Hydrogenolysis of glycerol aqueous solution to glycols over Ni–Co bimetallic catalyst: effect of ceria promoting

A series of Ni–Co bimetallic catalysts supported on γ-Al2O3 with different Ni/Co mass ratio were prepared by incipient wetness impregnation method for glycerol hydrogenolysis. The catalyst with a Ni/Co mass ratio of 1:3 (denoted as Ni1Co3) exhibited the highest conversion. The performance was compared with that of catalysts promoted by Ce. Moreover, the addition of Ce showed a...

Elevated Serum Gas6 Is a Novel Prognostic Biomarker in Patients with Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Objective This study explored the level and clinical significance of serum Gas6 in patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). Methods A total of 128 OSCC patients and 145 normal controls were selected. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was used to detect Gas6 concentration in sera from the OSCC patients and controls. The correlations of serum Gas6 concentration and...

Effect of ZnO incorporation on Cu–Ni/Al2O3 catalyst for glycerol hydrogenolysis in the absence of added hydrogen

A series of Cu–Ni bimetallic catalysts were developed and used for glycerol hydrogenolysis to produce 1,2-propanediol in the absence of added hydrogen along with the isopropanol as hydrogen donor. The monometallic Cu catalyst can catalyze the dehydrogenation of isopropanol effectively, but the Cu species would be oxidized to Cu+ which led to the catalyst deactivation. Ni...

Hyperuricemia and acute kidney injury secondary to spontaneous tumor lysis syndrome in low risk myelodysplastic syndrome

Yunlin Feng Tao Jiang Li Wang Background: This is a rare instance of acute kidney injury caused by hyperuricemia due to spontaneous tumor lysis syndrome and also the first case of spontaneous tumor

A comparative analysis of ESM-1 and vascular endothelial cell marker (CD34/CD105) expression on pituitary adenoma invasion

Objective Pituitary adenomas are benign neoplasms that display invasive behavior—a characteristic traditionally associated with malignancy—through an ill-defined mechanism. The role of angiogenesis-related molecules in this pathological condition remains perplexing. Our purpose is to assess the impact of endocan (endothelial cell specific molecule-1, ESM-1), CD34 and CD105 on...

Identification of QTLs associated with tissue culture response of mature wheat embryos

Mature embryo is an excellent explant for tissue culture as it is convenient to be obtained without limitation of growing seasons and development stages. However, regeneration ability of the calli from wheat mature embryos is limited, thus hindering its application. To identify genes associated with the tissue culture response (TCR) of wheat, QTLs for callus induction from mature...

Transcriptional profiling reveals molecular basis and novel genetic targets for improved resistance to multiple fermentation inhibitors in Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Background Lignocellulosic biomass is a promising source of renewable biofuels. However, pretreatment of lignocellulosic biomass generates fermentation inhibitors that adversely affect the growth of industrial microorganisms such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae and prevent economic production of lignocellulosic biofuels. A critical challenge on developing S. cerevisiae with improved...

Mixed aluminoxanes: efficient cocatalysts for bisphosphineamine/Cr(III) catalyzed ethylene tetramerization toward 1-octene

In this study, we examined catalyst systems comprising chromium(III) chloride tetrahydrofuran, diphenylphosphinoamine (PNP) ligand, and a mixed activator of methylaluminoxane (MAO) and alkylaluminum for the selective tetramerization of ethylene. By comparing the catalytic activities and the selectivities toward 1-hexene and 1-octene, we investigated the effects of various mixed...

AlignGraph: algorithm for secondary de novo genome assembly guided by closely related references

Motivation: De novo assemblies of genomes remain one of the most challenging applications in next-generation sequencing. Usually, their results are incomplete and fragmented into hundreds of contigs. Repeats in genomes and sequencing errors are the main reasons for these complications. With the rapidly growing number of sequenced genomes, it is now feasible to improve assemblies...

Integrated analysis of genome-wide DNA methylation, gene expression and protein expression profiles in molecular subtypes of WHO II-IV gliomas

Background Glioma is the most common malignant primary brain tumor among adults, among which glioblastoma (GBM) exhibits the highest malignancy. Despite current standard chemoradiation, glioma is still invariably fatal. A further insight into the molecular background of glioma is required to improve patient outcomes. Method Previous studies evaluated molecular genetic differences...

Transcriptome assembly and isoform expression level estimation from biased RNA-Seq reads

Motivation: RNA-Seq uses the high-throughput sequencing technology to identify and quantify transcriptome at an unprecedented high resolution and low cost. However, RNA-Seq reads are usually not uniformly distributed and biases in RNA-Seq data post great challenges in many applications including transcriptome assembly and the expression level estimation of genes or isoforms. Much...

Adiponectin improves NF-κB-mediated inflammation and abates atherosclerosis progression in apolipoprotein E-deficient mice

Background Atherosclerosis is a common pathological basis of cardiovascular disease. Adiponectin (APN) has been shown to have an anti-atherosclerosis effect, and the underlying mechanisms, however, are largely unknown. Nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) has also been regarded as a proatherogenic factor, mainly because of its regulation of a variety of the proinflammatory genes linked to...
