Abstract: This work describes an electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) study of the hexane/CTAB-(CTA)4[Fe(CN)6]-butanol/water system in contact with a graphite electrode before and after being modified with an adsorbed surfactant layer in contact with an electroactive molecule. Six plausible equivalent circuits are tested in order to fit impedance experimental data for the unmodified electrode. Once an adsorbed surfactant layer is chemically attached to the graphite surface its electrochemical response changes. This type of modified graphite electrodes are tested in a Fe(CN) 6 3- standard solution using EIS. A series of three plausible equivalent circuits are casted to fit the experimental impedance data. The proposed models include diffusion of electroactive species through an adsorbed surfactant layer on the electrode surface. For all the equivalent circuits investigated a low ?2 fitting error and percentage of error determined from Kramers-Kronig plots are reported. Final proposals of an equivalent circuit to describe the unmodified and modified graphite electrode interface are presented.

To characterize floral morphology and synchrony, 115 teosinte populations, 60 maize accessions representing 53 landraces, three improved open pollinated varieties and 14 commercial hybrids were evaluated. A high level of variation among the Zea populations was found. The pollen size in landraces and commercial hybrids was larger (103-105 ?m) than in teosinte (84 ?m). Teosinte pollen grains of several accessions collapsed at pollen shed but for some populations viability was retained from 30 minutes to one hour. Silks in maize were twice as long as teosinte silks (16 to 27 cm vs 7.2-11.4 cm). Trichome density was five times higher in teosinte silks than in maize silks. Most indigenous teosinte (ssp. mexicana) populations from the Valley of Mexico and Central Plateau areas flowers synchronously with landraces and commercial hybrids. In contrast, tropical teosinte (ssp. parviglumis) flowers 2-3 weeks later than maize. The results of this study are important components to estimate the likelihood of gene flow among species of the genus Zea in Mexico.",,,,,,,,,"http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12104/39996","http://www.scopus.com/inward/record.url?eid=2-s2.0-33746402419&partnerID=40&md5=33c1b97f8b92a516734e276bd92c4d9c",,,,,,"2",,"Maydica",,"383

Pepine, C.J.",,"2004",,"Background: Despite a high prevalence of hypertension in the population with CAD, there are limited data describing the clinical characteristics and treatments, as well as their interrelations in these patients. This is particularly true for black and Hispanic patients who have been underrepresented in randomized CAD trials. Hypothesis: There exist racial and ethnic differences that define the characteristics of patients with both coronary artery disease (CAD) and hypertension. Methods: This report describes the characteristics of Caucasian, Hispanic, and black patients enrolled in the International Verapamil SR/trandolapril Study (INVEST), a prospective trial undertaken exclusively in patients with CAD and hypertension. Results: In all, 10,925 Caucasian, 8,045 Hispanic, and 3,029 black patients are described. An abnormal angiogram or documented myocardial infarction was observed more frequently in Caucasian patients (73%), while angina pectoris was more prevalent in Hispanic patients (87%). Diabetes and left ventricular hypertrophy were most common in black patients (33 and 29%, respectively), while hypercholesterolemia and prior revascularization (coronary artery bypass graft or angioplasty) were most common in Caucasian patients (64 and 41%, respectively). More than 60% of Hispanic and black patients were women-a unique characteristic for randomized CAD trials. Comparing race/ethnic cohorts, there were significant differences for all characteristics. More than 80% of patients in all race/ethnic groups were receiving antihypertensive therapy; however, only fewer than 25% had controlled blood pressure according to guidelines from the sixth report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation and Treatment of High Blood Pressure. Conclusions: This high-risk population of hypertensive patients with CAD has been undertreated and does not have well-controlled BP. Race/ethnic differences were observed for clinical characteristics and medication use.",,,,,,,,,"http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12104/39980","http://www.scopus.com/inward/record.url?eid=2-s2.0-4644253100&partnerID=40&md5=f2f29857593512968dacd65db5d9edf6",,,,,,"10",,"Clinical Cardiology",,"571

