The family of antimicrobial peptide, cathelicidins, which plays important roles against infections in animals, has been identified from many species. Here, we identified a novel avian cathelicidin ortholog from ducks and named dCATH. The cDNA sequence of dCATH encodes a predicted 146-amino-acid polypeptide composed of a 17-residue signal peptide, a(More)
Antimicrobial peptides have attracted considerable attention because of their broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity and their low prognostic to induce antibiotic resistance which is the most common source of failure in bacterial infection treatment along with biofilms. The method to design hybrid peptide integrating different functional domains of peptides(More)

This document has proposed an innovation business model, to use crowdsourcing to assist blogs website capturing value. With the concept of crowdsourcing, the paper focuses on innovative business model in three basic functions: market segmentation, value proposition and strategic positioning. This paper reveals the blog content produced by consumer groups,(More)
The review is aimed to explore the clinical and pathogenic spectrum of autoimmune diabetes including Type 1 diabetes and latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA). Genetic susceptibility modifies age at onset in autoimmune diabetes. The most important genetic susceptibility to Type 1 diabetes and LADA is in the HLA region. Because of the age-related(More)
Hybrid peptides integrating different functional domains of peptides have many advantages, such as remarkable antimicrobial activity, lower hemolysis and ideal cell selectivity, compared with natural antimicrobial peptides. FV7 (FRIRVRV-NH₂), a consensus amphiphilic sequence was identified as being analogous to host defense peptides. In this study, we(More)
To generate effective antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) with good antimicrobial activities and cell selectivity, many synthetic strategies have been implemented to facilitate the development of AMPs. However, these synthetic strategies represent only a small proportion of the methods used for the development of AMPs and are not optimal with the requirements(More)
We have developed a robust, nanobiotechnology-based electrochemical cytosensing approach with high sensitivity, selectivity, and reproducibility toward the simultaneous multiplex detection and classification of both acute myeloid leukemia and acute lymphocytic leukemia cells. The construction of the electrochemical cytosensor involves the hierarchical(More)
