Influence of nucleobase stoichiometry on the self-assembly of ABC triblock copolymers
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-05-11)
ABC triblock copolymers bearing adenine- and thymine-functionalized external blocks self-assembled into long-range, ordered lamellar microphase-separated morphologies on non-patterned substrates. Intermolecular hydrogen ...
A New Topological Degree Theory for Perturbations of Demicontinuous Operators and Applications to Nonlinear Equations with Nonmonotone Nonlinearities
Let 𝑋 be a real reflexive locally uniformly convex Banach space with locally uniformly convex dual space 𝑋∗. Let 𝑇 : 𝑋 ⊇ 𝐷(𝑇)→ 2𝑋∗ be maximal monotone of type 𝚪𝜙 𝑑 (i.e., there exist 𝑑 ≥ 0 and a nondecreasing ...
Polymorphic tandem repeats within gene promoters act as modifiers of gene expression and DNA methylation in humans
Despite representing an important source of genetic variation, tandem repeats (TRs) remain poorly studied due to technical difficulties. We hypothesized that TRs can operate as expression (eQTLs) and methylation (mQTLs) ...
Comparing oxytocin and cortisol regulation in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, hydrocortisone challenge pilot study in children with autism and typical development
(Springer New York, 2016-08-18)
Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) show marked impairment in social functioning and poor adaptation to new and changing contexts, which may be influenced by underlying regulatory processes. Oxytocin (OT) and ...
mer-Trichloridotris(tetrahydrothiophene-κS)-iridium(III): preparation and comparison with other mer trichloridotris(tetrahydrothiophene-κS)metal complexes
(International Union of Crystallography, 2016-08-09)
The title complex, [IrCl₃(C₄H₈S)₃], was prepared according to a literature method. A suitable crystal was obtained by diffusion of pentane into a dichloromethane solution and analyzed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction ...
Selective advantage of trisomic human cells cultured in nonstandard conditions
An abnormal chromosome number, a condition known as aneuploidy, is a ubiquitous feature of cancer cells. A number of studies have shown that aneuploidy impairs cellular fitness. However, there is also evidence that aneuploidy ...
Ureido cytosine and cytosine-containing acrylic copolymers
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-10-12)
Regioselective Michael addition afforded a novel N1-substituted cytosine acrylate monomer for the synthesis of acrylic random copolymers with cytosine pendant groups. Quantitative post-functionalization converted cytosine ...
Styrenic DABCO salt-containing monomers for the synthesis of novel charged polymers
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-04-25)
A facile, two-step synthesis afforded styrenic DABCO salt monomers bearing two cyclic quaternary ammonium cations. Free radical polymerization of the DABCO salt monomers yielded homopolymers and copolymers with n-butyl ...
Effect of intercalator and Lewis acid-base branched peptide complex formation: boosting affinity towards HIV-1 RRE RNA
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-06-06)
High throughput screening of a 4096 compound library of boronic acid and acridine containing branched peptides revealed compounds that have dissociation constants in the low nanomolar regime for HIV-1 RRE IIB RNA. We ...
