Cholinergic interneurons, which provide the main source of acetylcholine (ACh) in the striatum, control the striatal local circuits and deeply involve in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. Glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) is a crucial kinase with diverse fundamental functions and accepted that deregulation of GSK-3 activity also plays(More)
Previous studies have shown that genetic factors might have an important role in blood pressure (BP) responses to dietary salt or potassium intake. The aim of this study was to assess the association of common genetic variants of the adiponectin gene with BP responses to controlled dietary sodium or potassium interventions. Subjects (n=334) from 124(More)
We have investigated the spectral responsivity of porous silicon Schottky barrier photodetectors in the wavelength range 0.4-1.7 mum . The photodetectors show strong photoresponsivity in both the visible and the infrared bands, especially at 1.55 mum . The photocurrent can reach 1.8 mA at a reverse bias of 6 V under illumination by a 1.55-mum , 10-mW laser(More)
