The Effect of U Atom Adsorption on the Structural, Electronic and Magnetic Properties of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

We investigate the structural, electronic and magnetic properties of three types of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs, zigzag, armchair and chiral) with adsorption of a uranium (U) atom using density-functional theories. Structural analysis shows that the site on the top of the hexagonal ring is the most stable for the U atom adsorption on all the three types of SWNTs. Upon...

A Novel Supra-Brow Combined with Infra-Brow Lift Approach for Asian Women

Background Direct brow lift surgery remains popular among Asian women despite its disadvantages. The traditional direct brow lift by a supra-brow incision is not suitable for Asian women because of their unique facial features, such as higher eyebrows, wider upper eyelids, and more orbital fat. Therefore, we designed a novel brow lift technique via a supra-brow combined with an...

MiR-129-2 functions as a tumor suppressor in glioma cells by targeting HMGB1 and is down-regulated by DNA methylation

MicroRNA (miRNA) dysregulation is causally related to cancer development and progression, and recent reports have revealed that DNA methylation constitutes an important mechanism for miRNA deregulation in cancer. MiR-129-2 has been reported to be down-regulated and functions as a tumor suppressor in a few human cancers. However, the involvement of miR-129-2 in the pathology of...

Characterization of ornithine and glutamine lipids extracted from cell membranes of Rhodobacter sphaeroides

The identification and structural characterization of a series of ornithine lipids extracted from the cell membranes of wild-type Rhodobacter sphaeroides, as well as from a glycerophosphocholine-deficient strain, have been achieved by multistage tandem mass spectrometry of their protonated and deprotonated precursor ions in a linear quadrupole ion trap. Systematic examination of...

Neuromuscular block with vecuronium reduces the rapidly extracted auditory evoked potentials index during steady state anesthesia

PurposeDuring clinical monitoring, vecuronium appeared to reduce the rapidly extracted auditory evoked potentials index (A-line ARX index or AAI) to some extent. A prospective and randomized study was designed to analyze this phenomenon.MethodsForty adult patients undergoing elective surgery were studied. After tracheal intubation, anesthesia was maintained with an end-tidal...
