Bacterial laccases are ideal alternatives of fungal laccases for specific industrial applications due to specific characteristics such as alkalescence dependence and high chloride tolerance. However, some bacterial laccases presented as inclusion bodies when expressing in Escherichia coli and showed thermal instability. In this study, rational design was(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of Rehmannia glutinosa oligosaccharides (ROS) on the proliferation of HepG2 and insulin resistance. METHOD The HepG2 cells were divided into control group, rosiglitazone (3.4 mg x L(-1)) treated group and ROS (0.1-30 mg x L(-1)) treated group. The proliferation of HepG2 was detected by MTT method. Insulin resistant(More)
β-Glucosidases are enzymes that hydrolyze β-glycosidic bonds to release non-reducing terminal glucosyl residues from glycosides and oligosaccharides, and thus have significant application potential in industries. However, most β-glucosidases are feedback inhibited by the glucose product, which restricts their application. Remarkably, some β-glucosidases of(More)
The selective cleavage of proteins is very important in key biological processes. Chemical (nonenzymatic) reagents such as cyanogen bromide and transition metal complexes are used extensively with great defects. In this paper, the binding of seryl-histidine dipeptide (abbreviated as SH) with bovine serum albumin (BSA) and lysozyme were investigated by the(More)
BACKGROUND Although there are still some unresolved aspects, current research has revealed that vascular cell proliferation probably plays an important part in the pathological formation process of cerebral vasospasm. Using a "two-hemorrhage" model of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), this study investigated the function of ERK1/2 and vascular wall cell(More)
Currently, there are considerable discrepancies between China's central government and some local governments in attitudes towards coal to liquids (CTL) technology. Energy return on investment (EROI) analysis of CTL could provide new insights that may help solve this dilemma. Unfortunately, there has been little research on this topic; this paper therefore(More)
Pancreatic cancer remains the fourth most common cause of cancer-related death in the United States. Potent therapeutic strategies are urgently needed for pancreatic cancer. Cucurmosin is a novel type 1 ribosome-inactivating protein (RIP) isolated from the sarcocarp of Cucurbita moschata (pumpkin). Due to its (More)
For the first time, we demonstrated that Tf2O mediated direct dehydrative glycosylation was possible simply with strained olefins, and other typical bases were inhibitors of this reaction. We optimized the glycosylation conditions and found that typical benzyl protected 1-OH pyranosyl donors and certain alcohol acceptors were suitable for our glycosylation(More)
BACKGROUND Pancreatic cancer treatment is limited and effective drugs are needed. We investigated cucurmosin (CUS)-induced apoptosis in cystic fibrosis pancreatic adenocarcinoma cells (CFPAC-1) and a possible mechanism of action to evaluate the clinical application potential of this new Type I ribosome-inactivating protein. METHODS We analyzed the growth(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the inhibition of PANC-1 pancreatic cancer cell growth by cucurmosin (CUS) and its possible mechanism. METHODS We observed the inhibition of PANC-1 cell growth by sulforhodamine B and colony-forming experiments in vitro and established nonobese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficiency mouse subcutaneous tumor models in vivo. We(More)
