Impact of cationic polyelectrolyte on the nanoshear hybrid alkaline pretreatment of corn stover: Morphology and saccharification study.
Abstract Cationic polyelectrolyte was first used as the additive in the nanoshear hybrid alkaline pretreatment of corn stover. The novel nanoshear hybrid pretreatment process was recently developed at MSU. The chemical compositions and morphologies were investigated by SEM, TEM, confocal CLSM, and XPS to elucidate the degradation mechanism of cellular structures. At room temperature and fast processing conditions (∼2min), lignin was found to redistribute on the inner and outer surfaces of the cell wall as lignin aggregate droplets instead of being extracted. Free microfibrils in the residues were also observed. T...

Synthesis of tacrine-lophine hybrids via one-pot four component reaction and biological evaluation as acetyl- and butyrylcholinesterase inhibitors.
Abstract A novel series of tacrine-lophine hybrids was synthesized and tested for their ability to inhibit acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE) with IC(50) in the nanomolar concentration scale. The key step is the one-pot four component condensation reaction of 9-aminoalkylamino-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroacridines, benzil, different substituted aromatic aldehydes and NH(4)OAc, using InCl(3) as the best catalyst. Tacrine-lophine hybrids were found to be potent and selective inhibitors of cholinesterases. As an extension of the four component approach to tetrasubstituted imidazoles, a new series of b...

Optimization of heterocyclic substituted benzenesulfonamides as novel carbonic anhydrase IX inhibitors and their structure activity relationship.
In this study, starting from a lead compound discovered by virtual screening, a series of novel heterocyclic substituted benzenesulfonamides were designed and synthesized as new carbonic anhydrase IX (CA IX) inhibitors. Some compounds exhibited potent inhibitory effects against CA IX (in the low nanomolar range) as well as high selectivity against other carbonic anhydrase isozymes (CA I and CA II). The most potent and selective compound 27 could inhibit CA IX in the subnanomolar level with IC(50) of 0.48 nM, which increased the potency by about 40-fold against CA IX compared with the lead compound 26, and presented more t...

Common Expression of Stemness Molecular Markers and Early Cardiac Transcription Factors In Wharton's Jelly-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells and hESCs.
Abstract At present, there are still significant problems that impede the clinical use of hESCs and iPS cells，including ethics, immunorejection, tumorigenesis from hESCs and teratoma formation from iPS cells. It is therefore necessary to search for alternative sources of stem cells. WJ-MSCs originate from embryonic epiblasts and possess properties intermediate between hESCs and adult stem cells. However, the stemness properties of molecules in WJ-MSCs remain unclear compared to those of hESCs. In the present study, we isolated WJ-MSCs by a non-enzymatic method. Further, using microarray analysis by Affymetrix Gen...

Molecular trucks and complementary tracks for bionanotechnological applications.
Abstract Molecular motors are cellular trucks that help regulate structure and function, and enable cells to operate far from equilibrium by transporting cargo (i.e. organelles and other molecules of interest) to designed locations. Cargo transport is performed against concentration gradients and through the exchange of chemical energy into mechanical work. The truck-based transport system provides the inspiration for the next generation of intricate nanodevices and synthetic platforms to be used for lab-on-chip analyte detection and sensing with increased efficiency and scalability.

Rsf‐1, a chromatin remodelling protein, interacts with cyclin E1 and promotes tumour development
In this study, we co‐immunoprecipitated proteins with Rsf‐1 followed by nanoelectrospray mass spectrometry and identified cyclin E1, besides SNF2H, as one of the major Rsf‐1 interacting proteins. Like RSF1, CCNE1 is frequently amplified in ovarian cancer, and both Rsf‐1 and cyclin E1 were found co‐up‐regulated in ovarian cancer tissues. Ectopic expression of Rsf‐1 and cyclin E1 in non‐tumourigenic TP53mut RK3E cells led to an increase in cellular proliferation and tumour formation by activating cyclin E1‐associated kinase (CDK2). Tumourigenesis was not detected if either cyclin E1 or Rsf‐1 was expressed...

Dysregulation of the mitosis–meiosis switch in testicular carcinoma in situ
In conclusion, this study indicates that meiosis signalling is dysregulated in CIS cells and that a key regulator of the mitosis–meiosis switch, DMRT1, is expressed in 'early‐stage' CIS cells but is down‐regulated with further invasive transformation. Whether this mixed meiosis signalling in CIS cells is caused by insufficient virilization of the fetal somatic niche or a partial post-pubertal maturation remains uncertain and requires further study.

Kainate Induces Mobilization of Synaptic Vesicles at the Growth Cone through the Activation of Protein Kinase A
Activation of protein kinase A (PKA) pathway at presynaptic terminals plays a crucial role in the supply of synaptic vesicles (SVs) from the reserve pool, affecting the steady-state level of activity and the reconstitution of the readily releasable pool after intense stimulation. However, the identity of the stimuli activating this pathway is undefined. Using fluorescence resonance energy transfer and molecular genetic, we show that kainate, through the activation of presynaptic kainate receptors, induces PKA activation and enhances synapsin I phosphorylation at PKA-specific residues. This leads to a dispersion of synapsin...

KPT‐330 inhibitor of CRM1 (XPO1)‐mediated nuclear export has selective anti‐leukaemic activity in preclinical models of T‐cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and acute myeloid leukaemia
This study explored the anti‐leukaemic efficacy of novel irreversible inhibitors of the major nuclear export receptor, chromosome region maintenance 1 (CRM1, also termed XPO1). We found that these novel CRM1 antagonists, termed SINE (Selective Inhibitors of Nuclear Export), induced rapid apoptosis at low nanomolar concentrations in a panel of 14 human T‐cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (T‐ALL) cell lines representing different molecular subtypes of the disease. To assess in vivo anti‐leukaemia cell activity, we engrafted immunodeficient mice intravenously with the human T‐ALL MOLT‐4 cells, which harbour activ...
