Exposure of Microcystis aeruginosa to hydrogen peroxide under light: kinetic modeling of cell rupture and simultaneous microcystin degradation
Tsair-Fuh Lin

Cyanobacteria (also called blue-green algae) is the most important source of cyanotoxins and taste and odor compounds in drinking water sources. Among the cyanobacteria, Microcystis genus is the most commonly observed harmful group in fresh water and has been found in many of Taiwan’s reservoirs (Photo 1). Understanding the removal and destruction of cyanobacteria cells and their harmful …

Formation of Oligonucleotide-Gated Silica Shell-Coated Fe3O4-Au Core−Shell Nanotrisoctahedra for Magnetically Targeted and Near-Infrared Light-Responsive Theranostic Platform
Chen-Sheng Yeh

This study is published in J. Am. Chem. Soc. (IF: 12.1). We successfully developed a new core-shell structure Fe3O4@Au multifunctional nanocomposites. Unlike previous Fe3O4@Au nanomaterials were often the spherical structures, this material was designed beginning from the truncated octahedral iron oxide nanoparticles as the core, followed by covering the highly active trisoctahedral gold shell on …

The phospholipid-binding protein SESTD1 negatively regulates dendritic spine density by interfering with Rac1-Trio8 signaling pathway
Kuei-Sen Hsu

Dendritic spines are actin-rich protrusions from neuronal dendrites that harbor the majority of excitatory synapses. The balance of spine formation and retraction may influence dendritic integrity. While knowledge of the molecular mechanisms that promote dendritic spine formation has accumulated, little is known about the factors that limit spine formation. We show here that SESTD1, …

Position Estimation and Smooth Tracking With a Fuzzy-Logic-Based Adaptive Strong Tracking Kalman Filter for Capacitive Touch Panels
Chih-Lung Lin

TOUCH panel technology, which is based on resistive, capacitive, acoustic-wave, and infrared methods, has been widely commercialized in mobile phones, digital cameras, navigation systems, TVs, and tablet PCs. The capacitive touch panel (CTP) has attracted significant interest and achieved considerable penetration of the consumer electronic product market in recent years owing to its sensitivity, …
