landfill cover to culture methanotrophs.

Somatic and reproductive cell development in rice anther is regulated by a putative glutaredoxin.  

PubMed

The switch from mitosis to meiosis is one of the most pivotal events in eukaryotes undergoing sexual reproduction. However, the mechanisms orchestrating meiosis initiation remain elusive, particularly in plants. Flowering plants are heterosporous, with male and female spore genesis adopting different developmental courses. We show here that plant pollen mother cells contain a specific meiosis initiation machinery through characterization of a rice (Oryza sativa) gene, MICROSPORELESS1 (MIL1). The mil1 mutant does not produce microspores in anthers but has the normal female fertility. Detailed molecular and cytological investigations demonstrate that mil1 anthers are defective in the meiotic entry of sporogenous cell progenies and in the differentiation of surrounding somatic cell layers, resulting in locules filled with somatic cells instead of microspores. Furthermore, analysis of mil1 msp1 double mutants reveals that due to the absence of MIL1, the cells in their anther locule center do not activate meiotic cell cycle either, generating a similar anther phenotype to mil1. MIL1 encodes a plant-specific CC-type glutaredoxin, which could interact with TGA transcription factors. These results suggest meiotic entry in microsporocytes is directed by an anther-specific mechanism, which requires MIL1 activity, and redox regulation might play important roles in this process.

Dexterity testing of chemical-defense gloves. Technical report  

SciTech Connect

Chemical-defense gloves (12.5-mil Epichlorohydron/Butyl, 14-mil Epichlorohydron/Butyl, and 7-mil Butyl with Nomex overgloves) were subjected to four dexterity tests (O'Connor Finger Dexterity Test, Pennsylvania Bi-Manual Worksample-Assembly, Minnesota Rate of Manipulation Turning, and the Crawford Small Test). Results indicated that subjects performances were most impaired by the 7-mil Butyl with Nomex overglove. Though differences between the other three gloved conditions were not always statistically significant, subjects performed silghtly better while wearing the Epichlorohydron/Butyl gloves, no matter which thickness, than they did while wearing the 15-mil butyl gloves. High negative correlation between anthropometry and gloved tests scores of subjects suggested that poor glove fit may also have affected subjects performances.

Genome-wide identification and profiling of microRNA-like RNAs from Metarhizium anisopliae during development.  

PubMed

Metarhizium anisopliae is one of the most common species of entopathogenic fungi. It has economic and social benefits in many countries where used in agriculture as an important biological control agent of insect pests. M. anisopliae can exist as multiple cell types, which suggests that this fungus has a complex way of gene regulation. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous small noncoding RNAs. They play a crucial role in the regulation of gene expression and cell function in plants, animals, and in fungi where they were termed miRNA-like RNAs (milRNAs). In this study, we aimed to identify potential milRNAs in M. anisopliae that may regulate the processes of mycelium growth and conidiogenesis (CO). Two small RNA (sRNA) libraries were constructed and submitted to Solexa sequencing. Fifteen milRNAs were identified using deep-sequencing and computational analysis; most of these milRNAs originated from single genes. Database searches revealed that these novel milRNAs had no homologues in other organisms and were, therefore, M. anisopliae-specific. Many of the milRNAs had differential expression profiles for either mycelium growth or CO. The expression of the selected milRNAs was validated by quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. Seventy-eight potential target mRNAs for 14 of the milRNAs were identified successfully by computational analysis. These milRNAs may play an important role in the regulation of mycelial growth and conidiation in M. anisopliae. To our knowledge, this study is the first report of milRNA profiles of organisms in the order Hypocreales. This information could be used to study the regulation of genes and their networks in M. anisopliae. PMID:23153806

Modeling the effect of structural changes during dynamic separation processes on MOFs.  

PubMed

A model able to describe the effect of structural changes in the adsorbent or adsorbed phase during the dynamic (breakthrough) separation of mixtures on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) is presented. The methodology is exemplified for a few pertinent case studies: the separation of xylene isomers and ethylbenzene on the flexible MOF MIL-53 and the rigid MOF MIL-47. At low pressures, no preferential adsorption of any component occurs on both MOFs. Contrarily, at higher pressures separation of ethylbenzene (EB) from o-xylene (oX) occurs on MIL-53 as a result of the breathing phenomenon within the MIL-53 structure. The increase in selectivity, starting from the gate-opening pressure, could be modeled by using a pressure-dependent saturation capacity for the most strongly adsorbed component oX. In the separation of m-xylene (mX) from p-xylene (pX) on the rigid MOF MIL-47, separation at higher pressures is a result of preferential stacking of pX. Here, the selectivity increases once the adsorption of pX switches from a single to a double file adsorption. By implementing a loading dependent adsorption constant for pX, the different unconventional breakthrough profiles and the observed selectivity profile on MIL-47 can be simulated. A similar methodology was used for the separation of EB from pX on MIL-47, where the separation is a result from steric constraints imposed onto the adsorption of EB. PMID:21923100

Identification of microRNA-Like RNAs in the Filamentous Fungus Trichoderma reesei by Solexa Sequencing.  

PubMed

microRNAs (miRNAs) are non-coding small RNAs (sRNAs) capable of negatively regulating gene expression. Recently, microRNA-like small RNAs (milRNAs) were discovered in several filamentous fungi but not yet in Trichoderma reesei, an industrial filamentous fungus that can secrete abundant hydrolases. To explore the presence of milRNA in T. reesei and evaluate their expression under induction of cellulose, two T. reesei sRNA libraries of cellulose induction (IN) and non-induction (CON) were generated and sequenced using Solexa sequencing technology. A total of 726 and 631 sRNAs were obtained from the IN and CON samples, respectively. Global expression analysis showed an extensively differential expression of sRNAs in T. reesei under the two conditions. Thirteen predicted milRNAs were identified in T. reesei based on the short hairpin structure analysis. The milRNA profiles obtained in deep sequencing were further validated by RT-qPCR assay. Computational analysis predicted a number of potential targets relating to many processes including regulation of enzyme expression. The presence and differential expression of T. reesei milRNAs imply that milRNA might play a role in T. reesei growth and cellulase induction. This work lays foundation for further functional study of fungal milRNAs and their industrial application. PMID:24098464

Metal-organic frameworks as hosts for photochromic guest molecules.  

PubMed

Several metal-organic framework compounds (MOF-5, MIL-68(Ga), MIL-68(In), MIL-53(Al)) were loaded with azobenzene (AZB), as confirmed by XRPD measurements and elemental analysis. By IR spectroscopy, it was shown that the light-induced trans/cis isomerization of AZB in these hybrid host-guest compounds is improved compared to that of solid AZB. A population of the excited cis state up to 30% has been obtained for AZB0.66@MIL-68(In). However, no light-induced trans/cis isomerization was observed for AZB0.5@MIL-53(Al). Structural models obtained from high-resolution synchrotron powder diffraction data show that AZB molecules are densely packed within the channels of MIL-53(Al) so that no trans/cis isomerization can occur. A different situation was observed for AZB in the larger channels of MIL-68(Ga). Thus, this investigation shows the influence of the host material on the switching behavior of the embedded AZB molecules. PMID:23409796

Alteration assemblages in the Miller Range and Elephant Moraine regions of Antarctica: Comparisons between terrestrial igneous rocks and Martian meteorites  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The weathering products present in igneous terrestrial Antarctic samples were analyzed, and compared with those found in the four Miller Range nakhlite Martian meteorites. The aim of these comparisons was to determine which of the alteration phases in the Miller Range nakhlites are produced by terrestrial weathering, and what effect rock composition has on these phases. Antarctic terrestrial samples MIL 05031 and EET 96400, along with the Miller Range nakhlites MIL 03346 and 090032, were found to contain secondary alteration assemblages at their externally exposed surfaces. Despite the difference in primary mineralogy, the assemblages of these rocks consist mostly of sulfates (jarosite in MIL 05031, jarosite and gypsum in EET 96400) and iddingsite-like Fe-clay. As neither of the terrestrial samples contains sulfur-bearing primary minerals, and these minerals are rare in the Miller Range nakhlites, it appears that SO42-, possibly along with some of the Na+, K+, and Ca+ in these phases, was sourced from wind-blown sea spray and biogenic emissions from the southern ocean. Cl enrichment in the terrestrially derived "iddingsite" of MIL 05031 and MIL 03346, and the presence of halite at the exterior edge of MIL 090032, can also be explained by this process. However, jarosite within and around the olivine-bound melt inclusions of MIL 090136 is present in the interior of the meteorite and, therefore, is probably the product of preterrestrial weathering on Mars.

