Thermodynamic controls of the Western Tibetan Vortex on Tibetan air temperature

The “Western Tibetan Vortex” (WTV)—also termed the Karakoram Vortex—dominates the middle-to-lower troposphere and the near-surface air temperature variability above the western Tibetan Plateau (TP). Here, we explore the thermodynamic mechanisms through which the WTV modulates air temperature over the western TP by diagnosing the three major terms of the thermodynamic energy...

Proteomics of the corpus callosum to identify novel factors involved in hypomyelinated Niemann-Pick Type C disease mice

Hypomyelination in the central nerves system (CNS) is one of the most obviously pathological features in Niemann-Pick Type C disease (NPC), which is a rare neurodegenerative disorder caused by mutations in the NPC intracellular cholesterol transporter 1 or 2 (Npc1 or Npc2). Npc1 plays key roles in both neurons and oligodendrocytes during myelination, however, the linkage between...

Palladium-Catalyzed Synthesis of Aldehydes from Aryl Iodides and Formic acid with Propylphosphonic Anhydride as the Activator

An interesting palladium-catalyzed carbonylative procedure for the synthesis of aromatic aldehydes from aryl iodides has been developed. By using propylphosphonic anhydride as the activator for formic acid, moderate to good yields of the corresponding aldehydes were produced with formic acid as the carbonyl and hydrogen donors. Interestingly, neither additional phosphine ligand...

Copper/iron co-catalyzed alkoxycarbonylation of unactivated alkyl bromides

Carbonylative transformations of alkyl bromides have been explored less than those of aryl halides, in part because of the high barrier to activation of aryl bromides. Additionally, alkyl-metal reagents formed in situ can tend to undergo β-hydride elimination. Here we describe a copper/iron co-catalyzed alkoxycarbonylation of unactivated alkyl bromides. In the presence of...

The Different Roles of hRAD50 in Microsatellite Stable and Unstable Colorectal Cancers

RAD50 protein is essential for DNA double-strand break repair and maintaining genomic integrity. In this study, we investigated the clinicopathological significance of hRAD50 expression and mutation in microsatellite stable (MSS) and unstable (MSI) colorectal cancers (CRCs). hRAD50 expression was examined in primary CRC (n=268), the corresponding distant (n=69) and adjacent...

Adult neurogenic deficits in HIV-1 Tg26 transgenic mice

Even in the antiretroviral treatment (ART) era, HIV-1-infected patients suffer from milder forms of HIV-1-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND). While the viral proteins Tat and gp120 have been shown to individually inhibit the proliferation and neural differentiation of neural stem cells (NSCs), no studies have characterized the effects of all the combined viral proteins on...

PINCH Expression and Its Significance in Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Particularly interesting new cysteine-histidine rich protein (PINCH), as a newly discovered protein of LIM family members, may play a role in signal transduction of integrin and growth factor, and involved in the incidence and development of tumors. PINCH protein is overexpressed in tumor-associated stroma of several types of tumors. However, there is no study of the PINCH in...

Direct synthesis of benzylic amines by palladium-catalyzed carbonylative aminohomologation of aryl halides

Benzylic amines are valuable compounds with important applications in areas including pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. The known procedures for their synthesis are limited by difficulties in functionalizing the parent aminomethyl groups. On the other hand, carbonylation reactions offer a potent method to introduce carbonyl groups and homologate carbon chains. However...

Effect of Anionic Polyacrylamide on the Structural Stability of Thickened Tailings Slurry in Pipeline Transportation

Taking the superfine tailings slurry (STS), fine tailings slurry (FTS), and unclassified tailings slurry (UTS) of a gold mine as examples, a series of laboratory shear tests were conducted to investigate the effect of anionic polyacrylamide (APAM) on the structural stability of the thickened tailings slurry in pipeline transportation. Experimental results showed that the FTS and...

Polymorphisms in the Promoter Region of Catalase Gene and Essential Hypertension

Genetic variations that predispose individuals to complex disorders, such as essential hypertension, may be found in gene coding regions, intronic regions or in gene promoter regions. Most studies have focused on gene variations that result in amino acid substitutions because they result in different isoforms of the protein, presumably resulting in differences in protein...
