The HEPES molecule mainly grow tips from seeds with a random order; and the hydroxylamine can act as a directing shape agent, but this role only follows after its reduction role has been finished in the reaction.
The increase of the molar concentration of HEPES promotes strong anisotropic formation of the MB-AuNPs.

Although [delta]PAP in the HEPES 2 group tended to be higher during the acute and sustained phases of HPV, it was only significant during min 2-4 compared with the control HOX group.
In the HEPES 2 group, we used dextran instead of plasma to rule out the effect of extracellular HC[O.sub.3.sup.-] on HPV.
Substitution of HC[O.sub.3.sup.-] with HEPES in the HEPES 1 group abolished PAP during the acute and sustained phases of HPV.

1 with the results in Table 2 shows that the adsorption of [T.sub.4] to the dialysis membranes was significantly less (P <0.001) in serum pools compared with HEPES buffer.
1, the fraction of [T.sub.4] adsorbed to the ultrafiltration devices/dialysis tubing was constant at [T.sub.4] concentrations of 13-100 000 pmol/L in HEPES buffer.
[T.sub.4] in serum adsorbed significantly less than [T.sub.4] in HEPES buffer (P <0.001).
To study the role of GSH in modulating MCE-induced cytotoxicity, we pretreated cells with NAC 10 mM or BSO 2.5 mM for 6 hr, then washed them with Hepes buffer once.
Primary hepatocytes on cover slides (12 x 12 mm) in 35-mm Petri dishes were preincubated for 2 hr in 5 mL Williams' medium E supplemented with 10% FBS, then washed with Hepes buffer once.
