Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are emitted as gases from certain solids or liquids. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. VOCs are emitted by a wide array of products numbering in the thousands.
Organic chemicals are widely used as ingredients in household products. Paints, varnishes and wax all contain organic solvents, as do many cleaning, disinfecting, cosmetic, degreasing and hobby products. Fuels are made up of organic chemicals. All of these products can release organic compounds while you are using them, and, to some degree, when they are stored.
Countries will need to develop detailed plans for compound risk preparedness, taking account of regional differences in climate vulnerability, the strength of existing health and social safety net systems, and outbreak trajectory. In all cases, governments and multilateral institutions responding to COVID-19, the climate crisis and their intersection must recognize that interventions and guidance must be tailored to the unique vulnerabilities, needs and circumstances of affected populations.
Genome-wide identification of the mechanism of action (MoA) of small-molecule compounds characterizing their targets, effectors, and activity modulators represents a highly relevant yet elusive goal, with critical implications for assessment of compound efficacy and toxicity. Current approaches are labor intensive and mostly limited to elucidating high-affinity binding target proteins. We introduce a regulatory network-based approach that elucidates genome-wide MoA proteins based on the assessment of the global dysregulation of their molecular interactions following compound perturbation. Analysis of cellular perturbation profiles identified established MoA proteins for 70% of the tested compounds and elucidated novel proteins that were experimentally validated. Finally, unknown-MoA compound analysis revealed altretamine, an anticancer drug, as an inhibitor of glutathione peroxidase 4 lipid repair activity, which was experimentally confirmed, thus revealing unexpected similarity to the activity of sulfasalazine. This suggests that regulatory network analysis can provide valuable mechanistic insight into the elucidation of small-molecule MoA and compound similarity.

The compound management staff operate in partnership with the automation team. Using numerous types of sophisticated and automated sample management and liquid-handling instrumentation, these experts provide follow-up and dose-response library-plating services for NCATS screening activities.
The compound management team acquires chemicals for small molecule screening and registers chemical structures into a hybrid commercial/in-house database. Using rigorous storage and retrieval protocols, NCATS experts prepare chemicals and disperse them into multiple vials and plate types. The team evaluates and implements novel technologies and methods and also develops custom software and Web development solutions to achieve an efficient workflow.
The NExT Diversity Libraries contain chemical scaffolds across 10 commercial suppliers and compounds that were selected to fall within the boundaries of drug-like chemical space (e.g., Lipinski's rule of five, high QED scores).
The NCATS Pharmacologically Active Chemical Toolbox (NPACT) is a library of annotated compounds that inform on novel phenotypes, biological pathways and cellular processes. There are more than 7,000 mechanisms and phenotypes identified in the literature and worldwide patents that cover biological interactions within mammalian, microbial, plant and other model systems.
The NCATS Pharmaceutical Collection (NPC) is a library of all compounds that have been approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration, along with a number of approved molecules from related agencies in foreign countries.
Canvass, a screening library for natural products, was created by NCATS in collaboration with academic and industry researchers to uncover the potential medical use of these compounds and enable the creation of new treatments for diseases.
NCATS scientists collaborated with National Cancer Institute and Northwestern University researchers to identify a new compound, called metarrestin, that blocks the spread of several types of cancer in animal models.
OLE compound documents enable users working within a single application to manipulate data written in various formats and derived from multiple sources. For example, a user might insert into a word processing document a graph created in a second application and a sound object created in a third application. Activating the graph causes the second application to load its user interface, or at least that part containing tools necessary to edit the object. Activating the sound object causes the third application to play it. In both cases, a user is able to manipulate data from external sources from within the context of a single document.
OLE compound document technology rests on a foundation consisting of COM, structured storage, and uniform data transfer. As summarized below, each of these core technologies plays a critical role in OLE compound documents:
A compound document object is essentially a COM object that can be embedded in, or linked to, an existing document. As a COM object, a compound document object exposes the IUnknown interface, through which clients can obtain pointers to its other interfaces, including several, such as IOleObject, IOleLink, and IViewObject2, that provide special features unique to compound document objects.
A compound document object must implement the IPersistStorage or, optionally, IPersistStream interfaces to manage its own storage. A container used to create compound documents must supply the IStorage interface, through which objects store and retrieve data. Containers almost always provide instances of IStorage obtained from OLE's Compound Files implementation. Containers must also use an object's IPersistStorage and/or IPersistStream interfaces.
Applications that support compound documents must implement IDataObject because embedded objects and linked objects begin as data that has been transferred using special OLE clipboard formats, rather than standard Microsoft Windows clipboard formats. In other words, formatting data as an embedded or linked object is simply one more option provided by OLE's uniform data transfer model.
OLE's compound document technology benefits both software developers and users alike. Instead of feeling obligated to cram every conceivable feature into a single application, software developers are now free, if they like, to develop smaller, more focused applications that rely on other applications to supply additional features. In cases where a software developer decides to provide an application with capabilities beyond its core features, the developer can implement these additional services as separate DLLs, which are loaded into memory only when their services are required. Users benefit from smaller, faster, more capable software that they can mix and match as needed, manipulating all required components from within a single master document.
Compound clips have one set of role components per clip. A unique property of compound clips is that you have the option to generate role components based on either subroles or roles. When you generate role components based on subroles, a role component is created for each subrole found within the compound clip. When you generate role components based on roles, the subroles in the clip are combined into the role components of their parent roles.
You can use role components in compound clips to make changes to an entire role at once. For example, a typical project has clips with various Dialogue subroles assigned, some clips with Effects subroles, and perhaps a clip with a Music subrole. If you wrap the entire project in a compound clip, the resulting compound clip has role components for Dialogue, Music, and Effects. You can apply volume changes and effects to the role components to complete your mix.
If you want to assign different roles to specific clips within the compound clip, you can open the compound clip for editing and then assign subroles to individual components of the constituent clips.
Final Cut Pro creates two sets of role components for each synced clip: one based on the subrole assignments for all the clips in the primary storyline, and one based on the subrole assignments for all the connected clips. For each set of role components, the same rules apply as for compound clips or for angles in multicam clips.