Starved conditions are confirmed by the low amount of residual monomer throughout the reaction and by the fact that the instantaneous polymerization rate is similar to the feeding rate of monomer. Under these conditions, polymer particles in the nanometer range (20-30 nm) were obtained with narrow size distribution (1.07 < Dw/Dn < 1.18), depending of surfactant concentration. Final particle size diminishes as the surfactant concentration is increased. Glass transition temperatures and syndiotactic content (54%-59%) of the produced polymers are substantially higher than those reported for commercial and bulk-made PMMA. Molar masses are much lower than those expected from termination by chain transfer to monomer, which is the typical termination mechanism in 0-1 emulsion and microemulsion polymerization of this monomer. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.",,,,,,"10.1002/app.32886",,,,"http://www.scopus.com/inward/record.url?eid=2-s2.0-78249235323&partnerID=40&md5=a78afc3e585bfcf6925418f193d1c48e

The aim of this study is the mapping of the breakpoints and a detailed molecular characterization of the candidate genes for an isolated and syndromic form of ectrodactyly, both associated with de novo apparently balanced chromosome translocations involving the same chromosome 2 band, [t(2;11)(q14.2;q14.2)] and [t(2;4)(q14.1;q35)], respectively. Breakpoints were mapped by fluorescence in situ hybridization using bacterial artificial chromosome clones. Where possible, these breakpoints were further delimited. Candidate genes were screened for pathogenic mutations and the expression levels of two of them analysed. The isolated bilateral split foot malformation-associated chromosome 2 breakpoint was localized at 120.9Mb, between the two main candidate genes, encoding GLI-Kruppel family member GLI2 and inhibin-?B. The second breakpoint associated with holoprosencephaly, hypertelorism and ectrodactyly syndrome was mapped 2.5Mb proximal at 118.4Mb and the candidate genes identified from this region were the insulin-induced protein 2 and the homeobox protein engrailed-1. No clear pathogenic mutations were identified in any of these genes. The breakpoint between INHBB and GLI2 coincides with a previously identified translocation breakpoint associated with ectrodactyly. We propose a mechanism by which translocations in the 2q14.1-q14.2 region disrupt the specific arrangement of long-range regulatory elements that control the tight quantitative spatiotemporal expression of one or more genes from the breakpoint region.",,,,,,"10.1038/ejhg.2009.2",,,"http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12104/40007","http://www.scopus.com/inward/record.url?eid=2-s2.0-67749094763&partnerID=40&md5=132c187207c771fa5d5db20a6ceaf0bd",,,,,,"8",,"European Journal of Human Genetics",,"1024

Knauth, P.",,"2012",,"The yeast cell wall (YCW) is composed mainly of ?-glucans, mannoproteins, and chitin. ?-Glucans are well known immunomodulators, recognized by Toll-like receptor-4 (TLR-4) and inducing the nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-?B) signaling pathway, which is implicated in the synthesis of pro-inflammatory mediators such as interleukin-1beta (IL-1?), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-?), and nitric oxide (NO). Here we evaluated the immunomodulating effect of the YCW extracts from three different strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (AR5, MG, and L013) obtained from Tequila and bread-making processes by challenging intraperitoneal macrophages from BALB/c mice with YCW extract and/or lipopolysaccharide (LPS) endotoxin from Escherichia coli. Only the extract from AR5, which had a high glucan-to-mannan ratio, exhibited an antagonistic effect upon LPS stimulation: The IL-1? and TNF-? concentrations in plasma increased slightly by 24% and 4%, respectively, and the NO level increased moderately by 200% compared with the control. When the YCW extracts had less glucan, as found for MG and L013, the LPS stimulus had more of a synergistic effect on the plasma IL-1? concentration, which increased about 175%, and on the NO level, which rose 330-470%. These results indicated that under certain conditions, YCW extracts have an immune-attenuating effect; that is, the mice liberated much less IL-1? or nearly equal amounts of TNF-? or NO compared with the LPS stimulus alone.
