Sputtered highly ordered TiO2 nanorod arrays and their applications as the electrode in dye-sensitized solar cells.
J Nanosci Nanotechnol
PUBLISHED: 04-02-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
For the first time, the TiO2 nanorod arrays have been prepared on ITO substrates at room temperature by dc reactive magnetron sputtering technique. These TiO2 nanorods have a preferred orientation along the (220) direction and are perpendicular to the ITO substrate. Both the X-ray diffraction and Raman scattering measurements show that the highly ordered TiO2 nanorod arrays have an anatase crystal structure. The diameter of the nanorod varies from 30 nm to 100 nm and the nanorod length can be varied from several hundred nanometers to several micrometers depending on the deposition time. The TiO2 nanorod arrays with about 3 micrometers length have been used as an electrode for dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC). Short-circuit photocurrent density, open-circuit voltage, fill factor and light-to-electricity conversion efficiency at 100 mW/cm2 light intensity are estimated to be 12.76 mA/cm2, 0.65 V, 0.63 and 5.25%, respectively, for the DSSC made of the TiO2 nanorods.

FBI-1 functions as a novel AR co-repressor in prostate cancer cells.
Cell. Mol. Life Sci.
PUBLISHED: 03-13-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The pro-oncogene FBI-1, encoded by Zbtb7a, is a transcriptional repressor that belongs to the POK (POZ/BTB and Kr├╝ppel) protein family. In this study, we investigated a potential interaction between androgen receptor (AR) signaling and FBI-1 and demonstrated that overexpression of FBI-1 inhibited ligand-dependent AR activation. A protein-protein interaction was identified between FBI-1 and AR in a ligand-dependent manner. Furthermore, FBI-1, AR and SMRT formed a ternary complex and FBI-1 enhanced the recruitment of NCoR and SMRT to endogenous PSA upstream sequences. Our data also indicated that the FBI-1-mediated inhibition of AR transcriptional activity is partially dependent on HDAC. Interestingly, FBI-1 plays distinct roles in regulating LNCaP (androgen-dependent) and PC-3 cell (androgen-independent) proliferation.

Relationship between primary tumor fluorodeoxyglucose uptake and nodal or distant metastases at presentation in T1 stage non-small cell lung cancer.
Lung Cancer
PUBLISHED: 04-09-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Many studies have shown that FDG uptake is related to prognosis of non-small cell lung cancer, and metastasis is the major cause of death due to lung cancer patients. However, the FDG uptake of primary tumor in relation to nodal or distant metastasis at presentation has not been studied directly. Newly diagnosed non-small cell lung cancer patients who accepted (18)F-FDG PET/CT staging in the nuclear medicine center of Shandong Cancer Hospital between 1 June 2004 and 1 October 2007 were retrospectively reviewed. One hundred and seven patients with clinical T1 stage and definited histologic or cytologic evidence were enrolled and analyzed. Significant differences were observed in primary tumor SUVmax for different stages (Stage Ia-IV, P=0.004), different N status (N(0)M(0) vs. N(1-3)M(0), P=0.008) and tumors absence any spread vs. presence distant metastasis (N(0)M(0) vs. M(1), P=0.000). Spearman rank analysis showed moderate correlations between SUVmax and different N or M status (r=0.369, P=0.000 for Stage Ia-IV; r=0.337, P=0.004 for N(0)M(0) vs. N(1-3)M(0); r=0.474, P=0.000 for N(0)M(0) vs. M(1); respectively). There was a statistically significant increase in the probability of metastases at presentation with each unit increase in SUVmax. (logistic regression model, OR=1.469; 95% CI, 1.175-1.836; P=0.001). These results suggest that FDG uptake is a potential indicator of metastases in small primary lesion of non-small cell lung cancer.

An Updating System for the Gridded Population Database of China Based on Remote Sensing, GIS and Spatial Database Technologies.
Sensors (Basel)
PUBLISHED: 02-13-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The spatial distribution of population is closely related to land use and land cover (LULC) patterns on both regional and global scales. Population can be redistributed onto geo-referenced square grids according to this relation. In the past decades, various approaches to monitoring LULC using remote sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have been developed, which makes it possible for efficient updating of geo-referenced population data. A Spatial Population Updating System (SPUS) is developed for updating the gridded population database of China based on remote sensing, GIS and spatial database technologies, with a spatial resolution of 1 km by 1 km. The SPUS can process standard Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS L1B) data integrated with a Pattern Decomposition Method (PDM) and an LULC-Conversion Model to obtain patterns of land use and land cover, and provide input parameters for a Population Spatialization Model (PSM). The PSM embedded in SPUS is used for generating 1 km by 1 km gridded population data in each population distribution region based on natural and socio-economic variables. Validation results from finer township-level census data of Yishui County suggest that the gridded population database produced by the SPUS is reliable.

From molecular fragments to crystals: a UV Raman spectroscopic study on the mechanism of Fe-ZSM-5 synthesis.
Chemistry
PUBLISHED: 02-07-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The nucleation process of iron-exchanged zeolite Fe-ZSM-5, from the assembly of distorted tetrahedrally coordinated iron species and silicate rings in the precursor to the final Fe-ZSM-5 crystals, as well as variations in the coordination environment of iron, were studied by UV resonance Raman spectroscopy and complementary techniques.The entire sequence of crystallization events of Fe-ZSM-5 was monitored by UV Raman spectroscopy in combination with HRTEM, UV/Vis spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction patterns, and periodic DFT calculations. Fe-ZSM-5 was synthesized by an organic-free method to avoid signal interference from the organic template in Raman spectra. Framework iron atoms with resonance Raman bands at 516, 1115, and 1165 cm(-1), and a Raman band at 1016 cm(-1) are detected for Fe-ZSM-5. In the early stage of Fe-ZSM-5 synthesis, the precursor contains iron atoms in distorted tetrahedral coordination and five- and six-membered silicate rings. Nucleation by aggregation of the precursor species was monitored by UV Raman spectroscopy based on the resonance Raman effect, and confirmed by periodic DFT calculations. Evolution of iron species on the surface and in the bulk phase was monitored by UV Raman spectroscopy with excitation at 244 and 325 nm, as well as HRTEM. Nucleation takes place first in the core of the amorphous particles, and crystalline nuclei with Fe-ZSM-5 structure are formed in the core by consuming the amorphous shell. Finally the amorphous particles are completely transformed into Fe-ZSM-5 crystals.

Two types of nanoparticle-based bio-barcode amplification assays to detect HIV-1 p24 antigen.
Virol. J.
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
HIV-1 p24 antigen is a major viral component of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) which can be used to identify persons in the early stage of infection and transmission of HIV-1 from infected mothers to infants. The detection of p24 is usually accomplished by using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) with low detection sensitivity. Here we report the use of two bio-barcode amplification (BCA) assays combined with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and gel electrophoresis to quantify HIV-1 p24 antigen.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