Superior performance of metal-organic frameworks over zeolites as solid acid catalysts in the Prins reaction: green synthesis of nopol.  

PubMed

The catalytic performance of a set of metal-organic frameworks [CuBTC, FeBTC, MIL-100(Fe), MIL-100(Cr), ZIF-8, MIL-53(Al)] was investigated in the Prins condensation of ?-pinene with formaldehyde and compared with the catalytic behavior of conventional aluminosilicate zeolites BEA and FAU and titanosilicate zeolite MFI (TS-1). The activity of the investigated metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) increased with the increasing concentration of accessible Lewis acid sites in the order ZIF-8<MIL-53(Al)MIL-100(Cr)<MIL-100(Fe). Unwanted ?-pinene-like isomerization takes place on the strong Brønsted acid sites of zeolites BEA and FAU, which showed significantly lower selectivity to the target nopol than the MOFs. Its high activity, the preservation of its structure and active sites, and the possibility to use it in at least three catalytic cycles without loss of activity make MIL-100 (Fe) the best performing catalyst of the series for the Prins condensation of ?-pinene and paraformaldehyde. Our report exemplifies the advantages of MOFs over zeolites as solid catalysts in liquid-phase reactions for the production of fine chemicals. PMID:23592600

Radiosensitizing effect of intratumoral interleukin-12 gene electrotransfer in murine sarcoma  

PubMed Central

Background Interleukin-12 (IL-12) based radiosensitization is an effective way of tumor treatment. Local cytokine production, without systemic shedding, might provide clinical benefit in radiation treatment of sarcomas. Therefore, the aim was to stimulate intratumoral IL-12 production by gene electrotransfer of plasmid coding for mouse IL-12 (mIL-12) into the tumors, in order to explore its radiosensitizing effect after single or multiple intratumoral gene electrotransfer. Methods Solid SA-1 fibrosarcoma tumors, on the back of A/J mice, were treated intratumorally by mIL-12 gene electrotransfer and 24 h later irradiated with a single dose. Treatment effectiveness was measured by tumor growth delay and local tumor control assay (TCD50 assay). With respect to therapeutic index, skin reaction in the radiation field was scored. The tumor and serum concentrations of cytokines mIL-12 and mouse interferon ? (mIFN?) were measured. Besides single, also multiple intratumoral mIL-12 gene electrotransfer before and after tumor irradiation was evaluated. Results Single intratumoral mIL-12 gene electrotransfer resulted in increased intratumoral but not serum mIL-12 and mIFN? concentrations, and had good antitumor (7.1% tumor cures) and radiosensitizing effect (21.4% tumor cures). Combined treatment resulted in the radiation dose-modifying factor of 2.16. Multiple mIL-12 gene electrotransfer had an even more pronounced antitumor (50% tumor cures) and radiosensitizing (86.7% tumor cures) effect. Conclusions Single or multiple intratumoral mIL-12 gene electrotransfer resulted in increased intratumoral mIL-12 and mIFN? cytokine level, and may provide an efficient treatment modality for soft tissue sarcoma as single or adjuvant therapy to tumor irradiation.

Highly Catalytically Active Palladium Nanoparticles Incorporated Inside Metal-Organic Framework Pores by Double Solvents Method  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Highly monodispersed palladium (Pd) nanoparticles have been successfully incorporated inside the mesopores of a metal-organic framework (MOF), MIL-101, without deposition of Pd nanoparticles on the external surfaces of framework by using the "double solvents" method, in which cyclohexane is used as a hydrophobic solvent to disperse the mesoporous MOF and an aqueous solution of Pd precursor is used as a hydrophilic solvent to fill the mesopores. The resulting Pd@MIL-101 composite is highly catalytically active for the reduction of 4-nitrophenol (4-NPh) by sodium borohydride (NaBH4). The observed excellent catalytic performances are attributed to the small Pd nanoparticles within the pores of MIL-101.

Experimental Evidence Supported by Simulations of a Very High H{sub 2} Diffusion in Metal Organic Framework Materials  

SciTech Connect

Quasielastic neutron scattering measurements are combined with molecular dynamics simulations to extract the self-diffusion coefficient of hydrogen in the metal organic frameworks MIL-47(V) and MIL-53(Cr). We find that the diffusivity of hydrogen at low loading is about 2 orders of magnitude higher than in zeolites. Such a high mobility has never been experimentally observed before in any nanoporous materials, although it was predicted in carbon nanotubes. Either 1D or 3D diffusion mechanisms are elucidated depending on the chemical features of the MIL framework.

The formation of weathering products on the LEW 85320 ordinary chondrite - Evidence from carbon and oxygen stable isotope compositions and implications for carbonates in SNC meteorites  

SciTech Connect

Isotopic analysis of nesquehonite recovered from the surface of the LEW 85320 H5 ordinary chondrite shows that the delta C-13 and delta O-18 values of the two generations of bicarbonate (Antarctic and Texas) are different: delta C-13 = + 7.9 per mil and + 4.2 per mil; delta O-18 = + 17.9 per mil and + 12.1 per mil, respectively. Carbon isotopic compositions are consistent with equilibrium formation from atmospheric carbon dioxide at - 2 + or - 4 C (Antarctic) and + 16 + or - 4 C (Texas). Oxygen isotopic data imply that the water required for nesquehonite precipitation was derived from atmospheric water vapor or glacial meltwater which had locally exchanged with silicates, either in the meteorite or in underlying bedrock. Although carbonates with similar delta C-13 values have been identified in the SNC meteorites EETA 79001 and Nakhla, petrographic and temperature constraints argue against their simply being terrestrial weathering products. 35 refs.

Low-temperature loading of Cu+ species over porous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and adsorptive desulfurization with Cu+-loaded MOFs.  

PubMed

Porous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs, MIL-100-Fe, iron-benzenetricarboxylate) supported with Cu(+) species were obtained for the first time under mild condition without high temperature calcinations. The Cu(+)-loaded MOFs were evaluated as efficient adsorbents for the liquid-phase adsorption of benzothiophene (BT). The effect of Cu(+) loading on the adsorption kinetics and maximum adsorption capacity (Q(0)) for the adsorption of BT was also studied. Q(0) increased with increasing copper loading up to a Cu/Fe (wt./wt.) ratio of 0.07 in Cu(+)-loaded-MIL-100-Fe, resulting in an increase in the Q(0) by 14% compared with the virgin MIL-100-Fe without Cu(+) ions. Since the surface area and pore volume decrease with the loading of copper, the increased Q(0) over the Cu(+)-loaded MIL-100-Fe adsorbents suggests specific favorable interactions (probably by ?-complexation) between Cu(+) and BT.

Chemical-defense flight-glove ensemble evaluation. Final report, June 1986-February 1987  

SciTech Connect

Four chemical-defense flight-glove ensembles were evaluated for their effect on manual dexterity. Two- and three-layer combinations included in the study were: cotton liner/7-mil butyl/Nomex; cotton liner/12.5-mil epichlorohydron butyl/Nomex; Nomex/7-mil butyl (no liner); and, Nomex/12.5-mil epichlorohydron butyl (no liner). Fifteen male and 15 female subjects performed five dexterity tests bare-handed and while wearing each of the glove ensembles. Results indicated that, as expected, all gloved conditions produced significantly poorer performances that did the bare-handed condition, and two-layer combinations resulted in consistently better performances that did the three-layer combinations. Although subjects' performance were least impaired by the Nomex/butyl 7 combination, the butyl 7 gloves tended to tear. For this reason, the two-layer combinations of Nomex/epichlorohydron butyl 12.5 appears to be the most practical ensemble.

