Relative biological effectiveness of fission neutrons for producing micronuclei in the root-tip cells of onion seedlings after irradiation as dry seeds. (1/14)

The relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of mixed neutron and gamma-ray radiation emitted at a 252Cf source at the Research Institute for Radiation Biology and Medicine, Hiroshima University, compared with 60Co gamma-ray radiation was determined. The tissue-absorbed dose contribution of the accompanying gamma radiation was about 35.7% to the total tissue-absorbed dose from the 252Cf mixed radiation. The 252Cf mixed radiation and 60Co gamma rays produced approximate linear changes in the frequency of micronuclei induced in root-tip cells of Allium cepa L. onion seedlings after irradiation as dry dormant seeds with varying absorbed doses in onion seeds. Therefore, the RBE for radiation-induced micronuclei was calculated as the ratio of the slopes for the 252Cf mixed radiation and the 60Co gamma rays. The deduced RBE value of 252Cf mixed radiation to 60Co gamma rays to induce micronuclei in dry dormant onion seed cells was about 90.5 +/- 3.6 (+/- 1sigma); the RBE of neutrons from the 252Cf mixed radiation was about 150 +/- 6 (+/- 1sigma). Furthermore, the sensitivity ratio of the induction rate of micronuclei in dry dormant seeds to that in seedlings by neutrons from 252Cf mixed radiation was significantly different from that by 60Co gamma rays. From these results, we concluded that the repair efficiency of DNA damage induced by neutrons may be different from that by gamma rays.  (+info)

Carcinogenic effect of in utero 252Cf and 60Co irradiation in C57BL/6N x C3H/He F1 (B6C3F1) mice. (2/14)

C57BL/6N x C3H/He F1 mice were exposed in utero to 0, 1.0 and 2.7 Gy of 252Cf or 60Co at day 16.5th of gestation. Mice of both sexes were observed for 2 years. The females in the irradiated groups showed increases in the incidences of pituitary, mammary gland, liver and lung tumors. 252Cf was more effective in inducing tumors than was 60Co. Interestingly, the incidence of hematopoietic tumors decreased by irradiations with 252Cf but not with 60Co. The incidences of liver tumors in males increased by 252Cf-irradiation, whereas, the incidences of skin and soft tissue tumors increased by 60Co-irradiation. These results indicate that irradiation in utero during the late embryonic stage can induce tumors postnatally after a long latency. Moreover, females irradiated in utero had disfunction of the ovaries, evidence of impairment of the female's specific hormonal environment. This may be the cause of the low incidence of ovarian tumors and the high incidences of liver, lung and pituitary tumors in these female mice. Females with pituitary tumors had a high serum prolactin, which might be responsible for the concurrence of mammary gland tumors. These results indicate the importance of host factors in the development of radiation-induced tumors.  (+info)

252Cf relative biological effectiveness and inheritable effect of fission neutrons in mouse liver tumorigenesis. (3/14)

To determine the relative biological effectiveness of 252Cf fission neutrons versus 60Co gamma-rays for inducing liver tumorigenesis, C57BL/6NCrj x C3H/NCrj F1, hereafter called B6C3F1, mice were irradiated once either with 252Cf or 60Co and the tumorigenicity of the two types of radiation was studied. Individual groups of B6C3F1 mice (about 30 mice/group) were irradiated once with 252Cf at doses of 0, 3, 6, 12.5, 50, and 200 cGy for males and 0, 12.5, 50, and 200 cGy for females or with 60Co at doses of 0, 12.5, 50, and 200 cGy for both sexes. The groups were observed for 13 months after irradiation. The incidence of hepatic tumors in nonirradiated controls was 3.8% in males and 3.2% in females. 252Cf irradiation increased the incidence dose dependently in males and females, but less efficiently in females. The mean number and size of hepatic tumors were well correlated with tumor incidence. In contrast, 60Co was less efficient at inducing tumors. The relative biological effectiveness of 252Cf compared to 60Co was quite high in the low-dose range. Overall, the average relative biological effectiveness of 252Cf versus 60Co was 15.2 in males and 2.5 in females. In another experiment, 7-week-old male C3H mice, which are known to be carriers of hepatic tumorinogens, and that were the fathers of the B6C3F1 mice, were irradiated with 0, 50, and 200 cGy of 252Cf, and 2 weeks later they were mated with nonirradiated female C57BL mice. The control mice had nonirradiated fathers. The incidence of hepatic tumors in the offspring of irradiated fathers was 43% in males and 1.7% in females, whereas in the offspring of control mice with nonirradiated fathers the incidence was 3.2% in males and 3.3% in females. The multiplicity of the hepatic tumors was similar to the tumor incidence. Thus our results indicated a strong hepatocarcinogenic potential for 252Cf neutrons compared to 60Co gamma-rays, and that the cancer-prone genetic trait activated by 252Cf irradiation was inherited by first-generation offspring, especially in males.  (+info)

