Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) induces cell death in various types of cancer cells but has little or no effects on normal cells. Unfortunately, not all cancer cells respond to TRAIL; therefore, TRAIL sensitizing agents are currently being explored. Here, we reported that(More)
By combining computational design and site-directed mutagenesis, we have engineered a new catalytic ability into the antibody scFv2F3 by installing a catalytic triad (Trp29–Sec52–Gln72). The resulting abzyme, Se-scFv2F3, exhibits a high glutathione peroxidase (GPx) activity, approaching the native enzyme activity. Activity assays and a systematic(More)
Cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus are prominent features of glucose and lipid metabolism disorders. Adiponectin is a key adipokine that is largely involved in glucose and lipid metabolism processes. A growing body of evidence suggests that chronic exposure to inorganic arsenic is associated with cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus. We(More)
A novel guest biomimetic glutathione peroxidase(3,3′-tellurobis(propane-3,1-diyl) diadamantanecarboxylate, denoted as ADA-Te-ADA) was synthesized. ADA-Te-ADA functioned to overcome the disadvantages in the construction of building block for giant supramolecular biomimetic enzyme. To reveal the catalytic property of hydrophobic ADA-Te-ADA, the catalytic(More)
(China) under the co-supervision of Professors Rene Buchet and Yuqing Wu. I would like to thank them for their extraordinary guidance and encouragement during the research process. I wish to thank the following people who have been a valuable source of information and inspiration and who helped me in various ways through teaching, discussions and assistance(More)
