We have previously reported that a well-characterized glycoprotein fraction containing fucose residues in an extract of Ganoderma lucidum polysaccharides (EORP) exerts certain immuno-modulation activity by stimulating the expression of inflammatory cytokines via TLR4. Continuing our studies, we have demonstrated that EORP increases the surface expression of(More)
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide and is often diagnosed in the advanced or late stages. The discovery of candidate biomarkers in human lung cancer materials holds clinical potential as well as a significant challenge. Due to a large number of proteins in human materials that form the protein complexity and post-translational(More)
Methionine adenosyltransferase (MAT) is the cellular enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM), the principal biological methyl donor and a key regulator of hepatocyte proliferation, death and differentiation. Two genes, MAT1A and MAT2A, encode 2 distinct catalytic MAT isoforms. A third gene, MAT2B, encodes a MAT2A regulatory(More)
UNLABELLED Inferring genetic network architecture from time series data generated from high-throughput experimental technologies, such as cDNA microarray, can help us to understand the system behavior of living organisms. We have developed an interactive tool, GeneNetwork, which provides four reverse engineering models and three data interpolation(More)
We have previously shown that the alternative sigma factor sigmaE (RpoE), encoded by rpoE, is involved in stress tolerance and survival of Burkholderia pseudomallei. However, its molecular and pathogenic mechanisms remain unclear. In the present study, we applied gel-based, differential proteomics to compare the cellular proteome of an rpoE operon knockout(More)
Burkholderia pseudomallei is a saprophyte found in soil and water. It is a difficult microorganism to kill and can survive in these environments for many years. Mechanisms for its adaptive response to environmental changes remain largely unknown. We performed a proteomics study to examine alterations in secreted proteins (secretome) under a salt stress(More)
Thermophilic bacterium Bacillus stearothermophilus TLS33, isolated from a hot spring in Chiang Mai, Thailand, usually produces many enzymes that are very useful for industrial applications. However, the functional properties and mechanisms of this bacterium under stress conditions are rarely reported and still need more understanding on how the bacterium(More)
BACKGROUND Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) can involve MHC-restricted presentation of a drug or its metabolites for T-cell activation. HLA-B(*)1502 tightly associated with carbamazepine (CBZ) induced these conditions in a Han Chinese population. OBJECTIVE We sought to identify HLA-B(*)1502-bound peptides that might be(More)
Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) and dengue shock syndrome (DSS) are the most severe forms of dengue virus infection with hemorrhage and plasma leakage. However, pathogenic mechanisms of DHF and DSS remain poorly understood. We therefore investigated host responses as determined by changes in the cellular proteome of primary human endothelial cells upon(More)
A fucose-containing glycoprotein fraction which stimulates spleen cell proliferation and cytokine expression has been identified from the water-soluble extract of Ganoderma lucidum. Proteomic analysis of mouse spleen cells treated with this glycoprotein fraction showed approximately 50% change of the proteome. Further studies on the activities of this(More)
