The polymerase chain reaction-single-strand conformation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) technique is developed for the detection of point mutations in DNA samples, and is very useful in the research of tumors. The traditional SSCP was carried out with slab gel electrophoresis (SGE), but this is time-consuming and labor-intensive, particularly for clinical(More)
Apoptosis is a distinct mode of cell death that is responsible for deletion of cells in normal tissues; it also occurs in specific pathologic contexts. The observation of apoptosis is very important in the research of cancer and cancer therapy. The traditional observation method of apoptosis was agarose gel electrophoresis, which is depending on the(More)
A pressurized gradient capillary electrochromatography (pCEC) instrument was developed to separate 18 amino acid derivatives. A reversed-phase C18 column (3 microm, 130 mm x 75 microm I.D.) and an acetate buffer (50 mmol/l NaAc, pH 6.4) with an ion-pair reagent (1% N,N-dimethylformamide) were used to separate derivatized amino acids from a standard solution(More)
Previous findings have indicated that HIV-1 gp41 like human type I interferon (IFN) could inhibit lymphocyte proliferation and up-modulate MHC class I, II and ICAM-1 molecule expression, and a common epitope exists between gp41 and type I interferon (IFN-alpha and -beta) in the receptor binding regions. To clarify the relationship between human type I(More)
In capillary electrophoresis and capillary electrochromatography, the driving factor of the separation is electroosmotic flow (EOF). Pressurized capillary electrochromatography, in which the separation is controlled by EOF as well as the pressure, becomes more and more attractive. We studied the influence of various pressures on capillary(More)
The phospholipid monolayer at an air/water interface is widely used to mimic the biological membrane. The dynamic process of the protein or peptide interacting with lipid molecules can be reflected in the change in surface pressure of the monolayer. But the conventional method used to measure the surface pressure change gives results that cannot easily be(More)
Capillary isoelectric focusing electrophoresis (cIEF) has been developed to detect the genotype of apolipoprotein H, which was purified from the serum of a Chinese subject. Depending upon the observation of splitting peaks in cIEF, it is possible to determine if the protein was expressed from a heterozygote gene.
Based on the separation of 1-palmitoyl-2-(13-hydroperoxy-cis-9,trans-11-octadecadienoyl)-L-3- phosphatidylcholine (PC-OOH) and 1-palmitoyl-2-(13-hydroxy-cis-9,trans-11-octadecadienoyl)-L-3- phosphatidylcholine (PC-OH) and the quantitative determination of PC-OH, the enzymatic activity of phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase (PHGPx) can be(More)
The recombinant sTRAIL has been in clinical trial for various human malignancies. However, the half-life time of sTRAIL is very short, which might be an important factor influencing its clinical efficacy for cancer therapy. We previously reported the recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV)-encoding sTRAIL95–281-mediated sTRAIL expression in vivo up to 8(More)
Apolipoprotein H (ApoH) is a plasma glycoprotein isolated from human serum. It plays a key role in the interaction with lipids. For the first time, the concentration of ApoH adsorbed on the lipid monolayer has been determined, and was done so using capillary electrophoresis. Based on this determination, an interaction model of ApoH and lipid monolayer was(More)