CVD-produced boron filaments  

SciTech Connect

A technique for producing boron filaments with an average tensile strength of 6.89 GPa has been developed which involves longitudinal splitting of the filament and core (substrate) removal by etching. Splitting is accomplished by a pinch wheel device which continuously splits filaments in lengths of 3.0 m by applying a force to the side of the filament to create a crack which is then propagated along the axis by a gentle sliding action. To facilitate the splitting, a single 10 mil tungsten substrate is used instead of the usual 0.5 mil substrate. A solution of hot 30% hydrogen peroxide is used to remove the core without attacking the boron. An alternative technique is to alter the residual stress by heavily etching the filament. Average strengths in the 4.83-5.52 GPa range have been obtained by etching an 8 mil filament to 4 mil.

Metal-organic frameworks with wine-rack motif: what determines their flexibility and elastic properties?  

PubMed

We present here a framework for the analysis of the full tensors of second-order elastic constants of metal-organic frameworks, which can be obtained by ab initio calculations. We describe the various mechanical properties one can derive from such tensors: directional Young's modulus, shear modulus, Poisson ratio, and linear compressibility. We then apply this methodology to four different metal-organic frameworks displaying a wine-rack structure: MIL-53(Al), MIL-47, MIL-122(In), and MIL-140A. From these results, we shed some light into the link between mechanical properties, geometric shape, and compliance of the framework of these porous solids. We conclude by proposing a simple criterion to assess the framework compliance, based on the lowest eigenvalue of its second-order elastic tensor. PMID:23656148

Monolithic AlGaAs-GaAs HBT single- and dual-stage ultra-broadband amplifiers  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The circuit design and performance of single- and dual-stage ultra-wideband monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) amplifiers using AlGaAs-GaAs heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) are presented. The single-stage feedback amplifier has 10 dB of gain and a 3-dB bandwidth of DC to 18 GHz. The two-stage AC-coupled version achieves over 20 dB of gain and has a 3-dB bandwidth of 0.1 to 18 GHz. These amplifiers are extremely small in size (single-stage: 24 mils x 24 mils, two-stage: 24 mils x 40 mils) since there are no reactive matching elements. This results in high chip yield and low cost.

Boosting instance prototypes to detect local dermoscopic features.  

PubMed

Local dermoscopic features are useful in many dermoscopic criteria for skin cancer detection. We address the problem of detecting local dermoscopic features from epiluminescence (ELM) microscopy skin lesion images. We formulate the recognition of local dermoscopic features as a multi-instance learning (MIL) problem. We employ the method of diverse density (DD) and evidence confidence (EC) function to convert MIL to a single-instance learning (SIL) problem. We apply Adaboost to improve the classification performance with support vector machines (SVMs) as the base classifier. We also propose to boost the selection of instance prototypes through changing the data weights in the DD function. We validate the methods on detecting ten local dermoscopic features from a dataset with 360 images. We compare the performance of the MIL approach, its boosting version, and a baseline method without using MIL. Our results show that boosting can provide performance improvement compared to the other two methods. PMID:21096478

Ocean corrosion experiment: results from one year of exposure. [HY-80; AISI 4340  

SciTech Connect

Five different structural alloys were exposed to the environment at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean at a depth of 5860 meters for one year. Results show that the amount of corrosion products released over one year is less than that reported elsewhere by factors of four for low alloy steels and 30 for corrosion-resistant alloys. These differences are attrributed to oxygen concentration, water temperature, lower biological activity, and scaling. On the average, low alloy steels released corrosion products equivalent to 1.05 mils of metal compared to 4.4 mils in the literature. Similarly, corrosion resistant alloys released corrosion products equivalent to 0.04 mil of metal compared to 1.1 mils in the literature. 42 figures.

The one-pot postfunctionalization allows anchoring a molecular nickel complex into a mesoporous metal-organic framework (Ni@(Fe)MIL-101). It is generating a very active and reusable catalyst for the liquid-phase ethylene dimerization to selectively form 1-butene. Higher selectivity for 1-butene is found using the Ni@(Fe)MIL-101 catalyst than reported for molecular nickel diimino complexes. PMID:23470137

Tumor protection by IL-7 secreting whole cell vaccine is merely mediated by NK1.1-positive cells.  

PubMed

As prostatic epithelia constitutively produce interleukin 7 (IL-7), also responsible for the development and hemostasis of T cells and NK cells, it is important to examine its ability to protect against prostate cancer, and its possible role in future vaccine strategies against prostate cancer. RM-9/mIL-7 cells were used as mIL-7 secreting whole cell vaccine to prevent tumor growth upon a subcutaneous RM-9 challenge in C57bl/6 mice. The RM-9/mIL-7 vaccination effect was studied by CD3, CD4, CD8, or NK1.1 depletion experiments in C57bl/6 mice. RM-9/mIL-7-vaccinated animals showed longer survival times (P<0.0001) than nonvaccinated mice. Depletion of nonvaccinated mice showed a reduction of CD3, CD4, CD8, and NK1.1 cells with 97%, 56%, 99%, and 88%, respectively. RM-9/mIL-7-vaccinated mice, depleted for CD3, CD4, CD8, or NK1.1, all showed shortened host survival times with regard to the nondepleted vaccinated mice group. Moreover, fewer mice survived the tumor challenge compared with the nondepleted RM-9/mIL-7 vaccination group. The shortest survival was observed for NK1.1-depleted mice, which was nearly comparable with survival times of nonvaccinated mice. RM-9/mIL-7-vaccinated mice demonstrated prolonged survival times compared with the survival times of nonvaccinated mice, after tumor challenge administration. The detected immune response against the RM-9 tumor challenge showed to be merely related to the NK1.1-expressing cells, after RM-9/mIL-7 vaccination. IL-7 produced by the prostatic epithelia itself and the role of NK1.1-expressing cells could provide new potential for future immunotherapeutic modalities to recruit immunologic cells against prostate cancer, and its metastases.

Conversion of cellulose and cellobiose into sorbitol catalyzed by ruthenium supported on a polyoxometalate/metal-organic framework hybrid.  

PubMed

Cellulose and cellobiose were selectively converted into sorbitol over water-tolerant phosphotungstic acid (PTA)/metal- organic-framework-hybrid-supported ruthenium catalysts, Ru-PTA/MIL-100(Cr), under aqueous hydrogenation conditions. The goal was to investigate the relationship between the acid/metal balance of bifunctional catalysts Ru-PTA/MIL-100(Cr) and their performance in the catalytic conversion of cellulose and cellobiose into sugar alcohols. The control of the amount and strength of acid sites in the supported PTA/MIL-100(Cr) was achieved through the effective control of encapsulated-PTA loading in MIL-100(Cr). This design and preparation method led to an appropriately balanced Ru-PTA/MIL-100(Cr) in terms of Ru dispersion and hydrogenation capacity on the one hand, and acid site density of PTA/MIL-100(Cr) (responsible for acid-catalyzed hydrolysis) on the other hand. The ratio of acid site density to the number of Ru surface atoms (nA /nRu ) of Ru-PTA/MIL-100(Cr) was used to monitor the balance between hydrogenation and hydrolysis functions; the optimum balance between the two catalytic functions, that is, 8.84MIL-100(Cr) catalyst with loadings of 3.2?wt?% for Ru and 16.7?wt?% for PTA. This research thus opens new perspectives for the rational design of acid/metal bifunctional catalysts for biomass conversion. PMID:23619979

Postsynthetic ligand and cation exchange in robust metal-organic frameworks.  

