Calorimetric studies on the stability of the ribosome-inactivating protein abrin II: effects of pH and ligand binding. (1/2195)

The effects of pH and ligand binding on the stability of abrin II, a heterodimeric ribosome-inactivating protein, and its subunits have been studied using high-sensitivity differential scanning calorimetry. At pH7.2, the calorimetric scan consists of two transitions, which correspond to the B-subunit [transition temperature (Tm) 319.2K] and the A-subunit (Tm 324.6K) of abrin II, as also confirmed by studies on the isolated A-subunit. The calorimetric enthalpy of the isolated A-subunit of abrin II is similar to that of the higher-temperature transition. However, its Tm is 2.4K lower than that of the higher-temperature peak of intact abrin II. This indicates that there is some interaction between the two subunits. Abrin II displays increased stability as the pH is decreased to 4.5. Lactose increases the Tm values as well as the enthalpies of both transitions. This effect is more pronounced at pH7.2 than at pH4.5. This suggests that ligand binding stabilizes the native conformation of abrin II. Analysis of the B-subunit transition temperature as a function of lactose concentration suggests that two lactose molecules bind to one molecule of abrin II at pH7.2. The presence of two binding sites for lactose on the abrin II molecule is also indicated by isothermal titration calorimetry. Plotting DeltaHm (the molar transition enthalpy at Tm) against Tm yielded values for DeltaCp (change in excess heat capacity) of 27+/-2 kJ.mol-1.K-1 for the B-subunit and 20+/-1 kJ.mol-1.K-1 for the A-subunit. These values have been used to calculate the thermal stability of abrin II and to surmise the mechanism of its transmembrane translocation.  (+info)

Expression and characterization of the intact N-terminal domain of streptokinase. (2/2195)

Proteolytic studies have enabled two of the three putative domains of the fibrinolytic protein streptokinase to be isolated and characterized (Conejero-Lara F et al., 1996, Protein Sci 5:2583-2591). The N-terminal domain, however, could not be isolated in these experiments because of its susceptibility to proteolytic cleavage. To complete the biophysical characterization of the domain structure of streptokinase we have overexpressed, purified, and characterized the N-terminal region of the protein, residues 1-146. The results show this is cooperatively folded with secondary structure content and overall stability closely similar to those of the equivalent region in the intact protein.  (+info)

The effects of hydrostatic pressure on ribosome conformation in Escherichia coli: and in vivo study using differential scanning calorimetry. (3/2195)

Differential scanning calorimetry of whole Escherichia coil cells allowed the detection in vivo of changes in ribosome conformation. This enabled for the first time an analysis of the effects of high hydrostatic pressures on ribosomes in living cells. A correlation was observed between loss of cell viability and decrease in ribosome-associated enthalpy in cells subjected to pressures of 50-250 MPa for 20 min. Cell death and ribosome damage were therefore closely related phenomena. In pressure-treated cells, the thermogram peak temperatures decreased, suggesting that the remaining ribosomes had adopted a less stable conformation. During subsequent incubation of the cultures at 37 degrees C, peak temperatures and enthalpies gradually increased over a period of 5 h. This change in ribosome conformation had no apparent effect on cell survival, as viability continued to decrease. The addition of 5 mM MgCl2 before pressure treatment of cells prevented the reduction in stability of surviving ribosomes but had no effect on the initial loss of enthalpy or on cell viability.  (+info)

Glycosylation of asparagine-28 of recombinant staphylokinase with high-mannose-type oligosaccharides results in a protein with highly attenuated plasminogen activator activity. (4/2195)

The properties of recombinant staphylokinase (SakSTAR) expressed in Pichia pastoris cells have been determined. The single consensus N-linked oligosaccharide linkage site in SakSTAR (at Asn28 of the mature protein) was occupied in approximately 50% of the expressed protein with high-mannose-type oligosaccharides. The majority of these glycans ranged in polymerization state from Man8GlcNAc2 to Man14GlcNAc2, with the predominant species being Man10GlcNAc2 and Man11GlcNAc2. Glycosylated SakSTAR (SakSTARg) did not differ from its aglycosyl form in its aggregation state in solution, its thermal denaturation properties, its ability to form a complex with human plasmin (hPm), the amidolytic properties of the respective SakSTAR-hPm complexes, or its ability to liberate the amino-terminal decapeptide required for formation of a functional SakSTAR-hPm plasminogen activator complex. However, this latter complex with SakSTARg showed a greatly reduced ability to activate human plasminogen (hPg) as compared with the same complex with the aglycosyl form of SakSTAR. We conclude that glycosylation at Asn28 does not affect the structural properties of SakSTAR or its ability to participate in the formation of an active enzymatic complex with hPm, but it is detrimental to the ability of the SakSTAR-hPm complex to serve as a hPg activator. This is likely due to restricted access of hPg to the active site of the SakSTARg-hPm complex.  (+info)

