In a recent publication in the journal Nature Communications, they reported that phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) not only acts as an accelerator to prompt cell motility, but it also has a built-in brake mechanism that impedes migration. Figure: Traditionally viewed as a catalyst for cell migration, PI3K reveals a hidden regulatory mechanism. Here, authors uncover the PI3K&#39;s interaction with AP2 induces endocytosis, braking cell migration independently of its catalytic function. “PI3K is a major signaling enzyme that has been extensively studied for over 30 years due to its roles in fundamental cellular functions like growth, survival, movement and metabolism,” points out Hideaki Matsubayashi, lead author of the study and assistant professor at Tohoku University&#39;s Frontier Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Sciences (FRIS). “It plays a critical part in cell migration and invasion, something that when dysregulated, can cause many pathologies. Our work revealed that PI3K can also actively restrain these same migratory processes through a separate non-catalytic endocytic mechanism originating from its p85β subunit.”   Using a combination of bioinformatics, molecular modeling, biochemical binding assays and live-cell imaging, Matsubayashi and his colleagues demonstrated that a disordered region within p85β&#39;s inter-SH2 domain directly binds to the endocytic protein AP2. This part of PI3K can activate a cellular process that pulls certain molecules into the cell, and it does so without needing the enzyme&#39;s typical lipid-modification function .   When the researchers disrupted the binding  , the mutated p85β did not function as it should. Instead of regulating cell movement through its brake mechanism, it built up in specific sites within the cell. This leads to cells moving faster and more persistently, indicating a loss of the brake mechanism&#39;s control over cell migration.   “Remarkably, this single PI3K enzyme has opposing accelerator and brake pedals built into its molecular framework," added Matsubayashi. “The endocytic mechanism helps regulate PI3K&#39;s activity to ensure that cell movement is controlled at the right times and in the right places for important biological processes.”   This braking role was found to be specific to just the p85β subunit. And since the p85β subunit of PI3K is linked to cancer-promoting properties, deeper understanding of PI3K regulation and its isoform specificity could lead to novel therapeutic strategies, such that selectively inhibit the cancerous aspect of PI3K, while preserving the normal functions of PI3K in healthy cells.

This innovative material, leveraging an enhanced rock-salt structure, promises to usher in a new era of energy storage solutions that are more affordable, safer, and higher in capacity.   Details of the findings were published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A on March 15, 2024.   Figure: Schematics of the battery and present cathode material. The present material contains many metal elements as cations thanks to the effect of the high configurational entropy. (Credit: Tohoku University) The study showcases a considerable improvement in magnesium (Mg) diffusion within a rock-salt structure, a critical advancement since the denseness of atoms in this configuration had previously impeded Mg migration. By introducing a strategic mixture of seven different metallic elements, the research team created a crystal structure abundant in stable cation vacancies, facilitating easier Mg insertion and extraction.   This represents the first utilization of rocksalt oxide as a cathode material for RMBs. The high-entropy strategy employed by the researchers allowed the cation defects to activate the rocksalt oxide cathode.   The development also addresses a key limitation of RMBs - the difficulty of Mg transport within solid materials. Until now, high temperatures were necessary to enhance Mg mobility in conventional cathode materials, such as those with a spinel structure. However, the material unveiled by Tohoku University researchers operates efficiently at just 90°C, demonstrating a significant reduction in the required operating temperature.   Tomoya Kawaguchi, a professor at Tohoku University&#39;s Institute for Materials Research (IMR), notes the broader implications of the study. "Lithium is scarce and unevenly distributed, whereas magnesium is abundantly available, offering a more sustainable and cost-effective alternative for lithium-ion batteries. Magnesium batteries, featuring the newly developed cathode material, are poised to play a pivotal role in various applications, including grid storage, electric vehicles, and portable electronic devices, contributing to the global shift towards renewable energy and reduced carbon footprints."   Kawaguchi collaborated with Tetsu Ichitsubo, also a professor at IMR, who states, "By harnessing the intrinsic benefits of magnesium and overcoming previous material limitations, this research paves the way for the next generation of batteries, promising significant impacts on technology, the environment, and society."   Ultimately, the breakthrough is a major step forward in the quest for efficient, eco-friendly energy storage solutions.

