Influence of Particle Size on the Spin Pinning Effect in the fcc-FePt Nanoparticles

In this work, the Fe60Pt40 nanoparticles were synthesized through the chemical reduction method by using the Fe(CO)5 and the Pt(acac)2 as the metallic precursor. The particle size of the synthesized FePt nanoparticles was controlled by adjusting the reaction conditions involving of the Fe(CO)5-injecting temperature and the soak time of reaction. The structure, morphology, and...

Investigation of direct inkjet-printed versus spin-coated ZrO2 for sputter IGZO thin film transistor

In this work, a low leakage current ZrO2 was fabricated for sputter indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) thin-film transistor using direct inkjet-printing technology. Spin-coated and direct inkjet-printed ZrO2 were prepared to investigate the film formation process and electrical performance for different process. Homogeneous ZrO2 films were observed through the high-resolution TEM...

Bacterial outer membrane vesicles, a potential vaccine candidate in interactions with host cells based

Both Gram-Positive and Gram-Negative bacteria can secrete outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) in their growth and metabolism process. Originally, OMVs were considered as a by-product of bacterial merisis. However, many scientists have reported the important role of OMVs in many fields recently. In this review, we briefly introduce OMVs biological functions and then summarize the...

Discrete shear band plasticity through dislocation activities in body-centered cubic tungsten nanowires

Shear band in metallic crystals is localized deformation with high dislocation density, which is often observed in nanopillar deformation experiments. The shear band dynamics coupled with dislocation activities, however, remains unclear. Here, we investigate the dynamic processes of dislocation and shear band in body-centered cubic (BCC) tungsten nanowires via an integrated...

Enhancer of zeste homolog 2-catalysed H3K27 trimethylation plays a key role in acute-on-chronic liver failure via TNF-mediated pathway

Acute-on-chronic liver failure is mainly due to host immunity self-destruction. The histone H3 lysine 27 (H3K27) trimethylating enzyme, enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2) mediates epigenetic silencing of gene expression and regulates immunity, also involves pathogenesis of several liver diseases. The current study was to determine the role of methyltransferase EZH2 and its...

Multi-hop Fast Conflict Resolution Algorithm for Ad Hoc Networks

Media access control is an important technology in ad hoc networks. Based on the multi-hop Pseudo Bayesian (PB) algorithm and the single-hop Fast Conflict Resolution algorithm (FCR), in this paper, we propose a Multi-hop Fast Conflict Resolution (MFCR) algorithm for ad hoc networks. We make the detailed introduction of the theoretical model, the pseudo Bayesian analysis and the...

A Plasmonic Mass Spectrometry Approach for Detection of Small Nutrients and Toxins

Nutriology relies on advanced analytical tools to study the molecular compositions of food and provide key information on sample quality/safety. Small nutrients detection is challenging due to the high diversity and broad dynamic range of molecules in food samples, and a further issue is to track low abundance toxins. Herein, we developed a novel plasmonic matrix-assisted laser...

Numerical Investigation of Fluid Flow and Performance Prediction in a Fluid Coupling Using Large Eddy Simulation

@cbnauil Received 27 December 2016; Revised 22 May 2017; Accepted 9 July 2017; Published 21 August 2017 Academic Editor: Funazaki Ken-ichi Copyright © 2017 Wei Cai et al. This is an open access article

Numerical Investigation of Fluid Flow and Performance Prediction in a Fluid Coupling Using Large Eddy Simulation

Large eddy simulation (LES) with various subgrid-scale (SGS) models was introduced to numerically calculate the transient flow of the hydraulic coupling. By using LES, the study aimed to advance description ability of internal flow and performance prediction. The CFD results were verified by experimental data. For the purpose of the description of the flow field, six subgrid...

The integration of Gβ and MAPK signaling cascade in zygote development

Cells respond to many signals with a limited number of signaling components. Heterotrimeric G proteins and MAPK cascades are universally used by eukaryotic cells to transduce signals in various developmental processes or stress responses by activating different effectors. MAPK cascade is integrated with G proteins by scaffold protein during plant immunity. However, the molecular...

Circulating magnesium levels and incidence of coronary heart diseases, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes mellitus: a meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies

Data on the associations between circulating magnesium (Mg) levels and incidence of coronary heart diseases (CHD), hypertension, and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are inconsistent and inconclusive. The aim of this study was to examine circulating Mg levels in relation to incidence of CHD, hypertension, and T2DM. Prospective cohort studies published before May 2017 were searched...