Hydrocarbon chain packing and the effect of ethanol on the thermotropic phase behavior of mixed-chain phosphatidylglycerols. (5/2195)

Previous studies in this laboratory have delineated the relationship between the acyl chain asymmetry of mixed-chain phosphatidylcholines and the effect of ethanol concentration ([EtOH]) on their melting behavior (Li et al., Biophys J., 70 (1996) 2784-2794). This present investigation extends these findings to another phospholipid family by using high-resolution differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) to characterize the effect of ethanol concentration on the main phase transition temperature (Tm) of five molecular species of mixed-chain phosphatidylglycerol (PG). For C(14):C(18)PG, C(15):C(17)PG, C(16):C(16)PG, and C(17):C(15)PG, a biphasic profile in the Tm versus [EtOH] plot was observed, and the minimum in the plot for each PG occurred at 33, 15, 19, and 36 mg/ml, respectively. This biphasic behavior is typical of phospholipids whose acyl chain asymmetry is fairly small. For C(18):C(14)PG, only a linear decrease in the Tm was observed as a function of ethanol concentration; this effect is characteristic of highly asymmetric phospholipids. Our DSC results obtained with mixed-chain PG in the presence of ethanol demonstrate that the acyl chain asymmetry of the five lipids studied can be ranked as follows: C(15):C(17)PG+info)

Thermotropic phase behavior of mixed-chain phosphatidylglycerols: implications for acyl chain packing in fully hydrated bilayers. (6/2195)

In this communication we report the first systematic investigation of the thermodynamic properties of fully hydrated mixed-chain phosphatidylglycerols (PG) using high-resolution differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The crystal structure of dimyristoylphosphatidylglycerol shows an acyl chain conformation that is nearly opposite to that of phosphatidylcholine (PC). In PC, the sn-1 chain is straight while the sn-2 chain contains a bend; for PG, the sn-1 contains a bend while the sn-2 chain is in the all-trans conformation (R.H. Pearson, I. Pascher, The molecular structure of lecithin dihydrate, Nature, 281 (1978) 499-501; I. Pascher, S. Sundell, K. Harlos, H. Eibl, Conformational and packing properties of membrane lipids: the crystal structure of sodium dimyristoylphosphatidylglycerol, Biochim. Biophys. Acta, 896 (1987) 77-88). If the structure of PG found in the single crystal can be extrapolated to that in the fully hydrated gel-state bilayer, the observed difference in acyl chain conformations implies that modulation of the acyl chain asymmetry will have an opposite effect on the thermotropic phase behavior of PG and PC. For example, it is expected, based on the crystal structures, that C(15):C(13)PG should have a higher main phase transition temperature (Tm) than C(14):C(14)PG, and C(13):C(15)PG should have a lower Tm than C(14):C(14)PG. However, our DSC studies show clearly that the expectation is not borne out by experimental data. Rather, the Tm values of C(15):C(13)PG, C(14):C(14)PG, and C(13):C(15)PG are 18.2 degrees C, 23.1 degrees C, and 24.4 degrees C, respectively. Several other PGs, each with a unique acyl chain composition, have also been studied in this laboratory using high-resolution DSC. It is shown that the acyl chain conformation of fully hydrated PG in general is nearly opposite to that seen in the PG crystal structure.  (+info)

An ordered metastable phase in hydrated phosphatidylethanolamine: the Y-transition. (7/2195)

By using time-resolved X-ray diffraction, differential scanning calorimetry and scanning densitometry, we observed rapid formation at low temperature of a metastable ordered phase, termed LR1 phase, in fully hydrated dihexadecylphosphatidylethanolamine (DHPE). The LR1 phase has the same lamellar repeat period as the gel Lbeta phase but differs from the latter in its more ordered, orthorhombic hydrocarbon chain arrangement. It forms at about 12 degrees C upon cooling and manifests itself as splitting of the sharp, symmetric wide-angle X-ray peak of the DHPE gel phase into two reflections. This transition, designated the 'Y-transition', is readily reversible and proceeds with almost no hysteresis between cooling and heating scans. Calorimetrically, the LR1-->Lbeta transition is recorded as a low-enthalpy (0.2 kcal/mol) endothermic event. The formation of the LR1 phase from the gel phase is associated with a small, about 2 microl/g, decrease of the lipid partial specific volume recorded by scanning densitometry, in agreement with a volume calculation based on the X-ray data. The formation of the equilibrium Lc phase was found to take place from within the LR1 phase. This appears to be the only observable pathway for crystallisation of DHPE upon low-temperature incubation. Once formed, the Lc phase of this lipid converts directly into Lbeta phase at 50 degrees C, skipping the LR1 phase. Thus, the LR1 phase of DHPE can only be entered by cooling of the gel Lbeta phase. The data disclose certain similarities between the low-temperature polymorphism of DHPE and that of long-chain normal alkanes.  (+info)

