    Description: Neuroinflammation-associated release of glutamate from activated microglia has been implicated in the progression of neurodegenerative diseases. However, the regulatory mechanisms underlying this glutamate release are poorly understood. Here, we show that peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta (PPARδ) modulates neurotoxicity by inhibiting glutamate release in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated BV-2 microglial cells. Activation of PPARδ by GW501516, a specific PPARδ agonist, inhibited glutamate release in BV-2 cells. This effect of GW501516 was significantly blocked by shRNA-mediated knockdown of PPARδ and by treatment with GSK0660, a specific PPARδ antagonist, indicating that PPARδ is associated with blockade of glutamate release. Additionally, GW501516-activated PPARδ suppressed generation of reactive oxygen species and expression of gp91phox, a functional subunit of NADPH oxidase 2, in BV-2 cells stimulated with LPS. The inhibitory effect of GW501516 on gp91phox expression and glutamate release was further potentiated in the presence of AG490, a specific inhibitor of janus kinase 2 (JAK2), leading to the inhibition of signal transducer and activator of transcription 1 (STAT1). By contrast, GW501516 upregulated the expression of suppressor of cytokine signaling 1 (SOCS1), an endogenous inhibitor of JAK2. Furthermore, neurotoxicity induced by conditioned media from LPS-stimulated BV-2 cells was significantly reduced when conditioned media from BV-2 cells treated with both LPS and GW501516 were used. These results indicate that PPARδ attenuates LPS-triggered neuroinflammation by enhancing SOCS1-mediated inhibition of JAK2/STAT1 signaling, thereby inhibiting neurotoxicity associated with glutamate release.

    Notes: A temperature-programmed microcolumn liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) system has been developed as a practical alternative to conventional solvent-programmed LC/MS. Good reproducibility of solute retention was achieved in a specially modified oven that permitted linear temperature programming between 40 and 100°C at rates of 0.1 to 0.5°C min-1. Through theoretical modelling studies performed under isocratic and isothermal conditions, the optimum separation under temperature-programmed conditions was rapidly and accurately predicted. This method enabled the complete resolution of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids in a fish oil dietary supplement with identification from their characteristic fragmentation patterns under electron-impact MS conditions. The mass spectra from the LC/MS system correlated very well with those from a standard reference library to facilitate spectral searching methods.

    Notes: Large crystals of arylesterase from Pseudomonas fluorescens have been grown at room temperature using ammonium sulfate as a precipitant. They grow to dimensions of 0.7 × 0.7 × 0.6 mm3 within a month. The crystals belong to the trigonal space group P31 (or P32), with unit cell dimensions of a= 147.12 Å and c= 131.08 Å. The asymmetric unit seems to contain six molecules of dimeric aryles-terase, with corresponding crystal volume per protein mass (VM) of 2.53 Å3/Da and solvent fraction of 51.5% by volume. The crystals diffract to at least 2.2 Å Bragg spacing when exposed to X-rays from a rotating-anode source. X-ray data have been collected to 2.9 Å Bragg spacing from native crystals. © 1993 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

    Notes: The DAL3 gene has been sequenced and found to encode a 195 amino acid protein with a molecular weight of 21 727. The four carboxy-terminal amino acids of DAL3 product (Cys-Ile-Ile-Ile) are homologous to those (CAAX) previously shown to be the primary structural signal for post-translational farnesylation of yeast RAS protein and mating factor. This modification is reported to be responsible for membrane localization of proteins containing it. The upstream region of DAL3 contains six copies of a sequence that is homologous to the positively acting DAL UASNTR reported to be required for transcriptional activation of the DAL5 and DAL7 genes. Missing from the DAL3 upstream region were any sequences related to those shown to be required for a DAL7 response to inducer, the UIS element. This correlates with the previous report that DAL3 expression is independent of the allantoin pathway inducer.

    Notes: A vacuum ultraviolet photolysis of C2H5Br at 147 nm was studied over a pressure range of 0.5-50 torr at 298 K. The effects of additives He and NO were also investigated.The principal reaction products were found to be C2H4 and C2H6, with lesser yields of CH4 and C2H2. With increasing pressure the product quantum yields Φi of C2H4, CH4, and CH2H6 remained constant, while that of C2H2 decreased from 0.03 to almost 0. The effect of He as an additive was found to be extremely small on the quantum yields of the major products. Addition of NO completely suppresses the formation of CH4, C2H2, and C2H6, and reduces partially the production of C2H4. The primary processes appear to involve two electronically excited states. One state mainly yields C2H4 by molecular elimination of HBr and is thought to be due to a Rydberg transition. The other state decomposes to C2H5 and Br radicals by C—Br bond fission. These two competitive reaction modes contribute to the photodecomposition in proportions of 50% and 50%. The extinction coefficient for C2H5Br at 147 nm and at 298 K has been determined as ∊ = (1/PL) In(Io/It) = 712 ± 7 atm-1 · cm-1.

    Notes: Thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers (TPUs) from diol-terminated poly(ethylene adipate) (PEA), 1,4-butanediol (BD) and 4,4′-diphenylmethane-diisocyanate (MDI) were modified by copolymerizing with diamine-terminated nylon-6/6,6 copolyamide (CPA) oligomers. The effects of content and molecular weight of CPA segments on the thermal and mechanical properties of TPU were studied. PEA segments showed enhanced crystallization when some of the hard segments were replaced by CPA segments, showing weaker CPA-PEA interaction. The crystallinity of the hard segments was reduced, probably due to some interaction and phase mixing between hard and CPA segments. The modulus of TPU also decreased, more markedly with CPA segments of higher molecular weight.

    Notes: Small-angle neutron scattering studies have been used to clarify several aspects of the internal structure of latexes and subsequent film formation modes. This paper reviews work both around the world and at Lehigh University on those subjects. Two points have been made clear: (1) The appearance of core-shell phenomena in latexes depends on the size of the polymer chain to that of the latex particle; the phenomenon is most marked when the radius of gyration of the chain is about one fifth as big as the latex radius. (2) Strength build-up during film formation depends on the extent of interdiffusion of the chains. For moderate molecular weights, interdiffusion distances of one radius of gyration yield maximum strength. For both moderate (250,000 g/mol) and high (2,000,000 g/mol) molecular weights, full strength was achieved in two hour's annealing time at 144°C.

    Notes: An experimental study has been carried out to investigate the effects of spinning conditions on the shape of fibers spun through noncircular spinnerette holes, namely, rectangular holes, trilobal holes, and round holes with lugs. For the study, bench-scale apparatuses of wet spinning and melt spinning were used which had been constructed in connection with an earlier study by Han. In the wet-spinning experiment, the spin dope used was an aqueous solution of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) consisting of approximately 10% polymer and 40% sodium thiocyanate (NaSCN), and the spin dope was spun into aqueous solutions of NaSCN. In the melt-spinning experiment, polystyrene was used. The variables investigated were: size and shape of the spinnerette hole, coagulating bath concentration, throughput rate, and jet stretch. It has been found in wet spinning that, for a given shape of spinnerette hole, the fiber shape is most strongly affected by jet stretch and relatively little by the bath concentration and throughput rate. Also determined in the wet-spinning experiment was the maximum jet stretch at which thread breakage occurs. It has been found that the maximum jet stretch decreases as bath concentration is increased.
