Recent oxidation events on monoclonal antibody candidates prompted us to investigate the mechanism of oxidation of Met, Trp, and His residues and to search for suitable stabilizers. By using parathyroid hormone (1-34), PTH, as a model protein and various oxidants, aided by liquid chromatography, peptide mapping, and mass spectrometry, we identified and(More)
To study the acute effect of dietary docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, C22:6) on the expression of adipocyte determination and differentiation-dependent factor 1 (ADD1) mRNA in pig tissues, weaned, crossbred pigs (28 d of age) were fed with either 10% (on as-fed basis) tallow (high stearic acid), soybean oil (high linoleic acid), or high DHA algal oil for 2 d. The(More)
The goal of this study was to investigate the possible therapy mechanism of triterpene acids of Eriobotrya japonica (Thunb.) Lindl. Leaf (TAL) in alveolar macrophage (AM) of chronic bronchitis (CB) rats. CB model was established by injection of bacillus calmette guein (BCG) plus lipopolisacharide (LPS) in rats. TAL significantly inhibited the increased NO(More)
Adiponectin is an adipocyte-derived hormone that can improve insulin sensitivity. Its functions in regulating glucose utilization and fatty acid metabolism in mammals are mediated by 2 subtypes of adiponectin receptors (AdipoR1 and AdipoR2). This study was conducted to determine the effect of fasting on the expression of adiponectin and its receptors. The(More)
A method based on solid-phase microextraction and gas chromatography flame photometric detector for the determination of organophosphorous pesticides (OPPs) in aqueous samples was described. Five kinds of commercially available fibers-7, 30 and 100 mum PDMS, 85 mum PA and 65 mum PDMS-DVB-were compared and 100 mum PDMS and 85 mum PA were the most sensitive(More)
A series of soft magnetic FeCoSiO films was fabricated on Si (100) substrates using Cu as the underlayer by radio frequency magnetron sputtering. The influence of Cu underlayers on the dynamic magnetic properties of FeCoSiO thin films was studied in detail. The results show that the Cu underlayers have a significant influence on the high-frequency(More)
An approach for screening and identification of various components in a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), using a combination of LC/TOF-MS technique was described in this paper. The chemical profile of Thalictrum fortunei, well-known in TCM, was studied using the established method. The possibilities of screening and identifying non-target components(More)
Six compounds were isolated from Rosa laevigata. Five of them were obtained from the ethanolic extract and identified as 2 alpha, 3 beta, 19 alpha, 23-tetrahydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid, 2 alpha, 3 alpha, 19 alpha, 23-tetrahydroxyurs-12-en-28-oic acid, euscaphic acid, beta-sitosterol and daucosterol. The other one was obtained from the acetate of emulsive(More)
U2 small nuclear RNA auxiliary factor 2 (U2AF2) is an important gene for pre-messenger RNA splicing in higher eukaryotes. In this study, the Banna mini-pig inbred line (BMI) U2AF2 coding sequence (CDS) was cloned, sequenced, and characterized. The U2AF2 complete CDS was amplified using the reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) technique(More)
