A glycosidase enzyme with both beta-glucosidase and beta-fucosidase activities has been purified from the seeds of Dalbergia cochinchinensis Pierre (Thai Rosewood) by ammonium sulfate fractionation, preparative isoelectric focusing, and Sephadex G-150 chromatography. The enzyme has molecular weights of 330,000 in the native state and 66,000 in the denatured(More)
Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA), a malignant tumor derived from bile duct epithelium, occurs with a higher incidence in tropical countries, such as Thailand. Distinguishing CCA from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) of the liver often requires the use of histochemistry, so molecular markers for diagnosis and prognosis are still required. In this study, the(More)
Erythropoiesis in β0-thalassaemia/Hb E patients, the most common variant form of β-thalassaemia in Southeast Asia, is characterized by accelerated differentiation and over-expansion of erythroid precursor cells. The mechanism driving this accelerated expansion and differentiation remain unknown. To address this issue a proteomic analysis was undertaken to(More)
Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) occur with relatively high incidence in Thailand. The secretome, proteins secreted from cancer cells, are potentially useful as biomarkers of the diseases. Proteomic analysis was performed on the secreted proteins of cholangiocarcinoma (HuCCA-1) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC-S102, HepG2,(More)
A new labdane diterpenoid, (E)-labda-8(17),12-dien-15,16-olide (1) together with eight known compounds, coronarin D (2), coronarin D methyl ether (3), coronarin D ethyl ether (4), isocoronarin D (5), coronarin B (6), labda-8(17),11,13-trien-15,16-olide (7), (E)-labda-8(17),12-diene-15,16-dial (8) and 16-hydroxylabda-8(17),11,13-trien-15,16-olide (9), are(More)
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related to death in both men and women. Protein biomarkers for lung cancer were investigated using the expression of proteins from lung cancer cell line (A549) and compared with those of normal lung fibroblast cell line (MRC-5). Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of A549 and MRC-5 cells was carried out and(More)
O-GlcNAcylation is a post-translational modification of serine and threonine residues which is dynamically regulated by 2 enzymes; O-GlcNAc transferase (OGT) and O-GlcNAcase (OGA) that catalyze the addition and removal of a single N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) molecule, respectively. This modification is thought to be a nutrient sensor in highly(More)
The Northeastern region of Thailand is well known to have high incidence of bile duct cancer known as cholangiocarcinoma. So there is a continued need to improve diagnosis and treatment, and discovery of biomarkers for early detection of bile duct cancer should greatly improve treatment outcome for these patients. The secretome, a collection of proteins(More)
Cholangiocarcinoma (CCA), a high-prevalence cancer in Thailand, is highly metastatic and has high mortality rates. Anoikis resistance or the ability of cells to survive after detachment from extracellular matrix is a necessary property of metastatic cancer. Here, we report differential protein expression of an anoikis-resistant CCA cell line culture, under(More)
To study the structure and function of reptile lysozymes, we have reported their purification, and in this study we have established the amino acid sequence of three egg white lysozymes in soft-shelled turtle eggs (SSTL A and SSTL B from Trionyx sinensis, ASTL from Amyda cartilaginea) by using the rapid peptide mapping method. The established amino acid(More)
