Studien zur endogenen Expression von RNA G-Quadruplexen und deren Interaktion mit zellulären Proteinen

Serikawa, Tatsuo (2017)

Due to specific orientation of guanine molecules certain guanine-rich sequences can form inter- or intramolecular structures, known as Guanine (G)-quadruplexes (G4s or GQs). Over the last 10 years, it has been shown several times that RNA G-quadruplexes located in the 5´ UTR of the mRNA suppress translation, however, a recent study indicated that in eukaryotic cells RNA G-quadruplexes are globa...

Potentials and Barriers for Tantalum Recovery from Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment

Ueberschaar, Maximilian ; Jalalpoor, Daniel Dariusch ; Korf, Nathalie ; Rotter, Vera Susanne (2017)

Circular economy approaches aim to close material cycles along the value chain. As such, the circular economy can be a long-term strategy to mitigate the risks of critical raw material (CRM) supply. Tantalum, with a current end-of-life recycling rate of less than 1%, has been intermittently discussed as critical. Even though the specificity of tantalum applications and high-mass fractions of ta...

Enabling the recycling of rare earth elements through product design and trend analyses of hard disk drives

Ueberschaar, Maximilian ; Rotter, Vera Susanne (2015)

Hard disk drives consist of a complex mix of various materials. While Aluminum, Copper and Steel are easy to separate, actual recycling processes dilute containing rare earth elements to non-recoverable grades in other material streams. To enable future recycling of these materials an in-depth analysis of hard disk drives from Desktop PCs and Notebooks was carried out. Furthermore, possible rec...

Ueberschaar, Maximilian ; Otto, Sarah Julie ; Rotter, Vera Susanne (2017)

Gallium and gallium compounds are more frequently used in future oriented technologies such as photovoltaics, light diodes and semiconductor technology. In the long term the supply risk is estimated to be critical. Germany is one of the major primary gallium producer, recycler of gallium from new scrap and GaAs wafer producer. Therefore, new concepts for a resource saving handling of gallium an...

Assessment of element-specific recycling efficiency in WEEE pre-processing

Ueberschaar, Maximilian ; Geiping, Julia ; Zamzow, Malte ; Flamme, Sabine ; Rotter, Vera Susanne (2017)

Pre-processing is a crucial step to ensure the efficiency of subsequent processes and the quality of recyclates. The efficiency of pre-processing can be affected by high losses to undesignated output fractions. Standard batch tests usually provide mass balances and are a good proxy for bulk materials balances (iron/steel, aluminum, plastics). This article aims at harmonizing methodologies and ...

Toward microbioreactor arrays

Glauche, Florian ; John, Gernot T. ; Arain, Sarina ; Knepper, Andreas ; Neubauer, Antje ; Goelling, Detlef ; Lang, Christine ; Violet, Norman ; King, Rudibert ; Neubauer, Peter (2015)

In this study, a slow-responding chemo-optical sensor for dissolved oxygen (DO) integrated into a 96-well plate was developed. The slow response time ensures that the measured oxygen value does not change much during plate transport to the microplate reader. The sensor therefore permits at-line DO measurement of microbial cultures. Moreover, it eliminates the necessity of individual optical mea...

Gamradt, Stefanie (2017)

Trotz intensiver Forschung ist unklar, ob Myelin-reaktive CD4+ T-Zellen in der Pathogenese der Multiplen Sklerose (MS) eine relevante Rolle spielen. Ein Grund dafür ist das Fehlen einer Methode für ihre direkte Analyse. In dieser Arbeit ist es mit Hilfe der magnetischen Anreicherung von spezifisch-aktivierten CD154+ konventionellen und CD137+ regulato-rischen T-Zellen in Kombination mit multipa...

CE_Method. A MATLAB function for calculating the part load behaviour of absorption chillers and heat pumps based on (C)haracteristic (E)quations

Albers, Jan (2017-09-26)

The algorithm CE_METHOD calculates the part load behaviour of single stage absorption chillers and heat pumps explicitly as function of inlet temperatures and flow rates. For the characterisation of the chiller or heat pump the heat transfer capabilities (i.e. the UA-values) of five heat exchangers (Desorber, Evaporator, Condenser, Absorber and Solution heat exchanger) have to be known.

Anaerobic transformation of brominated aromatic compounds by Dehalococcoides mccartyi strain CBDB1

Yang, Chao (2017)

Brominated flame retardants are widely used compounds for fire safety in our daily life. Many of them have been reported to be toxic to humans and identified as environmental contaminants. Dehalococcoides mccartyi strains are well known for their dependence on organohalide respiration as an energy conserving process and have therefore been intensively studied. So far, much less investigations w...
