Energy cost of transport per unit distance (CoT; J·kg-1·km-1) displays a U-shaped fashion in walking and a linear fashion in running as a function of gait speed (v; km·h-1). There exists an intersection between U-shaped and linear CoT-v relationships, being termed energetically optimal transition speed (EOTS; km·h-1). Combined effects of gradient and moderate normobaric hypoxia (15.0% O2) were investigated when walking and running at the EOTS in fifteen young males. The CoT values were determined at eight walking speeds (2...

The molecular origins of adsorption of lignin-derived phenolics to metal-organic framework NU-1000 are investigated from aqueous solution, as well as in competitive mode with glucose present in the same aqueous mixture. A comparison of adsorption equilibrium constants (Kads) for phenolics functionalized with either carboxylic acid or aldehyde substituents demonstrated only a slight increase (less than a factor of 6) for the former according to both experiments and calculations. This small difference in Kads between aldehyde and carboxylic-acid substituted adsorbates is consistent with the pyrene unit of NU-1000 as the adsorption site, rather than the zirconia nodes, while at saturation coverage, the adsorption capacity suggests multiple guests per pyrene...

Benign metastasizing leiomyoma (BML) is a rare condition in which a benign uterine leiomyoma causes metastasis, mainly to the lungs. The patient was a 72-year-old woman who had undergone hysterectomy for an uterine leiomyoma at 37 years of age. Between the ages of 52 and 68 years, she had undergone 5 metastatectomies for 10 BMLs. At the current presentation, 2 nodules located in the right upper lobe of the lung were resected. The histological diagnosis was BML, and immunohistochemical staining demonstrated that the tumor cells were positive for estrogen and progesterone receptors...

Chlorophyll degradation plays important roles in leaf senececne incuding regulation of the degradation of chlorophyll-binding proteins. Although most enzymes of the chlorophyll degradation pathway have been identified, the regulation of their activity has not been fully understood. Green cotyledon mutants in legume are stay green mutants, in which chlorophyll degradation is inhibited during leaf senescence and seed maturation. Among them, the soybean green cotyledon gene cytG is unique because it is maternally inherited...
