Analysis of 387 sugarcane clones using Bru 1 diagnostic markers revealed two possible sources of Bru 1 in Chinese cultivars: one from Saccharum spontaneum and another from Saccharum robustum of New Guinea. Sugarcane brown rust (SBR) is an important fungal disease in many sugarcane production areas around the world, and can cause considerable yield losses in susceptible sugarcane cultivars. One major SBR resistance gene, named Bru1, initially identified from cultivar R570, was shown to be a major SBR resistance source in most of the sugarcane producing areas of the world...

Marine invertebrates associate with diverse microorganisms. Microorganisms even inhabit coelomic fluid (CF), namely, the fluid filling the main body cavity of echinoderms. The CF microbiota potentially impacts host health and disease. Here, we analysed the CF microbiota in two common coastal starfish species, Patiria pectinifera and Asterias amurensis. Although microbial community structures were highly variable among individual starfish, those of P. pectinifera were compositionally similar to those in the surrounding seawater...

A novel hybrid flame retardant combining graphene oxide (GO) with long-chain phosphaphenanthrene was fabricated via surface grafting reaction. Taking advantageous of the double barrier effects, including the physical shield contributed by graphene nanoplates during the initial stage and the chemical char contributed by phosphaphenanthrene during the later stage, greatly decreased the release rate of decomposed volatiles from the resin, as well as minimized the release of oxygen and combustion heat. Hence, such hybrid flame retardant can overcome the shortcomings of early acid catalyzed degradation effects caused by conventional flame retardants containing phosphorus...

Investigating samples of the cancellothyridid brachiopod Terebratulina collected during the IceAGE (Me85/3) expedition of RV METEOR at the continental shelf around Iceland with both morphometrical and molecular methods, we were for the first time able to detect a hybridization event between brachiopod sister species, which are thought to have separated 60 MYA. Terebratulina retusa and T. septentrionalis can clearly be distinguished on the basis of consistent species-specific molecular signatures in both mitochondrial and nuclear markers, whereas morphometrical analyses proved to be less reliable for species determination than previously thought...

Unique hybrid nanostructure, which consists of multi-wall carbon nanotube (MWCNT) stems and MoS2 nanosheet (NS) leaves, are prepared by a hydrothermal method. The fabricated material can be potentially used as an electrocatalyst for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). To our knowledge, as the reaction medium, water is firstly utilized to the synthesis of the 1T phase MoS2 NSs which uniformly grow on the carbon-based materials. As a result, a nanohybrid catalyst with excellent HER electrocatalytic properties, which included an onset potential of as low as 50 mV, a Tafel slope of 43 mV dec(-1), and remarkable cycling stability, is produced...

Nitric oxide (NO) has been known to promote physiological angiogenesis to treat peripheral arterial diseases (PAD) by increasing the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) level in endothelial cells (ECs) and preventing platelet adherence and leukocyte chemotaxis. However, the ongoing ischemic event during peripheral ischemia produces superoxide and diminishes the NO bioavailability by forming toxic peroxynitrite anion. Here we disclose an efficacious hybrid molecule 4-(5-Amino-1,2,3-oxadiazol-3-yl)-2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-1-piperidinol (SA-2) containing both antioxidant and NO donor functionalities that provide a therapeutic level of NO necessary to promote angiogenesis and to protect ECs against hydrogen peroxide-induced oxidative stress...

REVIEW
Anca Giorgiana Grigoras
The polymer-lipid systems successfully have been applied for loading and controlled release of insulin. These hybrid systems used the advantages of both components: enhancing of muchoadesivity and lipophilicity, respectively. Even that few polymers, but a large number of lipids were combined by different methods it is still an open field to obtain pharmaceutical formulations suitable for insulin delivery, especially by oral route. Considering that the researchers are continuously interested to find and test new materials for insulin delivery, the lipid systems (liposomes, nanoparticles, microparticles) based on natural (chitosan, lectin, ε-poly-L-lysine) or synthetic (poly(lactide-co-glycolide), poly(allylamine)) polymers were reviewed in this paper...

Bacillus thuringiensis is a bacterium known for its bioinsecticide properties. Besides Cry toxins, B. thuringiensis also produces cytolytic proteins (Cyt) that show toxicity against dipteran insect larvae. Two different models have been proposed in order to explain the interaction mechanism of the cytolytic protein Cyt2Aa2 on lipid membranes: pore-forming and detergent-like action. Here we report on the interaction of Cyt2Aa2 with lipid/cholesterol bilayers at early stage as a function of protein concentration...

Innovative drug delivery technologies based on smart hydrogels for localized on-demand drug delivery had aroused great interest. To acquire smart UV-crosslinkable chitosan hydrogel for NIR-triggered localized on-demanded drug release, a novel UV-crosslinkable and thermo-responsive chitosan was first designed and synthesized by grafting with poly N-isopropylacrylamide, acetylation of methacryloyl groups and embedding with photothermal carbon. The UV-crosslinkable unit (methacryloyl groups) endowed chitosan with gelation via UV irradiation...

With the increasing demand of environmental monitoring for toxic and odorous ammonia gas it is desired to develop specific green, cost-effective and in situ passive colorimetric alternatives to current complex instrumentations. In this work, we designed an ammonia gas sensor based on cholesteric liquid crystal films of copper(II)-doped cellulose nanocrystals (CNCCu(II)) whose structure, optical and sensing properties were investigated. The hybrid films using the low doping Cu(II) as a color-tuning agent inherited the chiral nematic signature and optical activity of CNCs, suggesting a strong chelation between copper ions and negatively charged CNCs...

Three-dimensional xanthan gum (XG)/graphene oxide (GO) hybrid aerogels were fabricated by ice crystal templating without using chemical modifiers. The hybrid aerogels were prepared by the stirring of xanthan gum-graphene oxide hybrid solution, followed by freezing at low temperature and finally by freeze-drying. The whole preparation could be completed within 12h without producing any contamination and thus considered a fast, simple, economical, and green method for aerogel fabrication. XG/GO hybrid aerogels possessed different hierarchical pore structures because of various freezing temperatures...

This work was to investigate the influence of time on the properties of cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) during the ammonium persulfate (APS) oxidation of hybrid poplar residues (HPHL). The CNCs at the different times were characterized by different techniques. The results showed that CNCs were thinned and shortened with increased oxidation time, and their yield, crystallinity index and zeta potential increased, however, these properties stayed constant after the APS oxidation for 16h. At this time, the CNC yield was more than 50%, and the CNCs had a zeta potential of -48...

We evaluated the capacity of chitosan nanofiber (CNF)- and poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)-based hydrogel/calcium phosphate hybrid (CNF-PEG/CaP) composites to act as scaffolding materials. CNF-PEG/CaP composites were fabricated by mineralization of CNF-PEG hydrogels using an alternate soaking method. The amount of CaP mineralized on CNF-PEG hydrogels increased as the ratio of CNF in the CNF-PEG hydrogel increased. Young's modulus of CNF-PEG/CaP hydrogels was enhanced by increase in CNF ratio. It was further confirmed that osteoblasts embedded on the CNF-PEG/CaP composites were viable after incubation for 5days and firmly attached to the CaP porous layer, forming an extensive cell-scaffold leading to cell-cell interactions...