Analysis of unmodified endotoxin preparations by 252Cf plasma desorption mass spectrometry. Determination of molecular masses of the constituent native lipopolysaccharides. (4/14)

Nine unmodified endotoxin preparations constituted of Re-, Rd-, and Rc-type lipopolysaccharides (2 to 5 glycoses), representing four species of enterobacteria were analyzed by 252Cf plasma desorption mass spectrometry. The constituent lipopolysaccharides were characterized by the ion pair: (M-H)- and its corresponding lipid fragment ion. The lipid fragment ion is produced by cleavage of the glycosidic bond of the 3-deoxy-D-manno-oct-2-ulosonic acid unit that substitutes O-6' of the glucosamin beta 1'-6glucosamine ("lipid A backbone") disaccharide of the lipid A moiety. These lipid fragment ions were identical to the (M-H)- ions seen in the spectra of homologous isolated lipid A preparations that were obtained by hydrolysis (pH 4.5, 100 degrees C) promoted by sodium dodecyl sulfate. Since the molecular components present in the endotoxin preparations analyzed are known, the ion pair (M-H)(-)-lipid fragment ion defines the molecular compositions of each individual lipopolysaccharide. Heterogeneity of the R-type endotoxin preparations analyzed was due almost exclusively to differing lipid A moieties. In three Salmonella minnesota 595 Re endotoxin preparations 10 different lipopolysaccharides were identified, only two of which were common to all three preparations. Of the nine lipopolysaccharides identified in two S. minnesota R7 endotoxin preparations, only two were present in both.  (+info)

Structure of a streptococcal adhesin carbohydrate receptor. (6/14)

Interactions between complementary protein and carbohydrate structures on different genera of human oral bacteria have been implicated in the formation of dental plaque. The carbohydrate receptor on Streptococcus sanguis H1 (one of the primary colonizing species) that is specific for the adhesin on Capnocytophaga ochracea ATCC 33596 (a secondary colonizer) has been isolated from the streptococcal cell wall, purified, and structurally characterized. The hexasaccharide repeating unit of the polysaccharide was purified by reverse-phase, amino-bonded silica, and gel permeation high performance liquid chromatography. Earlier studies established that the repeating unit was a hexasaccharide composed of rhamnose, galactose, and glucose in the ration of 2:3:1, respectively. In the present study, determination of absolute configuration by gas chromatography of the trimethylsilyl (+)-2-butyl glycosides revealed that the rhamnose residues were of the L configuration while the hexoses were all D. 252Californium plasma desorption mass spectrometry of the native, the acetylated and the reduced and acetylated hexasaccharide determined that the molecular mass of the native hexasaccharide was 959, and that the 2 rhamnose residues were linked to each other at the nonreducing terminus of the linear molecule. Methylation analysis revealed the positions of the glycosidic linkages in the hexasaccharide and showed that a galactose residue was present at the reducing end. The structural characterization of the hexasaccharide was completed by one and two dimensional 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. Complete 1H and 13C assignments for each glycosyl residue were established by two-dimensional (1H,1H) correlation spectroscopy, homonuclear Hartmann-Hahn, and (13C,1H) correlation experiments. The configurations of the glycosidic linkages were inferred from the chemical shifts and coupling constants of the anomeric 1H and 13C resonances. The sequence of the glycosyl residues was determined by a heteronuclear multiple bond correlation experiment. These data show that the structure of the hexasaccharide repeating unit derived from the cell wall polysaccharide of S. sanguis H1 is: alpha-L-Rhap-(1----2)-alpha-L-Rhap-(1----3)-alpha-D-Galp- (1----3)-beta-D-Galp-(1----4)-beta-D-Glcp-(1----3)-alpha/beta-D-Gal.  (+info)

