Rapid identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing of microorganisms causing bloodstream infections or sepsis have the potential to improve patient care. This proof-of-principle study evaluates the Lysis-Filtration Method for identification as well as antimicrobial susceptibility testing of bacteria directly from positive blood culture bottles in(More)
There has been considerable interest in the effect of heat shock proteins (HSPs) on the innate immune system. Whether HSPs have any direct effects on the activation of lymphocytes is not clear. Using gene expression array, protein array and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, we demonstrated that highly purified recombinant murine Hsp60 (rmHsp60),(More)
Heat inactivation by boiling has been widely used as a criterion to determine whether the observed effects of a protein preparation are a result of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) contamination. However, the heat sensitivity of LPS cytokine-inducing activity has not been characterized. In the current study, we demonstrated that the endotoxin activity, i.e.,(More)
In this research, the effects of two new retinoids, SX-115 and CHU-012, on promyelocytic leukemia cell line NB4 were studied in vitro. Cell proliferation, cell morphologic characters, cell cycle kinetics, reduction ability of NBT, differentiation antigens, immunofluorescence staining and RT-PCR were adopted as the observational parameters. The results(More)
In this research, the effect of novel retinoid SX-116 on acute promyelocytic leukemia cell line NB4 was studied in vitro. Cell proliferation, cell morphological characters, flow cytometry, DNA electrophoresis and RT-PCR were observational parameters. The results showed that treated with SX-116 at 10(-6) mol/L, the growth and survival of NB4 cells were(More)
