To investigate the biological effects of terbium (Tb), male mice were intraperitoneally administered with TbCl3 at doses of 10, 50, or 250 mg Tb/kg. The Tb distribution in organs was determined after 18-20 h of injection by using a spectrofluorometer....

Alterations in the extracellular Ca(2+) or K(+) concentration had significant influences on the motility of B16F10 melanoma cells measured in the absence of exogenous integrins using a conventional Boyden chamber assay. At normal K(+) concentrations, motility increased slightly when the...

An experimental investigation is described of a terbium luminescence sensor for continuous collection and detection of bacterial endospores suspended in the atmosphere. A sensor is presented that continuously monitors and rapidly detects small concentrations of aerosolized bacterial endospores. The aerosol...

Pt-containing nanoscale coordination polymer (NCP) particles with the formula of Tb2(DSCP)3(H2O)12 (where DSCP represents disuccinatocisplatin), NCP-1, were precipitated from an aqueous solution of Tb3+ ions and DSCP bridging ligands via the addition of a poor solvent. SEM and TEM images...

Terbium (Tb) is a rare earth metal that finds use in several emerging technologies. However, little is known about the biological effects of Tb. Thus, in this study the pulmonary toxicity of systemic Tb in mice was investigated. Mice were...
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.