Teratogenic effect of californium-252 irradiation in rats. (7/14)

The teratogenicity of californium-252 (Cf-252) irradiation which generates approximately 70% 2.3 MeV fast neutron and 30% gamma rays was evaluated. A single whole body exposure of Cf-252 at various doses was given to pregnant rats on day 8 or 9 of pregnancy, followed by microscopic autopsy of the fetuses at the terminal stage of pregnancy to search for external and internal malformations. For comparison, pregnant rats were irradiated with various doses of cobalt-60 (Co-60) standard gamma rays at the same dose rate (1 rad/min.). The doses were 20-120 rad of Cf-252 and 80-220 rad of Co-60. Using frequency of radiation induced malformations observed on day 8 of pregnancy as an index, relative biological effectiveness (RBE) of 2.3-2.7 was obtained from the straight line obtained by modifying by the least squares method the frequency curves of malformed fetuses in total implants and in surviving fetuses. The types of malformations induced by Cf-252 and Co-60 irradiation were alike. Using fetal LD50 as an index, 2.4 was obtained as RBE when irradiated on day 8 of pregnancy and 3.1 as that when irradiated on day 9. The results showed that Cf-252 had stronger a teratogenic effect than Co-60 gamma rays.  (+info)

Identification of N-glycolylneuraminic acid-containing gangliosides of cat and sheep erythrocytes. 252Cf fission fragment ionization mass spectrometry in the analysis of glycosphingolipids. (8/14)

A number of gangliosides were isolated from cat and sheep erythrocytes for use in analyzing the specificity of a panel of human anti-heterophile monoclonal antibodies. The structures of these compounds were determined by a combination of different procedures, including sugar analysis, glycosidase treatment, periodate oxidation, TLC immunostaining, methylation analysis, and mass spectrometry. These methods identified the cat erythrocytes gangliosides (C1 and C2) as N-glycolylneuraminic acid (NeuGc)-containing hematosides; C1 was shown to be NeuGc alpha 2----8NeuGc alpha 2----3Gal beta I----4Glc-Cer [NeuGc)2GD3) and C2 to be NeuAc alpha 2----8NeuGc alpha 2----3Gal beta 1----4Glc-Cer [NeuAc-NeuGc-)GD3). The two sheep gangliosides (S1 and S2) were found to be novel glycolipids based on the paragloboside sequence; S1 was identified as NeuGc alpha 2----8NeuGc alpha 2----3Gal beta 1----4GlcNAc beta 1----3Gal beta 1----4Glc-Cer [NeuGc)2-disialylparagloboside) and S2 as NeuAc alpha 2----8NeuGc alpha 2----3Gal beta 1----4GlcNAc beta 1----3Gal beta 1----4Glc-Cer [NeuAc-NeuGc-)-disialylparagloboside). Structural analysis of these compounds was aided by the use of 252Cf fission fragment ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry. This method provided easily interpretable spectra on methylated derivatives which were particularly useful in determining the sialic acid composition of the gangliosides and the sequence of their disialosyl side chains.  (+info)

One microgram of 252-Cf emits 2.314 × 10^6 fast neutrons/s with a 2.645-year half-life. Typical costs for loan and return of a ,7μg source total ~$11,000. (This fee is waived under the University Loan Program for university research and teaching applications.) Similar costs for a source in the range of 7μg to 3 mg (neutron intensities ranging up to 7 × 10^9/s ) total ~$20,000, while sources in the 3- to 5-mg range total ~$28,000. Loan/return costs of pre-existing sources from inventory containing ,5 mg total ~$32,000. Sources containing ,8 mg typically require custom fabrication, but a source containing the maximum permitted 252-Cf content of 50 mg (neutron intensity ~10^11/s) can be obtained for ~$51,000. None of these costs include transportation charges. Sources with neutron intensities ,10^8/s can be obtained at lower cost from commercial vendors, but potential costs for end-of-use source disposal should be evaluated. Loan costs for high-intensity sources compare very favorably with ...

