EphA5 is a member of the Eph/ephrin family and plays a critical role in the regulation of carcinogenesis. A significant reduction of EphA5 transcripts in high-grade prostate cancer tissue was shown using a transcriptomic analysis, compared to the low-grade prostate cancer tissue. As less is known about the mechanism of EphA5 downregulation and the function(More)
New electron-acceptor materials are long sought to overcome the small photovoltage, high-cost, poor photochemical stability, and other limitations of fullerene-based organic photovoltaics. However, all known nonfullerene acceptors have so far shown inferior photovoltaic properties compared to fullerene benchmark [6,6]-phenyl-C60-butyric acid methyl ester(More)
Nanoparticles are metastable relative to the equivalent bulk material due to the positive excess interfacial free energy (IFE). Previous studies have shown that, with increasing surface interaction strength, the IFE diminishes but remains positive. We describe an experimental multicomponent system in which a nanoscale ZnS material is thermodynamically(More)
The solution-phase self-assembly of nanowires (NWs) from diblock copolymer semiconductors, poly(3-butylthiophene)-block-poly(3-octylthiophene), of different block compositions gave crystalline NWs of similar width (13-16 nm) but a tunable average aspect ratio (length/width) of 50-260. The power conversion efficiency of bulk heterojunction solar cells(More)
An "infinite recycling" method for enhancing the durable applications of a ZnS nano-photocatalyst is shown. Based on the finding of thermodynamic stable nanophase of ZnS, we designed a strategy in which the deactivated ZnS nano-photocatalyst could be recovered into its original state. This ZnS photocatalyst can be used repeatedly without being released into(More)
Linux over the past few years has gained in popularity as the operating system for embedded networking equipment. Its reliability, low cost and undisputed networking capabilities made it one of the most popular choices for the networking devices. But traditional software network interfaces in Linux do not deliver satisfactory real-time performance. Hence(More)
PCI Express will serve as a general purpose I/O interconnect for a wide variety of future computing and communications platforms. While, SCSI(Small Computer Systems Interface) has emerged as a popular protocol in the storage world and like Linux, it is open source. Since the SCSI controller based on PCI Express bus has become increasingly important storage(More)
In this work, the growth kinetics of thiol-capped PbS nanoparticles was studied. Two-stage growth process was observed, which was controlled first by oriented attachment (OA) mechanism and then by the hybrid Ostwald ripening (OR) and OA mechanism. Different from the NaOH-ZnS system, where OA will occur between any two multilevel nanoparticles, an OA kinetic(More)
