Bone samples from iliac crest were obtained from apparently healthy female (n=4) and male (n=8) subjects with ages between 15-50. Cortical and trabecular parts were separated and soft tissues like fat, muscle and blood were removed. Calcium, Mg, Na, Cl, Fe, Zn, Br, Sr, and Cs were determined by instrumental neutron activation analysis and other techniques, and their relations were discussed. Fairly good agreement was obtained with literature data. These values may serve as reference values for subjects from a Turkish population.


Source apportionment of trace elements in Ankara
Çelik, İlke; Sanin, Faika Dilek; Department of Environmental Engineering (2014)
In this study, chemical composition of aerosol samples in Ankara is identified through receptor modeling. Within the scope of the study, 24-hr aerosol samples are collected by ‘Stack Filter Unit’ with using Nuclepore filter for 9 months at Middle East Technical University campus as a suburban sampling location. Collected filters are analyzed for fifty-seven major and minor trace elements, between z=3 Li and z = 92 (U) and black carbon. Measured concentrations of fine and coarse fractions are compared with c...
Archaeometric studies on selected samples of human bones excavated from the ruins of the roman amphitheatre in İznik
Aksoy, Uğur Bülent; Sayıt, Kaan; Özdemir, Kameray; Department of Archaeometry (2020-8)
In this study, major, minor, and trace elements were analysed in 21 bones belonging to 19 individuals with different sex, age, and location excavated from the Roman Theatre in İznik. Additionally, five soil samples taken from different parts of the site were analysed with applied chemical and physical analysis using archaeometric methods to determine and investigate the implication of toxic elements (Pb, As, Cd, etc.), and their accumulation in bone hydroxyapatite due to diagenic and/or biogenic basis...
Microcompounding of organoclay-ABS/PA6 blend-based nanocomposites
Ozkoc, Guralp; Bayram, Göknur; Tiesnitsch, Johan (Wiley, 2008-04-01)
In this study, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) and polyamide-6 (PA6) were blended in the presence of an olefin-based compatibilizer and organoclays. The effects of ABS to PA6 ratio, clay content, and screw speed of the microcompounder were examined by performing morphological (i.e., XRD, SEM, and TEM) and tensile tests. The average aspect ratio of the clay platelets after processing was obtained by applying semiautomatic image analysis method. SEM analysis showed that addition of the compatibilizers t...
In vitro Comparison of Autoclave Polymerization on the Transverse Strength of Denture Base Resins
Durkan, Rukiye; ÖZEL, MEHMET BİROL; Bagis, Bora; Usanmaz, Ali (Japanese Society for Dental Materials and Devices, 2008-07-01)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of autoclave polymerization on the transverse strength of denture base polymers. To this end, 30 rectangular test specimens were fabricated of two heat-polymerized denture base polymers. The test groups were: (I) control. i.e.. conventional water bath to polymerize result by heat at 100 degrees C for 30 minutes; (II) autoclave polymerization at 60 degrees C for 30 minutes followed by 130 degrees C for 10 minutes; and (III) autoclave polymerization at 60 degr...
Proteomic analysis of two cephamycin c overproducer and an industrial clavulanic acid overproducer strains of streptomyces clavuligerus in comparison with the standard strain NRRL 3585
Ünsaldı, Eser; Özcengiz, Gülay; Department of Biology (2016)
In this study, two cephamycin C (CC) overproducers, Streptomyces clavuligerus AK39 and TB3585 strains, and a clavulanic acid (CA) overproducer S. clavuligerus DEPA were subjected to proteomic analysis to elucidate their differential protein expression profiles when compared to that of the standard strain S. clavuligerus NRRL 3585. Two proteomics approaches were employed: 2DE technique coupled with MALDI-TOF/MS and LC-MS/MS. By using two techniques, a total of 40 proteins were identified as upregulated while...
