Small Molecule Inhibitor of Forkhead Box Protein C2 (FOXC2): Therapeutic Candidate and Diagnostic Tool for Metastatic Cancers
The transcription factor Forkhead Box Protein C2 (FOXC2) is known to be necessary to initiate and maintain the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), which has been a hot target for therapeutic intervention against cancers. The overexpression of FOXC2 bestows cancer cells with metastatic and cancer stem cell (CSC)‐like phenotypes, i.e., higher motility,...

Intelligent Textiles Prepared from Nanofiber Yarns and Polymer Fiber Actuators
While there has always been a desire for smart textiles, including fabrics which adapt depending on environmental stimuli, it has yet to be effectively accomplished due to the lack of suitable materials. These polymer fiber actuators have enabled the creation of fabrics that can reversibly change properties such as porosity, shape, color and texture....

Novel Solution for Selective Adsorption and Release of Gases Within Porous Materials
The potential for nanoporous materials, such as metal organic frameworks (MOFs), to be used effectively for energy storage and gas capture has been hindered by their relatively weak adsorption of gases. The primary approach for weak adsorption has been to develop metal centers that are more active. Such an approach often leads to complex synthesis procedures...
