High-speed counter-current chromatography was successfully applied for the first time to the isolation and purification of the bioactive carotenoid zeaxanthin from the cyanobacterium Microcystis aeruginosa. The crude zeaxanthin was obtained by extraction with organic solvents after the microalgal sample had been saponified. Preparative high-speed(More)
It is well known that ox-LDL plays key roles in the development of atherosclerosis, partly by inducing vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) proliferation. Recent findings have revealed that microRNAs, a class of small noncoding RNAs, could regulate cell proliferation in many physiological and pathological conditions. However, the role and function of miRNAs(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of paeoniflorin and total flavones extracted from Qixue Bingzhi Recipe on proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) cultured in endothelial cell conditioned medium (EC-CM) induced by oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) and the expressions of platelet-derived growth factor and its receptor genes. METHODS(More)

In this study, we try to evaluate the effects of acupuncture stimulation with different amounts at Sanyinjiao (SP6) on uterine contraction and uterus microcirculation in rats with dysmenorrhea of cold coagulation syndrome and to explore whether there is direct relativity between "De qi" and needle stimulus intensity. Diestrus female rats were randomly(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe effects of electroacupuncture (EA) on the expression of kappa-opioid receptor in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord and contents of enkephalin(ENK) and beta-endorphin (beta-EP) in the periaqueductal gray (PAG) of midbrain in dysmenorrheal rats, so as to reveal its underlying mechanism in relieving dysmenorrhea. METHODS A total of 80(More)

A systematic analysis was made on the correlation between acupoints and pathological changes of the zang-fu organs through reviewing of literatures in the database of CNKI from 1959--2011 and the database of Pubmed of the past 10 years. The result showed that specificity was found on the pathological changes of zang-fu organs when acupoints were stimulated.(More)
