Pseudoginsenoside-F11 (PF11), a component of Panax quinquefolism (American ginseng), plays a lot of beneficial effects on disorders of central nervous system. In this paper, the neuroprotective effect of PF11 on Parkinson's disease (PD) and the possible mechanism were investigated in a rat PD model. PF11 was orally administered at 3, 6, and 12 mg/kg once(More)
OBJECTIVES Xiaochaihutang (XCHT) has been used in China for thousands of years to treat 'Shaoyang syndrome', which involves depressive-like symptoms. However, no studies were conducted to demonstrate its antidepressant effect and mechanism. This study was designed to confirm the antidepressant effect of XCHT and explore its mechanism using the(More)
Xiao Chai Hu Decoction (XCHD), named Sho-saiko-to in Japanese, is a well-known traditional Chinese medicine formula used in Asia. However, the characterization methods used in the past have lacked sensitivity and the nature of the active constituents of XCHD remains unclear. This study was carried out to establish the hyphenated method of bioactivity-guided(More)
OBJECTIVES Oxidative stress (OS) may play a critical role in cell aging and neurologic disorders that are often seen in Down syndrome (DS) patients. The aim of this study was to determine the antioxidant enzyme level and lipoperoxidation status in blood from DS children. DESIGN AND METHODS In a cross-sectional study, we recruited a total of 36 DS children(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate PHEX gene mutations in 2 patients with X-linked hypophosphatemic rickets (XLH) and their families and to clarify the genetic etiology. METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed for the clinical data of two patients with XLH. High-throughput sequencing was used to detect the PHEX gene, a pathogenic gene of XLH. PCR-Sanger(More)
High hydrophilicity of gigaporous microspheres based on a copolymer of poly(glycidyl methacrylate)-co-divinyl benzene (PGMA-DVB) was successfully realized through coating the branched polyethyleneimine (PEI) in PGMA-DVB microspheres. PEI with various molecules weights and different branching agents were identified in terms of protein recovery as evaluation(More)
DNA methylation is a major epigenetic mechanism regulating gene expression. In order to analyze the impact of the one‑carbon unit cycle on the overall level of DNA methylation in children with Down's syndrome (DS), the levels of indicators associated with the one‑carbon unit cycle, including folic acid (FA), vitamin B12 (VB12) and homocysteine (Hcy), and(More)
