Genome rearrangements, a hallmark of cancer, can result in gene fusions with oncogenic properties. Using DNA paired-end-tag (DNA-PET) whole-genome sequencing, we analyzed 15 gastric cancers (GCs) from Southeast Asians. Rearrangements were enriched in open chromatin and shaped by chromatin structure. We identified seven rearrangement hot spots and 136 gene(More)
A series of new star-shaped monodisperse conjugated truxene derivatives bearing oligo(fluorene-vinylene) arms (Tr-OFVn, n = 1, 2, 3, 4) have been synthesized. It is found that the conjugation of the oligomers can be extended with prolonging the arms. Notably, the branched oligomers Tr-OFVn without strong donor and acceptor units exhibit two-photon(More)
A new dendritic gelator with carbazole as the building block (HBCD) was synthesized. It was found that H-bonding between the amide groups and π-π interaction between the aromatic rings played predominant roles in the gel formation. Meanwhile, significant aggregation-induced emission enhancement was observed in the gel state due to the formation of(More)
Comparisons of soil respiration (RS) and its components of heterotrophic (RH) and rhizospheric (RR) respiration during daytime and nighttime, growing (GS) and dormant season (DS), have not being well studied and documented. In this study, we compared RS, RH, RR, and their responses to soil temperature (T5) and moisture (θ5) in daytime vs. nighttime and GS(More)
Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is a common heritable and androgen-dependent hair loss condition in men. Twelve genetic risk loci are known to date, but it is unclear which genes at these loci are relevant for AGA. Dermal papilla cells (DPCs) located in the hair bulb are the main site of androgen activity in the hair follicle. Widely used monolayer-cultured(More)
[structure: see text] Three phosphorus(V) porphyrins with axial carbazole-based dendritic substituents (D-A-D) have been designed and synthesized, which are nonfluorescent due to their effective electron transfer from the carbazole dendron to the excited porphyrin within the dendritic matrix. The incident photon to current conversion efficiencies (IPCE)(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze the composition and spatio-temporal variation of soil macroinvertebrate communities in the northern Hengduanshan Mountains, Southwest China. The soil macroinvertebrates were investigated in April, August and November of 2008 in two deciduous broad-leaved forests: secondary shrub forest (SSF) and Betula albosinensis(More)
We have synthesized new D-A-D type phosphorus(V) porphyrin derivatives and functionalized with axial carbazolylvinylnaphthalimide units. The absorption bands of the obtained phosphorus(V) porphyrins were in the range 250-640 nm with high molar absorption coefficients, meaning strong light-harvesting abilities. Notably, it is found that the devices based on(More)
A series of new triphenylamine-functionalized bis(β-diketone)s bridged by a carbazole (CnBDKC, n=1, 4, 8, 16) with twisted intramolecular charge-transfer emission in polar solvents has been synthesized. The length of the carbon chains has a significant effect on the self-assembling properties of the compounds. Well-defined 1D nanowires were easily generated(More)
Novel β-furan-fused bis(difluoroboron)-1,2-bis((1H-pyrrol-2-yl)methylene)hydrazine (BOPHY) fluorescent dyes (F-BOPHY1-3) were prepared through an efficient process, and their structures were confirmed by (1)H NMR spectroscopy, (13)C NMR spectroscopy, MALDI-TOF HRMS, and element analysis. Their optical properties were then characterized by UV-vis absorption(More)
