  5. Upconversion emission properties and tunable morphologies of Y6WO12:Yb3+/Er3+ phosphor

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Xue, Bing; Sun, Jiayue

    2014-01-01

    Yb3+/Er3+ co-doped Y6WO12 phosphors are prepared by hydrothermal method and subsequently calcination. According to tuning the EDTA usage, the phosphors present four morphologies (cylinder, short-cylinder, flower-like and triangle shape). It is found that the usage of EDTA play crucial role in the formation of morphology. Based on the DSC-TG curves, the pure Y6WO12 are obtained by annealing the precursors at a wide range of temperatures. After annealing, strong red emissions and weak green emissions are observed under 980 nm excitation, which is different from the uncalcined products (green emissions are stronger than red emissions). Then we studied the changing tendency of the upconversion (UC) luminescence properties of the calcined and uncalcined products. At last, the pumping power on the UC luminescence properties and the level diagram mechanism of Y6WO12:Yb3+/Er3+ phosphor have also been discussed. We think this work may have the guiding function for obtaining different morphologies by adjusting EDTA and provide new channel of changing the green to red ratio in these kinds of host.

    Polycrystalline Ce3+-doped K3YB6O12 (1–14 mol%) phosphors were prepared by facile chemical sol–gel synthesis. The phase formation of the phosphors was confirmed by x-ray powder diffraction (XRD) analysis. The photoluminescence excitation spectra (PLE), emission spectra (PL) and the luminescence decay curves were tested. Under the near-UV light, the phosphors present the emission from blue color to yellowish green due to the allowed 4f –5d transitions of Ce3+ ions. The absolute quantum efficiency (QE) of K3YB6O12:Ce3+ can reach 53% under the excitation of near-UV light. The luminescence thermal quenching of the phosphor was investigated by the temperature-dependent spectra. The crystallographic site of Ce3+ ions in the lattice was identified and discussed on the basis of luminescence characteristics and structural data. There is only one isolated Ce3+ center occupying the Y(II) sites in the lightly doped samples presenting a typical doublet emission profile. While the Ce3+ multi-centers could be created with the enhancement of the doping levels, which could induce the distinct red-shift of the spectra due to the dipole–dipole interactions. The result in this work could be useful for the further investigation of other rare earth ions in this host.

  7. White upconversion emission in Li+/Yb3+/Tm3+/Er3+-doped Gd6MoO12 phosphors

    2013-07-01

    The Yb3+/Er3+/Tm3+-doped Gd6MoO12 phosphors and Li+/Yb3+/Er3+/Tm3+-doped Gd6MoO12 phosphors were synthesized by the high-temperature solid-state method. Under 980 nm laser diode excitation, the Gd6MoO12:Li+/Yb3+/Er3+/Tm3+ phosphors show the white upconversion (UC) emission at the pump power of 200 mW/cm2, which is composed of the blue (1G4→3H6 of Tm3+), green (2H11/2, 4S3/2→4I15/2 of Er3+), and red (4F9/2→4I15/2 of Er3+) UC emissions. The calculated CIE color coordinates of Gd6MoO12:Tm3+/Er3+/Yb3+ phosphors changed from blue area to white area after the Li+ ion doping. Then, the effect of Li+ ions mixing on the emission was analysed. The relative UC mechanisms and properties were also investigated and proposed based on their spectral. The additional mixed Li+ ions enhanced the red and green upconversion emission largely in this phosphor and then formed the white UC emission, which indicated that the Li+ is a promising dopant for tuning white light luminescence in some case.

    Using a three-step laser excitation scheme we have selectively excited the Ba 6p3/2ns(J = 1,2) autoionizing Rydberg states with different polarization configurations. The level energies and widths of Ba 6p3/2ns(J = 1) autoionizing states with n = 9-33 and 6p3/2ns(J = 2) autoionizing states with n = 9-20 are reported, most of which were observed for the first time. Their spectroscopic properties are discussed in detail. The experimental data are in good agreement with the theoretical analysis from the multichannel quantum defect theory.

    We have investigated the importance of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in promoting tumor growth and metastasis. In human primary breast cancers, increased levels of IL-6 were found at the tumor leading edge and positively correlated with advanced stage, suggesting a mechanistic link between tumor cell production of IL-6 and invasion. In support of this hypothesis, we showed that the IL-6/Janus kinase (JAK)/signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (Stat3) pathway drives tumor progression through the stroma and metastatic niche. Overexpression of IL-6 in tumor cell lines promoted myeloid cell recruitment, angiogenesis, and induced metastases. We demonstrated the therapeutic potential of interrupting this pathway with IL-6 receptor blockade or by inhibiting its downstream effectors JAK1/2 or Stat3. These clinically relevant interventions did not inhibit tumor cell proliferation in vitro but had profound effects in vivo on tumor progression, interfering broadly with tumor-supportive stromal functions, including angiogenesis, fibroblast infiltration, and myeloid suppressor cell recruitment in both the tumor and pre-metastatic niche. This study provides the first evidence for IL-6 expression at the leading edge of invasive human breast tumors and demonstrates mechanistically that IL-6/JAK/Stat3 signaling plays a critical and pharmacologically targetable role in orchestrating the composition of the tumor microenvironment that promotes growth, invasion, and metastasis.

    The new Na0.21Nb6Cl10.5O3 oxychloride was synthesized by a solid state route, from NaCl, Nb2O5, NbCl5, and Nb, heated at 680°C for 2 weeks. The structure was determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. It crystallizes in the trigonal system (Roverline3c space group, a=11.5048(1) Å, c=44.9446(7) Å, V=5151.88(10) Å3, Z=12). The structure is built from [(Nb6Cli9Oi3) Oa3Cla3] units, which share their inner and apical oxygens forming pseudolayers with short Nb-Nb intercluster distances (3.399 Å). Along the c axis, these layers are interconnected by apical-apical chlorines. The sodium atoms are randomly distributed in the voids arranged between two adjacent layers, in a deformed chlorine prismatic coordination. The developed formula Na0.21 [(Nb6Cli9Oi-a3/2)Oa-i3/2Cla-a3/2] leads to a number of valence electrons per cluster close to 14. This oxychloride will be compared to CsNb6Cl12O2 which we have previously isolated and which was the first example of a Nb6 oxyhalide involving Oi-a, Oa-i interunit connections.

    Evidence for a 12.59 ms pulsar in Cygnus X-3 is presented on the basis of TeV gamma-ray observations. Evidence for pulsed emission at a phase in the 4.8 hr cycle and with a pulsar period and secular period derivative are compatible with earlier measurements (Chadwick et al., 1985). The conservative overall Rayleigh probability of uniformity of phase for this new result is 1.7 x 10 to the -6th. Data from observations of Cygnus X-3 from 1981 to 1985 are analyzed using a new X-ray ephemeris of the 4.8 hr X-ray cycle. This suggests that Cygnus X-3 is producing sporadic very high energy gamma rays at a fixed time in the 4.8 hr X-ray cycle. 28 refs.

  18. Radar observations at 3.5 and 12.6 cm wavelength of asteroid 433 Eros

    1976-01-01

    A study of the asteroid 433 Eros using 3.5 and 12.6 cm radar waves indicates that the surface is very much rougher than any planetary or lunar surface observed by this method. A surface completely covered with sharp edges, pits, subsurface holes, or embedded chunks with scale sizes on the order of our wavelengths seems to be indicated. A model based on a rough rotating triaxial ellipsoid having radii in the rotation equator of 18.6 and 7.9 km agrees well with our data, although a strong wobble in the apparent center frequency of the spectra as rotation progresses indicates that one side may be more reflective than the other, or more likely, that the projected axis of rotation does not equally divide the projected area.

    2016-02-01

    Eu(2+)-doped Ba3Si6O12N2 phosphors were prepared successfully via a modified solid-state diffusion method. The phosphors were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and photoluminescence measurements. These phosphors were effectively excited at 355 nm and an intense emission peaking in the range 480 nm to 525 nm in the blue region was observed. The optimized dopant concentration was determined to be 1 mol% of Eu(2+) ion. The colour coordinates for phosphor were found to be (0.196, 0.326) in the blue region. This phosphor may find application for near-ultraviolet (NUV) excited lamp phosphors. The thermoluminescence study shows the complex glow curve. Trapping parameters (activation energy and frequency factor) were calculated for individual deconvoluted peaks by Chen's peak shape method, the initial rise method and the whole glow peak method.

    Two new 6-hydroxylated bile acids, 3 beta, 6 alpha, 12 alpha- and 3 beta, 6 beta, 12 alpha-trihydroxy-5 beta-cholanoic acids, were synthesized from deoxycholic acid. In addition, their C-3 epimers, 3 alpha, 6 alpha, 12 alpha- and 3 alpha, 6 beta, 12 alpha-trihydroxy acids, were prepared by a new route. The principal reactions used were 1) 6 beta-hydroxylation of 3-methoxy-3,5-dienes with m-chloroperbenzoic acid in aqueous dioxane; 2) catalytic hydrogenation of the resulting 6 beta-hydroxy-3-oxo-4-enes to the 6 beta-hydroxy-3-oxo-5 beta compounds with palladium on calcium carbonate catalyst in ethanol; and 3) stereoselective reduction of appropriate 3-oxo derivatives with potassium tri-sec-butylborohydride and tert-butylamine-borane complex. The thin-layer chromatographic, gas-liquid chromatographic, and high performance liquid chromatographic mobilities, and 1H- and 13C-nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopic data of the four stereoisomers are presented. With this work all the 6-hydroxylated derivatives of lithocholic, deoxycholic, chenodeoxycholic, ursodeoxycholic, and cholic acids in the 5 beta series are now known and have been synthesized.

    Yb3+, Tm3+ co-doped Gd6MoO12 phosphors with different morphologies are prepared by the hydrothermal method. The dendrites present different morphologies (including hexagonal prisms, spindles, and spheres) after changing the pH value and edetate disodium (EDTA) usage. It is found that each of the two factors plays a crucial role in forming different morphologies. The up-conversion (UC) luminescence is studied. Under 980-nm semiconductor laser excitation, relatively strong blue emission and weak red emission are observed. Finally, the effect of pumping power on the UC luminescence properties and the level diagram mechanism of Gd6MoO12:Yb3+/Tm3+ phosphor are also discussed.

    Chronic inflammation is an important process leading to tumorigenesis. Therefore, targeting and controlling inflammation can be a promising cancer therapy. Inflammation is often caused by a variety of inflammatory cytokine such as the interleukin (IL)-6, a pleiotrophic cytokine known to be involved in the tumorigenesis. In this study, an in vivo hepatic tumorigenesis model of zebrafish was generated to demonstrate a direct consequence of the human IL6 expression causing hepatocarcinogenesis. To do this, an elevated expression of the hIL6 gene was established to specifically target the zebrafish hepatocytes by transgenesis. Interestingly, the elevated hIL6 expression caused the chronic inflammation which results in a massive infiltration of inflammatory cells. This eventually resulted in the generation of various dysplastic lesions such as clear cell, small cell, and large cell changes, and also eosinophilic and basophilic foci of hepatocellular alteration. Hepatocellular carcinoma was then developed in the transgenic zebrafish. Molecular characterization revealed upregulation of the downstream components involved in the IL6-mediated signaling pathways, especially PI3K/Akt and JAK/STAT3 pathways. Further investigation indicated that PI3K was the most reactive to the infiltrated inflammatory cells and dysplasia with large cell change, whereas STAT3 was heavily activated in the region with dysplastic foci, suggesting that the JAK/STAT3 pathway was mainly implicated in the hepatic tumorigenesis in the current model. Our present study provides an in vivo evidence of the relationship between chronic inflammation and tumorigenesis and reinforces the pivotal role of IL6 in the inflammation-associated hepatocarcinogenesis.

Zn6Br12(18-crown-6)2×(Br2)5 (1) is formed instantaneously by the reaction. Even at room temperature, compound 1 releases bromine, which was confirmed by thermogravimetry (TG) and mass spectrometry (MS). The release of Br2 can also be directly followed by the color and density of the title compounds. With controlled conditions (2 weeks, 25 °C, absence of excess Br2) Zn6Br12(18-crown-6)2×(Br2)5 (1) slowly releases bromine with conconcurrent generation of Zn4Br8(18-crown-6)2×(Br2)3 (2) (in ionic liquid) and Zn6Br12(18-crown-6)2×(Br2)2 (3) (in inert oil). All bromine-rich zinc bromides contain voluminous uncharged (e.g., Zn3Br6(18-crown-6), Zn2Br4(18-crown-6)) or ionic (e.g., [Zn2Br3(18-crown-6)](+), [(Zn2Br6)×(Br2)2](2-)) building units with dibromine molecules between the Zn oligomers and partially interconnecting the Zn-containing building units. Due to the structural similarity, the bromine release is possible via crystal-to-crystal transformation with retention of the crystal shape. PMID:27281122

    The structural and light up-conversion (UC) luminescence properties of W6+ substituted Bi3.79Er0.03Yb0.18Ti3-xWxO12 (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.10) ceramics prepared by solid state reaction method have been investigated. X-ray diffraction (XRD) confirms the formation of single phase material with orthorhombic structure. A decrease in the lattice parameters and unit cell volume is observed with increasing W content. Strong UC luminescence at 527, 548 and 662 nm is seen under an excitation of 980 nm for an optimum W content (x = 0.06) and is attributed to the transitions 2H11/2 →4I15/2, 4S3/2 →4I15/2 and 4F9/2 →4I15/2 respectively. The improved UC luminescence is ascribed to the reduced defects such as oxygen vacancies and change in the crystal field around Er3+ ions due to B-site (Ti4+) substitution with W6+ ions. Enhanced UC emission is observed for an optimum content of w6+ in the prepared composition Bi3.79Er0.03Yb0.18Ti3-xWxO12 for x = 0.06.

    The intermolecular interactions between medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) and CHCl3 and CCl4 solvent in CHCl3/cyclo-C6H12 and CCl4/cyclo-C6H12 binary solvent systems have been studied by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). The experimental results showed that there are hydrogen bonding interactions between oxygen atoms of all carbonyl groups in MPA and hydrogen atom of CHCl3 so as to form 1:3 complex of MPA with CHCl3 and produce three new absorption bands at 1728.9-1736.1, 1712.7-1717.4 and 1661.9-1673.8 cm-1, respectively. And, 1:1 complex of MPA with CCl4 is formed in CCl4/cyclo-C6H12 binary solvent as a result of hydrogen bonding interaction between C3 carbonyl group and empty d-orbital in chlorine atom of CCl4 leading to producing new absorption band at 1673.2-1674.2 cm-1. However, all free carbonyl and associated carbonyl stretching vibrations of MPA in CHCl3/cyclo-C6H12 and CCl4/cyclo-C6H12 binary solvent systems shift to lower wavenumbers with the increasing of volume fraction of CHCl3 and CCl4 in binary solvent systems owing to the dipole-dipole interaction and the dipole-induced dipole interaction between MPA and solvents.

    New purinium, adeninium and guaninium fluoroaluminates, [H pur] 2·(AlF 5), [H ade] 3·(AlF 66.5H 2O and [H guan] 3·(Al 3F 12), are synthesized by microwave heating assisted hydrothermal synthesis at 120 °C or 190 °C. The crystallisation is difficult; all crystals of [H pur] 2·(AlF 5) and [H ade] 3·(AlF 66.5H 2O are very small while only a microcrystalline powder of [H guan] 3·(Al 3F 12) is obtained. The structures are determined from crystal ([H pur] 2·(AlF 5) and [H ade] 3·(AlF 66.5H 2O) or powder ([H guan] 3·(Al 3F 12)) X-ray diffraction data. In [H pur] 2·(AlF 5), trans-chains of corner sharing octahedra lie along the c axis of the tetragonal cell ( a = 18.997(2) Å, c = 3.6980(4) Å, P4/ n, Z = 4). In [H ade] 3·(AlF 66.5H 2O, the octahedral AlF 6 units lie in (010) planes with water molecules. In [H guan] 3·(Al 3F 12), trimers of corner sharing octahedra are associated by opposite vertices along the c axis of the trigonal cell ( a = 14.254(1) Å, c = 3.629(1) Å, P3, Z = 1). The purine, adenine and guanine amines are monoprotonated and lie between the preceding chains or layers. Hydrogen bonds between fluoride ions and amine groups of organic cations or, eventually, water molecules ensure the stability of the structures, together with N-H⋯O intermolecular bonds between guaninium cations in [H guan] 3·(Al 3F 12). The N(7)H-amino and N(9)H-amino tautomeric forms of [H ade] + are simultaneously found in [H ade] 3·(AlF 66.5H 2O.

    W(CO){sub 5}(NCMe) has been found to transform vinylthiirane and a series of methyl-substituted vinylthiiranes into a series of 3,6-dihydro-1,2-dithiin compounds. Two equivalents of the vinylthiirane are required, and 1 equiv of a butadiene is formed by the transfer of its sulfur atom to the second vinylthiirane, which is then transformed into the dihydrodithiin. The formation of 3,6-dihydro-1,2-dithiin proceeds at 15 turnovers/h at 25 C using vinylthiirane as the catalyst. The catalyst is long-lived (up to 2,000 turnovers have been obtained without loss of activity) and relatively insensitive to air. Methyl substituents on the vinyl group increase the rate of reaction while methyl substituents on the thiirane ring slow it considerably. The introduction of phosphine ligands to the catalyst also leads to significant increases in the rate of reaction. The dithiin complex W(CO){sub 5}({ovr SSCH{sub 2}CH{double_bond}CHC}H{sub 2}) was isolated from the catalytic reactions and was structurally characterized. The dihydrodithiin is coordinated to the tungsten atom through one of its two sulfur atoms. This product was shown to be a species in the catalytic cycle. A mechanism involving a vinylthiirane intermediate that undergoes spontaneous ring opening, followed by addition of a second vinylthiirane to the terminal carbon of the chain, elimination of 1 equiv of butadiene, and formation of a sulfur-sulfur bond leading to the compound above is proposed. The vinylthiirane intermediate is regenerated by ligand substitution which releases the dihydrodithiin product. 3,6-dihydro1,2-dithiin readily polymerizes when its pure form is exposed to visible light. If the polymerization is interrupted at an early stage, 1,2,7,8-tetrathiacyclododeca-4,10-diene, a dimer, can be isolated. The dimer was obtained in 5.6% yield and was structurally characterized crystallographically.

    We report on new observations of the photoassociation spectroscopy of ultracold cesium molecules using a highly sensitive detection technique and a combined analysis with all observed electronic states. The technique is achieved by directly modulating the frequency of the trapping lasers of a magneto-optical trap. New observations of the Cs{sub 2}0{sub g}{sup −}, 0{sub u}{sup +}, and 1{sub g} states at the asymptotes 6S{sub 1/2} + 6P{sub 1/2} and 6S{sub 1/2} + 6P{sub 3/2} are reported. The spectral range is extended to the red detuning of 112 cm{sup −1} below the 6S{sub 1/2} + 6P{sub 3/2} dissociation limit. Dozens of vibrational levels of the ultracold Cs{sub 2}0{sub g}{sup −}, 0{sub u}{sup +}, and 1{sub g} states are observed for the first time. The available experimental binding energies of these states are analyzed simultaneously in a framework of the generalized LeRoy–Bernstein theory and the almost degenerate perturbation theory by Marinescu and Dalgarno [Phys. Rev. A: At., Mol., Opt. Phys. 52, 311 (1995)]. The unique atomic-related parameter c{sub 3} governing the dispersion forces of all the molecular states is estimated as (10.29 ± 0.05) a.u.

