Interleukin (IL)-27, which has both pro and anti- inflammatory properties, is a new discovered heterodimeric cytokine that belongs to IL-12 family. However, the expression pattern and functional role of IL-27 in viral myocarditis (VMC) has not been investigated. BALB/c mice were intraperitoneally (i.p) infected with Coxsackie virus B3 (CVB3) for(More)
In animal cells, actions of acetylcholine depend on its binding to specific receptors. Activation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor can affect the membrane permeability to ions directly. As concerned about acetylcholine regulating stomatal movement, nicotinic acetylcholine receptor may also be involved. Experiments with nicotinic acetylcholine receptor(More)
The inward rectified potassium current of Vicia faba guard cell protoplasts treated with acetylcholine (ACh) or the antagonists of its receptors were recorded by employing the patch clamp technique. The results show that ACh at lower concentrations increases the inward K(+) current, in contrast, ACh at higher concentrations inhibits it. Treated with(More)
