Polystyrene electrospun optical fibrous membrane (EOF) was fabricated using a one-step electrospinning technique, functionalized with glucose oxidases (GOD/EOF), and used as a quick and highly sensitive optical biosensor. Because of the doped iridium complex, the fibrous membrane emitted yellow luminescence (562 nm) when excited at 405 nm. Its luminescence(More)
Dendritic cells (DCs) play important roles in the regulation of immune system, which link innate and adaptive immune responses. Mature DCs produced interleukin (IL)-12 promote optimal type 1 T helper (Th1) cells and cytotoxic T lymphocytes. The extracts of traditional herbal medicines have been shown to enhance immune responses through promoting the(More)
Ruthenium nanoparticle tris(2,2'-bipyridyl)ruthenium(II) bis(hexafluorophosphate) (Ru(bpy)3(PF6)2, RuNP) was self-assembled on polystyrene (PS) electrospun microfibers. The formation of RuNP is attributed to the sulfonated PS (SPS) microfibers' high adsorptive capability of 94% for Ru(bpy)3(2+), as well as the strong interaction between the Ru(bpy)3(2+) and(More)
In this article, a bare glassy carbon electrode (GCE) surface was directly activated by a simple in situ chemical method, which was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and cyclic voltammetry (CV), differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) and electrochemical impedance(More)
Objective To construct a DNA contraception vaccine targeting canine zona pellucida 3 (CZP3) antigen and assess the immunological efficacy and contraceptive effect of the vaccine. Methods The CZP3 gene was amplified from total RNA of canine ovary by reverse transcription PCR and analyzed by bioinformatics, such as ProtScale, TMHMM, Signal P, InterProScan,(More)
Cistanche tubulosa phenylethanoid glycosides (CTPG) have been shown various biological activities including anti-allergy, hepatoprotective activity and bone regeneration. However, the anti-tumor activity of CTPG needs to be investigated. CTPG was used to treat B16-F10 cells both in vitro and in vivo. We found that CTPG dramatically changed the morphology of(More)
Our previous study reported that the combination of Pleurotus ferulae water extract (PFWE) and CpG (PFWE+CpG) enhanced the maturation and function of dendritic cells (DCs). Here, we investigated the effects of PFWE+CpG on the immune responses and antitumor efficacy of DC-based vaccine. We observed that all of HPV E6 and E7 peptides pulsed DCs (HPV-immature(More)
