The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of circulating miR-765 and miR-149 as noninvasive early biomarkers for geriatric coronary artery disease (CAD) patients. A total of 69 angiographically documented CAD patients including 37 stable CAD (72.9 ± 4.2 years) and 32 unstable CAD (72.03 ± 4.3 years) and 20 healthy subjects (71.7 ± 5.2(More)
OBJECTIVE Circulating microRNAs have been recognized as promising biomarkers for various diseases. The present study aimed to explore the potential roles of circulating miR-149, miR-424 and miR-765 as non-invasive biomarkers for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease in middle-aged (40-60-year-old) patients. METHODS Sixty-five stable coronary artery(More)
A new actinomycete strain Micromonospora sp. K310 was isolated from Ghanaian mangrove river sediment. Spectroscopy-guided fractionation led to the isolation of two new compounds from the fermentation culture. One of the compounds is butremycin (2) which is the (3-hydroxyl) derivative of the known Streptomyces metabolite ikarugamycin (1) and the other(More)
Dithiolopyrrolones are a class of antibiotics that possess the unique pyrrolinonodithiole (4H-[1,2] dithiolo [4,3-b] pyrrol-5-one) skeleton linked to two variable acyl groups. To date, there are approximately 30 naturally occurring dithiolopyrrolone compounds, including holomycin, thiolutin, and aureothricin, and more recently thiomarinols, a unique class(More)
We report the structural characterization of a new pyrazinone analogue; butrepyrazinone, which was isolated from a new actinomycete strain Verrucosispora sp. K51G recovered from Ghanaian mangrove river sediment. Spectroscopy-guided fractionation led to the isolation of a compound from the fermentation culture and a combination of NMR spectroscopy,(More)
Most questions in proteomics require complex answers. Yet graph theory, supervised learning, and statistical model have decomposed complex questions into simple questions with simple answers. The expertise in the field of protein study often address tasks that demand answers as complex as the questions. Such complex answers may consist of multiple factors(More)
Presented here is a draft genome sequence of Streptomyces sp. strain CT34, which produces a novel ribosomally synthesized and posttranslationally modified peptide (RiPP). Analysis of the deduced open reading frame set identified the putative RiPP biosynthesis gene cluster, as well as other secondary metabolite gene clusters.
Knowledge on cysteine oxidation state and disulfide bond connectivity is of great importance to protein chemistry and 3-D structures. This research is aimed at finding the most relevant features in prediction of cysteines oxidation states and the disulfide bonds connectivity of proteins. Models predicting the oxidation states of cysteines are developed with(More)
EditoriaL EditoriaL Yersinia ruckeri is a gram-negative rod-shaped bacterium belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae. It is in the same genus as Yersinia pestis, the causative agent of the bubonic plaque and a category A select agent. The taxonomic assignment of Y. ruckeri, however, has raised controversy since it appears to have diverged from the rest(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a major public health problem for developed and developing countries and is the single leading cause of death worldwide. OBJECTIVES There is very few evidence regarding changes of both serum Lectin-like oxidized-low density lipoprotein receptor-1 (LOX-1) and adiponectin in patients with CAD accompanied with(More)