    The title compound, hexapotassium octairon(II,III) dodecaphosphonate, exhibiting a two-dimensional structure, is a new mixed alkali/3d metal phosphite. It crystallizes in the space group R3m, with two crystallographically independent Fe atoms occupying sites of 3m (Fe1) and 3m (Fe2) symmetry. The Fe2 site is fully occupied, whereas the Fe1 site presents an occupancy factor of 0.757 (3). The three independent O atoms, one of which is disordered, are situated on a mirror and all other atoms are located on special positions with 3m symmetry. Layers of formula [Fe3(HPO3)4](2-) are observed in the structure, formed by linear Fe3O12 trimer units, which contain face-sharing FeO6 octahedra interconnected by (HPO3)(2-) phosphite oxoanions. The partial occupancy of the Fe1 site might be described by the formation of two [Fe(HPO3)2](-) layers derived from the [Fe3(HPO3)4](2-) layer when the Fe1 atom is absent. Fe(2+) is localized at the Fe1 and Fe2 sites of the [Fe3(HPO3)4](2-) sheets, whereas Fe(3+) is found at the Fe2 sites of the [Fe(HPO3)2](-) sheets, according to bond-valence calculations. The K(+) cations are located in the interlayer spaces, between the [Fe3(HPO3)4](2-) layers, and between the [Fe3(HPO3)4](2-) and [Fe(HPO3)2](-) layers. PMID:24705046

    We report a single-crystal D2 NMR investigation of the nearly ideal spin S=1/2 kagome lattice ZnCu3(OD)6Cl2. We successfully identify D2 NMR signals originating from the nearest neighbors of Cu2+ defects occupying Zn sites. From the D2 Knight-shift measurements, we demonstrate that weakly interacting Cu2+ spins at these defects cause the large Curie-Weiss enhancement toward T=0 commonly observed in the bulk susceptibility data. We estimate the intrinsic spin susceptibility of the kagome planes by subtracting defect contributions, and explore several scenarios.

    A series of substituted 2,3,5,6-tetraarylbenzo(l,2-b:5,4-b')difurans 1 was synthesized. This synthesis is based upon the photocyclization of 2,5-dibenzoylresorcinol dibenzyl ethers to the corresponding tetrahydrobenzo(1,2-b:5,4-b')difurans. Treatment of the photoproducts with methanesulfonyl chloride in pyridine afforded 1 in overall yields ranging from 30-72%. A number of these compounds have high fluorescence quantum yields (of phi(sub f) = 0.76-0.90), and their fluorescence spectra exhibit large solvatochromic shifts. These compounds may be suitable for use as fluorescent probes.

    The employment of linear di-, tri-, and tetra-ammoniums has generated a hierarchy in the binodal (4{sup 12}⋅6{sup 3})(4{sup 9}⋅6{sup 6}){sub n} topologies with n = 1, 2, and 3, respectively, for the cobalt formate frameworks with increasing length of the cavities to match the ammoniums. This indicates the length-directing effect of the polyammoniums. The dynamic movements of polyammoniums between favored sites or orientations within the cavities lead to slow dielectric relaxations. All materials are spin-canted antiferromagnets in low temperatures and show reduced spontaneous magnetizations from di- and tri-, to tetra-ammoniums, because of the increased number of unique Co ions or the antiferromagnetically coupled sublattices.

    A novel thermal rearrangement, involving pyrimidine ring opening and subsequent ring closure leading to recyclization of the system, was identified in the reaction of (6-oxo-1,6-dihydropyrimidin-2-yl)guanidines 3 (where NR(1)R(2) = NH(2), NH alkyl, NH aralkyl, NHCH(2)Ph(R)) with triethyl orthoacetate, affording 4-substituted-2-methyl-6H-pyrimido[1,2-a][1,3,5]triazin-6-ones 6 and their ring opened products. However, no such rearrangement was observed with (6-oxo-1,6-dihydropyrimidin-2-yl)guanidines 3 bearing a tertiary amino or anilino substituent (i.e. where NR(1)R(2) = N(CH(3))(2), indoline, morpholino, NHAr). As expected, 2-substituted-4-methyl-6H-pyrimido[1,2-a][1,3,5]triazin-6-ones 4 were obtained as the final products. Experimental structural determination and theoretical studies were carried out to get an understanding of the observed thermal rearrangement. In addition, an attempt to obtain similar pyrimido[1,2-a][1,3,5]triazin-6-ones using N,N-dimethylacetamide dimethyl acetal (DMA-DMA) as one carbon inserting synthon had furnished triazine ring annulated product 14 bearing N,N-dimethyl enamino substituent at position 4 as a result of further reaction with a second molecule of DMA-DMA.

    The antioxidative properties of a novel curcumin analogue (2E,6E)-2,6-bis(3,5-dimethoxybenzylidene)cyclohexanone (MCH) were assessed by several in vitro models, including superoxide anion, hydroxyl radical and 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging and PC12 cell protection from H2O2 damage. MCH displayed superior O2•− quenching abilities compared to curcumin and vitamin C. In vitro stability of MCH was also improved compared with curcumin. Exposure of PC12 cells to 150 μM H2O2 caused a decrease of antioxidant enzyme activities, glutathione (GSH) loss, an increase in malondialdehyde (MDA) level, and leakage of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), cell apoptosis and reduction in cell viability. Pretreatment of the cells with MCH at 0.63–5.00 μM before H2O2 exposure significantly attenuated those changes in a dose-dependent manner. MCH enhanced cellular expression of transcription factor NF-E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) at the transcriptional level. Moreover, MCH could mitigate intracellular accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), the loss of mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP), and the increase of cleaved caspase-3 activity induced by H2O2. These results show that MCH protects PC12 cells from H2O2 injury by modulating endogenous antioxidant enzymes, scavenging ROS, activating the Nrf2 cytoprotective pathway and prevention of apoptosis.

The excess Si source led to a formation of SiO2 glass, which can act as a flux in case of formation of Ba3Si6O12N2.

    Resonant two-photon ionization (R2PI) time-of-flight mass spectroscopy is used to record S0-S1 spectra of the neutral complexes C6H6-(H2O)n with n=3-8 and (C6H6)2-(H2O)1,2. Due to limitations imposed by the size of these clusters, a number of vibronic level arguments are used to constrain the gross features of the geometries of these clusters. Among the spectral clues provided by the data are the frequency shifts of the transitions, their van der Waals structure, the fragmentation of the photoionized clusters, and the complexation-induced origin intensity and 610 splitting. In the 1:3 cluster, simple arguments are made based on the known structures of the 1:1 and 1:2 clusters which lead to the conclusion that all three water molecules reside on the same side of the benzene ring. Three structures for the 1:3 cluster are proposed which are consistent with the available data. Of these, only one is also consistent with the remarkable similarity of the 1:4 and 1:5 spectra to those of the 1:3 cluster. This structure involves a cyclic water trimer in which one of the water molecules is near the sixfold axis in a π hydrogen-bonded configuration. This structure is then expanded in the 1:4 and 1:5 clusters to incorporate the fourth and fifth water molecules in cyclic structures which place the additional water molecules far from the benzene ring without disturbing the interaction of the other water molecules with the benzene ring. For 1:n clusters with n≥6, subtle and then significant changes are observed in the spectra which indicate changes in the way the water cluster interacts with the benzene ring. This development occurs at precisely the water cluster size which calculations predict that cagelike water cluster structures will begin to compete and eventually be favored over large cyclic structures.

    Yb3+/Er3+ co-doped Gd6MoO12 and Yb3+/Er3+/Li+ tri-doped Gd6MoO12 phosphors were prepared by adjusting the annealing temperature via the high temperature solid-state method. Under the excitation of 980 nm semiconductor, the upconversion luminescence properties were investigated and discussed. In the experimental process, we get the optimum Yb3+ concentration and the concentration quench effect will happen while the concentration extends the given region. According to the Yb3+ concentration quenching effects, the critical distance between Yb3+ ions had been calculated. The measured UC luminescence exhibited a strong red emission near 660 nm and green emission at 530 nm and 550 nm, which are due to the transitions of Er3+(4F9/2, 2H11/2, 4S3/2) → Er3+(4I15/2). Then the effect of excitation power density in different regions on the upconversion mechanisms was investigated and the calculated results demonstrate that the green and red upconversion is a two-photon process. A possible mechanism was discussed. After Li+ ions mixing, the upconversion emission enhanced largely, and the optimum Li+ concentration was obtained while fixed the Yb3+ and Er3+ on the above optimum concentration. This enhancement owns to the decrease of the local symmetry around Er3+ after Li+ ions doping into the system. This result indicates that Li+ is a promising candidate for improving luminescence in some case.

  14. Dating of groundwater using anthropogenic gaseous tracers (SF6, SF5CF3, CFC-12, HC-1311): methodological aspects

    Groundwater is an important source of potable water in many countries. Nowadays, this strategic resource is at risk due to anthropogenic pollutants of various nature entering shallow aquifers. Proper management of groundwater resources requires precise understanding of groundwater dynamics on time scales characteristic for the history of pollutant input to groundwater. Several anthropogenic trace substances present in the atmosphere, such as freons (CFC-11, CFC-12) and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) play an increasingly important role as environmental tracers allowing a better insight into the dynamic of groundwater systems. The concentration of SF6 in the atmosphere is increasing steadily, with the growth rate in the order of 5% per year. Recently, a new trace gas (trifluoromethyl sulphur pentafluoride - SF5CF3) has been discovered in the atmosphere. The atmospheric concentrations of SF5CF3 reconstructed from archive air samples have been increasing during the late 1980s and 1990s with the growth of ca. 6 % per year, with the sings of leveling-off during the last decade. We present here a dedicated analytical system capable to determine environmental levels of several gaseous tracers (SF6, SF5CF3, CFC-12, HC-1311) in air and water, with the precision and accuracy sufficiently low do use them for groundwater dating. In addition, the system is capable to measure in the same water sample the concentrations of Ne and Ar. This allows corrections for excess air to be made and the calculations of recharge temperatures. The field sampling system is based on a dynamic head-space method. The analysed water is pumped continuously through the extraction system where the dynamic head-space is created. Approximately 100 liters of water has to be pumped through the system before the dynamic equilibrium is reached in the head-space volume. Then, gaseous sample is collected from the head-space volume (ca. 200 ml) and transferred to the laboratory. The mixing ratio measurements are

According to classical guidelines, the material would be considered only slightly toxic or practically nontoxic in both rats and mice. The sensitization study in the guinea pig did not show BIS(DMP)SHT to have potential sensitizing effects. Skin application studies on the rabbit demonstrated the material was cutaneously nonirritating. This material was also nonirritating in the rabbit eye application studies.

    Pyrope-knorringite garnets, Mg3(Al1-X Cr3+X)2Si3O12 with X=0.25, 0.50, and 1.00, were synthesized between 9 and 16 GPa and 1300 and 1600 °C, using multianvil high-pressure techniques. The garnets with X=0.25 and 0.50 are fine-grained, pink and violet in color. The end-member knorringites with X=1.00 are black when compact and gray when coarse-grained. The fine powder is greenish gray in natural light and pale pink under a tungsten lamp. Powder remission spectra in the wavenumber range 30 000 10 000 cm-1 on finely powdered crystals were measured by two different methods: (I.) by the use of a small integrating sphere for small samples or (II.) microscope-spectrometric measurement using diffusely reflected radiation from a 45° illuminated microsample. Both methods yielded similar diffuse reflectance spectra. The following crystal-field parameters of [6]Cr3+ were determined for garnets with X=0.25, 0.50, 1.00: 10 Dq=17 856, 17 596, 17 286 cm-1; and B=654, 677, 706 cm-1; nephelauxetic ratio β=(Bfield/Bfree)= 0.71, 0.74, 0.77. The β-values indicate decreasing covalency of the Cr O bond with increasing Cr content. The 10 Dq value for together with the mean Cr O distance in end-member knorringite, 1.96 Å (Novak and Gibbs 1971), were used to calculate from the spectral data, local mean Cr O distances (Langer 2001a) as a function of composition. The results indicate relatively strong local site relaxation with a value of ɛ=0.77.

    The spectra of cesium 6P3/2 - 8S1/2 excited-state transition have been obtained using double resonance optical-pumping (DROP) technique in a room-temperature vapor cell, and have shown a much better signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) compared with that using the traditional optical-optical double resonance (OODR) method. Furthermore, the line-width of DROP spectra is obviously narrowed by electromagnetically-induced transparency (EIT) effect in cesium 6S1/2 F=4 - 6P3/2 F'=5 - 8S1/2 F''=4 transitions. Finally, such DROP spectrum of 6P3/2 F'=5 - 8S1/2 F''=4 transition with a high SNR and a narrow line-width is applied into frequency stabilization of a 795 nm external-cavity diode laser, and the residual frequency fluctuation is ~ 600 kHz within 500 s.

  4. Recent Results for Large Diameter (12 cm) Gas Puff Z-Pinches at Peak Currents of >3 to <6 MA

    There is strong interest in many laboratories worldwide in utilizing less expensive, longer rise-time (> 200 ns) pulsed power to drive x-ray producing z-pinches. Based on the idea of a magnetically-driven annular implosion, the emission of K-shell photons requires high energy per ion (implosion velocity above 43 cm/{mu}s for argon) to strip the atoms to the helium-like and hydrogen-like states. This high velocity must be combined with high density in the final hot plasma to produce significant x-ray yield. To first order, implosion velocity correlates with the initial diameter of the z-pinch load in proportion to the implosion time. Thus some effort has been made in the last few years to develop larger diameter z-pinch loads suitable for use with the longer rise-time drivers. Advancing from the <4 cm diameter loads (used for 100 ns implosions) of a decade ago, progress with 8 cm loads was reported at the last DZP meeting. Here we review further progress with 12 cm loads as used to date at peak currents of 3.5 MA to almost 6 MA with >200 ns implosion times. The most interesting result is that implosions from 12 cm diameter have not proven hopelessly unstable. High quality pinches with few millimeter K-shell emitting diameters, <5 ns pulse widths, electron temperatures above 1.7 keV and ion densities >4*1019/cm{sup 3} have been achieved. The observed argon K yield has equaled simple scaling estimates that ignore the expected increase in instabilities for large initial diameters. This more stable result probably occurs because we are using radial mass distributions that are 'snowplow' stabilized, i.e., they are not shell-like but rather have smoothly varying mass with the radial density gradient, d{rho}/dr small or negative over much of the gas flow. Data on yield as a function of the radial distribution suggest that a near or on-axis peak in the initial gas density is probably optimal. Work remains to be done to establish the details of the 'best' mass distribution.

    The temperature-dependences of line broadening and shift parameters for many 12CH3D transitions have been determined using six high-resolution, high signal-to-noise ratio, room-temperature CH3D (98% purity) and CH3D-N2 spectra recorded with 25 cm path length (at 0.01 cm-1 unapodized resolution) using the McMath-Pierce FTS located on Kitt Peak, Arizona, and 17 additional high quality, pure CH3D (99% purity) and CH3D-N2 spectra recorded between 79 and 296 K with the 20.38 cm path coolable cell (at 0.0056 cm-1 unapodized resolution) with the Bruker 125HR FTS at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena, California. The spectra have been fitted simultaneously applying a multispectrum nonlinear least-squares technique. In the analysis, the Lorentzian N2-broadened half-width coefficients and the corresponding pressure-shift coefficients as well as their temperature dependences are extracted for about 400 transitions (0≤J″≤19, K″≤16) in the perpendicular (ΔK=±1) ν6 band. At 296 K, the measured N2-broadened half-width coefficients range from 0.0209 to 0.0782 cm-1 atm-1 whereas the majority of the associated N2-induced shift coefficients are negative, and the values are between -0.016 and 0.005 cm-1 atm-1. The temperature dependence exponents for N2-broadened half-widths range between 0.264 and 0.924, whereas the temperature dependence coefficients for N2-induced shifts are between 0 and 0.00011 cm-1 atm-1 K-1. The N2-broadened half-width coefficients have been also calculated using a semi-classical approach based on a rigorous treatment of the active molecule as a symmetric top, a model intermolecular potential comprising both short- and long-range interactions, and exact classical trajectories. The role of the various high-order multipoles in the line-broadening at low, middle and high values of the rotational quantum number J″ has been investigated and the main features of the K-dependences analyzed. The calculations performed for 296, 240 and 190 K

    α-Bi2Mo3O12 and γ-Bi2MoO6 powders have been successfully fabricated via a sol-gel method starting from bismuth nitrate and ammonium molybdate. The as-synthesized samples were characterized by x-ray powder diffraction analysis, thermogravimetry and differential thermogravimetry, scanning electron microscopy, and ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) absorption spectroscopy. The results indicated the formation of α-Bi2Mo3O12 and γ-Bi2MoO6 powders in acidic (pH 5) and alkaline (pH 9) conditions, respectively. α-Bi2Mo3O12 exhibited irregular shape, while γ-Bi2MoO6 showed approximately flake-like morphology. The bandgap of pure α-Bi2Mo3O12 and γ-Bi2MoO6 was estimated to be about 2.83 eV and 2.85 eV, respectively, according to UV-Vis studies. The slight shift of the absorption edge towards longer wavelength for α-Bi2Mo3O12 indicated a decrease of the optical bandgap. Photocatalytic experiments showed that γ-Bi2MoO6 exhibited higher photodegradation activity of methylene blue compared with α-Bi2Mo3O12.

    Nanosized Gd6WO12 phosphors containing various Er3+ concentrations and fixed Yb3+ concentration were synthesized by a co-precipitation method. The crystal structure and microscopic morphology of the obtained nanophosphors were characterized by means of X-ray diffraction (XRD) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM). Two-photon processes for both the green and red upconversion (UC) emissions were confirmed by analyzing the dependence of UC intensities on 980 nm laser working current. UC emission intensity changing with temperature displays different trends for the samples with different Er3+ concentrations. The experimental results indicated that thermal quenching behavior of UC luminescence could not be simply explained by crossover mechanism. The enhancement for green UC emission in the sample with higher Er3+ concentration was discussed. Finally, the ErS+ concentration dependence of UC luminescence was experimentally observed, and its mechanisms were analyzed. PMID:27451662

    A new groundwater dating procedure using the transient atmospheric signal of the environmental tracers SF5CF3, CFC-13, SF6, and CFC-12 was developed. The analytical procedure determines concentrations of the four tracers in air and water samples. SF5CF3 and CFC-13 can be used to date groundwaters in some environments where the CFCs and SF6 have previously failed because these new tracers have increasing atmospheric input functions, no known terrigenic source, and are believed to be stable under reducing conditions. SF5CF3 has a dating range from 1970 to modern; the mixing ratio (mole fraction) in North American air has increased from the detection limit of 0.005 parts per trillion (ppt) to the 2006 mole fraction of about 0.16 ppt. No evidence was found for degradation of SF5CF3 in laboratory anaerobic systems. The solubility of SF5CF3 was measured in water from 1 to 35°C. Groundwater samples that contained large amounts of terrigenic SF6 did not contain terrigenic SF5CF3. CFC-13 is a trace atmospheric gas with a dating range in groundwater of about 1965 to modern. CFC-13 has been used primarily in very low-temperature refrigeration; thus groundwater environments are less likely to be contaminated with nonatmospheric sources as compared to other widely used CFCs. Because of the low solubility of SF5CF3 and CFC-13 in water, an excess air correction must be applied to the apparent ages. The new dating procedure was tested in water samples from wells and springs from Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia.

The new dating procedure was tested in water samples from wells and springs from Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia.

  16. Modified kagome physics in the natural spin-1/2 kagome lattice systems: kapellasite Cu3Zn(OH)6Cl2 and haydeeite Cu3Mg(OH)6Cl2.

    The recently discovered natural minerals Cu3Zn(OH)6Cl2 and Cu3Mg(OH)6Cl2 are spin 1/2 systems with an ideal kagome geometry. Based on electronic structure calculations, we develop a realistic model which includes couplings across the kagome hexagons beyond the original kagome model that are intrinsic in real kagome materials. Exact diagonalization studies for the derived model reveal a strong impact of these couplings on the magnetic ground state. Our predictions could be compared to and supplied with neutron scattering, thermodynamic data, and NMR data. PMID:18851233

    Crown ether-based chiral stationary phases (CSPs) have been known to be useful for the resolution of racemic primary amino compounds. In particular, CSPs based on (+)-(18-crown-6)-2,3,11,12-tetracarboxylic acid have been reported to be useful for the resolution of secondary amino compounds as well as primary amino compounds. In this article, the process of developing various CSPs based on (+)-(18-crown-6)-2,3,11,12-tetracarboxylic acid to improve the chiral recognition efficiency and/or the stability of the CSPs and their applications to the resolution of various primary and nonprimary amino compounds are reviewed.

