SEI science - Measuring the return  

Microsoft Academic Search

The ways of plausibly evaluating the scientific payoff of prospective mission architectures within the administrative framework of NASA's Space Exploration Initiative (SEI) are discussed. Attention is given to the expanding goals of a modestly implemented unmanned exploration focus, an aggressive implementation of that focus, and an equally aggressive implementation of a manned exploration priority, relative to the Apollo moon-landing program

SeisMac Seismogram Modeling  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Teacher will demonstrate the SeisMac program. Shake the laptop in the three different directions, showing how the different directions are recorded on the three different components. Adjust both the vertical and horizontal scales to show how the same motions can be represented differently. Setting the vertical scales on -1 to +1, tilt the laptop 90 deg in each of the three directions to demonstrate that the seismograms are records of acceleration (accelerograms). When the laptop is oriented normally, the baseline of the vertical component is 1 g and the two horizontal components have baselines of 0 g. However, when the laptop is tilted the vertical component goes to 0 g and one of the horizontal components will go to 1 g. Teacher will present real 3-component seismograms for actual data, and discuss the major seismic phases (P, S, Love, Rayleigh), showing the components they arrive on: P is primarily on vertical, S is primarily on radial and transverse, Love is primarily on the transverse, and the Rayleigh wave is primarily on both vertical and radial components. Students will take turns shaking the seismometer to try to directly replicate the actual seismograms. If two sets of seismograms are used, the teacher can talk about the differences between seismograms at stations that are nearer or further from the seismometer. Has minimal/no quantitative component Addresses student misconceptions

SeisMac 2.0  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

SeisMac is a free Mac OS X application that turns MacBook or MacBook Pro laptops into seismographs. It uses the Sudden Motion Sensor (accelerometer) that these machines are equipped with to create and display real-time, three-axis acceleration graphs (seismograms). The resizable, real-time scrolling display lets students see the seismic waves from tapping their toes on the floor, lay the laptop on their chests to see their heartbeats, or see seismic waves from real earthquakes. The software allows users to pause the display to study an event; scroll back in time to see older data; enlarge or contract the graph, both vertically and horizontally; and copy, print or save the screen. Time labels tell exactly when an event occurred, the sampling rate can be adjusted, and acceleration data can be smoothed. The site features a link to download the software and a link to help files for installing and using it.

Idiopathic fistula-in-ano  

PubMed Central

Fistula-in-ano is the most common form of perineal sepsis. Typically, a fistula includes an internal opening, a track, and an external opening. The external opening might acutely appear following infection and/or an abscess, or more insiduously in a chronic manner. Management includes control of infection, assessment of the fistulous track in relation to the anal sphincter muscle, and finally, definitive treatment of the fistula. Fistulotomy was the most commonly used mode of management, but concerns about post-fistulotomy incontinence prompted the use of sphincter preserving techniques such as advancement flaps, fibrin glue, collagen fistula plug, ligation of the intersphincteric fistula track, and stem cells. Many descriptive and comparative studies have evaluated these different techniques with variable outcomes. The lack of consistent results, level I evidence, or long-term follow-up, as well as the heterogeneity of fistula pathology has prevented a definitive treatment algorithm. This article will review the most commonly available modalities and techniques for managing idiopathic fistula-in-ano.

Ano1 as a regulator of proliferation.  

PubMed

Ano1 is a recently discovered Ca(2+)-activated Cl(-) channel expressed on interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) that has been implicated in slow-wave activity in the gut. However, Ano1 is expressed on all classes of ICC, even those that do not contribute to generation of the slow wave, suggesting that Ano1 may have an alternate function in these cells. Ano1 is also highly expressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Mice lacking Ano1 had fewer proliferating ICC in whole mount preparations and in culture, raising the possibility that Ano1 is involved in proliferation. Cl(-) channel blockers decreased proliferation in cells expressing Ano1, including primary cultures of ICC and in the pancreatic cancer-derived cell line, CFPAC-1. Cl(-) channel blockers had a reduced effect on Ano1(-/-) cultures, confirming that the blockers are acting on Ano1. Ki67 immunoreactivity, 5-ethynyl-2'-deoxyuridine incorporation, and cell-cycle analysis of cells grown in low-Cl(-) media showed fewer proliferating cells than in cultures grown in regular medium. We confirmed that mice lacking Ano1 had less phosphorylated retinoblastoma protein compared with controls. These data led us to conclude that Ano1 regulates proliferation at the G(1)/S transition of the cell cycle and may play a role in tumorigenesis. PMID:21940901

MatSeis developer's guide:version 1.0.  

SciTech Connect

This guide is intended to enable researchers working with seismic data, but lacking backgrounds in computer science and programming, to develop seismic algorithms using the MATLAB-based MatSeis software. Specifically, it presents a series of step-by-step instructions to write four specific functions of increasing complexity, while simultaneously explaining the notation, syntax, and general program design of the functions being written. The ultimate goal is that that the user can use this guide as a jumping off point from which he or she can write new functions that are compatible with and expand the capabilities of the current MatSeis software that has been developed as part of the Ground-based Nuclear Explosion Monitoring Research and Engineering (GNEMRE) program at Sandia National Laboratories.

MatSeis: A Seismic toolbox for MATLAB  

SciTech Connect

To support the signal processing and data visualization needs of CTBT related projects at SNL, a MATLAB based GUI was developed. This program is known as MatSeis. MatSeis was developed quickly using the available MATLAB functionality. It provides a time-distance profile plot integrating origin, waveform, travel-time, and arrival data. Graphical plot controls, data manipulation, and signal processing functions provide a user friendly seismic analysis package. In addition, the full power of MATLAB (the premier tool for general numeric processing and visualization) is available for prototyping new functions by end users. This package is being made available to the seismic community in the hope that it will aid CTBT research and will facilitate cooperative signal processing development. 2 refs., 5 figs.

The VBB SEIS experiment of InSight  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

SEIS is the core payload of InSight, one of the three missions selected for competitive phase A in the frame of the 2010 Discovery AO. It aims at providing unique observation of the interior structure of Mars and to monitor seismic activity of Mars. SEIS will provide the first seismic model from another planet than Earth. SEIS is an hybrid seismometer composed of 3 SPs and 3 VBBs axes providing ground motion measurement from Dc to 50Hz. A leveling system will ensure the coupling between the ground and the sensors as well as the horizontality of the VBB sphere. This assembly will be deployed on the ground of Mars and will be shielded by a strong thermal insulation and a wind shield. The 24 bits low noise acquisition electronics will remain in the warm electronic box of the lander with the sensors feedback and leveling system electronics. The VBB sphere enclosed three single axis sensors. Those sensors are based on an inverted leaf spring pendulum, which convert ground acceleration into mobile mass displacement. A capacitive displacement sensor monitors this mass displacement to provide a measurement. A force feedback allows transfer function and sensitivity tuning. The VBB sensor has a very strong heritage from previous project and benefits from recent work to improve its performances. Both the mechanical design and the displacement sensors have optimized to improve performances while reducing technological risk and keeping a high TRL. From those development a self-noise well below 10 ^{-9} m.s ^{-2}/sqrt Hz is expected. Environmental sensitivity of SEIS has been minimized by the design of a very efficient wind and thermal shield. Remaining noise is expected to be very close to the VBB self-noise. Associated sources and budget will be discussed. If InSight is selected to fly in 2016, this experiment will provide very high quality seismic signal measurement with a wider bandwidth, higher sensitivity and lower noise than previous Mars seismometer (Viking and Optimism/Mars 96).

Detection of seg, seh, and sei genes in Staphylococcus aureus isolates and determination of the enterotoxin productivities of S. aureus isolates Harboring seg, seh, or sei genes.  

PubMed

To investigate the distribution of staphylococcal enterotoxin (SE) A to I (SEA to SEI) genes (sea to sei) in Staphylococcus aureus, 146 isolates obtained in Japan from humans involved in and samples from food poisoning outbreaks, healthy humans, cows with mastitis, and bovine raw milk were analyzed by multiplex PCR. One hundred thirteen (77.4%) S. aureus isolates were found to be positive for one or more se genes. The se genotype was classified into 14 genotypes. seg and sei coexisted in the same S. aureus strain. The newly developed sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay showed that most seh-harboring S. aureus isolates were able to produce a significant amount of SEH. However, most of the S. aureus isolates harboring seg and about 60% of the isolates harboring sei did not produce a detectable level of SEG or SEI, while reverse transcription-PCR analysis proved that the mRNAs of SEG and SEI were transcribed in S. aureus strains harboring seg and sei genes. These results suggest the importance of quantitative assessment of SEG and SEI production in foods in order to clarify the relationship between these new SEs and food poisoning. PMID:11880405

Ground test facility for SEI nuclear rocket engines  

SciTech Connect

Nuclear Thermal Propulsion (NTP) has been identified as a critical technology in support of the NASA Space Exploration Initiative (SEI). In order to safely develop a reliable, reusable, long-lived flight engine, facilities are required that will support ground tests to qualify the nuclear rocket engine design. Initial nuclear fuel element testing will need to be performed in a facility that supports a realistic thermal and neutronic environment in which the fuel elements will operate at a fraction of the power of a flight weight reactor/engine. Ground testing of nuclear rocket engines is not new. New restrictions mandated by the National Environmental Protection Act of 1970, however, now require major changes to be made in the manner in which reactor engines are now tested. These new restrictions now preclude the types of nuclear rocket engine tests that were performed in the past from being done today. A major attribute of a safely operating ground test facility is its ability to prevent fission products from being released in appreciable amounts to the environment. Details of the intricacies and complications involved with the design of a fuel element ground test facility are presented in this report with a strong emphasis on safety and economy.

Solid state NMR study of SEI formation in lithium ion batteries  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Recently, rechargeable lithium ion batteries, which offer high energy density and long cycle life, are in great demand as power sources for our mobile electronic society. The formation of a solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) on the surface of electrodes in lithium ion batteries plays an essential role in their performance. This thesis presents solid state NMR and MAS NMR results on the SEI, which contribute to our understanding of SEI formation on both cathodes and anodes. This thesis is organized as following: Chapter 1 surveys the history of batteries and the challenges to further development of the lithium ion battery. Fundamental aspects and SEI formation mechanisms are also included in Chapter l. Chapter 2 deals with the principles and experimental techniques of solid state NMR. Chapter 3 presents studies of SEI formation on anode and cathode in lithium ion batteries using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and NMR. The results provide EIS and NMR evidence that cells containing electrolytes with high EC content display less irreversible capacity after high temperature storage. The irreversible capacity is attributed to SEI growth on electrode surfaces. NMR results on cathodes, on the other hand, imply that the presence of Ni in the cathode may reduce cell performance due to the oxidation of Ni 3+ to Ni4+. Our simulations show that a lower EC/DMC ratio is associated with a smaller SEI intensity for the cathode and higher intensity for the anode. Chapter 4 discusses the effect of temperature on SEI formation on anodes and cathodes. NMR measurements show that MCMB graphite based anodes exhibit high stability no chemical shift is evident over a wide temperature range. On cathodes, however, NMR does reveal changes in SEI intensity as a function of temperature. These changes are believed to be the result of decomposition of the SEI. Evidently, then, changes in the performance of the cell as a factor of temperature are, at least in part, due to changes in the SEI with temperature. In Chapter 5 we report on the use of NMR to study the effect of electrolyte/solvent and electrode structure on SEI formation. The intensity of the SEI in a cell containing LiBOB electrolyte with EC and DEC is greater than that in a cell with LiPF6 electrolyte with EC and DMC. This implies that the cell containing LiBOB electrolyte with EC and DEC is more stable. From the analysis of NMR of the cathode, it was found that it is easier to form SEI in layered structure cathode than in a spinel structure, suggesting that spinel structure materials may be better choices as cathode in lithium ion batteries. Evidently, then, the choice of electrolyte/solvent materials and electrode materials are key factors in determining the performance of lithium ion batteries.

Long distance passive localization of vocalizing sei whales using an acoustic normal mode approach.  

PubMed

During a 2 day period in mid-September 2006, more than 200, unconfirmed but identifiable, sei whale (Balaenoptera borealis) calls were collected as incidental data during a multidisciplinary oceanography and acoustics experiment on the shelf off New Jersey. Using a combined vertical and horizontal acoustic receiving array, sei whale movements were tracked over long distances (up to tens of kilometers) using a normal mode back propagation technique. This approach uses low-frequency, broadband passive sei whale call receptions from a single-station, two-dimensional hydrophone array to perform long distance localization and tracking by exploiting the dispersive nature of propagating normal modes in a shallow water environment. The back propagation approach is examined for accuracy and application to tracking the sei whale vocalizations identified in the vertical and horizontal array signals. This passive whale tracking, combined with the intensive oceanography measurements performed during the experiment, was also used to examine sei whale movements in relation to oceanographic features observed in this region.

Normal Proliferation and Tumorigenesis but Impaired Pancreatic Function in Mice Lacking the Cell Cycle Regulator Sei1  

PubMed Central

Sei1 is a positive regulator of proliferation that promotes the assembly of Cdk4-cyclin D complexes and enhances the transcriptional activity of E2f1. The potential oncogenic role of Sei1 is further suggested by its overexpression in various types of human cancers. To study the role of Sei1, we have generated a mouse line deficient for this gene. Sei1-null fibroblasts did not show abnormalities regarding proliferation or susceptibility to neoplastic transformation, nor did we observe defects on Cdk4 complexes or E2f activity. Sei1-null mice were viable, did not present overt pathologies, had a normal lifespan, and had a normal susceptibility to spontaneous and chemically-induced cancer. Pancreatic insulin-producing cells are known to be particularly sensitive to Cdk4-cyclin D and E2f activities, and we have observed that Sei1 is highly expressed in pancreatic islets compared to other tissues. Interestingly, Sei1-null mice present lower number of islets, decreased ?-cell area, impaired insulin secretion, and glucose intolerance. These defects were associated to nuclear accumulation of the cell-cycle inhibitors p21Cip1 and p27Kip1 in islet cells. We conclude that Sei1 plays an important role in pancreatic ?-cells, which supports a functional link between Sei1 and the core cell cycle regulators specifically in the context of the pancreas.

High resolution (SE-I) scanning electron microscopy features of primate cerebellar cortex.  

