Glutamate-induced excitotoxicity and oxidative damage are believed to play an important role in the development of a number of central nerve system disorders. Nuclear-factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) is a master transcriptional regulator of many cytoprotective genes.We report herein that 5,6-dihydrocyclopenta-1,2-dithiole-3-thione (CPDT), which(More)
Applications of lipases are mainly based on their catalytic efficiency and substrate specificity. In this study, circular permutation (CP), an unconventional protein engineering technique, was employed to acquire active mutants of Yarrowia lipolytica lipase Lip8p. A total of 21 mutant lipases exhibited significant shifts in substrate specificity. Cp128, the(More)
Sulfur, as a macronutrient, is essential for all kinds of organisms. Sulfate, the primary available source of sulfur, is firstly activated by adenylation catalyzed by ATP sulfurylase (ATPS) to form adenosine 5′-phosphosulfate (APS), which will be further phosphorylated into 3′-phosphoadenosine 5′-phosphosulfate (PAPS) by APS kinase (APSK). In some(More)
Efficient photosynthesis is critical for plant survival and growth. When plant-absorbed light exceeds the overall rate of energy conversion, it will trigger photooxidation. In this study, we selected a photooxidation mutant 812HS, it was isolated from the progeny of japonica rice (Oryza sativa L.) 812S and shows leaf yellowing and hypersensitive to(More)
