RESUMO

Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) possess distinct symmetry-protected topological phases. We show, through first-principles calculations, that by applying an experimentally accessible transverse electric field, certain boron and nitrogen periodically codoped GNRs have tunable topological phases. The tunability arises from a field-induced band inversion due to an opposite response of the conduction- and valence-band states to the electric field. With a spatially varying applied field, segments of GNRs of distinct topological phases are created, resulting in a field-programmable array of topological junction states, each may be occupied with charge or spin. Our findings not only show that electric field may be used as an easy tuning knob for topological phases in quasi-one-dimensional systems, but also provide new design principles for future GNR-based quantum electronic devices through their topological characters.

RESUMO

Exosomes are nanosized extracellular vesicles that have a critical role in intercellular communication and tumor microenvironment regulation. Extensive research has shown that exosomal small RNAs contribute to metastasis in multiple tumor types and that abnormal epigenetic modifications in nucleic acids also have an association with diverse diseases. However, the content of modified nucleosides on exosomal small RNAs has not been quantitatively reported. Because of the trace amounts of exosomes and matrix complexity, we used liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) as a powerful tool for label-free sensitive and simultaneous determinations of six important modified nucleosides on small RNAs inside exosomes. This system performed well using only approximately 107-108 particles of exosomes to obtain modified nucleoside levels between 0.001 and 0.03, and the most striking result was that the content of m6A in exosomal small RNAs was continuously higher than that in the cells being analyzed. We hope that this conclusion helps establish a greater degree of deciphering accuracy on exosomes, which has considerable application potential in the diagnosis and prognosis of diseases.

RESUMO

Covalent organic frameworks (COFs) have recently attracted much attention as potential photocatalysts for hydrogen production. The effective separation of photogenerated charges is a key objective to improve the photocatalytic activity of COFs. Here, four COFs were synthesized through the Schiff-base reaction to investigate whether the presence (simultaneous or not) of triazine and ketone as acceptors in COFs improve electron-hole separation efficiency. Evidence indicates that, when triazine and ketone are simultaneously present in the COF charge separation is more efficient. The COF comprising two acceptors displayed the highest photocatalytic hydrogen production rate (31.43 µmol h -1 - 41.2 times and 3.4 times as large as those of the COFs containing only triazine or ketone, respectively). Moreover, the effect of the distance between the two acceptors on the electron-hole separation was investigated by changing the length of a bridging biphenyl ring. It turned out that the transport distance of a single phenyl group is more favorable for the catalytic reaction. This work affords an insight and support for the design of efficient COF photocatalysts.

RESUMO

AIM: To test the relationships among staff nurses' work engagement, nurse managers' ambidextrous leadership and staff nurses' clinical leadership and workload. DESIGN: A multicentre cross-sectional survey design was used. METHODS: The study was conducted in eight medical centres from six representative provinces of China in October 2019. The participants completed electronic questionnaires that measured ambidextrous leadership, clinical nurse leadership, workload and work engagement. We used structural equation modelling to test a hypothetical model. RESULTS: The hypothetical model had a good fit to the actual data. Ambidextrous leadership was positively associated with clinical nurse leadership and work engagement, and clinical nurse leadership had a significant positive relationship with work engagement, which partially mediated the path from ambidextrous leadership to work engagement. In addition, workload moderated the relationship between ambidextrous leadership and clinical nurse leadership. CONCLUSION: This study makes a timely contribution to the nursing literature by demonstrating that nurse managers' ambidextrous leadership and clinical nurse leadership are important determinants of work engagement. Improving the level of ambidextrous leadership and clinical nurse leadership helps to enhance work engagement. IMPACT: This study provides a new strategy to increase nurses' work engagement from a new perspective of nursing leadership. Enhancing nurse managers' ambidextrous leadership and clinical nurse leadership can increase work engagement. Nurse managers should value the role of ambidextrous leadership and clinical nurse leadership in promoting work engagement, especially when nurses perceive they have a low workload.

