Fatigue Performance of Double-Layered Asphalt Concrete Beams Reinforced with New Type of Geocomposites.

Materials (Basel) 2021 Apr 24;14(9). Epub 2021 Apr 24.

Faculty of Civil Engineering, Silesian University of Technology, 44-100 Gliwice, Poland.

The reinforcement of asphalt layers with geosynthetics has been used for several decades, but proper evaluation of the influence of these materials on pavement fatigue life is still a challenging task. The presented study investigates a novel approach to the reinforcement of asphalt layers using a new type of geogrid composite, in which square or hexagonal polypropylene stiff monolithic paving grid with integral junctions is bonded to polypropylene non-woven paving fabric. The laboratory fatigue tests were performed on large asphalt concrete beams reinforced with the new type of geocomposite. Read More

Use of Extended Cover Factor Theory in UV Protection of Woven Fabric.

Polymers (Basel) 2021 Apr 7;13(8). Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Textiles, Graphics Art and Design, Faculty for Natural Sciences and Engineering, University of Ljubljana, Snežniška 5, 1000 Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The paper presents an extension of existed cover factor theory more suitable for the evaluation of light penetration through a net woven fabrics structure. It also introduces a new simplified model of predicting the ultraviolet (UV) protective properties of woven fabrics assuming that the coefficient of reflection (K), transmission (K), and absorption (K) of constitutive yarns are known. Since usually they are not, the procedure of preparation of simulation of proper woven fabric samples without interlacing and with known constructional parameters is also presented. Read More

Protean Regulation of Leukocyte Function by Nuclear Lamins.

Trends Immunol 2021 Apr 27;42(4):323-335. Epub 2021 Feb 27.

Molecular Signaling Section, Laboratory of Molecular Immunology, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Rockville, MD 20892, USA. Electronic address:

The leukocyte nucleus must be sufficiently elastic to squeeze through tissue barriers during migration, but not so collapsible as to risk damaging chromatin. The proper balance is struck in part by the composition of the nuclear lamina, a flexible meshwork composed mainly of intermediate filaments woven from type A and type B lamin proteins, that is located subjacent to the inner nuclear membrane. There is now increasing evidence that, in addition to influencing nuclear shape and stiffness and cell migration, lamins and lamin-interacting proteins may also interact functionally with chromatin to influence leukocyte gene expression, differentiation, and effector function, including T cell differentiation, B cell somatic hypermutation, and the formation of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETosis).

A repeated triple lysine motif anchors complexes containing bone sialoprotein and the type XI collagen A1 chain involved in bone mineralization.

J Biol Chem 2021 Feb 19:100436. Epub 2021 Feb 19.

Center of Biomedical Research Excellence in Matrix Biology, Department of Biological Sciences, Boise State University, Boise, ID 83725.

While details remain unclear, initiation of woven bone mineralization is believed to be mediated by collagen and potentially nucleated by bone sialoprotein (BSP). Interestingly, our recent publication showed that BSP and type XI collagen form complexes in mineralizing osteoblastic cultures. To learn more, we examined the protein composition of extracellular sites of de novo hydroxyapatite deposition which were enriched in BSP and Col11a1 containing an alternatively spliced "6b" exonal sequence.

Neomedia Repair of the Valsalva Sinus in the Treatment of Acute Type-A Aortic Dissection: Long-term Effectiveness and a Case of Pathology.

Ann Vasc Dis 2020 Sep;13(3):248-254

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Amagasaki General Medical Center.

Although numerous surgical techniques are employed to treat acute Stanford type A aortic dissection (ATAAD), controversy remains over which is the best procedure for aortic root reconstruction. Among the various techniques utilized, neomedia repair is considered to be more promising than adhesive-only repair for the treatment of a dissected aortic root. We experienced a series of neomedia sinus Valsalva repair using woven polyester fabric, and evaluated the aortic root diameter by computed tomography and severity of aortic valve insufficiency by transthoracic echocardiography.

Relational surrogacies excluded from the French bioethics model: a euro-american perspective in the light of Marcel Mauss and Louis Dumont.

Reprod Biomed Soc Online 2020 Nov 14;11:24-29. Epub 2020 Oct 14.

CESPRA, École des hautes études en sciences sociales, Paris, France.

In the French context of prohibition of surrogacy by a legislative framework established in 1994, couples are using surrogacy abroad to create their family. Why does surrogacy not find room in the landscape of donor-conceived families in France? Based on a survey among French intended parents using surrogacy in the USA and Belgium, and a 2-year ethnography on medical practice in a fertility centre in Belgium, this study shows that surrogacy is, in fact, a particular type of gift: the gift of gestational capacity. The preconceptional journey in Belgium or in the USA is a relational process that allows complementary places and statuses to be acquired. Read More

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) deficiency enhances intramembranous osteogenesis following stress fracture in mice.

Bone 2021 02 10;143:115737. Epub 2020 Nov 10.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Washington University in St. Louis, MO, United States of America; Department of Biomedical Engineering, Washington University in St. Louis, MO, United States of America.

Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is highly upregulated in response to skeletal injury, suggesting it plays a role in the inflammatory phase of fracture repair. However, the impact of IL-6 on successful repair remains incompletely defined. Therefore, we investigated the role of IL-6 in two models of fracture repair (full fracture and stress fracture) using 12-week old IL-6 global knockout mice (IL-6 KO) and wild type (WT) littermate controls.

One-dimensional organic artificial multi-synapses enabling electronic textile neural network for wearable neuromorphic applications.

Sci Adv 2020 Jul 10;6(28). Epub 2020 Jul 10.

KU-KIST Graduate School of Converging Science and Technology, Korea University, 145 Anam-ro, Seongbuk-gu, Seoul 02841, Republic of Korea.

One-dimensional (1D) devices are becoming the most desirable format for wearable electronic technology because they can be easily woven into electronic (e-) textile(s) with versatile functional units while maintaining their inherent features under mechanical stress. In this study, we designed 1D fiber-shaped multi-synapses comprising ferroelectric organic transistors fabricated on a 100-μm Ag wire and used them as multisynaptic channels in an e-textile neural network for wearable neuromorphic applications. The device mimics diverse synaptic functions with excellent reliability even under 6000 repeated input stimuli and mechanical bending stress. Read More
