Knockout mice deficient in the gap junction gene connexin43 exhibit developmental anomalies associated with abnormal neural crest, primordial germ cell, and proepicardial cell migration. These migration defects are due to a loss of directional cell movement, and are associated with abnormal actin stress fiber organization and a loss of polarized cell(More)
Lectins are glycoproteins that bind to specific carbohydrate groups on cell surfaces. Peanut lectin (PNA) binds to carbohydrates on the membranes of normal keratinocytes. Recently, some authors have proposed that PNA may be a useful marker to help differentiate keratoacanthomas from well-differentiated squamous cell carcinomas of the skin. We studied a(More)
Substitution of the pillaring ligand in the homochiral open-framework [Ni(2)(L-asp)(2)(bipy)] by extended bipy-type ligands leads to a family of layer-structured, homochiral metal-organic frameworks. The 1D channel topology can be modified by the nature of the organic linker, with shape, cross-section and the chemical functionality tuneable. In addition,(More)
The first phosphinidene complexes of scandium are reported in this contribution. When complex (PNP)Sc(CH(3))Br (1) is treated with 1 equiv of LiPH[Trip] (Trip = 2,4,6-(i)Pr(3)C(6)H(2)), the dinuclear scandium phosphinidene complex [(PNP)Sc(mu(2)-P[Trip])](2) (2) is obtained. However, treating 1 with a bulkier primary phosphide produces the mononuclear(More)
An efficient triple azo coupling reaction between anilines and phloroglucinol furnished a series of C(3)-symmetric molecules 7-9 supporting multiple conjugation pathways that converge at the molecular core. A combination of (1)H/(13)C NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, and density functional theory computational studies provided a coherent picture of(More)
CuF(2)(H(2)O)(2)(3-chloropyridine) possesses a five-coordinate Cu(2+) center with a slightly distorted trigonal bypyramidal coordination geometry. Strong intermolecular F···H-O hydrogen bonds enable the formation of 2D layers and provide the primary magnetic exchange path that leads to the stabilization of long-range antiferromagnetic (AFM) order below T(N)(More)
Nanoimprinting is a fast-growing technique for nanoscale patterning. One of the remaining issues in nanoimprinting is the removal of the residual layer after nanoimprinting. Traditionally the residual layer is removed by an oxygen reactive-ion etching (RIE) step. The need for a vacuum environment and dedicated equipment in this step lowers the throughput(More)
