Disease relevance of Tetradecane


Psychiatry related information on Tetradecane

  • When added to the tetradecane medium, propane considerably shortened the latency period and the generation time, resulting in increased bacterial yield [4].

High impact information on Tetradecane

  • Using the tetradecane/ornithine detergent, a solution of 5.5 Kpb plasmid DNA molecules was converted into a homogeneous population of 35 nm particles [5].
  • The behavior of dioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine (DOPE)/cholesterol/tetradecane and dioleoylphosphatidylcholine (DOPC)/cholesterol/tetradecane were examined using x-ray diffraction and the osmotic stress method [6].
  • By stereometry, the sebaceous gland volumes gradually increased during the course of treatments with TS and DMSO, whereas the volumes of TD-treated sebaceous glands increased, reached the maximum on day 7, and then decreased [7].
  • The correlation between surface microscopy and dermal histology in tetradecane-induced comedones in rabbit ear skin [8].
  • Three concentrations of tetradecane and liquid paraffin were applied daily for 4 weeks to the external ear skin of rabbits, and the average diameter of the follicular lesions was measured under the Leitz MZ surface microscope [8].

Associations of Tetradecane with other chemical compounds

  • The total sulfur level of dibenzothiophene in tetradecane, was reduced by 99%, from 200 to 2ppm within 24h at 40 degrees C. After 72h treatment, 59% of the total sulfur content in Liaoning crude oil was removed, from 3600 to 1478ppm [2].
  • The most likely mechanism of mass transfer through the aqueous membrane is a solution-diffusion of tetradecane enhanced by the micelles of the surfactant Tween 20 [9].
  • Dodecane and tetradecane did not show any increase in the expression of IL-1alpha and MCP-1 as compared to control (P > 0.05), but the expression of TNF-alpha by dodecane and tetradecane was significantly higher than control at all time points [14].
  • The temperature dependence of the micelle structures formed by poly(styrene-b-isoprene) (SI) diblock copolymers in the selective solvents diethyl phthalate (DEP) and tetradecane (C14), which are selective for the PS and PI blocks, respectively, have been investigated by small angle neutron scattering (SANS) [15].
  • In this paper, two ternary systems (water, Triton X-100, and octane or tetradecane) were investigated using freeze-fracture transmission electron microscopy, rheology, laser diffraction particle sizing, and pulse field gradient NMR (PFG-NMR) [16].