RESUMO

Vegetations play a vital role in the ecological function of constructed wetlands (CW), but the systemic phytoremediation mechanism of CW is still unclear. An integrated vertical-flow constructed wetland (IVCW) was established to elucidate the phytoremediation mechanisms and plants eco-physiological response to an emerging contaminant, sulfamethoxazole (SMX). Attenuation of SMX in IVCW with and without vegetation (Acorus calamus) are comparatively analyzed. The results showed significant enhancement of removal efficiencies of total nitrogen (via intensified denitrification) and SMX by up to 10% respectively with vegetation. A unique micro-rhizo environment was created by stimulating the denitrifiers, Clostridium_sensu_stricto, Ignavibacterium, Rhodanobacter, and Geobacter. Free-living plant growth-promoting bacteria, unclassified_Burkholderiales and unclassified_Betaproteobacteria, proliferated in the rhizosphere, protecting the growth mechanism of A. calamus and, consequently, promoting performance of the IVCW. Overall, A. calamus exhibited tolerance to SMX, maintaining its photosynthesis rate and stabilizing the plant cell structure by an effective antioxidant system. The growth and defense mechanisms of A. calamus appeared to positively correlate with the IVCW performance, whereby the photosynthetic rate and antioxidant enzymes activities peaked together with the maximum removal efficiency of TN (77.81%) and SMX (99.88%). The contribution of vegetation to ecotoxicity reduction in CW might be underrated as absorbed SMX could be phytodegraded into less toxic metabolites via specific enzymes.

RESUMO

Bottom-up graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) have recently been shown to host nontrivial topological phases. Here, we report the fabrication and characterization of deterministic GNR quantum dots whose orbital character is defined by zero-mode states arising from nontrivial topological interfaces. Topological control was achieved through the synthesis and on-surface assembly of three distinct molecular precursors designed to exhibit structurally derived topological electronic states. Using a combination of low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy, we have characterized two GNR topological quantum dot arrangements synthesized under ultrahigh vacuum conditions. Our results are supported by density-functional theory and tight-binding calculations, revealing that the magnitude and sign of orbital hopping between topological zero-mode states can be tuned based on the bonding geometry of the interconnecting region. These results demonstrate the utility of topological zero modes as components for designer quantum dots and advanced electronic devices.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The study of drug-target interactions (DTIs) affinity plays an important role in safety assessment and pharmacology. Currently, quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) and molecular docking (MD) are most common methods in research of DTIs affinity. However, they often built for a specific target or several targets, and most QSAR and MD methods were based either on structure of drug molecules or on structure of receptors with low accuracy and small scope of application. How to construct quantitative prediction models with high accuracy and wide applicability remains a challenge. To this end, this paper screened molecular descriptors based on molecular vibrations and took molecule-target as a whole system to construct prediction models with high accuracy-wide applicability based on dissociation constant (Kd) and concentration for 50% of maximal effect (EC50), and to provide reference for quantifying affinity of DTIs. RESULTS: After comprehensive comparison, the results showed that RF models are optimal models to analyze and predict DTIs affinity with coefficients of determination (R2) are all greater than 0.94. Compared to the quantitative models reported in literatures, the RF models developed in this paper have higher accuracy and wide applicability. In addition, E-state molecular descriptors associated with molecular vibrations and normalized Moreau-Broto autocorrelation (G3), Moran autocorrelation (G4), transition-distribution (G7) protein descriptors are of higher importance in the quantification of DTIs. CONCLUSION: Through screening molecular descriptors based on molecular vibrations and taking molecule-target as whole system, we obtained optimal models based on RF with more accurate-widely applicable, which indicated that selection of molecular descriptors associated with molecular vibrations and the use of molecular-target as whole system are reliable methods for improving performance of models. It can provide reference for quantifying affinity of DTIs.

