Surface functionalized magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (NPs) are a kind of novel functional materials, which have been widely used in the biotechnology and catalysis. This review focuses on the recent development and various strategies in preparation, structure, and magnetic properties of naked and surface functionalized iron oxide NPs and their(More)
The prognostic, especially predictive, values of inflammation indexes in advanced colorectal cancer were not established. Therefore, the both values of neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet lymphocyte ratio (PLR) in patients with initially metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) were investigated and compared. Samples were collected from 243 patients(More)
"One key to one lock" hybrid sensor configuration is rationally designed and demonstrated as a direct effective route for the target-gas-specific, highly sensitive, and promptly responsive chemical gas sensing for room temperature operation in a complex ambient background. The design concept is based on three criteria: (i) quasi-one-dimensional metal oxide(More)
In this work, in order to enhance the performance of graphene gas sensors, graphene and metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs) are combined to be utilized for high selectivity and fast response gas detection. Whether at the relatively optimal temperature or even room temperature, our gas sensors based on graphene transistors, decorated with SnO2 NPs, exhibit fast(More)
Mercuric ion (Hg2+ ) is one of the most toxic and serious environment polluting heavy metal ions, which can be accumulated in human body through food chains and drinking water, and causes serious damage to human organs. Therefore, development of the efficient and sensitive method for detection of Hg2+ is very necessary. In this study, the high surface(More)
Phosphorylation of eukaryotic initiation factor 2α (eIF2α), transiently activated by various cellular stresses, is known to alleviate stress-induced cellular damage. Here, we addressed a question: does elevation of eIF2α phosphorylation by salubrinal (a pharmacological inhibitor of eIF2α dephosphorylation) enhance healing of bone wounds? We hypothesized(More)
In recent years, In(2)O(3) nanowires (NWs) have been widely explored in many technological areas due to their excellent electrical and optical properties; however, most of these devices are based on In(2)O(3) NW field-effect transistors (FETs) operating in the depletion mode, which induces relatively higher power consumption and fancier circuit integration(More)
Protein farnesylation, catalyzed by protein farnesyltransferase, plays important roles in the membrane association and protein-protein interaction of a number of eukaryotic proteins. Recent development of farnesyltransferase inhibitors (FTIs) has led to further insight into the biological significance of farnesylation in cancer cells. A number of reports(More)
A new eudesmane sesquiterpene glycoside, ophiopogonoside B (1), along with five known compounds, ophiopogonoside A (2), ruscogenin-1-O-[β-D-glucopyranosyl (1 → 2)]-[β-D-xylopyranosyl (1 → 3)]-β-D-fucopyranoside (3), palmitic acid (4), palmitic acid glyceride (5), and β-sitosterol-D-glucopyranoside (6),was isolated from the tuberous roots of Liriope muscari(More)
Aiming at the enhancement of the physicochemical stability as well as the sustained-release property of conventional liposomes, a novel polymerized vesicular carrier, 10,12-pentacosadiynoic acid (PCDA) vesicles, loaded with paclitaxel as a model hydrophobic drug has been successfully constituted by incorporation of a polymerizable diacetylene into the lipid(More)
