The objective of the present study was to demonstrate the effect of polyanionic copolymer mPEG-grafted-alginic acid (mPEG-g-AA)-based polyion complex (PIC) micelles on enhancing the oral absorption of salmon calcitonin (sCT) in vivo and in vitro and identify the transepithelial transport mechanism of PIC micelles across the intestinal barrier. mPEG-g-AA was(More)
The objective of this work was to explore the potential of ultraflexible liposomes as carriers for improving the absorption of salmon calcitonin (sCT) through intranasal administration. The average diameters of positively charged ultraflexible liposomes ranged from about 73 to 99 nm, while those of negatively charged ones were 114 and 157.6 nm,(More)
A novel Gram-stain-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped, agar-digesting bacterial strain, designated HQM9T, was isolated from the surface of the marine red alga Gelidium amansii collected from the intertidal zone of Weihai, China. Cells of HQM9T were 3.0-4.0 μm long and 0.2-0.3 μm wide and lacked flagella. The new isolate grew optimally at 28-30(More)
This paper describes the synthesis and characterization of the first series of hydrogen bonding-driven hydrazide foldamers and their recognition for alkyl saccharides in chloroform. Oligomers 1, 2-4, 5, 6, and 7, which contain one, two, four, six, or twelve repeated dibenzoyl hydrazide residues, respectively, have been prepared. The rigid and planar(More)
A novel Gram-stain negative, red, rod-shaped, non-motile and aerobic bacterial strain, designated Sy30T, was isolated from dry soils of an abandoned marine saltern at Weihai, China. 16S rRNA sequence analysis indicated that strain Sy30T belongs to the genus Pontibacter in the family Cytophagaceae, with sequence similarities ranging from 93.3 to 96.4 % with(More)
A novel agarolytic, Gram-stain negative, heterotrophic, facultatively anaerobic and pale-white pigmented bacterial strain, designated Q1T, was isolated from the marine alga Porphyra yezoensis Ueda (AST58-103) collected from the coastal area of Weihai, China. The cells are motile by means of peritrichous flagella. The isolate requires NaCl for growth, while(More)
Strain FA028T, a beige-pigmented, facultatively anaerobic, heterotrophic, catalase-negative and oxidase-positive, Gram-stain-negative bacterium, was isolated from marine sediment of the coast of Weihai, China. Cells of strain FA028T were rod-shaped, 1–3 μm in length and 0.5 μm in width. The strain was able to grow at 13–37 °C, at pH 7.0–9.5 and in the(More)
A yellow-pigmented, Gram-stain-negative and facultatively anaerobic bacterium, designated FB218T, was isolated from a sediment sample collected from a sea cucumber culture pond in Rongcheng, China (36° 54′ 36″ N 122° 14′ 34″ E). Cells of strain FB218T were slender, gliding, catalase-positive and oxidase-negative. Optimal growth occurred at 30 °C, pH 6.5–7.0(More)
A bacterial strain, designated SYD6(T), was isolated from a marine solar saltern on the coast of Weihai, Shandong Province, PR China. Cells of strain SYD6(T) were rod-shaped, red, and approximately 5.0-9.0 μm in length and 0.4-0.6 μm in width. The strain was Gram-stain-negative, facultatively anaerobic, heterotrophic, catalase-positive and oxidase-negative.(More)
A novel Gram-stain-negative, yellow, rod-shaped, facultatively anaerobic, gliding bacterial strain, designated Gy8T, was isolated from the surface of Gracilaria blodgettii. This bacterium was able to degrade various polysaccharides, especially agar and alginate. The major cellular fatty acids (>10 % of the total fatty acids) were C15 : 0, iso-C15 : 0, C15 :(More)
