Folimycin (concanamycin A), an inhibitor of V-type H(+)-ATPase, blocks cell-surface expression of virus-envelope glycoproteins.
Folimycin (concanamycin A) inhibited syncytium formation without affecting glycoprotein synthesis. Excretion of the glycoprotein (G protein) of vesicular stomatitis virus into the medium was blocked.Expand

Determination of the degree of acetylation of chitin/chitosan by pyrolysis-gas chromatography in the presence of oxalic Acid.
A new method to determine directly and rapidly the degree of acetylation of chitin/chitosan was developed based on reactive pyrolysis-gas chromatography in the presence of an oxalic acid aqueousExpand

Site-specific fatty acid-conjugation to prolong protein half-life in vivo.
Therapeutic proteins are indispensable in treating numerous human diseases. However, therapeutic proteins often suffer short serum half-life. In order to extend the serum half-life, a natural albuminExpand

Effect of x-ray incident direction and scintillator layer design on image quality of indirect-conversion flat-panel detector with GOS phosphor
In this study, we characterized the image quality of two types of indirect-conversion flat-panel detectors: an X-ray incident-side photo-detection system (IS) and an X-ray penetration-sideExpand

“Click polyester”: Synthesis of polyesters containing triazole units in the main chain via safe and rapid “click” chemistry and their properties
Click Cu(I)-catalyzed polymerizations of diynes that contained ester linkages and diazides were performed to produce polyesters (click polyesters) of large molecular weights [(∼1.0–7.0) × 104], thatExpand

Direct dehydration polycondensation of lactic acid catalyzed by water‐stable Lewis acids
Poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA) is generally produced by ring-opening polymerization of (S,S)-lactide, which is prepared from dehydration polycondensation of lactic acid and successive depolymerization.Expand

Synthesis of novel chitin derivatives having poly(2‐alkyl‐2‐oxazoline) side chains
Novel chitin derivatives having poly(2-alkyl-2-oxazoline) side chains, i.e., chitin-graft-poly(2-methyl-2-oxazoline) (4a) and chitin-graft-poly(2-ethyl-2-oxazoline) (4b), were synthesized by means ofExpand
