Badly approximable points on self-affine sponges and the lower Assouad dimension (open access)

Badly approximable points on self-affine sponges and the lower Assouad dimension

This article highlights a connection between Diophantine approximation and the lower Assouad dimension by using information about the latter to show that the Hausdorff dimension of the set of badly approximable points that lie in certain non-conformal fractals, known as self-affine sponges, is bounded below by the dynamical dimension of these fractals. The results, which are the first to advance beyond the conformal setting, encompass both the case of Sierpiński sponges/carpets (also known as Bedford–McMullen sponges/carpets) and the case of Barański carpets.

Artificially structured boundary plasma trap

This article presents a computer simulation of single-species non-neutral plasma confinement using an artificially structured boundary. The results support the prospect of developing plasma space-charge based confinement, with an unmagnetized plasma of one species of charged particles confined by an electric field produced by an edge-confined plasma of a second species of charged particles.

Detection of Pancreatic Cancer miRNA with Biocompatible Nitrogen-Doped Graphene Quantum Dots (open access)

Detection of Pancreatic Cancer miRNA with Biocompatible Nitrogen-Doped Graphene Quantum Dots

Article detects the presence of a specific pancreatic cancer-derived miRNA (pre-miR-132) using the fluorescence properties of biocompatible nitrogen-doped graphene quantum dots (NGQDs) synthesized using a bottom-up approach from a single glucosamine precursor. This non-invasive approach allows cancer-specific miRNA detection to facilitate early diagnosis of various forms of cancer.

Regulating C2H2/CO2 adsorption selectivity by electronic-state manipulation of iron in metal-organic frameworks (open access)

Regulating C2H2/CO2 adsorption selectivity by electronic-state manipulation of iron in metal-organic frameworks

Article reports a metal electronic-state manipulation strategy to construct a pair of isostructural and interconvertible Fe-MOFs featuring open Fe centers with different electron densities for efficient C₂H₂/CO₂ separation. The authors show that the presence of Fe[II] centers with a medium-spin-state trail plays a crucial role in the enhanced C₂H₂ selective adsorption.

Drug Solubility Correlation Using the Jouyban–Acree Model: Effects of Concentration Units and Error Criteria (open access)

Drug Solubility Correlation Using the Jouyban–Acree Model: Effects of Concentration Units and Error Criteria

Article investigates the unit and error scale expression effects on the accuracy of the Jouyban–Acree model, in the current study, seventy-nine solubility data sets were collected randomly from the published articles and solute and solvent concentrations in the investigated systems were expressed in various units. Mass fraction, mole fraction, and volume fraction were the employed concentration units for the solvent compositions, and mole fraction, molar, and gram/liter were the investigated concentration units for the solutes. The solubility data, with various solute/solvent concentration units, were correlated using the Jouyban–Acree model, and the accuracy of each model for correlating the data was investigated by calculating different error scales and discussed.

SEIPIN Isoforms Interact with the Membrane-Tethering Protein VAP27-1 for Lipid Droplet Formation (open access)

SEIPIN Isoforms Interact with the Membrane-Tethering Protein VAP27-1 for Lipid Droplet Formation

Article demonstrating that part of the function of two SEIPIN isoforms in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana), AtSEIPIN2 and AtSEIPIN3, may depend on their interaction with the vesicle-associated membrane protein (VAMP)–associated protein (VAP) family member AtVAP27-1. The authors used a combination of biochemical, cell biology, and genetics approaches to show that AtVAP27-1 interacts with the N termini of AtSEIPIN2 and AtSEIPIN3 and likely supports the normal formation of LDs. This insight indicates that the ER membrane tethering machinery in plant cells could play a role with select SEIPIN isoforms in LD biogenesis at the ER, and additional experimental evidence in Saccharomyces cerevisiae supports the possibility that this interaction may be important in other eukaryotic systems.

Parental transgenerational epigenetic inheritance related to dietary crude oil exposure in Danio rerio

Article investigating the transgenerational inheritance from both parental lines in zebrafish. Adult zebrafish were separated into female and male groups exposed for 21 days to either a control diet or to a diet containing water accommodated fractions of crude oil.