RESUMO

The genus Hydnellum is an important group of stipitate hydnaceous fungi which can form ectomycorrhiza with many species of woody plants. In recent decades, the frequency and number of basidiocarps observed in China have been declining significantly. So far, however, we know little about the species diversity of Hydnellum in China. In this study, we conducted molecular phylogenetic analyses based on sections of multiple loci, including the large subunit of nuclear ribosomal RNA gene (nLSU), the internal transcribed spacer regions (ITS), the small subunit of nuclear ribosomal RNA gene (SSU) and the second-largest subunit of RNA polymerase II gene (RPB2), as well as morphological studies, of collected samples of Hydnellum from China. We also inferred Maximum Likelihood and Bayesian phylogenies for the order Thelephorales from the dataset of the combined nLSU and ITS. This study has revealed the phylogenetic position of Hydnellum in the order Thelephorales, and phylogenetically confirmed ten major clades in Thelephorales; Twenty-nine taxa are proposed, described or reported, including 10 new subgenera (Hydnellum subgenus Hydnellum, subg. Caesispinosum, subg. Croceum, subg. Inflatum, subg. Rhizomorphum, subg. Scabrosum, subg. Spongiosum, subg. Subindufibulatum, subg. Violaceum and subg. Zonatum), 11 new species (Hydnellum atrorubrum, H. atrospinosum, H. bomiense, H. brunneorubrum, H. fibulatum, H. granulosum, H. inflatum, H. rubidofuscum, H. squamulosum, H. sulcatum and H. yunnanense), 3 newly recorded species (H. caeruleum, H. peckii and H. spongiosipes) and 5 notable specimens (Hydnellum sp 1, H. sp 2, H. sp 3, H. sp 4 and H. sp 5). A classification system based on the morphological characteristics (especially the hyphal structure types) and molecular analyses is proposed to accommodate most species in Hydnellum. The distinguishing characters of the subgenera and the new species with their closely related taxa are discussed. A key to the species of Hydnellum from China is provided.

RESUMO

Vertically stacked transition metal dichalcogenide-graphene heterostructures provide a platform for novel optoelectronic applications with high photoresponse speeds. Photoinduced nonequilibrium carrier and lattice dynamics in such heterostructures underlie these applications but have not been understood. In particular, the dependence of these photoresponses on the twist angle, a key tuning parameter, remains elusive. Here, using ultrafast electron diffraction, we report the simultaneous visualization of charge transfer and electron-phonon coupling in MoS2-graphene heterostructures with different stacking configurations. We find that the charge transfer timescale from MoS2 to graphene varies strongly with twist angle, becoming faster for smaller twist angles, and show that the relaxation timescale is significantly shorter in a heterostructure as compared to a monolayer. These findings illustrate that twist angle constitutes an additional tuning knob for interlayer charge transfer in heterobilayers and deepen our understanding of fundamental photophysical processes in heterostructures, of importance for future applications in optoelectronics and light harvesting.

RESUMO

Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) activation is involved in blood spinal cord barrier (BSCB) disruption and secondary injury after spinal cord injury (SCI). However, the underlying mechanisms of EGFR activation mediating BSCB disruption and secondary injury after SCI remain unclear. An in vitro model of oxygen and glucose deprivation/reoxygenation (OGD/R) induced BSCB damage and in vivo rat SCI model were employed to define the role of EGFR/p38/NF-κB signal pathway activation and its induced inflammatory injury in main cellular components of BSCB. Genetic regulation (lentivirus delivered shRNA and overexpression system) or chemical intervention (agonist or inhibitor) were applied to activate or inactivate EGFR and p38 in astrocytes and microvascular endothelial cells (MEC) under which conditions, the expression of pro-inflammatory factors (TNF-α, iNOS, COX-2, and IL-1ß), tight junction (TJ) protein (ZO-1 and occludin), nuclear translocation of NF-κB and permeability of BSCB were analyzed. The pEGFR was increased in astrocytes and MEC which induced the activation of EGFR and p38 and NF-κB nuclear translocation. The activation of EGFR and p38 increased the TNF-α, iNOS, COX-2, and IL-1ß responsible for the inflammatory injury and reduced the ZO-1 and occludin which caused BSCB disruption. While EGFR or p38 inactivation inhibited NF-κB nuclear translocation, and markedly attenuated the production of pro-inflammatory factors and the loss of TJ protein. This study suggests that the EGFR activation in main cellular components of BSCB after SCI mediates BSCB disruption and secondary inflammatory injury via the EGFR/p38/NF-κB pathway.

