    The research of the metallization process of the roll scale and sludge after gas treatment in the BOF production with the use of brown coal semicoke mined in Berezovsky field of the Kansk-Achinsk Basin was carried out. A flow diagram of “cold” briquetting using a water-soluble binder was offered. The reduction of iron from its oxide Fe2O3 with brown coal semicoke in the laboratory electric-tube furnace in the argon atmosphere was studied. The mathematical models of dependence of the metallization degree on variable factors were developed. The optimal values of technological factors and essential characteristics of the obtained metallized products were revealed.

    The outstanding theoretical physicist Arkady Benediktovich Migdal was one of the pioneers of theoretical nuclear physics in the Soviet Union, the founder of a major scientific school, a man of diverse gifts and irresistible personal charm. A. B. Migdal was born on March 11, 1911, in Lida (Belarus). In the 1920s his family moved to Leningrad. Migdal produced his first scientific work at age 17. He then enrolled at the physics department of the Leningrad State University (LSU), but studied there only a short while: arrested, he spent over two months under investigation, then was released (releases were still granted sometimes then). From 1931 to 1936, while working at the factory "Electrical Appliance," he produced several scientific works. At this time he managed to recover a place at the LSU extension division. After graduation in 1936 A. B. Migdal enrolled in graduate school at the Leningrad Physical-Technical Institute, where he formed his research interests and his own research style. His thesis adviser was M. P. Bronshtein. [Note: See footnote, p. 171.] Despite the briefness of this contact with Bronshtein - in 1937 Matvei Petrovich was arrested and executed - this bright, talented and deep person played a major role in Migdal's scientific development...

  3. Selected case from the Arkadi M. Rywlin International Pathology Slide Club: carcinoma of the transverse colon in a young girl.


    Galliani, Carlos A; Sanchez, Irene C; D'Errico, Maria M; Bisceglia, Michele


    We report a case of a 14-year-old female with primary adenocarcinoma of the transverse colon. She was hospitalized after presenting with abdominal pain and signs of intestinal obstruction. There was no health antecedent or family history of neoplasia. Physical examination revealed a distended abdomen. Tenderness was elicited to palpation of the right lower quadrant. Magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen revealed obstructive signs, with a constricting lesion in the mid-transverse colon of probable neoplastic nature. Laparoscopic segmental resection of the colon was followed by standard right hemicolectomy. A circumferential mid-transverse tumor was diagnosed as primary colorectal carcinoma (CRC) of signet-ring cell type, AJCC stage IIIC, Dukes' C stage. On the basis of immunohistochemistry and clinical data, hereditary nonpolyposis and hamartomatous colorectal cancer syndromes were excluded. Involvement of either the p53, BRAF, or K-RAS genes was ruled out by immunohistochemistry profiling and genetic testing. The neoplasm was categorized as sporadic. The possibility of activation of the Wnt signaling pathway was suspected, because of a defective turnover of the β-catenin protein. Postoperatively, the patient was treated with both systemic and intra-abdominal adjuvant chemotherapy, including oxaliplatin. Between 18 and 24 months after diagnosis, intra-abdominal tumor recurrences were detected. The patient underwent bilateral oophorectomies for Krukenberg tumors and received salvage chemotherapy. Recently, additional recurrent metastatic retroperitoneal disease caused hydronephrosis. The retroperitoneal mass was debulked and a ureteric stent was placed. At the time of this writing, 43 months after diagnosis, the patient is receiving FOLFOX chemotherapy combined with panitumumab. CRC of childhood is exceedingly rare, generally develops in the setting of unrecognized genetic predisposing factors to cancer, presents with advanced disease, is high grade, and tends to have dismal prognosis.

  4. Selected case from the Arkadi M. Rywlin International Pathology Slide Series: Mitochondrial myopathy presenting with chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia (CPEO): a case report.


