The proteasome receptor DDI1 has been identified both in Drosophila photoreceptor neurons and in human neuroblastoma cells in culture as a direct substrate of UBE3A. Here, we further characterize this regulation, by identifying the UBE3A-dependent ubiquitination sites and ubiquitin chains formed on DDI1. Additionally, we found one deubiquitinating enzyme that is capable of reversing the action of UBE3A on DDI1. The complete characterization of the ubiquitination pathway of an UBE3A substrate is important...

In this study, the effect of ultrasonic waves on the wax appearance temperature (WAT) of a crude oil sample was investigated. For this purpose, the crude oil was exposed to ultrasonic radiation at 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 min. Then, the WAT of each sample was measured using the cross polarized microscope (CPM) method. The WAT was reduced to 8 °C and 12 °C at 4–8 min and 10 min, respectively. The origin of this reduction by ultrasonic radiation were studied by Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy analysis. Because of the ultrasonic radiation, the first heavy crude compounds are cracked to lighter...

ShekharAbstractTriple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is an aggressive breast cancer subtype with few therapy options besides chemotherapy. Although platinum-based drugs have shown initial activity in BRCA1-mutated TNBCs, chemoresistance remains a challenge. Here we show that RAD6B (UBE2B), a principal mediator of translesion synthesis (TLS), is overexpressed in BRCA1 wild-type and mutant TNBCs, and RAD6B overexpression correlate...

In this study, we exposed wild-type (WT) and AMPKα2−/− mice to PM2.5 every other day via intratracheal instillation for 4 weeks. After PM2.5 exposure, the AMPKα2−/− mice developed more severe lung injury and cardiac dysfunction than were developed in the WT mice; however the administration of metformin was effective in attenuating PM2.5-induced lung injury and cardiac dysfunction in both the WT and AMPKα2−/− mice. In the PM2.5-exposed mice, metformin treatment resulted in reduced systemic and pulmonary inflammation, preserved left ventricular ejection fraction, suppress...

In this study, we compared differences in gene expression in parental and CHD4-deficient cells by next-generation sequencing and Ingenuity Pathway Analysis.Key findingsWe found that β1 integrin is a downstream target gene of CHD4, which could be transcriptionally regulated by CHD4 in TNBC cells. Consistent with in vitro data, immunohistochemistry revealed that co-expression of β1 integrin and CHD4 was significantly associated with metastatic state, recurrence, and survival status in TNBC patients. It also showed a positive correlation between β1 integrin and CHD4 in vivo.SignificanceThis is the first study t...

In this study, polysaccharide blended whey protein isolate (WPI) based hydrogels were loaded with black carrot (Daucus carota) concentrate (BC) and in vitro gastrointestinal release measurements were performed. Prior to 6 h digestion in simulated intestinal fluid (SIF), all hydrogels were exposed to simulated gastric fluid (SGF) for 2 h. Pectin (PC), gum tragacanth (GT) and xanthan gum (XG) were the polysaccharides used with WPI to manipulate the release behavior. Physico-chemical changes of the hydrogels throughout the digestion were evaluated by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and nuclear mag...