PubMed

Postsynthetic ligand and metal ion exchange (PSE) processes are shown to readily occur in several "inert" metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), including zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs). Ligand exchange can occur between solid samples, as was demonstrated under relatively mild conditions with two robust, topologically distinct MOFs, MIL-53(Al) and MIL-68(In). Interestingly, ligand PSE is not observed with MIL-101(Cr), which is attributed to the kinetic inertness of the Cr(III) ion. In addition to ligand exchange, metal ion (cation) PSE was also studied between intact MOF microcrystalline particles. Metal ion transfer between MIL-53(Al) and MIL-53(Fe) was readily observed. These PSE reactions were monitored and the products characterized by a number of techniques, including aerosol time-of-flight mass spectrometry, which permits single-particle compositional analysis. To show the potential synthetic utility of this approach, the PSE process was used to prepare the first Ti(IV) analogue of the robust UiO-66(Zr) framework. Finally, experiments to rule out mechanisms other than PSE (i.e., aggregation, dissolution/recrystallization) were performed. The results demonstrate that PSE, of either ligands or cations, is common even with highly robust MOFs such as UiO-66(Zr), MILs, and ZIFs. Furthermore, it is shown that PSE is useful in preparing novel materials that cannot be obtained via other synthetic methods. PMID:23039827

miles-apart-Mediated regulation of cell-fibronectin interaction and myocardial migration in zebrafish.  

PubMed

The migration of myocardial precursor cells towards the embryonic midline underlies the formation of the heart tube and is a key process of heart organogenesis. The zebrafish mutation miles-apart (mil), which affects the gene encoding a sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor, is characterized by defective migration of myocardial precursor cells and results in the formation of two laterally positioned hearts, a condition known as cardia bifida. The mechanism that disrupts myocardial migration in mil mutants remains largely unclear. To investigate how mil regulates this process, here we analyze the interactions between mil and other mediators of myocardial migration. We show that mil function is associated with the other known cardia bifida locus, natter/fibronectin (nat/fn), which encodes fibronectin, a major component of the extracellular matrix, in the control of myocardial migration. By using a primary culture system of embryonic zebrafish cells, we also show that signaling from the sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor regulates cell-fibronectin interactions in zebrafish. In addition, localized inhibition and activation of cell-fibronectin interactions during the stages of myocardial migration reveal that the temporal regulation of cell-fibronectin interaction by mil is required for proper myocardial migration. Our study reveals novel functional links between sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor signaling and cell-fibronectin interaction in the control of myocardial migration during zebrafish heart organogenesis.

Nitrogen stable isotope fractionation along trophic level pathways in deep sea bamboo corals  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Deep-sea bamboo corals (order Gorgonacea, family Isididae) found on seamounts on the California Margin (37° 22'N - 31° 54'N) have the potential to record annual to subannual changes in water mass chemistry over long periods of time (75-300 years). These corals are composed of a two-part skeleton of calcite internodes segmented by proteinaceous organic nodes. Radiocarbon analyses of the organic nodes show the presence of the anthropogenic bomb spike, reflecting a surface-derived food source for the corals (pre-bomb values of -81.3 per mil - -116. per mil, post-bomb values of 61.8 per mil - 81.3 per mil). Nitrogen stable isotopic analyses of the organic nodes (average ?15N = 13.78 per mil - 18.30 per mil) suggest that the corals feed on surface-derived organic matter, although not directly on sinking particulate organic matter but rather on an intermediary such as zooplankton. This study examines the nitrogen stable isotopic content of surface water plankton, bamboo coral polyp material, and bamboo coral organic node material sampled along the California Margin in 2007. Comparing these data with previously established zooplankton nitrogen stable isotope data will enable investigation of the pathway of surface water organic sources to bamboo coral organic material.

Reconstitution of an Argonaute-dependent small RNA biogenesis pathway reveals a hand-over mechanism involving the RNA exosome and the exonuclease QIP  

PubMed Central

Summary Argonaute proteins are required for the biogenesis of some small RNAs (sRNAs), including the PIWI-interacting RNAs and some microRNAs. How Argonautes mediate maturation of sRNAs independent of their slicer activity is not clear. The maturation of the Neurospora miRNA-like sRNA, milR-1, requires the Argonaute protein QDE-2, Dicer, and QIP. Here, we reconstitute this Argonaute-dependent sRNA biogenesis pathway in vitro and discover that the RNA exosome is also required for milR-1 production. Our results demonstrate that QDE-2 mediates milR-1 maturation by recruiting exosome and QIP and by determining the size of milR-1. The exonuclease QIP first separates the QDE-2-bound pre-milR-1 duplex and then mediates 3’ to 5’ trimming and maturation of pre-milRNA together with exosome using a hand-over mechanism. In addition, exosome is also important for the decay of sRNAs. Together, our results establish a biochemical mechanism of an Argonaute-dependent sRNA biogenesis pathway and critical roles of exosome in sRNA processing.

In vitro Susceptibility of Leishmania donovani to Miltefosine in Indian Visceral Leishmaniasis.  

PubMed

Abstract. Promastigote miltefosine (MIL) susceptibility was performed on Leishmania donovani isolates from Indian patients with visceral leishmaniasis treated with MIL. Isolates that were obtained before the onset of MIL treatment, after completion of treatment (29th day), or at the time of treatment failure, were screened using in vitro promastigote assay. The MIL susceptibility of the pre-treatment isolates (N = 24, mean IC50 ± SEM = 3.74 ± 0.38 ?M) was significantly higher than that of the post-treatment group (N = 26, mean IC50 ± SEM = 6.15 ± 0.52 ?M; P = 0.0006) but was similar in the cured patients (N = 22, mean IC50 ± SEM = 5.58 ± 0.56 ?M) and those who failed treatment (N = 28, mean IC50 ± SEM = 4.53 ± 0.47 ?M). The pre/post-treatment results thus showed a 2-fold difference, whereas isolated from cured versus failed patients showed a similar susceptibility, suggesting that this higher tolerance is not responsible for MIL-treatment failure. Our work highlights the need for careful monitoring of MIL susceptibility for implementation in national VL elimination programs. PMID:23980130

Eclogitic Minerals in Diamond: MORB Reincarnated  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Following participation in creation of oceanic lithosphere, MORB and related rocks can be altered, contaminated and eventually subducted. Evidence for these processes survives in Alpine eclogites, subcratonic eclogite xenoliths and especially in some diamonds. One of the key pieces of evidence exists as anomalous oxygen isotope values of silicates in these high-pressure assemblages. Sea floor alteration changes the d18-O VSMOW values of MORB from +5.7 +/- 0.2 per mil in fresh samples, to values as high as +27 per mil in examples that have undergone low-T ocean floor weathering. High d18-O values are also found in ophiolite basalts (to +20 per mil) and Alpine eclogites (to +16 per mil), but d18-O values of mantle eclogite xenoliths are only somewhat anomalous (to +9.3 per mil). Using SIMS, we have studied the stable isotope composition of diamonds and their eclogitic mineral inclusions from Guaniamo, Venezuela, in situ in polished section. The d18-O values of six coesite inclusions in four diamonds are in the range +10.2 to +16.9 per mil, and eight garnets in five diamonds are in the range +8.8 to +12.9 per mil, with a ninth example at +5.5 per mil. As oxygen isotope fractionations are known to be small under mantle conditions, these data provide compelling evidence for an altered ocean floor basalt protolith for this eclogitic diamond suite. Carbon isotope values (d13-C PDB) of host diamonds are very low (approximately in the range -12 to -22 per mil), values considered by many workers to indicate a significant component of biogenic carbon in the diamonds. Two stones have higher values of d13-C (-7 to -8 per mil), more typical of mantle carbon, but also consistent with a crustal source. Although isotopically light carbon can be created by mantle fractionation processes, the correlation we have shown here between anomalous oxygen and carbon isotope signatures within single diamonds strongly supports a crustal biogenic source for the carbon in these diamonds.

