Human lipoxygenases (LOXs) have been emerging as effective therapeutic targets for inflammatory diseases. In this study, we found that four natural 2-arylbenzo[b]furan derivatives isolated from Artocarpus heterophyllus exhibited potent inhibitory activities against human LOXs, including moracin C (1), artoindonesianin B-1 (2), moracin D (3), moracin M (4).(More)
The complete mitochondrial genome of Bryodema luctuosum luctuosum, which was collected from the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau of China, is reported here. It is 15,946 bp in length and contains 74.9% AT. All B. luctuosum luctuosum protein-coding sequences start with a typical ATN codon. The usual termination codon (TAA) and incomplete stop codons (T and TA) were(More)
Abstract The complete mitochondrial genome of Filchnerella beicki Ramme, 1931, which was collected from the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region of China, is reported here. It is 15,658 bp in length and contains 72.3% AT. All Filchnerella beicki protein-coding sequences start with a typical ATN codon, excluding cox1. The usual termination codon (TAN) and(More)
Using first-principles molecular dynamics simulations, we demonstrate that the penetration of lithium atoms into a silicon nanowire (SiNW) self-stops once a metallic amorphous Li-Si shell forms. This explains the extended life of crystalline Si cores in SiNW battery electrodes observed in experiments. Metallic Li-Si shells grasp Li atoms and prohibit them(More)