PubMed

This paper provides an exploration into the outer and inner surfaces of primate cerebellar neurons using secondary electron-I (SE-I) topographic contrast. SE-I enriched, chromium coated, cryofractured cerebellum staged within the condenser/objective lens stage of SEMs, equipped with high brightness LaB6 and field emission emitter, generated quality images of intact and fractured nerve cells studied at intermediate and high magnifications. Granule and Golgi cell surfaces revealed smooth, accurately delineated profiles of the true cell surface features, which lacked the SE-III dominated brilliance of conventional gold or gold-palladium decorated images. Fractured non synaptic segments of parallel fibers in the molecular layer showed interconnected anastomotic networks of ER tubules, vesicles and cisterns, whereas cross fractured presynaptic "en passant" endings of these fibers exhibited spheroidal synaptic vesicles and SE-I edge brightness contrast delineated their limiting plasma membranes. Parallel fiber fractured synaptic endings showed a homogeneous extravesicular material surrounding the synaptic vesicles. The neuroglial cytoplasm ensheathing nerve processes exhibited a smooth discontinuous surface. The high mass density surface of the myelin sheath showed a mixed population of globular structures, 10-30 nm, corresponding to protein and phospholipid microdomains. PMID:7873989

Electronic structure and defect properties of Tl6SeI4: Density functional calculations  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We report density functional calculations of electronic structure, phase diagram, and dielectric, optical, and defect properties of Tl6SeI4. We discuss how electronic structure and defect properties affect resistivity and carrier mobility-lifetime (??) products in Tl6SeI4. We find large Born effective charges due to covalency involving Tl-6p states. High Born charges generally enhance the static dielectric constant. This provides a mechanism for effective screening of charged defects and impurities. We find that high resistivity can be obtained under near-stoichiometric growth conditions via Fermi level pinning near the middle of the band gap by shallow donors and acceptors, as opposed to deep traps that can give high resistivity, but at the expense of short carrier drift lengths. Defect calculations also reveal the presence of deep native donors that may cause electron trapping. The experimentally observed good ?? products may be explained by a combination of small effective masses and effective screening of charged defects. High resistivity and good ?? products make Tl6SeI4 a promising room-temperature radiation detector material. We also show the calculated defect diffusion barriers, which affect defect migration under external bias in a detector.

Thirty-six field strains were classified as carrier of seg, 22 of sei gene and 23 were positive for sej gene. None of the 104 investigated ruminant S. aureus strains carried the seh gene. Thirty-seven of these S. aureus strains showed a combination of genes encoding enterotoxin types SEA to SEE or toxic shock syndrome toxin 1 (TSST 1). Thirteen cultures harboured only one, 28 two, 12 three and 8 four enterotoxin genes. Among the 61 S. aureus field strains 14 (23.0%) were positive for the genes encoding SEJ and SED and 10 (16.4%) isolates for those encoding SEG and SEI. Isolates harbouring the sed/sej genes were further characterized by macrorestriction analysis and pulsed-field-gelelectrophoresis (Pfge). Macrorestriction analysis revealed six patterns. Nine of these14 S. aureus isolates (64.3%) exhibited two patterns with a high degree of relationship (>80%). PMID:15916869

The Installation of Satellite Modems on SEIS-UK Supported Remote Seismic Deployments  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

SEIS-UK, as the UK's NERC funded national seismic equipment facility, is frequently involved in large, often remote, temporary seismic networks (running for up to 2 years). Up till now all these deployments have been managed solely by on-site maintenance but now SEIS-UK is investing in a number of satellite modems. The Michrosat 2400 OEM Modems, provided by Wireless Innovations Ltd, will be integrated within Guralp DCM data-logger units and will be used to provide regular state-of-health reports from remote networks. They will also provide the user the facility to communicate with the deployed systems, apply configuration changes and request system re-boots. This should lead to less instrument down-time and allow for more focussed site visits and thus, hopefully, reduce the cost (and servicing time) of remote installations. The Michrosat Modems are relatively low-powered and draw a maximum current of 2.5A (at 4.4v) for a few microseconds when initialising a call, dropping to bursts of approximately 1A when transmitting. This makes them ideally suited to temporary deployments relying on solar charged battery power. We will present examples of the configuration and typical deployment of the modems and the types of data transmitted.

[Primitive ano-rectal neuralgia. Atypical cases (author's transl)].  

PubMed

In a new statistic concerning 245 cases of primary ano-rectal neuralgia, it can be seen that the schematic classical classification derived from Thaysen, Theile, and Bensaude must be maintained (proctalgia fugax: 45 cases; coccygodynia: 44 cases; ano-rectal neuralgia: 95 cases), partially integrating unusual cases of pruritus ani. Among the 4 principle etiologies, while not underestimating the neuropsychical and intestinal factors (constipation, laxatives), the importance of two other factors must be underlined (the urogenital factor, and particularly, the role of menopause, and important pelvic operations (33 cases) often overestimated; rachidian factors: tendomyositis (Garrigues), pseudoradicular factor. The interest of this study is to show that besides these typical cases (81,7%), a number of atypical cases exist, which have often been under-estimated. These cases can be classified in intermediary (4%), associated (10%), alternating (3,3%) cases, in the course of which the different syndromes replace each other or seem superposed. It must be underlined that the notion of these primitive ano-rectal neuralgias must be inserted in the much larger class of perineal urinary, gynecological or bone and ligament neuralgias. The classification remains opened. An etiopathogenical treatment must be installed, that rejects all regional or surgical aggressive acts when not absolutely necessary, and underlines the importance of massage, internal (levator ani), or external (Maigne's technique, attentive and repeated sessions of rachidian massage).U PMID:6280309

The NSPWG developed a top- level policy to provide the guiding principles for the development and implementation of the nuclear propulsion safety program and the development of Safety Functional Requirements. In addition the NSPWG reviewed safety issues for nuclear propulsion and recommended top-level safety requirements and guidelines to address these issues. Safety requirements were developed for reactor start-up, inadvertent criticality, radiological release and exposure, disposal, entry, and safeguards. Guidelines were recommended for risk/reliability, operational safety, flight trajectory and mission abort, space debris and meteoroids, and ground test safety. In this paper the specific requirements and guidelines will be discussed.

Oncogenic function of p34SEI-1 via NEDD4?1?mediated PTEN ubiquitination/degradation and activation of the PI3K/AKT pathway.  

PubMed

A 34-KD protein encoded by the SEI-1 gene (p34SEI?1), is a relatively recently discovered oncoprotein that has multiple important biological functions. Our data show that p34SEI-1 enhances cancer cell survival and promotes tumorigenesis by downregulating the tumor suppressor PTEN, a negative regulator of the PI3K/AKT signaling pathway, and therefore activating the PI3K/AKT signaling pathway. In this process, p34SEI-1 positively affects NEDD4-1 gene expression both at the transcriptional and protein levels. Furthermore, the expression levels of p34SEI-1 and NEDD4-1 were found to be coordinated in tumor tissues obtained from patients with breast cancer. We also show that p34SEI-1 affects the subcellular localization of PTEN. PMID:23970032

A Rapid Deployment Seismological network (RaDeSeis) for real time aftershock studies  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The understanding of earthquake faulting process is one of the main factors that contribute to earthquake damage. One of the most valuable and essential tools for the understanding of faulting process in the analysis of aftershocks. The critical point for successful aftershock studies is the mobile seismological network that will deployed in order to provide the required data. The main problem that arise for these networks is how fast the recorded data are available to data centres in order to estimate the focal mechanisms, the source parameters estimation as well as to examine microseismic activity. The ideal situation is to have these data available in real time but this is limited by the different telemetry requirements for every individual installation. Based on the experience gained from several installations in Hellenic Seismological Network of Crete (HSNC) we propose a mobile network scheme (called RaDeSeis) capable of installed in a limited amount of time and provide real time seismological data. RaDeSeis is an hybrid network based on VSAT and WiFi communication links between seismological stations and data centre. The network is deployed in star topology where the central station is the communication hub at the same time. Dedicated point-to-point links between central station and border station established using WiFi links. Communication between central station and data centre is established by VSAT. With appropriate routing on central station the data centre is collecting, control and monitor all the stations from the area of interest in real time. In order to decrease the time needed for each installation a specific software (RaLiEs - Rapid Link Establishment) is originated for the quicker link establishment between border stations and central station (with an average distance of 40km LOS) as well as to data centre. By using this software each telecommunication installation needs less than half an hour to complete the necessary link adjustments.

Density functional study of the properties of Tl6SeI4 for radiation detection applications  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The extra compositional freedom available in ternary compounds allow flexibility to tune their electronic and structural properties compared to the binary counterparts. Indeed, the Tl-based ternary semiconductor Tl6SeI4 is a promising candidate for radiation detectors. It has a band gap (1.86 eV) that is intermediate between those of Tl2Se (0.6 eV) and TlI (2.75 eV) and suitable for room temperature detectors. However, the flexibility in ternary semiconductors may come at the expense of more channels for defect formation and more complex defect chemistry, which need to be studied in details. To better understand the properties of Tl6SeI4in relation to the radiation detection, we performed first-principles study of electronic structure, phase diagram, and dielectric, optical, and defect properties in Tl6SeI4.[1] We will discuss the properties of defects and their diffusion barriers in the context of resistivity and polarization phenomenon in Tl6SeI4.

Seismology on Mars with the SEIS/HUMBOLD experiment on the ExoMars Mission  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The ExoMars Seismometer will study the seismic activity of the Planet and frequency of meteorites impacts. These seismic events will be characterized by their approximate distance and azimuth, as well by their magnitude. The seismometer will also allow also to characterize shallow and deep interior of the planet, and especially the water environment as a function of depth in the deep subsurface, the crustal thickness of the landing site, the core size and possibly, if the seismic activity is between the middle and upper bound of present estimates, the mantle structure. The sensitivity and noise floor of the seismometers in the expected Martian environment are such that the detection of about 20 quakes with Ms magnitude from 4 to 5 and 10-20 impacts per year are expected for a mean model of seismic activity; our working hypothesis is based on the thermoelastic cooling of the lithosphere, which does not consider any tectonic activity possibly related to volcanoes. The first scientific objective of the seismic experiment will be the determination of the internal activity of the planet. Due to the relatively low magnitude, this objective will be achieved by monitoring the bandwidth of body waves and regional surface waves. We present in a separate paper the expected seismic activity on Mars and the perspectives of detection rate of the experiment, by taking into account attenuation and geometrical spreading. We focus in this paper on the way to use seismic data for constraining the interior of a planet when only one station is deployed. We therefore first show the sensitivity of differential travel times to interior structure and test the later with different Mars models published in the literature. We then present more elaborated seismic methods. For the crust determination, the first one is the receiver function method, successfully used on the Moon for the detection of seismic conversions at the base of the crust. On the Apollo data a relative error of 10Finally, we conclude with long period observations, in order to show the strategy for the determination of the deep interior: observation of normal modes between 5 mHz and 20 mHz will be possible with the SEIS instrument by stacking methods on quakes with a cumulative 1e18 Nm moment or by single record analysis of the greatest quakes. The observation of normal modes below 5 mHz, which are the most sensitive to the core size, will be more challenging and modes like 0S2 might remain below the instrument or station noise. An alternative for the determination of core size will be measurements of the solid tide amplitude by a surface sensor and the Love numbers. This measurement will be mainly limited by the temperature noise and will require a stack of a year-long time series. We however show that temperature observed on Pathfinder is compatible with an error in the core radius determination equal to about 60 km after a 180 sol stack. The SEIS experiment will therefore be crucial for our understanding of the Martian interior structure and its consequence on the long term habitability history of the planet.

Conditions required for detection of specimen-specific SE-I secondary electrons in an analytical SEM.  

PubMed

An analytical SEM equipped with an above-the-lens detector, an in-the-lens specimen stage and a high brightness LaB6 emitter was used to produce a specimen-specific, secondary electron-I (SE-I) signal for recording edge brightness contrast with high intensity on small particles at high magnification (200,000). The SE-I edge brightness contrast produced from 20-40 nm colloidal gold on silicon wafers was useful for estimating instrument resolution since the edge brightness is the sum of the SE-I signal range (approximately equal to 1 nm) and the beam diameter. LaB6 crystal saturation and gun conditions were determined in order to minimize the probe diameter at the first cross-over position. Ferritin particles also on the silicon wafers were imaged by adjustments of the gun bias voltage conditions. Establishment of these conditions was useful for high resolution SEM studies of appropriately coated bulk biological specimens. PMID:2746638

Production of cloned sei whale (Balaenoptera borealis) embryos by interspecies somatic cell nuclear transfer using enucleated pig oocytes.  

PubMed

In this study, we examined the feasibility of using subzonal cell injection with electrofusion for interspecies somatic cell nuclear transfer (iSCNT) to produce sei whale embryos and to improve their developmental capacity by investigating the effect of osmolarity and macromolecules in the culture medium on the in vitro developmental capacity. Hybrid embryos produced by the electrofusion of fetal whale fibroblasts with enucleated porcine oocytes were cultured in modified porcine zygote medium-3 to examine the effects of osmolarity and fetal serum on their in vitro developmental capacity. More than 66% of the whale somatic cells successfully fused with the porcine oocytes following electrofusion. A portion (60 approximately 81%) of the iSCNT whale embryos developed to the two- to four-cell stages, but no embryos were able to reach the blastocyst stage. This developmental arrest was not overcome by increasing the osmolarity of the medium to 360 mOsm or by the addition of fetal bovine or fetal whale serum. Our results demonstrate that sei whale-porcine hybrid embryos may be produced by SCNT using subzonal injection and electrofusion. The pig oocytes partly supported the remodeling and reprogramming of the sei whale somatic cell nuclei, but they were unable to support the development of iSCNT whale embryos to the blastocyst stage.

