The long-term use of calcium hydroxide and the recent increase in the use of hydraulic calcium-silicate cements as direct pulp-capping materials provide important clues in terms of how reparative dentin may be induced to form a "biological seal" to protect the underlying pulp tissues. In this review article, we discuss clinical and molecular perspectives of reparative dentin formation based on evidence learned from the use of these pulp-capping materials. We also discuss the emerging role of calcium as an odontoinductive component in these pulp-capping materials...

In an organized assembly in Arabidopsis thaliana plant, proton loss from the radical cation of zeaxanthin (Zea(+)) was found to occur under intense illumination, a possible component in photoprotection. A stable neutral radical is formed because of the favorable proton loss at C4(4') position(s) of the terminal ends of Zea(+) that extends the unpaired spin density distribution (notation Zea(4) or Zea(4') by symmetry). Proton loss from the radical cation of β-carotene (β-car(+)) to available proton acceptors was also detected in a PSII sample upon irradiation...

The high-pressure silicate K1.5Mg2Si2O7H0.5, synthesized and characterized by Welch et al. [(2012), Am. Mineral. 97, 1849-1857], has been re-examined with the aim of determining the nature of the superstructure noted in their study. The composition corresponds to a 1:1 combination of KMg2Si2O7H and K2Mg2Si2O7 end-members, but it is not a solid solution. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction data for one of the original K1.5Mg2Si2O7H0.5 crystals synthesized at 16 GPa/1573 K, has been collected using a much longer exposure time in order to improve the intensity statistics of weak superlattice reflections identified by Welch et al...

An eight year time-series in the Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP) with an approximately weekly sampling frequency was used to elucidate changes in virioplankton abundance and their drivers in this climatically-sensitive region. Virioplankton abundances at the coastal WAP show a pronounced seasonal cycle with interannual variability in the timing and magnitude of the summer maxima. Bacterioplankton abundance is the most influential driving factor of the virioplankton, and exhibit closely coupled dynamics. Sea ice cover and duration predetermine levels of phytoplankton stock and thus, influence virioplankton by dictating the substrates available to the bacterioplankton...

2.0 μm emission properties of Er(3+)/Ho(3+) codoped silicate glasses were investigated pumped by 980 nm LD. Absorption spectra were determined. Intense mid-infrared emissions near 2 μm are observed. The spectral components of the 2 μm fluorescence band were analyzed and an equivalent model of four-level system was proposed to describe broadband 2 μm emission. Low OH(-) absorption coefficient (0.23 cm(-1)), high fluorescence lifetime (2.95 ms) and large emission cross section (5.61 × 10(-21) cm(2)) corresponding to Ho(3+): (5)I7→(5)I8 transition were obtained from the prepared glass...

A novel intrinsic hydrolysis method was employed, for the first-time, to synthesize well-ordered H-AlSBA-15 with trivalent aluminium exclusively in tetrahedral framework structure of SBA-15. Unlike other methods, which involve incorporation of aluminum ions in, both, framework (Brønsted) and non-framework (Lewis) sites of the silicate matrix, the intrinsic hydroly-sis method isomorphously substitutes aluminium ions in the tetrahedral network even at high aluminium content. This unique approach relies mainly on hydrolysis rates of inorganic (silicon and aluminium) precursors used for the preparation in such a way that the condensation occurs simultaneously so as to overcome the usually encountered difficulties in stabilizing aluminium ions in the silicate matrix...

Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) is a calcium silicate dental cement used for various applications in dentistry. This study was undertaken to test whether the presence of three commercial brands of calcium silicate dental cements in the dental extraction socket of rats would affect the brain aluminium (Al) levels and oxidative stress parameters. Right upper incisor was extracted and polyethylene tubes filled with MTA Angelus, MTA Fillapex or Theracal LC, or left empty for the control group, were inserted into the extraction socket...

This study used microcosms to evaluate the effects of adding iron (Fe) magnetic microparticles (MPs) on water quality, focusing on P concentrations in the water column and sediment. Two treatments were considered for a constant 85:1 MP:PMobile molar ratio: T-W, applying MPs on the surface water layer; and T-S, applying MPs on the sediment. MP addition reduced P concentrations in lake water and sediment, with both treatments producing a mean reduction of 68±6% in dissolved inorganic P concentration (DIP) over a 70-day oxic period and reductions of 80±8% (T-W) and 80±4% (T-S) over a 5-day anoxic period...

