Excess acetate has long been an issue for the production of recombinant proteins in E. coli cells. Recently, improvements in acetate tolerance have been achieved through the use of genetic strategies and medium supplementation with certain amino acids and pyrimidines. The aim of our study was to evaluate an alternative to improve the acetate tolerance of E.(More)
The v-myb avian myeloblastosis viral oncogene homolog (MYB) superfamily constitutes one of the most abundant groups of transcription factors (TFs) described in plants. To date, little is known about the MYB genes in Rehmannia glutinosa. Forty unique MYB genes with full-length cDNA sequences were isolated. These 40 genes were grouped into five categories,(More)
BACKGROUND YN968D1 (Apatinib) selectively inhibits phosphorylation of VEGFR-2 and tumor angiogenesis in mice model. The study was conducted to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), safety profile, pharmacokinetic variables, and antitumor activity in advanced solid malignancies. METHODS This dose-escalation study was conducted according to the(More)
Fungal pathogens of plants and insects infect their hosts by direct penetration of the cuticle. Plant and insect cuticles are covered by a hydrocarbon-rich waxy outer layer that represents the first barrier against infection. However, the fungal genes that underlie insect waxy layer degradation have received little attention. Here we characterize the single(More)
BACKGROUND It is now clear that there are two histological types (type 1 and type 2) of autoimmune pancreatitis (AI P). The histological substance of type 1 AI P is known as lymphoplasmacytic sclerosing pancreatitis (LPSP) or traditional AIP, and type 2 AIP is characterized by distinct histology called idiopathic duct centric pancreatitis (IDCP). Serum IgG4(More)
A yellow-pigmented, Gram-stain negative and facultatively anaerobic bacterium, designated MF326T, was isolated from a sample of sediment collected from a sea cucumber culture pond in Rongcheng, China (122°14′34″E 36°54′36″N). Cells of strain MF326T were found to be catalase negative and oxidase positive. Optimal growth was found to occur at 30 °C and pH(More)
The mediator complex, a conserved assembly of multi-functional proteins, is required for the transcription of almost all protein-encoding genes in eukaryotes. In this report, 36 mediator complex subunit transcripts in Rehmannia glutinosa were identified from a leaf and tuberous root EST database. Nine of these transcripts had integrated open-reading frames(More)
Strain 435T, a catalase- and oxidase-positive, beige-pigmented, facultatively anaerobic and Gram-stain-negative marine bacterium, was isolated from marine sediment collected in the Arctic (8°21′629′′E 72°8′827′′N). The cells of the type strain are short- to curve-rods and able to grow at 4–25 °C, pH 6.0–9.0 and in the presence of 0.5–6.0 % (w/v) NaCl. It(More)
AIM Both Borneolum (Chinese name Bingpian; dextrorotatory borneol) and Borneolum syntheticum (synthetic Bingpian; a mixture of optically inactive borneol and isoborneol) have been used for medicinal purposes in Chinese traditional medicine. The aim of this study was to develop a sensitive assay for measuring volatile ingredients borneol, isoborneol, and(More)
BACKGROUND Anlotinib is a novel multi-target tyrosine kinase inhibitor that is designed to primarily inhibit VEGFR2/3, FGFR1-4, PDGFR α/β, c-Kit, and Ret. We aimed to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, and antitumor activity of anlotinib in patients with advanced refractory solid tumors. METHODS Anlotinib (5-16 mg) was orally administered in patients(More)