RESUMO

Diabetes is a metabolic disease caused by high blood sugar. Patients are often suffering from high blood pressure and arteriosclerosis, which may even evolve into liver disease, kidney disease, and other diabetic complications. Dipeptide peptidase IV (DPP-IV) plays an important role in regulating blood sugar levels and is one of the targets for the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes. Here, a long-wavelength ratiometric fluorescent probe DCDHFNH2-dpp4 for detecting DPP-IV was designed and synthesized. DCDHFNH2-dpp4 was used to detect DPP-IV in healthy, tumor-bearing, and diabetic mice, and only diabetic mice showed strong fluorescence signals. In organ imaging, it is found that DPP-IV is relatively enriched in the liver of diabetic mice. In addition, probe DCDHFNH2-dpp4 also exhibited a significant ratiometric fluorescence signal in the serum of diabetic mice. Therefore, the fluorescent probe DCDHFNH2-dpp4 has shown outstanding potential in the early diagnosis of diabetes, and DCDHFNH2-dpp4 is hopeful to be applied to actual clinical medicine.

RESUMO

Technology advancements in history have often been propelled by material innovations. In recent years, two-dimensional (2D) materials have attracted substantial interest as an ideal platform to construct atomic-level material architectures. In this work, we design a reaction pathway steered in a very different energy landscape, in contrast to typical thermal chemical vapor deposition method in high temperature, to enable room-temperature atomic-layer substitution (RT-ALS). First-principle calculations elucidate how the RT-ALS process is overall exothermic in energy and only has a small reaction barrier, facilitating the reaction to occur at room temperature. As a result, a variety of Janus monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides with vertical dipole could be universally realized. In particular, the RT-ALS strategy can be combined with lithography and flip-transfer to enable programmable in-plane multiheterostructures with different out-of-plane crystal symmetry and electric polarization. Various characterizations have confirmed the fidelity of the precise single atomic layer conversion. Our approach for designing an artificial 2D landscape at selective locations of a single layer of atoms can lead to unique electronic, photonic, and mechanical properties previously not found in nature. This opens a new paradigm for future material design, enabling structures and properties for unexplored territories.

RESUMO

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is caused by infection of the coronavirus severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) with typical respiratory symptoms. SARS-CoV-2 invades not only the respiratory system, but also other organs expressing the cell surface receptor angiotensin converting enzyme 2. In particular, the digestive system is a susceptible target of SARS-CoV-2. Gastrointestinal symptoms of COVID-19 include anorexia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and liver damage. Patients with digestive damage have a greater chance of progressing to severe or critical illness, a poorer prognosis, and a higher risk of death. This paper aims to summarize the digestive system symptoms of COVID-19 and discuss fecal-oral contagion of SARS-CoV-2. It also describes the characteristics of inflammatory bowel disease patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection and discusses precautions for preventing SARS-CoV-2 infection during gastrointestinal endoscopy procedures. Improved attention to digestive system abnormalities and gastrointestinal symptoms of COVID-19 patients may aid health care providers in the process of clinical diagnosis, treatment, and epidemic prevention and control.

RESUMO

Introduction: Glutathione reductase (GSR) provides reduced glutathione (GSH) to maintain redox homeostasis. Inhibition of GSR disrupts this balance, resulting in cell damage, which benefits cancer therapy. However, the effect of GSR inhibition on the tumorigenicity of human cervical cancer is not fully understood. Materials and Methods: Tissue microarray analysis was employed to determine GSR expression in cervical cancer tissues by immunohistochemical staining. Cell death was measured with PI/FITC-annexin V staining. mRNA levels were measured via quantitative RT-PCR. Protein expression was measured by Western blotting and flow cytometry. STAT3 deletion was performed with CRISPR/Cas9 technology. GSR knockdown was achieved by RNA interference. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels were measured by DCF staining. GSR enzymatic activity was measured with a GSR assay kit. The effect of GSR inhibition on the growth of tumors formed by cervical cancer cells was investigated using a xenograft model. Results: The expression of GSR was increased in human cervical cancer tissues, as shown by immunohistochemical staining. GSR knockdown by RNA interference in human cervical cancer cell lines resulted in cell death, suggesting the ability of GSR to maintain cancer cell survival. The STAT3 inhibitor 6-nitrobenzo[b]thiophene 1,1-dioxide (Stattic) also inhibited the enzymatic activity of GSR and induced the death of cervical cancer cells. More importantly, Stattic decreased the growth of xenograft tumors formed by cervical cancer cells in nude mice. Mechanistically, tumor cell death induced by Stattic-mediated GSR inhibition was ROS-dependent, since the ROS scavengers GSH and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) reversed the effect of Stattic. In contrast, pharmacological and molecular inhibition of STAT3 did not induce the death of cervical cancer cells, suggesting a STAT3-independent activity of Stattic. Conclusion: Stattic inhibits the enzymatic activity of GSR and induces STAT3-independent but ROS-dependent death of cervical cancer cells, suggesting its potential application as a therapeutic agent for human cervical cancers.