Conceptualizing ¬the Abstractions of Earthquakes Through an Instructional Sequence Using SeisMac and the Rapid Earthquake Viewer  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Newsworthy earthquakes provide an engaging hook for students in Earth science classes, particularly when discussing their effects on people and the landscape. However, engaging students in an analysis of earthquakes that extends beyond death and damage, is frequently hampered by the abstraction of recorded ground motion data in the form of raw seismograms and the inability of most students to personally relate to ground accelerations. To overcome these challenges, an educational sequence has been developed using two software tools: SeisMac by Daniel Griscom, and the Rapid Earthquake Viewer (REV) developed by the University of South Carolina in collaboration with IRIS and DLESE. This sequence presents a unique opportunity for Earth Science teachers to "create" foundational experiences for students as they construction a framework of understanding of abstract concepts. The first activity is designed to introduce the concept of a three-component seismogram and to directly address the very abstract nature of seismograms through a kinesthetic experience. Students first learn to take the pulse of their classroom through a guided exploration of SeisMac, which displays the output of the laptop's built-in Sudden Motion Sensor (a 3-component accelerometer). This exploration allows students to view a 3-component seismogram as they move or tap the laptop and encourages them to propose and carry out experiments to explain the meaning of the 3-component seismogram. Once completed students are then asked to apply this new knowledge to a real 3-component seismogram printed from REV. Next the activity guides students through the process of identifying P and S waves and using SeisMac to connect the physical motion of the laptop to the "wiggles" they see on the SeisMac display and then comparing those to the "wiggles" they see on their seismogram. At this point students are more fully prepared to engage in an S-P location exercise such as those included in many state standards because they have a physical sense of what the wiggles indicate. As a result students are better positioned to identify S and P arrivals within the complexity of real data available through REV rather than using the canned or artificial data normally associated with a location exercise. REV provides easy access to recent and noteworthy earthquake data via a simple Web interface. Earthquake locations and near-real time ground motion data are accessed via the IRIS Data Management System, and data are automatically processed and selected so that only events with "good" data are presented within REV. Once students have completed the learning sequence using SeisMac, they will be better able to relate the trace of a seismogram to the physical motion of the ground. This can then lead to better understanding of more advanced exercises including detecting the core and finding the Moho. Building on an understanding of the basics of a seismogram, SeisMac can next be used to help student further understand earthquakes by provide a kinesthetic experience to model how hard the Earth shakes during earthquakes. Through another guided exploration students discover that the SeisMac display is calibrated in units of acceleration and can be related to the Modified Mercalli scale. They then compare shaking during an earthquake via video clips and ground shaking maps from the USGS "Did you feel it" Web site to the shaking of personal objects and the laptop.

ANOs 3-7 in the anoctamin/Tmem16 Cl? channel family are intracellular proteins  

PubMed Central

Ca2+-activated Cl? channels (CaCCs) participate in numerous physiological functions such as neuronal excitability, sensory transduction, and transepithelial fluid transport. Recently, it was shown that heterologously expressed anoctamins ANO1 and ANO2 generate currents that resemble native CaCCs. The anoctamin family (also called Tmem16) consists of 10 members, but it is not known whether all members of the family are CaCCs. Expression of ANOs 3–7 in HEK293 cells did not generate Cl? currents activated by intracellular Ca2+, as determined by whole cell patch clamp electrophysiology. With the use of confocal imaging, only ANO1 and ANO2 traffic to the plasma membrane when expressed heterologously. Furthermore, endogenously expressed ANO7 in the human prostate is predominantly intracellular. We took a chimeric approach to identify regions critical for channel trafficking and function. However, none of the chimeras of ANO1 and ANO5/7 that we made trafficked to the plasma membrane. Our results suggest that intracellular anoctamins may be endoplasmic reticulum proteins, although it remains unknown whether these family members are CaCCs. Determining the role of anoctamin family members in ion transport will be critical to understanding their functions in physiology and disease.

Dynamic modulation of ANO1/TMEM16A HCO3? permeability by Ca2+/calmodulin  

PubMed Central

Anoctamin 1 (ANO1)/transmembrane protein 16A (TMEM16A) is a calcium-activated anion channel that may play a role in HCO3? secretion in epithelial cells. Here, we report that the anion selectivity of ANO1 is dynamically regulated by the Ca2+/calmodulin complex. Whole-cell current measurements in HEK 293T cells indicated that ANO1 becomes highly permeable to HCO3? at high [Ca2+]i. Interestingly, this result was not observed in excised patches, indicating the involvement of cytosolic factors in this process. Further studies revealed that the direct association between ANO1 and calmodulin at high [Ca2+]i is responsible for changes in anion permeability. Calmodulin physically interacted with ANO1 in a [Ca2+]i-dependent manner, and addition of recombinant calmodulin to the cytosolic side of excised patches reversibly increased PHCO3/PCl. In addition, the high [Ca2+]i-induced increase in HCO3? permeability was reproduced in mouse submandibular gland acinar cells, in which ANO1 plays a critical role in fluid secretion. These results indicate that the HCO3? permeability of ANO1 can be dynamically modulated and that ANO1 may play an important role in cellular HCO3? transport, especially in transepithelial HCO3? secretion.

Results from the NEAREST-SEIS deep seismic cruise across the Gulf of Cadiz accretionary wedge  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Gulf of Cadiz lies offshore of Southwest Iberia and Northwest Morocco where the famous Lisbon earthquake and tsunami struck in 1755. Here the plate boundary between Africa and Eurasia is complex, marked by a broad region of deformation spanning about 200 km in a north-south direction. Structurally, the Gulf of Cadiz is the presence of a thick tectonically deformed sedimentary wedge, interpreted as an accretionary wedge formed by the SW migration of the Rif-Betic block. Numerous marine geophysical surveys performed here recently, including multi-beam bathymetry and multi-channel seismics (MCS) help constrain the seafloor morphology and shallow crustal structure. MCS data reveal sediment thicknesses in the central Gulf of Cadiz (beneath the accretionary wedge) reaching a maximum of 12-13 km. Past wide-angle seismic surveys had difficulty penetrating below this thick sedimentary body. During the NEAREST-SEIS cruise on the B/O Hesperides (Nov. 2008), two wide-angle seismic lines were acquired in the Gulf of Cadiz area using a source composed of seven 1500liter Bolt airguns (4520 in3), shot at 90 s intervals. 19 ocean bottom seismometers (OBS) from Ifremer and the University of Brest and 17 OBS from UTM-CSIC, Barcelona were deployed during the survey. The shorter profile, P2 trending NNE-SSW, was a line roughly perpendicular to the South Portuguese margin (inner part of the Gulf), crossing from Portimao Canyon, the frontal portion of the accretionary wedge, where the sedimentary cover is relatively thin. The main purpose was to determine the location of the transition between continental and oceanic crust. 15 OBS were deployed along this line with a ~7 nm spacing, which was extended by landstations (onshore in S. Portugal). The data generally show clear sedimentary refracted phases, deeper intracrustal phases, some arrivals refracted in the upper mantle and reflections at the boundary between the crust and the mantle (PmP). A layer-stripping modelling of the corresponding data is performed using a joint refraction/reflection traveltime tomography approach (1st arrivals and PmP phase are inverted jointly), following a Monte-Carlo type analysis. Information given by coincident MCS data is used to discuss and validate our velocity reconstructions. The Southern part of the model (south of 36.25° N) is characterized by thin crust, ~7 km thick, and a nearly flat Moho around 16 km depth. According to the Monte-Carlo simulation, most of the velocity model and Moho depth are very well constrained. This crust is interpreted as oceanic, based on its thickness and velocities. Preliminary modelling indicates a velocity of 7.5 km/s below the Moho, increasing to 8 km/s in a 4 km thick transition layer. The northern part of the model shows a clear and abrupt transition to a thick continental crust, Moho depth at ˜28 km at 36.36° N, compatible thicknesses obtained by landbased refraction seismics. The average crustal velocity here is ˜6.5 km/s over a ˜23 km maximum thickness and the velocity gradient is smooth, consistent with continental crust. The oceanic to continental transition occurs over a ˜30 km distance.

Distributed Computing for Seismic Data Retrieval using FISSURES DHI Client FMI Implimented from MatSeis 1.9  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Three software development efforts have recently combined to allow a seamless method for obtaining data from the IRIS DMC over the Internet and analyzing it in MATLAB. During the past few years IRIS has constructed the initial framework and definitions for FISSURES servers and Data Handling Interface (DHI) clients. FISSURES uses the distributed computing language Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA), which allows software systems to work across the Internet in a platform independent and computer-language neutral manner. Starting from the FISSURES object model three seismic services have been defined: event, network and seismogram. From these three object types a DHI client is used to access information through FISSURES services. Using the University of Washington developed FISSURES-Matlab-Interface (FMI) DHI client, all three FISSURES objects can be accessed via the Internet and downloaded into local MATLAB objects, allowing access to earthquake event catalogs, seismograms, network and instrument information. The DHI client FMI can be implemented from MatSeis. MatSeis, developed at Sandia National Laboratory, is a MATLAB based, Graphical User Interface (GUI) controlled software package with seismic data visualization, signal processing, and database importing and exporting capabilities, to list just a few. In this poster, we will discuss the seismic data retrieval currently prototyped for the IRIS DMC, as well as the planned connections to the Northern California Earthquake Data Center (NCEDC), Southern California Earthquake Data Center (SCEDC), and South Carolina Earth Physics Project (SCEPP) data center.

Enhanced Expression of ANO1 in Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma Causes Cell Migration and Correlates with Poor Prognosis  

PubMed Central

Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) has the potential for early metastasis and is associated with poor survival. Ano1 (Dog1) is an established and sensitive marker for the diagnosis of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST) and has recently been identified as a Ca2+ activated Cl? channel. Although the ANO1 gene is located on the 11q13 locus, a region which is known to be amplified in different types of human carcinomas, a detailed analysis of Ano1 amplification and expression in HNSCC has not been performed. It is thus still unclear how Ano1 contributes to malignancy in HNSCC. We analyzed genomic amplification of the 11q13 locus and Ano1 together with Ano1-protein expression in a large collection of HNSCC samples. We detected a highly significant correlation between amplification and expression of Ano1 and showed that HNSCC patients with Ano1 protein expression have a poor overall survival. We further analyzed the expression of the Ano1 protein in more than 4?000 human samples from 80 different tumor types and 76 normal tissue types and detected that besides HNSCC and GISTs, Ano1 was rarely expressed in other tumor samples or healthy human tissues. In HNSCC cell lines, expression of Ano1 caused Ca2+ activated Cl? currents, which induced cell motility and cell migration in wound healing and in real time migration assays, respectively. In contrast, knockdown of Ano1 did not affect intracellular Ca2+ signaling and surprisingly did not reduce cell proliferation in BHY cells. Further, expression and activity of Ano1 strongly correlated with the ability of HNSCC cells to regulate their volume. Thus, poor survival in HNSCC patients is correlated with the presence of Ano1. Our results further suggest that Ano1 facilitates regulation of the cell volume and causes cell migration, which both can contribute to metastatic progression in HNSCC.

Implementation of the Virtual Seismologist Early Warning Algorithm within the SeisComP3 Earthquake Processing System  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Virtual Seismologist (VS) earthquake early warning (EEW) methodology is a Bayesian approach to EEW, wherein the most probable source estimate at any given time is a combination of contributions from a likelihood function that evolves in response to incoming data from the on-going earthquake, and selected prior information, which can include factors such as network topology, the Gutenberg-Richter relationship or previously observed seismicity. The VS algorithm, implemented by the Swiss Seismological Service (SED) at ETH Zurich, is a fundamental component of the California Integrated Seismic Network (CISN) ShakeAlert system, and has been thoroughly tested in real-time the Southern California Seismic Network since July 2008, and at the Northern California Seismic Network since February 2009. SeisComP3 (SC3) is a fully featured automated real-time earthquake monitoring software developed by GeoForschungZentrum Potsdam in collaboration with commercial partner, gempa GmbH. It is becoming a community standard software for earthquake detection and waveform processing for regional and global networks across the globe, including at the SED. As part of efforts in the development of real-time seismology tools supported by the Network of European Research Infrastructures for Earthquake Risk Assessment and Mitigation (NERA), the VS EEW algorithm has been implemented within the SeisComP3 framework. We discuss the software design and development, as well as testing and performance evaluation on real-time and archived waveform data from the SED. The "VS in SC3" effort facilitates the seamless integration of real-time EEW within standard network processing at SED, as well as the distribution, installation, and real-time testing of the VS codes at various European networks, in particular, real-time test sites at Naples, Istanbul, Patras, and Iceland planned as part of FP7 project REAKT "Strategies and Tools for Real-Time Earthquake Risk Mitigation".

An Artificial SEI Enables the Use of A LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 5 V Cathode with Conventional Electrolytes  

SciTech Connect

LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 spinel is considered one of the most promising cathodes for advanced lithium ion batteries. However, the operation potential of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4, ~4.75 V, is beyond the high voltage limit of the state-of-art electrolyte, ~4.3 V. Here, using thin films of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 as a model material, we show evidence that an artificial solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) enables the use of this 5 V cathode with conventional carbonate electrolytes. A thin coating of Lipon (lithium phosphorus oxynitride) as an artificial SEI on LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 could remedy the decomposition of the electrolyte. The thickness of the Lipon artificial SEI is optimized by balancing the protection and additional resistance. The strategy of artificial SEI on cathodes is expected to enable the wide application of other high voltage cathodes for lithium ion batteries.

MineSeis -- A MATLAB GUI program to calculate synthetic seismograms from a linear, multi-shot blast source model  

SciTech Connect

Modeling ground motions from multi-shot, delay-fired mining blasts is important to the understanding of their source characteristics such as spectrum modulation. MineSeis is a MATLAB{reg_sign} (a computer language) Graphical User Interface (GUI) program developed for the effective modeling of these multi-shot mining explosions. The program provides a convenient and interactive tool for modeling studies. Multi-shot, delay-fired mining blasts are modeled as the time-delayed linear superposition of identical single shot sources in the program. These single shots are in turn modeled as the combination of an isotropic explosion source and a spall source. Mueller and Murphy`s (1971) model for underground nuclear explosions is used as the explosion source model. A modification of Anandakrishnan et al.`s (1997) spall model is developed as the spall source model. Delays both due to the delay-firing and due to the single-shot location differences are taken into account in calculating the time delays of the superposition. Both synthetic and observed single-shot seismograms can be used to construct the superpositions. The program uses MATLAB GUI for input and output to facilitate user interaction with the program. With user provided source and path parameters, the program calculates and displays the source time functions, the single shot synthetic seismograms and the superimposed synthetic seismograms. In addition, the program provides tools so that the user can manipulate the results, such as filtering, zooming and creating hard copies.

