How Pioneer Transcription Factors Search for Target Sites on Nucleosomal DNA.

J Phys Chem B 2022 May 27. Epub 2022 May 27.

Department of Physics and Astronomy, Rice University, Houston, Texas 77005, United States.

All major biological processes start after protein molecules known as transcription factors detect specific regulatory sequences on DNA and initiate genetic expression by associating to them. But in eukaryotic cells, much of the DNA is covered by nucleosomes and other chromatin structures, preventing transcription factors from binding to their targets. At the same time, experimental studies show that there are several classes of proteins, called "pioneer transcription factors", that are able to reach the targets on nucleosomal DNA; however, the underlying microscopic mechanisms remain not well understood.

Anal Methods 2022 May 27. Epub 2022 May 27.

School of Pharmacy, Xi'an Medical University, Xi'an, Shaanxi 710021, PR China.

To overcome the existing difficulty in distinguishing ferric from ferrous ions, a rhodamine-containing probe was designed to combine with Fe based on an opening-closing transformation of the spirolactam ring in the rhodamine moiety. Through a specific and stoichiometric fluorescence response towards Fe by 1 : 1 binding accompanied by an obvious color change in the recognition process of Fe, a "naked-eye" detection method of Fe in an aqueous environment is possible. Theoretical calculations gave a possible recognition mechanism of the probe-Fe system. Read More

University of Oxford, Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory, South Parks Road, OX1 3QR, Oxford, UNITED KINGDOM.

A family of novel halogen bonding (XB) and hydrogen bonding (HB) heteroditopic [2]rotaxane host systems constructed by  active metal template (AMT) methodology, were studied for their ability to cooperatively recognise lithium halide (LiX) ion-pairs. 1 H NMR ion-pair titration experiments in CD 3 CN:CDCl 3 solvent mixtures revealed a notable "switch-on" of halide anion binding in the presence of a co-bound lithium cation, with rotaxane hosts demonstrating selectivity for LiBr over LiI. The strength of halide binding was shown to greatly increase with increasing number of halogen bond donors integrated into the interlocked cavity, where an all-XB rotaxane was found to be the most potent host for LiBr.

Inorg Chem 2022 May 27. Epub 2022 May 27.

Elements Strategy Initiative for Catalysts and Batteries (ESICB), Kyoto University, 1-30 Goryo-Ohara, Nishikyo-ku, Kyoto 615-8245, Japan.

N-H σ-bond activation of alkylamine by Ni(PCy) was investigated using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. When simple alkylamine NHMe is a reactant, both concerted oxidative addition in Ni(PCy)(NHMe) and ligand-to-ligand H transfer reaction in Ni(PCy)(CH)(NHMe) are endergonic and need a high activation energy. When NH(Me)(Bs) (Bs = SOPh, a model of tosyl group used in experiments) is a reactant, both reactions are exergonic and occur easily with a much smaller activation energy. Read More

Adv Sci (Weinh) 2022 May 26:e2201147. Epub 2022 May 26.

State Key Laboratory of Advanced Electromagnetic Engineering and Technology, School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, 430074, China.

Lithium metal anodes have long been considered as "holy grail" in the field of energy storage batteries, but dendrite growth and large volume changes hinder their practical applications. Herein, a facile and eco-friendly CF plasma treatment is employed for the surface modification of Li anodes, and an artificial layer consisting of LiF and Li C is fabricated for the first time. Experimental results and theoretical calculations reveal that the high adsorption energy of LiF and low Li diffusion barriers in Li C induce uniform nucleation and planar growth of Li, guaranteeing a stable and dendrite-free Li structure during the repeated plating/stripping process of cycling.

Probing function in ligand-gated ion channels without measuring ion transport.

J Gen Physiol 2022 Jun 25;154(6). Epub 2022 May 25.

Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL.

Although the functional properties of ion channels are most accurately assessed using electrophysiological approaches, a number of experimental situations call for alternative methods. Here, working on members of the pentameric ligand-gated ion channel (pLGIC) superfamily, we focused on the practical implementation of, and the interpretation of results from, equilibrium-type ligand-binding assays. Ligand-binding studies of pLGICs are by no means new, but the lack of uniformity in published protocols, large disparities between the results obtained for a given parameter by different groups, and a general disregard for constraints placed on the experimental observations by simple theoretical considerations suggested that a thorough analysis of this classic technique was in order.
