Can a simple topological-constraints-based model predict the initial dissolution rate of borosilicate and aluminosilicate glasses? (open access)

Can a simple topological-constraints-based model predict the initial dissolution rate of borosilicate and aluminosilicate glasses?

This article, as an alternative route to empirical models, shows that a structural descriptor based on the number of topological constraints per atom can be used to predict the initial dissolution rate of aluminosilicate and borosilicate glasses after being parameterized on different families of glasses (specific series of borosilicate glasses). Results show that, provided that corrections are made for high alkali content glasses that dissolve incongruently (preferential release of Na), the model gives reasonable predictions, even far from its training domain.

Hedgehog signaling is involved in acquired resistance to KRASG12C inhibitors in lung cancer cells (open access)

Hedgehog signaling is involved in acquired resistance to KRASG12C inhibitors in lung cancer cells

Article states that although KRASG12C inhibitors have shown promising activity in lung adenocarcinomas harboring KRASG12C, acquired resistance to these therapies eventually occurs in most patients. The authors report that the hedgehog signal is induced by KRASG12C inhibitors and mediates KRAS re-expression in cancer cells treated with a KRASG12C inhibitor.
