Multishelled hollow structured transition metal oxides (TMOs) are highly potential materials for high energy density energy storage due to their high volumetric energy density, reduced aggregation of nanosized subunits, and excellent capacity and durability. However, traditional synthetic methods of TMOs generally require complicated steps and lack compositional/morphological adjustability. Herein, a general and straightforward strategy is developed to synthesize multishelled porous hollow microspheres, which is constituted of nanosize primary TMO particles, using metal acetate polysaccharide microspheres as the precursor...

Caterpillar fungi have numerous pharmacological and therapeutic applications in traditional medicine, due to a variety of active chemical constituents, such as cordycepin and adenosine. It is imperative to discover new resource for artificial cultivation and biometabolite production since the traditional natural species are endangered. In this study, a new strain HACM 001 was isolated and identified as Ophiocordyceps xuefengensis by rDNA-ITS sequencing. This strain showed the potential of artificial infection to caterpillar larvae leading to mummification, as well as fermentation mycelia in liquid culture and cultivation stromata in solid medium...

Isomers β-asarone and α-asarone have recently been demonstrated to have differential pharmacological activities. Here, we report an LC-MS/MS method developed using acetonitrile to extract two isomeric phenylpropenes from rat plasma. Separation was achieved using a XDB-C18 column (100 × 2.1 mm; i.d., 1.8 μm) with a mobile phase of methanol-0.1% formic acid (55:45, v/v) at a flow rate of 0.3 mL/min. Calibration curves ranging from 5.20 to 2080 ng/mL for β-asarone and from 3.68 to 1470 ng/mL for α-asarone were linear (r(2)  ≥ 0...

Hischsprung disease (HSCR) is an intestinal disorder with strong genetic components. RET was considered as the strongest contributor. Multiple single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) were demonstrated as associated with HSCR in different populations. However, whether the associations of reported SNPs derived from one causal variants or congregations of multiple variants were still not clear. In this study, we successfully genotyped 16 SNPs in RET with a largest case-control study to date, totaling 1470 HSCR and 1473 control subjects in South Chinese population...
