Abstract Two different cationic tetraphenyl porphyrins, one with two carboxyphenyl groups in cis-position and the other in trans-position (cis- and trans-H(4)DCPP(2+)), have been examined to control the structure of their 2D supramolecular assemblies in 0.05 M H(2)SO(4) at electrochemical interfaces. Electrochemical scanning tunneling microscopy (EC-STM) images revealed the formation of supramolecularly organized nanostructures of cis-H(4)DCPP(2+) such as dimer, trimer, and tetramer on the (square root(3) x square root(7)) sulfate/bisulfate adlayer, suggesting the importance of both electrostatic interaction between cationic porphyrin core and sulfate/bisulfate adlayer and the hydrogen bond formation between carboxyl groups of the nearest neighbor cationic porphyrins. Trans-H(4)DCPP(4+) ions were also found to be aligned in the square root(3) direction of the sulfate/bisulfate adlayer. The structure of these cationic porphyrin adlayers was found to depend upon the electrode potential; i.e., when the potential was changed in the negative direction, the (square root(3) x square root(7)) sulfate/bisulfate adlayer disappeared, and no ordered arrays were formed. In contrast, when 0.1 M HClO(4) was used as an electrolyte solution, only a disordered array was observed. The results of the present study indicate that the (square root(3) x square root(7)) sulfate/bisulfate adlayer formed on Au(111) in 0.05 M H(2)SO(4) plays a significant role as a nanorail template in the control of electrostatically assembled diacid porphyrin dicarboxylic acid derivative. In addition, the high-resolution STM clearly distinguished between cis-H(4)DCPP(2+) ion and cis-H(2)DCPP molecule. The cis-H(2)DCPP molecules on Au(111) provided an adlayer structure and an electrochemical behavior which are different from those of cis-H(4)DCPP(2+) ions.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
