Inhibition by Tetrahydroquinoline Sulfonamide Derivatives of the Activity of Human 8-Oxoguanine DNA Glycosylase (OGG1) for Several Products of Oxidatively-induced DNA Base Lesions

December 17, 2021
Miral M. Dizdar, Melis Kant, Pawel Jaruga, Erdem Coskun, Yu-Ki Tahara, R. S. Lloyd, Eric T. Kool
DNA glycosylases involved in the first step of the base excision repair pathway of DNA repair are promising targets in cancer therapy. There is evidence that reduction of their activities may enhance cell killing in malignant tumors. Recently, two

Estimating Regions of Wireless Coexistence with Gaussian Process Surrogate Models

October 22, 2021
Jake Rezac, Noel C. Hess, Jason Coder
Simultaneous coexistence of multiple wireless communications systems sharing the same spectrum is critical for the success of modern and future communications. We develop a technique for estimating regions of wireless coexistence (RWC) – the transmission

ICSSC Biennial Progress Report for 2018: Report on Progress Towards Implementation of Executive Order 13717: Establishing a Federal Earthquake Risk Management Standard - Reporting Period: February 2, 2016 to February 1, 2018

October 21, 2021
John Harris, Katherine Johnson, Steven McCabe
On February 2, 2016, President Obama signed Executive Order (EO) 13717: Establishing a Federal Earthquake Risk Management Standard. The EO establishes a minimum level of seismic safety compliance for new and existing buildings that will be constructed

Certification of Standard Reference Material(R) 2386 Avocado Powder

October 20, 2021
Melissa M. Phillips, Laura J. Wood, George Caceres, Grace Hahm, Karen E. Murphy, Rick L. Paul, Benjamin Place, James H. Yen
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently released SRM 2386 Avocado Powder which has value assignment for over 70 analytes. This material has certified values assigned for 22 analytes and non-certified values assigned for 53

Inert Gas Flow Speed Measurements in Laser Powder Bed Fusion Additive Manufacturing

October 19, 2021
Jordan Weaver, Alec Schlenoff, David Deisenroth, Shawn P. Moylan
Laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) is an additive manufacturing technology that uses a laser to selectively melt powder feedstock to build parts in a layer-by-layer process. For metals-based LBPF additive manufacturing, the interaction of the laser and powder

Modeling Public Safety Communication Scenarios: School Shooting Incident

October 15, 2021
Richard A. Rouil, Antonio Izquierdo Manzanares, Chunmei Liu, Wesley Garey
Public safety practitioners performing day-to-day activities and responding to incidents communicate in ways that are very different from the general public. In order to determine if a particular technology or network deployment can meet the performance

Low-GWP Alternative Refrigerant Blends for HFC-134a: Interim Report

October 13, 2021
Piotr A. Domanski, Mark O. McLinden, Valeri I. Babushok, Ian Bell, Tara Fortin, Michael Hegetschweiler, Mark A. Kedzierski, Dennis Kim, Lingnan Lin, Gregory T. Linteris, Stephanie L. Outcalt, Richard A. Perkins, Aaron Rowane, Harrison Skye
This project addresses the objectives of the Statement of Need number WPSON-17-20 "No/Low Global Warming Potential Alternatives to Ozone Depleting Refrigerants." Its goal is to identify and demonstrate performance of low global-warming-potential (GWP), non

STEP File Analyzer and Viewer User Guide (Update 7)

October 13, 2021
Robert R. Lipman
The STEP File Analyzer and Viewer opens a STEP (ISO 10303 - STandard for Exchange of Product model data) Part 21 file and (1) generates a spreadsheet or CSV files of all entity and attribute information, (2) creates a visualization (view) of part geometry

Thermal Analysis of Nanoparticles: Methods, Kinetics, and Recent Advances

October 13, 2021
Elisabeth Mansfield, Mark Banash
This chapter provides an overview of the thermal techniques available to study nanoparticles, with particular attention to thermogravimetric analysis, calorimetry and differential scanning calorimetry. The advantages of thermal analysis for nanoparticle

A Combinatorial Approach to TCO Synthesis and Characterization

October 12, 2021
J D. Perkins, Dennis W. Readey, J. L. Alleman, J A. del Cueto, King C. Li, T J. Coutts, R Stauber, C. H. Duncan, David P. Young, P A. Parilla, B Keyes, L M. Geduilas, Davor Balzar, Q Wang, D Ginley
We have developed the deposition, characterization and analysis tools necessary for a combinatorial approach to thin flim metal oxides, with a special focus on transparent conducting oxides (TCOs). We are presently depositing compositionally graded

A Comparative AFM Study of the Compressibility and Friction of Unmodified and Oligo(ethylene oxide)-Modified Alkane Thiol SAMs on Au(111) Using Nanografting

October 12, 2021
Ying Hu, David J. Vanderah, Guangyao Liu, William J. Price, Milan Mrksich, G Scoles
Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) terminated with oligo(ethylene glycol) (OEG) segments are known to resist non-specific protein adsorption and are used in biomaterial and biosensor applications. In this report we use an atomic force microscopy (AFM)

A Continuum-Atomistic Simulation of Heat Transfer in Micro- and Nano-Flows

October 12, 2021
J Liu, S Chen, Xiaobo Nie, M O. Robbins
We develop a hybrid atomistic-continuum scheme for simulating micro- and nano- flows with heat transfer. The approach is based on spatial ''domain decomposition'' in which molecular dynamics (MD) is used in regions where atomistic details are important
