There is an evidence that some of the essential trace elements are crucial determinants of bone health. Excess or deficiency of these elements has a role in the development of bone diseases, therefore research on trace elements in bone is very important. Iliac crest bone biopsies were optioned from twelve persons undergoing orthopedic surgery due to any reason than osteoporosis. Cortical and trabecular parts were separated, and blood and fats were removed. Up to 30 minor and trace elements were determined in these samples by instrumental neutron activation analysis and other techniques and their relations were discussed.

The standard method to diagnose and follow-up osteoporosis is the measurement of bone mineral density (BMD) using dual X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). Manufacturers' manuals of DEXA devices state the intrascanner coefficient of variance is less than 0.01 g/cm(2). The aim of this study was to evaluate the in vivo coefficient of variance of a Lunar DPX scanner in male and female healthy adult subjects. Average BMD for females and males were 1.170 +/- 0.091 g/cm(2) and 1.272 +/- 0.115 g/cm(2), respectively. Month...
Radiation induced chain addition of allylbenzene to 1,4-dioxane
Nesterov, SV; Kucukyavuz, S; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1999-06-01)
Radiation induced chain addition of allylbenzene to 1,4-dioxane has been studied by IR-, UV-, mass-, NMR- and ESR-spectrometry. Efficiency of the addition depends on the concentration of monomer and it has an optimum at C-monom<0.125M. Apparently, upper concentration limit of the reaction is caused by absorbed energy transfer on the molecule of monomer followed by energy deactivation. Radiation-chemical yields of the product are 12 and 31 molec./100 eV for 0.125M and 0.07M solution, respectively. The value ...
A critical review of the specifications and performance of antibody and DNA-based methods for detection and quantification of allergens in foods
Senyuva, Hamide Z.; Jones, Ivona Baricevic; Sykes, Mark; Baumgartner, Sabine (Informa UK Limited, 2019-01-01)
Despite the availability of a large number of antibody and DNA based methods for detection and quantification of allergens in food there remain significant difficulties in selecting the optimum technique to employ. Published methods from research groups mostly contain sufficient detail concerning target antigen, calibration procedures and method performance to allow replication by others. However, routine allergen testing by the food industry relies upon commercialised test kits and frequently the suppliers...
Fatty acid methyl ester analysis of bacterşal isolates from salt lake, Turkey and characterization of their extracellular enzymes
Bahçeci, Hümeyra; Gültekin, Güzin Candan; Department of Biotechnology (2004)
In this study, 11 bacterial isolates from Salt Lake,Turkey were identified by using fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) analysis. They were screened for production of industrially important enzymes xylanase, cellulase, a-amylase and protease. These enzymes were characterized in terms of enzyme activity, stability, optimum temperature and optimum pH. One of the isolates was identified as Bacillus pumilus, and two of them were identified as Bacillus subtilis. Other isolates were determined to be Bacillus lichenifo...

Studies of finer details in mass and charge distribution in fission leads to a better understanding of the fission process. Experimental determination of independent and cumulative yields using radiochemical techniques as well as mass spectrometers and fission product recoil separators form the basis of such studies. It has been established that closed shells as well as an even number of nucleons influence both mass and charge distributions. The magnitudes of these effects may be estimated from existing exp...
