Patient discussion about carbonate

Q. hi my name is ray i am from england and i am on oxygen i am a retainer of carbon monxide do you guys know whoa any place working with stem cell or natural medical emial rsantolla@aol.co.uk

A. i had a whole course on stem cell use in tissue engineering and from what i know this is an area that still in research and very little clinical use. the ability to create lungs from Mesenchimal Stem Cells is a far away dream right now. but here are some links to labs that research that area:

In addition, there was a significant amount of elemental iron in the aged lubricant at high temperature (225[degrees]C/437[degrees]F), but there was no carbonate ion detected.
Polar and sub-polar marine ecosystems are projected to become so low in carbonate ions within this century that waters may become corrosive to unprotected shells and skeletons of organisms in these waters.
In addition to these in vitro metabolic effects, human-CGRP was shown to significantly increase the activity of carbonic anhydrase, which is known to catalyze carbonate ion formation.
Concentrations of iron and carbonate ions were decreased or increased according to location of film deposition or dissolution.
First, acid may be added to effectively reverse the formation of carbonate ion due to the thermal breakdown of bicarbonate and then remove bicarbonate by converting it to carbonic acid which in turn breaks down to carbon dioxide gas and water.
For the past several thousand years, the concentration of carbonate ions in seawater has remained relatively stable.
By examining fossilized shells, he and his coworker David Archer of the University of Chicago inferred the ocean concentration of carbonate ion and, from that, the acidity of the ocean.
These reactions increase the concentration of bicarbonate ions [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] and decrease the concentration of carbonate ions [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII].
2] to build their biomass; the other is when marine organisms like corals, molluscs and some phytoplankton build and maintain shells and exoskeletons using carbonate ions dissolved in the water.
The acid binds with carbonate ions in seawater--the building blocks that reef-building corals need to create their calcium carbonate skeletons.
As CO2from the atmosphere is churned into the world's waters, it reduces the availability of carbonate ions needed by many marine animals and plants to build their shells and skeletons.
