Older lesbians face the triple jeopardy of ageism, sexism, and heterosexism, and their experiences are largely invisible. This qualitative, exploratory study examines the formal and informal caregiving experiences of 20 lesbians, 65 and older, who had utilized home care services due to acute illness or chronic disabilities. Half of those not partnered reported some level of isolation from support networks. Nearly all study participants eventually found home care workers with whom they were satisfied and even quite connected...

Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a type of breast cancer where the tumor cells are negative for the estrogen, progesterone and human epidermal growth factor 2 receptors. To date, expression profiling of microRNA (miRNA/miR) and mRNA sequences have been widely applied for the diagnosis of TNBC. In the present study, an integrated analysis of miRNA‑mRNA profiling arrays was performed. A total of five dysregulated miRNAs in patients with TNBC were identified, including upregulated miR‑558 expression and downregulated miR‑320d‑1, miR‑548v, miR‑99a and miR‑21 expression...

Porphyrin tapes possessing meso-meso β-β β-β triple direct linkages have been targets of extensive studies because of their fully conjugated characteristic π-electronic networks. In this paper, we report porphyrin arch-tapes that bear additional carbonyl group(s) or methylene group(s) inserted between one of the β-β linkage(s) of the porphyrin tapes. The carbonyl-inserted porphyrin arch-tapes were efficiently synthesized by double fusion reactions of β-to-β carbonyl-bridged porphyrin oligomers with DDQ and Sc(OTf)3, and were converted to the methylene-bridged porphyrin arch-tapes via Luche reduction with NaBH4 and CeCl3 followed by ionic hydrogenation with HBF4·OEt2 and BH3·NEt3...

Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is characterized by an aggressive biological behavior in the absence of a specific target agent. Nicotinamide has recently been proven to be a novel therapeutic agent for skin tumors in an ONTRAC trial. We performed combinatory transcriptomic and in-depth proteomic analyses to characterize the network of molecular interactions in TNBC cells treated with nicotinamide. The multi-omic profiles revealed that nicotinamide drives significant functional alterations related to major cellular pathways, including the cell cycle, DNA replication, apoptosis and DNA damage repair...

AIMS: There is good evidence that the tumor microenvironment plays an important role in cancer metastasis and progression. Our previous studies have shown that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) participates in the process of metastasis and in the migration of cancer cells. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of BDNF on the tumor cell microenvironment, namely, the cancer cell-endothelial cell interaction of TNBC cells. METHODS: We conducted oligoneucleotide microarray analysis of potential biomarkers that are able to differentiate recurrent TNBC from non-recurrent TNBC...

Producing advanced quantum states of light is a priority in quantum information technologies. In this context, experimental realizations of multipartite photon states would enable improved tests of the foundations of quantum mechanics as well as implementations of complex quantum optical networks and protocols. It is favourable to directly generate these states using solid state systems, for simpler handling and the promise of reversible transfer of quantum information between stationary and flying qubits. Here we use the ground states of two optically active coupled quantum dots to directly produce photon triplets...

Based on two fluoro-substituted phenylacetate isomers, o-fluorophenylacetic acid (o-Hfpa) and p-fluorophenylacetic acid (p-Hfpa), two new Cu(ii)-azido compounds, [Cu(o-fpa)(N3)(C2H5OH)]n (1) and [Cu(p-fpa)(N3)(C2H5OH)]n (2), have been prepared, and structurally and magnetically characterized. Single-crystal structure analyses indicate that compounds 1 and 2 consist of 1D chain-like coordination networks in which adjacent copper cations are linked by the alternating triple-bridges of μ-1,1-azido, syn,syn-carboxylate and μ2-ethanol...

Use and abuse of prescription opioids and concomitant increase in Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS), a condition that may lead to protracted pharmacological treatment in more than 60% of infants, has tripled since 2000. This study assessed neurobehavioral development using the NICU Network Neurobehavioral Scale in 6-week old infants with prenatal methadone exposure who did (NAS+; n = 23) or did not (NAS-; n = 16) require pharmacological treatment for NAS severity determined by Finnegan Scale. An unexposed, demographically similar group of infants matched for age served as comparison (COMP; n = 21)...

Gelatin and chitosan were mixed at different mass ratios in solution forms, and the rheological properties of these film-forming solutions, upon cooling, were studied. The results indicate that the significant interactions between gelatin and chitosan promote the formation of multiple complexes, reflected by an increase in the storage modulus of gelatin solution. Furthermore, these molecular interactions hinder the formation of gelatin networks, consequently decreasing the storage modulus of polymer gels. Both hydrogen bonds and electrostatic interactions are formed between gelatin and chitosan, as evidenced by the shift of the amide-II bands of polymers...

