Oral Delivery and Gastrointestinal Absorption of Soluble Glucans Stimulate Increased Resistance to Infectious Challenge
Glucans are immunomodulatory carbohydrates found in the cell walls of fungi and certain bacteria. We examined the pharmacokinetics of three water-soluble glucans (glucan phosphate, laminarin, andExpand

Differential High-Affinity Interaction of Dectin-1 with Natural or Synthetic Glucans Is Dependent upon Primary Structure and Is Influenced by Polymer Chain Length and Side-Chain Branching
Glucans are structurally diverse fungal biopolymers that stimulate innate immunity and are fungal pathogen-associated molecular patterns. Dectin-1 is a C-type lectin-like pattern recognition receptorExpand

UNRAVELING THE HISTORY OF WATER ON MARS USING LITHIUM ISOTOPE FRACTIONATION MODELS
Introduction: Lithium is incorporated as trace element in most of basalt-bearing minerals, namely olivines, clinopyroxenes and plagioclase feldspars, where Li abundance lies in the order of 1-200 ppmExpand