Since then, the Institute has been active with the missions of promoting advanced interdisciplinary research, fostering early-career researchers through the "FRIS Shoshi Program," and discovering interdisciplinary research within the University, and is now celebrating its 10th anniversary. To commemorate this anniversary, the 10th Anniversary Ceremony and Lectures of FRIS were held on Monday, February 19, 2024, at Katahira Sakura Hall, Tohoku University. The event was attended by approximately 120 people, including those who have supported the Institute in various ways, as well as current and former faculty members.   At the beginning of the ceremony, Tohoku University President Hideo Ohno opened the event with remarks on the role of FRIS at Tohoku University. He expressed his gratitude for the generous support from all quarters and stated, "The Institute has nurtured many researchers and serves as the foundation of our efforts to promote early-career researchers at Tohoku University. After a congratulatory address by Mr. Yasuyoshi Kakita, Director General of the Science and Technology Policy Bureau of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Prof. Toshiyuki Hayase, Director of FRIS, gave an overview of the history and prospects of the Institute.   In the commemorative lecture, Dr. Hiroto Yasuura, Deputy Director General of the National Institute of Informatics, gave a presentation titled "Support for Early-Career Researchers and Transformation of Academic Information Infrastructure," in which he introduced Japan&#39;s efforts to foster early-career researchers. He concluded his lecture with the expectation that Tohoku University and FRIS will continue to be cutting-edge organizations in academia, even with new trends in data-driven research and open science.   In addition, Prof. Hiroshi Masumoto and Prof. Kenji Toma of FRIS gave talks on "Advanced Interdisciplinary Research at FRIS and the Future of Nanocomplex Materials" and "Interdisciplinary Exchange, Astrophysics Research, and their Future" respectively, and Assoc. Prof. Yui Arimatsu of Hiroshima University, a former FRIS faculty member, gave a talk on "Humanities at FRIS: What I Think as a FRIS&#39;s Alumnus and the Future of Western Asian Archaeology". They talked about the unique activities, roles, and various memories of FRIS from the viewpoints of both current and former Institute members.   It was noteworthy that about 30 researchers, who had previously been part of FRIS and are now active both inside and outside of the University, gathered at the event. The fact that these former members are now active in their respective fields truly testifies to the role and impact that FRIS has had in the past. Following the commemorative lecture, a poster session was held, featuring more than 60 presentations by both current and former members of FRIS. Afterward, a lively social gathering was held, during which attendees reflected on the history of the Institute and discussed their hopes for the future, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the establishment of FRIS.

Topics 2024.03.06 A group of Tohoku University researchers including Assistant Professor Satoshi Iihama at Frontier Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Sciences (FRIS) has developed a theoretical model for a high-performance spin wave reservoir computing (RC) that utilizes spintronics technology. The breakthrough moves scientists closer to realizing energy-efficient, nanoscale computing with unparalleled computational power.   Details of their findings were published in npj Spintronics on March 1, 2024.     The brain is the ultimate computer and scientists are constantly striving to create neuromorphic devices that mimic the brain&#39;s processing capabilities, low power consumption, and its ability to adapt to neural networks. The development of neuromorphic computing is revolutionary, allowing scientists to explore nanoscale realms, GHz speed, with low energy consumption.   In recent years, many advances in computational models inspired by the brain have been made. These artificial neural networks have demonstrated extraordinary performances in various tasks. However, current technologies are software-based; their computational speed, size, and energy consumption remain constrained by the properties of conventional electric computers.   RC works via a fixed, randomly generated network called the ‘reservoir.’ The reservoir enables the memorization of past input information and its nonlinear transformation. This unique characteristic allows for the integration of physical systems, such as magnetization dynamics, to perform various tasks for sequential data, like time-series forecasting and speech recognition.   Some have proposed spintronics as a means to realize high-performance devices. But devices produced so far have failed to live up to expectations. In particular, they have failed to achieve high performance at nanoscales with GHz speed.   “Our study proposed a physical RC that harnessed propagating spin waves,” says Natsuhiko Yoshinaga, co-author of the paper and associate professor at the Advanced Institute for Materials Research (WPI-AIMR). “The theoretical framework we developed utilized response functions that link input signals to propagating spin dynamics. This theoretical model elucidated the mechanism behind the high performance of spin wave RC, highlighting the scaling relationship between wave speed and system size to optimize the effectiveness of virtual nodes.”   Crucially, Yoshinaga and his colleagues helped clarify the mechanism for high-performance reservoir computing. In doing so, they harnessed various subfields, namely condensed matter physics and mathematical modeling. “By employing the unique properties of spintronics technology, we have potentially paved the way for a new era of intelligent computing, leading us closer to realizing a physical device that can be put to use in weather forecasts and speech recognition" adds Yoshinaga. Figure: A physical reservoir computer performs a task to transform input data to output data, such as time-series prediction. We use magnetic thin film for the reservoir part. Information of the input is carried by spin waves and propagated to the output node (shown in blue cylinders in the bottom figure) corresponding to the nodes in the reservoir (shown in yellow in the top figure).