Thermodynamics of the reconstitution of tuna cytochrome c from two peptide fragments. (8/2195)

Two peptide fragments from tuna cytochrome c (cyt c), N-fragment (residues 1-44 containing the heme) and C-fragment (residues 45-103), combine to form a 1:1 fragment complex. This was clearly proved by ion-spray mass spectrometry. It was found from CD and NMR spectra that the structure of the fragment complex formed is similar to that of an intact cyt c, although each isolated fragment itself is unstructured. Binding constants and enthalpies upon the complex formation were directly observed by isothermal titration calorimetry. Thermodynamic parameters (deltaG(o)b, deltaHb, deltaS(o)b, and deltaC(b)p)) associated with the complex formation were determined at various pHs and temperatures. DeltaHb was found to be almost independent of pH values. The change in heat capacity accompanying the complex formation (deltaC(b)p) was directly determined from the temperature dependence of deltaHb. In addition, the change in heat capacity and enthalpy upon tuna cyt c unfolding were determined by differential scanning calorimetry. Thermodynamic parameters for the unfolding/dissociation process of the fragment complex were compared with those for cyt c unfolding at pH 3.9 and 303 K. In a comparison of two unfolding processes, the heat capacity change of each was very close to the other, while both the unfolding enthalpy and entropy of the fragment complex were larger than those of tuna cyt c. These thermodynamic data suggest that the internal interactions between polar groups (hydrogen bonding) and nonpolar groups (van der Waals interactions) are preserved in the fragment complex as well as in the native state of cyt c.  (+info)

We investigated the thermotropic phase behavior of the distearoylphosphatidylcholine (DSPC)-cholesterol binary bilayer membrane as a function of the cholesterol composition (X(ch)) by fluorescence spectroscopy using 6-propionyl-2-(dimethylamino)naphthalene (Prodan) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The fluorescence spectra, each of which has a single maximum, showed that the wavelength at the maximum intensity (lambda(max)) changed depending on the bilayer state: ca. 440 nm for the lamellar gel (L(beta) or L(beta)) and the liquid ordered (L(o)) phases, ca. 470 nm for the ripple gel (P(beta)) phase and ca. 490 nm for the liquid crystalline (L(alpha)) phase, respectively. The transition temperatures were determined from the temperature dependences of the lambda(max) and endothermic peaks of the DSC thermograms. Both measurements showed that the pretransition disappears around X(ch)=0.035. The constructed temperature-X(ch) phase diagram indicated that the phase behavior of the binary ...
Wet milling by a multi-ring media mill was carried out for aqueous slurries of Mg(OH)2 and TiO2 powder mixtures in the concentration range from 6.9 to 50 wt%. Rings used as grinding media were made of partially stabilized zirconia or polyoxymethylene. Products were characterized by thermogravimetry-differential thermal analysis, X-ray diffractometry and EPMA. ZrO2 contamination in the product was determined by X-ray flurescence analysis. The temperature of endothermic peaks of dehydration remained almost unchanged regardless of slurry concentration but decreased with increasing compressive force exerted by grinding rings. The homogeneity of the product is correlated with the temperature of exothermic peaks above 1100 K due to the crystallization of MgTiO3, but not with the endothermic peaks around 650 K. The increase of the slurry concentration increases the homogeneity of the product, facilitating the formation of single-phase MgTiO3 on subsequent heating. The increase of the compressive force of

