Advantage of cooling the Photovoltaic System generating more power under high Global radiationSchwimmfähige Photovoltaikanlage / Floatable Photovoltaic System to produce Electric Energy using floatable Aluminum- plates in thermal contact with Photovoltaic Elements. Weather dependend heating of the Photovoltaic Elements will reduce their efficiency in producing Electric Energy. Cooling the Photovoltaic System (PV) down to receive Electric Power more effiently when exposed under high Global radiation. High Global Radiation (W/m²) could heat up PV e.g. to 60° C and result in a so called "Voltage drop". The Photovoltaic System combined in thermal contact with cooling elements could be used on air. Further Research on this matter is planned.
uacoopera posted this:Fluorescent compounds, methods of manufacturing and uses thereofA group of researchers from a Portuguese university developed a family of new fluorophores to be used in biological imaging, either in cells or in entire organisms, in fluorescence microscopy techniques, including live cell imaging. The fluorophores are not toxic to cells and organisms, and light up cells by binding to organelles such as the Golgi apparatus, nucleus, and particularly lipid droplets. Importantly, the fluorophores change color with the polarity of the environment. The university is looking for companies that would be interested in developing this technology further through partnership, or in commercializing the probes through licensing or acquisition of the patent.

Fundació URV posted this:Gallic Acid for the treatment of pathologies produced by hyperactivation of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone systemGallic Acid is a naturally occurring phenolic compound that is widely distributed throughout the plant kingdom. Different studies have demonstrated the strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagenic and anticancer properties of GA, and daily intake may reduce the risk of diseases and bring health benefits. More recently, Gallic Acid has also been studied for its beneficial effects on cardiovascular diseases. It inhibits dyslipidemia, hepatosteatosis and oxidative stress in high-fat diet fed rats, protects the myocardium against isoproterenol-induced oxidative stress in rats, ameliorates the heart-function defects of myocardial dysfunction associated with streptozotocin-induced type-1 diabetic rats and exhibits anti-hyperglycemic and lipid-lowering properties in high-fat diet mice. Gallic Acid is commonly used as antioxidant by the food industry. However, until now, it is not known that the gallic acid could block the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS), which is the innovative aspect discover for the Nutrigenomic Group for the Gallic Acid. The inhibition of the RAAS by Gallic Acid is considered to be of special relevance because RAAS overactivity is currently associated with not only hypertension but also vascular inflammation, the development of atherosclerosis, left ventricular hypertrophy, nephrosclerosis and cardiovascular events. This discovery has a big importance because it opens a wide field of use for this compound in the food, nutraceutical or pharmaceutical industry.

IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Geomatics laboratory for water resources managementIMDEA Water works on the methodological development and application of different spatial tools to support water resources management, including environmental mapping, remote sensing, the design and implementation of spatial databases and geoportals, applications for provisioning networks, and hydrological and hydrogeological modelling. New spatial information sources (LIDAR, GPS, digital terrain models, high-resolution imaging or drones) enable us to create new, high-resolution thematic mappings. Remote sensing techniques help derive biophysical vegetation variables (vegetation indices, water stress, agricultural output, crop evapotranspiration, etc.), geological mapping, soil usage, etc. Spatial databases record and order this information, forming a Hydrological Information System able to analyse the topological and quantitative relationships of different variables, the development of advanced 3D mapping and its implementation in web geoportals. Hydrogeological modelling by means of individual numerical models and/or coupled with hydrogeochemical models allows us to assess water resources in terms of their quantity and quality, and can be the basis for decision-making on the issue of water resources, both for surface water and groundwater bodies. Combining the extraction of data contained in old mappings and geo-positioning techniques with GPS allows the identification of hydraulic heritage elements for the development of decision-making support strategies.

RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:Harnessing inhibitory RNA based- nanoparticles for therapeutic intervention in blood cancersModulating T cells functions by down regulating specific genes using RNA interference (RNAi) holds tremendous potential in advancing targeted therapies in many immune related disorders including cancer, inflammation, autoimmunity and viral infections. Hematopoietic cells, in general, and primary T lymphocytes, in particular, are notoriously hard to transfect with small interfering RNAs (siRNAs). Herein, we describe a novel strategy to specifically deliver siRNAs to murine CD4+ T cells using targeted lipid nanoparticles (tLNPs). To increase the efficacy of siRNA delivery, these tLNPs have been formulated with several lipids designed to improve the stability and efficacy of siRNA delivery. The tLNPs were surface functionalized with anti-CD4 monoclonal antibody (mAb) to permit delivery of the siRNAs specifically to CD4+ T lymphocytes. Ex vivo, tLNPs demonstrated specificity by targeting only primary CD4+ T lymphocytes and no other cell types. Systemic intravenous administration of these particles led to efficient binding and uptake into CD4+ T lymphocytes in several anatomical sites including the spleen, inguinal lymph nodes, blood and the bone marrow. Silencing by tLNPs occur in a subset of circulating and resting CD4+ T lymphocytes. Interestingly, we show that tLNPs internalization and not endosome escape is a fundamental event that takes place as early as one hour after systemic administration that determine tLNPs efficacy. Taken together, these results suggest that tLNPs may open new avenues for the manipulation of T cell functionality and may help to establish RNAi as a therapeutic modality in leukocyte-associated diseases.
