Glucose repression is one of the main limitations in mixed lignocellulosic sugar fermentation for cost-effective production of fuels and chemicals. Here we report a novel strategy to overcome glucose repression by co-expressing a cellobiose transporter and a β-glucosidase in an engineered d-xylose-utilizing Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain. The resulting(More)
Various polysaccharides purified from plants are considered to be biological response modifiers and have been shown to enhance immune responses. Ficus carica L. is a Chinese traditional plant and has been widely used in Asian countries for its anti-tumor properties. Ficus carica polysaccharides (FCPS), one of the most essential and effective components in(More)
It is known that chronic HBV infection (CHB) is the major risk factor for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) because CHB could not only cause liver tumorigenesis but also lead to change of local microenviroment and lower immune response to infected and cancerous cells (immune tolerance). Human leucocyte antigen-G (HLA-G) belongs to a non-classic MHC-I family(More)
