To date, in situ visualization of microbial density has remained an open problem. Here, functionalized buckyballs (e.g., C60-pyrrolidine tris acid) are shown to be a versatile platform that allows internalization within a microorganism without either adhering to the cell wall
Manuela Piazzi et al.

Mitochondria play a key role in adaptation during stressing situations. Cardiolipin, the main anionic phospholipid in mitochondrial membranes, is expected to be a determinant in this adaptive mechanism since it modulates the activity of most membrane proteins. Here, we used

The a2 isoform of vacuolar-ATPase (ATP6V0A2, referred to as a2V) is required for normal spermatogenesis and maturation of sperm. Treatment of male mice with anti-a2V disturbs the testicular cytokine/chemokine balance and leads to severe deficiencies of spermatogenesis. The aim of

PloS one, 10(5), e0127243-e0127243 (2015-05-20)
Signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) is a key mediator of leukocyte differentiation and proliferation. The 3' end of STAT3 transcripts is subject to two alternative splicing events. One results in either full-length STAT3α or in STAT3β, which
Norma A Sánchez-Flores et al.
Journal of colloid and interface science, 323(2), 359-364 (2008-05-27)
Well crystallized silicalite-1 has been obtained from three sources of amorphous silica, namely, rice hull ashes, commercial Davisil, and a fume silica from Aldrich. The silicas were first dissolved in glycerol according to a recently described reaction. This reaction transforms
Yijun Yao et al.
Journal of hazardous materials, 298, 221-231 (2015-06-10)
In 2002, U.S. EPA proposed a general buffer zone of approximately 100 feet (30 m) laterally to determine which buildings to include in vapor intrusion (VI) investigations. However, this screening distance can be threatened by factors such as extensive surface
Marcelo Ramalho-Ortigão et al.
Parasites & vectors, 8, 298-298 (2015-05-30)
The Phlebotomus papatasi salivary protein PpSP15 was shown to protect mice against Leishmania major, suggesting that incorporation of salivary molecules in multi-component vaccines may be a viable strategy for anti-Leishmania vaccines. Here, we investigated PpSP15 predicted amino acid sequence variability
Soania Mathur et al.
Journal of Parkinson's disease, 5(2), 263-268 (2015-02-28)
Despite an urgent need for new medications, clinical trials in Parkinson's have a relatively low rate of success. Although many reasons have been proposed for this, the opinions of patients and scientists, the two principal stakeholders, have not been widely
Chang Hoon Moon et al.
Investigational new drugs, 32(3), 400-411 (2013-11-10)
CKD-516 is a benzophenone analog in which the B ring is modified by replacement with a carbonyl group. The study assessed CKD-516 as a vascular disrupting agent or anti-cancer drug. To assess the effect of S516 on vascularization, we analyzed
Mukesh K Jaiswal et al.
Journal of leukocyte biology, 96(2), 337-347 (2014-03-14)
a2V is required for maturation of sperm. The decreased expression of a2V at the feto-maternal interphase causes poor pregnancy outcome. The present study examined the role of a2V in spermatogenesis and inflammatory network in the testis. A single dose of
Tatiana Siqueira Gonçalves et al.
Mutation research. Genetic toxicology and environmental mutagenesis, 762, 1-8 (2014-02-06)
Stainless steel bands, with or without silver soldered joints, are routinely used in orthodontics. However, little is known about the toxic biological effects of these appliances. The aims of this study were to evaluate the cytotoxic, cytostatic, genotoxic and DNA
C Uhrenfeldt et al.
Optics express, 23(11), A525-A538 (2015-06-16)
Plasmonic resonances in metal nanoparticles are considered candidates for improved thin film Si photovoltaics. In periodic arrays the influence of collective modes can enhance the resonant properties of such arrays. We have investigated the use of periodic arrays of Al
Diane G Elliott et al.
Diseases of aquatic organisms, 114(1), 21-43 (2015-05-12)
Non-lethal pathogen testing can be a useful tool for fish disease research and management. Our research objectives were to determine if (1) fin clips, gill snips, surface mucus scrapings, blood draws, or kidney biopsies could be obtained non-lethally from 3
Robert Shrake et al.
Journal of colloid and interface science, 437, 140-146 (2014-10-15)
Zwitterionic quantum dots prepared through incorporated zwitterionic ligands on quantum dot surfaces, are being paid significant attention in biomedical applications because of their excellent colloidal stability across a wide pH and ionic strength range, antifouling surface, good biocompatibility, etc. In
