A xylosidase gene, gsxyn, was cloned from the deep-sea thermophilic Geobacillus stearothermophilus, which consisted of 2,118 bp and encoded a protein of 705 amino acids with a calculated molecular mass of 79.8 kDa. The GSxyn of glycoside hydrolase family 52 (GH52) displayed its maximum activity at 70 °C and pH 5.5. The K m and k cat values of GSxyn for ρNPX(More)
Endo-β-1, 4-xylanase was cloned from Geobacillus stearothermophilus 1A05583 by PCR. Enzymes with improved catalytic efficiency were obtained using error-prone PCR and a 96-well plate high-throughout screening system. Two variants 1-B8 and 2-H6 were screened from the mutant library containing 9000 colonies, which, when compared with the wild-type enzyme(More)
A new xylanase gene (xynA) from the marine microorganism Zunongwangia profunda was identified to encode 374 amino acid residues. Its product (XynA) showed the highest identity (42.78 %) with a xylanase from Bacillus sp. SN5 among the characterized xylanases. XynA exhibited the highest activity at pH 6.5 and 30 °C, retaining 23 and 38 % of the optimal(More)
A novel gene (BmelA) (1323bp) encoding an α-galactosidase of 440 amino acids was cloned from the deep-sea bacterium Bacillus megaterium and the protein was expressed in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3) with an estimated molecular mass of about 45 kDa by SDS-PAGE. The enzyme belongs to glycoside hydrolase family 4, with the highest identity (74%) to(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the patient satisfaction with medications commonly used for migraine therapy in patients seen in headache clinic in China with emphasis on the evaluation of Chinese patent medicine (CPM) in relieving acute migraine attack. METHODS Patients admitted at headache clinics in the neurological departments of four hospitals during April(More)
A novel gene (amyZ) encoding a cold-active and salt-tolerant α-amylase (AmyZ) was cloned from marine bacterium Zunongwangia profunda (MCCC 1A01486) and the protein was expressed in Escherichia coli. The gene has a length of 1785 bp and encodes an α-amylase of 594 amino acids with an estimated molecular mass of 66 kDa by SDS-PAGE. The enzyme belongs to(More)
Pantoea agglomerans endo-β-1, 4-mannanase (Man26P) hydrolyzes hemicellulose by cleaving the internal bonds in the mannan-based chains. In order to obtain improved enzymes and understand the structure-function relationship better, Man26P was engineered using a modified DNA shuffling method and a 96-well plate high-throughput screening technology. Compared to(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility of surface tractotomy of trigeminal nerve sensory root (STS) for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia (TN). METHOD Seven patients with TN were operated on using the STS. The six patients were followed up for 4.8-9.8 years. The trigeminal nerve root (TNR) obtained from 30 cadavers were performed microanatomical(More)