Moisture or water has the advantages of being green, inexpensive, and moderate. However, it is challenging to endow water-induced shape memory property and self-healing capability to one single polymer because of the conflicting structural requirement of the two types of materials. In this study, this problem is solved through introducing two kinds of supramolecular interactions into semi-interpenetrating polymer networks (semi-IPNs). The hydrogen bonds function as water-sensitive switches, making the materials show moisture-induced shape memory effect...

Breast cancer is the leading cause of women death. Heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) and Histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6) are promising anti-cancer drug targets. However, it's still unclear the applicability of anti-HSP90 and anti-HDAC6 strategies in precision treatment of breast cancer. In current study, we found that triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) cells, compared to T47D, an ERα+ breast cancer cell line, exhibited 7~40 times lower IC50 values, stronger cell cycle perturbation, increased cell apoptosis and stronger inhibition of cell migration upon 17-DMAG treatment, while T47D, compared to TNBC cells, expressed higher HDAC6 and showed stronger anti-cancer response upon treatment of Tubacin...

Mammalian TRICs function as K(+)-permeable cation channels that provide counter ions for Ca(2+) handling in intracellular stores. Here we describe the structures of two prokaryotic homologues, archaeal SaTRIC and bacterial CpTRIC, showing that TRIC channels are symmetrical trimers with transmembrane pores through each protomer. Each pore holds a string of water molecules centred at kinked helices in two inverted-repeat triple-helix bundles (THBs). The pores are locked in a closed state by a hydrogen bond network at the C terminus of the THBs, which is lost when the pores assume an open conformation...

Rational therapeutic approaches based on synthetic lethality may improve cancer management. Based on a high-throughput drug screen, we provide preclinical proof of concept that targeting the mitochondrial Hsp90 chaperone network (mtHsp90) and inhibition of Bcl-2, Bcl-xL and Mcl-1 is sufficient to elicit synthetic lethality in tumors recalcitrant to therapy. Our analyses focused on BH3 mimetics that are broad acting (ABT263 and Obatoclax) or selective (ABT199, WEHI-539 and A1210477), along with the established mitochondrial matrix chaperone inhibitor Gamitrinib-TPP...

Double-stranded DNA is able to form triple-helical structures by accommodating a third nucleotide strand. A nucleic acid triplex occurs according to Hoogsteen rules that predict the stability and affinity of the third strand bound to the Watson-Crick duplex. The "triplex-forming oligonucleotide" (TFO) can be a short sequence of RNA that binds to the major groove of the targeted duplex only when this duplex presents a sequence of purine or pyrimidine bases in one of the DNA strands. Many nuclear proteins are known to bind triplex DNA or DNA:RNA, but their biological functions are unexplored...

The (1)H NMR spectroscopy is used to study the kinetics of gelation in the aqueous mixtures of κ-carrageenan with gelatin. The time dependence of NMR signals intensities shows that the kinetics of gel formation consists of classical 'fast' (rate constant k≈6h(-1)) and 'slow' (k≈1h(-1)) periods, corresponding to a coil→helix transition and subsequent aggregation of helices. Upon increase of the κ-carrageenan/gelatin (w/w) ratio Z the rate of the fast process slows down by a factor of 1.6-2.4. Further analysis was done by studying the dependence of spin-spin relaxation times of protons of gelatin on Z in the aqueous phase...

Nutrient signalling integrates and coordinates gene expression, metabolism and growth. However, its primary molecular mechanisms remain incompletely understood in plants and animals. Here we report unique Ca(2+) signalling triggered by nitrate with live imaging of an ultrasensitive biosensor in Arabidopsis leaves and roots. A nitrate-sensitized and targeted functional genomic screen identifies subgroup III Ca(2+)-sensor protein kinases (CPKs) as master regulators that orchestrate primary nitrate responses. A chemical switch with the engineered mutant CPK10(M141G) circumvents embryo lethality and enables conditional analyses of cpk10 cpk30 cpk32 triple mutants to define comprehensive nitrate-associated regulatory and developmental programs...

The dielectric relaxation of hydrated collagen powders was studied over a wide temperature and frequency range. We revealed two mechanisms of dielectric relaxation in hydration water that are driven by the migration of ionic and orientation defects. At high water fractions in powders (h > 0.2), the hydration shell around the collagen triple helixes presents a spatial H-bonded network consisting of structural water bridges and cleft water channels. These two water phases provide the long-range paths for proton hopping and orientation defect migration...

Glycerol is one of the additives which stabilize collagen, as well as globular proteins, against thermally induced denaturation --an effect explained by preferential hydration, i.e. by the formation, in water/glycerol solvents, of a hydration layer whose entropic cost favors the more compact triple-helix native structure against the denatured one, gelatin. Quenching gelatin solutions promotes renaturation which, however, remains incomplete, as the formation of a gel network gives rise to growing topological constraints...
