: Acute symptomatic seizures are seizures closely related to neurological or systemic insults and represent about 40% of all first seizures. Diagnosis may be difficult to perform due to the subjectivity involved in recognizing the severity of insult needed to provoke epileptic seizures or in determining a clear temporal relationship. ...

This study examines the two ways of enhancement of aggregation of hydrophobically modified (HM) chitosan in dilute aqueous solutions: by increasing content of n-dodecyl substituents favoring the hydrophobic association and by increasing amount of added low molecular weight salt screening the electrostatic repulsion between similarly charged aggregating chains. By static ...

Density functional theory and quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics computations predict cob(I)alamin (Co(+)Cbx), a universal B(12) intermediate state, to be a pentacoordinated square pyramidal complex, which is different from the most widely accepted viewpoint of its tetracoordinated square planar geometry. The square pyramidality of Co(+)Cbx is inspired by the fact that a ...

Recent research reveals that playing prosocial video games increases prosocial cognitions and helpful behaviors [Gentile el al., 2009; Greitemeyer and Osswald, 2009; 2010; 2011]. These results are consistent with social-cognitive models of social behavior [e.g., the "General Learning Model," Buckley and Anderson, 2006]. The social-cognitive learning models suggest that in ...

Addition of O(2) enables the liquid-phase hydrogenation of phenol using H(2) at low temperatures under atmospheric pressure with an unexpected selectivity towards 2-cyclohexene-1-one rather than cyclohexanone. As a catalyst, as-synthesized Pd/MCM-41 including the residual templates within the mesoporous channels exhibits a prominent positive effect on the catalytic performance.

Osteoclasts are differentiated from hematopoietic stem cells and become multinucleated giant cells through cell-fusion by a number of regulators. Among such regulators, transcription factors play pivotal roles by reorganizing gene networks. Recently, epigenetic regulators like histone modifiers and chromatin remodelers have emerged to be prerequisite for gene regulations by transcriptional ...
