    A mathematical model was developed within the framework of generalized hydrodynamics for the description of flows in microsystems where the Knudsen number is largest and the aspect ratio is not so small. The model was based ...
  • Shreif Z.; Mandalian L.; Abi-Haydar A.; Sultan R. (, 2004)
    We present here novel expermients on the formation of Liesegang rings in 2D. We consider the system of propagating Co(OH)2 bands studied extensively in 1D, from the viewpoint of a large number of considerations. In this ...

    Thymoquinone (TQ), the most abundant constituent in black seed, was shown to possess potent chemopreventive activities against DMBA-initiated TPA-promoted skin tumors in mice. Despite the potential interest in TQ as a skin ...
  • Kabbout M.; Hatoum A.; Abou-Lteif G.; Chakroun I.; Homaidan F.R.; Darwiche N. (NEW YORKDIV JOHN WILEY and SONS INC, 605 THIRD AVE, NEW YORK, NY 10158-0012 USA, 2004)
    Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the most prevalent form of epithelial cancer. SCC results when normal epithelial cells undergo multiple neoplastic changes that culminate in the evolution of an invasive cancer. Retinoids ...
  • Kreydiyyeh S.I.; Al-Sadi R. (NEW YORK175 FIFTH AVE, NEW YORK, NY 10010 USA, 2004)
    IL-1β reduces the activity and protein expression of Na +-K+-ATPase in rat kidney cells. The aim of the present study was to elucidate the signalling pathway involved, using the LLC-PK 1 cell line. In these cells IL-1β ...
  • Khuri-Makdisi K. (PROVIDENCE201 CHARLES ST, PROVIDENCE, RI 02940-2213 USA, 2004)
    We use an embedding of the symmetric dth power of any algebraic curve C of genus g into a Grassmannian space to give algorithms for working with divisors on C, using only linear algebra in vector spaces of dimension O(g), ...
  • Baydoun E.A.-H.; Pavlencheva N.; Cumming C.M.; Waldron K.W.; Brett C.T. (OXFORDTHE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, ENGLAND, 2004)
    Pectins were extracted from roots, petioles and leaves of sugar beet, and cross-linked using hydrogen peroxide and peroxidase. The effects on dehydrodiferulate formation were monitored by HPLC and TLC. Dehydrodimers were ...
