Nebivolol (NEB) is one of the top-sold prescription drugs belonging to the third generation of beta-blockers. However, so far, occurrence data in the environment are lacking. Within this study NEB has been found for the first time in effluent samples of wastewater treatment plants in Germany with an average concentration of 13 ng L(-1). Its photodegradation behavior in the environment and in technical processes is largely unknown. To fill this gap, three different UV treatment procedures (UV-C at 254 nm, UV-B at 312 nm and UV-A at 365 nm) were investigated in three different matrices: pure water, pure water in presence of the hydroxyl radical (OH) scavenger tert...

Electrochemical activation of peroxydisulfate (PDS) at Ti/Pt anode was systematically investigated for the first time in this work. The synergistic effect produced from the combination of electrolysis and the addition of PDS demonstrates that PDS can be activated at Ti/Pt anode. The selective oxidation towards carbamazepine (CBZ), sulfamethoxazole (SMX), propranolol (PPL), benzoic acid (BA) rather than atrazine (ATZ) and nitrobenzene (NB) was observed in electrochemical activation of PDS process. Moreover, addition of excess methanol or tert-butanol had negligible impact on CBZ (model compound) degradation, demonstrating that neither sulfate radical (SO4(-)) nor hydroxyl radical (HO) was produced in electrochemical activation of PDS process...

The 2007 World Health Organization (WHO) classification of brain tumors did not use molecular abnormalities as diagnostic criteria. Studies have shown that genotyping allows a better prognostic classification of diffuse glioma with improved treatment selection. This has resulted in a major revision of the WHO classification, which is now for adult diffuse glioma centered around isocitrate dehydrogenase (IDH) and 1p/19q diagnostics. This revised classification is reviewed with a focus on adult brain tumors, and includes a recommendation of genes of which routine testing is clinically useful...

Genome-wide association studies in European and Asian populations have consistently identified chromosome 5p15.33 as a lung cancer susceptibility region. To investigate further the genetic architecture of common variants in this region, we conducted a two-stage fine-mapping analysis discovered by targeted resequencing of 200 cases and 300 controls individually, and validated in multiethnic lung cancer GWASs with 12,843 cases and 12,639 controls. Two independent variants were identified in approximate conditional analysis with GCTA and consistently validated in lung cancer GWASs in both Asian and European populations...

Novel elongated and shortened derivatives of the peptidomimetic furin inhibitor phenylacteyl-Arg-Val-Arg-4-amidinobenzylamide were synthesized. The most potent compounds, e.g., Nα(carbamidoyl)Arg-Arg-Val-Arg-4-amidinobenzylamide (Ki = 6.2 pM), contain additional basic residues at the N-terminus and inhibit furin in the low picomolar range. Furthermore, to decrease the molecular weight of this inhibitor type, compounds lacking the P5-moiety were prepared. The best inhibitors of this series, 5-(guanidino)-valeroyl-Val-Arg-4-amidinobenzylamide and its P3 tert...

Amine transaminase (ATA) catalysing stereoselective amination of prochiral ketones is an attractive alternative to transition metal catalysis. As wild-type ATAs accept only non-sterically hindered ketones, efforts to widen the substrate scope to more challenging targets are of general interest. We recently designed ATAs to accept aromatic and thus planar bulky amines, via a sequenced based motif that supports the identification of novel enzymes. However, these variants were not active against 2,2-dimethyl-1-phenyl-propan-1-one, which carries a spatially bulky tert-butyl substituent adjacent to the carbonyl function...

Cobalt porphyrin catalysed intramolecular ring-closing C-H bond amination enables direct synthesis of various N-heterocycles from aliphatic azides. Pyrrolidines, oxazolidines imidazolidines, isoindolines and tetrahydroisoquinoline can be obtained in good to excellent yields in a single reaction step with an air and moisture stable catalyst. Kinetic studies of the reaction in combination with DFT calculations reveal a metallo-radical-type mechanism involving rate limiting azide activation to form the key cobalt(III)-nitrene radical intermediate...

The promyelocytic leukemia (PML) protein is an essential component of PML nuclear bodies (PML NBs) frequently lost in cancer. PML NBs coordinate chromosomal regions via modification of nuclear proteins that in turn may regulate genes in the vicinity of these bodies. However, few PML NB-associated genes have been identified. PML and PML NBs can also regulate mTOR and cell fate decisions in response to cellular stresses. We now demonstrate that PML depletion in U2OS cells or TERT-immortalized normal human diploid fibroblasts results in decreased expression of the mTOR inhibitor DDIT4 (REDD1)...