ANO5 mutations in the Dutch limb girdle muscular dystrophy population.  

PubMed

A Dutch cohort of 105 limb girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) patients were subject to subsequent genetic investigations. In half the families a causative mutation was found. Recently mutations were identified in ANO5 causing LGMD2L and Miyoshi-like myopathy (MMD3), but could also be found in patients with hyperCKemia only. Therefore, we analysed the index cases of the remaining 31 as yet undiagnosed families from our previously described cohort of LGMD patients for the presence of ANO5 mutations. Detailed history and neurological examination were available for all patients. Serum creatine kinase (CK) activity, skeletal muscle computed tomography (CT) and cardiological investigations were performed. Mutations in ANO5 were found in 16% of the families: 11 index patients and two sibs, eight males and five females. The founder mutation c.191dupA was present in 8 out of 13 patients. Ten different pathogenic mutations were identified of which seven were novel: five missense and two splice site mutations. The age of these patients ranged from 26 to 69 years and the age of onset varied from 21 to 57 years. Symptoms at onset were related to proximal leg weakness. The weakness was slowly progressive. Calf hypertrophy was present in three patients. Males were more severely affected than females. Serum CK activity was highly elevated in the early stage of disease and moderately increased in later stages. Muscle biopsy showed predominantly dystrophic changes. One patient had hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, two others had intraventricular septum thickening. PMID:23607914

Detection of enterotoxin genes seg, seh, sei, and sej and of a novel aroA genotype in Jordanian clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus.  

PubMed

The presence of staphylococcal enterotoxin (SE) genes (seg, seh, sei, and sej) and the correlation of their prevalence with the genotypes were studied in 100 clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of SE genes indicated that 39% of the isolates were enterotoxigenic. Thirty-seven percent of the total isolates were seg positive, whereas 24% and 4% were sei and seh positive, respectively. All isolates containing sei were positive for seg, whereas sej gene was not detected. Genotyping by PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of the aroA gene revealed that 39% of the isolates were type A and 11% were type B, and 50% displayed a novel (N) genotype. The presence of the enterotoxin genes was independent (P < 0.05) of the genotypes of the tested S. aureus isolates. This study has demonstrated that the seg was the most dominant enterotoxin gene and that the enterotoxigenic Jordanian S. aureus isolates belong to different genotypes, and N genotype was predominant.

Audit of topical glyceryl trinitrate for treatment of fissure-in-ano.  

PubMed Central

PURPOSE: To clarify the clinical role of topical glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) in the management of anal fissures. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty-six consecutive patients with fissure-in-ano attending a colorectal clinic from April 1997 to May 1998 included 16 acute and 40 chronic anal fissures. Patients were instructed to apply 0.2% 0.5 g of GTN to the painful area of the anus. Patients were followed-up in the clinic at 4, 8 and 12 weeks, and by telephone interviews at a median follow up of 10 months. RESULTS: Ten of 16 acute fissures (63%) were healed by 4 weeks and 13 (81%) by 8 weeks. Thirteen of 40 chronic fissures (33%) were healed by 8 weeks and 20 (50%) by 12 weeks. Seventeen patients (30%) underwent lateral sphincterotomy and all healed. There were five recurrences within 3 months of treatment with GTN. Thirty-four (61%) suffered from headaches, eight being severe headaches. None of the patients developed incontinence with GTN or lateral sphincterotomy. CONCLUSIONS: Treatment of fissure-in-ano using GTN ointment was effective in up to 50% of patients with chronic anal fissure, and has the benefit of being repeatable if the fissure recurs. Patients should be aware that treatment is likely to take some months to be effective and is associated with significant side effects in up to 15% of patients.

SM1.3 Seismic Centers Data Acquisition: an introduction to Antelope, EarthWorm, SeisComP and their usage around the world  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Many medium to big size seismic data centers around the world are facing the same question: which software to use to acquire seismic data in real-time? A home-made or a commercial one? Both choices have pros and cons. The in-house development of software usually requires an increased investment in human resources rather than a financial investment. However, the advantage of fully accomplishing your own needs could be put in danger when the software engineer quits the job! Commercial software offers the advantage of being maintained, but it may require both a considerable financial investment and training. The main seismic software data acquisition suites available nowadays are the public domain SeisComP and EarthWorm packages and the commercial package Antelope. Nanometrics, Guralp and RefTek also provide seismic data acquisition software, but they are mainly intended for single station/network acquisition. Antelope is a software package for real-time acquisition and processing of seismic network data, with its roots in the academic seismological community. The software is developed by Boulder Real Time Technology (BRTT) and commercialized by Kinemetrics. It is used by IRIS affiliates for off-line data processing and it is the main acquisition tool for the USArray program and data centers in Europe like the ORFEUS Data Center, OGS (Italy), ZAMG (Austria), ARSO (Slovenia) and GFU (Czech Republic). SeisComP was originally developed for the GEOFON global network to provide a system for data acquisition, data exchange (SeedLink protocol) and automatic processing. It has evolved into to a widely distributed, networked seismographic system for data acquisition and real-time data exchange over Internet and is supported by ORFEUS as the standard seismic data acquisition tool in Europe. SeisComP3 is the next generation of the software and was developed for the German Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System (GITEWS). SeisComP is licensed by GFZ (free of charge) and maintained by a private company (GEMPA). EarthWorm was originally developed by United States Geological Survey (USGS) to exchange data with the Canadian seismologists. Its is now used by several institution around the world. It is maintained and developed by a commercial software house, ISTI.

First results from the NEAREST-SEIS deep seismic cruise across the Gulf of Cadiz accretionary wedge  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Gulf of Cadiz lies offshore of Southwest Iberia and Northwest Morocco, bounded to the West by the Azores-Gibraltar transform and to the East by the Betic-Rif mountain belt. The region is famous for the great 1755 Lisbon earthquake and tsunami. Here the plate boundary between Africa and Eurasia is complex, marked by a broad region of deformation spanning about 200 km in a north-south direction. One of the most striking structures characterizing the Gulf of Cadiz is the presence of a thick tectonically deformed sedimentary wedge, which is interpreted as an accretionary wedge formed by the W to SW migration of the Rif-Betic block. Two types of geodynamic models have been proposed to explain the recent tectonics and formation of this region: those invoking delamination of continental lithosphere beneath the Betic-Rif Alboran Sea region, and those favouring subduction of oceanic lithosphere, with associated roll-back. Numerous marine geophysical surveys were performed in the Gulf of Cadiz area during the last years, many as part of the NEAREST European project. Multi-beam bathymetry and multi-channel seismic (MCS) data were acquired, which help constrain the upper crustal structures. Deep structural maps demonstrate that sediment thicknesses in the central Gulf of Cadiz (beneath the accretionary wedge) reach a maximum of 12-13 km. Additional wide-angle seismic records acquired during the SISMAR experiment (2001) testify to the difficulty of even low-frequency waves to penetrate below this thick sedimentary body. Nevertheless, from the resulting models a 7-to-10-km thick basement is inferred beneath the western and central Gulf, which forms a roughly E-W oriented trough between the thicker (20-30 km) continental crust of SW Iberia and NW Morocco. During the NEAREST-SEIS cruise on the B/O Hesperides (nov. 2008), two wide-angle seismic lines were acquired in the Gulf of Cadiz area using a seismic source composed of seven 1500LL Bolt airguns (4520 in3), shot at 90 s intervals. 19 ocean bottom seismometers (OBS) from Ifremer and the University of Brest and 17 OBS from UTM-CSIC, Barcelona were on board. The longer profile was shot NW-SE in the western part of the Gulf, crossing from Tagus plain to Seine abyssal plain (profile 1, 29 OBS deployments). The shorter one was a line roughly perpendicular to the South Portuguese margin (inner part of the Gulf), crossing from Portimao Canyon, the frontal portion of the accretionary wedge frontal, where the sedimentary cover is still relatively thin (profile 2, tending NNE-SSW). Here we focus on profile 2, the main purpose being to determine an accurate location of the transition between continental and oceanic crust. 15 OBS were deployed along this line with a ~7 nm spacing, and it was extended on land by landstations (Portuguese side). Most of the wide-angle data were of good quality, despite the rapid decrease of the amplitude arrivals with increasing offset, due to the combination of a lack of source energy and the particular nature of material constituting the accretionary wedge. The following processing was applied to all sections: deconvolution, 4-16 Hz Butterworth filter, equalization. The data generally show clear sedimentary refracted phases, deeper intracrustal phases, some arrivals refracted in the upper mantle and reflections at the boundary between the crust and the mantle (PmP). A first modelling of the corresponding data is performed using a joint refraction/reflection traveltime tomography approach (1st arrivals and PmP phase are inverted jointly), following a Monte-Carlo type analysis to avoid the dependency on the starting model and provide velocity uncertainties. A checkerboard test is also computed to estimate the resolvability of the different parts of the resulting model. Information given by coincident MCS data (profile SWIM-01; SWIM experiment, 2006) is used to discuss and validate our velocity reconstructions. The wide-angle velocity model obtained along profile 2 images for the first time the evolution of basement structures (down to the Moho) from the South Po

Estudo comparativo entre estrelas centrais de nebulosas planetárias deficientes em hidrogênio  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Apresentamos neste trabalho o resultado de um estudo das principais características espectrais das estrelas centrais de nebulosas planetárias (ECNP) deficientes em hidrogênio. A origem e a evolução dessas estrelas ainda constitui um problema em aberto na evolução estelar. Geralmente esses objetos são divididos em [WCE], [WCL] e [WELS]. Os tipos [WCE] e [WCL] apresentam um espectro típico de uma estrela Wolf-Rayet carbonada de população I e as [WELS] apresentam linhas fracas de carbono e oxigênio em emissão. Existem evidências que apontam a seguinte sequência evolutiva : [WCL] = > [WCE] = > [WELS] = > PG 1159 (pré anã-branca). No entanto, tal cenário apresenta falhas como por exemplo a falta de ECNP entre os tipos [WCL] e [WCE]. Baseados em uma amostra de 24 objetos obtida no telescópio de 1.52m em La Silla, Chile (acordo ESO/ON), ao longo do ano 2000, apresentamos os resultados da comparação das larguras equivalentes de diversas linhas relevantes entre os tipos [WCL], [WCE] e [WELS]. Verificamos que nossos dados estão de acordo com a sequência evolutiva. Baseado nas linhas de C IV, conseguimos dividir pela primeira vez as [WELS] em dois grupos principais. Além disso, os dados reforçam a afirmação de que as [WCE] são as estrelas que possuem a maior temperatura entre as ECNP deficientes em hidrogênio. Discutimos ainda, a escassez de dados disponíveis na literatura e a necessidade da obtenção de parametros físicos para estes objetos.

Life Cycle Assessment of the MBT plant in Ano Liossia, Athens, Greece.  

PubMed

The aim of this paper is the application of Life Cycle Assessment to the operation of the MBT facility of Ano Liossia in the region of Attica in Greece. The region of Attica is home to almost half the population of Greece and the management of its waste is a major issue. In order to explicitly analyze the operation of the MBT plant, five scenarios were generated. Actual operation data of the MBT plant for the year 2008 were provided by the region of Attica and the LCA modeling was performed via the SimaPro 5.1 software while impact assessment was performed utilizing the Eco-indicator'99 method. The results of our analysis indicate that even the current operation of the MBT plant is preferable to landfilling. Among the scenarios of MBT operation, the one with complete utilization of the MBT outputs, i.e. compost, RDF, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, is the one that generates the most environmental gains. Our analysis indicates that the exploitation of RDF via incineration is the key factor towards improving the environmental performance of the MBT plant. Our findings provide a quantitative understanding of the MBT plant. Interpretation of results showed that proper operation of the modern waste management systems can lead to substantial reduction of environmental impacts and savings of resources. PMID:21975302

Surgery for fistula-in-ano in a specialist colorectal unit: a critical appraisal  

PubMed Central

Background Several techniques have been described for the management of fistula-in-ano, but all carry their own risks of recurrence and incontinence. We conducted a prospective study to assess type of presentation, treatment strategy and outcome over a 5-year period. Methods Between 1st January 2005 and 31st March 2011 247 patients presenting with anal fistulas were treated at the University Hospital Tor Vergata and were included in the present prospective study. Mean age was 47 years (range 16-76 years); minimum follow-up period was 6 months (mean 40, range 6-74 months). Patients were treated using 4 operative approaches: fistulotomy, fistulectomy, seton placement and rectal advancement flap. Data analyzed included: age, gender, type of fistula, operative intervention, healing rate, postoperative complications, reinterventions and recurrence. Results Etiologies of fistulas were cryptoglandular (n = 218), Crohn's disease (n = 26) and Ulcerative Colitis (n = 3). Fistulae were classified as simple -intersphincteric 57 (23%), low transphincteric 28 (11%) and complex -high transphicteric 122 (49%), suprasphincteric 2 (0.8%), extrasphinteric 2 (0.8%), recto-vaginal 7 (2.8%) Crohn 26 (10%) and UC 3 (1.2%). The most common surgical procedure was the placement of seton (62%), usually applied in case of complex fistulae and Crohn's patients. Eighty-five patients (34%) underwent fistulotomy, mainly for intersphincteric and mid/low transphincteric tracts. Crohn's patients were submitted to placement of one or more loose setons. The main treatment successfully eradicated the primary fistula tract in 151/247 patients (61%). Three cases of major incontinence (1.3%) were detected during the follow-up period; Furthermore, three patients complained minor incontinence that was successfully treated by biofeedback and permacol injection into the internal anal sphincter. Conclusions This prospective audit demonstrates an high proportion of complex anal fistulae treated by seton placement that was the most common surgical technique adopted to treat our patients as a first line. Nevertheless, a good outcome was achieved in the majority of patients with a limited rate of faecal incontinence (6/247 = 2.4%). New technologies provide promising alternatives to traditional methods of management particularly in case of complex fistulas. There is, however, a real need for high-quality randomized control trials to evaluate the different surgical and non surgical treatment options.

