Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
A nanoscale particle.
- ‘We also clarify that the nanoparticle mimics the fusion protein, and promotes the fusion process of two vesicles.’
- ‘The team found that an iron oxide nanoparticle can outline not only brain tumors under MRI, but also other lesions in the brain that may otherwise have gone unnoticed.’
- ‘Similarly, today's scientists and engineers have found that it takes only small amounts of a nanoparticle, precisely placed, to change a material's physical properties.’
- ‘Imagine if a nanoparticle was scaled up to the size of a football.’
- ‘The adhering nanoparticle induces the morphological change of the vesicle: budding, formation of two vesicles in which only outer monolayers are connected, and fission.’
- ‘A nanoparticle can be embedded in the wall of an individual cell that can then be monitored.’
- ‘Folate molecules on the nanoparticle bind to receptors on tumor cell membranes and the cell immediately internalizes it, because it thinks it's getting the vitamin it needs.’
- ‘The blood vessels feeding the tumor then collapse, trapping the loaded nanoparticle in the tumor, where it slowly releases the chemotherapy.’
- ‘A nanoparticle is the basic building block of nanotechnology.’
- ‘Specifically, the group has succeeded in implanting a gold nanoparticle with a diameter of 1.2 nm into the enzyme glucose oxidase.’
- ‘The authors found that the protein undergoes a larger conformational change when assembled onto a nanoparticle having a larger diameter.’
- ‘A single nanoparticle inside of one cell would be equivalent to an ant inside an automobile.’
- ‘The laws of gravity, optics, and acceleration represent averages, not the quirky behavior of each single nanoparticle.’
- ‘A nanoparticle one billionth of a meter long may hold the key to a new concept of magnetic imaging in the brain.’
- ‘The nanoparticle bends the stalk, and induces the pore opening.’
- ‘We investigate the budding and fission of a vesicle induced by the adhesion of the nanoparticle.’
- ‘A good example of a harmful nanoparticle is titanium dioxide, which has been used in toxicology for a long time and established as an inert substance.’
- ‘We have also shown that the nanoparticle promotes the fusion process from the stalk intermediate to the fusion-pore opening.’
- ‘They also say that the nanoparticle is of a small uniform size and consistency, and has been proven to work in animals bearing such tumors.’
- ‘The technique is based on tracking the fluorescence or scattering signal of a nanoparticle bound to the molecule of interest.’
