The Radiotherapy Optimisation Test Set (TROTS) is an extensive set of problems originating from radiotherapy (radiation therapy) treatment planning. This dataset is created for 2 purposes: (1) to supply a large-scale dense dataset to measure performance and quality of mathematical solvers, and (2) to supply a dataset to investigate the multi-criteria optimisation and decision-making nature of the radiotherapy problem. The dataset contains 120 problems (patients), divided over 6 different treatment protocols/tumour types...

High level of UV-B irradiation followed by dark treatment accumulates secondary metabolites in Clematis terniflora DC. To investigate the response mechanism under high level of UV-B irradiation followed by dark treatment, transcriptomic and proteomic analyses were performed in leaves of Clematis terniflora DC. The experimental design for the transcriptomic and proteomic analyses in leaves of C. terniflora under stresses was organized into a picture. For transcriptomics, mRNA-sequencing technology was used. Genes identified in leaves of C...

Heterologous expression of high amounts of recombinant proteins is a milestone for research and industrial purposes. Single domain antibodies (sdAbs) are heavy-chain only antibody fragments with applications in the biotechnological, medical and industrial fields. The simple nature and small size of sdAbs allows for efficient expression of the soluble molecule in different hosts. However, in some cases, it results in low functional protein yield. To overcome this limitation, expression of a 6xHistag sdAb was attempted in different conditions in Escherichia coli BL21(DE3) cells...

This article is related to (Ø. Strømland, Ø.S. Handegård, M.L. Govasli, H. Wen, Ø. Halskau, 2017) [1]. In protein and polypeptide-membrane interaction studies, negatively charged lipids are often used as they are a known driver for membrane interaction. When using fluorescence spectroscopy and CD as indicators of polypeptide binding and conformational change, respectively, the effect of zwitterionic lipids only should be documented. The present data documents several aspects of how two engineered polypeptides (A-Cage-C and A-Lnk-C) derived from the membrane associating protein alpha-Lactalbumin affects and are affected by the presence of zwitterionic bilayers in the form of vesicles...

The data presented in this article are related to the research article entitled "Retinoic acid induces hypersegmentation and enhances cytotoxicity of neutrophils against cancer cells" (S. Shrestha, S.Y. Kim, Y.J. Young, J.K. Kim, J.M. Lee, M. Shin, D.K. Song, C.W. Hong, 2017) [1]. This article complements the potential of retinoic acid to induce changes in effector function of human neutrophils. Here the datasets describe the rate of apoptosis, changes in numbers of nuclear lobes, and the expressions of surface markers in human neutrophils in presence or absence of retinoic acid...

DPB162-AE is a valuable tool to study store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE), as this compound was developed as a 2-APB analog that inhibits SOCE more potently and more selectively than 2-APB itself. In addition to this, we showed that, in some conditions, DPB162-AE can deplete the endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) stores in intact cells, including the cervical carcinoma HeLa cell line and the diffuse large B-cell lymphoma SU-DHL-4 cell line. Here, we present data regarding the toxicity of DPB162-AE in HeLa and SU-DHL-4 cells...

Voltage-gated Ca(2+) channels are of central relevance in mediating numerous intracellular and transcellular processes including excitation-contraction coupling, excitation secretion-coupling, hormone and neurotransmitter release and gene expression. The Cav2.3 R-type Ca(2+) channel is a high-voltage activated channel which plays a crucial role in neurotransmitter release, long-term potentiation and hormone release. Furthermore, Cav2.3 R-type channels were reported to be involved in ictogenesis, epileptogenesis, fear behavior, sleep, pre-and postsynaptic integration and rhythmicity within the hippocampus...

Lj-RGD3 which contains three Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) motifs was identified from the buccal glands of Lampetra japonica. In the present data article, acute toxicity of recombinant Lj-RGD3 (rLj-RGD3) was performed in Sprague Dawley (SD) rats. Tissue observation data of these SD rats treated with normal saline (NS) or rLj-RGD3 were shown. Furthermore, confocal microscope data were also shown to observe the location of FITC-labeled rLj-RGD3 in the ovarian cancer cells (HeyA8 cells). This paper contains data related to research concurrently published in "rLj-RGD3 induces apoptosis via the mitochondrial-dependent pathway and inhibits adhesion, migration and invasion of human HeyA8 cells via FAK pathway" (Q...

In this paper, we presented the datasets generated using Chose Game representation (CGR) and Choase Game Representation of Frequencies (FCGR) of bacterial and archaeal 16S rRNA sequences. The data in the form of graphical representations was yielded with the help of ENDMEMO tool. The computational representation of these data datasets is useful for studies and interpretation of microbial sequences. Based on a technique from chaotic dynamics, the method produces a picture of any gene (DNA and RNA) sequence which displays both local and global patterns...

The data here is related to the article, "Curcumin enhances poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitor sensitivity to chemotherapy in breast cancer cells" (Y.E Choi, and E. Park, 2015) [1]. The article shows that curcumin, as a natural bioactive compound, enhanced DNA damage response and induced cell death in MDA-MB-231 cells [1]. This data includes that breast cancer cells, MDA-MB-231 respond to DNA damage after UV irradiation, post to resveratrol treatment. The data shows that resveratrol treatment results in reduction of S-phase cell cycle and induction of γ-H2AX, which is a hallmark of DNA damage after UV irradiation in breast cancer cells, MDA-MB-231...

Here, we presented new original data on the effects of iron depletion on the circulating lipid profile in B6HCV mice, a murine model of HCV-related dyslipidemia. Male adult B6HCV mice were subjected to non-invasive iron depletion by low iron diet. Serum iron concentration was assessed for evaluating the effects of the dietary iron depletion. Concentrations of circulating triglycerides, total cholesterol, Low Density Lipoproteins (LDLs), High Density Lipoproteins (HDLs) were analyzed and reported by using stacked line charts...

Here, we provide the dataset associated with our research article on the polyphosphate metabolism entitled, "Multi-level evaluation of Escherichia coli polyphosphate related mutants using global transcriptomic, proteomic and phenomic analyses". By integrating different omics levels (transcriptome, proteome and phenome), we were able to study Escherichia coli polyphosphate mutant strains (Δppk1, Δppx, and Δppk1-ppx). We have compiled here all datasets from DNA microarrys, q-proteomic (Isotope-Coded Protein Labeling, ICPL) and phenomic (Phenotype microarray) raw data we have obtained in all polyP metabolism mutants...

Cell extracts from A549, H460, and U2OS human cancer cell lines treated with cisplatin and docetaxel were analyzed by mass spectrometry (MS) proteomic analysis. The extracts were enriched for cellular signaling proteins using a mix of three different immobilized kinase inhibitors (Purvalanol B, Bisindolylmaleimide X, and (R)-3-(4-((1-Phenylethyl)amino)thieno[2,3-d]pyrimidin-6-yl)benzoic acid (SB6-060-05)) on sepharose bead columns. Raw data is deposited in the PRIDE database [1], project number PXD005286. Data presented () shows changes relative to untreated control for each biological replicate for the three cell lines...
