Nanostructured fayalite (α-Fe(2)SiO(4)) with a large volume fraction of interfaces is synthesized for the first time via single-step mechanosynthesis, starting from a 2α-Fe(2)O(3) + 2Fe + 3SiO(2) mixture. The nonequilibrium state of the as-prepared silicate is characterized by the presence of deformed polyhedra in the interface/surface regions of nanoparticles.

Extrahepatic biliary atresia classically presents in the neonatal period with jaundice and pale stools. The lack of bile pigment in stool can be unrecognised, delaying diagnosis and surgical treatment. Vitamin K is given at birth to reduce the risk of haemorrhagic disease of the newborn, but this may be inadequate ...

We propose that the injection of electric currents can be used to independently manipulate the position and chirality of vortex-like domain walls in metallic ferromagnetic nanotubes. We support this proposal upon theoretical and numerical assessment of the magnetization dynamics driven by such currents. We show that proper interplay between the ...

It has been suggested for some time that circadian rhythm abnormalities underlie the development of multiple psychiatric disorders. However, it is unclear how disruptions in individual circadian genes might regulate mood and anxiety. Here we found that mice lacking functional mPeriod 1 (mPer1) or mPeriod 2 (mPer2) individually did not ...

Synthesis of three pyrene modified nucleosides was accomplished using the CuAAC reaction. Hereby, pyrene is attached either to the 5'-position of thymidine or to the 2'-position of 2'-deoxyuridine through triazolemethylene linkers, or to the 2'-position of 2'-deoxyuridine through a more rigid triazole linker. The three nucleosides were incorporated into oligonucleotides ...

Overexpression of multiple copies in T-cell lymphoma-1 (MCT-1) oncogene accompanies malignant phenotypic changes in human lymphoma cells. Specific disruption of MCT-1 results in reduced tumorigenesis, suggesting a potential for MCT-1-targeted therapeutic strategy. MCT-1 is known as a cap-binding protein and has a putative RNA-binding motif, the PUA-domain, at its C-terminus. ...

Determination of cell signalling behaviour is crucial for understanding the physiological response to a specific stimulus or drug treatment. Current approaches for large-scale data analysis do not effectively incorporate critical topological information provided by the signalling network. We herein describe a novel model- and data-driven hybrid approach, or signal transduction ...

MDM2 participates in protein synthesis, folding, and ubiquitin-mediated degradation and is therefore a proteostasis hub protein. The MDM2 interactome contains over 100 proteins, yet stratification of dominant MDM2-interacting proteins has not been achieved. 8-plex iTRAQ (nanoLC-MS/MS) of MCF7 cells treated with Nutlin-3 identified the most abundant protein changes over early ...

Basics of DNA barcoding suppose the creation and operation of an extensive library based on reliably (including possibility for validation) identified specimens. Therefore, information concerning morphological identification of the individual samples used for DNA barcoding, for example, identification keys and descriptions used, must be clearly explained. In addition, the maximum ...

Meiotic chromosome segregation requires homologous pairing, synapsis and crossover recombination during meiotic prophase. The checkpoint kinase ATR has been proposed to be involved in the quality surveillance of these processes, although the underlying mechanisms remain largely unknown. In our present study, we generated mice lacking HORMAD2, a protein that localizes ...

Plants encounter environmental stress challenges distinct from those of other eukaryotes because of their relative non-mobility. Therefore, plants may have evolved distinct regulatory aspects of conserved cellular functions. Plants, like other eukaryotes, share aspects of both calcium and calmodulin-based cellular signaling and the autophagic process of cellular renewal. Here, we ...
