Sequence of mammalian fossils, including hominoid teeth, from the Bubing Basin caves, South China.
A Plio-Pleistocene to Holocene faunal sequence has been recovered from four carefully excavated caves in the Bubing Basin, adjacent to the larger Bose Basin of South China. The caves vary inExpand

Activity of alpha- and theta-defensins against primary isolates of HIV-1.
Theta-defensins are lectin-like, cyclic octadecapeptides found in the leukocytes of nonhuman primates. They are also homologues of the more familiar alpha-defensins expressed by humans and certainExpand

Retrocyclin, an antiretroviral theta-defensin, is a lectin.
Theta-defensins are circular octadecapeptides that contain an internal tridisulfide ladder. Because retrocyclin-1, an ancestral hominid theta-defensin, can protect human cells in vitro from infectionExpand

The acidic activator GAL4-AH can stimulate polymerase II transcription by promoting assembly of a closed complex requiring TFIID and TFIIA.
The assembly of activated RNA polymerase II (pol II) transcription complexes has been investigated by assaying whether pre-assembly of intermediate complexes reduces the extended time required forExpand

SMAP-29 has two LPS-binding sites and a central hinge.
The CD spectra of SMAP-29, an antimicrobial peptide from sheep, showed disordered structure in aqueous buffers, and significant helicity in membrane-like environments, including SDS micelles,Expand

Identification of polysaccharides from pericarp tissues of litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) fruit in relation to their antioxidant activities.
A large number of polysaccharides are present in the pericarp tissues of harvested litchi fruits. A DEAE Sepharose fast-flow anion-exchange column and a Sephadex G-50 gel-permeation column were usedExpand

Lipophilicity influence on conjunctival drug penetration in the pigmented rabbit: a comparison with corneal penetration.
The influence of lipophilicity on the conjunctival penetration of beta blockers in the pigmented rabbit was investigated and compared with that on corneal penetration. The beta blockers wereExpand

Polymerase II promoter activation: closed complex formation and ATP-driven start site opening.
Studies on bacterial RNA polymerases have divided the initiation pathway into three steps, namely (i) promoter binding to form the closed complex; (ii) DNA melting to form an open complex, and (iii)Expand
