The regulation of gene expression in the brain reward regions is known to contribute to the pathogenesis and persistence of drug addiction. Increasing evidence suggests that the regulation of gene transcription is mediated by epigenetic mechanisms that alter the chromatin structure at specific gene promoters. To better understand the involvement of(More)
In order to substantiate the concept that cocaine behavioral effects may be influenced by histone modification, rats were trained to self-administer cocaine intravenously (0.75 mg/(kginjection)), and were systemically pretreated with sodium butyrate (NaBu), a potent histone deacetylase inhibitor, before the test session during the maintenance phase. The(More)
We investigated the role of histone H3 phosphoacetylation in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) in heroin-conditioned place preference paradigm. Heroin could dose-dependently increase histone H3 phosphoacetylation specifically in the NAc and could enhance heroin place preference. Injection of trichostatin A into the NAc significantly augmented heroin-induced(More)
The protein LMO3 belongs to the LIM only (LMO) group of transcriptional regulators, which act as molecular adaptors for protein-protein interactions. However, little is known about its interactive proteins and functions. Evaluating LMO3 in a yeast two-hybrid screen, we identified the calcium- and integrin-binding protein CIB as an LMO3-binding protein,(More)
Impaired inflammatory functions may be critical factors in the mechanisms of severe CNS disorders classified as the human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1)-associated dementia (HAD). Evidence indicates that a viral gene product, the transactivator of transcription protein (Tat), can markedly contribute to these events. We herein report that sulfated(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 infection of the central nervous system occurs in the vast majority of HIV-infected patients. HIV-associated dementia (HAD) represents the most severe form of HIV-related neuropsychiatric impairment. The pathogenesis of HAD is mediated by disruption of neuronal cell signal pathways, which ultimately triggers neuronal(More)
A novel and simple electroless Ni–Cu–P plating process was used for preparing corrosion-resistant and electromagnetic interference shielding wood-based composite. The effects of CuSO4·5H2O concentration, pH value in the plating solution and operation temperature on the metal deposition, surface resistivity, chemical composition, corrosion resistance and(More)
Visual tracking has extensive applications in intelligent monitoring and guidance systems. Among state-of-the-art tracking algorithms, Correlation Filter methods perform favorably in robustness, accuracy and speed. However, it also has shortcomings when dealing with pervasive target scale variation, motion blur and fast motion. In this paper we proposed a(More)
Using chitosan (CS)-modified wood as a scaffold, a magnetic surface was constructed via a simple in situ synthesis method in this paper. The effects of iron ions concentrations on crystalline structure and magnetic properties of the composite were investigated. The composites were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray powder diffraction(More)