Chimeric Anti-CD14 IGG2/4 Hybrid Antibodies for Therapeutic Intervention in Pig and Human Models of Inflammation  

PubMed Central

CD14 is a key recognition molecule of innate immune responses, interacting with several TLRs. TLR signaling cross-talks extensively with the complement system, and combined CD14 and complement inhibition has been proved effective in attenuating inflammatory responses. Pig models of human diseases have emerged as valuable tools to study therapeutic intervention, but suitable neutralizing Abs are rare. Undesired Fc-mediated functions, such as platelet activation and IL-8 release induced by the porcine CD14-specific clone Mil2, limit further studies. Therefore, an inert human IgG2/IgG4 hybrid C region was chosen for an rMil2. As revealed in ex vivo and in vivo pig experiments, rMil2 inhibited the CD14-mediated proinflammatory cytokine response similar to the original clone, but lacked the undesired Fc-effects, and inflammation was attenuated further by simultaneous complement inhibition. Moreover, rMil2 bound porcine FcRn, a regulator of t1/2 and biodistribution. Thus, rMil2, particularly combined with complement inhibitors, should be well suited for in vivo studies using porcine models of diseases, such as sepsis and ischemia-reperfusion injury.

Chimeric Anti-CD14 IGG2/4 Hybrid Antibodies for Therapeutic Intervention in Pig and Human Models of Inflammation.  

PubMed

CD14 is a key recognition molecule of innate immune responses, interacting with several TLRs. TLR signaling cross-talks extensively with the complement system, and combined CD14 and complement inhibition has been proved effective in attenuating inflammatory responses. Pig models of human diseases have emerged as valuable tools to study therapeutic intervention, but suitable neutralizing Abs are rare. Undesired Fc-mediated functions, such as platelet activation and IL-8 release induced by the porcine CD14-specific clone Mil2, limit further studies. Therefore, an inert human IgG2/IgG4 hybrid C region was chosen for an rMil2. As revealed in ex vivo and in vivo pig experiments, rMil2 inhibited the CD14-mediated proinflammatory cytokine response similar to the original clone, but lacked the undesired Fc-effects, and inflammation was attenuated further by simultaneous complement inhibition. Moreover, rMil2 bound porcine FcRn, a regulator of t1/2 and biodistribution. Thus, rMil2, particularly combined with complement inhibitors, should be well suited for in vivo studies using porcine models of diseases, such as sepsis and ischemia-reperfusion injury. Similarly, the recombinant anti-human CD14 IgG2/4 Ab, r18D11, was generated with greatly reduced Fc-mediated effects and preserved inhibitory function ex vivo. Such Abs might be drug candidates for the treatment of innate immunity-mediated human diseases. PMID:24062486

Lubricant evaluation and performance. Final technical report, January 1987-June 1988  

SciTech Connect

This effort involved the development of improved methods for defining and measuring turbine engine lubricant performance and the development of improved techniques for lubricant monitoring, lubrication system health monitoring, investigating antiwear characteristics and load carrying capacities of lubricants. In Task I, Arrhenius plots were developed for describing the effective life of MIL L 7808, MIL-L-23699 and 4 cSt viscosity candidate lubricants as a function of time and temperature for selected limiting values of changes in physical and chemical properties. In Task II, significant improvement in AE spectrometer sensitivity for analyzing wear metal particles was achieved when using a cup-tip electrode with the reversible polarity pin stand. In Task III, the COBRA, a dielectric constant (DC) tester and a dielectric breakdown strength device were evaluated as lubricant monitoring devices. In Tasks IV and V, an assessment of the literature on lubricant load carrying capacity (LCC) test methods was made. In Task VI, a software system was developed and implemented on the Zenith Z-100 microcomputer for storage, retrieval and correlation of MIL-L-7808 lubricant qualification data. In Task VII, the remaining useful life of a lubricant evaluation rig (RULLER) was developed for MIL-L-7808 and MIL-L-23699 type lubricants and was based on reductive cyclic voltammetry. (FR)

Identification of regions within the third FnIII-like domain of the IL-5Ralpha involved in IL-5 interaction.  

PubMed

Previously, two binding sites for interleukin 5 (IL-5) were identified on the IL-5 receptor alpha chain (IL-5Ralpha). They are located within the CD loop of the first fibronectin type III (FnIII)-like domain and the EF loop of the second FnIII-like domain. The first binding site was identified by exploiting the different abilities of human IL-5Ralpha (hIL-5Ralpha) and mouse IL-5Ralpha (mIL-5Ralpha) to bind hIL-5. Here we show that ovine IL-5 (oIL-5) has the ability to activate the hIL-5Ralpha but not the mIL-5Ralpha. By using chimeras of the mIL-5Ralpha and hIL-5Ralpha we demonstrate that residues within the first and third FnIII-like domains of mIL-5Ralpha are responsible for this lack of activity. Furthermore, mutation of residues on hIL-5Ralpha to mIL-5Ralpha within the predicted DE and FG loop regions of the third FnIII domain reduces oIL-5 activity. These results show that regions of the third FnIII domain of IL-5Ralpha are involved in binding, in addition to the regions in domains one and two of the IL-5Ralpha that were identified in an earlier study.

Molecular and cellular effects of hexadecylphosphocholine (Miltefosine) in human myeloid leukaemic cell lines.  

PubMed

The molecular and cellular effects of the anti-neoplastic alkylphospholipid hexadecylphosphocholine (Miltefosine, MIL) on parameters associated with growth and differentiation of human myeloid leukaemic cell lines U937, KG1 and KG1a were investigated. On a cellular level, MIL has dose-dependent differentiation-inducing growth-promoting and cytotoxic activities exemplified by induction of respiratory burst activity, stimulation of interleukin-3 (IL-3)/granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF)-dependent growth of the KG1 cell line in soft agar culture, inhibition of cellular net growth and finally cell death. By northern blot analysis, transcription of functional receptors for IL-3, GM-CSF, G-CSF and FcRI were studied. It was shown that MIL has stimulatory activity on IL-3 and GM-CSF receptor gene transcription. In addition, the transcription of proliferation- and differentiation-associated proteins, namely histone subtypes, c-myc and NF-kappa B p50, were studied. MIL suppressed c-myc and enhanced NF-kappa B p50 transcription in the U937 cell line, comparable to the well-characterised differentiation-inducing phorbolester 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA). We conclude that the interaction of MIL with its molecular target(s) in myeloid cells induces molecular and cellular effects associated with induction of differentiation, distinct from its cytotoxic activity.

Effect of NH2 and CF3 functionalization on the hydrogen sorption properties of MOFs.  

PubMed

The hydrogen adsorption capacity and heat of adsorption at 77 K have been evaluated for several porous metal terephthalate MOFs (MIL-53(Fe), MIL-125(Ti) and UiO-66(Zr)), as well as in their -NH(2) and -(CF(3))(2) functionalized isoreticular structures. The capacity of hydrogen is basically related to the textural properties of the solids and not to their composition. The heats of adsorption at low coverage are on the whole close to those usually reported for MOFs (6-7 kJ mol(-1)), except for the UiO-66(Zr) and MIL-53(Fe)-(CF(3))(2) analogues, whereas the presence of Lewis acid sites and/or a confinement effect enhances significantly the strength of interaction with hydrogen.

Carbon isotopic evidence for methane hydrate instability during quaternary interstadials  

PubMed

Large (about 5 per mil) millennial-scale benthic foraminiferal carbon isotopic oscillations in the Santa Barbara Basin during the last 60,000 years reflect widespread shoaling of sedimentary methane gradients and increased outgassing from gas hydrate dissociation during interstadials. Furthermore, several large, brief, negative excursions (up to -6 per mil) coinciding with smaller shifts (up to -3 per mil) in depth-stratified planktonic foraminiferal species indicate massive releases of methane from basin sediments. Gas hydrate stability was modulated by intermediate-water temperature changes induced by switches in thermohaline circulation. These oscillations were likely widespread along the California margin and elsewhere, affecting gas hydrate instability and contributing to millennial-scale atmospheric methane oscillations.