    The garnet-type solid conductor Li7-xLa3Zr2-xTaxO12 is known to have high ionic conductivity. We synthesized a series of compositions of this conductor and found that cubic Li6.6La3Zr1.6Ta0.4O12 (LLZO-Ta) has a high ionic conductivity of 3.7×10(-4)Scm(-1) at room temperature. The (7)Li NMR spectrum of LLZO-Ta was composed of narrow and broad components, and the linewidth of the narrow component varied from 0.69kHz (300K) to 0.32kHz (400K). We carried out lithium ion diffusion measurements using pulsed-field spin-echo (PGSE) NMR spectroscopy and found that echo signals were observed at T≥313K with reasonable sensitivity. The lithium diffusion behavior was measured by varying the observation time and pulsed-field gradient (PFG) strength between 313 and 384K. We found that lithium diffusion depended significantly on the observation time and strength of the PFG, which is quite different from lithium ion diffusion in liquids. It was shown that lithium ion migration in the solid conductor was distributed widely in both time and space. PMID:26051010

    Single-crystal structure refinements on lithium lanthanum zirconate (LLZO; Li7La3Zr2O12) substituted with gallium were successfully carried out in the cubic symmetry space group I 3d. Gallium was found on two lithium sites as well as on the lanthanum position. Due to the structural distortion of the resulting Li6.43(2)Ga0.52(3)La2.67(4)Zr2O12 (Ga–LLZO) single crystals, a reduction of the LLZO cubic garnet symmetry from Ia d to I 3d was necessary, which could hardly be analysed from X-ray powder diffraction data.

    Van der Waals binding energies for the X-O(2) complexes (X=Xe, CH(3)I, C(3)H(6), C(6)H(12)) are determined by analysis of experimental velocity map imaging data for O((3)P(2)) atoms arising from UV-photodissociation of the complex [A. V. Baklanov et al., J. Chem. Phys. 126, 124316 (2007)]. Several dissociation pathways have been observed, we focus on the channel corresponding to prompt dissociation of X-O(2) into X+2O((3)P) fragments, which is present for complexes of O(2) with all partners X. Our method is based on analysis of the kinetic energy of all three photofragments, where the O atom kinetic energy was directly measured in the experiment and the kinetic energy of the X partner was calculated using momentum conservation, along with the measured angular anisotropy for O atom recoil. We exploit the fact that the clusters are all T-shaped or nearly T-shaped, which we also confirm by ab initio calculations, along with knowledge of the transition dipole governing radiative absorption by the complex. The effect of partitioning the kinetic energy between translation along the X-O(2) and O-O coordinates on the angular anisotropy of the O atom recoil direction is discussed. Van der Waals binding energies of 110±20 cm(-1), 280±20 cm(-1), 135±30 cm(-1), and 585±20 cm(-1) are determined for Xe-O(2), CH(3)I-O(2), C(3)H(6)-O(2), and C(6)H(12)-O(2) clusters, respectively.

    We demonstrate that in the large N approach developed by the authors in collaboration with Bardeen, the parameters B 6 (1/2) and B 8 (3/2) parametrizing the K → ππ matrix elements < Q 6>0 and < Q 8>2 of the dominant QCD and electroweak operators receive both negative O(1/N) corrections such that B 6 (1/2) ≤ B 8 (3/2) < 1 in agreement with the recent lattice results of the RBC-UKQCD collaboration. We also point out that the pattern of the size of the hadronic matrix elements of all QCD and electroweak penguin operators Q i contributing to the K → ππ amplitudes A 0 and A 2, obtained by this lattice collaboration, provides further support to our large N approach. In particular, the lattice result for the matrix element < Q 8>0 implies for the corresponding parameter B 8 (1/2) = 1.0 ± 0.2 to be compared with large N value B 8 (1/2) = 1.1 ± 0.1. We discuss briefly the implications of these findings for the ratio ɛ' /ɛ. In fact, with the precise value for B 8 (3/2) from RBC-UKQCD collaboration, our upper bound on B 6 (1/2) implies ɛ' /ɛ in the SM roughly by a factor of two below its experimental value (16 .6± 2 .3) × 10-4. We also briefly comment on the parameter {widehat{B}}_K and the Δ I = 1 /2 rule.

    We obtained IRAS and TDS data for Ru{sub 3}(CO){sub 12}/Ru(001) and Mo(CO){sub 6}/Au/Ru systems for metal carbonyl coverages between submonolayer and approximately 20 monolayers. We characterized the C-O stretching mode of both systems (4 cm{sup {minus}1} FWHM) and a deformation mode of Mo(CO){sub 6} at 608 cm{sup {minus}1} (1 cm{sup {minus}1} FWHM). Both IRAS and TDS data suggest adsorption and desorption of metal carbonyls as molecular species with a preferential orientation in the overlayers. The IR intensity of the C-O stretch per a C-O bond projected onto the surface normal is approximately twice (five times) larger for Ru{sub 3}(CO){sub 12} (Mo(CO){sub 6}) at submonolayer coverages than for CO/Ru(001) at {theta}{sub CO}=0.68. 31 refs., 4 figs.

    The cross sections of spin-orbit energy exchange between the cesium 62P1/2↔62P3/2 states induced by collisions with N2, H2, HD, D2, CH4, C2H6, CF4, and C2F6 were obtained for pressures less than 100 Torr at room temperature by means of steady-state laser-induced fluorescence techniques. The spin-orbit energy exchange rate with N2, H2, HD, D2, CH4, C2H6, CF4, and C2F6, have been measured as σ21(62P3/2→62P1/2)= 16.3, 34.1, 30.0, 22.7, 21.4, 65.6, 64.8, and 137 Å2 and σ12(62P1/2→62P3/2)= 1.8, 4.4, 4.1, 3.0, 2.9, 13.3, 9.7, and 16.3 Å2, respectively. Correlations of the spin-orbit transfer probabilities with rotational-energy defect and vibrational-energy defect have been shown.

    1,2-Dichloropropane (1,2-DCP) has recently been reclassified from not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans (Group 3) to carcinogenic to humans (Group 1) by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. This was based on the findings of epidemiological studies in Japan that occupational exposure to paint stripers containing 1,2-DCP was associated with increased cholangiocarcinomas. It is known that 1,2-DCP is negative for cholangiocarcinogenicity in rats and mice. However, its toxicity and carcinogenicity has not been examined in hamsters and little is known about the regulation of its metabolism in hamsters. The purpose of this study was to determine the hepatobiliary toxicity of 1,2-DCP in hamsters and to characterize and compare the altered patterns of hepatic xenometabolic enzymes in hamsters and mice. Male Syrian hamsters and male B6C3F1 mice were treated with various doses of 1,2-DCP for 4 h or 3 days or 4 weeks. These experiments demonstrated that a high dose of 1,2-DCP induced centrilobular hepatocellular necrosis in hamsters. CYP2E1 is possibly the key enzyme responsible for bioactivation and the consequent hepatocytotoxicity of 1,2-DCP, and GSH conjugation catalyzed by GST-T1 may exert a cytoprotective role in hamsters and mice. Notably, the expression pattern of GST-T1 in bile duct epithelial cells differed between hamsters and mice: GST-T1 was expressed in bile duct epithelial cells of mice but not hamsters. This indicates that responses to 1,2-DCP in the bile duct of hamsters might differ from that of mice, and suggests that long-term studies are necessary to clarify the chalangiocarcinogenicity of 1,2-DCP in hamsters, though no biliary toxicity was observed in the present short-term experiments.

    Zintl phases are compounds that have shown promise for thermoelectric applications. The title solid–solution Zintl compounds were prepared from the elements as single crystals using a tin flux for compositions x = 0, 1, 2, and 3. Eu11Cd6Sb12–xAsx (x < 3) crystallize isostructurally in the centrosymmetric monoclinic space group C2/m (no. 12, Z = 2) as the Sr11Cd6Sb12 structure type (Pearson symbol mC58). Efforts to make the As compositions for x exceeding ~3 resulted in structures other than the Sr11Cd6Sb12 structure type. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction indicates that As does not randomly substitute for Sb in the structure but is site specific for each composition. The amount of As determined by structural refinement was verified by electron microprobe analysis. Electronic structures and energies calculated for various model structures of Eu11Cd6Sb10As2 (x = 2) indicated that the preferred As substitution pattern involves a mixture of three of the six pnicogen sites in the asymmetric unit. In addition, As substitution at the Pn4 site opens an energy gap at the Fermi level, whereas substitution at the other five pnicogen sites remains semimetallic with a pseudo gap. Thermoelectric properties of these compounds were measured on hot-pressed, fully densified pellets. Samples show exceptionally low lattice thermal conductivities from room temperature to 775 K: 0.78–0.49 W/mK for x = 0; 0.72–0.53 W/mK for x = 1; and 0.70–0.56 W/mK for x = 2. Eu11Cd6Sb12 shows a high p-type Seebeck coefficient (from +118 to 153 μ V/K) but also high electrical resistivity (6.8 to 12.8 mΩ·cm). The value of zT reaches 0.23 at 774 K. The properties of Eu11Cd6Sb12–xAsx are interpreted in discussion with the As site substitution.

    The MAPKs ERK1/2 respond to nutrients and other insulin secretagogues in pancreatic β-cells and mediate nutrient-dependent insulin gene transcription. Nutrients also stimulate the mechanistic target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) to regulate protein synthesis. We showed previously that activation of both ERK1/2 and mTORC1 in the MIN6 pancreatic β-cell-derived line by extracellular amino acids (AAs) is at least in part mediated by the heterodimeric T1R1/T1R3, a G protein-coupled receptor. We show here that AAs differentially activate these two signaling pathways in MIN6 cells. Pretreatment with pertussis toxin did not prevent the activation of either ERK1/2 or mTORC1 by AAs, indicating that Gi is not central to either pathway. Although glucagon-like peptide 1, an agonist for a Gs-coupled receptor, activated ERK1/2 well and mTORC1 to a small extent, AAs had no effect on cytosolic cAMP accumulation. Ca2+ entry is required for ERK1/2 activation by AAs but is dispensable for AA activation of mTORC1. Pretreatment with UBO-QIC, a selective Gq inhibitor, reduced the activation of ERK1/2 but had little effect on the activation of mTORC1 by AAs, suggesting a differential requirement for Gq. Inhibition of G12/13 by the overexpression of the regulator of G protein signaling domain of p115 ρ-guanine nucleotide exchange factor had no effect on mTORC1 activation by AAs, suggesting that these G proteins are also not involved. We conclude that AAs regulate ERK1/2 and mTORC1 through distinct signaling pathways. PMID:26168033

    This report presents a historical evaluation of the U12t Tunnel on the Nevada Test Site in southern Nevada. The work was conducted by the Desert Research Institute at the request of the U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration Nevada Site Office and the U.S. Department of Defense, Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). The U12t Tunnel is one of a series of tunnels used for underground nuclear weapons effects tests on the east side of Rainier and Aqueduct Mesas. Six nuclear weapons effects tests, Mint Leaf, Diamond Sculls, Husky Pup, Midas Myth/Milagro, Mighty Oak, and Mission Ghost, and one high explosive test, SPLAT, were conducted within the U12t Tunnel from 1970 to 1987. All six of the nuclear weapons effects tests and the high explosive test were sponsored by DTRA. Two conventional weapons experiments, Dipole Knight and Divine Eagle, were conducted in the tunnel portal area in 1997 and 1998. These experiments were sponsored by the Defense Special Weapons Agency. The U12t Tunnel complex is composed of the Portal and Mesa Areas and includes an underground tunnel with a main access drift and nine primary drifts, a substantial tailings pile fronting the tunnel portal, a series of discharge ponds downslope of the tailings pile, and two instrumentation trailer parks and 16 drill holes on top of Aqueduct Mesa. A total of 89 cultural features were recorded: 54 at the portal and 35 on the mesa. In the Portal Area, cultural features are mostly concrete pads and building foundations; other features include the portal, rail lines, the camel back, ventilation and cooling system components, communication equipment, and electrical equipment. On the mesa are drill holes, a few concrete pads, a loading ramp, and electrical equipment.

  10. Automated fluorous-assisted solution-phase synthesis of β-1,2-, 1,3-, and 1,6-mannan oligomers.

    Automated solution-phase syntheses of β-1,2-, 1,3-, and 1,6-mannan oligomers have been accomplished by applying a β-directing C-5 carboxylate strategy. Fluorous-tag-assisted purification after each reaction cycle allowed the synthesis of short β-mannan oligomers with limited loading of glycosyl donor-as low as 3.0 equivalents for each glycosylation cycle. This study showed the capability of the automated solution-phase synthesis protocol for synthesizing various challenging glycosides, including use of a C-5 ester as a protecting group that could be converted under reductive conditions to a hydroxymethyl group for chain extension.

  11. Polarization degrees of 3p 2P3/2-3s 2S1/2 transition in O5+(1s 23p) produced in collisions of O6+ with He and H2

    Electron capture processes in collisions of O6+ with ground state He and H2 are investigated using the two-centre atomic orbital close-coupling method. Total and state-selective one-electron capture cross sections are obtained for collision energies between 0.5 and 300 keV/u. The comparison with the available experimental state-selective capture data in the overlapping energy range (0.5-100 keV/u for O6++He and 0.5-8 keV/u for O6++H2) shows a good overall agreement. The polarization degrees of 3p 2P3/2-3s 2S1/2 radiation from O5+(3p 2P3/2) produced in O6++He and O6++H2 collisions are calculated from the magnetic substate-selective cross sections with inclusion of cascade contributions from higher n = 4 and n = 5 states. Good agreement is obtained with the experimental data available in the energy range 3-8 keV/u. Below ~10 keV/u, the polarization degrees of O5+(3p 2P3/2) in both collision systems exhibit an oscillatory structure and above this energy they steadily increase with the increase of collision energy, reaching the values of about 0.37 at 300 keV/u. The energy behaviour of the polarization degree of O5+(3p 2P3/2) in the O6++He collision system is determined almost exclusively by the direct electron capture to 3p0 and 3p1 states of O5+, while in the case of the O6++H2 collision system in the energy region below ~40 keV/u it is strongly affected by the cascade contributions from the 4l states, which are the dominant capture states in this system.

Two complexes are structural analogues of [n-BuNH(3)](12)[(CuCl)(6)(AsW(9)O(33))(2)]·6H(2)O (2) and [n-BuNH(3)](12)[(MnCl)(6)(SbW(9)O(33))(2)]·6H(2)O (3) with their ferromagnetic interactions, first reported by us in 2006. (1) When variable temperature (T) direct current (dc) magnetic susceptibility (χ(M)) data are analyzed with the isotropic exchange Hamiltonian for the magnetic exchange interactions, χ(M)T vs T curves fitted by a full matrix diagonalization (for 1) and by the Kambe vector coupling method/Van Vleck's approximation (for 4) yield J = +29.5 and -0.09 cm(-1) and g = 2.3 and 1.9, respectively. These J values were significantly distinguished from +61.0 and +0.14 cm(-1) for 2 and 3, respectively. The magnetization under the pulsed field (up to 10(3) T/s) at 0.5 K exhibits hysteresis loops in the adiabatic process, and the differential magnetization (dM/dB) plots against the pulsed field display peaks characteristic of resonant quantum tunneling of magnetization (QTM) at Zeeman crossed fields, indicating single-molecule magnets for 1-3. High-frequency ESR (HFESR) spectroscopy on polycrystalline samples provides g(∥) = 2.30, g(⊥) = 2.19, and D = -0.147 cm(-1) for 1 (S = 3 ground state), g(∥) = 2.29, g(⊥) = 2.20, and D = -0.145 cm(-1) for 2 (S = 3), and g(∥) = 2.03 and D = -0.007 cm(-1) for 3 (S = 15).

    In the title compound, C8H9N5O, the mean planes through the pyrimidine and triazine rings form a dihedral angle of 2.83 (16)°. The amino group adopts a trigonal-planar configuration and forms an intra­molecular resonance-assisted N—H⋯O=C hydrogen bond with the carbonyl group. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked via inter­molecular N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds into chains of C 2 2(6)[R 2 2(6)] motif. The molecules form two types of sheet parallel to (201) and (01), respectively.

    We re-examine a series of archived centimetre radio-continuum observations ( λ=16, 6 and 3 cm) focusing on NGC 7793 using the Australia Telescope Compact Array. These new images are both very sensitive ( σ=0.011 mJy/beam) and feature reasonably high angular resolution (down to <3″). Using these images, a total of 76 discrete radio sources are identified, of which 57 have been classified. We also studied the radio component of the micro-quasar NGC7793-S26 which shows two distinct regions of somewhat steep spectral index ( α) between -0.3 and -0.7.

    An efficient and unprecedented organocatalytic asymmetric reaction of 3-pyrrolyl-oxindoles with α,β-unsaturated aldehydes to generate spirocyclic oxindole compounds was developed. The reactions were catalyzed by diphenylprolinol silyl ether and 2-fluorobenzoic acid via an asymmetric Michael/Friedel-Crafts cascade process, followed by dehydration with p-toluenesulfonic acid to afford a wide variety of structurally diverse spiro[5,6-dihydropyrido[1,2-a]pyrrole-3,3'-oxindole] derivatives in high yields (up to 93%) and with high to excellent diastereo- and enantioselectivities (up to >99:1 dr and 97% ee).

    In the title compound, C25H26ClN, the piperidine ring has a chair conformation with all ring substituents in equatorial positions. The dihedral angle formed between the chloro­benzene ring and the flanking phenyl rings are 74.91 (18) and 47.86 (17)°. The chloro substituent is anti to the piperidine N atom. In the crystal, centrosymmetrically related mol­ecules aggregate via π–π inter­actions occurring between chloro­benzene rings [centroid–centroid distance = 3.778 (2) Å] and these are linked into linear supra­molecular chains along the a axis by C—H⋯π inter­actions occurring between the phenyl rings.

    Bulk glasses of compositions Se{sub 85-x}Te{sub 15}In{sub x} (x = 3,6,9,12) are prepared by melt quenching technique and Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is employed to study the thermal stability, crystallization mechanism as well as specific heat of these glasses. It is found that the addition of indium increases the glass transition temperature. From the heating rate dependence of the glass transition temperature the activation energy of glass transition is determined using Kissinger's equation for non-isothermal crystallization of materials. An attempt has been made to explain the variation in the value of T{sub c}, T{sub p} and {Delta}C{sub p} for the composition Se{sub 73}Te{sub 15}In{sub 12} using rigidity percolation threshold (RPT).

    The reactions of two 3-(2-allylanilino)-3-phenylacrylate esters with acetic anhydride and with strong acids has revealed a richly diverse reactivity providing a number of unexpected products. Thus, acetylation of ethyl 3-(2-allylanilino)-3-phenylacrylate, (Ia), or ethyl 3-(2-allyl-4-methylanilino)-3-phenylacrylate, (Ib), with acetic anhydride yields not only the expected acetylated esters, (II), as the major products but also the unexpected polysubstituted quinolines 3-acetyl-8-allyl-2-phenylquinolin-4-yl acetate, (IIIa), and 3-acetyl-8-allyl-6-methyl-2-phenylquinolin-4-yl acetate, (IIIb), as minor products. Subsequent reaction of the major product ethyl 2-[(2-allyl-4-methylanilino)(phenyl)methylidene]-3-oxobutanoate, (IIb), with concentrated sulfuric acid did not provide the expected 3-acetylquinoline derivative, but instead two unexpected products, namely ethyl 4-ethyl-2-phenyl-1,4-dihydroquinoline-3-carboxylate, (IV), and ethyl 3-acetyl-4-ethyl-2-phenyl-3,4-dihydroquinoline-3-carboxylate, (V), in yields of 39 and 22%, respectively. The reaction of (Ib) with Eaton's reagent gave both the quinoline (Z)-6-methyl-2-phenyl-8-(prop-1-en-1-yl)quinolin-4(1H)-one, (VI), and the unexpected tricyclic product (2RS)-2,8-dimethyl-4-phenyl-1,2-dihydro-6H-pyrrolo[3,2,1-ij]quinolin-6-one, (VII), in yields of 71 and 12%, respectively. The products (II)-(VII) have all been fully characterized spectroscopically and the crystal structures of two of the unexpected products, i.e. (IIIb) (C23H21NO3) and (VII) (C19H17NO), are reported here. The formation of compounds (IV), (V) and (VII) all require an isomerization of the initial allyl substituent, with migration of the C=C double bond from the terminal site to the internal site. In (IIIb), the two acetyl substituents are oriented such that the intramolecular distance between the two carbonyl O atoms is only 3.243 (2) Å, and in (VII), the five-membered ring adopts a twisted half-chair conformation.

