BACKGROUND Resveratrol has shown potent antioxidant activity in ischemia models. The present study was performed to determine whether resveratrol protects against cerebral ischemia-induced neuronal and myocardial injury by interfering with mitochondrial homeostasis. METHODS Wistar rats were pretreated with resveratrol or vehicle intraperitoneally for one(More)
The risk of nanoparticles (NPs) to organisms and the environment has become more noticeable alongside their rapid applications in many fields. The release of Cd(2+) from CdTe-based NPs (CdTe-NPs), an important class of engineered nanomaterials, is one of the possible factors responsible for the cytotoxicity of these NPs. Based on the same CdTe core,(More)
NBS1 gene plays an important role in DNA repair. Many epidemiological studies have investigated the association between NBS1 8360G > C polymorphism and breast cancer, however, the results are still controversial. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis of 10 case–control studies. Crude odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to(More)
Glutathione S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) is involved in a wide range of detoxifying reactions. Any alteration in the structure, function, or expression of GSTP1 gene may alter the ability of a cell to inactivate carcinogens or mutagens, and thus modify an individual’s risk to cancer. Previous epidemiological studies on the potential association between GSTP1(More)
Enterohepatic recirculation (EHR) occurs via biliary excretion and intestinal reabsorption of a drug. Drug recycling through EHR can lead to a change in pharmacokinetic (PK) properties, such as reduced clearance (CL), extended half-life (T(1/2)) and increased plasma exposure (AUC). As a result, EHR may prolong the pharmacological effect of drugs. In the(More)
Nitrobenzene (NB) is a toxic compound that is often found as a pollutant in the environment. The present removal strategies suffer from high cost or slow conversion rate. Here, we investigated the conversion of NB to aniline (AN), a less toxic endproduct that can easily be mineralized, using a fed-batch bioelectrochemical system with microbially catalyzed(More)
Genetically engineered zinc-finger nucleases (ZFNs) are useful for marker-free gene targeting using a one-step approach. We used ZFNs to efficiently disrupt bovine myostatin (MSTN), which was identified previously as the gene responsible for double muscling in cattle. The mutation efficiency of bovine somatic cells was approximately 20%, and the biallelic(More)
A new strategy using a hybrid linear ion trap/Orbitrap mass spectrometer and multiple post-acquisition data mining techniques was evaluated and applied to the detection and characterization of in vitro metabolites of indinavir. Accurate-mass, full-scan MS and MS/MS data sets were acquired with a generic data-dependent method and processed with extracted-ion(More)
We herein report that experimental murine amyloid A (AA) deposition is accelerated by oral administration of semipurified amyloid fibrils extracted from different species. Three groups of mice were treated with semipurified murine AA amyloid fibrils, semipurified bovine AA amyloid fibrils or semipurified human light chain-derived (A(lambda)) amyloid fibrils(More)
A novel electrode, carbon felt-supported nano-molybdenum carbide (Mo2C)/carbon nanotubes (CNTs) composite, was developed as platinum-free anode of high performance microbial fuel cell (MFC). The Mo2C/CNTs composite was synthesized by using the microwave-assisted method with Mo(CO)6 as a single source precursor and characterized by using X-ray diffraction(More)
