Zihao Wang Wei Xiao

Curr Genet 2020 Jul 4. Epub 2020 Jul 4.

Beijing Key Laboratory of DNA Damage Responses and College of Life Sciences, Capital Normal University, Beijing, 100048, China.

Certain replication-blocking lesions can escape DNA repair and must be bypassed to prevent fork collapse and cell death. Budding yeast DNA-damage tolerance consists of translesion DNA synthesis (TLS) and template switch. TLS utilizes specialized DNA polymerases to insert nucleotides opposite the damage site, followed by extension, allowing continual replication in the presence of lesions on the template DNA.

Effects of different carbon sources on 2,4,6-trichlorophenol degradation in the activated sludge process.

Bioprocess Biosyst Eng 2020 Jul 4. Epub 2020 Jul 4.

National Engineering Laboratory for Advanced Municipal Wastewater Treatment and Reuse Technology, Beijing University of Technology, 100 Ping Le Yuan, Chaoyang District, Beijing, 100124, People's Republic of China.

The effects of different carbon sources on the enrichment of 2,4,6TCP-degrading microbes and on reactor stability were was investigated using a lab-scale sequencing batch reactor (SBR). Glucose, sucrose, and starch were selected as different carbon sources because of the different molecular weights. The sucrose-fed activated sludge (AS) exhibited faster adaption and higher degradation rates for 2,4,6-TCP in long-term operation and typical cycles compared to that fed with glucose and starch.

IL-4 and IL-10 promotes phagocytic activity of microglia by up-regulation of TREM2.

Cytotechnology 2020 Jul 4. Epub 2020 Jul 4.

Guizhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Guiyang, 550025, China.

Triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-2 (TREM2) is an innate immune receptor that promotes phagocytosis by microglia. However, whether TREM2 is related to the stimulus-dependent phagocytic activity of microglia is unclear. In this study, the primary cultured microglia were stimulated with interferon (IFN)-γ, interleukin (IL)-4, and interleukin (IL)-10, respectively, and their phagocytic activity against microbeads and apoptotic neural stem cells (NSCs) was measured.

Mikrochim Acta 2020 Jul 4;187(8):425. Epub 2020 Jul 4.

Anhui Province Key Laboratory of Advanced Catalytic Materials and Reaction Engineering, School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Hefei University of Technology, Hefei, Anhui, 230009, People's Republic of China.

β-cyclodextrin-functionalized porous Pd@Au nanostructures (β-CD-Pd@Au) with intrinsic and enhanced peroxidase-like activity were successfully synthesized by a two-step method. The synthesized β-CD-Pd@Au can efficiently catalyze the oxidation of various substrates, such as 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB), mixture of 4-amino antipyrine (4-AAP) and 3,5-dichloro-2-hydroxy acid sodium (DHBS) (4-AAP/DHBS), and mixture of 4-AAP and N-Ethyl-N-(3-sulfopropyl)-3-methyl-aniline sodium salt (TOPS) (4-AAP/TOPS), by HO to generate visual blue, purple, and pink color, respectively. The UV-vis absorbance peak of the three β-CD-Pd@Au catalyzed the chromogenic reaction system located at 650 nm, 510 nm, and 550 nm, respectively. Read More
