Antimicrobial peptides are components of the innate immune systems in animals and plants as natural defense against pathogens. Critical issues like manufacturing costs have to be addressed before mass production of these peptides for agriculture or community sterilizations. Here, we report a cost-effective chemical synthesis method to produce antimicrobial(More)
Sketching is a natural way for one person to convey their thoughts and intentions to another. With the recent rise of tablet-based computing, the use of sketching as a control and interaction paradigm is one that deserves exploration. In this paper we present an interactive sketch-based music composition and performance system called Drawchestra. The aim of(More)
A hypothesis is postulated that high content of hydrogen donors and acceptors, and basic amino acids cause the intracellular trapping of the H+ and Cl- ions, which increases cancer risks as local formation of HCl is mutagenic to DNA. Other cations such as Ca2+, and weak acids such as short-chain organic acids may attenuate the intracellular gathering of the(More)
Viral infections are major ongoing challenges to mankind. The theory of cytokine storm cannot fully account for the virulence of some highly infectious viruses with high mortality rates. Although numerous viruses are capable of lysing animal and human cells in vivo, viral protein-derived peptides are mostly mild in standard culture conditions in in vitro(More)
Bacillus coagulans TQ33, isolated from skimmed milk powder, displays strong antifungal activity against plant pathogenic fungi. The antifungal compound of the B. coagulans TQ33 culture was extracted by thin-layer chromatography and column chromatography, and its structure was elucidated based on HPLC, LC-MS, and NMR analysie. The antifungal compound was(More)
