Capparis spionosa L. is a traditional medicinal plant in China and central Asia. In this study, an experiment was designed to investigate the optimization of the extraction of anti-tumor polysaccharides from the fruit of Capparis spionosa L. (CSPS) by response surface methodology (RSM). Four independent variables (extraction temperature, extraction time,… (More)
A porous coordination polymer [Cu(3)(btc)(2)] with controllable size and morphology from nanocube to microoctahedron was readily synthesized in an ethanol-water mixture at room temperature by adjusting the concentration of the surfactant and the polymer shows size- and morphology-dependent sorption properties.
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of three blood purification methods on fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23) clearance in patients with hyperphosphatemia undergoing maintenance hemo-dialysis (MHD). In addition, the correlation between serum FGF-23 and phosphorus (Pi) levels and the clinical implications were identified. Sixty‑five… (More)
In this study, an experiment was designed to optimize the synthesis of seleno-Capparis spionosa L. polysaccharide (Se-CSPS) by response surface methodology. Three independent variables (reaction time, reaction temperature and ratio of Na(2)SeO(3) to CSPS) were tested. Furthermore, the thermal stability, particle size, shape and cytotoxic activity of… (More)
