Obesity, which is a key risk for the development of hyperglycemia, hypertension, hyperlipidemia and insulin resistance and is totally referred to as the metabolic disorders, has aroused people's great attention because of its alarming increase rate around the world. It is widely known that the occurrence of obesity can be attributed to both environmental(More)
Utilizing biomaterials to regulate the phenotype and proliferation of chondrocytes is a promising approach for effective cartilage tissue regeneration. Recently, a significant amount of effort has been invested into directing chondrocytes toward a desired location and function by utilizing biomaterials to control the dedifferentiation and phenotypic loss of(More)
The management of chondral defects has long been a challenge because of the poor self-healing capacity of articular cartilage. Many approaches ranging from symptomatic treatment to structural cartilage regeneration have obtained very limited satisfactory results. Cartilage tissue engineering, which involves an optimized combination of novel scaffolds, cell(More)
A series of moisture-resistant konjac glucomannan films were prepared by coating shellac/stearic acid emulsion on deacetylated konjac glucomannan films (dKGM). The effect of stearic acid content on structure and properties of the coated films were investigated by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy(More)
Distributed storage, high performance computing, and next-generation e-science applications have long been research interests of the networking and computing communities. Such applications generally require that large volumes of data be transferred from one place to another, or a set of steering and control operations from a centralized node be distributed(More)
Cyclic nigerosylnigerose (CNN), a saucer-shaped cyclic tetrasaccharide with a shallow concave surface, was reacted with pyromellitic dianhydride in 1:2 and 1:4 ratios to give two CNN-based polymers of different degrees of crosslinking, both of which swelled upon soaking in water, acting as a ‘nanosponge’ (NS). These NSs evolved several phases from isotropic(More)
