The H1N1 influenza pandemic of 2009 has claimed over 18,000 lives. During this pandemic, development of drug resistance further complicated efforts to control and treat the widespread illness. This research utilizes traditional Chinese medicine Database@Taiwan (TCM Database@Taiwan) to screen for compounds that simultaneously target H1 and N1 to overcome(More)
—In March and April 2009, an outbreak of H1N1 influenza in Mexico led to hundreds of confirmed cases and a number of deaths. The worldwide spread of H1N1 had attracted everyone's attention and arisen an overwhelm fear. Up to now, there is still an urgent need in the solution for ending this fight. In this study, a QSAR model of neuraminidase (NA) type 1(More)
The recurrent sinonasal inverted papilloma (IP) could be transformed to sinonasal squamous cell carcinoma. We use protein expression patterns by immunohistochemical method to see whether the expression of p53, p16, p21, and p27 belongs to cell-cycle-regulators and PCNA (proliferating cell nuclear antigen) and Ki-67 the proliferation markers in sixty(More)
The β-site APP cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1) is an important target for causing Alzheimer's disease (AD), due to the brain deposition peptide amyloid beta (Aβ) require cleavages of amyloid precursor protein (APP) by BACE1 and γ-secretase, but treatments of AD still have side effect in recent therapy. This study utilizes the world largest traditional Chinese(More)
Dysfunction of β -glucocerebrosidase (GCase) has no hydrolytic activity in patients of Gaucher's disease and increasing the risk factor for Parkinson's disease occurrence. Pharmacological chaperone design has been used to treat with misfolded protein in related disease, which utilized a small compound to cause protein folding correctly. This study employed(More)
AIM To explore the potent inhibitor from one of the Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Epimedium sagittatum. METHODS We predicted the potent compound, ES03b, de novo evolution from the four Epimedium sagittatum components were verified by molecular docking, pharmacophore analysis, and analysis of quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) model,(More)
Apolipoprotein E4 (Apo E4) is the major genetic risk factor in the causation of Alzheimer's disease (AD). In this study we utilize virtual screening of the world's largest traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) database and investigate potential compounds for the inhibition of ApoE4. We present the top three TCM candidates: Solapalmitine, Isodesacetyluvaricin,(More)
Non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) is a major DNA double strand breaks (DSBs) repair pathway that maintains genome integrity. However, this pathway may reduce radiotherapy efficacy by repairing DSBs on cancer cells. This research reported a computer-aided drug design (CADD) method to identify novel inhibitors from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that(More)
The innate immune system is the first line in the defense system and prevents the body from further bacteria, virus, or fungal infections. Most of the innate immune system is relevant to mucosa immunity. Lactotransferrin is secreted from the human mammal breast duct epithelial tissue and strengthens infant immunity to defense with regard to outward(More)
