Ghrelin, obesity and atherosclerosis
(New York : Nova Science Publishers Inc., 2012)
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is common cause of death in humans and its major underlying pathology is atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease that predisposes to coronary artery disease (CAD), ...
Functional ibuprofen-loaded cationic nanoemulsion: Development and optimization for dry eye disease treatment
(Elsevier BV, 2020)
Abstract: Inflammation plays a key role in dry eye disease (DED) affecting millions of people worldwide. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can be used topically to act on the inflammatory component of DED, ...
Optimization of microbial fuel cell operation using Danube River sediment
One of the main global focuses of mankind today is the required switch to new energy sources. Generating energy from waste is one of the potential solutions that can be achieved using microbial fuel cells (MFCs). Microorganisms, ...
Biocompatible and degradable scaffolds based on 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate, gelatin and poly(beta amino ester) crosslinkers
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, Oxford, 2018)
Gelatin hydrogels have great potential in regenerative medicine but their weak mechanical properties are a major drawback for the load-bearing applications, such as scaffolds for tissue engineering. To overcome this ...
Role of aromatic amino acids in amyloid self-assembly
Amyloids are proteins of a cross-β structure found as deposits in several diseases and also in normal tissues (nails, spider net, silk). Aromatic amino acids are frequently found in amyloid deposits. Although they are not ...
Kome će stići pismo adresirano imenima elemenata iz Periodnog sistema
(Centar za promociju nauke, 2019)
Да бисмо одговорили на ово необично питање, морамо да се осврнемо на неколико прича о Периодном систему елемената. Како ред налаже, почећемо од његовог открића, преко развоја, а завршићемо приказом његовог данашњег облика.
Catalytic activities of Pt thin films electrodeposited onto Bi coated glassy carbon substrate toward formic acid electrooxidation
Formic acid oxidation was studied on platinum-coated bismuth deposits on glassy carbon substrate. The catalyst was prepared by a two-step process using chronocoulometry, i.e. controlled amount of Bi was electrodeposited ...
Shape evolution of carbon supported Pt nanoparticles: From synthesis to application
(Elsevier Science Bv, Amsterdam, 2016)
In this research, a water-in-oil microemulsion method with HCl as a capping agent was applied to synthesize carbon supported Pt catalysts. Varying the concentration of HCl caused changes in the shape of obtained nanoparticles, ...
Eliminating dissolution of platinum-based electrocatalysts at the atomic scale
(Nature Publishing Group, 2020)
A remaining challenge for deployment of proton-exchange membrane fuel cells is the limited durability of Pt-nanoscale materials that operate at high voltages during the cathodic oxygen reduction reaction. In this work, ...
Implications of oxidative stress in occupational exposure to lead on a cellular level
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, Abingdon, 2015)
The aim of this study was to determine oxidative alterations leading to cellular dysfunctions in Pb-exposed subjects by evaluating damage to all major classes of biomolecules in the cell, lipid peroxidation, protein and ...
