Central nervous system (CNS) TB includes clinical entities: tuberculous meningitis, intracranial tuberculoma, and clinical features of CNS TB in the elderly may be atypical, non-specific, and confused with concomitant age-related diseases. Atypical clinical manifestations of TB in older persons can result in delay in diagnosis and initiati...

In this study, we isolated and identified the dominant bacteria Pseudomonas, and we also researched the antibacterial effect and mechanism of antibacterial substance against Pseudomonas. The dominant bacteria Pseudomonas was isolated from spoiled chicken breast meat and identified as Pseudomonas putida. The result showed that the Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of antibacterial substance against Pseudomonas putida was 12.5 mg/mL. The Propidium iodide (PI) infiltration experiments and leakage of potassium ions indicated the antimicrobial substance could increase the permeability of the bacterial cell membrane. Scan...

All doped compositions of LaFeO3 were synthesised by sol-gel method. Structural studies show the formation of secondary oxide phases when calcined at 800 °C and phase pu...

Daurelio, Luis EstebanAbstractRenal and extrarenal production of the active form of vitamin D, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D), is catalyzed by CYP27B1, an enzyme also called 1-α-hydroxylase. The overproduction of 1,25(OH)2D has been described in granulomatous diseases. High circulating concentrations of 1,25(OH)2D can lead to hypercalcemia. The aim of this work was to characterize the transcriptional regulation of CYP27B1 in human mononu...

Carbon-based materials are perceived as one of the most prospective PIBs anode materials due to their rational intercalation capacity and abundant resources. However, their intercalation chemistry reaction involving potassium intercalation/deintercalation can lead to a large irreversible volume change of ano...

The catalyst exhibited a higher catalytic activity than that prepared by the common co-precipitation method at 90 °C. In addition, the catalytic performance of the Y2O3-Co3O4 catalyst was further enhanced by K-promoter, which might be related to the weakening of CoO bond and higher concentration of adsorb...
