Studies using rat models have indicated that neuronal apoptosis is involved in the pathogenesis of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH); however, the mechanism by which apoptosis occurs is unclear. In the present study, we aimed to quantify the number of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB)-positive cells and apoptotic cells in specimens of middle temporal gyrus taken from(More)
Capsid protein (Cap), the only structural protein of porcine circovirus 2 (PCV2), is involved in the host protective response and is a target for vaccine development. To find a rapid and easy way to fully map the antigenic epitopes of Cap, purified Cap-specific polyclonal antibodies were used to screen a random heptapeptide phage display library. After(More)
Activation of E prostanoid 4 receptor (EP4) shows neuroprotective effects in multiple central nervous system (CNS) lesions, but the roles of EP4 receptor in subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) are not explored. This study was designed to research the effects of EP4 modulation on early brain injury (EBI) after experimental SAH in rats. We found that the(More)
RlmM is an AdoMet-dependent methyltransferase that is responsible for 2'-O-methylation of C2498 in the peptidyl-transferase loop of bacterial 23S rRNA. This modification occurs before assembly of the 50S ribosomal subunit, and lack of C2498 methylation can cause a slight reduction in bacterial fitness. Here, the purification and crystallization of RlmM from(More)
BACKGROUND The Brain Trauma Foundation (BTF) guidelines published in 2007 suggest some indications for intracranial pressure (ICP) monitoring in severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, some studies had not shown clinical benefit in patients with severe TBI; several studies had even reported that ICP monitoring was associated with an increased(More)