In the past, scientists used a stationary neutron source to calibrate the reactor and to make sure it was accurately measuring emitted neutrons, but that doesnt recreate how neutrons actually bounce around. Tossing a lump of californium on the moving train improved the accuracy 10-fold, according to the scientists.. Researchers at Princeton used toy trains for calibration decades ago in an older reactor, but anytime scientists build radioactive trains, people tend to pay attention.. An no, the train didnt glow bright green or gain super powers-californium is only slightly radioactive, after all, and the toy train is now chugging around the Christmas tree in the labs lobby..

These particular particles pass through most measuring systems undetected, but the FNS uses a "gate and capture technique" that slows down neutrons and captures them in special glass fibers loaded with lithium. That process produces a unique flash of light, which custom electronics in the FNS recognize and analyze to determine radiation level. This technology is less susceptible to false triggers from other forms of radiation and can significantly improve reliable identification of neutrons in the mixed radiation field found in deep space. This improved measurement will help protect crews on future exploration missions ...
These conjugates can have the carbohydrate moiety linked directly to the oligonucleotide or can be linked to a lipid or a peptide/protein. Due to the diversity of carbohydrate receptors present on the cells surface, oligosaccharides are useful for targeting conjugates to specific cells. Conjugation of antisense ODNs to a neoglycoprotein in which the protein has several mannose-6-phosphate residues, is readily internalized by cells having a receptor for this ligand on their surfaces. ...
Two assumptions are commonly made in the estimation of genetic risk: (1) that the seven specific loci in the mouse constitute a suitable basis for extrapolation to genetic disease in humans, and (2) that mutations are induced by radiation damage (energy-loss events leading to double-stranded damage) occurring within the gene and are induced linearly with dose, at least at low doses. Recent evidence on the mutability of repeat sequences is reviewed that suggests that neither of these assumptions is as well founded as we like to think. Repeat sequences are common in the human genome, and alterations in them may have health consequences. Many of them are unstable, both spontaneously and after irradiation. The fact that changes in DNA repeat sequences can clearly arise as a result of radiation damage outside the sequence concerned and the likely involvement of some sort of signal transduction process mean that the nature of the radiation dose response cannot be assumed. While the time has not come ...
In the course of this review, my usual carry Glock 19 went off line and needed some small parts replaced. While awaiting replacement, I swapped to my Glock 17. Lo and behold I found myself comfortably carrying the larger gun without much difficulty, and have done so for the last few weeks.. I have successfully concealed the gun in this position from my office staff, patients and hoplophobic wife. Hugs can occur-so long as I am offset a little to the right. The only time I was ever "made" was when one of the kids, whose head is about waist high, ran to sneak attack me with a hug and rang his bell on the chunk of metal on the waistband. God knows what he made of that . . .. AIWB carry has another, far more significant downside: the possibility of shooting oneself during a transition..

The even-even N=90 isotones with Z=60-66 are known to undergo a first order phase transition. Such a phase transition in atomic nuclei is characterized by a sudden change of the shape of the nucleus due to changes in the location of the potential minimum. In these proceedings we report a measurement of the B4/2 ratio of 148Ce, which will probe the location of the low-Z boundary of the N=90 phase transitional region. The measured B4/2 value is compared to the prediction from the X(5) symmetry within the interacting boson model at the critical point between the geometrical limits of vibrators and rigid/axial rotors.

But, running the experiments and collecting the data were not small tasks.. After years of working with the U.S. Department of Energy, Albrecht-Schmitt obtained 5 milligrams of californium costing $1.4 million, paid for through an endowment to the university in honor of retired professor Gregory Choppin.. But that tiny, expensive element has opened a whole new world of nuclear chemistry.. "Were changing how people look at californium and how it can be used," Albrecht-Schmitt said.. All of the experiments were conducted at Florida State, but Albrecht-Schmitt also worked with theorists and scientists from nine universities and institutes, including Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which supplied the californium.. David A. Dixon, professor of chemistry at the University of Alabama, and his graduate student, Ted Garner, provided the calculations and theory on why the californium could bond in such unique ways, while scientists at Argonne National Laboratory helped correlate the theory with the ...

