2002 Learning Zone Express Phospholipids Phosphatecontaining 4 2002 Learning Zone Express Micelle: example of phospholipids Hydrophilic heads Hydrophobic tails Micelle: is water soluble because of the hydrophilic heads Micelles are widely used in industrial and biological fields for their ability to dissolve and move non polar substances through an aqueous medium, or to carry drugs which are, often, scarcely soluble in water. The carrying ability of micelles can be altered if parameters determining their size and shape are changed.

5 2002 Learning Zone Express Sterols (a subgroup of steroids) Plant sterols cholesterol 6 2002 Learning Zone Express Plant Sterols 7

Plant-based micronutrients naturally present in fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, cereals, legumes and vegetable oils Due to the similar structure of plant sterols compete with cholesterol for absorption in the small intestine As a result, plant sterols can help reduce the absorption of cholesterol in the small intestine; reducing LDL blood cholesterol 2002 Learning Zone Express Cholesterol - A fat-like substance that is part of every cell of the body.

    Rice-Style Theorems in Complexity Theory Lane A. Hemaspaandra

    Hemaspaandra and Rothe raised the lower bound from hardness for unambiguous nondeterminism to hardness for constant-ambiguity nondeterminism (UPO(1)-hard). Undecidable Rice's Theorem also provides a link between the syntactic objects (programs, Turing machines, boolean circuits) and the semantic objects (functions, languages).
