RESUMO

The massive release of greenhouse gas CO 2 has resulted in numerous environmental issues. In searching for advanced technologies for CO 2 capture/conversions, recent advances in electrochemical reduction of CO 2 in molten salts shed a light on potential solutions to CO 2 mitigation. Electro-reduction of CO 2 in molten salts exhibits features like high selectivity and efficiency to sustainable carbons as well as fuels, low toxicity, and possibility to combine with in-situ CO 2 -capture. In this review, we highlight the tuning of the products in this process and mainly discuss the two categories of electrolyte, carbonate molten salts (CMS) and halide molten salts (HMS). Depending on the synthetic conditions, fuels like CO or hydrocarbons (in the presence of hydrogen source, i.e. LiOH, NaOH or KOH in the electrolyte) as well as high value nano-structured carbons including carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers, carbon nano-onions, and graphene can be obtained with high efficiency. The synthesis parameters are compared and the applications of as-obtained carbons are briefly summarized. Additionally, some perspectives on this technology are also discussed.

RESUMO

Copper oxide composites were successfully synthesized by a catalyst-free method, plasma arc technology. The as-synthesized composites were characterized by x-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The analysis revealed a mixture of crystalline copper oxide (CuO), cuprous oxide (Cu2O) and copper (Cu) phases of the copper oxide composites constitute of irregularly spheroidal particlesµ with nanoparticles aggregate on the surface. Gas pressure during plasma arc process noticeably influences the composition and solar radiative properties of the composite materials. Among the samples studied, the composites synthesized with an arc current of 80 A and a pressure of 300 Torr exhibited the highest near infrared diffuse reflectance, providing a total solar reflectance of 22.96%. The mixed phase composition together with the nanostructures among the composites are considered to contribute to the excellent near infrared reflectance of copper oxide composites. Low reflectance in the visible region combined with high reflectance in the near infrared region make this composite material a good candidate for solar reflective coating which will demonstrate black appearance but keep a cool surface under solar irradiation.

RESUMO

Thrombosis leads to platelet activation and subsequent degradation; therefore, replenishment of platelets from hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs) is needed to maintain the physiological level of circulating platelets. Platelet-derived microparticles (PMPs) are protein- and RNA-containing vesicles released from activated platelets. We hypothesized that factors carried by PMPs might influence the production of platelets from HSPCs, in a positive feedback fashion. Here we show that, during mouse acute liver injury, the density of megakaryocyte in the bone marrow increases following an increase in circulating PMPs, but without thrombopoietin (TPO) upregulation. In vitro, PMPs are internalized by HSPCs and drive them toward a megakaryocytic fate. Mechanistically, miR-1915-3p, a miRNA highly enriched in PMPs, is transported to target cells and suppresses the expression levels of Rho GTPase family member B, thereby inducing megakaryopoiesis. In addition, direct injection of PMPs into irradiated mice increases the number of megakaryocytes and platelets without affecting TPO levels. In conclusion, our data reveal that PMPs have a role in promoting megakaryocytic differentiation and platelet production.