Hypomorphic germline variants in TERT, the gene encoding the reverse transcriptase component of the human telomerase complex, occur with a frequency of 3-5% in acute myeloid leukemia. We analyzed the clinical and prognostic impact of the most common TERT A1062T variant in younger patients with acute myeloid leukemia intensively treated within two prospective multicenter trials. Four hundred and twenty patients (age 17-60 years) were analyzed for the TERT A1062T variant by direct sequencing. Fifteen patients (3...

The cellular conditions required to establish induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), such as the number of reprogramming factors and/or promoter selection, differ among species. The establishment of iPSCs derived from cells of previously unstudied species therefore requires the extensive optimization of programming conditions, including promoter selection and the optimal number of reprogramming factors, through a trial-and-error approach. While the four Yamanaka factors Oct3/4, Sox2, Klf4, and c-Myc are sufficient for iPSC establishment in mice, we reported previously that six reprogramming factors were necessary for the creation of iPSCs from primary prairie vole-derived cells...

Pesticides belonging to pyrethroid group are widely used in agricultural fields to check pest infestation in different crops for enhanced food production. In spite of beneficial effects, non-judicious use of pesticides imposes harmful effect on human health as their residues reach different food materials and ground water via leaching, percolation and bioaccumulation. Looking into the potential of microbial degradation of toxic compounds under natural environment, a cypermethrin-degrading Bacillus sp. was isolated from pesticide-contaminated soil of a rice field of Distt...

Amide-based ligands (H2L(1-6)) with assorted functional groups appended to them have been used for the synthesis of dicopper(ii) complexes 1-6 having a Cu(μ-OH)Cu core. The crystal structures of 1-6 show that while every Cu(ii) ion is ligated within the N3 pincer cavity of a potentially multidentate ligand, two Cu(ii) centers are bridged by a hydroxide group. Notably, the Cu(μ-OH)Cu core is encased within the secondary coordination sphere intricately created by the appended groups. While complexes 1 and 2 exhibit the presence of an H-bond acceptor in the proximity of the Cu(μ-OH)Cu core, complexes 3 and 4 display the occurrence of both the H-bond donor as well as H-bond acceptor groups in the vicinity of the Cu(μ-OH)Cu core...

Sterically hindered, in situ generated 1,3,4-substituted 1,2,3-triazol-5-ylidene mesoionic carbenes (MICs) were employed to stabilize a number of aryl- and heteroaryldihaloboranes, as well as the first MIC-supported diborane. Reduction of borane adducts of the 1-(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)-3-methyl-4-tert-butyl-1,2,3-triazol-5-ylidene ligand with KC8 in non-coordinating solvents led to intramolecular C-H- and, C-C-activation at an isopropyl residue of the supporting ligand. DFT calculations showed that each of these activation reactions proceed via a different isomer of a borylene intermediate...

Local drug delivery of paclitaxel is becoming ever more prevalent. As complex drug/excipient combinations are being developed and tested, new high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS) techniques capable of quantifying paclitaxel from such formulations are needed. Here a method for quantifying paclitaxel from aqueous, protein and oil containing samples was developed and validated. Keratin, derived from human hair, is the protein component/paclitaxel excipient in the development and validation of said method...

Telomerase is a unique reverse transcriptase that replicates the telomeric DNA at most eukaryotic chromosomal ends. The telomerase consists of the catalytic protein subunit TERT and the RNA component TR that provides the template for telomeric DNA synthesis. In vitro reconstitution of telomerase core components in large quantity is the prerequisite to studying the catalytic mechanisms of telomerase at the structural level; however, large-scale preparation of recombinant telomerase, especially that of higher eukaryotes, has been a big challenge for a long time...

Telomeres are specialized nucleoprotein structures located at eukaryotic chromosomal termini, which are required for chromosome stability and are maintained by a reverse transcriptase named telomerase. Budding yeast has served as an extremely useful model system for analyzing telomere maintenance because the organism offers a wide range of genetic and biochemical tools. Several milestones in telomerase research have been reached through investigation of the yeast system. For example, the consequence of telomerase loss was first characterized in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae...

Mechanotransduction is important for mesenchymal regeneration and differentiation. Exaggerated high or very low impact yields pathological outcome resulting in fracture or tissue atrophy. Pathological strain in animal models was described but tools to dissect the respective stimuli and downstream pathways are limited. We expand the analytical tools to describe DNA strain response elements in a reporter gene approach. Deletion constructs of the human cysteine-rich protein 61 (CYR61) promoter were cloned into luciferase vectors and stably transfected into human telomerase-immortalized mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC-TERT)...
