The interactions between pepsin and four alkaloids, including caffeine (Caf), aminophylline (Ami), acefylline (Ace), diprophylline (Dip), were investigated by fluorescence, UV-visible absorption, resonance light scattering, synchronous fluorescence spectroscopy and 3D spectroscopy under mimic physiological conditions. The results revealed that Caf(More)
Both the Haber-Bosch and biological ammonia syntheses are thought to rely on the cooperation of multiple metals in breaking the strong N≡N triple bond and forming an N-H bond. This has spurred investigations of the reactivity of molecular multimetallic hydrides with dinitrogen. We report here the reaction of a trinuclear titanium polyhydride complex with(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The purpose of the present study was to clarify whether chronically elevated plasma neuropeptide Y (NPY) might affect heart function and cardiac remodeling in rats. METHODS Male Wistar rats were administered NPY (85 μg for 30 days) by mini-osmotic pump subcutaneously implanted between the scapulae. Associated indices for heart function,(More)
Tilletia controversa Kühn (TCK) is an important quarantine pathogen that causes wheat dwarf bunt and results in devastating damage to wheat production. The fungus is difficult to be distinguished from T. caries and T. laevis, which cause wheat common bunt, based on morphological, physiological and symptomatological characteristics of the pathogens. The(More)
Carbon-carbon bond cleavage of benzene by transition metals is of great fundamental interest and practical importance, as this transformation is involved in the production of fuels and other important chemicals in the industrial hydrocracking of naphtha on solid catalysts. Although this transformation is thought to rely on cooperation of multiple metal(More)
An organic-silica hybrid monolithic capillary column was fabricated by crosslinking (3-aminopropyl)trimethoxysilane (APTMS) modified mesoporous carbon nanoparticles (AP-MCNs) with tetramethoxysilane (TMOS) and n-butyltrimethoxysilane (C4-TriMOS). Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, mercury intrusion porosimetry and inverse(More)
The highly specific affinity between probes and phosphopeptides is the fundamental interaction for selective identification of phosphoproteomes that uncover the mechanisms of signal transduction, cell cycle, enzymatic regulation, and gene expression in biological systems. In this study, a metal-affinity probe possessing both interactions of metal oxide(More)
In real world, social networks are large scale, noisy and evolutionary. Communities are inherent characteristics of human interaction in social networks. Tracking evolutionary communities in dynamic social networks has become an increasingly important research topic. Several classic incremental clustering and evolutionary clustering algorithms have been(More)
