Since it is very hard for cluster-based WSN(Wireless Sensor Network) to implement efficient and secure communication either with CSMA or TDMA. In view of the existing situation, a STC-MAC protocol has been put forward, which mingled with CSMA and TDMA and brought about better bottom-layer security. On the one hand, the wireless channel allocated by TDMA in(More)
N-myc downstream-regulated gene 2 (NDRG2) has been studied for its inhibitory effects against growth and metastasis of many tumor cell types. In this study, we showed NDRG2 expression was correlated with favorable recurrence-free survival of patients with breast cancer and inhibited metastasis of breast cancer cells (4T1). NDRG2 expression was examined in(More)
Brucella abortus is an intracellular bacterium and leading to a serious debilitating disease known as brucellosis. Ketamine is an anesthetic and a sedative that affects the immunomodulatory activities of various immune cells. The current study was to elucidate the role of ketamine in B. abortus infection, focusing on the phagocytic activity and immune(More)
Chicken interleukin-17 (chIL-17) gene was previously characterized through cloning from a chicken intestinal expressed sequence tag (EST) cDNA library. To further investigate the biological properties of chIL-17, six monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against a bacterially expressed chIL-17 recombinant protein were produced and their binding specificities(More)
Brucella spp. are Gram-negative, facultative, intracellular coccobacilli that are pathogenic to a variety of mammals, including ruminants and humans. The conventional serological test for diagnosing brucellosis in cattle in Korea is the standard tube agglutination test. However, agglutination tests sometimes give false-positive results due to(More)
The anticoccidial effects of Galla Rhois (GR) powder, which contains a major tannin-derived component of 52.7%, were evaluated in chickens following oral infection with Eimeria tenella. One-day-old chickens were assigned to five groups (control, unsupplemented, GR 0.5% supplemented [GRS 0.5%], GRS 1.0% [GRS 1.0%] and salinomycin supplemented [SS]). The(More)
In this study, we characterized the secreted proteins of Brucella abortus into the enriched media under the bacterial laboratory growth condition and investigated the pathogenic importance of culture supernatant (CS) proteins to B. abortus infection. CS proteins from stationary phase were concentrated and analyzed using 2D electrophoresis. In MALDI TOF/TOF(More)
Both interleukin-17A (IL-17A) and IL-17F are proinflammatory cytokines that have an important role in intestinal homeostasis via receptor signaling. These cytokines have been characterized in chickens, but very little is known about their receptors and their functional activity. We provide here the first description of the sequence analysis, bioactivity,(More)
Brucellosis is one of the most important and widespread zoonosis worldwide responsible for serious economic losses and considerable public health burden. In this study, we investigated the modulatory effect of a microtubule-inhibitor, nocodazole, on B. abortus infection in murine macrophages and in a mouse model. Nocodazole activated macrophages and(More)
Brucella abortus is an intracellular pathogen which can infect and persist in host cells through multiple interactions. Above all, its interaction to host cell receptor is important to understand the pathogenic mechanisms of B. abortus. Accordingly, we demonstrated that platelet-activating factor receptor (PAFR) affects host cell response against B. abortus(More)
