SphK1 and SphK2, Sphingosine Kinase Isoenzymes with Opposing Functions in Sphingolipid Metabolism*
The results demonstrate that SphK1 and SphK2 have opposing roles in the regulation of ceramide biosynthesis and suggest that the location of sphingosine 1-phosphate production dictates its functions. Expand
ABO3, a WRKY transcription factor, mediates plant responses to abscisic acid and drought tolerance in Arabidopsis.
An ABA overly sensitive mutant, abo3, which is disrupted by a T-DNA insertion in At1g66600 encoding a WRKY transcription factor AtWRKY63 is isolated, uncovering an important role for a WR KY transcription factor in plant responses to ABA and drought stress. Expand
The effects of trust and coercive power on supplier integration
Supply chain integration nowadays is considered an important approach to building and sustaining competitive advantages. Many previous empirical researches have investigated trust and power betweenExpand
Effects of feedstock type, production method, and pyrolysis temperature on biochar and hydrochar properties
Abstract This work explored the effect of temperature, production method, and feedstock type on the physicochemical and biological properties of biochars and hydrochars. Biochars and hydrochars madeExpand
Hydrogen peroxide modification enhances the ability of biochar (hydrochar) produced from hydrothermal carbonization of peanut hull to remove aqueous heavy metals: Batch and column tests
Abstract Biochar converted from agricultural residues can be used as an alternative adsorbent for removal of aqueous heavy metals. In this work, experimental and modeling investigations wereExpand
The ER–Golgi intermediate compartment is a key membrane source for the LC3 lipidation step of autophagosome biogenesis
A systematic membrane isolation scheme is developed to identify the endoplasmic reticulum–Golgi intermediate compartment (ERGIC) as a primary membrane source both necessary and sufficient to trigger LC3 lipidation in vitro. Expand
Albumin Binding as a General Strategy for Improving the Pharmacokinetics of Proteins*
A series of peptides having the core sequence DICLPRWGCLW that specifically bind serum albumin from multiple species with high affinity are identified, suggesting a novel and generic method for improving the pharmacokinetic properties of rapidly cleared proteins. Expand
This paper presents a model calculation of solar energetic particle propagation in a three-dimensional interplanetary magnetic field. The model includes essentially all the particle transportExpand
Synthesis of porous MgO-biochar nanocomposites for removal of phosphate and nitrate from aqueous solutions
Abstract A new synthesis was developed to create highly porous nanocomposite material consisting of MgO nano-flakes within a biochar matrix that has high sorption ability for ionic contaminations.Expand
Translocation of interleukin-1β into a vesicle intermediate in autophagy-mediated secretion
An autophagy-regulated secretion of mature IL-1β in non-macrophage cells is reconstituted and it is found that cytoplasmic IL- 1β associates with the autophagosome and m-IL-1 β enters into the lumen of a vesicle intermediate but not into the cytopLasmic interior formed by engulfment of the Autophagic membrane.
