CdS decorated CuS structures have been controllably synthesized through a one-pot hydrothermal method. The morphologies and compositions of the as-prepared samples could be concurrently well controlled by simply tuning the amount of CdCl2 and thiourea. Using this strategy, the morphology of the products experienced from messy to flower-like morphologies with multiple porous densities, together with the phase evolution from pure CuS to the CdS/CuS composites. Serving as a photocatalyst, the samples synthesized with the addition of 1 mmol cadmium chloride and 3 mmol thiourea during synthetic process, showed the best photocatalytic activity, which could reach a maximum photocatalytic efficiency of 93% for methyl orange (MO) photodegradation after 150 min...

The okaramines are a class of complex indole alkaloids isolated from Penicillium and Aspergillus species. Their potent insecticidal activity arises from selectively activating glutamate-gated chloride channels (GluCls) in invertebrates, not affecting human ligand-gated anion channels. Okaramines B (1) and D (2) contain a polycyclic skeleton, including an azocine ring and an unprecedented 2-dimethyl-3-methyl-azetidine ring. Due to their complex scaffold, okaramines have inspired many total synthesis efforts, but the enzymology of the okaramine biosynthetic pathway remains unexplored...

Antimicrobial cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC) has low miscibility with acrylic resin monomer but can be homogeneously mixed using ethanol as a cosolvent. This study investigated the effects of ethanol addition on the properties of a cold-cure acrylic resin. Ethanol was an excellent cosolvent for CPC and methyl methacrylate monomer (MMA), but the cured resin exhibited a strong change in coloration to yellow (ΔE*ab>8) and a drastically reduced bending strength (from 97 to 25 MPa) and elastic modulus (from 2...

Excitatory amino acid transporters (EAATs) are secondary active transporters of L-glutamate and L- or D-aspartate. These carriers also mediate a thermodynamically uncoupled anion conductance that is gated by Na(+) and substrate binding. The activation of the anion channel by binding of Na(+) alone, however, has only been demonstrated for mammalian EAAC1 (EAAT3) and EAAT4. To date, no difference has been observed for the substrate dependence of anion channel gating between the glial, EAAT1 and EAAT2, and the neuronal isoforms EAAT3, EAAT4 and EAAT5...

Kinetic and biophysical studies have been carried out on a lysosomal α-l-fucosidase purified from the fresh water mussel, Lamellidens corrianus. The enzyme migrates as a single band in SDS-PAGE as well as native PAGE corresponding to a Mr of 56kDa. Mass spectrometric analysis yielded a molecular mass of 56175.1Da for the enzyme, and peptide mass fingerprinting studies showed that it shares sequence homology with other fucosidases. Zymogram analysis showed that the α-l-fucosidase hydrolyzed 4-methyl umbelliferyl α-l-fucopyranoside...

This study combines experimental and numerical approaches to investigate the microstructure and mechanical behaviour of non-miscible plasticised starch/zein blends. The concept of Representative Elementary Size (RES) is used to rank the effect of five different plasticisers (cholinium acetate, glycerol, butyl methyl imidazolium chloride, glycerol-choline chloride, urea-choline chloride) inducing microstructural and mechanical changes in the blends. Microstructural and mechanical RESs are derived from microscopy image analysis and Finite Element Modelling of elasticity behaviour of studied blends...

Gold(i) chloride complexes with the diarsenic ligands cis-1,4-dihydro-1,4-diarsinines (cis-DHDAs) were synthesized. X-ray diffraction revealed that they formed one-dimensional polymeric structures through aurophilic interactions. Their higher-ordered structures are controlled by the ligand structure; methyl- and t-butyl substituted ligands offered transoid-transoid and transoid-cisoid conformations, respectively. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations indicated that the electronic structure of the aurophilic network was highly dependent on the conformations...

The mechanism of epilepsy-induced axonal impairment is poorly understood. N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors (NMDARs) play important roles in epilepsy and mediate structural and functional axonal impairment. GSK-3β and Cdk5 affect axons and are regulated by NMDARs, while their roles in epilepsy-induced axonal impairment are unclear. We demonstrated that axonal impairment is characterized by neurofilament heavy (NFH) reduction, amyloid precursor protein (APP) accumulation, and increased tau phosphorylation accompanied by a decrease of total tau in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) patients and pentylenetetrazol (PTZ)-kindled rats...

