High throughput synthesis and characterization methods can significantly accelerate the rate of experimental research. For physical vapor deposition (PVD), high throughput synthesis methods include combinatorial sputtering with intentional gradients of metal/metalloid composition, temperature, and thickness across the substrate. However, many other synthesis parameters still remain out of reach for combinatorial methods. In this paper, we extend combinatorial sputtering parameters to include gradients of gaseous elements in thin films...

Although, cisplatin resistance is a major challenge in the treatment of ovarian cancer, the precise mechanisms underlying cisplatin resistance are not fully understood. Collagen type XI alpha 1 (COL11A1), a gene encoding a minor fibrillar collagen of the extracellular matrix, is identified as one of the most upregulated genes in cisplatin-resistant ovarian cancer and recurrent ovarian cancer. However, the exact functions of COL11A1 in cisplatin resistance are unknown. Here we demonstrate that COL11A1 binds to integrin α1β1 and discoidin domain receptor 2 (DDR2) and activates downstream signaling pathways to inhibit cisplatin-induced apoptosis in ovarian cancer cells...

The use of species distribution as a climate proxy for ecological forecasting is thought to be acceptable for invasive species. Kudzu (Pueraria montana var. lobata) is an important invasive whose northern distribution appears to be limited by winter survival; however, kudzu's cold tolerance thresholds are uncertain. Here, we used biogeographic evidence to hypothesize that exposure to - 20 °C is lethal for kudzu and thus determines its northern distribution limit. We evaluated this hypothesis using survival tests and electrolyte leakage to determine relative conductivity, a measure of cell damage, on 14 populations from eastern North America...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Tanshinone IIA is a chemical compound extracted from Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge, a perennial plant also known as red sage used in traditional Chinese medicine. Tanshinone IIA has been shown to protect against various organ injuries. In this study, we hypothesized that Tanshinone IIA could play an anti-oxidative role in contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) through enhancing Nrf2/ARE activation. METHODS: To test whether Tanshinone IIA can attenuate CIN, oxidative stress, and apoptosis, we utilized two models: an in vivo Sprague-Dawley rat model of ioversol-induced CIN and an in vitro cell model of oxidative stress in which HK2 cells, a human renal tubular cell line, are treated with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)...

The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) is a well-established, key resource for researchers studying Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In addition to updating and maintaining the official genomic sequence of this highly studied organism, SGD provides integrated data regarding gene functions and phenotypes, which are extracted from the published literature. The vast amount and variety of data housed in the database can prove challenging to navigate for the first-time user. Therefore, this chapter serves as an introduction describing how to search the database in order to discover new information...

The neural mechanisms conferring reduced motivation, as observed in depressed individuals, is poorly understood. Here, we examine in rodents if reduced motivation to exert effort is controlled by transmission from the lateral habenula (LHb), a nucleus overactive in depressed-like states, to the rostromedial tegmental nucleus (RMTg), a nucleus that inhibits dopaminergic neurons. In an aversive test wherein immobility indicates loss of effort, LHb→RMTg transmission increased during transitions into immobility, driving LHb→RMTg increased immobility, and inhibiting LHb→RMTg produced the opposite effects...

Rising life expectancy in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), coupled with the increasing burden of non-communicable diseases, accentuates the importance of generating information to support public health strategies. With this aim in mind, the purpose of this study was to identify correlates of physical activity and sedentary behavior in LMIC. We analyzed Wave 1 data (collected 2007⁻2010) from the World Health Organization’s longitudinal Study on global AGEing and adult health (SAGE), which focuses on nationally representative samples of adults aged 50 years and older from six countries (China, n = 13,157; India, n = 6560; Mexico, n = 2301; Russian Federation, n = 3763; South Africa, n = 3836; and Ghana, n = 4305)...

BACKGROUND: Oocyte vitrification is important for fertility preservation. There are debates, however, surrounding the components of the procedure itself. OBJECTIVE: before starting a vitrification program, we decided to (1) determine if blastocysts derived from previously frozen mouse embryos would be suitable to practice vitrification and (2) to analyze the factors that contributed to improving our "learning curve". MATERIALS AND METHODS: 58 expanded blastocysts cultured from commercially available frozen 1-cell mouse embryos (B6D2F1 x B6C3F1) were used...

The objectives were to investigate the physicochemical, molecular, rheological, and emulsifying properties of water soluble-sage seed gum (WSG). WSG mainly comprised galacturonic acid and xylose. FTIR and NMR analyses confirmed the presence of pectic polysaccharides in WSG. Additionally, the molecular weight of WSG (3.214) was higher than that of pectin standard (1.268). Compared to pectin standard solutions, WSG solutions exhibited higher shear thinning behavior and higher values of apparent viscosity (ηa,100 ) and consistency index (K) in steady shear measurements...

The inherent architectural and chemical complexities of microbial biofilms mask our understanding of how these communities form, survive, propagate, and influence their surrounding environment. Here we describe a simple and versatile workflow for the cultivation and characterization of model flow-cell based microbial ecosystems. A customized low shear, drip flow reactor was designed and employed to cultivate single and co-culture flow-cell biofilms at the air-liquid interface of several metal surfaces. Pseudomonas putida F1 and Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 were selected as model organisms for this study...
