About Resources for the Future and RFF Press

Founded in 1952, RFF pioneered the application of economics as a tool to develop more effective policy about the use and conservation of natural resources. Its scholars continue to employ social science methods to analyze critical issues concerning pollution control, energy policy, land and water use, hazardous waste, climate change, biodiversity, and the environmental challenges of developing countries.

Types and effects of rancidity

Hydroperoxides may form by autoxidation, but an alternative pathway is by the action of the enzyme lipoxygenase on polyunsaturated fatty acids. Lipoxygenase occurs in various plants including soybeans, corn, potato, tomatoes, cucumber, oat seed and barley seed. It is of significance in the development of flavour in vegetables, but in oilseed crops the action of lipoxygenase before and during oil extraction may lead to the hydroperoxides that subsequently decompose to form off-flavours in the oil. Hydroperoxides may also form by photo-oxidation if light acts on a fat in the presence of a sensitiser. However, the decomposition of hydroperoxides is a low energy reaction for the initiation of autoxidation, and the composition of the volatile off-flavours that are formed are normally characteristic of autoxidation products, no matter how the initial hydroperoxides are formed. As a free-radical reaction, autoxidation proceeds in three distinct steps (Fig. 2.2). The first step is initiation...

Myocardial Metabolism

Europe), are p-FOX inhibitors, which inhibit fatty acid metabolism and promote glycolysis, potentially making the heart more energy efficient. Several clinical trials have demonstrated the potential benefits of trimetazidine in ischemic heart disease (66-69). However, a large, randomized, placebo-controlled trial recruiting 19,725 patients with acute myocardial infarction did not demonstrate short- or long-term mortality benefit (72,73). More recently, a small, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study demonstrated improved exercise capacity and ST-segment depression during post-myocardial infarction exercise testing (74).

Cell Death Outcomes General Considerations

Historically, cell death has been divided into two generic categories apoptosis, which requires energy and in which the cell plays an active role, and necrosis, which occurs accidentally, does not require energy consumption and is considered as a passive, uncontrolled cell death program. Among the conceptually opposite cell death forms, apoptosis is the best understood. This death program has been defined as developmentally programmed and ordered cellular response. Apoptosis is initiated by cell rounding and subsequent detachment from the surrounding cells. Chromatin condenses into crescent-like forms abutting the inner nuclear membrane. Plasma membrane convolutes and gives rise to characteristic vesicles containing cellular organelles and cytoplasm, known as the apoptotic bodies. Apoptosis is generally not accompanied by inflammation since macrophages or neighbouring cells engulf the formed apoptotic bodies before the loss of plasma membrane integrity (Kerr et al. 1972). In contrast...

Combined Intravenous and Intra Arterial Thrombolysis

The IMS II objective was to continue investigating the feasibility of the combined IV and IA approach to restore cerebral blood flow in acute stroke patients.37 The difference between IMS I and IMS II is that IMS II used the EKOS microcath-eter to deliver the rt-PA into the clot, using microcatheter ultrasound technology. The rationale is that the ultrasound energy delivered in the clot loosens the fibrin strands, increasing the permeability and penetration of the thrombolytic agents. In IMS II, patients aged 18-80 years with a baseline NIHSS > 10 were given IV rt-PA (0.6 mg kg, 60 mg maximum over 30 minutes) within 3 hours of stroke onset. Patients with eligible clot in extra- or intracranial cerebral vessels were subsequently administered up to 22 mg IA rt-PA, as well as low-energy ultrasound energy at the clot site using the EKOS ultrasound catheter for a maximum period of 2 hours of infusion or until thrombolysis was achieved. If the EKOS catheter could not access the clot,...

