Precipitation and transformation of σ phase in a selective laser melted high-chromium superalloy subjected to heat treatment.

Micron 2021 Jul 15;149:103113. Epub 2021 Jul 15.

State Key Laboratory of Powder Metallurgy, Central South University, Changsha 410083, PR China.

A commercial high-chromium contained GH648 superalloy was fabricated by selective laser melting (SLM), followed by solution treatment at 1140 °C for 1 h and subsequent aging treatment at 900 °C for 16 h. The precipitation and transformation of σ phase has been characterized. It has been shown that σ precipitates formed after solution treatment, attributed to the segregation of Mo element in the subgrain boundaries and also the difference between the diffusion ability of subgrain boundaries and lattice.

Purification and characterization of an amyloidogenic repeat domain from the functional amyloid Pmel17.

Protein Expr Purif 2021 Jul 19:105944. Epub 2021 Jul 19.

Laboratory of Protein Conformation and Dynamics, Biochemistry and Biophysics Center, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health, United States. Electronic address:

The pre-melanosomal protein (Pmel17) is a human functional amyloid that supports melanin biosynthesis within melanocytes. This occurs in the melanosome, a membrane-bound organelle with an acidic intraluminal pH. The repeat region of Pmel17 (RPT, residues 315-444) has been previously shown to form amyloid aggregates under acidic melanosomal conditions, but not under neutral cytosolic conditions, when expressed and purified using a C-terminal hexa-histidine tag (RPT-His).

Structural Insights into Notum Covalent Inhibition.

J Med Chem 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

Division of Structural Biology, Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics, University of Oxford, Oxford OX3 7BN, U.K.

The carboxylesterase Notum hydrolyzes a palmitoleate moiety from Wingless/Integrated(Wnt) ligands and deactivates Wnt signaling. Notum inhibitors can restore Wnt signaling which may be of therapeutic benefit for pathologies such as osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease. We report the identification of a novel class of covalent Notum inhibitors, 4-(indolin-1-yl)-4-oxobutanoate esters. Read More

Biomacromolecules 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

Department of Orthopedics & Physical Rehabilitation, University of Massachusetts Medical School, 55 Lake Avenue North, Worcester, Massachusetts 01655, United States.

We report independent and synergistic modulations of the stiffness and viscoelasticity of ClickGels, formed by a combination of the bio-orthogonal covalent and dynamic noncovalent cross-linking, by covalently incorporating nonionic, zwitterionic, or anionic polymer brushes. Tethering nonionic and zwitterionic brushes at the cost of noncovalent cross-linking increased stiffness and slowed stress relaxation, respectively, without altering the other properties. Meanwhile, tethering anionic brushes significantly increased ClickGel stiffness, while also slowing its stress relaxation. Read More

3'-Terminal Repair-Powered Dendritic Nanoassembly of Polyadenine Molecular Beacons for One-Step Quantification of Alkaline Phosphatase in Human Serum.

Anal Chem 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

College of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, Collaborative Innovation Center of Functionalized Probes for Chemical Imaging in Universities of Shandong, Key Laboratory of Molecular and Nano Probes, Ministry of Education, Shandong Provincial Key Laboratory of Clean Production of Fine Chemicals, Shandong Normal University, Jinan 250014, China.

Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an important hydrolase with crucial roles in biological processes, and the dysregulation of ALP may cause various human diseases. The conventional ALP assays usually involve cumbersome procedures with poor sensitivity. Herein, taking advantage of intrinsic superiorities of molecular beacons (MBs) and unique features of terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT), we demonstrate for the first time the 3'-terminal repair-powered dendritic nanoassembly of polyadenine (A) MBs for one-step quantification of ALP in human serum.

Raman imaging of Micrasterias: new insights into shape formation.

Protoplasma 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

Department of Nanobiotechnology, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU), 1190, Vienna, Austria.

The algae Micrasterias with its star-shaped cell pattern is a perfect unicellular model system to study morphogenesis. How the indentations are formed in the primary cell wall at exactly defined areas puzzled scientists for decades, and they searched for chemical differences in the primary wall of the extending tips compared to the resting indents. We now tackled the question by Raman imaging and scanned in situ Micrasterias cells at different stages of development. Read More

Signal strength controls the rate of polarization within CTLs during killing.

J Cell Biol 2021 Oct 22;220(10). Epub 2021 Jul 22.

Cambridge Institute for Medical Research, Biomedical Campus, Cambridge, UK.

Cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs) are key effector cells in the immune response against viruses and cancers, killing targets with high precision. Target cell recognition by CTL triggers rapid polarization of intracellular organelles toward the synapse formed with the target cell, delivering cytolytic granules to the immune synapse. Single amino acid changes within peptides binding MHC class I (pMHCs) are sufficient to modulate the degree of killing, but exactly how this impacts the choreography of centrosome polarization and granule delivery to the target cell remains poorly characterized.

Inorg Chem 2021 Jul 22. Epub 2021 Jul 22.

Universal Display Corporation, Ewing, New Jersey 08618, United States.

1-Phenyl-3-(1-phenyl-1-(pyridin-2-yl)ethyl)isoquinoline (HMeL) has been prepared by Pd(-XantPhos)-catalyzed "" to synthesize new phosphorescent red iridium(III) emitters (601-732 nm), including the carbonyl derivative Ir(κ--,'--,'-MeL)Cl(CO) and the acetylacetonate compound Ir(κ--,'--,'-MeL)(acac). The tetradentate 6e-donor ligand (6tt') of these complexes is formed by two different bidentate units, namely, an orthometalated 2-phenylisoquinoline and an orthometalated 2-benzylpyridine. The link between the bidentate units reduces the number of possible stereoisomers of the structures [6tt' + 3b] (3b = bidentate 3e-donor ligand), with respect to a [3b + 3b' + 3b″] emitter containing three free bidentate units, and it permits a noticeable stereocontrol.

Cultivating the physician workforce: Recruiting, training, and retaining physicians to meet the needs of the population.

Med Teach 2021 Jul;43(sup2):S39-S48

University of California Davis School of Medicine, Sacramento, CA, USA.

In the 10 years since the Lancet Commission on Education of Health Professionals for the 21st Century suggested the changes necessary to transform medical education, the United States remains plagued by shortages of physicians and maldistribution of the physician workforce. Minoritized and rural communities usually suffer the most, with widely documented health disparities across the United States by race, ethnicity, gender identity, education, and zip code. Medical schools can respond by recruiting students more likely to practice in these settings and training them to address the community needs. Read More

Analysis of Milk Using a Portable Potentiometric Electronic Tongue Based on Five Polymeric Membrane Sensors.

Front Chem 2021 5;9:706460. Epub 2021 Jul 5.

Group UVASENS, Escuela de Ingenierías Industriales, Universidad de Valladolid, Valladolid, Spain.

A portable potentiometric electronic tongue (PE-tongue) was developed and applied to evaluate the quality of milk with different fat content (skimmed, semi-skimmed, and whole) and with different nutritional content (classic, calcium-enriched, lactose-free, folic acid-enriched, and enriched in sterols of vegetal origin). The system consisted of a simplified array of five sensors based on PVC membranes, coupled to a data logger. The five sensors were selected from a larger set of 20 sensors by applying the genetic algorithm (GA) to the responses to compounds usually found in milk including salts (KCl, CaCl, and NaCl), sugars (lactose, glucose, and galactose), and organic acids (citric acid and lactic acid).