Immobilizing Highly Catalytically Active Pt Nanoparticles inside the Pores of Metal-Organic Framework: A Double Solvents Approach  

SciTech Connect

Ultrafine Pt nanoparticles were successfully immobilized inside the pores of a metal-organic framework MIL-101 without deposition of Pt nanoparticles on the external surfaces of framework by using a 'double solvents' method. The resulting Pt@MIL-101 composites with different Pt loadings represent the first highly active MOF-immobilized metal nanocatalysts for catalytic reactions in all three phases: liquid-phase ammonia borane hydrolysis; solid-phase ammonia borane thermal dehy-drogenation and gas-phase CO oxidation. The observed excellent catalytic performances are at-tributed to the small Pt nanoparticles within the pores of MIL-101. 'We are thankful to AIST and METI for financial support.

Microwave integrated circuits procedures evaluation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Microwave Integrated Circuits and Stripline Microwave Circuits are used widely in military ground, airborne, and spaceborne systems. The current military specifications which are invoked generally for hybrid circuits (MIL-STD-883B and MIL-M-38510) require either up-dating to encompass these two classes of microcircuits or new test methods need to be developed. New test methods have been developed for the screening, quality, and lot conformance testing of Microwave Integrated Circuits and Stripline Microwave Circuits. Pre-seal visual criteria for Stripline Microwave Circuits was also developed as well as an up-date to Method 2017, MIL-STD-883B for Microwave Integrated Circuits. Computer analysis of the various construction methods utilized by the industry was performance as a first step evaluation of the construction methods and the proposed criteria.

Anisotropic elastic properties of flexible metal-organic frameworks: how soft are soft porous crystals?  

PubMed

We performed ab initio calculations of the elastic constants of five flexible metal-organic frameworks (MOFs): MIL-53(Al), MIL-53(Ga), MIL-47, and the square and lozenge structures of DMOF-1. Tensorial analysis of the elastic constants reveals a highly anisotropic elastic behavior, some deformation directions exhibiting very low Young's modulus and shear modulus. This anisotropy can reach a 400:1 ratio between the most rigid and weakest directions, in stark contrast to the case of nonflexible MOFs such as MOF-5 and ZIF-8. In addition, we show that flexible MOFs can display extremely large negative linear compressibility. These results uncover the microscopic roots of stimuli-induced structural transitions in flexible MOFs, by linking the local elastic behavior of the material and its multistability. PMID:23215398

Immobilizing metal nanoparticles to metal-organic frameworks with size and location control for optimizing catalytic performance.  

PubMed

AuNi alloy nanoparticles were successfully immobilized to MIL-101 with size and location control for the first time by double solvents method (DSM) combined with a liquid-phase concentration-controlled reduction strategy. When an overwhelming reduction approach was employed, the uniform 3D distribution of the ultrafine AuNi nanoparticles (NPs) encapsulated in the pores of MIL-101 was achieved, as demonstrated by TEM and electron tomographic measurements, which brings light to new opportunities in the fabrication of ultrafine non-noble metal-based NPs throughout the interior pores of MOFs. The ultrafine AuNi alloy NPs inside the mesoporous MIL-101 exerted exceedingly high activity for hydrogen generation from the catalytic hydrolysis of ammonia borane. PMID:23805877

Corrosion resistance of inconel 690 to borax, boric acid, and boron nitride at 1100{degrees}C  

SciTech Connect

Significant general and localized corrosion was observed on Inconel 690 coupons following exposure to borax, boric acid and boron nitride at 1100{degrees}C. Severe localized attack at and below the melt line was observed on coupons exposed to borax. An intergranular attack at and below the melt line was observed on coupons exposed to borax. An intergranular attack (IGA) of the Inconel 690 was also observed. Severe internal void formation and IGA (30 mils penetration after 3 days) was observed in the coupon exposed to boric acid. Both borax and boric acid remove the protective chromium oxide; however, this layer can be reestablished by heating the Inconel 690 to 975 {degrees}C in air for several hours. Inconel 690 in direct contact with boron nitride resulted in the formation of a thick chromium borate layer, a general corrosion rate of 50 to 90 mils per year, and internal void formation of 1 mil per day.

Environmental changes in a fresh-water influenced Upper Cretaceous succession (Austria)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The interplay of Late Cretaceous basin subsidence and sea-level oscillations produced a cyclic freshwater-marine succession within the Gosau Group in the basement of the Vienna Basin (Austria). Cycles have been investigated in the Markgraf Neusiedl 1 borehole cores (courtesy of OMV AG) of the Glinzendorf syncline. The Markgraf Neusiedl core sediments can be correlated to similar strata of the Grünbach Formation in the outcrop area of Grünbach-Neue Welt (Lower Austria, Northern Calcareous Alps). There, sections from abandoned coal mines were measured and described in detail. Biostratigraphic data indicate a Late Santonian to Early Campanian age of these cyclic sediments. The environment was characterized as terrestrial freshwater swamps interfingering with shallow brackish to marine sediments of a delta plain under warm and humid subtropical climate conditions. The Upper Cretaceous borehole section starts with conglomerates and pebbly sandstones of alluvial environments. Conglomerates at around 4100 m depth yield probably freshwater algal calcite crusts with carbon isotopes of -3.2 per mil VPDB and oxygen isotopes around -4 per mil VPDB. At 4020 m coal seams and shale intercalations are present, grading into a shaly to silty succession with occasional mollusc layers up to ca. 3400 m. Carbon isotope values of 1 to 1.5 per mil and oxygen isotopes around -5 per mil are recorded. The upper part of the Cretaceous succession up to ca. 3200 m becomes more sandy to silty and carbon isotopes become more negative, around -3 to -5 per mil and oxygen isotope values up to -8 per mil, which may indicate a stronger diagenetic influence as carbon and oxyen isotopes covary in that interval. Marine-freshwater cycles are expressed in geochemistry data and fossil assemblages, i.e. the rare occurrence of marine microfossils such as foraminifers and dinoflagellates.

Variability in the Mass and Stable Carbon Isotopic Composition of Fossil-Fuel-Derived Carbon Dioxide Emissions for the Countries of the North American Carbon Program  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

As we focus more intently on the carbon cycle in North America, the spatial and temporal scales of our observations become more important. The carbon dioxide released from fossil fuel consumption can show large variability in both spatial and temporal scales. This presentation will focus on this variability. We have compiled a data set that contains the monthly emissions of carbon dioxide released from fossil-fuel consumption for the countries of the North American Carbon Program. These data are consistent with the annual emissions as reported by CDIAC. As an example of spatial variability, in August 2000, emissions from Idaho (356 Gg C) and Texas (19,051 Gg C) differed by a factor of 53. As an example of temporal variability, in 1999, emissions from Texas differed by 31% between the months of February (13,807 Gg C) and August (18,107 Gg C). When looking at the stable carbon isotopic composition (del 13 C), variability also exists at these spatial and temporal scales. As an example of spatial variability, in April 1984, emissions from Louisiana (-36.32 per mil) and North Dakota (-25.23 per mil) differed by 11.09 per mil. As an example of temporal variability, in 2002, emissions from Montana differed by 5.22 per mil between the months of July (-28.38 per mil) and December (- 33.60 per mil). Finally, this presentation will also include analysis of the uncertainty associated with these time series. Variations in data collection are such that the uncertainty varies among the three countries of North America and uncertainty increases as the spatial and temporal scales decrease.

