The pollution from polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and phthalic acid esters (PAEs) in the surface water of the rapidly urbanized Yangtze River Delta region was investigated. Fourteen surface water samples were collected in June 2010. Water samples were liquid-liquid extracted using methylene chloride and analyzed by gas chromatography-mass(More)
A series of monomethoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(lactide) (mPEG-PLA) diblock copolymers were synthesized, and mPEG-PLA micelle was fabricated and used as a nanocarrier for solubilization and delivery of a promising anticancer drug ethaselen. Ethaselen was efficiently encapsulated into the micelles by the dialysis method, and the solubility of ethaselen in(More)
The multi-subunit complex Elongator interacts with elongating RNA polymerase II (RNAPII) and is thought to facilitate transcription through histone acetylation. Elongator is highly conserved in eukaryotes, yet has multiple kingdom-specific functions in diverse organisms. Recent genetic studies performed in Arabidopsis have demonstrated that Elongator(More)
The FDA has approved 31 small-molecule kinase inhibitors (KIs) for human use as of November 2016, with six having black box warnings for hepatotoxicity (BBW-H) in product labeling. The precise mechanisms and risk factors for KI-induced hepatotoxicity are poorly understood. Here, the 31 KIs were tested in isolated rat liver mitochondria, an in vitro system(More)
By using three-dimensional (3D) tubular molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) as both an active material in electrochemical reaction and a framework to provide more paths for insertion and extraction of ions, PANI nanowire arrays with a diameter of 10-20 nm can be controllably grown on both the external and internal surface of 3D tubular MoS2 by in situ oxidative(More)
With the development of economy, most of Chinese cities are at the stage of rapid urbanization in recent years, which has caused many environmental problems, especially the serious deterioration of water quality. Therefore, the research of the relationship between urbanization and water quality has important theoretical and practical significance, and it is(More)
Three terpyridine derivatives L1-L3 and their Pt(II) complexes 1-3 have been prepared, the binding interactions with human telomeric (h-telo) and the promoter c-kit2 and c-myc G-quadruplex DNAs were investigated. All the ligands and the complexes are potent stabilisers of the G-quadruplex structures and exhibit the G-quadruplex selectivity over duplex. The(More)
Anthocyanins are ubiquitous plant secondary products that possess nutritive values and serve essential functions in plant defense. The purple kale (Brassica oleracea var. acephala f. tricolor) BoPAP1 gene, which encodes a MYB transcription factor associated with anthocyanin biosynthesis, was introduced into tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) under the control of(More)
Regional eco-environmental quality is the foundation of economic sustainable development and rational utilization of resources. It is necessary to understand and evaluate the regional eco-environmental quality correctly. Based on national remote sensing land use data, normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) data and some other statistical data, this(More)
A novel technique for the design and controllable preparation of holey MnO2 nanosheets was first developed by an in situ redox reaction between the MnO2 nanosheets and adsorbed Fe2+ ions at room temperature, in which Fe2+ ions originated from a redox reaction between Cu wire and Fe3+ ions. The formation of in-plane nanopores on the MnO2 nanosheets obviously(More)
