Cinnamaldehyde inhibits pro-inflammatory cytokines secretion from monocytes/macrophages through suppression of intracellular signaling.
Low concentration of Cinnamaldehyde inhibited the secretion of interleukin-1beta and tumor necrosis factor alpha within lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or lipoteichoic acid (LTA) stimulated murine J774A.1 macrophages, and the phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 and c-Jun N-terminal kinase1/2 induced by LPS was inhibited by Cinnmaldehyde.

Targeting the delivery of glycan-based paclitaxel prodrugs to cancer cells via glucose transporters.
These glycan-based prodrugs may be good drug candidates for cancer therapy, and the glycan conjugation approach is an alternative method to enhance the targeted delivery of other drugs to cancer cells that overexpress GLUTs. Expand
Enhanced coupling efficiency in solid-phase peptide synthesis by microwave irradiation
Procedures have been developed for increasing coupling efficiency in solid-phase peptide synthesis by microwave irradiation using a kitchen microwave oven
Identification of tumor‐associated plasma biomarkers using proteomic techniques: From mouse to human
The combination of the xenotransplatation model in nude mice and proteomics analysis provided a valuable impact for clinical applications in cancer diagnostics and demonstrated that a panel of APPs might serve as screening biomarkers for early cancer detection. Expand
GeneNetwork: an interactive tool for reconstruction of genetic networks using microarray data
An interactive tool, GeneNetwork, which provides four reverse engineering models and three data interpolation approaches to infer relationships between genes, enables a user to readily reconstruct genetic networks based on microarray data without having intimate knowledge of the mathematical models.

Kinetically controlled peptide bond formation in anhydrous alcohol catalyzed by the industrial protease alcalase
The industrial alkaline protease alcalase has been found to be very stable (half life >5 days in ethanol or 2-methyl-2-propanol) and active in alcoholic solvents (except methanol). Procedures haveExpand
Enhanced enzymatic conversion with freeze pretreatment of rice straw
Production of bioethanol by the conversion of lignocellulosic waste has attracted much interest in recent years, because of its low cost and great potential availability. The pretreatment process isExpand
Polysaccharides of Ganoderma lucidum alter cell immunophenotypic expression and enhance CD56+ NK-cell cytotoxicity in cord blood.
It is found that F3 is not harmful to human cells in vitro, and after F3 treatment, NK-cell-mediated cytotoxicity was significantly enhanced by 31.7% at effector/target cell ratio (E/T) 20:1, but was not altered at E/T 5:1. Expand
Adsorption Studies on the Removal of an Endocrine-Disrupting Compound (Bisphenol A) using Activated Carbon from Rice Straw Agricultural Waste
In this study, we used a two-stage process and potassium hydroxide (KOH) to transform waste biomass (rice straw) into activated carbon and then evaluated the adsorption capacity of the waste forExpand
Proteomic comparative analysis of pathogenic strain 232 and avirulent strain J of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae
It is speculated that the avirulent strain may have developed better capabilities to cope with the rich environment during repeated inoculations and the capability to infect host cells may become less important so that the adhesion-related protein genes are down-regulated. Expand