H/V ratio in Athens and the strong motion at the Ano Liosia site during the 1999 Athens earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The damaging 1999 Athens earthquake of Mw=5.9 occurred at about 20km from the city center. The intensity distribution in the capital, ranging from V to IX, was quite irregular due to combination of the source, path and site effects. The 30-stations temporary network of the University of Patras, installed in the area of Attica for 50 days, recorded a significant part of the aftershock sequence. The aftershocks not only delineated the mainshock fault plane, but they also provided important site classification. The Horizontal-to-Vertical spectral ratio method was applied, and the most significant amplification (H/V exceeding 4 in the frequency range 1-4Hz) was found at the Ano Liosia site, belonging to the most heavily damaged zones with intensity IX. The site is situated in a shallow basin, whose surface extent is about 4x4 km, and the maximum depth is of about 150 m. Based on geological and geophysical data (Vp, Vs, Q) measured at the site, the numerical modeling of the seismic site response was carried out. The finite-differences technique was used for a 2D modeling, and significant edge effects were revealed, e.g. the amplification by a factor of 3, with respect to the outcropping bedrock. The 1D effects of the sediment layering, modeled by the matrix technique, would produce much weaker amplification, and simpler time history of the response. No recording of the mainshock is available from Ano Liosia. Nevertheless, based on the finite-extent source model validated by the existing strong motion records in Athens, we assume that the bedrock motion in Ano Liosia had its PGA ranging from 0.2 to 0.3 g, resulting from the relatively small epicentral distance (~ 10 km) and the forward source directivity (Serpetsidaki et al., session SM10). When combined with the above discussed site effect, the PGA values in Ano Liosia might locally exceed 0.6g.

Dust control research for SEI  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A study, at NASA Johnson Space Center, of dust control requirements for surface habitats has focused on identification of the dust problem, identifying dust control techniques and dust control technology areas requiring research development. This research was performed for the Surface Habitats and Construction (SHAC) technology area. Dust control consists of two problems: (1) how to keep it out of the habitat; and (2) once the habitat or airlock is contaminated with dust, how to collect it. This paper describes the dust environment, the Apollo experience and dust control methods used, future EVA operational considerations, and dust control concepts for surface habitats.

Long-term results in the treatment of fistula-in-ano with fibrin glue: a prospective study  

PubMed Central

Purpose This prospective study was done to analyze the efficacy of commercial fibrin glue application in the healing of patients with fistulas-in-ano from a long-term (mean 4.5 years) research period. Methods This clinical trial of forty-six patients was performed during the period from January 2004 to February 2005. Thirty-nine men and seven women were treated for a fistula-in-ano with a commercial fibrin glue application. In the operating room, the patients underwent an anorectal examination under spinal anesthesia. The external and internal fistula tract openings were then identified. The fistula tract was curetted. Fibrin glue was injected into the external fistula opening until the fibrin glue could be seen coming from the internal opening. Results The overall initial success rate was 86.95% (40/46). Recurrence rate was 41.30% (19/46). Two patients underwent a re-application with fibrin glue and the fistulas of these patients closed. The total recurrence rate was 36.95% (17/46). The long-term overall success rate was 63.04% (29/46). Conclusion Fibrin glue application was thus found to be an easy, safe, acceptable, successful alternative treatment in the management of fistulas-in-ano. Choosing the patient correctly is very important because long (more than 4 cm) and non-ramificate fistula tracts usually close with commercial fibrin glue.

Analysing the primacy of distance in the utilization of health services in the Ahafo-Ano South district, Ghana.  

PubMed

Although the distance factor has been identified as key in the utilization of health services in rural areas of developing countries, it has been analysed without recourse to related factors of travel time and transport cost. Also, the influence of distance on vulnerable groups in utilization has not been an object of survey by researchers. This paper addresses the impact of distance on utilization, and how distance compares with travel time and transport cost that are related to it in the utilization of health services in the Ahafo-Ano South (rural) district in Ghana. The study, a cross-sectional survey, also identifies the position of distance among other important factors of utilization. A sample of 400, drawn through systematic random technique, was used for the survey. Data were analysed using the regression model and some graphic techniques. The main instruments used in data collection were formal (face-by-face) interview and a questionnaire. The survey finds that distance is the most important factor that influences the utilization of health services in the Ahafo-Ano South district. Other key factors are income, service cost and education. The effect of travel time on utilization reflects that of distance and utilization. Recommendations to reduce distance coverage, improve formal education and reduce poverty have been made. PMID:14727709

Controlled, randomized trial of island flap anoplasty for treatment of trans-sphincteric fistula-in-ano: early results.  

PubMed

Treatment of trans-sphincteric fistula is usually a compromise between recurrence and incontinence. Dermal island flap anoplasty has been found to be useful in the treatment of these fistulas. We performed a randomized trial to compare dermal island flap anoplasty with conventional treatment for trans-sphincteric fistula-in-ano. Seventy nine patients with fistula-in-ano were recruited; twenty patients with trans-sphincteric fistula confirmed by endoanal ultrasound were prospectively randomized to receive either dermal island flap anoplasty (IFA) or conventional treatment (CVN) for trans-sphincteric fistula-inano. Conventional treatment consisted of lay open fistulotomy or seton insertion if deemed unsuitable for fistulotomy. Dermal island flap anoplasty involved a cutaneous advancement flap into the rectum. Pain scores, fecal incontinence scores, operative complications, wound healing and recurrence rates were charted. Two patients in the CVN group required seton insertions, which were still intact at the 9-month follow-up. Two patients with similar high trans-sphincteric fistula in the IFA group avoided having a long-term seton. There were no differences in the postoperative pain score, incontinence score, complications, wound healing and recurrence rates between the two groups. IFA is a safe and useful method for treating transsphincteric fistula. It can be considered when a suprasphincteric extension is suspected, thus avoiding risk of incontinence or the discomfort of a long-term seton. PMID:16007352

A comparative clinical study of Snuhi Ksheera Sutra, Tilanala Kshara Sutra and Apamarga Kshara Sutra in Bhagandara (Fistula in Ano).  

PubMed

Bhagandara (Fistula in Ano) at modern parlance is a common anorectal condition prevalent in the populations worldwide and its prevalence is second highest after Arsha (hemorrhoids). Kshara Sutra (K.S.) is one of the chief modality in the treatment of Bhagandara in Ayurvedic science. Exploration of the new plants for the preparation of Kshara as a better substitute to Apamarga Kshara is the need of the hour. To find out an effective alternative to Apamarga K.S. in view of easy processing, a Snuhi Ksheera Sutra without any Kshara and the Tilanala K.S. were opted for their clinical evaluation. Total 33 cases of Bhagandara were divided randomly into 3 groups, having 11 patients in each group. In Group A, Snuhi Ksheera Sutra; in Group B, Tilanala K.S. and in Group C, Apamarga K.S. were used. Assessment was done on objective (Unit Cutting Time - UCT) and subjective parameters. Statistically insignificant difference was observed in the efficacy of treatment by subjective parameters like pain, discharge, etc. between the three groups. It was found that Tilanala K.S. showed higher UCT (9.76 days) while lower in Snuhi Ksheera Sutra (7.42 days) as compared to Apamarga K.S. (8.82 days). Thus Tilanala K.S. can be used as a substitute for Apamarga K.S. and Snuhi Ksheera Sutra can be employed in the recurrent fibrosed cases of Bhagandara. PMID:23049190

V3885 Sgr é uma variável cataclísmica classificada como sendo do tipo nova-like. É apresentado um estudo espectrofotométrico de V3885 Sgr de alta resolução temporal feito na região do visível. A região observada é centrada em Ha e abrange também a linha de HeI 6678. O primeiro resultado obtido neste estudo é a determinação do período orbital a partir de medidas da velocidade radial da linha de Ha como sendo 0,20716071(22) dias, resolvendo inconsistências quanto a esse valor na literatura e definindo uma efeméride a longo prazo para o sistema. Com este período e as medidas de velocidade radial do perfil de linha de Ha foi construído um diagrama de massas, através do qual restringimos as massas das componentes estelares do sistema e limitamos a inclinação orbital do sistema. Foram construídos diagramas de Greenstein para as linhas de Ha e HeI, onde os espectros médios em cada intervalo de fase são representados lado a lado em escala de cinza, indicando a existência de uma emissão intensa proveniente da parte posterior do disco. A partir da tomografia Doppler obtivemos perfis de emissividade radial para o disco tanto para a linha de Ha como para HeI. Os resultados obtidos são comparados com os de outros sistemas estudados com a mesma técnica. Serão apresentados também resultados da tomografia de flickering para o sistema.

Voltage- and calcium-dependent gating of TMEM16A/Ano1 chloride channels are physically coupled by the first intracellular loop  

PubMed Central

Ca2+-activated Cl? channels (CaCCs) are exceptionally well adapted to subserve diverse physiological roles, from epithelial fluid transport to sensory transduction, because their gating is cooperatively controlled by the interplay between ionotropic and metabotropic signals. A molecular understanding of the dual regulation of CaCCs by voltage and Ca2+ has recently become possible with the discovery that Ano1 (TMEM16a) is an essential subunit of CaCCs. Ano1 can be gated by Ca2+ or by voltage in the absence of Ca2+, but Ca2+- and voltage-dependent gating are very closely coupled. Here we identify a region in the first intracellular loop that is crucial for both Ca2+ and voltage sensing. Deleting 448EAVK in the first intracellular loop dramatically decreases apparent Ca2+ affinity. In contrast, mutating the adjacent amino acids 444EEEE abolishes intrinsic voltage dependence without altering the apparent Ca2+affinity. Voltage-dependent gating of Ano1 measured in the presence of intracellular Ca2+ was facilitated by anions with high permeability or by an increase in [Cl?]e. Our data show that the transition between closed and open states is governed by Ca2+ in a voltage-dependent manner and suggest that anions allosterically modulate Ca2+-binding affinity. This mechanism provides a unified explanation of CaCC channel gating by voltage and ligand that has long been enigmatic.

Targeted Next-Generation Sequencing of a 12.5 Mb Homozygous Region Reveals ANO10 Mutations in Patients with Autosomal-Recessive Cerebellar Ataxia  

PubMed Central

Autosomal-recessive cerebellar ataxias comprise a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders. In contrast to their dominant counterparts, unraveling the molecular background of these ataxias has proven to be more complicated and the currently known mutations provide incomplete coverage for genotyping of patients. By combining SNP array-based linkage analysis and targeted resequencing of relevant sequences in the linkage interval with the use of next-generation sequencing technology, we identified a mutation in a gene and have shown its association with autosomal-recessive cerebellar ataxia. In a Dutch consanguineous family with three affected siblings a homozygous 12.5 Mb region on chromosome 3 was targeted by array-based sequence capture. Prioritization of all detected sequence variants led to four candidate genes, one of which contained a variant with a high base pair conservation score (phyloP score: 5.26). This variant was a leucine-to-arginine substitution in the DUF 590 domain of a 16K transmembrane protein, a putative calcium-activated chloride channel encoded by anoctamin 10 (ANO10). The analysis of ANO10 by Sanger sequencing revealed three additional mutations: a homozygous mutation (c.1150_1151del [p.Leu384fs]) in a Serbian family and a compound-heterozygous splice-site mutation (c.1476+1G>T) and a frameshift mutation (c.1604del [p.Leu535X]) in a French family. This illustrates the power of using initial homozygosity mapping with next-generation sequencing technology to identify genes involved in autosomal-recessive diseases. Moreover, identifying a putative calcium-dependent chloride channel involved in cerebellar ataxia adds another pathway to the list of pathophysiological mechanisms that may cause cerebellar ataxia.

Estudo e aplicação do código de desembaraçamento espectral - Korel - em sistemas triplos  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

O código KOREL é uma ferramenta adicional eficiente para a determinação simultânea de parâmetros orbitais espectroscópicos para o desembaraço de espectros individuais de sistemas estelares com até cinco componentes. Estudos já realizados (Torres,KBV,2002, Dissertação de Mestrado DF-ICEx-UFMG) mostram as limitações, aplicabilidade e eficiência do código para sistemas com duas componentes. Apresentamos, neste trabalho, a continuação dos estudos para sistemas com três componentes (sistemas hierárquicos), utilizando espectros sintéticos "gabaritos" de estrelas individuais em órbitas cujos parâmetros são conhecidos "a priori". Geramos os espectros compostos e verificamos como o código reproduz os parâmetros orbitais e espectros individuais em diversas situações físicas. É apresentado, ainda, uma discussão da aplicabilidade do código em sistemas reais como RV Crateris (Machado,ACM,1997, Dissertação de Mestrado DF-ICEx-UFMG), um sistema triplo cujas componentes eclipsantes estão, provavelmente, ainda na fase pré-sequência principal.

The mechanism of the reduction of [AnO2]2+ (An = U, Np, Pu) in aqueous solution, and by Fe(II) containing proteins and mineral surfaces, probed by DFT calculations.  

PubMed

The fate of actinyl species in the environment is closely linked to oxidation state, since the reduction of An(VI) to An(IV) greatly decreases their mobility due to the precipitation of the relatively insoluble An(IV) species. Here we study the mechanism of the reduction of [AnO(2)](2+) (An = U, Np, Pu) both in aqueous solution and by Fe(II) containing proteins and mineral surfaces, using density functional theory calculations. We find a disproportionation mechanism involving a An(V)-An(V) cation-cation complex, and we have investigated how these complexes are formed in the different environments. We find that the behaviour of U and Pu complexes are similar, but the reduction of Np(V) to Np(IV) would seems to be more difficult, in line with the experimental finding that Np(V) is generally more stable than U(V) or Pu(V). Although the models we have used are somewhat idealised, our calculations suggest that there are strong similarities between the biotic and abiotic reduction pathways. PMID:21837318

The geometric structures, vibrational frequencies and redox properties of the actinyl coordination complexes ([AnO2(L)n](m); An = U, Pu, Np; L = H2O, Cl-, CO3(2-), CH3CO2(-), OH-) in aqueous solution, studied by density functional theory methods.  

