The ARGOS gene in Arabidopsis plays a key role in controlling plant organ size. To determine the function of it's ortholog in rice, a putative ARGOS orthologous gene from rice tissues was isolated and designated as OsARGOS. This gene has only one copy in the rice genome. OsARGOS transcripts were detected in most of rice tissues, particularly in the young(More)
This study attempted to enhance the efficacy of peripheral nerve regeneration using our previously tested poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA) conduits by incorporating them with allogeneic Schwann cells (SCs). The SCs were harvested, cultured to obtain confluent monolayers and two concentrations (1 x 10(4) and 1 x 10(6) SC/ml) were combined with a collagen matrix(More)
A novel efficient method for purifying and testing colloidal gold probes has been developed. The method consists of concentrating colloidal gold particles conjugated to IgG or protein A in dialysis bags over silica gel and purifying them by gel chromatography on small columns of Sephacryl S-400. Fractions collected are tested by paper immunocytochemical(More)
A novel cyclobutane class of nonpeptidic glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists, exemplified by 3, was identified using receptor binding and multiple response element/cAMP response element (MRE/CRE)-driven reporter gene assays. The structures of 3 and its three isomers were elucidated by NMR, HRESIMS, and X-ray crystallography. A series of(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of salvianolic acid A (SAA) on L-type calcium current (I-CaL) in isolated ventricular myocytes of Sprague-Dawley rats. METHODS SAA powder was dissolved in normal Tyrode's solution to reach the concentrations of 1, 10, 100, and 1000 μmol/L. The traditional whole-cell patch-clamp recording technique was employed to evaluate the(More)
CuI-catalyzed coupling of 2-halobenzylamines with beta-keto esters or 1,3-diketones in i-PrOH under the action of K(2)CO(3) produced 1,2-dihydroisoquinolines as the coupling/condensative cyclization products, which underwent smooth dehydrogenation under air atmosphere to afford substituted isoquinolines.
CuI-catalyzed coupling of 1-bromo-2-iodobenzenes with beta-keto esters in THF at 100 degrees C leads to 2,3-disubstituted benzofurans. This domino transformation involves an intermolecular C-C bond formation and a subsequent intramolecular C-O bond formation process. Benzofurans with different substituents at the 5- and 6-position are accessible by(More)
Benefit from the microbial activities especially the anaerobic sulfate reduction processes, sewage sludge could be used as a barrier to immobilize the heavy metals leached from tailings. With respect to the redox reaction between sewage sludge and acid mine drainage (AMD), oxidation titration test was carried out to study the effect of oxidation buffer(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of the separate and joint use of salvianolic acid B (SalB) and tetrahydropalmatine (THP) on the L-type calcium channel of rat ventricular myocytes. METHODS Single isolated ventricular myocytes of rats were obtained using acute enzymolysis separation. The current of the L-type calcium channel was recorded using whole-cell(More)