Understanding Cellulose-Water Oxygen Isotopic Fractionation in Tropical African Lakes: Implications for Paleoclimatic and Paleohydrologic Reconstruction  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Paleohydrologic reconstructions from lake sedimentary archives have provided insight into Earth's changing climate. One such archive, sediment cellulose, provides paleohydrologic information by preserving a record of changing oxygen isotopic composition of the lake water. Paleohydrologic interpretation is possible because the cellulose-water oxygen isotopic fractionation is both species and temperature independent. Yet, recent analyses of modern macrophytes in several African lakes suggest that potential species and temperature effects might induce more variability in cellulose-water oxygen isotopic fractionation than once thought. Oxygen isotopic analysis of aquatic macrophytes and associated water samples from tropical East African lakes suggests a reduced mean cellulose-water fractionation (mean: +25 per mil) in these tropical environments as opposed to temperate freshwater aquatic ecosystems (mean: +28 per mil). To test a possible temperature effect associated with cellulose-water fractionation in tropical lake environments, four aquatic macrophyte taxa (Lemna, Ceratophyllum, Egeria and Vallisneria) were grown in replicate tanks at 21, 23, 25, 28 and 30° C. All four taxa currently live in tropical East African lakes. The results demonstrate a negative linear relationship between temperature and cellulose-water fractionation in Ceratophyllum with fractionation values of +30 +/- 0.5 per mil at 21° C and +26 +/- 0.2 per mil at 30° C. A similar, though less significant, relationship is observed between temperature and cellulose-water fractionation in Egeria with values of +29.5 +/- 0.4 per mil at 21° C and +28.5 +/- 0.1 per mil at 30° C. Measurements of Vallisneria and Lemna are ongoing. These preliminary results suggest that at temperatures characteristic of tropical aquatic lakes, cellulose-water fractionation may be reduced as compared to such fractionation in colder/temperate lake environments.

Two types of natural gas occurences are present. The major reserves (1.8 x 1011m3) occur in shallow (less than 2.300 m), nonassociated dry gas fields that contain methane with del13C in the range of -63 to -56 per mil. These gas fields are in sandstones interbedded with coals, the gas fields are interpreted as biogenic in origin. Lesser reserves of natural gas are associated with oil in the deeper Hemlock Conglomerate at the base of the Tertiary section; associated gas contains methane with del13C of about -46 per mil.

Aluminum aminoterephthalate MOF particulate materials (NH(2)-MIL-101(Al) and NH(2)-MIL-53(Al)), studied here as components of self-detoxifying surfaces, retained their reactivity following their covalent attachment to protective surfaces utilizing a newly developed strategy in which the MOF particles were deposited on a reactive adhesive composed of polyisobutylene/toluene diisocyanate (PIB/TDI) blends. Following MOF attachment and curing, the MOF primary amino groups were functionalized with highly nucleophilic 4-methylaminopyridine (4-MAP) by disuccinimidyl suberate-activated conjugation. The resulting MOF-4-MAP modified PIB/TDI elastomeric films were mechanically flexible and capable of degrading diisopropyl fluorophosphate (DFP), a chemical threat simulant. PMID:22871803

Ion microprobe determination of sulfur isotopic compositions of sulfides from the Mt. Isa Pb/Zn orebody  

SciTech Connect

The sulfur isotopic compositions of pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena, and sphalerite in samples from the Pb/Zn orebody at Mt. Isa have been determined using the ANU's SHRIMP facility. These have been measured with a spatial resolution of 30 microns. Precision was approx. +/-2 per mil at the 95% confidence limit. Standards of appropriate matrix were used to correct for sputtering-induced fractionation. For the most part, galena and sphalerite appear relatively homogeneous within a sample. Limited variations are found among samples. Chalcopyrite is not necessarily homogeneous within a sample, nor is it necessarily found to be in isotopic equilibrium with adjacent pyrite. Pyrite may vary according to grain size and morphology by as much as 25 per mil within millimeters. Fine-grained, and possibly biogenic, pyrite varies as much as 30 per mil among samples and this is consistent with its formation in a restricted basin environment. Coarser, and probably hydrothermal or metamorphic, pyrite varies by only 15 per mil among samples. Within a sample, the greatest variation is from fine-grained layer to coarse-grained layer. Overgrowth relationships suggest that at least some of the coarse-grained pyrite was introduced to a sediment already supporting a sizeable anaerobic bacteria population. The great variability in coarse-grained pyrites is consistent with multiple episodes of hydrothermal or metamorphic activity.

Estimates of vertical eddy diffusivity in the upper mesosphere in the presence of a mesospheric inversion layer  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Rayleigh and resonance lidar observations were made during the Turbopause experiment at Poker Flat Research Range, Chatanika Alaska (65° N, 147° W) over a 10 h period on the night of 17-18 February 2009. The lidar observations revealed the presence of a strong mesospheric inversion layer (MIL) at 74 km that formed during the observations and was present for over 6 h. The MIL had a maximum temperature of 251 K, amplitude of 27 ± 7 K, a depth of 3.0 km, and overlying lapse rate of 9.4 ± 0.3 K km-1. The MIL was located at the lower edge of the mesospheric sodium layer. During this coincidence the lower edge of the sodium layer was lowered by 2 km to 74 km and the bottomside scale height of the sodium increased from 1 km to 15 km. The structure of the MIL and sodium are analyzed in terms of vertical diffusive transport. The analysis yields a lower bound for the eddy diffusion coefficient of 430 m2 s-1 and the energy dissipation rate of 2.2 mW kg-1 at 76-77 km. This value of the eddy diffusion coefficient, determined from naturally occurring variations in mesospheric temperatures and the sodium layer, is significantly larger than those reported for mean winter values in the Arctic but similar to individual values reported in regions of convective instability by other techniques.

Calculation of Site-specific Carbon-isotope Fractionation in Pedogenic Oxide Minerals  

SciTech Connect

Ab initio molecular dynamics and quantum chemistry techniques are used to calculate the structure, vibrational frequencies, and carbon-isotope fractionation factors of the carbon dioxide component [CO2(m)] of soil (oxy)hydroxide minerals goethite, diaspore, and gibbsite. We have identified two possible pathways of incorporation of CO2(m) into (oxy)hydroxide crystal structures: one in which the C4+ substitutes for four H+ [CO2(m)A] and another in which C4+ substitutes for (Al3+,Fe3+) + H+ [CO2(m)B]. Calculations of isotope fractionation factors give large differences between the two structures, with the CO2(m)A being isotopically lighter than CO2(m)B by ?10 per mil in the case of gibbsite and nearly 20 per mil in the case of goethite. The reduced partition function ratio of CO2(m)B structure in goethite differs from CO2(g) by <1 per mil. The predicted fractionation for gibbsite is >10 per mil higher, close to those measured for calcite and aragonite. The surprisingly large difference in the carbon-isotope fractionation factor between the CO2(m)A and CO2(m)B structures within a given mineral suggests that the isotopic signatures of soil (oxy)hydroxide could be heterogeneous.

Covalent post-synthetic modification of a MOF, (In) MIL-68-NH(2), is carried out in a novel fashion to immobilize amino acids within the structure. Solid-phase peptide coupling methodology opens new perspectives for anchoring chiral bio- and catalytically active species. This could facilitate the immobilization of highly active and/or coordinating moieties inside MOF cavities. PMID:21964419

Seeing is Believing: Video Classification for Computed Tomographic Colonography Using Multiple-Instance Learning  

PubMed Central

In this paper we present development and testing results for a novel colonic polyp classification method for use as part of a computed tomographic colonography (CTC) computer-aided detection (CAD) system. Inspired by the interpretative methodology of radiologists using 3D fly-through mode in CTC reading, we have developed an algorithm which utilizes sequences of images (referred to here as videos) for classification of CAD marks. For each CAD mark, we created a video composed of a series of intraluminal, volume-rendered images visualizing the detection from multiple viewpoints. We then framed the video classification question as a multiple-instance learning (MIL) problem. Since a positive (negative) bag may contain negative (positive) instances, which in our case depends on the viewing angles and camera distance to the target, we developed a novel MIL paradigm to accommodate this class of problems. We solved the new MIL problem by maximizing a L2-norm soft margin using semidefinite programming, which can optimize relevant parameters automatically. We tested our method by analyzing a CTC data set obtained from 50 patients from three medical centers. Our proposed method showed significantly better performance compared with several traditional MIL methods.

