The aim of this study was to examine 10 different shades of pink ceramic to determine which one best matches the mean color of human gingiva. Bar-shaped zirconia samples were fabricated and veneered with 1 of 10 pink zirconia veneering ceramics. The color of the gingiva at the central maxillary incisors of 20 healthy volunteers was compared to the pink veneering ceramics using a spectrophotometer (Spectroshade, MHT). The obtained color parameters L*, a*, and b* (CIELAB) of the gingiva and the ceramics were used to calculate the color difference (ΔE)...

A new rotamer-based strategy for negative allostery has been used to control host-host interactions and product yield upon anion complexation. Coassembly of anion dimers as guests inside two cyanostar macrocycles drives selection of one rotamer in which all ten steric groups get directed outward to destabilize triply stacked macrocycles. A large entropy penalty (Δ S) is quantified upon anion binding when the multiple dynamic rotamers collapse down to one.

Marine fishery stakeholders are beginning to consider and implement adaptation strategies in the face of growing consumer demand and potential deleterious climate change impacts such as ocean warming, ocean acidification, and deoxygenation. This study investigates the potential for development of a novel climate change - tolerant sea urchin fishery in southern California based on Strongylocentrotus fragilis (pink sea urchin), a deep-sea species whose peak density was found to coincide with a current trap-based spot prawn fishery ( Pandalus platyceros ) in the 200-300-m depth range...

Fruit ripening is a complex phenomenon involving a series of biochemical, physiological and organoleptic changes. Ripening process in mangosteen ( Garcinia mangostana Linn.) is unique of which the fruit will only ripen properly if harvested during its middle stage (emergence of purple/pink colour) but not earlier (green stage). The knowledge on the molecular mechanism and regulation behind this phenomenon is still limited. Hence, electrospray ionization liquid chromatography mass spectrometry (ESI-LC-MS) based metabolomics analysis was applied to determine the metabolome of mangosteen ripening...

Food allergies can greatly harm people's health, and therefore detecting allergens in foods is extremely important. By integrating loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) with a microfluidic chip, we have developed a method for detecting the allergen genes of peanut (Arachis hypogaea), sesame (Sesamum indicum), and soybean (Glycine max) using a colorimetric method suitable for the naked eye, known as the colorimetric LAMP microfluidic chip. In the presence of peanut, sesame, or soybean in the samples, the corresponding reaction well of the microfluidic chip will appear pink, or otherwise remain light brown...

BACKGROUND: Fruit color in apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) is ascribed mainly to the accumulation of anthocyanin pigments, and is an important trait for determining fruit market acceptance. Bagging is a commonly used treatment to enhance the red pigmentation in apple skin. The MdMYB1 transcription factor gene plays an important role in the biosynthesis of anthocyanin in apple after bag removal, but little is known about how MdMYB1 transcription is regulated. RESULTS: In this study, we investigated pigmentation in the non-red skinned cultivars 'Granny Smith' and 'Golden Delicious' after bag removal...

Here, we report transfer hydrogenation of nitroarenes to aminoarenes using 2-propanol as a hydrogen source and Ag-containing magnetically recoverable catalysts based on partially reduced graphene oxide (pRGO) sheets. X-ray diffraction and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy data demonstrated that, during the one-pot catalyst synthesis, formation of magnetite nanoparticles (NPs) is accompanied by the reduction of graphene oxide (GO) to pRGO. The formation of Ag0 NPs on top of magnetite nanoparticles does not change the pRGO structure...

Two experiments were performed to identify and compare the Basic Color Terms (BCTs) and the Basic Color Categories (BCCs) included in three dialects (Castilian, Mexican, and Uruguayan) of the Spanish language. Monolexemic Elicited lists were used in the first experiment to identify the BCTs of each dialect. Eleven BCTs appeared for the Spanish and the Mexican, and twelve did so for the Uruguayan. The six primary BCTs ( rojo "red," verde "green," amarillo "yellow," azul "blue," negro "black," and blanco "white") appeared in the three dialects...

Although the auditory brainstem response (ABR) is known to be an onset response, specific features of acoustic stimuli that affect the morphology of the ABR are not well understood. In this study, the effects of stimulus onset properties were investigated by measuring ABRs in seven bottlenose dolphins while systematically manipulating stimulus rise time and the amplitude of the sound pressure temporal envelope plateau. Stimuli consisted of spectrally pink (i.e., equal mean-square pressure in proportional frequency bands) noise bursts with linear rise (and fall) envelopes and frequency content from 10 to 160 kHz...

Background: Verruciform xanthoma is an uncommon benign tumor, which exhibits a wide range of clinical patterns. The occurrence of the lesion in patients with immune-mediated mucocutaneous diseases may suggest a role of localized epithelial cell damage and chronic inflammation in its pathogenesis. Case Report: A case of verruciform xanthoma on the tongue of a 56-year-old female with oral lichen planus is reported. An asymptomatic pink-white lesion with a granular surface was observed in the left lateral lingual border, which was closely associated with a white plaque and striae...

In this paper, a new kind of colorimetric chemsensor aiming at detecting Cr3+ has been synthesized, and it is based on the "Off-On" effect of a rhodamine derivative. Comparing with other metal irons (Na+ , K+ , Ni2+ , Hg2+ , Fe3+ , Mn2+ , Co2+ , Cd2+ , Cu2+ , Pb2+ , Zn2+ , Mg2+ , Ba2+ , Ag+ , Fe2+ , Ce3+ ), the chemsensor has a quick and accurate response to Cr3+ in H2 O-EtOH solution (4/1, v/v). There is an obvious change in color, from colorless to bright pink when Cr3+ is detected. According to the fitting curve based on Benesi-Hildebrand equation and working curve of absorption strength in UV-vis spectrum, the binding pattern of Cr3+ and the rhodamine derivative follows a 1:1 stoichiometry...
