Black phosphorus intercalation compounds (BPICs) with alkali metals (namely: K and Na) have been synthesized in bulk by solid state as well as vapour phase reactions. By means of a combination of in situ XRD, Raman spectroscopy, and DFT calculations the structural behavior of the BPICs at different intercalation stages has been demonstrated for the first time. Our results provide a glimpse into the very first steps of a new family of intercalation compounds, with a distinct behavior as compared to its graphite analogues (GICs), showing a remarkable structural complexity and a dynamic behavior...

Genomic, transcriptional, and proteomic analyses of brain tumors reveal that subtypes differ in their pathway activity, progression, and response to therapy. We performed an expression profiling of Glioma Initiating Cells (GICs) and comparative analysis between different groups of GICs indicates major variations in gene expression. Hierarchical clustering analysis revealed groups of GICs reflecting their heterogeneity, and among some of the genes as major regulators of mesenchymal phenotype, we identified ABOBEC3G as one of the most discriminating genes in mesenchymal group...

The prognosis of patients suffering from glioblastoma [also referred to as glioblastoma multiforme (GBM)] is dismal despite multimodal therapy. Chemotherapy with temozolomide may suppress tumor growth for a certain period of time (a few months); however, invariable tumor recurrence suggests that glioblastoma initiating cells (GICs) render these tumors persistant. Thus, the understanding of the molecular mechanisms of action of GICs as regards their role in the progression of GBM is important as such knowledge will be helpful in the discovery of novel drug targets, as well as in the design of novel therapeutic strategies for more effective treatment of the disease...

Dry eye disease (DED) is often elicited by graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), an extensive complication of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). To unravel the mechanism of this type of DED, in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM) was used to investigate alterations in the state of the sub-basal nerves, dendritic cells (DCs) and globular immune cells (GICs) in the central cornea and limbal epithelia. In this study, we examined 12 HSCT recipients with GVHD-caused DED and 10 HSCT recipients without GVHD-associated DED and evaluated the clinical parameters in the 2 groups...

Group independent component analysis (GICA) has been successfully applied to study multi-subject functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data, and the group independent component (GIC) represents the commonality of all subjects in the group. However, some studies show that the performance of GICA can be improved by incorporating a priori information, which is not always considered when looking for GICs in existing GICA methods. In this paper, we propose an improved multi-objective optimization-based constrained independent component analysis (CICA) method to take advantage of the temporal a priori information extracted from all subjects in the group by incorporating it into the computational process of GICA for group fMRI data analysis...

In this laboratory study, the microtensile bond strengths (μTBS) of resin-modified glass ionomer cement (RM-GIC) to sound and artificial caries-affected bovine root dentin (ACAD) using three different conditioning agents were evaluated after 24 hours and three months. The fractured interface was examined with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Specimens were created on bovine root dentin that was embedded in epoxy resin. For the ACAD specimens, artificial carious lesions were created. The RM-GIC (Fuji II LC) was applied either directly (no treatment), after application of self conditioner, cavity conditioner, or 17% ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA) applied for 60 seconds, on sound dentin and ACAD, then light cured...
