Conclusions: Our study suggested that incident CHD was positively associated with plasma levels of titanium and arsenic, and inversely associated with selenium. Additional research is needed to confirm these findings in other populations. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1521 Received: 22 December 2016 Revised: 17 September 2017 Accepted: 19 September 2017 Published: 19 October 2017 Address correspondence to T.

The mitotic spindle is composed of dynamic microtubules and associated proteins that together direct chromosome movement during mitosis. The spindle plays a vital role in accurate chromosome segregation fidelity and is a therapeutic target in cancer. Nevertheless, the molecular mechanisms by which many spindle-associated proteins function remains unknown. The nucleolar and spindle-associated protein NUSAP1 is a microtubule-binding protein implicated in spindle stability and chromosome segregation. We show here that NUSAP1 localizes to dynamic spindle microtubules in a unique chromosome-centric pattern, in the vicinity of o...

(Natural News) For years, I’ve warned that humanity is a suicide cult which has engineered its own destruction by relentlessly poisoning the natural world with chemical pesticides, heavy metals and GMOs. Now, the collapse of living systems across the planet is accelerating like never before, with ocean fisheries collapsing by the day, topsoil vanishing by...

Publication date: Available online 18 October 2017 Source:Catalysis Today Author(s): Bertrand Guichard, Florine Gaulier, Jérémie Barbier, Thibaut Corre, Jean-Louis Bonneau, Pierre Levitz, Didier Espinat Refining heavy or extra heavy oil is still an important challenge for petroleum chemistry. The research performed in the field of hydroprocessing technologies covers different sides of the domain laying from the reactor and process aspects to heterogeneous catalysts development. Historically, at a large scale of time, the worldwide trend seems to indicate a decline of light conventional crude oil availability...

Publication date: Available online 18 October 2017 Source:Journal of Energy Chemistry Author(s): Petri Kanninen, Tanja Kallio The effect of irreversibly adsorbed Bi on commercial Pt/C catalyst towards glucose electro-oxidation reaction (GOR) in different electrolytes (acidic, neutral, alkaline) is studied. Bi is successfully deposited on Pt/C from Bi3+ containing acidic solution from 0 to 90% coverage degree. The stability of the Bi layer in acid and alkaline corresponded to previous studies and started to dissolve at 0.7 V and 0.8 V vs reversible hydrogen electrode (RHE), respectively. However, in neutral phosphate buffe...

This report represents the first occupational case of lead poisoning in firing ranges in Korea, and this necessitates institutional management to prevent the recurrence of poisoning through this route. Workplace environmental monitoring should be implemented for indoor firing ranges, and the workers should undergo regularly scheduled special health examinations. In clinical practice, it is essential to question the patient about his occupational history. PMID: 28875619 [PubMed - in process]
