BACKGROUND A greater reduction in cancer risk associated with mushroom diet rich in fungus polysaccharides is generally accepted. Meanwhile, edible Pleurotus abalonus as a member of Abalone mushroom family is a popular nutritional supplement that purportedly prevents cancer occurrence. However, these anecdotal claims are supported by limited studies(More)
This study was designed to investigate the antioxidant activity, hepatoprotective effect, and phenolic composition of the ethyl acetate fraction (EAF) extracted from Houttuynia cordata tea. EAF was shown to exhibit strong ferric-reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) and scavenging activity against DPPH radical in vitro, and the antioxidant effects were further(More)
This paper proposes a novel extended-single-phase shift (ESPS) control strategy of isolated bidirectional full-bridge DC-DC converters (IBDCs) which are a promising alternative as a power electronic interface in microgrids with an additional function of galvanic isolation. Based on the mathematical models of ESPS control under steady-state conditions,(More)
The degenerate primer-based sequencing was developed by a synthesis method (DP-SBS) for high-throughput DNA sequencing, in which a set of degenerate primers are hybridized on the arrayed DNA templates and extended by DNA polymerase on microarrays. In this method, a different set of degenerate primers containing a given number (n) of degenerate nucleotides(More)
Dietary supplementation of selenium-enriched tea is known to have an anticancer health benefit. This study was to investigate the inhibitory effect of selenium-containing tea polysaccharides (Se-GTPs) from a new variety of selenium-enriched Ziyang green tea against human MCF-7 breast cancer cells. Se-GTPs dose-dependently exhibited an effective cell growth(More)
Early growth response gene 1 (EGR1) has been implicated in megakaryocyte differentiation induced by phorbol ester. But the molecule mechanism of EGR1 in this process has not been widely investigated. The identification of direct EGR1 target genes in a global scale is critical for our understanding of how EGR1 contributes to this process. In this study, we(More)
PCR-product microarray has great efficiency in SNP genotyping, mutation screening and epigenetic analyzing from a large number of samples. The current PCR-product microarray technology is mostly based on the 3-D gel microarray technologies due to its high loading capacity for PCR products, while there is little progress for PCR-product microarray on planar(More)
We present a fiber-optic extrinsic Fabry-Perot interferometer pressure sensor based on a nanothick silver diaphragm. The sensing diaphragm, with a thickness measured in a few hundreds of nanometers, is fabricated by the electroless plating method, which provides a simple fabrication process involving a high-quality diaphragm at a low cost. The sensor(More)