The reaction of methyl chloride with the hydroxyl radical OH is an important process in the troposphere. The kinetics of this reaction has been thoroughly studied in the gas phase, both experimentally and theoretically, but little is known about the effect of water on this reaction. In particular, investigating the reaction mechanism at the air-water interface is key in order to better understand the role of cloud water droplets and aerosols on the overall oxidation capacity of the troposphere. In this work, we have implemented a "rare event" approach combined to QM/MM (Quantum Mechanics and Molecular Mechanics) Molecular Dynamics simulations to investigate the dynamics of the H-abstraction reaction CH3Cl + OH → CH2Cl + H2O at the air-water interface...

Textile effluent consists of enormous quantities of toxic dyes, which are being discharged into natural aqueous system and thus contaminate the water quality. Hence it is important to develop an eco-friendly and cost effective technology to treat the dyes contaminated wastewater. In this research, an integrated approach of electrochemical oxidation (EO) and biodegradation process (BP) was studied of methyl red (MR) dye. In EO, RuO2-IrO2-TiO2 is used as anode and titanium mesh electrode as cathode. This was followed by BP of the treated EO effluent...

Mercury sulfides are used in Ayurvedic medicines, Tibetan medicines, and Chinese medicines for thousands of years and are still used today. Cinnabar (α-HgS) and metacinnabar (β-HgS) are different from mercury chloride (HgCl2) and methylmercury (MeHg) in their disposition and toxicity. Whether such scenario applies to weanling and aged animals is not known. To address this question, weanling (21d) and aged (450d) rats were orally given Zuotai (54% β-HgS, 30mg/kg), HgS (α-HgS, 30mg/kg), HgCl2 (34.6mg/kg), or MeHg (MeHgCl, 3...

Braid-reinforced hollow fiber membranes with high mechanical properties and considerable antifouling surface were prepared by blending poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) with poly(vinyl chloride-co-poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate) (poly(VC-co-PEGMA)) copolymer via non-solvent induced phase separation (NIPS). The tensile strength of the braid-reinforced PVC hollow fiber membranes were significantly larger than those of previously reported various types of PVC hollow fiber membranes. The high interfacial bonding strength indicated the good compatibility between the coating materials and the surface of polyethylene terephthalate (PET)-braid...

An effective and solvent-less method for the rapid determination of four commonly detected parabens (methyl-, ethyl-, propyl- and butyl-) in human urine samples is described. This method employed ultrasound-assisted emulsification microextraction (USAEME) before identification and quantitation of the parabens via on-line acetylation gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Urine samples were enzymatically de-conjugated with β-glucuronidase and then extracted by an optimal USAEME procedure for the measurement of total concentrations of target analytes...

Exposure to mercury in humans, other mammals, and birds is primarily dietary, with mercury in the methylated form and bound to cysteine in the tissues of prey items. Yet dosing studies are generally carried out using methylmercury chloride. Here we tested whether the accumulation of total mercury in zebra finch blood, egg, muscle, liver, kidney or brain differed depending on whether dietary mercury was complexed with chloride or cysteine. We found no effect of form of mercury on tissue accumulation. Some previous studies have found lower accumulation of mercury in tissues of animals fed complexed mercury...

Transmembrane protein 16A (TMEM16A), also called anoctamin 1 (ANO1), is a calcium-activated chloride channel expressed widely mammalian cells, including epithelia, vascular smooth muscle tissue, electrically excitable cells, and some tumors. TMEM16A inhibitors have been proposed for treatment of disorders of epithelial fluid and mucus secretion, hypertension, asthma, and possibly cancer. Herein we report, by screening, the discovery of 2-acylaminocycloalkylthiophene-3-carboxylic acid arylamides (AACTs) as inhibitors of TMEM16A and analysis of 48 synthesized analogs (10ab-10bw) of the original AACT compound (10aa)...

In the present work, the synthesis, characterization (FT-IR, multinuclear ((1)H and (13)C) NMR, AAS, Raman, and elemental analysis), DNA binding (cyclic voltammetry, UV-Vis spectroscopy and viscometry), and in vitro biological assessment of nine new ferrocene-based ureas are reported. The desulphurization of ferrocenyl thioureas to the corresponding oxo analogues using aqueous sodium hydroxide and mercuric chloride led to the ferrocenyl ureas (F1-F9) in high yields. The DNA binding studies performed by cyclic voltammetry and UV-Vis spectroscopy produced results that are in close agreement with one another for the binding constants (K) and an electrostatic mode of interaction was observed...

Biofilm formation is problematic and hence undesirable in medical and industrial settings. In addition to bacteria, phototrophic organisms are an integral component of biofilms that develop on surfaces immersed in natural waters. 1-Alkyl-3-methyl imidazolium ionic liquids (IL) with varying alkyl chain length were evaluated for their influence on the formation of monospecies (Navicula sp.) and multispecies biofilms under phototrophic conditions.
