Bisphenol A (BPA) is a ubiquitous environmental endocrine disrupting compound (EDC); public health concerns have been fueled by findings that maternal BPA exposure can change sex differences in the brain and in some behaviors. We investigated whether a physiologically relevant dose of BPA ingested by male rats before conception would affect spatial memory(More)
Prospective studies on the association of green tea with risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) incidence were scarce. This study examined whether green tea can reduce CHD incidence and have a beneficial effect on CHD-related risk markers in middle-aged and older Chinese population. We included 19,471 participants who were free of CHD, stroke or cancer at(More)
Compelling epidemiological evidence suggests that the consumption of green tea is associated with beneficial effects in prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) is known to play a pivotal role in cardiovascular diseases including arteriosclerosis and hypertension. Increased PAI-1 was found in atherosclerotic lesions,(More)
Light alcohol consumption was reported to be negatively associated with insulin resistance and risk of cardiovascular diseases; however, the results were inconsistent. We here investigate whether long term intake of low-concentration ethanol can affect adiponectin levels. Male Wistar rats were exposed to 0.1% ethanol in drinking water for 26weeks. Visceral(More)
Men who have sex with men (MSM) have become one of the populations with severely HIV prevalence in China. However, very few genetic studies have been done on HIV-1 spreading in this population. In this study, the genetic characterization of HIV-1 strains prevalent in the MSM in Shijiazhuang, China, was analyzed basing on the HIV-1 full-length gag, pol, and(More)
OBJECTIVE Hypoadiponectinemia contributes to the development of obesity and related disorders such as diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and cardiovascular diseases. In this study we investigated the effects of green tea polyphenols (GTPs) on adiponectin levels and fat deposits in high fat (HF) fed rats, the mechanism of signaling pathway was explored as well.

Hyperglycemia-induced endothelial hyperpermeability is crucial to cardiovascular disorders and macro-vascular complications in diabetes mellitus. The objective of this study is to investigate the effects of green tea polyphenols (GTPs) on endothelial hyperpermeability and the role of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) pathway. Male Wistar(More)
New photoresponsive block copolymers (BCPs) have been developed by incorporating photocleavable units. These photocleavable units are derived from robust photolabile protecting groups (PPGs); UV irradiation cleaves the BCPs and releases a well-defined chemically active functional group at the cleaved end of a PS polymer.
Epidemiological findings on the association between bisphenol A (BPA, 2,2-bis-(4-hydroxyphenyl)propane) exposure and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are paradoxical. In animal studies, BPA has been shown to disrupt pancreatic function and blood glucose homeostasis even at a reference 'safe' level during perinatal period. In this study, we explored the(More)

Algorithm of page ranking is the core of search engine. This paper proposes a new type of algorithm of page ranking by combining classified tree with static algorithm of page ranking-PageRank, which enables the classified tree to be constructed according to a large number of users' similar searching results, and can obviously reduce the problem of(More)
