Title: A small molecule Nec-1 directly induces amyloid clearance in the brains of aged APP/PS1 mice
Authors: Seung-Hoon Yang, Jisu Shin, Naewoo Neo Shin, Ji-Hyun Hwang, Sung-Chul Hong, Keunwan Park, Jae Wook Lee, Sejin Lee, Seungyeop Baek, Kyeonghwan Kim, Illhwan Cho & YoungSoo Kim
Name of Academic Journal: Scientific Reports
Publication Month/Year: April/2019
Volume/Issue Number & Page Numbers: 9, 4183
Key words: Alzheimer, amyloid, dementia, drug discovery, tau
Highlights: A small molecule, necrostatin-1 (Nec-1), reduces Aβ aggregates back to non-toxic monomers in vitro and in vivo. Intravenous administration of Nec-1 reduced the levels of Aβ plaques in the brains of aged APP/PS1 double transgenic mice. In addition, Nec-1 exhibited therapeutic effects against Aβ aggregates by inhibiting Aβ-induced brain cell death in neuronal and microglial cell lines.

Title: Comparative analyses of plasma amyloid-β levels in heterogeneous and monomerized states by interdigitated microelectrode sensor system
Authors: YoungSoo Kim, Yong Kyoung Yoo, Hye Yun Kim, Jee Hoon Roh, Jinsik Kim, Seungyeop Baek, Jinny Claire Lee, Hye Jin Kim, Myung-Sic Chae,
Dahye Jeong, Dongsung Park, Sejin Lee, HoChung Jang, Kyeonghwan Kim, Jeong Hoon Lee, Byung Hyun Byun, Su Yeon Park, Jeong Ho Ha, Kyo Chul Lee, Won Woo Cho, Jae-Seung Kim, Jae-Young Koh, Sang Moo Lim, Kyo Seon Hwang
Name of Academic Journal: Science Advances
Publication Month/Year: April/2019
Volume/Issue Number & Page Numbers: 5, eaav1388
Key words: Alzheimer, dementia, amyloid, blood test, diagnosis
Highlights: We introduce a diagnostic technique that compares the heterogeneous and the monomerized states of Aβ in plasma. We used a small molecule, EPPS [4-(2-hydroxyethyl)-1-piperazinepropanesulfonic acid], to dissociate aggregated Aβ into monomers to enhance quantification accuracy. Subsequently, Aβ levels of EPPS-treated plasma were compared to those of untreated samples to minimize inter- and intraindividual variations. The implementation of this self-standard blood test resulted in substantial distinctions between patients with AD and individuals with normal cognition (NC), with selectivity and sensitivity over 90%.

Title: Fluorescent 1,4-Naphthoquinones to visualize diffuse and dense-core amyloid plaques in APP/PS1 transgenic mouse brains
Authors: Naewoo Neo Shin, Hanna Jeon, Youngeun Jung, Seungyeop Baek, Sejin Lee, Hee Chan Yoo, Gi Hun Bae, Keunwan Park, Seung-Hoon Yang, Jung Min Han, Ikyon Kim,
and YoungSoo Kim
Name of Academic Journal: ACS Chemical Neuroscience
Publication Month/Year: April/2019
Volume/Issue Number & Page Numbers: 10, 6, 3031
Key words: Alzheimer, dementia, amyloid, imaging, diagnosis
Highlights: We synthesized 41 novel 1,4-naphthoquinone derivatives and initially discovered 14 antiamyloidogenic compounds via in vitro amyloid-β aggregation assay; however, qualitative analyses of these compounds produced conflicting results and required further investigation. Follow-up docking and biophysical studies revealed that four of these compounds penetrate the blood-brain barrier, directly bind to amyloid-β aggregates, and enhance fluorescence properties upon interaction. Our findings suggest 1,4-naphthoquinones as a new scaffold for amyloid-β imaging agents for early stage Alzheimer’s. UIC alumni Naewoo Shin (BC '14) started this project in his senior year and he is the first author of this article.

Title: Fluorescence chemicals to detect insoluble and soluble amyloid-β aggregates
Authors: Donghee Lee, Sung Min Kim, Hye Yun Kim, and YoungSoo Kim
Name of Academic Journal: ACS Chemical Neuroscience
Publication Month/Year: April/2019
Volume/Issue Number & Page Numbers: 10, 6, 2647
Key words: Alzheimer, amyloid, dementia, imaging, fluorescence
Highlights: There is a significant structural distinction between two Aβ species—plaques are β-sheet-rich while oligomers are unordered—and it is still difficult to isolate and stabilize the oligomeric forms of Aβ. Due to these challenges, soluble oligomer-detecting imaging probes are relatively rare compared to the plaque-targeting chemical probes. This Review describes biochemical and optical characteristics of up-to-date fluorescence chemicals targeting insoluble plaques and soluble oligomers of Aβ. We also highlight the contributions of Aβ fluorescence chemicals to the clinical diagnosis of AD and technical challenges in searching for enhanced imaging probes.

Title: Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease utilizing amyloid and tau as fluid biomarkers
Authors: Jinny Claire Lee, Soo Jung Kim, Seungpyo Hong, and YoungSoo Kim
Name of Academic Journal: Experimental & Molecular Medicine
Publication Month/Year: May.2019
Volume/Issue Number & Page Numbers: 51, 53
Key words: Alzheimer, amyloid, tau, diagnosis, biofluid
Highlights: In this review, we consider the capabilities and limitations of fluid biomarkers collected from cerebrospinal fluid, blood, and oral, ocular, and olfactory secretions as diagnostic tools for AD, along with the impact of the integration of these biomarkers in clinical settings. Furthermore, the evolution of diagnostic criteria and novel research findings are discussed. This review is a summary and reflection of the ongoing concerted efforts to establish fluid biomarkers as a diagnostic tool and implement them in diagnostic procedures. UIC alumni Jinny Lee (BC '14) is the first author of this article.

Title: Removal of Heavy Metal Ions from Wastewater by Polyacrylonitrile based Fibers: A Review
Authors: Hyunyoung Oh, Jae Hun Lee, Rajkumar Patel*
Name of Academic Journal: Membrane Journal
Publication Month/Year: June/2019
Volume/Issue Number & Page Numbers: 30 (3), 123-129
Key words: wastewater, PAN, metal ions
Highlights: Environmental pollution caused by the presence of heavy metal ion from growing industrialization or from leaching is increasing area of concern. There are several area of water purifications but among them adsorption on the functionalized polymer fibers is efficient and cost-effective method. Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) is exciting polymer due to the presence of excessive functional group which can be easily transformed for metal ion adsorption.

Title: Queer Communities and Activism in South Korea: Periphery-Center Currents
Authors: Joe Phillips & Josph Yi
Name of Academic Journal: Journal of Homosexuality
Publication Month/Year: May/2019
Volume/Issue Number & Page Numbers: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/00918369.2019.1616432 (not yet assigned volume)
Key words: LGBTQI, South Korea, gay, lesbian, Christian, same-sex marriage, activism
Highlights: Research into South Korea’s LGBT+ communities is growing but still very limited, especially regarding communities in Busan and other urban areas outside the capital city, Seoul. We collected and analyzed responses from young LGBT+ who resided in the periphery and center and who described the two communities, their activist tactics, the connections/separations between them, and periphery-center characteristics of dialogue with opponents and participation in Korea’s conservative, evangelical Christian churches.
