TiC2: a new two-dimensional sheet beyond MXenes.
Beijing, China. In Nanoscale, Jan 2016
When Ti is replaced with other transition metal centers, diverse new MC2 sheets containing C[double bond, length as m-dash]C dimers can be formed, the properties of which merit further investigation.
Differential expression of feeding-related hypothalamic neuropeptides in the first generation of quails divergently selected for low or high feed efficiency.
Fayetteville, United States. In Neuropeptides, Jan 2016
Indeed, the expression of NPY, POMC, CART, CRH, melanocortin system (MC1R, MC2R, MC4R, MC5R), ORX, mTOR and ACCα was significantly decreased, however ORXR1/2, AMPKα1, S6K1 and STAT1, 5 and 6 were increased in high compared to low FE males (P<0.05).
Exploring the efficacy of wastewater-grown microalgal biomass as a biofertilizer for wheat.
Chandīgarh, India. In Environ Sci Pollut Res Int, Jan 2016
The present investigation was undertaken to evaluate two formulations (formulation with unicellular microalgae (MC1) and formulation with filamentous microalgae (MC2); T4 and T5, respectively), prepared using wastewater-grown microalgal biomass, as a biofertilizer (after mixing with vermiculite/compost as a carrier) in wheat crop (Triticum aestivum L. HD2967) under controlled conditions.
Hypothesis of the neuroendocrine cortisol pathway gene role in the comorbidity of depression, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
Philadelphia, United States. In Appl Clin Genet, 2013
We hypothesize that HPA axis hyperactivation may be due to variants in the genes of the CRH receptors (CRHR1, CRHR2), corticotropin receptors (or melanocortin receptors, MC1R-MC5R), glucocorticoid receptor (NR3C1), mineralocorticoid receptor (NR3C2), and of the FK506 binding protein 51 (FKBP5), and that these variants may be partially responsible for the clinical association of depression, T2D and MetS.
