In this work, fluorescence spectroscopy in combination with circular dichroism spectroscopy and molecular modeling was employed to investigate the binding of 10-hydroxycamptothecin (HCPT) to human serum albumin (HSA) under simulative physiological conditions. The experiment results showed that the fluorescence quenching of HSA by HCPT was a result of the(More)
Mitochondrial dysfunction is considered as a crucial mechanism of nanomaterial toxicity. Herein, we investigated the effects of polyhydroxylated fullerene (C60(OH)44, fullerenol), a model carbon-based nanomaterial with high water solubility, on isolated mitochondria. Our study demonstrated that fullerenol enhanced the permeabilization of mitochondrial inner(More)
BACKGROUND Perforin gene (PRF1) mutations have been reported in patients with lymphoma, but the prevalence and characteristics of PRF1 mutation have not been identified in Chinese patients with lymphoma. METHODS Seventy-seven patients with lymphoma, including 6 patients with Hodgkin lymphoma and 71 patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, were recruited. DNA(More)
The interactions between quantum dots (QDs) and biological systems have attracted increasing attention due to concerns on possible toxicity of the nanoscale materials. The biological effects of CdSe QDs and CdSe/ZnS QDs with nearly identical hydrodynamic size on Saccharomyces cerevisiae were investigated via microcalorimetric, spectroscopic and microscopic(More)
A novel dumbbell-shaped ZnO photocatalyst was successfully synthesized by microwave heating in the present study. The prepared ZnO photocatalysts were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and UV-Vis absorption spectrum (UV-Vis). The results indicated that the prepared ZnO photocatalyst shows a united dumbbell shape(More)
Mitochondria have recently emerged as novel targets for cancer therapy due to its important roles in fundamental cellular function. Discovery of new chemotherapeutic agents that allow for simultaneous treatment and visualization of cancer is urgent. Herein, we demonstrate a novel bifunctional mitochondria-targeted anticancer agent (FPB), exhibiting both(More)
OBJECTIVE To shorten the duration of seed germinating, improve seed emergence and eventurally to establish a practical method for seeding of Paris polyphylla var. yunnanensis seed. METHOD To study the effect of some factors (temperature, sowing time, covering-soil depth, plastic film ) on seed emergence of P. polyphylla var. yunnanensis. RESULT The most(More)
Oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) is one of the most common cancers worldwide and the 5 years survival rate of the patients is about 60% in the USA, due to acquired chemotherapeutic resistance and metastasis of the disease. In this study, we found that tivantinib, a selective MET inhibitor, suppresses OCSS cell proliferation and colony formation, however,(More)
Cryptotanshinone, a natural compound isolated from the roots of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bge (Danshen), has been found to induce cancer cells apoptosis and impair cell migration and invasion in various malignancies, but its antiproliferation and chemosensitization effects of Cryptotanshinone on tongue squamous cell carcinoma(TSCC)still remain fully elucidated.(More)
Although cation exchange (CE) has been studied for many years and some mechanisms were proposed, there is still a knowledge gap in CE and problems such as the need for high temperature and it being time-consuming are still unaddressed. We developed a new mild strategy for CE by introducing a new ideal template and first applied this doping strategy to(More)
