1. Origin of the facet dependence in the hydrogenation catalysis of olefins: experiment and theory.

    Chemical Communications 51(60):12016 (2015) PMID 26121144

    Shape-controlled Pd nanocrystals are used as model catalysts to demonstrate facet-dependent catalysis in the hydrogenation of olefins. The close packed Pd{111} shows high catalytic activity for styrene but not for trans-stilbene. However, the open Pd{100} facets hydrogenate both olefins. DFT cal...

  3. Enhanced extracellular production of α-amylase in Bacillus subtilis by optimization of regulatory elements and over-expression of PrsA lipoprotein.

    Biotechnology Letters 37(4):899 (2015) PMID 25515799

    α-Amylase was used as a heterologous model protein to investigate the effects of promoters, signal peptides and over-expression of an extra-cytoplasmic molecular chaperone, PrsA lipoprotein, on enhancing the secretion of α-amylase in Bacillus subtilis. Four promoters and six signal peptides were...
  4. Inhibition of H3K9 methyltransferase G9a induces autophagy and apoptosis in oral squamous cell carcinoma.

    To explore whether inhibition of H3K9 Methyltransferase G9a could exert an antitumoral effect in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). First we checked G9a expression in two OSCC cell lines Tca8113 and KB. Next we used a special G9a inhibitor BIX01294 (BIX) to explore the effect of inhibition of ...

  6. Pre-oxidation of carbon/carbon composites to improve the bonding strength of Ti-Ni-Si joints

    Materials Science and Engineering: A 620:428 (2015)

    To improve the bonding properties of the interface between carbon/carbon (C/C) composites and a Ti-Ni-Si interlayer, an interlocking interface structure was obtained by a two-step technique involving pre-oxidation and hot-pressing. The results show that a porous layer could be obtained...
  7. Mechanisms for CO oxidation on Fe(iii)-OH-Pt interface: a DFT study.

    Faraday Discussions 176:381 (2015) PMID 25430777

    The full catalytic cycle that involves the oxidation of two CO molecules is investigated here by using periodic density functional calculations. To simulate the nature of Fe(OH)x/Pt nanoparticles, three possible structural models, i.e., Fe(OH)x/Pt(111), Fe(OH)x/Pt(332) and Fe(OH)x/Pt(322), are b...
  8. Characterization of a new pathovar of Agrobacterium vitis causing banana leaf blight in China.

    Journal of Basic Microbiology 55(1):129 (2015) PMID 23828501

    A new banana leaf blight was found in Nanning city, China, during a 7-year survey (2003-2009) of the bacterial diseases on banana plants. Eight bacterial strains were isolated from affected banana leaves, and identified as an intraspecific taxon of Agrobacterium vitis based on their 16S rDNA seq...

    Microbial Cell Factories 14:92 (2015) PMID 26112883 PMCID PMC4482152

    Secretory expression of valuable proteins by B. subtilis and its related species has attracted intensive work over the past three decades. Although very high yields can be achieved with homologous proteins, production of heterologous proteins by B. subtilis is unfortunately not the straight forw...

    BacKGROUND: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is considered to be a cure for lymphoma. However, factors related to its prognosis remain unclear. Eighty patients diagnosed with lymphoma and treated with autologous HSCT (Auto HSCT) were recruited. The primary endpoints included overal...
