Regulation of cell-cell communication by the gap junction protein connexin43 can be modulated by a variety of connexin-associating proteins. In particular, c-Src can disrupt the connexin43 (Cx43)-zonula occludens-1 (ZO-1) interaction, leading to down-regulation of gap junction intercellular communication. The binding sites for ZO-1 and c-Src correspond to(More)
A new solid solution has been prepared in the system LiNb3O8-CuNb3O8, and the impacts of chemical composition and crystal structure have been investigated for the resulting band gap sizes and photocatalytic activities for water reduction to hydrogen under visible light. All members of the solid solution were synthesized by solid-state methods within(More)
A new series of compounds identified in the phase diagram of ZrO(2)-V(2)O(5)-MoO(3) have been synthesized via the solution combustion method. Single crystals of one of the compounds in the series, ZrV(1.50)Mo(0.50)O(7.25), were grown by the melt-cool technique from the starting materials with double the MoO(3) quantity. The room temperature average crystal(More)
A new solid solution Pb(3-x)Bi(2x/3)V(2)O(8) (0.20 < or = x < or = 0.50), stabilizing the high-temperature gamma form of Pb(3)V(2)O(8), has been isolated in the system Pb(3)V(2)O(8)-BiVO(4). The single-crystal structure of the composition x = 0.50 (Pb(2.5)Bi(1/3)V(2)O(8)) was solved using single-crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) technique. The compound(More)
Eulytite compounds, A(3)Bi(XO(4))(3) (X = P, A = Ca, Cd, Sr, Pb), belong to the noncentrosymmetric space group I4̅3d (No. 220) as determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies. The crystals were grown from the melt-cool technique with considerable difficulty as the compounds melt incongruently at their melting temperature, except for the compound(More)
A prevailing view regarding the regulation of connexin43 (Cx43) gap junction channels is that, upon intracellular acidification, the carboxyl-terminal domain (Cx43CT) moves toward the channel opening to interact with specific residues acting as a receptor site. Previous studies have demonstrated a direct, pH-dependent interaction between the Cx43CT and a(More)