RESUMO

AIMS: The purpose of this study was to investigate the protective effects of puerarin and elucidate the underlying mechanisms of puerarin in myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (MI/R) injury. MAIN METHODS: C57BL/6 mice were exposed to puerarin (100 mg/kg) with or without the SIRT1 inhibitor nicotinamide (500 mg/kg) and then subjected to MI/R operation. Myocardial infarct size, serum creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB) activity, apoptotic cell death, and cardiac structure and function were examined to evaluate MI/R injury. RT-PCR and western blotting were used to determine the inflammatory response and inflammasome activation, as well as activation of SIRT1/NF-κB pathway. RESULTS: Puerarin significantly reduced myocardial infarct size, serum CK-MB activity, and apoptotic cell death, and improved cardiac structural damage and dysfunction. Moreover, puerarin notably decreased the mRNA and protein levels of TNF-α, IL-6, and IL-1ß, indicating that puerarin attenuated MI/R-induced inflammation. Furthermore, puerarin markedly decreased the protein levels of Ac-NF-κB, NLRP3, cleaved caspase-1, cleaved IL-1ß, and cleaved IL-18 and increased the protein level of SIRT1. More importantly, the SIRT1 inhibitor nicotinamide prevented these puerarin-induced cardioprotective effects and regulation of the SIRT1/NF-κB pathway, as well as the NLRP3 inflammasome activation. CONCLUSION: Puerarin protected against MI/R injury by inhibiting inflammatory responses probably via the SIRT1/NF-κB pathway, and inhibition of the NLRP3 inflammasome was also involved in puerarin-induced cardioprotective effects. These results suggest that puerarin may be a novel candidate for the treatment of ischemic heart disease.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Acute type A aortic dissection with a dissection flap extending into the sinus segment often involves the commissures and the coronary ostia. In most cases, the intimal flap must be retained in order to restore aortic valve competence and reconstruct the coronary ostia. Residual dissection flap has the potential risks of proximal bleeding and adverse effects on long-term durability. We established a novel technique to reconstruct the aortic root using a pericardial autograft and significantly reduce remnant dissection tissues. CASE PRESENTATION: A 50-year-old female was admitted to our center with acute anterior chest pain and backache lasting about 10 h. Computed tomographic (CT) scans showed type A aortic dissection, with both coronary ostia being involved. Doppler echocardiography showed moderate aortic insufficiency. The dissection intimal flap was removed to the normal aorta wall near the annulus at the noncoronary sinus, leaving a 5 mm rim of intimal flap near the commissures and coronary ostia. Using a pericardial patch as a new aortic wall to reconstruct the root while preserving the aortic adventitia to fix and strengthen the new pericardial aortic wall. Ascending aorta and total arch replacement combined with frozen elephant trunk procedure was performed at the same time. The patient got an uneventful postoperative course. CONCLUSION: Aortic root repair with a pericardial autograft is a safe and effective technique to treat acute type A dissection involving the sinus. Using this technique, residual dissection tissues could be significantly reduced, which subsequently decreases the risk of proximal bleeding and hence increases long-term durability.

RESUMO

New energy vehicle (NEV), an Eco-friendly innovation to alleviate the problems of energy scarcity and environmental pollution, is increasingly popular in many countries. Various new energy vehicles are provided with quantity of basic information (e.g., performance, quality, and price), which hinders potential users from effectively finding the most desired or interested new energy vehicles to satisfy their personalized requirements. This paper proposes a three-stage recommendation method for facilitating users to find the proper NEV considering users' preferences and social trust relationship. In the first stage, the users' preferences on evaluation criteria are determined by best-worst method (BWM) through hesitant fuzzy preference comparison vectors. In the second stage, the users' demographic similarity is obtained considering different formats of information, and then users' trust degrees are generated from the entire propagation paths using n dimensional path-ordering-induced order-weighted averaging (NP-IOWA) operator, thereby obtaining the trust-based similarity. In the third stage, the comprehensive user-rating matrix is constructed with the obtained weights, and then, it is combined with the trust-based similarity to recommend NEV based on collaborative filtering technique. A case study is given to illustrate the feasibility of the proposed method and the comparative analysis is conducted to show the advantages of the proposed method.

RESUMO

Pepino mosaic virus (PepMV) causes severe disease in tomato and other Solanaceous crops around globe. To effectively study and manage this viral disease, researchers need new, sensitive, and high-throughput approaches for viral detection. In this study, we purified PepMV particles from the infected Nicotiana benthamiana plants and used virions to immunize BALB/c mice to prepare hybridomas secreting anti-PepMV monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). A panel of highly specific and sensitive murine mAbs (15B2, 8H6, 23D11, 20D9, 3A6, and 8E3) could be produced through cell fusion, antibody selection, and cell cloning. Using the mAbs as the detection antibodies, we established double antibody sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (DAS-ELISA), Dot-ELISA, and Tissue print-ELISA for detecting PepMV infection in tomato plants. Resulting data on sensitivity analysis assays showed that both DAS-ELISA and Dot-ELISA can efficiently monitor the virus in PepMV-infected tissue crude extracts when diluted at 1:1 310 720 and 1:20 480 (weight/volume ratio (w/v), g/mL), respectively. Among the three methods developed, the Tissue print-ELISA was found to be the most practical detection technique. Survey results from field samples by the established serological approaches were verified by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and DNA sequencing, demonstrating all three serological methods are reliable and effective for monitoring PepMV. Anti-PepMV mAbs and the newly developed DAS-ELISA, Dot-ELISA, and Tissue print-ELISA can benefit PepMV detection and field epidemiological study, and management of this viral disease, which is already widespread in tomato plants in Yunnan Province of China.

