The influence of carbon source and aeration rate on fermentation broth rheology, mycelial morphology and red pigment production of Paecilomyces sinclairii was investigated in a 5-l stirred-tank bioreactor. The characteristics of P. sinclairii grown on starch and on sucrose medium were comparatively studied: the specific growth rate in sucrose medium (0.04(More)
The average mass composition of cosmic rays with primary energies between 10 17 and 10 18 eV has been studied using a hybrid detector consisting of the High Resolution Fly's Eye (HiRes) prototype and the MIA muon array. Measurements have been made of the change in the depth of shower maximum and the muon density as a function of energy. The results show(More)
Agaricus bisporus (white button mushroom; WBM) contains high levels of dietary fibers and antioxidants including vitamin C, D, and B(12); folates; and polyphenols that may provide beneficial effects on cardiovascular and diabetic diseases. The objective of this study was to examine the hypothesis that intake of the fruiting bodies of WBM regulates(More)
UNLABELLED Biodistribution and dosimetry of 88Y (and equimolar 90Y) Janus-dodecanetetraacetic acid (DOTA) were performed using a three-step pretargeting protocol in BALB/c mice bearing mouse mammary adenocarcinoma (KHJJ) implants. Pretargeting was performed with mouse monoclonal antibody (mAb) 2D12.5 specific for yttrium-DOTA, and the chase was Y-DOTA-human(More)
A new approach to the hardware implementation of artificial, electronic pulse-mode neural circuits is proposed and demonstrated based on the use of a novel heterostructure device that exhibits an S-type current-voltage characteristic. The new device consists of a multi-period quantum well structure with heavily doped n+ GaAs quantum wells and undoped AlGaAs(More)
BACKGROUND Chrysanthemum indicum L. flower (CIF) has been widely used as tea in Korea. This study aims to investigate the hepatoprotective effect of the hot water extract of CIF (HCIF) in in vitro and in vivo systems. METHODS Hepatoprotective activities were evaluated at 250 to 1000 μg/mL concentrations by an in vitro assay using normal human hepatocytes(More)
Antagonistic microorganisms against Rhizoctonia solani were isolated and their antifungal activities were investigated. Two hundred sixteen bacterial isolates were isolated from various soil samples and 19 isolates were found to antagonize the selected plant pathogenic fungi with varying degrees. Among them, isolate C9 was selected as an antagonistic(More)
Agaricus bisporus white button mushroom (WBM) is widely consumed in most countries for its culinary properties. Recently, its dietary intake has been shown to protect against breast cancer. Mushroom polysaccharides are known for their immunomodulating and antitumor properties; however, little is known regarding the properties of A. bisporus polysaccharides.(More)
