Controlled synthesis of mixed molecular nanostructures from folate and deferrioxamine-Ga(III) on gold and tuning their performance for cancer cells.

A new strategy is developed for construction of the mixed molecular nanostructures from folic acid (FOA), a targeting agent, and deferrioxamoine-Ga(III), (DFO-Ga(III)), a theranostic agent, on gold-mercaptopropionic acid surface, Au-MPA. The strategy is focused to achieve a system in which all the active constituents of FOA; i.e., pteridine rings, p-aminobenzoeic acid, and the glutamic acid, having high affinity for folate receptor overexpressed on cancer cells; remain unreacted in adjacent to DFO-Ga(III), ...

When Group Work Doesn't Work: Insights from Students.

Introducing group work in college science classrooms can lead to noticeable gains in student achievement, reasoning ability, and motivation. To realize these gains, students must all contribute. Strategies like assigning roles, group contracts, anonymous peer evaluations, and peer ratings all encourage student participation. In a class using these strategies, we conducted in-depth interviews to uncover student perceptions of group work in general and the utility of these support strategies. Students in both...

Racial And Ethnic Differences In The Attainment Of Behavioral Health Quality Measures In Medicare Advantage Plans.

As the Medicare population becomes more diverse and its demand for behavioral health care grows, a better understanding of racial/ethnic disparities in the quality of behavioral health care is crucial. Medicare Advantage (MA) plans are accountable through the public reporting of quality performance on measures, including the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS). We examined HEDIS data on eight MA behavioral health care quality measures, using mixed-effects logistic regressions to distin...

Mechanism and kinetics of catalytic ozonation for elimination of organic compounds with spinel-type CuAlO and its precursor.

CuAlO based mixed oxides were used as heterogeneous catalysts for ozone activation to degrade organics in aqueous solution. The solids were thoroughly characterized by SEM/EDS, N physisorption, XRD, FTIR, Pyridine-FTIR, TEM and XPS. We demonstrated that the solid precursor calcined at 300 °C exhibited the best catalytic ozonation activity with respect to CuAlO spinel phase obtained at higher temperatures. Such performance was attributed to the better textural properties and a higher density of active sit...

The effect of 580 nm-based-LED mixed light on growth, adipose deposition, skeletal development, and body temperature of chickens.

Though previous study indicated that the 580 nm-yellow-LED-light showed an stimulating effect on growth of chickens, the low luminous efficiency of the yellow LED light cannot reflect the advantage of energy saving. In present study, the cool white LED chips and yellow LED chips have been combined to fabricate the white × yellow mixed LED light, with an enhanced luminous efficiency. A total 300 newly hatched chickens were reared under various mixed LED light. The results indicated that the white ×...

Effect of mixed surface terminations on the structural and electrochemical properties of two-dimensional TiCT and VCT MXenes multilayers.

MXenes, a family of layered transition metal carbides and nitrides, have shown great promise for use in emerging electrochemical energy storage devices, including batteries and supercapacitors. MXene surfaces are terminated by mixed -O, -F and -OH functional groups as a result of the chemical etching production process. These functional groups are known to be randomly distributed over the surfaces, with limited experimental control over their composition. There is considerable debate regarding the contribut...

Towards High Performance MOF - Microporous Polymer Mixed Matrix Membranes: Addressing Compatibility and Limiting Aging via Polymer Doping.

Membrane separation for gas purification is an energy-efficient and environment-friendly technology. However, the development of high performance membranes is still a great challenge. In principle, mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) have the potential to overcome current materials limitations, but in practice there is no straightforward method to match the properties of fillers and polymers (the main components of MMMs) in such a way that the final membrane performance reflects the high performance of the microp...

Simulation of dyslexia. How literacy and cognitive skills can help distinguish college students with dyslexia from malingerers.

Academic accommodations associated with a diagnosis of dyslexia might be incentives for college students without reading or spelling difficulties to feign dyslexia and obtain the diagnosis unfairly. In the current study we examined malingering practices by comparing the performance of college students instructed to malinger dyslexia (n = 28) to that of students actually diagnosed with dyslexia (n = 16). We also included a control group of students without reading and spelling difficulties (n = 28). The test...

Effects of Group Gender Composition on Mental Rotation Test Performance in Women.

Mental rotation is a task in which men outscore women by up to one standard deviation. Many biological, strategic, experiential, and motivational factors concur to explain this gender gap. Among these there are gender stereotypes, which could either harm or favor performance, giving rise, respectively, to stereotype threat or lift effects. This study examined effects due to stereotypes induced by testing women in a minority mixed-gender group composition (subtle message) when provided with instructions abou...
