We studied the effects of two bifidobacteria strains isolated from healthy centenarians on intestinal function in mice. Bifidobacterium adolescentis BBMN23 and Bifidobacterium longum BBMN68 were orally administrated to specific pathogen-free BALB/c mice at different doses (2 × 1011, 2 × 109, or 2 × 107 CFU/kg body weight) each day for 4 weeks.

An organo-montmorillonite-supported nanoscale zero-valent iron material (M-NZVI) was synthesized to degrade decabromodiphenyl ether (BDE-209). The results showed that nanoscale zero-valent iron had good dispersion on organo-montmorillonite and was present as a core-shell structure with a particle size range of nanoscale iron between 30-90 nm, characterized(More)
The full-length cDNA that encodes the MRE-binding transcription factor (MTF) was cloned from the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) using reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and the rapid amplification of cDNA ends. The cgMTF cDNA sequence is 2892 bp long, with a 2508 bp open reading frame that encodes an 835-amino acid polypeptide. Multiple(More)
Tilapia skin gelatin (TSG) was studied in a 3-stage process (cooling, annealing, and heating) for pure gelatin gels and in a 4-stage process (acidification, cooling, annealing, and heating) for acid milk gels and cultured yogurt. The aim was to evaluate the use of TSG as a replacement for mammalian gelatin in yogurt. In pure TSG gels, stronger gels with(More)