Carbohydrate - receptor interactions are an integral part of biological events. They play an important role in many cellular processes, such as cell-cell adhesion, cell differentiation and in-cell signaling. Carbohydrates can interact with a receptor by using several types of intermolecular interactions. One of the most important is the interaction of a carbohydrates apolar part with aromatic amino acid residues, known as dispersion interaction or CH/π interaction. In the study presented here, we attempted for the first time to quantify how the CH/π interaction contributes to a more general carbohydrate - protein interaction. We used a combined experimental approach, creating single and double point mutants with high level computational methods, and applied both to Ralstonia solanacearum (RSL) lectin complexes with α-l-Me-fucoside. Experimentally measured binding affinities were compared with computed carbohydrate-aromatic amino acid residue interaction energies. Experimental binding affinities for

Our interest in the title compound, C36H27N3O9, arises from its use as an important precursor in the synthesis of artificial receptors based on trimethoxybenzene-derived core (for a review on acyclic carbohydrate receptors containing a trimethyl- or triethylbenzene scaffold, see: Mazik, 2009). The title compound crystallizes in the space group P-1 with one molecule in the asymmetric part of the unit cell. The interplanar angles between the phthalimido residues are 6.67 (4) (B/C), 48.86 (3) (B/D) and 53.23 (3)° (C/D). According to the three-dimensional arrangement of substituents around the benzene ring the present conformational isomer can be named 1-up, 3,5-down tris(phthalimidomethyl), 2,4-up, 6-down- trimethoxybenzene. The molecular conformation is stabilized by seven C-H···O hydrogen bonds (Desiraju, 2002; Desiraju & Steiner, 1999; Mazik et al., 2001; Steiner, 2002) with phthalimido O atoms O(4), O(7), O(8), O(9) and the ether O atoms O(2), O(3) acting as acceptors [C-H···Ophthal 2.38 ...

This invention relates to a method of forming a selectively perforate membrane suitable for high resolution screen printing by homogeneously irradiating a sheet of synthetic resin, e.g., a polycarbonate resin, with heavy fission fragments whereupon the sheet is selectively irradiated in an oxygen atmosphere with electromagnetic radiation less than 4,000A (or a high intensity electron beam) to enhance the etch rate of those damage tracks lying within the electromagnetically irradiated area of the sheet. Apertures less than 200A in diameter then are etched through the sheet in areas of dual irradiation whereupon etching is abruptly terminated and the sheet is annealed at a temperature above 80 DEG C to obliterate fission track damage. The selectively apertured sheet then is etched again to enlarge the apertures to a diameter between 1,000A and 100,000A.

By Reta McDermott. Christopher Brav from the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford will present "Ping-Pong and Thin Monodromy" at 2:30 p.m. today in 122 Cardwell Hall. Abstract: Monodromy groups of low order hypergeometric differential equations have been well understood since the 19th century, with the examples arising in algebraic geometry typically being "arithmetic." While some general results about monodromy groups of higher order equations have been known for over 20 years, many basic questions remain open.. Brav will discuss joint work with Hugh Thomas that gives the first examples of nonarithmetic or "thin" monodromy groups of higher rank arising in algebraic geometry. More precisely, Brav and Thomas use the ping-pong lemma of Fricke and Klein to show that the monodromy groups of certain one-parameter families of Calabi-Yau manifolds split as free products and then apply a cohomological criterion to deduce that the groups are not arithmetic.. ...

Biophysical models are the analytical tools by which the effects of radiation may be interpreted, allowing assessment and prediction of the effects of low dose radiation. Many developments have taken place in modelling since the 1980s. This volume is a review of the current state of radiation effect modelling, as discussed by scientists at an international workshop held in Padua, Italy in September 1991. Research on existing models and data sets used to test different models are described in detail. The applications of models to radiation biology and radiological protection are reviewed, as are recent developments in the modelling of the carcinogenic process. The interaction of mixed radiation, trace theory and the effects of radiation on DNA are also considered. The book should be of interest to radiation biophysicsts and biologists, medical physicists and others involved in radiological therapy and protection.

Steve Jobs would have loved this band. Capsulas songs are perfect for any Apple product rollout: a quick burst, exhilarating and different - but not too different. Capsula sounds like a lot of other things youve heard by now, but in a way thats hard to pin down. Not unlike Mr. Jobss revolution, Capsula is manufactured from a lot of parts made by other bands, in this case such high-energy acts as the Strokes or the Hives or the Vines, or the Who or Sonic Youth. "What we try to do is pick different sounds from different periods of time that we like," Coni Duchess says by phone from somewhere on the road between Nashville and Atlanta. "We dont belong to any particular scene.". But the guitar in Capsula is superior, I think, considering that most American indie-rockers rarely solo.

