Glycoproteins often display a complex isoelectric focusing profile because of the presence of negatively charged carbohydrates, such as sialic acid, phosphorylated mannose, and sulfated GalNAc. Until now, understanding the role of these charged carbohydrates in determining the isoelectric focusing profile has been limited to observing pattern shifts(More)
The bisecting GlcNAc is transferred to complex or hybrid N-glycans by the action of N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase III (GlcNAc-TIII) encoded by the Mgat3 gene. CHO cells expressing mouse GlcNAc-TIII were shown by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry to produce mainly complex N-glycans with the predicted extra (bisecting)(More)
To identify factors required for the synthesis of complex glycans, we have isolated Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell mutants resistant to plant lectins. We previously identified Lec19 CHO cells as resistant to the Gal-binding lectins ricin, abrin, and modeccin and hypersensitive to the toxicity of other lectins that bind Gal, including L-PHA and E-PHA.

A simple selective etching process easily removed a 2nd anodized TiO(2) nanotubes (TNTs) layer from a physically stable 1st anodized TNTs layer to produce noncurling, freestanding, large-area aligned doubly open-ended TNTs. These TNTs were easily transferred to a conducting glass for use in fabricating front-illuminated dye sensitized solar cells.
TiO(2) electrodes, sensitized with the N719 dye at high immersion temperatures during the sensitization process, were found to have large fractions of weakly bound N719 on the electrode surface, which resulted in dye aggregation and decreased device longevity. These disadvantages were ameliorated using a low-temperature stearic acid (SA)-assisted anchoring(More)
Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) using organic liquid electrolytes have received significant attention because of their low production cost, simple structure and high power conversion efficiency [1-5]. Recently, the power conversion efficiencies of DSSCs using Ruthenium complex dyes, liquid electrolytes, and Pt counter electrode have reached 10.4 % (100(More)
A novel bis-EDOT-based monomer with ethylene glycol oligomers was synthesized and shown to exhibit strong ion solvation, good transport properties, and effective charge screening. These properties greatly improved J(SC) (4.2 to 7.0 mA cm(-2)) and η (1.6 to 2.9%) in an iodine-free solid state dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) employing a Z-907 sensitizer,(More)
The dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) devices using polymer electrolytes based on electrospun poly(vinylidene fluoride-hexafluoro propylene) (PVDF-HFP) nanofibers were fabricated and investigated the photovoltaic performances. The electrospun PVDF-HFP nanofibers were prepared by various parameters such as; polymer concentrations, applied voltages, and tip to(More)
