Four Gram-positive bacteria, strains A1-17B(T), A1-22(T), A1-3(T) and A1-8, isolated from the air in the Russian space laboratory Mir, were subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic study. Phylogenetic analysis of the bacteria based on their 16S rDNA sequence showed that they belong to the genera Rothia (A1-17B(T)), Rhodococcus (A1-22(T)) and Arthrobacter(More)
On the basis of phenotypic and genotypic characteristics and 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, novel species belonging to the genera Sphingomonas and Brevundimonas were identified from samples taken from the Russian space laboratory Mir. Strain A1-18(T) was isolated from the air. 16S rDNA sequence analysis showed that strain A1-18(T) formed a coherent(More)
Certain human subpopulations are metabolically healthy but obese, or metabolically obese but normal weight; such mutations uncouple obesity from glucose intolerance, revealing pathways implicated in Type 2 diabetes. Current searches for relevant genes consume significant effort. We have reported previously a novel double bromodomain protein called Brd2,(More)
BACKGROUND Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) promotes regeneration of bone, presumably through the action of concentrated growth factors. However, it is not clear how PRP affects the inflammatory response. The purpose of this study was to analyze the growth factors in PRP and to study the effects of PRP on monocyte cytokine release and lipoxin A(4) (LXA(4))(More)
Classification of strain W3-B1, which was isolated from condensation water in the Russian space laboratory Mir, was investigated by a polyphasic taxonomic approach. Cells of strain W3-B1 were nonmotile, asporogenous, gram-negative slender rods with rounded ends. 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis indicated that organism should be placed in the genus(More)
Chronic systemic inflammation links periodontal disease (PD) to increased incidence of cardiovascular disease. Activation of TLRs, particularly TLR4, promotes chronic inflammation in PD by stimulating myeloid cells. B cells from healthy individuals are generally refractory to TLR4 agonists as a result of low surface TLR4 expression. Unexpectedly, a(More)
Inonotus obliquus, a wild wood-decay fungus which grows on Betula trees in cool climates, has a variety of biological activities that the scientific community is paying more and more attention to. However, the research work is moving at a snail’s pace. The methods of strain identification and the hypha microstructure have not been reported. We isolated one(More)
With the presentation of more reliable groupcast proposal for IEEE802.11 WLAN, the QoS of video transmission based on groupcast (multicast / broadcast) is improved. To adapt the network load and bandwidth dynamic change in WLAN environment, we design a flexible optimization mechanism that integrates video steam priority character with more reliable(More)
Aurantiamide and aurantiamide acetate are the main active constituents of purslane (Portulaca oleracea L.), an edible plant with various biological activities. In this study, we developed a validated UHPLC-MS/MS method to quantitate the concentrations of aurantiamide and aurantiamide acetate in the plasma and various organ tissues of rat as the basis to(More)
Neutrophils from people with poorly controlled diabetes present a primed phenotype and secrete excessive superoxide. Phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2))-derived arachidonic acid (AA) activates the assembly of NADPH oxidase to generate superoxide anion. There is a gap in the current literature regarding which PLA(2) isoform regulates NADPH oxidase activation. The(More)
