Dy2O3 nanoparticle nano-magnets A previous study has explored the use of dextran coated Dy2O3 nanoparticles as an MRI contrast agent (Norek 2008). In another study, glucuronic acid was used to coat composite nanoparticles of Gd2O3 and Dy2O3 that served as a dual T1 and T2 relaxation agents (Tegafaw 2015). Dy(III) loaded tobacco mosaic virus nanomagnets T2… Continue reading Dysprosium nano-magnets
Argyrodite, as defined by Wikipedia, is a silver germanium sulfide. The quest for all solid state batteries has led to an argyrodite definition of Li6PS5X (X = Cl, Br, I). One reason Hanghofer and coauthors (2019) cite for this redefinition is the expense of Ge. These authors compared chloride, bromide, and iodide salts of this… Continue reading Argyrodite

Moringa seeds are a Food According to Romuald Saa and others at the University of Ngaounderein Cameroon, moringa is a food capable of providing a source of protein and other nutrients in regions of Sub Saharan Africa. Saa and coauthors stated a warning that unprocessed crude seeds of Moringa oleifera seeds are very toxic due… Continue reading What is Moringa?
Targeting KRAS in pancreatic cancer The Kirsten rat adenosarcoma (KRAS) gene codes for a member of the RAS small GTP binding protein family. RAS small G proteins are activated when they interact with growth factor bound receptors. They are inactivated when they interact with G=protein associated proteins (GAP). GAPs activate hydrolysis of GTP to GDP. … Continue reading novel pancreatic cancer treatment
