Transmission of Helicobacter pylori infection via flexible fiberoptic endoscopy.
H. pylori is readily killed by many common disinfectants and antiseptics, however, practices for disinfection of flexible fiberoptic endoscope were not appropriate. Expand
Inhibition of Hyaluronidases and Chondroitinases by Fatty Acids
The inhibitory effects of various fatty acids on three hyaluronidases and four chondroitinases were examined, and their structure-activity relationships and mechanism of action were studied. Expand
Biodegradation of Endocrine-Disrupting Chemical Aniline by Microorganisms
Two pure cultures (strains No. A-11 and A-12) from soil sample capable of utilizing aniline as the sole source of nitrogen and energy were regarded as Achromobacter sp and Pseudomonas sp,Expand
A new antiherpetic agent, AH-135Y, produced by Streptomyces albovinaceus strain No. AH-135.
Anti-herpes virus activity of Solanum steroidal glycosides.
Anti-herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) activity of typical steroidal glycosides with the frameworks of spirostane (including nuatigenin glycoside), furostane, solasodane, tomatidane and ergostane obtained from Solanum plants was examined. Expand
Enhanced reporter gene expression in cells transfected in the presence of DMI-2, an acid nuclease inhibitor
The hypothesis that nuclease action is a significant barrier to expression of foreign genes and inhibition of specific nucleases may facilitate transfection is supported. Expand
Partial Amino Acid Sequence of an Alkaline Protease Inhibitor, API-2 (b and c)
API-2b and API-2c (alkaline protease inhibitors) were directly subjected to Edman degradation. It was elucidated that API-2C was lacking in Ala-Pro-Ser-Leu-Gly-Ala located in the NH2-terminal regionExpand
Anti-herpes virus type 1 activity of oleanane-type triterpenoids.
The anti-herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) activity of 15 oleanan-type triterpenoides including glycyrrhizin and its sapogenol was examined and their structure-activity relationships wereExpand
A new lignan glycoside and phenylethanoid glycosides from Strobilanthes cusia BREMEK.
Lupeol showed anti-HSV-1 activity and showed 100% inhibition of virus plaque formation at 58.7 microM, and two new phenylethanoid glycosides were found together with five known compounds as chemical constituents of Strobilanthes cusia root. Expand
