Paecilomyces tenuipes is a famous Chinese medicinal entomopathogenic fungus that grows within the larvae of silkworms. 4beta-acetoxyscirpendiol (4-MAS), a cytotoxic compound belonging to the scirpenol subfamily of trichothecene mycotoxin, was isolated from Paecilomyces tenuipes. To further elucidate the cytotoxic mechanism of 4-MAS, evidences of its(More)
Activated inflammatory leukocytes generate a variety of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS) that may have roles in mutagenesis and carcinogenesis. The purpose of the present study was to explore the relationship between inflammatory leukocyte activation and mutagenesis using co-culture systems. We investigated the mutagenic potentials of(More)
Cordyceps militaris is a traditional herbal ingredient frequently used for tonic and medicinal purposes in eastern Asia. The hot water extract of its cultivated fruiting bodies demonstrated a potent cytotoxic effect against the proliferation of the human premyelocytic leukemia cell HL-60, with an IC50 of 0.8 mg/ml for a 12-h treatment.

During the course of evolution, animals encountered the harmful effects of fungi, which are strong pathogens. Therefore, they have developed powerful mechanisms to protect themselves against these fungal invaders. β-Glucans are glucose polymers of a linear β(1,3)-glucan backbone with β(1,6)-linked side chains. The immunostimulatory and antitumor activities(More)
Mobile IP is a common standard to support global mobility of mobile hosts (MHs). One of the major problems for the mobile IP is frequent location update and high signaling overhead. To solve this problem, a regional registration was proposed to employ the hierarchy of the foreign agents (FAs) and the gateway foreign agents (GFAs) to localize registration(More)
