Selective elimination of unwanted synapses is vital for the precise formation of neuronal circuits during development, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. Using inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor type 2 knockout (Itpr2(-/-)) mice to specifically disturb somatic Ca(2+) signaling in astrocytes, we showed that developmental elimination of the(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a new class of prognostic and diagnostic biomarkers for many cancers. Recent studies have shown that miRNAs are highly stable in plasma/serum. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of miR-421 in osteosarcoma. We found that the serum expression levels of miR-421 were significantly higher in osteosarcoma patients than those(More)
Facile manipulation of a tiny liquid droplet is an important but challenging issue for many miniaturized chemical and biological systems. Here we report that a microdroplet can be readily and remotely manipulated in aqueous environments under ambient conditions. The droplet is encapsulated with photothermal nanoparticles to form a liquid marble, and(More)
Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are thought to localize in the nucleus to regulate gene transcription and play pivotal roles in neurogenesis, apoptosis, and plasticity. However, the subcellular distribution of class I HDACs in the developing brain remains unclear. Here, we show that HDAC1 and HDAC2 are located in both the mitochondria and the nucleus in the(More)
Excellent self-healability and cold resistance are attractive properties for a portable/wearable energy-storage device. However, achieving the features is fundamentally dependent on an intrinsically self-healable electrolyte with high ionic conduction at low temperature. Here we report such a hydrogel electrolyte comprising sodium alginate cross-linked by(More)
Aquatic devices that can work on both water and oils have great scientific and practical significance, but the challenge remains in developing novel materials with excellent repellence to both water and oils. Here, we report that an artificial "strider" can float on both water and oils by using supporting legs with ultraviolet (UV) switchable wettability.(More)
