RESEARCH INTERESTS:

The main interest of our group is the structural determination of polysaccharides in medicinal herbs. Polysaccharides such as Ganoderma lucidum (靈芝), Dendrobium houshanens (霍山石斛) and Cordyceps sinensis (冬蟲夏草) were isolated to study their biological activities and structural SAR. For characterization of polysaccharides we used HPAEC, GC-MS, CE, NMR, glycanase and MALDI-MS spectrum to investigate structures of oligosaccharides and polysaccharides. We also developed some convenient and efficient methods to label poly-, oligosaccharides which can be useful on purification and detection. A series of aldose-imidazole and aldose-bis-indole derivatives with fluorescence active was synthesized for composition analysis and chiral resoluation of monosaccharides from medicinal herbs. Research work in Yang laboratory covers several areas:

  • Organic chemistry (有機化學)
  • Carbohydrates chemistry (醣化學)
  • Natural product chemistry (天然物化學)
  • Saccharides analytic chemistry (醣分析化學)
  • Asymmetric catalytic reaction (不對稱催化反應)

研究靈芝多醣調節免疫系統及抗癌活性的生化功能及多醣體之化學組成,利用化學及酵素方法降解高分子量的靈芝多醣,純化並鑑定出較小分子量的靈芝多醣。設計和合成與人類疾病有關的病毒或細菌之蛋白分解酵素抑制劑,以有機磷衍生的縮氨酸(peptides)類似物來仿傚酵素活性中心的過渡狀態,達到抑制蛋白分解酵素的目的。
