The kynurenine pathway catabolite 3-hydroxykynurenine (3HK) and redox-active metals such as copper and iron are implicated in cataractogenesis. Here we investigate the reaction of kynurenine pathway catabolites with copper and iron, as well as interactions with the major lenticular structural proteins, the alpha-crystallins. The o-aminophenol kynurenine(More)
Abeta binds Zn(2+), Cu(2+), and Fe(3+) in vitro, and these metals are markedly elevated in the neocortex and especially enriched in amyloid plaque deposits of individuals with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Zn(2+) precipitates Abeta in vitro, and Cu(2+) interaction with Abeta promotes its neurotoxicity, correlating with metal reduction and the cell-free(More)
Binding of alpha interferon (IFNalpha) to its receptors induces rapid tyrosine phosphorylation of the receptor subunits IFNaR1 and IFNaR2, the TYK2 and JAK1 tyrosine kinases, and the Stat1 and Stat2 transcription factors. Previous studies have demonstrated that TYK2 directly and specifically binds to and tyrosine phosphorylates IFNaR1 in vitro. We now(More)
We propose and fabricate a random light scattering layer for light extraction in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) with silver nanodots, which were obtained by melting silver nanowires. The OLED with the light scattering layer as an internal light extraction structure was enhanced by 49.1% for the integrated external quantum efficiency (EQE). When a(More)
Interferon-alpha induces the rapid tyrosine phosphorylation of a number of molecules, including the cognate receptors, JAK-family kinases (Jak1 and tyk2), and latent transcription factors (STATs 1 and 2). Here, we describe the use of chimeric molecules composed of the extracellular domain of CD4 fused to the intracellular domain of the interferon-alpha(More)
An optical functional film applicable to various lighting devices is demonstrated in this study. The phase separation of two immiscible polymers in a common solvent was used to fabricate the film. In this paper, a self-organized lens-like structure is realized in this manner with optical OLED functional film. For an OLED, there are a few optical drawbacks,(More)
The effect of the fluorination of aluminum oxide (Al2O3) in an oxide-nitride-aluminum oxide (SiO2-Si3N4-Al2O3, ONA) layer through fluorine (F) ion and neutral-beam treatments on the characteristics of the ONA layer was investigated to study the effect of charge-related damage during F ion beam treatment. The treatment with an F beam at approximately 10 eV(More)
Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) with a Ba-doped tris(8-quinolinolato)aluminum(III) (Alq3) layer were fabricated to reduce the barrier height for electron injection and to improve the electron conductivity. In the OLED consisting of glass/ITO/4,4',4"-tris[2-naphthylphenyl-1-phenylamino]triphenylamine (2-TNATA, 30(More)
The chemistry, electronic structure, and electron-injecting characteristics at the interfaces that were formed between bis(2-methyl-8-quinolinolato)(4-phenylphenolato)aluminum(III) (BAlq) and barium (Ba) were investigated using ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy, near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy, X-ray photoemission spectroscopy,(More)
To date, all deposition equipment has been developed to produce planar films. Thus lens arrays with a lens diameter of <1 mm have been manufactured by combining deposition with other technologies, such as masks, surface treatment, molding etc. Furthermore, a nano-lens array (NLA) with a sufficiently small lens diameter (<1 μm) is necessary to avoid image(More)
