Juvenile hormone (JH) biosynthesis is inhibited under short-day conditions in the brown-winged green bug Plautia stali. We investigated allatostatic molecules in the brain of P. stali. Methanol brain extracts strongly inhibited JH biosynthesis. The allatostatic activities of the brain extracts were heat stable but gently suppressed by trypsin treatment, indicating that the allatostatic molecules were peptides. Grybi-MIP1, found in Gryllus bimaculatus as an allatostatic molecule, inhibited JH biosynthesis in P...

This article contains data on the Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopy (LSCM) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) images related to multi-scaled self-assemblies resulting from 'green' cationic glycine betaine surfactant/anionic kappa-carrageenan interactions. These data gave clear evidence of the evolution of the micron-, nano-sized structures obtained at two surfactant/polymer molar ratios (3.5 and 0.8) and after the dilution of the aqueous dispersions with factors of 5 and 10 times. This data article is related to the research article entitled, "Monitoring the architecture of anionic ĸ-carrageenan/cationic glycine betaine amide surfactant assemblies by dilution: A multiscale approach" (Gaillard et al...

OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the feasibility and the tolerance of repeated fluorescent indocyanine green angiography in free flap monitoring, and determined the intraoperative predictive values of flap vitality. BACKGROUND: The free flap failure rate has been significantly reduced, but free flap loss still occurs and remains a costly disaster. Repeated clinical examinations are commonly used for flap monitoring, but they can be unreliable because of their subjectivity...

BACKGROUND: Photo-activated disinfection (PAD) is a novel treatment approach, in which bacteria in the root canal system may be exposed to sub-lethal doses of PAD. Such exposure can affect bacterial survival and virulence features, such as biofilm formation ability. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of sub-lethal doses of PAD (sPAD) using indocyanine green (ICG) on load and biofilm formation ability of Porphyromonas gingivalis as an anaerobic bacterium associated with endodontic infection...

In humans, short-term supplementation with nitrate is hypotensive and inhibits platelet aggregation via an nitric oxide (NO)-dependent mechanism. In the present work, we analyzed whether short-term treatment with nitrate induces antithrombotic effects in rats and mice. Arterial thrombosis was evoked electrically in a rat model in which renovascular hypertension was induced by partial ligation of the left renal artery. In mice expressing green fluorescent protein, laser-induced thrombosis was analyzed intravitally by using confocal microscope...

Photoswitchable fluorophores are promising in single-molecule optical devices and super-resolution fluorescence imaging, especially in single-molecule photo-activated localization microscopy (PALM) or stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM). However, the scarcity of current photoswitchable fluorophores stimulates researchers to develop complicated optical systems and processing software, in accordance with the limited photoswitchable fluorescent proteins and organic fluorophores. Previous efforts to develop synthetic photoswitchable fluorophores have exhibited their promising potential in super-resolution fluorescence imaging...

To improve patient outcome and decrease overall health-care costs, highly sensitive and precise detection of a tumor is required for its accurate diagnosis and efficient therapy; however, this remains a challenge when using conventional single mode imaging. Here, we successfully designed a near-infrared ray (NIR)-response photothermal therapy (PTT) platform (Au@MSNs-ICG) for the location, diagnosis, and NIR/computer tomography (CT) bimodal imaging-guided PTT of tumor tissues, using gold (Au) nanospheres coated with indocyanine green (ICG)-loaded mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs), which would have high sensitivity and precision...

BACKGROUND: Photodynamic therapy (PDT) and photothermal therapy (PTT) are two known optical remedies of cancer. PTT can be combined with other therapies. One of the limitations of optical therapies is the penetration of light into biological tissues, which reduces its effectiveness due to usage of photosensitizers and PTT agents, which are absorbed in the NIR region that provides the maximum penetration. For instance, Indocyanine green (ICG) serves as a photosensitizer and Gold nanostructures as agents for PTT...

We have reported here, for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, a high nonlinear refractive index (n2e) of a natural pigment extracted from Hibiscus rosa-sinensis leaves by using spatial self-phase modulation technique (SSPM) with a low power CW He-Ne laser radiation at 632.8nm. It is found by UV-Vis absorption spectroscopic analysis that chlrophyll-a, chlrophyll-b and carotenoid are present in the pigment extract with 56%, 25% and 19%, respectively. The photoluminescence (PL) emission characteristics of the extracted samples have also been measured at room temperature as well as in the temperature range of 283-333K to investigate the effect of temperature on luminescent properties of the sample...