AMPactivated protein kinase AMPK

AMPK plays a central role in cellular metabolism as a key fuel gauge and regulator of energy consumption and storage 52,53 . AMPK is a serine-threonine kinase that consists of heterotrimeric a, p, and g subunits. The a subunit possesses the catalytic site the p subunit contains a glycogen-binding domain and the g subunit has the AMP-binding site 54 . AMPK is ubiquitously expressed in various tissues and is found in cytosol. Under conditions of energy depletion (low ATP vs. AMP ratio), AMPK is activated by AMP and leads to phosphory-lation of a number of target molecules that result in increases in ATP-generating processes, such as fatty acid oxidation, muscle glucose intake, and cardiac glycolysis. Simultaneously, AMPK also inhibits ATP-consuming pathways, such as fatty acid synthesis, cholesterol synthesis, and gluconeogenesis, thus restoring overall cellular energy homeostasis 55,56 . In terms of lipid metabolism, enzymes that are inhibited by AMPK phosphorylation include the...

Glucoseinduced conformational change to explain GK cooperativity

Crystal structures of the apo form of GK and the liganded forms helped confirm the proposals regarding how cooperativity with respect to glucose is achieved 7 . The apo structure was found to exist in a low-energy super-open conformation, which was determined to be an inactive conformation because certain critical residues were absent from the active site. Upon binding glucose, a slow conformational change takes place to a higher-energy structure, the open form''. A subsequent fast conformational change to the closed form gives a complex that is able to bind the Mg ATP2- cofactor, leading to the occurrence of the catalytic reaction and generation and release of products, G-6-P and ADP. The catalytic cycle continues in the fast cycle as long as glucose concentrations remain high, bypassing the low-energy super-open conformation, and involves a reduced degree of protein dynamics relative to the slow cycle. When the glucose concentration drops, the conformation slowly relaxes back to the...

PARP1 Activation Induced Energy Failure The Suicide Hypothesis

Under homeostatic conditions, the main endoergonic processes of neurons are ion-pumping (responsible for about 50 of ATP hydrolysis), biosynthesis of macro-molecules (proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleic acids) and neurotransmitters, intracellular molecular transport and phosphorylation. All these ATP-consuming processes are almost totally impaired in neurons of the ischemic core. Conversely, in the ischemic penumbra, physiologic cellular functions are partially maintained. At this level, numerous strategies capable of reducing energy consumption by neurons and glia have profound neuroprotective effects (Beal 2000). In this regard, several lines of evidence demonstrate that inhibition of poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation in

Mechanisms of action nutrients 651 General nutrition

Although prolonged energy, protein or micronutrient malnutrition may increase an individual's risk of developing cancer, perhaps by reducing the effectiveness of the immune system, life expectancy in societies with large malnourished populations is low, and infectious diseases are more likely to be the principal causes of illness and mortality. In prosperous Western societies, over-consumption of energy, coupled with inadequate exercise, appears to be a major risk factor for cancer. The World Cancer Research Fund report on diet and cancer4 made some general recommendations on food supply, eating and related factors. For individuals, the general advice was to consume nutritionally adequate and varied diets based predominantly on fruits, vegetables, pulses and minimally processed starchy foods. Overweight, defined as body mass index (BMI weight in kg height in metre 2) in excess of 25 is associated with a rise in the relative risk of most cancers, and frank obesity is particularly...

E B Wilson 18561939 Mitochondria and Oxidative Phosphorylation

Virtually all biological processes require chemical energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). In humans and other eukaryotic nonplant organisms, about 90 of the cellular ATP is generated by oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) in cytoplasmic organelles called mitochondria (sing., mitochondrion). In Greek, mito means thread, and chondrion means granule. Mitochondria are spherical, rod-shaped, or long filamentous (threadlike) structures found in almost every type of human cell. The average width of a mitochondrion is about 0.5mm, and the length is about 2mm or longer. The cells of the brain, skeletal muscle, heart, kidney, and liver have high energy demands and, consequently, contain thousands of mitochondria, whereas cells with low energy requirements have only between 10 and 100 mitochondria. Structurally, a mitochondrion has an outer and inner membrane that partitions it into two compartments. one compartment consists of the space (intermembrane space) lying between the two...

