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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
A novel chemoenzymatic approach for the synthesis of disialyl tetrasaccharide epitopes found as the terminal oligosaccharides of GD1α, GT1aα, and GQ1bα is described. It relies on chemical manipulation of enzymatically generated trisaccharides as conformationally constrained acceptors for regioselective enzymatic α2-6-sialylation. This strategy provides a(More)
The availability of uridine 5′-diphosphate N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc) is a prerequisite for the GlcNAc-transferase-catalyzed glycosylation reaction. UDP-GlcNAc has already been synthesized using an N-acetylhexosamine 1-kinase (NahK) and a GlcNAc-1-P uridyltransferase (truncated GlmU) and here, a fusion enzyme was constructed with truncated GlmU and(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)