The JH dyes have broad absorption spectra covering the range of 350 to 600 nm with the highest molar extinction coefficient up to >40 000 M(-1) cm(-1). The dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) fabricated from the dyes exhibited light-to-electricity conversions ranging from 1.42 to 6.18% under simulated AM 1.5 G illumination. Upon adding 10 mM CDCA as the coadsorbent, the best performance cell has the power conversion efficiency of 7.33%, which is close to that of N719-based standard DSSC (7.56%). PMID:25470385

    Further studies on 6,7-bis(hydroxymethyl)-1H,3H-pyrrolo[1,2-c]thiazoles as anticancer agents against breast cancer are reported, allowing to demonstrate the potential of these compounds for the therapy of the triple-negative breast cancer, the most challenging tumors in clinical practice. These compounds were assayed for their in vitro cytotoxicity on several human breast cancer cell lines (MCF7, HCC1954 and HCC1806 cell lines). Particularly interesting were the results obtained for 4-hydroxyphenyl substituted derivative, which proved to be the most promising compound regarding HCC1806 cell line, a triple-negative breast cancer. The effects of the two most active compounds on cell survival, viability, cell cycle, DNA damage and expression of proteins related to cell death pathways were studied. The reported results consolidate the potential of 6,7-bis(hydroxymethyl)-1H,3H-pyrrolo[1,2-c]thiazoles for the therapy of breast cancer, particularly the triple-negative. PMID:24747064

    The magnetic properties of polycrystalline intermetallics RCo 12B 6 with R = Y, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er and Tm have been studied in the temperature range 3-300 K and in fields up to 2 T. All compounds order magnetically between Tc=134.3 K for CeCo 12B 6 and Tc=162 K for GdCo 12B 6. YCo 12B 6 has an average Co moment of 0.42μ B. Since the Co moment is constant for all samples the R moments can be easily obtained and they are in good agreement with free R 3+ ion values. Ce is quadripositive in CeCo 12B 6 and therefore nonmagnetic. All light rare-earth compounds are ferromagnetic, while all heavy rare-earth compounds are ferrimagnetic with compensation points between Tcomp=11.6 K ( TmCo12B6) and Tcomp=82.8 K ( TbCo12B6). In the paramagnetic state an effective magnetic moment of 1.94μ B per Co atom has been found. The mean-field approximation yields a 3d-3d exchange integral of {J CoCo}/{k B}=110 K . The 3d-4f exchange integral is much smaller and equal to about {J RCo}/{k B}=6 K .

    It is reported here, for the first time, that high-quality bulk size (18 × 5 × 4 mm3) single crystals of a new nonlinear optical crystal, [(NH4)[Cd(NCS)3]·C12H24O6] [Ammonium (18-crown-6-ether) Cadmium(II) tri-thiocyanate; ACCTC], have been grown from aqueous solution via slow evaporation technique. Solubility of ACCTC has been determined for various temperatures. The grown crystals were characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction, FT-IR, FT-Raman, and UV-Vis-NIR studies. ACCTC crystallizes in orthorhombic system with cell parameters a = 14.7568 Ǻ, b = 15.4378 Ǻ, and c = 10.6383 Ǻ with space group Cmc21. The optical second-harmonic generation effect has been measured by using the Kurtz powder technique and is found to be 2 times higher than that of KDP (KH2PO4). The sample possesses wide optical transparency range from 200 to 2,500 nm. The TG-DSC thermal analysis revealed that the sample is thermally stable up to 237.92 °C, which is comparatively far better than the thermal stability of [(18C6)Li][Cd(SCN)3]; CLTC (170 °C).

    Background The risk of glioma has consistently been shown to be increased two-fold in relatives of patients with primary brain tumors (PBT). A recent genome-wide linkage study of glioma families provided evidence for a disease locus on 17q12-21.32, with the possibility of four additional risk loci at 6p22.3, 12p13.33-12.1, 17q22-23.2, and 18q23. Methods To identify the underlying genetic variants responsible for the linkage signals, we compared the genotype frequencies of 5,122 SNPs mapping to these five regions in 88 glioma cases with and 1,100 cases without a family history of PBT (discovery study). An additional series of 84 familial and 903 non-familial cases were used to replicate associations. Results In the discovery study, 12 SNPs showed significant associations with family history of PBT (P < 0.001). In the replication study, two of the 12 SNPs were confirmed: 12p13.33-12.1 PRMT8 rs17780102 (P = 0.031) and 17q12-21.32 SPOP rs650461 (P = 0.025). In the combined analysis of discovery and replication studies, the strongest associations were attained at four SNPs: 12p13.33-12.1 PRMT8 rs17780102 (P = 0.0001), SOX5 rs7305773 (P = 0.0001) and STKY1 rs2418087 (P = 0.0003), and 17q12-21.32 SPOP rs6504618 (P = 0.0006). Further, a significant gene-dosage effect was found for increased risk of family history of PBT with these four SNPs in the combined data set (Ptrend < 1.0 ×10−8). Conclusion The results support the linkage finding that some loci in the 12p13.33-12.1 and 17q12-q21.32 may contribute to gliomagenesis and suggest potential target genes underscoring linkage signals.

    The first isolable benzo-1,2-diselenete, 4,5-dicyano-3,6-diethylbenzo-1,2-diselenete (4), was prepared by the reaction of 4,5-(o-xylylenediseleno)-3,6-diethylphthalonitrile (3) with aluminum chloride in toluene. X-ray crystallographic analysis demonstrated that 4 contains a trapezoidal diselenide ring rather than a benzo-1,2-diselenone structure. In crystal form, 4 undergoes self-assembly and generates structures based on layered molecular sheets since the unit cell contains only one molecule. While the cyclic voltammogram of 4 exhibited only one irreversible peak (Ep = 1.59 V) during oxidation and two quasireversible couples during reduction, three peaks were observed in the differential pulse voltammogram of the reduction couples (E1/2 = -1.19, -0.75, and -0.69 V). Although a THF solution of 4 in the presence of sodium metal was EPR silent, various signals were readily observed in its (1)H, (13)C, and (77)Se NMR spectra. Molecular orbital calculations for 4 demonstrated that the HOMO orbital is primarily localized at the two selenium atoms and four of the benzene carbon atoms while the LUMO orbital is situated solely on the diselenete ring. It appears that the HOMO and LUMO orbitals of 4 receive significant stabilization from the nitrile groups compared to the level of stabilization in the unsubstituted benzo-1,2-diselenete (BDS). The reaction of 4 with tetrakis(triphenylphosphine)palladium in benzene was found to produce a dinuclear palladium complex (8), and the structure of this complex was determined by X-ray crystallographic analysis. The central four membered ring of 8 consists of the Pd1, Se2, Pd2, and Se3 atoms and is not planar but rather adopts a folded arrangement. PMID:24724937

    The main objective of this study was to compare the physiological changes (withdrawal and corneal reflexes, respiratory and cardiac frequency, blood oxygen saturation, and rectal temperature) following intraperitoneal administration of ketamine (80 mg/kg) and xylazine (10 mg/kg) to 3-, 6-, 12- and 18-month-old male Sprague Dawley rats (n=6/age group). Plasma pharmacokinetics, liver metabolism, and blood biochemistry were examined for a limited number of animals to better explain anesthetic drug effects. Selected organs were collected for histopathology. The results for the withdrawal and corneal reflexes suggest a shorter duration and decreased depth of anesthesia with aging. Significant cardiac and respiratory depression, as well as decreased blood oxygen saturation, occurred in all age groups however, cardiac frequency was the most affected parameter with aging, since the 6-, 12-, and 18-month-old animals did not recuperate to normal values during recovery from anesthesia. Pharmacokinetic parameters (T1/2 and AUC) increased and drug clearance decreased with aging, which strongly suggests that drug exposure is associated with the physiological results. The findings for liver S9 fractions of 18-month-old rats compared with the other age groups suggest that following a normal ketamine anesthetic dose (80 mg/kg), drug metabolism is impaired, leading to a significant increase of drug exposure. In conclusion, age and related factors have a substantial effect on ketamine and xylazine availability, which is reflected by significant changes in pharmacokinetics and liver metabolism of these drugs, and this translates into shorter and less effective anesthesia with increasing age.

  15. ASK1 (MAP3K5) as a potential therapeutic target in malignant fibrous histiocytomas with 12q14-q15 and 6q23 amplifications.

    Malignant fibrous histiocytomas (MFHs) are aggressive tumors without any definable line of differentiation. We recently demonstrated that about 20% of them are characterized by high-level amplifications of the 12q14-q15 chromosome region, associated with either 1p32 or 6q23 band amplification. This genetic finding, very similar to that in well-differentiated liposarcomas, strongly suggests that these tumors actually correspond to undifferentiated liposarcomas. It also suggests that the lack of differentiation could be the consequence of amplification of target genes localized in the 1p32 or 6q23 bands. We report here the characterization by array CGH of the 6q23 minimal region of amplification. Our findings demonstrate that amplification and overexpression of ASK1 (MAP3K5), a gene localized in the 6q23 band and encoding a mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase of the JNK-MAPK signaling pathway, could inhibit the adipocytic differentiation process of the tumor cells. Treatment of a cell line with specific inhibitors of ASK1 protein resulted in the bypass of the differentiation block and induction of a strong adipocytic differentiation. These observations indicate that ASK1 is a target for new therapeutic management of these aggressive tumors. PMID:15034865

    This paper presents a description of a new zirconosilicate of the eudialyte group, which was named davinciite in honor of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), a famous Italian scientist, painter, sculptor and architect. The new mineral has been found in hyperagpaitic pegmatite at the Rasvumchorr Mountain, Khibiny Pluton, Kola Peninsula, as relict inclusions, up to 1-2 mm in size in a rastsvetaevite matrix. It is associated with nepheline, sodalite, potassium feldspar, delhayelite, aegirine, shcherbakovite, villiaumite, nitrite, nacaphite, rasvumite, and djerfisherite. Davinciite is dark lavender and transparent, with a vitreous luster and white streak. The new mineral is brittle, with conchoidal fracture; the Mohs' hardness is 5. No indications of cleavage or parting were observed. The measured density is 2.82(2) g/cm3 (volumetric method); the calculated density is 2.848 g/cm3. Davinciite is optically uniaxial, positive; ω = 1.603(2), ɛ = 1.605(2). It is nonpleochroic and nonfluorescent in UV light. The new mineral slowly breaks down and gelates in 50% HCl and HNO3. It is trigonal, space group R3m. The unit-cell dimensions are a = 14.2956(2), c = 30.0228(5) Å, V=5313.6(2) Å3. The strongest reflections in the X-ray powder diffraction pattern [ d, Å ( I, %) ( hkl)] are as follows: 2.981(100)(315), 2.860(96)(404), 4.309(66)(205), 3.207(63)(208), 6.415(54)(104), 3.162(43)(217). The chemical composition (electron microprobe, H2O calculated from X-ray diffraction data) is as follows, wt %: 12.69 Na2O, 3.53 K2O, 11.02 CaO, 0.98 SrO, 0.15 BaO, 5.33 FeO, 0.37 MnO, 0.07 Al2O3, 51.20 SiO2, 0.39 TiO2, 11.33 ZrO2, 0.21HfO2, 0.09 Nb2O5, 1.89 Cl, 0.93H2O, -O = Cl2 0.43; total is 99.75.

    This paper reviews the motivation for, results from, and analyses of 12-cm-diameter argon gas-puff experiments carried out over the last four years on three generators at 3.2- to 6.5-MA peak currents, all with implosion times {>=}200 ns. Using the argon K-shell yield as a metric of implosion quality, high-quality implosions are obtained for an appropriate initial radial mass distribution, i.e., a distribution that is peaked on axis. Higher compressed densities and smaller final radii are observed compared to shell-like initial mass distributions. Theory and data suggest that these distributions mitigate the magnetic Rayleigh-Taylor instability. An energy analysis shows that (1) significant electrical energy is directly coupled to the pinch during the K-shell radiation pulse and (2) conversion of radially-directed kinetic energy into thermal energy is not the dominant mechanism responsible for the pinch K-shell radiation.

    The X-ray powder analysis, thermogravimetric analysis, differential scanning calorimetry analysis and complex impedance spectroscopic data have been carried out on (C8H12N)3SnBr6.Br compound. The results show that this compound exhibits a phase transition at (T=365±2 K) which has been characterized by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), AC conductivity and dielectric measurements. The AC conductivity, the modulus analysis, the dielectric constants and the polarizability have been studied using impedance in the temperature range from 334 K to 383 K and in the frequency range between 20 Hz and 2 MHz. The temperature dependence of DC conductivity follows the Arrhenius law. Moreover, the frequency dependence of conductivity follows Jonscher's dynamical law with the relation: σ(ω , T) =σDC + B(T)ω s(T) . Relaxation peaks can be observed in the complex modulus analysis and after a transformation of the complex permittivity ε* to the complex polarizability α*.

    A multispectrum nonlinear least-squares fitting technique has been applied to determine accurate zero-pressure line center positions, Lorentz self-broadening and N2-broadening coefficients and self-induced and N2-induced pressure shift coefficients of transitions in the v6 (E) perpendicular band of 12 CH3D between 1035 and 1270 cm-1. High-resolution room temperature absorption spectra recorded with two Fourier transform spectrometers (FTS) were analyzed together. Three spectra at 0.002 cm-1 resolution recorded using the Bruker IFS 120 HR at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), and fourteen spectra obtained with the McMath-Pierce FTS (0.006 cm-1 resolution) at the National Solar Observatory (NSO) on Kitt Peak were used in the analysis.

    A new high symmetry Mn(12) oxocarboxylate cluster [Mn(12)O(12)(CN-o-C(6)H(4)CO(2))(12)(CH(3)CO(2))(4)(H(2)O)(4)]·8CH(2)Cl(2) (1) with mixed carboxylate ligands is reported. It was synthesized by the standard carboxylate substitution method. 1 crystallizes in the tetragonal space group I4(1)/a. Complex 1 contains a [Mn(12)O(12)] core with eight CN-o-C(6)H(4)CO(2) ligands in the axial positions, four CH(3)CO(2) and four CN-o-C(6)H(4)CO(2) in equatorial positions. Four H(2)O molecules are bonded to four Mn atoms in an alternating up, down, up, down arrangement indicating a 1 : 1 : 1 : 1 isomer. The Mn(12) molecules in 1 are self-assembled by complementary hydrogen C-H···N bonds formed with participation of the axial o-cyanobenzoate ligands of the adjacent Mn(12) clusters. The lattice solvent molecules (CH(2)Cl(2)) are weakly interacted with Mn(12) units that results in solvent loss immediately after removal of the crystals from the mother liquor. The electronic structure and the intramolecular exchange parameters have been calculated. Mn 3d bands of 1 are rather broad, and the center of gravity of the bands shifts down from the Fermi level. The overlap between Mn 3d bands and 2p ones of the oxygen atoms from the carboxylate bridges is higher than in the parent Mn(12)-acetate cluster. These changes in the electronic structure provide a significant difference in the exchange interactions in comparison to Mn(12)-acetate. The magnetic properties have been studied on a dried (solvent-free) polycrystalline sample of 1. The dc magnetic susceptibility measurements in the 2-300 K temperature range support a high-spin ground state (S = 10). A bifurcation of temperature dependencies of magnetization taken under zero field cooled and field cooled conditions observed below 4.5 K is due to slow magnetization relaxation. Magnetization versus applied dc field exhibited a stepwise hysteresis loop at 2 K. The ac magnetic susceptibility data revealed the frequency dependent out

    Background Essential fatty acid status as well as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6n-3) declines during pregnancy and lactation. As a result, the DHA status may not be optimal for child development and may increase the risk for maternal postpartum depression. The objective of this study was to assess changes in the maternal fatty acid status from pregnancy to 12 months postpartum, and to study the impact of seafood consumption on the individual fatty acid status. Methods Blood samples and seafood consumption habits (gestation week 28, and three-, six- and 12 months postpartum) were collected in a longitudinal observational study of pregnant and postpartum women (n = 118). Multilevel linear modeling was used to assess both changes over time in the fatty acid status of red blood cells (RBC), and in the seafood consumption. Results Six fatty acids varied the most (>80%) across the four time points analyzed, including the derivative of the essential α-linoleic acid (ALA, 18:3n-3), DHA; the essential linoleic acid (LA, 18:2 n-6); and the LA derivative, arachidonic acid (AA, 20:4n-6). Over all, a large variation in individuals’ DHA- and AA status was observed; however, over the 15-month study period only small inter-individual differences in the longitudinal trajectory of DHA- and AA abundance in the RBC were detected. The median intake of seafood was lower than recommended. Regardless, the total weekly frequency of seafood and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 20:5n-3)/DHA-supplement intake predicted the maternal level of DHA (μg/g RBC). Conclusion The period of depletion of the maternal DHA status during pregnancy and lactation, seem to turn to repletion from about six months postpartum towards one year after childbirth, irrespective of RBC concentration of DHA during pregnancy. Seafood and EPA/DHA-supplement intake predicted the DHA levels over time. Trial Registration www.helseforskning.etikkom.no 2009/570/REC, project number: 083.09 PMID:26331947

    In the present study, fifteen novel 3-(6-methoxy-3,4-dihydroquinolin-1(2H)-yl)-1-(piperazin-1-yl)propan-1-one (6a-o) derivatives were designed as inhibitor of HIV-1 RT using ligand based drug design approach and in-silico evaluated for drug-likeness properties. Designed compounds were synthesized, characterized and in-vitro evaluated for RT inhibitory activity against wild HIV-1 RT strain. Among the tested compounds, four compounds (6a, 6b, 6j and 6o) exhibited significant inhibition of HIV-1 RT (IC50⩽10μg/ml). All synthesized compounds were also evaluated for anti-HIV-1 activity as well as cytotoxicity on T lymphocytes, in which compounds 6b and 6l exhibited significant anti-HIV activity (EC50 values 4.72 and 5.45μg/ml respectively) with good safety index. Four compounds (6a, 6b, 6j and 6o) found significantly active against HIV-1 RT in the in-vitro assay were in-silico evaluated against two mutant RT strains as well as one wild strain. Further, titled compounds were evaluated for in-vitro antibacterial (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas putida, Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus) and antifungal (Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger) activities.

    Enzymes that share the ({beta}/{alpha})8-barrel fold catalyze a diverse range of reactions. Many utilize phosphorylated substrates and share a conserved C-terminal ({beta}/a)2-quarter barrel subdomain that provides a binding motif for the dianionic phosphate group. We recently reported functional and structural studies of d-ribulose 5-phosphate 3-epimerase (RPE) from Streptococcus pyogenes that catalyzes the equilibration of the pentulose 5-phosphates d-ribulose 5-phosphate and d-xylulose 5-phosphate in the pentose phosphate pathway [J. Akana, A. A. Fedorov, E. Fedorov, W. R. P. Novack, P. C. Babbitt, S. C. Almo, and J. A. Gerlt (2006) Biochemistry 45, 2493-2503]. We now report functional and structural studies of d-allulose 6-phosphate 3-epimerase (ALSE) from Escherichia coli K-12 that catalyzes the equilibration of the hexulose 6-phosphates d-allulose 6-phosphate and d-fructose 6-phosphate in a catabolic pathway for d-allose. ALSE and RPE prefer their physiological substrates but are promiscuous for each other's substrate. The active sites (RPE complexed with d-xylitol 5-phosphate and ALSE complexed with d-glucitol 6-phosphate) are superimposable (as expected from their 39% sequence identity), with the exception of the phosphate binding motif. The loop following the eighth {beta}-strand in ALSE is one residue longer than the homologous loop in RPE, so the binding site for the hexulose 6-phosphate substrate/product in ALSE is elongated relative to that for the pentulose 5-phosphate substrate/product in RPE. We constructed three single-residue deletion mutants of the loop in ALSE, ?T196, ?S197 and ?G198, to investigate the structural bases for the differing substrate specificities; for each, the promiscuity is altered so that d-ribulose 5-phosphate is the preferred substrate. The changes in kcat/Km are dominated by changes in kcat, suggesting that substrate discrimination results from differential transition state stabilization. In both ALSE and RPE, the phosphate

  15. The Amidohydrolases IAR3 and ILL6 Contribute to Jasmonoyl-Isoleucine Hormone Turnover and Generate 12-Hydroxyjasmonic Acid Upon Wounding in Arabidopsis Leaves*

    Jasmonates (JAs) are a class of signaling compounds that mediate complex developmental and adaptative responses in plants. JAs derive from jasmonic acid (JA) through various enzymatic modifications, including conjugation to amino acids or oxidation, yielding an array of derivatives. The main hormonal signal, jasmonoyl-l-isoleucine (JA-Ile), has been found recently to undergo catabolic inactivation by cytochrome P450-mediated oxidation. We characterize here two amidohydrolases, IAR3 and ILL6, that define a second pathway for JA-Ile turnover during the wound response in Arabidopsis leaves. Biochemical and genetic evidence indicates that these two enzymes cleave the JA-Ile signal, but act also on the 12OH-JA-Ile conjugate. We also show that unexpectedly, the abundant accumulation of tuberonic acid (12OH-JA) after wounding originates partly through a sequential pathway involving (i) conjugation of JA to Ile, (ii) oxidation of the JA-Ile conjugate, and (iii) cleavage under the action of the amidohydrolases. The coordinated actions of oxidative and hydrolytic branches in the jasmonate pathway highlight novel mechanisms of JA-Ile hormone turnover and redefine the dynamic metabolic grid of jasmonate conversion in the wound response.

