Study of nonlinear Poisson-Boltzmann equation for a rodlike macromolecule using the pseudo-spectral method
Abstract: The pseudo-spectral method with the Chebyshev and Legendre polynomials are used in order to compute the electric potential for a rodlike macromolecule located in salt free solution via the Poisson-Boltzmann equation (PBE). Afterwards, verification of the method is demonstrated for a long macromolecule as well as a large plate for which the behaviors can […]

Therapeutic impacts of microRNAs in breast cancer by their roles in regulating processes involved in this disease
Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women around the world. So far, many attempts have been made to treat this disease, but few effective treatments have been discovered. In this work, we reviewed the related articles in the limited period of time, 2000–2016, through search in PubMed, Scopus database, Google Scholar, […]

Improving the Surface Properties of Gray Cast Iron through In – Situ Alloying
Abstract :Conventionally, alloying elements are being added to the whole melt; however, in this research in-situ surface alloying of gray cast iron was employed to improve surface properties of the castings. Wires of pure copper with diameters of 0.4 and 0.8 mm were inserted and fixed at bottom of sand molds before melting. Chemical composition […]

Flexible and biocompatible high-performance solid-state micro-battery for implantable orthodontic system
There is an increasing demand for advanced healthcare electronics. That can be powered by physically flexible, biocompatible and high performance energy storage devices. However, existing technologies do not allow a combination of all favorable attributes in a single system. Now Muhammad Hussain and co-workers from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia […]

Thermostable chitinase from Cohnella sp. A01: isolation and product optimization
Abstract : Twelve bacterial strains isolated from shrimp farming ponds were screened for their growth activity on chitin as the sole carbon source. The highly chitinolytic bacterial strain was detected by qualitative cup plate assay and tentatively identified to be Cohnella sp. A01 based on 16S rDNA sequencing and by matching the key morphological, physiological, […]

KAUST researchers develop new method to enhance the ability of colloidal quantum dot solar cells to convert the sun’s energy into electricity
Abstract : In recent years colloidal quantum dot (CQD) photovoltaics have developed rapidly because of novel device architectures and robust surface passivation schemes. Achieving controlled net doping remains an important unsolved challenge for this field. Herein we present a general molecular doping platform for CQD solids employing a library of metal–organic complexes. Low effective ionization […]

Treating wastewater with solar irradiation shows promise in reducing two E. coli strains but a resilient strain persists
Nada Al-Jassim and coworkers conducted experiments to verify whether solar irradiation can be used to kill E.coli strains in wastewater. ABSTRACT : This study examined the decay kinetics and molecular responses of two Escherichia coli strains upon solar irradiation. The first is E. coli PI-7, a virulent and antibiotic-resistant strain that was isolated from wastewater […]