RESUMO

Electrets are dielectric materials that have a quasi-permanent dipole polarization. A single-molecule electret is a long-sought-after nanoscale component because it can lead to miniaturized non-volatile memory storage devices. The signature of a single-molecule electret is the switching between two electric dipole states by an external electric field. The existence of these electrets has remained controversial because of the poor electric dipole stability in single molecules. Here we report the observation of a gate-controlled switching between two electronic states in Gd@C82. The encapsulated Gd atom forms a charged centre that sets up two single-electron transport channels. A gate voltage of ±11 V (corresponding to a coercive field of ~50 mV Å-1) switches the system between the two transport channels with a ferroelectricity-like hysteresis loop. Using density functional theory, we assign the two states to two different permanent electrical dipole orientations generated from the Gd atom being trapped at two different sites inside the C82 cage. The two dipole states are separated by a transition energy barrier of 11 meV. The conductance switching is then attributed to the electric-field-driven reorientation of the individual dipole, as the coercive field provides the necessary energy to overcome the transition barrier.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: To determine the predictive factors of initial and long-term adherence to positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy and factors leading to an unfavorable shift of PAP compliance. METHODS: This follow-up study was comprised of newly diagnosed patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) amenable to PAP therapy from January 2017 to April 2019. Information on basic demographics, comorbidities, and sleep-related symptoms were collected. PAP adherence data were collected at the end of the first week and the third month. RESULTS: Of 166 patients enrolled, data from 142 (86%) were in the final analysis. Overall PAP usage was worse at 3 months declining from the first week. After adjusting for age and gender, multinomial logistic regression analysis showed that a small number of sleep-related symptoms (OR, 0.69; 95% CI, 0.52-0.91) and low arousal threshold (ArTH) (OR, 4.44; 95% CI, 1.52-12.98) were associated with higher odds of noncompliance. Low ArTH (OR, 2.87; 95% CI, 1.09-7.57) and lower body mass index (BMI) (OR, 0.88; 95% CI, 0.78-0.99) increased the risk of compliance-to-noncompliance shift. Sixty-two patients with polysomnography were analyzed separately. After adjustment for age and gender, poor sleep efficiency (OR, 0.80; 95% CI, 0.68-0.94) was associated with higher odds of consistent noncompliance. Low ArTH (OR, 15.36; 95% CI, 1.44-164.24) increased the risk of compliance-to-noncompliance shift in this subgroup. CONCLUSIONS: Lower BMI and low ArTH were associated with an unfavorable shift of PAP compliance over time in patients with OSA, which was different from the predictors of consistent PAP noncompliance of patients with OSA.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the protective effect of curcumin extracted from Jianghuang (Rhizoma Curcumae Longae) against ultraviolet B (UVB) and the possible mechanism. METHODS: Effects of curcumin were detected in vivo and in vitro. Morphological changes of white guinea pig skin were assessed by hematoxylin and eosin staining. HaCaT cell proliferation was measured by 3-[4,5-dimethylthylthiazol-2-yl]-2,5 diphenyltetrazolium broide (MTT) assays. The cell cycle distribution, apoptotic rate, level of reactive oxygen species (ROS), mitochondrial membrane potential, and intracellullar calcium ion concentration of HaCaT cells were detected by flow cytometry. Antioxidant levels in skin tissues and HaCat cells were measured by biochemical methods. RESULTS: UVB inhibited in vitro cell proliferation by inducing G2/M arrest, increasing ROS, apoptosis, and necrosis, and decreasing B-cell lymphoma-2, and increasing Bax, cytochrome c, and caspase-3 levels. CONCLUSION: Curcumin blocks the effects of UVB by reducing ROS and apoptosis, and reversing UVB-induced changes in the expression of apoptotic proteins. The mitochondrial pathway is involved in curcumin-regulated apoptosis.

