Impact of plant products on innate and adaptive immune system of cultured finfish and shellfish
Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing food-producing sectors around the world. Among various kinds of cultivated organisms many marine and freshwater finfish and shellfish species constitute anExpand
Solubilization of insoluble inorganic phosphates by a novel salt- and pH-tolerant Pantoea agglomerans R-42 isolated from soybean rhizosphere.
To develop environment-friendly biofertilizer solubilizing insoluble phosphates, salt- and pH-tolerant, insoluble inorganic phosphate-solubilizing bacterium was isolated from soybean rhizosphere. OnExpand
Optimization of fermentation conditions for the production of bacterial cellulose by a newly isolated Acetobacter
The optimum fermentation conditions for the production of cellulose by a newly isolated Acetobacter sp. A9 were determined by shaken cultures. The strain was able to produce cellulose at 25–30 °CExpand
Loktanella pyoseonensis sp. nov., isolated from beach sand, and emended description of the genus Loktanella.
A novel Gram-stain-negative, aerobic, heterotrophic, obligately halophilic bacterium, designated strain JJM85(T), was isolated from beach sand in Jeju, Republic of Korea. Cells were rod-shaped andExpand
Bee venom and melittin reduce proinflammatory mediators in lipopolysaccharide-stimulated BV2 microglia.
Bee venom (BV), well known as a traditional Oriental medicine, has been shown to exhibit anti-arthritic and anti-carcinogenic effects. However, the molecular mechanisms responsible for theExpand
Key regulators in bee venom-induced apoptosis are Bcl-2 and caspase-3 in human leukemic U937 cells through downregulation of ERK and Akt.
Bee venom (BV) has been known to inhibit proliferation and induce apoptosis in cancer cells. However, the molecular mechanisms involved in BV-induced apoptosis are still uncharacterized in humanExpand
Reactive oxygen species scavenging, metal chelation, reducing power and lipid peroxidation inhibition properties of different solvent fractions from Hizikia fusiformis
The antioxidative properties of different organic and aqueous fractions obtained by solvent fractionation of 80% methanolic extract of Hizikia fusiformis were investigated for free-radical, reactiveExpand
Antioxidant activities of phlorotannins purified from Ecklonia cava on free radical scavenging using ESR and H2O2-mediated DNA damage
The potential antioxidant activities of three phlorotannins (phloroglucinol, eckol and dieckol) purified from Ecklonia cava collected in Jeju Island were investigated to evaluate their potentialExpand
Molecular studies, disease status and prophylactic measures in grouper aquaculture: Economic importance, diseases and immunology
Groupers are potentially important and economically valuable aquaculture species in Southeast Asian countries. Among sport and artisanal fishers is a prized catch demanding lucrative price. GroupersExpand
Effect of probiotics enriched diet on Paralichthys olivaceus infected with lymphocystis disease virus (LCDV).
We report the effect of two probiotics, Lactobacil and Sporolac as separate or mixed diets on innate immune mechanisms, such as phagocytosis activity, superoxide anion production of blood leukocytes,Expand