PubMed

The geometric and electronic structures of the aqua, chloro, acetato, hydroxo and carbonato complexes of U, Np and Pu in both their (VI) and (V) oxidation states, and in an aqueous environment, have been studied using density functional theory methods. We have obtained micro-solvated structures derived from molecular dynamics simulations and included the bulk solvent using a continuum model. We find that two different hydrogen bonding patterns involving the axial actinyl oxygen atoms are sometimes possible, and may give rise to different An-O bond lengths and vibrational frequencies. These alternative structures are reflected in the experimental An-O bond lengths of the aqua and carbonato complexes. The variation of the redox potential of the uranyl complexes with the different ligands has been studied using both BP86 and B3LYP functionals. The relative values for the four uranium complexes having anionic ligands are in surprisingly good agreement with experiment, although the absolute values are in error by approximately 1 eV. The absolute error for the aqua species is much less, leading to an incorrect order of the redox potentials of the aqua and chloro species. PMID:19623391

[Encefalitis por anticuerpos contra el receptor de NMDA: experiencia con seis pacientes pediatricos. Potencial eficacia del metotrexato].  

PubMed

INTRODUCTION. Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor encephalitis is a condition that is increasingly more frequently diagnosed in the paediatric age. Unlike adults, in many cases it is not associated to tumours and the most common initial manifestations in children are seizures and movement disorders, while in adults there is a predominance of psychiatric alterations. CASE REPORTS. We present six confirmed paediatric cases with antibodies against the subunit NR1 of the NMDA receptor in serum and cerebrospinal fluid. Five of the cases began with seizures as the initial clinical symptom prior to the development of the classical clinical features of this condition. In all cases, steroids were used as the first line of treatment, although these only brought about control over the manifestations in one of them; the other patients therefore required second-line immunomodulators. All the patients received methotrexate as immunomodulator treatment to prevent relapses, and in all cases there was an improvement in the patients' situation. CONCLUSIONS. In our series of patients with anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, none were associated with tumours. All of them were given methotrexate for at least one year and no adverse clinical or analytical events were observed; likewise, there were no neurological sequelae or relapses during treatment. Although it is a small series and it would be advisable to increase the number and time to progression, we see methotrexate as an excellent alternative immunomodulator treatment for this pathology.

[Treatment of fissure in ano by the method of laser coagulation].  

PubMed

The article analyses the results of treatment of acute and chronic anal fissures with the use of the method of laser photocoagulation in 181 patients, in 87 of them the fissures were combined with other proctological diseases. The essence of the operation is three-fold laser treatment (CO2 laser) of the edges and floor of the fissures. The pathologically changed tissues are evaporated and coagulated in this case with the formation of a coagulation film on the wound surface. Histological examination of bioptic material collected from the zone exposed to the effect of the laser shows complete disappearance of the pathological tissue. The operation is simple and sparing in the treatment of anal tissues, ensures improvement of the immediate results, as well as a decrease of the frequency of a recurrence to 1.4%. The method may be introduced successfully into outpatient surgical practice. PMID:2214569

The Multi-factor Predictive Seis &Gis Model of Ecological, Genetical, Population Health Risk and Bio-geodynamic Processes In Geopathogenic Zones  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Introduction After the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (CNPP) disaster (04.26.1986) a huge amount (over 2000 sq. km) of nuclear wastes appeared within so-called "Cher- nobyl Exclusion Zone" (CEZ). At present there are not enough storage facilities in the Ukraine for safe disposal of nuclear wastes and hazardous chemical wastes. The urgent problem now is safe isolation of these dangerous wastes. According to the developed state program of radioactive waste management, the construction of a na- tional storage facility of nuclear wastes is planned. It is also possible to create regional storage facilities for hazardous chemical wastes. The region of our exploration cov- ers the eastern part of the Korosten Plutone and its slope, reaching the CNPP. 3D Space-Time Surface Imaging of Geophysical Fields. There are only three direct meth- ods of stress field reconstruction in present practice, namely the field investigations based on the large-scale fracturing tests, petrotectonic and optical polarization meth- ods. Unfortunately, all these methods are extremely laborious and need the regular field tests, which is difficult to conduct in the areas of anisotropic rock outcrops. A compilation of magnetic and gravity data covering the CNPP area was carried out as a prelude to an interpretation study. More than thirty map products were generated from magnetic, gravity and geodesy data to prepare the 3D Space-Time Surface Images (3D STSI). Multi-layer topography and geophysic surfaces included: total magnetic intensity, isostatically-corrected Bouguer gravity, aspect and slope, first and second derivatives, vertical and horizontal curvature, histogram characteristics and space cor- relation coefficients between the gradient fields. Many maps shows the first and sec- ond derivatives of the potential fields, with the results of lineament (edge) structure detection superimposed. The lineament or edges of the potential fields are located from maximal gradient in many directions extracted from the total vertical and hori- zontal gradient respectively, both shaded from the 5 northeast to 355 northwest. The dip of multi-layer surfaces indicates the down -"gradient" direction in the fields. The methodology of 3D STSI is based on the analysis of vertical and horizontal anisotropy of gravity and magnetic fields, as well as of multi-layer 3D space-time surface model (3D STSM) of the stress fields. The 3D STSM is multi-layer topology structure of 1 lineaments or gradients (edges) and surfaces calculated by uniform matrices of the geophysical fields. One of the information components of the stress fields character- istics is the aspects and slopes for compressive and tensile stresses. Overlaying of the 3D STSI and lineaments with maps of multi-layer gradients enables to create highly reliable 3D Space-Time Kinematic Model "3D STKM". The analysis of 3D STKM in- cluded: - the space-time reconstruct of forces direction and strain distribution scheme during formation of geological structures and structural paragenesis (lineaments) of potential fields; - predict the real location of expected tectonic dislocations, zones of rock fracturing and disintegration, and mass-stable blocks. Based on these data, the 3D STSM are drawn which reflect the geodynamics of territory development on the ground of paleotectonic reconstruction of successive activity stages having formed the present-day lithosphere. Thus three-dimensional STSM allows to construct an un- mixing geodynamic processes in any interval of fixed space-time in coordinates x, y, t(z). The integrated of the 3D STSM and 3D seismic models enables also to create structural-kinematic and geodynamic maps of the Earth's crust at different depth. As a result, the classification of CNPP areas is performed into zones of compressive and tensile stresses characterized by enhanced permeability of rocks, and zones of consoli- dation with minimal rocks permeability. In addition, the vertically alternating zones of extension and consolidation are identified. These data correlate with res

Effect of PP2A on p34SEI-1 expression in response to ionizing radiation in MCF-7 human breast cancer cells.  

PubMed

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women and it is highly treatable by radiotherapy and/or radiochemotherapy. A global analysis of the protein expression pattern was performed to identify radiation-responsive proteins in MCF-7 breast cancer cells using 2D-PAGE coupled with MALDI-TOF-MS. When MCF-7 cells were exposed to ionizing radiation (IR) such as ?-rays, eight proteins (GH2, RGS17, BAK1, CCNH, TSG6, RAD51B, IGFBP1, and CASP14) were up-regulated and three proteins (C1QRF, PLSCR2, and p34SE1-1) were down-regulated. In an effort to find what mechanisms are responsible for these changes, we initially focused on p34SE1-1, which is known as a transcriptional regulator and oncogene. Our results show that p34SE1-1 expression is significantly decreased only at the protein level but not at the transcriptional level after IR treatment. We suggest that the B55 regulatory subunit of PP2A, a positive regulator of p34SE1-1, is at least partly responsible for the decreased p34SE1-1 expression, in which the B55 regulatory subunit of PP2A was down-regulated at the protein level as a cellular response to IR. We, therefore, propose that inactivated PP2A resulting from the absence of the B55 subunit may not be able to dephosphorylate p34SE1-1 and therefore increase the phosphory-lated form of p34SE1-1 with low stability. Our further extended study shows that the p34SE1-1 expression level was not changed after H2O2 treatment at either protein or transcriptional levels. This result implies that MCF-7 cells seem to use different signaling pathways in response to IR and H2O2 stresses although both of them belong to the same DNA damage inducing stimuli of reactive oxygen species (ROS).

Estudo de não gaussianidade nas anisotropias da RCF medidas Wmap  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A investigação do campo de flutuações da Radiação Cósmica de Fundo (RCF) pode oferecer um importante teste para os modelos cosmológicos que descrevem a origem e a evolução das flutuações primordiais. De um lado, apresenta-se o modelo inflacionário que prevê um espectro de flutuações adiabáticas distribuídas segundo uma gaussiana e, de outro, os modelos de defeitos topológicos (dentre outros) que descrevem um mecanismo para a geração de flutuações de isocurvatura que obedecem a uma distribuição não gaussiana. Este trabalho tem como objetivo caracterizar traços do modelo não gaussiano de campo misto (entre flutuações adiabáticas e de isocurvatura) nos mapas do Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP). Simulações das anisotropias da RCF no contexto de mistura indicam traços marcantes na distribuição das flutuações de temperatura, mesmo quando consideradas pequenas contribuições do campo de isocurvatura (da ordem de 0.001). O efeito da mistura entre os campos resulta na transferência de potência de flutuações em escalas angulares intermediárias para flutuações em pequenas escalas angulares. Este efeito pode ser caracterizado pela relação entre as amplitudes dos primeiros picos acústicos no espectro de potência da RCF. Neste trabalho, investigamos a contribuição do campo de isocurvatura, no contexto de mistura, sobre as observações recentes da RCF realizadas pelo WMAP. As previsões do modelo de campo misto, uma vez confrontadas com as observações em pequenas escalas angulares, podem ajudar a revelar a natureza das flutuações primordiais.

The stability of the SEI layer, surface composition and the oxidation state of transition metals at the electrolyte-cathode interface impacted by the electrochemical cycling: X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy investigation.  

PubMed

The stability of the valence state of the 3d transition metal ions and the stoichiometry of LiMO(2) (M = Co, Ni, Mn) layered oxides at the surface-electrolyte interface plays a crucial role in energy storage applications. The surface oxidation/reduction of the cations caused by the contact of the solids to air or to the electrolyte results in the blocking of the Li-transport through the interface that leads to the fast batteries deterioration. The influence of the end-of-charge voltage on the chemical composition and the oxidation state of 3d transition metal ions, as well as the stability of the solid-electrolyte interface formed during the electrochemical Li-deintercalation/intercalation of the LiCoO(2) and Li(Ni,Mn,Co)O(2), have been investigated by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. While the chemical composition of the solid-electrolyte interface is similar for both layered oxide surfaces, the electrochemical cycling to some critical voltage values leads to the disappearance of the interface. By the analysis of the shape of the 2p and 3s photoelectron emissions we show that the formation of the solid-electrolyte interface layer correlates with the partial reduction of the trivalent Co ions at the electrolyte-LiCoO(2) interface and the amount of the Co(2+) ions is increased as the solid-electrolyte interface vanishes. In contrast, the Mn(4+), Co(3+) and Ni(2+) ions of the Li(Ni,Mn,Co)O(2) are stable at the interface under the electrochemical cycling to higher end-of-charge voltage. A correlation between deterioration of the LiCoO(2) and Li(Ni,Mn,Co)O(2) batteries and the change of electronic structure at the surface/interface after the electrochemical cycling has been found. The dissolution of the solid-electrolyte interface layer might be the reason for the fast deterioration of the Li-ion batteries. PMID:22858824

Co-operativity among defect sites in AnO2+ and An4O9 (An = U, Np or Pu)  

SciTech Connect

Actinide dioxides derived from the AnO{sub 2} fluorite lattice are of high technological relevance due to their application in nuclear reactor fuels. Oxidation of AnO{sub 2} compounds emerges as a central theme in fuel fabrication, reactor operation, long-term storage forms for both spent fuels and surplus weapons materials, and environmental actinide migration. In this paper, we use density functional theory calculations to study the oxidation of uranium, neptunium and plutonium dioxides, AnO{sub 2} (An = U, Np or Pu), in O{sub 2} and O{sub 2}/H{sub 2}O environments. We pay particular attention to the formation of oxygen clusters (co-operativity) in AnO{sub 2+x} and how this phenomenon govern oxidation thermodynamics and the development of ordered An{sub 4}O{sub 9} compounds. The so-called split di-interstitial, which is composed of two nearest neighbor octahedral oxygen interstitials that are distorted in such a way that they dislocate one regular fluorite lattice oxygen ion to form a cluster of triangular geometry, is predicted to be the fundamental building block of the most stable cluster configurations. We also identify how the formation of oxygen defect clusters and the degree of oxidation in AnO{sub 2+x} are both governed by the characer of the An-5f to excess O-2p charger transfer, i.e. the charge transfer to the O-2p orbitals of the interstitial-like (+x) ions, and the ability of the excess O-2p orbitals to hybridize with regular fluorite lattice ions.

Estudo de perturbações orbitais de satélites artificiais, considerando ressonância, através de transformações canônicas  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Aplicações recentes de satélites artificiais, principalmente aquelas com finalidades geodinâmicas ou altimétricas, requerem órbitas determinadas com bastante precisão. Em particular os satélites do sistema GPS, que têm sido envolvidos direta ou indiretamente em tais problemas, necessitam de ter suas órbitas muito bem conhecidas. As órbitas dos satélites GPS tem uma peculiaridade: o período orbital está em comensurabilidade 2: 1, aproximada, com o período de rotação da Terra. A existência de ressonâncias faz com que métodos usuais de teoria de perturbações não possam ser usados para se estudar órbitas com esta característica. No presente trabalho são apresentados dois processos para se estudar tal problema. Para tanto o sistema dinâmico que descreve o movimento orbital de satélites artificiais, perturbado por forças que derivem ou não de um potencial, incluindo ressonância, é inicialmente colocado em forma canônica estendida. Um dos processos apresentado é baseado na teoria de Lie-Hori e o outro em uma seqüência de transformações canônicas. Perturbações devidas ao geopotencial, ao arrasto atmosférico, à pressão de radiação solar direta (incluindo o efeito da sobra) e à ressonâncias do movimento orbital com o movimento de rotação da Terra são consideradas. Neste trabalho, sucintamente, os dois processos originais desenvolvidos em colaboração com o autor são apresentados. Simulações são feitas mostrando o efeito da ressonâncias 2: 1 na evolução temporal de elementos orbitais de satélites artificiais. Exemplos são exibidos para diversas órbitas considerando-se diferentes excentricidades e inclinações, incluindo às do tipo GPS.

