Niacin and its related derivatives have been shown to have effects on cellular activities. However, the molecular mechanism of its reduced immunosuppressive effects and photoprotective effects remains unclear. In this study, we investigated the molecular mechanism of the photoprotective effect of niacin in ultraviolet(More)
Staphylococcus epidermidis (S. epidermidis) is an opportunistic pathogen with low pathogenicity and a cause of the repeated outbreak of bovine mastitis in veterinary clinical settings. In this report, a biofilm model of S. epidermidis was generated and the minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) and sub-MIC (SMIC) on bacterial cultures were assessed for the(More)
G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) represent one of the most important categories of membrane proteins that play important roles in signaling pathways. GPCRs transduce the extracellular stimuli into intracellular second messengers via their coupling to specific class of heterotrimeric GTP-binding proteins (G proteins) and the subsequent regulation of a(More)