    In the present work, a new bis heterocyclic compound comprising both the piperidone and thiohydantoin nuclei namely 3-[2,6-bis(4-fluorophenyl)-3-methylpiperidin-4-ylideneamino]-2-thioxoimidazolidin-4-one was synthesised and characterised with the help of mp, elemental analysis, FT-IR, MS and one-dimensional NMR ((1)H and (13)C) spectra. The inhibitory effect of 3-[2,6-bis(4-fluorophenyl)-3-methylpiperidin-4-ylideneamino]-2-thioxoimidazolidin-4-one on 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) induced buccal pouch carcinogenesis was investigated in Syrian male hamsters. All the hamsters that were painted with DMBA on their buccal pouches for 14 weeks developed squamous cell carcinoma. Administration of 3-[2,6-bis(4-fluorophenyl)-3-methylpiperidin-4-ylideneamino]-2-thioxoimidazolidin-4-one effectively suppressed the oral carcinogenesis initiated with the DMBA as revealed by a reduced incidence of neoplasms. Lipid peroxidation, glutathione (GSH) content and the activities of glutathione peroxidase (GPx), glutathione S-transferase (GST) were used to biomonitor the chemopreventive potential of 3-[2,6-bis(4-fluorophenyl)-3-methylpiperidin-4-ylideneamino]-2-thioxoimidazolidin-4-one. Lipid peroxidation was found to be significantly decreased, whereas GSH, GPx, GST and GGT were elevated in the oral mucosa of tumour bearing animals. Our data suggest that 3-[2,6-bis(4-fluorophenyl)-3-methylpiperidin-4-ylideneamino]-2-thioxoimidazolidin-4-one may exert its chemopreventive effects in the oral mucosa by modulation of lipid peroxidation, antioxidants and detoxification systems.

    Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a well-known carcinogen in rodents and concerns exist regarding its potential carcinogenicity in humans. Oxidative metabolites of TCE, such as dichloroacetic acid (DCA) and trichloroacetic acid (TCA), are thought to be hepatotoxic and carcinogenic in mice. The reactive products of glutathione conjugation, such as S-(1,2-dichlorovinyl)-L-cysteine (DCVC), and S-(1,2-dichlorovinyl) glutathione (DCVG), are associated with renal toxicity in rats. Recently, we developed a new analytical method for simultaneous assessment of these TCE metabolites in small-volume biological samples. Since important gaps remain in our understanding of the pharmacokinetics of TCE and its metabolites, we studied a time-course of DCA, TCA, DCVG and DCVG formation and elimination after a single oral dose of 2100 mg/kg TCE in male B6C3F1 mice. Based on systemic concentration-time data, we constructed multi-compartment models to explore the kinetic properties of the formation and disposition of TCE metabolites, as well as the source of DCA formation. We conclude that TCE-oxide is the most likely source of DCA. According to the best-fit model, bioavailability of oral TCE was {approx} 74%, and the half-life and clearance of each metabolite in the mouse were as follows: DCA: 0.6 h, 0.081 ml/h; TCA: 12 h, 3.80 ml/h; DCVG: 1.4 h, 16.8 ml/h; DCVC: 1.2 h, 176 ml/h. In B6C3F1 mice, oxidative metabolites are formed in much greater quantities ({approx} 3600 fold difference) than glutathione-conjugative metabolites. In addition, DCA is produced to a very limited extent relative to TCA, while most of DCVG is converted into DCVC. These pharmacokinetic studies provide insight into the kinetic properties of four key biomarkers of TCE toxicity in the mouse, representing novel information that can be used in risk assessment.

  18. Neuroprotective effects of 3,6'-disinapoyl sucrose through increased BDNF levels and CREB phosphorylation via the CaMKII and ERK1/2 pathway.

    3,6'-Disinapoyl sucrose (DISS) is an oligosaccharide ester natural product originating from the root of wild Polygala tenuifolia. Our previous reports suggested that DISS can have neuroprotective effects and antidepressive activity in rats, at least in part, by increased expression of cyclic AMP response element (CRE)-binding protein (CREB) and its downstream target protein, brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). The aim of the present study was to explore the mechanism of DISS-modulated BDNF and CREB expression. In this study, we confirmed its neuroprotective effect by showing that DISS, at concentrations above 30 μM, could promote the neuron cell viability and protected the glutamate and H2O2-induced toxicity in the human neuroblastoma (SH-SY5Y) cell line. DISS treatment also increased acute (from 15 to 30 min) BDNF expression and CREB phosphorylation in a dose-dependent manner. Pharmacological inhibition of mitogen-activated protein kinase 1 (ERK1/2), CaMKII, and Trk (with U0126, KN93, or K252a, respectively) partially attenuated the stimulatory effect of DISS on phospho-CREB and BDNF expression; however, it was not inhibited by pharmacological inhibition of PKA or PI3K (with H89 and LY294002, respectively). The results are consistent with the effects of DISS on CRE-directed gene transcription, as U0126 and KN-93 treatment also blocked the DISS-induced expression of the CRE-luciferase reporter gene. The results from the present study suggest that DISS-mediated regulation of BDNF gene expression is associated with CREB-mediated transcription of BDNF and upstream activation of ERK1/2 and CaMKII. Finally, DISS may exert neuroprotective and antidepressant effects through these signaling pathways in neuronal cells. PMID:24488601

Thus they are most suitable for enhancing color rendering index and lowering color temperature in phosphor converted white LEDs (pc-WLEDs) with near-UV/blue LED excitation sources. The excitation band edge in the near UV/blue wavelength in the reported phosphor has been attributed to the coordination environment of the transition metal ion (Mo{sup 6+}, W{sup 6+}) and host crystal structure. Furthermore the quantum efficiency of the phosphors has been enhanced by adjusting activator concentration, suitable compositional alloying using substitutional alkaline earth metal cations and charge compensation mechanisms. - Graphical abstract: The charge transfer excitation of orthorhombic Mg{sub 0.6}Ca{sub 2.16}Mo{sub 0.2}W{sub 0.8}O{sub 6}: Eu{sub 0.12}{sup 3+}/Na{sub 0.12}{sup +} is significantly higher than tetragonal CaMoO{sub 4}: Eu{sup 3+} phosphors making Mg{sub 0.6}Ca{sub 2.16}Mo{sub 0.2}W{sub 0.8}O{sub 6}: Eu{sub 0.12}{sup 3+}/Na{sub 0.12}{sup +} prime candidates for fabrication of warm white phosphor-converted LEDs. - Highlights: • LED excitable Mg{sub 0.6}Ca{sub 2.16}Mo{sub 0.2}W{sub 0.8}O{sub 6}: Eu{sub 0.12}{sup 3+}/Na{sub 0.12}{sup +} phosphors were synthesized. • These phosphors are 10 times more intense than CaMoO{sub 4}: Eu{sup 3+} red phosphors. • Their intensity and efficiency were enhanced by materials optimization techniques. • Such techniques include compositional alloying, charge compensation, etc.

    An electron deficient fullerene B12C6N6 is studied by using ab initio calculations. The structure is generated by replacing N with C in the B12N12 cage to ensure only B-C and B-N bonds are formed. All the possible isomers are optimized and the low energy structures are determined. C and N atoms in the low energy isomers are inclined to segregate and form B2C2 and B2N2 squares. Natural bond analysis shows that the atomic orbitals of B, C and N in this cage hybrid approximately in sp2.3 and then form B-C and B-N bonds. The 2p orbitals perpendicular to the cage surface are partially occupied and the molecular orbitals formed by these orbitals are highly delocalized. The natural charge on N is about -1.17 in both B12N12 and B12C6N6, and the charge on C is -0.72 to -0.60. The molecular orbital compositions show that the B-N bonds are the same in B12N12 and B12C6N6, and the B-C bonds possess stronger covalent character. The HOMO of B12C6N6 is formed by 2p of B and C, and the LUMO is formed by 2p of C. The energy gap of C24, B12N12 and B12C6N6 is 2.52, 6.84 and 3.22 eV, respectively.

    Materials at high pressures and temperatures are of great current interest for warm dense matter physics, planetary sciences, and inertial fusion energy research. Shock-compression equation-of-state data and optical reflectivities of the fluid dense oxide, Gd3Ga5O12 (GGG), were measured at extremely high pressures up to 2.6 TPa (26 Mbar) generated by high-power laser irradiation and magnetically-driven hypervelocity impacts. Above 0.75 TPa, the GGG Hugoniot data approach/reach a universal linear line of fluid metals, and the optical reflectivity most likely reaches a constant value indicating that GGG undergoes a crossover from fluid semiconductor to poor metal with minimum metallic conductivity (MMC). These results suggest that most fluid compounds, e.g., strong planetary oxides, reach a common state on the universal Hugoniot of fluid metals (UHFM) with MMC at sufficiently extreme pressures and temperatures. The systematic behaviors of warm dense fluid would be useful benchmarks for developing theoretical equation-of-state and transport models in the warm dense matter regime in determining computational predictions.

    Materials at high pressures and temperatures are of great current interest for warm dense matter physics, planetary sciences, and inertial fusion energy research. Shock-compression equation-of-state data and optical reflectivities of the fluid dense oxide, Gd3Ga5O12 (GGG), were measured at extremely high pressures up to 2.6 TPa (26 Mbar) generated by high-power laser irradiation and magnetically-driven hypervelocity impacts. Above 0.75 TPa, the GGG Hugoniot data approach/reach a universal linear line of fluid metals, and the optical reflectivity most likely reaches a constant value indicating that GGG undergoes a crossover from fluid semiconductor to poor metal with minimum metallic conductivity (MMC). These results suggest that most fluid compounds, e.g., strong planetary oxides, reach a common state on the universal Hugoniot of fluid metals (UHFM) with MMC at sufficiently extreme pressures and temperatures. The systematic behaviors of warm dense fluid would be useful benchmarks for developing theoretical equation-of-state and transport models in the warm dense matter regime in determining computational predictions.

    Quasi-one-dimensional magnetic materials provide the opportunity to test rigorously models of simple, interacting many-body systems. We present triple-axis neutron scattering measurements of the temperature and magnetic field dependence of spin correlations in the quasi-1D S=1/2 Heisenberg antiferromagnet Cu(C_6D_5COO)2 \\cdot3D_2O. We have measured the temperature evolution of the spin-spin correlation length κ over the temperature range 0.1J < k_BT < 0.8J, where J is the nearest-neighbor coupling strength. Measurements of S^zz(q = π , ω , T) are found to be described by a finite temperature field theory.(H. J. Schulz, Phys. Rev. B 34), 6372 (1986). At high magnetic fields, new features are observed close to q=π consistent with predictions of non-classical behavior.(N. Ishimura and H. Shiba, Prog. Theor. Phys. Jpn. 57), 1862 (1977).^,(G.

    The promising green oxynitride phosphor, Ba3Si6O12N2:Eu(2+), was synthesized at 1350 °C for 5 hours under a reducing N2/H2 (5%) atmosphere by using the solid-state reaction method. The phase purity was investigated by varying the nominal compositions, and the pure phase was achieved by carefully controlling the Si/Ba and O/Ba ratios. The phosphor displayed a broad excitation band spanning from the ultraviolet (UV) to the blue spectral region, and showed a single symmetrical emission band peaking at 525 nm with a full width at half maximum (FWHM) of ∼ 68 nm. The as-prepared green phosphor exhibited a small thermal quenching, which remained 90% of the initial emission intensity when measured at 200 °C. The internal and external quantum efficiencies measured under 450 nm excitation were 68 and 38%, respectively. Color temperature-tunable white LEDs with a high color rendering index of Ra = 88-94 were attained by combining the prepared green phosphor and a red phosphor Sr2Si5N8:Eu(2+) with a blue LED chip.

    In 2006-2008, we tested (3Z,6Z,9Z,12Z,15Z)-pentacosapentaene (pentaene) with the pheromone components (Z)-11-hexadecenyl acetate (Z11-16:Ac) and (Z)-9-tetradecenyl acetate (Z9-14:Ac), as sex attractants for four sympatric species of coneworms, Dioryctria Zeller (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) in slash (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) and loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seed orchards in Georgia and Louisiana, respectively. The addition ofpentaene increased catches of male southern pine coneworm, Dioryctria amatella (Hulst), in wing traps baited with Z11-16:Ac, whereas catches of Dioryctria disclusa Heinrich in traps baited with Z9-14:Ac were unaffected by the addition of pentaene. The effect of pentaene on male Dioryctria merkeli Mutuura & Munroe was inconsistent. In 2006, pentaene seemed to inhibit attraction of D. merkeli to traps baited with Z9-14:Ac, whereas in a subsequent trial in 2008, moths were equally attracted to Z9-14:Ac with or without the pentaene. We caught too few Dioryctria clarioralis (Walker) in any experiment for meaningful analyses. Our field results with pentaene and the unresolved complexity of the taxonomy, ecology, and management of southern coneworms support the need for a comprehensive examination of the chemical ecology of Dioryctria spp. PMID:20857730

    A dedicated, GC-based analytical system is presented which allows detection of four anthropogenic trace gases (SF6, SF5CF3, CFC-12 and Halon-1301) in a single water sample, with detection limits and measurement uncertainties sufficiently low to employ them as quantitative indicators of groundwater age. The gases dissolved in water are extracted in the field using the method based on a dynamic head-space concept. In the laboratory, the investigated gases are cryogenically enriched, separated and measured using an electron capture detector. Reproducibility of the analyses is in the order of 2-5 %. The investigated tracers were measured in several production wells located in the recharge area of an intensively exploited aquifer in southern Poland. While the piston-flow ages of groundwater in the investigated wells revealed internal consistency, they appeared to be generally smaller than the ages derived from time series of tritium content in those wells, interpreted by lumped-parameter models. This difference stems mainly from significantly longer travel times of tritium through the unsaturated zone, when compared to the gaseous tracers being used. The results of this study highlight the benefits of using multiple tracing in quantifying timescales of groundwater flow in shallow aquifer systems. PMID:26863003

    Autophagy is defined as an evolutionarily conserved process responsible for degradation of the cytoplasmic components including protein aggregates via the lysosomal machinery. Increasing evidence has linked defective autophagic degradation of protein aggregates with the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders, and it is suggested that promotion of autophagy is regarded as a potential therapeutic for these diseases including Parkinson's disease (PD). Here we identified, 3-anhydro-6-hydroxy-ophiobolin A (X15-2), an ophiobolin derivative from Bipolaris oryzae that can strongly induce autophagic degradation of α-synuclein, the major constituent of Lewy bodies. We showed that X15-2 induced autophagy is dependent on both Beclin1 and Beclin2. Knockout of ATG5 by CRISPER/Cas9 prevented X15-2 induced autophagy and degradation of α-synuclein. Mechanistically, we showed that X15-2 induces ROS and the activation of JNK signaling for the autophagic degradation of α-synuclein in PC12 cells. PMID:25748161

    6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) is usually thought to cross cell membrane through dopamine uptake transporters, to inhibit mitochondrial respiration and to generate intracellular reactive oxygen species. In this study, we show that the anti-oxidants catalase, glutathione and N-acetyl-cysteine are able to reverse the toxic effects of 6-OHDA. These two latter compounds considerably slow down 6-OHDA oxidation in a cell free system suggesting a direct chemical interaction with the neurotoxin. Moreover, desipramine does not protect PC12 cells and 6-OHDA is also strongly toxic towards non-catecholaminergic C6 and NIH3T3 cells. These results thus suggest that 6-OHDA toxicity on PC12 cells mainly involves an extracellular process. PMID:10754220

    Pressure induced broadening and spectral shift rates have been resolved for the two ground state hyperfine lines in the 52S1/2 →62P1/2 and 52S1/2 →62P3/2 of 85Rb and 87Rb in the presence of 5-50 Torr of helium, argon, methane, and ethane. Broadening rates averaged over the hyperfine components, for the P1/2 transition for He, Ar, CH4, and C2H6 are 60.2, 45.2, 63.8, and 60.4 MHz/Torr, respectively and 50.4, 42.4, 62.0, and 60.4 MHz/Torr for the P3/2 transition. Average spectral shift rates for the P1/2 transition were found to be 15.7, -11.5, -18.1, and -19.9 MHz/Torr for He, Ar, CH4, and C2H6, respectively, and 3.1, -12.6,-21.8, and -19.9 MHz/Torr for the P3/2 transition. Deviation in broadening and shift rates between hyperfine lines was found to be as high as 16 and 7.6 MHz/Torr respectively.

    IL-6 has a dual role in bone remodelling. The ERK1/2 pathway partially upregulated IL-6 secretion in osteocyte-like MLO-Y4 cells exposed to CCF. We have now investigated the possible role of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt signalling pathway in the CCF-induced IL-6 expression. MLO-Y4 cells were treated with CCF 2,000 µstrain, 2 Hz, or 10, 30 min, 1, 3 and 6 h. IL-6 expression, Akt and ERK1/2 and PI3K/Akt phosphorylation were determined by RT-PCR, ELISA and Western blotting. Inhibition of PI3K/Akt with LY294002 or ERK1/2 with PD98059 significantly attenuated IL-6 upregulation, and IL-6 expression was abolished by inhibiting both pathways. Inhibition of one pathway downregulated the other's phosphorylation level. In conclusion, concomitant activation of PI3K/Akt and ERK1/2 pathways mediated IL-6 expression in MLO-Y4 cells under CCF.

    Partitioning and molecular dynamics of 2,2,6,6,-tetramethylpiperedine-1-oxyl (TEMPO) nitroxide radicals in large unilamellar liposomes (LUV) composed from 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphatidylcholine were investigated by using very high frequency electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. Experiments carried out at a microwave frequency of 94.3 GHz completely resolved the TEMPO EPR spectrum in the aqueous and hydrocarbon phases. An accurate computer simulation method combined with Levenberg-Marquardt optimization was used to analyze the TEMPO EPR spectra in both phases. Spectral parameters extracted from the simulations gave the actual partitioning of the TEMPO probe between the LUV hydrocarbon and aqueous phases and allowed analysis of picosecond rotational dynamics of the probe in the LUV hydrocarbon phase. In very high frequency EPR experiments, phase transitions in the LUV-TEMPO system were observed as sharp changes in both partitioning and rotational correlation times of the TEMPO probe. The phase transition temperatures (40.5 +/- 0.2 and 32.7 +/- 0.5 degrees C) are in agreement with previously reported differential scanning microcalorimetry data. Spectral line widths were analyzed by using existing theoretical expressions for motionally narrowed nitroxide spectra. It was found that the motion of the small, nearly spherical, TEMPO probe can be well described by anisotropic Brownian diffusion in isotropic media and is not restricted by the much larger hydrocarbon chains existing in ripple structure (P beta') or fluid bilayer structure (L alpha) phases.

Time series of tracer concentrations in the sampled boreholes were interpreted with the aid of lumped-parameter models. In parallel, the arrival times of tracers to the selected wells were calculated with the aid of 3D flow and transport model available for the studied groundwater system and compared with the RTD functions obtained from lumped-parameter modeling.

