Long-chain triglycerides (LCTs) intake strongly stimulates GIP secretion from enteroendocrine K cells and induces obesity and insulin resistance partly due to GIP hypersecretion. In this study, we found that medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) inhibit GIP secretion after single LCT ingestion and

Hydrophobic charge-induction chromatography (HCIC) is a novel downstream bioprocessing technology for antibody purification and it has several advantages over traditional purification processes. However, its separation selectivity still needs to be improved. In this work, sodium caprylate (NaCA) was used as