RESUMO

Protein synthesis and degradation responding to environmental cues is critical for understanding the mechanisms involved. Chemical proteomics introducing bioorthogonal tagging into proteins and isolation by biotin affinity purification is applicable for enrichment of newly synthesized proteins (NSPs). Current enrichment methods based on biotin-streptavidin interaction lack efficiency to release enriched NSPs under mild conditions. Here we designed a novel method for enriching newly synthesized peptides by click chemistry followed by release of enriched peptides via tryptic digestion based on cleavable bioorthogonal tagging (CBOT). CBOT-modified peptides can further enhance identification in mass spectrometry analysis and provide a confirmation by small mass shift. Our method achieved an improvement in specificity (97.1%) and sensitivity for NSPs in cell lysate, corresponding to profiling at a depth of 4335 NSPs from 2 mg of starting materials in a single LC-MS/MS run. In addition, the CBOT strategy can quantify NSPs when coupling a pair of isotope-labeled azidohomoalanine (AHA/hAHA) with decent reproducibility. Furthermore, we applied it to analyze newly synthesized proteomes in the autophagy process after 6 h rapamycin stimulation in cells, 2910 NSPs were quantified, and 337 NSPs among them were significantly up- and down-regulated. We envision CBOT as an effective and alternative approach for bioorthogonal chemical proteomics to study stimuli-sensitive subsets.

RESUMO

This study investigated the effects of resveratrol (RES) on intestinal morphology, antioxidant capacity, intestinal inflammation, and barrier function in weaned piglets challenged with diquat (DIQ). Thirty weaned piglets were randomly assigned to 5 treatments: non-challenged group (CON), DIQ-challenged group (DIQ), and DIQ-challenged group with 10, 30, or 90 mg/kg of RES, respectively. The trail lasted 21 days, and piglets were intraperitoneally injected with DIQ or the same amount of saline on day 15. The results showed that supplementation with 90 mg/kg RES increased (P < 0.05) jejunal villus height and villus height: crypt depth ratio, and decreased (P < 0.05) crypt depth, plasma D-lactate and diamine oxidase (DAO) compared with the DIQ group. Piglets fed with 30 or 90 mg/kg RES prevented the diquat-induced decrease (P < 0.05) of mRNA expression of occludin, claudin-1, ZO-1, and IL-10, and increase (P < 0.05) of TNF-α mRNA expression. Moreover, addition of 90 mg/kg RES increased (P < 0.05) the activities of SOD, GSH-Px, and CAT and decreased (P < 0.05) the MDA levels in jejunal mucosa compared with the DIQ group. Finally, addition of 90 mg/kg RES enhanced (P < 0.05) the mRNA expression of SOD1, SOD2, CAT, GPx1, and HO-1, and increased (P < 0.05) mRNA and protein expression of Nrf2, NQO1, aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR), and cytochrome P450 family 1 member A1 (CYP1A1). These data indicated that supplementation with 90 mg/kg RES was effective in protecting the intestinal integrity, alleviating intestinal inflammation and oxidative stress by activating AhR/Nrf2 pathways in diquat-challenged piglets.

RESUMO

When monolayers of two-dimensional (2D) materials are stacked into van der Waals structures, interlayer electronic coupling can introduce entirely new properties, as exemplified by recent discoveries of moiré bands that host highly correlated electronic states and quantum dot-like interlayer exciton lattices. Here we show the magnetic control of interlayer electronic coupling, as manifested in tunable excitonic transitions, in an A-type antiferromagnetic 2D semiconductor CrSBr. Excitonic transitions in bilayers and above can be drastically changed when the magnetic order is switched from the layered antiferromagnetic ground state to a field-induced ferromagnetic state, an effect attributed to the spin-allowed interlayer hybridization of electron and hole orbitals in the latter, as revealed by Green's function-Bethe-Salpeter equation (GW-BSE) calculations. Our work uncovers a magnetic approach to engineer electronic and excitonic effects in layered magnetic semiconductors.
