We study a parametrized definition of gene clusters that permits control over the trade-off between increasing gene content versus conserving gene order within a cluster. This is based on the notion of generalized adjacency, which is the property shared by any two genes no farther apart, in the linear order of a chromosome, than a fixed threshold parameter(More)
Of all the causes identified for the disease hyper-immunoglobulinemia E syndrome (HIES), a homozygous mutation in tyrosine kinase2 (TYK2) and heterozygous mutations in STAT3 are implicated the defects in Jak/STAT signalling pathway in the pathogenesis of HIES. Mutations of STAT3 have been frequently clinically identified in autosomal-dominant (AD) HIES(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to develop calcium phosphate nanocomposite particles encapsulating plasmid DNA (CP-pDNA) nanoparticles as a nonviral vector for gene delivery. METHODS CP-pDNA nanoparticles employing plasmid transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-β1) were prepared and characterized. The transfection efficiency and cell viability of(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the growth inhibition activity of Flammulina velutipes sterol (FVS) against certain human cancer cell lines (gastric SGC and colon LoVo) and to evaluate the optimum microemulsion prescription, as well as the pharmacokinetics of encapsulated FVS. METHODS Molecules present in the FVS isolate were identified by gas chromatography/mass(More)
There are various definitions of a gene cluster determined by two genomes and methods for finding these clusters. However, there is little work on characterizing configurations of genes that are eligible to be a cluster according to a given definition. For example, given a set of genes in a genome, is it always possible to find two genomes such that their(More)
Capsaicin has multiple pharmacological activities including antioxidant, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory activities. However, its clinical application is limited due to its poor aqueous solubility, gastric irritation, and low oral bioavailability. This research was aimed at preparing sustained-release matrix pellets of capsaicin to enhance its oral(More)
Porphyran is a sulfated polysaccharide extracted from Pyropia, a genus of marine red algae. In this study, the biological activity of porphyran from Pyropia yezoensis as an oral hypolipidemic agent in Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) mice was investigated. Porphyran lowered serum triglyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC), and low-density lipoprotein(More)
Our previous studies have demonstrated that PMS1077, a platelet-activating factor (PAF) antagonist, could induce apoptosis of Raji cells. However, the mechanism of action has not yet been determined. The nuclear transcription factor-kappa B (NF-κB) signaling pathway plays a critical role in tumor cell survival, proliferation, invasion, metastasis, and(More)
CONTEXT Recent studies have demonstrated that baicalin has antihyperglycemic effects by inhibiting lipid peroxidation. Baicalin is low hydrophilic and poorly absorbed after oral administration. Thus, a suitable formulation is highly desired to overcome the disadvantages of baicalin. OBJECTIVE The objective of this work was to prepare baicalin-loaded(More)

Aromatic amines (AAs) are chemicals of industrial, pharmacological and environmental relevance. Certain AAs, such as 4-aminobiphenyl (4-ABP), are human carcinogens that require enzymatic metabolic activation to reactive chemicals to form genotoxic DNA adducts. Arylamine N-acetyltransferases (NAT) are xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes (XME) that play a major(More)
