Aquaporin 4 (AQP4) is the major water channel expressed in the central nervous system (CNS), and it is primarily expressed in astrocytes. It has been studied in various brain pathological conditions. However, the potential for AQP4 to influence Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is still unclear. Research regarding AQP4 functions related to AD can be traced back several years and has gradually progressed toward a better understanding of the potential mechanisms. Currently, it has been suggested that AQP4 influences synaptic plasticity, and AQP4 deficiency may impair learning and memory, in part, through glutamate transporter-1 (GLT-1). AQP4 may mediate the clearance of amyloid beta peptides (Aβ). In addition, AQP4 may influence potassium (K+) and calcium (Ca2+) ion transport, which could play decisive roles in the pathogenesis of AD. Furthermore, AQP4 knockout is involved in neuroinflammation and interferes with AD. To date, no specific therapeutic agents have been developed to inhibit or enhance AQP4. However, experimental results strongly emphasize the importance of this topic for future investigations. © 2015, Springer Science+Business Media New York.

The crack tip strain rate (CTSR) and the dissolution/repassivation kinetics are the parameters controlling high pH SCC of pipeline steels because the repeated film rupture is the dominative mechanism. The CTSR is mainly produced by the crack tip advance and cyclic load. Theoretical expressions of the CTSR are given to account on these factors. After the anodic current density determined from a polarization curve measured with a potential scanning velocity 1V/min and the repassivation kinetic exponent obtained by the strained electrode method are utilized, the crack growth model proposed gives a reasonably good prediction to the crack velocity experimentally observed. A numeric simulation in a 0.5M carbonate+0.5M bicarbonate solution indicates that the effect of mass transfer within crack on the crack growth is negligible when the crack velocity is below 10 -9m/s. Various factors affecting the SCC are discussed. © 2010.

An experiment concerning the biological and chemical responses of soil to cover crop mulching was carried out in two adjacent experimental fields (2012 and 2013) under different climatic conditions in the Mediterranean environment (Central Italy). The Monthly Aridity Index was calculated in order to verify the relationship between soil properties and climatic factors under three different cover crop mulches: Vicia villosa Roth (HV), Phacelia tanacetifolia Benth. (LP), and Sinapis alba L. (WM). A conventional management was also included in the experimental fields as control (C). Soil samples were collected at 0-20cm depth after the transplanting and the harvesting of tomato (May and August, respectively), in order to assess the initial and residual effects of mulching on soil quality. In the two experimental years, the amount of precipitation from May to August was 110mm in 2012 and 172mm in 2013. The average values of AI were 18 and 49 in 2012 and 2013, respectively. LP mulching was sensitive to low precipitation levels in terms of aboveground decomposition rate (the variation of dry matter from May to August 2012 was -53% in LP, 64% in HV and 69% in WM) and a lower tomato yield compared to the control in 2012 (4.2kgm-2 in LP and 5.2kgm-2 in C). WM mulching was sensitive to low precipitation in terms of soil nutrient storage (from May to August 2012 the variation of soil C was 19% in WM., 6% in C, -5 % in LP and 10% in HV; the variation of soil N was 44% in WM, 2% in C, -2% in LP and 13% in HV). Soil microbial activity and functional diversity were strongly affected by the climatic conditions in all mulching treatments. In particular, precipitation influenced soil C availability, which enhanced microbial functional diversity. In short, the effects of lacy phacelia, white mustard and hairy vetch mulching on soil quality, microbial functions and tomato yield were influenced by summer precipitation and temperature in the Mediterranean environment. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

