This study examined the sustainability of generating renewable diesel via hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) of biomass from a rotating algal biofilm reactor. Pilot-scale growth studies and laboratory-scale HTL experiments were used to validate an engineering system model. The engineering system model served as the foundation to evaluate the economic feasibility and environmental impact of the system at full scale. Techno-economic results indicate that biomass feedstock costs dominated the minimum fuel selling price (MFSP), with a base case of $104...

Objective The aim of this study was to analyse the significant variables for vaginal discharge after ultrasound-guided percutaneous microwave ablation (PMWA) therapy. Materials and methods PMWA was performed on 117 patients with adenomyosis from October 2012 to July 2014. The presence or absence, colour, quantity and duration of vaginal discharge, which was different from pre-ablation, were recorded within 1 year after PMWA. Patients were categorised into G1 (n = 26, without vaginal discharge), G2 (n = 40, vaginal discharge lasting 1 to 19 days), and G3 (n = 51, vaginal discharge lasting ≥20 days) groups...

OBJECTIVE: Verbal memory difficulties are the most widely reported and persistent cognitive deficit associated with early onset marijuana use. Yet, it is not known what memory stages are most impaired in those with early marijuana use. METHOD: Forty-eight young adults, aged 18-25, who used marijuana at least once per week and 48 matched nonusing controls (CON) completed the California Verbal Learning Test, Second Edition (CVLT-II). Marijuana users were stratified by age of initial use: early onset users (EMJ), who started using marijuana at or before age 16 (n = 27), and late onset marijuana user group (LMJ), who started using marijuana after age 16 (n = 21)...

BACKGROUND: The Ethiopian Medical Journal (EMJ) is a peer-reviewed journal, now 50 years old. Many medical journals, including EMJ, follow a peer review system that has evolved from the 18th century process for reviewing submitted manuscripts. However, not much is known about peer review and editorial processes by many authors who submit manuscripts to the EMJ. OBJECTIVE: To describe procedures related to EMJ peer-review and editorial decision making and asses the status of manuscripts submitted to the journal in the ten year period between 2001 and 2010...

BACKGROUND: The Ethiopian Medical Journal celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2012. To mark this anniversary reviewing a bit of history, and addressing the current status and challenges of the Journal would therefore be appropriate. This paper attempts to highlight some important developments and give a quick3review of the papers published over the last five decades. METHODS: All the EMJ publications were retrieved using both manual and electronic searches. EMJ archives, Central medical Library of the College of Health Sciences of Addis Ababa University and electronic PubMed citations were used as sources of database...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the inter- and intraobserver variability of three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound assessment of the endometrial-myometrial junction (EMJ), and to assess demographic and physiological factors that affect the quality of its imaging. METHODS: Women attending our gynecology clinic, who were deemed to have normal uteri on transvaginal ultrasound examination, were enrolled in this prospective study. They underwent 3D volume acquisition of the entire uterus in order to acquire a coronal view of the organ...

Reliable recognition of the promoters in eukaryotic genomes remains an open issue. This is largely owing to the poor understanding of the features of the structural-functional organization of the eukaryotic promoters essential for their function and recognition. However, it was demonstrated that detection of ensembles of regulatory signals characteristic of specific promoter groups increases the accuracy of promoter recognition and prediction of specific expression features of the queried genes. The ARGO_Motifs package was developed for the detection of sets of region-specific degenerate oligonucleotide motifs in the regulatory regions of the eukaryotic genes...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between the formation of pseudoepitheliomatous hyperplasia (PEH) and the mechanism of loss of some components from the basement membrane in epithelial interstitial junction (EIJ) in the treatment of cutaneous wounds, when formation of PEH lesion was induced. METHODS: Morphological change in epithelial tissue was observed with histopathologic method and electronic microscopy in 11 specimens of PEH lesions and 6 specimens of normal skin adjacent to PEH (PEH-N) from 11 patients with injured skin...

In non-transgenic host plants and protoplasts alfalfa mosaic virus displays a strong need for coat protein when starting an infection cycle. The "protection model" states that the three viral RNAs must have a few coat protein subunits at their 3' termini in order to protect them in the host cell against degradation by 3'- to- 5' exoribonucleases [Neeleman L, Van der Vossen EAG, Bol JF (1993) Virology 196: 883-887]. We demonstrated that the naked genome RNAs are slightly infectious, if the inoculation is done at very high concentrations, or if it is preceded by an additional inoculation with the RNAs 1 and 2 (encoding subunits for the viral RNA polymerase)...

Alfamo- and ilarviruses are characterized by the deficiency of their genomes (three messenger-sense RNAs) to start an infection cycle. The RNAs are in capsids built from a single species of protein of about 24 kD. A few dimers of this coat protein per RNA molecule are sufficient to activate the genome. Since the first description of genome activation [Bol JF, van Vloten-Doting L, Jaspars EMJ (1971) Virology 46: 73-85] three models have been proposed concerning its mechanism: the protection, the replicase and the messenger release hypotheses...

Transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) was immunolocalized within differentiated odontoblasts and ameloblasts while LAP-beta1 was detected at the apicol pole of odonotoblasts and ameloblasts and in predentine. Anti-LAP-beta1 antibodies also stained the epithelial-mesenchymal junction (EMJ). Decorin was immunolocalized in young functional odonotoblasts and in both predentine and dentine. Biglycan was similarly distributed but absent from dentine. Immunostaining with anti-latent TGF-beta1 binding protein-1 (LTBP-1) showed fibrillar structures located at the EMJ and between predontoblasts and odontoblasts; at older states staining was restricted to the dental papilla and sac...

Since juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (EMJ) and/or Janz syndrome is a primary syndrome which persists throughout life, there should be permanent behavioural hygiene and treatment to keep it under control. Suspension of treatment is nearly always followed by recurrence. Although some researchers report relapses of 75% on suspension of treatment, Janz (1995), cited by Dreifuss points out that this rises to 91% in patients who suspend treatment after two years with no crises. This is, to date, the highest documented level of relapses in epilepsy (5,6,12)...

Homozygous typing cells (HTC) and responder cells from a panel of randomly selected unrelated caucasians were used in a study of the HLA-Dw6 antigen complex. Using HTC characterized by the Eighth International Histocompatibility Workshop, the Dw6 specificity was shown to be a broadly defined, heterogeneous cluster that could be subdivided. An HTC from our laboratory, 8W146, and a second locally identified cell, EMJ, were used to define one clearly distinguishable subcluster of Dw6, provisionally termed "6.1...

To determine whether myometrial smooth muscle is newly produced at the endometrio-myometrial junction (EMJ) of the adult uterus, we examined the ultrastructure of mesenchymal components at this site during the menstrual cycle and during early pregnancy. Cells having some features of smooth muscle were found among the usual endometrial stromal cells in every specimen examined. In the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle, such cells resembled myofibroblasts, but in the luteal phase and during early pregnancy, they had more distinct cytoplasmic filaments with dense bodies and dense plaques, and other fairly well developed characteristics of smooth muscle...
