    The protective effects of chitosan oligosaccharide (COS), D-glucosamine (GlcNH2) and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (GlcNAc) on carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) induced hepatotoxicity in male ICR mice were investigated and the possible mechanisms involved were discussed . CCl4(20mg/kg body weight) administration induces marked increase in serum AST and ALT activities, primes liver lipid peroxidation, depletes sulfhydryl content, impairs total antioxidant capabilities (T-AOC) and induces genotoxicity 24h after administration. Pretreatment with COS, GlcNH2, and GlcNAc (1.5g/kg body weight) for 12 consecutive days prior to CCl4 challenge significantly induces metallothionein (MT) expression. Thus, the antioxidant defensive system in the body is strengthened to counteract the oxidative damage induced by the CCl4 administration. Serum AST and ALT activities are effectively decreased. Hepatic malondialdehyde (MDA) formation is inhibited, and sulfhydryl contents and T-AOC are markedly restored. Genotoxicity as reflected by DNA fragmentation, however, it is not mitigated by pretreatment with COS, GlcNH2, and GlcNAc. The results suggest that pretreatment with COS, GlcNH2, and GlcNAc can efficiently protect mice against CCl4-induced toxicity, of which GlcNH2 is the most effective.

    A proteomics technology platform on hepatopancreas of Chinese shrimp (Fenneropenaeus chinensis) with white spot syndrome was established. These methods were used to search for and identify the differential proteins between shrimp with WSS and normal shrimp. 2DE (4~7 IPG, 10%SDS-PAGE) was used to separate total proteins. Silver nitrate was applied to stain the proteins. 2-dimensional maps were analyzed by Imagemaster 6.0 (GE). The peptides mass fingerprint was obtained by MOLDI-TOF. After analysis by Data Explorer, differential proteins were identified using Mascot on line. Hepatopancreas proteomics 2-dimensional maps of shrimp with WSS and normal shrimp were obtained, and 203 and 107 protein spots were identified, respectively. Several differential proteins were screened and identified. Several helpful suggestions were given on experimental procedures. A proteomics technology platform including 2DE and Bio-Mass Spectrometry was proved to be valuable in the study of the immunity and other physiological phenomena of shrimp. It is helpful in seeking drug targets for the therapy of diseases.

    Yujin (tubers of Curcuma longa) is a type of Chinese medicinal herb which has good effects in invigorating the circulation of blood and preventing cancer and other chronic diseases. The simultaneous determination of K+, Na+, Cu2+, Zn2+, Mn2+, Ca2+ and Mg2+ by capillary electrophoresis with indirect UV detection was studied in a background electrolyte system composed of imidazole, 2-hydroxy isobutyric acid (HIBA) and sulfuric acid. All ions were baseline resolved within 10 min. The applicability of this method was tested by investigations of reproducibility and linearity of the calibration. The detection limit is in the range 0.1~0.5mg/L. The reproducibility is less than 0.4% for migration time and less than 5% for the peak area of most inorganic cations. The calibration graphs are linear for most ions in the concentration range of 10-5~10-2 mol/L (R2=0.991~0.998). The quantitative determination of the seven ions in Yujin was well carried out by using the developed method.

    Thermal decomposition kinetics of chitosan, β-cyclodextrin and starch were studied by using thermogravimetric analysis methodology. The degradation activation energies of chitosan, β-cyclodextrin and starch were calculated by the Ozawa and Friedman methods respectively by means of TGA in a nitrogen atmosphere. Moreover, the decomposition mechanism and pre-factor was obtained by the Coats-Redfern method. It was found that the degradation activation energies of chitosan, β-cyclodextrin and starch are 147.1,129.1 and 148.3 kJ/mol, respectively. The decomposition mechanisms and lnA are -ln(1-α), 7.7838min-1; [-ln(1-α)]2/5, 8.6499min-1; [-ln(1-α)]1/2, 7.8688min-1 respectively.

    The K-G equation is changed by substituting the variable into the formal of the one differential to time at first, which is the formal of the Schrdinger equation. A simple treatment is given to the problem of finding the solution in a time-dependent potential. The treatment is based on the use of the Lewis-Riesenfeld invariant method. Finally, two relative cases are discussed, the solution of the K-G equation for the time-independent potential in relativistic systems and the solution of the K-G equation for the time-dependent potential in nonrelativistic systems.

    Based on the total-reflection phase transformation theory of phase retardation, spectral characterization of the phase retardation varying with refractive index is analyzed, by means of the Fresnel rhomb. The result indicates that in the designed center of the wavelength, the retarder is not only confined within the low dispersive medium, but high-index material with higher dispersion can also obtain good achromatism, and at the same time the bigger angle of total reflection can improve achromatism of the phase retarder. So the theoretical basis is provided for optimizing achromatism of the rhomb-type retarder and the material selecting scope can be extended.
