Characterization and kinetic modeling of secondary phases in squeeze cast Al alloy A380 by DSC thermal analysis

Thermal analyses on squeeze cast aluminum alloy A380 (SC A380) solidified under 90 MPa were carried out to study the microstructure development of the alloy, in which a differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) was employed. During the DSC runs, heating and cooling rates of 1, 3, 10, and 20 °C•min-1 were applied to investigate the heating and cooling effects on dissolution of...

Effects of Common Mycorrhizal Network on Plant Carbohydrates and Soil Properties in Trifoliate Orange–White Clover Association

Common mycorrhizal network (CMN) allows nutrients and signals to pass between two or more plants. In this study, trifoliate orange (Poncirus trifoliata) and white clover (Trifolium repens) were planted in a two-compartmented rootbox, separated by a 37–μm nylon mesh and then inoculated with an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus (AMF), Diversispora spurca. Inoculation with D. spurca...

Ergosterol Peroxide Isolated from Ganoderma lucidum Abolishes MicroRNA miR-378-Mediated Tumor Cells on Chemoresistance

Due to an altered expression of oncogenic factors and tumor suppressors, aggressive cancer cells have an intrinsic or acquired resistance to chemotherapeutic agents. This typically contributes to cancer recurrence after chemotherapy. microRNAs are short non-coding RNAs that are involved in both cell self-renewal and cancer development. Here we report that tumor cells transfected...
