Mesoporous monolithic hybrid cellulose-2.5-acetate (CA)/polymer supports were prepared under solvent-induced phase separation conditions using cellulose-2.5-acetate microbeads 8-14 μm in diameter, 1,1,1-tris(hydroxymethyl)propane and 4,4'-methylenebis(phenylisocyanate) as monomers as well as THF and n-heptane as porogenic solvents. 4-(Dimethylamino)pyridine and dibutyltin dilaurate (DBTDL), respectively, were
DNA damage response (DDR) involves dramatic transcriptional alterations, the mechanisms of which remain ill defined. Here, we show that following genotoxic stress, the RNA-binding motif protein 7 (RBM7) stimulates RNA polymerase II (Pol II) transcription and promotes cell viability by
Mobile genetic elements (MGEs) are a rich source of new enzymes, and conversely, understanding the activities of MGE-encoded proteins can elucidate MGE function. Here, we biochemically characterize three proteins encoded by a conserved operon carried by the Staphylococcal Cassette Chromosome

An analytical method for determining phenylureas (monuron, isoproturon, diuron, linuron and neburon) and propanil herbicides in wastewater has been developed and validated, and the most significant parameters were compared with the corresponding ones found in the literature, thus showing the
The plasma membrane (PM) is composed of a complex lipid mixture that forms heterogeneous membrane environments. Yet, how small-scale lipid organization controls physiological events at the PM remains largely unknown. Here, we show that ORP-related Osh lipid exchange proteins are
The proteins PIAL1 (At1g08910) and PIAL2 (At5g41580) are members of the recently discovered group of plant E4 SUMO ligases. This protocol allows quick and simple expression of the recombinant proteins in Escherichia coli (E. coli) and subsequent affinity purification using
Chemphyschem : a European journal of chemical physics and physical chemistry, 16(11), 2317-2321 (2015-05-20)
We propose a facile room-temperature synthesis of a metal-organic framework (MOF) with a bimodal mesoporous structure (3.9 and 17-28 nm) in an ionic liquid (IL)/ethylene glycol (EG) mixture. The X-ray diffraction analysis reveals that MOF formation can be efficiently promoted
Oxidation of aromatic aldehydes in the ionic liquid [bmim] PF6.

Nucleic acid - protein interactions are critical for regulating gene activation in the nucleus. In the cytoplasm, however, potential nucleic acid-protein functional interactions are less clear. The emergence of a large and expanding number of non-coding RNAs and DNA fragments
Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase 1 (PARP1) is an important player in the response to DNA damage. Recently, Histone PARylation Factor (HPF1) was shown to be a critical modulator of the activity of PARP1 by facilitating PARylation of histones and redirecting the target
Gaseous absorption of fluoromethane, fluoroethane, and 1, 1, 2, 2-tetrafluoroethane in 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate.
Background: A rapid and new ultrasound-assisted ionic liquid-dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction method (UA-IL-DLLME) was presented for the determination of curcumin by spectrophotometry. Objective: To determine trace levels of curcumin in food samples by using green and low-cost method development. Methods: 1-Butyl-3-methylimidazolium
Malathion (MLT) is an organophosphorous type pesticide and having seriously high toxicity and electrochemical platforms for rapid, simple, inexpensive and sensitive determination of pesticides is still a special concern. This paper describes a simple preparation of a composite film consisting
The fidelity of intracellular signaling hinges on the organization of dynamic activity architectures. Spatial compartmentation was first proposed over 30 years ago to explain how diverse G protein-coupled receptors achieve specificity despite converging on a ubiquitous messenger, cyclic adenosine monophosphate
Journal of separation science, 38(12), 2126-2131 (2015-04-08)
A novel method has been developed for the analysis of zearalenone in maize products by vortex-assisted ionic-liquid-based dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction combined with HPLC and fluorescence detection. Maize samples were extracted with methanol/water (80:20, v/v) and the extraction solution was then

Heat shock proteins (HSP) perform vital cellular functions and modulate cell response pathways to physical and chemical stressors. A key feature of HSP function is the ability to interact with a broad array of protein binding partners as a means
α/β-tubulin heterodimers, which can harbor diverse isotypes and post-translational modifications, polymerize into microtubules that are fundamental to many cellular processes. Due to long-standing challenges in generating recombinant tubulin, however, it has been difficult to examine the properties of specific tubulin
Nanoscale research letters, 6, 535-535 (2011-10-04)
The use of nanowires (NWs) for labeling, sensing, and sorting is the basis of detecting biomolecules attached on NWs by optical and magnetic properties. In spite of many advantages, the use of biomolecules-attached NWs sensing by photoelectrochemical (PEC) study is
Brain inflammation generally accompanies and accelerates neurodegeneration. Here we report a microglial mechanism in which polyglutamine binding protein 1 (PQBP1) senses extrinsic tau 3R/4R proteins by direct interaction and triggers an innate immune response by activating a cyclic GMP-AMP synthase
Transcription factors show rapid and reversible binding to chromatin in living cells, and transcription occurs in sporadic bursts, but how these phenomena are related is unknown. Using a combination of in vitro and in vivo single-molecule imaging approaches, we directly correlated binding
Type VI CRISPR-Cas systems contain programmable single-effector RNA-guided RNases, including Cas13b, one of the four known family members. Cas13b, which has been used for both RNA editing and nucleic acid detection, is unique among type VI CRISPR effectors in its