OV-Wav: um novo pacote para análise multiescalar em astronomia  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Wavelets e outras formas de análise multiescalar têm sido amplamente empregadas em diversas áreas do conhecimento, sendo reconhecidamente superiores a técnicas mais tradicionais, como as análises de Fourier e de Gabor, em certas aplicações. Embora a teoria dos wavelets tenha começado a ser elaborada há quase trinta anos, seu impacto no estudo de imagens astronômicas tem sido pequeno até bem recentemente. Apresentamos um conjunto de programas desenvolvidos ao longo dos últimos três anos no Observatório do Valongo/UFRJ que possibilitam aplicar essa poderosa ferramenta a problemas comuns em astronomia, como a remoção de ruído, a detecção hierárquica de fontes e a modelagem de objetos com perfis de brilho arbitrários em condições não ideais. Este pacote, desenvolvido para execução em plataforma IDL, teve sua primeira versão concluída recentemente e está sendo disponibilizado à comunidade científica de forma aberta. Mostramos também resultados de testes controlados ao quais submetemos os programas, com a sua aplicação a imagens artificiais, com resultados satisfatórios. Algumas aplicações astrofísicas foram estudadas com o uso do pacote, em caráter experimental, incluindo a análise da componente de luz difusa em grupos compactos de galáxias de Hickson e o estudo de subestruturas de nebulosas planetárias no espaço multiescalar.

Direct observation of inhomogeneous solid electrolyte interphase on MnO anode with atomic force microscopy and spectroscopy.  

PubMed

Solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) is an in situ formed thin coating on lithium ion battery (LIB) electrodes. The mechanical property of SEI largely defines the cycling performance and the safety of LIBs but has been rarely investigated. Here, we report quantitatively the Young's modulus of SEI films on MnO anodes. The inhomogeneity of SEI film in morphology, structure, and mechanical properties provides new insights to the evolution of SEI on electrodes. Furthermore, the quantitative methodology established in this study opens a new approach to direct investigation of SEI properties in various electrode materials systems. PMID:22385103

Identification and characterization of staphylococcal enterotoxin types G and I from Staphylococcus aureus.  

PubMed

Staphylococcal enterotoxins are exotoxins produced by Staphylococcus aureus that possess emetic and superantigenic properties. Prior to this research there were six characterized enterotoxins, staphylococcal enterotoxin types A to E and H (referred to as SEA to SEE and SEH). Two new staphylococcal enterotoxin genes have been identified and designated seg and sei (staphylococcal enterotoxin types G and I, respectively). seg and sei consist of 777 and 729 nucleotides, respectively, encoding precursor proteins of 258 (SEG) and 242 (SEI) deduced amino acids. SEG and SEI have typical bacterial signal sequences that are cleaved to form toxins with 233 (SEG) and 218 (SEI, predicted) amino acids, corresponding to mature proteins of 27,043 Da (SEG) and 24,928 Da (SEI). Biological activities for SEG and SEI were determined with recombinant S. aureus strains. SEG and SEI elicited emetic responses in rhesus monkeys upon nasogastric administration and stimulated murine T-cell proliferation with the concomitant production of interleukin 2 (IL-2) and gamma interferon (IFN-gamma), as measured by cytokine enzyme-linked immunoassays. SEG and SEI are related to other enterotoxins of S. aureus and to streptococcal pyrogenic exotoxin A (SpeA) and streptococcal superantigen (SSA) of Streptococcus pyogenes. Phylogenetic analysis and comparisons of amino acid and nucleotide sequence identities were performed on related staphylococcal and streptococcal protein toxins to group SEG and SEI among the characterized toxins. SEG is most similar to SpeA, SEB, SEC, and SSA (38 to 42% amino acid identity), while SEI is most similar to SEA, SEE, and SED (26 to 28% amino acid identity). Polyclonal antiserum was generated against purified histidine-tagged SEG and SEI (HisSEG and HisSEI). Immunoblot analysis of the enterotoxins, toxic-shock syndrome toxin 1, and SpeA with antiserum prepared against HisSEG and HisSEI revealed that SEG shares some epitopes with SEC1 while SEI does not.

BUDDA (Bulge/Disk Decomposition Analysis) - um novo programa para análise estrutural de galáxias  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Tem sido prática comum nos últimos anos estudar a distribuição de luminosidade em galáxias fazendo uso da informação contida em toda a imagem da galáxia, já que esta técnica tem se mostrado muito mais confiável do que o simples ajuste de perfis radiais de luminosidade. Através destes estudos bidimensionais, melhores resultados tem sido obtidos na análise e.g. do Plano Fundamental, de correlações entre os parâmetros estruturais de galáxias, de sub-estruturas como barras e anéis nucleares etc. Apresentamos um novo código bidimensional, o BUDDA, de análise estrutural de galáxias, que será disponibilizado para a comunidade. Desenvolvido por nós, o código determina os parâmetros estruturais de galáxias de forma prática e robusta, e pode ser aplicado genericamente em qualquer estudo sobre a formação, evolução e estrutura de galáxias. O programa ainda permite a avaliação direta de sub-estruturas, através de imagens residuais que são obtidas ao se subtrair, das imagens originais, bojo e disco sintéticos que melhor representam essas componentes da galáxia sob consideração. Será apresentada a forma de utilização do código, bem como séries de testes que atestam a sua funcionalidade. Além disso, os resultados da aplicação do código em uma amostra de 51 galáxias serão expostos como exemplo prático, e do seu enorme potencial de uso.

População nuclear e extranuclear em rádio-galáxias  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A natureza do contínuo UV/ótico em rádio-galáxias é muito importante para o seu entendimento. Em baixos redshifts existem evidências de que muitas delas são dominadas no ótico por luz de estrelas velhas, características de galáxias early-type e em altos redshifts a característica dominante é um excesso de luz no UV, freqüentemente associado com estruturas que estão alinhadas aos eixos das estruturas rádio em grande escala. Inicialmente esse excesso foi interpretado como devido a episódios intensos de formação estelar nas galáxias hospedeiras. Entretanto, as descobertas dos alinhamentos entre as estruturas UV e rádio modificaram essa idéia. Foi proposto que a formação estelar é iniciada pela passagem do jato rádio através do meio interestelar das galáxias hospedeiras. A natureza do excesso UV começou a ser compreendida em um estudo detalhado do continuo ótico da 3C321, onde se concluiu que o contínuo desta galáxia tem origem multicomponente, com contribuições de populações velhas e intermediárias, de luz espalhada oriunda de um quasar obscurecido e do contínuo nebular. No presente trabalho estudamos a população nuclear e extranuclear de uma amostra de 24 rádio-galáxias, utilizando espectros óticos de fenda longa, com alta razão sinal/ruído. Através do método de síntese espectral de populações estelares, foram estimadas as contribuições de populações estelares de diferentes idades (e de um contínuo tipo lei de potência devido a um AGN, FC) para a luz integrada das galáxias, em 4020Å. As principais conclusões deste trabalho são: apenas quatro dos objetos estudados têm contribuições significativas (maiores do que 10%) das populações de 100 milhões de anos ou mais jovens (ou de FC) ao longo da região espacial estudada (6 kpc centrais); nenhuma das rádio-galáxias de tipo FRI estudadas tem contribuição significativa destas populações ao longo desta região; duas (de oito) de tipo FRII tem contribuições significativas da luz que vem do AGN, na região nuclear; uma tem contribuição significativa das populações de 100 milhões de anos e mais jovens ao longo dos 4 kpc centrais, indicando claramente a presença de formação estelar recente. Comparando estes resultados com aqueles obtidos para uma amostra de galáxias não ativas de mesmo tipo de Hubble das rádio, encontramos que a principal diferença entre as duas amostras está na contribuição da população de 1 bilhão de anos, geralmente maior nas rádio-galáxias.

Projeto observatórios virtuais: educação através de telescópios robóticos  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

O principal objetivo do projeto Observatórios Virtuais é o ensino na área de ciências através de atividades práticas desenvolvidas em colaboração entre instituições de pesquisa em astronomia e escolas de ensino médio e fundamental. Este ano deverá ser concluída a implantação do programa piloto de estudos, pesquisas e observação astronômica direta, com utilização em tempo real de telescópios robóticos, que assim funcionarão como "observatórios virtuais". O objetivo pedagógico das atividades práticas baseadas nas imagens atronômicas é desenvolver as habilidades e competências dos alunos no uso do método científico. Para isso, serão realizados projetos interdisciplinares, a partir de observações astronômicas, já que a astronomia é uma área interdisciplinar por excelência. Essas atividades terão níveis diferenciados de complexidade, que podem ser adequados aos vários graus do ensino e realidades regionais. Será dada ênfase ao desenvolvimento e aplicação em São Paulo, onde atua a equipe do IAG/USP. Como resultados apresentados no presente trabalho, temos a criação de um software em português para o processamento de imagens obtidas através de CCDs e a elaboração de material para as atividades educacionais relacionadas.

Estatística de lentes gravitacionais e o gás de chaplygin generalizado  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A estatística de lentes gravitacionais constitui uma poderosa ferramenta utilizada na obtenção de vínculos sobre parâmetros cosmológicos, principalmente sobre modelos com uma constante cosmológica. Embora de forma às vezes controversa, antes de 1998, a análise tradicional mostrava que modelos com o parâmetro de densidade da matéria da ordem da unidade são preferidos. Esse resultado começou a ser questionado, alguns anos atrás, com as indicações, advindas da análise de supernovas com alto valor de desvio para o vermelho, de que nosso Universo está acelerando. Atualmente há enorme interesse em saber qual é a natureza da componente responsável pela aceleração cósmica. Energia escura é a denominação usual dessa componente e sua característica principal é possuir pressão negativa. Nos modelos cosmológicos tradicionais, além da energia escura, considera-se também uma outra componente de origem desconhecida. Ela é denominada matéria escura e possui pressão nula. Mais recentemente modelos unificadores em que energia escura e matéria escura são manifestações distintas de um mesmo fluido (altas densidades matéria escura, baixas densidades energia escura) foram sugeridos. Um desses modelos é conhecido como Gás de Chaplygin Generalizado que é o modelo que investigaremos. Em nosso trabalho apresentamos vínculos sobre parâmetros desse modelo usando a estatística de lentes gravitacionais. Usamos observações de quasares na faixa do visível e consideramos extinção em nosso estudo. Análises semelhantes anteriores com esse tipo de objetos e que não consideram extinção são inconsistentes. Comparação dos vínculos obtidos através de lentes gravitacionais com outros advindos de outros testes será também apresentada.

Compilação de dados atômicos e moleculares do UV ao IV próximo para uso em síntese espectral  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Espectros sintéticos são utéis em uma grande variedade de aplicações, desde análise de abundâncias em espectros estelares de alta resolução ao estudo de populações estelares em espectros integrados. A confiabilidade de um espectro sintético depende do modelo de atmosfera adotado, do código de formação de linhas e da qualidade dos dados atômicos e moleculares que são determinantes no cálculo das opacidades da fotosfera. O nosso grupo no departamento de Astronomia no IAG tem utilizado espectros sintéticos há mais de 15 anos, em aplicações voltadas principalmente para a análise de abundâncias de estrelas G, K e M e populações estelares velhas. Ao longo desse tempo, as listas de linhas vieram sendo construídas e atualizadas continuamente, e alguns acréscimos recentes podem ser citados: Castilho (1999, átomos e moléculas no UV), Schiavon (1998, bandas moleculares de TiO) e Melendez (2001, átomos e moléculas no IV próximo). Com o intuito de calcular uma grade de espectros do UV ao IV próximo para uso no estudo de populações estelares velhas, se fazia necessário compilar e homogeneizar as diversas listas em apenas uma lista atômica e uma molecular. Nesse processo, a nova lista compilada foi correlacionada com outras bases de dados (NIST, Kurucz Database, O' Brian et al. 1991) para atualização dos parâmetros que caracterizam a transição atômica (comprimento de onda, log gf e potencial de excitação). Adicionalmente as constantes de interação C6 foram calculadas segundo a teoria de Anstee & O'Mara (1995) e artigos posteriores. As bandas moleculares de CH e CN foram recalculadas com o programa LIFBASE (Luque & Crosley 1999). Nesse poster estão detalhados os procedimentos citados acima, as comparações entre espectros calculados com as novas listas e espectros observados em alta resolução do Sol e de Arcturus, e uma análise do impacto decorrente da utilização de diferentes modelos de atmosfera no espectro sintético. Ao final, temos uma lista de linhas atômicas com mais de 24.000 linhas e uma lista molecular com as moléculas CN, CH, OH, NH, MgH, C2, TiO Gama, CO, FeH, adequadas ao estudo de estrelas G, K e M e populações estelares velhas.

In situ Measurements of the Solid Electrolyte Interphase in Li-Ion Batteries Using Neutron Reflectometry  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The huge advantages of Li-ion batteries, i.e. high energy density and specific power are due not only to the low mass of Li, but also a direct result of the high operating voltage provided by the large electrochemical potential of Li. However, these advantages come at a cost, as all known electrolytes are unstable at these potentials. Li-ion batteries are only made possible by the solid electrolyte interphase, SEI, a passivation layer that forms from the decomposition products of certain electrolytes. Ideally the SEI offers sufficient electronic resistance when it has grown thick enough to stop additional electrolyte decomposition. However, slow continued SEI growth leads to capacity fade and increased cell resistance. Despite the SEI's critical significance, currently structural characterization is incomplete because of the reactive and delicate nature of the SEI and the electrolyte system in which it forms. Here we present the first in situ neutron reflectometry measurements of the SEI layer as function of potential in a working lithium half-cell. The SEI layer after 10 and 20 CV cycles is 4.0 and 4.5 nm, respectively, growing to 8.9 nm after a series of potentiostatic holds that approximates a charge/discharge cycle. Specified data sets show uniform mixing of SEI components.

