Aspergillus fumigatus remains a major respiratory pathogen in birds. In poultry, infection by A. fumigatus may induce significant economic losses particularly in turkey production. A. fumigatus develops and sporulates easily in poor quality bedding or contaminated feedstuffs in indoor farm environments. Inadequate ventilation and dusty conditions increase(More)
High fructose intake is associated with adverse metabolic syndromes. This study was designed to investigate whether the polysaccharides derived from Zizyphus jujube cv. Shaanbeitanzao (ZSP) could alleviate high fructose-induced insulin resistance and dyslipidemia in mice. ZSP was identified by capillary zone electrophoresis as an acidic heteropolysaccharide(More)
Dietary supplementation of selenium-enriched tea is known to have an anticancer health benefit. This study was to investigate the inhibitory effect of selenium-containing tea polysaccharides (Se-GTPs) from a new variety of selenium-enriched Ziyang green tea against human MCF-7 breast cancer cells. Se-GTPs dose-dependently exhibited an effective cell growth(More)
Multiple-locus variable-number tandem repeat (VNTR) analysis (MLVA) is a prominent subtyping method to resolve closely related microbial isolates to provide information for establishing genetic patterns among isolates and to investigate disease outbreaks. The usefulness of MLVA was recently demonstrated for the avian major pathogen Chlamydophila psittaci.(More)
This study was designed to investigate chemical characterization of the water-soluble polysaccharides extracted from Keemun black tea (KBTP), and their antioxidant and hepatoprotective effects against CCl4-induced oxidative damage in mice. HPLC analysis revealed that KBTP is the typical acidic heteropolysaccharides and consisted of nine monosaccharides.(More)
Chlamydia psittaci is a zoonotic pathogen associated primarily with avian chlamydiosis. New chlamydial agents with suspected zoonotic potential were recently detected from domestic poultry in Germany and France indicating that the spectrum of Chlamydiaceae encountered in birds is not confined to a single chlamydial species. For further characterization, a(More)
This study was designed to investigate the hepatoprotective effects of the tea polysaccharides (ZTPs) extracted from a selenium-enriched Ziyang green tea (Camellia sinensis). ZTPs were identified as the heteropolysaccharides with glucose (31.4%), arabinose (23.5%) and galactose (21.8%) being the main constitutive monosaccharides. ZTPs displayed noteworthy(More)
Litsea verticillata Hance (Lauraceae), a Chinese medicine used to treat swelling caused by injury or by snake bites, was the first plant identified by our National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded International Cooperative Biodiversity Group (ICBG) project to exhibit anti-HIV activities. From this plant, we discovered a class of 8 novel litseane compounds,(More)
We demonstrate a nonlinear optical filter with ultranarrow bandwidth in cesium vapor. The optical filter operates on the 6S(1/2)→7P(3/2) transition at 455 nm. The single peak transmission at the 6S(1/2), F=4→7P(31/2), F'=5 transition is 9.7% with a bandwidth of 6.2 MHz, whereas at the 6S(1/2), F=3→7P(3/2), F'=2, 3 (cross-over) transition is 6.1% with a(More)
We demonstrate a Cs FADOF (Faraday anomalous dispersion optical filter) with a single transmission peak resonant with the 6S(1/2), F = 4 → 7P(3/2), F' = 3, 4, 5 transition at 455 nm. The filter achieves a single peak transmission of 86%. With the technique of saturated absorption spectra, we obtain the bandwidth of the single peak, which is 1.5 GHz. While(More)
