Human nail stem cells are retained but hypofunctional during aging

The nail is a continuous skin appendage. Cells located around the nails, which display coordinated homeostatic dynamics and release a flow of stem cells in response to regeneration, have been identified in mice. However, very few studies regarding human nail stem cells exist in the literature. Using specimens isolated from humans, we detected an unreported population of cells...

Modeling acid-gas generation from boiling chloride brines

BackgroundThis study investigates the generation of HCl and other acid gases from boiling calcium chloride dominated waters at atmospheric pressure, primarily using numerical modeling. The main focus of this investigation relates to the long-term geologic disposal of nuclear waste at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, where pore waters around waste-emplacement tunnels are expected to...

Geophysical monitoring and reactive transport modeling of ureolytically-driven calcium carbonate precipitation

Ureolytically-driven calcium carbonate precipitation is the basis for a promising in-situ remediation method for sequestration of divalent radionuclide and trace metal ions. It has also been proposed for use in geotechnical engineering for soil strengthening applications. Monitoring the occurrence, spatial distribution, and temporal evolution of calcium carbonate precipitation in...

Distinct Mutation Patterns of Breast Cancer-Associated Alleles of the HRAS1 Minisatellite Locus

DNA sequence analysis of 130 alleles of the HfRAS1 minisatellite has demonstrated that breast cancer-associated variants arise as a consequence of both replication errors and gene conversions. Unlike mutations at other variable number of tandem repeats (VNTRs), high-risk variants of the HRAS1 minisatellite do not demonstrate positional polarity. Instead, most mutations occur at...
