Canonical correlation analysis (CCA) is a well-known technique for extracting linearly correlated features from multiple views (i.e., sets of features) of data. Recently, a locality-preserving CCA, named LPCCA, has been developed to incorporate the neighborhood information into CCA. Although LPCCA is proved to be better in revealing the intrinsic data(More)
Hyaluronidases are a family of enzymes that degrade hyaluronic acid (hyaluronan, HA) and widely used in many fields. A hyaluronidase producing bacteria strain was screened from the air. 16S ribosomal DNA (16S rDNA) analysis indicated that the strain belonged to the genus Bacillus, and the strain was named as Bacillus sp. A50. This is the first report of a(More)
Colorectal cancer is one of the most serious illnesses among diagnosed cancer. As a new type of anti-cancer composition from tocotrienol-rich fraction of palm oil, γ-tocotrienol is widely used in anti-cancer research. The objectives of this study were to investigate the effects of γ-tocotrienol on human colon cancer SW620 and HCT-8 cells. We showed that(More)
To synthesize and evaluate the antitumor efficacy of double-targeted docetaxel (DTX)-carboxymethyl chitosan (CMCS)-PEG-NGR (DTX-CPN) conjugates that could target to CD13 over-expressed tumor neovascular endothelium cells and tumor cells. DTX was conjugated to CMCS via biodegradable linker and cNGR was applied to endow the conjugates with double targeting(More)
TIPP is a novel thymic immunosuppressive pentapeptide originally obtained from calf thymic immunosuppressive extract. The present study aimed to investigate the inhibitory activity of TIPP on IgE-mediated activation of RBL-2H3 cells. Release of β-hexosaminidase and histamine, intracellular calcium, membrane ruffling, mRNA levels of cytokines,(More)
Trastuzumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting HER2, has demonstrated clinical benefits for women with HER2-positive breast cancer; however, trastuzumab resistance remains the biggest clinical challenge. In this study, results showed that tunicamycin, an inhibitor of N-glycosylation, synergistically enhanced the antitumor activity of trastuzumab(More)
The object of this study was to explore the feasibility of support vector machine (SVM) to identify the origin of chondroitin sulfate (CS) by near infrared spectroscopy. 96 batches CS from three different origins were collected in this research, 66 batches of which were chosen for training set by Kennard-Stone (KS) method and the rest were used for testing.(More)
Hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural high molecular weight polysaccharide, is produced by Streptococcus zooepidemicus. However, Streptococcus has several drawbacks including its potential to produce exotoxins, so there is demand for an alternative HA source. Here, a recombinant HA biosynthesis operon, as well as the HA biosynthesis operon of S. zooepidemicus(More)
Low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) and Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase (SOD) were extensively investigated on preventing brain reperfusion injury after ischemia (BRII) in the past few years and both exhibited some advantages as well as limits in practice. To explore whether chemical modification for LMWH and SOD can lead to improved bioactivity,in our present(More)
Chondroitin sulfate (CS) plays important roles in the complement system. However, the CS structure is complicated due to different sources and the number and positions of sulfate groups. The objective of this study was to prepare different low molecular weight chondroitin sulfates (LMWCSs) and to investigate the biological activity in anti-complement(More)