As part of its contribution to the Manhattan Project, Canada built and operated a 1,000 pounds (450 kg) to 1,200 pounds (540 kg) per month (design capacity) electrolytic heavy water plant at Trail, British Columbia, which started operation in 1943.[60] The Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) design of power reactor requires large quantities of heavy water to act as a neutron moderator and coolant. AECL ordered two heavy water plants, which were built and operated in Atlantic Canada at Glace Bay, Nova Scotia (by Deuterium of Canada Limited) and Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia (by General Electric Canada). These plants proved to have significant design, construction and production problems. Consequently, AECL built the Bruce Heavy Water Plant (44°11′07″N 81°21′42″W / 44.1854°N 81.3618°W / 44.1854; -81.3618 (Bruce Heavy Water Plant)),[61] which it later sold to Ontario Hydro, to ensure a reliable supply of heavy water for future power plants. The two Nova Scotia plants were ...
This pilot study will assess the feasibility of using heavy water as a safe tracer for biomarker studies of diseases of the brain and spinal cord, that, together, are also called the central nervous system (CNS). Heavy water, also called deuterated water or D20, is the same as normal drinking water except the hydrogen atoms have been replaced by deuterium, a naturally occurring isotope of hydrogen. In particular, this study will use heavy water to define: 1) The rate of immune cell proliferation (growth) in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) compared to blood. This study will be examining a particular type of immune cell called T lymphocytes. 2) This study will also examine selected molecules generated by nerve cells of the CNS to understand their rate of secretion and turnover in healthy control participants, HIV-1-infected participants and participants with a non-HIV-related neurodegenerative disease such as Parkinsons disease (PD).. This study will involve the administration of heavy water ...

Originally released in 1977, Dialoghi Del Presente represents a truly unique approach to music making where each instrument and each sound are given ample time and space to develop. For the recording sessions leading to this remarkable work Luciano Cilio took up a role as multi-instrumentalist, performing on piano, guitar, flute, bass and mandola, also joined by musicians coming from different experiences and areas, who supply strings, extra woodwind and percussion. Almost impossible to define, the all-acoustic music of Cilio occupies a space between the devotional music of Popol Vuhs Florian Fricke and the deep spiritual places of what would later be called holy minimalism (without any of the religious intents of the afore-mentioned references), with a surprising anticipation of the crystalline sparseness of pieces like Fur Alina by Arvo Part, and a feeling of intense suspension of time that can be associated to some of the most intimate compositions of Ligeti or Morton Feldman, yet maintaining a

Part I. Field desorption (FD) mass spectra have been obtained from a series of alkali metal cryptates formed from {2.2.2}-, {2.2.1}- and {2.1.1}-cryptands with Li(+), Na(+) and K(+) salts of Cl(-), Br(-), I(-), OTs(-) and BPh(,4)(-). Stabilities of these complexes under FD conditions are compared with their thermodynamic stabilities in solution. Differences in these stabilities are attributed to the lack of solvation of ions under FD conditions. A marked anion effect is also observed in FD spectra. This effect is correlated with the recombination energy of the released cation and anion in the gaseous state. Part II. Acid phthalates from isomeric alicyclic alcohols have been studied by field desorption (FD) and electron impact (EI) mass spectrometry. Isomeric acid phthalates gave identical FD spectra and EI spectra. The use of these methods for distinguishing stereoisomers of this type thus proved to be unsuccessful. However, the field ionization (FI) spectra of cis- and trans-4-t-butylcyclohexyl

Abstract: Secondary neutrons are a main source of stray and leakage radiation outside treatment fields in proton radiotherapy and therefore, pose a risk to patients for the development of second cancers. In addition, the nozzle components of the proton therapy unit remain "hot" some time after the treatment and induce time-dependent decays from mixed neutron/gamma-ray fields, which potentially put radiation therapists at risk for excessive cumulative dose exposures post treatment. The accuracy of the nuclear physics model used to predict stray neutron fields in proton radiotherapy is not clearly understood. The Tool for Particle Simulation (TOPAS) was used to calculate the therapeutic absorbed dose and neutron spectral fluence from a proton treatment unit using three nuclear physics models: the Bertini model, the Binary Cascade model and the INCL4/ABLA model. TOPAS is based on the platform of the Geant4 Monte Carlo Toolkit (version 9.6). The purpose of this research is to compare and quantify ...