RESUMO

Adenosine Deaminases that act on RNA (ADARs) are enzymes that catalyze adenosine to inosine conversion in dsRNA, a common form of RNA editing. Mutations in the human ADAR1 gene are known to cause disease and recent studies have identified ADAR1 as a potential therapeutic target for a subset of cancers. However, efforts to define the mechanistic effects for disease associated ADAR1 mutations and the rational design of ADAR1 inhibitors are limited by a lack of structural information. Here, we describe the combination of high throughput mutagenesis screening studies, biochemical characterization and Rosetta-based structure modeling to identify unique features of ADAR1. Importantly, these studies reveal a previously unknown zinc-binding site on the surface of the ADAR1 deaminase domain which is important for ADAR1 editing activity. Furthermore, we present structural models that explain known properties of this enzyme and make predictions about the role of specific residues in a surface loop unique to ADAR1.

RESUMO

Background: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) was highly prevalent in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). Cathepsin S (CTSS), a cysteine protease, is involved in the inflammatory activity in T2D and hypoxia conditions. The aim of the study was to evaluate whether CTSS could be involved in the inflammatory reaction of OSA in patients with T2D. Methods: We included 158 participants in this study matched for age, gender, and body mass index in 4 groups (control, non-OSA&T2D, OSA&non-T2D, and OSA&T2D). After overnight polysomnography, we collected the clinical data including anthropometrical characteristics, blood pressure, and fasting blood samples in the morning. Plasma CTSS concentration was evaluated using the human Magnetic Luminex Assay. Results: Compared with the control group, both the non-OSA&T2D group and the OSA&non-T2D group showed higher CTSS levels. Plasma CTSS expression was significantly increased in subjects with OSA&T2D compared to subjects with non-OSA&T2D. The OSA&T2D group had higher CTSS levels than the OSA&non-T2D group, but there were no statistically significant differences. Plasma CTSS levels showed significant correlation with the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) (r = 0.559, P < 0.001) and plasma fasting blood glucose (r = 0.427, P < 0.001). After adjusting confounding factors, plasma CTSS levels were independently associated with the AHI (Beta: 0.386, 95% confidence intervals (CI): 21.988 to 57.781; P < 0.001). Furthermore, we confirmed the higher pinpoint accuracy of plasma CTSS in the diagnosis of OSA (area under the curve: 0.868). Conclusions: Plasma CTSS expression was significantly elevated in the OSA&T2D group and was independently associated with the AHI; it could be a biomarker with a positive diagnostic value on diagnosing OSA among patients with T2D.

RESUMO

Water pollution from antibiotics has attracted a lot of attention for its serious threat to human health. In this study, a magnetic adsorbent (zinc ferrite/activated carbon (ZnFe2O4/AC) was synthesized via microwave method to effectively remove gemifioxacin mesylate (GEM) and moxifloxacin hydrochloride (MOX). Based on the porosity of AC and the magnetism of ZnFe2O4, the resulting ZnFe2O4/AC has high adsorption capacities and can be easily separated from the solid-liquid system via a magnetic field. The largest adsorption capacities for GEM and MOX can reach up to 433.4 mg g-1 and 388.8 mg g-1, respectively, higher than those of reported adsorbents such as MIL-101 and MOF-808. Fastest adsorptions of GEM and MOX were found at 5 min, and solution pH and coexisting salts do not have a significant influence on the adsorption process. The adsorption mechanism analysis indicates that electrostatic interaction and H-bond interaction contribute to the effective adsorption.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Red blood cells (RBCs) derived from patients who receive testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may be considered eligible for component production and transfusion. The aim of this study was to identify testosterone-dependent changes in RBC metabolism and to evaluate its impact on susceptibility to hemolysis during cold storage. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: We characterized stored RBCs from two cohorts of TRT patients who were matched with control donors (no TRT) based upon sex, age, and ethnicity. We further evaluated the impact of testosterone deficiency (orchiectomy) on RBC metabolism in FVB/NJ mice. RBC metabolites were quantified by ultra-high-pressure liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry. RBC storage stability was determined in RBC units from TRT and controls by quantifying storage, osmotic, and oxidative hemolysis. RESULTS: Orchiectomy in mice was associated with significant (P < 0.05) changes in RBC metabolism as compared with intact males including increased levels of acyl-carnitines, long-chain fatty acids (eg, docosapentaenoic acids), arginine, and dopamine. Stored RBCs from TRT patients exhibited higher levels of pentose phosphate pathway metabolites, glutathione, and oxidized purines (eg, hypoxanthine), suggestive of increased activation of antioxidant pathways in this group. Further analyses indicated significant changes in free fatty acids and acyl-carnitines in response to testosterone therapies. With regard to hemolysis, TRT was associated with enhanced susceptibility to osmotic hemolysis. Correlation analyses identified acyl-carnitines as significant modifiers of RBC predisposition to osmotic and oxidative hemolysis. CONCLUSIONS: These observations provide new insights into testosterone-mediated changes in RBC metabolome and biology that may impact the storage capacity and posttransfusion efficacy of RBCs from TRT donors.