In situ hybridization

The use of 3H- and 35S-labeled probes is favored because their decays are relatively low energy and the particle emitted is easily captured by x-ray emulsion near the site of its decay. Alternatively, a nonradioactive reagent can be incorporated into the probe DNA and detected with a secondary color or fluorescent reagent (FISH). When the micrograph is developed and observed, areas of RNA or DNA hybridizing to the specific probe are visible. Like immunohistochemical methods, in situ hybridization analysis can also be applied to larger scales. A histological section of a tissue or organ can be made, fixed, and then hybridized with an appropriate probe in order to locate areas where a specific viral transcript or viral genomes are being replicated. Indeed, the method can be applied to whole animals if they are small enough to allow sectioning. LP Villarreal and colleagues determined the effect of site of infection on the involvement of organs in...

Preconditioning And Hibernation

The state of increased tolerance to ischemia has been compared to the reduced dependency on oxygen and nutrients that enables hibernation (89). According to this view, preconditioning reprograms brain cells into a hibernation-like state by switching the gene expression profile to one representing a higher state of ischemic tolerance (35,90). Genetic reprogramming into the new protective phenotype involves downregulation of a large number of genes that encode ion channels and enzymes involved in protein turnover, glucose metabolism, and cell cycle regulation (90). Reduced expression of these genes might represent a state of reduced energy consumption and enhanced tolerance to energy deprivation observed in preconditioned and hibernating brains.

Moving Beyond Confocal Imaging

These shortcomings are circumvented by a newer technology called 2-photon microscopy, which can create optical sections at depths of up to 1 mm and causes much less photobleaching in a thick specimen. The theoretical basis of 2-photon microscopy was established by Maria Goep-pert-Mayer in her doctoral thesis in 1931. She showed that two low-energy photons, as opposed to a single high-energy photon, can excite a fluorescence molecule, causing emission of light. This concept was incorporated into microscopy by Watt Webb's group at Cornell University in 1990 by using a laser pulsing at 80 Mhz with a pulse length of 100 femtoseconds. This gives the very high flux of photons required for simultaneous absorption of two photons by the fluorphore. The only point in the light path where there is a high probability of simultaneous absorption of two photons is at the focal plane of the microscope. Thus an optical section is created without the use of a pinhole, and the light absorption that...

Cooling And Cellular Energetics

Mitochondrial electron transport and ATP production are surprisingly robust in mammalian cells after cooling. For example, it has been known for some time27 that in kidneys subjected to oxygenated hypothermic perfusion for up to 48 hours, both the total content of adenine nucleotides and relative ratios of ATP to lower phosphorylated-state adenine nucleotides could be maintained unchanged compared to those measured in kidneys at normal body temperatures. This is true metabolic turnover, rather than a static maintenance of an existing pool, as indicated by experiments on liver.28 In organs previously depleted of ATP by cold hypoxic storage, a progressive restoration of ATP over several minutes could be shown when oxygenated perfusion was resumed. It has also been known for some time that ATP is consumed at hypothermia for homeostatic ion pumping,29 as addition of uncoupling agents in stable, oxygenated organs caused a massive release of intra-cellular potassium. Similar effects of...

Comparison To Natural Cold And Hypoxic Survival

Although hibernation and natural cold tolerance are complex fields too detailed to discuss in depth here, there are a few points that are worth making in comparison to the aims of organ preservation techniques. As discussed above, the maintenance of cellular homeostasis is as important for the survival of cold- and hypoxia-tolerant species as it is to normal homeotherms. Across the spectrum of species that survive in extreme environments (from lower vertebrates such as turtles to true hibernators such as ground squirrels on the North American continent), the necessity is to balance energy consumption with production under conditions in which oxygen and nutrients may be limiting. This requires a range of responses that have been defined as defense and rescue.73 There are integrated gene-regulated responses that downregulate energy consumption in the resting condition to a new hypometabolic state.74 The changes range from alterations in membrane channel activity in individual cells73 to...

