Dissecting the mechanism of action of actinoporins. Role of the N-terminal amphipathic alpha-helix in membrane binding and pore activity of sticholysins I and II
(Plos One, 2018-08-30) [Artigo]
Actinoporins sticholysin I and sticholysin II (St I, St II) are proposed to lyse model and biomembranes via toroidal pore formation by their N-terminal domain. Based on the hypothesis that peptide fragments can reproduce ...
Characterization of heat waves affecting mortality rates of broilers between 29 days and market age
(Revista Brasileira de Ciência Avícola, 2010-12-01) [Artigo]
Climate may affect broiler production, especially where there are heat waves, which may cause high mortality rates due to the heat stress. Heat wave prediction and characterization may allow early mitigation actions to be ...
Magnetic nanocomposites (SR/IRON) type isotropic MRE directed to vibration absorption systems
(2017 Ieee 17th International Conference On Nanotechnology (ieee-nano), 2017-01-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
In recent decades, an increasing effort has been made not only to foster cost-effective, competitive and innovative industries but also to create smart materials. In this work, we present the morphological, magnetic and ...
Climate change in layer poultry farming: Impact of heat waves in region of Bastos, Brazil
(Revista Brasileira de Ciencia Avicola, 2018-10-01) [Artigo]
The region around the municipality of Bastos, state of São Paulo, accounted for about 7% of Brazilian egg production in 2015. In 2012, it experienced a heat wave that resulted in the death of approximately 500,000 hens, ...
Influence of the Gas Pressure of Plasma Nitriding on the Structural, Mechanical and Tribological Surface Properties of AISI 316L
(Materials Research-ibero-american Journal Of Materials, 2019-01-01) [Artigo]
In this paper, the influence of gas nitriding (80% H-2-20% N-2) pressure (between 3 and 7 Torr) on the modification of surface properties of AISI 316L stainless steel is examined. The structural, mechanical, tribological ...
Enzymatic antioxidants-Relevant or not to protect the photosynthetic system against cadmium-induced stress in Massai grass supplied with sulfur?
(Environmental And Experimental Botany, 2018-11-01) [Artigo]
Exposure to cadmium (Cd) can cause oxidative stress and injuries to the photosynthetic apparatus of plants. Otherwise, plant metabolism impaired by Cd toxicity can be aided by a proper sulfur (S) nutrition, since S is a ...
