Abstract

Complexes of type LnM(η2 - pentamethylenediazirine)MʹLm, LnM/MʹLm = (CO)5Cr/Mo(CO)5, (CO)5Cr/Fe(CO)4, (CO)5W/Fe(CO)4 and (CO)5Cr/Mn(CO)2 5η(-MeC5H4) were prepared from [MʹLm(THF)] or Fe2(CO)9 and (η1 -pentamethylenediazirine)MLn. The structure of the Cr/Mo complex was determined by X-ray analysis. The IR and UV-VIS data resemble those of the corresponding homodi-metal complexes.

Abstract

Based on the local road traffic conditions in Beijing, China, this contribution proposes a rapid modeling method for road traffic noise sources. Since establishing the standardized experiment fields are expensive, real roads are used to determine the road traffic noise emission model in the method. Due to the similarity in the urban structures in China and Japan, this paper uses the ASJ- 2013 model as a template and replaces its model parameters with the ones output by an optimization program which minimizes the sum of absolute errors between the predicted and the measured LAeq. Real road experiments are conducted to verify the effectiveness and feasibility of the modeling method. The mean error of the model deduced by the method and the ASJ-2013 model is respectively 0.4 dB and 2.6 dB, and the mean absolute error of the two models is respectively 1.1 dB and 2.6 dB. The results of the real road experiments show that the road traffic noise sources deduced by the method are more accurate to conduct local noise prediction than those of other models.

Abstract

Among five ribosome-inactivating proteins tested only saporin-S6 could efficiently release the adenine from adenosine 20 of the synthetic oligoribonucleotide (SRD RNA) mimic of the sarcin/ricin domain of rat 28S rRNA with a K m of 9μM and a k cat of approximately 0.4 min−1 at pH 7.6. The optimal pH for the depurination activity of saporin-S6 is 5.0. However, saporin-S6 lost its site-specificity of depurination on SRD RNA around the optimal pH. The non-specific depurination activity of saporin-S6 was dependent on the enzyme concentration and pH conditions. These results are valuable to understand the diversity and the depurination mechanism of ribosome-inactivating proteins.
