Steering the cluster configuration inside a fullerene cage has been one of most interesting topics in the field of fullerenes, since the physical property of a cluster fullerene may be modified accordingly. It has been well-recognized that the cluster configuration can be tuned via altering the cage size. Typically, the carbide cluster and the oxide cluster are experimentally seen to be curled up within a small fullerene cage whereas they are expanded in a large cage. In this work, a new oxide cluster fullerene HoO@ C(13333)-C is prepared and isolated. The single-crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) study reveals that the HoO cluster, however, expands within the small non-IPR cage of C(13333)-C with a Ho-O-Ho angle of >170°, indicating that cluster configuration is highly related to the cage shape and cage structure as well. The DFT computation demonstrates that the cluster-to-cage electron-transfer obviously enhances the aromaticity of the motif containing the fused-pentagon pair and hence stabilizes the non-IPR cage of C(13333)-C. In addition, the electrochemical and magnetic properties of HoO@ C(13333)-C are studied to further investigate the effect of endohedral HoO cluster.

A small cluster of chemoreceptive and supporting cells located near the bifurcation of the internal carotid artery. The carotid body, which is richly supplied with fenestrated capillaries, senses the pH, carbon dioxide, and oxygen concentrations in the blood and plays a crucial role in their homeostatic control.
Class I human histocompatibility (HLA) antigens encoded by a small cluster of structural genes at the C locus on chromosome 6. They have significantly lower immunogenicity than the HLA-A and -B determinants and are therefore of minor importance in donor/recipient crossmatching. Their primary role is their high-risk association with certain disease manifestations (e.g., spondylarthritis, psoriasis, multiple myeloma).

Members of the beta-globin family. In humans, they are encoded in a gene cluster on CHROMOSOME 11. They include epsilon-globin, gamma-globin, delta-globin and beta-globin. There is also a pseudogene of beta (theta-beta) in the gene cluster. Adult HEMOGLOBIN is comprised of two ALPHA-GLOBIN chains and two beta-globin chains.
Small, sacculated organs found within the DERMIS. Each gland has a single duct that emerges from a cluster of oval alveoli. Each alveolus consists of a transparent BASEMENT MEMBRANE enclosing epithelial cells. The ducts from most sebaceous glands open into a HAIR FOLLICLE, but some open on the general surface of the SKIN. Sebaceous glands secrete SEBUM.