RESUMO

The aim of this study is to replicate the findings from previous research about the psychometric properties of the Mandarin Chinese version of the Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory-Revised (OCI-R), which assesses the presence of symptoms obsessive-compulsive disorder and the distress associated with those symptoms. The final clinical sample included 80 participants from multiple psychiatric outpatient clinics in China. Participants completed the following questionnaires: the OCI-R, the Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scale (DASS-21), the Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive Scale-II (Y-BOCS-II), and the Clinical Global Impressions Scale, Severity (CGI-S). The Mandarin Chinese version of the OCI-R demonstrated good internal consistency for the total scale and each subscale. Good convergent and divergent validity was established. The Mandarin Chinese version of the OCI-R demonstrated good psychometric properties. Further research is needed to examine the factor structure of the Chinese version of the OCI-R and the extent to which it aligns with the original version.

RESUMO

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common metabolic and reproductive endocrinopathies. However, few studies have tried to develop a diagnostic model based on gene biomarkers. In this study, we applied a computational method by combining two machine learning algorithms, including random forest (RF) and artificial neural network (ANN), to identify gene biomarkers and construct diagnostic model. We collected gene expression data from Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database containing 76 PCOS samples and 57 normal samples; five datasets were utilized, including one dataset for screening differentially expressed genes (DEGs), two training datasets, and two validation datasets. Firstly, based on RF, 12 key genes in 264 DEGs were identified to be vital for classification of PCOS and normal samples. Moreover, the weights of these key genes were calculated using ANN with microarray and RNA-seq training dataset, respectively. Furthermore, the diagnostic models for two types of datasets were developed and named neuralPCOS. Finally, two validation datasets were used to test and compare the performance of neuralPCOS with other two set of marker genes by area under curve (AUC). Our model achieved an AUC of 0.7273 in microarray dataset, and 0.6488 in RNA-seq dataset. To conclude, we uncovered gene biomarkers and developed a novel diagnostic model of PCOS, which would be helpful for diagnosis.

RESUMO

Background: We investigated whether ADAMTS9-AS2 and CADM2 were related to esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). Methodology: ESCC microarray datasets and reverse transcriptase qualitative PCR were used to analyze ADAMTS9-AS2 and CADM2 expression. Results: The GSE120356 and GSE33810 datasets identified ADAMTS9-AS2 and CADM2 as the candidates and ADAMTS9-AS2 and CADM2 expression was downregulated in ESCC. ADAMTS9-AS2 and CADM2 were positively correlated with ESCC. ADAMTS9-AS2 and CADM2 expression could discriminate ESCC from normal tissue. Five-year overall survival was shorter in underexpressed ADAMTS9-AS2 patients, and CADM2 expression level was related to 5-year overall survival. ADAMTS9-AS2 and CADM2 expression were independent prognosis indicators in ESCC patients. Conclusion: Our findings shed new light on the clinical significance of ADAMTS9-AS2 and CADM2 in ESCC carcinogenesis.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of scaling and root planing (SRP) on serum C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in patients with moderate to severe chronic periodontitis. METHODS: We searched the PubMed, Web of Science, EMBASE, Cochrane, CNKI, Wanfang, and VIP databases from the inception to July 8th, 2019. Two reviewers independently screened literature, extracted data, and evaluated the bias risk of included studies. Then, a meta-analysis was performed using RevMan 5.3 software. RESULTS: A total of 13 randomized controlled clinical trials and 12 prospective clinical trials were included. Meta-analysis showed that serum CRP levels decreased at 2 and 3 months after SRP (P<0.05), and no significant difference in serum CRP levels was found at 6 months (P=0.49). CONCLUSIONS: SRP can reduce serum CRP levels in systematically healthy patients with moderate to severe chronic periodontitis at 2 and 3 months after SRP.
