Diversity of Medicinal and Food Plants as Non-timber Forest Products in Naban River Watershed National Nature Reserve (China): Implications for Livelihood Improvement and Biodiversity Conservation. Non-timber forest products (NTFPs) play an important role in rural livelihoods. People living in and around forests are dependent on a variety of NTFPs for their(More)
A series of novel coumarin derivatives containing 4,5-dihydropyrazole moiety as potential telomerase inhibitors were synthesized. The bioassay tests show that compound 3d exhibited potentially high activity against human gastric cancer cell SGC-7901 with IC(50) value of 2.69 ± 0.60 μg/mL. All title compounds were assayed for telomerase inhibition by a(More)
Carabid beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae) have widely been used to assess biodiversity values of different habitats in cultivated landscapes, but rarely in the humid tropics. This study aimed to investigate effects of land use change on the carabid assemblages in a tributary valley of the Mekong River in tropical southern Yunnan, China. The study area(More)
A series of novel N-phenylacetyl (sulfonyl) 4,5-dihydropyrazole derivatives as potential telomerase inhibitors were synthesized. The bioassay tests show that compound 4a exhibited high activity against human gastric cancer cell SGC-7901, liver cancer Hep-G2 and human prostate PC-3 cell lines with IC(50) values of 21.23±0.99, 29.43±0.32 and 30.89±1.07 μM,(More)
A novel pH-responsive coating technique was developed and applied to CE successfully in this paper. The coating was formed by bonding mixed opposite charge poly(acrylic acid) and poly(2-vinylpyridine) randomly onto the inner wall of a silica capillary. The coating processes were first characterized by ellipsometry and atomic force microscopy at macroscale(More)
Analytical technologies that enable investigations at the single cell level facilitate a range of studies; here a lab-fabricated capillary electrophoresis-electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (CE-ESI-MS) platform was used to analyze anionic metabolites from individual Aplysia californica neurons. The system employs a customized coaxial sheath-flow(More)
Field experiments on Leea glabra in its natural forest habitat of southern Yunnan, China were conducted to study the effects of artificial damage of young and old leaves on extrafloral nectaries (EFNs) secretion quantity and sugar concentration, as well as the effects on ant abundance on the plants following the damage treatments. We found there were no(More)
Binding interactions between symmetrical α,α',δ,δ'-tetramethylcucurbit[6]uril (TMeQ[6]) and a series of alkyldiammonium ions in aqueous solution and in the solid state were investigated by (1)H NMR spectroscopy, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, X-ray crystallography, and isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC). Their (1)H NMR spectra reveal that the actual(More)
The binding interaction between inverted cucurbit[6]uril (iQ[6]) and p-phenylenediaminium both in the solid state and in aqueous solution has been investigated by X-ray crystallography, (1)H NMR spectroscopy and isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC). The experimental results suggest that the binding interaction between iQ[6] and p-phenylenediaminium may(More)
The reaction of cucurbit[6]uril with Cu(NO3)2 and CuCl2, respectively, generates a 1D zigzag chain of {[Cu(H2O)4(cucurbit[6]uril)].(NO3)2.(H2O)8}n and a 1D tubular structure of {[Cu(H2O)2(Cl)2(cucurbit[6]uril)](1/3).(H2O)3}n, showing clearly how to control the reversible and mutual interconnections between ligand and metal ion under the guide of(More)