Figure 3 confirms the existence of a disordered structure both below and above the transition temperature as detected by the DSC experiment. The temperature evolution of the structure of the liquid has been followed looking at the Q position of the first maximum (around Q=13 nm-1) and minimum (around Q=4 nm-1) of I(Q) respectively identified as positions QA and QB.The Q values of these two points, reported as a function of temperature in the insets of Figure 3, show a jump at the temperatures corresponding to the LTL-HTL transition, as derived by the DSC measurements. The three transition temperatures for the maxima (full triangle) and the minima (full stars) of I(Q) reported on the phase diagram of Figure 2 show good agreement.. The combination of DSC and X-ray diffraction allowed us to draw the phase diagram of a solution undergoing inverse melting and to characterise the two different microscopic local structures of the disordered fluid phases, the LTL and the HTL observed in the low ...
This thesis describes the work done with various liptins on lipid membranes. The liptins are organic molecules designed to interact with bacteria in hopes of reducing the antimicrobial resistance threat. The hypothesis is that the liptins will have a pocket which can interact with phosphatidylglycerol, PG, on the phospholipid membrane. With this interaction, the liptins binds to the membrane and causes membrane destabilization. Various lipids vesicles were prepared and liptins were introduced to examine the effect. By the use of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and fluorescence efflux studies, details about the liptin interactions can be investigated. The DSC studies reveal that the liptins affect the membrane bilayer by reducing the enthalpy of the transition from gel ordered phase to liquid disordered phase, while keeping the transition temperature constant. As for the fluorescence efflux studies, they reveal information on possible pore formation induced in the membrane by the liptins ...

Using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and plate count (PC), growth of Escherichia coli was measured in four initial E. coli cell concentrations cultured in tryptic soy broth (TSB) at 35C. The calorimeter measured the energy released and/or absorbed by E. coli cells during growth and expressed it as thermograms. The resulting thermograms accurately reflected cell growth and activity, and exhibited a close correlation with growth values recorded by PC. Heat release decreased notably in the final stage of the logarithmic growth phase, and no signal was generated once the stationary phase had begun. DSC accurately quantified growth in E. coli at different initial cell concentrations grown in TSB at 35C. Depending on initial E. coli concentration, DSC detected growth starting after just a few minutes and up to five hours. The detection limit of calorimeter was 4.3 0.4 log10 CFU. DSC is an effective alternative method for measuring bacterial growth in TSB in real time. This is the first report ...

Abstract: Topological strings on Calabi--Yau manifolds are known to undergo phase transitions at small distances. We study this issue in the case of perturbative topological strings on local Calabi--Yau threefolds given by a bundle over a two-sphere. This theory can be regarded as a q--deformation of Hurwitz theory, and it has a conjectural nonperturbative description in terms of q--deformed 2d Yang--Mills theory. We solve the planar model and find a phase transition at small radius in the universality class of 2d gravity. We give strong evidence that there is a double--scaled theory at the critical point whose all genus free energy is governed by the Painlevé I equation. We compare the critical behavior of the perturbative theory to the critical behavior of its nonperturbative description, which belongs to the universality class of 2d supergravity. We also give evidence for a new open/closed duality relating these Calabi--Yau backgrounds to open strings with framing ...

When gases evolve during a chemical reaction, a fraction of the reaction heat is lost with them. We have analyzed, both theoretically and experimentally, the deviations that this effect can produce on the determination of the reaction heat by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). It is shown that, even in the absence of gas overheating, deviations related to variations in the sample heat capacity can be substantial in experiments involving very intense DSC peaks. However, experiments performed on thermal decomposition of metal organic salts and on evaporation of liquids have shown that deviations usually arise from gas ...

Polymer chain motion was not restricted by the ORMOGLASS and two different phases were present in contrast to what was previously observed in ormoglass coated PLA.17 Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) results showed that the thermal properties of the polymer were globally not affected by the incorporation of the ORMOGLASS. In fact, the thermograms of the hybrid fibers associated with the first heating ramp were similar to those of PLA fibers. Moreover, based on the second heating ramps, no significant differences in Tg were observed for the PLA and the hybrid fibers, as expected (Fig. S4, ESI†). Interactions at the nanometric level can be created thanks to the intrinsic advantages of the fabrication method,24 but no strong chemical interactions, able to induce significant modifications in Tg, were formed. Note that Tg in this amorphous PLDLLA (70% LL/30% LD PLA) ranges between 55 and 60 °C and basically depends on the molecular weight.25 The higher the ORMOGLASS content, the earlier the ...

