Chemotherapeutic insensitivity remains one of the major obstacles in clinical treatment of lung squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). Recently, increasing evidence has suggested that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) promote tumorigenesis in many cancer types. However, the potential biological roles and regulatory mechanisms of lncRNAs in response to cisplatin treatment are poorly understood. Here, we found that lncRNA SFTA1P (surfactant associated 1, pseudogene), highly expressed in lung, was down-regulated in LSCC tissues and could be induced upon cisplatin treatment in LSCC cells...

Despite many decades of research of diodes, which are fundamental components of electronic and photoelectronic devices with p-n or Schottky junctions using bulk or 2D materials, stereotyped architectures and complex technological processing (doping and multiple material operations) have limited future development. Here, a novel rectification device, an orientation-induced diode, assembled using only few-layered black phosphorus (BP) is investigated. The key to its realization is to utilize the remarkable anisotropy of BP in low dimensions and change the charge-transport conditions abruptly along the different crystal orientations...

Adverse intrauterine environment may induce adult disease in offspring, but the mechanisms are not well understood. It is reported that fresh embryo transfer (ET) in assisted reproductive technology presents extra-high maternal estradiol (E2) and prenatal high E2 exposure increases the risk of organ disorders in later life. We found male newborns and children of fresh ET showed increased fasting insulin and the homeostasis model of assessment for insulin resistance index (HOMA-IR). Prenatal high E2 exposed (HE) male mice grew heavier than control and developed insulin resistance, they also showed increased food intake with enhanced orexigenic hypothalamic neuropeptide Y (NPY) expression...
