Optimization of conditions for the production of pullulan and high molecular weight pullulan by Aureobasidium pullulans
TLDR
Aureobasidium pullulans had a maximum yield coefficient of pullulan (Yp/s=0.24) with an initial pH of the culture broth of 6.5 in a shake-flask culture and a high portion (35%) of high molecular weightpullulan was produced at pH 6.
Antitumor activity of Pulsatilla koreana saponins and their structure-activity relationship.
TLDR
Two saponins isolated from the root of Pulsatilla koreana were examined for their in vitro cytotoxic activity against the human solid cancer cell lines and in vivo antitumor activity, suggesting that the two elements are essential factors for the antitumors activity.

TLDR
Three fungi exhibited the highest concentrations for most sampling periods of the ACs and heater, and the use of automobile heaters and household humidifiers could suppress in-vehicle and in-room microbial concentrations.
Anti-Inflammatory Cycloartane-Type Saponins of Astragalus membranaceus
TLDR
A new cycloartane-type triterpene glycoside, agroastragaloside V, was isolated from the roots of Astragalus membranaceus and tested for the ability to inhibit LPS-induced nitric oxide production in RAW264.7 macrophages.
Purification and characterization of ginsenoside Ra-hydrolyzing beta-D-xylosidase from Bifidobacterium breve K-110, a human intestinal anaerobic bacterium.
TLDR
Findings suggest that this is the first reported purification of ginsenoside-hydrolyzing beta-D-xylosidase from an anaerobic Bifidobacterium sp.
Development of a heat labile antibiotic eluting 3D printed scaffold for the treatment of osteomyelitis
TLDR
A rifampicin-releasing 3D scaffold for the treatment of osteomyelitis is developed using 3D printing and polycaprolactone (PCL), a biodegradable polymer that can be printed at low temperatures.
Successful Conservative Management of Ruptured Ovarian Cysts with Hemoperitoneum in Healthy Women
TLDR
Most cases of ruptured ovarian cysts with hemoperitoneum can be managed conservatively, and a low diastolic blood pressure and a large amount of hem operitoneum suggest the need for surgical intervention.