Teresa Cunha and Raquel Aires Barros 1 Introduction

In batch processes, equilibration is usually done in agitated vessels, and in mixer-settler devices. A few minutes of gentle stirring are normally enough to obtain phase and partition equilibrium (6). The fast approach to equilibrium is owing to the low interfacial tension between the two phases, which enables the formation of very small droplets and thus a large interface for mass transfer with low energy input (6). Phase separation is performed either by settling under gravitational force for fast-settling systems like PEG-salt systems, or by continuously operating common centrifugal separators (6).

Gamma Rays and Detection

In the electromagnetic energy spectrum, the highest energy photons (shortest wavelength, highest frequency) are gamma rays. Gamma rays arise out of nuclear events during radioactive decay. For in vivo imaging purposes, the best gamma rays are of low energy, in the range of 100-511 keV. Gamma rays in this energy range can be efficiently stopped and therefore measured A typical mobile Anger gamma camera for planar imaging is shown in Fig. 1A. Gamma camera imaging requires the use of a collimator, a solidly constructed gamma-ray attenuator (usually made from lead) that is placed between the subject and the gamma-ray detector. There are various types of collimators, some more specific for low-energy gamma rays, while other are specific for higher ranges of gamma-ray energies. A pinhole collimator and parallel-hole collimator is shown in Figs. IB and ID, respectively. The pinhole collimator has a small round hole at the end (inset, Fig. 1C) that allows projection of the gamma rays onto the...

Other Targets of Antibacterial Drugs

Dihydropteroate is assembled enzymatically from the 7,8-dihydropterin pyrophosphate precursor, itself elaborated from the common nucleotide GTP and cosubstrate p-aminobenzoate (PABA). The chemical transformation is unusual, the construction of a CH2-NH amine bond by displacement of an alcoholate oxygen. In this case the oxygen had been converted into a low-energy-leaving

Dedication

Antony Leslie (Tony) Wilson was born in Brighton in 1929 and educated at Vardean Grammar School and Kings College, London, where he took an honours degree in chemistry. He worked for eighteen years at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment, Salwick and the Central Electricity Research Laboratories, Leather-head, before joining the Water Research Association at Medmenham later to become a constituent laboratory of the Water Research Centre in 1968. He remained with the Centre until his retirement in 1980, when he held the position of Manager of the Analysis and Instrumentation Division.

Molecular Alignment

In our study, the conformation deduced from the X-ray data for FPL 64176, one of the most active compounds in the data set, was used as the starting point for the construction of 3D structures of the 36 compounds. Substituent variations were built in Chem-X using standard bond lengths and angles. The structures were not fully optimized. Full optimization would have introduced small differences in the bond angles, bond lengths and torsion angles of the common portions of the molecules in the test set, and this would have given rise to noise in the GRID analysis. In this case, all the molecules shared a common molecular fragment, a dimethyl substituted pyrrole ring, which is known to be important for binding. Structural variation was introduced on the phenyl ring at the ortho position with respect to the linking keto group adjoining the pyrrole ring. Initial molecular alignment involved overlaying the pyrrole ring of each structure, followed by conformational analysis of the side chain....

Photosynthesis

The general reaction for photosynthesis, where water is the electron donor, can be written as in Eq. (5.7). Extraction of electrons from water yields molecular oxygen. Therefore, the oxygen that is critical for aerobic respiration is simply a photosynthetic by-product. The low-energy electrons obtained from water are excited by energy from light and stored as high-energy electrons in NADPH. The stored electrons are then used to reduce carbon dioxide, producing a unit of carbohydrate (CH2O). For a couple of billion years, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) was the primary source of electrons. Today, H2S serves as an electron source for only some bacteria.

