The first continuous cell line from the embryo of Gampsocleis gratiosa (Orthoptera: Tettigoniidae), designated as RIRI-GG1, was established. This cell line was serially subcultured in modified Grace medium. The cells were grown adherent to a culture flask and had spindle-like and polygonal shapes. The chromosome number ranged from 26 to 79 at the 50th(More)
The cell line RIRI-PX1 was established from neonate larval tissues of Papilio xuthus by performing primary cultures in the modified Grace medium that was supplemented with 20% fetal bovine serum (FBS). The cell line primarily consisted of spindle-shaped and spherical cells which attached themselves to the flask. The population-doubling times (PDTs) at the(More)
A new cell line named RIRI-PaDe, developed from the neonate larvae of Papilio demoleus Linnaeus, was established in modified Grace’s medium supplemented with 20% fetal bovine serum. The cell line was incubated at 28°C and consisted of attached round and short spindle-like cells. The population doubling time was 55 h. The chromosome numbers varied widely(More)
White wax (WW) has been traditionally used to treat hair loss in China. However there has been no reporter WW and its extract responsible for hair growth-promoting effect on androgenetic alopecia. In this paper, we examined the hair growth-promoting effects of WW and policosanol of white wax (WWP) on model animal of androgenetic alopecia and the potential(More)
A new method has been developed for the determination of DNA by resonance light scattering with dodecyl dimethyl betaine (BS-12) in aqueous solution as a new probe. At pH 9.3, the interactions of BS-12 and DNA gave strong RLS signals at 388.0 nm. Linear relationships were found between the enhanced intensity of RLS and the concentration of DNAs in the range(More)
The first continuous cell line from the neonate larval tissues of Blaps rhynchoptera, which has been used as a folk medicine in Yunnan Province, China, was established and designated RIRI-BR1. This cell line was serially subcultured in Schneider’s medium supplemented with 15% fetal bovine serum (FBS). The cells grew adherent to culture flasks and exhibited(More)
The use of edible insects has a long history in China, where they have been consumed for more than 2000 years. In general, the level of acceptance is high for the consumption of insects in China. Many studies on edible insects have been conducted in the last 20 years, and the scope of the research includes the culture of entomophagy and the identification,(More)