    Bisceglia, Michele; Crociani, Paola; Fogli, Danilo; Centola, Antonio; Galliani, Carlos A; Pasquinelli, Gianandrea


    A 43-year-old female patient diagnosed with chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia (CPEO) because of mitochondrial myopathy documented by muscle biopsy is presented. The chief complaints were represented by blepharoptosis and ophthalmoplegia. The muscle biopsy was evaluated by histology, using the appropriate histochemical and histoenzimological stains. Ragged red fibers with Gomori trichrome stain were seen, which showed cytochrome c oxydase deficiency and abnormal succinate dehydrogenase staining in around 20% of muscle fibres. Electron microscopy was also performed which demonstrated abnormal, hyperplastic, pleomorphic, and hypertrophic mitochondria, characterized by paracrystalline inclusions arranged in parallel rows ("parking-lot" inclusions), consisting of rectangular arrays of mitochondrial membranes in a linear or grid-like pattern. In conclusion, mitochondrial myopathy was definitely diagnosed. Although molecular analysis, which was subsequently carried out, failed to reveal mutations in the mitochondrial DNA or in selected nuclear genes, the pathologic diagnosis was not changed. The differential diagnosis of CPEO with other forms of ocular myopathies as well as the possible association of CPEO with systemic syndromes is discussed. Ophtalmologists and medical internists should always suspect CPEO when dealing with patients affected by ocular myopathy, either in its pure form or in association with other myopathic or systemic signs.

    we have assembled a representative set of papers written by experts with diverse scientific backgrounds, each offering a unique viewpoint on using computational and physics methods to study biological systems at different levels of organization. We start with studies that aim to decipher the mechanisms of molecular recognition using biophysics methods and then expand our scale, concluding the issue with studies of interaction networks at cellular and population levels. Biomolecules interact with each other in a highly specific manner and selectively recognize their partners among hundreds of thousands of other molecules. As the paper by Zhang et al points out, this recognition process should be fast and guided by long-range electrostatic forces that select and bring the interacting partners together. The authors show that the increase of salt concentration leads to destabilization of protein complexes, suggesting an optimization of the charge-charge interactions across the protein binding interfaces. The following paper by Berezovsky further explores the balance of different interactions in protein complexes and uses physical concepts to explain the entire spectrum of protein structural classes, from intrinsically disordered to hyperthermostable proteins. The author describes highly unstructured viral proteins at one end of the spectrum and discusses the balance of stabilizing interactions in protein complexes from thermophilic organisms at the other. Recently accumulated evidence has indicated that native proteins do not necessarily require a unique structure to be biologically active, and in some cases structural disorder or intrinsic flexibility can be a prerequisite for their function. From the physical point of view, these disordered/flexible proteins exist in dynamic equilibrium between different conformational states, some of which could be selected upon binding to another partner. Such a property allows disordered proteins to achieve specific binding and at

  6. Towards a complete Fermi surface in underdoped high Tc superconductors

    Harrison, Neil

    The discovery of magnetic quantum oscillations in underdoped high Tc superconductors raised many questions, and initiated a quest to understand the origin of the Fermi surface the like of which had not been seen since the very first discovery of quantum oscillations in elemental bismuth. While studies of the Fermi surface of materials are today mostly assisted by computer codes for calculating the electronic band structure, this was not the case in the underdoped high Tc materials. The Fermi surface was shown to reconstructed into small pockets, yet there was no hint of a viable order parameter. Crucial clues to understanding the origin of the Fermi surface were provided by the small value of the observed Fermi surface cross-section, the negative Hall coefficient and the small electronic heat capacity at high magnetic fields. We also know that the magnetic fields were likely to be too weak to destroy the pseudogap and that vortex pinning effects could be seen to persist to high magnetic fields at low temperatures. I will show that the Fermi surface that appears to fit best with the experimental observations is a small electron pocket formed by connecting the nodal `Fermi arcs' seen in photoemission experiments, corresponding to a density-wave state with two different orthogonal ordering vectors. The existence of such order has subsequently been detected by x-ray scattering experiments, thereby strengthening the case for charge ordering being responsible for reconstructing the Fermi surface. I will discuss new efforts to understand the relationship between the charge ordering and the pseudogap state, discussing the fate of the quasiparticles in the antinodal region and the dimensionality of the Fermi surface.
