AIMS Isolation and characterization of an agarase-producing bacterium Agarivorans sp. HZ105. METHODS AND RESULTS An agarase-producing bacterium strain HZ105 had been isolated from marine sediment sample. Based on phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence and phenotypic analysis, as well as biochemical analyses, this strain was named Agarivorans(More)
Numerous spaceflight experiments have noted changes in the roots that are consistent with hypoxia in the root zone. These observations include general ultrastructure analysis and biochemical measurements to direct measurements of stress specific enzymes. In experiments that have monitored alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH), the data shows this hypoxically(More)
AIM To study the effect of mitomycin (Mit) or cisplatin (Cis) on the proliferation of lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells in patients with transitional cell cancer of bladder and their cytolysis to bladder tumor cells. METHODS LAK cell proliferation was assayed in the presence of Mit or Cis by cell counting. Bladder cancer cell lines BIU-87 and EJ(More)
AIM To study the effect of tretinoin (Tre) or retinol (Ret) on the proliferation of lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells in patients with transitional cell cancer of bladder and their cytolysis to bladder tumor cells. METHODS LAK cell proliferation was assayed in the presence of either Tre or Ret by cell counting. Human transitional bladder cancer cell(More)
AIM To study the effects of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) on the proliferation of lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells from patients with bladder cancer and LAK cells cytolysis against bladder tumor cells. METHODS LAK cell proliferation was assayed in the presence of various concentrations of bFGF combined with interleukin-2 (IL-2) by cell(More)
Reperfusion after 30-min regional or global ischemia of the isolated working rat hearts did not restore the cardiac functions (as measured by cardiac output and power production), but exacerbated the existing damages. The lipid peroxidation product malondialdehyde (MDA) in the regional and global ischemic-reperfused myocardium increased by 37.6 and 45.2%,(More)