The species composition of 22 mires (brown-moss rich fens) was surveyed in north-eastern Poland, located in continental boreo-nemoral Europe. Detailed analyses of the water chemistry, biomass N, P, and K content, productivity and water level were made. Two floristically different types of richfen vegetation occur in this area, one with numerous Caricetalia davallianae (calcicole) species such as Scorpidium cossonii, Campylium stellatum, Carex lepidocarpa and Eriophorum latifolium (Cd fens) and the other with a few Caricetalia davallianae species and mainly Hamatocaulis vernicosus, Marchantia polymorpha, Plagiomnium ellipticum, Carex diandra and C. rostrata (non- Cd fens). In these two rich-fen types surface water chemistry and water levels were similar, but the Cd fens characteristically had higher pHs and lower PO4 3- concentrations. N and P availability revealed by the N:P ratio is the ecological factor that best accounts for the differences in species composition of the two rich-fen types: the non-Cd fens are N-limited while the Cd-fens are usually P-limited. Moreover, the Cd fens differ from the non-Cd fens in a higher productivity of the bryophyte layer. In the case of P andKconcentrations, there is a correlation between that in vascular plants and bryophytes, while N concentrations are not correlated.We believe that in the case of low productive ecosystems the use of the broad "nutrient availability gradient" should be replaced by a (from) N-(to) P-limitation gradient with N:P ratio as a useful measure. Natural N-limited, lowproductive rich fens and their ecological conditions can be a phenomenon typical of continentaleastern temperate European areas, which have been poorly surveyed and need further research.

Ring shake is a defect that strongly affects chestnut (Castanea sativa Mill.) use and its occurrence is known to be mainly related to mechanical stress within a tree; however, few investigations have compared the physico-mechanical properties of healthy and shaken trees. Hence, the aim of this study is to compare the density, compression strength, bending strength (MOR), and shrinkages between healthy and shaken trees in coppice stands. The investigation was carried out in the Lazio Region in central Italy in trees with a cambial age between 6 and 25 years. The results showed that shaken trees had lower mechanical strength and shrinkages than healthy ones and that the physico-mechanical parameters might be used to predict ring shake occurrence in a specific geographic area. Geographical location strongly affected the physico-mechanical properties of the chestnut wood, and this factor influenced ring shake occurrence. MOR value was assumed to be the parameter that could be applied at almost all study sites to distinguish between shaken and healthy trees. There was no difference between the shaken and healthy portions of a disk inside the same tree.

The multidomain integral equation method is used to calculate fluxes of radiation from various on- and off-axis point sources passing through two different homogeneous isotropic media and striking a surface of a circular disc perpendicular to the optical axes of these sources. This method is dedicated to radiation passing through attenuating or nonattenuating media with a Fresnel interface and is applicable for arbitrary radiation patterns of point sources. The paper presents, firstly, the generalized multidomain integral equation method, expressed by double iterated integrals, for calculating radiant fluxes from arbitrary emitting point sources. This generalized method is simplified then to the form of multidomain single integral equation method applicable for rotationally symmetrical radiation patterns with optical axes perpendicular to the disc. Next, the simplified method is used for computer simulation of radiant fluxes incident on the disc from small Lambertian and Gaussian sources represented by point source models. All numerical results obtained from this simulation have shown high accuracy and efficiency of the presented method. Selected results are illustrated graphically and validated by Optical Software for Layout and Optimization (OSLO) from Lambda Research Corporation. Potential applications of the presented method include optical sensing and metrology, optical coupling, immersion microscopes, light-extraction problems and creative lighting design. © 2014 Taylor & Francis.

Optical systems protected by plane-parallel entrance windows from external environmental conditions were studied to determine the radiant fluxes passing through their circular apertures from wide-angle on-axis and off-axis point sources. The study was performed for the case when the windows, the internal environments, and the external environments of these optical systems were considered as three different homogeneous isotropic and attenuating media. All considerations were made for ideal plane-parallel windows illuminated by an arbitrary radiation field applying the multiple-reflection theory. As a result of this study a multi-domain integral equation method based on a mathematical formula expressed by a series of multiple-reflected fluxes of radiation within the plane-parallel window was proposed. The applicability of the method was tested using computer simulations for an isotropic point source and a small area Lambertian source represented by a point-source model. The computed results were validated by the optical software for layout and optimization program from Lambda Research Corporation (USA). The selected results were illustrated graphically and analyzed. The numerical simulations have shown high accuracy and efficiency in the calculations for arbitrary emitting point sources. The potential applications of the presented method include optical sensing and metrology of noncollimated radiation from the various on-axis and off-axis point sources. © 2015 Optical Society of America.
