Anaerobic transformation of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene by Clostridium acetobutylicum
In this work, rapid TNT ($>$150 mg/L) transformation by Clostridium acetobutylicum via a reductive pathway to monoaminonitrotoluenes, diaminonitrotoluenes, and on to undetectable end products was observed. The maximum ...
Nonlinear model of external respiration
A mathematical model of the external respiratory system is presented which integrates component models of airway mechanics and gas exchange at the pulmonary capillaries. The respiratory system is lumped into: (1) a conducting ...
Flow induced regulation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) gene expression: Role of shear sensitive promoter elements
Vascular endothelium responds to hemodynamic forces such as shear stress by altering the synthesis and genetic expression of several proteins. Shear stress sensitive promoter elements and transcription factors may be ...
Thermophysical property measurements at high temperatures for liquid metal alloys and gadolinium oxide-doped uranium dioxide samples
New techniques for obtaining various thermophysical properties, i.e., densities and incremental enthalpies of selected materials at high temperatures have been developed with emphasis on the utilization of levitation ...
