This article presents the complementary data regarding compatibilization of chitosan/κ-carrageenan polyelectrolyte complex for synthesizing of a soft film using ascorbic acid. It includes the thermal-theory for estimating the degradation of κ-carrageenan, as reflected in alteration of the structural properties of the blend. The data has been provided to demonstrate that the blend solution based on chitosan, a polycation, and κ-carrageenan, a polyanion polymer, produces an incompatible polyelectrolyte composite, susceptible to coaservative phase separation...

In this article we provide a data package containing the topology files and parameters compatible with the CHARMM22 force field for thirteen non-natural amino acids. The force field parameters were derived based on quantum mechanical (QM) calculations involving geometry optimization and potential energy surface scanning at the HF 6-31G(d) and HF 6-311G(d,p) levels of theory. The resulting energy data points were fitted to mathematical functions representing each component of the CHARMM22 force field. Further fine-tuning of the parameters utilized molecular mechanics energies, which were iteratively calculated and compared to the corresponding QM values until the latter were satisfactorily reproduced...

The data described are related to the article "Lysenin family proteins in earthworm coelomocytes - comparative approach" (B. Swiderska, S. Kedracka-Krok, T. Panz, A.J. Morgan, A. Falniowski, P.Grzmil, B. Plytycz, 2016) [1]. Lysenin family proteins were identified based on unique peptides sequenced by tandem mass spectrometry coupled with liquid chromatography (LC-MS/MS) in lumbricid earthworms Eisenia andrei and E. fetida, the latter with or without the MUG-like fluorophore. Lysenin and lysenin-related protein 2 (LRP-2, fetidin) were identified in all 9 investigated specimens of Eisenia sp...

The data described here provide standard performance measures following administration of a fingerprint matching task to expert analysts, trained students and novice control participants. Measures include accuracy on 'same' and 'different' trials, and the associated measures of sensitivity of discrimination (d') and response bias (C). In addition, speed of correct response is provided. The provision of these data will enable the interested reader to conduct meta-analyses relating to questions of fingerprint expertise and fingerprint training (see "Fact or friction: examination of the transparency, reliability and sufficiency of the ACE-V method of fingerprint analysis" (Stevenage and Pitfield, in press) [1])...

Data presented here refer to 57,885 patients on lipid-lowering statin therapy from the Dyslipidaemia International Study (DYSIS) registry. Subjects were divided into 3 discrete subsets: those at very high-risk, high-risk, and non-high-risk for cardiovascular events, with assigned low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) targets of 70 mg/dl, 100 mg/dl and 115 mg/dl, respectively. Overall, the highest proportion of patients meeting their LDL-C target was seen in the UAE and Kuwait (49.5%), while the lowest was seen in Germany (14...

Data are related to the multi-objective optimization process applied to the building materials to obtain high energy-efficient precast walls for cold climate. The methodology has been explained on the paper entitled "High performance precast external walls for cold climate by a multi criteria methodology" (Baglivo and Congedo, 2016) [1]. The modeFRONTIER rel.4.3 optimization tool has been used to evaluate the dynamic behaviour of the building components in accordance with the UNI EN ISO 13786:2008 and to obtain a multitude of high efficiency configurations...

Qualitative modeling approaches allow to provide a coarse-grained description of the functioning of cellular networks when experimental data are scarce and heterogeneous. We translate the primary literature data on the response of Escherichia coli to hyperosmotic stress caused by NaCl addition into a piecewise linear (PL) model. We provide a data file of the qualitative model, which can be used for simulation of changes of protein concentrations and of DNA coiling during the physiological response of the bacterium to the stress...

Nucleotide (DNA) sequence analysis provides important clues regarding the characteristics and taxonomic position of an organism. With the intention that, DNA sequence analysis is very crucial to learn about hierarchical classification of that particular organism. This dataset (patent US 7547531) is chosen to simplify all the complex raw data buried in undisclosed DNA sequences which help to open doors for new collaborations. In this data, a total of 48 unidentified DNA sequences from patent US 7547531 were selected and their complete sequences were retrieved from NCBI BioSample database...

The amyloidogenic peptide VDSWNVLVAG from Bgl2p-glucantransferase of Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell wall and its modifying analog VESWNVLVAG were taken for the construction of four types of bilayers which differ by orientation of the peptides in the layers and of the layers relative to each other. These bilayers were used as starting models for the molecular dynamics (MD) at three charge states (neutral, pH3, and pH5). The changes of the fraction of secondary structure during 1 ns simulations were received for 96 MD trajectories...

This article reports changes in the striatal non-synaptic mitochondrial proteome of DJ-1, Parkin, and PINK1 knockout (KO) rats at 3 months of age. DJ-1, Parkin, and PINK1 mutations cause autosomal-recessive parkinsonism. It is thought that loss of function of these proteins contributes to the onset and pathogenesis of Parkinson׳s disease (PD). As DJ-1, Parkin, and PINK1 have functions in the regulation of mitochondria, the dataset generated here highlights protein expression changes, which can be helpful for understanding pathological mitochondrial alterations...

The data presented here support the research article "Association of serum mimecan with angiographic coronary collateralization in patients with stable coronary artery disease and chronic total occlusion" (Shen et al., 2016) [1] where elevated circulating mimecan levels reflected poor angiographic coronary collateralization in such patients. The data included in this article are composed by one figure and consist of (1) validation of serum mimecan measurement by assessing inter- and intra-assay variability in 45 samples; (2) findings on the relation of clinical and angiographic characteristics and biochemical parameters to coronary collateralization in 559 patients; (3) the diagnostic value of serum mimecan for poor collateralization, which was derived from plotting receiver-operating characteristic curves and logistic regression analysis...

The dataset of curcumin derivatives consists of 45 compounds (Table 1) with their anti cancer biological activity (IC50) against P388 cell line. 45 curcumin derivatives were used in the model development where 30 of these compounds were in the training set and the remaining 15 compounds were in the test set. The development of the QSAR model involved the use of the multiple linear regression analysis (MLRA) method. Based on the method, r(2) value, r(2)(CV) value of 0.81, 0.67 were obtained. The QSAR model was also employed to predict the biological activity of compounds in the test set...

Here we provide the correlation among different carotid ultrasound (US) variables to assess echogenicity n standard carotid US and to assess intraplaque neovascularization on contrast enhanced US. We recruited 45 consecutive subjects with an asymptomatic≥50% carotid artery stenosis. Carotid plaque echogenicity at standard US was visually graded according to Gray-Weale classification (GW) and measured by the greyscale median (GSM), a semi-automated computerized measurement performed by Adobe Photoshop(®)...
