The effect of ammonia on Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cell growth and galactosylation of recombinant immunoglobulin (rIgG) was investigated using shaking flasks with serum free media containing 0–15 mM NH4Cl. The elevated ammonia inhibited cell growth and negatively affected the galactosylation of rIgG. At 15 mM NH4Cl, the proportions of monogalactosylated(More)
We have previously isolated a novel protein "B/K" that contains two C2-like domains. Here, we report the isolation and mRNA distribution of a human B/K isoform, and protein kinase A (PKA)-dependent phosphorylation of the B/K protein. The 1.5 kb human B/K cDNA clone exhibits 89% and 97% identities with rat B/K in the sequences of nucleotide and amino acid,(More)
Quercetin 3-O-beta-(2''-galloyl)-rhamnopyranoside (QGR) is a naturally occurring quercitrin gallate, a polyphenolic compound isolated from Persicaria lapathifolia (Polygonaceae). In the present study, QGR compound was discovered to have inhibitory effect on nitric oxide (NO) production in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated macrophages RAW 264.7. QGR(More)
In this study, we present a facile means of fabricating graphene thin films via layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly of charged graphene nanosheets (GS) based on electrostatic interactions. To this end, graphite oxide (GO) obtained from graphite powder using Hummers method is chemically reduced to carboxylic acid-functionalized GS and amine-functionalized GS to(More)
Many factors appear to influence the chance of acquiring Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) infection, and an accurate identification of risk factors could be beneficial in many ways. Thus, in the present study, clinical risk factors for C. difficile-associated disease (CDAD) in Korea were identified. A total of 93 patients who met the inclusion criteria(More)
A biosensor chip utilizing surface plasmon resonance (SPR) was fabricated for detecting anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) antibody, which is an indicator of the presence of type I diabetes mellitus. The sensor surfaces were constructed from various thiol mixtures of different molar ratios of 3-mercaptopropionic acid (3-MPA) to 11-mercaptoundecanoic(More)
An air-stable transparent conductive film with "quasi-freestanding" graphene supported on horizontal single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) arrays is fabricated. The sheet resistance of graphene films stacked via layer-by-layer transfer (LBL) on quartz, and modified by 1-Pyrenebutyric acid N-hydroxysuccinimide ester (PBASE), is reduced from 273 Ω/sq to(More)
The performance of quantum dot light-emitting diodes (QD-LEDs) was investigated for different hole transport layers with small molecules and polymers: poly(4-butyl-phenyl-diphenyl-amine), poly-N-vinylcarbazole (PVK), N,N'-diphenyl-N,N'-bis(3-methylphenyl)-1,1'-diphenyl-4,4'-diamine, 4,4',4″-tris(N-carbazolyl)-triphenyl-amine (TCTA), and(More)
Preventing reactive gas species such as oxygen or water is important to ensure the stability and durability of organic electronics. Although inorganic materials have been predominantly employed as the protective layers, their poor mechanical property has hindered the practical application to flexible electronics. The densely packed hexagonal lattice of(More)
