Krüppel-like factor 12 promotes colorectal cancer via early growth response protein 1

Posted · Add Comment

Investigators report preclinical research showing that Krüppel-like factor 12 promotes colorectal cancer cell growth by activating early growth response protein 1. Data also reveal that levels of KLF12 and EGR1 correlate synergistically with a poor CRC prognosis. Results indicate that KLF12 plays an important role in CRC progression and provides a potential novel prognostic marker […]

Scientists find a way of acquiring graphene-like films from salts to boost nanoelectronics

Posted · Add Comment

Scientists have found a way to acquire 2-D graphene-like layers of various salts. Because to the unique properties of two-dimensional materials, this opens up great prospects for nanoelectronics. Using computer modeling they have found the exact parameters, under which certain salts undergo graphitization — rearrangement of atoms in the slab with further decomposition of a […]
