The Os1BGlu4 β-glucosidase is the only glycoside hydrolase family 1 member in rice that is predicted to be localized in the cytoplasm. To characterize the biochemical function of rice Os1BGlu4, the Os1bglu4 cDNA was cloned and used to express a thioredoxin fusion protein in Escherichia coli. After removal of the tag, the purified recombinant Os1BGlu4(More)
Trichostatin A (TSA), a histone deacetylase inhibitor, has been widely used to improve the cloning efficiency in several species. This brings our attention to investigation of the effects of TSA on developmental potential of swamp buffalo cloned embryos. Swamp buffalo cloned embryos were produced by electrical pulse fusion of male swamp buffalo fibroblasts(More)
Methanol limited fed-batch cultivation was applied for production of a plant derived beta-glucosidase by Pichia pastoris. The beta-glucosidase was recovered by expanded bed adsorption chromatography applied to the whole culture broth. The new Streamline Direct HST1 adsorbent was compared with Streamline SP. Higher bead density made it possible to operate at(More)
Immunological sperm sexing is one of the desirable choices to separate X and Y sperm. The basic concept of immunological technique is based on the different proteins on the surface of X and Y sperms. To investigate the sperm surface proteins, proteomic investigation using 2 dimensional gel (2D-gel) electrophoresis technique has been applied. The initial(More)
Articular cartilage is an avascular, alymphatic, and aneural system with very low regeneration potential because of its limited capacity for self-repair. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are the preferred choice for cell-based therapies. Glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK-3) inhibitors are compounds that can induce the Wnt signaling pathway, which is involved in(More)
