Nucleic acid aptamers have long demonstrated the capacity to bind cells with high affinity so that they have been utilized to diagnose various important pathogens. In this study, a DNA aptamer library was on initial efforts developed to act as a specific reporter for rapid detection of enter toxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) K88 combined with… (More)
In this paper, a panel of single-stranded DNA aptamers with high affinity and specificity against Salmonella Paratyphi A was selected from an enriched oligonucleotide pool by a whole-cell-Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SELEX) procedure, during which four other Salmonella serovars were used as counter-selection targets. It was… (More)
In this study, 6-methylenandrosta-4-ene-3,17-dione and Hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD) were used to form a complex, which could be then biotransformed by Arthrobacter simplex ATCC6946 to obtain the antitumor drug exemestane. The complex was analyzed by UV, DSC and TG techniques, while the products were analyzed by HPLC, NMR and MS. These results… (More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis B is a common infectious disease in China. Many studies have shown that the genotype of hepatitis B virus (HBV) is probably associated with the efficacy of some antiviral drugs such as interferon α (IFN-α) and Lamivudine (LAM). However, the association between HBV genotype and adefovir dipivoxil (ADV) is controversial. ADV is the most… (More)
A mild and efficient Delta(1)-dehydrogenation of Delta(4)-3-keto-steroids with DDQ in the presence of tertbutyldimethylchlorosilane at room temperature was developed.
