Ciclopirox (CPX) is a synthetic antifungal drug that is mainly used to treat dermatomycoses. The aim of the present study was to determine whether CPX could influence Ewing sarcoma progression. The present study suggested that CPX treatment may inhibit Ewing sarcoma (ES) progression through Ewing sarcoma breakpoint region 1‑Friend leukemia integration 1 (EWS‑FLI1), a common fusion transcript structure in patients with ES. To determine the underlying mechanisms of ES progression, cross analysis was conducted on three high‑throughput genome or transcript me datasets from the Gene Expression Omnibus...

We present here an integrated nanotechnology/biology strategy for cancer immunotherapy that uses arginine nanoparticles (ArgNPs) to deliver CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing machinery into cells to generate SIRP-α knockout macrophages. The NP system efficiently codelivers single guide RNA (sgRNA) and Cas9 protein required for editing to knock out the "don't eat me signal" in macrophages that prevents phagocytosis of cancer cells. Turning off this signal increased the innate phagocytic capabilities of the macrophages by 4-fold...

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanofibers have been widely applied in various fields including photocatalysis, energy storage and solar cells due to the advantages of low cost, high abundance and nontoxicity. However, the low conductivity of ions and bulk electrons hinder its rapid development in lithium-ion batteries (LIB). In order to improve the electrochemical performances of TiO2 nanomaterials as anode for LIB, hierarchically porous TiO2 nanofibers with different tetrabutyl titanate (TBT)/paraffin oil ratios were prepared as anode for LIB via a versatile single-nozzle microemulsion electrospinning (ME-ES) method followed by calcining...

Amaranth ( sp.) is a C plant adapted to poor soils and regions with limited rainfall and high temperatures. The plant is characterized by a yield of up to 85 t/ha, CP concentration of up to 28.5% of DM, and DM digestibility of 59 to 79%, which may vary depending on the species and variety. The potential of this plant as a forage source for ruminants has not been completely considered. This study aimed at assessing the nutritive value of silages from corn (), 2 amaranth () varieties (var. Kharkovskiy and Sem), and an amaranth-corn combination by chemical composition, silage fermentation characteristics, in vivo digestibility, and in situ DM degradability...

Mesendoderm (ME) refers to the primitive streak in mammalian embryos, which has the ability to further differentiate into mesoderm and endoderm. A better understanding on the regulatory networks of ME differentiation of embryonic stem (ES) cells would provide important insights on early embryo patterning and a possible guidance for ES applications in regenerative medicine. Studies on developmental biology and embryology have offered a great deal of knowledge about key signaling pathways involved in primitive streak formation...

Three β-triketimine ligands, (L(1): [CH{CMeN(2,4,6-Me3-C6H2)}2C(CMe3N(2-MeO-C6H4)], L(2): [CH{CMeN(2,4-Me2-C6H3)}2C(CMe3N(2-MeO-C6H4)] and L(3): [CH{CMeN(2-Me-C6H4)}2C(CMe3N(2-MeO-C6H4)]), were synthesized and then characterized by (1)H and (13)C{(1)H} NMR spectroscopy, elemental analysis and electrospray (ES) MS. β-triketimine cobalt(ii) complexes were then prepared by the interaction of cobalt(ii) bromide with L(1-3) in the presence of NaBArF (BArF = [{3,5-(CF3)2-C6H3}4B](-) ). Five-coordinate dimeric bromide-bridged species [(LCoμ-Br)2][BArF]2 were obtained...

Ni(II)-flavonolate complexes [Ni(II)L(R)(fla)] (L(R)H: 2-{[bis(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)amino]methyl}-p/m-R-benzoic acid, R: p-OMe (1), p-Me (2), m-Br (4) and m-NO2 (5), fla: flavonolate) were synthesized and characterized with relevance to structural and functional models for the ES (enzyme-substrate) adduct of the Ni(II)-containing quercetin 2,3-dioxygenase (2,3-QD). Their structures, spectroscopic features, redox properties and the reactivity toward molecular oxygen have been investigated. The complexes show a similar distorted octahedral structure and higher enzyme-type dioxygenation reactivity than other reported metal-flavonolate complexes in the oxidative O-heterocyclic ring-opening of the bound substrate flavonolate at lower temperature owing to the introduced carboxylate group in the supporting model ligands...

A series of mononuclear Co(II)-flavonolate complexes [Co(II)L(R)(fla)] (L(R)H = 2-{[bis(pyridin-2-ylmethyl)amino]methyl}-p/m-R-benzoic acid; R = p-OMe (1), p-Me (2), m-Br (4), and m-NO2 (5); fla = flavonolate) were designed and synthesized as structural and functional models for the ES (enzyme-substrate) complexes to mimic the active site of the Co(II)-containing quercetin 2,3-dioxygenase (Co-2,3-QD). The metal center Co(II) ion in each complex shows a similar distorted octahedral geometry. The model complexes display high enzyme-type dioxygenation reactivity (oxidative O-heterocyclic ring opening of the coordinated substrate flavonolate) at low temperature, presumably due to the attached carboxylate group in the ligands...

We theoretically evaluated binding energies (Eb's) between various gas molecules and the Cu center open metal site (Cu-OMS) of Cu paddle-wheel units, [Cu2(O2CR)4] (R = H, Me, or Ph) using density functional theory (DFT) and MP2-MP4. The optimized geometry of the model system [Cu2(O2CPh)4] agrees with the experimental structure. The Eb of CO with [Cu2(O2CH)4] is only slightly different between the open-shell singlet and triplet states. The calculated Eb decreases in the order MeNC > H2O > MeCN > C2H4 > C2H2 > CO > CO2 > N2 > CH4 > H2...

Neural differentiation of embryonic and adult stem cells has been reported previously. Several studies have used different proportions of serum or a cocktail of growth and differentiation factors for this purpose. In the present study, we examined neural differentiation of mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells in KoSR-containing media. We also investigated neural differentiation of mouse adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ADSCs) in a medium containing KoSR, a synthetic serum replacement, and compared it with neural differentiation in low-serum condition...

The transcription factors Sox2, Oct4, and Nanog regulate within a narrow dose-range embryonic stem (ES) cell pluripotency and cell lineage commitment. Excess of Oct4 relative to Sox2 guides cells to mesoendoderm (ME), while abundance of Sox2 promotes neuroectoderm (NE) formation. Literature does not address whether ethanol interferes with these regulatory interactions during neural development. We hypothesized that ethanol exposure of ES cells in early differentiation causes an imbalance of Oct4 and Sox2 that diverts cells away from NE to ME lineage, consistent with the teratogenesis effects caused by prenatal alcohol exposure...
