A metal tolerance protein, MTP10, is required for the calcium and magnesium homeostasis in Arabidopsis

Haiman Ge, Qiaolin Shao, Jinlin Chen, Jiahong Chen, Xueqin Li, Yu Tan, Wenzhi Lan, Lei Yang & Yuan Wang
Nutrient antagonism typically refers to the fact that too high a concentration of one nutrient inhibits the absorption of another nutrient. In plants, Ca2+ (Calcium) and Mg2+ (Magnesium) are the two most abundant divalent cations, which are known to have antagonistic interactions. Hence, maintaining their homeostasis is crucial for plant growth and development. In this study, we showed that MTP10 (Metal Tolerance Protein 10) is an important regulator for maintaining homeostasis of Mg and Ca...

T-LAK-cell-originated protein kinase (TOPK), a novel member of the mitogen-activated protein kinase family, is considered an effective therapeutic target for skin inflammation. In this study, a series (A − D) of paeonol derivatives was designed and synthesised using a fragment growing approach, and their anti-inflammatory activities against lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced nitric oxide production in RAW264.7 cells were tested. Among them, compound B12 yielded the best results (IC50 = 2.14 μM) with low toxicity (IC50 > 50...

A transcriptomic analysis of neuropathic pain in the anterior cingulate cortex after nerve injury

Yu Zhang, Shiwei Jiang, Fei Liao, Zhifeng Huang, Xin Yang, Yu Zou, Xin He, Qulian Guo & Changsheng Huang
The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) is a core brain region processing pain emotion. In this study, we performed RNA sequencing analysis to reveal transcriptomic profiles of the ACC in a rat chronic constriction injury (CCI) model. A total of 1628 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified by comparing sham-operated rats with rats of 12 hours, 1, 3, 7, and 14 days after surgery, respectively. Although these inflammatory-related DEGs were generally increased after CCI, different kinetics...

Molecular evidence to the day length in regulating the short shoot phenomenon during summer in roses (Rosa sp.)

Li Wang, Wan Jiang, Wuhua Zhang, Weitong Chen, Yu Mo, Tong Zhou, Jinzhu Zhang & Daidi Che
The short shoot phenomenon is an important phenotype underlying the economic value of roses – node number can directly affect shoot length. To elucidate the molecular mechanism of how day length affects shoot length, the effect of 8, 10, and 12 h day lengths on node number were studied. The number of nodes between the 8 and 12 h treatment groups significantly differed. Node development in the 12 h treatment group occurred significantly earlier than...

Binbin Jiang, Yunlong Chai, Xu He, Yan Wang, Bo Chen, Yang Li & Ranhong Li
A series of new acylthiourea derivatives were synthesized and characterized. The results of preliminary herbicidal activity tests showed that most compounds had good herbicidal activity against Digitaria adscendens and Amaranthus retroflexus, especially for compounds 4b (N-(2-chloro-4-methylsulfonylbenzoyl)-N’-(2-chlorophenyl) thiourea) and 4f (N-(2-chloro-4-methylsulfonylbenzoyl)-N’-(2,3-dichlorophenyl) thiourea). In vivo acetylhydroxylate synthase (AHAS) enzyme activity inhibition tests showed that all compounds had inhibitory activities against the enzyme at a concentration of 100 mg·L−1, with the highest inhibition rate up to 37.05% (compound...

E74 Like ETS Transcription Factor 3 is a Negative Regulator of Pathogenic Lamina Propria T Helper 17.1 Cells in Murine Colitis

Bo Hu, Hao Wang & Fei Xiao
Interleukin-17A (IL-17A)-expressing T cells, including T helper 17 (Th17) and T helper 17.1 (Th17.1) cells, play a significant role in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs). Identifying the mechanisms underlying the heterogeneity and plasticity of IL-17A-expressing T cells is crucial for understanding and controlling their pathogenicity. The role of E74 like ETS transcription factor 3 (ELF3) in regulating the pathogenicity of IL-17A-expressing T cells has not been studied before. Dextran sulfate sodium was used to induce acute...

MOF-derived multi-interface carbon-based composites with enhanced polarization loss and efficient microwave absorption

Hongjiao Qu, Peng Zheng, Tao Wang, Xingyu Yu, Junjie Pan, Xiaoli Fan, Tengfei Zhang, Xin Sun & Jianping He
Metal-organic framework materials (MOFs) have been widely studied because of their adjustable composition and controllable structure in the field of microwave absorption (MA). Therein, Prussian blue analogs (PBA) have attracted the attention of researchers with ultra-high metal content. However, the attenuation ability of microwave for PBA-based composites is still unsatisfactory up to now. Therefore, the NiFe/CoFe@C composites were prepared by carbonizing polymetallic PBA (NiCoFe PBA) materials in this work, and the influence of different metal...

Offshore Island Connection Line: A new perspective of coastal urban development boundary simulation and multi-scenario prediction

Fei He, Jun Yang, Yuqing Zhang, Dongqi Sun, Li Wang, Xiangming Xiao & Jianhong Xia
The urban development boundary (UDB) is a core issue in territorial spatial planning and remains a research focus in urban development. However, in the past, land use simulations of coastal cities have had some limitations. For example, new urban land outside the research boundary could not be effectively simulated, resulting in a large gap between the simulation results and reality. In this study, an artificial neural network (ANN) cellular automata (CA) model based on a...

Muyu Feng, Jinming Liang, Peng Wang, Ya’e Wang & Jie Li
Sponge iron (SI) is widely used in water treatment. As effluents from wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) require advanced treatment methodology, three forms of constructed wetlands (CWs): wetlands with sponge iron (SI), copper sulfate modified sponge iron (Cu/SI), and sponge iron coupled with solid carbon sources (C/SI), have been investigated in this paper for the removal effects of organic matter and nutrients in WWTP effluents, and the corresponding mechanisms have been analyzed. The results showed the...

An Additive Graphical Model for Discrete Data

Jun Tao, Bing Li & Lingzhou Xue
We introduce a nonparametric graphical model for discrete node variables based on additive conditional independence. Additive conditional independence is a three-way statistical relation that shares similar properties with conditional independence by satisfying the semi-graphoid axioms. Based on this relation we build an additive graphical model for discrete variables that does not suffer from the restriction of a parametric model such as the Ising model. We develop an estimator of the new graphical model via the...

Visualizing biogeochemical heterogeneity in soils and sediments: A review of advanced micro-scale sampling and imaging methods

Cai Li, Shiming Ding, Musong Chen, Zhilin Zhong, Qin Sun & Yan Wang
For soils and sediments, which are complex and heterogeneous, root-triggered processes, bioturbation of benthic communities, and local decomposition of reactive organic materials can greatly increase their biogeochemical heterogeneity. In practice, common monitoring methods can only be used to determine the centimeter- to millimeter-scale heterogeneity from vertical or horizontal one-dimensional profiles. However, significant heterogeneity exists in both soils and sediments on the millimeter to sub-millimeter scales. Therefore, in-situ and high-resolution sampling and imaging methods are essential...