Summary

Autoradiography is an image formed on photographic film by radiation from a radioactive substance. The radioactive substance could be from a radiometric assay or from metabolic labelling of tissue. In the case of biochemical assays, the labelled products are separated from the radioactive substrates either by extraction or separation using chromatographic techniques, commonly thin layer chromatography (TLC see also Sec. C.2). The TLC plates can then be directly exposed to the photographic plates. In the case of labelled tissues, the compound of interest that could be a metabolite or nucleic acid is radiolabelled and incubated with the tissue. The tissue is washed and then exposed to the photographic plates. The localisation of the radioactive spot indicates the localisation of the molecules of interest. In specialised cases such as Western blots or Southern blots, the samples are probed with a radioactive probe or enzyme that induces the formation of photons. This will again darken...

Mechanisms

Rate of 5 pulses s through a flexible 1-mm optical fiber. It takes approx 20 pulses to create a transmural channel. Despite the low energy level and short pulse duration, very high levels of peak power are delivered to the tissue so that with each pulse there is an explosion (Fig. 4). Additionally, the fiber is advanced manually through the myocardium, and it is therefore impossible to know whether the channel is being created by the kinetic energy delivered via the mechanical effects of the fiber or whether there has been enough time for thermal dissipation prior to the next pulse.

Contraction

Sliding Filament Mechanism

Myosin releases the ADP and phosphate and flexes into a bent, low-energy position, tugging the thin filament along with it. This is called the power stroke. The head remains bound to actin until it binds a new ATP. being similar to the way you would pull in a boat anchor hand over hand. When the myosin head cocks, it is like your hand reaching out to grasp the anchor rope. When it flexes back into the low-energy position, it is like your elbow flexing to pull on the rope and draw the anchor up a little bit. When you let go of the rope with one hand, you hold onto it with the other, alternating hands until the anchor is pulled in. Similarly, when one myosin head releases the actin in preparation for the recovery stroke,

Grid

Mammography Grids

Grids specifically designed for mammography are necessary since the materials and construction of general radiographic grids result in excessive attenuation of the unscattered portion of the low-energy mammographic x-ray beam, as well as increased geometric unsharpness due to the thickness of the grid assembly (ACR, 1993 Feig, 1987 Friedrich and Weskamp, 1978 NCRP, 1986). Special purpose mammographic grids are extremely thin, with lead grid strips, or septa, only about 1 mm in height. The septa are typically 16 pm thick and the interspaces are about 300 pm wide (Feig, 1987). The grid ratio (the height of septa relative to the distance between the septa) is usually in the range of 4 1 to 5 1 and the grid should have about 32 septa (or lines) per centimeter. To minimize attenuation of the primary (image forming) radiation and

Cb1r Antagonists

Bicyclic such as 5 were prepared as part of a program to explore different spatial orientations of the key pharmacophoric groups in rimonabant 20 . The N6 1-piperidinyl derivative 5 and rimonabant were equipotent in the binding assay despite poor overlap of the N6 group in the former compound with the 1-piperidinyl group in the proposed low energy conformer of the latter compound 21 . Optimization of the SAR in 5 led to the discovery of the N6 trifluoroethyl analog 6 (hCB1R K 0.3 nM). Pharmacokinetic analysis of 6 revealed bioavailability of 62 in the rat and a brain-to-plasma (B P) ratio of 7.2 at the 1.5 h time-point. Compound 6 decreased food intake in a dose-dependent manner following oral administration in a fasting-induced

Ray Unit

While a variety of x-ray units have been used in mammography since its inception (Bassett et al., 1992 Gold, 1992 Vyborny and Schmidt, 1989), it is now widely recognized that quality mammog-raphy requires a dedicated mammographic x-ray unit (ACR, 1993 DHHS, 1987 Haus, 1990 Yaffe, 1991). In order to meet the stringent imaging needs of mammography such a unit must be equipped with a variety of essential features discussed in this Section. These include a small focal spot coupled with a relatively long source-to-image-receptor distance (SID) to minimize blur a low energy x-ray beam and a specialized mammographic grid to provide high subject contrast and specialized equipment for firm, uniform compression. Without these features, it is almost impossible to visualize small nonpalpable masses and very small microcalcifications, often the only indications of early carcinoma. Use of non-dedicated radiographic equipment can result in missing many cancers and can lead to unwarranted biopsies,...
