The research was concerned with preparation and characterization of some esters (2-4) derived from atophan (2-phenyl cinchoninic acid). These esters were converted to the corresponding carboxamide by their reaction with ethylene diamine. This reaction may be follow either one of three path ways. The first gives the monocarboxamide (5), whereas the second gives the dicarboxamide (6), while the last one gives a heterocyclic product (7). All the synthesized compounds, have been characterized by physical and infrared and electronic spectral means

Cobalt (II) complexes with mixed ligands including 4-hydroxy- benzaldehyde semicarbazone (HBSCH) and esters of amino acids - A {phenol glycine ester (GlyP), phenol alanine ester (AlaP), 2-aminophenol glycine ester (GlyA) and 2-aminophenol alanine ester (AlaA)} have been prepared and characterized by physical chemical techniques. General formulaes [Co(HBSCH)(A)2(NO3)]NO3, [Co(HBSCH)(A)2(NO3)2], [Co(HBSCH)2(A)(NO3)]NO3 and [Co(HBSCH)2(A)(NO3)2] have been proposed for the complexes prepared in neutral medium. Whereas, the formulaes [Co(HBSC)(A)2] and [Co(HBSC)2(A)] have been proposed for the complexes prepared in basic medium (where HBSC = deprotonated HBSCH ligand). The study suggested that all the complexes had octahedral geometries.

Laboratory experiments were carried out to evaluate the response of 4th and 6th larval instars and 1week old adults Latheticus oryzae by exposure for 24, 48, and 72 hour to wheat treated with different concentrations of the three pyrethroids: ALPHACHEM® (5 EC), TRUST® (25 WP) and DECIS® (20 EC). Based on the Lc50 values of the three insecticides the result showed that 4th instar larvae were much susceptible to the insecticides than the 6th instar larvae and adults. The toxicities of insecticides increased (the values of Lc50 decreased ) as the exposure period increased from 24 to 72 hour. Also th study showed that, ALPHACEM and DECIS were more effective than TRUST.

Blood transfusion is the process of referring blood. Or blood – based products from one person into the circulatory system of another blood transfusion may treat medical condition. The blood bank is the section of the lab that processes and distributes blood products under the supervision of a medical director certified in transfusion medicine.
This study was conducted to determine the effect of storage for varying periods on some haematological parameters.
The study include (120) blood sample admitted to Mosul Hospital (Central Blood Bank of Mosul for Blood Donation), (60) of them as normal donors and the other (60) received blood to treatment, in order to evaluate the effect of these changes on the recipients after transfusion to avoid transfusion complications as much as possible.
There is a highly significant decrease in hemoglobin concentration, packed cell volume (P.C.V. %), and also decrease in total white blood cell (W.B.C.) count and platelets.

Key words: Stored blood, blood bank, haematological parameters.

The influence of air hole radius on the numerical aperture, total dispersion, effective area, and nonlinear coefficient for the photonic crystal fibers are investigated. This study shows, when the pitch size and the number of rings holes are held constant, the increasing of air hole radius up to 0.8m gives better coupling efficiency due to the increasing in numerical aperture. The results show that the zero dispersion point is shifted toward the shorter wavelength due to the increasing of air hole radius.
The PCF structure of 0.8 m gives an effective area 10 µm2, nonlinear coefficient 16 km-1W-1 and zero dispersion at communication wavelength 1.0m. While the same structure gives negative dispersion 80 ps/(nm.km), effective area 8 m2 and nonlinear coefficient 19.8 km-1W-1 at communication wavelength 0.8 m of Ti-Za laser.

A theoretical analysis of the doping density level influence on the output characteristics of GaAs/Al0.45Ga0.55As triple quantum well QCL emitting at (=9 m) is presented. The employed theoretical model was based on Schrodinger equation analysis. Six different doping density levels, have been used in this study to explain doping density level influence on model gain as a function of wavelength and negative differential resistance (NDR). In the conventionally employed high doping regime, the wavelength shift to the shorter wavelength furthermore to decrease of the peak gain value with doping density level increase has been observed. The available current range before the occurrence of the NDR reduced when the doping density level decrease was found.

A theoretical study was made of the pressure dependence of lattice frequencies and distribution function for aluminum by analyzing phonon frequency spectrum, using Grüneisen approximation and many equations of state (EOS).
Each change in the specific volume of a crystal excites a change in the frequencies of lattice vibration in a very complex manner . This work shows how this complexity can be overcome at least approximately depe- nding on Grüneisen approximation and Murnaghan , Birch- Murnaghan and Vinet equations of state.

The present study was conducted to determine the effects of gamma rays on specific activity of dihydrofolate reductase and folate content of Black seed (Nigella sativa L.) callus. The effect was dependent on doses of gamma rays.
The obtained results showed that specific activity of dihydrofolate reductase increased with the growth period at doses 5, 10, 30 and 50 rad, the total folate content increased substantially, but the high doses of rays (70, 90 rad) led to decrease of dihydrofolate reductase activity and folate content extracted from callus of different ages.
On the other hand, the results revealed that the exposed callus at 5 rad exhibited high level resistance to 10-1 M of aminpterin and trimethoprime. The specific activity of dihydrofolate reductase and total folate content were partly reserved as a result of radiation compared with non-radiated callus.

Thirty clinical isolates of gram negative bacilli isolated from diarrhea cases in children aged ≤5 years were investigated for the presence of β-lactamases, and it was found that 21 (70%) of them contain these enzymes. Fifteen positive isolates were selected for the detection of extended spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) and AmpC β-lactamases. The results showed that eight (53.3%) of the tested isolates were ESBLs producers, and nine(60%) of them were potential producers of AmpC β-lactamases. The enzymes were found more frequently in Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates, followed by Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli isolates.

Homogenized healthy seeds of Triticum aestivum L. Abo-Greab-3- cultivar were used to study the possibility of using a mixture of two protein synthesis inhibitors in Eukaryote and Prokaryote (cycloheximide and chloramphenicol) to increase cold and freezing tolerance of wheat. The study was designed as 3X3X3 factorial experiment and carried-out with three replicates according to randomize complete block design (RCBD). The first factor was represented by the temperature which comprised 20, 0, and -5 C˚. The second factor was the concentration of the antibiotics mixture (cycloheximide: chloramphenicol) which comprised 0:0; 50µg/ml : 50µg/ml and 100µg/ml:100 µg/ml. The third factor was the treatment period which were 0,12 and 24 hours.
Low temperatures showed reduction in percentage of germination, fresh and dry weights of plant, while an increase in percentage of emerged seedlings, leaf area, plant height, no. of leaves/plant and no. of tillers/plant were noticed. High concentrations of antibiotics mixture showed significant decrease in all studied parameters except in fresh weight of plant, while treatment in all studied triates except in dry weight of leaf. Most the interactions between the studied factors showed significant effects in most studied parameters.

The effects of semiconductor laser light on static and dynamic characteristics of bipolar exposed transistor had been studied experimentally. There was no significant influence on these characteristics in the absence of semiconductor light on transistor device. Analog optical modulation of bipolar transistor had been realized with semiconductor laser light direct modulation, while there was evident effect of injection current of semiconductor laser on the harmonic of spectrum modulation of transistor output. Optical modulation of bipolar transistor had been realized using pulse width modulation technique, and there was no deformation in pulse shape out from collector of the transistor modulated by small duration time pulses. Deformation in pulse shape out of the bipolar transistor has been observed when semiconductor laser modulated by large duration time pulses that is decrease qualification of data transfer.
