A new fluorescent sensing platform based on ultrathin metal-organic framework (MOF) nanosheets (MnDMS) was prepared from the flexible ligand 2,2-dimethylsuccinate and Mn ions. The MnDMS nanoparticles can be obtained by simply ultrasonication of the MnDMS crystal, and then can be exfoliated into nanosheets by Li-intercalation method. The MnDMS nanosheets can be easily assembled with biological probes, leading to efficient fluorescence quenching of the fluorophore tagged ssDNA and microRNA (miRNA). By using a hybridization chain reaction (HCR) strategy, the fluorescence signal can be obviously amplified. A good linearity was obtained from 1 pM to 200 pM of target ssDNA, with a detection limit of 0.2 pM. The HCR/MnDMS system provides an effective way to monitor miRNA in living cells. Therefore, the MnDMS nanosheets can be used as a new kind of platform in biomedical sensing applications. © 2017

Grifolin, a natural product isolated from the mushroom Albatrellus confluens, has been reported to be a potent anti-cancer agent in nasopharyngeal carcinoma and osteosarcoma. The data obtained in this study revealed that grifolin is capable of inhibiting the growth and invasion of gastric cancer cells by inducing apoptosis and suppressing the ERK1/2 pathway. Our results support the potent utility of grifolin as an anti-tumor lead compound against gastric cancer cells.

Alleviation of hyperglycemia in chemical-induced diabetic mice has been reported after bone marrow transplantation. Nevertheless, the underlying mechanism remains elusive. In the present study, we transplanted genetically labeled primary mouse mesenchymal stem cells into the pancreas of the streptozotocin-treated hyperglycemic isogeneic mice, resulting in a decrease in blood glucose due to a recovery in beta cell mass. Further analysis revealed that the increase in beta cell mass was predominantly attributable to beta cell replication. The grafted mesenchymal stem cells did not transdifferentiate into beta cells themselves but recruited and polarized macrophages in a Stromal cell-derived factor 1-dependent manner, which in turn promoted beta cell replication. Our finding thus suggests that transplantation of autogenic mesenchymal stem cells may increase functional beta cell mass by boosting beta cell replication in diabetes. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

LEED and BEAM Plus have been formally launched for more than 10 years. They are the two most recognized building environmental assessment schemes in China. Previous works have been done on benchmarking the energy assessment of the two schemes. However, benchmarking was either based on their earlier versions of which substantial changes have been made, or focused on their assessment issues and metrics without making reference to actual building characteristics. This paper compares the energy performance assessment results of three new office buildings in China (one in Beijing and two in Shanghai) using current versions of LEED and BEAM Plus. The three office buildings were chosen for their similarities in design. The study revealed that despite the variations in different aspects between LEED and BEAM Plus, assessment results of the three studied buildings were comparable. Amongst various building end uses, energy use for air-conditioning was found dominating the assessment results. Comparison results also show that although different tariff systems are adopted in Beijing and Shanghai, the difference will not affect the assessment results as long as same tariff system is used for predicting the energy cost of the baseline and design cases. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

Under different conditions, sodium chloride crystals were colored electrolytically using an electrolysis apparatus with a pointed anode and a flat cathode. A lot of V, F, colloid C and N color centers were produced in colored crystals. Systematic spectral measurements were carried out to colored crystals. Parameters of absorption spectral bands of color centers were determined. Influence of different electrolysis conditions to color center concentration was studied. Current time curves were measured. Calculated value of activation energy of V color centers less than F color centers, and formation mechanism of color center was explained.

Degradation of fermentable monosaccharides is one of the primary concerns for acid prehydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass. Recently, in our research on degradation of pure monosaccharides in aqueous SO2 solution by gas chromatography (GC) analysis, we found that detected yield was not actual yield of each monosaccharide due to the existence of sugar-bisulfite adducts, and a new method was developed by ourselves which led to accurate detection of recovery yield of each monosaccharide in aqueous SO2 solution by GC analysis. By the use of this method, degradation of each monosaccharide in aqueous SO2 was investigated and results showed that sugar-bisulfite adducts have different inhibiting effect on degradation of each monosaccharide in aqueous SO2 because of their different stability. In addition, NMR testing also demonstrated possible existence of reaction between conjugated based HSO3 - and aldehyde group of sugars in acid system. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media.

In this study, an attempt is made to characterize and predict petroleum futures prices, using ideas gained from nonlinear dynamical theory. Data on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) of crude oil and heating oil futures are used. The R/S analysis, the power spectrum and the largest Lyapunov exponent are in close agreement with each other, providing convincing evidence regarding the presence of chaotic behavior in the daily petroleum futures prices series. Nonlinear forecast modeling based on phase space reconstruction is applied to petroleum futures prices series. The results indicate the appropriateness of the nonlinear dynamical approach for characterizing and predicting the dynamics of petroleum futures prices. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.

By letting on times and off times be unrelated convex fuzzy variables, an alternating renewal process only with fuzziness is established. Using the α-pessimistic value and the α-optimistic value of fuzzy variables, the asymptotic behaviors of on time per unit time and off time per unit time are given. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

For the proper design of supercritical fluid extraction processes, it is essential to have a sound knowledge of the mass transfer mechanism of the extraction process and the appropriate mathematical representation. In this paper, the advances and applications of kinetic models for describing supercritical fluid extraction from various solid matrices have been presented. The theoretical models overviewed here include the hot ball diffusion, broken and intact cell, shrinking core and some relatively simple models. Mathematical representations of these models have been in detail interpreted as well as their assumptions, parameter identifications and application examples. Extraction process of the analyte solute from the solid matrix by means of supercritical fluid includes the dissolution of the analyte from the solid, the analyte diffusion in the matrix and its transport to the bulk supercritical fluid. Mechanisms involved in a mass transfer model are discussed in terms of external mass transfer resistance, internal mass transfer resistance, solute-solid interactions and axial dispersion. The correlations of the external mass transfer coefficient and axial dispersion coefficient with certain dimensionless numbers are also discussed. Among these models, the broken and intact cell model seems to be the most relevant mathematical model as it is able to provide realistic description of the plant material structure for better understanding the mass-transfer kinetics and thus it has been widely employed for modeling supercritical fluid extraction of natural matters. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
