Synergistic effect of oxygen and nitrogen functionalities for graphene-based quantum dots used in photocatalytic H2 production from water decomposition
Hsisheng Teng

Most photocatalysts for H2 generation from water are metal oxide or nitride semiconductors. This paper reports outstanding photocatalytic water-splitting performance of surface-intact nitrogen-doped graphene oxide quantum dots (iNGO-QDs), which are based on the abundant elements C, H, O, and N, and represents a substantial advance in this field, based on the following results: …

Equity Financing and Social Responsibility: Further International Evidence
Hua-Wei Huang

This paper investigates how corporate social responsibility (CSR) influences the cost of equity capital from a global perspective. With a full sample of 10,803 firm-year observations from 25 countries, the study finds that, in general, firms with better CSR scores are significantly associated with a reduced cost of equity capital in North America and Europe. In contrast, the results do not …

Integrating image-based high-content screening with mouse models identifies 5-hydroxydecanoate as a Neuroprotective drug for paclitaxel-induced neuropathy
Meng-Ru Shen

Neurotoxicity is a common complication in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Effective neuroprotective drugs against chemotherapy are not available so far. Current strategies for evaluating chemical-induced neurotoxicity include in vitro examination of morphologic and functional changes in neurons, and in vivo assessment of neuropathologic and behavioral endpoints in rodent species. …

Identifying cooperative transcription factors in yeast using multiple data sources
Wei-Sheng Wu

Transcriptional regulation of gene expression is usually accomplished by multiple cooperative transcription factors (TFs). Therefore, it is important to understand the precise cooperativity among TFs. Various kinds of experimental data have been used to identify cooperative TF pairs in existing methods. The nucleosome occupancy data is not yet used for this research topic despite that several …