Complexation of drug with different cyclodextrins (?, ? and HP-?-CD) was attempted to improve solubility of Paracetamol. During the drug excipient interaction studies, ?, ? cyclodextrins elicited analytical interference and showed considerable absorbance at ?max (243.5 nm) of Paracetamol while the ones constituting of hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (HP-?-CD) did not show any such interference. Therefore, the present study is concentrated on exploring HP-?-CD as complexing agent. Phase solubility studies showed that complexation of Paracetamol/HP-?-CD at molar ratio 1:1 and showed AL type solubility curve. Complexation was done by various methods like physical mixing, kneading and freeze drying and resulting drug complexes were characterized by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). The thermograms obtained showed an endothermic peak for
A preliminary thermo gravimetric measurement was performed over a temperature range from room temperature to 240 °C. Beginning at room temperature the mass loss rate increased steadily, reaching a maximum at 94°C and exhibiting a small shoulder in the DTG curve at 107°C,. Mass loss was complete at 115°C, taking into account the initial mass loss from purging (21.7%) before the start of the measurement. There was no residue left. The DSC measurements were performed twice. To determine a possible boiling point more precisely a crucible lid with a hole of 50 Om diameter was used in the measurements. The small hole causes the generation of a defined atmosphere at constant pressure inside the crucible and allows measurements at near equilibrium conditions, thus preventing evaporation of the test material before reaching the boiling point. The sample was quenched down to -150°C. Upon heating the enthalpy curves show a small exothermic peak at -135°C (crystallisation) and a small endothermic peak ...
They carried out DSC studies on the cyclopropane and on the bromodiene. The first step involves dibromocarbene addition to the but-2-ene and noted that the cyclopropane decomposes at an onset temperature of 145°C releasing 360 J/g and the diene at 226°C delivering 500 J/g. Both non-trivial amounts of energy. According to their SOPs a 100°C difference between onset temperature and reaction temperature must be observed for a decent safety margin to be maintained. To get around this problem two thing were done a) the dibromocyclopropane was isolated and b) the conversion to the bromodiene was carried out in a continuous flow reactor. A further complication is that the dibromocyclopropane is sensitive to basic conditions and careful work-up conditions had to be chosen to avoid high pH. Using t-BuOK/CHBr3 in heptanes the reaction was addition controlled at 0°C and gave a 98% yield of the diene precursor.. It was determined that the bromodiene was optimally synthesised by using a reaction ...
Polyester-like thermoplastic products obtained as a result of the reaction between lignins and terephthaloyl chrolide were examined. Steam exploded lignin (L) and sodium lignosulphonates (LS) were modified with terephthaloyl chloride. Some molecular and thermal properties of lignin modificates were determined. As a result of TG analysis it can be stated that modified product have higher temperature of a maximum weight loss than initial lignins. In thermograms of the initial lignins only endothermic peaks at 124 and 121°C for LS and 111°C for L can be observed. In case of modified LS the additional enothermic peak at 401°C is noticed. It is probably caused by thermal decomposition of the products. For modified product of LS an exothermic peaks at 313°C is observed. Molecular properties of lignins and products of their modification were evaluated using gel permeation chromatography (GPC). Due to GPC application a comparison of molecular weight distribution both for lignins and for products of ...

High sensitivity differential scanning calorimetry (d.s.c.) and uv-visible spectrophotometry have been used to study the thermal unfolding of alpha-chymotrypsin in presence of calcium chloride at pH = 2.8, 3.4, 5.0, 7.0, and 8.2. Quantitative thermodynamic parameters accompanying the thermal transitions have been evaluated. In the absence of calcium ions, the thermal denaturation of a-chymotrypsin is a reversible process giving a ratio of the vant Hoff to calorimetric enthalpy of 0.92 at pH = 2.8. At pH values higher than 5.0, the thermal denaturations in the absence of calcium chloride were observed to be completely irreversible. In the presence of calcium chloride, alpha-chymotrypsin undergoes irreversible thermal denaturation and its thermal transitions are found to be scan-rate dependent fitting to the model N-2 --, I, yielding an average activation energy of (419 +/- 16) kJ (.) mol(-1) using different approaches at pH = 2.8. It is also observed that at pH 2.8 and 3.4, calcium reduces the ...
However, above 50 K the thermal expansivity of the cell volume for the heating sequence is markedly lower when compared with the cooling sequence. Similar behaviour is shown by the a, c and b lattice constants, whereas the b lattice constant exhibits a less negative expansion. The thermal treatment of the sample offers a likely explanation for this observation. The sample was initially quenched at 100 K and then cooled to 5 K. Data recorded on warming this sample were composed entirely of the phase II structure until the transition onset around 210 K. In contrast, the phase II sample for the cooling sequence was transformed via the phase I structure and lattice parameters for both phases could be refined down to 167 K. Very weak peaks corresponding to the phase I structure were in fact observed down to 100 K. The intergrowth of phase II and phase I structures and sluggish nature of the transition would both affect the observed thermal expansivity of phase II in the cooling sequence. ...
For this endpoint one study is available. The explosive properties of the test item were assessed according to Regulation EC No. 440/2008 Method A.14. Explosive Properties and OECD Test Guideline 113 (1981): Thermal Stability (DSC measurement). In the DSC-measurement the energy of the exothermic decomposition of the test item was , -500 J/g. The onset temperature for the exothermic decomposition was 350°C. Therefore, further tests for explosive properties had not to be performed. It is concluded that the test item has no explosive properties. ...
This article reports the temperature dependence of the structural and photoelectrical properties of C60 thin films with varying crystal structure and oxygen content near the orientational disorder/order phase transition at about 260 K. X-ray diffraction data demonstrate that highly crystalline oxygen-free C60 films undergo the first-order phase transition at 252 K with a lattice parameter discontinuity Δa/a of 0.22%; no discontinuity was observed in C60 films with coexisting amorphous and nanocrystalline phases. A strong effect of the phase transition on the dark- and photoconductivity in those films is presented: In highly crystalline C60 films both dark- and photoconductivity increase as the temperature is lowered through the transition region. However, opposite temperature changes of the conductivity are observed in nanocrystalline/amorphous C60 films. In situ exposure of samples to oxygen gas suppresses any critical behavior. The experimental results are interpreted in terms of ...

