In this investigation, stoichiometric Cu–TiO2 nanocomposite is synthesized through the self-propagating high-temperature synthesis, and the effect of additional Cu contents of 10, 20, 30 wt% on mechanical and physical features of this composite was evaluated. To investigate the obtained properties of specimens, scannin...

Here, we used host sensing of small molecules by G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) as a lens to illuminate bioactive microbial metabolites that impact host physiology. We screened 144 human gut bacteria against the non-olfactory GPCRome and identified dozens of bacteria that activated both well-characterized and or...

Publication date: Available online 19 April 2019Source: Food BioscienceAuthor(s): Huri İlyasoğlu, Zheng GuoAbstractA water soluble chitosan-caffeic acid conjugate (C-CAC) was prepared by chemical modification of chitosan using activated caffeoyl with dimethyl aminopyridine as a catalyst. The C-CAC was characterized using UV–visible spectrometry, Fourier transform infrared, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopies and differential scanning calorimetry. The caffeoyl content in the C-CAC was 65 mg/g. To study the introduction of a new function into chitosan, the antioxidant activities of the synthesized C-CAC was d...

Authors: Wang L, Liu K Abstract Optogenetics is an emerging field, which uses light and molecular genetics to manipulate the activity of live cells by expressing light-sensitive proteins. With the discovery of bacteriorhodopsin, a light-sensitive bacterial protein, in 1971 Oesterhelt and Stoeckenius laid the pavement of optogenetics. However, the cross-integration of different disciplines is a little more than a decade old. The toolbox contains fluorescent sensors and optogenetic actuators which enable visualization of signaling events and manipulation of cellular activities, respectively. Neuropathic pain is a pai...

Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: Radiation Physics and ChemistryAuthor(s): D. Seetha, G. VelrajAbstractIn the present study, eight samples were selected for the spectroscopy, microscopy, X-ray diffraction and Chemometric analyses. All these samples were collected from the Chandravalli site located in Karnataka, South India. The firing technology (firing temperature and conditions) involved in the artifacts during manufacturing due to its mineralogical composition determined by FT-IR and XRD. Through vitrification factors and the high firing limit of the artifacts are correlated with the above results...
