C-reactive protein (CRP) and β-amyloid protein (Aβ) are involved in the development of Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the relationship between CRP and Aβ production is unclear. In vitro and in vivo experiments were performed to investigate the association of CRP with Aβ production. Using the rat adrenal pheochromocytoma cell line (PC12 cells) to mimic(More)
Fentanyl, a potent opioid analgesic that is used to treat cancer pain, is commonly administered with paclitaxel in advanced tumors. However, the effect of fentanyl on the hepatotoxicity of paclitaxel and its potential mechanism of action is not well studied. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of fentanyl on the hepatotoxicity of(More)
To identify amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers associated with resistance or susceptibility of alfalfa to common leafspot (CLS) caused by the fungus Pseudopeziza medicaginis (Dermateaceae), bulked segregant analysis was conducted based on an F(1(M × M)) population of 93 plants and a BC(1)S population of 91 plants. Three AFLP markers,(More)
Major depressive disorder is a common, but serious, psychiatric dysfunction that affects 21% of the population worldwide. Rolipram, a first-generation phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4) inhibitor, has been shown to have significant antidepressant and cognitive enhancement effects; however, it was unsuccessful in clinic trials because of PDE4-dependent side effects(More)
Photocyanine is a novel anticancer drug. Its pharmacokinetic study in cancer patients is therefore very important for choosing doses, and dosing intervals in clinical application. A rapid, selective and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) method was developed and validated for the determination of(More)