PY - 2010/2/15. Y1 - 2010/2/15. N2 - The ionic conductivity of PAN-TiO2-LiClO4 as a function of TiO2 concentration and temperature has been reported. The electrolyte samples were prepared by solution casting technique. Their conductivity was measured using the impedance spectroscopy technique. The highest room temperature conductivity of 1.8 × 10-4 S cm-1 was obtained at 7.5 wt % of TiO2 filler. It was observed that the relationship between temperature and conductivity were linear, fitting well in Arrhenius and not in Vogel-Tamman-Fulcher equation. The pre-exponential factor, σ0 and Ea are 1.8 × 10-4 S cm-1 and 0.15 eV, respectively. The conductivity data have been supported by differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) analysis. DSC analysis showed that there was a significant change in glass ...

An endotherm (from Greek ἔνδον endon within and θέρμη thermē heat) is an organism that maintains its body at a metabolically favorable temperature, largely by the use of heat set free by its internal bodily functions instead of relying almost purely on ambient heat. Such internally generated heat is mainly an incidental product of the animals routine metabolism, but under conditions of excessive cold or low activity an endotherm might apply special mechanisms adapted specifically to heat production. Examples include special-function muscular exertion such as shivering, and uncoupled oxidative metabolism such as within brown adipose tissue. Only birds and mammals are extant universally endothermic groups of animals. Certain lamnid sharks, tuna and billfishes are also endothermic. In common parlance, endotherms are characterized as warm-blooded. The opposite of endothermy is ectothermy, although in general, there is no absolute or clear separation between the nature of ...
A paper structure having at least three regions is disclosed. The paper structure has a first region, a patterned second region, and a third transition region connecting the first and second regions. The first and second regions are disposed at different elevations, and can each have a thickness less than a thickness of the transition region. An apparatus and process for making such a paper structure are also disclosed.
This is also reflected in the solubility versus temperature phase diagram (Fig. 3A), which shows a region of concentrations where the HB oligomer is unstable (below the dashed purple line and above the black solubility line) and a region where the oligomer is metastable (above the dashed purple line). Similar arguments can be made for the other metastable phases, such as the two, three, and four β-sheet fibril phases. We emphasize that we did not calculate free energies as we were able to calculate the solubilities directly; the discussion here is mainly presented for pedagogical purposes.. Knowledge of the thermodynamically stable and metastable phases in the phase diagram allows us to determine the conditions under which the oligomer or fibril can form. A previous discontinuous molecular dynamics (DMD) study of Aβ16-22 kinetic aggregation by Cheon et al. (6) found that at 20 mM and T* = 0.2, corresponding to 342 K, a system of peptides in a random configuration first forms a fibril nucleus, ...
FT-IR and 2D correlation spectroscopy were employed to study the microstructural changes ocurring during phase transitions of a liquid crystal poly(amidoamine) codendrimer (PAMAM (L1)16(L2)16) generation 3, functionalized on the terminal groups by one-chain promesogenic calamitic units (4-(4-decyloxybenzoyloxy)salicylaldehyde (L1)) and two-chain promesogenic calamitic units (4-(3,4-didecyloxybenzoyloxy)salicylaldehyde (L2)). Spectral modifications associated with molecular conformation rearangements allowing for molecular shape change on going from a liquid−crystalline organization to another were found. The transition temperatures were calculated, and they are in good agreement with the DSC data. Spectral analysis gives evidence of the LC phase transitions and to an additional transition associated with the existence of conformers. Various types of hydrogen bonding have been established ...
When an object absorbs light, the light energy is transferred to heat energy. The amount of heat that is absorbed depends on whether the color of the object reflects, absorbs or transmits. Simple science experiments are possible to determine how different colors respond to light and how much heat each color absorbs.

