The male gamete, the spermatozoon, is a highly specialized cell with a trimmed shape, far from the original cells of origin in the testicles. Their primary function is to deliver the paternal gene component of the new
Millions of fractures occur every year worldwide. Most of them heal uneventfully but 5-10 % show delayed healing or non-union. This leads to a great burden for the patients and high economic load for the healthcare system.
Confabulation is a relatively rare but debilitating memory disorder. It affects mainly (but not exclusively) brain injury survivors. Patients with confabulations have false memories, for example believing something happened to them which never in fact took place,
Zika virus has come to global attention even when it only causes mild symptoms to none. Then, why WHO declared a global emergency in 2016? Beside the rapid expansion of the outbreak through Asia and Latin America,
The work examines the fundamental relationship between an electron’s spin and a molecule’s chiral symmetry. The spin of an electron is a pure quantum mechanical property and specifies its intrinsic angular momentum. A common classical analogy for
New Zealand blackcurrant benefits resting cardiovascular function in trained cyclists – dose responses
Fruit and vegetable intake is known to promote health benefits. In part, this can be attributable to the polyphenol content. Anthocyanins are a type of polyphenol and are known to promote health benefits, including positive cardiovascular alterations
In aqueous solution, molecules with both polar head group and non polar tail (amphiphilic molecules) aggregate i.e., micelles. They absorb/uptake both polar and non polar molecules from solution as a universal host. Thus the horizon of catalysis, detergency,
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) for chronic musculoskeletal pain may be a red herring?
Dysfunction in the central serotonin and noradrenaline systems cause not only depression but also increased pain sensitivity. Many animal studies indicated that lumbar-intrathecal administration of serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) could ameliorate the pain sensitivity which
Conference Series invites all the participants from all over the world to attend “Annual Congress on Immunology & Immunotechnology” conference on September 13-14, 2018 at Zurich, Switzerland. The field of Immunology is growing rapidly and its development is making
Strain-specific growth of gut microbiota modulated with carbohydrate-rich-diet is relevant to host health
A growing number of studies have revealed that reversal of intestinal microbial dysbiosis via dietary intervention provides promising benefits to our health. Manipulation of gut microbiota to achieve optimum health benefits is attractive but realizing it precisely
Polychlorinated hydrocarbons such as hexachlorocyclohexane, hexachlorobenzene, heptachlor and chlorodane have long been known as effective and durable pesticides. Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (or 1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-bis(chlorophenyl)ethane, DDT) has also been used widely and is still used in a few countries to control