In 1911, the Vemork hydroelectric station in Rjukan started exploiting the tremendous power in the waters that flow from the mighty Hardangervidda down into the narrow Vestfjord valley. Norsk Hydro, Norway s great industrial adventure, was born here, among the perilous cliffs and deep gorges. Late in 1938, Lise Meitner, Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassman discovered the phenomenon of atomic fission. Physicists everywhere realized that if chain reactions could be tamed, fission could lead to a promising new source of power. What was needed was a substance that could "moderate" the energy of neutrons emitted in radioactive decay, so that they could be captured by other fissionable nuclei. Heavy water was a prime candidate for the job. Allied forces were determined to stop Nazi Germany from developing the atomic bomb. Of two materials to control a nuclear reaction -- pure graphite and heavy water -- the Germans chose heavy water because of a mathematical error in calculating the use of graphite. The ...

Background and purpose: To determine the influence of the number of fractions (or the dose per fraction) on the proton relative biological effectiveness (RBE). Materials and methods: Intestinal crypt regeneration in mice was used as the biological endpoint. RBE was determined relative to cobalt-60 gamma rays for irradiations in one, three and ten fractions separated by a time interval of 3.5 h. Proton irradiations were performed at the middle of a 7-cm Spread Out Bragg Peak (SOBP). Results: Proton RBEs (and corresponding gamma dose per fraction) at the level of 20 regenerated crypts per circumference were found equal to 1.15 ± 0.04 (10.0 Gy), 1.15 ± 0.05 (4.8 Gy) and 1.14 ± 0.07 (1.7 Gy) for irradiations in one, three and ten fractions, respectively. Alpha/beta ratios as derived from direct analysis of the quantal radiation response data were found to be 7.6 Gy for gamma rays and 8.2 Gy for protons. Additional proton irradiations in ten fractions at the end of the SOBP were found to be more ...
The effects of irradiation with gamma rays and protons on HTB140 human melanoma cell morphology and viability were analyzed. Exponentially growing cells were irradiated close to the Bragg peak maximum of the 62-MeV proton beam, as well as with (60)Co gamma rays, with doses ranging from 8 to 24 Gy. The overall cell morphology was unchanged 6 and 48 h after gamma irradiation, also showing a relatively weak cell-inactivation level. After exposure to proton beam, considerable changes in cell morphology followed by stronger cell inactivation were achieved. Proliferation capacity of irradiated cells significantly decreased in both experimental set-ups. Higher ionization level of protons with respect to gamma rays, representing the main physical difference between these two types of radiation, was also revealed on the cell membrane level through larger pro-apoptotic capacity of protons ...
Tumor radioresistance leading to local therapy failure remains a major obstacle for successful treatment of high-grade glioma. We hypothesized that distinct radiobiological features of particle therapy with carbon ions may circumvent glioma radioresistance. We demonstrate that carbon irradiation (CIR) efficiently eradicates radioresistant patient-derived glioma stem cells (GSCs), leading to growth inhibition and prolonged survival. The impact of CIR at the tumor-stroma interface was further investigated in 2 syngeneic mouse and 2 orthotopic GSC xenograft models. Intriguingly, tumor regressions and long-term local controls were observed at doses greater than or equal to 15-Gy CIR. Fractionated CIR further prolonged survival. The enhanced relative biological effectiveness of CIR in vivo was attributed to its potent antiangiogenic effects and eradication of radioresistant hypoxic tumor cells. Blockade of the HIF1-α/stromal cell-derived factor 1/CXCR4 axis by CIR reduced the recruitment of ...

