The residual activities of transgenic corn-derived and 2 commercial microbial phytases (PA and PB) along the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of laying hens were compared to evaluate their relative resistance to hydrolysis in the GIT when added to P-deficient diets. The treatments consisted of a negative control (NC) diet containing 0.10 nonphytate P and an NC… (More)
Granular cell tumours of the neurohypophysis are very rare. Their aetiology and nature are uncertain. Most investigators consider them to arise from pituicytes or Schwann cells of the posterior lobe of the hypophysis. They are found most commonly in older people. A surgically proven symptomatic case is reported.
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) at different acupoints on the expression of gamma aminobutyric (GABA) receptor (R) subunit genes in the cervical spinal cord in rats with thyroid regional inflammatory pain so as to analyze its analgesic mechanism for thyroid surgery. METHODS A total of 50 Wistar rats were randomized into control,… (More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) at bilateral "Futu" (LI 18), etc. on the expression of 5-HT 1 A receptor (R) mRNA, 5-HT2 AR mRNA and protein in the spinal cord of rats with neck incision pain, so as to explore its underlying mechanism in relieving incision pain. METHODS A total of 48 Wistar rats were randomly divided into… (More)
OBJECTIVE To study the specific correlation between "Jinggu" (BL 64) and "Dazhong" (KI 4) in the nervous system by using a double-labeling of cholera toxin subunit B conjugated with Alexa Fluor 488 and 594 (CTB-Alexa 488, 594) in rats, so as to investigate its neuroanatomical basis for clinical joint-application of Yuan-Source and Luo acupoints. METHODS… (More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) on cortical spreading depression (CSD) and contents of plasma calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and substance P (SP) in migraine rats. METHODS Thirty male SD rats were equally randomized into control, model and EA groups. Migraine model was established by topical application of KCI (3 mol/L)… (More)
