Different disciplines have their traditions and conventions, and little thought is given in the standard literature to these divergent approaches and the problems of interconversion. In all fields, a "concentration" is considered to be the ratio of (i) chemical and (ii) the surrounding system.
However, interconversion among arsenic species, especially the conversion of arsenite into arsenate, was observed.
Based on this knowledge, strategies to prevent tumor remission should carefully consider not only eliminating potential aggressive CSCs and EMT cells within the tumor but also targeting those signaling pathways responsible for the interconversion capacity of non-CSCs to new CSCs and mesenchymal cells via EMT activation.
Although our used cluster model is small, other local configurations different from ours may be more favorable for the interconversion.
This procedure has been applied for two different polymeric structures, and the simulation results seem to be stimulating for further establishing a method of interconversion of viscoelastic functions.
In the nanoparticulate form, cerium adopts a fluorite crystalline structure with both [Ce.sup.3+] and [Ce.sup.4+] coexisting on its surface and hence, the interconversion of oxidation states generates greater number of oxygen vacancies on the surface of nanoceria which are actually sites of catalytic reactions [10,11].
