BACKGROUND BmK IT2 is regarded as a receptor site-4 modulator of sodium channels with depressant insect toxicity. It also displays anti-nociceptive and anti-convulsant activities in rat models. In this study, the potency and efficacy of BmK IT2 were for the first time assessed and compared among four sodium channel isoforms expressed in Xenopus oocytes.(More)
Oudemansiella radicata has been found to have ability to tolerate and accumulate heavy metals. In this study, to know about the metal tolerance and detoxification strategy of O. radicata, the tolerance responses in both cap and stipe of the fruiting body, including the copper content, the changes of thiol compounds production and antioxidant enzymes(More)
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a worldwide pathogen that is resistant to practically the entire class of β-lactam antibiotics due to the presence of the mecA gene. The mecA gene is located on a large mobile genetic element referred to as staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec), and the excision and integration of SCCmec are(More)
There has been an absence of an efficient method of gene knockdown in the important human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus like RNA interference in eukaryotes. The previously developed antisense RNA technology is mainly applied for forward genetic screening but is rather limited in specific gene knockdown because of the lack of rational antisense RNA design(More)