Hybrid metal-halide perovskites have potential as cost-effective gain media for laser technology because of their superior optoelectronic properties. Although lead-halide perovskites have been most widely studied to date, tin-based perovskites have been proposed as a less toxic alternative. In this Letter, we show that amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) in formamidinium tin triiodide (FASnI3) thin films is supported by an observed radiative monomolecular charge recombination pathway deriving from its unintentional doping...

Yb(3+)/Er(3+) co-doped La2.4Mo1.6O8 up-conversion phosphors with thermometric properties were synthesized by a conventional solid-state reaction. The optimal synthesis conditions for the pure phase have been determined by varying the types and contents of fluxes. Structural studies verify that all samples retain the same face-centered cubic structure, and the morphology via SEM observation also verified the cubic-like crystal growth behaviour. Yb(3+)/Er(3+) co-doped La2.4Mo1.6O8 phosphors mainly emit green emission peaks, ascribed to the emission from the excited states (2)H11/2 and (4)S3/2 to the ground state (4)I15/2 of Er(3+) ion, and the weak red emission from the excited state (4)F9/2 to the ground state (4)I15/2 of Er(3+) ion when they are excited by 980 nm laser diodes...

This paper aims to introduce small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) as a promising technique for measuring size and size distribution of TiO2 nanoparticles. In this manuscript, pulsed laser ablation in liquids (PLAL) has been demonstrated as a quick and simple technique for synthesizing TiO2 nanoparticles directly into deionized water as a suspension from titanium targets. Spherical TiO2 nanoparticles with diameters in the range 4-35 nm were observed with transmission electron microscopy (TEM). X-ray diffraction (XRD) showed highly crystalline nanoparticles that comprised of two main photoactive phases of TiO2: anatase and rutile...

Temperature sensing performance of Er(3+)/Yb(3+) doped CaMoO4 phosphor prepared via polyol method is reported herein. The X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and field emission scanning electron microscopy are done to confirm the phase, structure and purity of the synthesized phosphor. The infrared to green upconversion emission is investigated using 980nm diode laser excitation along with its dependence on input pump power and external temperature. The temperature dependent fluorescence intensity ratio of two upconversion emission bands assigned to (2)H11/2→(4)I15/2 (530nm) and (4)S3/2→(4)I15/2 (552nm) transitions has shown two distinct slopes in the studied temperature range - 300 to 760K and therefore, dual nature of temperature sensitivity is observed in this phosphor...

Photodynamic therapy has emerged as a promising strategy for cancer treatment. To ensure the efficient delivery of a photosensitizer to tumor for anticancer effect, a safe and tumor-specific delivery system is highly desirable. Herein, we introduce a novel biomimetic nanoparticle named rHDL/ICG (rHDL/I), by loading amphiphilic near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent dye indocyanine green (ICG) into reconstituted high density lipoproteins (rHDL). In this system, rHDL can mediate photoprotection effect and receptor-guided tumor-targeting transportation of cargos into cells...

Organic-inorganic lead perovskite materials show impressive performance in photovoltaics, photodetectors, light-emitting diodes, lasers, sensors, medical imaging devices, and other applications. Although organic-inorganic lead perovskites have shown good performance in numerous fields, they contain toxic Pb, which is expected to cause environmental pollution in future large-scale applications. Thus, the photoelectric properties of Pb-free organic-inorganic perovskite materials should be developed and studied...

In this work, highly luminescent carbon dots (CDs) were synthesized by the hydrothermal method at 170 °C for 12 h using pasteurized milk as a carbon source. The prepared CDs exhibited bright blue fluorescence under UV light illumination at 365 nm. The CDs show fluorescence life time of ~4.89 ns at excitation wavelength of 370 nm. The effect of different solvents on the fluorescence property of CDs was also investigated. The lisinopril (Lis)-loaded CDs were fabricated by self-assembly of lisinopril on the surfaces of CDs, which were characterized by UV-visible and FT-IR spectroscopic techniques...
