Osteosarcoma is the most common primary tumor of the bone. It leads to many deaths because of its rapid proliferation and metastasis. Recent studies have shown that microRNAs are important gene regulators that are involved in various cancer-related processes. In this study, we found that miR-135b was down-regulated in both osteoscarcoma patient tumor(More)
The intramolecular dehydrogenative amidation of aliphatic amides, directed by a bidentate ligand, was developed using a copper-catalyzed sp(3) C-H bond functionalization process. The reaction favors predominantly the C-H bonds of β-methyl groups over the unactivated methylene C-H bonds. Moreover, a preference for activating sp(3) C-H bonds of β-methyl(More)
An aerobic activity: The title reaction proceeds through an oxidation/cyclization/aromatization sequence under an atmosphere of O(2) (see scheme; DBU=1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene, DCE=1,2-dichloroethane, DMS=dimethylsulfide). This coupling reaction is the first to proceed via an iminium intermediate for a C(sp(3)-H bond-functionalization process, and(More)
Montmorillonite (MMT) was added to silicone rubber (SR) to improve the ablation resistance of the silicone. Following this, different quantities of silicon carbide whiskers (SiCw) were incorporated into the MMT/SR to yield a hybrid, ablative composite. The tensile strength and elongation at break of the composite increased after the addition of MMT. The(More)
This study investigated the effect of silane and surfactant treatments of graphene nanoplatelets (GnPs) on the mechanical and thermal properties of silicone rubber (SR) composites. GnPs were modified with aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES), vinyltrimethoxysilane (VTMS), and Triton X-100, and then the pristine GnPs and functionalized GnPs were individually(More)
