“Surveys were carried out in 2003-2006 to better understand the epidemiology of hantaviruses in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region of China (Inner Mongolia). Hemorrhagic
fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) was first reported in this region in 1955 and has been an important public health problem here since then. During 1955-2006, 8,309 persons with HFRS were reported Sotrastaurin purchase in Inner Mongolia (average incidence rate 0.89/100,000), and 261 (3.14%) died. Before the 1990s, all HFRS cases occurred in northeastern Inner Mongolia. Subsequently, HFRS
cases were registered in central (1995) and western (1999) Inner Mongolia. In this study, hantaviral antigens were identified in striped field mice (Apodemus agrarius) from northeastern Inner Mongolia and in Norway rats (Rattus AG-014699 in vitro norvegicus) from middle and western Inner Mongolia. Phylogenetic analysis of hantaviral genome sequences suggests that HFRS has been caused mainly by Hantaan virus in northeastern Inner Mongolia and by Seoul virus in central and western Inner Monaolia.”
“We present a method to treat scattering of electrons with atomic roughness at interfaces, surfaces, and edges on nanometer-scale structures based on local empirical see more pseudopotentials. This approach merges the computational advantages of macroscopic models based on the shift of a phenomenological “”barrier potential,”" with the physical accuracy of models based on modifications of the atomic configuration at the interface/surface/edge. We illustrate the method by considering the dependence of
the scattering matrix element on the confinement (inversion) field in free-standing H-terminated Si inversion layers, on the thickness in similarly H-terminated thin-Si bodies, on the diameter of free-standing  cylindrical Si nanowires, and on the width of armchair-edge graphene nanoribbons. For these latter structures, we find extremely large scattering rates, whose magnitude – ultimately due to the chirality dependence of the bandgap – renders perturbation theory invalid and prevents us from drawing quantitative conclusions about transport properties. Yet, they show clearly the dominant role played by line-edge roughness in controlling electronic transport in these structures, in agreement with suggestions that transport in narrow and rough ribbons does not occur via extended Bloch states.