This work opens up new possibilities for bioanalytical applications, such as cell separations in the realm of medical diagnostics.   Details of their breakthrough were published in the journal Microsystems and Nanoengineering on January 22, 2024.     Conceptional diagram: Twisted Fiber Microfluidics. (Credit: Kato et al.) Microfluidic devices are designed to handle minuscule fluid volumes, allowing researchers to perform analyses and processes with remarkable precision and efficiency. In recent years, microfluidic technology has rapidly advanced across various fields, including medicine, biology, and chemistry. Among them, three-dimensional spiral microfluidic devices stand out as game-changers. Their intricate corkscrew-like design allows for precise fluid control, efficient particle separation, and reagent mixing. However, their potential to revolutionize bioanalytical applications is hindered by the current challenges in fabrication. The process is time-consuming and costly, and existing manufacturing techniques limit material options and structural configurations.   To overcome these limitations, an interdisciplinary team from Tohoku University and OIST has introduced a miniaturized rotational thermal drawing process (mini-rTDP), drawing inspiration from traditional Japanese candy-making techniques – the fabrication of Kintaro-ame.   Their innovative approach involves rotating the materials during thermal stretching to create intricate three-dimensional structures within fibers. This process is highly versatile, accommodating a wide range of materials that can deform when heated, unlocking endless possibilities for combining diverse materials.   “Mini-rTDP facilitates rapid-prototyping of three-dimensional microfluidic systems, ideal for precise biofluid manipulation,” points out Yuanyuan Guo, an associate professor at Tohoku University&#39;s Frontier Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Sciences (FRIS).   "Mini-rTDP involves creating a molded polymer preform containing channels, which are subsequently stretched and heated to generate microfluidic channels within a fiber. These channels can then be further rotated to shape three-dimensional spiral configurations”, explained Shunsuke Kato, a junior researcher at FRIS and the first author of the paper.   In collaboration with Amy Shen, leader of the Micro/Bio/Nanofluidics Unit at OIST, the interdisciplinary Tohoku-OIST team conducted both simulations and experiments to visualize fluid flows within the spiral structures. Daniel Carlson from Shen&#39;s group remarked, “We have confirmed the presence of Dean vortices, a type of rotational flow occurring in curved channels, in our devices, thus affirming their potential for significantly enhancing cell and particle separation efficiency." "The rapid prototyping of three-dimensional spiral microfluidics using mini-rTDP represents a remarkable advancement in the field of microfluidics. This technology offers unparalleled versatility, precision, and the potential to catalyze transformative changes across various industries," highlights Shen.   "Furthermore, we are actively pursuing the integration of microfluidic channels with functionalities such as electrodes, biosensors, and actuators directly into fibers. This endeavor has the potential to revolutionize Lab-on-Chip bioanalytical technologies," elaborates Guo.   This research is a testament to the collaborative efforts of the OIST SHIKA program and the matching funds provided by Tohoku University, highlighting the strong partnership and synergy between these two institutions.   Publication Details Title: Twisted Fiber Microfluidics: A Cutting-Edge Approach to 3D Spiral Devices Authors: Shunsuke Kato, Daniel W.

The new observations in 2018, which feature the first participation of the Greenland Telescope, reveal a familiar, bright ring of emission of the same size as we found in 2017.  This bright ring surrounds a dark central shadow, and the brightest part of the ring in 2018 has shifted by about 30º relative from 2017 to now lie in the 5 o’clock position.