    1,3-Butadiene (BD) is an environmental and occupational toxicant classified as a human carcinogen. It is oxidized by cytochrome P450 monooxygenases to 1,2-epoxy-3-butene (EB), which alkylates DNA. BD exposures lead to large numbers of mutations at A:T base pairs even though alkylation of guanines is more prevalent, suggesting that one or more adenine adducts of BD play a role in BD-mediated genotoxicity. However, the etiology of BD-mediated genotoxicity at adenine remains poorly understood. EB alkylates the N6 exocyclic nitrogen of adenine to form N6-(hydroxy-3-buten-1-yl)-2′-dA ((2S)-N6-HB-dA) adducts (TretyakovaN., LinY., SangaiahR., UptonP. B., and SwenbergJ. A. (1997) Carcinogenesis18, 137−1479054600). The structure of the (2S)-N6-HB-dA adduct has been determined in the 5′-d(C1G2G3A4C5Y6A7G8A9A10G11)-3′:5′-d(C12T13T14C15T16T17G18T19 C20C21G22)-3′ duplex [Y = (2S)-N6-HB-dA] containing codon 61 (underlined) of the human N-ras protooncogene, from NMR spectroscopy. The (2S)-N6-HB-dA adduct was positioned in the major groove, such that the butadiene moiety was oriented in the 3′ direction. At the Cα carbon, the methylene protons of the modified nucleobase Y6 faced the 5′ direction, which placed the Cβ carbon in the 3′ direction. The Cβ hydroxyl group faced toward the solvent, as did carbons Cγ and Cδ. The Cβ hydroxyl group did not form hydrogen bonds with either T16O4 or T17O4. The (2S)-N6-HB-dA nucleoside maintained the anti conformation about the glycosyl bond, and the modified base retained Watson–Crick base pairing with the complementary base (T17). The adduct perturbed stacking interactions at base pairs C5:G18, Y6:T17, and A7:T16 such that the Y6 base did not stack with its 5′ neighbor C5, but it did with its 3′ neighbor A7. The complementary thymine T17 stacked well with both 5′ and 3′ neighbors T16 and G18. The presence of the (2S)-N6-HB-dA resulted in a 5 °C reduction in the Tm of the duplex, which is attributed to less

  2. Improved measurement of the hyperfine structure of the laser cooling level 4f^{12}(^3H_6)5d_{5/2}6s^2 (J=9/2) in {}^{169}_{ 69}{{Tm}}

    We report on an improved measurement of the hyperfine constant of the 4f^{12}(^3 H_6)5d_{5/2}6s^2 (J=9/2) excited state of {}^{169}_{ 69}{{Tm}} which is involved in the second-stage laser cooling of Tm. To measure the absolute value of the hyperfine splitting interval, we used Doppler-free frequency modulation saturated absorption spectroscopy of Tm atoms in a vapor cell. The sign of the hyperfine constant was determined independently by spectroscopy of laser-cooled Tm atoms. The hyperfine constant of the level was determined to be A_J=-422.112(32) {MHz} from the energy difference between the two hyperfine sublevels, -2110.56(16) {MHz}. In relation to the saturated absorption measurement, we quantitatively treat contributions of various mechanisms to the line broadening and shift. We consider power broadening in the case when Zeeman sublevels of atomic levels are taken into account. We also discuss the line broadening due to frequency modulation and relative intensities of transitions in saturated absorption experiments.

    The efficient green phosphor Ba(3)Si(6)O(12)N(2):Eu(2+) and its solid-solution series Ba(3-x)Sr(x)Si(6)O(12)N(2) (with x approximately = 0.4 and 1) were synthesized in a radio-frequency furnace under nitrogen atmosphere at temperatures up to 1425 degrees C. The crystal structure (Ba(3)Si(6)O(12)N(2), space group P3 (no. 147), a = 7.5218(1), c = 6.4684(1) A, wR2 = 0.048, Z = 1) has been solved and refined on the basis of both single-crystal and powder X-ray diffraction data. Ba(3)Si(6)O(12)N(2):Eu(2+) is a layer-like oxonitridosilicate and consists of vertex-sharing SiO(3)N-tetrahedra forming 6er- and 4er-rings as fundamental building units (FBU). The nitrogen atoms are connected to three silicon atoms (N3), while the oxygen atoms are either terminally bound (O1) or bridge two silicon atoms (O2) (numbers in superscripted square brackets after atoms indicate the coordination number of the atom in question). Two crystallographically independent Ba(2+) sites are situated between the silicate layers. Luminescence investigations have shown that Ba(3)Si(6)O(12)N(2):Eu(2+) exhibits excellent luminescence properties (emission maximum at approximately 527 nm, full width at half maximum (FWHM) of approximately 65 nm, low thermal quenching), which provides potential for industrial application in phosphor-converted light-emitting diodes (pc-LEDs). In-situ high-pressure and high-temperature investigations with synchrotron X-ray diffraction indicate decomposition of Ba(3)Si(6)O(12)N(2) under these conditions. The band gap of Ba(3)Si(6)O(12)N(2):Eu(2+) was measured to be 7.05+/-0.25 eV by means of X-ray emission spectroscopy (XES) and X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy (XANES). This agrees well with calculated band gap of 6.93 eV using the mBJ-GGA potential. Bonding to the Ba atoms is highly ionic with only the 4p(3/2) orbitals participating in covalent bonds. The valence band consists primarily of N and O p states and the conduction band contains primarily Ba d and f states

    1979-01-01

    A Sialon of formula Si2.55Al0.6O0.72N3.52 was made from ball-milled alpha-Si3N4, AIN, and SiO2 by sintering the powder compacts at 1760 C for 4 hours in stagnant nitrogen. This Sialon had an average modulus of rupture ranging from 404 megapascals (58.6 ksi) at room temperature to 254 megapascals (36.8 ksi) at 1400 C. Oxidation tests at 1400 C in air showed it to have a parabolic oxidation rate constant less than or equal to 2.8x10 to the -10th power sq g/cm4 hr, which is smaller than that of any other Si3N4-base ceramic reported in the literature.

    The phase diagram in the Li2O-BeO-B2O3 system has been systematically investigated by the methods of visual polythermal analysis, spontaneous crystallization, and X-ray diffraction. Three new alkaline beryllium borates, namely, LiBeBO3, Li6Be3B4O12, and Li8Be5B6O18, were synthesized with molten fluxes based on Li2O-B2O3 solvent in this system. All of the materials are centrosymmetric. The similarity of the fundamental building block of the title compounds has been compared. Thermal analysis and powder XRD studies were applied to determine phase relation and their incongruent melting behavior. The UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy demonstrated that the UV cutoff edges of the aforementioned materials are all below 200 nm. PMID:24527663

    Herbertsmithite ZnCu3(OD)6Cl2 is one of the most promising examples for a quantum spin liquid state. Despite the remarkable absence of long range magnetic order down to at least 50mK, understanding the magnetic properties of ZnCu3(OD)6Cl2 remains a challenge. This is mainly due to the difficulty in locating the defects, and in understanding the possible role of defects in the physical properties of this material. We have investigated the local magnetic and lattice environment of ZnCu3(OD)6Cl2 single crystalsootnotetextT. H. Han et al., Phys. Rev. B 83, 100402(R) (2011) using NMR techniquesootnotetextT. Imai et al., Phys. Rev. B 84, 020411(R) (2011); see also Phys. Rev. Lett. 100, 077203 (2008). With successful identification of ^2D NMR signals arising from the nearest neighbors of Cu^2+ defects substituting Zn, we find that 14(2)% of Zn sites are occupied by these weakly interacting Cu^2+ defect spins, which contribute to the large Curie-Weiss enhancement of bulk susceptibility at low temperatures. We then discuss the key aspects of nuclear spin-lattice relaxation rate 1/T1 measured near the defect and intrinsic sites.

    Au-doped Bi{sub 3.6}Eu{sub 0.4}Ti{sub 3}O{sub 12} (BET) thin films were prepared on fused silica and Pt/Ti/SiO{sub 2}/Si substrates by a chemical solution deposition method. The existence of Au nanoparticles (NPs) has been confirmed by X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscope analysis. Enhanced photoluminescence (PL) of Eu{sup 3+} ions was obtained in a wide range of Au doping level. Role of the Au NPs in the PL enhancement was investigated by means of optical absorption, excitation, and emission spectra, as well as decay lifetime measurements. The results indicated that the intra-4f transition of Eu{sup 3+} ions can be intensively activated by the coupling of the charge transfer band of BET with the {sup 5}D{sub 0} state of Eu{sup 3+} ions. The influence of Au NPs on the PL properties of Eu{sup 3+} ions in the present thin films was attributed to the band bending at Au/BET interface and the localized surface plasma resonance absorption of Au NPs in the visible light region. The dielectric and ferroelectric properties of Au-doped BET thin films were investigated as well.

    Benzene-noble gas complexes were one of the earliest topics of interest in spectroscopic investigation of van der Waals (vdW) complexes. Smalley et al. observed C_6H_6-(He)1,2 vdW complexes in the late 1970s by means of electronic spectroscopy. A recent study on the same species was done by M. Hayashi et al. Here, we present the infrared observation of C_6D_6-Rg_n (n=1,2) with the rare gas being He, Ne, or Ar, in the regions of νb{12} fundamental band of C_6D_6 (˜2289 wn) and the νb{2} + νb{13} combination band (˜2275 wn) which are coupled by a Fermi resonance. The spectra were observed at a resolution of 60 MHz using a tunable optical parametric oscillator to probe a pulsed supersonic-jet expansion from a slit nozzle. In the case of C_6D_6-Rg dimers, the spectra were assigned to a symmetric top with C6v symmetry with the rare gas atom being located on the C6 symmetry axis. To observe C_6D_6-Rg_2 trimers, the nozzle was cooled using a closed-cycle methanol refrigerator and the spectra were simulated with a rotational temperature of 1.3K. The spectra of the C_6D_6-Rg_2 trimers were in agreement with a D6h symmetry structure, where the rare gas atoms are positioned above and below the C_6D_6 plane. Data analysis and observation are presently ongoing. S. M. Beck, M. G. Liverman, D. L. Monts and R. E. Smalley, J. Chem. Phys. 70, 232 (1979). M. Hayashi, Y. Ohshima, Chem. Phys. 419, 131 (2013).

    3,4-Dihydro-2H,6H-pyrimido[1,2-c][1,3]benzothiazin-6-imine is an antiretroviral agent, which can act against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, but the mechanism of action of pyrimido[1,2-c][1,3]benzothiazin-6-imine derivatives remained ambiguous. In this study, multiple linear regression (MLR) was applied to establish a quite reliable model with the squared correlation coefficient (R2) of 0.8079. We also used chemical information descriptors based on the simplified molecular input line entry system (SMILES) to get a better model with R2 of 0.9086 for the training set, and R2 of 0.8031 for the test set. Molecular docking was utilized to provide more useful information between pyrimido[1,2-c][1,3]benzothiazin-6-imine derivatives and HIV-1 protease, such as active site, binding mode and important residues. Molecular dynamics simulation was employed to further validate the docking results. This work may lead to a better understanding of the mechanism of action and aid to design novel and more potent anti-HIV drugs.

    Mitragynine is a major indole alkaloid isolated from the Thai medicinal plant Mitragyna speciosa that has opium-like properties, although its chemical structure is quite different from that of morphine. We attempted to develop novel analgesics derived from mitragynine, and thus synthesized the ethylene glycol-bridged and C10-fluorinated derivative of mitragynine, MGM-9 [(E)-methyl 2-(3-ethyl-7a,12a-(epoxyethanoxy)-9-fluoro-1,2,3,4,6,7,12,12b-octahydro-8-methoxyindolo[2,3-a]quinolizin-2-yl)-3-methoxyacrylate]. We hypothesized that a dual-acting mu- and kappa-opioid agonist could produce potent antinociceptive effects with fewer rewarding effects compared with mu agonists. In this study, MGM-9 exhibited high affinity for mu- and kappa-opioid receptors with Ki values of 7.3 and 18 nM, respectively. MGM-9 showed a potent opioid agonistic effect, and its effects were meditated by mu- and kappa-opioid receptor mechanisms in in vitro assays. Subcutaneous and oral administration of MGM-9 produced potent antinociceptive effects in mouse tail-flick, hot-plate, and writhing tests. When administered orally, the antinociceptive effect of MGM-9 was seven to 22 times more potent than that of morphine. The antinociceptive effects of MGM-9 were mediated by both mu- and kappa-opioid receptors. Subcutaneous administration of MGM-9 twice daily for 5 days led to antinociceptive tolerance. In the gastrointestinal transit study, MGM-9 inhibited gastrointestinal transit, but its effect was weaker than that of morphine at equi-antinociceptive doses. Furthermore, MGM-9 induced less hyperlocomotion and fewer rewarding effects than morphine. The rewarding effect of MGM-9 was blocked by a mu antagonist and enhanced by a kappa antagonist. Taken together, the results suggest that MGM-9 is a promising novel analgesic that has a stronger antinociceptive effect and weaker adverse effects than morphine. PMID:18550129

    Zintl phases are compounds that have shown promise for thermoelectric applications. The title solid–solution Zintl compounds were prepared from the elements as single crystals using a tin flux for compositions x = 0, 1, 2, and 3. Eu11Cd6Sb12–xAsx (x < 3) crystallize isostructurally in the centrosymmetric monoclinic space group C2/m (no. 12, Z = 2) as the Sr11Cd6Sb12 structure type (Pearson symbol mC58). Efforts to make the As compositions for x exceeding ~3 resulted in structures other than the Sr11Cd6Sb12 structure type. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction indicates that As does not randomly substitute for Sb in the structure but is site specific for each composition. The amount of As determined by structural refinement was verified by electron microprobe analysis. Electronic structures and energies calculated for various model structures of Eu11Cd6Sb10As2 (x = 2) indicated that the preferred As substitution pattern involves a mixture of three of the six pnicogen sites in the asymmetric unit. In addition, As substitution at the Pn4 site opens an energy gap at the Fermi level, whereas substitution at the other five pnicogen sites remains semimetallic with a pseudo gap. Thermoelectric properties of these compounds were measured on hot-pressed, fully densified pellets. Samples show exceptionally low lattice thermal conductivities from room temperature to 775 K: 0.78–0.49 W/mK for x = 0; 0.72–0.53 W/mK for x = 1; and 0.70–0.56 W/mK for x = 2. Eu11Cd6Sb12 shows a high p-type Seebeck coefficient (from +118 to 153 μ V/K) but also high electrical resistivity (6.8 to 12.8 mΩ·cm). The value of zT reaches 0.23 at 774 K. The properties of Eu11Cd6Sb12–xAsx are interpreted in discussion with the As site substitution.

    With the goal of preparing an {eta}{sup 6}-iridathiabenzene complex of Co{sub 4}(CO){sub 12}, the ring-opened iridathiabenzene complex Cp{sup *}Ir(C,S-2,5-Me{sub 2}T) (1), where 2,5-Me{sub 2}T is 2,5-dimethylthiophene, was reacted with Co{sub 4}(CO){sub 12}, Co{sub 2}(CO){sub 8}, and ({eta}{sup 6}-C{sub 6}H{sub 3}Me{sub 3})Co{sub 4}(CO){sub 9}. Only in the reaction of ({eta}{sup 6}-C{sub 6}H{sub 3}Me{sub 3})Co{sub 4}(CO){sub 9} under mild conditions (35-40{degree}C) was the {eta}{sup 6}-iridathiabenzene cluster [{eta}{sup 6}-Cp{sup *}Ir(C,S-2,5-Me{sub 2}T)]Co{sub 4}(CO){sub 9} (7) obtained. At higher temperatures, the reaction yielded Cp{sup *}Ir({eta}{sup 4}-2,5-Me{sub 2}T.Co{sub 4}(CO){sub 11}) (6), in which the 2,5-Me{sub 2}T ligand is coordinated through its diene to the Ir and through its sulfur to a Co of the cluster. Reactions of Co{sub 4}(CO){sub 12} and Co{sub 2}(CO){sub 8} with 1 yielded Cp{sup *}Ir({eta}{sup 4}-2,5-Me{sub 2}T.Co{sub 4})(CO){sub 11} (2), an isomer of 6, which converts to the desulfurized linear tetranuclear cluster [Cp{sup *}Ir(C(Me)=CHCH=C(Me))({mu}-CO){sub 2}Co]{sub 2} (3); this species contains bridging iridacyclopentadiene units. Cluster 3 has a structure with a Co{sub 2}({mu}-Co){sub 2} core and Cp{sup *}Ir(C(Me)=CHCH=C(Me))(CO) (4) end groups. In fact, 3 can be prepared form Co{sub 2}(CO){sub 8} and 4.

    2016-03-01

    In the framework of the double folding model, we used the α+2n and di-triton configurations for the nuclear matter density of the 6He nucleus to generate the real part of the optical potential for the system 6He+12C. As an alternative, we also use the high energy approximation to generate the optical potential for the same system. The derived potentials are employed to analyze the elastic scattering differential cross section at energies of 38.3, 41.6 and 82.3 MeV/u. For the imaginary part of the potential we adopt the squared Woods-Saxon form. The obtained results are compared with the corresponding measured data as well as with available results in the literature. The calculated total reaction cross sections are investigated and compared with the optical limit Glauber model description.

  6. Enhancement of α5-Containing Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid TypeAReceptors by the Nonimmobilizer 1,2-Dichlorohexafluorocyclobutane (F6) is Abolished by the β3(N265M) Mutation

    2014-01-01

    Background Modulation of γ-aminobutyric acid type A receptors (GABAARs) by general anesthetics may contribute to their ability to produce amnesia. Receptors containing α5 subunits, which mediate tonic and slow synaptic inhibition, are co-localized with β3 and γ2 subunits in dendritic layers of the hippocampus and are sensitive to low (amnestic) concentrations of anesthetics. Since α5 and β3 subunits influence performance in hippocampus-dependent learning tasks in the presence and absence of general anesthetics, and the experimental inhaled drug 1,2-dichlorohexafluorocyclobutane (F6) impairs hippocampus-dependent learning, we hypothesized that F6 would modulate receptors that incorporate α5 and β3 subunits. We hypothesized further that the β3(N265M) mutation, which controls receptor modulation by general anesthetics, would similarly influence modulation by F6. Methods Using whole-cell electrophysiological recording techniques, we tested the effects of F6 at concentrations ranging from 4 μM to 16 μM on receptors expressed in human embryonic kidney293 cells. We measured drug modulation of wild type α5β3 and α5β3γ2L GABAARs, and receptors harboring the β3(N265M) mutation. We also tested the effects of F6 on α1β2γ2L receptors, which were reported previously to be insensitive to this drug when expressed in Xenopus oocytes. Results F6 enhanced the responses of wild type α5β3γ2L but not α1β2γ2L receptors to low concentrations of GABA in a concentration-dependent manner. Receptors that incorporated the mutant β3(N265M) subunit were insensitive to F6. When applied together with a high concentration of GABA, F6 blocked currents through α5β3 but not α5β3γ2L receptors. F6 did not alter deactivation of α5β3γ2L receptors after brief, high concentration pulses of GABA. Conclusions The nonimmobilizer F6 modulates GABAARs in a manner that depends on subunit composition and on mode of receptor activation by GABA, supporting a possible role for α5

The treatment of a slurry of [Sn(edt)(2)] and excess [Et(4)N]Br with [Cu(MeCN)(4)][PF(6)] in the presence of PPh(3) afforded a pentanuclear compound, [Sn(edt)(2)(mu-Br)(2)(mu(3)-Br)(2)(CuPPh(3))(4)] (2), which comprises two [(CuPPh(3))(2)(mu-Br)](+) fragments symmetrically ligating an octahedral trans-[Sn(edt)(2)Br(2)](2-) moiety via the sulfur and bromide atoms. Reaction of [Sn(edt)(2)] with [Cu(MeCN)(4)][PF(6)] and PPh(3) in a mixed MeCN/CH(2)Cl(2) solution yielded a novel octanuclear compound, [{Sn(edt)(2)}(3)(mu-OH)(3)Cu(5)(PPh(3))(8)][PF(6)](2) (3), which may be described as a triangular [{Sn(edt)(2)}(3)(mu-OH)(3)](3-) core chelated by three [Cu(PPh(3))(2)](+) species and capped by two [Cu(PPh(3))](+) species. The luminescent properties of compounds 1, 2, and 3 were investigated in a CH(2)Cl(2) solution at room temperature. Upon excitation at lambda > 360 nm, these compounds are luminescent in CH(2)Cl(2) solution with emissions having maxima at 422, 515, and 494 nm, respectively. PMID:19746999

    The title purine derivative, C7H7N5O3, is an adduct of guanine with glyoxal. In the mol­ecule, the di­hydro­imidazole ring adopts a twisted conformation on the C—C bond, and the two hydroxyl groups lie on opposite sides of the mean plane of the ring. In the crystal, the mol­ecules are linked by N—H⋯O, O—H⋯N and N—H⋯N hydrogen bonds forming a three-dimensional framework. The crystal packing is reinforced by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds and by offset π–π stacking of the purine ring systems of inversion related mol­ecules [inter­centroid distance = 3.4839 (12) Å].

