The differential effects of vowel and onset consonant lengthening on speech segmentation: Evidence from Taiwanese Southern Min.

J Acoust Soc Am 2021 Mar;149(3):1866

Department of Linguistics, University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Texas 78712, USA.

A review of previous speech segmentation research suggests the prediction that listeners of Taiwanese Southern Min (TSM), a lexical tone language, would exploit vowel lengthening and syllable-onset consonant lengthening to locate word ends and beginnings, respectively. Yet, correlations between segment duration and tone identity in tone languages along with some TSM-specific phonological phenomena may work against such use. Two artificial language learning experiments examined TSM listeners' use of the lengthening cues. Read More

Effects of aging on memory strategies: a validation of the Portuguese version of the Test of Memory Strategies.

Clin Neuropsychol 2018 Jan-Dec;32(sup1):133-151. Epub 2018 Jun 28.

d Laboratory of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience , Center for Biomedical Technology (Complutense University of Madrid and Technical University of Madrid) , Madrid , Spain.

Objective: Previous literature has shown that executive functions (EF) are related to performance in memory tasks. The fact that there are no psychometric tests that evaluate these two constructs simultaneously led a group of researchers to develop the Test of Memory Strategies (TSM). Given the potential importance of this instrument for neuropsychological evaluation, in this study, we aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of the TMS in Portuguese sample. Read More

Comprehensive pharmacogenetic profiling of the epidermal growth factor receptor pathway for biomarkers of response to, and toxicity from, cetuximab.

J Med Genet 2017 08 10;54(8):567-571. Epub 2017 Mar 10.

Division of Cancer and Genetics, School of Medicine, Cardiff University, Heath Park, Cardiff, UK.

Background: Somatic mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) intracellular signalling pathways predict non-response to cetuximab in the treatment of advanced colorectal cancer (aCRC). We hypothesised that common germline variants within these pathways may also play similar roles.

Methods: We analysed 54 potentially functional, common, inherited EGFR pathway variants in 815 patients with aCRC treated with oxaliplatin-fluoropyrimidine chemotherapy plus cetuximab. Read More

Ionic liquids supported on magnetic nanoparticles as a sorbent preconcentration material for sulfonylurea herbicides prior to their determination by capillary liquid chromatography.

Anal Bioanal Chem 2012 Sep 26;404(5):1529-38. Epub 2012 Jul 26.

Department of Analytical Chemistry and Food Technology, University of Castilla-La Mancha, Ciudad Real, Spain.

A magnetic material based on N-methylimidazolium ionic liquid and Fe(3)O(4) magnetic nanoparticles incorporated in a silica matrix has been used to extract and preconcentrate sulfonylurea herbicides, such as thifensulfuron methyl (TSM), metsulfuron methyl (MSM), triasulfuron (TS), tribenuron methyl (TBM) and primisulfuron methyl (PSM) from polluted water samples, prior to their analysis by capillary liquid chromatography with a diode array detector (DAD). Under the optimum conditions, this method allows the determination of TSM, MSM, TS, TBM and PSM in a linear range between 5 and 100 ng mL(-1), with relative standard deviation values lower than 5.3% (n = 10), in all cases.

Real-time monitoring of adhesion and aggregation of platelets using thickness shear mode (TSM) sensor.

Biosens Bioelectron 2007 Nov 31;23(4):575-82. Epub 2007 Jul 31.

School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems, Drexel University, United States.

Hemostasis is required to maintain vascular system integrity, but thrombosis, formation of a clot in a blood vessel, is one of the largest causes of morbidity and mortality in the industrialized world. Novel clinical and research tools for characterizing the hemostatic system are of continued interest, and the object of this research is to test the hypothesis that clinically relevant platelet function can be monitored using an electromechanical sensor. A piezoelectric thickness shear mode (TSM) biosensor coated with collagen-I fibers to promote platelet activation and adhesion was developed and tested for sensitivity to detect these primary events.

Sección de Biomembranas, Instituto de Medicina Experimental, Cátedra de Patología General y Fisiopatología, Escuela Luis Razetti, Facultad de Medicina, Universidad Central de Venezuela, Sabana Grande, Caracas, Venezuela.

Muscarinic activation of tracheal smooth muscle (TSM) involves a M(3)AChR/heterotrimeric-G protein/NPR-GC coupling mechanism. G protein activators Mastoparan (MAS) and Mastoparan-7 stimulated 4- and 10-fold the NPR-GC respectively, being insensitive to PTX and antibodies against Galpha(i/o) subfamily. Muscarinic and MAS stimulation of NPR-GC was blocked by antibodies against C-terminal of Galpha(q16), whose expression was confirmed by RT-PCR. Read More

Adhesion and rupture of liposomes mediated by electrostatic interaction monitored by thickness shear mode resonators.

Eur Biophys J 2004 Oct 5;33(6):555-61. Epub 2004 Mar 5.

Institute of Physical Chemistry, University of Mainz, Welder Weg 11, 55128 Mainz, Germany.

Adhesion and spreading of negatively charged unilamellar vesicles composed of POPG/POPC and DPPG/DPPC on positively charged self-assembly monolayers of 11-amino-1-undecanethiol were monitored by means of thickness shear mode (TSM) resonators with a fundamental frequency of 5 MHz. Changes of frequency and motional resistance upon vesicle adsorption were recorded as a function of surface charge density and lyotropic phase state of the lipids. From the readout of the TSM resonator, changes of the shape of the vesicles as well as the formation of supported lipid bilayers can be inferred in a quantitative manner. Read More
