Sesame seeds
sesame butter
sesaminol
sesamolin

Sesaminol from sesame seed induces apoptosis in human lymphoid leukemia Molt 4B cells.
Miyahara Y, Hibasami H, Katsuzaki H, et al.

The exposure of human lymphoid leukemia Molt 4B cells to sesaminol, a component of sesame oil led to both growth inhibition and the induction of apoptosis. Morphological change showing apoptotic bodies was observed in the cells treated with sesaminol. The fragmentation of DNA by sesaminol to oligonucleosomal-sized fragments that are characteristics of apoptosis was observed to be concentration- and time-dependent. These findings suggest that growth inhibition of Molt 4B cells by sesaminol results from the induction of apoptosis in the cells.

Amastigotes

(Leishmania donovani)


...In order to develop a successful parasitic relationship with its host, the leishmania must evade both the innate and adaptive immune responses. When leishmania first enters the human body, it is in the promastigote form. Promastigotes are engulfed by macrophages but are resistant to proteolysis and degradation in the phagosome. Once inside the macrophage, the organism is termed an amastigote. By continuing to live inside the macrophage, leishmania effectively avoids the humoral branch of the immune system. During each of the steps described, the protozoa evade and at times manipulate the human immune system and avoid digestion.

Isotope: Any of two or more forms of an element having the same or very closely related chemical propertiesand the same atomic number but different atomic weights (or mass numbers)[U 235, U 238, and U 239 are three isotopes  of Uranium.] Different isotopes of an element have different numbers of neutrons in their atomic nuclei.

What happened to 'H'



Kinetic art is art that moves, or appears to move.

Kinetic energy, in scientific terms, is the energy possessed by a body by virtue of its motion, including the atomic level as in heat.

In kinetic art the motion may be physical, as in the kinetic sculpture of Naum Gabo and mobiles of Alexander Calder, or implied, as in the Op art paintings of Bridget Riley and others.

The kinetic art vogue peaked from the middle 1960s to the middle 1970s.