Thermogram of a cat. The different colours represent different temperatures. The lightest colours are the hottest temperatures, while the darker colours represent cooler temperatures. Thermography uses special cameras that can detect light in the far-infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (900-14,000 nanometers or 0.9-14 µm) to create an image that represents an objects temperature. - Stock Image Z934/0730
Industrially textured PLA multifilaments were heat set under different conditions at 110 ºC for 1 min and subjected to one cycle of deformation up to 20%. Thermal transitions of the original textured, heat set and cyclic strained filaments were measured using differential scanning calorimetry from 25 to 250 ºC. Cyclic deformation induces an endo-exo transition at peak temperatures between 55 - 60 ºC that is not observed in the original textured and heat set multifilaments. There is another endo-exo transition with peak temperatures between 67 and 72 ºC in all filaments, the intensity of which varies according to texturing conditions, heat setting and cycle strain. Texturing conditions, heat setting and cyclic strain play a role in thermal transitions, the strain at breaking and elastic properties of the filaments. The crystallinity and magnitude of the endo-exo thermal events detected by DSC are related to the strain at breaking and elasticity of polylactide textured ...

The outermost membrane of gram-negative bacteria is a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) rich bilayer assembly that acts as the first line of defense for bacterial cells in adverse physical and chemical environments. Besides the LPS, the outer membrane has radially extending O-antigen polysaccharide chains and β-barrel membrane proteins that make the bacterial membrane physiologically unique compared to the phospholipid cell membranes. To study the molecular complexity and dynamics of the LPS rich membrane, we have developed coarse grained parameter set for the outer membrane compatible with the Martini force field. The coarse grained model was benchmarked against available experimental and atomistic simulations data for properties such as membrane thickness, density profiles of the residues, area per lipid, gel to liquid-crystalline phase transition temperatures, order parameters, and radial distribution functions. More than 17 membrane compositions were studied with a combined simulation time of over 100
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the boiling point study does not need to be conducted as the substance decompose before boiling. A study similar to OECD 102 and EU Method A.2 was performed to determine the melting point of the test item using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The analysis was carried out in the DSC 1 STAR SYSTEM by Mettler Toledo. A SWISSI M20 crucible was used for the determination. The measuring range was between 25 °C to 300 °C at a heating rate of 2.0 °C/min. The analysis was performed as a duplicate determination. The decomposition of the test item releases an average energy of 818.5 J/g. The onset temperature of melting is an average 72.5 ° C. The decomposition temperature is at an average of 80.8 °C. As the test item decomposes right after melting, no boiling point could be determined. therefore, no test on boiling point is needed. ...
A chemical registry was created from a literature review and included characteristics relevant to XL such as molecular weight, carcinogenicity/mutagenicity, toxicity, hydrophobicity, and commercial availability. From this registry, compounds were then selected for efficacy screening using an ex vivo rabbit corneal cross-linking simulation set up. XL solution was administered via a corneal reservoir for 30 min in 0.1M NaHCO3 at either pH 7.4 or 8.5. The epithelium was left intact and 0.5% proparacaine was applied prior to XL. The control contralateral eye was treated identically with vehicle. Effectiveness of XL was based on shifts in thermal denaturation temperature (Tm) as measured by differential scanning calorimetry (Perkin-Elmer DSC 6000). Favorable DSC results were validated using biomechanical inflation tests with digital image correlation (DIC) as previously described by Myers et al.. ...
Gadolinium silicide (Gd5Si4) nanoparticles (NPs) exhibit different properties compared to their parent bulk materials due to finite size, shape, and surface effects. NPs were prepared by high energy ball-milling of the as-cast Gd5Si4ingot and size separated into eight fractions using time sensitive sedimentation in an applied dc magnetic field with average particle sizes ranging from 700 nm to 82 nm. The largest Gd5Si4 NPs order ferromagnetically at 316 K. A second anomaly observed at 110 K can be ascribed to a Gd5Si3 impurity. As the particle sizes decrease, the volume fraction of Gd5Si3 phase increases at the expense of the Gd5Si4 phase, and the ferromagnetic transition temperature of Gd5Si4 is reduced from 316 K to 310 K, while the ordering of the minor phase is independent of the particle size, remaining at 110 K.

