After treatment of Clostridium botulinum type A neurotoxin with papain, three fragments (Mrs, 101,000, 45,000, and 43,000) were purified by hydrophobic and ion-exchange chromatography with a high-performance liquid chromatographic system. Immunoblotting analyses with monoclonal antibodies showed that the 101,000-dalton fragment consisted of the light chain(More)
Antisense RNA has emerged as a crucial regulator of opposite-strand protein-coding genes in the long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) category, but little is known about their dynamics and decay process in the context of a stress response. Antisense transcripts from the fission yeast fbp1 locus (fbp1-as) are expressed in glucose-rich conditions and anticorrelated(More)
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play important roles in the regulation of gene expression. In fission yeast, glucose starvation triggers a transcriptional cascade of polyadenylated lncRNAs in the upstream region of the fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase gene (fbp1(+) ), which is correlated with stepwise chromatin remodeling and necessary for the massive induction of(More)
We examined whether Candida albicans gut colonization aggravates immune diseases in mice. Chronic and latent C. albicans gut colonization was established by the intragastric inoculation of C. albicans in mice fed as part of a purified diet. Allergic diarrhea was induced by repetitive intragastric administration of ovalbumin in sensitized BALB/c mice.(More)
Following the characterization of thunberginols A, B, and F, six bioactive principles, thunberginols C, D, and E, thunberginol G 3'-O-glucoside, (-)-hydrangenol 4'-O-glucoside, and (+)-hydrangenol 4'-O-glucoside, were isolated from Hydrangeae Dulcis Folium, the processed leaves of Hydrangea macrophylla SERINGE var. thunbergii MAKINO, together with four(More)
We previously observed that gut colonization by Candida albicans promoted serum antibody response to orally administered ovalbumin in mice. We therefore postulated that C. albicans affects oral tolerance induction. The present study tested this idea. BALB/c mice were intragastrically administered with either C. albicans (1 × 10(7)) or vehicle, and the(More)
