    Spontaneous synchronization of two bistable pyridine-furan nanosprings connected by an oligomeric bridge

    The intensive development of nanodevices acting as two-state systems has motivated the search for nanoscale molecular structures whose long-term conformational dynamics are similar to the dynamics of bistable mechanical systems such as Euler arches and Duffing oscillators. Collective synchrony in bistable dynamics of molecular-sized systems has attracted immense attention as a potential pathway to amplify the output signals of molecular nanodevices. Recently, pyridin-furan oligomers of helical shape that are a few nanometers in size and exhibit bistable dynamics similar to a Duffing oscillator have been identified through molecular dynamics simulations. In this article, we present the case of dynamical synchronization of these bistable systems. We show that two pyridine-furan springs connected by a rigid oligomeric bridge spontaneously synchronize vibrations and stochastic resonance enhances the synchronization effect

    Spontaneous Vibrations and Stochastic Resonance of Short Oligomeric Springs

    There is growing interest in molecular structures that exhibit dynamics similar to bistable mechanical systems. These structures have the potential to be used as nanodevices with two distinct states. Particularly intriguing are structures that display spontaneous vibrations and stochastic resonance. Previously, through molecular dynamics simulations, it was discovered that short pyridine-furan springs, when subjected to force loading, exhibit the bistable dynamics of a Duffing oscillator. In this study, we extend these simulations to include short pyridine-pyrrole and pyridine-furan springs in a hydrophobic solvent. Our findings demonstrate that these systems also display the bistable dynamics of a Duffing oscillator, accompanied by spontaneous vibrations and stochastic resonance activated by thermal noise.Comment: arXiv admin note: substantial text overlap with arXiv:2110.0409

    The Role of Cytokines in Cholesterol Accumulation in Cells and Atherosclerosis Progression

    Atherosclerosis is the most common cardiovascular disease and is the number one cause of death worldwide. Today, atherosclerosis is a multifactorial chronic inflammatory disease with an autoimmune component, accompanied by the accumulation of cholesterol in the vessel wall and the formation of atherosclerotic plaques, endothelial dysfunction, and chronic inflammation. In the process of accumulation of atherogenic lipids, cells of the immune system, such as monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, etc., play an important role, producing and/or activating the production of various cytokines—interferons, interleukins, chemokines. In this review, we have tried to summarize the most important cytokines involved in the processes of atherogenesis

    This paper describe development and financial performance of cooperative in District Pelalawan among 2007 - 2008. Studies on primary and secondary cooperative in 12 sub-districts. Method in this stady use performance measuring of productivity, efficiency, growth, liquidity, and solvability of cooperative. Productivity of cooperative in Pelalawan was highly but efficiency still low. Profit and income were highly, even liquidity of cooperative very high, and solvability was good
