Marine fungi are recognized as an abundant source of extracellular polysaccharides with novel structures. Mangrove fungi constitute the second largest ecological group of the marine fungi, and many of them are new or inadequately described species and may produce extracellular polysaccharides with novel functions and structures that could be explored as a(More)
Reaction of the antimalarial and anti-schistosome drug artemether (1) and catalytic amount of ferrous ion in the presence of excess cysteine gave two adducts of cysteine and previous postulated primary and secondary carbon-centred free radicals besides their other rearrangement products. This piece of further evidence for the presence of carbon-centred(More)
Two extracellular polysaccharides, ENP1 and ENP2, were isolated from the fermentation liquid of the marine fungus Epicoccum nigrum JJY-40 by anion-exchange chromatography and gel-filtration chromatography, and their structures were investigated using chemical and spectroscopic methods including methylation analysis and NMR spectroscopy. The results(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain the coronary artery and coronary sinus (CS) and its tributaries imaging with multislice computed tomography (MSCT), measure the distance between coronary artery and CS and its tributaries and analyze their spatial relationships. METHODS The MSCT scans of 117 patients (67 men, 50 women, age 56 +/- 10 years) were obtained, 3D image(More)
UNLABELLED Kawasaki disease (KD) is associated with the development of coronary arterial lesions (CALs) in children. We aimed to test the hypothesis that circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 [25-(OH)D3] could be identified as a clinical parameter for predicting CALs secondary to KD in children. We enrolled 35 children with KD in the acute phase and measured(More)
Effect of cathode materials (S1, S2, AB5, graphite, Ni plate, Fe plate) on the electrochemical reduction of nitrobenzene of light concentration under mild conditions(current density less than 1.0 mA/cm2, pH in the range of 4 - 9), was experimentally studied. In aqueous solution, S1, S2 and AB5 electrodes showed high selectivity of nitrobenzene reduction to(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the surgical management of tumors in the conjunctive area among the neck, thorax and axilla and its efficacy. METHODS From Oct. 1999 to March 2006, eleven cases with benign tumors in the area between the neck, thorax and axilla were collected and analysed. Among them, five neurilemmoma, three neurofibroma, two chondroma and one(More)
Dual thermo- and pH-responsive chromatography has been proposed using poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-butyl methacrylate-co-N,N-dimethylaminopropyl acrylamide) (P(NIPAM-co-BMA-co-DMAPAAM)) brushes grafted gigaporous polystyrene microspheres (GPM) as matrix. Atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) initiator was first coupled onto GPM through Friedel-Crafts(More)
AIM To prepare and characterize streptavidin-tagged murine interleukin-15 fusion proteins. METHODS pET24a-SA-L-mIL15 and pET21a-mIL15-L-SA plasmids were constructed and expressed in Rosetta (DE3) host bacteria to generate SA/mIL15 fusion proteins. SA-mIL15 fusion protein was purified through the Ni-NTA affinity chromatography, and mIL15-SA fusion protein(More)
OBJECTIVE To obtain streptavidin-tagged human interleukin-15 (SA/hIL15) fusion protein and evaluate its bioactivity. METHODS pET24a-6His-SA-hIL-15 and pET32a-hIL-15-SA-6His plasmids were constructed and expressed in BL 21(DE3) host bacteria to generate the fusion protein. The recombinant fusion protein IL-15/SA was purified using Ni-NTA affinity(More)
