Lignans, which are widely distributed in higher plants, represent a vast and rather diverse group of phenylpropane derivatives. They have attracted considerable attention due to their pharmacological activities. Some of the lignans have been developed approved therapeutics, and others are considered as lead structures for new drugs. This article is based on(More)
In the study area (Yanjiaping Village, Hebei Province, China), grazing extensity varies at different locations, small and discontinuous croplands are imbedded in some arid grassland, which are habitats for the melitaeine butterflies, Euphydryas aurinia and Melitaea phoebe. These two species of butterflies coexist in this area, in which grazing and(More)
Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is the dominant type of esophageal cancer in the East Asian population. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been studied to play important roles in tumorigenesis. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in miRNA lead to the aberrant expression and structural alteration of miRNA and are hypothesized to be involved in(More)
A new mathematical model and frontal analysis were used to characterize the binding behavior of caffeic acid to human serum albumin (HSA) based on high-performance affinity chromatography. The experiments were carried out by injecting various mole amounts of the drug onto an immobilized HSA column. They indicated that caffeic acid has only one type of(More)
Affinity chromatography is the most widespread and widely accepted methodology for exploring drug-protein and protein-protein interactions. Despite the successful application of frontal analysis and zonal elution in affinity chromatography, research into the creation of new mathematical tools for data processing is encouraged due to these two methods'(More)
Telomeres are important multifunctional nucleoprotein structures located at the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes. Telomerase regulates telomere elongation, and its activity is associated with tumorigenesis. Because the activity of telomerase can be inhibited by G-quadruplex (G4) formation (a four-stranded DNA with stacks of G-quartets formed by four guanines(More)
