Toxicology and applied pharmacology, 104(2), 301-311 (1990-06-15)
Metabolic behavior and pulmonary toxicity of yttrium chloride (YCl3) deposited in the lung was investigated. Yttrium chloride was instilled intratracheally into rats and the time-course and dose-related changes in distribution of Y between lung tissue and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF)...

Environmental toxicology and pharmacology, 34(2), 574-578 (2012-08-03)
Yttrium is used in the production of various electronic devices because the alloy it contains enhances or modifies the properties of other elements. In order to study the cytotoxic action of yttrium, the effect of yttrium chloride (YCl(3)) on the...

Proteins, 78(16), 3450-3457 (2010-09-28)
The effective interactions and phase behavior of protein solutions under strong electrostatic coupling conditions are difficult to understand due to the complex charge pattern and irregular geometry of protein surfaces. This distinguishes them from related systems such as DNA or...

Soluble inositol polyphosphates are found in many cells. The trisphosphate isomers, mainly inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate, have been extensively studied because of their involvement in signal transduction. However, higher phosphorylated inositols are less frequently studied and their physiological role is poorly understood. Among...

We investigated pulmonary clearance of yttrium (Y) and acute lung injury following intratracheal instillation (i.t.) of yttrium chloride (YCl3) in saline- or YCl3-pretreated rats (30 days before the second challenge). About 67% of the initial dose of Y remained in...
The rare earth elements impact nearly everyone in the world. All of the people living in advanced technological countries and almost all those living in third world countries utilize the rare earths in their everyday living—the car that one drives (gasoline is refined from oil using rare earth catalysts and catalytic converters reduce the polluting emissions from the automotive exhaust), watching the news on TV (the red and green colors in TV screens), the telephones and computers we use to communicate (the permanent magnets in speakers and disc drives), just to name a few examples.
