Faith-based organizations (FBOs) (e.g., churches, mosques, and gurdwaras) can play a vital role in health promotion. The Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health for Asian Americans (REACH FAR) Project is implementing a multi-level and evidence-based health promotion and hypertension (HTN) control program in faith-based organizations serving Asian American (AA) communities (Bangladeshi, Filipino, Korean, Asian Indian) across multiple denominations (Christian, Muslim, and Sikh) in New York/New Jersey (NY/NJ)...

Raman amplification arising from the excitation of a density echelon in plasma could lead to amplifiers that significantly exceed current power limits of conventional laser media. Here we show that 1-100 J pump pulses can amplify picojoule seed pulses to nearly joule level. The extremely high gain also leads to significant amplification of backscattered radiation from "noise", arising from stochastic plasma fluctuations that competes with externally injected seed pulses, which are amplified to similar levels at the highest pump energies...

Cryopreservation causes damage to spermatozoa, and methods minimizing this damage are therefore needed. Although much discussed, seminal plasma removal has become an alternative to improve sperm quality and viability after freezing and has been applied to different species in attempt to obtain good results. The objective of this study was to evaluate semen quality in buffaloes submitted to two methods for seminal plasma removal (filtration and centrifugation). Semen samples were collected from seven Murrah buffalo bulls (Bubalus bubalis) once a week for 8 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Integrin-mediated adhesion is a key process by which cells physically connect their environment, express sensitivity and adaptation through mechanotransduction. A critical step of cell adhesion is the formation of the first bonds which individually generate weak contacts (∼tens pN) but can sustain thousand times higher forces (∼tens nN) when associated. RESULTS: We propose an experimental validation by multiple bond force spectroscopy (MFS) of a stochastic model predicting adhesion reinforcement permitted by non cooperative, multiple bonds on which force is homogeneously distributed (called parallel bond configuration)...

The monoanionic bidentate ligand [(Ph3B)CH(3,5-(CH3)2Pz)2)](-) has been prepared from lithium bis(pyrazolyl)methanide and triphenylborane. This useful new ligand is closely related to the well-established bis(pyrazolyl)borate and bis(pyrazolyl)methane ligands but has key differences to both analogues as well. The ethylene, cis-2-butene, and carbon monoxide adducts [(Ph3B)CH(3,5-(CH3)2Pz)2]Cu(L) (where L = C2H4, cis-CH3HC═CHCH3, and CO) have been prepared from [(Ph3B)CH(3,5-(CH3)2Pz)2)]Li(THF), copper(I) triflate, and the corresponding coligand...

Two three-dimensional (3D) zeolitic open-framework aluminoborates (ABOs) [Zn(ma)(en)2][AlB5O10] (1) and [Zn(ma)(en)2][AlB6O11(OH)] (2) (ma = methylamine, en = ethylenediamine) were successfully made under solvothermal conditions, which represent the first examples using similar metal complex (MC) with mixed amines as the structure-directing agents in ABOs. Notice that the central atom in the MC is coordinated by mixed amines is uncommon. However, they exhibit distinctly different structures: 1 crystallizes in a centrosymmetric [Al(B5O10)]n(2n-) zeolitic framework built by pentaborate (B5O10) clusters and AlO4 tetrahedra, exhibiting a 4-connected cag topology, while 2 contains hexaborate (B6O11(OH)) clusters and AlO4 groups, further alternately joined to form a noncentrosymmetric [AlB6O11(OH)]n(2n-) zeolitic framework with 7-/9-, 8-/10-ring helical channels and large 13-ring channels, showing a dia topology...

In data independent acquisition mass spectrometry (DIA-MS), targeted extraction of peptide signals in silico using mass spectrometry assay libraries is a successful method for the identification and quantification of proteins. Still, it remains unclear if high quality assay libraries with more accurate peptide ion coordinates can improve peptide target identification rates in DIA analysis. In this study, we systematically improved and evaluated the common algorithmic steps for assay library generation and demonstrate that increased assay quality results in substantially higher identification rates of peptide targets from mouse organ protein lysates measured by DIA-MS...

Due to the internationalization of food production and distribution, there has been a significant increase of food fraud in recent years. Food fraud can have serious health implications, and occurs when food manufacturers implement unethical practices such as making false label claims as well as using additives and fillers within their products to increase profitability. This has been a serious concern. Meat adulteration was examined using a well-defined proteogenomic annotation, carefully selected surrogate tryptic peptides and high-resolution mass spectrometry...
