Development of Neutral Red as a pH/pCO2 Luminescent Sensor for Biological Systems

Description: This article demonstrates for the first time that Neutral Red (NR) can also serve as a CO2 sensor, because of NR’s unique optical properties, which change with dissolved carbon dioxide (dCO2) concentrations. In this article optical sensitivity of NR was quantified as a function of changes in absorption and emission spectra to dCO2 in a pH 7.3 buffer medium at eight dCO2 concentrations.

Disentangling Orbital and Valley Hall Effects in Bilayers of Transition Metal Dichalcogenides

Description: This article shows that a bilayer of 2H-MoS₂ is an orbital Hall insulator that exhibits a sizeable orbital Hall effect in the absence of both spin and valley Hall effects. The results are based on density functional theory and low-energy effective model calculations and strongly suggest that bilayers of TMDs are highly suitable platforms for direct observation of the orbital Hall insulating phase in two-dimensional materials.

The mitochondrial localized CISD-3.1/CISD-3.2 proteins are required to maintain normal germline structure and function in Caenorhabditis elegans

Description: Article isolating the cisd-3.2(pnIs68) mutant that resulted in physiological and fitness defects including germline abnormalities that are associated with abnormal stem cell niche and disrupted formation of bivalent chromosomes. Results further support the idea that the CISD protein family is required for mitochondrial function that supports important functions in animals including overall fitness and germline viability.
