Magnetic resonance contrast agents that can be activated in response to specific triggers hold potential as molecular biosensors that may be of great utility in non-invasive disease diagnosis. We developed an activatable agent based on superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIOs) that is sensitive to oxidative stress, a factor in the pathophysiology(More)
Natural tannins are attractive as building blocks for biomaterials due to their antioxidant properties and ability to form interpolymer complexes (IPCs) with other macromolecules. One of the major challenges to tannin usage in biomedical applications is their instability at physiological conditions and a lack of control over the purity and reactivity.(More)
Two new ent-kauranoid diterpenoid dimers, fritillebin C (1) and fritillebin D (2), were isolated from the bulbs of Fritillaria ebeiensis G.D. Yu and G.Q. Ji. Their structures were determined to be ent-16beta-hydroxy-kauran-17-yl ent-16beta3-kauran-17-oate (1); ent-16alpha-hydroxy-kauran-17-yl ent-16beta-kauran-17-oate (2) by means of spectral analysis and(More)