LOCA testing of damaged cables  

SciTech Connect

Experiments were conducted to assess the effects of dielectric withstand voltage testing of cables and to assess the survivability of aged and damaged cables under loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA) conditions. High potential testing at 240 Vdc/mil on undamaged cables suggested that no damage was incurred on the selected cables. During aging and LOCA testing, Okonite ethylene propylene rubber cables with a bonded jacket experienced unexpected failures. The failures appear to be primarily related to the level of thermal aging. For Brand Rex crosslinked polyolefin cables, the results suggest that 8 mils of insulation remaining should give the cables a high probability of surviving accident exposure following aging. The voltage levels necessary to detect when 8 mils of insulation remain are expected to be roughly 40 kVdc. This voltage level would almost certainly be unacceptable to a utility for use as a damage assessment tool. Although two Rockbestos silicone rubber cables failed during the accident test, the induced wall thickness did not seem to be the major cause of the failures. It appears likely that under less stressful thermal aging conditions, the cables would survive accident testing with as little as 4 mils or less of insulation remaining.

Sulfation of metal-organic framework: Opportunities for acid catalysis and proton conductivity  

SciTech Connect

A new post-functionalization method for metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) has been developed to introduce acidity for catalysis. Upon treatment with a mixture of triflic anhydride and sulfuric acid, chemically stable MOF structures MIL-101(Cr) and MIL-53(Al) can be sulfated, resulting in a Broensted sulfoxy acid group attached to up to 50% of the aromatic terephthalate linkers of the structure. The sulfated samples have been extensively characterized by solid-state NMR, XANES, and FTIR spectroscopy. The functionalized acidic frameworks show catalytic activity similar to that of acidic polymers like Nafion{reg_sign} display in the esterification of n-butanol with acetic acid (TOF {approx} 1 min{sup -1} {at} 343 K). Water adsorbs strongly up to 4 molecules per sulfoxy acid group, and an additional 2 molecules are taken up at lower temperatures in the 1-D pore channels of S-MIL-53(Al). The high water content and Broensted acidity provide the structure S-MIL-53(Al) a high proton conductivity up to moderate temperatures.

The petrology and geochemistry of Miller Range 05035: A new lunar gabbroic meteorite  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Miller Range (MIL) 05035 is a lunar gabbroic meteorite. The mineralogy, Fe/Mn ratios in olivine and pyroxene, bulk-rock chemical composition and the bulk oxygen isotope values (? 17O = 2.86-2.97‰ and ? 18O = 5.47-5.71‰) are similar to those of other mare basalts, and are taken as supporting evidence for a lunar origin for this meteorite. The sample is dominated by pyroxene grains (54-61% by area mode of thin section) along with large plagioclase feldspar (25-36% by mode) and accessory quartz, ilmenite, spinel, apatite and troilite. The bulk-rock major element composition of MIL 05035 indicates that the sample has a very low-Ti (VLT) to low-Ti lunar heritage (we measure bulk TiO 2 to be 0.9 Wt.%) and has low bulk incompatible trace element (ITE) concentrations, akin to samples from the VLT mare basalt suite. To account for these geochemical characteristics we hypothesize that MIL 05035's parental melt was derived from a mantle region dominated by early cumulates of the magma ocean (comprised principally of olivine and orthopyroxene). MIL 05035 is likely launch paired with the Asuka-881757 and Yamato-793169 basaltic lunar meteorites and the basaltic regolith breccia MET 01210. This group of meteorites (Y/A/M/M) therefore may be a part of a stratigraphic column consisting of an upper regolith environment underlain by a coarsening downwards basalt lava flow.

Palladium nanoparticles encapsulated in a metal-organic framework as efficient heterogeneous catalysts for direct C2 arylation of indoles.  

PubMed

Highly dispersed palladium nanoparticles (Pd NPs) encapsulated in the mesoporous cages of the metal-organic framework (MOF) MIL-101(Cr) have been prepared by using the wetness impregnation method. The Pd NPs were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), N(2) adsorption, transmission electron microscopy, inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The particles size ((2.6±0.5) nm) of the obtained Pd NPs was in good agreement with the cage diameters (2.9 and 3.4 nm) of the MOF. The resulting Pd/MIL-101(Cr) catalyst exhibited extremely high catalytic activities in the direct C2 arylation of substituted indoles by using only 0.1 mol% of the Pd catalyst. Moreover, the catalyst is easily recoverable and can be reused several times without leaching into solution and loss of activity. The combination of the highly dispersible Pd NPs within the accessible mesoporous cages and the favorable adsorption of the aryl halides on MIL-101 are suspected to be the main reasons for the observed high activities of the Pd/MIL-101(Cr) catalyst in the direct C2 arylation of indoles.

Detecting Parkinsons' symptoms in uncontrolled home environments: a multiple instance learning approach.  

PubMed

In this paper, we propose to use a weakly supervised machine learning framework for automatic detection of Parkinson's Disease motor symptoms in daily living environments. Our primary goal is to develop a monitoring system capable of being used outside of controlled laboratory settings. Such a system would enable us to track medication cycles at home and provide valuable clinical feedback. Most of the relevant prior works involve supervised learning frameworks (e.g., Support Vector Machines). However, in-home monitoring provides only coarse ground truth information about symptom occurrences, making it very hard to adapt and train supervised learning classifiers for symptom detection. We address this challenge by formulating symptom detection under incomplete ground truth information as a multiple instance learning (MIL) problem. MIL is a weakly supervised learning framework that does not require exact instances of symptom occurrences for training; rather, it learns from approximate time intervals within which a symptom might or might not have occurred on a given day. Once trained, the MIL detector was able to spot symptom-prone time windows on other days and approximately localize the symptom instances. We monitored two Parkinson's disease (PD) patients, each for four days with a set of five triaxial accelerometers and utilized a MIL algorithm based on axis parallel rectangle (APR) fitting in the feature space. We were able to detect subject specific symptoms (e.g. dyskinesia) that conformed with a daily log maintained by the patients. PMID:23366728

Multifaceted oncolytic virus therapy for glioblastoma in an immunocompetent cancer stem cell model.  

PubMed

Glioblastoma (World Health Organization grade IV) is an aggressive adult brain tumor that is inevitably fatal despite surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. Treatment failures are attributed to combinations of cellular heterogeneity, including a subpopulation of often-resistant cancer stem cells, aberrant vasculature, and noteworthy immune suppression. Current preclinical models and treatment strategies do not incorporate or address all these features satisfactorily. Herein, we describe a murine glioblastoma stem cell (GSC) model that recapitulates tumor heterogeneity, invasiveness, vascularity, and immunosuppressive microenvironment in syngeneic immunocompetent mice and should prove useful for a range of therapeutic studies. Using this model, we tested a genetically engineered oncolytic herpes simplex virus that is armed with an immunomodulatory cytokine, interleukin 12 (G47-mIL12). G47?-mIL12 infects and replicates similarly to its unarmed oncolytic herpes simplex virus counterpart in mouse 005 GSCs in vitro, whereas in vivo, it significantly enhances survival in syngeneic mice bearing intracerebral 005 tumors. Mechanistically, G47-mIL12 targets not only GSCs but also increases IFN-? release, inhibits angiogenesis, and reduces the number of regulatory T cells in the tumor. The increased efficacy is dependent upon T cells, but not natural killer cells. Taken together, our findings demonstrate that G47?-mIL12 provides a multifaceted approach to targeting GSCs, tumor microenvironment, and the immune system, with resultant therapeutic benefit in a stringent glioblastoma model.
