Down-regulation of Kv4.3 K⁺ channels commonly occurs in multiple diseases, but the understanding of the regulation of Kv4.3 K⁺ channels and the role of Kv4.3 K⁺ channels in pathological conditions are limited. HEK (human embryonic kidney)-293T cells are derived from HEK-293 cells which are transformed by expression of the large T-antigen. In the present(More)
HIV-infected patients have a high prevalence of long QT syndrome (LQTs). hERG K(+) channel encoded by human ether-a-go-go related gene contributes to IKr K(+) currents responsible for the repolarization of cardiomyocytes. Inhibition of hERG K(+) channels leads to LQTs. HIV Tat protein, the virus transactivator protein, plays a pivotal role in AIDS. The aim(More)
We introduce gold nanorods (GNRs) decoration on NaYF4:Yb/Tm upconversion nanocrystals (UCNCs) by functionalizing the UCNCs with polyamidoamine generation 1 (PAMAM G1) dendrimer, followed by a single-step seed-mediated growth of long-range GNRs to enhance "biological window" upconversion emission. The up-conversion emission of GNR-decorated UCNCs can be(More)
Synthesis, structure, and physical properties of a novel 11-methylbenzo[d]pyreno[4,5-b]furan (BPF) and its self-assembly in water have been reported. The performance of nanowire-based films in organic light-emitting diodes is much better than that of the thin film deposited by directly drop-coating BPF molecules in THF solution. SEM study indicates that the(More)
Rare-earth-based nanomaterials have recently drawn considerable attention because of their unique energy upconversion (UC) capabilities. However, studies of Sc(3+)-based nanomaterials are still absent. Herein we report the synthesis and fine control of Na(x)ScF(3+x) nanocrystals by tuning of the ratio of oleic acid (OA, polar surfactant) to 1-octadecene(More)
In this paper, a simple and sensitive fluorescent sensor for methyl parathion is developed based on L-tyrosine methyl ester functionalized carbon dots (Tyr-CDs) and tyrosinase system. The carbon dots are obtained by simple hydrothermal reaction using citric acid as carbon resource and L-tyrosine methyl ester as modification reagent. The carbon dots are(More)
For the first time, we have synthesized orthorhombic phase KSc2F7:20%Yb/2%Er (KSc2F7:Yb/Er) nanorods and further studied the crystal structure and morphology evolution, as well as their upconversion (UC) properties under varying F(-) contents and reaction temperatures. Different from β-NaYF4:20%Yb/2%Er (NaYF4:Yb/Er) nanorods that usually give strong green(More)
Compared with automatic speech recognition (ASR), the human auditory system is more adept at handling noise-adverse situations, including environmental noise and channel distortion. To mimic this adeptness, auditory models have been widely incorporated in ASR systems to improve their robustness. This paper proposes a novel auditory model which incorporates(More)
A novel [2]pseudorotaxane was successfully constructed by the complexation of dibenzo[24]-crown-8 (DB24C8) derivative bearing terpyridine moiety (1) with lanthanide ion (Tb(3+)) and fullerene-containing ammonium salt (2), exhibiting the controlled photophysical behaviors as a reversible luminescent lanthanide switch in the presence of K(+) or 18-crown-6(More)
