Maternal alcohol consumption during pregnancy has detrimental effects on fetal central nervous system development. Maternal alcohol consumption prior to and during pregnancy significantly affects cognitive functions in offspring, which may be related to changes in cyclin-dependent kinase 5 because it is associated with modulation of synaptic plasticity and(More)
Acute exposure to hydrogen sulfide (H2S) poses a significant threat to life, and the lung is one of the primary target organs of H2S. However, the mechanisms involved in H2S-induced acute pulmonary edema are poorly understood. This study aims to investigate the effects of H2S on the expression of water channel aquaporin 5 (AQP5) and to elucidate the(More)
The fractal theory is widely used in the multi-server mobile video monitoring system which is based on streaming media communication technology and it's self-adaptive combination arithmetic. The fractal compression coding method is different from the traditional image compression coding method. Firstly, it makes the least size division. Secondly, it(More)
Nodal modulator 1 (NOMO1), a highly conserved transmembrane protein, has been identified as a part of a protein complex that participates in the Nodal signaling pathway, a critical determinant of heart and visceral organ formation. We previously found that the NOMO1 gene was substantially downregulated in human ventricular septal defect (VSD) myocardium(More)
The purpose of this paper is to examine the effects of polydatin on cognitive function in rats self-administered with chronic ethanol levels. The levels of cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (Cdk5) were also determined. In the in vivo study, adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were used to establish an ethanol-administered rat model. Cognitive function was measured using(More)
AIMS To investigate the impact of sortilin-related receptor 1 gene 1 (SORL1) and peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPAR G) gene single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), gene- gene and gene- environment interactions and haplotype on late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) risk. METHODS Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (HWE), haplotype analysis and(More)
To date, most jawed vertebrate species encode more than one immunoglobulin light (IgL) chain isotypes. It has been shown that several bird species (chickens, white Pekin or domestic duck, and zebra finches) exclusively express lambda isotype. We analyze here the genomic organization of another bird species turkey IgL genes based on the recently released(More)