Sexual competitiveness and compatibility between mass-reared sterile flies and wild populations of Anastrepha Ludens (Diptera: Tephritidae) from different regions in Mexico  

SciTech Connect

The mass-reared colony of Anastrepha ludens (Loew) currently used in Mexico for suppression of the Mexican fruit fly has been in use for over 10 years. Sterile flies are released into a wide range of environmental conditions as part of an integrated area-wide approach to suppress diverse populations of this pest in the Mexican Republic. This paper assesses the performance of the sterile flies interacting with wild populations from the different environments. We investigated the sexual compatibility and competitiveness of the sterile flies when competing with wild populations from 6 representatives Mexican states: Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, Sinaloa, Nayarit, Michoacan, and Chiapas. Results show that the males of the wild populations differed in the time to the onset and peak of sexual activity. Nevertheless, the index of sexual isolation (ISI) reflected sexual compatibility between the populations and the mass-reared strain, indicating that the sterile individuals mate satisfactorily with the wild populations from the 6 states. The male relative performance index (MRPI) showed that the sterile male is as effective in copulating as the wild males. The female relative performance index (FRPI) reflected a general tendency for wild females to copulate in greater proportion than the sterile females, except for the strains from Tamaulipas and Chiapas. In general, the lower participation of the sterile females in copulation increases the possibilities of sterile males to mate with wild females. The relative sterility index (RSI) showed that the acceptance by wild females of the sterile males (25-55%) was similar to that of wild males. Females of the Chiapas strain showed the lowest acceptance of sterile males. Finally, the results obtained in the Fried test (which measures induced sterility in eggs) showed a competitiveness coefficient ranging from 0.2 to 0.5. This suggests that sterile males successfully compete and are compatible with flies from different geographic origins. (author) [Spanish] La colonia actualmente usada para controlar la mosca mexicana de la fruta, Anastrepha ludens (Loew), en Mexico tiene mas de 10 anos en cria masiva. Los insectos esteriles son liberados en una gran variedad de condiciones ambientales como parte de un control integrado para suprimir diversas poblaciones de esta plaga dentro de la Republica Mexicana. El objetivo de este documento esta dirigido a revisar el desempeno de las moscas esteriles frente a poblaciones silvestres procedentes de diferentes ambientes y para esto se realizaron comparaciones de compatibilidad y competitividad sexual de las moscas esteriles contra poblaciones silvestres de seis estados representativos de la Republica Mexicana: Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, Sinaloa, Nayarit, Michoacan y Chiapas. Los resultados obtenidos manifiestan diferencias en el horario de inicio de llamado y mayor actividad sexual del macho entre las moscas provenientes de cada estado. Sin embargo el indice de aislamiento (ISI) reflejo compatibilidad sexual entre la cepa de laboratorio y todas las poblaciones analizadas, indicando que los individuos esteriles pueden aparearse satisfactoriamente con las poblaciones silvestres de los seis estados. El indice de efectividad de apareamiento del macho (MRPI) reflejo de manera global que los machos esteriles son tan efectivos para copular como los silvestres. El indice de efectividad de apareamiento de la hembra (FRPI) reflejo que en la mayoria de los estados las hembras silvestres copularon en mayor proporcion que las hembras esteriles, excepto para las poblaciones de Tamaulipas y Chiapas. En general, la baja participacion de las hembras esteriles en el campo permitio al macho esteril ampliar su probabilidad de apareamiento con las hembras silvestres. En cuanto al indice de esterilidad relativa (RSI), observamos que la aceptacion de las hembras silvestres al macho esteril (25-55%) fue similar a la de los machos silvestres. Las hembras de la poblacion de Chiapas registro la menor aceptacion. Finalmente, los resultados obtenidos en la prueba de Fried, la cual determi

Decomposing self-estimates of intelligence: structure and sex differences across 12 nations.  

PubMed

This study examines the structure of self-estimates of intelligence (SEI) across 12 nations (Australia, Austria, Brazil, France, Iran, Israel, Malaysia, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, UK and US). Participants rated themselves on general and specific abilities from three popular models of intelligence: Gardner's multiple intelligences, Sternberg's triarchic theory of intelligence, and Goleman's emotional intelligence. The results showed that (a) laypeople across nations have similar and invariant concepts of intelligence, (b) concepts of intelligence are cross-culturally closely related to academic notions of intellectual ability and (c) sex differences in general and specific SEI favouring men are consistent across countries. Male hubris and female humility in SEI seem independent of sex differences in actual cognitive ability and national levels of masculinity-femininity. Furthermore, international mean differences in general SEI could not be attributed to discrepancies in national intelligence quotient (IQ) levels or to cultural variations. PMID:18851768

Examining the solid electrolyte interphase on binder-free graphite electrodes.  

SciTech Connect

The solid electrode interphase (SEI) on graphite electrodes is important to the performance, calendar life, and safety characteristics of lithium-ion cells. This article examines the SEI formed on binder-free graphite electrodes prepared by electrophoretic deposition. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and thermogravimetric analysis data were obtained on electrodes cycled in cells containing four electrolytes comprising ethylene carbonate: ethylmethyl carbonate (3:7 by weight) solvent and 1.2 M LiPF{sub 6}, 1 M LiF{sub 2}BC{sub 2}O{sub 4}, 1 M LiBF{sub 4}, or 0.7 M LiB(C{sub 2}O{sub 4}){sub 2} salt. Our observations suggest that, in addition to solvent reduction, the reduction of electrolyte salts plays an important role in SEI formation. Mechanisms to account for the formation of these SEI constituents are included in the article.

The effect of stair case electron injector design on electron overflow in InGaN light emitting diodes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Effect of two-layer (In0.04Ga0.96N and In0.08Ga0.92N) staircase electron injector (SEI) on quantum efficiency of light-emitting-diodes (LEDs) in the context of active regions composed of single and quad 3 nm double heterostructures (DHs) is reported. The experiments were augmented with the first order model calculations of electron overflow percentile. Increasing the two-layer SEI thickness from 4 + 4 nm up to 20 + 20 nm substantially reduced, if not totally eliminated, the electron overflow in single DH LEDs at low injections without degrading the material quality evidenced by the high optical efficiency observed at 15 K and room temperature. The improvement in quad 3 nm DH LEDs with increasing SEI thickness is not so pronounced as the influence of SEI is less for thicker active regions, which in and of themselves necessarily thermalize the carriers.

Queda dos homic?dios em S?o Paulo, Brasil: uma an?lise descritiva  

PubMed Central

Objetivo Descrever a evolução da mortalidade por homicídios no Município de São Paulo segundo tipo de arma, sexo, raça ou cor, idade e áreas de exclusão/inclusão social entre 1996 e 2008. Métodos Estudo ecológico de série temporal. Os dados sobre óbitos ocorridos no Município foram coletados da base de dados do Programa de Aprimoramento das Informações sobre Mortalidade, seguindo a Classificação Internacional de Doenças, Décima Revisão (CID-10). Foram calculadas as taxas de mortalidade por homicídio (TMH) para a população total, por sexo, raça ou cor, faixa etária, tipo de arma e área de exclusão/inclusão social. As TMH foram padronizadas por idade pelo método direto. Foram calculados os percentuais de variação no período estudado. Para as áreas de exclusão/inclusão social foram calculados os riscos relativos de morte por homicídio. Resultados As TMH apresentaram queda de 73,7% entre 2001 e 2008. Foi observada redução da TMH em todos os grupos analisados, mais pronunciada em homens (?74,5%), jovens de 15 a 24 anos (?78,0%) e moradores de áreas de exclusão social extrema (?79,3%). A redução ocorreu, sobretudo, nos homicídios cometidos com armas de fogo (?74,1%). O risco relativo de morte por homicídio nas áreas de exclusão extrema (tendo como referência áreas com algum grau de exclusão social) foi de 2,77 em 1996, 3,9 em 2001 e 2,13 em 2008. Nas áreas de alta exclusão social, o risco relativo foi de 2,07 em 1996 e 1,96 em 2008. Conclusões Para compreender a redução dos homicídios no Município, é importante considerar macrodeterminantes que atingem todo o Município e todos os subgrupos populacionais e microdeterminantes que atuam localmente, influenciando de forma diferenciada os homicídios com armas de fogo e os homicídios na população jovem, no sexo masculino e em residentes em áreas de alta exclusão social.

Nuclear reaction cross sections from a simple effective density using a Glauber model  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We have studied the nuclear reaction dynamics of few halo nuclei in the framework of the well-known Glauber formalism using relativistic (NL3) and nonrelativistic (SEI-I) densities. We find reasonably good agreement with the experimental data of reaction cross sections. A further careful inspection of the results shows that the SEI-I density reproduces better results as compared to the NL3 results.

Direct calculation of Li-ion transport in the solid electrolyte interphase.  

PubMed

The mechanism of Li(+) transport through the solid electrolyte interphase (SEI), a passivating film on electrode surfaces, has never been clearly elucidated despite its overwhelming importance to Li-ion battery operation and lifetime. The present paper develops a multiscale theoretical methodology to reveal the mechanism of Li(+) transport in a SEI film. The methodology incorporates the boundary conditions of the first direct diffusion measurements on a model SEI consisting of porous (outer) organic and dense (inner) inorganic layers (similar to typical SEI films). New experimental evidence confirms that the inner layer in the ?20 nm thick model SEI is primarily crystalline Li(2)CO(3). Using density functional theory, we first determined that the dominant diffusion carrier in Li(2)CO(3) below the voltage range of SEI formation is excess interstitial Li(+). This diffuses via a knock-off mechanism to maintain higher O-coordination, rather than direct-hopping through empty spaces in the Li(2)CO(3) lattice. Mesoscale diffusion equations were then formulated upon a new two-layer/two-mechanism model: pore diffusion in the outer layer and knock-off diffusion in the inner layer. This diffusion model predicted the unusual isotope ratio (6)Li(+)/(7)Li(+) profile measured by TOF-SIMS, which increases from the SEI/electrolyte surface and peaks at a depth of 5 nm, and then gradually decreases within the dense layer. With no fitting parameters, our approach is applicable to model general transport properties, such as ionic conductivity, for SEI films on the surface of other electrodes, from the atomic scale to the mesoscale, as well as aging phenomenon.

The seirena B Class Floral Homeotic Mutant of California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica) Reveals a Function of the Enigmatic PI Motif in the Formation of Specific Multimeric MADS Domain Protein Complexes[C][W][OA  

PubMed Central

The products of B class floral homeotic genes specify petal and stamen identity, and loss of B function results in homeotic conversions of petals into sepals and stamens into carpels. Here, we describe the molecular characterization of seirena-1 (sei-1), a mutant from the basal eudicot California poppy (Eschscholzia californica) that shows homeotic changes characteristic of floral homeotic B class mutants. SEI has been previously described as EScaGLO, one of four B class–related MADS box genes in California poppy. The C terminus of SEI, including the highly conserved PI motif, is truncated in sei-1 proteins. Nevertheless, like the wild-type SEI protein, the sei-1 mutant protein is able to bind CArG-boxes and can form homodimers, heterodimers, and several higher order complexes with other MADS domain proteins. However, unlike the wild type, the mutant protein is not able to mediate higher order complexes consisting of specific B, C, and putative E class related proteins likely involved in specifying stamen identity. Within the PI motif, five highly conserved N-terminal amino acids are specifically required for this interaction. Several families lack this short conserved sequence, including the Brassicaceae, and we propose an evolutionary scenario to explain these functional differences.

Use of novel PCR primers specific to the genes of staphylococcal enterotoxin G, H, I for the survey of Staphylococcus aureus strains isolated from food-poisoning cases and food samples in Taiwan.  

PubMed

Data regarding the incidence of the newly found enterotoxigenic Staphylococcus aureus strains in food poisoning cases and in food samples were to date not available in Taiwan. In this study, PCR primers specific for the detection of SEG, H and I genes, i.e., seg, seh and sei, were used for the assay of 55 human isolates of S. aureus negative to the classical enterotoxins (SEA-->SEE) detection. These isolates were from the fecal specimens of the patients suffering from food poisoning outbreaks. Only eight strains were found to have the seg, seh and sei. The presence of other bacterial pathogens, such as Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Bacillus cereus and Salmonella spp. and perhaps, strains producing other new staphylococcal enterotoxins, in the fecal specimens of these patients, may account for these food poisoning cases. For 139 strains from food samples, such as frozen Chinese foods, Chinese sausages and lunch meals, sea strains accounted for the major portion and it seemed to be the most common SE type to coexist with seg, seh and sei. Only two strains had sec and none of them had seg, seh or sei. For strains without the classical SE genes, only 13 strains had seg, seh and/or sei. The above results imply that seg, seh and sei S. aureus strains play only a minor role in food-borne outbreaks in Taiwan. PMID:15109796

Advanced Lithium Ion Battery Materials Prepared with Atomic Layer Deposition  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

As the world consumes the dwindling supply of fossil fuels, an alternative to gasoline powered vehicles will become necessary. Lithium ion batteries (LIBs) are emerging as the dominant power source for portable electronics, and are seen as a promising energy source in the development of electric vehicles. Current LIB technology is not well suited for vehicles, increases in the energy density, power density and durability are needed before LIB are ready for widespread use in electric vehicles. LiCoO2 and graphite are the dominant cathode and anode active materials, respectively in LIBs. On the cathode side, instabilities in LiCoO 2 can lead to the deterioration of the LIB. Decomposition of electrolyte on the graphite anode surface to form a solid-electrolyte interphase (SEI) consumes lithium from the cathode resulting in a lower battery capacity. Instabilities in the in the SEI can result in catastrophic battery failure. Previous studies have employed metal oxides films, typically grown with wet chemical techniques, to stabilize LiCoO2 and mitigate the formation of the SEI on graphite. The thicknesses of films grown with wet chemical techniques was typically ˜50--1000 A. In order to achieve higher power densities, the particle size of LIB active materials is being scaled down. As active materials get smaller the mass contribution of a protective film can become a significant fraction of the total mass. Atomic layer deposition (ALD) has been used to grow ultra thin films of Al2O3 on LiCoO2 and graphite. By altering the interaction between the active material and the battery electrolyte it was possible to improve the stability of both LiCoO2 and graphite electrodes in LIBs. In the case of graphite, the Al2O3 film may be thought of as an artificial SEI. During the initial charge-discharge cycle of a LIB, the electrolyte decomposes on the anode to form the SEI. The formation of the SEI is believed to prevent further decomposition of the electrolyte on the anode surface. The SEI contains electrolyte decomposition products including Li2CO3, Li2O, LiOH, LiF and R-OLi. In order to grow a truly artificial SEI on the graphite anode, i.e. grow a film that mimics the SEI that forms during charge-discharge cycling, new ALD chemistries for the growth of Li2CO3 and LiOH have been developed. The ALD of an artificial SEI layer may limit lithium loss and improve the capacity stability during charge-discharge cycles.
