Abstract

Water proton T(1)-NMRD profiles of the Gd(H(2)O)(8)(3+) complex have been recorded at three temperatures and at four concentrations of glycerol. The analysis is performed using both the generalized Solomon-Bloembergen-Morgan (GSBM) theory, and the stochastic Liouville approach (SLA). The GSBM approach uses a two processes dynamic model of the zero-field splitting (ZFS) correlation function whereas SLA uses a single process model. Both models reproduce the proton T(1)-NMRD profiles well. However, the model parameters extracted from the two analyses, yield different ESR X-band spectra which moreover do not reproduce the experimental ESR spectra. It is shown that the analyses of the proton T(1)-NMRD profiles recorded for a solution Gd(H(2)O)(8)(3+) ions are relatively insensitive to the slow modulation part of dynamic model of the ZFS interaction correlation function. The description of the electron spin system results in a very small static ZFS, while recent ESR lineshape analysis indicates that the contribution from the static ZFS is important. Analysis of proton T(1)-NMRD profiles of Gd(H(2)O)(8)(3+) complex do result in a description of the electron spin system but these microscopic parameters are uncertain unless they also ar...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
