  • Polyphenol-peptide interactions in mitigation of Alzheimer’s disease : role of biosurface-induced aggregation 

    Gaudreault, Roger; Hervé, Vincent; Van De Ven, Theo; Mousseau, Normand; Ramassamy, Charles (IOS Press, 2021-05-08)
    Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common age-related neurodegenerative disorder, responsible for nearly two-thirds of all dementia cases. In this review, we report the potential AD treatment strategies focusing on natural polyphenol molecules ...
  • Corilagin and 1,3,6-Tri-O-galloyl-β -D-glucose : potential inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2 variants 

    Binette, Vincent; Côté, Sébastien; Haddad, Mohamed; Nguyen, Phuong Trang; Bélanger, Sébastien; Bourgault, Steve; Ramassamy, Charles; Gaudreault, Roger; Mousseau, Normand (2021-06-28)
    The COVID-19 disease caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2, first detected in December 2019, is still emerging through virus mutations. Although almost under control in some countries due to effective vaccines that are mitigating the worldwide pandemic, the ...
  • Pressure effect on diffusion of carbon at the 85.91◦ 100 symmetric tilt grain boundary of α-iron 

    Rahman, Md Mijanur; El-Mellouhi, Fedwa; Bouhali, Othmane; Becquart, Charlotte; Mousseau, Normand (American Physical Society, 2021-04-19)
    The diffusion mechanism of carbon in iron plays a vital role in carburization processes, steel fabrication, and metal dusting corrosion. In this paper, using the kinetic activation-relaxation technique (k-ART), an off-lattice kinetic Monte Carlo algorithm ...
  • Diffusion mechanism of bound Schottky defect in magnesium oxide 

    Mahmoud, Sami; Carrez, Philippe; Landeiro Dos Reis, Marie; Mousseau, Normand; Cordier, Patrick (American Physical Society, 2021-03-25)
    In simple ionic crystals, intrinsic point defects must satisfy electrical neutrality and exist as Schottky defects. In magnesium oxide (MgO), a Schottky defect is then a combination of anionic and cationic vacancies. Since vacancies are charged, the ...
  • Molecular interactions of tannic acid with proteins associated with SARS-CoV-2 infectivity 

    Haddad, Mohamed; Gaudreault, Roger; Sasseville, Gabriel; Nguyen, Phuong Trang; Wiebe, Hannah; Van De Ven, Theo; Bourgault, Steve; Mousseau, Normand; Ramassamy, Charles (MDPI, 2022-02-27)
    The overall impact of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) on our society is unprecedented. The identification of small natural ligands that could prevent the entry and/or replication of the coronavirus remains a pertinent ...
  • Insights on the effect of water content in carburizing gas mixtures on the metal dusting corrosion of iron 

    Bentria, El Tayeb; Salawu, Omotayo Akande; Ramesh, Abitha; Laycock, Nicholas; Hamer, Wouter; Mousseau, Normand; Becquart, Charlotte; Bouhali, Othmane; El-Mellouhi, Fedwa (Elsevier, 2021-12-07)
    Constituents of syngas, such as water, carbon monoxide and sulfides, can cause the degradation of the steel pipes they move through, leading to carbon dusting and corrosion. In spite of considerable attention to this process, many questions remain ...
  • Zirconia-titania-doped tantala optical coatings for low mechanical loss Bragg mirrors 

    Lalande, Émile; Lussier, Alexandre W.; Lévesque, Carl; Ward, Marianne; Baloukas, Bill; Martinu, Ludvik; Gabriele, Vajente; Billingsley, Garilynn; Ananyeva, Alena; Bassiri, Riccardo; Fejer, Martin M.; Schiettekatte, François (American Vacuum Society, 2021-06-10)
    The noise caused by internal mechanical dissipation in the high refractive index amorphous thin films in dielectric mirrors is an important limitation for gravitational wave detection. The objective of this study is to decrease this noise spectral ...
  • Comparison of three radio-frequency discharge modes on the treatment of breast cancer cells in vitro 

    Boisvert, Jean-Sébastien; Lafontaine, Julie; Glory, Audrey; Wong, Philip; Coulombe, Sylvain (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2019)
    Non-thermal plasmas (NTPs) are known for their ability to induce thermal-free cytotoxic effects on cancer cells. However, as the variety of NTP devices increases, comparison of their cytotoxic effect becomes increasingly essential. In this work, we ...
  • Mitigating Alzheimer’s disease with natural polyphenols: a review 

    Gaudreault, Roger; Mousseau, Normand (Bentham Science, 2019-03-14)
    According to Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), nearly 50 million people worldwide were living with dementia in 2017, and this number is expected to triple by 2050. Despite years of research in this field, the root cause and mechanisms responsible ...
  • A coupled 2 x 2D Babcock-Leighton solar dynamo model. II Reference dynamo solutions 

    St-Laurent-Lemerle, Alexandre; Charbonneau, Paul (American Astronomical Society, 2017-01)
    In this paper we complete the presentation of a new hybrid 2 × 2D flux transport dynamo (FTD) model of the solar cycle based on the Babcock–Leighton mechanism of poloidal magnetic field regeneration via the surface decay of bipolar magnetic regions ...
