Nitric oxide (NO) is an ancestral key signalling molecule essential for life and has enormous versatility in biological systems, including cardiovascular homeostasis, neurotransmission and immunity. Although our knowledge of NO synthases (Nos), the enzymes that synthesize NO , is substantial, the origin of a large and diversified repertoire of gene orthologues in fishes with respect to tetrapods remains a puzzle. The recent identification of in the ray-finned fish spotted gar, which was considered lost in this lineage, changed this perspective. Read More

The interaction of α- glucose with a BN-nanosheet, BN-nanotube, and BN-fullerene, was analyzed from an atomistic and electronic point of view, to evaluate such nanostructures as possible carriers and/or biosensors of the α- glucose molecule. Adsorption energies are in the range of physisorption (-0.79 eV to -0. Read More

The identification of novel platform organisms for the production and discovery of small molecules is of high interest for the pharmaceutical industry. In particular, the structural complexity of most natural products with therapeutic potential restricts an industrial production since chemical syntheses often require complex multistep routes. The amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum can be easily cultivated in bioreactors due to its planktonic growth behavior and contains numerous polyketide and terpene synthase genes with only a few compounds being already elucidated.

Emulsified vegetable oil (EVO), as one of the novel green substrates, has been widely used in subsurface remediation. In these applications, the retention behavior of EVO presents a challenge to remediation efficiency as mechanism insights into the retention of EVO is limited. Herein, Brinell funnels experiments with X-ray microtomography (XMT) were conducted to examine the drainage and retention of nanoscale EVO in porous media, with a specific focus on investigating the impact of pore straining, grain surface roughness, and interfacial effects on Nano-EVO (NEVO) retention.
