DBM (dibenzoylmethane) is a minor constituent of licorice that has antimutagenic activity. However, its other biological activities are not well-known. The structurally related beta-diketones hydroxydibenzoylmethane (HDB) and hydroxymethyldibenzoylmethane (HMDB) were able to induce apoptosis in colorectal carcinoma COLO 205 cells. Thus, the effect of(More)
To improve the cytotoxicity of PEI25k and the transfection efficiency of poly(beta-amino ester) with DNA, we synthesized a poly(beta-amino ester), PEDP, bearing ester linkages in the backbone and tertiary amines in the backbone and side chain and prepared a binary mixture, PEDP-PEI25k, using physical blending meyhod. Both poly(beta-amino ester) PEDP and(More)
The present study used a directed forgetting paradigm to investigate whether socially anxious individuals show a memory bias for social information. Socially anxious and non-anxious participants viewed three types of words: socially negative, socially positive, and neutral. Each word was presented on a computer screen and was followed by a cue instructing(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of the ratio of sulfur added to total sediment solids (SA/TS) on the remobilization of heavy metals from contaminated river sediment by indigenous sulfur-oxidizing bacteria. Also, the difference in metal binding fractions before and after bioleaching was explored. It was found that sediment pH decreased at a(More)
New glycidyl-based (epoxide-based) poly(aminoester) (EPAE) containing hydroxyl and amino groups in the backbone and side chain was synthesized. EPAE self-assembled readily with the plasmid DNA(pCMV-betagal) in HEPES buffer and was characterized by dynamic light scattering, Zeta-potential, fluorescence images, and XTT cell viability assays. To evaluate the(More)
