Impact of g-Load Shift on Temporal Expression Pattern of Apoptosis-linked Proteins in the Rat Mammary Gland

functionally differentiates during the key postnatal stages of pregnancy and lactation in mammals. The Caspase family of cysteine proteases plays a crucial role in the downstream signaling and execution of the cell death pathway ( Barman et al., 2018 ; Zimmermann et al., 2001 ). Among the Caspases, CC-3 is regarded as the primary mediator of the apoptotic machinery ( Barman et al., 2018 ; Zimmermann et al., 2001 ). Moreover, there is a strong correlation between CC-3 immunostaining intensity and cellular apoptosis ( Arai et al., 2005 ; Bressenot et al., 2009 ). In

Investigation of Murine T-Cells and Cancer Cells under Thermal Stressors and 2D Slow Rotating System Effects as a Testbed for Suborbital Flights

necessary to document all procedures for reproducibility and research integrity purposes. Figure 1 depicts cells before T-cell activation and preparation for thermal and centrifugation testing. T-cell activation is an essential component of the adaptive immune response, mediating many responses including cytokine and antibody production, killing of infected or transformed cells, and tolerance to self-antigens. Therefore, it is critical to have appropriately activated cells. Some indicators of proper T-cell activation include the change of color and the formation of T

Ultrasound mediated synthesis of CuS nanocrystallites


We present a unique ultrasonication based method for the preparation of copper sulphide nanoparticles in ambient air using a single precursor complex, which acts as a source of both metal and sulphur. The nanoparticles of 3.31 nm have been prepared successfully by the method and characterized using powder X-ray diffractogram (PXRD), dynamic light scattering (DLS) analysis UV-Vis spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy. The results proved that copper sulphide nanoparticles of hexagonal structure (covellite phase) can be prepared by sonochemical method within a very short reaction time of ~5 min. The band gap of the nanomaterial has also been calculated from absorption spectrum and was found to be 2.36 eV.

Temperature study of magnetic resonance spectra of co-modified (Co,N)-TiO2 nanocomposites

and other oxide materials could produce RTFM. The proposed model, called the Free Carrier Mediated Exchange Model, explained the FM by the exchange interaction between carriers and the localized spins, i.e. the magnetic property was mediated by the charge carriers of the materials. As this particular model can be applied only to materials having high hole concentration, it is not suitable for low carrier concentration materials, like TiO2. The double exchange mechanism, modelled by Sato et al. [ 9 ], is more suitable in that case. According to this model the