    Integrase (IN) is an essential viral enzyme required for HIV-1 replication, which has been targeted by anti-AIDS therapeutics. Integrase strand transfer inhibitors (INSTIs) represent a new class of antiretroviral agents developed for the treatment of HIV-1 infections. Important structural features that are shared by many INSTIs include a coplanar arrangement of three heteroatoms that chelate two catalytic Mg(2+) ions in the IN active site and a linked halophenyl ring that binds in the hydrophobic pocket formed by the complex of IN with viral DNA. We recently reported bicyclic 6,7-dihydroxyoxoisoindolin-1-one-based IN inhibitors. In the current study, we modified these inhibitors in three ways. First, we increased the spacer length between the metalchelating triad and the halophenyl group. Second, we replaced the indoline [5,6] bicycle with a fused dihydroxyisoquinolinones [6,6] ring system. Finally, we prepared bis-6,7-dihydroxyisoindolin-1-one-4-sulfonamides as dimeric HIV-1 IN inhibitors. These new analogues showed low micromolar inhibitory potency in in vitro HIV-1 integrase assays.

    Smad6, one of the inhibitory Smads, plays an important role in transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-β1)-mediated negative regulation of pro-inflammatory signaling. In this study, we found that bacterial endotoxin lipopolysaccharide (LPS) inhibits TGF-β1-induced expression of Smad6 in RAW264.7 cells. This repression was accompanied by increased Smad3 linker phosphorylation at Thr-179 and Ser-208 and was dependent on ERK1/2 activity via the TLR4-IRAK1-linked signaling cascade. The expression of a mutant Smad3, that lacks the phosphorylation sites in the linker regions, significantly reversed the inhibitory effect of LPS on TGF-β1-induced Smad6 expression and its anti-inflammatory capacity. Collectively, our findings show how LPS pro-inflammatory signal antagonizes the anti-inflammatory activity of TGF-β1. PMID:21295571

    Constrained cyclam derivatives have been found to exhibit anti-HIV effects. The strength of binding to the CXCR4 receptor correlates with anti-HIV activity. The conformation of the macrocyclic compound is very important for co-receptor recognition. Therefore, knowledge of the conformation and crystal packing of macrocycles has become important in developing new highly effective anti-HIV drugs. Structural modifications of N-functionalized polyaza macrocyclic compounds have been achieved using various methods. A new synthesis affording single crystals of the title tetraazapentacyclo[16.4.0.1(2,17).1(6,13).0(7,12)]tetracosane macrocycle, C22H40N4, is reported. Formaldehyde reacts readily at room temperature with the tetraazatricyclo[16.4.0.0(2,17)]docosane precursor to yield a macropolycycle containing two five-membered rings. Characterization by elemental, spectroscopic and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analyses shows that the asymmetric unit contains half of a centrosymmetric molecule. The molecular structure shows a trans conformation for the two methylene bridges owing to molecular symmetry. The crystal structure is stabilized by intramolecular C-H...N hydrogen bonds. NMR and IR spectroscopic properties support the methylene-bridged macrocyclic structure. PMID:27585935

    With an aim to obtain potent bronchodilators, two series of 5-alkyl-2,3-dihydroimidazo[1,2-c]quinazolines (Va-1), 2,3-dihydroimidazo[1,2-c]quinazolin-5-(6H)-thiones (VIIIa-d) and their oxo-analogues (IXa-d) have been designed. The compounds Va-1 were synthesized by two alternative routes. The former (Method A) based on the dehydrocyclization of 4-(1-hydroxyethyl)-aminoquinazoline (IV) and the latter (Method B) involves the usage of 2-aminobenzonitrile (VI) which on reaction with ethylenediamine leads to the formation of the key intermediate 2-(2-aminophenyl)-4,5-dihydro-1H-imidazoles (VII). Finally the intermediate VII on condensation with different acidanhydrides yielded the title compound V. In general method-A resulted the compound V in quantitatively higher yields. 2,3-Dihydroimidazo[1,2-c]quinazolin-5 (6H)-thiones (VIII) were obtained by condensing VII with carbon disulfide and a further oxidation of VIII gave their corresponding oxo-analogues (IX). The title compounds V, VIII and IX were evaluated for their bronchodilator activity using in vitro and in vivo (standard animal models) methods. All the test compounds exhibited bronchodilatory activity. The structure activity relationship studies indicated good correlation between the nature of the substituent and bronchodilatory activity. In the 5-alkyl substituted compounds V, a longer alkyl chain showed higher bronchodilatory activity. Compounds VIII and IX were found to be less potent and replacement of sulphur with oxygen showed no significant effect on the biological activity. The presence of halogens altered the biological activity in both the series. Among the compounds tested, 9-lodo-5-(n-propyl)-2,3-dihydroimidazo[1,2-c]quinazoline (VI) was found to be the most potent (percentage protection = 87.1%; relative activity = 1.1 compared to the standard aminophylline).

  9. FKBP12 activates the cardiac ryanodine receptor Ca2+-release channel and is antagonised by FKBP12.6.

    PubMed

    Changes in FKBP12.6 binding to cardiac ryanodine receptors (RyR2) are implicated in mediating disturbances in Ca(2+)-homeostasis in heart failure but there is controversy over the functional effects of FKBP12.6 on RyR2 channel gating. We have therefore investigated the effects of FKBP12.6 and another structurally similar molecule, FKBP12, which is far more abundant in heart, on the gating of single sheep RyR2 channels incorporated into planar phospholipid bilayers and on spontaneous waves of Ca(2+)-induced Ca(2+)-release in rat isolated permeabilised cardiac cells. We demonstrate that FKBP12 is a high affinity activator of RyR2, sensitising the channel to cytosolic Ca(2+), whereas FKBP12.6 has very low efficacy, but can antagonise the effects of FKBP12. Mathematical modelling of the data shows the importance of the relative concentrations of FKBP12 and FKBP12.6 in determining RyR2 activity. Consistent with the single-channel results, physiological concentrations of FKBP12 (3 µM) increased Ca(2+)-wave frequency and decreased the SR Ca(2+)-content in cardiac cells. FKBP12.6, itself, had no effect on wave frequency but antagonised the effects of FKBP12.We provide a biophysical analysis of the mechanisms by which FK-binding proteins can regulate RyR2 single-channel gating. Our data indicate that FKBP12, in addition to FKBP12.6, may be important in regulating RyR2 function in the heart. In heart failure, it is possible that an alteration in the dual regulation of RyR2 by FKBP12 and FKBP12.6 may occur. This could contribute towards a higher RyR2 open probability, 'leaky' RyR2 channels and Ca(2+)-dependent arrhythmias. PMID:22363773

  10. A model of human sleep-related growth hormone secretion in dogs: effects of 3, 6, and 12 hours of forced wakefulness on plasma growth hormone, cortisol, and sleep stages.

    PubMed

    Twenty-four canine GH (cGH) and cortisol secretion patterns associated with sleep stages were studied in 10 male adult dogs. Plasma samples were obtained at 30- or 15-min intervals via an indwelling catheter. Under baseline conditions, all dogs showed irregular polyphasic sleep, and the episodic cGH secretion had no apparent relationship with sleep or the light-dark cycle. Five dogs were subjected to regular sleep-wake cycles; 3, 6, and 12 h of forced wakefulness (FW) were repeated at 3-, 6-, and 12-h intervals (recovery sleep periods), respectively. Peak cGH secretion (mean +/- SD, 6.4 ng/ml +/- 2.4) occurred soon after recovery sleep onset in 25 of 40 total recovery periods. The incidence of sleep-onset cGH peaks and cGH secretion during the first hour of recovery sleep significantly increased with the length of the preceding FW, but were not affected by the time of day. Delta wave sleep increased during this hour, suggesting a possible correlation with the sleep-onset cGH peak. During the first 3 h of recovery after 6 and 12 h of FW, cGH secretion was significantly enhanced, but cortisol was not. Considering the characteristics of human sleep-related GH secretion, we suggest that this peak cGH secretion represents a model of human GH secretion. Possibly, a close association of cGH secretion with sleep is concealed under the baseline condition and uncovered by inducing longer sleep-wake cycles in dogs. No circadian cortisol variation was detected under the baseline or the experimental conditions. PMID:7238408

  11. The genes for the {alpha}-type HC3 (PMSA2) and {beta}-type HC5 (PMSB1) subunits of human proteasomes map to chromosomes 6q27 and 7p12-p13 by fluorescence in situ hybridization

    The authors have determined the locations of the genes for the two subunits, HC3 and HC5, by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). Chromosome spreads were obtained from phytohemagglutinin-stimulated blood lymphocytes of a healthy donor after thymidine synchronization and bromodeoxyuridine incorporation by the method of Takahashi et al. Genomic DNA fragments of HC3 (4.3 kb, including exons 3, 4, and 5) and HC5 (7.5 kb including exons 1 and 2) (11) were labeled with biotin-16-dUTP by nick-translation. In situ hybridization was performed according to Lichter et al. in the presence of COT-1 DNA as a competitor. Hybridized probe was detected with FITC-conjugated avidin without further signal amplification. Comparison of the fluorescence signals and the banding patterns of the chromosomes indicated that the HC3 and HC5 genes were located on chromosome band 6q27 and 7p12-p13, respectively.

  12. In Vivo Roles of Conjugation with Glutathione and O6-Alkylguanine DNA-Alkyltransferase in the Mutagenicity of the bis-Electrophiles 1,2-Dibromoethane and 1,2,3,4-Diepoxybutane in Mice

    Several studies with bacteria and in vitro mammalian systems have provided evidence for the roles of two thiol-based conjugation systems, glutathione (GSH) transferase and O6-alkylguanine DNA-alkyltransferase (AGT), in the bioactivation of the bis-electrophiles 1,2-dibromoethane and 1,2,3,4-diepoxybutane (DEB), the latter an oxidation product of 1,3-butadiene. The in vivo relevance of these conjugation reactions to biological activity in mammals has not been addressed, particularly with DEB. In the present work we used transgenic Big Blue® mice, utilizing the cII gene, to examine the effects of manipulation of conjugation pathways on liver mutations arising from dibromoethane and DEB in vivo. Treatment of the mice with butathionine sulfoxime (BSO) prior to dibromoethane lowered hepatic GSH levels, dibromoethane-GSH DNA adducts (N7-guanyl), and cII mutation frequency. Administration of O6-benzylguanine (O6-BzGua), an inhibitor of AGT, did not change the mutation frequency. Depletion of GSH (BSO) and AGT (O6-BzGua) both lowered the mutation frequency induced by DEB, and BSO lowered the levels of GSH-DEB N7-guanyl and N6-adenyl DNA adducts. Our results provide evidence that the GSH conjugation pathway is a major in vivo factor in dibromoethane genotoxicity; both GSH and AGT conjugation are major factors in the genotoxicity of DEB. The latter findings are considered to be of relevance to the carcinogenicity of 1,3-butadiene. PMID:24191644

    Reactions of the isomers Cp{sub *}Ir({eta}{sub 4}-2,5-Me{sub 2}T) (1) and Cp{sub *}Ir(C,S-2,5-Me{sub 2}T) (2), where 2,5-Me{sub 2}T is 2.5-dimethylthiophene, with Ru{sub 3}(CO){sub 12}, Re{sub 2}(CO){sub 10}, Mn{sub 2}(CO){sub 10}, and [{eta}{sub 6}-C{sub 6}H{sub 6})RuCl{sub 2}]{sub 2} yield a remarkable diversity of products. With Ru{sub 3}(CO){sub 12}, both 1 and 2 give the CO-substituted product Cp{sub *}Ir{eta}{sub 4}-2,5-Me{sub 2}T.Ru{sub 3}(CO){sub 11} (4), in which the 2,5-Me{sub 2}T group is {eta}{sub 4}-coordinated to the Ir and S-coordinated to a Ru in the plane of the triangular Ru{sub 3}(CO){sub 11} cluster. With Re{sub 2}(CO){sub 10}, 1 reacts to give the CO-substituted product Cp{sub *}Ir({eta}{sub 4}-2,5-Me{sub 2}T.Re{sub 2}(CO){sub 9}) (6), in which 1 is S-coordinated in an equatorial position of the metal-metal dimer Re{sub 2}(CO){sub 9}. However, another product of this reaction is Cp{sub *}Ir({eta}{sub 4}-SC{sub 3}H{sub 2}MeC(=O)Me)[Re{sub 2}-(CO){sub 9}] (7), in which the 2,5-Me{sub 2}T ligand has been converted to a ring-opened acyl-thiolate unit that is S-coordinated to Re{sub 2}(CO){sub 9}. Compound 7 is the major product of the reaction of 2 with Re{sub 2}(CO){sub 10}. The reaction of 2 with Mn{sub 2}(CO){sub 10} gives Cp{sub *}Ir({eta}{sub 4}SC{sub 3}H{sub 2}MeC(=O)Me)[Mn{sub 2}(CO){sub 9}] (9), the Mn analog of 7. The reaction of [({eta}{sub 6}-C{sub 6}H{sub 6})RuCl{sub 2}]{sub 2} with 1 gives the product Cp{sub *}Ir({eta}{sub 4}-2,5-Me{sub 2}T.Ru({eta}{sub 6}-C{sub 6}H{sub 6})Cl{sub 2} (10), which illustrates again the strong S-donor ability of the Cp{sub *}Ir({eta}{sub 4}-2,5-Me{sub 2}T) (1), group. 39 refs., 3 figs., 4 tabs.

  14. NTP Technical Report on the toxicity studies of trans-1,2-dichloroethylene (CAS no. 156-60-5) administered in microcapsules in feed to F344/N rats and B6C3F(1) mice.

    1,2-Dichloroethylene exists in two isomeric states: trans-1,2-dichloroethylene and cis-1,2-dichloroethylene. The trans isomer is used more widely in industry than the cis isomer. trans-1,2-Dichloroethylene is used as a solvent for waxes, resins, and acetylcellulose. It is also used in the extraction of rubber, as a refrigerant, and in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and artificial pearls. F344/N rats and B6C3F1 mice were administered trans-1,2-dichloroethylene in microcapsules in feed for 14 weeks. Animals were evaluated for clinical pathology, reproductive system effects, and histopathology. Genetic toxicity studies were conducted in vitro in Salmonella typhimurium and Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, and in vivo in mouse bone marrow cells and peripheral blood erythrocytes. In the 14-week feed studies, groups of 10 male and 10 female rats and mice were fed diets containing microcapsules with a chemical load of 45% trans-1,2-dichloroethylene. Dietary concentrations of 3,125, 6,250, 12,500, 25,000, and 50,000 ppm microencapsulated trans-1,2-dichloroethylene resulted in average daily doses of 190, 380, 770, 1,540, and 3,210 mg/kg for male rats; 190, 395, 780, 1,580, and 3,245 mg/kg for female rats; 480, 920, 1,900, 3,850, and 8,065 mg/kg for male mice; and 450, 915, 1,830, 3,760, and 7,925 mg/kg for female mice. Additional groups of 10 male and 10 female rats and mice served as untreated and vehicle controls. There were no exposure-related deaths of rats or mice. Mean body weights of male rats and male and female mice in the 50,000 ppm groups were significantly less than those of the vehicle controls. The mean body weight gains of female mice in the 12,500 and 25,000 ppm groups were also significantly less than that of the vehicle controls. On day 21 and at week 14, there were mild decreases in hematocrit values, hemoglobin concentrations, and erythrocyte counts in groups of male and female rats in the 25,000 and 50,000 ppm groups. At week 14, these effects were

    Natural and synthetic isoquinoline alkaloids display a wide variety of potent biological activities. The title 1-aryl-2-hydroxyethyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline, C19H23NO4, crystallizes with two molecules in the asymmetric unit related by pseudo-translation but differing only slightly in conformation. The pseudosymmetry is also reflected in the diffraction pattern. The subset of reflections corresponding to the smaller cell and average structure are on average twice as intense as those subtending the larger cell. Tentative refinement in the subcell leads to a disordered structural model with satisfactory agreement factors and, after appropriate use of restraints, acceptable molecular geometry but significantly larger and more anisotropic displacement parameters. In the correct unit cell, the independent molecules differ with respect to the orientation of the hydroxyethyl group. Intramolecular hydrogen bonding occurs between the hydroxyphenyl group and the N atom. PMID:27487334

  16. Determination of trace selenium by solid substrate-room temperature phosphorescence enhancing method based on potassium chlorate oxidizing phenyl hydrazine-1,2-dihydroxynaphthalene-3,6-disulfonic acid system

    A new method for the determination of trace selenium based on solid substrate-room temperature phosphorimetry (SS-RTP) has been established. This method was based on the fact that in HCl-KCl buffer solution, potassium chlorate could oxidize phenyl hydrazine to form chloridize diazo-ion after being heated at 100 °C for 20 min, and then the diazo-ion reacted with 1,2-dihydroxynaphthalene-3,6-disulfonic acid to form red azo-compound which could emit strong room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) signal on filter paper. Selenium could catalyze potassium chlorate oxidizing the reaction between phenyl hydrazine and 1,2-dihydroxynaphthalene-3,6-disulfonic acid, which caused the sharp enhancement of SS-RTP. Under the optimum condition, the relationship between the phosphorescence emission intensity (Δ Ip) and the content of selenium obeyed Beer's law when the concentration of selenium is within the range of 1.60-320 fg spot -1 (or 0.0040-0.80 ng ml -1 with a sample volume of 0.4 μl). The regression equation of working curve can be expressed as Δ Ip = 13.12 + 0.4839 CSe(IV) (fg spot -1) ( n = 6), with correlation coefficient r = 0.9991 and a detection limit of 0.28 fg spot -1 (corresponding to a concentration range of 7.0 × 10 -13 g ml -1 Se(IV), n = 11). After 11-fold measurement, R.S.D. were 2.8 and 3.5% for the samples containing 0.0040 and 0.80 ng ml -1 of Se(IV), respectively. This accurate and sensitive method with good repeatability has been successfully applied to the determination of trace selenium in Chinese wolfberry and egg yolk with satisfactory results. The mechanism of the enhancement of phosphorescence was also discussed.

    The solution-mediated synthesis and single crystal structure of (CN{sub 3}H{sub 6}){sub 2} {center_dot} Zn(HPO{sub 3}){sub 2} are reported. This phase is built up from a three-dimensional framework of vertex-linked ZnO{sub 4} and HPO{sub 3} building units encapsulating the extra-framework guanidinium cations. The structure is stabilized by template-to-framework hydrogen bonding. The inorganic framework shows a surprising similarity to those of some known zinc phosphates. Crystal data: (CN{sub 3}H{sub 6}){sub 2} {center_dot} Zn(HPO{sub 3}){sub 2}, AI,= 345.50, orthorhombic, space group Fdd2 (No. 43), a = 15.2109 (6) {angstrom}, b = 11.7281 (5) {angstrom}, c = 14.1821 (6) {angstrom}, V = 2530.0 (4){angstrom}{sup 3}, Z = 8, T = 298 (2)K, R(F) = 0.020, wR(F) = 0.025.

    The self-assembly of zeolites Ca64(Sr,K,Ba)48(Cu12(O,Cl))4[Si192Al192 O786](H2O) n (tschoertnerite, TSC-type framework, V = 31614 Å3) and Ca2K2[Al6Si6O24] (H2O)10 (willhendersonite, CHA-type framework, V = 804 Å3), which form paragenetic associations, has been simulated using computational methods (TOPOS program package). A new method for analyzing zeolites of any complexity has been used, which is based on the complete expansion of the three-dimensional structural graph (3 D factor graph) in tiles and the selection of nonintersecting tiles forming a packing. The code of self-assembly of 3 D structures from complementary linked nanocluster precursors is reconstructed: primary chain → microlayer → microframework. A supracluster precursor K48 with the symmetry bar 43 m, formed of four K12 clusters corresponding to the t-hpr tile, is established for TSC. The K48 cluster contains Ca template cations, which stabilize its local region in the stages of K12 → K24 → K48 self-assembly. Bifurcations of evolution paths (structural branching points) during the self-assembly of TSC and CHA microframeworks are established in the stage of formation of the K24 supracluster from invariant templated K12 clusters. The models under consideration explain the 100% localization of B = Ca cations, which play the role of templates, and the 50% occupation of the positions of K, Sr, and Ba spacer cations (in TSC) and K spacer cations (in CHA).

