Advanced age portends a poorer prognosis in FSGS. To understand the impact of age on glomerular podocytes and parietal epithelial cells (PECs), experimental FSGS was induced in 3m-old mice (20-year old human age) and 27m-old mice (78-year old human age) by abruptly depleting podocytes with a cytopathic anti-podocyte antibody. Despite similar binding of the disease-inducing antibody, podocyte density was lower in aged FSGS mice compared to young FSGS mice. Activated PEC density was higher in aged versus young FSGS mice, as was the percentage of total activated PECs...

There is a potential for silver nanowires (AgNWs) to be inhaled but there is little information on their health effects and their chemical transformation inside the lungs in vivo. We studied the effects of short (S-AgNWs; 1.5µm) and long (L-AgNWs; 10 µm) nanowires instilled into the lungs of Sprague-Dawley rats. S- and L-AgNWs were phagocytosed and degraded by macrophages; there was no frustrated phagocytosis. Interestingly, both AgNWs were internalized in alveolar Type II epithelial cells (ATII), with precipitation of Ag2S on their surface as secondary Ag2S nanoparticles...

Despite its synthetic potential, intramolecular acylation by the Minisci reaction remains unexplored. The development of a new intramolecular Minisci acylation under silver-free neutral conditions providing access to azafluorenones and fluorenones is described. Distinct from the current literature known approaches for Minisci acylation, the report described herein features a method that: (a) avoids the use of silver that is invariably used in Minisci acylation, (b) does not require any acidic conditions for the activation of pyridines, and...

Spontaneous symmetry breaking is a concept of fundamental importance in many areas of physics, underpinning such diverse phenomena as ferromagnetism, superconductivity, superfluidity and the Higgs mechanism. Here we demonstrate nonreciprocity and spontaneous symmetry breaking between counter-propagating light in dielectric microresonators. The symmetry breaking corresponds to a resonance frequency splitting that allows only one of two counter-propagating (but otherwise identical) states of light to circulate in the resonator...

Among all organotin compounds , triphenyltin hydroxide (TPhTH) is widely used as fungicide and moluscicide in Brazil. However, the effects of TPhTH on the biochemical parameters of non-target organisms, such as fish, are little known. The aim of the present study is to assess the possible toxic effects of different concentrations of waterborne TPhTH on silver catfish belonging to species Rhamdia quelen. The fish were exposed to two different concentrations of TPhTH (1.08 and 1.70 µg/L as Sn) for 15 days and then compared to the control group (triplicate, n = 3)...

Abiotic and biotic stress can have a detrimental impact on plant growth and productivity. Hence, there is a substantial demand for key factors of stress responses to improve yield stability of crops. Members of the poly(ADP-ribose)polymerase (PARP) protein family, which post-translationally modify (PARylate) nuclear proteins, have been suggested as such universal determinants of plant stress responses. A role under abiotic stress has been inferred from studies in which a genetic or, more commonly, pharmacological inhibition of PARP activity improved the performance of stressed plants...

Several new methods have been used to non-destructively evaluate the mechanical properties of materials and tissues including magnetic resonance elastography (MRE), ultrasound elastography (UE), optical coherence elastography (OCE) and various forms of vibrational analysis. One of the limitations of using these methods is the need to establish a relationship between the modulus measured using each new technique and moduli measured using well-established techniques such as constant rate-of-strain and incremental stress-strain curves...

Currently, the limitations of conventional methods for fabricating metamaterials composed of well-aligned nanoscale inclusions either lack the necessary freedom to tune the structural geometry or are difficult for large-area synthesis. In this Communication, the authors propose a fabrication route to create well-ordered silver nano forest/ceramic composite single-layer or multi-layer vertically stacked structures, as a distinctive approach to make large-area nanoscale metamaterials. To take advantage of direct growth, the authors fabricate single-layer nanocomposite films with a well-defined sub-5 nm interwire gap and an average nanowire diameter of ≈3 nm...

In the present work, a facile and efficient fabrication method has been developed for creating super-hydrophobic coatings of silver-doped TiO2@polycarbonate (TiO2 (Ag)@PC) on the substrates of different materials with photocatalytic self-cleaning performances simply by the "dipping and drying" process. The substrates were first patterned with glue and then deposited with the dopamine-capped TiO2 (Ag)@PC (DA-TiO2 (Ag)@PC) nanocomposites, followed by the further etching with dimethylbenzene. The so prepared super-hydrophobic E-DA-TiO2(Ag)@PC coatings could present the lotus leaf-like porous architectures, high adhesion stability, and especially the visible-light photocatalysis for organic contaminant degradation, thus promising the wide outdoor and indoor applications like water proofing, metal erosion protection, and surface self-cleaning...

Chemical modification of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) with a stabilizing agent, such as poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA), plays an important role in shape-controlled seeded-growth and colloidal stability. However, theoretical aspects of the stabilizing mechanism of PVA are still poorly understood. To gain a better understanding of the role of PVA in water protecting effects for silver nanoparticles, we developed an atomistic model of a AgNP grafted with single-chain PVA of various lengths. Our model, designed for classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, approximates the AgNP as a quasi-spherical silver nanocrystal with 3...

Ligand-protected metal nanoclusters as unique nanomaterials have attracted great attention. The protecting ligands that directly bind on the cluster surfaces are crucial in dictating the structures and properties of the clusters. In contrast to the extensively studied thiolates, alkynyl ligands have been found recently to be important ligands for passivating gold/silver cluster surfaces. In this Frontier article, recent advances in alkynyl-protected metal nanoclusters are overviewed, and the structures, luminescence and catalytic activities are also discussed...