Chitin-metal silicates are multifunctional excipients used in tablets. Previously, a correlation between the surface acidity of chitin-calcium and chitin-magnesium silicate and the chemical decomposition of cefotaxime sodium was found but not with chitin-aluminum silicate. This lack of correlation could be due to the catalytic effect of silica alumina or the difference in surface area of the excipients. The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of the specific surface area of the excipient on the chemical decomposition of cefotaxime sodium in the solid state...

Substitution is an effective method to create new nonlinear optical (NLO) materials with an enhanced second harmonic generation (SHG) response. However, the large SHG enhancement caused by the substitution of Mg(2+) for Zn(2+) in an isostructural system is rare and has not been investigated yet. Here we elucidate the contribution of Zn(2+) with d(10) electronic configuration to the SHG response based on two isostructural silicates Sr2MSi2O7 (M = Zn and Mg). The powder SHG measurements show that the SHG response of Sr2ZnSi2O7 is approximately 35 times that of α-SiO2 and 7 times higher than its isostructural compound Sr2MgSi2O7...

Functional groups on the surface of fibrous silicates can complex iron. We tested the postulate that (1) asbestos complexes and sequesters host cell iron resulting in a disruption of metal homeostasis and (2) this loss of essential metal results in an oxidative stress and biological effect in respiratory epithelial cells. Exposure of BEAS-2B cells to 50 μg/mL chrysotile resulted in diminished concentrations of mitochondrial iron. Preincubation of these cells with 200 μM ferric ammonium citrate (FAC) prevented significant mitochondrial iron loss following the same exposure...

Our investigation focused on identifying melanogenesis effect of soluble minerals in rice bran ash extract (RBE) which include orthosilicic acid (OSA). Melanocytes were apparently normal in terms of morphology. It was, however, shown that they were stressed a little in the RBE and OSA added media in aspect of LDH activity. Melanin synthesis and intracellular tyrosinase activity were increased by treatment of RBE which is similar to that of OSA. The Western blotting results showed that TRP-1, tyrosinase, and MITF expression levels were 2-3 times higher in the OSA and RBE groups compared to the control group which promoted melanin synthesis through CREB phosphorylation...

Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) exhibits appropriate biomechanical strength as well as good biocompatibility and stable chemical properties but lacks bioactivity and cannot achieve highly efficient osseointegration after implantation. Incorporating bioceramics into the PEEK matrix is a feasible approach for improving its bioactivity. In this study, nanohydroxyapatite (n-HA) and nano-calcium silicate (n-CS) were separately incorporated into PEEK to prepare n-HA/PEEK and n-CS/PEEK biocomposites, respectively, using a compounding and injection-molding technique, and the in vitro degradation characteristics were evaluated...

The importance of developing new low-cost and safe cathodes for large-scale sodium batteries has led to recent interest in silicate compounds. A novel cobalt orthosilicate, Na2CoSiO4, shows promise as a high voltage (3.3 V vs. Na/Na(+)) cathode material for sodium-ion batteries. Here, the synthesis and room temperature electrochemical performance of Na2CoSiO4 have been investigated with the compound found to yield a reversible capacity greater than 100 mA h g(-1) at a rate of 5 mA g(-1). Insights into the crystal structures of Na2CoSiO4 were obtained through refinement of structural models for its two polymorphs, Pn and Pbca...

The goal of this narrative review was to summarize and compare treatment options for permanent teeth carious lesions that are radiographically close to the pulp chamber. Thanks to adhesive restorative materials, minimally invasive approaches are possible. In this context, the old question arises as to whether caries must be excavated completely, i.e., down to hard dentin, or whether it could be advantageous to leave some soft dentin, or even merely seal the whole lesion. To answer this question, the microbiological aspects of the lesion must be considered, along with the immunological response in the dental pulp, with the concurrent possible negative outcomes for the patient...
