Spectroscopic Studies of Fluorescence Effects in Bioactive 4-(5-Heptyl-1,3,4-Thiadiazol-2-yl)Benzene-1,3-Diol and 4-(5-Methyl-1,3,4-Thiadiazol-2-yl)Benzene-1,3-Diol Molecules Induced by pH Changes in Aqueous Solutions

This paper presents the results of stationary fluorescence spectroscopy and time-resolved spectroscopy analyses of two 1,3,4-thiadiazole analogues, i.e. 4-(5-methyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)benzene-1,3-diol (C1) and 4-(5-heptyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)benzene-1,3-diol (C7) in an aqueous medium containing different concentrations of hydrogen ions. An interesting dual florescence effect was observed when both compounds were dissolved in aqueous solutions at pH below 7 for C1 and 7.5 for C7. In turn, for C1 and C7 dissolved in water at pH higher than the physiological value (mentioned above), single fluorescence was only noted. Based on previous results of investigations of the selected 1,3,4-thiadiazole compounds, it was noted that the presented effects were associated with both conformational changes in the analysed molecules and charge transfer (CT) effects, which were influenced by the aggregation factor. However, in the case of C1 and C7, the dual fluorescence effects were visible in a higher energetic region (different than that observed in the 1,3,4-thiadiazoles studied previously). Measurements of the fluorescence lifetimes in a medium characterised by different concentrations of hydrogen ions revealed clear lengthening of the ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
