The Mpv17 gene encodes a mitochondrial inner-membrane protein that has been implicated in several cell activities. Almost all studies have previously indicated that loss of function or gene-inactivated in Mpv17 can induce the development of disease. Here, we explored the roles of Mpv17 protein in the pathophysiology of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). An ICH(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the therapeutic effects in acupunture treatment of primary dysmenorrhea combined with spinal Tui Na, and study its mechanism. METHODS Thirty cases of the treatment group were treated by acupuncture combined with spinal Tui Na, and thirty cases in the control group were treated by routine acupuncture. RESULTS The total effective rate(More)
Far Upstream Element (FUSE) Binding Protein 1 (FBP1), first identified as a single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) binding protein that binds to the FUSE, could modulate c-myc mRNA levels and also has been shown to regulate tumor cell proliferation and replication of virus. Typically, FBP1 could active the translation of p27kip1 (p27) and participate in tumor growth.(More)
Somatostatins are peptide hormones that regulate diverse cellular processes, such as neurotransmission, cell proliferation, apoptosis, and endocrine signaling as well as inhibiting the release of many hormones and other secretory proteins. SSTR1 is a member of the superfamily of somatostatin receptors possessing seven-transmembrane segments. Aberrant(More)
Adenylate cyclase-associated protein 1 (CAP1), a member of cyclase-associated proteins that regulating actin dynamics, was shown to regulate actin filaments, localize to dynamic actin structures and mediate such processes as establishment of cell polarity, motility, morphogenesis, receptor-mediated endocytosis and mRNA location. But little is known about(More)
K-homology splicing regulator protein (KHSRP), a multifunctional RNA-binding protein, was originally thought to primarily control mRNA decay. KHSRP was shown to be involved in p38MAPK, NF-κB and the JAK2-STAT-1a pathways. Besides, KHSRP regulated neuronal localization of beta-actin and microtubule-associated protein 2 (MAP2) mRNAs, respectively. However,(More)
Adenylate cyclase-associated protein 1 (CAP1), a member of cyclase-associated proteins involved in the regulation of actin filaments, was recently reported to play a role in the pathology of sciatic nerves injury. However, the distribution and function of CAP1 in the central nervous system (CNS) remain unclear. To investigate whether CAP1 is involved in CNS(More)
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been widely applied and recognized in the treatment of brain injury; however, the correlation between the protective effect of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and changes of metabolites in the brain remains unclear. To investigate the effect and potential mechanism of hyperbaric oxygen therapy on cognitive functioning in rats, we(More)
Hypoxia-inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α), a well-identified hypoxia-related protein, is involved in regulating the biological functions of various cell types including neurons. The traditional biological function of HIF-1α is promoting the transcription of some pro-survival genes when exposing to low oxygen conditions. Meanwhile, some studies also point out(More)
Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy helps alleviate secondary injury following brain trauma [traumatic brain injury (TBI)], although the mechanisms remain unclear. In this study, we assessed recovery of post-TBI spatial learning and memory in rats using the Morris water maze (MWM) and measured changes in apparent diffusion coefficient in the hippocampus by(More)
