α-Amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid (AMPA)-type glutamate receptors produce postsynaptic current by transmitting an agonist-induced structural change in the ligand-binding domain (LBD) to the transmembrane channel. Receptors carrying T686S/A substitutions in their LBDs produce weaker glutamate-evoked currents than wild-type (WT) receptors.
Oxidative stress is known to play a critical role in the pathogenesis of various disorders, especially in ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. We identified an apoptosis-inducing humoral factor and named this novel post translationally modified secreted form of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 5A (eIF5A) “oxidative stress-responsive apoptosis inducing protein” (ORAIP). The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of ORAIP in the mechanisms of cerebral I/R injury.
Herein, we present the synthesis of mono-dispersed C-QDs via single-step thermal decomposition process using the fennel seeds (Foeniculum vulgare). As synthesized C-QDs have excellent colloidal, photo-stability, environmental stability (pH) and do not require any additional surface passivation step to improve the fluorescence. The C-QDs show excellent PL activity and excitation-independent emission. Synthesis of excitation-independent C-QDs, to the best of our knowledge, using natural carbon source via pyrolysis process has never been achieved before.