The CMS hadronic calorimeter (HCAL) employs a plastic-scintillator-based endcap detector. The CMS HCAL Phase 1 upgrade involves installing silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) to measure light from scintillators in the detector. The SiPM signals are digitized by custom readout cards, called QIE cards, using the charge integration and encoder version 11 (QIE11) chip. The QIE cards for the HCAL endcap (HE) were tested and calibrated at FNAL. Then at CERN the QIE cards completed high radiation tests in the CHARM facility and muon/pion energy measurements in testbeam. Finally, the HE readout electronics were installed in CMS in 2018. The HCAL endcaps were calibrated using two Co-60 radiation sources. During physics data-taking in 2018, the HCAL online software (HCOS) configures and monitors the readout electronics to ensure data quality. This talk will summarize the testing, installation and commissioning of the HE Phase 1 upgrade readout system ...
LISA may be able to detect the gravitational waves from a first order phase transition at the electroweak scale. We present results from a large campaign of simulations studying a model of such phase transitions, and determine the shape of the power spectrum with unparalleled accuracy. We make concrete predictions of the detectability of sound waves from such a scenario, and note that an accurate measurement could place constraints on the underlying phase transition parameters.. ...

How do you calculate the energy absorbed when mixing salts with water that produce an endothermic reaction, make thing the water cold, but with regards to calorimetry? I dont know how to get the energy but I know how to get the molar enthalpy, but I am still confused, if I calculate just for energy using q=mct I feel like Im not taking into consideration everything regarding
Abstract: The nature of axion cosmology is usually said to depend on whether the Peccei-Quinn (PQ) symmetry breaks before or after inflation. The PQ symmetry itself is believed to be an accident, so there is not necessarily a symmetry during inflation at all. We explore these issues in some simple models, which provide examples of symmetry breaking before and after inflation, or in which there is no symmetry during inflation and no phase transition at all. One effect of these observations is to relax the constraints from isocurvature fluctuations due to the axion during inflation. We also observe new possibilities for evading the constraints due to cosmic strings and domain walls, but they seem less generic ...

Dense protein clusters are known to play an important role in nucleation of protein crystals from dilute solutions. While these have generally been thought to be formed from a metastable phase, the observation of similar, if not identical, clusters above the critical point for the dilute-solution/strong-solution phase transition has thrown this into doubt. Furthermore, the observed clusters are stable for relatively long times. Because protein aggregation plays a central role in some pathologies, understanding the nature of such clusters is an important problem. One mechanism for the stabilization of such structures was proposed by Pan, Vekilov and Lubchenko and was investigated using a dynamical density functional theory model which confirmed the viability of the model. Here, we revisit that model and incorporate additional physics in the form of state-dependent reaction rates. We show by a combination of numerical results and general arguments that the state-dependent rates disrupt the ...
Abstract: We find an unexpected tetragonal-to-monoclinic-to-rhombohedral-to-cubic phase transition sequence induced by pressure, and a morphotropic phase boundary in a pure compound using first-principles calculations. Huge dielectric and piezoelectric coupling constants occur in the transition regions, comparable to those observed in the new complex single-crystal solid-solution piezoelectrics such as Pb(Mg$_{1/3}$Nb$_{2/3}$)O$_{3}$-PbTiO$_{3}$, which are expected to revolutionize electromechanical applications. Our results show that morphotropic phase boundaries and giant piezoelectric effects do not require intrinsic disorder, and open the possibility of studying this effect in simple systems ...

A new homologous series (ten compounds) of 2-hydroxy azo compounds SRn (where n:1-10) were synthesized. Their structures were elucidated using spectroscopic techniques such as IR (Infrared), 1H-NMR as well as elemental analysis. Mesomorphic properties and phase transitions were studied using polarized hot stage optical microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and are discussed as a function of the number of carbon atoms in the thioalkyl chain. It has been found that all compounds in the series are pure nematogens.
A recently developed continuum-mechanical model for stress-induced phase transitions in solids is applied to a transition generated by impact. The role of transition kinetics in determining the macroscopic response to impact is discussed; in addition, the special way that overdriven phase boundaries emerge in this model is described. The predictions of the model are compared with experiments involving shock-induced graphite-to-diamond phase transitions. ...