We analyzed the applicability of high-resolution 2H-HMR spectroscopy for the analysis of microbe metabolism in samples of mitochondrion isolated from rat liver and from aqueous extracts of homogenates of rat liver and other organs and tissues in the presence of high D2O contents. Such analysis is possible due to the fast microbe adaptation to life in the heavy water. It is also shown that some enzymatic processes typical for the intact cells are preserved in the homogenized tissue preparations. The microbial and cellular metabolic processes can be differentiated via the strategic use of cell poisons and antibiotics.
I include this compound because I used D2O (deuterated or heavy water) back as an undergraduate for isotope labeling experiments. My undergraduate advisor used to tell me that if you drank enough of it, it would kill you. Apparently he was correct, although you would have to work really hard to get your body deuterated enough to have an effect. If you can replace between 25 and 50% of the water in your body with D2O, then youll notice the health effects, but this will require the drinking of nothing but large quantities of D2O for at least a week according to Wikipedia. The poisoning mechanism is pretty simple. Deuterium has slightly different hydrogen bonding properties than hydrogen (which is why we use D2O in the lab in the first place). Our bodies consist of large number of proteins, including DNA, which depend upon hydrogen bonding to hold them in the rather complicated conformations which are necessary for certain enzymatic reactions to occur. Start changing the hydrogen bonding in our ...
Proton beam therapy (PBT) has emerged as an important advance in radiation therapy, particularly for children and young adults. Although there are data supporting equivalent rates of cure using equivalent doses of proton versus photon treatments, the decreased dose to nearby OARs and substantial reduction of irradiated tissue volume is a promising strategy to address acute and late injury to normal tissues from therapy [1]. Additionally, a matched pair analysis [2] supports a range from no difference to fewer second malignancies in patients treated with protons versus photon therapy. Similar data comparing photon CSI to proton CSI from multiple institutions also suggests a clear correlation of irradiated volume to risk of second malignancy [3-6].. Increased tissue effects at the end of the spread out Bragg Peak (SOBP) is a defined, measured biologic phenomenon [7-10]. The potential for unintentional tissue injury due to putative increased relative biological effectiveness (RBE) at the distal ...

Haploid callus cultures of selected races of Lycopersicon (tomato) species can be obtained from anther culture. This is a further demonstration of a proposed general method of haploid culture developed with Arabidopsis thaliana. Differentiation of haploid callus of Lycopersicon esculentum can be controlled both in the dark and the light by hormones added to defined minimal media. Development to plantlets is achieved only in the light. Callus cells can be induced to develop into seedless pseudo-fruits. Chromosome counts on callus cells or root-tip cells establishes haploidy (n=12). Haploidy can be maintained in culture on defined minimal media for at least one year.

Introduction to the PlatyhelminthesIntroduction to the Platyhelminthes

Flatworms were once divided into three groups. The mostly free-living Turbellaria include the planarian, Dugesia, shown above; these are found in the oceans, in fresh water, and in moist terrestrial habitats, and a few are parasitic. The Trematoda, or flukes, are all parasitic, and have complex life cycles specialized for parasitism in animal tissues. Members of one major taxon of flukes, the Digenea -- which includes the human lung fluke depicted at right -- pass through a number of juvenile stages that are parasitic in one, two, or more intermediate hosts before reaching adulthood, at which time they parasitize a definitive host. The Cestoda, or tapeworms, are intestinal parasites in vertebrates, and they also show anatomical and life history modifications for parasitism. It now seems likely that the first two of these groups are paraphyletic; that is, they contain some but not all descendants of a common ancestor. Recent molecular studies suggest that the Platyhelminthes as a whole may even ...

Introduction to the CtenophoraIntroduction to the Ctenophora

Although most ctenophores swim, one group creeps along the bottom of the seas. Most of these species live on other animals, for instance with echinoderms, sponges, or benthic cnidarians. Many ctenophores, like various other planktonic organisms, are bioluminescent, able to give off light.. Until fairly recently, no fossil ctenophores were known. Like most pelagic cnidarians, the bodies of ctenophores are made up mostly of water, and the chances of leaving a recognizable fossil are very slim. Two species of fossil ctenophore have now been found in the Late Devonian, in the famous Hunsrückscheifer slates of southern Germany (Stanley and Stürmer, 1983, 1987). Both owe their preservation to rapid precipitation of pyrite in the tissues, and both are quite similar to living ctenophores in the order Cydippida (the "sea gooseberries.") Other ctenophore-like forms have been found in the Cambrian-age Burgess Shale of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and Chengjiang Formation of Southern China. These forms ...