    Laser spectroscopy of short-lived radium isotopes in a linear Paul trap has been performed. The isotope shifts of the 6d{sup 2} D{sub 3/2} -7 p{sup 2} P{sub 1/2} transition in {sup 209-214}Ra{sup +}, which are sensitive to the short-range part of the atomic wave functions, were measured. The results are essential experimental input for improving the precision of atomic structure calculations. This is indispensable for parity violation in Ra{sup +} aiming at the determination of the weak mixing angle.

    Calcioferrite, ideally Ca4MgFe3+ 4(PO4)6(OH)4·12H2O (tetra­calcium magnesium tetrairon(III) hexakis-phosphate tetra­hydroxide dodeca­hydrate), is a member of the calcioferrite group of hydrated calcium phosphate minerals with the general formula Ca4 AB 4(PO4)6(OH)4·12H2O, where A = Mg, Fe2+, Mn2+ and B = Al, Fe3+. Calcioferrite and the other three known members of the group, montgomeryite (A = Mg, B = Al), kingsmountite (A = Fe2+, B = Al), and zodacite (A = Mn2+, B = Fe3+), usually occur as very small crystals, making their structure refinements by conventional single-crystal X-ray diffraction challenging. This study presents the first structure determination of calcioferrite with composition (Ca3.94Sr0.06)Mg1.01(Fe2.93Al1.07)(PO4)6(OH)4·12H2O based on single-crystal X-ray diffraction data collected from a natural sample from the Moculta quarry in Angaston, Australia. Calcioferrite is isostructural with montgomeryite, the only member of the group with a reported structure. The calcioferrite structure is characterized by (Fe/Al)O6 octa­hedra (site symmetries 2 and -1) sharing corners (OH) to form chains running parallel to [101]. These chains are linked together by PO4 tetra­hedra (site symmetries 2 and 1), forming [(Fe/Al)3(PO4)3(OH)2] layers stacking along [010], which are connected by (Ca/Sr)2+ cations (site symmetry 2) and Mg2+ cations (site symmetry 2; half-occupation). Hydrogen-bonding inter­actions involving the water mol­ecules (one of which is equally disordered over two positions) and OH function are also present between these layers. The relatively weaker bonds between the layers account for the cleavage of the mineral parallel to (010). PMID:24764934

  7. Line Positions and Intensities for the ν12 Band of 13C12CH_6

    High-resolution, high signal-to-noise spectra of mono-substituted 13C-ethane (13C12CH_6) in the 12.2 μm region were recorded with a Bruker IFS 125HR Fourier transform spectrometer. The spectra were obtained for four sample pressures at three different temperatures between 130 and 208 K using a 99% 13C-enriched ethane sample contained in a 20.38-cm long coolable absorption cell. A multispectrum nonlinear least squares fitting technique was used to fit the same intervals in the four spectra simultaneously to determine line positions and intensities. Similar to our previous analyses of 12C_2H_6 spectra in this same region, constraints were applied to accurately fit each pair of doublet components arising from torsional Coriolis interaction of the excited ν12 = 1 state with the nearby torsional ν_6 = 3 state. Line intensities corresponding to each spectrum temperature (130 K, 178 K and 208 K) are reported for 1660 ν12 absorption lines for which the assignments are known, and integrated intensities are estimated as the summation of the measured values. The measured line positions and intensities (re-scaled to 296 K) are compared with values in recent editions of spectroscopic databases. K. Sung, A. W. Mantz, L. R. Brown, et al., J. Mol.

    Abstract Chronic postsurgical pain (CPSP) is 1 important aspect of surgical recovery. To improve perioperative care and postoperative recovery knowledge on predictors of impaired recovery is essential. The aim of this study is to assess predictors and epidemiological data of CPSP, physical functioning (SF-36PF, 0–100), and global surgical recovery (global surgical recovery index, 0–100%) 3 and 12 months after hysterectomy for benign indication. A prospective multicenter cohort study was performed. Sociodemographic, somatic, and psychosocial data were assessed in the week before surgery, postoperatively up to day 4, and at 3- and 12-month follow-up. Generalized linear model (CPSP) and linear-mixed model analyses (SF-36PF and global surgical recovery index) were used. Baseline data of 468 patients were collected, 412 (88%) patients provided data for 3-month evaluation and 376 (80%) patients for 12-month evaluation. After 3 and 12 months, prevalence of CPSP (numeric rating scale ≥ 4, scale 0–10) was 10.2% and 9.0%, respectively, SF-36PF means (SD) were 83.5 (20.0) and 85.9 (20.2), global surgical recovery index 88.1% (15.6) and 93.3% (13.4). Neuropathic pain was reported by 20 (5.0%) patients at 3 months and 14 (3.9%) patients at 12 months. Preoperative pain, surgery-related worries, acute postsurgical pain on day 4, and surgery-related infection were significant predictors of CPSP. Baseline level, participating center, general psychological robustness, indication, acute postsurgical pain, and surgery-related infection were significant predictors of SF-36PF. Predictors of global surgical recovery were baseline expectations, surgery-related worries, American Society of Anesthesiologists classification, type of anesthesia, acute postsurgical pain, and surgery-related infection. Several predictors were identified for CPSP, physical functioning, and global surgical recovery. Some of the identified factors are modifiable and optimization of patients’ preoperative

    A new bis heterocycle comprising both bioactive 2-aminopyrimidine and thiazolidin-4-one nuclei namely 3-(4'-(4″-fluorophenyl)-6'-phenylpyrimidin-2'-yl)-2-phenylthiazolidin-4-one 3 was synthesized, characterized with the help of melting point, elemental analysis, FT-IR, MS, one-dimensional NMR ((1)H, (13)C) spectra and we evaluated the chemopreventive potential of 3-(4'-(4″-fluorophenyl)-6'-phenylpyrimidin-2'-yl)-2-phenylthiazolidin-4-one based on in vivo inhibitory effects on 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA)-induced hamster buccal pouch carcinogenesis. Administration of 3 effectively suppressed oral carcinogenesis initiated with DMBA as revealed by the reduced incidence of neoplasms. Lipid peroxidation, glutathione (GSH) content, and the activities of glutathione peroxidase (GPx), glutathione S-transferase (GST) were used to biomonitor the chemopreventive potential of 3. Lipid peroxidation was found to be significantly decreased, whereas GSH, GPx, GST, and GGT were elevated in the oral mucosa of tumor-bearing animals. Our data suggest that 3 may exert its chemopreventive effects in the oral mucosa by modulation of lipid peroxidation and enhancing the levels of GSH, GPx, and GST. PMID:21028942

    We have synthesized (E)-1-(2, 6-bis (4-methoxyphenyl)-3, 3-dimethylpiperidine-4-ylidene)-2-(3-(3, 5-dimethyl-1H-pyrazol-1-yl) pyrazin-2-yl) hydrazine (PM6). It was characterized using FT-IR, FT-Raman, 1H NMR, 13C NMR techniques. To interpret the experimental data, ab initio computations of the vibrational frequencies were carried out using the Gaussian 09 program followed by the full optimizations done using Density Functional Theory (DFT) at B3LYP/6-311 G(d,p) level. The combined use of experiments and computations allowed a firm assignment of the majority of observed bands for the compound. The calculated stretching frequencies have been found to be in good agreement with the experimental frequencies. The electronic and charge transfer properties have been explained on the basis of highest occupied molecular orbitals (HOMOs), lowest unoccupied molecular orbitals (LUMOs) and density of states (DOS). The absorption spectra have been computed by using time dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT). 1H and 13C NMR spectra were recorded and 1H and 13C NMR chemical shifts of the molecule were calculated using the gauge independent atomic orbital (GIAO) method. From the optimized geometry of the molecule, molecular electrostatic potential (MEP) distribution, frontier molecular orbitals (FMOs) of the title compound have been calculated in the ground state theoretically. The theoretical results showed good agreement with the experimental values.

    An efficient method to synthesize solution-phase combinatorial library of 1-aryl-4,6-diamino-1,2-dihydro-1,3,5-triazine was developed. The strategy involved an acid-catalyzed cyclocondensation between arylbiguanide hydrochlorides and carbonyl compounds in the presence of triethyl orthoacetate as water scavenger. A 96-membered combinatorial library was constructed from 6 aryl biguanides and 16 carbonyl compounds. Screening of the library by iterative deconvolution method revealed two candidate leads which are equally active against wild-type Plasmodium falciparum dihydrofolate reductase, but are about 100-fold more effective against the A16V+S108T mutant enzyme as compared to cycloguanil.

  1. A new C12 alcohol identified as a sex pheromone and a trail-following pheromone in termites: the diene (Z,Z)-dodeca-3,6-dien-1-ol.

    The diunsaturated C12 alcohol (Z,Z)-dodeca-3,6-dien-1-ol (dodecadienol) has been characterized by GC-MS and FTIR as a novel releaser pheromone in termites. This alcohol identified in Ancistrotermes pakistanicus (Termitidae, Macrotermitinae) possesses a double pheromonal function which again illustrates the chemical parsimony of termites compared with other social insects. In workers, dodecadienol elicits trail-following at a very low concentration (activity threshold at 0.1 pg/cm of trail); in male alates it induces trail-following at a low concentration (1-10 pg/cm) and sexual attraction at a higher concentration (about 1 ng). Traces of the monounsaturated C12 alcohol (Z)-dodec-3-en-1-ol (dodecenol), known as a trail pheromone of several Macrotermitinae, were also found in the sternal gland extracts of A. pakistanicus, although only dodecadienol was present at the surface of the sternal gland. Workers of A. pakistanicus are not sensitive to dodecenol, but they are as sensitive to dodecatrienol as to dodecadienol. However, in the study area (Vietnam), A. pakistanicus is living in sympatry only with those Macrotermitinae using dodecenol as a trail pheromone, the foraging populations therefore being well isolated through their respective trail pheromones. The presence of three types of unsaturated C12 alcohols as releaser pheromones in the only Macrotermitinae subfamily is discussed, and a possible biosynthetic pathway from linoleic acid is proposed for dodecadienol.

    Electronic transitions of the title molecules were measured between 250 and 710 nm using a mass-resolved 1 + 1’ resonant two-photon ionization technique at a resolution of 0.1 nm. Calculations at the B3LYP/aug-cc-pVQZ level of theory support the analyses. Because of their spectral properties, SiC2, linear Si2C2, Si3C, and SiC6H4 are interesting target species for astronomical searches in the visible spectral region. Of special relevance is the Si-C2-Si chain, which features a prominent band at 516.4 nm of a strong transition (f = 0.25). This band and one from SiC6H4 at 445.3 nm were also investigated at higher resolution (0.002 nm).

    The two-dimensional S=1/2 Kagome lattice in Herbersmithite ZnCu3(OH)6Cl2 is the best candidate for experimental realization of a quantum spin liquid ground state known to date. The recent discovery of a continuum of spinon excitations using inelastic neutron scattering has drawn strong attention to its exotic magnetic properties. Understanding the nature of the paramagnetic ground state of ZnCu3(OH)6Cl2 , however, remains a challenge, due to excess magnetic Cu defects occupying the interlayer Zn sites. We conducted single crystal NMR measurements of the 17 O Knight shift, and succeeded in measuring the intrinsic spin susceptibility of the Kagome layer down to T ~ 0 . 01 J (J ~ 17 meV) for the first time. We demonstrate that the intrinsic spin susceptibility decays exponentially at low temperatures, revealing the presence of a spin gap Δ ~ 0 . 1 J . Moreover, we show that application of a high magnetic field suppresses the gap. These results provide direct evidence for a gapped spin-liquid ground state realized in ZnCu3(OH)6Cl2.

    A series of new 6-methoxy-2-oxo-1,2-dihydroquinoline-3-carbaldehyde 4N-substituted thiosemicarbazone ligands (H2L1–H2L5) and their corresponding palladium(II) complexes [Pd(L1)(PPh3)] (1), [Pd(L2)(PPh3)] (2), [Pd(HL3)(PPh3)]Cl (3), [Pd(L4)(PPh3)] (4) and [Pd(L5)(PPh3)] (5), have been synthesized in order to evaluate the effect of terminal N-substitution in thiosemicarbazone moiety on coordination behaviour and biological activity. The new ligands and their corresponding complexes were characterized by analytical and various spectral techniques. The molecular structure of the complexes 2–5 were characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies which revealed that the ligands H2L2, H2L4 and H2L5 are coordinated to palladium(II) as binegative tridentate (ONS2−) by forming six and five member rings whereas, the ligand H2L3 coordinated to Pd(II) as uninegative tridentate (ONS−). The interactions of the new complexes with calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) have been evaluated by absorption and ethidium bromide (EB) competitive studies which revealed that complexes 1–5 could interact with CT-DNA through intercalation. Further, the interactions of the complexes with bovine serum albumin (BSA) were also investigated using UV-visible, fluorescence and synchronous fluorescence spectroscopic methods, which showed that the new complexes could bind strongly with BSA. Antioxidant studies showed that all the complexes have a strong antioxidant activity against 2-2′-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical and 2,2′-azino-3-ethylbenzthiazoline-6-sulfonic acid diammonium salt (ABTS) cation radical. In addition, in vitro cytotoxicity of the complexes against human lung cancer (A549) cell line was assayed which showed that 4 has higher cytotoxic activity than the rest of the complexes and cisplatin.

    In the title compound, [Ru(C14H16N4)(C16H8N4)](PF6)2·1.422CH3CN, discrete dimers of complex cations, [Ru(L–N4H2)tape]2+ are formed {L–N4H2 = 2,11-di­aza­[3.3](2,6)pyridino­phane; tape = 1,6,7,12-tetra­aza­perylene}, held together by π–π stacking inter­actions via the tape ligand moieties with a centroid–centroid distance of 3.49 (2) Å, assisted by hydrogen bonds between the non-coordinating tape ligand α,α′-di­imine unit and the amine proton of a 2,11-di­aza­[3.3](2,6)-pyridino­phane ligand of the opposite complex cation. The combination of these inter­actions leads to an unusual nearly face-to-face π–π stacking mode. Additional weak C—H⋯N, C—H⋯F, N—H⋯F and P—F⋯π-ring (tape, py) (with F⋯centroid distances of 2.925–3.984 Å) inter­actions are found, leading to a three-dimensional architecture. The RuII atom is coordinated in a distorted octa­hedral geometry, particularly manifested by the Namine—Ru—Namine angle of 153.79 (10)°. The counter-charge is provided by two hexa­fluorido­phosphate anions and the asymmetric unit is completed by aceto­nitrile solvent mol­ecules of crystallization. Disorder was observed for both the hexa­fluorido­phosphate anions as well as the aceto­nitrile solvate mol­ecules, with occupancies for the major moieties of 0.801 (6) for one of the PF6 anions, and a shared occupancy of 0.9215 (17) for the second PF6 anion and a partially occupied aceto­nitrile mol­ecule. A second CH3CN mol­ecule is fully occupied, but 1:1 disordered across a crystallographic inversion center. PMID:25484670

    Congenital gliobastoma multiforme (GBM) is rare and little is known about the molecular defects underlying the initiation and progression of this tumor type. We present a case of congenital GBM analyzed by conventional cytogenetics, fluorescence in situ hybridization, array comparative genomic hybridization and next generation sequencing. On cytogenetic analysis we detected a reciprocal translocation t(6;12)(q21;q24.3). By sequencing, the translocation was shown to form a fusion between the 5' region of ZCCHC8 and the 3' region of ROS1. RT-PCR analyses confirmed the existence of an in-frame fusion transcript with ZCCHC8 exons 1-3 joined to ROS1 exons 36-43. In addition to the ZCCHC8-ROS1 fusion, we detected a deletion in the short arm of chromosome 9, including homozygous loss of the CDKN2A/2B locus in 9p21.3 and heterozygous deletion of the HAUS6 gene in 9p22.1. The latter encodes a protein involved in faithful chromosome segregation by regulating microtubule nucleation and its deletion might be associated with the marked subclonal changes of ploidy observed in the tumor. This report adds the ZCCHC8-ROS1 fusion as oncogenic driver in GBM and supports the role of ROS1 activation in the pathogenesis of a subset of GBM. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. PMID:27121553

    In this work we prepared Li1.2Ni0.2Mn0.6O2 (LNMO) using a hydroxide co-precipitation method and investigated the effect of co-modification with NH4F and Al2O3. After surface co-modification, the first cycle Coulombic efficiency of Li1.2Ni0.2Mn0.6O2 improved from 82.7% to 87.5%, and the reversible discharge capacity improved from 253 to 287 mAh g 1 at C/20. Moreover, the rate capability also increased significantly. A combination of neutron diffraction (ND), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy (a-STEM)/electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) revealed the changes of surface structure and chemistry after NH4F and Al2O3 surface co-modification while the bulk properties showed relatively no changes. These complex changes on the material s surface include the formation of an amorphous Al2O3 coating, the transformation of layered material to a spinel-like phase on the surface, the formation of nanoislands of active material, and the partial chemical reduction of surface Mn4+. Such enhanced discharge capacity of the modified material can be primarily assigned to three aspects: decreased irreversible oxygen loss, the activation of cathode material facilitated with preactivated Mn3+ on the surface, and stabilization of the Ni-redox pair. These insights will provide guidance for the surface modification in high-voltage-cathode battery materials of the future.

    Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a heme peroxidase that catalyzes the production of hypochlorous acid. Clinical evidence suggests a causal role for MPO in various autoimmune and inflammatory disorders including vasculitis and cardiovascular and Parkinson's diseases, implying that MPO inhibitors may represent a therapeutic treatment option. Herein, we present the design, synthesis, and preclinical evaluation of N1-substituted-6-arylthiouracils as potent and selective inhibitors of MPO. Inhibition proceeded in a time-dependent manner by a covalent, irreversible mechanism, which was dependent upon MPO catalysis, consistent with mechanism-based inactivation. N1-Substituted-6-arylthiouracils exhibited low partition ratios and high selectivity for MPO over thyroid peroxidase and cytochrome P450 isoforms. N1-Substituted-6-arylthiouracils also demonstrated inhibition of MPO activity in lipopolysaccharide-stimulated human whole blood. Robust inhibition of plasma MPO activity was demonstrated with the lead compound 2-(6-(5-chloro-2-methoxyphenyl)-4-oxo-2-thioxo-3,4-dihydropyrimidin-1(2H)-yl)acetamide (PF-06282999, 8) upon oral administration to lipopolysaccharide-treated cynomolgus monkeys. On the basis of its pharmacological and pharmacokinetic profile, PF-06282999 has been advanced to first-in-human pharmacokinetic and safety studies. PMID:26509551

    In the title compound, C(34)H(35)NO(7)S, the acenaphthyl-ene unit is essentially planar (r.m.s. deviation = 0.0335 Å). The pyrrolo-thia-zole ring system is folded about the bridging N-C bond; the thia-zolidine and pyrrolidine rings adopt S- and C-envelope conformations, respectively, with a 'butterfly' angle between the mean planes of 51.38 (10)°. The dioxolane and tetra-hydro-furan rings adopt O- and a C-envelope conformations, respectively, with a 'butterfly' angle between the mean planes of 57.12 (10)°. Two C atoms are each disordered over two positions with site-occupancy factors of 0.450 (7) and 0.550 (7). The crystal packing is stabilized by C-H⋯O inter-actions, generating an R(2) (2)(14) graph-set ring motif. PMID:22904945

    Garnet-like Li6.8La3Zr1.8Bi0.2O12 (LLZBO) + x mol.% Al2O3 ( x = 0, 1.25, 2.50) lithium ionic electrolytes were prepared by conventional solid state reaction method under two different sintering temperatures of 1000°C and 1100°C. XPS, induced coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES), XRD and AC impedance spectroscopy were applied to investigate the bismuth valance, lithium concentration, phase structure and lithium ionic conductivity, respectively. Electrical measurement demonstrated that ionic conductivity of Al-added LLZBO compounds could be obviously improved when the sample sintering temperature increased from 1000°C to 1100°C. The highest ionic conductivity 6.3×10-5 S/cm was obtained in the LLZBO-1.25%Al sample sintered at 1100°C, in consistent with the lowest activation energy 0.45 eV for the lithium ion migration. The mechanism related with good ionic conductivity in the Al-added LLZBO sample was attributed to the lattice distortion induced by the partial Al substitution at Zr sites, which is helpful to improve the migration ability of Li ions in lattice.
